She best be for Sonny or Nathan..
Sonny and Nathan need a real woman, something new and exciting and great sex.
They both need some strange..
I’m ok with her being with either one.

It would be helpful to know how long she will be staying on, not knowing one can’t really detect who she will be tagged with or what/who she is..

(( Most likely she’ll be fixing Ava’s face..

I liked Martina and Sonny. She was hot and could act.

Oscar’s Mom could be Vanessa Marcil “Brenda”. Or Parker, the English professor.

I can’t stand Parker. And Krissie…who has turned out to be beautiful…looks like her daughter. It’s just such an awkward pairing! Even the way Parker talks to her sounds motherly or as a teacher… I think this actress coming aboard, who I’m not familiar with, might be a good fit for Parker. If not as her wife, then as a love interest. But I do agree, Rose, and StephMcB above, that perhaps she might be Oscar’s mom. Still. Why???????????????? Traded Lucy, Mac, Felicia, barely see Kevin and Laura, gave Hayden the boot..only to bring on Parker and this new person.… Read more »

Speaking of Parker–why trot her out yet again? More than a little disconcerting to see a teacher with her former student again. Flaunting the lack of balance of power and promoting illicit and illegal behavior in the face of the spate of teacher abuse of their students that has been in the news in recent years–seems so totally inappropriate, at the very least.

Thank you, Nancy…I’ve already alluded to this obviously unbalanced personal dynamic between these two characters…whether it be that of professor/student or one smacking of Krissie’s “mommy issues” with her pining for someone much more mature than her own years, it’s indeed sick…This plotline fizzled the first time it was attempted and to revisit it now will only invite more criticism.

Rebecca1
Guest

Well to be fair, Nancy, the teacher/student stories in the news are about underaged students…kids. Kristina was in college when she met Parker so though they seem/look like an odd fit, it’s not illicit or illegal.

There is also rumor Steve Burton’s new character is his father…earlier someone thought Brenda was coming back as his mom…why dont i even care???

I think she’ll be tied in with Steve Burton’s character. Can’t figure what capacity she’ll have on the canvas but I bet it’ll be good.

This is bogus! No offense to Korot, who is a great actress but why not keep Rebecca Budig instead! You cannot tell me that there was no more story to tell with Hayden! This is a big disappointment!

Nothing in this article indicates how long she’ll be around. I’d bet anything that this is NOT a contract role, thus much cheaper.

She might have a glorified day part like they gave to Jennifer Bassey and James dePaiva

I agree, Phil. It borders on insulting to boast about new characters or actors when they’ve let so many good ones go already.

Totally agree with Phil and Soaphound; there’s no need to bring her on. Very disappointing to see Rebecca go and a newbie brought in. Good grief, what are these writers thinking. There was so much hype when we were told Hilary B.Smith was joining GH…got alot of people excited and her role all along was intended to last for a few day. Viewers shouldn’t be confused with puppets or fish being thrown bait.

Phil
Guest

Especially when you consider the connections Hayden had to the canvas! Alla Korot is a soap vet, but Budig is also and there was so much more that Hayden could have done. I hope they are not planning on bringing Budig back as Greenlea(sp?) I did not watch AMC and I want Hayden!

Do we know if it’s just for a few days or longer? This show really doesn’t need any more fringe characters

Parker’s wife.

Allan reminds me of an older version of Lexi Ainsworth, so Parker would certainly have a “type”.

Oh how I loved her as Jenna!! Another World was SO good circa 1990-93! I hope she plays someone connected to others and not some throwaway role. Off the top of my head I can’t think of anyone. Hopefully, she will NOT be involved with Sonny in ANY way whatsoever. But the show is kind of top heavy with women in that age range…Carly, Sam, Liz, Olivia, Ava, etc. Soaps have very little success creating and integrating new characters these days. I will hope for the best as I like her.

Speaking of Griffin–a bit disgusting to see him with Ava today. TPTB have really failed that character. To have him speak of “grace” to Ava was just as repugnant as seeing Sonny in the chapel invoking the name of God. Ugh! Shivers!
To have him “succumb” to Ava’s “charms”–just like that! Again, unbelievable and again disgusting.

I like her. She is pretty. I remember her vaguely from Night Shift. People will bitch that its ANOTHER new character, use Bobbi, Felicia, ect but I’ve given up on “Classic GH”, Frank ruined that dream!

Not necessarily, Timmmbo….although I am no fan of newbie characters, I can at least applaud the fact that this actress hails from a defunct soap that many of us fondly remember and that its name is not “AMC” or “OLTL,” as is the usual case!!! With all the wonderful daytime dramas that are no longer on the air, the pool of available players from those said shows is practically endless, and as such, it’s refreshing to see that GH has finally found a place for someone who has not been a fixture at ABC for decades on end!

Oh, I hear you on that account, Timmmbo….but apparently the showrunners don’t—-no matter how frequently and loudly we send the message! I was actually being a bit pointed in my observation, since it was simply a relief to see someone…anyone…arriving in Port Charles from a different soap “world” (no pun intended….) other than Pine Valley, Llanview, or even Genoa City, for that matter!

Hey…as long as Alla Korot’s upcoming GH character doesn’t get horribly sucked into the CONSTANT Sonny/Carly foolishness…then I’m good.

Hey…just saying……….

Jimmy

Thank you. I resent so much that they killed off Alan because he and Monica should be the matriarch and patriarch of GH, but instead Sonny and Carly have claimed that position because it seems that major story always revolved around them and their horribly dysfunctional relationship.

Case in point: Sonny promised Carly that he wouldn’t lie to her ever again, and what does he do? Lie about Sam shooting him. The CarSon madness will never end.

Jimmy…aw, yeah, man. Sonny is nothing but a pathologically lying, murdering and cowardly LOWLIFE!!!!! Oh…and you’re right…the Sonny/Carly MADNESS will never end!!!!! Beyond sad.

They should a GH drinking game for new characters that are brought in and then disappear very quickly.

Jimmy

Hopefully her character and story will be short term because GH does not need anymore long-term characters, especially when they recently let Rebecca Budig go just as Hayden was becoming a much more likable, relatable and well-integrated character. We finally got to meet her father and see the character come full-circle with owning up to her past, and now she’s gone – with a terrible “disappearance” twist as an explanation for her absence to boot.

After news of RB & RWP being fired, who cares? I’m not a big fan of hers. Saw her at a public appearance when she first started on AW. She and Ricky Paul (whatever his last name is) wer bashing Connie Ford, which I thought was in very poor taste. Lost all respect her then and haven’t cared for her since. GH would be better off spending its money elsewhere…like in gett RB & RWP back on the canvass!

So they get rid of RWP and then bring in a new one? Like I said earlier WTH!!! Why did they bring back Palmer? That is one of the most boring storylines I have seen. I loved the pairing of Kiki and Dylan; they made an awesome couple, but no we are going to get Palmer and Kristina shoved down our throats. Watching the 2 of them act together is like watching paint dry!

Alla Korit is totally playing Susan Morgan (Jason’s Bio Mom) . She is alive and wil eventually fess up to having given birth to triplets (Steve Burton, Roger Howarth, Billy Miller). This will make fireworks with Monica, and reunite susan w/Scotty. All of this might not come out till Feb. but I’m afraid, they are pulling a Dallas stunt. “like Bobby in shower” Steve Burton will be the jason in the bed and Billy Miller will come back later as one of twins. Morgan is the one in the hood, and he made a fist cuz he wants to make… Read more »

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.
