For all of us who have been waiting for acting spitfire Kelly Sullivan to re-appear on our daytime screens, it’s finally happened! And for those of you who have been hoping that it would be Y&R that would be a fit for Kelly’s talents, your wish has come true.

The former General Hospital favorite and Daytime Emmy nominee, where she played  Kate Howard/Connie Falconeri is said to have been cast in a recurring role (for now) on the CBS sudser named “Sage”!

According to Soap Opera Digest the character is: “Intelligent, competent, discreet, and reserved. However, that reserve masks a well of passion and fire beneath the surface. She’ll do anything for those she loves.” Kelly revealed on her great casting news: “I’m incredibly honored and flattered to even be considered to be part of the ‘Young and the Restless’ family.  I’m also thrilled to be working with (Executive Producer) Jill Farren Phelps again like we did on GH.”

Sullivan begins taping on September 24 and look for her to first appear on-screen on the October 28h episode of Y&R!

So, what do you think about the role Kelly will be playing in Genoa City? Glad to know she will be back on the soaps?  Share your thoughts below!

I should have a score card to keep track of the GH/Y&R casting war!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

I was hoping to see her on Days as another Dimera…Stephano and Lee Dumonde’s unknown daughter whom i’ll name Tracy…Tracy and nuChad couldve been Salems new Kristen and E.J.!!!

Shucks !

dang !

double Shucks

I’m incredibly ecstatic to see her BACK

just lamed : why didn’t DAYS see fit to hire her…

talk about charismatic… has it all in spades…

at this point… I don’t see who she could pair up with

I could have seen her with almost any one at DAYS

She is so going to be a recast for Kelly.

Ugh

Scorecard you say?

Billy Miller, Michelle Stafford, Maura West, Emme Marcy Rylan (sp?) – 4 for GH

Kelly Sullivan – 1 for YR

I think GH beats YR.
Now if you’re talking about ABC vs. CBS, that is more difficult.

Wait a minute. I completely forget Steve Burton. 2 for YR.

Also the scorecard is based on the past 2 years or so.

The thing is that there are only 4 remaining soaps, so the ones with the extra income and higher ratings in the 18-49 demo, are signing vets left and right and trying to lure more ratings..I must give credit to B&B, they are no overcasting and there ratings are fairly solid…It is not a casting war between GH and Y&R, its just 4 soap, and lots of actors in need of work.

This is FANTASTIC news! Kelly Sullivan is a pro at what she does, and her talents were wasted once Ron came on board with General Hospital. The character of Kate could’ve been so much more than a cornered character with DID. Hopefully the writers at The Young and the Restless can write for her, which I know they can!

I also saw Kelly as a potential replacement for Michelle Stafford’s Phyllis, so this is great! I need her to debut now! I’m ready to be WOW’ed!

I like Kelly Sullivan ..
she was great as Kate/Connie on GH ..
However– I do not feel she can save Y&R from its’ bad everything, but it will help!..
Looking forward to seeing her, again

Hi..
I don’t know who hired her, but-
Kelly/connie was Created by Robert Guza, Jr.
And Introduced by Jill Farren Phelps

I like Connie too bad she died..
soap actors always say;
they never when it will be their turn to get killed off, that’s soap business! lol

joanna
joanna

it was definitely ass kissing all the way around. JFP has been trying to get her on board at Y&R for awhile. She’s a good actress but I’ve heard she’s a trainwreck as a person. I prefer to see people who who are likable on screen and off screen. She seems to just be using this as a way of pedaling her business venture anyway, which is a bit off putting.

Hmmmm who will they pair her with?? Maybe she’s been taking care of Adam(Justin Hartley)?? Nick, Stitch, Jack and Billy’s dancecards are full. Maybe they will pair her with Dylan and get a Dylan/Avery/Joe/Sage quad going. I’m excited to see Avery’s ex husband reappear. I just hope the writing is good and they don’t waste her talent!! She was insanely phenomenal as Connie/Kate on GH!!!!! I could see her being a good rival for Phyllis too!!! Just keep her away from Nick and keep him with Sharon!!!!

CeeCee

I thought she would have been cast as Stitch’s ex. That seemed logical to me. Oh, well. I am glad she’s back on my screen. Not only is she beautiful, but also talented.
I’m not quite sure who Sage is?

Maura West went to GH one-year after her firing from Y&R; but fans shouldn’t be playing into a *potential* war. And Y&R had Tristan years prior

Tristan likes to bounce back and forth from Y&R to GH and back again..
I feel we will see Tristan back on GH when his contract is up..
GH got the better of the exchanges with; Billy and Michele ..

(I think someday GH will have MM, also 🙂

Jimmy

When you put it like that, no, not really. Not that SB, TR and KS aren’t great actors – they are. But BM, MS and ER were fantastic on Y&R and they are sorely missed. Whereas, if SB left Y&R, I wouldn’t care too much because he hasn’t made the powerhouse impression BM and MS did.

Damn I forgot Tristan. So it’s 4-3 in GH favor.

harry

Tristan is worth about a thousand of Michelle’s, and if you’re going to apply this stupid scorecard business to the two soaps you need to factor in the writing.
In that case, Y&R wins.

aria

Y&R can have emme rylan back, i prefer the original actress, julie marie Berman, not that emme is bad, if she was playing another character i would like here, i just don’t think she makes a good Lulu. YR can keep Steve Burton, i do think Billy Miller will make a great Jason. wish we could have Tristan back and Kelly Sullivan on of GH biggest mistake in firing, how insulting to fire an actress for doing a great job, leave a bad taste with me for RC and FV. I’ve never seen Michele Stafford on YR before, and some don’t seem to like her on GH but i’m enjoying the crap out of her, i’m not a fan of the storyline, 20year in a coma is beyond stretching it, but love her with Rosalynn, they are a hoot, and her over the top acting is ok by me considering what they have her playing. to me she’s a keeper. lastly i’m not sure i’m really enjoying all the swapping these two shows have going on, looks fun all the tit and tat but its going overboard, pretty soon the shows will have to swap names if they keep this up.

Killing off Connie was one if the most pointless plots ever under RC / FV. Regime , the storyline was pointless and letting go of such talent was just plain stupid , actress as talented as Kelly Sullivan don’t grow on trees so I find it hard to believe they let her go.

Patrick

well said

her letting go : fired

was the biggest blunder under RC/FV regime

this just smarts… I so wanted her on DAYS

I wish I had the time to watch Y&R…. I’ll be recording only fridays eps
so I can catch my 2 favorite gals…. and that’s Eileen Davidson and Kelly Sullivan

this is powerhouse….. beware : on guard : tumultuous : savor : ideal

along with Maura West on GH

just so much to admire

Absolutely right. What was the point of Connie’s demise? Oh, I know…because all roads lead to Rome……that is, revolting Sonny and wart-full Carly reruns .
Y&R scored big when it cast Kelly S. The soap is getting back on track, I see.

Agree…this character had alot of mileage left, and the PTB screw up big time..GH lost is Y&R gain, I hope she wins the fans over and becomes a contract player..i will begin to tune in to Y&R after a 2month boycott.

There are a few options open for Sage. She could be a lawyer hired by Michael and Avery as they venture forth with their new partnership in a law firm. She could be Kelly’s and Stitch’s long, lost sibling….or she could be Austin’s mother? Phyllis’ nurse? So many possibilities.

Great news. GH was so foolish to let her go. I loved Megan Ward’s Kate but was won over by Kelly Sullivan’s charisma and acting prowess. She’s really very good.
Give her a decent storyline, please! And maybe pair her up with Steve Burton because while she’s a sweetheart, Avery is as dull as dishwater. I’d like to see Burton paired up with someone who can jolt him out of his somnolent state.

With more than usual dull, lifeless characters on Y&R, a pod people storyline could bring “life” to the show…I always liked “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.” We can keep score cards for who we think came from pods! What do you think?

Love KS, however, aren’t there enough blondes on the show. We really need some new men for all these girls instead of the same old switching back and forth. Give us another Dylan or Ben.

The only way y n r needs another character is if she s a foil for the boring cane / lily marriage! Maybe she s an old flame of cane s and has some dirt on him. Cane is much more intresting when he s keeping secrets from lily! lily can than run to tyler which needs to be resurrected! lily and tyler had so much chemistry! i miss tyler on our screens!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Huh? So, how does that make Kelly a foil to a marriage, no less? One cannot be a foil to an abstract. One is a foils to a character…to boost the main protagonist’s qualities….AND, usually of the same gender, not the opposite sex….
Tyler needs to stay exactly where he is, albeit I agree that both Cane and Lily are a snore.

Again, write for the characters you have. Tired of soaps creating new ones when there are perfectly good characters already on the canvas.

Mixed feelings– love the actress, just not sure if Y&R really needs another new character at this point in time. But willing to see who Sage is and how she fits into the canvas and whose orbit she will be connected to. Last week on a different post I did state it was Y&R turn to snag a former GH cast member– and they did. Now it is GH’s turn — my guess the actress who played Chloe will turn up on GH sometime soon— anyone else agree?

jimdavis289@yahoo.com
jimdavis289@yahoo.com

It most likely will happen sooner or later…im suprised Brandon Barash didnt show up at Y as the nuAdam…but there are only 4 soaps left so if an ex soap star doesnt make it to primetime or movies, and need an acting job, where else are they going to go but another soap…these things are getting to be more interesting than the shows we watch…lol

There you go, there you go! Y&R got one of GH’s finest actress’s. She is so freakin good! For those of you who are not familiar with her she will blow your socks off! She will bypass recurring! She would have been a great Kelly. Her and Peter would have been gold! She may be part of the new Jabot perfume story? I would like her to be a former flame of Dylan since Joe Clark is coming to town.

She’s not needed, especially knowing she’s a FOJ. I hate that Phelps keeps bringing people on.

She may be a fine actress. I know nothing about her, so that’s a plus for me. Willing to give her a shot, but never at the expense of YR characters that currently aren’t being written for.

She is needed for all the GH lovers that dabble in Y&R. As you can see, it’s all about GH.

The only GH actors who’ve been lucky enough to sign with the #1 soap on the air are those who’ve worked there with Phelps. None others are there.

And GH fans who also watch YR do so to escape the crazy that GH can be sometimes.

Out of work Days actors are salivating about trying to get their foot in the door at YR!

k/kay
k/kay

I would have used her as a recast for McKenzie and have her team up with Jill & Cane to take back Chancellor from Victor Newman. That would definitely be a storyline worth telling. I happen to like the character of Cane and he has been on the back burner long enough and you will never convince me that Katherine would leave her business to Victor or all her money to sniveling Devon who she knew two years . She adored Brock and Mac the writers dropped the ball on this one.

Nicole

She is a great actress. I am happy that she is on Y&R. I would love to see a scene between her and GT.

Ricky

This is AMAZING news all around! I actually let out a loud “YES” when I read the headline.

It’s quite clear to me that she will be involved with Adam, for their first tape dates line up perfectly. I would be surprised if she’s not mixed with up with Adam when he returns…only thing we can do is wait and see.

Makes sense. She is a powerhouse. Her and Michael Muhney would have been great together. We’ll see if her and Justin can connect.

B.J.

I agree Fanny. 🙂 I thought Kelly was superb on GH, and I will definitely have to tune back in to Y&R, to see if they give her a role worth watching every day.

Wishful thinking I know, but I hope the writing will improve to help all of the actors still there too.

Jimmy
Jimmy

Why did GH even kill Connie off? It was extremely needless and because of that decision, GH lost one of its best actresses. Kelly Sullivan really took the character of Kate/Connie and flew with it, it was great watching her every day. Her death hasn’t changed anything except it gives Olivia something to preach about and Sonny now has leverage on Ava. In fact, it contributed to the death of another great character, A.J. And, moreover, Ava still hasn’t payed for what she did and it’s been a year now! So why did it have to happen?

Regardless, I’m sure Kelly will do great on Y&R, but they better have good material for her, and they should offer her a contract sooner rather than later, otherwise they might lose her like they lost Emme Rylan when she came back.

Timmm
Timmm

THAT is when I had seconds thoughts about the Cartini regimen. Kate/Connie should have won an Emmy for her fantastic work and then GH kills her off?

Elite Advisors
Elite Advisors

Maybe that would be a good thing losing her back to GH…. GH has Robin bring her back from death….with AJ of course played by Michael Muhney… Connie / Kate was so great with Sonny…they had a special something that he has not has since the old days of Brenda. They had a special magic. Really cant stand Olivia at all. She needs to go off into the sunset with someone somewhere! I fast forward through her every scene… hope Ned is not stuck with her.

aria
aria

just thinking about it makes me mad, GH had their own powerhouse actress, they discover her, she wasn’t some big name from another soap, and what do they do? they get rid of her for being great! hmmm maybe someone should get rid of RC for being “great” how bout that ?

She is a rare talent, and certainly be part of daytime. See you soon Kelly!

With only 4 daytime soaps left, seeing actors show up on different shows doesn’t surprise me at all. To me it’s not so much a “casting war” as limited opportunities and shows capitalizing on established daytime actors. Soaps have always been a roating door. Just my perspective. As for Kelly, I enjoyed her on GH. I was hoping she would show up on Days as a recast of a character we haven’t seen in a long time– or a character deeply connected. YR already has a lot of talent on the canvas but I’d rather see Kelly on the show than no where, or better yet I’d rather see her on the show than less deserving actors.

With only the 4 soaps left there are many out of work soap actors..

the majority have spoken

#1 she’s a powerhouse of an actress

#2 biggest mistake of GH current regime…. firing her

#3 Y&R biggest gain yet…. after Eileen Davidson, of course

#4 SHE”S Back…. giddy time

i would like to agree with a poster who said… she’d be great… with the nuAdam… what a powerhouse coupling this could

I also loved how one stated… she could be of the charts with Cain… to enliven up the dull Neil Winters clan

I first thought… hummm… what about a Neil pairing… then I read about Cain… then… gobsmacked about an Adam pairing

all off the charts neilsen…. Kelly Sullivan… welcome home

Bonnoe

Why can’t someone, anyone, scoop up Kristen Alderson (Kiki), of course who would do that to their show or their regime? I have to fast forward every scene she is in. Looking forward to Billy Miller as Jason Morgan. I hope he comes back a Quartermaine!

Well, I said current ones, as well as established ones, i.e. the veterans.
For example, Barton. He has been onscreen for all of 15 minutes it feels
like, since his first appearance. New characters come aboard only to
be soon backburnered…then another new character comes…and so
on and so on…
I would like to see more s/l involving Noah and Courtney, for just one
example. Courtney was brought on, then nothing much happened with
her afterward.
Too many cooks in the kitchen spoils the meal.

CeeCee

I agree k/Kay. It always puzzled me why the Duchess would leave the company to Victor and her billions to Devon. Unless, of course, it was done to ease her guilt in giving up her son. You certainly came up with the perfect descriptive word for him…sniveling. This guy has no charisma, no drive, no personality. I do not see him as a businessman…a man, period.
I wish they would bring Mac back. I loved that character. And, Brock!!! Loved him too. Such a positive aura about the character. Who knows, maybe there will be some clause in the will that was overlooked or something, where the money is really Mac’s . Things like that happen on soaps , anyway. That would be a good reason for Mac to reappear. Indeed, it may, possibly, also help boost the soap’s rating.

General Hospital

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Courtesy/ABC

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Share your thoughts on the performances of Kathleen and Michelle and what stood out to you via the comment section below.

Exciting casting news for mutli-Daytime Emmy winner, Billy Miller (Drew, General Hospital).  Miller has been cast in the upcoming drama series thriller, Are you Sleeping to be on Apple’s streaming platform.

Are you Sleeping stars Oscar winner Octavia Spencer along with Lizzy Caplan, and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) with another Oscar winner, Reese Witherspoon serving as one of the series executive producers with the project through her production company, Hello Sunshine.

According to Deadline: Are You Sleeping, is based on the true-crime novel by Kathleen Barber,and provides a unique glimpse into America’s obsession with true-crime podcasts and challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage.

Code Black’s Moon Bloodgood is also set as a series regular. Brett Cullen (Devious Maids) and Hunter Doohan, will recur along with Miller.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.
