Could Tea Delgado be on her way to Port Charles? Florencia Lozano to GH?

This would be fantastic news once we can get a confirm from a GH rep! According to We Love Soaps, Florencia Lozano is on her way to General Hospital to reprise the role of Tea Delgado of One Life to Live and is beginning work on the soap this coming week.

Florencia Lozano participated in a special benefit staged reading of the play Busted in New York on Saturday night where it seems the news of her coming to General Hospital began to come to light!

On-Air On-Soaps will be on top of this story on Monday after the Easter Holiday!  Think of the possibilities! Tea coming to give legal counsel, Todd Manning coming back to town when Roger Howarth returns to the show and Tea being there, and of course, could Victor Jr.  (ala Trevor St. John) be far behind?

Let us know your thoughts!

I agree with you,they would have to recast,and maybe Jack too.

I meant recast Sam.

Why would you want to recast Patrick Gibbons, Jr who played Sam? Is he not one of the cutest children you have ever seen?

I agree, David. That kid is sooo cute! And, not a bad little actor, either, for his age…

I have been watching GH, and I am doing it to support my OLTL peeps, and the genre, but it hasn’t hooked me yet. It’s definately not the same. However I continue to watch to help save a genre that I have loved until my OLTL was pulled away. Flo Lo to GH will be the anchor that would get me, however I WANT KASSIE DEPAIVA also! Blair, Carly, and Tea! WOW! Also Trevor, and Roger. This is the right group of people to swing over. They fit with GH!

SHERI

i agree although i am NOT a tea fan and would have liked to see KASSIE DEPAIVA asked first since roger howarth is coming on board as todd. With Todd, Sonny, Victor carly, tea and blair onboard i think GH ratings will skyrocket!!!

Alexa

Kassie DePaiva was asked first.
I honestly don’t think this is a long-term thing (as long term as GH is going to be, anyway).

Torrey

I agree with you…..but I also wonder, WHY NOT JUST BRING OLTL BACK?! If what’s improving GH is bringing on so many OLTL characters, as well as the Producer, and writer of OLTL…..then should the show really have been cancelled in the first place?! I mean, I would be thrilled to see Tea, but I want to see her on OLTL, with the rest of the cast….just my opinion.

Alexa
Alexa

I couldn’t agree more. However, people have moved on, and the likelihood of getting our OLTL back is probably nonexistent. ::sad::

lipstickcat

Yes, yes, yes! This just proves OLTL shouldn’t have been cancelled! It was the best & most popular of the soaps! They should admit their mistake & bring it back just like NBC did with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show! It can be done!

This is great news I also read over at daytime confidential that she is coming to general hospital.so I heard this at two different sights.tea,diane and alexis in a court room that will be great ,must see tv,I can see it now,Maybe victor is being held hostage in port charles somewhere ,let the story of two todds continue.also I heard at another sight this morning that the reason the ratings went up for general hospital is because of the one life to live cross overs ,gh needs the fans of one life to live to stay, so our soap characters from landview they have to stay to ,I knew it was a good thing to keep one life to live alive.I m a fan of both soaps (one life to live is my favorite) But this is the right move to keep general hospital from getting cancelled.Thanks again RON and FRANK,this fan is very ,very happy again,Friday Finola,Sunday florencia.General hospital will never be boring again.

This would be great…there can never be to many lawyers in PC and having Flo back would be awesome

Wow, very disappointed in this news, sorry..not a fan. Of all people to bring..VERY surprising!! Afraid it will turn off more GH fans..most of the OLTLers like me are not watching as reflected in the ratings.

Heather

The only GH fans who wants to see the OLTL characters, are those who were watching both soaps.

GH fans, who never watched OLTL, don’t want to see any OLTL characters on their show.

Susan M.

I am happy more of the actors coming to GH..doesn’t bother me in the least…I stop watching GH for a little while..But I am back on board..The main reason is because OLTL actors will be on GH…. I miss OLTL soooo much & I welcome them on GH………………..OLTL was my favorite soap………………So more the merrier….

Violet
Violet

I agree with Heather.

More OL characters directly means less time for the GH story lines. There are only 60 minutes to each show. The math is easy to do.

TR
TR

Violet – they are all GH characters now, they are appearing on GH so these are GH stories. If they were cutting away to Llanview then yeah it would be less time for GH, but you are still getting 60 (actually about 36 after commercials) minutes of GH 5 days a week.

Violet

Loyal GH viewer here. Tea’s arrival, if followed by TSJ and the whole Blair/Todd family, will not interest me. I liked OLTL but only watched sporadically over the years. All these characters coming to GH sounds like OLTL is becoming a big chunk of the show. I want MY GH characters back! Not more OL! I want Robert, Anna, Alan, Monica, Emily, Bobbie, Sean, Tiffany, Ned… Basically, more Quartermaines, Spencers and others around which the show was established.

IF, and I do mean IF, bringing all the OLTL characters on saves GH, then I’ll put up with it. But it is not my preference. I’m not trying to disparage OL or all the OL fans. I sympathize on how great a loss you must feel with your show gone! I’m dreading feeling the same if GH is canceled.

Susan M.
Susan M.

I see nothing wrong with it.. There’s plenty to go around… OLTL was my favorite soap.. Gh was my second favorite soap…OLTL had heart & they were like a family..Plus OLTL was heart-warming soap…No mob/gangster stories like GH…They are as different as night & day………….Loved Erika Slezak the heart of the show…She had plenty of love to spread around to her family & friends…Again I welcome them to GH………….

Violet
Violet

Yes, I would like GH to get away from the wall-to-wall mob nonsense also. That’s exactly what I meant about bringing back the core characters and families that made GH. If we have more Qs, Spencers, Webbers, etc then we have less Sonny/Jason mob. If more and more OL characters are brought on, there is far less time for the actual GH ones!

More OL characters takes GH farther away from what GH was built on and where it should focus again.

Susan M.
Susan M.

These mob/gangster stories have been going on too long…People get tired with this storyline…Time to change the storyline if they don’t this could possibily hurt Gh ……………….You would get more viewers if they stopped these mob/gangster stories…………….

Robert
Robert

I am loving it, the addition of OLTL characters is breathing some fresh air into GH. However, the core cast of GH needs to be incorporated with the OLTL ones so that it flows better. The Sonny/John McBain story is perfect. It makes sense for the Mannings to be there in light of what happened to Hope & Cole. Tea naturally fits in because of Todd, the last charachter should be Natalie since John is staying in town. After that, maybe occassional visits from other characters but not too many.

I do think David Hayward should come to town to help Anna, grive.

Jared

OMG, this is awesome news! GH cannot survive on its own premise prior the RC/FV era, so I’m happy that there is some vindication for the abc number-one rated ONE LIFE TO LIVE. Let the takeover begin, and long live ONE LIFE TO LIVE.

This would be the greatest and if she found out Vitors alive then there going to be reunion again, The TnT couple will be back together and have a new baby. I can’t wait till they say it true! I love oltl but I love seeing them on anyshow!

Debbie Harris

I really hope this news is true! I love florencia and her character Tea! I could see lots of good interactions and storylines with GH characters. But they need to get Kassie DePaiva back as Blair! She and Tea are too good together to not have them both! Would also Love to see Trevor St. John back as Victor!

Pam Little
Pam Little

Blair’s ” true life ” family still lives in NY City, would be really hard for her to move to the West Coast, so I would be ” happy for visits ” from her now & then, although I did want her & Todd to get bk together again!!!! If OLTL/GH merger is what it takes to keep the last soap standing then so be it. & I agree David Hayward would certainly shake up the hospital scenes on GH, & I am sure they could write a storyline into GH where Hope cojld still be alive— they could & should hv ran this same storyline, only to hv kept Hope alive, & still ran the story & trial except w Cole being the only one in that SAD SAD accident.

david

This is the best news since OLTL ended 3 months ago. I love Florencia as Tea. Strong, sexy smart Tea can take on anyone in Port Charles. I actually feel a glimmer of hope and happiness. This makes a difference for me between tolerating GH and lookg forward to it. Maybe Tea can prosecute Sonny and send him to prison. Naturally, I would love to see her reunited with her daughter Danielle and husband Victor. I will never miss an episode of GH again.

David Im with you about sam (patrick gibbons)he is a cutie pie ,Every time he was on I enjoyed his work.Isnt this the greatest news that florencia is coming to general hospital? I hear there are 2 more soap stars , still just a rumor,trevor,kassie and roxy would be nice .Are we going to love the court room drama with tea,diane and alexis.I wish I could remember where I read this but there saying that the ratings going up on gh was because of the soap fans from one life to live ,so if any thing is going to save it ,its the characters crossing over,This one life to live and general hospital fan is happy,To bad viki,clint ,bo and dorian cant make a loooooooong visit.Throw dr david hayward in there to.WE have to watch we dont get to many people landing in port charles ,but It looks like my dream soap opera is coming true.

It would be nice to have Florencia Lozano on the show especially if Trevor St. John is coming as well. However, I’m cautious about this news since I don’t have any idea about the storyline. I do not want her paired with Roger and I do not want her as his lawyer. I don’t want a redo of RH’s TNT. That ship sailed when he abandoned Tea on an island to chase after Blair right after having sex with Tea. It would be nice to see Tea portrayed as a woman with some level of self-respect and pairing her with Roger’s Todd would undermine all that.

david
david

Todd is accused of killing Victor and is to be tried for his murder. No way would Tea hookup with or help Todd. That is too nauseating to contemplate. The only man for Tea is Victor.

You should be happy that the OLTL people have brought life to a dead show. The show will probably not get cancelled now and that is thanks to the fantastic acting and storylines. Merge the two please.

The only problem I have is that we lost characters like Kristina and Abby so that we can bring in OLTL. Merging them is one thing, but at what cost?

OLTL should never have been cancelled. And now they’re trying to salvage that show through GH.

JUST BRING BACK OLTL ALREADY!

Why ?if it works, it cant hurt .I am a fan of one life to live and general hospital,Soaps have newbes all the time ,so what if there keeping the characters from another soap and bringing them on board.If it saves general hospital it should not matter who turns up in port charles as long as general hospital stays put and abc/disney doesnt cancel our show.The story of 2 todds was a good adventure I would like for that story to continue because we were cheated out of it because of abc/disneys stupidity,there not merging, there bringing a new story to port charles and its about time .

@justsaying> OLTL SHOULDN”T have been canceled in the first place! It was a great show and was rated higher than GH. So…be glad that the writers are incorporating them so that fans of either/both can hopefully keep the genre alive!

Teresa
Teresa

I agree with you, Rebecca. I have watched both soaps for over 30 years. I love the new life that the OLTL characters are bringing to GH. I was extremely sad at losing OLTL, but if they cancelled my beloved GH I don’t know what I would do. In the last year or so before OLTL ended I was more interested in it than GH. GH has gotten too “mob-centered” instead of family oriented. The infusion of both, I think, is the best possible way to keep GH alive and I’m loving it all over again.

JustSaying
JustSaying

I’m glad the writers are at GH. Maybe they can help bring back OLTL.

But seriously, this has got to stop. Let OLTL come back already and let GH be GH. Even if OLTL comes back in a half-hour format.

Alexa

The news may not have been confirmed yet by a GH rep, but the information would have come directly from Florencia Lozano Saturday night to Damon L. Jacobs of We Love Soaps TV.

I wonder if her pregnancy is in ‘real time,’ or whether they are going to play with it.

Judy

Been watching OLTL and GH since I was in grade school in the 1970’s. As much as I love seeing some of the OLTL actors showing up in PC, I think Mr. Valentini has to be careful not to inundate the soap with OLTL characters. He’s done a great job integrating Michael Easton’s character (John) onto the canvas and I really like the chemistry between Carly and Todd, but you can’t turn GH into OLTL. That would not be a wise move. I’m enjoying GH more now than I have in a very long time thanks to the “magic” of Mssrs Valentini and Carlivati.

Violet
Violet

So true, Judy. Don’t turn GH into OL.

Judy

Glad I’m not the only one who feels this way. Thanks Violet!

You’re welcome! We are in the minority around here, you know! Most want handfuls of OL characters brought to Port Charles. That only serves to take more away from GH.

If Tea prosecutes Sonny, Carley will likely come to his defense. It would be interesting to see Carley take on Tea. Maybe the two of them could slug it out like Blair and Tea, when Tea referred to Blair as a “bitch in heat” before slapping her for sleeping with Todd: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlzqHQuQYIU

The good old days, I remember it well,I loved when tea and blair went after each other ,It was fun.hopefuly kassie will be moving to port charles and we can see tea,blair and carly going at it Finola can try to break it up.”Bitch in heat”that was good.It happens at jakes and our roxy is there complaining about having to clean up the place ,OOps they renamed it the floating rib.

As a GH faithful viewer i give my blessing, and remember, tea hates todd because she thinks he killed victor, can you imagine if she teamed up w/ sonny? , this could be really fun, and this is what its suppose to be, I think FV snd RC have proven and done more in the short time that they’ve been there that they care about GH and its rich history w/ all the vets who have come back so far, if they are choosing to combine that w/ OLTL history, then i’m all for it. I’m not going to be against bringing in someone talented like Florenzia Lozano. So heres hoping that its true.

I think it’s fantastic. Now that Diane isn’t practicing law Alexis needs a buddy in the court room. Tea is an absolute spit-fire. She and Alexis will spar very nicely. I don’t understand where all the hate is coming from for some extremely talented actors and actresses. They’re not “taking over” GH. They are making it much more interesting and fun to watch. Give it some time and they will be fully integrated into the canvas and it will be like they’ve always been there. I’m all for whatever keeps my beloved GH alive. It’s the only soap I have left.

barbara t

Teresa ,you are so right.there are newbes all the time,so what if they are the same characters that come from one life to live I am a fan of all the abc soaps and I have no problem with the cross overs , Abc hired Ron and Frank to turn general hospital around and what ever they have to do ,let them do it ,I loved one life to live it was my favorite I would much rather have my soap back So Its nice to see a little bit of landview in port charles,Its not going to hurt anything,It will bring alot of fans of one life to live that never watched general hospital over to help save this soap .I would love to see tea,alexis and diane in a court room.How entertaining will that be?Its a soap opera that I want to see,there not taking over ,like you said it will be interesting and a lot of fun to watch.

Violet
Violet

The one thing that it does hurt, is it keeps GH from returning to it’s roots of the hospital, the Qs, the Spencers, and the Webbers, etc. The more OL characters there are, the more time it takes away from the true GH (not the new mob infested GH). There are only 60 mins in a show. Only so many story lines can be going at once. It’s simple math. More OL equals less GH.

Amy
Amy

As much as I loved OLTL they need to stop bringing those character’s over! GH is not OLTL. And yes it may bring more OLTL fans but what about GH fans that didn’t watch or care about OLTL? They want to see characters that they know and love not another show’s, this is ridiculous and needs to stop before we start losing GH fan’s too.

Violet
Violet

Agreed!

okiecarol

Don’t think of them as OLTL characters being added to GH. Think of them as new characters coming to Port Charles. We soap fans are use to new charactors coming and going all of the time. I am all for new characters coming to Port Charles and bringing new viewers with them — I don’t want ABC to cancel GH.

Pam Little

Get over it, They should do ” WHATEVER IT TAKES ” to keep GH on air, whats the problem if it keeps GH from the chopping block, I am a OLTL fan but a soap fan above all else, I hv no problem with sharing screen time between GH & OLTL, & Tea Delgado is a superwoman in the courtroom, they are all great actors, so I don’t see a problem with OL & GH working together if this is the only way to see any of our OL & you guys will see GH, IT IS BETTER THAN NO SOAP @ ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @ least you hv a soap to look forward to other than Chew & Catie Couric.

Not a choice I was expecting. Though I am a fan, I am concerned about how the GH folks will take it. I would LOVE to see her mix it up with Alexis and Diane. Two of my favorite GH characters who definitely deserve more storyline. Or A storyline.

I would love to see Florencia and TSJ on GH. Maybe they could let RH disappear and TSJ take his place. 🙂

Margie

If FL is given a contract I’ll be getting a discharge from GH. Tea Delgado is my least favorite female character ever conceived on any soap. She was not even the kind of character I loved to hate, she was a snotty, hypocritical, screaming dork. Look out, Alexis. How many 50 year old female lawyers does one show need?

Alexa
Alexa

Téa’s not anywhere close to 50…

Margie
Margie

FL might be younger but Tea has an 18 year old daughter who was born when she was well over 30. Dani was aged 10 years, so was Tea.

Alexa
Alexa

I have never seen that as the case for the parents of a SORASed child.

However, FL doesn’t even convince as 40, so 50 is not believable in any sense of the word.

Margie
Margie

Flo is mid 40’s and looks it. Not that anything is wrong with mid 40’s.

Christy
Christy

agree – not 50 by any means — SHE”S PREGNANT! They only age progress the kids, not the parents! I would guess the character for late 30’s to very early 40s… because SHE”S PREGNANT! bwahahahaha

Christy
Christy

my mom was 42 when I was born and that was dangerously late to be having a baby… Tea has to be younger than that!

Margie
Margie

Are you guys twelve? 42 is not too old to have a baby and many women don’t enter menopause until their 50’s. A pregnancy is less likely but possible. Do you know what menopause is? Tea thought maybe she was going through menopause at first.

Regardless – whether she’s 42 or 49 she sucks. Worst female character ever.

christy
christy

42 and older, yes you can still have a baby, but it can be dangerous to most women to wait that late in life. menopause can start at different ages…. I used to think it was in your 50s too, probably cuz I thought that was old! ha! but it’s not.

I’m way past twelve… (I’m been watching GH & OLTL since they started) I think she’s a great actress!

and, more importantly, I hope that bringing on Téa means that we’ll get Victor shortly. I’d hate they get her involved with Sonny… that would be odd

Pam Little
Pam Little

This is a soap, who cares how old Tea is when she became with child, It was on OL & is on GH a soap, sooo it does nt make ANY DIFFERENCE @ all what her age was & is now. BRING TEA ON OVER, the more actors the more ” INTERESTING ” GH will be, Gh actors are nt having a problem working with Oltl actors, they are probably happy to still hv a job & I am still happy to hv a soap to watch each day w both the actors from OLTL & GH!!!!!”!””””!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today was a good episode of general hospital ,the quartermaines were a riot ,funny,I enjoyed every minute I spend in there living room ,sitting room,library,what ever the rich people call that room ,it was fun to watch.Thanks Ron thank you for making things funny in the quartermaines mansion ,I loved every minute of it.the characters of port charles need a sense of humor and they got it today.Thats what I liked about one life to live it always put a smile on my face and nice long laugh out loud.

Bring the role of Thea Delgado to GH? Now we’re picking up some momentum with the migration of some of the OLTL characters if this becomes a reality! Excellent!!

Torrey

Huge OLTL fan, but the addition of the characters to GH isn’t enticing me enough to watch. There is one huge problem that needs to be addressed with GH, before I have the desire to tune in…..and that would be to change the direction of the show. It has been the Sonny Corinthos hour for far too long, and I can’t take it anymore. The entire show revolves around Sonny….what he’s done, what he’s thinking about doing, how what he has done has effected the people he loves…I just can’t stand it anymore!!! I mean, are they even going to address how the man who played Edward Quartermaine has passed away?! They don’t even take the time to do any other stories, unless it’s crime related and can lead back to Sonny. I love, love, love Florencia, Kassie, Roger, Trevor & Kristen…..but would love it more if they were in Llanview. I have given GH the last several weeks of my time, and I don’t think I can do it anymore. Why, just yesterday, I had it on GH, and one of my family members came in the room, and was like, “Why are you watching this?” I quickly said, without any remorse, “Oh, you can turn it, I don’t care. It’s not my OLTL, so it doesn’t matter.” The reason for this is because I was bored to tears. They quickly brushed over the Robin death, just so they could get the cameras back on Sonny. It’s freaking ridiculous!!

4 actors have played Edward. David Lewis, the first actor, died in Dec. 11, 2000. Les Tremayne, 2nd actor to play Edward, died Dec. 19, 2003.

The next actor, Jed Allan and current actor, John Ingle are very much alive. However John Ingle’s wife Grace-Lynn just passed away this past February.

I thought they were trying to save the show if you did not watch OLTL even if you did it is called overkill. They are headed right down the path as Y&R which looks more like AMC these days and even tying these people to Sonny well I just don’t get it! And the actress is lovely but OLTL got cancelled. Where is the story for Mac, Alexis etc give us a chance to get reacquainted with characters that Guza flushed down the toilet .You know they did some good things over at OLTL but they also had some stinkers .

“Basically, more Quartermaines, Spencers and others around which the show was established.”

Actually, the Quartermaines didn’t become a main focus until the late 1970’s…close to 20 years after the show started. Pretty much the same for the Spencers.

There is really no one on the show from it’s roots… Brewers, Hardys, Baldwins…..

Even as a fan of OLTL, I would not want to see GH overrun with OLTL characters unless they can be integrated into the cast with good, solid storylines….not “stunt” casting. Although, it would be fabulous if the influx of OLTL characters rose GH ratings to the heights that it was possible it could be aired again.

Elizabeth is from the Hardy clan… so is Steven, her brother. You know Matthew Ashford was just “released” from the soap he was on, sooo they could bring Tom Hardy back and then Audrey could get some real airtime and just mentioned by Elizabeth. And Tom had a bunch of hot scenes with Felicia and she’s coming back! And Audrey’s niece Anne Logan – make sense to bring her back cuz way back when, Heather tried to set her up for murder so she could try to get Jeff…. sounds like something she’d try now to get rid of Anna… hey, nearly the same name of girls in her way! And of course they could bring Scotty back now that crazy Heather is back. Brewers I think died out.

This is great !! I wonder how they are going to present her ?
As she was pregnant with Victor’s baby when we last saw her ?
Will she still be pregnant ? Or will she have delivered the baby ?
I still want to know how they are going to explain Todd’s presence in Port Charles as he is charged with Victor’s “murder”.

???????? Lots of questions …….but very excited.

GH’s Eden McCoy Chats on Tackling the Role of Young Carly, Josslyn’s love life, and Her Co-Stars

The rivalry between Carly (Laura Wright) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) has deep-rooted history in the past, not just the present, as viewers learn today on a special episode of General Hospital.  In it, we go back to the 90s, before Carly stepped foot in Port Charles.  This gave Eden McCoy, who usually plays Carly’s on-screen daughter, Josslyn Jacks, the chance to play a young Carly as fans of the ABC daytime drama series also see that the episode sheds come clues to a story that will play out in the present in the weeks and months to come.

McCoy got the opportunity to work with a different set of players than her normal scene partners in Port Charles in the episode – Cynthia Watros (Nina), James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) and young Willa Rose (young Nelle), who comprise the Benson ‘family’ in the flashbacks.

However, while Eden got the chance to travel back to the 90s, Josslyn is also in the dark in the present to that kiss shared by her best friends, Trina (Sydney Mikala) and Cameron (William Lipton).   If that lip-lock came to light to Joss, will that finally get her to admit she may feel more than friendship with Cam?

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Eden to discuss: the opportunity to play young Carly, having Laura Wright as her on-screen mom, and going to battle on-screen with her good friend, Chloe Lanier, plus if she would like to share more screen-time with Josslyn’s dad, Ingo Rademacher (Jax), and of course, the burning question, who has Josslyn’s heart? Is it Cameron? Find out when you read on as to what Eden shared below.

On today’s April 8th episode of GH, we see you portraying a young Carly.  Tell me when and how you found out that you were going to play Carly, and what the experience was like for you taping those scenes?

EDEN:  It was really one of my favorite experiences at GH, hands down.  I think if I had to choose favorite episodes, this would be this one for sure. My other favorites prior to this have been: the fight scene with Nelle, the dance scenes I did, and the fake drunk scenes with William.  Those were all so great.  I found out that I was going to do this episode and play a young Carly from Laura Wright.  I ran into her on set for blocking.  We weren’t even working together that day, and she’s like, “Oh, I’ve been told that you’re going to play a young me in an episode,” and then she literally walked away – because she had to work.  So, I was like, “What?”  It was kind of this thing hanging in the air, and I rushed to tell my mom, because I was so excited.  I didn’t get the script until maybe a month after Laura told me.  I didn’t want to ask more about it before then, because I kind of wanted to be surprised, too. Then, when I got the script and read it, I was completely blown away.  Then, when I got the news that Cynthia Watros was going to play Carly’s mom and that James Patrick Stuart was going to play Carly’s dad, I mean, I just about had a heart attack! Those are two actors that I’ve watched and admired so much and haven’t worked with a lot.  So, it was this perfectly gift-wrapped opportunity to get to know my fellow castmates and dive into a whole other character.  Everyone was so involved in that episode.  Look at the set design, for one thing.  You can totally tell that it transported us into the 90s.  Everyone did an amazing job with that style of architecture ….everybody had been researching it …everybody pretty much except for me as I lived through the 90s!  The wardrobe was one of my favorite things ever, because the 90s, for me, is my favorite era of fashion.  I feel like my own wardrobe is heavily inspired by the 90s.  I have vintage pieces; my favorite jeans are 90s Levis. I watched Friends and obviously was obsessed with it.  The wardrobe team did an amazing job focusing on all of the 90s trends with the cardigans and the clogs and the jelly shoes and all of that.  I have three outfits in the episode, and we literally named them “Monica”, “Rachel”, and “Phoebe” after the women on Friends.  It was so much fun.

What’s your take on what happened in the episode; as we learn about Carly’s troubled-past with her adoptive parents, and her past with Nelle?

EDEN:  It starts as a look into a young Carly’s everyday life.  She gets home from a job interview.  She is looking for work, and she gets the job, and Virginia and Carly are talking.  However, the conversation turns into how Carly wants to leave home, and have a very different life than Virginia, but she needs money to do it.  So, she leaves her mom, Virginia, to go find Frank, her dad, who, by the way, is a complete turnoff of a dad.  She thought he was going to have some money, and she could be rich, and get it from him, and move to New York, and see the world because that’s her overall goal.  Carly is a very passionate, goal-driven person as we know, so she goes to see Frank.  It will be a heart-wrenching moment for Carly as a character; and you will see how Nelle factors into this.   All of this in the past shows the internal conflict that Carly has towards Nelle as a person and as a character.  It’s not just that Nelle came into her life and hurt her kids and hurt her family, but it’s because it’s that desperate need for validation that Carly had growing up.  I think, she has had this resentment towards Nelle, because of it.

How old were you supposed to be in the flashbacks as young Carly?

EDEN:  I was playing like 18-19 years old, and Nelle was around 6.  Willa Rose was such an adorable little actress.  She and James were so cute together, and James was phenomenal.  He just went 110% on this, and it was so, so fun to work against that.  Every take was different.  James was walking at this pace, or he was eating in this scene, and he totally took it to the place that I knew that he would take it.  Same with Cynthia!  Cynthia was amazing.   I’ve watched them together since Cynthia first came on the show as Nina, and I’ve watched James forever, so I totally scored.

Has Laura Wright seen your portrayal of Carly yet?

EDEN:  I’m super excited to see what she has to say about it.  Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) and I were discussing it day-of taping. We were kind of dissecting Laura’s mannerisms so that I could kind of plug them in to my performance. We used when Laura as Carly tucks her hair behind her ear, and Frank was like, “Oh, yeah!  Do that!”  I’ve grown up with Laura, and watching her, and acting against her, and people clearly compare us all the time and are like, “That’s insane.  Do you try to do that on purpose?” It’s like, “No, I’ve just been with her since I was 12, almost every day.”

You realize when working and talking with Laura that she truly gets and understands her art and acting in this genre.  She’s really one of the best there’s ever been in soaps.  She can dissect a scene and understand it from different points of view, etc.

EDEN:  Oh my God, I know.  She’s phenomenal to watch, and I am not immune to that whatsoever.  It hits me every time I see her act.   She’s just been the best teacher.  The comments I get the most are: how much I resemble her looks wise for one, but also acting wise.  So, I’m so excited to see what people have to say following the airing of this episode.

What do you think about Josslyn’s combative relationship with Nelle?  I loved on today’s episode that we got to see the scenes where Josslyn clocked Nelle again!

EDEN:  I would love to slap Nelle again!  Chloe is one of my closest friends on that set.  Even though we haven’t worked together as much as we used to, we are still very close, and I learned a lot from her.  Scenes with her are always so juicy.

Photo: ABC

Where do you think Josslyn is at this point in her love life?  Is she still really into Dev (Ashton Arbab)? Does she truly loves Cameron, but can’t admit it to herself? 

EDEN:  I think that’s it. With Dev, he was an intriguing character with a very different background than Josslyn.  They say opposites attract, and I think that goes along with this story a little bit.  He’s just something that’s new, and someone who she is intrigued by, and I think that’s realistic.  I know that’s happened to me in my love life before.  I’m not sure where it’s really going to go between Dev and Josslyn.  Then for Cam, I think she doesn’t want to admit the feelings that she has for him to herself because that’s a whole big can of worms. I think she feels that once she admits that it might – not necessarily ruin their friendship – but taint it.  Cam is such a safe place and such a home for Josslyn.  I feel like if she were to admit that to herself, she’d be like, “Oh, no.  I’m going to make this uncomfortable and weird, and I can’t lose Cam as a friend.”  That’s always kind of been where her head is at, but I think as she spends more time with him, her feelings become more and more clear.  You never really know what’s going to happen, and I don’t think she’s set on anything.  Teenagers are just all over the place with feelings, and one day they feel this and one day they don’t.  So, it’s always such fun to play because I know some fans are dying to see Cameron and Josslyn get together that and some people don’t want to see that.  It’s fun to hear everybody out and to hear everyone’s opinions on it.  For me, I just hope it can be something fun to watch.  That’s always the goal.

So now Trina has shared a kissed Cam, and Josslyn doesn’t know that yet.  What do you think her reaction is going to be when she finds out?

EDEN:  It will be interesting to see how the writers do that when she does find out, because Trina has been a great friend to Josslyn, and Josslyn wants to be a great friend back, and of course, Joss is a great friend to Cam.  These are her two best friends.  She doesn’t really want to be anything but supportive.  I feel there is going to be a lot of internal struggle with that because I think that action is probably going to make her realize, and come to terms with some feelings that she has probably been avoiding, for sure.

Do you think that Josslyn has truly moved on with her life following her last boyfriend, Oscar’s heartbreaking death, so that she can welcome and accept new love into her life?

EDEN:  I think she’s moved on, at least I hope so!  That’s a pain that she’ll take with her for the rest of her life, and an experience that she’ll always have in her back pocket. That’s great as an actor … to have had a deep, influential experience because you can bring that into certain scenes and make them stronger.  Right now, I think she’s just trying to be normal and feel normal things, and that’s where I hope that her story will continue to go.  Life goes on, and we have awesome teenage characters that I’m happy to be a part of and working with.

Whenever the fans have seen William Lipton and you together, they have noticed that you get along so well. What can you say about William?

EDEN:   We do get along so well.  William is the best.  He’s really like a sibling.

Would you like to see more scenes between Jax and Josslyn? Don’t you think he should be more involved with his biological daughter’s life?

EDEN:  Yes!  From day one of meeting Ingo five years ago, he just made it so comfortable for me.  We have had a complete connection.  We share so many similar traits.  For instance, we both love the beach and we have a similar drive.  I will say that our relationship outside of the scenes is what makes those scenes what they are and what makes them fun to watch, and why when you’re watching, you feel like, “How is this not real?”  So, that’s why he is one of my all-time favorite scene partners.

Your mom was, and is, a big GH fan, right?

EDEN:  Yes, she grew up watching GH in her sorority house, and her two crushes were Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher), and I’m their kid on the show!  I remember when I auditioned for Josslyn.  I was given a fake script with a fake character name on it, so, we didn’t really know what my family tree looked like, or anything.  When my mom saw Maurice and Ingo in person for the first time, and I remember her freaking out.  I can’t even imagine what it was like for her.  My mom was just as excited as me to have this opportunity.

Are you at home quarantining, and taking care of yourself during this COVID-19 pandemic that we all find ourselves facing together? How’s that been going for you?

EDEN:  It’s going good.  I’m not complaining about staying in bed. (Laughs)  No, it’s been fun just trying new things and spending time with the family. You know, I’m usually so busy that it’s nice to have a little down time for a minute, but I naturally like to stay present and connect with people on social media, et

What are the fans saying to you most on social media that they want for Joss? 

EDEN:  I am hearing a lot about Cam.  It’s a big, “Is that going to happen?  Is that not going to happen?  Team Cam/Team Not Cam.”  That’s always fun because I love to have rivalries.  That means that people are invested in the story.  I get a lot of Jax things, like, “Where’s Jax?  We need more Jax and Josslyn,” and I completely agree.  However my dream, (and I think what a lot of people want to see) is Josslyn’s rebellion and gearing away from the goody-two-shoes person she is for a minute.

Photo: JPI

That would be in-line and typical for the daughter of Carly, right?

EDEN:  Yeah, that’s what I’m saying.  When I hear about what Carly had done at my age and in the past, I’m like, “I have that DNA.”   Carly had a very painful upbringing with not a lot of parental supervision and support.  She had no father figure growing up, and Josslyn has had two. That really shapes a person and makes them who they are, but I do feel like with all of the pain the Josslyn has gone through; some kind of off-the-rails moment would be fun to play and will be hopefully in her future.

So, what did you think of Eden’s performance of young Carly on today’s episode of GH? Do you want Josslyn to end up romantically with Cameron or someone else? Do you think Josslyn should display a more rebellious side given that she is Carly’s daughter? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
