After his appearance at the premiere of All My Children and One Life to Live back in late April in New York City, Michael Nader was suspect in that Prospect Park’s AMC was bringing him back to the series to revive his fan favorite character of Dimitri Marick!  Well, today TOLN confirmed that Nader is indeed back in Pine Valley and has been shooting episodes for a few weeks now!

In this morning’s TOLN press release it states: “It’s been more than a decade since actor Michael Nader’s Dimitri Marick stepped foot in Pine Valley, but thanks to Prospect Park’s The OnLine Network, longtime fans can look forward to reuniting with Nader’s brooding character when he returns to the beloved series series on June 3rd.   Brooke English played by actress Julia Barr, has offered Dimitri a job as head of one of Chandler Enterprises new divisions – Chandler Media – which he gratefully accepts. How will Pine Valley residents react to Dimitri’s return after all these years?

All My Children fans fell in love with Nader’s role as Dimitri when he first appeared on the show back in 1991. His passionate romance with Susan Lucci’s Erica Kane made Nader half of one of television’s first power couples.

Regarding his return to the series, Nader said, “I got a call from executive producer Ginger Smith who said Prospect Park is relaunching All My Children online.  She said ‘we’d love for you to come back.’ And I said, ‘you want me, you got me.’  Being back, is like being home.”

So AMC fans, delighted to hear of the confirmation that Nader is back as Dimitri? How do you think he will shake up things on the canvas? Who do you think would be a good romantic partner for Dimitri this time out?  Let us know your thoughts!

    I would say he looks like death warmed over …

    … but that would be insulting death. What the heck happened to him over the past dozen years? More drugs obviously.

    He looks awful, but drug and alcohol addiction will do that to you.

    Who the hell said he was addicted to Drugs or Alcohol? You do realize that he was not “Young” the last time he played Dimitri and that was 10 years ago!

    clh replied

    Um, the press and AMC when they fired him for his 2nd DUI and his drug arrest.

    Ashley replied

    Actually Jolie fan….Michael Nader said he had
    addiction problems. You can read the full transcript

    I was just expressing my opinion! He does look quite different from years ago. I know people get older but some look better than others. Your remark wasn’t necessary..

    susan M. replied

    Didn’t rememeber he was arrested for drugs. That might be a factor in the way he looks now. OKAY!

    Mo replied

    I wouldn’t say terrible. Certainly quite different than we remember, but he’s 10 years older. Hopefully wiser. And has probably been through the ringer.

    He’s almost 70, how is he supposed to look? This isn’t 1995 anymore.

    Patrick replied

    Well if I remember it correctly he was fired because he was arrested for drugs a couple of times. So that would explain why he looks horrible. (I think he does)

    Mo replied

    That’s all I think of when I hear his name. The drug thing.

    Hopefully he’s clean now.

    He does look a little gaunt. His hair is gone, by choice or nature, so I think that’s why he is unrecognizable to some.

    AMC is ALOT better than it was on ABC.. it was unwatchable, which is why i stopped watching. I tuned in to see jesse/angie get reunited.. and the finale.. but now that it’s back, the writing is ALOT better and it’s got me HOOKED.

    I already knew Michael Nader would be back, glad to see that it’s now confirmed. I’m really glad he’s returning! He looks fine to me, just older & less hair. He may have had his problems but haven’t we all had some drama in our lives?!! Michael is a welcome addition & I can’t wait to get involved in his storyline! AMC & OLTL have been fantastic….thank you Prospect Park!!! Now if we could just get Tad, Roxy, & a few others……

    Awesome news for AMC fans. Dimitri first appeared as Natalie’s (Kate Collins) rescuer when her twin sister, Janet (also Kate Collins) kidnapped her, threw her down a well, and left her there while she impersonated Natalie. Nader was fired from AMC years later, and replaced with another actor… and then the character was written out of the show. His return a decade later is sure to excite fans. Good work, Prospect Park!

    I have no recollection of the character of Dimitri being portrayed by another actor. Michael Nader was good in the role, not sure though why it is necessary to bring him back. I would concentrate more on getting Tad Martin back and Erica Kane – but, whatever the producers decide is all right I guess.
    As for his physical appearance, well, we all get older, he wasn’t exactly a kid when he introduced the character – wasn’t he also on DYNASTY back in the day? Few remember that he was also in many of those Frankie/Annette Beach Party flicks also -

    OMG!! This is amazing, yes he has had troubles over the years, but hopefully he’s learned from them!!!! I would DIE if Edmund turned up alive!!!! Or maybe they could recast Dimitri’s son, Anton and bring him back as well!!!!! Have they explained where Ryan and Greenlee are??? Or have they been mentioned???

    I like Dimitri as a character but he doesn’t really fit in with the storyline unless Erica is around. I have to say Zach and Dimitri and even Jesse and angie’s storyline needs some work, / dunutru reakkt beeds /erucaj Jabe,

    Gawd- the comments here are awful. The rumors people still throw around about this man are pathetic. Either post a picture of yourself, as you tear another human being apart so we can rip you apart, or shut up.
    Welcome home, Mr. Nader! Glad to have you back! You’ve been missed!

    Thanks, Dee! I couldn’t agree more.

    Great to see he is back. I hope he is off the drugs and I remember when he was arrested for driving under some influence with his young daughter in the car. If he has overcome this ,more power to him,and if he looks older so do we all.I always like Dimitri. Welcome home. He may look different but his very distinct voice will be known when its heard

    If you have ever been close to anyone with an addiction problem (as I have) you would know how great it is to see them back working again and hopefully living a clean life. Michael Nader, you are still sexy even though you look a little older (guess what? So do I!) and I wish you all the luck in the world in this new venture. Can’t wait to see you shine on the new AMC!

    I absolutely adored Dimitri Marick back in the day, not only was Michael Nader a fine actor at that time, he was just plain FINE too look at. I recognized him right away when I saw him. Yes, he’s aged, so have they all. I am one who doesn’t like the botox look on men, I like a man’s natural looks, they often get better with age, such as Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, and others. I think Michael Nader is distinguished looking and I certainly hope that his bad-boy days are gone for good. I am so glad he has returned to the show and I hope that Susan Lucci will return as Erica as well. This was a super hot couple.
