HomeTVAll My ChildrenOMFG! Sarah Michelle Gellar Returns to All My Children! Luke Kerr August 4, 2011 All My Children, Comings & Goings 44 Comments HOT DAMN! All My Children is on a roll with its guest star returns. On the day that Josh Duhamel returns as Leo du Pres, Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Sarah Michelle Gellar is returning to Pine Valley before AMC ends its ABC run. "I have no idea what I'm doing or who I'm playing," she says. "I told them I don't want to be Kendall; that's Alicia's [Minshew] role now. She has made that beyond her own. She's amazing. I just wanted to be a part of it. I said I would be a patron in a bar, I don't care. I can come down from the attic with Bobby Martin; I can be his ski bunny wife." How would you like to see Sarah Michelle Gellar’s return incorporated into All My Children? Photo by PR Photos 44 Responses Dyllan August 4, 2011 I wish she was playing Kendall. IMO, the character went downhill after she left. Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 August 4, 2011 Will wonders never cease? Just got through squealing like a middle school ‘tween seeing Leo! Just open the floodgates a little bit more!… 0:) Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 4, 2011 As long as she gets scenes with Susan Lucci, Alicia Minshew and Rebecca Budig, I don’t care how they bring her back. I hope she and Susan have mended fences since the 90s. I am glad to see that Alicia Minshew won’t be getting the Trevor St. John treatment. Sarah is right, ALICIA is Kendall now. I always knew that Sarah had too much class to try to come back and take another actresses job. Log in to Reply KeriChandler26 August 4, 2011 Love her mentioning Bobby Martin–SMG is true! I’m so excited for this! And I agree that she better be sharing scenes with AM, RB and SL. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon August 4, 2011 I’m hyperventilating!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, she’s not going to play Kendall….Nothing to see here folks. Log in to Reply jlafferty23 August 4, 2011 Love it! If only OLTL would have had the respect to do the same with Trevor. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 4, 2011 Jlafferty– THANK YOU! Whatever happened to “Finders keepers, losers weepers!”??? Log in to Reply keanna August 4, 2011 Cool, hmmmm I wonder what she’ll be playing? I am glad she Alicia props, that would be funny if she steps out of the attic with Bobby Martin. Log in to Reply soapfan616 August 4, 2011 A very classy quote. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 4, 2011 Soapfan616— Classy? Maybe not….. Appropriate? Yes. Log in to Reply rebecca August 4, 2011 I want her to come back as Buffy so she can put a stake through David to finally REALLY kill him for good!LOL! Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 4, 2011 Kendall. She needs to return to the role that got her famous in the first place. That’s who she needs to be. Because i’m not sorry to say it but Alicia is just alright in the role, but she does not have that spunk that got Sarah the Emmy’s. Log in to Reply curacaoman August 4, 2011 She could be Erica unaborted daughter, or Kendall’s fraternal twin! Log in to Reply appleridge August 4, 2011 This is Sarah’s choice. She wants to pay tribute to the show that got her started but at the same time she respects That Kendall is Alicia’s Role. Cant wait to see How AMC uses her. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott August 4, 2011 How truly divine!! Next up…..Kim Delaney please!! Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 August 4, 2011 Why are the people writing these articles acting like this is the most shocking news in the history of soaps? OMFG! We all know she will be on 1 or 2 episodes tops like Leo. This is just a thank you return for jump starting her career like most of the other returnees that we won’t see very long. I love SMG but this won’t be any great story. Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 August 4, 2011 alstonboy if SMG wanted this job and the Kendall role back full time then Alicia would definitely get the TSJ treatment. SMG is 5 times the actor that Alicia is. SMG scenes were always great. Kendall scenes are mostly snoozefest crap with Zach and Ryan.

Next up…..Kim Delaney please!![/quote] Kim said she wants to but doesnt think Army Wives will allow it maybe Scheduling issues Log in to Reply Nat Guy August 4, 2011 I’ll tune back into AMC to see this. It would be funny if she had a scene with Alicia and they both did a double take. Like a “do I know you” moment. Love the Bobby Martin in the attic mention. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 4, 2011 Y2Jin99– I respect your opinion, but I like Alicia Minshew as Kendall. I enjoyed Sarah back when Kendall was a hell on wheels teenager, but I feel the character has evolved over the years, and Alicia has captured that evolution greatly. Log in to Reply GHfan-4now August 4, 2011 Buffy! Even if she’s on an episode or two, she could still, like, kill Ryan, right??? I’m PRETTY sure he’s a soulless vamp in disguise. Heaven knows he’s sucked the life out of just about every woman in his life; they all deserve better… Lucky her, spared from his firecrotch. Can’t wait to see her, hope she has scenes with Alicia… Log in to Reply Ceridwyn2 August 4, 2011 Will be interesting to see and SMG is a huge AMC fan. Alicia has made the role of Kendall her own, and I’d love to see how it gets written in. Log in to Reply sunbeam August 4, 2011 I will watch that. Log in to Reply luverica August 4, 2011 I have amazing respect for Sarah Michelle Geller being very clear that Kendall is Alicia Minshew’s character now. As much as I loved Sarah’s Kendall, I distinctly remember liking Alicia since her first day onscreen. To each their own but I find some of the anti-Alicia comments to be quite unfortunate. I truly don’t believe she deserves that. Log in to Reply GHdoolFan August 4, 2011 . Log in to Reply trhnlhi August 4, 2011 I would love to see her come back as Kendall’s evil twin sister LOL Log in to Reply petitejolie August 4, 2011 She was the reason I started watching AMC Log in to Reply Jenny August 4, 2011 OMG! I can’t breathe. Log in to Reply mipeony August 4, 2011 I loved SMG as Kendall, especially when she was with Anton. I loved AMC back then, Kendall and Anton, Noah and Julia, Haley and Matteo… Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 August 4, 2011 David46208– You and I have disagreed before, and will undoubtedly do so again. But that’s what makes things interesting, right? Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 4, 2011 @alstonboy4315: We gonna have to disagree on this one. Sarah is to Kendell what Roger is to Todd. There are ticks and special personality traits the character of Kendall should always have, just like Susan does as Erica. Alicia just doesn’t do it for me. She doesn’t spell KENDALL the way Sarah does. She’s just Kendall. The magic is not there with Alicia. She’s just holding up in the role. Sarah has that AMC soap actress quality that let you know it was the ‘children. Alicia doesn’t possess that special trait that makes an actress in daytime go kaboom! She doesn’t have that YOU WILL REMEMBER ME quality to her. That’s why I like Sarah. And that is what Sarah possesses. Sarah makes you stand up and pay attention. Alicia is just one of the bunch. She’s not bad… but if you had your choice between powerhouse and just “she works in the role.” Which will you choose? Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model August 4, 2011 @alstonboy4315: Right! I wonder how they are going to do this…It will be interesting. You just can’t bring her back to play any role. So what will they do with her?

I am so disgusted with what they are doing at OLTL with Trevor St.John that when he leaves, I will not be watching it anymore. I refuse. They are insulting my intelligence with that crap. Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 August 4, 2011 good riddance to jlafferty. I won’t watch because they got rid of my boyfriend. Waaaaaaaaaa Maybe the actor wanted too much money and they couldn’t reach a contract decision? Did Drake Hogestyn throw a fat when they said sorry but you are not really Roman Brady? or did they just run with it and let him make John Black his own? Log in to Reply angrierblackerman August 4, 2011 I look at Kendall the same way I look at Bianca. SMG = Young Kendall AM = Mature “mom” Kendall ER = Young “Binks” CBL = Mature Bianca Log in to Reply jlafferty23 August 5, 2011 Y2Jin99 HAHAHA, Who in the hell do you think you are talking to me like that? Get a life. Log in to Reply TV Gord August 5, 2011 I am thrilled that SMG is returning, and one thing I REALLY hope they do is have her meet Kendall and family, and make some remark about Kendall having a son…named SPIKE! Log in to Reply mafelix86 August 5, 2011 AAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I feel like a giddy schoolgirl right now. I had been hoping that this would happen for awhile now, ever since DC posted an article about SMG talking about the cancellation of AMC and her opennness to returning. I just can’t believe it’s finally gonna happen. I can’t wait to see Sarah back on AMC!!!!!!! Log in to Reply DenverDean August 5, 2011 Two things: 1) SMG trying to promote her CW show “Ringer” 2) With all these stars returning – even after PP announcement – doesn’t it show the importance of the network TV run (or ending)?

Log in to Reply naughtytomato August 5, 2011 That sounds like fun. I think it’s great she is willing to make an appearance to pay tribute to the show. Log in to Reply LaLa August 27, 2011 Just a thought~~While I loved Alexa Havens as “Babe”, not sure if there was any talk about her coming back. “Babe” has been thrown out there a bit lately. I tend to live under a rock at times. What if Alexa has no plans to come back as “Babe”. I’m thinkin~~ Sarah would be an interesting alternative. Alicia did her job and filled in as “Kendall”. At first, she Aced it. The charactor became really sappy & whiney and I was sick of her for a while. Sarah paved the way and will always be THE favorite for tht role. Now if your feelin froggy, don’t jump all over me. It’s just an opinion. Log in to Reply TV Gord August 28, 2011 Alexa IS coming back as Babe. I think they have something clever in mind regarding Sarah, but if circumstances allowed it, your idea is pretty good, too, LaLa.
