Now that ABC has the legal rights to the characters and the series, All My Children and One Life to Live, the possibilities are endless as to just who, or how, or when someone from these iconic legacy soaps might be worked into the current story on the sole ABC soap left standing, General Hospital!
Fans are already abuzz that Hillary B. Smith is reprising her role as Nora Buchanan beginning March 6th, but there may be more in the works!
In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH EP Frank Valentini expressed: “Many people out there are still mourning the loss of All My Children and One Life to Live, and they still have great affection for and memories of those shows. So if there is an opportunity to inject someone else, without infringing on the General Hospital brand, I think it’s a fun thing to do and it’s exciting for us.”
Thus AMC stalwarts Susan Lucci and Michael E. Knight were posed the question if they would consider reprising their Daytime Emmy winning roles as Erica Kane and Tad Martin. Lucci said, “I would have to know what the storyline would be and if I ‘m in the right hands. If they wanted me to do it, of course, I would listen to them.” Michael Knight was enthused stating: “Why not? If General Hospital wanted me, I’d be all for it!”
