Refresh for updates… Today’s death of One Life to Live and All My Children creator Agnes Nixon is a huge blow to the soap opera world, as evidenced by the outpouring of tributes from Hollywood and beyond. Here a sampling of remembrances from friends, colleagues and many others:

Bob Iger, Disney chairman and CEO: 
“It is with a heavy heart I mourn the passing of television pioneer Agnes Nixon, someone I was proud to call a friend. Agnes’ impact on daytime television and pop culture is undeniable. She was the first to champion socially relevant topics, and the towns and characters Agnes brought to life leave an indelible imprint on television that will be remembered forever.  On behalf of Walt Disney and ABC, I want to extend our deepest condolences to her family.”
