Adam Huss Fills-In as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine for a Second Time

Viewers who watched Monday’s episode of General Hospital, were in for a bit of deja vu, when actor Adam Huss was seen taking on the role of Nikolas Cassadine.

Previously, Huss had subbed for actor Marcus Coloma for a single episode back in September of 2021.  Adam actually appeared on the September 29th, 2021 episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

There has been no word as to why there was once again a temporary recast for Coloma, and if Huss was just filling-in for one day, but fans of the show might find out if Adam continues to appear this week.

In story, Nikolas tried to keep Esme (Avery Pohl) locked up and hidden by any means possible, and received a visit from Ava (Maura West). Meanwhile, at the end of today’s episode, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) came to Wyndemere to talk to Nikolas about Esme.

On his Instagram on his GH temp assignment, Adam expressed: “Beyond grateful to fill in on @generalhospitalabc I had the most amazing time stepping in to play the dynamic character of Nikolas Cassadine and the casting department @markteschner and Lisa Booth, cast and crew may be the kindest, most hard working bunch of consummate professionals I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with in entertainment! No lie!”

So, did you enjoy Adam’s portrayal of Nikolas? Comment below.

Yes, I most definitely enjoyed his performance. He’s so much more likable than Coloma. I can’t stand his looks, acting or anything about him, but, that’s what shows how good he is, right?

Hi Violet 🙂
I never cared for Coloma. ..
he looks too young and not manly enough to be a Cassadine..
he doesn’t have a Cassadine persona-
He was badly cast…. He ain’t no Cassadine, nope..
He makes Ava look like a cougar lol..

Hi SuOOO
I couldn’t have said it better myself. I know a lot of our ladies here love Coloma but I just could never see his appeal, and you are right, he is dwarfed in Ava’s shadow. By the time Spencer is released from prison, HE will look like the father!

For me they have never found the right Nikolas yet. Especially when acting with someone like Maura/Ava.

Actually prefer him in the role over Coloma. Can come off a bit more edgier and appears more menacing than Coloma.

Pure speculation, but this might be due to contract negotiations with Coloma whose just completed 3 years on the show. Perhaps there was a delay coming to terms on one side or the other.

Regardless of who plays Nikolas, the writers need to get back to the smart caring prince and not this dumbed down version we’ve been seeing for a while.

Yes, he’s much more convincing playing a menacing Cassadine. Marcus appeared to be kind of goofy, like Jerry Lewis in The Nutty Professor sans the transformative potion.

Yes. I think he’s great. Seamless transition. Good looking actor who can act! He and Maura had great chemistry even in their brief scenes. The role is safe in his hands when Marcus is unavailable.

I always say, I never want to see someone lose a job BUT, Adam is so much more likable than Marcus! Plus, Adam and Avery Pohle make instant fire! Keep Adam!

I think he plays too angry and too menacing. Nikolas would not take glee in abusing and keeping a young pregnant girl hostage. He is a bit too dark … But perfectly adequate as a fill in.

I agree, JJ; only a fill-in for me. Nikolas is a spoiled rich guy and with that comes a little class and refinement that Adam doesn’t really display. Also, on a superficial level, he doesn’t have Marcus’ sexy prettiness that seems more suitable with Ava. No offense, but Mr. Huss seems more appropriate as a mechanic in Brando’s shop. Though that can be sexy, too…Brando sure was.

Yes! I hope he stays on as Nikolas. I’ve always thought Marcus was not a good fit for that role. Please keep Adam Huss

Nicholas is a tough role, playing a guy who keeps doing totally stupid, inexcusable things and acting opposite daytime powerhouses who are the best actors on the show with clearly-defined characters. I imagine it is very hard for an actor to find their footing in that context, and to have a firm sense of what their character’s motivation is because it keeps changing. I can see that Marcus Coloma does his best with the role, but right away I preferred Adam Huss as Nicholas. I could kind of see the character’s idiotic behaviour in a different, more layered way.

Brenda, Loved everything you say, and though Coloma does nothing for me except trying to act all rich and powerful, it doesn’t work. As Soaphound says, he’s a spoiled ,rich guy. He doesnt get anywhere, just stamps his foot, expecting everyone to jump, but no one does. Ava and the old pain in the ass uncle lead him around by his nose. His own mother sees his weakness and ineffectiveness. He keeps his son’s pregnant girlfriend locked up instead of turning her in, when he thinks she’s the hooker, though we know she’s not. He’s just a big mouth wimp.… Read more »

Nicholas is a tough role, playing a guy who keeps doing totally stupid, inexcusable things and acting opposite so many daytime powerhouses who are the best actors on the show (and have clearly-defined characters). I imagine it is very hard for an actor to find their footing in that context, and to have a firm sense of what the character’s motivation is because it keeps changing. I can see that Marcus Coloma does his best with the role, but he’s had a hard time conveying what Nicholas is about in the way that we know exactly what makes Valentin, Victor,… Read more »

I think Marcus Coloma is the best Nicholas, I use to love Tyler Christopher but I like Marcus so much more , I didn’t like Adam Huss as Nicholas, he seemed way too mean! Marcus is handsome & charming & I love his videos with Maurice, they are awesome together on instagram & TikTok , please keep Marcus as Nicholas, Adam can become someone new, just my opinion anyway.

I still love Tyler Christopher and would welcome him back in any capacity. How nice that you like Marcus and Maurice’s little entertaining videos, but that’s not how you measure a good actor, well maybe I’m wrong about that, evidenced by their Shtick.

Marcus Coloma had mentioned that he had Covid thus Adam Huss filling in again. Although, I don’t know how long he is out. How is it that the GH actors are getting Covid and having to be replaced whereas none of the other soaps seem to have any problem?! I just find it odd. Anyway, Huss is doing a good job. I’ve gotten used to Marcus playing Nicholas but I don’t think he is as good as Tyler Christopher was in the role.

Maybe others followed Steve Burton’s lead and didn’t get their shots, but then again, he couldnt get away with it, so don’t know how the others could.

Huss is ok but I prefer Coloma—Can’t beat the virility emanating from his deep stare—and those lips—Oh, those lips….
I think the anger Nikolas feels for Esme is a tell-all sign of something deeper, like attraction, or even love, if I dare say—maybe?—-methinks he “protesteths” too much.
Would psycho Esme do something to harm her own unborn baby?

Adam is a great substitute. IF Marcus ever leaves, I’d love Adam to take it. To be honest, I still find Marcus to be ‘soft’ as a Nikolaus. Tyler still my favorite (of course) and Nick Stabile was quite good. Adam is strong and does a really great job!

Maybe Coloma can take some cues from Huss’s performance? I see I’m not the only one who was impressed with the fresh take on Nikolas.

GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Robin Mattson Shares Why She Didn’t Return as GH’s Heather Webber

In late October, General Hospital fans were in for a shock when the character of Heather Webber returned to the canvas, in the form of ex-B&B star, Alley Mills.  Many viewers wondered why the previous Heather, soap vet Robin Mattson, did not return to tape new episodes.

Late last week, Mattson shared via her Facebook page an explantation as to why she was unable and unavailable to reprise her signature role on the ABC daytime drama series.  Robin revealed she is recovering from knee surgery and will soon undergo hip replacement surgery.

Mattson’s full post expressed: “As nice as is to be missed and so many of you have wondered what happened to me, I just want to let you know that I’ve been recovering from my knee surgery and today I’m going to have hip replacement surgery. Thank you all for your love and support! Looking forward to a fast recovery! Love Robin ❤”

Robin is the third actress to play the role of Heather.  She came on to GH back in 1980.  Later, she exited to play Gina on Santa Barbara and Janet on All My Children, and also had stints as B&B’s Sugar, ATWT’s Cheri, DAYS Lee Michaels, and even Delia on Ryan’s Hope.  The actress also continued to play GH’s Heather on and off through 2016.

So, glad to hear from Robin? Enjoying Alley Mills as Heather? Send your well-wishes and a speedy recovery to Robin via the comment section below.
