Having won the second season of SOAPnet's "I Wanna Be a
Soap Star" in 2005, Alec Musser joined the cast of All My
Children in the role of Del Henry, brother of Di and
half-brother of Dixie who share a father in common, Seabone
Hunkle. Armed with a sexy smile, Del Henry likes money
almost as much as he likes beautiful women. Despite his
surface interests, Del loves his family and is willing to go
to great lengths to protect them.
In 1994, Del made his presence known to Dixie, who was
shocked that her father had had a long-term affair and that
she had a brother. They became close and Del revealed that
he had a degenerative kidney disorder and needed a
transplant. Despite her husband Tad's strenuous objections,
Dixie agreed to give Del one of her kidneys, which
compromised her health for years to come. Del thrived with a
new kidney and his health returned.
Del encountered Maria Santos Grey, his college love. She
had become pregnant by him years before but miscarried,
which led to her having problems conceiving children.
Despite the history between them, Maria was happily married
to Edmund Grey and did not renew her romance with Del.
Del, an author, met Kendall Hart while she was serving a
jail term for perjury. He agreed to help her write a
tell-all book about her estranged mother, Erica Kane, but it
was never published. Del and Kendall fell in love, became
engaged, and left for her home state of Florida. Eventually
the two broke up and Del's health began to fail again.
Learning he had a sister, Di Kirby, who was given away at
birth, Del found her and asked for one of her kidneys. Di
agreed and the transplant was a success. During the
preparation and recovery period, Del told Di all about her
In 2005, Del was shocked to see that Di had come to Pine
Valley claiming to be Dixie and threatened to expose her.
After she begged Del to keep her secret, he agreed and
decided to stay around Pine Valley. Always happy to surround
himself with the finer things, he began spending time with
the rich and single Opal Cortlandt. He was shocked when
Dixie returned to town very much alive but was saddened when
she was murdered many months later.
He worked as a bartender at ConFusion and lived at
Wildwind with Di and friends.
