Donna Mills Talks About Her Return To General Hospital!

Knots Landing favorite Donna Mills has checked back into the all the drama of ABC’s General Hospital over the last few episodes!  Mills who plays the, shall we say, not so nice, Madeline Reeves, has plenty of story to dish about to ABC 7 Los Angeles Entertainment guru, George Pennacchio

As far as what fans can GH expect this time out from Madeline, Mills related, “She’s going to have more than one side.  I think she’s got a really bad side. I mean, she’s kind of blind to the stuff she’s done that’s bad!’  And the “stuff” that Madeline has done have included putting her daughter Nina (Michelle Stafford) into a coma for 20 years!

While Donna could not reveal all the hush-hush details of her return to the series since earlier this year, she did take note that working on daytime drama’s hectic shooting schedule and time constraints have given her some pause!

Mills revealed: “I hate the pace! Are you kidding me? Who would like this? No, it’s terrible! You have no chance to rehearse and feel it and get it and everything like that. It’s all by the seat of your pants. I give all the actors who do it every single day a lot of credit, because it’s hard!”

Now after the jump, watch the Donna Mills segment with ABC7 which contains these quotes above and more, and some clips from her most recent on-air scenes.  Then comment below on: if you are glad to see the one and only Donna Mills back on GH for another round of villainy? What do you think will happen between Madeline, Nathan (Ryan Paevey), Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and the aforementioned Nina?

Absolutely love Donna Mills-have since her days on Knots Landing as Abby Ewing! A great addition to the cast-been waiting for her to return to Port Charles! Love Michelle Stafford too. She switches gears so easily-from feeling betrayed and hurt to being deceitful and vindictive. Love it!

Aww, I can beat you, DMR- I remember Donna from a late 60’s soap called Love Is a Many Splendored Thing ( I was too young to watch it- but I remember my mom watching it). She was also Clint Eastwood’s love interest in Play Misty for Me (back in the days when they cast him with women close to his own age). Donna is 73- I’m presuming she’s had work but it looks very natural- she looks younger than her age but not plastic or puffy.

She looks great! I’m wondering if anyone knows the designer of the blue dress she wore on the show which aired on Friday October 17th. She looked beautiful!

Donna Mills hasn’t aged a bit! Beautiful as ever! Michelle Stafford is an amazing actress, missing her on Y&R!

I have always loved Donna Mills so happy to see her back for a while. I think it is great she stops in from time to time.

If for any other reason to have Donna on GH, its nice to hear a prime time TV legend give daytime actors the credit they truly deserve!

Julie Merritt

It is good to have her back.Now maybe she will shed some light on who Nathan’s father is.

dmr

Unfortunately, I am guessing Nathan’s father is Jerry Jax. Liesel said that the truth about his father is “far worse” that Victor Cassadine being his father…

CeeCee

Makes sense, dmr. I suppose one could argue that Jerry’s reappearance is sort of a hint?

Donna Mills is a pro and doing a great job even without the rehearsals…yes, its hard but you couldnt tell it by Donnas great performance and i love it when she and K.G. are in scenes together…i wonder if this time around is about Nina’s revenge on her mother and if it means Mad will reveal Kiki is really Nina’s daughter!!! GH has improved so much that it now ties with Days as my favorite top daytime soaps!!!

dmr
dmr

This past week, I thought the same thing about Mad stealing Nina’s baby (Kiki) and giving it to Ava. 1). Nina would have no ties to Silas after Mad made her divorce him after his affair with Ava. 2). Ava would have thought that the baby would bring her and Silas back together. The only probelm I am seeing with this storyline, is that Kiki will have more air-time. With any luck, if Nina is her mother, maybe she will refer to Kiki as Lauren-her real name. That may make the character less annoying to me.
P.S. Days has been awesome! Love Days!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Days has had a great week too…i see Allison Sweeny and James Scott emmy nominated next year!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Yes, i believe Lauren would make a big difference!!!

Timmm
Timmm

Isnt that the truth, a simple name change would make Kiki so much more tolerable.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I am so glad you are beginning to see that, dmr. And, I do hope Kiki’s real name will make a difference to you. I remember you were not too receptive to either the character or the actress. We all have our favorites and our opinions. Michael is another story…lol.
From day one jimh and I kept hammering the fact that Kiki was Nina’s. I hope we don’t end up making fools of ourselves, right, jimh? LOL.
dmr, I promise you that once Kristen is given the right role…the role where she can show her talent, you will finally see what I see. Am I making any sense?

Johnnie

I am curious why a thread about Donna Mills and GH has a comment about Days. Put that in the threads about Days. Imagine how upset people would be if GH were brought up in the Days thread.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yeah, jimh. I had a feeling that Madeline was about to confess to her sister Liesl that Kiki was Nina’s, when Natan interrupted.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Thats what i thought too but i also knew it was a little too soon…i can see Kiki in some sort of dangerous situation when the truth comes out…maybe its even Nina who will save her life…that would be a lot better than my previous guess!!!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yeah, could happen, jimh. Making Nina a heroine would surely quash any hostility anyone may have against her. Kiki will even need a transfusion ….she has a rare blood type, which only Nina can supply….ergo, mother and child discover each other.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hey, guys. Should I stop using my nickname too?

Shay

Your nickname is perfectly wonderful, CeeCee….it sounds like a sweet sorority sister, whereas “Kiki” conjures up visions of strippers!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, Shay.
Thank you., for that. My older brother was two when I was born and he couldn’t say Cecelia; he called me CeeCee….so, it stuck.
I just do not understand how ‘Kiki’ was derived from ‘Lauren’. Go figure!

So happy DM is back. I figured she would be so but it was hush hush that I was actually (somewhat) surprised when she opened the door last Friday. Hope she sticks around for a longer period of time. I can’t imagine anyone NOT being happy about someone like DM being on GH – except for those who always whine about hating the newbies, bring back the vets, etc.

Speaking of that – on the business end of things – Executive Producers and Writers are paid certain sums of money for characters they create, so there is a reason new characters and families are introduced, especially during a regime change. Instead of complaining about the newbies, be happy that TPTB are bringing back plenty of veterans as well.

k/kay
k/kay

I have heard that over the years about new characters however RC denied it as have others. I think it is more of them wanting to put their stamp on things. As far as him bringing veterans back some of them he could leave off the set they have had so much work done it is painful for me as a viewer to watch.

Matty
Matty

That’s absolutely true. The writers get a higher residual income for characters they created.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Newbies and Vets on GH are currently a good mix…show seems to be balancing them together so much better recently and the show is soooo much greater for it…

You said it perfectly Jim H. I like Nina, but she was in a vacuum. She has previously shown chemistry with some of the other cast the brief moments she their paths crossed: Obrecht, Britt, James (J)-why hasn’t brother and sister visited much? Let’s not forget Ava.

I’ve been screaming for a month for the writers to get her away from Silas, get into some new clothes instead of those 3 outfits she wore all the time, get her up out of that wheelchair (yea) & get her a job, a brownstone w/Franco & a couple friends. A job would allow her to interact w/more cast members. I’d love for her to have scenes w/Sonny!!! Could she be bipolar or is that totally different behaviors than the ones she’s been displaying?

I even liked Silas with Ava today, Rosalie “Ro” with Nathan, Sabrina and Michael, heck even Sonny and Rosalie (has he tried to bed her yet? She fit his prerequisite: breathing Just sayin’…Yeah I like that GH is mixing it up finally.

Charming interview, first class Lady…Donna was always able to put the most subtle humor in her work, a “self-aware” self pity, and yes sarcasm. I do hope she gets to develop multi-facets of her character amid a tighter rhythm…she seems revived by the experience of daytime (I know she was originally from this world.) And truly pleased by her fans.

dmr

Donna is very classy and I love having her on the show! I love her scenes with Kathleen Gati-always comedic-two great, talented actresses that I enjoy watching!

So Happy to have Magda back. Does it get any better with her and Liesel’s scenes. Can’t wait for Madeline and Nina to cross paths.

I absolutely agree, Max-1,000% !!!

She’s showing these so-so actors how its done.

dmr

I was thinking the same thing! Imagine how intimidating they must feel while in scenes with her, or even just watching her from behind the scenes? She’s incredible! Love Donna Mills!

Timmm

Shes a legend BUT some of the GH actors are above so-so and could easily have been on Knots Landing.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Donna M. certainly is showing her stuff…she is fantastic. I will relish the meeting between her and Nina. Dynamite !!! Michelle Stafford face to face…toe to toe against Donna a Mills. What a spectacle!
Methinks Nina had a hellish childhood, thanks to her mother. Now, she is unleashing all the horrors of her haunting past. Halloween is nigh, everyone…LOL.
Who to believe? The money-hungry mother who would send her own daughter under the bus?……or, the hurt, wistful daughter?
Well, let’s look at it this way…Donna Mills is an apparition…temporary. Michelle Stafford is here to stay.

Ces

I happen to think those “So-so” actors are better than Donna Mills’ acting. I give props to several of GH’s fine performers.

jonboy
jonboy

Name one. Seriously. Watch Mills, not just delivering her lines, but her movements, her expressions. Then watch the others and tell me who is the superior actor. And if you say Maurice Benard I’ll throw up on my laptop keyboard.

Timmm
Timmm

jonboy, your laptop is safe, not a big fan of Maurice’s acting. He measures his words too much! Donna Mills is a legend, no doubt. I would put Nina, Ava, or Lisel up against her any day.

Laurie

Jonboy,

Carolyn Hennesy (Diane)
Jonathan Jackson (Lucky)
Thaao Penghlis (Victor)

Would do well in scenes with Donna Mills, IMO. They all have good timing and act using facial expressions as well. They all have primetime experience as well. JJ is on a primetime “soapish” series called Nashville right now.

I started to say Steve Burton to rile you up, but I thought better of it. Lol

CeeCee
CeeCee

This is one classy lady. She is 73 and has obviously had facial plastic surgery (much more than a facelift). But, I applaud her for not going overboard.Her skin does not look stretched at all….same applies to Susan Lucci, Morgan Fairchild, Deidra Hall , Suzanne Summers etc. These ladies, from the same generation, look amazing….not so Victoria Principal or Joan Van Ark, to mention two.
I am wondering how Madeline will explain herself away….it’s a soap; anything goes and everything is acceptable, if not plausible. She put her daughter in a coma and she’s free? Wow! It makes me wonder if my mother would ever do anything like that….KIDDING, MA…..LOL.
I doubt very much if Nina will ever forgive her….at least, not in her present state of mind. Does Madeline expect forgiveness? She is obviously shrugging it off by assuming and VERBALIZING that she did what she did for the greater good. Ya, right!
According to Madeline Silas was the catalyst for Niina’ s misfortune…uhm, misadventures, rather!
To be fair, Silas did not put Nina in a coma. Madeline’s brain-function is in worse shape than Nina’s…..let’s not forget Liesl’s brain either!! Nina has a perfectly feasible reason for her skewed way of viewing the world and the people who hurt her, right now….I wonder what Madeline’s story is. This ought to be good….!!!
Ahh, Nathan, my beautiful, Prince Valiant… What will you do to untangle yourself from the insanity? I hope Hal Foster has a good ending in store for you….LOL

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Donna looks amazing…i remember one of her long forgotten movies…’Live Again, Die Again’ where her character was in a cryongenitic chamber(i think) and came make 30 years later still looking the same but someone tries to kill her…i believe Walter Pigeon was her costar who played her aged husband and her children were now older than her(almost like a soap…lol) and it was made in the early 1970s…ill have to google it later to be certain and check out utube hoping its there…i havent seen it since i was a teen!!!

Timmm

I think its available on VHS! :}

When you mention Morgan Fairchild, what a hottie, it reminds me of Tracey E. Bregman of Y&R. She looks amazing, youthful, and delicious. Are Michael’s blue pills really necessary!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Ha, Ha, Timmm. I’m not a medical doctor….I only understand the law of physics…LOL.
But, I get it , Timmm. With a wife who looks like that, why does he need reinforcement !!…LOL.
I believe the problem may be twofold….physical and psychological…..I’ll find out in 30-40 years?…kidding.

The movie you replied to me about staring Donna Mills…i say thanks for the info…just spoke to my sister who said she seen it on youtube…i hope she’s right but i wouldnt mind it on vhs…im going to start looking for it…thanks again!!!

She’s doing a great job, and I’ve loved seeing her on GH. But if her comments are any indication, I don’t know how much more we’ll get to see of her. I just hope she and Nina have some great showdown scenes before she leaves!

CeeCee

You can bet on that showdown, Jenny B…..and then some…lol

Love Donna Mills. Knots Landing was must-see-TV! So glad to have her back in Port Charles.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, man. That’s the big secret Maddie has to divulge? That Nina is a violent nut case? C’mon. I wonder how much truth is in that premise.
Is Maddie excusing her less -than- motherly warmth by making up this stuff? I don’t know where this is going. I am not saying Maddie is lying…just speculating, that’s all.
Next, she will say that she did what she did because she loved her daughter.
I don’t know if I buy that. So far, I have not seen Nina be violent against anyone…objects, yes, people, no! Maybe that will come. But, I certainly hope not.
Could it be that Mad–die committed Nina to an asylum so she could control her money? Nina was/is the one with the millions…has /had all the control to her funds. Perhaps that was the only way for Maddie to get Nina’s money. Perhaps she is one of those women who cannot control her spending…and, she had no money. But, Nina did.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

You could be right about the asylum part…maybe Nina was never in a coma at all…maybe Maddie drugged Nina and had her committed to get her hands on Nina’s inheritance and told Silas Nina was in a coma … that is why he was kept from seeing her…so Silas wouldnt learn the truth…Maddie is a Baddie…lol

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yes, yes, jimh. And, if Nina shows signs of violence, it could be from the meds. Good thinking, jimh. Bravo!

MBmomof3
MBmomof3

Nathan mentioned visiting Nina at Crichton-Clarke many times when he was growing up.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I had another crazy thought, jimh. Could there be a link between Maddie and the Cassadines?….Crichton-Clark seems to be very popular. I wonder what else went on in there. Maybe Kiki was born in that very Scarsdale madhouse, called a clinic.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

MBmomof3 is right…Nathan did mention seeing Nina at Critchen Clarke while growing up…unless who he had seen wasnt Nina…Maddie couldve shown him a Nina double at that clinic while the real Nina was in an asylum…?

Shay
Shay

Because when in doubt always blame the mother? Nah. I don’t harbor any skepticism regarding what Madeline is asserting….just as I have previously implied, Nina was BORN mentally disturbed….an inherent bad seed!!! Personally, I’d award Mama Reeve a public service medal for keeping that ferociously feral femme sequestered from the streets for the past 20+ years!!!! Perhaps the real reason Maddie dumped Kiki in Ava’s lap is that she thought the apple wouldn’t fall far from the tizzy tree and felt Ms. Jerome deserved the burden of rearing an impossibly insane child, exactly as she was forced to do! Just a thought! All I can add is that the PCPD better break out the tranq darts if they have any prayer of apprehending that loony tune without further incident.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

You get some good ideas CeeCee about Maddie and the Cassidine link…maybe Ninas father was one and the Reeves name was just an alias???

CeeCee
CeeCee

Maybe Faison played house with both sisters. Maybe he fathered all three Westmore kids. I’d love that.

Shay
Shay

The only way I could envision all the Westbournes being fathered by the same man is if Magda and Liesl’s father did a “Fritzl” on them…..maybe even “Daddy Dearest” was “The Balkan?” (Just kidding….) But other than that far-fetched supposition, I cannot go for your similar theories, jimh and CeeCee. The timelines really don’t suggest that…..while Dr. O. was doing the European circuit amongst all those high-flying criminals, Madeline was taking the NY society scene by storm…..perhaps Nina is Trevor Lansing’s daughter? Would certainly explain so much.

I love Donna Mills. She is classy, sassy and a terrific actress. Donna is a sexy woman, wow she is 73 years old. You go girl. I hope Madeline stays on General Hospital.

“Is it a doll hospital?”

Donna Mills needs a special Emmy for that line delivery

Timmm
Timmm

Good point CeeCee. Money is the root of all evil so I see this being a strong motive on Mad’s part. Plus, Nina is here to stay and Maddie is not so in the end, Madeline will go. She may want written off for good after her expression of frustration on how fast daytime works. If thats the case, maybe we have a murder mystery that involves Nina, Silas, Ava, and Lisel? Cannot wait to see the PCPD gum this up! Maybe Robert Scorpio rolls into town to assist Anna? BTW, too bad Robert hasnt been around, Duke has been seen about as much as Fluke lately! Robert could rekindle his romance with Anna.

Timmm..
Tristan Rogers is wasted in Y&Y, really wasted, it’s sad to have a great talent go unused….
Scorpio is need in Port Charles!! .. I hope he returns..
He is sooooooo much better as Scorpio than whats his name on Y&R..

ditto on Tristan Rogers — Anna belongs with Robert not Duke. Not that Duke is even around!

I love Tristan and miss Scorpio…would be great to have him back…on contract…at GH! But in all fairness Ian Buchanan (Duke) is wonderful too. Back in the day he was just this gorgeous, romantic, albeit criminal/turned good guy. They’re just not giving him any airtime…what a waste.

Christy

I love that she’s back! She’ll always be “loveable, ole Abby” to me, but I do enjoy seeing her again….

and every time she shows up, I think of William Devane! Oh, if only they could get him to show up too! 🙂

MBmomof3

I think of William DeVane too. I wonder if he’s aged as well as DM?

Christy

I have seen him on several things since knotts landing, namely Stargate SG1, but also movies, and he looks good and every time he was on SG1 I always thought of Greg on Knotts! Same for Paige… she was on Desperate Housewives and loved her on Noises Off movie. Funny movie.

Shay
Shay

He appeared on Revenge a few seasons back as Conrad’s father…still the same old William Devane….a bit grayer, but just as charming, cunning (and corrupt) as ever!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I was hoping Nina’s father wasnt dead and would make guests performances played by William Devane!!!

rebecca1
rebecca1

With the exception of K/kay…I’m in the minority here but I’m not a huge Donna Mills fan. Never watched Knots Landing or any other show she was on but of course I know who she is. She’s just known…(maybe I caught her on a Lifetime movie with my mom…).

She’s gorgeous. No doubt…as a young woman and an older one. But I see nothing special about her acting…and I think “Dr. O” stole the scene.

As for Nina? Maybe she had psychological issues before her coma…was borderline dangerous…and Madeleine was afraid for her unborn grandchild’s life. Thus, she gave Kiki to Ava with the promise that Ava’d never tell the truth, including the fact that Silas is the father…which is why Ava lied to Kiki and told her Franco was her father.

I don’t mind the name Kiki. Starr wasn’t exactly an everyday name in OLTL portrayal…and it’s heads and shoulders above Rocco!

sorry…not k/kay…ces!

I’m glad Donna Mills is back on the show. I also thought that Kiki is Nina’s child; I believe that’s what Madeline came back to say.
I want Donna Mills to play this part as only she can; stupendously.
Perhaps , the pace wasn’t as fast in the 60s when she was on Love is a Many Splendored Thing where she and Leslie Charleston played sisters in love with the same man, David Birney.
Welcome back, Donna !

I have loved Donna Mills since her role on Love is a Many Splendid Thing. She brings such class to all rolls not matter how nasty. I have never watched GH before but I will definitely start now. You look absolutely fabulous Donna…and you still have that silky voice that can cut a man in two when it chooses

General Hospital

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Courtesy/ABC

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
