Daytime Emmy winner Bryan Craig, who wrapped his run this week as Morgan Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, has revealed on social media tod a tad about his first project and role since departing the ABC daytime drama series.

Craig posted a photo of himself with shaved head and a bandana covering half his face, with the message: “Say hello to Jack” #Ridemovie.

Previously, Craig let his fans know on  Twitter on October 6th a bit about his next acting gig: “Just closed on a new project. Can’t wait to share with you all.”  That was followed by another tweet on October 9th relating, “Physical preparation starts today…. Gonna be a brutal 2 weeks.”

We will update you when we have more information on Ride the movie.

So, what do you think of Craig’s first role post-GH? Comment below

I’m happy for him. No risk, no reward. The time for him to take risks is now while his career is still relatively new. New wife, new job….good luck with all of it!

He looks pretty creepy! But, if anybody is up to the role, it’s Craig. His portrayal of a bipolar young man were fantastic. I will miss him at GH, but wish him all the best in future acting career.

If ‘THAT’ picture is supposed to make me want to watch whatever that piece of crap show is…it FAILED!

I couldn’t stand to watch “Morgan” with his shaved head. This character looks even worse!

Just because he won an Emmy doesn’t’ mean he can play any other role convincingly.

Yeah, too dark for me.
Is this gig going to be about a cult? Skinheads? Rebel bikers? Nah, not for me, thanks. Not my kind of world.
I am sure, SZima, that this ‘show’ will attract a horde of fans.

Rather than being rude and judgmental, you should actually wait and see what the movie or TV show is about before you start with the negative comments, and calling something crap based on a picture.

Totally agree. Loved seeing you as Morgan, and best of luck with your new project.

Not to mention, what is the rationale for presuming that he can’t play another role – in spite of winning the Emmy? That just seems totally lame.

I absolutely agree. I was not a fan of Morgan. I thought the material was too heavy and serious for the actor to handle. Morgan appeared to be more of a petulant, spoiled child, than someone suffering with mental illness. Morgan and Kiki were filler as best, not a super couple.

Perhaps to you and some others dr, but for me and others Bryan Craig was superlative. His scenes with Sonny, right from the start, were filled with passion and angst, his scenes with Ava sexual and longing, with Kiki hopeful and living….he went from light to dark…mellow to hyper…I just loved this character and Bryan’s portrayal. He touched, then broke, my heart.

Kudos Bryan! Will really miss your portrayal of lost soul/good soul…Morgan.

It’s great- when young actors can get their start in a soap and then be smart enough to seek acting careers outside of the dying soaps before they become stereotyped and stale/unable to grow into rising careers..
Bryan made a good move- up !!

Bryan Craig is a good actor… in this day and age…. he has the capabilities to move his acting this isn’t a stretch…. but… I liken him to Bradley Cooper of Silver Lining Playbook… where he played a man back home with Bi-Polar obviously Bradley Cooper delivered a more subtle nuanced even paced show Bryan Craig… if anything… is not guilty of a frenetic show one he didn’t know… plus his meds were screwed with… his skillset patience and study of this profession, given time… I wish him well. hey… i’m still glad he’s off the show for my lack… Read more »

I just read an interesting article…. I think it was another yahoo blog

where they discussed the role of Morgan

that perhaps he staged this accident and really just left town… to be on his own… to discover his new life… to learn all on his own

and return someday… however long it takes to recast or await BC.

plus… the biiggie… if and when or whomever is Morgan…that he returns without BP

this character had so much more to drive

Patrick

PS: when its said these serials can film up to 3 eps a day…. that’s frenetic

the prep time…. is so much less

so… Bryan Craig certainly will have the time to earn his keep

I am so sad as a GH fan because he was totally entertaining since day one! It was obvious this man has talent. As long as he keeps acting I will be happy because I think we only saw the tip of the ice birg. He could easily be the next Big name in the movie industry. Bery excited for his new ventures!

Lucked into a role with heavy hitters, did ok, got an emotional story, won an emmy, went to his head, went looking for greener pastures. Same ole story different actor.

Rebecca1
Guest

Rude comment, clh.. There’s no “same ol ‘ story.” He got a great break on GH and won a well-deserved Emmy. He’s a talented actor with a lot of range who wants to act in other things. Period. Went to his head? LOL. Maybe it gave him a feeling of pride and the confidence to leave a sure thing and take a chance on other projects. People do that in their careers…in and out of the industry. Jeeeeeesh!

KansasGuest

If that “same old story” is similar to the ones of Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, Nathan Fillion, Sarah Michelle Gellar, & John Stamos, I think most actors would jump at the chance.

clh
Guest

Absolutely no where in their league. That’s where he thinks he is, but he was not that good to be honest. He was given a killer storyline that constantly had heavy hitters in it, that’s why he won the Emmy, the storyline. He is not very personable, even when he won the Emmy he looked like he was angry at the world. Every picture he’s part of, those around him are smiling and he always has a look on his face like “Do I really have to be here?” Does he have talent? Sure, but not as talented as many… Read more »

No one can tell how “good” or what “league” an actor is in at the beginning of their career. John Stamos & Julianne Moore were basically kids when they left their soaps. Same with Marisa Tomei & Alec Baldwin. Their development as actors had to do with the choices they made & the people they worked with. As for Craig’s facial expressions off screen, that has nothing to do with his talent. People have criticized Marlon Brando, James Dean, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, & Benicio Del Toro for the exact same thing – that they aren’t personable & look… Read more »

Sounded like he took this step with the support of all his cast mates. Few actors want to play the same character their whole lives.

Good luck to him. Hated his portrayal of Morgan but I think perhaps the writing caused more problems than his acting. I hope he stretches his wings with this new project.

Wow—we got to see Justin Hartley move on to something big and now we see Bryan Craig going on to a feature film. It’s good to see these former daytime stars landing things that are much bigger than what they had before although I will miss seeing them on the soaps because they did such a good job.

Rebecca1
Guest

Hi James…just an FYI..Justin had success on primetime before his latest role on “This Is Us”. He was on “Revenge” and “Smallville” and made other primetime appearances. Was up for the lead on another CW show but it didn’t get picked up. He’s been around a while longer than Craig…he’s almost 40 so it makes sense he’s gotten more work. Both great actors…but yep…understandably they want to move on when opportunity knocks but it still’s a loss to us daytime viewers who were into their characters and these actors portraying them.

I do think Bryan made the right move. If he wants to branch out, do it when you’re young. If necessary, he can always return to “GH” when he is older, assuming it’s still around then.

Well he isn’t the first soap actor who wanted to try to get work in movies or prime time television and sometimes they will move on to bigger and better things– become as they say “stars”– good luck to him, hopefully GH will still be around should he ever decide to come back to daytime because he has to eat and the gigs are not coming his way— and to that end PLEASE GH– let the character stay dead— if they recast in a couple of months with a new actor, explaining his new face as plastic surgery from the… Read more »

Totally agree when a decision is made to kill a character off no matter who is writing you need to stick with it that’s why soap opera are laughed at. When Patrick Duffy made the decision to leave Dallas the killed off and he came back a year later as a dream I was done never watched again.

So you see Sabrina and Morgan fans, dont take their exits too hard, there is life after GH! I never liked Morgan, his attachment to Ava or Kiki, it was gross, and didnt care for the acting, in general, but he did win an Emmy and I’m sure that helped with his new gig. Good Luck!

All actors need to grow and expand their roles no matter what they do,and should be done while they are young enough.
I really thought that Morgan and Kiki did not belong together. Kiki is weak and needs a stronger man in her life,namely Dillon who is good for her

Rebecca1
Guest

Kiki weak? She took a bullet for Morgan, she survived her mother sleeping with Morgan, the death of her father…and she was Morgan’s rock. She’s been the pillar of strength through everything, unless you consider showing emotion as “weak.”

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

Photo: ABC

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Courtesy/ABC

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Photo: ABC

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Check out the full chat with Brook and Tabyana below.

Do you want Trina to end up with Spencer or Rory? Will the jury exonerate Trina? What was your favorite part of the conversation with Brook and Tabyana? Let us know in the comment section.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Photo: ABC

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

Photo: ABC

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Photo: ABC

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
