Susan Lucci On AMC Status: "I So Hope I Can Return"By SOD Posted: Feb 25, 2013
On ABC's THE VIEW on February 25, Susan Lucci addressed the possibility of joining Prospect Park's ALL MY CHILDREN reboot to reprise the iconic role of Erica Kane. "I so hope that I can return," she said. "I want with all my heart to return to ALL MY CHILDREN. I just don't know the answer yet but what I do know is that all of us all of us are working so hard to make that happen. I really want to. My heart is certainly with [AMC Creator] Agnes Nixon and it's going to be wonderful. I want you all to watch because it's going to be great." The actress said that it took her a while to recover from the show's 2011 cancellation. "It was emotional and it took me by surprise. It was a mourning process. It would be similar to losing someone you love. I lost a family, the ALL MY CHILDREN family and the wonderful part of Erica Kane." Since then, she noted, "I have had wonderful opportunities to work…. I am so lucky to be part of the cast of Marc Cherry's new show," DEVIOUS MAIDS, which will debut later this year. "We are shooting in Atlanta. That's premiering on Lifetime soon. The scripts are incredible. Marc Cherry is a brilliant, genius writer."
