Another bittersweet goodbye today for one of the most talented young actors in soaps!  Brandon Barash, who had announced that he was exiting General Hospital several weeks ago, today finished taping his last scenes at Johnny Zacchara!

Brandon shared his sentiments on Twitter a short time ago, relating, “Filmed my last scenes at GH today…quite the strange and surreal day. I’ll miss you, Johnny Z…see you in another life, brother.”

Next, Brandon’s announcement was followed-up by General Hospital’s head writer, Ron Carlivati’s tweet who said “@BrandonBarash We will miss you, Brandon. Good luck out there…but feel free to come back whenever you want! All the best…Ron”

So GH fans, Brandon’s time in Port Charles has officially come to an end.  We wish him all the best in his upcoming endeavors!  Now the question remains, how will Ron write Johnny off the canvas?  Share your thoughts!

either have jonny escape or keep him in prison, no more killing off characters to then bring them back from the dead. wish him the best and hope he does come back in the near future.

It’s a ‘soap’ ,bringing them back’ from the dead ‘ is a time honored tradition. I hope they never stop using the ‘Lazarus bit’.

I really like Brandon, he brings so much energy to his acting. If he doesn’t return to GH, I’d be happy to see him on AMC or OLTL!

He is at the age where wants to explore his possibilities, and good for him for doing so..

He has an open invitation to return, from RC….
Perhaps this not a forever good.bye..

Waiting for the announcement that he’s going to be joining his Port Chuck band mate, Steve Burton to “The Young and the Restless”.

How Dare Steve tell all his LOYAL FANS he was leaving to be with his family and then join The Young and Restless. What a slap in the face to us! I hope GH re-casts him and let Sam and Danny have the family they deserve.

It was a slap in the face to us. Never thought that in a million years that Steve Burton could hurt and betray his fans. Would have let it slide if an actor on “The Young and the Restless” had to take an emergency leave of absence where it was unknown how long it was going to take and the character couldn’t be written out. He did Jill Farren-Phelps a favor for subbing until that actor was able to return. It is going to be so hard to see another actor play Jason, but it this actor might make us say: “Steve Burton who?”

Good luck Brandon… you will be missed!!! You are very talented and you should do well… but please consider coming back sometime(s). Hope to see you soon!

Sounds like the door will remain open for a possible return? There were some possibilities for his Johnny character getting involved with Kristina in those prison scenes with them becoming a couple. Kristina becoming pregnant and seeing how Sonny would react in all this which i felt wouldve made a better storyline than Sonny just being involved in the Kate/Connie switcheroo which was kinda fun at first but has grown silly and tiresome with the too quick personality changes.

jim

But since Brandon and Lindsey are both leaving, Kristina can break Johnny out of prison, and runaway 2gether!

jim

Meanwhile Kristen A. can show up in town as Serena Baldwin, Micheal E. can show up as a Cassidine…Niks father? and Roger H. can be the new Steven Webber but prison lifes changed him and made him darker, moodier, and maybe a little unbalance…Roger H. had his best GH moments with Robin M.(Heather Webber) and for me them playing his crazy momma, and now him being a little more like her would be alota fun. But poor Olivia!

jim

Plus Eddie A., Kristens bro, could play the role of Morgan…

Wishing Brandon the best!
Too bad GH wrote Johnny Z into a corner; surely there was lots more to explore with this character..

Hope he comes back at some point. This was one of my favorite characters. Carly / Todd / Johnny was a great triangle that never really got off the ground.

Johnny can be redeemed now…

I wish just once I could have seen BB clean shaven and well dressed. He is such a hunk and a great actor. He’ll do very well.

He’s not really gone – he’ll just be in prison making license plates. He has an invitation to return, so . . . stay tuned.

Good luck Brandon!!! I will miss you.

I’m gonna miss Johnny, I always found his character to be very interesting and complex, more watchable and appealing than Sonny in my opinion. Maybe he’ll be back in a few years for new stories, once he’s out of jail? Brandon is a great actor and very easy on the eyes too. Kirsten Storms is one lucky gal!

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
