HomeTVAll My ChildrenIs AMC Recasting Amanda Dillon? Luke Kerr December 7, 2009 22 Comments Just when things were beginning to look up a little bit at All My Children comes this news. ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting AMC is "in the process of recasting the role of Amanda." Apparently the show didn’t want to wait for Chishell Stause, who is on recurring, to land another job before recasting the role. 22 Responses keanna December 7, 2009 That’s too bad because I really like Chishell in the role. We will see. Any suggestions? I like Heidi Mueller (ex-Kay) from Passions. Log in to Reply discodan December 7, 2009 What’s Adrienne Leon up to? Log in to Reply syworld82 December 7, 2009 that’s too bad she made AMC watchable for so long however in real. I was expectin this Log in to Reply snizzle December 7, 2009 It’s too bad because CS is one of the few bright spots on AMC. AMC has been so bad I don’t blame her for not signing another contract. I understand AMC needs a long term commitment before they can invest more into the character. Log in to Reply angrierblackerman December 7, 2009 Sucks, cause I really like Stause, but if the show has to. I would want to see Heidi Muller (Ex-Kay from Passions). I wanted Heidi to be Kendall, but I would accept her as Amanda. There is an unknown actress who is a DEAD RINGER for Crishell. If you go to YOUTUBE and search "GOING BALD LIKE A MAN" you will see her. She is at around the 1:27 mark. She is almost a TWIN of Crishell Stause. I know looks don’t really matter and talent does, but sometimes I can forgive a recast if they are similar to the original actor. Log in to Reply gush900 December 7, 2009 I think heidi would kill in that role.Hopefully the casting director judy blye wilson dosent muck it up Log in to Reply RCLGuard December 7, 2009 I was totally thinking Heidi Mueller (ex-Kay, Passions) too. I want to see her on my screen again. I loved her. Log in to Reply east.west December 7, 2009 Jamey get on that Wishful Casting lol. She can fit GH and Days pretty well. Or she can save yall from the "horror" of Big Clem on Y&R. Log in to Reply goyankees December 7, 2009 What was looking up for AMC?? The move? The Move doesn’t change crappy writing and acting…. C.S. was ONE OF THE BRIGHT spots on this canvas… I would love to see her on Y&R (as anything. Just find her a spot!!) That’s how much I like her as an actress….. She’s far better off w/out Pine Valley dragging her down. Imo. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 December 7, 2009 I going to miss CS, but I don’t blame her for leaving. Pratt put a terrible taste in our mouths with this horrible writing. I hope that the recast is good, but I don’t think that Judy will pick talent. Log in to Reply VeryCleanIndeed December 7, 2009 Not surprising at all. There’s too much story going on with Amanda for CS to stay on recurring. Heidi Mueller would be great, I think. They’ll probabl go with an unknown, though. goyankees, the firing of upChuck Pratt is the bright spot. Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 December 7, 2009 How about Erin Hershey I know she’s blonde but I can overlook certain things as long as the acting is good. Log in to Reply Clarissa December 7, 2009 We’ll miss you Chrishell, but I won’t miss her version of Amanda w/ Jake, she should have been w/ JR from the get go. Log in to Reply mrsa1107 December 7, 2009 Katiebug– I am with you! I think Erin Hershey would be a great recast for a few reasons: 1. WIth Amanda’s current storyline and her family history with the show- Amanda Dillion should be a leading younger lady for this show— and EH was that for Port Charles. 2. The nicest thing I felt about CS in the role of AManda was there was this glow about her– CS played the role in a way– that even when Amandea did sothing stupid or wrong– you kind of felt she was still a good person who made a bad choice. Not every actress can pull that off!! I felt that way about AH as Babe– but did not see that with her recast!!!!! I am confident EH could continue that in the role of Amanda. 3. There has been some talk that AMC put out a casting call for an actress in her younger 20′s for this role?????? HELLO??????????????? A 21 or 23 year old with JAKE OR DAVID?????????? NASTY!! They need an actress in her early 30′s atleast if she is going to be linked in any type of romantic situation with Jake and David. 4. I think EH & RPG will have chem. as Jake & Amanda EAST WEST– I hope Jamey puts out a wishful casting on this role too!!! I am looking forward to seeing who he thinks would be a good fit! **** I must admit though I have NO faith in the casting dept over at AMC. They have been sooooooooooooooooo off the mark with their recasts when it comes to filling female roles! In my opinion Liza and babe were sooo off the mark!!!!!!!!!!! Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin December 7, 2009 Hmmm EHP?? Thats interesting. But if they are going to do that, I would hope that they would be smart enough to bring back brian gaskill as Bobby Nelson. Loved those two together on PC. Log in to Reply syworld82 December 8, 2009 honestly I would love 2 see adrienne leon from the age range and looks and her acting style I could clearly see her stepping right in the role Log in to Reply Chels725 December 8, 2009 dang this sucks. she was the only bright spot on the show besides the firing of chuck. i don’t blame CS though. she would be a better mac on Y&R though. Jamey needs to bust out his wishful casting. Log in to Reply terrifictam December 8, 2009 I echo the sentiments of those who said she was a bright spot on the show. I used to loveee AMC and Chrishell was a huge reason for that. I loved her acting and how she played Amanda. I’m also in her fanclub and treats her fans like gold. I wish her all the best and know she’ll land something soon. She’s definitely got a bright future ahead of her. Log in to Reply Dariclone December 8, 2009 Ouch! That’s *really* rude to Chrishell! Nothing like not giving her a chance. I was hoping that Chrishell might stick around with Lorraine Broadrick in as headwriter. I hope they don’t recast her with some newbie who can’t act. Log in to Reply binksfan999 December 8, 2009 I liked Chrishell and will miss her. As for a recast, no!! Let the story line end, and let RPG move on to something esle. Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 December 9, 2009 Chrishell just tweeted these messages: Hey guys to address the rumors-I just got word that I WILL be recurring with AMC while in LA. I want to branch out and do some other things and it looks like we will be able to work together on scheduling. Great news for everyone! (to someone on twitter): Thanks!! I won’t have to give any teary goodbyes on Friday-yay!! (to someone else on twitter): Thanks!!! Very excited it worked out!!!! Looks like she’s staying Log in to Reply Dariclone December 9, 2009 Yay! I’m glad she’s staying, at least on a temporary basis! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
