Three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Sarah Brown, is in most unusual circumstance which finds her nominated again, but for the role of Claudia Zacchara on General Hospital, a show where she previously won three Emmys for her original portrayal of Carly Corinthos.  Also adding to the interest is Brown now plays Aggie Jones on the hit CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful. It’s a interesting set-up for sure,  and in this new feature with TV Guide Magazine out today, Brown details she will be sitting with her B&B cast, and wishing her GH peeps well!

We also learn that coming up on B&B on June 17th, Aggie will finally get confirmation of what she has been suspecting all along, that Nick’s (Jack Wagner) wife, Bridget (Ashley Jones) slept with Owen (Brandon Beemer) and is pregnant. In fact, it goes one step further the next day when Aggie spews it all to Nick!   Here are a few excerpts from the feature:

Brown on if she fails to take home the Lead Actress prize this year: “I’ll be contacting people to break some kneecaps.  I still have my connections in Port Charles.  (Laughs):

Brown on the killing-of of GH baddie, Claudia Z.: “I think the character had gone a little too far. And maybe they felt she wasn’t redeemable. I’m just making this up as I go along because I really don’t know their motivation in letting me go because I still had quite a lot of time left on my contract. This question has me on a slippery slope…”

Brown on B&B’s Aggie’s attraction to Nick. Is it fatal?:   “I think she has a really healthy attraction to him. Of course, he is a married man so I guess it’s not that healthy but it’s human. She has been through a huge ordeal and this man stepped up and cared for her. She has respect for Nick, and I think Agnes would have let bygones be bygones if she had not found out about Bridget and Owen. It’s not really an obsession as much as a deep love for someone she appreciates. She doesn’t feel Bridget is good enough for Nick. Otherwise, I don’t think Agnes would be making a play for him.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Has a Feeling She Has ‘A Daughter Out There’

The latest promo for this week’s episodes of General Hospital has been released and from the looks of it – and a key episode set to air on Wednesday April 8th – the mystery surrounding if Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter is alive, and if so who is it, looks to be kicking into high gear.

There is that necklace that Nina is looking at in the promo, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) who seemingly now is being given an opportunity to work with Nina thus getting closer to her who notices the necklace, and then there is Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who many have thought could actually be Nina’s daughter given their original tense relationship.

And coming up on Wednesday, look for a special episode where the show looks at Carly’s (Laura Wright) past with her adoptive parents Frank and Virginia Benson before she came to Port Charles in 1996.

Look for Eden McCoy (Josslyn) to play a young Carly, Cynthia Watros to play Virginia, James Patrick Stuart to play Valentin, and Willa Rose to play a young Nelle.  What will we learn from that episode?

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.
