On-Air On-Soaps was on the set of AMC last week when Susan Lucci made the announcement to the press on this new way to honor the shows 40th celebration. When asked when she looks at all the photos of her and the cast, is there a moment in time that stands out for her, Lucci replied “I did not expect to be so touched by these photos. It is wonderful opportunity to think about those times and the fun places we had gone. There is one photo representing every year we have been on the air. Many of the AMC fans have life memories and personal memories of the show attached with these. When I see these images, I recall so many scenes with Frances Heflin (Mona) and Ruth Warrick (Phoebe) and all the scenes we had together. It was a different time back then. We shot each episode it as if it was a play from beginning to end. I don’t know how we did, but we did. But it was a great bonding experience to be humiliated in front of each other that way. (Laughs) But, it was such a great learning experience for me. When I first started on AMC, I would get advice on men from Ruth Warrick on the set!”

Later, when asked how she felt looking back at her original headshot from the series, that is part of the archive series available for fans, Lucci responded, “I personally had very little experience, so to come and do some headshots, I did not know enough to be afraid. I just went ahead. I was happy with the outcome and my hair is naturally wavy. It was a summer day when they did this shoot, and so I was very happy how this came out!” (Laughs)
