Rebecca Budig Opens Up About Her ALL MY CHILDREN Future: 'In My Head, I Have Moved On'
"The truth is that in my head, I have moved on — and I think most of [the cast] had wrapped our heads around this. I’m a believer that change is good and that things happen for a reason, but I will never say never, because you never know. These [Prospect Park] guys are smart and I think they know what they’re doing. It’s super-ambitious and innovative and a new frontier — and I feel like ALL MY CHILDREN is the perfect choice to start an online network."

“We know it’s going to end sooner or later,” he said. “It’s just about ending well and the audience getting what they want out of it, and maybe there are some amends made with the characters, because they’re very flawed.”


  1. Good for Michael G. More soap actors should be building up their non-soap reels.

    I hope the rest of the soap world is busy auditioning and trying to get credits in film and primetime programming. Frankly, I never understood why the networks never used their soaps as a farm team for their primetime programming.

  2. Actually, GUIDING LIGHT would have been the perfect soap to move from TV to the internet, since it was the first soap to move from radio to TV. But, what do I know?

  3. Right on, Mark. If P&G would only sell or license the rights, Guiding Light could be back in business.
