For those of you who watched General Hospital for many years, one of the most talented young actresses ever to appear on the show was Amber Tamblyn, who was the original Emily Bowen Quartermaine!  Of course, Amber has gone on to star in primetime television and motion picture projects.   However on Tuesday, Amber took to her facebook page to post a special message to her fans and colleagues just what it meant to start her career on the ABC soap.   Here is what she had to say!

Amber Tamblyn: “Yesterday was General Hospital’s 50th Anniversary and I couldn’t be more proud to call myself part of their family. GH is where I learned everything about my craft- the art of emotional intelligence, of listening, of interpreting, of setting a scene on fire.  It’s where I held Stuart Damon and wept when my real life Grandmother passed away, and where Stuart Damon held me and wept when Anna Lee passed away. Its where I learned how to be disciplined in what I do. Where I found myself, as an actress, as a woman, and as veteran. Its where I learned what having REAL fans in your corner can do for you: carry you into a confidence that most actresses only dream of. On GH, we burned for them and they for us. I absorbed the skilled techniques of John Homa, the turbulent genius of Maurice Bernard, the soft golden simplicity of John Ingle. Its where I had my first real life teenage secret crush (Shout out to you, Jonathan Jackson) and where I developed sister-strong bonds (double shout out, Kimberly and Becky).

General Hospital is more than an America staple. Its the staple gun.  I hope every actor has a chance to experience working on a Soap, and every kid gets to grow up watching one with family. Today I am thinking only of GH and this incredible, historic milestone.”

What do you think about Amber’s message GH fans? Did it touch you?  Let us know!

I love her. This is a very nice thing for Ms. Tamblyn to do. I so enjoyed her on JOAN OF ARCADIA, too, and I hope there will be other mass appeal projects to challenge her as an actress and to entertain us as audiences.

I liked her in Joan of Arcadia also. Was disappointed when it was cancelled. I saw
her in a hallmark movie today called Russell Girl….

Lovely and clearly heartfelt. Amber Tamblyn is the real Emily to me (loved Joan of Arcadia). I was never fond of Natalia Livingston in that role.

Love how Amber not only acknowledges her soap opera roots, but loves and respects them enough to write this beautifully written post and share these sentiments. I loved her as Emily (I liked Natalia, as well) and I am so happy she has been successful in life afterward, yet is able to appreciate where she started out. 🙂

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.
