We haven't seen anything from these two girls in a while but Layla has finally booked something. Last month Layla was featured on the cover of Hudson Magazine. She also had a few pages inside. This months Issue also featured a photo of Layla.
Back last year in anticipation of the new Primtime season, new ABC shows participated in a press tour. This included Atticus Shaffer's show The Middle and Atticus was present. Two photos from the event are now in the gallery.
Lisa and I have been working on something lately. Back in September, I opened up, by myself, "Haley Source," a fansite for General Hospital actress, Haley Pullos. Due to hosting issues, I lost the site and it took me a few months to get motivated to recreate it. Thanks to Lisa for deciding to co-web with me, we have finally brought "Haley Source" back to the fans! This time, at a new link and a whole new design! Go check it out!
TV Guide Canada's 3rd Annual Soap Opera Spirit Awards are kicking off with the announcement of their nominee list and in the running we have two Star-Kidz! First off in the Outstanding Younger Actor category we see Carmen LoPorto nominated for his portrayal of Jack Manning and then in the Outstanding Female Actor in a New Role or Recast category we see Lexi Ainsworth nominated for her portrayal of Kristina Davis. Way to go!!
This is long overdue. But on behalf of Myself, Lisa, Susan and Toni we'd like to present the Video page. With much debate we settled on opening up youtube pages again, but this time each show has got their own page. If any problem persist please contact one of us and we will reupload or repair any page thats wrong. While we know youtube has probelms, it is the easiest way for everyone to view the videos. We hope with this system we will be able to maintain more videos and provide everyone with the ability to catch-up and re-watch their favorite shows. Remember to click on the sidebar linkie to head over to the video page and find the link's to our video pages.
Our new Little Adam airing soon, Tate, and his older brother Tanner have completed numerous jobs including print work for comapnies such as Garnet Hill, Ralph Lauren and Guess. We have a bunch of photos now in our gallery from these jobs and would like to thank Miss Mackenzie for helping us out!
This past Tuesday Lost returned for it's 6th and final season. With the new season begining we were surprised to have two children back. Mickey Graue (Zach) and Kiersten Havelock (Emma). Along with the screencaps here's also a photo of Kiersten on set and one of her at the big premiere party.
Rumors are circulating that young actress Emily Lind will be taking over the role of Emma Lavery and airing in mid to late February. Emily is not new to the soap world having shot an episode of Days of Our Lives as 'Older Grace' last year which unfortunately did not air.
Q&A is not to be duplicated elsewhere and claimed as their own. STAR-KIDZ EXCLUSIVES
Lucy Merriam began playing "Emma Lavery" around her fourth birthday and since then has grown up on our screens until this year when she wrapped up the role in January. Lucy has developed a long following of fans and today we have a Q&A with Miss Lucy about her work on All My Children, as well as her feature film Marley and Me
1. What has been Lucy's favourite scenes/storyline to film? Most recently Lucy loved doing the Halloween scenes. She said she loved the costumes and she has also enjoyed manipulating the adults during the Who Killed Stuart story. She got to work with an acting coach and enjoyed the whole process. Other than that, she loved all weddings and scenes involving big poofy dresses. She also enjoys kidnappings--they (the kidnappers) always serve pancakes and bacon.
2.How did Lucy and Joe enjoy fan weekend? Lucy enjoys signing autographs--she just learned cursive. Joe is equally tickled to sign his name. Lucy used to be afraid of fans when she was really little, now she says she will miss the fans the most
3.What was the biggest difference between filming AMC and filming Marley & Me? In Marley Lucy says you had to do the scenes a lot more times. Also Lucy didn't know everybody like she does on All My Children.
4.What about the movie, Marley & Me, did Lucy enjoy the most? The snow scene was the fun part because everybody was really playing in the "snow". She got to go sledding in May and play with the dog and the boys. It took all day to do that one scene.
5.How did Lucy enjoy getting to work with J.R. Martinez? (P.S. he had some really nice things to say about you when we talked to him!) Lucy says he was very patient with her and is a good doctor for real.Joe is impressed that he is a real soldier.
6.Does lucy get to play with the younger cast members backstage? Lucy loves the Spikes and Alexa. She also enjoys playing with Cameron's son and daughter. The Little A's are also fun to play with. She enjoys seeing the babies, too. Sometimes, it is a real circus in the dressing room hallway when all the kids are in.
7.How did lucy enjoy sleeping through her hospital scenes? The hospital scenes were taped after the first day of school and Lucy was exhausted. Lucy says she likes napping on the job.
8. Who are some of Lucy's favorite people to spend time with backstage? Lucy is devoted to her nurse Sister Noreen and also the back-up nurses Jada and Kathy. She enjoys playing Uno and her homework behind the scenes. She also loves trying things on in wardrobe and getting Lisa to do her hair.
9. Is there anyone Lucy wishes she got the chance to work with more often? Lucy works with Cameron the most and when I asked her who she wants to work with more, she said Cameron. She adores him. Once Lucy was balking at eating her breakfast and I asked her TV dad to administer some discipline. Poor Cameron did not want to lower the boom on Lucy and demand she eat! Lucy also would have liked to do more scenes with Alexa.
10. Does Lucy watch her scenes on TV? Lucy loves to watch AMC when she is on. She worried that her grandma won't get to see her so much now that she is no longer on the show.
Aaron Refvem's talent doesnt just stay at acting, but expands into other areas including music. The other day Aaron uploaded a video to myspace of himself playing the piano and singing the hit song Apologize.
Where to start...we do not even know. Today marked the start of the HD broadcast of All My Children from their new LA studio. While this is an exciting chapter in the All My Children history, it is also a sad chapter here as we realize that this means we will no longer watch and see Lucy interacting with Ryan and the Chandlers as Emma, Alexa playing with Rachael and Jessica as Kathy and Jenny within the chaos of the Martin household. Nor will we see Rory and Declan play a little boy noticing something is different about his dad and wanting reassurance that everything will be okay. Alex Ben Caleb Luc and Cole will no longer come running through the Slater household as Spike and Ian while David Damian Aidan and Connor will no longer capture us with the smiles of Trevor and Stuart. As well, we will no longer await the day that Haley Alivia and Anthony return as Miranda and Gabrielle on one of Eden Riegel's returns as Bianca. While this door closes, we would like to thank all of our wonderful kids who have played these roles and say job well done. We would also like to say a thank-you to all of the kids who played these roles over the years whether it be for a few days or a few years. You all have done fantastic and that is why at Star-Kidz we have two brand new layouts, celebrating our kid cast that just wrapped up All My Children. (We would like to thank the McTigue, Gerasimovich, and Sharpe families for your photo donations to the layout, as well as the amazing Marie for making the layouts for the site). COTM is also up for February and to honor our east coast kids of AMC we could not pick just one and you will see that many of our kids from the years are COTM. We now look forward to the future and wish all of you good luck and we cannot wait to see what the future brings!!
As we speak of the future and LA, we now await the news of who our LA AMC kid cast will be. We anxiously are waiting to see Tate debut as Lil A/ AJ and wonder who else will be joining the Star-Kidz family in the coming weeks. To all of our new members of the family, welcome to Star-Kidz!!
So we have gotten a little emotional here and written pretty much a novel, but how could we not with the years and the time spent watching these bright and talented children grow before our very eyes. As this update comes to a close, we would like to say to keep checking back the next couple of days for some exciting AMC related updates and we hope everyone enjoys the fresh new look to the site.
Many have been wondering who would be filling the roles of our AMC child characters now that the show is in LA. Well today we bring you the first piece of casting news courtesy of IMDB. Young actor Tate will be playing Little Adam in the coming weeks...or "AJ" as he is now being called. We would like to welcome Tate to the Star-Kidz family!
Taylor Spreitler shows off her pearly whites as she attends the premiere of When In Rome premiere held at El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (January 27).
The 17-year-old Days of our Lives star looked great in a Development by Erica Davies dress, Steve Madden heels and Juicy Couture jewelry.
When In Rome stars Kristen Bell as Beth, a young, ambitious New Yorker who is completely unlucky in love. However, on a whirlwind trip to Rome, she impulsively steals some coins from a reputed fountain of love, and is then aggressively pursued by a band of suitors.
