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……

NO WAY, So that’s where she has been instead of the courtroom or giving alexis advice, I like Diane and I want her back in Port Charles with a bigger role, Not doing a vampire show, good grief.

Happy for her…..Lord knows that she hasn’t been properly utilized on GH, so I am glad that HBO is putting her talents to use. Will be watching and supporting both her and Chris.

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!

Tiffany Daniels Fills-In For Briana Nicole Henry as GH’s Jordan

General Hospital viewers will notice a different Jordan Ashford in a few episodes as Tiffany Daniels temporarily replaces Briana Nicole Henry.

As previously reported and revealed by Henry herself, the actress did contract Covid-19 and during her time away from the ABC daytime drama series, she had to be replaced for some episodes.

In a post on her Instagram story this week, Henry opened up about the casting switch that actually brought her best friend to Port Charles for a bit.

I got Covid over the holidays and had to take a couple weeks off,” She went on to say, “Someone needed to fill in for me. Coincidentally, it’s my best friend! So, I am back at GH and please enjoy the beautiful Tiff D. for the next couple of episodes.”

Daniels has appeared in numerous primetime drama and comedies over her career.

So, let us know how you feel Tiffany did subbing for her friend, Briana, via the comment section below  and note that soon Henry will be back on-screen as Jordan,

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.

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.
