BREAKING NEWS: Finola Hughes Put On-Contract At General Hospital!

Courtesy/E!

Courtesy/E!

General Hospital’s man-in-charge Frank Valentini, certainly knows he struck gold with the return of Finola Hughes to her Daytime Award winning role as Anna Devane!  And today, he announced via his twitter page that he has signed Hughes to a contract! So unlike many of the fan favorites who have been ushered in for a short time to Port Charles, and then been shown the front door due to storyline dictated moves, Hughes is staying put!

Valentini tweeted, ” As for the GH casting news, thanks for waiting.  I am so excited to announce the lovely Finola Hughes is now on contract!”

Fans have been clamoring to know what Valentini was referring to when he tweeted that he was  “Crossing the T’s and I’s” with someone to appear on the show a few weeks back.   From his new tweet, do you think Hughes is who he was referring to along along? Or, is there still someone else?

Whatever the case, we are thrilled that soap fans will get to see Finola’s remarkable run as Anna continue as she deals with the fallout from the “death” of her daughter Robin, and deepens her relationships with Luke Spencer and John McBain, whether it be personal or professional.  Stay tuned!

How do you feel about the Finola annoucement? Let us know!

AWESOME NEWS!!!

EXCELLENT! Nobody but NOBODY knows how to use soap history better that Frank and Ron. They know how to use the rich storylines and the characters that made the shows great! Landing Finola is a slam dunk to bring the show back to what it was and steer AWAY from the mafia stories. With Felicia coming back all the show need now is Laura, Scott, BOBBIE, Seand and Tiffany and LUCY COE and find a way to reserect Alan Q and we’re good to go!!! GREAT JOB MEN!!! You did it on OLTL you can do it to GH!

This is wonderful news, Finola has been awesome in her scenes with Patrick, Luke,Emma and even John. So happy she is staying on…in addition to the names that Joe said, would also like to see Lucky, Nic and Rik come back!

Yep, I hear you on bringing back some of the old characters like Scotty and Lucy Coe. Those were the days of GH! GH has been more interesting with Finola in it. She’s come back before but for short periods. A nice term contract role should help pull GH up and kick up the drama level.

By the way, I’ve really enjoyed Soapnet’s late nite oldies reruns of AMC, OLTL and GH. Does anyone know if there are episode guides to these shows? I see no info on Soapnet beyond the schedule.

It was recently reported the KS/Scott Baldwin will not be returning to GH as of yet.

Great News! I love her and she really is a good actress and she proves there is life after 50. But I will be honest just a platonic friendship with Luke please!!!!! John McBain I see them leaning more towards Sam with him just a guess from Michael Easton’s comments in interviews I do not think they are bringing anymore OLT L characters over.

Finola Hughes on contract with GH! Welcome home, Finola, Welcome Home! Finally, someone doing the right thing by GH fans! Great news all the way around. This gives me hope that the new regime at GH really does care about the show and, it’s history and it’s fans!

Finally, someone got it right! Finola has been and is a strong, lovely, sensitive actress. She really doesn’t seem like she changed at all after all these years. What a welcome addition to GH. Now, they have to give her story to keep her there..Don’t mess this up guys……

Good move, Frank. So glad to hear this news. I am also glad to see law enforcement front and center on this show. Hopefully, the lifetime incarceration of Sonny is not too far on the horizon.

Good news, great move by GH. Love Finola! It’s just a shame they couldn’t have also signed Tristan Rogers to a contract when he was around, as well.

excellent news finola hughes is a great actress. general hospital made a really smart move in signing her to a contract. now bring back jack wagner to a contract.

Christine

I am beyond happy that Finola Hughes is on contract. I LOVE her. What a timeless beauty! So happy that I will get to be seeing her more often.

But I strongly doubt that was the BIG signing news because Finola was already working. It had to be someone that wasn’t on the set yet. I had heard it was Melissa Archer, but rumor is that she does not want to do daytime anymore. So many rumors. I just take everything with a huge boulder of salt. Who could it be? I think everything depends on HOW long GH is saved. If it lasts through the summer, that is one scenario and certain talent would be called to wrap it up. If it were to last through December or another year, well then you can take your time (i.e., Tristan Rogers, Kimberly McCullough, Jonathan Jackson, Genie Francis) and you don’t have to be in such a hurry to wrap things up to give every one their happy ending, so to speak, because the talent has other obligations.

TR

Love MA, but Natalie needs to be kept as far away from John McBain as possible. I hope they don’t screw that up…

This is awesome news…I’ve been enjoying watching Finola work her magic as Anna. She gives a powerful performance no matter who she’s in scenes with. I like that they have Anna & McBain as former colleagues & look forward to more of their sleuthing together. Thanks to Frank Valentini for signing her on!

Finola is in a class with Erica Slezak on OLTL. She truly does improve everybody she’s in a scene with. Michael Easton was one of my least favorite actors on OLTL…he always seemed to be sleepwalking through his scenes…but on GH I’ve seen some life in him…especially with Finola! This is great news for GH!

I am one of those folks who have waited nearly a decade to see Finola back on GH and back in true Anna form. I’m so excited to not only see her on contract now, but I am very happy the way she’s been written since her return. The woman can turn mush to gold, but it’s wonderful that she’s had some really great stuff to work with! I really look forward to see what comes next for Anna as she deals with life without Robin (for now) and life back in Port Charles. Kudos to the GH brass for recognizing that you need the best to get this show back on track!

Olivia Oneda

This is the best news to come out of ABC daytime in ages! Love Finola. She is an amazing actress and has the best sense of comedic timing. I’m enjoying watching the lighter side of Anna and Luke especially after the heartwrenching scenes she had for weeks on end after Robin “died”.

Finola Hughes back on GH is the sole reason I am watching this show again. It has a long way to go to be really good, but my God some of ther scenes have been so fantastic. Once again, with her, we have been taken on a roller coaster ride through emotionville. She has ripped our hearts out and she has made us laugh. If GH had been willing to keep this caliber of talent around from the get-go, they might not be in the mess they are in today.

Christy

Did you see the post that Matthew Ashford & Sarah Brown were let go from Days?

Not that I’ve watched Days, but now GH can bring Matthew Ashford back ! He’d fit in even better now that he’s GH & OLTL alumni. He was Drew Ralston on OLTL 1982 – 1983, Tom Hardy on GH 1995 -1997, and then again on OLTL as serial killer Dr. Stephen Haver from 2003 – 2004.

And boy, he and Kristina Wagner had some hot scenes together when Tom Hardy was dating Felicia!

Ms. Brown could come back again as a 3rd character – but let’s not make her a mob related character this time! ha!

Yay Finola!! So happy! 🙂

GH’s Eden McCoy Chats on Tackling the Role of Young Carly, Josslyn’s love life, and Her Co-Stars

The rivalry between Carly (Laura Wright) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) has deep-rooted history in the past, not just the present, as viewers learn today on a special episode of General Hospital.  In it, we go back to the 90s, before Carly stepped foot in Port Charles.  This gave Eden McCoy, who usually plays Carly’s on-screen daughter, Josslyn Jacks, the chance to play a young Carly as fans of the ABC daytime drama series also see that the episode sheds come clues to a story that will play out in the present in the weeks and months to come.

McCoy got the opportunity to work with a different set of players than her normal scene partners in Port Charles in the episode – Cynthia Watros (Nina), James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) and young Willa Rose (young Nelle), who comprise the Benson ‘family’ in the flashbacks.

However, while Eden got the chance to travel back to the 90s, Josslyn is also in the dark in the present to that kiss shared by her best friends, Trina (Sydney Mikala) and Cameron (William Lipton).   If that lip-lock came to light to Joss, will that finally get her to admit she may feel more than friendship with Cam?

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Eden to discuss: the opportunity to play young Carly, having Laura Wright as her on-screen mom, and going to battle on-screen with her good friend, Chloe Lanier, plus if she would like to share more screen-time with Josslyn’s dad, Ingo Rademacher (Jax), and of course, the burning question, who has Josslyn’s heart? Is it Cameron? Find out when you read on as to what Eden shared below.

On today’s April 8th episode of GH, we see you portraying a young Carly.  Tell me when and how you found out that you were going to play Carly, and what the experience was like for you taping those scenes?

EDEN:  It was really one of my favorite experiences at GH, hands down.  I think if I had to choose favorite episodes, this would be this one for sure. My other favorites prior to this have been: the fight scene with Nelle, the dance scenes I did, and the fake drunk scenes with William.  Those were all so great.  I found out that I was going to do this episode and play a young Carly from Laura Wright.  I ran into her on set for blocking.  We weren’t even working together that day, and she’s like, “Oh, I’ve been told that you’re going to play a young me in an episode,” and then she literally walked away – because she had to work.  So, I was like, “What?”  It was kind of this thing hanging in the air, and I rushed to tell my mom, because I was so excited.  I didn’t get the script until maybe a month after Laura told me.  I didn’t want to ask more about it before then, because I kind of wanted to be surprised, too. Then, when I got the script and read it, I was completely blown away.  Then, when I got the news that Cynthia Watros was going to play Carly’s mom and that James Patrick Stuart was going to play Carly’s dad, I mean, I just about had a heart attack! Those are two actors that I’ve watched and admired so much and haven’t worked with a lot.  So, it was this perfectly gift-wrapped opportunity to get to know my fellow castmates and dive into a whole other character.  Everyone was so involved in that episode.  Look at the set design, for one thing.  You can totally tell that it transported us into the 90s.  Everyone did an amazing job with that style of architecture ….everybody had been researching it …everybody pretty much except for me as I lived through the 90s!  The wardrobe was one of my favorite things ever, because the 90s, for me, is my favorite era of fashion.  I feel like my own wardrobe is heavily inspired by the 90s.  I have vintage pieces; my favorite jeans are 90s Levis. I watched Friends and obviously was obsessed with it.  The wardrobe team did an amazing job focusing on all of the 90s trends with the cardigans and the clogs and the jelly shoes and all of that.  I have three outfits in the episode, and we literally named them “Monica”, “Rachel”, and “Phoebe” after the women on Friends.  It was so much fun.

Photo: JPI

What’s your take on what happened in the episode; as we learn about Carly’s troubled-past with her adoptive parents, and her past with Nelle?

EDEN:  It starts as a look into a young Carly’s everyday life.  She gets home from a job interview.  She is looking for work, and she gets the job, and Virginia and Carly are talking.  However, the conversation turns into how Carly wants to leave home, and have a very different life than Virginia, but she needs money to do it.  So, she leaves her mom, Virginia, to go find Frank, her dad, who, by the way, is a complete turnoff of a dad.  She thought he was going to have some money, and she could be rich, and get it from him, and move to New York, and see the world because that’s her overall goal.  Carly is a very passionate, goal-driven person as we know, so she goes to see Frank.  It will be a heart-wrenching moment for Carly as a character; and you will see how Nelle factors into this.   All of this in the past shows the internal conflict that Carly has towards Nelle as a person and as a character.  It’s not just that Nelle came into her life and hurt her kids and hurt her family, but it’s because it’s that desperate need for validation that Carly had growing up.  I think, she has had this resentment towards Nelle, because of it.

How old were you supposed to be in the flashbacks as young Carly?

EDEN:  I was playing like 18-19 years old, and Nelle was around 6.  Willa Rose was such an adorable little actress.  She and James were so cute together, and James was phenomenal.  He just went 110% on this, and it was so, so fun to work against that.  Every take was different.  James was walking at this pace, or he was eating in this scene, and he totally took it to the place that I knew that he would take it.  Same with Cynthia!  Cynthia was amazing.   I’ve watched them together since Cynthia first came on the show as Nina, and I’ve watched James forever, so I totally scored.

Photo: ABC

Has Laura Wright seen your portrayal of Carly yet?

EDEN:  I’m super excited to see what she has to say about it.  Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) and I were discussing it day-of taping. We were kind of dissecting Laura’s mannerisms so that I could kind of plug them in to my performance. We used when Laura as Carly tucks her hair behind her ear, and Frank was like, “Oh, yeah!  Do that!”  I’ve grown up with Laura, and watching her, and acting against her, and people clearly compare us all the time and are like, “That’s insane.  Do you try to do that on purpose?” It’s like, “No, I’ve just been with her since I was 12, almost every day.”

You realize when working and talking with Laura that she truly gets and understands her art and acting in this genre.  She’s really one of the best there’s ever been in soaps.  She can dissect a scene and understand it from different points of view, etc.

EDEN:  Oh my God, I know.  She’s phenomenal to watch, and I am not immune to that whatsoever.  It hits me every time I see her act.   She’s just been the best teacher.  The comments I get the most are: how much I resemble her looks wise for one, but also acting wise.  So, I’m so excited to see what people have to say following the airing of this episode.

What do you think about Josslyn’s combative relationship with Nelle?  I loved on today’s episode that we got to see the scenes where Josslyn clocked Nelle again!

EDEN:  I would love to slap Nelle again!  Chloe is one of my closest friends on that set.  Even though we haven’t worked together as much as we used to, we are still very close, and I learned a lot from her.  Scenes with her are always so juicy.

Photo: ABC

Where do you think Josslyn is at this point in her love life?  Is she still really into Dev (Ashton Arbab)? Does she truly loves Cameron, but can’t admit it to herself? 

EDEN:  I think that’s it. With Dev, he was an intriguing character with a very different background than Josslyn.  They say opposites attract, and I think that goes along with this story a little bit.  He’s just something that’s new, and someone who she is intrigued by, and I think that’s realistic.  I know that’s happened to me in my love life before.  I’m not sure where it’s really going to go between Dev and Josslyn.  Then for Cam, I think she doesn’t want to admit the feelings that she has for him to herself because that’s a whole big can of worms. I think she feels that once she admits that it might – not necessarily ruin their friendship – but taint it.  Cam is such a safe place and such a home for Josslyn.  I feel like if she were to admit that to herself, she’d be like, “Oh, no.  I’m going to make this uncomfortable and weird, and I can’t lose Cam as a friend.”  That’s always kind of been where her head is at, but I think as she spends more time with him, her feelings become more and more clear.  You never really know what’s going to happen, and I don’t think she’s set on anything.  Teenagers are just all over the place with feelings, and one day they feel this and one day they don’t.  So, it’s always such fun to play because I know some fans are dying to see Cameron and Josslyn get together that and some people don’t want to see that.  It’s fun to hear everybody out and to hear everyone’s opinions on it.  For me, I just hope it can be something fun to watch.  That’s always the goal.

Photo: ABC

So now Trina has shared a kissed Cam, and Josslyn doesn’t know that yet.  What do you think her reaction is going to be when she finds out? 

READ MORE
GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin's World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

EDEN:  It will be interesting to see how the writers do that when she does find out, because Trina has been a great friend to Josslyn, and Josslyn wants to be a great friend back, and of course, Joss is a great friend to Cam.  These are her two best friends.  She doesn’t really want to be anything but supportive.  I feel there is going to be a lot of internal struggle with that because I think that action is probably going to make her realize, and come to terms with some feelings that she has probably been avoiding, for sure.

Do you think that Josslyn has truly moved on with her life following her last boyfriend, Oscar’s heartbreaking death, so that she can welcome and accept new love into her life?

EDEN:  I think she’s moved on, at least I hope so!  That’s a pain that she’ll take with her for the rest of her life, and an experience that she’ll always have in her back pocket. That’s great as an actor … to have had a deep, influential experience because you can bring that into certain scenes and make them stronger.  Right now, I think she’s just trying to be normal and feel normal things, and that’s where I hope that her story will continue to go.  Life goes on, and we have awesome teenage characters that I’m happy to be a part of and working with.

Photo: ABC

Whenever the fans have seen William Lipton and you together, they have noticed that you get along so well. What can you say about William?

EDEN:   We do get along so well.  William is the best.  He’s really like a sibling.

Would you like to see more scenes between Jax and Josslyn? Don’t you think he should be more involved with his biological daughter’s life?

EDEN:  Yes!  From day one of meeting Ingo five years ago, he just made it so comfortable for me.  We have had a complete connection.  We share so many similar traits.  For instance, we both love the beach and we have a similar drive.  I will say that our relationship outside of the scenes is what makes those scenes what they are and what makes them fun to watch, and why when you’re watching, you feel like, “How is this not real?”  So, that’s why he is one of my all-time favorite scene partners.

Photo: JPI

Your mom was, and is, a big GH fan, right?

EDEN:  Yes, she grew up watching GH in her sorority house, and her two crushes were Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher), and I’m their kid on the show!  I remember when I auditioned for Josslyn.  I was given a fake script with a fake character name on it, so, we didn’t really know what my family tree looked like, or anything.  When my mom saw Maurice and Ingo in person for the first time, and I remember her freaking out.  I can’t even imagine what it was like for her.  My mom was just as excited as me to have this opportunity.

Are you at home quarantining, and taking care of yourself during this COVID-19 pandemic that we all find ourselves facing together? How’s that been going for you?

EDEN:  It’s going good.  I’m not complaining about staying in bed. (Laughs)  No, it’s been fun just trying new things and spending time with the family. You know, I’m usually so busy that it’s nice to have a little down time for a minute, but I naturally like to stay present and connect with people on social media, et

What are the fans saying to you most on social media that they want for Joss? 

EDEN:  I am hearing a lot about Cam.  It’s a big, “Is that going to happen?  Is that not going to happen?  Team Cam/Team Not Cam.”  That’s always fun because I love to have rivalries.  That means that people are invested in the story.  I get a lot of Jax things, like, “Where’s Jax?  We need more Jax and Josslyn,” and I completely agree.  However my dream, (and I think what a lot of people want to see) is Josslyn’s rebellion and gearing away from the goody-two-shoes person she is for a minute.

Photo: JPI

That would be in-line and typical for the daughter of Carly, right?

EDEN:  Yeah, that’s what I’m saying.  When I hear about what Carly had done at my age and in the past, I’m like, “I have that DNA.”   Carly had a very painful upbringing with not a lot of parental supervision and support.  She had no father figure growing up, and Josslyn has had two. That really shapes a person and makes them who they are, but I do feel like with all of the pain the Josslyn has gone through; some kind of off-the-rails moment would be fun to play and will be hopefully in her future.

So, what did you think of Eden’s performance of young Carly on today’s episode of GH? Do you want Josslyn to end up romantically with Cameron or someone else? Do you think Josslyn should display a more rebellious side given that she is Carly’s daughter? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

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?

Now below watch the latest teaser from GH, and let us know if you think Nina will finally figure out who her real bio-daughter is via the comment section below.

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.
