CONFIRMED: Brandon Barash Making A Return To General Hospital!

An ABC rep has confirmed to On-Air On-Soaps that Brandon Barash is returning to General Hospital in the role of Johnny Zacchara.  As to an airdate, “Mum’s the word” thus far from the network, although it is believed that Brandon will be back for a short story arc.

It would seem likely that since Johnny was sent off to Pentonville, and several Port Charles residents are seemingly headed for some time in the slammer for their crimes, the timing could be perfect for Johnny to mix it up with one, or a few of them, while in prison stripes.

There is also that continued rumor that Johnny’s appearance could be tied into to the “Fluke” storyline.  Barash previously played Johnny Zacchara from 2007 to 2012 in Port Charles.

So glad to get confirmation that Brandon’s bad boy Johnny Z. will be on-air in the near future?  Comment below!

Great! I’m gonna really like this..but-
Brandon is only back for a short story arc … 🙁
………… I want to keep him !!!!

(some may end up in the slammer, but for a very short time..
GH needs the big players in stories not in jail/prison..
It will be fun to see them locked up if only for a fleeting moment..

( looking forward to seeing Johnny Z …

This is the BEST news in a long time (and there has been a lot of good news for GH so that is saying something).

Johnny has been SORELY MISSED. CAN’T WAIT to see him back on screen. Nobody fires up his scenes like Brandon Barash playing Johnny Zacchara!

SO EXCITING!

sigh! would he go back to Carly ?

Carly has had no role…. for what seems like eon
Johnny and Jax were the only two who had fire

if GH wants to resuscitate revive redeem Carly… this may be he only way to do it

Brandon Barash is a surefire HIT

Cannot wait for Johnny Z to antagonize Sonny boy in prison! Speaking of the Z’s. I heard maybe Anthony was Fluke? Good call but I was hoping Bruce Weitz would come back as Anthony’s twin. Love it when Anthony says LOO LOO’s name!

LOVING the news! And a possible return for Anthony Z would be terrific…I loved his quirkiness! But I still think FLUKE is really the BALKAN as he acts just like him…. Tony G portrays this Fluke character with his bottom lip jetted out…..which is exactly what the Balkan character used to do…. I may be spelling his name wrong…I don’t know…. but Jerry worked for him as well!

Johnny is a great character and Brandon Barash is a fantastic actor. I’m really looking forward to seeing him again. I really hope this short term return can lead to a long term stay, maybe even a contract in the future again? Yes, GH has a lot of characters on it right now, but Johnny is sorely missed and would be a great (re)addition!

Love Brandon Barash and have been hoping that YR or Days would snatch him up. A short stay is better than nothing! (If they do it right, of course) Still think he would have made a great Billy on YR or as Teresa’s brother Andrew on Days.

that would be amazing… and still a possibility !

“…or as Teresa’s brother Andrew on Days. ”

Man!

The Donovan reign supreme in Salem…. with Gramma Caroline

Shane, Kimberly, Eve, Brandon Barash as nuAndrew, and Theresa

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.
