Yes! I was a big AMC fan, so I was delighted to see these Zoom reunion/interviews with former cast members.

I've watched three interviews (links below), and the one with Krystal, et.al. was interesting because the interviewer noted that David Canary (who played Adam & Stuart Chandler) had passed away, and asked each of the actors what it was like to work with him. There was a pause, and then several of them said words to the effect that he was kind and anytime you were in a scene with him, the whole thing was elevated. Then one of them said that the Alzheimer's was wearing on him, and others in the cast had known for a long time.

I remember when he passed away, but the reports either said "natural causes" or nothing at all, so I didn't realize he had AD.

The rest of the interviews are kind of fun (if you watched that show), and it's great to see many of the actors 10 years later.  The David Canary comments were sad, but relevant for this forum.

Interviews:

There will be two more interview segments coming up sometime tomorrow - not sure who will be interviewed, but I'll post them when I see them.
