July 18, 2011 by J!-ENT
Beloved actors David Canary (Adam Chandler), Julia Barr (Brooke English), Ray MacDonnell (Dr. Joe Martin) and Lee Meriwether (Ruth Martin) will reprise their roles on ABC’s daytime drama “All My Children” this September.
Canary debuted on “All My Children” in 1983 as Adam Chandler, one of the most devious and wealthy characters in Pine Valley. Soon after, he took on a dual role as Adam’s twin brother, Stuart. Barr’s character, Brooke English, arrived in Pine Valley in 1976 as the rich, spoiled niece of Phoebe Tyler, played by Ruth Warrick. She quickly made enemies with Erica Kane, played by Susan Lucci, as the two women often shared love interests. Adam Chandler and Brooke English left Pine Valley for Paris in 2010, but promised to return one day.
MacDonnell has played Dr. Joe Martin since the debut of “All My Children” in 1970. His character was known as the patriarch of Pine Valley. Beginning in 1996, Meriwether stepped into the matriarchal role as his wife, Ruth Martin. They were last seen attending Tad and Cara’s wedding earlier this year.
“All My Children” has been hallmarked for its iconic brand of humor and satire and has been prized with more than 30 Daytime Emmy Awards over the past four decades, including the three-time top honor of Outstanding Drama Series. Praised for its socially conscious foundation, the show has been at the forefront of such issues as AIDS, rape, abortion, alcoholism, spousal abuse and racial bias, among others.
Created by Agnes Nixon, “All My Children” premiered on the ABC Television Network on January 5, 1970, as a half-hour show; seven years later it expanded to an hour. Julie Hanan Carruthers is executive producer with Lorraine Broderick as head writer. “All My Children” is produced in Los Angeles and airs MONDAY-FRIDAY (1:00-2:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
