All My Children’s, Walt Willey (Jackson Montgomery) spoke with The Times over the weekend while in Ottawa prepping for a production of Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite! Willey offered up his thoughts and concerns on the news that AMC will be soon moving to the web. Willey stated, “Everyone I’ve spoken to, in terms of actors, not a soul has been contacted.” The actor is speaking of Prospect Park, the entity who bought the rights to AMC & OLTL.
A longtime veteran of AMC, Willey believes that few All My Children fans are Internet-savvy, and is skeptical about how some might be able to see new episodes. “It’s an interesting choice. The fans have worked very hard on our behalf, but this could be a hollow victory for them.
According to the The Times, All My Children is on a production hiatus, with shooting to resume Monday, July 25, and wrap prior to Labor Day weekend. The final ABC episode is due to air Friday, Sept. 23.
