 Susan Lucci is not in denial. She knows Tuesday was her last day filming All My Children as it exists now on ABC. At the same time, she said, “it just didn’t seem real.”

“Walking out on to the set for my first scene yesterday morning, I have to say, I started to feel it,” the actress told Wednesday, just several hours after the entire production wrapped its storied 42-year-run on broadcast television. “I had to rein my emotions back in because I had to work … but the setting was spectacular! Perfect for the last day of shooting.”

Even if it might be the last time Lucci, 64, steps into the formidable shoes of daytime’s most recognizable diva, Erica Kane? “That is what went through my mind,” she said. “And yet, somehow, I couldn’t believe it. I mean I have spent my entire adult life in this collaboration with [series creator Agnes Nixon] and playing this amazing character.”
