It’s another example of there being life after daytime even if we don’t like to see the stars leave our shows. I am happy for him and hope he gets even more success with this ltaest project.

I adore this young actor; he had so much spark and humor as Ethan — qualities which we could use more of. Not to mention that smile, that accent, that hair…he has STAR written all over him. Whatever he initially lacked in dramatic skill, he made up for with charisma and sincerity. And by the time he left, I knew I’d miss him. I was right.

Wanna talk about a major crush, Soaphound? Nathan Parsons would be my “type.” Long hair, accent, funky/artsy…

So, rebecca1, Parsons is your type. “Hmmm…,” says Jamesj75, as he decides to grow his blond/grey hair out. 🙂

Hahah, Jamesj75; blond/grey will do just fine! Now can you “speak” Aussie? 😉 Or, at least type to me with an accent? 😉

Hello Soaphoud!

“Spark,” “humor,” “charisma,” and “sincerity” go a long way. We indeed “could use more of” them!

Never saw or even heard of Roswell but I’ll check out anything Nathan Parsons is in. Loved him in GH, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals! And, I like quite a few of CW’s shows so I’ll give it a shot.

So happy to have Parsons back on TV!

Hi Kevin

Used to LOVE Once Upon A Time but somehow I missed too many episodes and never caught up. If it’s free on OnDemand I might at some point though I hear that many of the original cast left? Particularly Emma? Nothing stays the same!!!! ;(

Glad Parsons is keeping busy! He’s one GH actor that definitely got a lot of work after only a brief time on the soap.

kevin and rebecca1…Don’t remember seeing Nathan in the shows mentioned. And while he was an okay Ethan, i didn’t like the idea of him being Luke and Holly son. More Luke baggage, and I thought Holly could do better. But hoping Nathan does well in Roswell. If good writing, good potential.

Just another comment…I really liked the first few seasons of Vampire Diaries when it was mainly Elena, Damon and Stefan, and Once Upon A Times with Emma, Regina and Henry. But for me, at least, they seemed to have strayed a lot in their storytelling. But we know how hard it is to sustain good stories…there are comments all the time on MF about this.

Rose…

Correction: I meant True Blood (not Vampire Diaries!) He played Bill’s vampire daughter Jessica’s boyfriend but then became a friend/lover to Lafayette. (Oh my G-d! I was so shocked/sorry to hear of the real life passing of Nelsan Ellis the actor who played Lafayette! Loved him in True Blood…loss of a great talent and from what was written good person. He was hilarious in True Blood…absolutely fantastic!)

In The Originals he played the werewolf husband to Hayley.

Yeah; Vampire Diaries steered way off course but I watched it to the end and was sad to see it go. The Originals is coming up on its last season. What a shame; the show is still going strong (not sure if it is a ratings thing or if the two main leads want to leave).

rebecca1…I watched Roswell. Even had Genie and hubby Jonathan (StarTrek Next Generations) as guests. It had potential, especially for us “believers” in the Roswell UFO landings. And am adjacent to Wright Patterson Airforce Base in Dayton Ohio that is said to secretly house the remains of an alien from Roswell, etc. Somehow the show just didn’t click. Hope it does better this time.

didn’t know any of that, rose. thanks! interesting…but Nathan’s is a favorite of mine so I’ll definitely be tuning in, or at least checking it out.

Hi rebecca1!
Nathan is a favorite of mine too! I absolutely loved him on the Originals, too. 🙂

Hi Abuzzfan!

Nice to have you back! 😉

If you never watched True Blood, see if you can get it OnDemand (or if you have any other service that has it) OR see if your library has it. Fantastic show!

Perhaps it will be disclosed that Parsons’ Roswell character is the son of Casey from Lumina/Port Charles, NY…

Nicolas Bechtel Returns To General Hospital

General Hospital fans were greeted with good news this week with the reveal that scene-stealer Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer Cassadine) is back taping new episodes of the ABC sudser as of last week.

This means look for Spencer Cassadine to become part of his grandmother Laura’s (Genie Francis) story, and perhaps the switcheroo that the man posing as Kevin is actually his evil twin, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom)!

Seems like the oh-so-bright Spencer just might either be headed for trouble, or will be smart enough to figure out what is going down … but we will shall see!

The last time Bechtel appeared on GH was back in in August of 2017.  The character of Nikolas was the facilitator in the last time Genie Francis exited the show under much fan uproar.  Laura was written-off in story to tend to Spencer in Europe when the youngster broke his legs.

Yesterday, Nicolas posted a cute pic with his co-stars Genie Francis and Jon Linstrom and stating: “Never a dull moment around here. Selfies  

So, excited to hear Spencer C will be on the Port Charles scene soon? Comment below.
