Luke's 10 Ways to Fix All My Children
No. 1: If Alicia Minshew won't return permanently, recast Kendall ASAP
Alicia Minshew is returning as Kendall for a short stint, but if it can't be worked out for her to return permanently, the role of Kendall Hart needs to be recast, as Daytime Confidential's own Jamey Giddens has suggested.
Kendall's connection to Erica, her frenemy relationship with Grenlee and being the mother of 50 percent of the soap's next generation requires the character to be in Pine Valley on a permanent basis. A casting call for Kendall Hart would no doubt have some of the best former daytime actresses— and quite a few primetime actresses—intrigued. It's not like it would be the first time Kendall was recast. Sarah Michelle Gellar was the originally love-to-hate daughter-from-the-pit-of hell. If Minshew cold win fans over following a dynamo like Gellar, I am sure there is an actress out there who could do it again. Maybe AMC can ask Mark Teschner for some suggestions?
