Dixie Louise Martin (née Cooney) is a fictional character from the American daytime drama All My Children. The character's run lasted from October 1988 to June 1996, again from July 3, 1998 to February 26, 2002, and finally from December 23, 2005 to January 31, 2007. Initially portrayed by actress Kari Gibson, Dixie was portrayed for most of her existence on the show by actress Cady McClain.

The decision to kill off the character in 2007 attracted much criticism and controversy,[1][2][3][4] with TV Guide being dismayed by the choice and calling her what was the heart and soul of the show.[1]

McClain was eventually brought back to the series, but as a ghost. Her return was on May 2, 2008 and lasted through June 12, 2008. It was announced that in March 2010, McClain will return temporarily to All My Children. [5]
