Kimberly McCullough and Brooklyn Rae Silzer Make A Return To GH!

Courtesy/ABC

Looky who was back on the set of General Hospital!

According to a tweet with a photo from executive producer, Frank Valentini, fan favorites Kimberly McCullough (Robin) and Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) were back on set filming new episodes.  Could it be that Emma and Robin are back for the annual Nurses’ Ball?

Valentini tweeted, “Late night shenanigans with these two beauties. #GH #Wrappizza

Hopefully this means that Brooklyn will be performing in a new production number and Kimberly will be making a moving speech for the annual Port Charles gala.

So, glad to hear there will be some Robin and Emma on the way?  No dates yet as to when they will air, but we would expect its sometime in May.

Come on back–anytime! Always lovely to see them both.

Lee (Phyllis)

Wish they would stay on GH both are great assets. Love ❤️

Max Daddee

Indeed great to see them both, but they’re just part of the spinning revolving doors at GH, unfortunately. Hilary B. Smith came on the show, many of us hoping he’d be the new D.A. She played Valentin’s attorney for several days and that was it.

Now Jax it back, but he’s heading out the door again, too. Rather than having some talent and great characters roles like these two could play, ABC is paying the girl from Turkey and Amy the gossipy nurse and…. Good grief. Disappointing.

I look forward to seeing these two beauties. I am sad to lose Jane Elliott, but I am happy her exit story is moving along. I feel that the network serials (all 4) need to speed up their story telling to compete with steaming services I love that I can find so many favorite old shows to stream. I only watch GH and if story drags I can and do not watch for two weeks at times. I read the synopsis and decide what I want to watch.

Wouldn’t it be great if they would stream our serials episodes from years past. Someone run with this idea.

robbie

Great post. Would love to stream Port Charles, in particular. The book-format would make it the best candidate to stream

Mister Media

This is good news BUT…GH has been nearly unwatchable lately. I love GH; GH is my soap and I have watched for decades. They have the best cast in daytime. However the current writing team may be the worst in the history of the show. Poor Jane Elliot’s exit story as Tracy is a contrived abomination. The usual reliable casting director has bombed big time with the actress playing the Turkish woman. I have never seen such an abysmal performance on a soap. Practically all stories are re-written on the fly when major inconsistencies are revealed. Follow through on story arcs is willy-nilly. A lot of dialogue is just plain awful. Any time you write a scene where a major talent like Michael Easton talks to a lizard you should be embarrassed. So many painful non-stories are being dragged out that it is a trial to watch and endure. I tune in every day to see these amazing actors and also out of loyalty and habit. Mostly I do not enjoy what I am seeing. Again, I say all this because I am a major fan of the show and want it to thrive and continue into the future. Please somebody, step in and fix this mess!

Kevin O.

Yeah, I basically agree. I have watched “GH” off and on since 1980. This current batch of writers just don’t have what it takes. Although there are some good individual moments here and there, overall the show is boring.

Fanny

Completely agree Mister Media…. THE WRITING IS ATROCIOUS ‼️‼️‼️

robbie

From your lips….

dmr

Jane’s exit story is awful, unbearable to watch and I am sorry, the Turkish woman creeps me out. I can’t watch it! I don’t care about the woman, her child, etc. I care about the Quartermaine’s. The Q’s could banter and squabble for the next month, all during Jane’s exit, and I would enjoy that, welcome that, instead of this atrocious story arc.

Tomas Torquemada

Saaaaameeera has uncanny resemblance to Octomom, the personality of a dead log and only whispers her lines.

I’m all for more Qs. But she’s a Firm No.

Shay

“Contrived abomination ” pretty much says it all, Mister Media!!!! And that goes far beyond just Tracy’s swansong story! Quite honestly, watching Michael Easton’s Finn romancing his “service lizard” would be more exciting than most of the hum-drum happenings occurring in Port Charles these days….particularly the arrival of that not-so “Turkish Delight,” Samira, or as I prefer to call her, “Sabs the Second!”

Timmm

I figured they would be back for the NB. If Kim wanted to return full time they should just recast Patrick. JT will NEVER leave Y&R for GH!

dmr

I love Jason Thompson on Y&R, major on-screen chemistry with Gina Tognoni (Phyllis). I only watch the show in anticipation of their scenes, and Eileen Davidson (Ashley).

Timmm

Jason is fitting in well there. Not a fan of him and Phyllis, though.

Jenny

Always welcome. Robin is the de facto heart and soul of the show.

Rodd

Always happy to have them back on the scene!

James R. Poissant

This return has to be for the Ball. I have always loved watching that in the years they did it. All the performances are always so good and it brings a change of pace to the show which I also like. Looking forward to this year to see what Lucy puts together!!!

robbie

Agreed, any excuse for more Lucy Coe!

Charday

Too bad Patrick’s not with ’em.

k/kay

He is in Genoa City romancing Kelly Cramer from Llanview! Lol

Kathy

Been watching GH for years and I live the show. But I’ve been really disappointed lately. The Nelle kidney story was silly. Why would Jax go to Frank Benson for a kidney?? Crazy!!

Mary SF

And it still doesn’t explain why Jake was taken by Helena-or how- if they thought Jake was the donor all these years, why would Jax’s seek out Frank Benson– unless he sought him out before Jake die, yet when Jake died wouldn’t Jax’s say– hey I already got a kidney–how does Jake fit into the Jax’s buying a kidney story– the two story threads do not mesh– It would have made more sense if Jerry Jack’s was involved- that Jax’s went to him for a kidney– at least Jerry and Helena have a connection — they fake Jake’s death, kidnap him for whatever reason they still haven’t said– and substitute Nelle’s kidney for what everyone thought was Jake’s– but who were these doctors and how was this switch was made, is still unclear— as you said this story line is plain crazy

dmr

SO stupid and the whole rewrite of how Carly thought the kidney came from Jake Webber. Just SO stupid.

JK

LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING BOTH OF THEM….GH NEEDS SOME NEW BETTER TALES SO LETS USE THESE TWO….

rebecca1

I’m happy to see that GH characters are being brought back…if not permanently then at least more so than we’ve had in recent years. Jax, Bobby, Scott, Lucy, Robin, Ned, Olivia Jerome…I’d like to see them all on contract but I know that’s not going to happen. So it’s fun and welcome whenever any of these “peeps” pop up in town. It adds to the continuity and just as in life, friends and family come and go. I love “returns”. I’d STILL like to see AJ brought back…I really don’t care what lame excuse they invent. Hmph! 🙂

Shari

Love Emma-Robin not so much!

dmr

Agreed, love little Emma Drake. Brooklyn could teach a few of the adult actors a few tricks of the trade; she’s got more talent than some of the adults on the show.

k/kay

Watching a movie with Tyler Christopher /Nick I absolutely loathe what they have done to long time veterans not interested in this show do not care if our network ever picks abc up again ! FV treats the oldies like crap but we get non stop air time from his buddies who over act on every turn

Abruzzfan

Can’t wait to see them!

clb

Glad to hear that they are returning. I think everyone needs to lay off on the criticism of the writers. Great actors cannot just look at the screen and get nominated or even win an Emmy without the words of the writing team. And GH continues to dominate the top Emmy nominations with wins in the past few years. My Emmy picks:
Best Drama: B&B (will win) or GH (should win)
Best Actor: Senior Steal Peter Bergman (Y&R) or Scott Clifton (B&B)
Actress: Nancy Lee Grahn or Laura Wright from GH (toss it up) – Only Gina Tognoni (Y&R) could steal it.
Supporting Actor: Chad Duel (GH)
Supporting Actress: Finola Hughes (GH)
Younger Actor: Bryan Craig (GH)
Younger Actress: Chloe Lanier or Lexi Ainsworth (GH) toss it up
Writing: B&B or GH

JMER

All we have left of GH is a few good scenes here and there so I’m sure KMc and Brooklyn will supply us with some of those. The good part is I have lots of time on my hands to do other things besides trying to figure out what the story is that they’re trying to write on this show.

Rodd

Off topic, but is Michael Fairman okay? There hasn’t been a new news post in six days. I hope he’s alright.

rebecca1

Haha…I was wondering what was going on, too! I was thinking he was concentrating on his newfound music career!

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.”

Courtesy/Instagram

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.

What do you think of Laura and Wes’ love connection? What do you think of the latest developments for GH’s Carly and Henrik? Comment below.

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.
