On Wednesday’s upcoming episode of General Hospital, Josslyn will look different!  That’s because Eden McCoy has taken over the role of Carly (Laura Wright) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher) daughter, Josslyn.

McCoy replaces Hannah Nordberg, who has been working on other outside projects including the Dolly Parton TV bio-pic, Coat of Many Colors.

The young actress posted her excitement on her GH debut on her facebook page within the last 24 hours.  Eden stated: “I still can’t believe it but please watch me as Josslyn Jacks in my first episode of General Hospital on ABC Wednesday- very grateful to be a part of this amazing cast and show – much more to come – i love my GH family already!”

So, how will the new Josslyn fit into the Corinthos family drama and GH’s younger set?  Share your comments below as we welcome Eden to GH!

well, the aged Josslyn..brought in playmate for TJ and Molly..
I hope the snooze dual don’t go the way of teenagers, teenasgers don’t watch soaps lol and grownups usually don’t like teens upfront.

Ha! I agree — not into Teenage stories. I can handle bits of Spencer but no romances with Emma or tween love affairs for me.

College students are young adults, high school are teenagers in terms of soap stories; so Joss who is preteen or early teen will not be hanging out with college students which was suoo comments. IYes, technically eighteen and nineteen has the world teen in it, but soaps treat college age characters as adults.

I’ve been watching soaps as a teen and I’m only 25 now. It would depend if teen-centric stories are compellingly relevant the way other soaps have done everywhere else: Boys Over Flowers, Hollyoaks, Neighbours, and so on and so forth.

Have they sorased Spencer??? surely this older actress won’t be a ten year olds love interest..how creepy

She is now a teen ager as is the actress. .how in earth can they justify this. .Spencer and the portrayer are 10 years old add is emma..

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

she does look a little older when i watched today…i dont know why they would do that but ive seen some weird casting with no regard to age…on Edge Of Night 40something Nicole was suddenly 20something when they recast…on Days Will was born before his stepdad EJ who suddenly was older…they dont do this on my favorite British soap Coranation Street..their children age normally like in real life, and their stories are more like real life too…wish our soaps were like that.

I don’t know Jax, Robin. But, I’ve heard so much about him, I feel as if I do. I think it would be very appetizing if he did come back to PC and create some sort of devilish stir between Carly and Sonny. I would enjoy eating up that mess. Perhaps Jax will declare his undying love for Carly, sending Sonny into a fit of sputtering, stuttering and lisping galore.

What about the kid romance with Josslyn and Cameron? Is he being aged as well? But then again, Spencer would definitely go for an older girl 😉

They should’ve saved her for the Spencer/Emma age group. Total mistake in casting/aging this character.

Tim

They didn’t age her enough,she looks to be around 13,still to young to hang out with Molly and TJ.

It’s ridiculous considering that little Jake’s supposed death helped to save a younger Josslyn. This was even talked about a couple months back when little Jake came back. So now they have to go and f*** that up. Here’s an idea…bring back Monica and have her file a civil lawsuit against Sonny for him being responsible for A.J.’s death. I’d like to see her go after him financially in every way possible and allow the courts to go through all of his business dealings. That would at least be a start to dismantling his little empire. After all, Monica has… Read more »

Good point about Jake’s supposed death helping to save Josslyn. If not him, who and why?

Love the idea of Monica filing a suit against Sonny. Who would be her lawyer…Alexis or Diane? She’d probably have to find another lawyer with no conflict of interests…maybe..since this is a soap. I guess her Judge boyfriend wouldn’t be able to sit on the bench to hear this case, but he could provide great legal advice during pillow talk.

CeeCee

That works for me, Liam.
Why do the fans have to do all the work? The writers could come up with these ideas on their own. LOL.

Andrea
Guest

Monica suing Sonny is actually a wonderful idea and would bring back the heart of this show. The Sonny propping for this little weasel is so awful and not interesting. Time to make a man out of Sonny once and for all! I love your idea!

Lia
Guest
Lia

That’s a great idea Liam. Monica needs justice in some way, so hitting him in the pocket will suffice, until someone kills him.

su0000
Guest
su0000

IF, Monica filing a suit against Sonny all the skeletons would come out of the closet.
AJ, was bad person. He shot his father in the back lol
And– AJ was choking Ava with intent to kill her!
Sonny had a bipolar moment, and AJ choking/strangling Ava was not cool lol ..

remember; we knew AJ did not kill Connie, Sonny did not know, he was told AJ killed Connie/Kelly.. yah Sonny lost it taking care of business on man who how killed his love his wife to be..

Ava, AJ and Sonny are even up, all are killers.. killers killing killers- even up!

Good idea, Liam. This might get me watching GH again. This is week six without watching GH.

So far we’ve seen more than a little rebellion and independence from Josslyn, and not much parenting on Carly’s part. So if Jax didn’t work wonders with her during the summer (and he wasn’t successful with Carly in the past), she just might give Morgan a run for his money in acting out. Wish they would bring Jax back. He could help the Q’s take back ELQ from Nik.

I’m glad they recast the role. No offense to Hannah, but I couldn’t stand the 2014-2015 Josslyn. She used to be so nice to Franco and he was trying his best to be the best role model to her and all she wanted to do was to get rid of him just because he had a brian tumor that made him do horrible acts, acts he now regrets. I reallly hope they decide to redemm the character with this new Josslyn.

Shay

Well, seeing that HN’s Joss was my favorite kiddo on this show, I’m none too thrilled….she just had that perfect “Bad Seed” attitude down pat…I guess with spooky “Little Jake” back, her prickly, persnickety personality was no longer as essential. Still, the fact that Joss is Carly’s offspring will mean that she’ll never be a proper miss, rather a real handful no matter the actress portraying her.

Ugh, Nice to have her; afraid of the Age Progression!!

I hope They remember that WE Remember!!

With the age progression, what group is she supposed to fit in with? She’s too young for TJ/Molly and too old for Spencer/Cam/Emma. I don’t see much of a s/l for this character.

Brian

They are going to need to make Cam the same age IMO. Isn’t Joss the same age as Little Jake though? Oh they kinda messed up by bringing him back on the show.

I dont know if she can act or not BUT she could sure pass for Carly and Jax’s daughter! Good luck honey.

At least this one doesn’t look like she crawled out from Children of the Corn. Last two Josselyn’s were creeeeeepy!!!

I just hope this girl isn’t taller than the other kids. The former Joss was so tall she looked like a pre-teen standing next to Emma and Spencer. This girl is cuter, and you need that for a serious rival for Emma.

So now Joss is older than Cam,Emma,Jake and Spencer,but still younger than Molly and TJ?

People need to stop bashing the teen scene. Teen cast in the background set up the show for 15 years for the future. If we didn’t have a teen scene in the past there would be NO show right now. Think about it all the current front burners are from the teen scen 15 to 20 years ago Nik, , Liz and Jason. Dillion Maxie and luLu. And going way back it was a teen love triangles that saved the show Scotty, like and Laura. Now I get that u don’t want them front and center all the time but… Read more »

Josh Swickard and Laura Wright Talk GH’s 60th Anniversary, Nurses’ Ball & The Loss of Beloved Colleagues

Today, we celebrate the incredible milestone of ABC’s General Hospital officially turning 60-years-old.  The soap debuted on this day on April 1,1963.

Two of the series current stars: Josh Swickard (Chase) and Laura Wright (Carly) chatted with Michael Fairman earlier this week for a conversation on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel.

Josh and Laura share what it has meant to be part of such an iconic television show, plus the two actors recall their GH  ‘audition’ stories, and who took them under their wing when they came to the GH set for the first time.

Photo: ABC

In addition, with the GH Nurses’ Ball returning next week, Josh teases what number he might sing when Chase takes the Nurses’ Ball stage, and if Chase will repair his relationship with Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton) during the episodes.

Photo: LauraWrightIG

Laura looks into what the future of Carly’s relationship with Drew (Cameron Mathison) might look like, and both actors express their sadness on the tragic and sudden death of their beloved producer, Nneka Garland, earlier in the week, as well as the recent passing of cast member Sonya Eddy (Epiphany) and the tribute episode that GH just aired in her honor.

You can watch the full interview with Josh and Laura below.

Now, let us know, are you rooting for Chase and Brook Lynn to get back together during the Nurses’ Ball? Are you rooting for Carly and Drew to stay together, or would you want Carly back with Sonny?  Let us know in the comment section.

GH’s Maurice Benard Gets Emotional During Surprise Family Reunion

Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) was a guest today on the ABC syndicated-talker, Tamron Hall.  The three-time Daytime Emmy-winning star was on the show to promote GH’s 60th anniversary, which is on April 1st, while the series celebrates next week with the return of the Nurses’ Ball.

During his segment, Tamron surprised Maurice with an emotional reunion with his daughter Heather who has been in the U.S. Air Force on the east coast.  Benard had not seen her since October of last year.

Tamron’s set-up of the Benard surprise happened when she discussed his family and in particular, his daughter, Heather Andresen, who is his wife Paula Benard’s half-sister.  Hall said when her picture came on the screen, “This is her. You haven’t seen her in awhile.” But, Benard cut her off knowing exactly what was coming next and said, “Oh, don’t do that.”

Maurice legally adopted Heather when she was 15. So when Hall said, “You’re not the only one who made a special trip today. She wanted to be here … because I know it was rough getting on that plane and coming here,” Maurice was struggling to hold it together.

Tamron was referencing Maurice’s fear of flying, and in particular flying solo, which is what he had to do for this publicity tour in New York.  Next, Tamron brought out, “Airman First Class Heather Andresen.”

Benard and Heather embraced, as Maurice continued to get emotional and told Heather how proud of her he was.

You can watch the very touching moment below.

Then let us know, what did you think of Tamron’s surprise for Maurice? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Friends, Loved Ones and Colleagues Gather to Mourn the Loss of Epiphany

There is a connection between the audience, the actors, and the characters they play in the soap opera genre that is so unique, that no other form of entertainment has it.  What we have seen play out leading to the highly-anticipated tribute episode for the late Sonya Eddy (Epiphany, GH) is the perfect example.

Here on this site, when we posted items and previews on this upcoming episode, fans were ready to also mourn the loss of the character and the actress they loved. Many of the GH cast already shared that being on the set the day of the taping of this tribute to Sonya was cathartic, real and raw as they were also honoring and mourning their beloved co-star.

Photo: ABC

If you watched yesterday’s episode of GH, you could see the utmost care that was taken by the GH writing team, who wrote a beautiful script and send-off.  We are sure, many of you reached for the hankies throughout, and well you should, it was extraordinarily touching.

When we start, Port Charles residents are already dressed and heading to Epiphany’s memorial service, headed up by Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) at the GH chapel. Elizabeth is uptight, yet on the verge of breaking down over the loss of her dearest friend and champion. Liz tells Finn (Michael Easton) that she believes Epiphany was disappointed with her in the end for the whole Esme and Nikolas mess that she was a part of.  She so wishes she could have made it right with her before she died. It is Liz’s hope that this memorial is the perfect way to make it up to her mentor and friend.

One of the key questions that everyone wanted answers to was finding out just how did the writers decide to kill-off Epiphany. We learned much of the back-story from special guest, Yvette Nicole Brown, who was excellent as the woman Epiphany saved before her untimely death. Making this even more emotional was the fact that in real-life, Yvette was one of Sonya Eddy’s closest friends.

The woman reveals to Liz and Finn that her car crashed into an electrical pole. Epiphany happened to be driving by and ran out to save her life.  She did so successfully, but when the woman asked for an update on Epiphany, she learned that she collapsed at the scene from smoke inhalation, but as Elizabeth put together, Epiphany had a heart attack, because she had a pre-existing heart condition.

Photo: ABV

Elsewhere, Anna (Finola Hughes) is mourning Epiphany and cannot attend the memorial because she is currently tucked away at the safe house. However, she gets a surprise visitor! Emma Drake (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) has come back to Port Charles to attend the memorial and gives her grandmother the biggest of hugs.  Emma is attending in place of her parents, Patrick and Robin, who couldn’t get away from their doctor duties to fly back to town in time.

Next, we learn Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy) is the executor of Epiphany’s will.  She seeks out the former head nurse’s mortal enemy, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), with some written instructions to be handled following the memorial service.

Photo: ABC

Meanwhile, several returns helped round out Epiphany’s history including: Marc Anthony Samuel as Nurse Felix, and Drew Cheetwood as her ex-boyfriend, Milo. In fact, Drew was very heart-tugging in scenes with Maurice Benard (Sonny).

Photo: ABC

Marshall (Robert Gossett) is blaming himself for Epiphany’s death telling Portia (Brooke Kerr) and Curtis (Donnell Turner) that if he hadn’t pushed her to go after her dreams as a doctor, maybe her life would have been saved.  Portia tells him that’s nonsense, he actually helped Epiphany achieve her goal.

Photo: ABC

When it’s time for the memorial, it starts with Elizabeth, and one by one people get up and speak on Epiphany including: Deanna (Dionni Michelle Collins), Portia, Sonny, Carly (Laura Wright) and others. Throughout, we get flashbacks of how the she impacted their lives.  At the end of the service, Diane gets up and tells everyone Epiphany has asked that everyone go to the roof following the memorial.  Once on the GH rooftop, Diane reads a letter from Epiphany that she wants no more tears and to be celebrated.  Cue the fireworks, that were set off and lit by none other than Liesl! Epiphany’s voice is heard singing her signature Nurses Ball song, “You’re Not Alone” as everyone takes a moment to reflect and honor her, including Anna alone at the safe house watching the fireworks in the sky.

Photo: ABC

At the end of the episode, Elizabeth, who has returned to the GH chapel, receives a phone call from Monica (and we hear Leslie Charleson’s voice).  Monica tells her she received a glowing letter of recommendation from Epiphany a few days ago and reads it aloud to her. Liz learns that Pif has suggested to the GH hospital board that despite the mistakes she had made, that Liz become the head nurse at the hospital.  Monica tells her she plans on taking this to the board. Elizabeth is overcome in a beautifully-played moment by Becky Herbst.

Photo: ABC

The conclusion came too soon for us as we knew we had to say goodbye to our friend, Sonya, who was so memorable as the beloved Epiphany. A series of flashbacks, reminding us why we fell in love with the tough-as-nails GH nurse in the first place, began to play. Later, we see that Epiphany has joined the GH wall of remembrance for those revered doctors and nurses we have lost.

This was definitely a labor of love for the production, the writers, the crew, and the cast and it showed in the final product.  All we can say is … we have always loved Epiphany, and GH will never be the same without the presence of Sonya Eddy.

Now, share your thoughts on the Sonya Eddy tribute episode in the comment section below.
