Catherine Hicks would totally be in for a 7th Heaven reunion, on one very important condition. The actress joked that she wants Stephen Collins‘ character, Reverend Eric Camden, to be killed off. “We would have to open with Stephen’s coffin,” Hicks, 65, told TMZ on Monday, September 26. “It’s all up to the networks and those types of things. I think we’d all love to be together,” she added. “Eighth Heaven with a new boyfriend for Annie.”
Stephen Collins played Hicks’ TV husband on the WB family drama for 11 seasons from 1996 to 2007. Back in 2014, TMZ released a recording of Collins admitting to sexually abusing young girls in the past. The audio was taped during a 2012 therapy session that he had with his estranged wife, Faye Grant. Collins opened up about the incidents during an interview with Katie Couric, which aired on December 19, 2014. “In 1973, there were two occasions when I exposed myself to this young woman. Several months later, she came to visit and stay with us, with my first wife and me. My wife had gone to sleep, and she and I were watching TV alone together … I knew that something unthinkably wrong had just happened that I couldn’t take back,” he recalled.
