In a surprise twist that no one saw coming, the pivotal role of Michael Corinthos who is at the center of the current Claudia Zacchara murder trial on General Hospital has been recast, which means Drew Garrett is out! This official statement from a GH spokesperson went out this afternoon that stated,  “We are recasting the role of Michael Corinthos Jr., the son of Sonny and Carly, with actor Chad Duell (Wizards of Waverly Place and Suite Life On Deck). His first airdate is Tuesday, April 20th.”

The statement goes on to say, “The continuing storyline will have viewers on the edge in the weeks leading up to May sweeps as Michael and his father frantically try to hide the truth that he murdered his stepmother Claudia. We want to thank Drew Garrett for his time with General Hospital and wish him well in all his future endeavors.”

Drew’s former co-star Steve Burton (Jason) tweeted the following when he found out about the casting change upon his return from some east coast personal appearances. “Worked today and heard bad the news about Drew. Sucks!Sucks!Sucks! My best to him. Drew’s a good kid who will land on his feet.”

See image of the new Michael, Chad Duell after the jump.

Chad Duell’s image is pictured here. So what do you think of the decision? Until Chad hits the airwaves it’s hard to tell, but something is definately going to be different. Could the show be planning a more dastardly Michael C.?  Stay tuned.

What now? Why is GH doing this? I tthink Drew is doing a very commendable job. They ought to be concerned about the Cassadine baby switch. And haven’t we had enough of Helena and her machinations over the years. It ‘s so obvious every time they bring her back that evil will be apparent. I’m getting tired of it all. Boring……

This new guy will never be as good as Drew. Drew had good chemistry with all of the other characters. This new guy looks high off his horse. Drew played a good Michael and I’m dissapointed that they re casted.

I am very very upset that GH is getting rid of an excellent young actor who could grow with the show over the years. Everyone thinks he is doing an excellent job. He is up for an award and how very sad for him to be doing such a great job and to be canned for some kid from Disney. This really stinks in many ways. I am just very sad that he will not be on Gh anymore. There is no reason to recast someone who is perfect for the role.

GH is on its downward spiral and has been for some time. Guza, Phelps, and Frons have created a one trick pony with the monster they created in Sonny. The enitre show revolves around one character and his many illegitimate offspring, Boring. They have ditched the history of the show and the characters the fans have grown with over decades in favor of revolving door plots and characters. Its by far the worst daytime show on and laughable at times. This current GH does not hold a candle to the innovative history making program it once was, what a waste… Read more »

OMG Ive watched G.H since I was 8 I know all about history. If its such a terrible show how did you even find this bored to post your poor excuse of a comment on. Most of the people of the past have moved on to do bigger and better things and I cant think of many of those people who havent been back over the years to pay there respects. So Tom if its such a bad show its won alot of emmys more then any other soap

The premise of soap operas is about relationships and families. Due to the length of time these shows run 40-50 years producers and writers honor the characters and viewers by their long time viewership. Some actors have moved on, most have been pushed out. The Young and The Restless is a wonderful example of a show that has honored its audience by keeping long time characters around and giving them front burner stories. When Guza and Phelps came into GH they destroyed the history of the show, destroyed long time characters and changed what had been a show of great… Read more »

I think Drew Garrett is a really good actor, but as you know when a charcter on GH has a serious personality change the actor sometimes has to change too. Could anyone really be able to imagine Tamara Braun as Carly Jax? I know i would have been pissed had they kept her as Carly. She was the best Carly Corinthos but I dont think she would have been convincing as the wife of Jasper Jax. Maybe later on Drew Garrett will be back maybe not but he will have a good career reguardless i’m sure.

This is very sad news Drew is Michael i cant picture anyone else in the role plus hes really good he reminds me of a younger JOnathan jackson i am just shocked, what shocked me even more was when i called to complain at GH they hung up on me! I think GH just lost my neilson point why should i watch their show they obviously dont care what i think

This is a shock.What is GH doing!! This kid is a great actor. He took over a hard role, being aged. A lot of viewers loved the Michael b4 him. He came in and won us over. At times stealing the scenes. With summer coming up, and teens being out od school you think they would want to keep one of the best teen actors they have around. Dumb move GH!

I hate that they are replacing Drew as Michael. He does not look preppy as I have read in some blurbs. He looks more edgy and more like a Corinthos than this Chad kid. Chad is the one with chipmunk cheeks and looks very “high school musical” to me. Definitely a BIG mistake GH. I like Morgan too, but I understand it was HIS choice to pursue other roles. Back to Michael. Drew/Michael has a repore with all of the other actors/characters and is VERY believeable as Michael. I was sorry to see Dylan Cash go as the original Michael.… Read more »

Wow! Do I agree! One thing though…Dylan Cash was ok as a young actor but was totally unbelievable as a Mobster’s son wanting to carry on in the family business. He was always a poor actor in myu opinion except for the times he was the protective older brother. When Drew first came on I wasn’t sure where they were going with such a massive change in looks and style, but my God, it only took a few episodes and I was hooked! The vehemous way he plays the Mobster’s son os amazing! The onlt other roles in the 33… Read more »

Drew Garrett was wonderful as Michael, but as usual the writers are writing Sonny and GH as the Sopranos…Why would they not want an actor to go from his teens on as did Jason, Emily, Robin , Elizabeth and Lucky for the next Generation…The soap was better under Wendy Riche…God bless her…Sonny continues to be out of control and why the veneration of Luke for God’s sake!!!! Except for his “My Way” facing death gig, he’s the same old, same old…Hope the writers stop writing like wanna-be gangsters and get Sonny back to someone with redeeming qualities…Jason sacrificing himself yet… Read more »

This is probably the stupidest character switch you all have ever done!!! Drew Garrett played the role of Michael so well and he was a perfect match as far as his appearance and his attitude.

I don’t know why they would “dump” Drew. I thought it was dumb to change him from Michael Cash, but Drew did a fantastic job. And now that we all love him they go and do something stupid like that. BUT, that is not the only stupid thing they have done this month. Instead of letting Keifer get his “Just desserts” you killed him off. It needed to be shown that just because his parents thought he was the greatest son, he wasn’t and needed to be punished for what he did to Christina. Thank you for your time.

Totally agree! I loved Dylan Cash as Michael, wasn’t sure if I would like the aged Micheal but Drew Garrett was on point. He held his own against Laura Wright, Maurice Bernard, and Steve Burton. And that is impressive for someone so young because they are all superb actors. And the repoire with Kristina, Morgan, and Molly was excellent. I was really starting to love these kids as the next generation of GH. I watched the newest Michael the last two days and I just don’t think he has it. And I really think GH messed up even more by… Read more »

I couldn’t have said it better myself! This is what I was trying to say when I posted, but you definitely stated it clearer. I was equally impressed with Drew’s performance in all scenes with the other already established actors/actresses, but he was exactly “on” for the role and the position that Michael is now in. I was so happy they aged him and brought in a more mature actor to play a much moodier and deeper Michael, but now we are right back where we started with Disney Chad. I don’t buy it either!

Very dissapointed!!! Drew Garrett nailed the role. Michael is Jason’s biological nephew and he looks just like the younger version of Jason. Not only was he perfect because of the resemblance…he played the role just like an edgy mobster’s son…I love Drew Garrett…PLEASE BRING HIM BACK. I’ve been a GH viewer for 30 plus years and I have to say this is one of my most dissapointing character changes.

Does anyone know why they recast Drew’ srole, I think he was an excellent actor and I have been watching GH ever since I was a little girl, sad to think I will have to stop now, I watched today and the new actor is completely opposite of the persona Drew portrayed……GH lost a fan due to this recast….I have stuck with them through all of them except this one.

Just one more voice that wants to be heard whether they listen or not… Drew Garrett was the first believable male child actor this show had shown us. (Great job with Christina and Molly). The redheaded, chubby gifted, preppy Michael never fit the role, but the change to Drew was amazing and then back to another child-like “sweet” actor has once again killed the role. I will NEVER believe this kid could play the role as a “bad ass” Mobster’s son yet as a loving family man- hte same way you would have us believe Sonny and Jason have been… Read more »

Totally agree. This new Michael was quite a shocker. he looks looks too old to even be believable as Carly’s son. Short & chubby, too. I agree with Sheilah about killing off Kiefer. It would’ve been so much better for him to have been repremanded for domestic violence and teach a lesson to the young viewers that violence is not okay & needs to stop. but NO. Instead GH kills him off. Stupid move, stupid message. Two stupid decisions airing in the same month. Changing the role of Michael and killing off Kiefer. Way to go GH.

I am not happy at all with Chad a Michael. I can’t stand to watch GH now so I have moved to another Soap until they rehire Drew back as Michael. It makes me sick when they change characters for no reason. He was an excellent young actor and I can see him as Michael for years to come. What a shame. They lost me over it.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
