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!

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.

Patrick
Guest

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

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.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?

Let us know your theories about Elizabeth’s mother upcoming return to Port Charles in the comment section below.
