Florencia Lozano On Her Time On OLTL: "Tea was a blast to play!"

Florencia Lozano, who has been doing guest stints as Tea Delgado crosses over to General Hospital from One Life to Live, spoke with Theatremania.com about the experience of playing the spitfire legal eagle during her 15 year run in Llanview!

Lozano stated:  “Tea was a blast to play. People always ask me, ‘Was she good or was she bad?’ And I say ‘She did some questionable things because of her damaged heart.’  Who can’t relate to that? I loved how psychotically driven she was by work and by ambition and by her loyalty to the people she loved. That was really fun to play. She was complex, and we don’t get to see complex women often enough.”

When asked what is next for the popular actress, Lozano had this to say:  ” I have a lot of writing projects right now, and I’m trying to figure out how to do both the writing and the acting — especially coming off working on a soap opera, where I had a real daily structure where I could write regularly. I like structure. And as an actress, I’m excited to be able to do plays again. I want to do more Shakespeare, because that’s one of those experiences as an actor that borders on the religious, and I would also like to do more classic plays like Williams and Chekhov.”

Soapers, would you like to see Florencia still be a part of GH, when the baby-switch drama has ended?  Would you like to see Tea integrated into the canvas of Port Charles,  so the show can play out the return of Victor Jr, who was very much alive at the last episode of OLTL?  Or, do you think Tea and Victor Jr’s story should be left open-ended in fan’s minds forever? Weigh-in!

Please please please let her become a part of the GH cast. Loved her so much on OLTL and so happy when she comes to GH.

It sucks that I’m in the minority? I don’t think so. I like the discerning group that feels the same way.

I do know a lot of people that don’t like the shrieking psycho, TeaUgh I have NEEDS Delgado, though.

Put me in there too. I like FL, but when Tea starts screeching, I start tuning out. Let her come and go until they prove that her beloved Victor is alive and well and she can eat a large humble pie in front of Todd – and then they can both leave for the South Pacific forever.

I agree,I would love to see the return of Victor (and crazy Allison Perkins–maybe she could team up with nutty Heather) and also Viki Tina and Rex.Since Andrea Evans lives on the west coast,her addition to GH is a no brainer !!

LOVE TEA! LOVE FLORENCIA! Bring her over and bring back Victor already! They can dump the Christina storyline and now that Jason is going we NEED another good character back to cause havoc! Tea against Alexis and Diane?? Oh the possibilties! While they are at it….bring Viki on for a visit!

Yes, ABC take note, your silly replacements shows have all failed. The Chew you will cancel to as it is not bringing in the same numbers as AMC. Swallow your pride and give the people what we want our soaps. I don’t care, pick one of them and bring it back!!!

More Blair, more Tea and for the love of God, put Natalie and John back together ASAP!

No offense to the actress, but, no, I really don’t want to see Tea become a permanent citizen of Port Charles. There are enough GH characters to fill the canvas that needs story. The inn is full, IMO.

Florencia Lozano, is a great addition to GH,.
She and all that may come to GH, will ”belong” there is room for all talented actors..
I would like to see Florencia Lozano, become recurring, and not totally be gone .

No, after the baby switch story is wrapped up, that should be the end of Tea Delgado on GH. She doesn’t belong on GH.

I would love having her stay on GH as Tea!!! I was under the misconception that she was staying on. I love FL as a n actress and her character Tea is awesome. Very complex and lots of fun, especially with Blaire/Kassie Depaiva!

listen up soap fans. a big rumour i heard through another website is one life to live could come back in january 2013 or september of next year. it might be a 30 minute show. it depends on the chew. if the ratings fail. abc might consider bringing back one life to live. just a rumour right now. lets hope it happens.

I hope the rumour proves to be true. Can you tell us more or even proved the link to the story you saw? I would love to read it.

I LOVE FL and think she’s a better-than-fine actor, and the Tea Delgado character was a major reason IMO for OLTL being as great as it was these past few years. And seeing the character again on GH did my heart good. That said, and the sentiment is heartfelt, I don’t see a place for her in Port Charles once the baby switch storyline wraps up. And also, IMO, they leaned too heavily on Tea’s fierceness, without letting people unfamilar with the character also see the other side of her magnificent character. I can understand those who never saw her… Read more »

She screeched even more on OLTL. Tea was always a mess.

Not from my perspective. Tea was one of the best characters OLTL ever had. And FL is one of the best actresses also.

I adore Tea and FL. I wish she would be a permanent addition to Port Charles. She is an amazing actress and has chemistry with anyone. I would much rather have her on the canvas than the other newbies that are being added. I would love her to duke it out with Alexis in the courtroom. Having my two favorite characters on one show would be wonderful!

I loved having Tea/Florencia visit on GH! I’m happy to see any characters from our lost soaps. We can’t expect GH to be able to accomodate all the characters we’d like to see in the future, however. The only answer is bringing back AMC and OLTL!

I am torn. I would love to see Tea Delgado on GH to class up Peyton Place and be part of an epic Victor/Tea reunion. However, after seeing FL on stage, I have come to realize that she and Tea Delgado are to pheonomenal to be subjected to plot point writing and sacrificed by propping worthless puke worthy characters like Sam, Jason, Todd, Blair, John, Liz, and anyone else who benefitted on screen from the senseless death of Tea & Victor child, even if the child is alive. The fallout was soapy and I get it, but it was digusting… Read more »

I would like her to pop back in to wrap up the Victor story, but I honestly think she is too good an actress to stay on GH. Florencia should be a big deal movie or television star and that is what I am hoping for her.

I like Tea & FL. The Victor storyline is THE ONE OLTL storyline I would like to see resolved. Now that they have screwed the Jolie HEA I’d rather see Natalie. I’d also rather see several other OLTL characters before Tea. Vicki, Blair, David Vickers….

MBmomof3
Guest
MBmomof3

I should add I’d like to see Tea possibly as a recurring character. That has worked well IMO. I think contracts should be very few & far between because most of the current GH cast is wonderful and budgets are tight. I’m sure losing Steve Burton has freed up some $$$.

Please bring Tea to GH full time (not to mention a few Buchanans).

The character of Tea is tops – love Florencia. Love her even more with Trevor St John. The more OLTL characters that come to GH the better!!! I am so tired of the mob and mob characters.

Tea & Victor still have a huge Story that should crossover to GH but Trevor St.John needs to return as Victor Lord Jr. !

I just want Victor and Tea reunited. They had such a large fanbase and were totally stabbed in the back when the writers didn’t give them their well-deserved happy ending. Trevor and Florencia are gold together- I just want to see them on screen one last time, then ride off into the sunset so both TSJ and FL can pursue their others ventures.

Actually I would prefer Tea over Blair! (Blair and Carly are carbon copies) Tea is a strong woman, that is missing from GH. It can’t be just Anna as the strong woman. Tea is even Brighter than Alexis.

I am bored and sadden by the baby switch storyline.Clearly the writers are stuck in history. Given how they have dealt with RH as Todd.To add insult to injury, the ending tease of OLTL……giving us a live Victor…….Tea’s character has no room to.breathe or live happily, on the mob mess of GH…….i don’t know why everyone thinks that OLTL is coming back in any format…..it simply isn’t. The writing is stretched thin……they are scrambling to aloe characters who are quitting or exiting because of money, the studios greed, and they are simply trying….to hard and doing some of this blindfolded……clearly… Read more »

I really hope that Tea and Victor fans get a payoff. We need to see a reunion.

Tea deserves some kind of happiness after everything her character has been through and soon will go through when giving back the baby.

TSJ and FL are pure magic and GH would be lucky to get their chemistry on screen. The interview sounds like FL is willing to okay Tea whenever they call. That is good news!

I’d like to see her occassionally but mostly, of course, I would like to see Trevor St. John make at least a few appearances to tie up that storyline… and then they can go off into the soap sunset together. 🙂

and it would be nice to see Blair some too… Carly could use a gal pal to talk to, especially with this Johnny / Connie fiasco

Christy

OR hey, better idea, if Todd were to start to figure out about VictorJr being alive and work with John to find him — that would be a nice end to the baby fiasco and would help Tea and then she and Victor could be together and Alison Perkins could be locked up, and then hopefully Todd could go on being a rascal on GH! 🙂

sounds like a soap to me! 😀

I love Tea. I hope she stays. If they’re smart they’ll keep her. Also, GH should keep as many OLTL actors as possible. When ABC gets the rights to OLTL back in January, it will be easier to put the show back together.
Adding OLTL characters has only helped GH. I loved both shows, but GH was not nearly as good as it is now.
Let’s hope ABC will bring back OLTL.

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
