Plus, the former ‘All My Children’ star shows HollywoodLife.com how to twerk!

During her tenure as Kendall Hart on ABC’s All My ChildrenAlicia Minshew was a busy girl. Faking pregnancies, facing murder charges and stealing grooms were all in a day’s work for the on-screen daughter of Susan Lucci‘s Erica Kane. But twerking? That was never one of Alicia’s many on-screen endeavours — until now.

Alicia recently paid a visit to HollywoodLife.com‘s New York office, and yes, we asked her if she knew how to twerk. But in our defense, this interview was conducted right after Miley Cyrus‘ VMA debacle — and, honestly, Alicia didn’t need much convincing.

It’s that kind of bold energy that made Alicia a fan-favorite for more than a decade on daytime, and now she’s directing that energy at a few really exciting projects. Along with 2013’s Desires of the Heart, Alicia is also setting her sights online, starring on the web series Tainted Dreams and Beacon Hill: The Series. On Beacon Hill, Kendall will be playing her first lesbian character in a twisted story of “love, sex and politics.” She’s stoked.

Watch our interview with Alicia, then drop a comment: Are you excited for Alicia’s projects? Do you have a favorite Kendall Hart moment? And, most importantly, could Alicia cut it as a back-up twerker?
