I remember the shock when I saw the great stage actor Kathleen Widdoes on a soap. At the time, my mom observed that soaps are where actors (and others) begin and where they end. When I worked off Broadway, the dedication and talent of Broadway stars and off Broadway actors was often made possible by their work in daytime.
AMC is on the chopping block. It features some terrific actors and I wonder if the network is truly counting downloads.
In any event, if you’re a fan or in the biz and don’t want to see all reality, all the time – you might want to take a stand. Just saying …
Fans are urged to call 818.460.7477 for ABC’s automated feedback line — and then enter the following numbers at the prompts: 1, 2, 3, and 255. This will allow fans to leave a recorded message to express their love of All My Children. (soapcentral.net)
P.S. Obviously the numbers have to go up but downloads anyone?
