It was easy to get hooked on the engaging soap opera All My Children and its cast by extension. Often shortened to AMC, the soap produced Erica Kane who is today regarded as one of the most popular characters on television. Susan Lucci is responsible for bringing Kane to life. Today, she can be seen as a special guest on some TV spots.

Born on December 23, 1946, Lucci is best known for being part of the All My Children cast. But she’s worked on a lot of other projects and has even more titles to her name besides that of Erica Kane. After all was said and done, she became an actress, television host, author and entrepreneur. The latter has her managing her main passion project is her hair and skin care product line, the Susan Lucci Collection. Lucci is also a fierce advocate for women’s health issues. She even worked with the American Heart Association and hosted her own event.

Kelly Ripa portrayed Hayley Vaughan as part of the All My Children cast. Ripa maintained the role from November 22, 1990 to December 18, 2002. Then, she briefly reprised it for the show’s 40th anniversary. But since then, Ripa has kept herself busy on the television. Everyone now knows the famous duo of Regis and Kelly today because of their easy, natural chemistry. From 2002 to 2011, the duo hosted the Live! talk show. When Regis retired, Ripa took over and the show became Live! with Kelly.

Along the way, Kelly Ripa found love – thanks to her time with the All My Children cast. Ripa fell madly in love with Mark Consuelos, who played Mateo Santos. Their elopement was largely unknown to a lot of people, but the former colleagues are very openly infatuated with one another today. They’re also very caring parents of their three children, which we see thanks to college stories. Most of their time ended up in SoHo, Manhattan but soon made an expensive leap to a $27 million townhouse on East 76th Street. Across the border, Ripa earned herself induction into the New Jersey Hall of Fame. But back home, stuck in quarantine, Ripa has gotten creative – all in the name of Live! – by raiding daughter Lola’s wardrobe.

Actors like Cameron Mathison had a real knack for this line of work

Cameron Mathison’s own sizzling presence helped propel his career to continued success as well. Fans fell in love with him as Ryan Lavery. Then, viewers fell in love with him all over again when he competed in Dancing with the Stars in 2007. Using his experience as part of the All My Children cast, Mathison later went on to Hallmark movies. With the network, he starred on titles like Murder She Baked.

When not acting, his charisma shone through when he covered award events for Good Morning America. The hosting opportunities kept on coming for Mathison as everyone fell for his easy charisma and charming looks. He joined Home and Family as a co-host alongside Debbie Matenopoulos on July 26, 2018. This new position coincided with the series’ seventh season.
