Alexa Havins on her 'All My Children' return: 'I didn't think it was going to happen'

22 July 2011 6:16 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

With all the nerds, geeks and fanboys fawning over Alexa Havins, the easy-on-the-eyes addition to "Torchwood: Miracle Day," we almost forgot to ask her about one very important thing during her Comic-Con visit...

Her Return to "All My Children."

Now, we admit that current state of the canceled-by-abc/saved-by-the-Internet soap has us more than a little confused -- especially given this latest twist from Daytime Confidential -- but at least we know there'll be more of Babe Carey Chandler.

"It's more for the fans than anything," says Havins. "Granted I am in love with the actress who plays my mom, Bobbie Eakes, and there's so many lovely people there. But it's more for the fans, to give them that cherry on top... that closing of a chapter."

One might think that chapter would have ended with Babe's tornado-induced death in 2007, but the writers clearly have something cooking.

RIP, AMC and OLTL: Stars From Daytime and Primetime Sound Off on ABC's Scrubbed Soaps

15 April 2011 11:15 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

The final stage of grief — Acceptance — is still a ways off for the casts, crews and viewers of All My Children and One Life to Live, the pair of long-running soaps ABC has decided to cancel as of September and February, respectively. But the first stage, Denial, seemingly is behind us, if only because rumors of the possible (evil) twin killing swirled weeks ago.

In the wake of ABC Daytime boss Brian Frons handing down the official word, here is what some soap stars present and past — as well as a few primetime peers — had to say about the saddest »

Soap Operas: Can They Survive?

8 April 2011 10:17 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

"All My Children" is hanging on for dear life.

After moving the entire production from New York to Los Angeles to save money, publicly cutting the paycheck of its most well-known star, and eliminating long-time cast members, the show still remains on the chopping block. What's a classic show to do?

Bobbie Eakes, a cast member on the show, has been feverishly tweeting polls and petitions directed at ABC executives. "AMC is not being cancelled! But now is a great time to let the network know you'd like to keep it that way," she tweeted, adding a smiley emoticon for good measure.

If ABC followed through with its cancellation, "All My Children" would join a long line of recent soap opera casualties. "Guiding Light," which premiered on CBS in 1952 after fifteen years on the radio, was cancelled in 2009, and "As the World Turns" followed in September 2010, airing the last episode of its 54-year run. »
