An update on some earlier news from this morning, when speculation began after a casting call went out for a role that sounded similar to that of Port Charles’ Sabrina Santiago!

Now, due to the fact that Teresa Castillo (Sabrina) is set to exit General Hospital to go on maternity leave, the description seemed it could be a temporary replacement, if not a permanent one.

On-Air On-Soaps spoke to an ABC rep this afternoon who indicated that GH is not recasting the role and replacing Teresa Castillo.  As to whether the casting call is indeed a temporary replacement, or a new character, there was no comment on that from the representative.

So, do you think the role is completely a different character, or temp recast?  Weigh-in below!

    Yay! I would be surprised if the writers hadn’t already planned for Castillo’s maternity leave. Like most fans, I hate temporary recasts.

      Jen Lilley was a brilliant temporary recast for Maxie when Kirsten had to go on medical leave.

        She’s not a good replacement for Sabrina. I’m not good with all of the forced changes. I still want the old Lulu back. Hmmm!

        Yes she was – and as much as I love Kirsten, I was sorry to see Jen go. Isn’t she on DOOL now?

      I read from another page that the casting call was for a doctor. So, Sabrina will not have a recast.

    I think it’s classy that they are indicating the actress will not be replaced, which would keep the mystery out of any temp re-casting.

    • lovesgh

      April 15, 2014 at 9:26 pm

      Yes, I think it was classy too. Sabrina is a breath of fresh air, someone without an agenda, and we love her!

      • Debbie

        April 16, 2014 at 10:17 am

        She had an agenda. She USED Emma, a child grieving her mother, to get a grieving widower, Patrick to pay attention to her. She is far from sweet & innocent like people want to think.

      • rebecca1

        April 16, 2014 at 5:50 pm

        @Debbie…wow! Sabrina so did NOT use Emma…I don’t know where or how you’d interpret that. You can like Sabrina or not…but she’s nothing if not loving and her feelings for Emma were and are completely sincere. It’s amazing how people can be so off about a character’s sensibility.

      • CrystalJ

        April 17, 2014 at 8:29 am

        I completely agree with @Rebecca1! Sabrina is a sweetheart! She helped Patrick & Emma move on, & she did not do it in a spiteful way! She had no hidden agenda, just pure love & compassion for them. To speak so harshly of such a wonderful character is blaffing.

      • FAS

        April 17, 2014 at 12:31 pm

        @Debbie…agenda? Sabrina? A lot of viewers may not like her acting skills, but Sabrina’s personality and heart are not capable of plotting any schemes. Are we watching the same soap?

      • Julia

        April 27, 2014 at 12:17 pm

        I agree. Sabrina ia a breath of fresh air. I like her. I hope they do not destroy her character. I hope they leave some “good” in the world.

      • Candy

        April 27, 2014 at 5:43 pm

        please bring her back

      • carol

        June 23, 2014 at 5:04 pm

        PLEASE bring Sabrina back!! She is wonderful and beautiful and perfect for Patrick and Emma. Keep Robin where ever she is she’s “milk toast” compared to sweet Sabrina………

    Maybe they will recast Robin, like they have for Jason.

    • crazy Isabella

      April 15, 2014 at 3:29 pm

      Recast Robin now, with Elizabeth Hendrickson, soon to be ex chloe young and the restless. Recast Jason Morgan with Michael Muhney ex Adam.

      • Mama

        April 15, 2014 at 3:58 pm

        Oh God no to the Michael Muhney suggestion!!!

      • jimh(leave it to beaver)

        April 15, 2014 at 4:23 pm

        I also had said in other post Elizabeth H. should be new Robin!!! She even resembles F.H.(Anna) imo!!!

      • Dani

        April 15, 2014 at 6:24 pm

        Great idea! EH would be a great Robin and MM a great Jason Morgan.

      • Timmm

        April 16, 2014 at 5:46 am

        Brilliant! Adam and Chloe!

      • FAS

        April 16, 2014 at 4:50 pm

        No Robin…and, definitely no Jason.

      • Hunt

        April 25, 2014 at 8:35 am

        Please don’t let Elizabeth Hendrickson replace Kimberly. They are not even in the same league.

      • Deb

        May 1, 2014 at 1:09 pm

        Robin can never be recast. Kimberly McCullough has been on and off that soap since she was about 7 years old. Robin is truly HER character. I cannot imagine anyone else EVER playing Robin other than Kimberly!

    • FAS

      April 15, 2014 at 3:38 pm

      Oh, no! Jason was recast? Really? Where have I been? OMG…Nooooooo!!!!

      • su0000

        April 15, 2014 at 4:52 pm

        Jason, he has not been recast….

      • SZima

        April 15, 2014 at 6:07 pm

        I’ve heard nothing about a Jason recast. Don’t believe it until it’s announced officially by ABC.

      • rebecca1

        April 16, 2014 at 5:56 pm

        Ha! Too bad Sean Kanan left on bad terms and has another gig. He could have come back as Jason…the Cassadine’s could have rearranged his face to cause a lil havoc…Sonny would be eternally conflicted now that his best friend has returned with the face of the man he murdered…Michael could have a two-for-one…his beloved Uncle Jason walking around in the face of his beloved bio dad. And we’d get Sean back! Win/win!

        (so not happening but I like it!) 😉

    I guess I can stop fussing now LOL. Happy to hear this since Sabrina is my fave character right now and I have been waiting for her story to play out. Thank you 🙂

    • su0000

      April 15, 2014 at 4:55 pm

      I think the role is completely a different character..
      A relative of Sabrina’s.. (or friend ..

      • andrew hass

        April 16, 2014 at 6:16 am

        When Teresa goes on maternity leave i think Sabrina goes back to Puerto Rico for bit and the new character could be someone she meets down there or a relative who follows her back to Port Charles to make sure Sabrina is okay.Plus even though the show is casting now the character may not show up onscreen for awhile.Also this new character could be connected to Carlos too somehow.

      • pat

        April 27, 2014 at 2:11 pm

        I think it is an medical doctor for Patrick. She will fall in love with Patrick dating and Sabrina will be jealous. That is my though.

    • Timmm

      April 16, 2014 at 5:47 am

      I’m curious, what do you like about her?

      • Kimi

        April 22, 2014 at 10:26 am

        For me she is a breath of fresh air in a very stale and IMO entitled group. I love the energy, strength, and heart Teresa adds to the character. I like that her character is different, unique, and relatable. I also like the fact that she has made me laugh out loud, cry and smile. Hope you feel the same way about your fave. 🙂

    April 15, 2014 at 3:47 pm

    Boo. I was excited for a minute there. Although I’d rather get rid of Sabrina completely. Terrible character played by a mediocre actress.

    • su0000

      April 15, 2014 at 4:50 pm

      Teresa Castillo is a good actress, she plays her part as written and directed for her, very well..
      I like Sabrina… Looking forward to her and Patrick..
      Being Patrick is an ass it will be a bumpy ride..

      • pat

        April 27, 2014 at 2:14 pm

        TC played her part as written and so did Robin but everyone seems to think
        she left Patrick and Emma . Patrick agree to her leaving, so why is he crying about it now.

    • Ana

      April 15, 2014 at 6:01 pm

      That’s great news that she’s not getting replaced. Teresa is a very talented actress one would say a 1,000,000% better that Kimberly. All you Sabrina haters keep your comments to yourself, Teresa is a much better actress than Kimberly will every be. No one trashes the character of Robin or the actress that plays her so for all of us Sabrina (Teresa) fans have the same courtesy and respect that we show Robin aka: Kimberly.

      • C

        April 15, 2014 at 8:14 pm

        “No one trashes the character of Robin or the actress”

        Didn’t you just in the previous sentence?

      • Nikki

        April 16, 2014 at 3:23 am

        Lol, you do realize that you actually DID just trash Kimberly, right? Saying that Teresa is a much better actress than Kimberly is trashing her. So much for showing respect :/ Patrina fans are constantly trashing Robin/Kimberly, there is no respect there. FWIW, I am a Robin fan, I have no interest in Sabrina, but I don’t go around trashing the character or the actress. Also, just as you are entitled to express your love for Sabrina, others are allowed to express their hate. So they don’t need to keep their comments to themselves, everyone is entitled to an opinion.

      • Debbie

        April 16, 2014 at 3:37 am

        And here you are trashing not only Robin…but Kimberly.

      • Mary Anne

        April 16, 2014 at 5:28 am

        So you say, as you trash Kimberly McCullough. The irony is laughable. I guess this is a “do as I say, not as I do” type of thing?

      • Timmm

        April 16, 2014 at 5:51 am

        Ok, I wont bash Sabrina, I will praise Robin. First off, she is a wonderful actor. Secondly, she has been on the show forever and has amazing history with her character and her parents are legends. Robin is connected to Sonny, Carly, Jason, Stone, Patrick, Robert, Anna, Duke, ect.

      • Shay

        April 16, 2014 at 7:18 am

        “No one trashes the character of Robin or the actress that plays her….” Um, Ana, have you EVER read su000’s comments regarding that subject, one as recently posted as, oh yesterday????? According to her, GH is pretty much one constant jolly…EXCEPT for anything having to do with Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake, of course! I rest my case.

      • Tomika

        April 16, 2014 at 8:07 am

        I agree 100% with you Ana I love Sabrina she is a great actress and I’m glad she’s not being recast

        April 16, 2014 at 10:31 am

        You are for lack a better word deliusional comparing the two, because there is no comparsion. Two Time Emmy award winning actress verus a green horn, cut me a break. A legacy character with a rich history on this show verus someone who came on as a babysitter and we are suppose to believe she is better, I think you need a math lesson because you are so off the mark it is laughable.

      • Deb

        April 16, 2014 at 11:33 am

        Oh really… Wow, then why does Kimberly have 2 daytime Emmys on her mantle? As well as the respect of EVERY veteran actor on the show. Wow!!!

      • pat

        April 27, 2014 at 2:16 pm

        I do not hate Sabrina. I just like Robin better as an actress.

      Sabrina is a delightful and beautiful character played by an awesome character. I am so tired of waiting for Patrick to wise up and realize that Sabrina is way better than that pompous arrogant and spoiled Robin. She always acts like she is better than everyone else.

      • Debbie

        April 16, 2014 at 10:26 am

        Patrick wised up the day he saw his true love Robin standing before him in the church. He comes alive being around Robin. Patrick is dull and boring with the nurse. Watching paint dry is more exciting.

      • Cathy

        April 16, 2014 at 11:36 am

        Arrogant is the glorified babysitter nurse who made Patrick ignore the calls from Robin. . Pompass is the glorified babysitter nurse who makes everything about her. He chose his Wife ROBIN, enough said. The babysitter lied about wanting Emma happy since Emma wanted her MOTHER Robin who makes her happy. So glad Emma told babysitter nurse “your not my mommy”

        Kimberly is talented and didn’t have to be propped like Glorified babysitter. In fact Kimberly made THREE pairing popular.I dO agree with Kimberly and JT, that Robin and Patrick are soulmates. She and JT should know. There are a supercouple! Patrick nor JT ever had to carry Robin/Kimberly in scenes. In fact JT said he was thrilled Kimnerly his close friend was back because they just know each other and work so well together and you don’t get that with others.

      • natalie

        April 16, 2014 at 7:25 pm

        There is no need for Patrick to wise up as you say because he made his choice he choice his wife because after everything that Sabrina tired and failed he still went back to Robin because in his heart of hearts he never stopped loving her. He may have been grateful to Sabrina but there is a huge difference between gratitude and love he does not and never has been in love with Sabrina but he is and always has been in love with Robin. Robin is it for Patrick no matter how hard Sabrina fans try and convince themselves the truth is the truth. And another thing the baby was never suppose to be written into the story line it was done to accommodate the actress which in my book is extremely unnecessary other actresses have been pregnant on the show and they were never afforded the same courtesy makes you wonder why this particular actress is being treated so differently. If a person didn’t know any better you would swear there is some type of favortisim at work here. Not cool GH and TIIC

    • Shay

      April 16, 2014 at 3:24 am

      I’m thinking (okay, hoping, REALLY HOPING!) that is exactly what is going to happen, and this is a new character intended to placate that demographic group which will probably raise holy heck when the deplorable Disney dud is dropped.

    • Timmm

      April 16, 2014 at 5:52 am

      Amen!

    • natalie

      April 16, 2014 at 10:25 am

      Totally agree was a mistake from the get go, and TIIC refuse to accept that she is neither fits or is wanted. a small faction of people like the character but majority finds her as one dimensional as a colorfom figure. She is flat, uninteresting and has totally dragged down the character or Patrick. He has been reduced to puppet and she is the puppeteer. It sad for long-time fans to watch this destruction of a character that had so much bravado, confidence & attitude reduced to this in favor of someone who is by no means an equal. Best thing that could happen is Sabrina stays gone. You want to move Patrick on and away from Robin I understand that but do it with an actress who is his equal not some Disney Princess Wannbe.

    • Jimmy

      April 16, 2014 at 1:32 pm

      Thank you! I don’t like Sabrina and to be honest, I never have. Same with Britt, she never caught on with me. I’m hoping they write Teresa Castillo out when she goes on maternity leave because personally, I don’t see the point of her character. It’s not that I think she’s a bad actress, I would just much prefer to see Patrick with Robin, even if that means a recast. Elizabeth Hendrickson would be great IMO

      • Elite Advisors

        April 17, 2014 at 10:58 pm

        I actually like the idea of replacing Kim Mc once and for all….How about Nadia Bjorn from DOOL? She and Patrick would have off the charts chemistry!!!

      • barbara

        April 28, 2014 at 4:06 am

        I don’t know how to do this, but it seems like you all know what’s been going on so anyplace is a good place to ask. It was my understanding that Kimberly was ready to come back but she only came back on a 6 mo contract. Whose idea was that? I read that the actress would return. After 50 years I am, considering getting away from GH. I started watching this almost from day one if not for day one, with my mother. IMHO I think when you watch a program for this long you feel vested in the characters you like. The idea of a Sonny that has never goes to jail is ridiculous. I guess I’d better stop here since this is about Sabrina and her actor. Maybe you could direct me to a place I can get information such as has passed here. Thanks.

    April 15, 2014 at 4:30 pm

    well, if it’s NOT Her– then it means NEW character? GH already has way way way too many people

    • Jimmy

      April 16, 2014 at 1:33 pm

      That’s what I was thinking too, are they seriously bringing on ANOTHER new character? And the casting call said for a female doctor… look at how the other two new female doctor roles – Sabrina and Britt – have played out. Not many people are fans of either of these characters. I don’t think this is the right move.

      • FAS

        April 16, 2014 at 5:08 pm

        We may not like these characters, but they are far from having been played out. Whether Sabrina is recast or not, this protagonist has a lot of story left…and Britt’s story is just starting…..I still believe Sabrina has a connection with Sonny and we know that Britt’s feet are firmly planted on GH’s floor…..just my opinion.

    April 15, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    FV&RC do one helluva job giving us new people to create new stories and not let us sit in a stale rut..

    It will be a surprise!!!

    ((perhaps a relative of Sabrina’s , hmm friend or foe ??

  11. Jules

    April 15, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    April 15, 2014 at 5:38 pm

  13. natalie

    April 15, 2014 at 6:04 pm

    makes no difference one way or another she is not a vital character is not needed and not wanted Patrick needs to be moved away from her other wise his character is going to damages beyond repair. Paring him with Sabrina was the biggest mistake GH ever made if they were smart they would explore other avenues for him. She should go on maternity leave and not come back and if she does come back be steered clear of Patrick and Emma.

    • Kate

      April 15, 2014 at 9:34 pm

      Could not disagree with you more. Love Sabrina and her portrayer.

      • FAS

        April 16, 2014 at 5:17 pm

        I like her also, but , I agree with Natalie…she and Patrick? No, I don’t think so. They should not be together. However, as I said, Sabrina’s story is not done…her parentage will come into play, sooner or later…then, there’s the baby’s paternity which does not sit well with me, as it stands. But, what do I know…this soap has more twists than Manson’s brain.

    • Patrick

      April 15, 2014 at 10:11 pm

      which… : dang it all… it’s said.. the head writer and executive producer.. don’t give a rats ass : what the fans think, and or want

      therein, lies the quagmire… of fan recourse

      simple answer… and BIG truth

      pair Sabrina… with Carlos

      I think they are so endearing together… and a MUST to stear toward a bigger audience…

      Carlos is draw… an enigmatic… being and presence… that – tingles – for me… and ACTS… well

      Sabrina is a natural with… compared to Dr. Patrick Drake

      ’nuff said…

      Carlos said it again… regardless of whether the child is his… he loves that woman… and would CARE for… and make this a family

      that makes Carlos more endearing… likeable… and a catch

      he’s FUN

      • Lenore Boyle

        April 16, 2014 at 8:50 am

        Carlos is toxic. That would be a mistake for Sabrina and him to hook up. Patrick smiles when he is with Sabrina, there is love and happiness between them. She loves Emma. Robin is selfish and does what she wants to do. Robin really screwed Patrick and Emma. Patrick, Sabrina, Emma and baby one Big Happy Family.

      • su0000

        April 16, 2014 at 1:00 pm

        Patrick.. I think Sabrina will eventually be with Carlos..
        However ; Sabrina being with rhe mobster killer Carlos, would be interesting lol..

        I can see it now..
        Carlos come home with a bullet hole and Sabrina nurses him while asking-
        ”how many did you kill? did the drug shipment get through?” lol yah great pair!!

      • FAS

        April 16, 2014 at 5:23 pm

        Well, then, Patrick…Carlos should start this journey to endearment with a shore and a shave.

      • FAS

        April 16, 2014 at 5:28 pm

        I meant shower and shave..lol. And su0000, you are right. I feel the same way. Sabrina and a Carlos will probably end up together because the baby is his. I hope I am not making a fool of myself by constantly saying this. I only question the big age difference. He does not look in his late twenties…..because he is NOT!

      • pat

        April 27, 2014 at 2:37 pm

        But Sabrina did not want anything to do with Emma when Robin came back.
        Patrick told her she can still see Emma, Sabrina said no. Where is the love?
        I guess if she could not have Patrick she did not want Emma. She want Emma if its a package deal. Patrick, Emma and Sabrina

      • Jennifer Cassill

        April 27, 2014 at 5:30 pm

        Could not agree more. I love Carlos and Sabrina together. They have incredible chemistry. Love the characters and actors who portray them. IMO I don’t think Patrick is really all that thrilled about Sabrina having his baby. He’s just there out of obligation. I don’t care if Robin comes back or not or whether her and Patrick get back together or not. Robin didn’t have any business leaving her family after being away from them for so long. So if Robin comes back and has no family waiting for her she has only herself to blame. I won’t feel sorry for her.

    • FAS

      April 16, 2014 at 9:11 am

      I agree. Sabrina and Patrick are not a good match….this would be a big mistake. However, I do not, by any means , think that I do not like Teresa/Sabrina…..on the contrary, is love her…just not for Patrick.

    I knew they weren’t going to let go of Teresa Castillo right before she goes on maternity leave but the show left the door open that it could be a temporary recast of Sabrina.

      LOL Puerto Rico actually, but I agree. The baby should turn out to be Carlos’ and they should move back there together.

      • Jennifer

        April 27, 2014 at 5:37 pm

        I wouldn’t mind the baby being Carlos’s but I wouldn’t want them to move back to Puerto Rico. I would like to see them get together and I would like to see Carlos get out of the mob and find a respectable job so he wouldn’t be putting Sabrina and the baby in danger with his mob ties.

    • Jimmy

      I think RC has done and is doing a great job as the head writer. Most stories have been very interesting and he’s found ways to connect so many characters and stories together.

      Yes, there have been some stinkers, like A.J.’s death and Robin’s return and exit, but for the most part, he and FV are doing a great job with the show.

    Honestly, I really like sabrina, and the actress who plays her. I like them together as well.(Patrick, and sabrina) . I felt they were so good together, that I didn’t like him back with robin. It felt wrong, and in scenes from yesterday where he runs into pregnant sabrina, it felt awkward…because of the way he did truly love her. Now she is treated like a stranger . also, It didn’t feel right that he went to robin, at the alter, because of how he felt about sabrina…I think they are good together…I don’t understand how Patrick’s character, treats her like he is…doesn’t make sense at all…jmho. I didn’t like him with robin this time around..

    • Joyce

      April 21, 2014 at 5:58 am

      I agree with you Carol.
      Patrick should have stayed at the alter and married Sabrina. That baby is Patrick’s baby..not Carlos’. Carlos even said that baby is NOT his last week.Patrick fell in love with Sabrina and she helped him move-on with his life (along with other characters…like Liz, Sam etc) .
      Robin left her husband and child, AFTER ALL they went through as a family. Patrick needs to make his own life, with Sabrina, Emma and new baby.

    Sabrina is a vital Character. Patrick and Sabrina are the PERFECT couple. Hopefully Robin falls into the vat where the hunksicle Jason (Steve Burton) is located and is NEVER heard from again. I don’t miss Robin, I don’t want her back. As far as Jason unless Steve Burton is Jason, leave him a frozen hunksicle until such time that Steve Burton is available to return as Jason.

      Sabrina is as vital as day old bread. she is not needed nor wanted she is dragging the character of Patrick down. He deserves more than a wannbe. Set him free and let him let him interact with someone who does not see everything through rose colored glasses and fairy dust it is old and tiresome. He is not Prince Charming and she certainly is no Cinderella!

        Sabrina is a good actor. Patrick needs a do-over..
        He basks in his self pity.. Always ”ohh woe is me” ..
        and when he is not rolling in his pity me, he is an ass, that I like about him at least he has something going on from him outside of being a cry baby when he is being an ass,, 🙂
        The way Patrick is written these days he is not good enough for Sabrina and she should dump him.. He will only cry on her shoulder about his heart owwweee!
        outside of that stuff I am OK with all others/else..

    • Jimmy

      April 16, 2014 at 1:42 pm

      Consider Elizabeth Hendrickson as Robin and Billy Miller as Jason. I think that would be PERFECT casting, should the roles be recast. SB is staying at Y&R for the foreseeable future, and if all of KMc’s returns are going to be short-lived as her most recent one was, they should really recast Robin for story purposes

      As for Sabrina, she is not a vital character. If she was written out, neither the show nor story would be effected by it. In fact, it might help things story-wise because it would be one less character for RC to write for. I’ve never liked her as a character but TC is an okay actress. However, she is not needed.

    Well since I’m Teresa’s #1 fan and supporter I’ll say that she fit the part to the max. You can see that some of personality has become part of the character Sabrina, which is genuine and selfless. She has only been on GH for just over a year and she has a vast number of fans that truly love her, not just as Sabrina but also as Teresa. One more thing, Teresa is beautiful, sweet, and you get what you see with her. Just a kind hearted, fun person who I love dearly. Its time that Patrick character is given the freedom to move on with his life and be with the woman who is always there for him and Emma; Sabrina.

    • FAS

      April 16, 2014 at 7:35 pm

      You are100 % correct. Teresa/Sabrina is all those things. I really like her a lot….just not with Patrick…my opinion, that’s all.

  21. Cathy

    April 16, 2014 at 11:41 am

    Never felt the propped Disney Princess and poor Patrick. If a pairing works there is no need to destroy characters for them. There is also no need to tell me who to like and make another character in this case Britt so evil that people had to like the princess. Wake up princess, get your own man, Patrick loves and belongs with Robin.

    You can ALWAYS see the love in scenes switch Robin and Patric. .

    • natalie

      April 16, 2014 at 7:29 pm

      Totally agree Cathy. The scenes between Robin and Patrick had an effortless flow and that was not the case with Sabrina and Patrick it was forced and painful to watch. I can’t for life of me figure out why TIIC have such a hard on for this character I don’t see anything that would make me want to invest in this pairing until Patrick and Robin who immediately caught my attention from their first scenes together. It is like comparing apples and pears they just are not the same at all.

  22. Iakovos

    April 16, 2014 at 1:08 pm

    I don’t care either way. Sabrina was a character I could handle. She was not mob or resurrected! But it is difficult to root for her and Jason as I want him to be with Robin. A Jason-Sabrina baby seems dumb to me, as did the Robin departure after all the buildup to a return from the dead.

    Should have recast Robin. I am tired of babies on GH, actress pregnant or not.

      • Iakovos

        April 18, 2014 at 8:26 am

        I meant Patrick, not Jason. I think I got actor and character names confused. I stand corrected and thank you for righting my listing ship.

        I wanted Patrick and Robin to stay together, as much as it seemed Patrick could move on with Sabrina. For Patrick and Sabrina to have a baby disappoints me, after all the buildup to have Robin return. I would have preferred a recast of Robin for the sake of story. Patrick and Robin are the end game for me and I would have liked to have enjoyed the story of them rebuilding their relationship.

    • FAS

      April 21, 2014 at 4:23 pm

      Don’t worry too much about Sabrina and Patrick having a baby together. I doubt it will turn out that way. I strongly suspect Carlos is the baby’s daddy.

    I liked Teresa and her character from the beginning. Teresa can only portray Sabrina the way Ron and the others write her, so I think it’s unfair for people to say that Teresa isn’t doing a great job. Unthinking people blame the actress (any actress or actor) for what is most often the writers’ deficiencies.
    Having watched Kimberley McCullough from the first day she began on G.H. and her frequent exits and comebacks, I find it too jarring to have her come and go as she has the past few times due to her other passion of directing. As much as I love the character of Robin, I’d rather see that character not return any more than go through any more heartbreaking exits from her family and we viewers.
    As a Canadian, I love seeing Jason Thompson on my screen — which doesn’t happen nearly often enough — and I think he has chemistry with Teresa and would like to see Patrick and Sabrina as a couple again, for themselves as well as for their baby. But all of these characters are at the mercy of the head writer and his team, and if Ron can’t be bothered to write good stories (or any at all) for all of the characters on screen [did he EVER like A.J.?], then the show will become the G.H. that Bob Guza wrote. As far as I’m concerned, it’s already well on its way to that terrible time when the only characters written for on a regular basis were Sonny and Carly; add Franco to that list now.
    Fans/posters: Please re-read what you’ve typed for spelling and grammar before you press the Submit button, and for the few of you who have negative comments, at least don’t be hateful. How would you feel if some stranger wrote horrible remarks on your personal character or life? There’s such a thing as constructive criticism without being mean and destructive.

    • FAS

      April 17, 2014 at 12:48 pm

      A writer writes the lines, a director directs the actor/actress…but, so far and do much…the rest is up to the protagonist….

  27. dmr

    April 17, 2014 at 9:27 am

    I actually like Teresa as Sabrina. I think the problem with the show is that there are way too many recurring characters. With so many characters, both the characters and their storylines get lost in the shuffle, we lose interest, then a quick end to the storyline is developed to wrap it up. It’s a disservice to the viewers. We no longer have supercouples, mysteries, cliff-hanger Fridays. Clean house with the newcomers and focus on the contract and veteran actors. Get rid of the tween scene, too. Way too many of them.

    Sabrina, if I remember right is a cousin to Sonny’s long dead wife Lily. Sabrinais going to Puerto Rico perhaps Lily is coming back from the dead. That would make life in Port Chuck interesting.

  32. Lynne

    April 24, 2014 at 10:14 am

    No temps please! PLEASE bring back Julie as LuLu, ditch the new Franco, and lose Sam! As much as Kimberly Mc is a part of GH, I don’t care for her character any more. Glad Laura is gone and they should send Baldwin packing! Too many characters makes for confusion.Concentrate on Michael, Morgan, Kiki and Maxi. Miss Spinnelli! Mis Jason but don’t recast him!

    I love Sabrina’s character! I think her a Patrick should be together. I don’t think they should bring Robin back unless it is when a replacement for Steve Burton is found and Jason returns! The writers obviously want them together considering every time she leaves it is somehow or another connected to Jason. Also, I think Eric Winters would be an AWESOME Jason! He used to play Rex on Days of Our Lives! He is AMAZING!

  35. Diane

    April 27, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    I really like Sabrina (Teresa). I’m so happy they’re not replacing her. She did the right thing for Robin and Patrick. Now, that Robin chose to leave – yet again, I would like to see her with Patrick and Emma. Let them get married, have their family, and let’s finally have a “normal” family on GH.

  36. Brenda Harper

    April 27, 2014 at 1:46 pm

    We love Sabrina and it will not be the same without her. When she goes to have her baby, please bring her back. No one else can play sweet Sabrina. Patrick won’t be right without our Sabrina.

  37. Jennifer

    April 27, 2014 at 6:13 pm

    Sabrina should be with Carlos. He is way hotter than Patrick and he is the one that truly loves Sabrina, not Patrick. Carlos loves Sabrina more than Patrick ever could or ever would. He even offered to raise another man’s child. Don’t know too many men who would do that. Patrick is just interested in this baby of Sabrina’s out of obligation that’s it. You can even tell by the way he acts around Sabrina. It even mentioned that he missed several Dr’s appointments with Sabrina but Carlos showed up in case Patrick wasn’t going to show up again. I thought that was the sweetest thing ever and it speaks volumes about how Carlos would be there for Sabrina and her baby. Carlos was right when he asked Patrick, “When have you ever put Sabrina and her baby first 100%?” Another comment he made that was also true was when he said, “If your wife walked through that door right now you would drop Sabrina so fast her head would spin.” He was absolutely correct on that….just wish he would get out of the mob and get a regular job so he, Sabrina and baby can live happily ever after….

    Please don’t take Theresa as sabrina off of General hospital and why change anything as the old saying goes why fix something that isn’t broke she is doing a great job but i don’t think she needs to be with Patrick as we all know robin is coming back but as a replacement you all shouldn’t have broke up the wedding between Patrick and Sabrina when Robin came back and break Sabrinas heart that way as you all knew Robin wasn’t staying..Now let her move on to someone else that will love her and Please let her precious baby live..You all don’t listen to us anyway as i said from the get go we become to love people on there then you killl them off like AJ he was beginnning to be good then you killed him off please let Ava pay for her crimes…

    Teresa Castillo(as Sabrina)plays one of the most refreshing characters on the show. Robin’s return was wonderful for Emma but so devastating to Sabrina who handled it with dignity and class. Robin and Patrick had no chemistry this time around.
    I love GH and have watched it forever, but right now there is way too much dysfunction ! They need to have one beautiful love story on there right now. Patrick and Sabrina were it! I sincerely hope that after Teresa’s maternity leave, she will return and the writers will bring them back together again.

    I just hope Theresa comes back after maternity leave. I love her as Sabrina so much. I was pulling for Patrick to pick Sabrina over Robin (I know that’s not a popular opinion). Sabrina had so much more chemistry with Patrick than Robin. Robin was the cutest kid ever, but she seems a little cold as an adult.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?
