Yay!!! This is great news. Now I don’t have to worry about who will be leading the HW position over at OLTL….. We all have our gripes about different story lines, but I think OLTL has never been better. I will just be thrilled to see Trevor St. John, Bree Williamson, Florencia Lozano, Robin Strasser, Robert S. Woods, Hillary B. Smith…..and I would be over the moon, if OLTL would get Cathryn Hickland back!!!

NOONE in Llanview, Pennsylvania, has more rightly and publicly praised the talents and artistic prowess, and extraordinary accomplishments of Messrs. Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati than the great current United States Senator, Dorian Cramer Lord. Senator Lord, who many of us know left the position as Mayor of Llanview, Pennsylvania, because her country called her to public service in our Nation’s Capital (and who in past months, thus early departed OLTL, due to her then chronic back pain). But, the actress Ms. Strasser is fully recuperated now, and it is time PROSPECT PARK and TOLN. It is time for the… Read more »

Great news for OLTL fans. I am waiting for Todd, Tea, Bo, Nora and Jessica to sign on. If PP wants to do this right, they would be negogiating with Robin Strasser as we speak. I cant wait to see who else will come aboard.

So glad Frank will continue writing for OLTL!!!! Happy that he’s not going to GH instead. Suck on that Frons! I’m glad to see a lot of actors following over. I hope Dorian and Roxy come also. I hope Delphina will always be on the show (she cracks me up!). Victor needs to come back from the dead and fight with (and sometimes work with) Todd. And I agree that Catherine Hickman can come back as Lindsey. Hopefully with not having Frons and ABC breathing down their necks the show can do so much more and bring back people they… Read more »

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Mishael is a valuable member of the Y&R family and will be back on air soon to continue her journey as Amanda.”

Mosley spoke exclusively with Soap Opera Digest where she shared she spoke to Morgan before taking on the role: “It was great that I could talk with her and say thank you for leaving me such a wonderful path to follow. I also told her, ‘I’ll be happy when you’re healed and able to return.’”
