Our ode to All My Children's Zach Slater.

Regardless of some of the most poorly conceived story lines, Mr. Kaye's portrayal of Zach showed more depth of the character despite what was written. How often is an actor able to transcend the script?
But yet again, characters are being given outrageous things to do in the name of an efficient exit just to make it easy. Considering Zach was the one who came up with Kendal's "double" substitution in jail, he suddenly has another case of PVA...PINE VALLEY AMNESIA or the latest contagious disease overtaking the Swine Flu.
AMC needs to do some serious damage control, bite the bullet and see about keeping Mr. Kaye, Jackson, Dixie, Opal, Bianca, Krystal, Aiden and perhaps some other veterans. Wouldn't the increase in viewership more than compensate for their salaries? Lose Madison, her father, the new Colby, Marissa.
It isn't rocket science folks! Viewers have been screaming for what they want and I too would gladly throw my hat into the ring should they need a story consultant. ABC Daytime execs and other decision makers remind me of Noah's neighbors as they derided him for building the ark as rain clouds amassed. Could the needed direction and casting be any clearer?
Kaye's portrayal of Zach grieving the loss of Myrtle and the reading of the poem tapped into the loss of my mother years ago. Isn't that what actors are supposed to do? Reflect back to themselves and the audience believable emotions?
Why is ABC BOMBING ?! Every show has let me down for months. The worst part? ABC/7/Disney seems not to care what we, the viewers, want to see. This is sad.
Erika and Jackson, best ever! OH, where is Jackson?
Tad and Dixie, best ever! OH, killed her off!
GOT IT!!!! Bring back Cady as a new, completely different character (like Claudia/Carly, Sarah Brown on GH). We like her. This storyline works because WE< THE VIEWERS > will care, we like Cady!! Bring her back.
Thorsten is one great human being! It shows in his acting abilites, his respect and love for Eileen (me too!) and his family. ABC let's him go? WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?
I will miss him terribly. I can only hope "the powers that be" will hear us, the viewers, and listen, ANOTHER great idea!! Bring back Thorsten as PATRICK ! Bring him home to Marty,
Cole, Hope, The Mannings - good idea! Bring him home to us the viewers ! ABC I would be happy to be consultant for the soaps and the daytime and primetime viewers, let me ;-)
He is the finest man on AMC I will miss his sexy style and voice
In another head-scratching move, AMC didn't find a way to keep him. Is someone in ABC admin channeling Elmer Fudd or something? TK is a huge draw. You guys just threw away his very large fanbase. Unbelievable.
Thorsten Kaye is MY daily, 24/7 crush!!
Is Thorsten Kaye married? He is a hottie.
Zack and Kendall are the most hostest couples on daytime TV. Dare anyone to disagree with this assessment!!
he's so much more than a weekly crush. he's a daily crush. i love his voice. that deep timber is so down right sexy.
He will always be my crush not only for a week. Love the way he smile and look at Kendall, love his voice (like a real man)......
zack think about the fans, shouldn't we count.?
