When True Blood premieres for its fifth season on June 10th on HBO, there will be lots of new faces! And one of them is our very own, Carolyn Hennesy!

That’s right! The On-Air On-Soaps Podcast co-host, General Hospital star, Tween novelist extraordinaire, and Barb of Cougar Town, has a fantastic role in the new season as Rosalyn Harris of The Vampire Authority! And somehow Carolyn’s juicy role got even juicier, when it was revealed that her character  is connected to the show’s newest  hunk, former Law & Order SVU star, Christopher Meloni, who plays Roman in the hit vampire saga!

First look images of Carolyn and Christopher along with all the other new True Blood season 5 cast additions were previewed over the weekend by Zap2it.com!

Hennesy previewed how she and Meloni are intertwined on True Blood in the new season in a recent interview with lenalamoray.com   “She was made an Authority Council Member by the Guardian, Chris Meloni’s character (Roman).  This happened centuries ago so what their relationship was like, we don’t know yet.  If the Authority has been around 2000 years then she has been a member for 1900 years.  As long as the Authority has been around she’s pretty much been a part of it.  All of my other Authority members as it stands now like Christopher Heyerdahl (as Dieter Braun), Peter Mensah (as Kibwe), and Chris Meloni.  There are some huge, huge political battles being fought in the vampire world this season.  There are a lot of heavy duty and very important council meetings.”

Are you looking forward to seeing Carolyn and Christopher on True Blood? Let us know!

ABSOLUTELY! Carolyn has always been a favorite on GH and cannot wait to see her in action on True Blood. And Chris Meloni…he is just PURE gold.

I don’t want to see Carolyn or Christopher in any thing but in their original roles, especially Christopher back in Law& Order where he really belongs, He is really missed. I can’t picture Carolyn in vampire land,either. Ah, show biz……

I am sooooo happy for Carolyn! She is a very talented lady whose gifts weren’t being used on GH. I miss her sassy lines, and gorgeous self on GH, but as a True Blood fan, I seriously can’t wait for her appearance! As in everything she takes on, Carlolyn will be a brilliant vamp! This is a role she can really sink her teeth into. (pun intended!) Rock on Carolyn!

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.

GH’s Kelly Thiebaud Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

In heartbreaking scenes on last week’s episodes of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) gets the news she has feared for quite some time – that her battle with Huntington’s disease has progressed even further than she imagined.

The moments were all played with devastating perfection by Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, who has GH fans know will be departing the ABC daytime drama series soon.

In story, Austin (Roger Howarth) set up a consultation with a Huntington’s Disease expert, Dr. Talone. When the three meet to discuss Britt’s case, she learns that symptoms she thought were stress from being on the run a few years ago, and when she was in prison, were the early manifestations of the disease.

After Dr. Talone examines Britt, she reveals that Britt now has the signs of stage three Huntington’s.  As for her prognosis, Britt will have ‘significant cognitive impairment’, and while she was anywhere between five to fifteen years in her lifespan, it could be as soon as eighteen months when Britt will need assisted living and full-time care.

When Dr. Talone exits, Austin offers to stay with Britt, but she asks for him to leave her office so she can be alone.  Once by herself and overcome with the news she received (and looking at her framed medical license and business card which says that Britt is Co-Chief of Staff of General Hospital), she finally loses it and tears up her office.  Cody (Josh Kelly) comes upon her, when she is left holding the necklace she found in Peter’s possessions which are the diamonds of the Ice Princess.

Britt is in tears and tells Cody that when she found out her father, Faison had died, she thought it was finally over. However, his reach extends far beyond the grave! Britt is in disbelief that she wasted so much time seeking his approval.  Cody tries to calm Britt down by telling her she is worth loving.  Britt remarks, “Even with what’s been passed down to me?”  Cody is confused and thinks she is talking about the necklace which now makes Britt believe that Cody was only into her for the diamonds.

Later, in the most gut-wrenching and emotional scenes, Britt confesses to her mother, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) that her disease has progressed. Obrecht wants to get her to a specialist in Toronto, but Britt says she just met with her and she informs her mother she has five to fifteen years to live – and a year and a half before she may require full-time care.  Obrecht promises they will fight this. An overcome Britt asks her to just stop because she doesn’t need a doctor … she needs a mom.  The two embrace, but Obrecht cries Britt deserved a better mother than her. Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud were extremely touching and effective in these scenes.

When looking at the totality of the arc of this story that played out last week, and the understated and beautiful work of Kelly Thiebaud, it is without question Michael Fairman TV gives our Power Performance of the Week honors to Kelly.

So, what did you think of Kelly’s performances as Britt learns what she will now be faced with in the years ahead and the aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
