The buzz over the last 24 hours for GH fans has been over reports that Ryan Carnes is back on set this week at General Hospital reprising his role of Lucas Jones.

In fact,  GH posted a photo with Carnes, and his on-screen mom, Jackie Zeman (Bobbie).   Look for Ryan to be on-air sometime in February.

The last time viewers had a sighting of Lucas was back in the summer of 2017 when his father, Julian (William deVry) was put behind bars.

As to what is the status to the couple known as “Brucas”, and Parry Shen’s character of Brad, no word on that.   Carnes had been on recurring status with the ABC daytime drama series.

Meanwhile, Carnes’ new film, La Boda De Valentina will hit movie theatres in the US and Mexico on February 9th.

So, what do you think brings Lucas back in story?  Let us know. But first, after the jump, watch the trailer featuring Ryan in the upcoming film release of La Boda De Valentina.

Welcome back Lucas Jones!

It’s ridiculous that this show would rather hire newbie doctors than give airtime to a GH legacy character (by means of his adoptive family more than his bio dad, obviously)

Marrying Lucas to Brad was probably a mistake, in retrospect, because Brad was always written as a ridiculous throwaway character, and when they finally did throw him away, for the most part, they dumped Lucas with him, just because he was Brad’s husband. I really could care less if Brad stays gone, but let’s see a little love for the son of Bobbie Spencer & Tony Jones, for Hell’s sake!


I’d love to see Ryan in a romantic comedy. Not exactly what I pictured him doing, but he’s got my attention!

As far as GH, I’m glad the cast have other projects, because I love watching them. The show has just become intolerable to watch and I don’t like to suffer–so good for Ryan and me.


Super thrilled to have him back! Hope it’s not just for a day so he can tell us how mad Lucas is that Julian is out of jail. Rather want to see the rest of his an Brad’s story. They mentioned they were adopting. They tempted us with Britt being back on the scene. Why, oh, why can’t we have our Lucas and Brad back getting into trouble with Britt and Felix and Epiphany when it was fun to watch and had hospital characters we cared about???? Please Soap Gods, if you’re listening, bring them back for a good story and not just the Nurses Ball ~ though I’ll take what I can get.


The absence of Brad in Britt’s all-too-brief re-emergence in Port Charles was particularly egregious! Her BFF would have definitely hightailed it down to the pokey to visit her if only for a sumptuous snark session….they both had so much catching up to do since her last hasty departure! Even if these two had only shared a single scene together, it would have meant a lot to “The Britch’s” fans who found the eventually genuine friendship with her former lab lackey to be one of the best things about both of these characters!


Totally agree. Would have loved to have seen that. It’s not too late, is it? Where exactly is Britt; I don’t recall?


Those two are classic, Shaybelle….and, Ryan Carnes is HOT, n’est-ce-pas?
I should hold my tongue, though, before RODD decides to excoriate me by “putting me in my place”…..not allowed to give an opinion, as far as he’s concerned.
I just wonder, if we will ever see Britt or Brad again. They shone such a legere light on all that is GH—engaging personally, and professionally, in a hospital setting, as it should be—some of the flavor is gone.


Shay, amica cara, do not get taken in. I question everything and everyone. There is a word in Italian that transcends every translation….English, French, German. “Scaltra”(fm), which goes beyond ‘sly’….I am learning, LOL to use my sharper wits, LOL. I am not easily fooled on these sites as I used to be.
Anyway, I have never seen the attraction between Lucas and Brad. I know Parry is not gay…and it shows. His portrayal is not authentic, as Lucas’ ( do not know if he’s gay). The couple is mismatched.
I think we need more gays on the show. Brad is “gone” as are Lexie and Parker. No balance.
I know you don’t watch Days, but Sonny Kiriakis ( not gay in real life) plays a gay person, and does it impeccably.
I would welcome Brad with open arms…but, he and Lucas need to divorce. LOL….calls for the introduction of a perfect mate for Lucas; not in the form of Brad.


@CeeCee…….Well, if the GH showrunners bother to notice the positive responses Britt receives whenever she makes one of her abbreviated appearances in Port Charles, then she should soon be back with a vengeance! And with the NB once again just around the corner, what would be a better time for her to get an early release from jail in order for she and her buddy Brad to “Dish the light fantastic” over all the details of this annual event?


“oh, Shay” I would LOVE…. L – O – V – E LOVE my darling Britta to make a mere second appearance… for the love lorn…… me in peticular… a lady love dance royale

Britta is a full fledged Nathan 100 % belong being stud muffin get piece his first

like the live appareance.. want the real thing on tv


Ahhhh, Shay…you’re too good-hearted and ‘misdiagnosed’ my cryptic comment. ….not talking about characters on our soaps…..talking about ‘characters’ on these sites.
What is soooo obvious to me, is not so transparent to you, bella cara.
Beware with whom you engage in conversation…..the very person who came out of the blue, a few weeks ago, only to drag me through the mud, for no apparent reason, but using the same language as another. I may be younger than most here, but I am not stupid.
Later, amica.

James R. Poissant

You said the same exact thing I was thinking. Bravo!!!

Violet Lemm

Sorry, Rodd, but as much as I like Lucas, I can’t stand the thought of him getting back together, with that little worm, Brad. Bad enough the stuff he got into helping Britch with her scheme, but messing up Finn, and blackmailing him, was enough for me. Hope to never see his miserable face again, around GH, with or without Lucas.


I understand where you’re coming from. I just miss the old dastardly but funny Brad and his exploits with Britt. I wish the former writing regime hadn’t made him so dark the last go around.


Hi Violet…if I remember correctly we were led to believe it was Brad who changed Finn’s results but it was Dr. O? I can kind of understand why Brad was so bitter; he DID help Finn develop the cure and then Finn just cut him out of the loop moneywise. And thoug Finn donated the proceeds to save the hospital which was amazingly magnanimous he did harshly exlude Brad. That would infuriate anyone…the injustice, ingratitude.

Now, honestly…I could be remembering this wrong. It’s what I THINK happened…if so…while Brad was “not playing nice” he did, on the other hand, help Finn when it mattered most.

Joe Wells

What you said! 😀


My most heartfelt apologies….I mean that sincerely, for getting you confused with Reed. Please, I beg you to forgive me. As soon as I realized my mistake, I took to my ipad to say how sorry I am.
Take care.


No harm. Mistakes happen. Have a great day!


Thank you, Rodd. You personify the true definition of what makes a gentleman. God bless!!


I almost forgot about him…


Looking forward to Lucas back on screen!Maybe the writers could have some interaction with Carly and knock some sense into her for being so obnoxious in the whole Drew and Jason saga!Her treatment of Drew was so bad and hard to watch!Love me some Bobbie thou and on that note
more Laura and Kevin!!!!!


Carly’s obnoxious to too many to count. I’d like to see someone knock her out as opposed to having sense knocked into her. LOL…my most hated character. (And not someone I love to hate…just can’t stand her.)

Violet Lemm

Rebecca 1, I guess we should just agree to dissagree about Brad, as I can’t seem to see the good in the character, but I like the actor. I do thoroughly agree with you about Carly, can’t stand that woman!


Hi Violet…I was sort of playing devil’s advocate; I, too, was annoyed with Brad this last go round. I do feel it’s a shame that they had him regress a bit in the sense that he was so adversarial and underhanded with Finn. I DID think he was great with Britt as “besties”…the scenes quite a while back with the two of them eating ice cream and watching the Nurses Ball on TV were so fun (in my opinion). And, I like how he became a better person when he dated/married Lucas.

So, in essence, I didn’t like him this last go-round but in the character’s defense, as I mentioned, he helped Finn find the cure; he came through without ulterior motive…just to help save a life. So, I guess I cut him some slack.

Carly? know how I feel. And when I see her mothering Avery I feel pure disdain.

LOL…amazing how fictional characters can get on our last nerve! 😉


Why are you bothering a chance with a legacy character to tell a great story and you blew it


K/kay….I wanted to privately say good-bye to you, re the GH threads….I will see you “at” Y&R…love you.


It’s hard to believe that we’re looking back at Felix/Britt/Brad et al as the good old days already. 🙂 I thought it was a fun era but everyone dumped on it so much, especially whatshername, the fairy princess girl that took Robin’s place and then just couldn’t catch a break… everyone hated her online to the point where it was a little weird. Anyway, that actually was a decent time of the soap in that we had drama actually in the hospital on a show called General Hospital.
Happy that Lucas is back in whatever form – It was amazing, especially as a gay man, that this show at one point had three regular gay male characters. That’s got to be a first. In any event, I wish they’d find more for Lucas to do but am glad that he’s ‘around’ even if we don’t see him.


Jacob…I certainly never dumped on the Britt and Brad connection…they were golden! Comedy at its best! Now I do recall that when he first came on the GH scene, I found Brad’s predatory act a bit creepy, but once he dispensed with that, I considered his labtime chicanery quite amusing! It’s just a shame that his character’s promising backstory was brushed aside for less interesting, more contrived plotlines of the time like Sab’s whole Ugly Betty/Disney fantasy, which, yes, I fully admit to absolutely abhoring…and I’m glad to know I was not alone according to your post!!! (Her goody-two-shoes Cinderella character was also responsible for the ruination of Felix as a viable standalone player, since he was constantly tethered to her silly, saccharine melodrama….) At any rate, I hope Brad makes a comeback with Lucas and that we shall eventually see him reunited with his BFF Britt, too!


Glad he is back, hope he forgets his shirt.


LOL! Yep.


@Rodd…..Isn’t Britt in the slammer, aka, “paying her debt to society????” (In other words, “cold storage” until the writers decide to trot her out again….which we hope shall be sooner rather than later!)

Kevin O.

I love the Lucas character, but dislike Brad. Pair Lucas either with Felix or a new character. But I would like a gay character on the canvas.


Interesting thought. What if Peter was gay? I think the Lucas and Felix ship has sailed, though.


@Rodd…I do believe that Lulu and Peter are headed for a tete a tete, but perhaps he will prove to be “flexible” when it comes to his romantic choices, which could prove interesting for the future. Of course, we are uncertain as to the duration of this character’s stay in Port Charles…is he simply yet another “temporary” villain, or will he earn a more permanent spot on the GH canvas?


Love Lucas, don’t really care about Brad.
Where the heck is Felix – I miss him ….such a great character.
As to why TPTB are bringing Lucas back – I’m sure it will have something to do with Julian.

Andrew Hass

If i remember correctly Bobbie a couple of months mentioned that Lucas and Brad were trying to adopt.So maybe when we see Lucas again we get an update on that.


Maybe Joss gets pregnant and Lucas adopts her baby?


The movie looks like it’s gonna be a great vehicle for Ryan. Hope it does really well and his star shines even brighter for more of the world to see and appreciate.


Everyone gets excited about Lucas. Why not bring him on and ice Nathan, Lulu, Dante, Peter and Helle? And the gay thing, why even go there full time? Okay, Lucas is gay, so what, write a good story he can sink his teeth into and then have him sit in Charlies Pub and complained to Julian that there are not enough single men in PC! Make it secondary until its not. Being gay is no longer and OMG TV moment!


I would like GH to focus on legacy characters and those characters with ties to such. In last decade though, it seems the ties have been made to give us a momentary thrill, with no real concern for history, back story, or future. they push believability even more than the stretch we allow in this storytelling genre. I have watched soaps most of my life and I understand soap family trees are like weedy thick underbrush more than a stately oak.

Carnes’s Lucas may come back after a marriage fail, thus keeping Brad in the annals of GH history. What a lovely story for him to find his way home, re-establish ties with his mother (Jackie Zeman is so underused!) and be involved in something special, a mystery, a new romance, an initiative that brings the cast together for some major event.


I like the way you think, Iakovos. I did say, Lucas would be better served with someone else, other than Brad.
Don’t get me wrong, I truly like Brad…just not with Lucas.

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.

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.
