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!

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… Read more »

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.

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

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!

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

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

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

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!

Kelly Thiebaud Departing General Hospital and Heading Back to ‘Station 19’

Kelly Thiebaud is now set to reprise her role of Eva Vasquez, on ABC’s primetime drama, Station 19 and thus the Daytime Emmy winner will exit her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne on General Hospital.

According to Deadline, Thiebaud will be part of the cast for the series 6th season, which premieres on October 6th.

Previously, Kelly appeared on the show’s 3rd season when in story, as the widow of firefighter Rigo Vasquez (Rigo Sanchez), she had an affair with her husband’s colleague Jack Gibson (Grey Damon) that resulted in total chaos.

In a tease for Thiebaud’s return, ABC shared, “Misery loves company and Eva finds solace with someone from her past.”

Kelly has played GH’s Britt on and off since 2012. She won her first Daytime Emmy this past June for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her performance.

Look for Kelly to exit her GH role in November, while a rep for the soap shared that the actress will be leaving by year’s end.

What do you think of Kelly going to Station 19 and departing General Hospital? How do you think GH will deal with her exit? Will tragedy befall Britt with her living with Huntington’s Disease? Will she be written-off the canvas, leaving the door open for her return? 

Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out our conversation with Kelly from a year ago and then backstage at the Daytime Emmys following her victory,

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.
