Plus, the former ‘All My Children’ star shows 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‘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?
