Agnes Nixon, part 2

As our chat continues, Ms. Nixon goes into more depth on writing her own soaps -- One Life to Live and All My Children -- and the issue-oriented storylines, such as interracial romance and abortion, that she was famous for pioneering in daytime.  She also shares her insights as to why Erica Kane, the lead character on All My Children holds such appeal to both women and men.  Finally, Ms. Nixon discusses some interesting fan encounters she's had over the years.

Agnes Nixon, part 3

At last, the final part of our conversation with Ms. Nixon as she reveals her all-time favorite storyline that she wrote for a soap.  Can you guess what it is?  Also, Agnes talks more about her mentor Irna Phillips and shares her thoughts and concerns over the recent relocation of her signature show, All My Children, to Los Angeles.  This is an extra-long installment, so brew a cup of coffee and settle in for Agnes Nixon at her most candid.  Although we filmed this in October 2009, we held back on posting this until February 2010 due to the sensitive nature of some of Ms. Nixon's statements.  We promise it was worth the wait.
