Daytime's 10 Most Insane Recasts!
No. 7 Jamie Luner for Marcy Walker as Liza on All My Children
Poor Jamie Luner. The red-headed Savannah and Melrose Place sex pot didn't know what she was in for when she accepted pal Chuck Pratt's offer to take on the role of Liza Colby, a character made popular on All My Children by one of daytime's most beloved blondes, Marcy Walker. Fans were enraged that TIIC assumed we would accept Luner in the role, or believe for one second she had gone to high school with Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie (Debbi Morgan). Couple that with the decision to have the once icy snob screwing Zach Slater (Thorsten Kaye) on a blackjack table on her very first episode, and this recast was the perfect recipe for disaster. Results: Turbo Failure.
