On Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers saw the pick-up of Wednesday’s cliffhanger which saw Sabrina’s (Teresa Castillo) lifeless body on the hospital room floor.  As the story progressed, Michael (Chad Duell), Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) and finally Tracy (Jane Elliot) learned that Nurse Sabrina Santiago was murdered, strangled to death.  However, they do not know it’s DA Hornsby (Richard Burgi) who perpetrated the deed!

This evening, Teresa Castillo said her public farewells to her fans and some important GH creatives,   First Castillo took to Instragram sharing a split image of herself and the “Ugly Betty’ version of Sabrina, relating: “4 years ago, this girl walked into the halls of General Hospital and her life was forever changed. Thanks to the amazing cast and crew for a fantastic run. And a special thanks to all you incredible die-hard soap fans for showering me with your love. You guys are the best!”

On Twitter, Castillo thanked some important behind the scenes personnel responsible for bringing her to GH! First, former head writer, Ron Carlivati: “Thank you @carlivatiron for creating such a fun character. It was an honor bringing her to life. #GH” 

Next, EP Frank Valentini whom Teresa expressed,”Thank you @valentinifrank for believing in me, for fighting for me and for all your kindness to me over the last 4 years.”  Finally, GH casting director Mark Teschner;  “And to #MarkTeschner for finding me!!! I had a blast playing Sabrina. Thank you, thank you.

So, what do you think about the sentiments and thank you’s shared by Teresa on social media?  Sad to see her go? Comment below!

CAN’T BELIEVE GH WOULD BRING HER BACK JUST TO TURN AROUND AND LET HER GO. SHE WAS A TERRIFIC ACTRESS AND SHE MADE YOU BELIEVE EVERYTHING WAS REAL. EVERYONE I KNOW THAT WATCHES THE SHOW ALL FEELS THE SAME. SHE IS GOING TO BE MISSED SO MUCH. EVEN IF SHE IS PREGNANT AGAIN (THAT’S THE GOSSIP) THAT WOULD NOT BE A REASON TO FIRE HER. IF THAT IS WHY SHE’S GONE SHE HAS A GREAT LAW SUITE AGAINST GH. THERESA YOU WILL TRULY BE MISSED. PLEASE POST WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO DO NEXT. I WILL BE SURE TO WATCH.

I liked Sabrina,killing her off was senseless. Teresa is a good actress, whomever she was paired with she had chemistry. I was very disappointed when they broke up Sabrina and Patrick. I was happy when Sabrina and Michael got back together,why kill her off. Sorry to see Sabrina go feels like I lost a friend.

What a class act, Teresa you will be greatly missed. I loved Sabrina, and really enjoyed scenes with Emma, even when Patrick and Sabrina ended things. Sabrina had a great heart, loving Emma even upon Robin’s return. I’m very disappointed that the show felt it was necessary to kill off a truly loving character. I adored her “ugly Betty” introduction, and didn’t care for the major make-up, but it a soap, and to have a Latina character on the soap was very important. Thank you Teresa for making many fans love you, you are a superb actress, I wish the… Read more »

What a terrible spoil alert! I haven’t seen Wed, Thur … I will miss her she was great and I wanted great things for Sabrina and Michael! I just pray that they are not letting go of GH,.. If anyone remembers “Loving”. They started murdering all key players and the next thing you know all actors were dead… Please don’t murder our cast ! Love my GH!

When a woman reads a romance novel, she envisions herself in the pages of the book. Just an average person surrounded by beauty and being chased by some rather hunky men. That is what Sabrina was to me. She was every girl. A relatable human being with issues and insecurities but tried her best to overcome them with the help of her friends. I said in an earlier post that she was like Marcy on OLTL. She didn’t fit into that stereotypical mold of a person that would be on a soap. She was a cute girl in a room… Read more »

I totally agree about : Theresa Castillo’ Sabrina… a relatable human being from a male point of view… I loved her because she wasn’t Barbie doll I like that she was sensitive… which made me root for her I never found her hesitation and not finding the right words to express herself… cumbersome… did the ugly betty mode out of the gate help ? OK she drove her character as best she did she was vilified often… she never crumbled I liked her inner strength she imbued in her character the endless lists and recriminations I’d throw at the production… Read more »

I love the sentiments behind your post Cheryl, except Sabrina was physically beautiful even in her “ugly Betty” mode. They couldn’t really hide Teresa’s beauty without makeup or prosthetics which they didn’t use. To be honest, after her transformation I preferred her with her beautiful curly hair instead of straight… And, to be fair, Patrick did fall for Brit’s beauty and sexuality…it was only after Sabrina upped her game that he took notice of her in that way. So “ugly Betty” on GH didn’t get her man…the beauty underneath…her physical makeover and her warm personality got the man. But I… Read more »

Once again the writers do not know how to write for thier charactors. Killing off Children , popular people such as sabrina, If I were them I would wake her from the dead you idiots and learn how to write for Soap opera favorites. There was plenty you could have written. A triangle with the new girl how stupid they are. I have really had enough of them killing off children and very popular people. I am done with General Hospital your writers are idiots. Even I would bring her back that she was working with the police to catch… Read more »

That whole sad sack mopefest with Mikey and the ring made me wince, then Tracy and Felix had to join in. It would serve the idiotic PCPD right if whatever traces of Paul may have remained on that corpse be lost for good….especially since I don’t want to see Richard Burgi’s Paul be the next to… Read more »

I’m quite saddened by this news. I really like her as a person and her character on General Hospital. I was also looking forward to seeing her working with Jeffery Vincent Parise, again. I thought that they had good chemistry between them and it would’ve been a good story line with Sabrina, Joe, and Michael. Good Luck Teresa!!! You will be missed………

Teresa seems like a nice lady……but not sad to see the character go. She just never worked with anyone. And the Ugly Betty storyline was lame. I think when Ron C. was at GH, he just could never accept that his Disney Princess idea failed. Thank goodness FV made the decision to end the character.

More Genie, Anna Tristan, Jon, Lynn, Kristina W., John J., Kin & Jane E. The real legacies of GH.

It wasn’t Frank’s decision. He was fighting for her to not be killed. I liked Sabrina and will miss her. I was looking forward to Michael and Sabrina getting together and becoming a super couple. It sucks that Michael has lost two girlfriends now to death. And poor Felix. Guess that’s one less reason to use his character.

Does it seem to anyone else that ABC might be trying to kill GH? The writing has been all over the place this year, but lately it just seems to have fallen off a cliff. I know Sabrina was not the most popular character to ever grace the halls of General Hospital, but her death seemed rather, um, rushed and slapdash considering the fact that the writing seemed to be setting up a new triangle with her, Michael, and Carlos’s look-a-like doctor brother, Joe. Also, poor Teddy has now been orphaned. You can’t tell me that was the plan all… Read more »

This household is beyond sad to see the character of Sabrina leave the program. We only hope there is a real and definite storyline point to this decision.

Teresa Castillo has impressed us over these past years and we look forward to seeing her in other projects. We thank her for her graciousness online and wish her well.

I think it’s horrible! I don’t know what the hell is happening at Gh but they need to get it together! We are losing our fabulous actors when we need to lose the management! We lost SB, TG, BA, almost RH, now TC, Teresa and Bryan. Gh is not the Gh I love. Too many fan favorites are leaving. GH is sinking!

I definitely appreciated her on GH. I’m sorry the writers took this direction with her character. Why couldn’t it have been Amy? Ugh!

Hey, TPTB over at GH, I know you are busy, but this is the age of INFORMATION, don’t you people read what fan’s like and so on….Good Luck Teresa, you have a beautiful family, a good heart, and you will be fine I am sure!

No, I doubt that was the plan all along…. They probably wanted to get rid of her sooner but you can not fire a pregnant woman. Teresa not only pregnant once but TWICE. …. The law states that you can not fire or let go a pregnant woman/and then there is Maternity leave.. Timing was off (meaning the network would be looking at a lawsuit if they let her go then). And if you noticed the amount of times she has been on since she returned from maternity leave this last time around- It seems awfully convenient that they planned… Read more »

Nice actress…i just didnt like the character…they should had kept her as this geeky nurse who is gossipy with Felix and on recurring status-would had worked better…but that princess makeover and pairing with Patrick just did not work…hey, maybe she will show up on Y&R as a new love interest for Billy-lol

I always liked Sabrina and the actress did a great job. I am sad to see her leave, but if she is leaving to look after her kids it is understandable.

The one thing that makes me laugh is all the people commenting saying Sabrina did not have to be killed off. These are the same people who complained about the character being on too much over and over again.

I will miss her but as they say in soaps they can always come back!

The show can’t keep every single character brought on for a story that has reached its conclusion. The cast is way too large even now. Sabrina fulfilled her storyline and the time for her to go had long since passed.

I am SO disappointed that Shelly and Jean decided to kill Sabrina. I liked the character and Teresa Castillo from the beginning and thought she did a great job. Sabrina wasn’t the cookie-cutter bad girl or vixen; she was everyone’s friend, especially Felix’s. Those flashback scenes between Felix and Sabrina on today’s show were beautiful, and reminded us of the special relationship they had, and likely the actors as well. I’m very frustrated at the writing lately, and each episode seems to take forever to watch, instead of seeming to fly by the way they did in the 1980s when… Read more »

It was a total waste to bring Sabrina back only to kill her. In her messages she’s such a class act she didn’t tell why or who made this decision. On the other hand she didn’t say, ” I wanted time home to raise my babies….” etc. I am very upset that they would have a second woman Michael loves killed and someone who Tracy likes so much. Such a chemistry between Teresa and Jane elliot as friends. I loved that. And Sabrina and Felix- how often do you see realistic male/female platonic friendships on soaps- or TV for that… Read more »

I can’t see the point of any of this serial killer storyline. Paul is the killer ?? Sabrina is murdered ?? Next Julian will walk free ! I thought they were going back to the hospital more – Sabrina would have been an asset to the scene there. At least Monica is still alive.

WHY cant GH pay it? Their budget is cut each year. Say 5 actors want a raise from winning Emmys. Where do they make up that money? By cutting others salaries, or firing other actors? There isnt money to give them more.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.
