43rd Daytime Emmys: Watch Outstanding Younger Actor In a Drama Series Nominated Performances!

The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys will be held on Sunday May 1st, but today NATAS (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) has begun posting the reels of the nominated work of the actors in the daytime drama categories.

First up is the battle in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series category which features several stellar performances. Nominated are: Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos) General Hospital, Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) The Young and the Restless, Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine) General Hospital, Tequan Richmond (TJ Ashford) General Hospital, and Pierson Fode’ (Thomas Forrester) The Bold and the Beautiful.

This year, whichever young man takes home the gold it will be their very first Daytime Emmy win!  So will it be: Craig’s performance as a bipolar Morgan as he calls himself a loser compared to his brother Michael?  Ehrich’s cornered and accussed Fen in the Cabin/Scooby-Doo murders?

Bechtel as the scene stealing son of Nikolas Cassadine, who’s 10th birthday celebration is filled with heartbreak? Richmond in his heart-tugging performance saying goodbye to Shawn as he carted off to prison? Or Fode’ in Thomas’ showdown with his father Ridge, in which he punches good ole’ dad in the face after being baited?

Watch the nominated reels and performances after the jump, and then let us know who you think should win come Emmy night in the comment section below!

Can anyone explain this stupidness to me ?

Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos) General Hospital; in the Younger Actor category.

He is far from young, he is grown man (in every way..

Bryan is 24 ..
Old enough to have a master’s degree/Doctor, Attorney, Congressman, he is not a child, and not a ”young actor” , he is an Actor .
How embarrassing for him..

They should cap that category at age 18 ..

25 is the cut off year

Historically, that category has been capped at 28, with a little leeway. Why should he be embarrassed to be recognized for a body of work in a legitimate category? He could not compete in the higher categories because he wouldn’t stand a chance. He is in exactly the right category, and if after age 28, he continues to mature as an actor, then he can move into the bigger categories.

You go su!!!! Even under 18, which is old enough to vote and conceive a child.

@Dylan. No, Craig should not be embarrassed. I mean, the categorization is neither his fault nor his doing. I am blaming whoever is responsible for devising the strange lumping of babies with adults. I just realized Kelly Thiebaud is about four years older than I. If she were still playing the role of Britt, would she also be a younger contender for the Emmy? As I said, the cut-off point should be less than eighteen . Then again, what do I know? Well, I know that anyone over 18 is an adult. How does one compare the performance of a… Read more »

yah but c’mon.. at age 24 any man would cringe at being referred to as ‘a young one” ..
24yr old Marines/military are no longer young ones, they are men and killing machines..
That goes for all at age 24; embarrassed to be noted as young, expecially when holding a Masters ..
I think they should make the young category end at 18..

I’m partial to Pierson Fode’s scenes on B&B. I think he’s done a great job in a short amount of time, plus he’s been given some heavy duty material. I hope he wins.

Believe me when I say, I am shocked to say it but Bryan Craig gets my vote. If ever anyone ever showed so much growth it is him!

The audio for Tequan’s reel doesn’t work. Besides that my vote goes to Bryan with Pierson a close second

Out of all them Nicholas Betchel (Spenser) on GH in my opinion is & should be the Emmy Winner for Younger Actor in a Drama Series GH!

Max Ehrich (Fen Baldwin) gets my vote but lets face it, I think they already know who’s got the vote and it has to do with the producers themselves. That is why I never watch them.

Why is Nicolas Bechtel in the same category as these guys? They are old. He is the ‘YOUNGER’ contender, is he not? I don’t get it!!
But, be that as it may…….Bechtel has my vote. Big time!!!!!! He leaves everyone in the dust, considering his age. This is a STAR !!

heeey Ceecee..
I’m with Bryan/Morgan.. he has been giving A+ performances..

Not as a youngster, su. LOL. compared to whom? Bechtel? Age achieves maturity and ‘Mortem’ is no youngster. As you said, he is 24….. Almost old enough to be little Nick’s father. As a matter of fact, his girlfriend and I are about the same age. Bryan should be in the ‘adult’ category.
However, he is not good enough of an actor to be in that league….is that why? I don’t know. So he’s dumped at the ‘younger’ category’s door? Just speculating here; just sayin’.

Because there are no Emmy categories for Cutest Child Actors/Actresses As cute as the kids might be they’re basically just good at memorizing their lines and following the instructions of the director. They’re far too young and lack the life experience to deliver a truly nuanced acting performance. Nicholas Bechtel is a very cute kid but let’s be honest here…he’s also a little ham who’s just delivering overly precocious lines about his true love, Emma Drake. GH got a little carried away with their kiddie quad but the kids themselves who did do solid work for their age really don’t… Read more »

Oh, I understand KM. I have two small children myself and a ‘brigade’ of nieces and nephews.
More so the reason to establish a category all their own. To bunch these ‘cuties’ with adults is simply idiotic.

Nice work from all the nominees but Nicolas Bechtel is a standout. Tequan Richmond also delivers very understated, natural and believable performances.

They were all very good, but Bryan Craig would get my vote. My mother has dealt with bi-polar disorder for the past 20 years, so I know it very well, and he portrays it in a very real way. The sudden, random shifts from almost euphoria to suicidal despair. The manic episodes, the roller coaster of emotions. I think he’s really matured and grown as an actor since he joined the show in 2013. I’m also gonna say what I say every year at this time when I see the Emmy clips. It’s always amazing how many GH actors actresses… Read more »

I agree with the need for an age rule-overhaul regarding these “younger” categories. That being said, I don’t feel that Tequan or Max even deserve a nod this year. TR’s acting hasn’t progressed much and Max was barely seen. My vote goes to Bryan Craig for some really unforgettable and heartbreaking scenes this year. This actor is a real find. It took a while for me to warm to him, and now I can’t wait to see what he’ll do next. You can’t say that too often. Bechtel and Fode are also very good and would be deserving winners any… Read more »

I feel that this should go to Bryan Craig hands down. Regardless of what his age is or how people feel about him, his portrayal of Morgan going through all of the ups and downs of being bi-polar before he was diagnosed and put on medication has been played beautifully. To be honest, I wasn’t a fan in the beginning but he has grown into an amazing actor playing such a powerful story arc and deserves the award for that reason.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
