According to reports, one of All My Children’s favorite baddies, Billy Clyde Tuggle, is returning to Pine Valley! That means that actor Matthew Cowles is resurrecting his oh-so-infamous role on the revival of the series when he debuts on May 16th!
The back-story: Billy Clyde was was presumed dead in a 1990 following a bridge confrontation with Tad (Michael E. Knight)! According to Soap Opera Digest, “A show rep, relates that the super-villain now runs an escort service and will be involved in Angie and Jesse’s quest to find her missing daughter, Cassandra. Expect Billy Clyde to also interact with Dixie, who had been the unwilling object of his deranged affection.” Oh-oh! This sounds pretty juicy is you ask us, with lots of story potential and fall-out!
Matthew Cowles was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the Supporting Actor category for his work on All My Children in 1981, and he is married to actress Christine Baranski!
