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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
