If you were an ALL MY CHILDREN fan, you’ll want to clear your calendar for Sunday, Aug. 1, because a virtual Pine Valley reunion is taking place that day! The special occasion is being organized by Coastal Entertainment, an event planning company that has put together many fan events featuring daytime favorites over the years.
“So this is happening! We are doing one huge reunion on Zoom [on] August 1!” Coastal Entertainment announced on Instagram, sharing a photo of the AMC cast members scheduled to attend: Eva La Rue (Maria), Cameron Mathison (Ryan), Vincent Irizarry (David), Darnell Williams (Jesse), Walt Willey (Jackson), Jacob Young (JR), Melissa Claire Egan (Annie; currently THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Chelsea), Alicia Minshew (Kendall), Rebecca Budig (Greenlee), Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin; now Y&R’s Rey), Aiden Turner (Aidan), and Laurence Lau (Greg). “More actors to be named!”
Of course, once the slate of talent was announced for the reunion, fans were quick to ask about the actors not listed on the roster. “What about Michael Knight!!?” wondered one fan, to which Coastal replied that they were checking his schedule. “What about Susan Lucci! You can’t do a reunion without the main character!” asked another. “Working on it!” reassured the event coordinator.
The much-anticipated fan gathering will also serve as a tribute of sorts to John Callahan (Edmund), who unexpectedly passed away last year. All proceeds from the Zoom event will be donated in his name to Contractors for Kids (which financially assists families impacted by a sick or injured child) and the Tunnel to Towers Foundation (which assists the families of veterans and first responders).
Tickets for the 75-minute reunion are on sale now, and there are three tiers of participation for ticket holders, ranging from general admission to a “super” ticket that includes an intimate post-reunion Zoom with some of the actors.
