"All My Children" to Introduce Deaf Character

Get ready for another groundbreaking first on ABC's "All My Children." In recent years, the 37-year-old soap — the one with Susan Lucci, if you're not familiar — has featured daytime's first woman-on-woman kiss, daytime's first transgender character and The Slug's first TV cameo (as a member of the paparazzi crashing Erica Kane's 10th wedding). Now, "AMC" is introducing its first deaf character: Walter Novak, to be played by deaf actor and musician Bob Hiltermann. Pine Valley sure has mastered diversity, but just how come the residents can't figure out how to stop cheating on each other?
