All My Children: Hypothetically Speaking


Here’s something to think about, hypothetically speaking. We know that Beth Ehlers isn’t on contract at Guiding Light. We know that there have been a lot of rumors that All My Children was actively pursuing her since they just signed her former co-star Ricky Paull Goldin. Initial rumors had it that Ehlers might end up as Hayley Vaughan Santos. Now there is a rumor going around that she may be Liza Colby Chandler. So in the interest of having some fun with these rumors….

Hypothetically speaking, if Elhers would in fact join All My Children would you like to see her as Hayley, Liza or someone else?

    For some reason I can’t picture her as Hayley, but I can definitely see her as Liza!! She’d be the perfect fit for that role and I think there’d be more for her to do as Liza too.

    I really don’t see her re-cast as either characters but there are enough new characters running around Pine Valley and since we know, the real Liza has retired I’d prefer her as a recast for Liza. There’s always hope that Ripa may one day return as our sweet Haley.

    See I think Beth can pull off Liza’s edge. I’d love to see her do something completely different than Harley. Plus I think there’s so much more s/l potential with Liza.

    I think she would make a good Liza. She is around her age and besides we need Liza around especially when Greg Nelson appears.  Having the old gang around will be cool!!!!!!!

    Oh, I would love for KU to be Liza too!! You got me on that one, lol!!

    It’s true that Ehlers still looks really young, but Debbie Morgan still looks like she’s in her late 20s to me, so I would totally buy them being old classmates!

    I think there’s story there for Hayley, but Liza is Adam’s ex, plus the history she’s got with Tad and Jake, and like you mentioned there’s Colby, and the Colby/Frankie thing makes the Angie/Liza/Jesse dynamic even more interesting. Plus I want to see Ethers’ Liza get her snark on with Krystal :)

    Either way Ehlers would be a great addition to the cast!!

    I can go for Beth as Liza. I can’t as Hayley only because that means the love story of Hayley and Mateo ended and I’d rather think of Hayley happy and in love than her leaving Mateo.

    Liza, on the other hand, would have all the reasons in the world for returning now that Colby is in PV. Plus with Jesse and Angie back, the dynamics would be interesting given how Liza had grown to see her and Jesse try to bury the hatchet…

    Beth should play a new character altogether. She is too young to be a Liza recast and like someone else said Hayley belongs to Kelly Ripa.

    I would prefer her as Liza for a multitude of reasons, Adam, Colby, Marion, Kendall, Erica, and Tad to name a few. If she were to join as Haley then you know that she will be immediately thrown into fusion and if I see another talented actress wasted on the fusion green….errr….black hole that is Fusion I’m going to scream.

    I’ve never watched GL, so I’ve have never seen Beth act.

    I don’t want her as Haley because, like williamjc said, that would mean a break up between her and Mateo. Would she leave her boys with Mateo? Or would she bring them to AMC?

    As Liza, she is Adam’s ex and Colby’s mom, also Tad’s friend. Colby could use her mom now. She’s too young to be worrying about her dad all the time.

    i like all the actresses, but kelly has moved on and while i respect and honor her performance i think a recast would be ok. on the other hand, i don’t think a recast will work for marcy. she is liza. and i think casting beth would change the character’s age.

    You think so? See I think there’s more there with Hayley. Sure Liza’s daughter is in town, but Hayley is the daughter of the show’s villain, she has a drinking problem, a past with Ryan, she’s Amanda’s cousin, Kendall’s rival…Plus Ehlers just does not look old enough to have been Jesse and Angie’s high school rival. I’d go with a slightly older actress like Kim Johnston Ulrich (Ivy, Passions) for Liza.

    YES!!!!!!!!! Now, I can totally see Kim as Liza. Beth looks too young to play her.

    She’d make a great Hayley. Harley and Hayley are essentially the same character, except Hayley didn’t have children with all her bad romantic choices. They’re both spunky, smart-mouthed and romantic. Who I can’t see Beth as is Liza. Even though she’s changed a lot since her Mean Girl High School years Liza is still pretty icy and conniving. Although maybe I am selling Beth short. She was quite snarky when she played Irna Phillips on GL!

    Ripa will return the same day Sarah Michelle returns as Kendall. Hayley is a legacy character, they can’t keep her on ice forever in hopes of an actress who has gone on to superstardom coming back. I love K. Rip, but the show must go on.

    Hayley has had a myriad of careers, she worked at Chandler, ran Enchantment, a night club and was last a talk show host, who says they would have to fold her in to Fusion. Besides if that’s the argument, Liza, not Hayley was a part of Fusion, Liza was one of the initial investors.
