He’s left the building…mostly his choice?…let go…he’s a good actor who seems destined for better things(GH or Days should snap him up but i think he could have a good shot at primetime or films)…he’ll move on and we should too!!!

“mostly his choice,” yes, but TPTB could have done more to keep him on the show. He deserved “outs” like other major actors get on the soaps, but they didn’t want to pay him what he’s worth.

At least with this situation, I’m not as upset as with the MM firing. Now THAT is unacceptable and may be the deal-breaker for me continuing to watch this show, which has become a crap-fest!

LMFAO! “Playing a bad guy smiling the whole time” lol too funny but he has grown on me, when I first started watching Y&R I used to say “he gotta go with his non acting self” lol but I started seeing as, he just has a different style of acting,,,, I guess lol

I guess it was anti-climatic; as he has been leaving so often. This time there wasn’t another one year extension. Great actor, appears to be a great guy and partyier! He will be missed, but in soaps this is just par for course.

He would be a perfect Jason recast on GH…. maybe Jason is in a coma and wakes up as Jason pre-mob??!!! In any case he would be better there than on Y&R. With Jill Farren Phelps in charge, Y&R is unwatchable period!

Why ANYONE would hire Jill Farren Phelps after she almost ruined General Hospital is beyond me. It makes me think CBS wants their number 1 soap to fail.

Quetta

Is this why it has been so boring and drawn out lately? I’m a slightly new fan. I almost stopped watching when I saw Phyllis go into another coma before she could tell what Sharon did. They are just dragging the situation out too long for me..

Well I’d like to wish Billy Miller good luck for his future projects he played the part well espicially when he argues with Victor I will miss that because since the role will be un-recasts with David Tom there will be no more arguments and figthing with Victor. I welcome back David Tom in the role and I am looking forward with future storyline involving Billy who will end up with Chloe or someone new.

Billy, you are adorable and an amazing actor. I’m very sorry that you’re leaving the show as you made the role of “Billy” so much fun. Loved your scenes – my interest piqued when you were on the screen. Just watched the new “Billy” – but quickly found that I had no interest in the new actor. Nothing wrong with him but he’s not you. You have the whole package. Wish you a blessed life – do the right things and take care of yourself. I will really miss you on the Y&R.

Will miss you so much Billy. Your a wonderful and very enjoyable actor to watch. On another note when the Hell is Phyllis going to wake up! Stories drag on too long. I hope Jill doesn’t keep doing a number on the Young and Restless. I would hate to see it taken off the air after it has been number one for to long. Best of Luck Billy and God Bless.

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.
