Bree Williamson Ends Her Run On General Hospital; But Will Claudette Be Back Sooner Than Later?

Bree Williamson has wrapped her story arc on General Hospital as Claudette.  After Claudette dropped her daughter Charlotte into the hands of the child’s real bio-dad, Griffin Munro (Matt Cohen), Claudette hightailed it out of town as fast as she could to escape the clutches of Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart).  Only Valentin conveniently ended up on the seat next to her on the airplane she was on to make her great escape from Port Charles.

The talented actress told Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, that she was actually only slated for a shorter length of time on GH, but the powers-that-be had asked her if she could stick around for a month or two.  Bree related that it was the perfect timing for her.

As for if viewers will see more Claudette down the line, Bree enthused, “She’ll be back.”  She added, “And I’m absolutely open to that.”

So, would you like to see more Bree on GH, and watch Claudette stir the pot for the characters on the canvas with another return?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Love claudette. She needs a better story.

I don’t know what purpose Claudette would serve, except to come collect her daughter when it’s safe to do so. I, certainly, do not miss her. Where is she? What did Valentin do with/to her? is she some kind of use to him? A prize of sorts? Is it possible for Valentin to be a secret agent? Is that why he is so familiar to Anna? What I proposed weeks ago could still be possible. Anna and Valentin were lovers. Don’t laugh, LOL. Why not? It’s GH. Is Griffin the product of that illicit love? Another scenario is; Valentin was… Read more »

So, if there was an embryo which belonged to Lulu, I give credit to Aria. She was the first to put two and two together. Kudos, Aria. Claudette was the surrogate.
Lulu is the mother. But, who’s the daddy; Valentin, or Stavros?

This can be the most confusing of all the soaps…havent been well lately again and havent watched everyday…i see some improvements to GH but the stories still seem a bit disjointed and not well thought out in advance-like lets write day to day instead of planning out a synopsis months ahead…im still hoping Dr. 0 and Valentin have a connection-Nathan-and would hope they run into each other soon!

I really hope a baby doesn’t exist between Stavros and Lulu. The idea of that grosses me out because it means Stavros would have produced kids from a mother-daughter duo during his lifetime. (Laura and Lulu).

Im actually confused-shouldnt Charlotte be younger than Rocco ?…wasnt the embryo stolen around the time Rocco came into the picture or years before he was born…it seems it would had to be before Rocco was born and years earlier since Claudette is so much older but i thought the embryo was stolen when Stravos had Lulu?…im usually good at remembering most of this stuff but now im confused?

Celia
Guest
Celia

I have no timeline, Jimmy. I’m a newcomer. But, I was watching when Lulu was held captive by Stravos , who brainwashed her. Was there an embryo created then? But, how does Valentin come into play here? Was it his semen? Anyway, if this is what happened, then you are right….Charlotte should be younger. On the other hand, Charlotte is not ‘THE’ embryo, but simply, Claudette’s daughter in the ‘natural’ sense No one can blame you for not remembering the sequence of events, LOL. I am just as lost, as TPTB keep switching it up. Who knows. All the effort… Read more »

I like Miss Williamson but never could become invested with the character being inserted int story with other characters so new on an already crowded canvas. Having the stay be short term does not help matters.

mollie
Guest

I feel much the same way! Canvas way too overcrowded. Now, if Claudette is the surrogate for Lulu’s baby, she was useful. BUT, all the other story the writers crammed in about Claudette is way, way too much. I just couldn’t and didn’t care about that.

That said, Bree is a talented and beautiful actress.

I was very happy to hear Beautiful Brie was shoring up to Port Charles but she was unable to make anything of the monkey poo the writers threw at her.

I like when characters/actors can come and go as needed. On for a month or 2, off for 4 months, etc. It adds a bit of realism (yes, soaps are far from real). People come and go. I have friends who live out of state and I see them periodically. Ditto for family. It’s great that people could come and go as storylines and the actor’s schedule permits.

Aria
Guest
Aria

I agree bout having actors come and go as needed, this was a nice story arc for Bree and can be continued maybe down in the future. Not everyone has to come in and have a long term contract nor do they have to come in and considered a failure just because their characters don’t all blow up and become popular like their previous characters.

Bree has the same problem as Roger and Michelle, great actors with TERRIBLE characters! Who in the hell would EVER leave their child behind? That little girl is and will be traumatized indefinitely! Charlotte has always been with her mom and never knew her dad. AND we know GriFOON is NOT the father! Bree will have to come back to clear up the custody of “Her” child. It may even be Maxie’s? Once again, like Finn, Frank brought in a little toy named Bree [Not condescending the actress] and he made up ANY character to have another ex-soap star play… Read more »

Too funny, Timmmy…GriFOON. Please forgive me for reiterating, my friend; but, it is just so infuriating how TPTB continue to take liberties with the Church? Griffin’s banale conversation with Anna about deciding to be Charlotte’ s father and not the priesthood is ridiculous snd laughable. Once a RC priest steps out, especially after siring a child, can never go back to the priesthood. He will be excommunicated….stripped of the symbolic ‘priestly robes’. ‘They’ change the canon laws at will? I get exactly what you are saying. It’s nothing against Bree. It just annoys me to no end when a favorite… Read more »

As I have stated in the past, Griffin is a priest/doctor, he might not have common sense BUT we are not talking about someone dropping off a stray dog on your door step, who the hell wouldnt want to know the truth about a kid. ESPECIALLY since FRAUDette already lied to Nathan!

@Timmm… I’m with you … how could “any” mother do this..

I really have got to go with… she was “only” the carrier

which could bode well for drama.. when she returns

Claudette was embolden.. a charged act… I liked her…. was ready

Celia
Guest
Celia

Exactly, Timmmy. What makes Friffin so sure Charlotte is his? Because Claudette said so? How dumb can one get?
LOL: priest/doctor. Yeah, while he will always be a priest; he cannot do anything ‘priestly’….such as giving last rights to Carlos. So, that was a wash.

Actually, Ghlover, Bree was botn in Toronto ( where I studied for a few semesters at St. Michael’s a branch of Toronto U. Je ne pense pas qu’elle parle francais. She is very well-known there…. As you must know, and, contrary to popular belief, the only people who speak French in Canada (other than the Province of Quebec) are those who study the language in school. It is an elective subject. Not mandatory. Needless to say, I do agree. I would rather have Claudette ( with a stronger story) than Valerie. All the writers need to do is make Claudette… Read more »

Sign her to a contract! May be in the minority here, but Bree was outstanding in the role!

I don’t think for a minute that we’ve seen the last of Fraudette, and I certainly hope we haven’t! Given what Bree Williamson was able to achieve with the whole Jess/Tess/Bess/Wes mess on OLTL, it would be a shame not to put her to fuller use on GH. Fraudette’s villainy, at least thus far, is easily redeemable.

2 points 1. was the scene we last saw… with Valentin and Claudette INTERESTING ? i’m intrigued as to what happened when they got off the plane… incognito ? and to see if their was a rapport between the TWO “actors” a sizzling chemistry. 2. is she worth a screen partner for Griffin ? when you compare these points with what’s going on with other characters… storywise seems worth a look. I haven’t read a whole lot of support for this story is GH going to see what happens with Valentin and Nina first… what I’ve read.. is that this… Read more »

WOW there’s a mix of suave, finesse, classic, SEX, tall order that’s just the surface . James Patrick Stuart OWNS US ps: once again… this would be a great time , or is it… another last call, for Nancy Lee Grahn’ Alexis to step up to the plate.

She has to be back—there’s nothing better on soaps than an actress who can play a good bitch and Bree did it quite well. I loved her the second she came on the scene but i had always loved her work on OLTL so I knew I would enjoy her on GH.

I’m SO happy to hear about this!! No offense to the actress but the character never worked from day one! I’m glad GH seems to be tightening the cast a bit, hope that continues. I actually am liking Valentin this go around although I still don’t like Nina being thrown into his story.
So long Claudette, you will NOT be missed by me!

Bye Claudette! Story never worked from the get go! Happy to see GH cleaning up the canvas ….. Can we please permanently unload Jordan, Valerie and Nina on the next round? I’d unload Lulu too but guess some folks like her and she is L&L’s kid; just think Dante is so much more interesting without her!!

I like Bree and was looking forward to her on GH. Unfortunately, her appearances were scattered and short so I had zero investment in her character. She was unlike able from the beginning and also was portrayed to over-the-top as villainess…smirks, raised eyebrows and all. When she FINALLY seemed to have a sincere moment I felt a twinge of possible, future, maybe liking her. I’d welcome Bree back if Claudette had a story instead of a means to “deliver” a baby to Port Charles. Make her as bitchy as you want but with an inner soul to root for… With… Read more »

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
