My all time forever favorite was Luke and Laura on the run from Frank Smith/left handed boy. The only other story that came close to grabbing me like L&L was Sonny and Alexis coming together.


Lesley taking the wrap for Laura killing David Hamilton. Denise Alexander was amazing on the stand and the love that Rick and Lesley shared through that was awesome!


Ned/Lois and Eddie Maine was such a fun story.



susan M.

What I remember are my favorite episodes of GH are: Luke & Laura’s Wedding, Anna,Robert, Shawn Donnelly, (the day’s of the WSB)…The first time Robert met his daughter Robin ! Liked Audry & Dr. Hardy(great couple) & when Dr. Hardy would alway’s
tell the Christmas Story To the kids in the hospital & everyone else that was there. Liked
the romance between Bobbie & Dr. Drake (Rick Springfield). The first time Laura came on the show. Liked the Webber brothers….There is so many good stories then & especially now(2013)!


Everything you said is what i liked too, though there was some much earlier stuff with Jessie Brewer i liked as well plus a few other things.


The metro court countdown one of the best story n brought scrubs together! Even though we knew that Robin was ok the way each day played was magic…we need scrubs magic back!


Too many great moments to mention. The mob stuff grew tiresome after awhile. Glad thats not the shows main focus anymore.


Agreed! The disappearance of the mob stories brought me back to GH.


Left Handed Boy storyline hands down.
I also loved the whole Grant Putnum/Celia Quartermaine/Jimmie Lee storyline
Monica/Rick/Alan back in their heyday
Heather’s first round giving the LSD
Luke & Laura’s Wedding and basically their entire love story even starting in the disco… ick how it happened but who can forget Herb Albert’s “Rise” playing?!

So many great moments..


I’m a big Robert Scorpio fan, so mostly all the story involving him with Holly, Anna, Sean, Frisco, Luke.Laura etc, etc.

When Robert Scorpio first showed up for the ice princess, I got hooked on GH ad stayed hook for all his time on the show. RobertHolly marriage pf convenient and falling in (Swoon) with Luke coming back from the dead, Susan Moore murder investigation, Robert ex-wife and Anna/Robert back story, The mount rushmore adventure, Robert marrying Anna, loved all of it.


I agree with everything in your post. Robert Scorpio, IMO, the best character ever. However, where is he now??????

Jake R.

Robert Scorpio IS the best character. I do love Luke though, but Robert was the first daytime super spy! Anna is also amazing-she was kicking ass and taking names before “Alias,” “Covert Affairs” and all these other shows.


I loved the mystery stories like the one where the then chief of police (Bert Ramsey) was fournd out to be “Mr. Big!” Who woulda thunk it??

Bill Wilson

This was one of mine, too, Justin! Loved Bob Hastings in that role!

Jake R.

That was a great storyline! Mild-mannered Burt!


There are so very many really great stories that I can not just go with one..
I liked the so-called mob years. always on the edge.
Also, all the early years of the Quartermain stories were a favorite.
Th weddings were an event , not a story, so not anything great just glitter and flash..

(Recently I like the Caleb story ..


I enjoyed when the real Grant Putnam was revealed to be locked away as Patient 402.


Luke and Laura’s wedding. Jason telling Sam that her daughter Lila had died. Kristina’s funeral (Alexis’ sister) when Alexis threw her sister’s ashes on Sonny. This past Thanksgiving, the tribute to Edward with he and Lila walking upstairs at the end. Stone’s death. And so many others – too many to list. What an amazing show with a rich history.


Metro Court and Elizabeth and Jason.


I was a devoted GH fan back in the day and remember so many great stories. I suppose some of my favorites are (in no particular order):
When Phil Brewer finally got what was long overdue and the trial of Jessie for his murder. (She didn’t do it.)
When Lucille March finally became Mrs. Al Weeks. (That was so cute.)
Steve and Audrey finally getting together permanently.
The Ice Princess story – Luke and Laura on the run again and the introduction of Robert Scorpio, Sean Donnelly and Tiffany Hill. (And who could forget Agent O’Reilly.)
Monica’s breast cancer story was very compelling and exceptionally well done.


Sean was not brought on during the ice princess, he was part of the aztec story 3 yrs later

Jake R.

I remember Agent O’Reilly getting shot while she was in the phone booth. So sad! That Aztec Storyline was THE longest mystery they ever had; it went on over the course of two summers if I recall.

Phil Seldis

Any and every time close friends Dr. Steve Hardy and Nurse Jessie Brewer sat down in Steve’s office and discussed what was going on in the hospital and in each other’s lives. In the early years, if the show was appointment viewing, your appointment was with Steve and Jessie. They were GH’s Nancy and Chris, Tom and Alice, Maeve and Johnny, Joe and Ruth…etc.


There are too many to pick just one! I love GH!!! Of course Luke and Laura’s wedding, Jason and Brenda’s wedding, Maxie and Spinelli’s non-wedding, Tracy and Luke’s weddings (all), Robin’s first scenes with Robert, anything with Robert and Anna, Lucy discovering Nik and Liz having an affair, anything with Laura, Luke, and Lucky, Robin and Patrick’s weddings, Sonny and Brenda’s weddings, any of the karaoke scenes at Jakes, the Metro Court hostage situation, anything with Carly and Jax, anything with Jason, Spinelli, Maxie, Brenda, Molly, Diane, Tracy, and Emma. the Ice Princess story, anything Cassadne, anything Faison, the Santa episode with Maxie and Spinelli, Frisco and Felicia, Robin and Stone, Robin’s death, Jason’s death, the Nurse’s Balls, and way to many more wonderful storylines and episodes!!! I have seen most of the 50 years and have loved them all!!! Congratulations GH!!! Love the show… can’t wait for the next episode and wish they were longer!!!


Luke and Laura wedding(because of Elizabeth Taylor). Jason and Sam wedding because it was odd and special. Maxie and Spinelli non-wedding. Sonny and Brenda’s wedding,Lucky and Liz wedding.Mod story with Manny.Shooting at the church with Jason and Sonny. The Cassidines, and anything Carly and Jaxs and anything Jason and Sam especially the Mexico trip looking for Michael and Kristina.Robin and Jason’s death. The birth of Daniel and the death of Edward Q.I liked Todd, sepecially when Sam went to work for him.

Lynn A.

My all time favorite is when Sonny confronted Brenda and found the wire tap on her. Best emotional scenes ever! Second favorite would be when Lucky was supposedly killed in the fire and the fallout scenes with Elizabeth, Luke and Laura.


My two favorites (I couldn’t have just 1) are the time in 1978 when Laura killed David Hamilton and Lesley took the wrap. Amazing writing by Doug Marland and I was glued to my TV set during the summer of 1980 when my Luke and Laura were on the run for their lives. Pat Falken-Smith’s writing was at its peak, Genie and Tony were pure gold and the world was in love with them…


Loved Laura and Scotty with Bobbie. Frank Smith, Ice Princess, Heather on LSD, Susan Moore’s murder, Alan trying to kill rick and Monica, Mexico, Bobbie in Florida, Mt rushmore, Bombing of the arts festival, Faison and the crystal, Robert’s showdown with faison, Jagger, Karen, Jason shipwrecked, Bobbie held hostage, Luke and Laura’s return, Audrey and steve attacked, BJ’s death, Puerrto rico, Stone and Robin, Nurses Ball, Mary Mae and Edward, Damian’s murder, Casadine takes over hospital, Carly;s revenge, Liz and Lucky, End Game, Lucas’ coming out, Hotel Fire, Train wreck, Scubs, Robert and the virus, Anna’s return, Brenda’s return, and everything in the last year!


Diana was killed by Alice Grant. Heather accidentally took the poisoned tea..


My all time favorite was liason but now I’m loving quiz & I did love l&l when it was Greg v!!!


Wow, so many but here it goes: MEMORABLE STORY LINES…..
The Diana Taylor Murder–who did it? Lassa Fever….. Rick and Monica–their passion for each other, The Ice Princess, Bobbie and Roy Deluca, Laura being hypnotized by David Gray, Robert Scorpio as Police Commissioner, Grant Putnam as a DVX agent, Natalia telling Luke she was a spy, The chemistry between Courtney and Jax, the idea of Kelly’s Diner, being a place for so many, The Floating Rib–yesterday and today, Lois and Ned, Sky being a Quartermaine, Sonny falling for Emily, The bringing to life of Heather Webber, Frisco, and so many others!!


I start watching GH in 2003

And JASAM caught my eye

When kelly monaco(sam) lost her baby, I was


That story of her and Steve (jason) blending together and

bonding together was magical!!!!!

2004 was a good/ bad for JASAM
That was GH AT THEIR BEST!!!!!


o,k….im really dating myself now ,, but i remember way back when audreys son lil tommy was kidnapped,,,,i think by phil brewer if my memories are correct,,,it went on for months…at the end of every show audrey would look into the camera and say ,,oh tommy where are you….i was like 7 years old at the time ,,this was pre luke and laura…2nd choice definetly leslie takeing the blame for laura killing david hamilton


oh 3rd would have to be laura coming out of a comatose state and going back into it,,not the best storyline but genie francis blew it out of the water on this one,,,,with an emmy at the end for her


1. Alice killed Diana Taylor but tried to frame Anne Logan.
2. Luke returns from the “dead” to find his lady love, Holly married to best friend, Robert.
3. Laura’s return from the “dead” in 1983.
4. The Laurelton Murder mystery with Terry & Bobbi and introduced Lucy Coe.
5. Who killed DL Brock
6. Robin/Stone AIDS story
7. BJ’s death
8. Tiffany & Sean battle for Lucas


Alice didn’t try to frame Annie, it was Heather. She wrote Anne’s name using Diana’s finger to make it look as though Diana was trying to write it in her own blood. I remember Bert Ramsey asking Anne if she spelled her name with an “e” at the end because it was important.


My favorites would be Lucy and Doc, Anna and Robert, Patrick and Robin, Robin coming to Port Charles and the Asian Adventures –


My absolute favorite is everything involving Luke and Laura. This ice princess, their wedding, their adventures on the run but most of all the moment Laura told Luke she was pregnant. A very close second is the love story of robin and stone and their HIV storyline. That storyline brought so much awareness to the cause and showed the realistic effects of the disease, stone’s death and robin’s life showcased both ends of the spectrum. I will always be so proud of GH and all the actors involved!!!!!


My ALL TIME favorite GH story? The Bradley Ward disappearance aka murder mystery. I loved the way it unfolded from Lucky and Sly found the bloody nightgown and gun in Mary Mae’s house and then Luke and Laura unearthed Bradley’s body while digging a rose garden. The pace, the twists and turns, it was old fashioned and brilliant storyline that kept us on our toes through out.

Jake R.

What ever did happen to Cousin Sly? And his sister Jennie?


So many
Luke and Lauran on the run, Laura’s return outside of the mayor mansion (with the Laura theme song by Chris Cross in the background), Dominque’s death and dieing in Scotty’s arms, Robin and Stone’s romance, the Cassadine weather machine and the discovery of Anna (Love) being Robin’s mother . There are so many others!


I have watched for a long time with a few shut off in disgust.
I loved Robert with Robin and Anna showing up the story of the Chinatown , kidnapping Robin, her three godfathers.
BJ”S heart story, Felicia knocked it out of the park, she made me cry seeing it was BJ’s heart yet her daughter would live.
Loved almost all the show Loved AJ trying his damnedest to get his son from the mob. , Hated and still will not watch any and all the mob stories killers and mob bosses as hero’s introduced me to other soaps.
I love Sean and Tiffany,the wedding still makes me laugh The show had far to many couples I liked, Bobbi with Tony, original Jerry Jacks. Jax in the beginning.
I loved Kevin, Lucy, Mac Felicia. I loved Felicia with Frisco .
Loved Lucky as a child he was great. Lucky with Liz after the rape, and when he found out his father raped his mother and his world collapsed. Loved him as a child like Robin, they were the future of the show,and they still could be.
Loved seeing he didn’t die in the fire. Laura with her heart broken when she thought her son was dead. Even liked Nickolas and his relationship with his brother later on.
The adventure stories were fun to watch,then the show was completely ruined. Mob, Mob Mob. ? So many great memories so much to choose.


My all-time favorite storyline was the love story and marriage between Holly & Robert Scorpio. A great story and a wonderful romance with amazing chemistry between the actors. It showed at last that a happy marriage did not have to be boring! I hope we get to see Holly & Robert again during the 50th Anniversary!


I started watching GH around 1970 when I was 8 years old. My aunt got my sister and I hooked on it along with OLTL. Stopped watching late 80s/early 90s when plots became too unbelievable which lost my interest and came back last year when RC and FV took over. In the past 43 years my favorites were/are…..

Relationships: Steve & Audrey; Sharon & Henry; Jane & Howie; Dan trying to woo Jessie; Lucille & Al; Lee & Gail; Peter & Diana; Rick & Lesley; Scotty & Laura; Bobbie & Noah; Heather & Joe Kelly; Rose & Hutch; Edward & Lila; Alan/Monica/Rick; Celia & Jimmy Lee Holt; Robert & Tiffany; Luke & Tracy; Kristina & Trey; Kate/Sonny/Connie, Britt/Patrick/Sabrina; Maxie/Spinelli/Ellie.

Other characters: Jeff; Amy; Ruby; Emma; Epiphany.

Storylines: Audrey accused of murder (the first storyline I remember with the victim lying near the toilet); Laura accidently killing David Hamilty with Lesley confessing to the murder; Scotty proposing to Laura at the Christmas tree along with their wedding and honeymoon; Heather’s obession with Jeff, infamous iced tea swtich, framing Annie for Diana’s murder, building relationship with Joe Kelly; Lefthanded Boy; Maxie’s pregnancy; Susan Moore’s murder; Alan trying to kill Rick & Monica only to find them in the rubble holding hands. The one my sister and I looked forward to the most every year was Steve Hardy’s Christmas story. It was a must see. Wish they would play still put it on at Christmas instead of a recent episode.

I’m sure I’ve missed other relationships/characters/storylines that will be remembered as soon as I hit “submit” but really happy to be back at GH. 🙂


Cartini are doing s fabulous job in their writing People should not give up. Remember
nothing is as it seems. they are touching all basis for the 50th anniversary. enjoy the ride. I don’t think you will be sorry.

Andy G.

You know, I almost feel sorry for Demi Moore. Has anyone else noticed that, in all this hoopla over GH’s 50th, absolutely no one is clamoring for the return of Jackie Templeton?

Some of my favorite GH moments from over the decades I’ve watched (in no particular order, and too many more to mention):

1. The left handed boy/Luke & Laura on the run.
2. The Ice Princess story line
3. Brenda’s mental breakdown at a photo shoot
4. Robin & Stone’s AIDS diagnosis/the Nurses’ Ball extravaganzas
5. Rena Sofer as Lois Cerullo
6. Spinelli calling Sonny “the Pacino-esque one”
7. Alexis toking up on medical marijuana during her cancer treatment
8. Monica’s breast cancer
9. BJ/Maxie’s heart transplant
10. Laura’s 1983 return

Thanks for the memories, GH, and under your current production team I trust that the best is yet to come!

Jake R.

I worked with Demi Moore on a movie once. Trust me, she’s no one anyone need clamor for!


Funny you should say that the actor who played Steve Hardy said she was awful he could not figure out how she made it into the movies.


Loved the Laura/Leslie/David Hamilton storyline and the whole cheesy but fun Ice Princess storyline.


I loved the ”whodunit” stories, all of them that kept me on the edge wondering, they were the great ones ..
I never was couple/love story person..
From the first radio soap love story that ended in breakup the misery of soap opera love stories have been much the same with different actors playing out the same old happy to heartbreak stories for 60 years, blah….
so yah, the mysteries, thrillers, chillers, are my favorites..


I did not start watching GH until the airplane scene with Sonny and Brenda. I think this was around 1994. My cousins used to watch this show and I watched SANTA BARBARA, if it had not been cancelled yet. Otherwise I might have been watching a little GUIDING LIGHT.

Anyway, I missed all the fun of the 80s – its hey day, but I had homework! 🙂

I did enjoy Liz with Jason after Lucky “died.” I enjoyed the transformation of Carly (played by Sarah Joy Brown, at the time). I enjoyed the comedy of Brenda and Jason being married; the comedy of Jax and Alexis and Ned and Chloe being married. Robin and Patrick finally getting their act together, though watching them argue was fun. I liked Lulu and Johnny, though Lulu and Dante were/are really something. I liked Jerry Jacks as played by Sebastian Roche and his attraction to Alexis. I liked Xander. The arrival of Damien Spinelli. I loved Liz and Lucky and Nick and Emily at Kelly’s.

Sadly I think there were more things I remember that I did not like during that time – Felicia cheating on Mac with Luke; Emily being killed off; Georgie being killed off; Edward being replaced by CC Capwell; Sam sleeping with Rick. Sonny’s sister and her involvement with Jason and AJ and Jax and Nikolas. The missed opportunities between Liz and Jason. But that is all in the past.

I can say I am very delighted to be part of the rebirth of GH and being able to see all these LEGENDS: Tristan Rogers, Finola Hughes, Tony Geary, Genie Francis, Constance Towers, Anders Hove, Kristina Wagner, Jack Wagner, Lynn Herring, Kin Shriner, Robin Mattson, etc., etc. I am very excited for the future.

Jake R.

My absolute favorite storyline was the Ice Princess caper. Everyone on that mystery Island, the location shoots, the introduction of the Cassadines. Everyone seems to forget that Mikko’s brother Victor (played by Thaao Penghlis) wasn’t killed but sent to prison. I think they should bring HIM back onto the show and have him hooked up with his sister-in-law Helena to take revenge on the Spencers. I’ve emailed one of the show’s ep’s about it on Facebook but I think he ignored me lol.

Left-handed boy/Frank Smith was a close second. Something no one ever mentions from the Left-handed boy story was “Sally” the cross-dressing hitwoman…I mean hitMAN. How groundbreaking was THAT in 1980?

That David Gray/Sword of Malkuth storyline was also cool.

Luke & Laura reuniting at the Mayor’s Residence was even better than their Wedding!

And I liked when Luke and Robert had a falling out because Robert married Holly. They patched things up after that Prometheus Disk Caper, and I always remember Robert saying “schedule” the way the Brits/Aussies do and Luke corrected him and said it the “American” way. That was when you knew they would be friends again 🙂


Boy there are some stories that I like going way-back-when.There’s no particular order here, just as they pop into my mind. There was an interracial love story involving a blind-from-birth white man and a black doctor. He didn’t know what “color” was and he fell in love. There was Audrey’s storyline with her secret baby and the blackmailing Mrs Nelson who Audrey was accused of murdering. There was the who-dun-it murder of Phil Brewer with all the suspects going in and out of the doctor’s office – ultimately is was Augusta McLeod who was uncovered as the murderer. The Diana Taylor (when played by Valerie Starrett) pregnancies. I enjoyed the David Hamilton/Lesley/Laura triangle and his death and Lesley’s false confession to protect Laura. Luke and Laura on the run. Their wedding with Elizabeth Taylor in attendance. The Ice Princess storyline. The heart transplant surgery from BJ to Maxie. There was Kevin O’Connor the murderer and the introduction of Lucy Coe as a mousy librarian storyline. Anything in the early years with the Quartermaines.The AIDS storyline with Stone and Robin. I could think of more, but enough said. Let it be said though, that I have hated everything and anything to do with the Sonny mob and the characters involved in any pro-Sonny storyline.


My favorite storyline is the growing romance and adventures of Frisco and Felicia. I now watch GH with the return of Frisco Jones for the 50th anniversary. I really hope and a lot of my many friends hope that Jack will sign on for a lot longer than just for the 50th. Their growing romance is every young girls dream of having and to me they are the #1 super couple. The other super couples are great as well but these two will always be my favorite.

My favorite storyline is of course when Felecia came onto the show. Her being an Aztec Princess, and how Frisco hid her from the goons that were looking for her. The whole Aztec treasure storyline. Also when Tony got shot,and how Frisco blamed Felecia for it, how it tore them apart and how they slowly put them back together again, and how it bonded Tony, Tania, Frisco and Felecia together during that time. I liked how one sl drifted into the beginning of another sl. I loved the Asian Quarter sl, when Robert learned he had a six year old daughter, named Robin. Frisco and Felecia’s wedding. I loved the Laurelton sl. I loved the Brownstone, where everybody mostly lived. The introduction of Duke. Felecia and Frisco going on the run when she was accused of sealing money and the mink coat. Bert being Mr. Big. The Deaths of Tania, Stone dying of Aids. Frisco returning from the Dead, his reunion with Felecia. It took awhile but it did happen. Felecia’s pregnancy, and the birth of Maxie. Maxie’s heart transplant sl was a tearjerker, when Maxie was saved but Bj died. Frisco returning for that sl was the best. Felecia and Frisco reunion had resulted in Felecia getting pregnant again and giving birth to Frisco’s daughter, Georgie. There were so many great sl’s. Luke and Laura being on the run from Frank Smith. The Ice Princess sl. The introduction of Robert Scorpio, and Tiffany Hill. Jason and Sam’s sl. There are so many wonderful sl’s. GH keeps me watching. Now with the vets returning, especially Frisco Jones the show is being given new life. I am hoping Frisco will stay. I have been a devoted fan for 30+ years. Congrats GH on 50 years, I hope you make it toanother 50 years.


This is how I feel. I will always be and F&F fan also I understand why Felicia feels and why she went with Mac, not happy about it but I understand it. I think the writers rushed the storyline when Frisco came back and that’s why she choose Mac. GH always led from one storyline to another and I miss the good old days with F&F, R&H and Sean and Tiffany and Tony. The relationship that Tony and Frisco had were like they could be real brothers and the friendship that Tony and Felicia had was awesome!!! Robert should have been part of the anniversary not in a coma. Thank God for youtube so when I am having an off day I can watch my show and feel better. But, I totally agree with this above statement, thanks


I will be 50 this year also-so my memories of GH go back to my first real memories of anything at all.
By far, my favorite storylines contain the unforgettably iconic Frisco & Felicia.
I am addicted to the Asian Quarter storyline and it is where I go to on Youtube when I need a good dose of nostalgia to lift my day. That particular storyline forever united F&F and introduced us to Anna Devane and Robin Scorpio.
From an acting standpoint-the Maxie/BJ heart transplant storyline gave us some of the most memorable performances in GH history by Kristina Wagner, Brad Maule, Jack Wagner, Jackie Zeman and Lynn Herring.

susan M.

What is the name of Laura’s sister who was a nurse at GH? Can’t rememeber her name. Her sister isn’t mentioned in the People Magazine for GH 50th Anniversay or
even a picture oh her.

Barbara t loves One life to live
Barbara t loves One life to live

Amy, She really died a few years ago from Kidney failure, sad it would be so nice to see her again, Her name was shell Kepler, she was 49 when she died.


Lauras stepsister was Amy Vining. Her potrayer was the late Shell Kepler who sadly passed away several years ago.


Her sisters name was Amy Vining the actress passed away a few years back. I think the actress’s name was Shell Kepler but that may not be right.


My favorite storyline is the growing romance and adventures of Frisco and Felicia. I hope the writers will make them get back together. Frisco & Felicia are meant to be together forever. Felicia with Mac is boring.

General Hospital

GH’s Laura Wright and Wes Ramsey Talk Their Love Connection & The Demands Of Daytime

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

After presenting for the first time together, at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmys since they’ve been a couple, Laura Wright (Carly) and Wes Ramsey (Peter aka Henrik) of General Hospital have certainly been in the throes of a romantic, fun, and cherished relationship. The two former stars of Guiding Light reconnected last year at Emmy time. Now, sharing their over one year anniversary, Michael Fairman TV caught up with Laura and Wes to get some insight into what makes their relationship work amidst the hustle and bustle, and pace of both being on a network television daytime drama series, and with the pressures of Hollywood where often relationships between two actors seem to start hot and heavy but then fizzle out.

If you caught this week’s GH, you witnessed that the town of Port Charles has found out that Peter is the notorious Cesar Faison’s son, and the ramifications that will be felt for weeks and months and potentially years to come. Meanwhile, Carly is in all sorts of trouble, thanks to naughty Nelle (Chloe Lanier). Nelle is making Carly look awfully unstable and what happens next could change Carly’s life forever.

So, what do these two lovebirds have to say about their relationship and their passion for working on the soaps? Check out what they had to share below. 

Wes, you had met Laura originally years ago on Guiding Light.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Yes, 15 years ago in New York.

And what did you think of her then?

Wes: Well, I was smitten, but I had to keep it to myself.

You had to keep it under wraps, huh?

Wes: Yep!

Laura: I was married then.

Wes: She was pregnant with her second child.

Laura: And he’s a good Kentucky boy.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Uh-huh! But we would run lines in the green room and I would try very hard to make sure she didn’t catch me staring at her… too often. But we laughed, and had great conversation.

Laura: I would always say, “Wes, will you run lines with me?,” because I would want to run my lines.

Wes: We never had story together, but she always knew I was game to hang out with her for a moment.

It’s good when you’re in a relationship with someone and you can laugh with them. You seem to be able to do that a lot!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Laura: Oh, gosh. I think that’s all we do.

Wes: Yes, yes, yes, yes…

Laura: Like, we belly laugh. It gets to the point where people would think we were ridiculous. We’ll say things and just think it’s the funniest thing ever and people would be like, “You guys have a problem …” and we’re like, “Yeah.” (Laughs)

Laura, and then he comes back into your life years later…

Wes: That’s right, it was Emmy weekend 2017.

Laura: I totally was not expecting it at all. Even when I gave him my number I walked away going “huh…”

You mean you thought he wouldn’t call?

Laura: No, I didn’t feel that… because he hit on me hard. He’ll tell you that.

Wes: I still am hitting on her.

Laura: I remember I walked away quick after he got my number. I was like, “Oh, my God … I gotta go.”


Wes: There was an assertiveness on my part that was for sure 15 years in the making. I did not expect to run into her. I also did not expect for her to tell me that she was recently single. In that split second, it was one of those, “stop the presses!” moments. Like, you need to give me your number, I’m taking you to dinner.

Laura: I go, “Oh, be quiet! Are you like, 32, because I can’t do that.” (Laughs)

Wes: And I said, “Far from it.”

Laura: He’s like, “I’m getting ready to be 40.” And I’m like, “I can do that!”

Then, on top of all of this, Wes, you land a primo role on General Hospital. That of Henrik aka Peter, Cesar Faison’s son.

Photo Credit: Courtesy/ABC

Wes: Yes, a dream come true.

Laura: I’m going to jump in and say it’s a role that he worked all on his own for. He had to screen test against 8 plus guys, 3 different auditions, 2 different days.

Wes: That’s true.

Laura: I can’t say strong enough that the best actor got the role. Meaning, Wesley is so talented and has the ability to give this character the depth, and emotion, and layers that it needs to tell the story that needs to be told. I just think he’s incredible.

So, did you know from the get-go who you were going to be playing?

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: I did not.

Laura: I did! (Laughs)

Wes: I’m thrilled that the writers have been giving me such incredible material to dive into.   Each month that goes by, it becomes more and more complex, and more and more layered and intense. I love the depth… I love the conflicts… I love the humanity… I love the desperation… I love the psychology behind it. It’s a very interesting story and a great journey to tell.

Laura: I was getting ready to say, where you mentally have to go to be the son of Faison and Anna Devane (Finola Hughes)! To blend that together is amazing. It’s incredible to watch.

You used to run lines together on Guiding Light. Do you run lines together now on GH? It’s like a full circle moment.

Laura: We do, and we carpool.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Wes: Something we were trying to manifest together. We thought it would be a lot of fun to work together one day.

Laura: The last week we worked, we didn’t. He worked all afternoon. I worked all morning. I was like, “Are they doing this on purpose?” I was so mad! I was like, “Why are you in the afternoon everyday?” (Laughs)

Wes: She lost her chauffeur. (Laughs)

Laura: I did! He always drives us to work. I also love when we both have afternoon calls, because we love having mornings together. So, I didn’t get my morning, nor did I have my chauffeur!

So, two actors can have a good relationship? You see so many Hollywood relationships with actors and they go bust. But that’s not always the case …

Wes: Oh, my God, yes.

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Laura: I’m going to say this; I think I can see it being more difficult for daytime

actors, because the work we do is so intense. I know the weeks he’s getting ready to go into, and I’m getting ready to go into. Where we go emotionally and psychologically to tell these stories, on the level that we tell them, as quick as we tell them, you kind of have to become really in a headspace. The fact that we can …

Wes: … the long hours …

Laura: Yes, and exhaustion! You really have to go, “Wow! It’s not about me right now. It’s about us individually as actors.” Thank God, we know the workload. I know what he’s getting ready to go through.

Wes: I have always had so much respect for Laura’s work. On Guiding Light, I’ve always been in awe of what she’s capable of doing. So, the level of respect is obviously there. But also, the understanding whatever it is that you need from a personal assistant in one moment… or a life partner in another moment … or a best friend in moment … or whatever it is in order to get through the day-to-day and the week-to-week, so we can do what we love to do. We know we’re very lucky to have the opportunity to do what we love.

Laura was such a great co-host on my Soap Nation Live! Daytime Emmy Nomination Specials, in particular when she talks about acting. It’s so rewarding to hear the other actors who are guests on the show listening to what Laura has to say about her craft and respecting the hell out of her.

Wes: Without a doubt. You can’t watch her work and not be in awe. It speaks for itself.

Laura: I just love the journey of going to the places that we go; to bleed for it.

Wes: Leave it all out on the floor.

Laura: I know that process. So, when I see another actor that’s bleeding, I just bow to them, because I know what it takes to go there. I know the work that Wesley does. When I see that he’s spent at the end of the day, I’m like, “Babe, I so get it.” So, I can see where it could be really difficult for people that haven’t been there, because it’s a lot of work and you’re spent. It’s hard! For us, that works.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2018 Conclusion: Anna Learns Henrik Is Her Son, Maxie Has Her Son, Ava Wows, Mike & Sonny Duet!

In the most moving and exciting episode of this 2018 GH Nurses’ Ball, all roads lead to the truth about Henrik and how he is really living his life as none other than Peter August (Wes Ramsey).  First, Robert (Tristan Rogers) who has punched out by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) on stage drags him outside of the ballroom for his part in the cover[up.  Robert is worried about Anna’s (Finola Hughes) safety. Nina (Michelle Stafford) confronts her husband about how long he’s known who Henrik is.  She later figures out why he has been trying to whisk her and Charlotte out of the country.


Onstage Mike (Max Gail) takes a mic, and makes a moment of saying he has Alzheimer’s and then launches into the song he remembers,“The Summer Wind.” As he sings, he imagines being accompanied by a big band as he proceeds to deliver a showstopper.  Suddenly, in reality, Mike is lost and disoriented … scared he stares around at the audience.  Sonny (Maurice Benard) gets up to the stage to help his dad by cluing him into the lyrics.  Sonny sings with Mike and gets him through the song.  They receive a standing ovation.

Ava (Maura West) who is preparing to perform her number comes across a moment between Kiki (Hayley Erin) and Griffin (Matt Cohen) backstage where they are in a hug.  Little does Ms. Jerome know that Griffin was consoling Kiki after her lewd run-in with Dr. Bensch (James DePaiva).   Then it is Maura West, who truly brings down the house for this year’s ball with her Ava’s rendition of “You Don’t Own Me.”  That tune was certainly a nod to all those that Ava feels have wronged her.  Yup! Sonny, Griffin and Kiki we think are some on her list!   Dressed in a white pant suit and accompanied by a bevy of male dancers, West knocked the interpretation of the song out of the park, to make it work for her character and the Nurses’ Ball.


Elsewhere, Maxie (Kristen Storms) has gone into labor, and Peter is right there safely delivering her baby boy. Maxie is taken by paramedics to the hospital, while Peter calls Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) at Maxie’s urging to let him know what happened.  Spinelli has just found out, through Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) that Peter is Henrick!

Anna is walking into a trap on the pier as she waits for Henrick. When he appears, he has no idea that Anna is his mother, and thinks it’s all been a set-up.  He points a gun to eliminate her once and for all, but Anna says she has something to tell him.

The Nurses’ Ball concludes with a touching finale of “Champion” featuring: Epiphany (Sonya Eddy), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Amy (Risa Dorken) and the other nurses.

So, what did you think of the final episode of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2018?  What did you think of the musical performances? Do you think Maxie’s baby will be OK? Will Anna be able to tell Henrik that she is his mom? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

He expressed: “Welcome to the world, little one …. it’s a scary place sometimes, and i so wish i could have been there to show you all the good stuff. Your mother loves you,and will take care of you and teach you …. watch out for her her for me will ya?”

Aaawww.  So many GH fans have been touched by the gesture, and how nice it is that it makes the whole journey and end of Nathan’s West story heartbreaking and bittersweet.
