GENERAL HOSPITAL: Finn Tells Hayden He's Dying!

Courtesy/GH

Courtesy/GH

It looks like some clarity, but with still many unanswered questions, has come to GH audiences on just what is going on with Dr. Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton).

On Tuesday’s episode, Finn admits to Hayden (Rebecca Budig) that he is dying!  At first, she questions him about it, and he comes forth with: “I was traveling, and I contracted a rare disease.  You don’t know the name of it, and there’s no cure.  But I discovered a way to moderate the progress of the illness.”

When Hayden questions Finn if that is what is going on with the syringe and the vial of unknown medication, he admits to her that it’s a drug protocal that is keeping him stable, but it’s becoming less and less effective, and at some point, it just won’t work at all.   He also clarifies that it is not a contagious disease that he suffers from.

Hayden has gone to the GH locker room to retrieve Finn’s research notebook for him.  Later, he tells her he wants to do good work and help people.  Hayden seemingly feels badly for Finn, because her father had bankrupted the medical foundation Finn was working on to do just that.

However, Hayden pries even further and tries to get Finn to admit that his wife also died as of a result of this same illness. Finn shoots her a look, and does not confirm. or deny it.

So, what do you think of the revelation that Finn is dying? Do you think Hayden and Finn will become a romantic duo in the very near future? What do you think happened to Finn’s late wife? Share your theories in the comment section below.

who cares?

Ghlover

Umm I do! I actually luke the chemistry here and im liking where this is headed… Now if only the real Nicholas could come back ASAP, things can get gooood

Rebecca1

I care too. I love Michael Easton and I think he’s doing a great job with this quirky character. I don’t see McBain or Silas; he’s different enough that I’m able to suspend my disbelief. I hope ME is staying for the long haul so once he’s cured or stable I’d like to see his character and interactions broadened.

Celia

Well, it was one of two things, as I said from the first time we saw Finn shoot up. Either he is using himself as a ‘test’ subject for a developing drug; or he has contracted a disease on one of his medical travels.
Now, we know how his wife died. I am hoping the writers will derail this train wreck and have Finn live.
I , also, want the writers to indulge and invest in a love story between Finn and Hayden.

Ghlover

Woulnd it be grand if his ” dead wife” is actually Brenda Barret?

Celia

I had to look Brenda Barret and her GH story up, Ghlover, LOL.
After familiarizing myself with the character and her life in Port Charles, I almost chocked…LOL. Lo and Behold!!
I should have known! Another of Sonny’s wives. Caramba!!
Yeah, I guess Brenda emerging as Finn’s supposedly dead wife would be a shocker.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe his dead wife shows up and played by Melissa Archer?????????

Alex

I am so hoping for this !

Vicki

That would be grand:)))))

ariane templeton

Celia you are breaking my heart really . a romance with hadyn l hadyn not, get the pun pun hon whose the writer around here you nah, oh yeah me ,you know the blue mixed paper recycled bags well l fill those bags like there no tomorrow of course there Finn is also set to be dying for a romance, 2 out of 3 isn’t bad

Timmm

I figured he was dying and it gives Easton an out for his limited appearance. IF they decide to keep Finn, he will magically find a cure. [Maybe injecting the sweat of a Koala bear in him?] But anyway, I enjoy this character and he and Hayden seem to gel.

dmr

I’m just not a fan of Hayden-seems like she is being written into this storyline “just because” and probably because the actress is being paid a lot for the job. I think it would have made more sense for Finn to tell Carly, since they have sort of developed a friendship. I can somewhat understand why he didn’t tell the hospital or Monica, his medical practices probably would have been called into question since he’s ill and performing surgery. I’m just not overly invested in this storyline.

Anna

I am not a fan of Hayden either.

Kathryn63

YOU GOT THAT SOOOO RIGHT ANNA I TOO CANNOT STAND HAYDEN BARNES SHE IS MY LEAST FAVORITE ACTRESS CHARACTER ON GH. AND I DO NOT WANT HER PAIRED WITH ME AND I FOR ONE WILL BE COUNTING THE DAYS UNTIL THEY ARE OVER THAT MELISSA WILL BE PLAYING HER/REIKO HIS WIFE WHO IS VERRRRY MUCH ALIVE!!!!!! AND MELISSA WILL BE PLAYING HER!

Ces

Agree. I think Frank V has a crush on Rebecca Budig and wants to keep her on the show despite fans pleas that we couldn’t care less about any of her namesakes! So, if Finn dies does that mean ME comes back as another character?

Missy

Sorry nothing against RBU but Hayden needs to take a long hike.

Ghlover

I disagree. I like RB and Hayden. I think she is bringing the best out of ME. In fact, so far, Finn is better than Silas. Not better than John Mcbain but still..

ariane templeton

Calling ces yes ah no repeat what l say Hamilton Finn is by far is his favorite character he may have aids or diabetes but the awareness of what Hamilton Finn has can go to two causes as l said on the second line, are you reading as well as the magic of writing l can create Danny as Hamilton son, a single dad how many single dads are there in the world today. make quite enjoyable wouldn’t u yhink

Lisa Cotterman

Oh i think and hope they be come a romantic duo asap because there scenes are great and they would be dynamite as a couple. Now i was one that wanted Ava and Silas as a couple and i felt i was robbed on that . I am willing to get on board with HayFinn .

Letemeatc8ke

I like them better as just friends. Why can’t men and women have platonic friendships on this show?!

Ghlover

Yayy we got a name!!! #HayFinn

MissySnow

Nothing against ReBu, but the character of Hayden is a flop.

Sandra

Really don’t care for the character either. Let’s force her into storylines to make her work. Just like Nina. They are awful flops.

brian

sorry… I do like Hayden. Yes we are seeing a lot of her…but she has grown on me since the earlier days of her being on…..but yes I do want more Laura !

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

His wife is still with him-its Roxie The Lizard-lol

Celia

I knew that from the get-go, Jimmy. I think Finn will not die, as the stuff he injects himself with is slowly transforming him into a lizard. HaHa.

Ghlover

Kiki is a waist….. So is LuLu… People are complaining about Hayden but inwould take her over Lulitunes anytine!!! #freesexyDante

Celia

@Ghlover.
Lol, Gh. NuKiki grew on me; but, Lulu is a door-knob. I do not agree with the writers’s turnabout. Lulu should have stuck to her guns and gone through with the divorce. Then again, perhaps it is I who is too unforgiving. Do not cheat or find yourself hanging from the end of my wrath, holding for dear life.
What would make the world rosy and wearing a smily face is for Kiki to kick Morgan out of her heart and her orbit. Once a cheater always a cheater. He makes me want to grit my teeth.
Kiki should concentrate on Dillon…what a guy!! LOL.

ariane templeton

there you go breaking my heart Celia say hi to jimmy holt

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

He wont die unless he is coming back for his 100th character-lol…and why hasnt Kiki seen him yet and react to how much he looks like her daddy?…Lets say he was cloned by Helene and thats why there were so many lookalikes of him-lol

vinman

Please…I can’t handle that scene again…..

Justin

Sorry to be a negative voice, but who cares about these people? Long-time GH viewers aren’t going to come back for this.

Celia

Hey, Justin.
You are forgetting all about poor, ole me; and those in my position. That is, new fans of GH. I like Hayden and Finn. I will like them even more as a couple.
It is not just long-time viewers that watch this show. Peace out !

Justin

I’m glad you are a new fan! Sadly, there aren’t too many of you. The show is down 276 thousand from last week and 318 thousand viewers from a year ago. I wish there were more of you, but new characters with no ties to longevity and history drive viewers away. Sorry.

Celia

@Justin.
That is so true, Justin. This is why I always welcome actors from other soaps.
I do agree in the fact that soaps, sooooo sadly, are a dying breed/genre.

Roz

I am a long time viewer first memory watching GH with my mom in the late seventies. I like Hayden and Finn I am still watching 🙂

Rebecca1

Justin I’m a longtime viewer and I welcome new characters as long as we have a big dose of the GH “originals.” We have Monica, Ned, Tacy, Dillon, Anna Robin, Nicolas, Alexis, Laura, Scott, Bobbt, Sonny, Carly, Lulu, Maxi, Liz, Jason. I also realize we lost a lot too and would LOVE to see more of the characters I just mentioned. I love Scottie! ( what happened to Scotty and Bobby; thought they were back together), would love Ned to be on more regularly, we need Mac back…Lucy more than for the Nurses Ball. With all this, I STILL love some of the new characters…soooo glad Michael Easton is on, Roger Howarth, I like Ava, Juluan, Kiki, Griffin Munro, Dante, Nathan…and I’m looking forward to Bree Williamson.

I think it just comes down to whether an actor, character, story grabs you which is subjective like so many things.

Kat

Ditto! My thoughts exactly.

ariane templeton

Justin in time, l watch Magnetizingly handsone Luke Sencer on cassadine island in the 80s ln November l be 59 the writers are driving me nuts so l am writing my own general hospital plots

Trophy Lady

I sure hope Finn and Hayden get together!!! I just LOVE Michael Easton and Rebecca Budig, and they are both powerhouse vets!

Ideally, I’d love for Finn’s wife to still be alive, and of course, she’ll come to PC to find him. He’d be getting romantically closer to Hayden, and miraculously, his wife shows up — portrayed by RENEE ELISE GOLDSBERRY!!! Wouldn’t that be the best???!!!

What a dream it would be to have Michael Easton and Renee Elise Goldsberry back on the same soap! Those two create nothing but MAGIC together on screen!

Kristina Anderson

Yes that would be awesome

Carolyn

Michael would jump at the chance to work with Renee again. I’d settle for a temporary appearance, anything, just to see them on screen together again. Michael’s recent post on his Facebook page says it all, Renee was always his choice.

Rebecca1

Lol. I think Renee’s soap days are over. She is having, as I’m sure you know, phenomenal success in Hamilton and will probably soar even higher from there.

Carolyn

I totally agree with you , she has moved past contracted roles in a daytime soap. I’ve read Hamilton may be made into a movie version. Renee has really on her to the stars. However, I can still hold out hope that she would consider doing a short term guest appearance on GH.

Marianne

Finn is an interesting character and I am looking forward to his story. In saying that it does look like there may be a Finn and Hayden pairing along the way. Personally, I hope it’s short lived because I would love to see Michael paired with Melissa Archer again. He needs his fiery redhead and I’m not talking about Hayden!

Terri

Totally would love to see that!!!!

Kathryn63

ABSOLUTELY IT WILL BE VERRRRY SHORT-LIVED!!!!! AND I HAVE NO DOUBT JUST LIKE JESSE SAID REIKO IS ALIVE & SHE WILL BE PLAYED BY THE LOVELY MELISSA(ARCHER)!!

Demi

The story is intriguing. Not a fan of the Hayden/Rachel character. Yes, Finn’s interaction with her and their banter is ok but darn I am hoping Melissa Archer joins GH and is reunited with Michael. Sizzling chemistry always!

Celia

I know, Demi. ….love Melissa myself. But, when we can’t have the stars, we settle for the moon…..Hayden is the next best thing for me. Lol.

Stephanie

Not even close dear Celia

Rose

Celia…If I remember right, you like older films. I think it’s more like “when we can’t have the moon we at least have the stars”…great line for Bette. I remember Melissa with Michael. Just not so longing to see her paired with him again on GH like so many others. I’m more of a Rebecca girl so I’m okay with Hayden with Finn. They seem to click. One thing I haven’t liked at all about the Finn storyline is the visual ” shooting up” scenes. For anyone following the news there an epidemic of this going on right now right now with regular people, in real life. Not a great example on GH to show how. Ugh!

Celia

@Rose.
LOL, Rose.
That line, albeit I got it backwards, was circling in my head; completely oblivious I had heard it somewhere and stored it in my head. Thanks for reminding me. How could I forget the memorable Bette Davis.
Oh, yes!!!! I have been a fan of Hayden since her AMC days. And, speaking of stars, I thank them everyday, Cameron Mathison is not the one playing the role of Finn. HaHa.
I, also, agree that the “shooting up” is very disturbing. Kids are very inquisitive, impressionable and curious by nature. I know that when there is no school, my nieces, nephews and my own all gather in one place ….a couple of the girls looove soaps (my son only wants to watch Kirsten Storms, lol)…..so, I am always conscious about what they see and hear.
I suppose those scene could have been shown or ‘unshown’ in a different ‘light’. However, I think the graphic aspect makes a greater impact….the struggle he is experiencing. It is what it is….
The responsibility is always put on the parent to monitor what our children can and cannot see or handle. I always do a double-take by some of the stuff that comes out of my almost-sevev-year-old son. The only place he gets it is school. Soooo….

Letemeatc8ke

Give it time…they’ve hired everyone else. I’m sure she’s next on the list.

Vicki

Would love to see ME and MA again.

olivia

Opinions vary, I never saw chemistry between ME and MA, I found them boring and painful to watch. Not everyone who watched OLTL liked (Jolie) John and Natalie. I disliked them so much I found myself not watching the days they were on. GH needs to bring on someone who brings heat to the screen, someone who brings out the best in Michael, someone like Renee Elise Goldsberry. I hope MA never comes to GH.

Stacey

We certainly can agree to disagree. I hope Melissa does come to GH. Michael and Melissa are awesome together.

Matt

Ugh to Hayden.! If they do go the route of a pairing I hope it’s short and we get Melissa Archer brought on board. She and Michael have unfinished business. Maybe as his beloved wife or a new doc or even Sarah Webber. Bring Melissa onboard please:))))))

Celia

Sounds really good, Matt. I would love to have Melissa and Michael together. The second time around may not meet our own expectations…..there is always that risk….different storylines….different life.
As I said, Rebecca is one compelling, got-you-in-my-grip kind of actress. Believe me, when she stormed into Pine Valley….not much to like , at first. But, boy; did she reel me in!!!!! Of course, that is my take; my feeling…..but, I cannot believe I am the only one who admires this outstanding protagonist.

Ghlover

Oh no not that Mellis chick!!! Lets keep Hayden and make Finns “dead wife” Brenda Barret.

Carolyn

Michael and Melissa have no unfinished business to finish, same goes for the fictional characters of John and Natalie. OLTL is dead, the same goes for John and Natalie, they’re dead too.

Kathryn63

ABSOLUTELY MATT & MELISSA IS GOING TO BE COMING VERRRRY SOON & PLAYING REIKO HIS BELOVED WIFE JUST WAIT & SEE & I FOR ONE CANNOT WAIT!!!!

Rose

Maybe writers have mixed and matched the right characters with each other, at least for me. I like Finn and Hayden…Nicolas and Ava together. But not Franco and Nina. He’s way better with Nina, and vice versa.

The other fun thing about the Nik /Ava storyline, while I still don’t see a GH connection, it still reminds me of Felicia and Frisco’s adventure to reclaim her Aztec heirloom. Except now it’s at “Downton Abbey.” So I’ll enjoy it for what it is.

Rose

Whoops…meant don’t like a Franco / Liz combo.

Letemeatc8ke

Agree with Rose…..yechkt!!!

Jess

His wife is still alive and being held captive by Raymond Berlin . She will reappear after Hayden and Finn get together and she’ll be the lovely Melissa Archer.

Terri

Yes please make it so!

Dina

Yes ,Yes!

Patrick

OMG

all hail this declaration

great surprise twist

Sandra

Gosh yes!

Alex

I would sing the hallelujah chorus!

Ghlover

Makes sense, afyer all her OLTL sister is Claudette!! Erica Slezac can not be too far

Ghlover

It makes sense but i would prefer Brenda Barett as Finns “dead wife”

Katie

Melissa Archer all the way

Alex

Mmmmm.. Love me some Archer and Easton!

Kathryn63

I heard CM IS GOING TO BE PLAYING HAYDEN BARNES EX-HUSBAND SOOOOOO I CERTAINLY MAKES SENSE THAT MELISSA WILL BE PLAYING REIKO MA&ME REUNITED FINALLY ALONG WITH RB&CN ALTHOUGH I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE LATTER COUPLE ALL I WANT IS MY MA&ME REUNITED!!!! PERIOD!!!!!!! PLEASE FV BRING HER ON ASAP AS REIKO OR ANYONE BUT I HOPE IT IS IN FACT REIKO!!!!!

Steph

Not feeling the love for Hayden and Finn.

Missy

Ugh!

Stacey

Don’t care for them either. Something is missing. I see them as friends

vinman

Don’t care…..dumb s/l…and TOTALLY OVER HATECHEL&DR.FINNISHALREADY….

Mike

I do not care for Hayden character and certainly not with Finn. Would much rather have Michael’s character paired with Melissa Archer. Fans have been waiting since 2012 for this.

Katie

Amen!

Alex

Oh heck yes to that!

Nancy

Seriously Michael, not fond of Hayden and not looking forward to a pairing. Something about this character doesn’t sit well with me.

ariane templeton

well take a walk on a wild side smell the flowers

Kathryn63

HAYDEN KNOWS REIKO IS ALIVE!!!!

su0000

WTH !
for keristsakes! what is wrong with the seniel minds of J&S making Finn dying, my dog could write better than those to ol bitties.
I want a strong dark character not one on a respirator..

GH is becoming horribly horrible!
I watch by FF..

FIRE THE QUEENS OF SNOOZE !!
GH needs youngblood writers !!

su0000

General Hospital has always been a Strong soap – color hot red.
Now General Hospital is a Weak soap- color pale pink

I fear for the future of GH under the Queens of Snooze and hope soon they will be replaced.
(preferably by Stephen King)

ariane templeton

oh god let it be me l do wonders for the common cold

Becca

Finn may be dying but somehow they’ll find a cure. The story is great and I am loving his relationship, whatever it may be, with Hayden. I really hope they continue to give more background and depth to her character because if the story is good then Michael Easton and Rebecca Budig could knock a romance out the park! Here’s to Finn & Hayden and more of the story. MUCH MORE!

Celia

You go, girl !!!!! I soooo agree with you, Becca. CHEERS!!

Abruzzfan

I also agree – here’s to more of Hayden & Finn!

ariane templeton

how about a picnic in the park my all time favorite park is beacon hill

Jenn

Please, please bring Melissa Archer on as Finn’s not so dead wife. What a wonderful way to reunite these two wonderful actors.

Stacey

Yes Jenn, after all these years would love to see Michael and Melissa together again. Have to admit, not a fan of Hayden.

Jamie

I would as well. I have missed Michael and Melissa onscreen together.

Alex

Yes indeed it would as well. They and their chemistry are certainly missed.

Katie

Agreed. I miss them as well. Would love to see them again.

Vicki

As would I. Love them

Kathryn63

TO CONT. PHENOMENAL OFF-THE-CHARTS CHEMISTRY THAT MOST DEFINITELY NEEDS TO & HAS TO BE WITNESSED ON DAYTIME TV AGAIN & THAT SOAP IA.

MissySnow

ME could have been cast as Dr. Steven Lars Webber prison parolee who picked up a drug habit that he’s trying to shake and been connected to Elizabeth, Audrey, Cam, Jake, Aiden, and the rest of the Hardy/Webber family. Bree Williamson could have come on as Dr. Sarah Webber with her and Lucky’s son from their affair back in 2002.

I will never understand why it is fans come come up with connections to the show’s 53 year history and the writers build newbies that we FF every single time!

Kevin

Excellent points! Still, I’m enjoying the show regardless. But the connections — that would only have made it better.

MissySnow

How much better would the show be if RoHo, ME, Matt Cohen, Bree Williamson, etc… were playing beloved legacy characters? The 3 OLTL actors could have been Sarah and Steven Lars Webber and Tom Hardy and then we could see Tommy Hardy Jr. medical intern and Sarah’s son with Lucky as a petulant teen working as a candy striper at the hospital!

Justin

Oh, that would be a fantastic storyline, and I too thought that ME could’ve been Steven Lars Webber. And an excellent question, why do we fans have to come up with ties to the history.

MissySnow

I think it is way TOO easy for the show to create new characters where they can come up with any old backstory, instead of doing their homework and researching beloved characters that we desperately need for the next generation of Hardy/Webber, Q’s, Baldwin’s, Ward’s, etc…

Look at Valerie a Spencer who barely interacts with Lucas, Carly, Michael, Morgan, Josselyn, Aiden, etc! Come, on! Why isn’t Valerie a nurse at GH after taking care of her dead mother for years and having her interact with Elizabeth, :Piph, Felix, Lucas (her cousin!), etc.

Ghlover

New charcaters = new royalties for the writer that creates them….

Kathryn63

AND THAT SOAP IS GH & ALSO THAT IS TRUE WRITERS GET ROYALTIES WHEN THEY CREATE NEW CHARACTERS WHICH IS WHY REIKO IS GOING TO BE COMING SOONER RATHER THAN LATER & MELISSA WILL BE PLAYING HER/REIKO!!!

Mary

Why does Hayden care so much if Finn’s wife died of the same disease? I was hoping that Finn would turn out to be the Valentine? Cassadine that Helena was so afraid of.

Missy

I questioned that as well. Why didn’t he confirm or deny when asked?

Celia

It is still possible, Mary. Perhaps Finn is the evil Cassadine Dr. O inferred as Nathan’s father.
What if Finn, knowing his core-evil-essence wants to change? What if he is injecting himself with a “Do-good” drug? Far-fetched fantasy, that. LOL.
Yet, we were dragged to the torture chamber in Fluke’s dungeon and put on the stretch-rack….not to mention the fantastical life of Faison and his colorful array of masks.
Wouldn’t be so much of a stretch—mo pun.

Mary SF

Really this is the best they can do? A mysterious disease that do one has heard of contracted on his many travels– give me a break. Honestly if they brought back ME only to kill him off again that would be a real waste and slap in the face to all his fans. If this disease is just a way to explain his shooting up, his being a drug addict would have been a better and more compelling story. If they aren’t going to kill him off, then obviously he will be cured– no doubt by Super Priest Doctor Griffith, who will figure it out.

Oh well if Ron was writng this Finn would be shooting up Bearded Dagon blood in order to get super powers or some weird Dr. Jeyll and Mr Hyde storyline–not sure which way is worse–LOL

Celia

It does sound unreal, Mary SF. But, if Finn travelled far and wide to godforsaken, indigenous lands where fetid water is drunk, or disease infested food is eaten, is VERY possible to develop an incurable, viral disease. I would think the natives developed an immunity.
I mentioned this instantly….as soon as Finn shot up. As a missionary and from the western world, his body and constitution were not robust, or used to that atmosphere, if you will. So, he fell prey.
If that is the case, as a doctor he should have armed himself with all kinds of preventative drugs…against malaria, leprosy etc.
Another blunder by the PTB.

Mary SF

Well if they were going down that route, they could at least pick a real disease- do some research, of what kind of diseases are out there that the good doctor had a chance to get. But a mysterious disease, that doesn’t really exist, just to fake the drama of his dying, only to “cured” later– is just one step above Ron C way out there stories with vampires and the like— I have no issue with him being sick or catching it on some travels of his, it is this whole unwillingness to give the disease a name– at least Tracy’s worms in the brain can really happen– so if this a real disease out there Name it– if it doesn’t exist it is just a lazy plot point

Celia

@Mary SF.
Touché, Mary. I see what you’re saying. I misread. Of course, we want a name for the disease. There are plenty. Perhaps, as usual, ‘they’ throw stuff out there and expect us to accept it….my same old litany, Mary.

Stephanie

No Hayden , no way.

Allen saint james

Characters on soaps these days jump from love interest to love interest so much that it’s hard for me to invest.

Katia

Finn will be cured I am certain. He and Hayden will probably be paired. I truly hope it is not for a long time and that Melissa Archer comes on to GH to be paired with him again. Love those two.

Jess

Hell yes MA and ME can bring the heat.

Carolyn

Hell yes, the two would set the show on fire, as in destroy it. No thank you I have no interest in seeing those two together ever again. I’d like someone to come on board that would help GH , no hurt it. Someone Michael had red hot chemistry with on OLTL, Renee Goldsberry would be a great choice.

Katie

Yes they certainly can. Michael and Melissa were fantastic paired together. Come on Frank it is time!

JK

MANY VARIED OPINIONS…FINN AND HAYDEN WOULD SURE BEAT THIS STUPID NEW STORY LINE WITH AVA!!!!

Timmm

I would give the Ava story a little time. Its good to see her away from Sonny and Julian!

Patrick

I wonder…. if you are saying this… because of the recast for Tyler Christopher and throwing in how suspect the writing

argh!

I noticed a different vibe immediately… with the recast of Nicholas

there wasn’t that cohesive knit

that Tyler Christopher and Maura West had… add in Trent Dawson

that’s where the magic started and got lopped off in just the 2nd day

I should add.. it’s not like the recast Nicholas did a bad job… but the chemistry got lost

Sandra

I prefer they bring someone on like Melissa Archer for Michael.

Kathryn63

ABSOLUTELY & SHE WILL BE PLAYING REIKO!

Roz

Prospect Park lawsuit will make it hard for MA to be paired with Easton just the hint of putting them together will make them say GH is trying to capitalize off of John and Natalie. I am not just saying this because I never liked the Jolie pairing. Prospect park has and will make it hard for GH to use actors from OLTL or AMC until that lawsuit is resolved . This also goes for Renee Elise Goldsbery who played Evangeline (I am a Jovan fan ) they would have the same issue with her if paired with Easton. Besides with Renee I doubt she would be interested in coming to GH she just won a Tony award. For example Bree Williamson is coming she is a easy fit because she was never paired with Easton or Howarth character. TAs long as Claudette is not related to Franco like Jessica who was Todd’s niece they are okay. Until the Prospect Park mess is resolved I doubt MA will end up on GH anytime soon.

Trophy Lady

I’m not really sure about your theory. Even after they couldn’t use the OLTL characters anymore, GH still had RoHo and KA (now as Franco and Kiki) routinely interacting. It made absolutely ZERO sense why Kiki would still be interacting with Franco after it was revealed that Silas was her dad, but they did so because everyone loved Starr and Todd. PP owns the characters, not the actors portraying the characters.

Honestly, if Valentini and The Gang wanted to bring on Renee Elise Goldsberry, they’d fight like hell to get her. They at least owe her that much after they killed Evangeline off for no reason! And, yes, I know she won a Tony, but she’s an actress. She wants to work. And, if they really wanted her, they’d offer her a sweet deal — something where she could do GH, and still be able to do Broadway, too. It’s totally doable, if they’d be willing to work with her.

Roz

I did not like what happened to Evangeline still angry about that. Renee lives in NYC with her husband and kids. If she came to GH It would proably be short term I would love to see even it if is for a few weeks 🙂

Carolyn

I’d take Renee and Michael together for a short term storyline. Renee is contracted to do Hamilton thru July, I don’t know if her contract has been extended. I have no doubt that Renee would be Michael’s first choice.

olivia

Michael was never the same after they separated John from Evangeline. I do believe Renee was his true acting partner, and acting marriage made in heaven. It’s clear he thinks the world of her and admires her talent and accomplishments all one has to do is read his facebook page.

Timmm

I hope ALL of you get what you want! I want Michael Muhney casted as Valentin Cassadine! He would be fabulous opposite of Helena who we just know isnt dead!

Roz

Timm that would be great.

Brett

I am so done with the crap Jelly are writing. Are we supposed to care that this newbie is dying? If he does (which we know he won’t) perhaps they can bring Michael Easton on to play a 6th Port Charles character, an interesting one this time please….

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!

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
