All My Children Writer Previews 2009

by at . Comments

For those seeking a series of All My Children spoilers, who better to speak to than head writer Charles Pratt Jr.?

The scribe recently sat down with Soap Opera Weekly and delivered the dish on a few key characters. For example, here's a look ahead at Ryan Lavery in the new year...

Ryan has floated around between women. Sometimes he's a good guy; sometimes he's a little dark. In other words, sometimes he's this, sometimes he's that. My feeling is to get him back to the way he was when I liked him and to the way I think the actor [Cameron Mathison] liked him.

Cute Cameron

Ryan is best a bit roguish, with a little cynicism and a dash of humor — but ultimately a good guy, a white knight. At the same time, [he's] a guy who fights for his cause. I always saw him as an ambitious person, romantically and otherwise. I don't like him bearing his feelings or vacillating between women, or doing the right thing for the wrong reasons or the wrong thing for the right reasons.

I see him more as a simpler man with a direct purpose and clear goals, who goes about [reaching] them, never in devious, terrible, crazy ways, but gets his results in any way possible. He spent a little too much time wearing his heart on his sleeve, and now it's time to be more of a man of action.

It is a mistake to get rid of Greenlee's character. The original Greenlee just ads so much more to the show, and the dynamic between Ryan, Erica,and Kendall. Think of a new plan but don't kill her off permanently please! I started watching again because you brought some of the old characters back!

All My Children Quotes

[to Myrtle about Erica] Somebody give me a stick so I can beat the stupid out of her.

Opal

Maggie Stone: I wonder if it's the number of nights that really matter. I mean, love, it's more than just the physical part. It's whether or not you connect. You can't plan who you fall in love with.
Jamie Martin: Well, how do you even know if it's real? I mean, so many people fall in love and go through the motions, but it's not even close.
Maggie Stone: Maybe some people don't even get to have it.
Jamie Martin: Or they don't recognize it when it comes along.
Maggie Stone: Or when you do finally get it so deep it's a part of you, only to have it taken away. You know, when I - when we couldn't find Bianca, I experienced an emptiness I've never felt before, I mean, like what it would be like if Bianca had never surfaced again. I had to put that out of my mind. I had to forget it.
Jamie Martin: It's complicated - love. It's so unique every time, with every person. And when the real thing comes along, I guess we just have to hope we see it.
Maggie Stone: Or hold onto it.
