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!

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

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
Guest

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
Guest

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 ..

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.

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.

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.

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
Guest

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.

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?

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
Guest
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.

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?

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!

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!

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.

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

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… Read more »

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

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.

Guest

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 ?

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… Read more »

on and so on…

Briana Nicole Henry on Her Decision to Exit GH: “I Decided It Was Time to Move On”

On Monday’s episode, GH viewers learned that Jordan will need to start dialysis and treatment at a specialty clinic in Albany from kidney damage and suffering renal failure.  But on Tuesday, fans of the ABC daytime drama series learned that Briana Nicole Henry has left the show, all her decision, according to her post on Instagram.

A Daytime Emmy nominee this year in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category, Briana shared the news on her departure expressing: “I suppose it is that time isn’t it. As I celebrated my third year of being on General Hospital yesterday, I also watched my last episode as Jordan Ashford air. People kept asking me how it felt to have ended my time on the show, and it wasn’t until yesterday that it really sank in, as I watched Jordan’s goodbye to her family and knew the tears you saw were real tears between not just colleagues but friends. I decided it was time for me to move on from @generalhospitalabc and I got nothing but love and support from everyone involved. Not to mention was given the most beautiful send of that left me quite literally shaken.  I’d like to take a second to thank every single person in my @generalhospitalabc family that helped me make GH my home over the last three years, especially @fvalentinigh . From the crew, to my cast mates to our security guard Emma, there were multiple people on any given day that brought such a smile and warmth to my heart.”

Briana finished her post with, “When I started GH it was my first opportunity as a series regular, and to get the opportunity to throw myself into Jordan for the last three years and work with some truly incredible actors has been an honor. Thanks for holding space for me to grow. I am a better actor because of the time I spent within those walls and will forever be grateful for the way the show nurtured and challenged my ability.  To the fans, it took me a while to win you over, but once you saw my heart you made me feel so much love. I hope I brought something unique and honest to your beloved character of Jordan Ashford, she’s one helluva woman. Until next time loves 👋🏾.”

This will be the second Jordan to exit General Hospital.  The role was originated by Vinessa Antoine, and Henry took it over for the last three years.

So, sad to see Briana leave GH? Should the show recast? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Jason asks Carly to Marry Him and She Responds “With All My Heart”

The stage is set now for General Hospital’s Jason/Carly/Sonny/Nina story to explode as things heated up between longtime friends and former lovers, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) just as Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is in Nixon Falls pleading with Nina (Cynthia Watros) to come clean and tell “Mike”(Maurice Benard) that he is indeed, Sonny Corinthos.  Here’s what went down on Friday’s episode …

Back in Port Charles, at the demolished former “Jake’s”, Carly and Jason’s old stomping grounds, Carly and Jason share a kiss. Carly says she can’t believe this is happening after letting him know that all of her old romantic feelings for him are starting to come back. Apparently that is true for Jason too, as the ABC daytime drama series finally reaches back into the history of these two characters who were in love, before Carly slept with Sonny.  Back in the present day, Jason asks Carly to marry him, and she responds, “With all my heart.” But now, Carly is starting to feel more excited about what started off as a business arrangement between the two of them to retain the Corinthos family hold over the five families and the territory in Sonny’s absence.  Carly says she wants their wedding day to be about them, and later they can come to Jake’s just by themselves.

In Nixon Falls, Jax (Ingo Rademacher) is trying to get through to Nina, who has admitted her duplicity to him and how she has fallen in love with “Mike”.  When Jax informs her that Carly and Jason are getting married, she thinks that’s great then she and “Mike” can have a future together.  Nina wants Jax to just forget this conversation, and seeing Sonny, and do this for her; after all she went through in losing her child, Nelle, and her relationship with him. Then Jax asks her to think about Donna and Avery and Wiley, his children and grandchild, who don’t know he is alive and will never get to know him. Nina cries that Jax has won, and that she will tell “Mike” the truth in private (but something tells us, she is going to make “Mike” walk-in on Jason and Carly’s nuptials, so that she has a shot of keeping him all to herself by the betrayal he will witness).  Jax says he is not leaving Nixon Falls till she tells Sonny the truth, but she somehow she still got him to leave through her pleading to let her do this alone.  As Nina thinks “Mike” is walking in the front door of the Tan-O, in walks Peter (Wes Ramsey)!

Meanwhile, Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is rushed to General Hospital unconscious with Portia (Brook Kerr) not far behind, after being trapped together.  More bad news is revealed when Austin (Roger Howarth) gets the blood results back for Jordan and tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) that Jordan’s levels of carbon monoxide are 58% which is not good for someone with one kidney.  Austin relates that if Jordan’s kidney function doesn’t improve, they’ll have put her on dialysis.  TJ (Tajh Bellow) comes to see his mom, and sits by her bedside in tears.  Later, Curtis breaks down in tears holding Jordan’s hand to come back to him, and she opens her eyes, as Portia walks in on the scene.

Three of the five families plan to take over Port Charles and split the territory after their secret meeting, where they plan to blow up a warehouse while Carly and Jason are distracted and at their wedding; the families also received a message from Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober) while in prison.  Who will stop the “hit”?

Charles Shaughnessy Takes Over the Role of GH’s Victor Cassadine

GH fans were in for a major surprise when on Thursday’s episode a kidnapped Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) got the shock of her life when her former lover, Victor Cassadine turned out to be alive and well and holding her hostage.

But there was another twist! DAYS favorite, Charles Shaughnessy (Shane), who previously was announced as coming to GH but in a mystery role, revealed himself to be … the new Victor Cassadine!  The former Mr. Sheffield of The Nanny has stepped into the role previously played by DAYS Thaao Penghlis (Tony).

Once the cat was out of the bag, in a tweet, Shaughnessy shared: “So excited to FINALLY be able to reveal details of my latest “gig”. 37 years on, I am back in the halls of @GeneralHospital, playing with the incredible @gatitweets. Having once been a vampire on @DisneyChannel, it’s not surprising I bring #VictorCassadine back from the dead!”

Shaughnessy is referring to the time he previously played Holly Sutton’s cousin, Alistair on the ABC daytime drama series back in 1984.

General Hospital viewers recall that Liesl shot and “killed” Victor back in 2014 then played by Penghlis.  In story, Victor believed he was the bio-dad of her son, Nathan West (Ryan Paevey). But a DNA test said that was not true, yet she shot him.  Leaving viewers wondering who is the dad? Hmmm.

So what did you think of the shocker? Shaughnessy as NuVictor Cassadine? Comment below.
