Vincent Irizarry dished on how he feels about the possibility of a David Hayward, the iconic All My Children villain he played, redux now that he’s done at Days of Our Lives.
Affection and Reflection
“I love that character, and if the opportunity rose, I’d certainly consider it,” Irizarry told Soap Hub.
The opportunity very well may rise in two different contexts. Now that ABC has the rights to All My Children and One Life to Live back, we at Soap Cities know they will do the right thing and resurrect those shows.
In the meantime, General Hospital is in talks on how to bring AMC and OLTL characters back to life on that ABC sudser. And as GH and OLTL fans know, Nora Buchanan (Hillary B. Smith) recently made a highly anticipated and praised Port Charles appearance to defend Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) in his custody battle with Lulu (Emme Rylan).
Back in the days when there was more than one ABC soap and they relished character crossovers, Anna (Finola Hughes) went from GH to AMC for a time. She and David had a daughter who died.
“I love working with Finola, as well,” Irizarry said. “We had a great working relationship together. The characters just worked,” Irizarry said. He added that the many people he’s worked with behind the camera over at GH would also make appearing on that soap a welcome experience.
So keep your fingers crossed AMC fans. And as always, it never hurts to let The Powers That Be at the networks and shows know how you feel.
