In her high school yearbook, Marcy Walker looks like she was voted "least likely to play a villainess." With her pixie blonde hairdo and innocent blue eyes, Marcy resembles a preppy prom queen rather than a scheming troublemaker. But don't let that cherubic smile fool you. There's a new witch in Pine Valley named Liza - with a Z for zap!

Playing vindictive, conniving Liza on All My Children is a real switcheroo for Marcy. "I'm a happy person," she explains. "If I cry on Sunday, I can't on Monday. I'm walking around thinking life is wonderful, though for this role, I have to come down and get mad and depressed. Besides, Liza is everything that I wasn't in high school. My parents didn't allow me to date until I was 18, so I never went to a prom or a dance. I never knew what that felt like. And I didn't have the desire to be a cheerleader. That whole scene just wasn't important to me."

Twenty-year-old Marcy didn't stay in one place long enough to be crowned prom queen. Her father's job as a space engineer forced the family to travel around the country and she attended four different high schools. At the age of 10, Marcy recited a monologue from the children's story Alexander and the Terrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day in a school competition, won the contest hands-down and hitched her star to an acting career.

When Marcy graduated, she wasn't quite sure how to go about achieving her dream. Thousands of girls want to be successful actresses, but only a handful make the grade. Fortunately, fate lent a helping hand. One night, she was in the audience at a local play and was spotted by a woman who worked for a New York talent agency. This "fairy godmother" whisked Marcy off to New York and set up a screen test with AMC. The casting director took one look at Marcy's polished, hard-as-nails performance and hired her on the spot.

Coming east also sparked Marcy's love life. She met actor Mark Poppel, who did a brief stint on AMC as Melanie's brother, Peter, and the two have been steady dating for a year. But when she first saw Mark, it wasn't love at first sight. "I didn't like him at all," says Marcy bluntly. "Mark is one of those guys who is nice and honest. I thought he was a fake. Nobody in New York could be that nice. But he's just a sweetheart of a guy. It took a while for him to ask me out because he was so shy. Then, when we finally got together, we clicked."

On their first date, Mark took Marcy to see the French film La Cage Aux Folles and capped off the evening at a French restaurant. The first course consisted of gooey onion soup. The pair did their best to eat neatly, but soon Mark had cheese all over his mouth and was so nervous that he dropped his fork on the floor three times during the course of the meal! However, first date jitters soon melted away once the two discovered how much fun they were having.

Their relationship is much more down-to-earth than the idyllic romance of Jenny and Greg on All My Children. "Jenny and Greg are so perfect," says Marcy. "They never fight and they always have a good time. If Greg and Liza got together, there'd be a bit more to it. She'd nag him and say stuff like 'Would you please pick up your socks. Your mother's coming over and I want this house clean!'

"I knew a lot of girls like Liza who were mean and who put people down because they were different," continues Marcy. "I'm not like that. But I do have Liza's drive, and I know what I want. Every day you go to work and there's always somebody out there who can take it away from you, who could play Liza and take my place. I know - because I'm one of those people.

"I get what I want, so watch out world," jokes Marcy with an impish grin.

Why Marcy Walker Kept Her Wedding A Secret

In June when Marcy Walker left for a week long stay in Bermuda, her All My Children castmates assumed it was just a vacation. They had no idea that Marcy, who plays Liza Colby, was celebrating her marriage to actor/musician Stephen Ferris. Stephen and Marcy married on June 14th with only two close friends (whom they swore to secrecy) as witnesses.

"We're very private people," explains Marcy. "Getting married is a very personal thing and we didn't want anyone to know. We planned it for four months so it wasn't an elopment." Their secret almost leaked out the day before the ceremony. Marcy came into work and discovered the show wanted to give her a haircut for a special scene. "They kept cutting my bangs really short," remembers Marcy, "but I couldn't say anything. I thought I'd look funny for my wedding pictures. I was dying inside because I was the only one who knew I was getting married the next day!"

Marcy and Stephen's parents didn't attend the ceremony, although Marcy did tell her folks a few weeks before the event. "They live in Illinois and Stephen's parents live near Boston, so we didn't want our relatives spending money on air tickets. We thought it'd be much better if we visited each of them for a week and spent some special time with them. They ended up throwing parties for us at both places so it was like two more weddings. All my friends said we did it the best way because planning a big wedding can be such a hassle."

Marcy met Stephen last winter on the AMC set (he plays Duke, a member of Jesse Hubbard's rock band). She was immediately struck by his sense of humor, but they didn't start dating until a few months later. Their first official date was on Valentine's Day, and a few weeks later, they were already busy planning their wedding. There wasn't even time for a proposal. "We hit it off so well and so quickly, it wasn't even a decision to get married. It was just a comment. One day we were at a restaurant and one of said, 'When we get married...' and the conversation just continued. I guess you just know when it's right."

Marcy's 21 years old (she'll be 22 in November), but she wasn't worried about being too young to make such a major decision. "I was amazed deciding to get married was so easy," she says. "it's more than love between us - Stephen's my best friend. We respect each other and get along so well. When I first started daying, I used to have a list of 25 things that a guy had to have. As I got older, the list got smaller and finally I had about 5 traits on the list - trust, honesty, etc. And Stephen filled them all."

Marcy laughs that Stephen doesn't look like anyone she'd ever date, never mind marry. "I only used to go out with blondes," she smiles. "But Stephe, who's dark and Italian, has everything I'd ever want. You realize the covering isn't important."

Marcy says marriage hasn't changed her at all. "The only thing that has changed is now I have a partner, someone to do things with," she explains. "We know we'll always be together."

Daytime TV 1988 Marcy Walker's Ecstatic:
"I'm having a Baby!"

"I've always wanted to have a baby," admitted Marcy Walker (Eden, Santa Barbara) in a recent interview with Daytime TV. Well, this February, Marcy will finally get her wish granted. The Santa Barbara start and the father-to-be Stephen Collins, a cinematographer, are expecting their first child on Valentine's Day.

Marcy and STephen met on the set of Desperado the TV-movie she filmed last year. A mutual friend introduced the pair during the location shoot in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The two struck up a friendship, but nothing further developed as Marcy was still married to Days star Billy Warlock, and Stephen had a girlfriend.

Things changed between the couple months later. Marcy's marriage to Bily ended soon after the movie wrapped. Stephen ended his relationship and moved to Los Angeles. He got in touch with Marcy and they renewed their friendship. They hung out together having a good time. Soon those good times developed into something more.

The couple have no plans to marry just yet, but they recently moved into a new home in Sherman Oaks. A source close to Marcy confides, "Stephen's busy just like Marcy. They are both very understanding of each other and their respective careers."

Once the baby arrives, Marcy won't have to look very far to find a babysitter. Her two teenage brothers recently moved to Los Angeles and they're looking forward to spending plenty of time with their future niece or nephew.

As for the mother-to-be, Marcy admits, "Mentally, I feel fantastic. Anyone who knows me, knows I love children. Physically, I feel wonderful. The only thing I have a problem with is the smell of fish. If I don't have Spanish Olives every day, I get a little possessed."

What does Marcy want from motherhood? "Mutual respect. I've learned in the past year that respect is a powerful, important, essential part of any relationship. I really hope to make my child feel loved, respected and safe to be who they want to be!"
