According to Internet rumors, All My Children is in the process of recasting Colby Chandler, the daughter of Adam Chandler and Liza Colby. In doing so, the role would also be "aged" to allow for more storyline possibilities for the character.

When last spotted in Pine Valley, Colby was played by 7-year-old actress Kathryn Newton. The actress exited the show when her alter ego was kidnapped from Pine Valley by her on-screen mother, Liza.

Colby will reportedly return as a young woman of about 16 years of age. The return won't be done quietly, as the rebellious teen's reemergence will cause more than a few headaches for her father. Her return will echo much of what Adam went through when another of his daughters, Hayley Vaughan, showed up in Pine Valley in the early 1990s.

If and when Colby does return to Pine Valley, don't expect her mother to be with her. Emmy award-winning actress Marcy Walker has retired from acting to focus on Christian ministries work that helps young children. [Click here for our related story].

It is still too early to report any names of actresses that might be in on the running for the contract role, which would debut near the May Sweeps period. However, some fans on soapcentral.com's message boards have been bandying about the name Portia Reiners, the young actress that recently filled in for an ailing Leven Rambin (Lily Montgomery).
