Yes – it’s ALWAYS a joy to have Brooklyn on.
Please don’t ever age her character – let her grow up on the show like Kimberly did.

She’s so cute, his kid. You’re right, Lisa….I love kids and seeing them grow on soaps warms the heart.
Kristen Alderson was one such child. We sort of ‘grew up’ together…..

Agree CeeCee & Lisa… Brooklyn is a delightful child, who is missed.

Hiya, Fanny,
I love Brooklyn….such a good, sweet little actress.would’t it be great if Emma stayed in PC for its longevity? We don’t see kids that age any more on GH….same goes for Spencer. Miss him, as well.

So happy to see this! She is a wonderful actress. Would like to see more of her though.

very happy Brooklyn is coming for a visit, wish she was coming back full time, in fact now that ABC got the rights of OLTL and AMC back, and they can mention characters from those shows, Anna can mention her twin Alex and maybe her twin has a “daughter”? or granddaughter? that looks just like little emma. Then she could be back full time, we can’t kill off Robin or Patrick thats just to unnecessary, but ok, i’m stretching it here, lol, i just wish she could stay longer…

Great to fill up Anna’s house with Emma and Griffin. I keep expecting a Duke return but Jelly are taking their sweet time with it.

Always happy to see her on the show! She interacts so well with all the other actors twice her age. And it’s always nice to see a child-actor who can act grow up on a show. it’s like watching a niece or nephew grow up.

I really look forward to seeing Brooklyn also. She’s one of the few young actors I truly like. She acts WITH the others, not just hamming it up to draw attention to herself. And she can handle heavy material with grace and professionalism. She’s a keeper.

Love her…adds a touch of realism to the show.

Your word is what counts. Always.

@Francesca…thanks Celia.

Excuse me?

Ummmm. No.

Excuse me, as in huh?
My dear child, I remember watching the first episode of General Hospital as a kid with my mother. I have also been on this site for years. I have possibly posted a handful of times. I read every single post.

I could not resist. Your milieu is pomposity. You lord it over everyone. Your word is law, come hail or high water. You pick on people, demean them and step on them, if your word is not followed. No one is allowed to disagree with you. The ones who seem to gravitate toward you are those who are like you, or are intimidated by you. Most avoid you.

I can sit back, read and watch it all unfold. It is quite humorous, you know.

My name is Francesca, not Celia. I am not in the habit of being devious. That is my name. It has been since birth. A place called Toronto. Have you heard of it? I am a naturalized American.

Try to be a little more charitable where others are concerned , and not so forceful and assuming. My brain does not work like yours. Surprisingly, Michael Fairman allows your blather to go through. How foes that work, exactly?

I am a happy-go-lucky person due to the fact that my heart is light, free of nasty thoughts. It feels wonderful.

Please keep in mind that I did not ask to be excused. I merely asked, what.

I finally have something nice to say about GH. I may come back to see her. She is a little doll, and not a bad actress.Reminds me of her soap mother as a child.I will have to dvr it, so I xcan FF the rest of the show.. Put her on camera with Sonny. I ff her also.

Just saw Brooklyn, Sunday on a Christmas Hallmark movie. She was outstanding, as usual.

Ya. Okay…you sound a tad unhinged and ummmm, Victorian. Step out of the timewarp speak you seem to be possessed by and get a grip. Amusing as it is. Now, bugger off…

Typically predictable. This is a democracy. The one who is unhinged is yourself. When someone is criticized for choosing to vote for a certain candidate speaks volumes.

I chose not to vote for either, but wrote in Pence. Neither candidate appealed to me. Iffy, both of them.

Having said that, what gives you the right to mete out insolence and insults? You sound like you voted for Mrs. Clinton. What does that say about you. Did anyone blast you for that, as you have so many on here. No one tried to take your civil rights from you.

No one, except for a few, stands up to your bullying. You do not scare me, child. You do not even make a dent. I am almost 60, and very proud to have gone through life without malice or impeding my fellow-human beings their freedoms, as you have. I have no enemies.

Victorian? Maybe. Nothing wrong with that. Actually, my grand babies tell me I am the coolest grandma.

Your mouth is foul with no manners of which to speak. Take a chill pill, ‘modern muse’. Good manners never go out of style, as Victorian as they are.

Happy Holidays!!

Dear ” Francesca” aka Celia, aka CeeCee. You’re way too transparent. And you STILL don’t get sarcasm! I was playing on words, LOL. I knew what you meant when u said “excuse me. And even your complaints are old.. You criticize and lash out when you think someone has “shamed” you.. then u bring up the fact you’re younger and people try to correct you, in your mind, because of that. Then you bring in your family “honor” and end up with you don’t know how Michael Fairman could let comments you don’t like get through. Thennnn…u start comolsining that your comnents aren’t being posted. It’s rather frightening actually how deeply you get into this that you have to devise other personas to attack. Get a new speech writer, change your identity to a guy, and then attack again. Ya never know…ya might get over on me next try. Wait a while though, otherwise it’ll be too obvious…again

Steve Burton Confirms ‘General Hospital’ Head Writer Switch Changed Jason’s Comeback Storyline

General Hospital viewers will see today, Monday, March 4th, the beginnings of the return storyline for Steve Burton and his character of Jason Morgan.

Just how did the recent head writing regime change at GH alter the plans for story for Jason’s comeback? As had been rumored, seems plenty. Back on January 22nd, it was revealed that Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor had been replaced by Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte. At that time, Burton had already signed-on to return to the daytime drama for the first time since being let go towards the end of 2021.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Steve confirmed that what we will see on-air is from the new head writers and that the direction of the story changed, “So apparently there was a whole different story planned and then the head writer switch happened and then they kind of rebooted (the story arc). I know Patrick (Mulcahey, one of the new head writers) a little bit, but I really know Elizabeth Korte (who was promoted to co-head writer).”

Burton added, “There’s no one in the building that loves that show, knows the history of the character, and is invested in it 100 percent than Elizabeth. There has never been a more deserved promotion, ever. Once I know that she was (one of the head writers), I was like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be good! I cannot wait.’ And it has been exactly that. Everything has been amazing.”‘

In addition, during an Instagram live on Monday with his podcast and comedy show partner, GH star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Burton also commented on the upcoming story arc which brings Jason back to Port Charles. Steve expressed, “The story is not going to disappoint. The scenes are super deep. Frank (Valentini, EP, GH)  and the new head writers took some time to really think this out.”

Burton, being a longtime veteran of the soaps, said Jason’s return is not just isolated to be about him. “Great story on daytime should involve a myriad of people across the board and where it effects everybody,” he shared. The popular fan favorite feels that this story delivers on all levels.

So, what do you think about the head writer change and how it prompted the plans for Jason’s return? Comment below.

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

Photo: JPI

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.

THIS WEEK on GENERAL HOSPITAL: “He’s Back” as Jason Returns; Sonny Sets His Trap for the Shooter

Monday, March 4th is the highly-anticipated return of Steve Burton as Jason Morgan on ABC’s General Hospital. In the newly-released weekly promo for the series, in the final moments of it, you see a man with his hands-up about to turn around which looks like it will be revealed to be Sonny’s former hitman.

In the promo, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Anna (Finola Hughes), Spinell (Bradford Anderon) and others are intercut looking shocked at who they find on the pier with voice-overs of characters saying, “It can’t be”, “It’s him,” etc.

The story has been building as to who has been behind the shootings seemingly targeting Sonny (Maurice Benard), Selina (Lydia Look) and others related to the mob. When they locate Jason … is he the Jason we knew prior to the tunnel collapsing him towards the end of 2021, where he was believed to have perished? How is this all connected to the intel that Olivia Jerome was apparently killed in prison?

Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) and Drew’s (Cameron Mathison) relationship has shown its cracks. When Carly eventually sees Jason, will it eventually pit brother against brother for the love of Carly? And in this case, is Drew going to be portrayed as the bad guy due to his issues since his time at Pentonville which has shown he has become more obsessed with revenge on Nina (Cynthia Watros)?
