Darnell Williams and Debbi Morgan on All My Children (1982-present day)

Daytime drama’s first African-American supercouple Debbi Morgan and Darnell Williams have been playing alter egos  Angie and Jesse Hubbard on and off for over 30 years. The Emmy Award-winning duo have survived fictional births, death and even 41-year old All My Children’s cancellation in 2011. But the saga of Jesse and Angie will continue when the daytime series moves online April 29.
