Long time All My Children fan favorite Michael E. Knight is sorely missed these days as Tad Martin on the revival of the series from TOLN and Prospect Park. Knight is keeping busy though, and will be seen in a fantastic guest star role on an upcoming episode of Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva on the July 14th episode!
TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan caught up with Knight to ask him not only about his guest star turn but if he plans on finally making a return to Pine Valley and All My Children, where the character of Tad has been recently talked about on new episodes!
Knight has this to say if a return is imminent to AMC: “For sure I will be back. You know, the reason I didn’t want to continue with AMC when Prospect Park took over was that I had done the show for 20 years straight and one move cross-country in two years was enough for me. I was tired! Plus I felt I had done everything there was to do on the show. I came back from the dead. I was twins. I had amnesia. I did everything but give birth and marry Erica! But I’m definitely up for a visit so, yeah, Tad will make his presence known in Pine Valley. Maybe not really soon but someday. And I mean that. “
Knight on leaving Cady McClain (Dixie) solo on the new AMC : “Now she knows how I felt. [Laughs] She died twice and was gone for ages. Now she knows what I had to deal with! I love Cady. ”
So AMC fans, are you optimistic that Michael will be back as Tad sooner than later? Do you think a big piece of life in Pine Valley is missing without him? Share your thoughts!
