Expect to see more of Susan Lucci as "All My Children" prepares to say farewell.
The actress, who has appeared as Erica Kane on the soap since its debut 41 years ago, will portray her first new character on the show, playing Erica's evil twin.
According to TVLine, Lucci will take on the role of Jane Campbell, a villainess "who will wreak havoc in Erica’s life in every possible way." Several weeks ago, Kane was kidnapped on her wedding day and it is believed that Campbell is the person behind her abduction.
It's not like Kane can't handle whatever Campbell dishes out. Over the years, the Pine Valley resident has proven herself to be quite a tough cookie, having fought off a grizzly bear and even staged a prison break.
"All My Children" ends its run in September.
