Anders Hove Returns To GH As Faison!

Courtesy/ABC

Such fantastic news for General Hospital fans, the uber-villain of them all, Cesar Faison will be back on screen next week, when Anders Hove makes another triumphant return to the ABC daytime drama series.

Hove has returned to the canvas a multitude of times from his native Denmark beginning in 1990-1992, 1999-2000, and in 2012, 2013, and 2014.  With the hunt for Faison in full throttle mode, his bio-son Nathan (Ryan Paevey) determined to find him, another Faison son out there, Jason (Steve Burton) wanting retribution for Faison “killing” him and dumping into the pier, the whole Jasoning of Drew (Billy Miller), and of course, Obrecht’s (Kathleen Gati), and Faison’s ultimate nemesis and obsession, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), so much is about to go down in Port Charles.

In a new interview in this weeks issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale on newsstand now, Hove talked from Denmark prior to coming to the States to film his episodes of GH.  He weighed-in on what he thinks will happen with the revelation that Faison has two sons!

Anders expressed: “It’s going to be tough, and it’s going to be strange.  I have only met Nathan in scenes when I really didn’t know he was my son at that point, and I don’t know for sure who the other son is, and I’m sure I haven’t met the actor, either. It’s going to be interesting.”

So are you ready for the exciting return of Cesar Faison?  Who will eventually capture him, or will he once again escape and live to see another day?

It’s always good to have Faison on the canvas to scare people. He is GH’s deadliest villain after all. Tony Geary said that a long time ago and I do have to agree with him.

Well, I never liked this character but the COO of Aurora, I think is Faison’s son but I could be wrong. Great to see Obrecth get hit in the head for once.

Just love when they bring actor back but have no clue what the story is yep beating my head against a wall!

Ok, K/kay….don’t you know, my friend? Why else do you think we are getting such a healthy dose of Sonny and Jason? This is the only reason I get irritated at this…seeing more and more of Sonny!!
It seems that Faison’s other son ( not Nathan) seeks revenge on his dada….everyone thinks it’s Peter….
Faison returns to claim his son, Nathan and do harm to Liesl ( he clocked her outside at Anna’s doorstep) and anyone in his path. I had suspected as much even before Nathan’s paternity was disclosed….that Liesl needed to run for the hills…
I have waited for Faison for a long time….I am happy!! Maybe he will go after Sonny this time…..on Pier 54?

naaaa…I think it’s the new publisher at Aurora. (He almost looks like Ryan Paevy. Well, not really but they could definitely play brothers!) And it fits; he’s in publishing (and the son is a writer), he’s taken an interest in Lulu’s mode of bringing Faison out of hiding, etc.

It’s probably him. And yet, it seems so obvious that maybe it’s not. Maybe…Britt is really a boy and she’s his other son! Too much? 😉

Is it time for February sweeps yet? Cuz this is one hot storyline, strap yourselves in for a wild ride when Nathan is forced to team up with his half bro Peter (aka Heindrich) to bring down the bio daddy or evil. Not sure how Kim fits into this but I was certain she would play into the 2 Jason’s reveal. Will Robert show up to protect his beloved Anna from the clutches of Caesar? We can only hope Tristan Rogers comes along for the ride. Smart to pull Drew and Sam from the canvass for a few weeks while this drama plays out. Now that we know Brit is safely tucked away, perhaps she has met Peter and has pertinent information behind why Faison is back to torment the residents of Port Chuck once again. Welcome back, Mr. Hove. We have been waiting for your triumphant return.

I recall some things Tristian said that would seemingly make it unlikely that he’ll return if Frank is still in charge.

Satan

Frank will not be in charge much longer. He just made a huge mistake…

His former partner Ron paid the price for messing with Luke. He will pay the price for screwing over Laura.

Steve

Tristan rightfully complained that Robert was written poorly during his last few appearances. Frank would need to apologize and promise that Robert would play a prominent role in the storyline.

And everything he said is true I truly pulled it will not watch another episode you treat Genie Francis the icon of this soap the way FV did he is no better then Guza and sorry MW is not all that great you just proved what we knew you treat women like dirt under your finger nails and SB and MB and the spitter LW can truly stuff it go sell some food drin Steve gosh I am livid that Genie got treated this way again

Genie has a legit gripe so enjoy I saw my last episode and I talked to two journalists and no Genieis deasted

Did I miss something? I just assumed Genie was going on one of her vacations and Spencer breaking his legs was the way to write her off the canvas for a while?

Oh, believe me that bridge was burned a long time ago. My Former Employer still holds a grudge over that bet we made concerning the mortal named “Job”.

And no, that was not an “Arrested Development” reference, though that show was a big hit here in Hell.

Okay, let me be clear: Faison with Anna is magic. They both portray the vulnerabilities so well with each other. With the news that Ryan Paevy is leaving GH as Nathan West, I tend to think he will be a casualty of Faison. Anything with Obrecht I am down for because I adore watching Kathleen Gati. The only thing I am not up for watching is boring Burton with his monotone voice and deadpan expression whining about how his life was stolen. BooHoo. Please Faison, take him out too. Or if not put him in a coma for three years , we won’t notice, watching him act is like watching someone in a coma anyway. GH is trying to get some thunder back. They have their work cut out for them. In case you haven’t noticed, DAYS is slaughtering you in stories. I love GH and their cast but someone made a bet on one actor who isn’t skilled at carrying a story on his shoulders. I LOVE the fact that they gave Maura West a stand alone episode. It was great but the writing was not good. Maura deserves greatness. Billy Miller has no where to go in this role as Drew. I mean he has no background. He has some woman he was intimate with who got pregnant. Oscar is a great partner to Drew. They work well together but the story is not interesting enough. They have turned Carly into an irrational crazed stalker of Jason Morgan. I’m sorry but if I was married to any one who loved another man more than myself, see ya later! Carly says she loves Sonny but she certainly seems to be all lusty for JM. It’s a little upsetting to be honest. I want to see GH get it together. I love the cast, always have, they are talented for sure. We just need stronger stories. Fingers crossed with this Faison story but if my gut is telling me one thing they are going to take it in the JM direction and that would be all wrong. Okay my connection is dying here so I will sign off and say…..bring it GH give it your best

Ryan isn’t leaving GH; he’s taking time off to be in a film.

Love it! Faison is one of GH’s best baddies and he’s one of the few, if not the last, of the remaining evil characters from days of yore.

I’m hoping they don’t kill him off. It’s nice to know he may come back for a diabolical visit every now and then.

Annnnnnd…is it possible that Peter (his assumed other son) is Anna’s? I don’t remember them ever sleeping together but who knows how they may explain that away. I can see them having Anna or Alex, give birth to a son and like Dr. O…hide him from Faison. Crazy; but could be crazy interesting!

The Best New from all of these is the we get to see more of Kathleen Gati’s acting. She is great.. I hope we hear her sing a love song to her beau!!

I assumed it was only a matter of time with how often his name has been mentioned on the show as of late. Faison is the best villain in GH history, in my opinion, with Helena Cassadine being a very close second. So any chance to see the wonderful Anders Hove on screen again is a real treat.

My only regret is that his returns to the show are never long enough, and it sounds like this time will be a short visit again. I’d love to see him hang around for a while, and really wreak some havoc on Port Charles. But I guess it’s difficult schedule wise with him living in Denmark, so I’ll take whatever I can get.

Looking forward to seeing what they have in store. Really enjoying GH lately since Chris Van Etten took over as co-head writer.

I’m not surprised that the character of Faison is coming back because he could play a part in a lot of stories.For example he was the one who shot Jason in 2012 and pushed him into the water.So Faison may have answers that Jason needs.Plus Faison has history with Anna and Obrecht.For example Faison may not be happy with Obrecht keeping the fact that Nathan is his son from him.

dan

He’s a great actor and Faison is a great soap villain. But the best part will surely be more great scenes with Finola! She brings it every second she’s on screen! She’s perfection!

Shay

And with Dr. O.!!! Kathleen Gati’s latest scene with Finola’s Anna got that ball rolling off to what shall be an undoubtedly raucous finish when they finally encounter Liesl’s once-beloved Cesar!!! Seems like Obrecht’s magnificent obsession with this brilliant criminal mastermind will at last come to an end when he finishes off their son….with that brutal act, the spell this “Maniacal Dane” has held over Liesl to keep her in thrall over the decades shall be forever broken! Better late than never…..

Do you thing Liesel and Faisy will do the Romeo and Juliet thing?

Not this time, Timmmbo! I think Liesl’s going to be spitting fire when it comes to her once-dear Cesar!!! He’s finally gone to far this time, even for Dr. O.!!!!

Anders Hove is a great actor. I wish his character wasn’t a villain & he could get to know Nathan & Maxie & be a grandfather to their baby.

My three favorite villains of all time on GH, Faison, Anthony Zaccharo and Grant Putnam.

Agreed, and while we’re lucky to have Grant weighing in periodically on various threads, it would be great to spring him from the sanitarium.

Anna has her hands full right now but it would be nice to have Grant back on the show. He was so good!

Reed

Timmm, you’re fast becoming one of my favorite posters. Your “#Genie’s Times Up!” from the other thread was a classic and I’m sure it was said for comedic affect, supporting your earlier posts which I couldn’t necessarily disagree with. But make no mistake, this was a cluster-f of epic proportions. Genie Francis finally gets a story at the end of her 3-year contract and then Frank, in his infinite wisdom offers her recurring status? I so wanted to inject a testosterone-based analogy into the Genie thread, but I didn’t think the readers would appreciate the Eli Manning comparison. P.S. both the coach and GM were fired two days after sitting the Giants QB, ending the 210 consecutive games started streak of this 2-time Super Bowl MVP and future Hall of Famer. Disrespecting a legend is never a winning strategy and I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.

Timmm

Thanks Reed. I love the Eli Manning comparison. Brilliant! So maybe Frank goes? I dont know, he seems like a weasel who kisses up to ABC to do their dirty work. In other words, ABC didnt want her to stay.

No offense to the actor, but I am sick of Faison. What more can the hairball sociopath do that he hasn’t done before? Only difference is this time Frau Olbrecht is not enamored with him.

The recycling of Faison represents another attempt to get up ratings for a short-term period of time. That’s how GH manages this show now. Brings back this one or that one for a bit of time. Now it’s the guy with bad hair. If a troll would be willing to speak to Faison, perhaps something could be done with his hair. Seriously, I’ve had my fill with GH’s recycling characters. I thought we were seeing some stability with Genie Francis being put in the forefront. Now, with their decision to let her go, I’ve become totally disgusted with this show and its antics with casting and its desire to focus on storylines of violence.

Chrystie_Delancey
Chrystie_Delancey

As I watch today’s scenes with Anna and Faison, I have to wonder WHY the writer’s feel the need to continue to torture and haunt Anna with the sociopath. You can literally see her quaking as he touches her. It is akin to watching Sigourney Weaver in ALIEN with that thing above her. Why do women have to be continued to be mentally tortured? In light of the state of things, you would think that the writers would stop torturing Anna with this monster.

And back to my original comment, what more can Faison do? The last time that Anna and Robert had him in the barn that should have been it. What more can they do? That is what I don’t understand. Just let the character die/leave already and come up with a new one.

I hate to see the acotor Anders Hove (Cesar Faison) leaving GH he has been playing a bad guy for so long and made the soap very entertaining always a clever guy that covers his tracks he is like a fox or a wolf.He has been on General Hospital ever sence I was a young girl I do hope their is away they could bring him back threw false death do to a son wanting him dead and maybe someone helping him but we shall see.General Hospital is always full of surprises and lots of drama and action it is never boring this show has more action than any of the soaps and has been airing for many years ever sence my moms time that she remembers.Keep up the good work to all you good actors on GH I am you’r greatest fan.

Donna

Please keep Anders Hove (Cesar Faison) playing his role he makes General Hospital exciting even if his death was a fake do to a son wanting to kill him do to a revenge and hoping that they can have it as someone helping him out cheating death.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
