Question: Do you have a favorite household invention?

Marcy Walker: "The vacuum cleaner, because one of the things I love the most is being able to walk around my floors barefoot, and if there's little rocks or dirt or hair or anything, it drives me nuts. I love being able to know every inch of my floor is clean."

That's a Fact: In part, Walker left AMC in 1984 for fear of being typecast as a vamp. SID 04/02/01


It's hard to imagine, but even Marcy Walker (Liza) didn't get the first role she tried out for on AMC. "I had just moved to New York City when I was 17," she explains, "and I auditioned for a role that I didn't get." But that obviously wasn't the end of her Pine Valley experience. "They called me back, and I auditioned when they were bringing on the characters of Liza, Jesse, Jenny, Greg and Amanda." Lucky for Walker, she was cast in the role of bratty teenager Liza Colby, and the rest is history. "I was so excited because I was about ready to turn eighteen, and I was living on no money," she recalls. "it was the best day." SID 10/15/02

A Mother’s Love

Considering how much kids put their moms through, it's amazing that we only celebrate Mother's Day once a year! This go-round, to mark the special occasion, we gave soap-star mothers a chance to talk about their kids and soap-star kids the opportunity to give a shout out to the women who made it all possible!

A Matter of Trust

As her son Taylor, 13, has grown, so too has Marcy Walker (Liza, AMC), who admits that "you become a different sort of mother when they are 13 than you were when they're 5 or 6." Not that change is a bad thing! "We are able to have an honest and trusting relationship because he's grown up with me as a mom, knowing he can come to me with anything," says Walker. "I'm very, very happy and, to use an overused word, truly blessed to have our relationship be this way." SID 05/14/02

Love's First Blush Tad & Liza: All Fired Up!

When they met, Tad was a runaway con artist still struggling with angst over his complicated family, and Liza was an insecure, wealthy snob who felt the world owed her something. Despite their differences, the sparks flew between them right from the start. Anxious to get over her obsession with Greg Nelson, Liza succumbed to Tad's charm and fell directly into his welcoming bed. Unfortunately, it wasn't long before she learned the cad was also sleeping with her sex-starved mother!

Flash Forward: Many years and many lovers later, Tad and Liza were working at television station WRCW when they discovered they sill made a certain kind of sense together. Having crossed the line between business and pleasure before, now the simultaneously single duo finally have a license to see where their connection might lead. Might the benefit of maturity turn them from oil and water into a rather nice blend?

Hello, Again

What happens when an actor leaves a role -- for years -- and then decides to return?

COMING HOME. Certain actors are indelibly etched in a role. So, even if years have passed -- and the part has been recast -- the chance to bring a dynamic actor back to a soap is often too good to pass up. ... No doubt about it, the first day back can be nerve-wracking. For Marcy Walker, it was positively Pine Valiant. "I was nervous in the beginning," confirms Walker, who reprised the role of Liza Colby on ALL MY CHILDREN in 1997 after an 11-year absence. "It's hard to explain. It was the same, yet different. Kind of like discovering this comfortable, old robe you used to wear and going, 'Oh gosh, I used to love this! It still fits and it's really comfortable!' That's what going back was like."

Of course, Walker had a few old pals around to ease her reentry -- including Michael E. Knight (Tad). "The first time I saw him, it was pretty funny," she recalls, laughing. "He walked into the room and just looked at me. He said, 'Boy, this is a mind blow.' I said, 'I know.'" Walker adds, though, that her character's place on the show has definitely changed. "We were the youth story a decade ago, and now they have this Gen X story going on," she says. In the early '80s, Tad, Liza, Greg, Jenny, Jesse, and Angie provided the teen angst. Now, Bobby, Anita, Kelsey and Scott are the Clearasil kids. "We've moved up in the ranks," Walker explains. "I think it's a great parallel to see this new set of high school people in the position [we used to be in]. It creates more character development." In other words, they've grown up.

Soap Opera Digest: March 1996; Author unknown

Marcy Walker (Liza, ALL MY CHILREN) won the first award of the night as Outstanding Supporting Actress. "It was all so quick, it was like coming out of the cute," she quipped later. "I forgot to thank [Executive Producer] Francesca James, so if I'm out of a job, you need to get me another one."

Outstanding Supporting Actress Marcy Walker (Liza) raided her character's wardrobe for her chic Badgley Mischka pantsuit. "I'm the suit goddess," she quipped. Eyeing the sea of skimpy dresses at the awards reception, Walker continued, "I'm not one of the young ones anymore. I have an 8-year-old son!"

Doesn't a star like AMC's Marcy Walker (Liza) rate a new wardrobe? We've seen that ugly red satin blouse for going on two years...

Best storyline on All My Children-Liza and Adam's Romance

The tale in a nutshell:

In an inspired pairing of two of AMC's strongest characters, Adam and Liza pretended to plan a wedding to make former loves Brooke and Tad jealous. When Liza found out that Adam was lying about giving her half of WRCW, sshe tricked him into going through with the ceremony. A cat-and-mouse game ensued in which Liza tried to seduce Adam (to make the marriage legitimite) and he rejected her (to avoid a settlement). Meanwhile, the groom found himselfunexpectedly jealous of young Jake Martin, who was wooing the bride. Finally, the newlyweds indulged in a night of passion, but immediately denied that it meant anything to them. Liza signed divorce papers (with no settlement), but the couple agreed to delay their breakup and serve as "Couple of the Year" at the Cindy Chandler AIDS benefit. Meanwhile, Liza engineered Dimitri's sale of WRCW to her, but Adam didn't trust her motives. This pigheaded twosome can't bring theirselves to admit what everyone else can see: They're in love. Soap Opera Digest July 1, 1997

Quote from SOD:

Why is Liza attracted to Adam (David Canary)?

Marcy Walker responds:"They're two obstinate, stubborn people. They've fallen in love and they don't want to admit it."

Fowl Play

If the Perdue company needs an actor for its next commerical, perhaps they should call upon Michael E. Knight (Tad), who - after one particularly long day at work - invented his own version of the chicken dance. "Whenever you do weddings or parties on the show, things can run until two or three o'clock in the morning," he explains. "You have six lines... and then wait another three hours for your next three lines. [One time], we were doing something at the Chandler mansion and nobody was getting along. Marcy [Walker, Liza] finally said to me at about 11 o'clock at night, 'Don't you feel like we're a flock of chickens pecking each other's eyes out?'" Taking that as his cue, Knight says he made it his mission to make Walker laugh at every opportunity he could. "I would wait until she was ready to say her lines, then I would be in the background doing [a chicken imitation]."
