Kate Collins Returns to 'All My Children'

kate_collins_all_my_children_abcThere's some big news coming to us from the world of soap. One of the best actresses in the business, Kate Collins, is returning to 'All My Children' as Janet Dillon. You remember Janet, right? Or perhaps you recall her more popular name, Janet from Another Planet. That the nickname the character earned for her bizarre behavior and outrageous antics. She did once throw her sister Natalie down a well, leave her there to die and then threaten to shoot Hayley in the face.

Recently, the character has been played by Robin Mattson -- who is also a wonderful actress -- but Collins return is special because she's the originator of the role.

"He really enjoyed it. The meaner he could be, the happier he was," said Mitchell's partner, Oscar-winning costume designer Albert Wolsky.
