Daytime Confidential's good pal Nelson Branco from TV Guide Canada just called to inform me he ran into several members of the cast of All My Children, who are apparently in L.A. to film location scenes for the upcoming kidnapping climax following the wedding of Jesse and Angie (Darnell Williams and Debbi Morgan) airing May 21 and 22.
Branco is in L.A. for the GLAAD Awards, held yesterday, and has promised us tons of juicy daytime and primetime dish from the event, so keep checking back! Branco spotted such stars as Ricky Paull Goldin (Jake), Michael E. Knight (Tad), Cornelius Smith Jr. (Frankie), David Rasche (Ray Gardner) as well as Williams and Morgan. Several of the actors are eating in the same hotel restaurent where Nelson is having brunch as I type this!
As previously reported, Angie Hubbard will be abducted following her much anticipated wedding to Jesse and dramatically carried away from her true love via helicopter! Nelson is theorizing that Rob Gardner, the sociopath brother of AMC's late villain Ray Gardner, is the one who will kidnap the heroine.
It seems like AMC is pulling out all the stops to lure back lapsed viewers and I couldn't be happier. A big, splashy, soap wedding with a big name R&B singer (Ne-Yo), followed by a dramatic kidnapping that actually takes the cast on location? How awesome is that? If I closed my eyes it would be 1985!
