The outpouring of love and support shown to the fabulous Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma Drake) did not go unnoticed by GH’s executive producer Frank Valentini.

In fact, Brooklyn is on her way back to General Hospital for a spring break visit when Emma visits her grandma Anna! (Finola Hughes)

ABC Soaps In Depth broke the news, and while all the details are being ironed out, Emma’s visit will span multiple episodes expected to air around March 30th. While Silzer is set to shoot her scenes in the coming weeks.

Valentini told SID, “Yes, we’ve already found an excuse to bring her back!” When viewers last saw Emma, she left Port Charles with her parents Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and headed for their new life in California.

So, are you looking forward to Emma visiting Anna? Do you hope this means there will be plenty of Emma to come. The actress is on recurring status with the soap. Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Awwww. She’s just a child. So sweet.
Besides, every kid has a little bit of brattiness in her/him. ‘Tis the nature of the beast, so to speak. Lol.
I think Brooklyn is a true performer and a cute little button.

Is it really necessary to be so rude about a little kid??? For some of us she is a ray of sunshine on a show that is nothing but mobsters and violence.

As much as I enjoy Emma, I don’t see what she can contribute, storywise

Tristan

Anna has no family left in Port Charles. Emma gives her family to interact with, which is a good enough reason for me! This show also needs some light and warmth. Emma brings that.

I would still consider Mac and Robert her family, but I get your point

Well robbie, one of GH’s weak points is they dont have enough real family moments. They fail to connect the family dots like Y&R. I have no problem with Emma popping in for a bit to be seen with Anna and keeping Emma alive on the show. She will also head to Spoon Island and its loaded with kids now so they will get into something there.

Think that IF there is to be a Nurses’ Ball that Robin needs to be there! There is no reason why Robin still can not visit from time to time – her Mom as well as Uncle Mac as well as Maxie [who were as close as sisters ] could be are still in PC. They did usher her off fast with Jason Thompson’s exit for the show. And with Tristan Rogers coming and going her father will be there too. Besides, the fact that PC has always been home to her – Yes she left town with her husband… Read more »

Oh Wait …… this is from Lynn Herring she addressed the fans …. FROM LYNN: “Thank you all for thinking of me ….. and Lucy, of course, it means so much! I am loving ranching and Museum-ing (is that a word?) right now. I do miss playing Lucy but I am not interested in a line here or there or a day once in awhile. All the years of happiness and satisfaction I had playing Lucy are too important to me, and I would never want to belittle all the great memories I have of her adventures. If Frank and… Read more »

If GH really wanted Emma/Brooklyn on the show full-time, they could make it happen. Have her parents send her to school in PC or maybe her parents are going on a sabbatical and they send her to her grandmother.

She just got her mom back. Niether Robin or Emma would want to be apart again. They’re mother and daughter and had been taken away from each other for too long. Unless they recast Robin and Patrick who come back to live in Port Charles…which doesn’t appear to be happening at this point, I think Emma will just be a frequent visitor.

Timmm
Guest

They are throwing the kid a bone and Anna doesnt have anyone on the show now. Kim is off directing and we all know about Jason. This is the best case scenario for now.

Brooklyn’s sister is now on Y&R. IT is now her sister’s chance to shine. Londyn has been there for Brooklyn since she started on GH. Think this is a mutual decisiin. NO ONE pushed her out

I absolutely welcome her presence on the show. She is a really good actress and a ray of sunshine. I want to see the character in scenes with Roger Howarth’s Franco. Maybe she could use a little art therapy to help her adjust to the many tumultuous changes in her young life.

She’s such a beautiful little girl. Brings charm and innocence to the show. Looking forward to her return but at the same evokes a wave of nostalgia for Patrick.

Geez, I can understand how some could care less if Emma made a visit to PC. But the negative tone some have used towards the character, which has to rub off on the actor because she is still a child after all, is really a black eye on the adults making the comments. I know, you are free to say whatever you want, yada, yada, yada…but as I’ve said before with this freedom comes great responsibility as per Spider-Man’s uncle.

Shay

@Rose….My objection to this character is that she has been constantly painted as the “second coming of Robin” herself, and that is just not the case. Whilst Robin was a deeply thoughtful, intelligent, perceptive and mature child, Emma is just hammy and whiny, never more so than when she was BFFs with Sabs the Babysitter….that made me grit my teeth on every insufferable occasion those two were in the same scene. Even when that storyline finally ended, Emma stayed annoying. Hence when she left with her parents on their HEA, I cheered on the preservation of the Scorpio family unit,… Read more »

But Shay you haven’t been what I call mean with Emma/Brooklyn like some others. It all boils down to viva la difference with characters for all of us, and how we express it. And to mention another difference which is probably like fingernails on a chalk board for you I don’t mind Sabrina for instance. I never really saw Emma as “the second coming of Robin.” Just as herself, and for my taste, hopefully not like Robin. I do think that Spencer, and Josslyn characters can be a little too precocious for me at times. Liz’s kids are well behaved… Read more »

Well, I’m glad you knew I wasn’t being a meanie, Rose! I realize that sometimes my critiques are a bit too pointed for your taste, and that’s fine…..we understand each other. I simply wished to expound upon my comment as to why I’m not an Emma fan. When I was referring to her being considered “the second coming of Robin,” I meant that there were a number of times various characters remarked about her great resemblance to her mother, which I never could see and found to be a cloying notion….from my perspective they share nothing in common, either in… Read more »

Shay…Carly and Josslyn…can’t argue, like mother like daughter. Wait until she becomes a little older, she’s going to be even more than a handful. Forgot to add I did sorta like Spencer’s give and take with his uncle Victor(?).

Shay
Guest

@Rose…..Oh, yes…..I certainly hope Joss will be a real chip off the old Carly once those teen years commence……that will be too much fun to watch! And just in case I gave the impression that I don’t enjoy children or child actors, I must add that I’m absolutely besotted with the little twin chaps that portray young “Master George Crawley” on Downton Abbey….they are the spitting image of their late “father,” Matthew. Perfect casting! (I’m viewing a day-long Downton marathon on my local PBS station as we speak…..all episodes of the last season leading up to next week’s series finale.… Read more »

So true, Timmm….and worse yet, then other soaps snap up these iconic actors so they aren’t available for return engagements to Port Charles!

I hope they recast Patrick and Robin down the road so that it would make sense to keep Emma around. I suggest Michael Muhney and Elizabeth Hendrickson. I believe Kimberly has said goodbye to the role given that Jason Thompson is now over at Y&R and she seems to have plenty of directing opportunities.

Timmm

I am 100 percent against a recast of either but you do bring up two of the best for that possibility.

Speaking of… I noticed they have a new actress AGAIN playing Joss… looks older than Emma…. hope this one isn’t such a nasty little brat.

Love Emma and the talent she brings to the show…also love Nickolas son, I can never remember his name… but he is on the mini series The People vs. OJ Simpson and plays Rob K…

Emma coming back for a visit is great. Remember, Emma may be a little bit of a brat, but this is a professional actress portraying her and by reading some of the negative comments it appears that she is doing a really great acting job.

You must be a real miserable person. Brooklyn is a little cutey and has developed into a good actress. I’m glad she’s coming back for a visit.

Rose

Seems the Liz trolls must have dropped in with a little more of their misery…against a young girl this time. Don’t say it’s not the actor but the character when your dealing with a pre-teen. They haven’t had time to develop the ” thick skin” they wii need to endure comments like some of these we’ve seen here…and from what I’ve read can be far worse on other sites. Sad, sad people if this is the only way you know how to give an opinion.

Emma is a Scorpio and Scorpios belong in Port Charles more than half the characters currently gracing the screen.

I think it’s great that Emma will be back! I don’t find her bratty at all. She seems like most children in her age group (9/10), maybe even a little bit better considering all the drama and heartache she has gone through in her young life. After reading some of these other posts, I really hope that the criticizing ones are coming from children and not adults, because that is just not cool.

Not once in her entire screen life has Emma been a brat. Anything but…she’s beautiful, loving, respectful completely loving…and was played to perfection by Brooklyn.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
