In an intriguing casting twist, General Hospital’s Cameron Mathison’s (Drew Cain) real-life wife, Vanessa will appear on the ABC daytime drama series playing the role of an executive life coach named Mia who crosses path with Drew.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, look for Vanessa to drop in to GH on the upcoming April 20th episode.

This is not the first time that Cameron and Vanessa have shared some screen-time together. During Mathison’s run as co-host of Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family Vanessa appeared a few times from 2018-2020.

Then, back in 2015, Vanessa appeared as herself in the reality series, Cameron’s House Rules.

Now the question becomes, why does Drew need an executive life coach and what words of wisdom will Mia impart on him? Stay tuned!

So, what do you think of Vanessa coming to Port Charles? Comment below.

Oh great, now I can fall asleep to both Ken AND Barbie. I wish they’d make Smoltz a regular and get rid of all the models who bore me to tears.

Smoltz is a sad ripoff of Spinelli’s character! Smoltz must go!

Yeah—Italian saying–“Fra lui e lei, scegliere non saprei–sono senza sapore”–the meaning is typically lost in translation, but I shall try–” it’s hard to choose between one and the other–they both su€k–no flavor”.
Aside—autocorrect also su€ks. Asymmetrical.

Oh Celia, I’m 3/4 Italian but yours is way better than mine. BTW, since they’re literally hiring “everyone and their brother” these days, I have a second cousin who needs a job.

LOL—My in-laws are all Italian immigrants with the exception of my husband, his siblings and his cousins. I made a point of learning the language, inside and out, in order to communicate with my husband’s grandparents.Contrary to popular belief, Italian grammar is very difficult with many exceptions. It seems easy because every letter is pronounced as seen, but the grammar? French and Spanish are much easier to learn, albeit compared to said languages, English is a piece of cake. English is also very illogical. My husband’s grandfather is baffled by the “ph” combination–such as the word “phone”— He said, “Perche’… Read more »

Smoltz would need some moral redemption, but the actor is very good and very cute in a nerdy, “let me take off your glasses” kind of way. Lord knows the show needs an injection of life and Sam/Dante sure ain’t it.

I thought it was just me! I see some potential there. Maybe Alexis can re-invent him or whatever??

Well, I like Ken and Barbie—LOL. But these two don’t even come close. I have never liked Mathison in any role—even his voice grates on my nerve endings.
I’m with you all the way, whynot!!

Celia, that’s what I’m always saying. It’s the voice! He’s not a bad actor and I could see how some find him attractive, though he’s not my type. But the voice sounds strangled, like the old Mickey Rooney “Andy Hardy” movies. I half expect Mathison to say, “Hey gang, let’s meet back at the tree house!” Oh Billy M., where are you? Speaking of Billys, how militantly repulsive is the Billy Abbott character now?! That plop-cast, sorry, podcast…it makes JONATHAN LIVINGSTON SEAGULL seem like Shakespeare. My lampshades are more eloquent.

Who Knows,All I know is that they need to finish up some of these other storylines before starting yet another one. I am a faithful viewer but I am losing Intrest! especially with this whole Nina/ Mike thing and the whole Who is Ninas daughter scenario….So many great Actors who don’t get enough air time it’s always the same actors on screen. I am sure you all can do better, Most of the storylines are horrible and so much sadness.

Agree agree and agreed. GH is now “bring any family member to work” day.

What is truly sad is the under used legacy characters… and sad how when a big story wraps up… not much is waiting in the wings.

If this move helps to bring some life to the walking mannequin playing Drew these days, then bring her on! Mr. Mathison is proving once again, in this role, that he is a talent-free lightweight.

Boy…lots of personal negatives on actors and characters on this story. Hoping we were getting past that. It’s really hard for any new or replacing actor to come onto GH without criticism of some sort. And by the way, I’ve always liked Cameron, and have even enjoyed him on Hallmark.

I will miss Harmony when and if she’s caught and sent to prison. She’s a good actor and interesting the way she just “takes care of her victims” as they come along and she does ugly so well, the way she looks at them with a horrible scary look.I would have had more sympathy for Willow if they hadn’t turned her into a snotty little twit, perfect for Michael. She and Nina didn’t like each other or get along when Willow was Charlotte’s teacher, can just imagine what it will be like when it all comes out, especially finding out… Read more »

GH’s Michael E. Knight Chats On: Taking on the Role of Martin Grey, Friendship with James Patrick Stuart, and All My Children’s Tad

Last Thursday night during a livestream interview, General Hospital’s Michael E. Knight chatted with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel about returning to daytime in the role of legal eagle Martin Grey, and mixing it up with some of the most famous notables and actors that currently and historically have graced the screens on the ABC daytime drama series.

In case you missed it, the replay of the conversation with three-time Daytime Emmy winner is now available.  During the chat, Knight reveals what is has been like to play the on-screen half-brother of Genie Francis (Laura), if he enjoys the courtroom scenes in which Martin had to defend some of the most notorious in town including Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), and more.

Fans of GH are also enjoying the romantic pairing of Lucy Coe and Martin, pairing Knight with another soap vet, Lynn Herring.  Michael shares that it’s nice to see, and appreciates, the writers creating a fun relationship for a couple that is middle-aged instead of always seeing the younger sets escapades all of the time on daytime TV.

All My Children fans, of course, recall Michael’s memorable performances through the years as Tad Martin, where he became synonymous with Pine Valley.  After AMC came to its conclusion in 2011 on ABC and 2013 with Prospect Park, Knight finally returned to soaps in 2015 in the recurring role of Dr. Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless before joining the cast of GH in 2019.

During the interview, Michael shares behind the scenes stories of working with his on-screen parents, Mary Fickett (Ruth) and Ray MacDonnell (Joe), his enduring on-screen love story with Dixie (Cady McClain), and the heyday of AMC in story, with his on-screen sister, Jenny played by Kim Delaney. When Michael came to GH, viewers recall he actually got to share an inside moment with Kim and the fans, when Martin met Jackie Templeton, then played by Delaney.

During the livestream, Michael recalled several of Tad’s wives, and when one fan asked if Cady McClain might come to GH as Dixie, and that maybe she could be a woman from Martin’s past, Knight shared that it could be interesting.

In a surprise appearance later in the livestream, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin, GH), who has an enduring friendship with Michael, and happened to be at Knight’s house, shared some memories of his time as Will Cortlandt on All My Children. Now decades later, things have come full-circle for the good friends as they share screen-time on General Hospital as Valentin and Martin.

Stuart is a Daytime Emmy nominee this year for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category at the upcoming 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and we took a moment to congratulate him on being acknowledged by his peers for the second year in a row.  Currently, James is pulling double duty shooting his Disney+ show, Villains of Valley View, while also taping GH.
