FIRST LOOK: Trent Dawson As GH’s Huxley!

Courtesy/ABC

Circle June 13th for the debut of As the World Turns alum Trent Dawson when he makes his highly-anticipated GH debut in the role of Huxley!

In this first look photo released by ABC from the June 20th episode of the daytime drama series, Huxley is looking rather spiffy, but talking on the phone to someone! Wonder who it is?

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now) Dawson says of his new soap opera alter-ego: “Huxley is a heightened character and very British – that’s the way I’m playing him so far and no one’s told me to stop”

As viewers know Dawson’s role is said to be short term, but that was the same thing that happened to the actor when he came on board to play Henry Coleman on ATWT, The actor commented: “Henry was supposed to be on for a few weeks and he went on for years, so you never know.”

What do you think of the first look of Dawson as GH’s Huxley? Do you hope fans will enjoy Huxley so much that we could be seeing Trent for a long time to come in Port Charles?  What storyline do you think Huxley will be involved in? Comment below!

Why are all the characters “short term”? And why don’t they build on the “core” of actors we know and love instead of bringing on a slew of “short term”? We know the core actors and wish for them to get substantial story lines (think Genie Francis!).

Because sometimes to advance stories you need other people. It’s as simple as that. The character serves a purpose and then they are gone. I have no idea what his role will be, but no matter how big GH’s case is, sometimes you need other people to complete a storyline. Hypothetically, if this story requires a British Jewel Thief who will work with Hayden to try to sell some of the diamonds, who currently on the canvas could play that role? Again, I’m making up what his story is, but the point is that outside characters are not only necessary,… Read more »

I mostly agree with you Nancy, but AJ also makes a good point regarding subsidiary characters who come on TEMPORARILY to assist in individual stories. Sometimes they make such a good impression they’re kept on. That appeals to my favoring the idea of earning a role versus just having it handed to you because you are a familiar face. But my initial argument that existing characters being underused on GH still stands.

Sorry for repeating myself here, But…. Coronation Street has twice the number of characters of any of the final four. And it’s thirty minutes. It keeps everything moving. You can’t blame new characters for why Favorite Character A doesn’t get enough screen time. On GH Sonny and Carly do the same scene (I’m worried about Morgan) three times on Monday, three times on Tuesday and three more times on Thursday. My point is that all four shows don’t move anything along, not within on day or one week. Watch Coronation Street. They keep it moving. It’s a big canvas of… Read more »

Looking forward in seeing Dawson on GH. He will be great. I love his acting. Now we need to recast Audry Hardy with Erika Slezak. Erika would be terrific as the new Audry.

I need to know; will Huxley be a bad guy or a good guy?
GH desperately needs a real bonafide villain ..

(like.. Ray Gardner or Billy Clyde Tuggle)
dammmit, I wanna love to hate someone that can raise my blood pressure !

Omar
Guest

I so agree..GH needs that villain so bad.

Dr O. is just not doing it!! Franco character has been basically a snorefest..And Heather (who is great) just pops up once a year… Queen Cassadine is “dead” and all the mob bosses are not really bonafide villains.

I want to scream at my screen and love to hate that evil bastard or bitch, 🙂

i want him to have a story with Lucy just so we have a big reason for Lucy Coe to stay but my guess is that he will be wrapped in story with another character.

Well, GH no longer has a mob.
There are 2 men, Julian and Sonny that seem to be feuding and nothing more.
So, he will not be involved in an invisible mob.
He will be involved with Hayden and her father .

Harry

Why do you write such nonsense Suoo?
Sonny is still an active Kingpin and everyone knows it.

Celia
Guest
Celia

True, Harry, true. But, I think what su means is that because we do not see much ‘shooting action’, the mob is non-existent. However, Sonny continues to slither hither and yon between one crime or other.
As I also suggested above, I agree with su that there is a great chance Huxley works for/with the Berlins.

The mob still rules GH. Sonny has been threatening Julian ,Ava. Him and his moll want to have steal the kids .By hook or by crook. When people say scummy is a mumbling midget mobster ,they have the rest of the show running around with guns. They have destroyed Anna she shot Carlos in cold blood numerous times over the mobster who put a hit out on the new police commissioner.Jason has his memory back how long before he starts shooting again. We have the mob, and screwey characters like heather, Francos. we have a women who cut the baby… Read more »

Turns out a lot of people care and are happy he’s joining the show. He is supremely talented and everyone else knows it.

Why is GH creating a cheap knock off of Robert Scorpio instead of giving viewers the original? I mean SERIOUSLY this guy looks EXACTLY like Robert sitting in Luke’s apartment in 1981. He’s even got the same suit & hair. Let me guess, he’ll be the agent assigned to investigate Joss’s mystery kidneys?

Cannot wait to see Trent back on daytime! How quickly he won our hearts on ATWT & hope it happens again on GH. I would love to see him work with Maura who needs a story!

Maura has a story. She is an evil mother. Sonny and Carly said so, after all, they are the saints who love their children , and everyone elses. Maybe not joss for Carly hasn’t mentioned her in a while doesn’t seem to care where they got the kidney, much to busy trying to steal Avery .

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
