Our pals at Zap2it recently caught up with veteran, soap favorite Vincent Irizarry. The actor chatted with the website about the genre’s impact on television and All My Children’s cancellation and rebirth.
Zap2it: What's your recollection of the time when ABC canceled "All My Children" and its Online Network mate "One Life to Live"?
Vincent Irizarry: I don't know why it happened the way it did. From all appearances, it seems like it was terribly mishandled. Being there at the epicenter while it was happening, it was confounding to all of us. We were like, "What is going on?" It was really disheartening to see ["All My Children"] come to that end, and it just seemed so unnecessary. It never should have happened.
So all of us on the show are grateful, and the audience is just overwhelmingly excited that this has happened. This is due in great part to them, because of the fact that they were so vigilant; they were such staunch loyalists of the show.
