There’s good news for ALL MY CHILDREN fans who are missing Alicia Minshew (Kendall), because she is appearing in the indie movie, The Funeral Guest, which was finally released on DVD this week!
“I loved that script so much,” Minshew told Soaps In Depth, “and I was wondering what happened to the film.”

In the movie from Matthew and Sean Kohnen, Minshew plays Robin Hunter, who clashes with Julianna Robinson’s Emily, who insinuates herself into her family.
“It’s a story about this girl who is desperately trying to be connected to people,” Minshew explained, “and the way that she does it is by going to strangers’ funerals and trying to feel the emotion that others are feeling. So she’s like a funeral crasher.
“But one of the funerals she goes to,” the actress continued, “someone mistakes her for their estranged sister and she goes along with it and allows the family to believe that she’s their family member and starts to love this family.”

Minshew plays the sister-in-law who knows that Emily is faking, and calls her on it. “And I’m mean! she exclaimed. “I’m telling you, playing Kendall prepared me for these mean, bitchy roles because I got to go there a lot in her story. So here I am again, just kind of pulling from that reservoir of bitchiness. But I feel like every time my character is mean, she is able to justify it. My character calls her out on her stuff and is kind of the one that you love to hate.”
