Well what can we say about this terrific video from the folks at The Online Network and All My Children! Soap opera actress and daytime drama director and producer extraordinaire, Francesca James is back working on AMC, but not behind-the-scenes as a director or a producer or executive producer, as she has done previously with AMC, and in part with General Hospital, but as one of the new online revival characters named Evelyn Johnson! But is she really “Evelyn Johnson”? That remains a big question!
Daytime and AMC fans remember Francesca for her role as Kitty Shea Tyler, and later as her identical twin Kelly Cole! Francesca also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 1980 for her work on AMC! In this newly released video which landed first at TV Guide, “Meet Francesca James”, the talented woman is seen coming back to work for the first time in AMC’s new Connecticut studios, and having some very humorous banter in the dressing room hallways with co-star Thorsten Kaye (Zach Slater). In addition, Julia Barr (Brooke) and Vincent Irizarry (David) add their comments on having this true soap legend back in the saddle as one of the series cast members!
And yes, you will hear On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman asking Francesca questions and commenting on her return to All My Children during the clips from an interview conducted at the Sleepy Hollow cast photo shoot in New York City a few months back.
So what do you think of Francesca playing a role on-camera on the new All My Children? Who do you think Evelyn Johnson will turn out to be? Related to who? What will be her “drama”? Share your thoughts below!
