It is the dream of every actor to become a household name. Several daytime stars have platformed their daytime stardom to having their name up in lights at movie theaters across the globe. Yep, it’s that time again – time to check in with a few stars from Pine Valley’s past.

This edition of your favorite column is a kind of couples edition, because we’re going to check in with Hayley and Mateo and Edmund and Maria, or at least the actors who played them on All My Children. Before we get to the couples, though, let’s check in with fan favorite Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Sarah Michelle played Kendall from 1993 through 1995. From Pine Valley, Sarah Michelle moved on to Hollywood and has become a movie star. After playing Kendall, she played Buffy in the Vampire Slayer series and appeared in several popular movies including Scooby Doo, The Grudge and Happily N’Ever After.

Later this year she’ll appear in the thriller “Possession”. She will also lend her voice to the animated movie “Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey. That feature is set to be released in 2009.

Okay, let’s check in with those couples, shall we?
