General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) had joined the Daytime Emmy-winning digital series, The Bay for its upcoming Season 3.

Duell, who is also a Daytime Emmy winner, will play the role of “Adam Kenway,” a mysterious young man who comes to Bay City with an agenda and wreaks havoc in the lives of Pete Garrett (Andrews) and Sara Garrett (Mary Beth Evans).

The Bay’s creator, Gregori Martin revealed Duell had already taped his Season 3 episodes.  “I’m excited for Chad’s fans to see him in a role very different from what he’s played before,” Martin stated.  “He did a stellar job in bringing the character of Adam to life.”

When asked how it is it working on The Bay, Duell described a great experience. “I heard a lot abut the show and had been wanting to be a part of it. I knew they had a great cast and crew, so I was really looking forward to working with them. I had a ton of fun on set and am looking forward to working more on the project in the future.”

Duell also expressed his feelings about his character. “I loved playing Adam Kenway. He is such a different character than what I have played in my past, which made him so much fun to play. He is a very dark and complex individual, and I had a blast playing with this character. He is so opposite of how I am in real life and those are always the most fun and challenging roles to play.”

“The Bay is loaded with talented actors,” stated Duell. “I I had the pleasure of working closely with Kristos Andrews, Karrueche Tran, Mary Beth Evans, and Thomas Calabro. They were all great. Kristos and I are good friends off camera, so it was different yet fun playing characters that hated each other on screen. I worked a lot with Thomas,  He and I had a lot of fun. He’s hilarious and very talented. I can go on and on about everyone.  It was such a good experience and I am very happy to be a part of such a wonderful cast.”

When asked about working with Gregori J. Martin and Wendy Riche, Duell had nothing but praise. “It was an amazing experience working with them! Gregori is a great director who really allowed me to explore this character and try different things. I would love to continue to work with him in the future.  He brought the best out of me,” stated Duell. “Wendy was great! I could tell how passionate she and Gregori are about this project and it trickles down to everyone involved. They both work very well together. Very happy to work with them!”

Season 3 is slated for a spring 2017 debut.  In the meantime, fans can catch season 1 and 2 of the series via Amazon Prime.

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.

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.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.
