Rebecca Budig on Leo And Greenlee: “In The End, I Wanted Them to go Off Together”


If you were one of the All My Children fans disappointed Leo (Josh Duhamel) and Greenlee (Rebecca Budig) didn’t ride off into the sunset together, you are not alone. In an interview with TV Guide, Budig reveals she too hoped the popular couple would end up together.

"In the end, I wanted them to go off together," Budig continued. "The audience doesn't know what's going to happen to them, we just see them going away." Instead, of course, Greenlee woke up to find Zach (Thorsten Kaye), still alive after going down in a plane crash several months ago.

"It was a little bizarre. I was thrilled to work with Josh again, but it was sort of a tease, too," she said.

    AHHHHH!!!!!! It’s always been clear to me that she knows Green’s better than that agenda driven FronsHole and she knows that Green’s soulmate is no one but Leo!!!! Soulmates, supercouple, love it. Love her… her acknowledgement of that made this GreenLeo fan extremely happy. :love: At least SHE knows what the fans wanted… And their chem was still off the charts amazing…

    LOL! Yes Swan, we can both definitely dream… Green’s belongs with Leo and Ryan belongs with Gillian… too bad we don’t write for AMC, because that’s certainly how it would be! :bigsmile:

    GHfan-4now-If I ever were to write scripts for a soap, one day in soap time would probably last a month! Nobody’s story would move forward…My love of words…Oy! Look at my posts ;)!

    This makes me really happy to hear Rebecca say this. Greenlee & Leo are soulmates. Ryan & Greenlee do NOT
    belong together.. I don’t think I have ever hated a couple more.

    I didn’t watch AMC during the Leo/Greenlee days but when I saw the episode a couple of weeks ago their chemistry was oozing off the television !
    I do not like the character of Ryan. He does absolutely nothing for me and I cannot stand the pairing of Ryan/Greenlee.

    In the end, I’m sure Josh Duhamel’s wife Fergie didn’t want him to cheat on her with that pole dancer.

    But that’s life. My husband cheated on me with a stripper, too. Only I kicked him to the curb, Stacy Ferguson should heed my advice and kick Duhamel out, too. Once a cheater, always a cheater. Gurl, I know that’s right.

    It was determined that Josh DIDN’T cheat on Fergie when that STANK stripper’s claims were never substantiated. She was only after 15 seconds of fame and perhaps some attention. Besides, who in the hell would leave a steak dinner to go gnaw on a bologna sandwich? Don’t believe everything you read, honey. ;)

    Hmm, I wonder if there’s more to come. :) 0:)

    Glad we all the same way about Rylee, Cameron does, too. In a way I am glad, AMC’s going to PP and maybe even cable, they will not have to worry, Fronsie’s agenda driven stuff anymore.

    I heard rumors that originally, Agnes and LB wrote Leo Alive and with he and Greenlee “riding off into the sunset”, but with the shows being saved in the PP deal, they had to change everything at the last minute.

    They couldn’t have Leo alive, because Josh Duhamel would likely not be staying on the show, and how would they explain his absence when the show went on? What sucks is that maybe Rebecca Budig is leaving the show too, so they totally could have had Greenlee and Leo leave together.

    When I heard Josh was coming back I thought for sure it was to pre-tape something for the last episode… It was great seeing Leo again but a dream? sigh. At the very least they should have taped a small scene where Greenlee sees him ALIVE in the last episode and makes it clear that they will end up together. Rebecca isn’t going to go to the online show so what is there to lose? Unless they’re going to recast Greenlee again.
