The one and only Susan Lucci filled TV Guide in this evening on the final moments of taping the final network television scenes of All My Children!
Lucci stated, “It just didn’t seem real. Walking out on to the set for my first scene yesterday morning, I have to say, I started to feel it, I had to rein my emotions back in because I had to work … but the setting was spectacular! Perfect for the last day of shooting. There are a lot of feelings. There’s pride and excitement and gratitude and joy and celebration — and still a cloud over us because we don’t know.” (Lucci referring to how things will work out with the Prospect Park online move and deals with the actors and the crew.)
The soap legend went on to say that the upcoming AMC final network television reported cliffhanger is going to be very exciting! “Oh, I think it’s spectacular! To me, knowing how Agnes writes, it was not shocking that she would do that. Like any great novel, when you put it down you say, ‘Well, then what?’ I knew she wouldn’t tie it up in a neat bow, and she really didn’t. There are several cliff-hangers.”
As far as if Lucci will seal the deal with Prospect Park she had this to offer, “I can only say that we’re in conversations. We are in conversations. That’s where we are My heart is there. I think it’s a very, very exciting possibility. I think that Prospect Park, the men involved there, have a wonderful, successful track record … It could be very exciting, especially with Agnes and Lorraine.”
So what do you think soapers? Do you like the idea of a cliffhanger to end AMC on ABC? Do you think Susan will sign on the dotted line when Pine Valley moves to the Internet? Let us know your thoughts!
