"You can say Eric Nelsen came to star in the soap opera All My Children two years too late or exactly at the right time. The soap had aired on ABC for 41 years until it was cancelled in late 2011. But it found new life as a web series on this year — just as Nelsen, 22, who grew up in West Palm Beach as a Bak Middle School of the Arts student, became a series regular.”"
