Since All My Children's cancellation earlier this year, that soap's most famous star, Susan Lucci, has been meeting with Hollywood producers and considering her next move. This week, though, it looks like she has another option: to stay right where she is.
The last episode of All My Children will air on September 23rd, but, now that ABC has licensed the show to continue online (via the production company, Prospect Park), Lucci might not necessarily have to vacate her role as Erica Kane. According to Deadline, she is weighing an offer to stay in Pine Valley!
Scheduled to premier online during the first quarter of next year, the reincarnation of AMC will have a smaller overall budget, which will mean pay cuts for many of the actors who cross over to the web. But, word on the street is that Lucci's salary would remain about the same. (How's that for star power?)
Despite what may sound like a sweet deal, it's possible that Lucci might choose to leave the series that's paid her salary since 1970. Asked about a rumored spot on Desperate Housewives, Lucci acknowledged to Access Hollywood that "there's a lot of talking going on."
And why not strike out for Wisteria Lane and beyond? Pine Valley can't keep her forever.
