CONFIRMED: GH Rep Details Florencia Lozano's First Airdate May 7th!

Courtesy/ABC

On-Air On-Soaps fans have been quite excited over the past few days with the news of one of their favorite One Life to Live stars was heading over to General Hospital! Of course, we are talking about the talented Florencia Lozano who has a confirmed first airdate from a GH rep of May 7th!  So Tea Delgado will emerge in Port Charles and most likely mix-it up with Sonny and Todd!  According to all the reports, May Sweeps is when Roger Howarth will also be returning to GH as Todd Manning.

So the big question is … will they powers-that-be bring Trevor St. John into this mix soon as the very much alive, Victor Jr.?  Will Tea perhaps be the next women to be seduced by the charms of Sonny Corinthos? Or, will she go after justice against Todd?   There are many avenues to travel down here in the capable hands of GH’s head writer, Ron Carlivati.

Let us know if you are excited about the confirmation of Lozano, and who you would like to see be her love-interest if they should go that route? Sonny? Todd? MIA Victor Jr.?

Not excited at all about Tea coming to GH. I didn’t like the character much on OLTL, I think I’ll like her even less on GH where women are written much more poorly.

give her a chance.. i understand if you never watched OLTL… but she is truly an amazing actress.

Amen to that! When names of OLTL were characters being released I was praying Tea would be one of them. She’s such a great actress, and Todd needs her in his court (no pun intended),

I watched OLTL for many years and was never a fan of Tea. I find her a very abrasive character.

As much as I loved OLTL, it’s not a good idea to “flood” GH with OLTL actors/characters although I’d love to see Tea mix it up with Alexis in the courtroom. Much more interested in seeing more of the original GH actors come back, like where’s Bobbi Spencer been hiding? Also, let’s see more Quartemaine’s (those who are left that is).

The idiots at ABC are trying to make up for the big mistake they made by cancelling the best soap, OLTL! But this isn’t good enough! BRING IT BACK!

How about – none of the above? Short visit and then back to Llanview, please. If there MUST be a love interest – not Todd, never, never, never. Their two marriages were pretty much love – and sex – free, so now is NOT the time to try and make them a pair. I’d rather see KDP come back and fight through the differences to get back to Todd.

When I heard the news of Florencia Lozano’s return as Tea Delgado, I beamed of joy! Whatever her story line weaves into it’s sure to be an intriguing one! I can imagine with her wit and feistyness, her battle the courts with Alexis! Battling it out with Todd, of course. Supporting her girl Starr (You know she loves her Estrella). And could she be mixing it up any leading gems, I mean men? Maybe John McBain? And the obvious…Sonny Corinthos! Welcome Florencia, the arrival of Tea Delgado will keep us glued to our screens! Sigh..GH has got me smitten!

i’ve been a GH fan all my life and i’m not paranoid about the oltl invasion mainly because its been balanced by the returns of old faves like anna, heather, felicia, robert and holly, and believe me with the old regime we would have never seen that many old fave return around the same time, so you know what, if they want to bring in a few oltl faves then i’m all for it, and i’m looking foward to Florenzia being in the mix, and yes, I hope she and sonny interact and team up to destroy Todd whom Tea… Read more »

NOT sonny, NOT todd — only victor jr. seriously, OLTL history can’t be disregarded in port charles! todd without blair??!! tea without victor jr?!?! john mcbain without natalie??!! i’m not saying all these actors need to come to port charles, but their long histories cannot be wiped away. i hope ron carlivati, as former OLTL head writer, will feel the same!

david
Guest

I agree. I couldn’t respect the character of Tea if she slept with either Sonny or Todd. It would be disgusting, especially when she is supposedly pregnant with Victor’s baby. If you destroy a character’s history, what’s the point of bringing her to GH? Tea is her own woman. She doesn’t want just any man; she loves Victor.

I hope they don’t pair her with Sonny. While Tea getting involved with Todd Manning wasn’t the smartest idea (no woman should be involved with him, he’s a nut 🙂 ), I can’t see Tea getting involved with a man like Sonny – a mobster. I just can’t picture it. What about Mac? He’s not getting any love from Alexis and he really needs a good stroryline.

I can’t believe this… We already have Alexis and Diane, we don’t need another female lawyer… while Blair sits and waits to be asked… If anyone needs a contract, its BLAIR…

Nobody ever said this was a contract part. I’d bet Tea is just going to be a short run like Blair was to bring Todd onto the canvas.

SO thrilled, excited, elated, joyful, and just plain HAPPY to see this news! Florenica is an IMMENSE talent, one of the best actors in daytime and Tea Delgado is an incredible character. This will do nothing but help General Hospital! And for my fellow Victor and Tea fans, lets keep the hope alive that these soulmates will get to reunite soon! I feel like TSJ’s arrival will be the next announcement 😉 As for the Sonny/Tea thing, absolutely not. First off, Sonny has enough women drama. Second, Tea would not be that narrow minded, and third, there is only one… Read more »

Ethel I was making a joke about the actress being brought over! Everybody else has been made to have a connection to the mobster. It was a sarcastic joke that they were going to pull that out of their hat. I was just being funny it was news to me John McBain ever had a long lost sister. So it would not surprise me if they make up something about Tea knowing him before. It was a joke!!!!!

Lisa

What I want to know is – will Tea arrive in PC pregnant or will she have already had the baby..if so will she bring baby to PC with her.

….and please don’t have her hook up with Todd.
He belongs with Blair – even if Blair doesn’t come to Port Charles.

…..and Tea belongs with Victor – so hopefully TPTB will find a way to weave that revelation (into the GH fabric) that Victor is indeed -ALIVE.

YAY!

I think Tea will be an awesome addition to GH! Can’t wait to see her again! Now, it’s time to bring Victor jr back also! There is so much that can be written regarding the two Todds. They can work on their rivalry, they can explore teaming up to get Sonny. Trevor St. John was amazing as Todd all those years, so just imagine Sonny dealing with Todd x 2! And of course Blair needs to be there, to balance it all out. There are so many possible stories using those characters, the options are almost endless!

I was so happy when I read the story on my news feed on facebook this morning that they’re bringing my baby to Port Chuck, word to the wise, do not mess with Tea’ you hear me Carly! this girl will slap you silly. I’m also happy that ABC decided to cancel the Revolting and renew GH to see it’s 50th anniversary. ABC has made me a happy guy (sigh!) now if they’ed only bring AMC and OLTL back and admit they made a very big mistake.

So looks like GH has “One more Life to Live”. Sorry couldn’t help myself. Why so tentative? Year to year now? Anyway, glass half full- Congrats GH, the fans can kick a** when it comes to their stories. I wish ABC would come to their senses and bring back the other 2 soaps, like Forbes comparing the new Daytime tv to the new Coke era. IT’s failling…it sucks!!!

I can’t wait to see Tea in Port Charles … she was one of the great ones from OLTL. I honestly thought she would be nominated for an Emmy this year; but was not on the list. Her love/hate history with Todd will want GH fans begging for more. It does not matter to me who she is paired with; her presence is enough.

I cant wait till tea shows up in port charles ,this girl can make things get very interesting ,hope she turns up in the court room ,seriously she can kick diane and alexis ass .So, when the 3 of these ladies get together its going to get good and I do hope they will have a lot of courtroom drama and one by one we get rid of the mob and get sonny,jason,anthony,and johnny a real job,Of course they are not going to jail.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

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.
