"I think in the beginning, the press thought it was a cougar storyline," Susan Lucci told reporters at the Winter TCA. "I didn't know what to expect. I don't think the audience believes in it as a long-term relationship, but I don't think the characters necessarily do either, but it's a genuine feeling for each other. So it is different from the expected."
Earlier in the day, Lucci said she believed that Greenlee is Ryan's great love.
"I think that's probably the case," Cameron Mathison agrees. "I think Erica and Ryan are extremely connected deeply in many ways, but as far as a true love for each other? I can't imagine that Erica would say the same about Ryan. I think Greenlee is Ryan's true love, yeah."
More from ALL MY CHILDREN at the Winter TCA Tour
Agnes Nixon on her role on the show: "I don’t think I have to give advice to the new writing team because the new writing team are still very seasoned writers. And my position now is — first of all, I still have a very good memory, so I’m sort of the historian. And I think my forté is the complexities of people and the stories they cause by their own good and bad traits, and so I’m a consultant. I think that’s my title."
