COUPLE: Greg Nelson & Jenny Gardner
SHOW: ALL MY CHILDREN
Greg: Laurence Lau
Jenny: Kim Delaney
Greg and Jenny met in 1981 when Jenny came to Pine Valley with her mother, Opal (Dorothy Lyman). They faced numerous obstacles on the slow road to love including class conflict instigated by Greg's snobby mother, Enid (Natalie Ross), interference caused by Greg's ex-girlfriend, Liza (Marcy Walker), revelations about Jenny's father, Ray (Gil Rogers), and Greg's paralysis. In 1984 they were finally married but Jenny was killed in a jet ski explosion soon after.
Greg and Jenny were a huge hit with ALL MY CHILDREN fans including young viewers who would rush home at lunchtime to watch the star-crossed lovers. The couple covered numerous soap magazines as well as national publications like TV Guide. Probably the biggest testament to the couple's memory and impact is the fact that Lau & Delaney continue to be asked about these roles to this day including a reunion on THE VIEW in 2011.
Delaney was named Most Exciting New Actress by the 1983 Soapy Awards. She has gone on to great success
