27 January 28th, 2013 Jill Larson’s Video Message To Fans On Shooting New Episodes Of All My Children!

You can’t have Pine Valley without Opal Gardner there! And the folks at Prospect Park knew that too! Now although fan favorite Jill Larson (Opal) had been already announced as joining the revival of All My Children, Larson posted a very special video message to her fans with the help of Soap Opera Socialite Productions!

The message taped on January 23rd was just posted online over this past weekend on January 26th and in it, Larson details that in just 32 days, she and other cast members will be gathering in Stamford Connecticut to begin shooting new episodes of AMC.

Additionally,  Larson points out that come April fans should be seeing the new episodes online, which confirms what OLTL new co-head writer, Thom Racina had alluded to previously in a facebook post.

So if you do the math, it would be 32 days from January 23rd when the message was posted for when things will kick-off in terms of projected production of AMC.  Watch Jill’s message after the jump, and then let us know what you thought of it!

    Love her and this was very sweet of her to post. I sure hope they announce more actors soon so we can really look forward to this. Why have we not heard a word about Rebecca Budig or Eden Riegel or Walt Wiley?

    I heard Eden Riegel has other projects going on same thing with Cameron Mathison

    I see no reason why Susan Lucci couldn’t do it part time. Her show is starting soon so they must have filmed most of the episodes. Who knows if the show ill even make it past the first season because some shows are not doing well and then the networks cancel them. Anyway, the show needs Erica and Jackson and also her two daughters and Jack’s daughter Greenlee.

    Susan Lucci is going to be on Lifetime Devouis Maids by Marc Cherry who wrote Desparate Housewives.Abc is going to put it on Lifetime after the fallout over GCB.She also has a show on Discovery ID.

    This all just keeps getting better and better! And I think we can live without LaLucci if we have to. Would like to see Susan back, but so many key players are getting on board, I think the show will do great regardless!

    So glad that Opal will be back. Hopefully Susan/Erica will be able to come back, what is AMC without Erica? But I’d also love for Tad and Dixie to be back full time also.

    Want to see Tad,Jack,Jake,Krytal.Greenlee ask to.eed as many as the orginals as they can get.Sine they have a baker now they can afford good quality soaps.They change it nd phase these stars out I will not watch for a cheaper younger version.Didn’t fight all this time to make a different soap.

    They will have to do some re-casting of roles, whether fans like it or not – they can “write around” Kendall for a while and they can “write around” Erica. But many of the actors have moved on to other projects. As long as they have the basic actors they will be able to maintain a semblence of what Pine Valley was ~ but fans will have to accept new actors, even if it’s on a temporary basis. I think there have been four Bianca’s by now, they can re-cast that role surely once again and other supporting roles but I do understand that recasting Erica Kane and Adam Chandler would be difficult for fans to accept.

    The worst ting that could happen to AMC is to bring 3 times dead Dixie back, again .. :)

    incorrect!! dixie’s return was importanat when she returened the last year of AMC , and its always good for Tad’s daughter Kate with her,but ty for your mistaken opinion!! lol..

    “Mistaken opinion”? Classy.

  12. Johnny says:

    Actor Jacob Young who played J.R. from (I think) 2003 – 2011 is currently not available due to being on another daytime drama. So, I heard that they are
    re-casting the role of J.R. ~ an important role as he is Adam Chandler’s self-destructive and not always so likable son. I think that we can expect to see many
    other casting changes, but if they are competent actors assuming the roles I think it would be acceptable to fans over time.

    YES IT WILL , HE’S ON B&B, AND MANY ACTORS CAN BE RELACED ITS HAPPENED BEUCOUP TIMES ON MANY SOAPS IF NOT ALL !! J.R. WOULD BE A GREAT ROLE FOR ANY YOUNG ACTOR!! LET’S HOPE THEY CAST WELL !

    I am suspecting that either Tad or Erica was the shooting victim and is in a coma. Opal would be at the bedside of Both. Later when SL or MK are available then they can wake up. Remember SL didn’t first appear in 1970 until a week later.
