Happy news to report: Although it's for a sad occurrence, Taylor Miller and Gillian Spencer will be reprising their All My Children roles of Nina and Daisy Cortlandt (respectively) in April to mark the on-screen passing of Palmer Cortlandt -- played by the late, great James Mitchell.
Yes, this means that AMC will be addressing the death of Mitchell, and his on-screen alter ego Palmer, in an upcoming episode. The actor passed away in January. Recently, new All My Children headwriters Donna Swajeski and David Kreizman told us that they plan on using Palmer's death as a springboard for some exciting new stories.
Taylor played Palmer's much put-upon daughter, Nina, from 1979 to 1989. She was last seen in January, when she appeared on the 40th anniversary episode.
Gillian played Nina's mother Daisy -- Palmer's first (and third) wife -- also from 1979 to '89. Daisy was last seen in 1995 when she was trying to get Palmer back with his (seventh) wife, Opal. Arguably, Opal and Daisy are tied as the loves of Palmer's life (who can forget Daisy's endearing nickname for him -- "PC"?).
As more details about Palmer's memorial develop, we'll let you know.
