Today we're talking with Marcy Walker, ALL MY CHILDREN's Liza Colby. Liza has recently
agreed to give Adam Chandler another chance, but David Hayward is determined to expose
Adam's secret and get Liza for himself. Will he succeed? Welcome, Marcy!
Question: I love
your hair short, but do you miss the Eden Capwell long locks?
Marcy Walker: I am in the process of
growing it out as we speak. I keep jpoking with the hair people that I want my hair to be
like Crystal Gayle's again. I really miss my long hair.
Question: Do you like working with Michael
E. KNIGHT and is there any chance for Tad and Liza to get back together? I like Tad and
Liza better than Tad and Dixie.
Marcy Walker: Michael and I have been
friends for many years and we love working with each other. We always ask to work together
more. I like it when the fans like Tad and Liza together. I think Tad and Liza will
interact as friends but not be a couple. A lot of people like Tad and Dixie together and
Adam with Liza. As long as Tad and Liza are friends, they will have scenes together.
Question: Which cast members are you
closest to on the show? Are there any people that you socialize with outside of work?
Marcy Walker: I'm close with Jennifer
BASSEY and Kelly RIPA and Amelia MARSHALL. Of course David CANARY and Michael KNIGHT.
David CANARY and Jennifer BASSEY are the people I see the most outside of work. When you
have children it's hard to have the time to go out a lot.
Question: What's your favorite meal?
Marcy Walker: Pizza. It's the four basic
Question: Marcy, I loved the shoes you
wore at Super Soap Weekend! Where did you buy them?
Marcy Walker: Thank you. They give me
about 4 extra inches. I bought them at Nine West here in NYC and they come in different
Question: Marcy, do you ever keep in touch
with A. MARTINEZ?
Marcy Walker: We keep in touch. I haven't
spoken to him recently, though. We talk and keep in touch through other mutual friends. I
really care for him and don't want to ever lose contact with him.
Question: Do you ever visit the Adam/Liza
or Marcy/David Web pages?? (There are a lot of them!!)
Marcy Walker: I've never visited there,
but people have sent me print outs of the pages.
Question: Marcy, I think it's cute how
Jennifer calls you her Sunbeam, do you know how she came up with that?
Marcy Walker: One day, she said "You
are always full of light and make me smile. You're just my sunbeam." She just kept
calling me that. I always try to let her know that I couldn't be her sunbeam if she
weren't my sun. I lover her like a friend and a mother.
Question: Every time I see you at a fan
event you really seem to be relaxed and enjoy your time with the fans, especially at Super
Soap Weekend. Do you ever get sick of fans stopping you?
Marcy Walker: No never. I don't go to very
many events so that might be why I enjoy it so much. I see it as a gift to me to be able
to see and hear what people think. In a way, it's like applause. I really treasure the
time with the fans, like at Super Soap.
Question: Will you ever attend an AMC Fan
Club Luncheon! We have been there the last 2 years, and we would love to see you there!
Patchy in PA
Marcy Walker: I'll be there next year,
Question: Hi Marcy, this is Robert. I know
you remember me from the many times we met and at the dog show. I just wanted to ask you
what you felt was the best story that you have had since returning to AMC? What would be
your dream storyline if you could have one?
Marcy Walker: Hi. It's a tie between the
whole Tad/Dixie/Liza triangle when I first came back and then the trick wedding with Adam
and their relationship. That was such fun! I think it would be cool if nobody knew who the
father of Liza's baby is. It's not Jake, or Adam or anybody. We'd know everyone had a hand
in tampering with it.
Question: Marcy, do you see any kind of
storyline with Liza and Dixie happening in the future now that Cady McCLAIN is back?
Marcy Walker: I think Dixie's time will be
more involved with Tad. We've had some scenes, though. I don't really know what will
happen. Cady is great. One of the best actresses on the show. I'd love to have a storyline
Question: Marcy, are you going to be
making anymore made-for-tv movies soon?
Marcy Walker: I'm just getting back in the
swing of things and am in the process of getting an agent in New York. I don't have
anything planned at this point, but plan to get back into the groove soon. I went to the
theater the other night and now I would love to do a play.
Question: Marcy, I've always wondered who
and what ever happened to Liza's biological father? I don't believe they've ever mentioned
Marcy Walker: I don't remember his name
either, but I believe he died off camera back in 1984 or 1985. Wait -- It was Larry Colby!
Question: Hi Marcy, just love Liza and
Adam, but are you married and do you have children?
Marcy Walker: I'm not married. I have one
son from my previous marriage and he is nine years old.
besides David CANARY who would you like to see Liza have a romantic relationship with?
Marcy Walker: I think it would interesting
to see Liza and David Hayward together. Vincent IRIZARRY is someone I have great respect
for. He is great to act with. Just for kicks, I've always thought it would be interesting
to see Liza and Jackson.
Question: Who was your inspiration to go
into show business?
Marcy Walker: No one specific. It was
something I always loved. I did a lot of plays in high school. I've always loved acting. I
have always admired Ellen Burstyn and thought if I could ever be as good as that, then
this is what I wanted to do. She inspired me to do my best.
Question: Hi Marcy this is Kelli. I'm
about to become a mother and knowing you are a mother in real life, I was wondering if you
had any tips for me :-)
Marcy Walker: The most important advice
that I could give would be don't forget to breathe, try to be patient. When my so was
born, I invented a "Mommy Time Out." And my son understood what I was doing! I
would just take a few minutes to calm down.
Question: Marcy, I went all the way from
Philly to Florida to see you at soap weekend and I have to say you are beautiful. Did you
have a good time there?
Marcy Walker: I had a great time! I was so
happy to be invited back. I hope all the fans had as good as time as I did!
Question: You act like a Capricorn. What
is your birthday?
Marcy Walker: November 26. I'm a
Question: Marcy, What is your favorite
Marcy Walker: Since my son was just a
baby, we have always made our own wrapping paper. I get a big bolt of white paper, tons of
paint and we paint it. We cut it and wrap it. That's my favorite.
Question: Hi Marcy, do you still keep in
touch with Amanda BEARSE? I would love if she came back to do some guest spots as Liza's
old friend! Would she do it?
Marcy Walker: I've know that Amanda is
directing a lot these days after starring on Married With Children. I think she might come
back for a day or two. We haven't spoken in quite a while though. I'd love it if she came
Question: Does Michael ever have you
laughing so hard that it's hard to get through a scene?
Marcy Walker: Yes. Michael KNIGHT is our
class clown. Sometimes he makes these chicken noises before we start a scene and I'll be
laughing too hard to do the scene.
ABCTim: We have time for one more...
Question: Hi Liza! Your character was
pretty evil way back when (remember the Jesse "rape"?) Do you think the new and
improved Liza will ever revert back?
Marcy Walker: Absolutely! She has it in
her personality to be vindictive and to be threatened. I don't think that's gone, just
sleeping right now. If Liza's buttons were pushed, she would defend herself and her child.
Who knows what will happen once she finds out what Adam has done!
ABCTim: ABCTim again. Marcy wants to
thank you all for joining her this afternoon. And she wants to wish everyone a very happy
