Please let it be Sky and Rae, Victoria Lord and Clint Buchanan, Victor Lord Jr. and his crazy captor, Joe Kelly or Laura Spencer and Scotty Baldwin…or Audrey Hardy…or…Heather Webber?

Heather Webber is already coming back. I think in April or May.

Melissa Archer is not big enough or exciting enough for this announcement! It is probably a big return of a GH actor or actress. I would be surprised if it was someone else from OLTL.

I’m thinking more actors from OLTL…….but at this point there are so many out of work…it could be just about anyone…..I’m loving GH…so I’m happy with any casting news…!!

My daughter is” friendly” with Kelly Missal, who plays Danni and she hasn’t said anything and as far as I know she’s still in New Jersey. But I do agree with you they would be a PERFECT fit in Port Charles.

That’s a loaded question. I would LOVE for Natalie and Liam to come. Would love for Nat to get in Sam’s face and Alice:) Carly too for whatever reason, Carly eyeballing Johnny boy. That would be a cat fight.

Terri

I hope it is Natalie and Liam …can”t you picture the fireworks in a scene where Natalie is protecting her man by verbally or physically going after Sonny…he wouldn’t know what hit him. If she was working at the PCPD she would drive Dante crazy. Laura would be great but I have almost given up hope of that happening. it would bew awesome to have Laura and Scotty back married to drive Luke crazy!!!Bring back Robert….Dani, Tea, Victor…

Emily

Fingers crossed. I bet it’s several ppl coming over. I hope 1 is Nat.
THis waiting is nuts. Like pins and needles. Hope they announce in the morning.

I will be watching GH on Mon. to see what all the excitement is about.. Can’t guess who it might be?????????

Terri & Michele, do u have a fav John & Nat storyline? I really enjoyed their storyline after they got back tog and Nat got preggers.

One of my favs is John catching Nat at the airport b4 she went to London.

yeah robin is already taping scenes………..

Hi Ethel: What did U mean on Saturday when U said, ” Robin is already tapping” ? I was trying to read what U were replying to but I didn’t find anything consistent with your statement. I thought Robin was leaving the show, and U spoke in the present-tense, ” Robin is already tapping”. Then there was in (media print) stating, Robin had finished taping in early March.
Please give me a heads up. Thank you!

I wish it had been Kassie DePaiva to complete the Manning family unit, but Kassie made it pretty clear on the social media this week that she hasn’t been asked back (which is complete BS by the way).

But my guess is probably Vanessa Marcil-Giovinazzo, since she met with FV while she was doing her GH set tour.

Alley

Totally agree. KDP not coming back to GH is BS of the highest order. Todd without Blair? So not watching that.

SUSAN

I THINK VANESSA MARCIL WOULD BE GREAT, THE RETURN OF BRENDA

Jack will probably end up in prison (ha, just kidding). Jack & Sam can stay in Llanview & be raised with Tea’s new baby & Addie, Dani & Tomas can help! I cannot believe we won’t find out about Tea’s baby. Nobody mentions Tea very much but I really love her!

Hey Robin…. you’re alive! 😀 RDA — that would be sweet. He was on my list of people to bring back but I’m not sure they could swing that.

My guess is Bobby Spencer or Scotty… Scotty could be on Heather’s trail or Bobby could come back to help get Barbara Jean’s heart out of jail! 😉

Perhaps, they will finally cast Valentin Cassadine with a great underused and uber popular leading actor from another soap. Valentini had stated he wanted to beef up the Cassadines. This would be breaking news, for sure.

I would love to see them put Kassie DePaiva on contract. Since Todd is going to be living in Port Charles now he needs Blair to be with him and Starr needs her Mom.

Kim

I think the whole Robin killing LET ALONE her funeral, is a HOAKS!!!! Who would take Robins body and have a convient….. BURNED UP BODY to store in her replacement? How would they get this burned up body in the hospital? And wasn’t that a LAB? Looks to me it had ‘one entrance’ and that was the entrance at the door in which Robin was speaking to Patrick, saying Good-bye. What back entrance is there to a Lab on (whatever floor) of the hospital this took place? Also, when did the people leave with Robin, because Patrick never left from in front of that door, and there is obviously ‘no back’ entrance to any lab, and how did they get Robin pass Patrick out the hospital (no back entrance) just as, how did they get a CONVIENT burnt up body into the hospital? I know its a soap, but it’s TOOOOOO far fletched for my taste…. I guess at some point “they” will ‘ fase out ‘ showing her and she will lay ‘ limbo ‘ in the kidnapped stage.
I wrote you the best insight to your request and lost it somehow, while watching tv, and still have to redo it. Let me get off before I go to, ‘ Fade to Black ‘. lol Going to play the Mega Millions now. Should I win, I’m coming to Florida, and round you up, then Debi, Heather, Ethel, David, and another guy on here and we are going to start our own soap network. Debi and I will bump heads, but hey, a little fire is always healthy! lol

I was fine with the initial clan from OLTL, but anything more would be overkill for me as a GH fan! Hoping for VMG, Rick Hearst, Jack Wagner, or maybe a Quartermaine…

david
david

Bring them all back and more. Compromising a little on importing OLTL characters might mean higher ratings for GH and ensure its survival. Complaining about OLTL characters will be the least of our problems if GH is gone. At this point, there isn’t one whole couple from Llanview in Port Charles.

Besides Jason and Sam (who seems depressed) or Dante and Lulu (when was the last time they were together?), what functioning couples are there in Port Charles (made worse by the loss of Robin)? Victor and Tea (Trevor St John and Florencia Lozano) ripping their clothes off each other would be an improvement. Almost everyone in Port Charles is either depressed, miserable, or a mental case.

barbara t
barbara t

Your naughty david ,but I have to agree with you.

Emily

A good 1 David and so true. Had a good laugh too.

Would’ve great if Alan was still alive and at Robin’s funeral. Not a dry eye in the house. Jason and Alan could’ve bonded over that too.

Agree. One of the best things about OLTL was the couples. GH is sleeping on the job in that department.

Susan M.

True!!!!!!!!

Melanie
Melanie

David, Dante and Lulu are now married. However, you wouldn’t really know that because they have been on the backburner mostly in the last few months and that makes me mad. They had the hottest love story going on only to take a backseat all the gloom and depression and mob stuff. GH seriously need to bring some romance back!!

david
david

Melanie, who would have thought marriage would have killed Dante and Lulu’s romance? They got married and disappeared like some old, boring married couple. Hopefully, brighter days are ahead for them and GH.

barbara t

So NOT wanting any more OLTL imports! I want my GH back… Laura Spencer, Barbra Jean Spencer, Lesley Webber, Scotty Baldwin, Lucky Spencer, Robert Scorpio…. needed!! (Oh and I too would take Joe Kelly!! )

Jay
Jay

I hope its Jackie Zeman, too! Bobbie needs to come back home!

gloria

REALLY!!!! Bobbie should have never LEFT! So many things have happened over recent years that were just screaming for her presence.

Dee
Dee

I would love to see Bobbie too, but hope she hasn’t had any more facial work done. Do you realize how old Joe Kelly would be? Doubt we’ll see him. I don’t want Brnda back unless they do a much better job of writing for her this time. They didn’t do her justice last time. Don’t want them to bring back any more of those dead characters, just Robin. It would be ridiculous. But clearing the mystery of Victor’s ‘murder’ would be great, so Todd will be cleared & he will be free to stay in PC.

Terri
Terri

I would like to see Victor Jr come back so it would clear Todd of his murder. They worked good together the few scenes they had they clicked! Would love to see them work together to take Sonny down. However getting rid of the Revolution and bringing back OLTL to another network would also be awesome! I would like to see all of the cancelled soaps come back on one network so that we can all enjoy our favorite soaps on one channel! I would like to see the whole cast of OLTL and AMC back in production some day soon. GH has gotten so much better under the new direction of Frank and the writers from OLTL have taken over. Thank you!

ann
ann

I’m with you Terri–bring the entire OLTL back to television, somewhere, i dont care where. If it has to be at GH get Dorian, David, VIki, Clint, Natalie, Blair for starters. But truly, truly Victor Jr along with Todd would be off the charts and boost their needed ratings. That Victor Todd story is a goldmine they need to mine.

Heather
Heather

Are you kidding me. Many GH fans have defected because of the OLTL characters. Bringing more OLTL characters will only hurt the ratings of GH even further.

GH should instead focus on bringing back its veterans such as Alan, Nurse Audrey, Robert, Laura, etc.

Lisa
Lisa

Heather, if GH fans are defecting because of OLTL actors, they are putting the final nail in the coffin of GH. If it gets cancelled, don’t blame the talent that they brought over from OLTL.

MiCHELE
MiCHELE

IT’S HASN’T HURT GH….HAVING THE OLTL PEEPS,IT’S ACTUALLY HELPED…IF YOU DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND OF HOW MANY CROSSOVER….THEN GOOD LUCK….IT WILL BE TAKEN OFF THE AIR AS ALL THE OTHERS…..WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER AND BE FOR EACH OTHER….IF THE SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT,YOU WOULD EMBRACE THE CROSSOVER…TRUST ME….WHEN YOUR STORIES ARE GONE,YOU WOULD DO ANYTHING TO SEE YOUR ACTORS FROM

YOUR FAVORITE SHOW….ANYTHING MAKES US SO HAPPY.

I hope it’s Trevor St. John to tie up his “murder” storyline. And bring Kassie DePaiva back with contract. She belongs with Todd. Loving GH!

joanna cardenti

i’m actually thinking erika slezak!! tracey mentioned on the show today that she had heard of Llanview before,, mcbain automatically said something about the accident, but my brain went to Vickie and Tracey as Debs around the same time, with vickie winning. WOW the LORDS and QUARTERMAINS, NICE!!

Susan
Susan

I would love for Erika Slezak to join the GH cast. I would definitely start watching that show again. She could look after Starr, when Todd finds his way back to Port Charles, he’s going to need Viki in the picture to help keep him centered. The role of Viki opens up many different directions for new storylines. I love her role on OLTL, she played a strong woman with morales, she had power and used it smartly. She’s a great actress. This casting news would be a dream come true!

Rebecca
Rebecca

I for one would love it to be Blair. If Todd and Starr are now part of GH Todd whould have his one true babe at his side. The three against the clan Corinthos would be a sight to watch. So I hope they’re going to announce KDP.

PLEASEEE let it be Trevor St. John ( Victor Jr.) and let Florenica Lozano follow!

I was going to say the same thing about jack going to jail,leopards dont change there spots .And I also would like to know whether tia will have a boy or girl ,I thought of that to.And I agree with you about bobbie she never should have left and never to be seen again.Isnt what david said funny?About tia and victor tearing there clothes off and the couples in port charles are boring,I agreed with him to.I think I covered all your posts.Hope we hear some news today about the cast on g h.I keep going all over the net looking for something but nothing yet.

Shirley Miller
Shirley Miller

I’m thinking it is Kassie, as Blair, returning to stay with Starr and Todd on GH. If not Kassie, maybe it is Lucky coming back to spend some time with Elizabeth and the children. Or it could be Vicki Lord from OLTL coming to make a visit to Port Charles and visit some of her friends. Or how about Melissa Archer as Natalie coming to give her boyfriend, John, a big hug and bringing their son to Port Charles so he can see his Dad. I gotta be right on one of the above – LOL!!!!! Can’t wait to find out – hope we hear on Monday!!!!!

Ellen
Ellen

Viki and Clint would be the perfect buyers of the Port Charles Herald and then thy could be Diane’s bosses! Although a Kassie DePaiva long term contract would be phenomenal! I kinda like Carly having a girlfriend who gets what her life is! The same goes for Blair!

Dawn B.
Dawn B.

Yes, Terri, I forgot all about that OLTL ending. Like I said, ALL of the OLTL cast members, including Trevor St. John, joining GH. If/when Victor is found to be alive (and that would mean that the woman holding him hostage (he sure doesn’t have luck in that department, does he), Allison Perkins, either lets him go, is captured, or he escapes.

Please let it be more veteran GH characters! Genie Francis’ talent has been wasted over at Y & R so bring her home to GH. Other possible candidates…Kin Shriner, Vanessa Marcil, Rick Hearst, Lynn Herring, Richard Dean Anderson, Jon Lindstrom or perhaps Jack Wagner. Maybe even Natalia Livingston or Tyler Christopher. Can’t wait for the announcement!

Tina Gray

As much as I am devastated about my One Life to Live, I’m afraid my fellow GH fans will go beserk if someone else from OLTL joins the cast and we lose another GH actor. So torn. Damn you, Disney!!!!!

Heather
Heather

You got a point. They are already 4 OLTL actors. THAT’S MORE THAN ENOUGH.

The more OLTL actors they are bringing to Port Charles, the more GH fans will defect. General Hospital needs to bring back veterans actors such as Alan, Frisco, Laura, Robert, AJ, Nurse Audrey, Felicia, Benda and Holly.

GH doesn’t need OLTL actors. They are driving viewers away.

Petra
Petra

if GH fans stop watching the show, simply because of former OLTL cast joining, then they are not real fans

barbara t
barbara t

Petra,I agree with you,I am a gh fan and a oltl fan and when you say they are not real fans ,you have a point for many years I stuck with the boring every day mob stories and I stayed with the general hospital bored or not I may have fell asleep a few times but gh was always on ,Soaps put on new characters all the time,If the mannings dont work out they will be written out .All the mannings are is another family that is moving to port charles,And john mcbain is a cop He is in landview to arrest todd,so what.They didnt take up any extra time and the fans who are saying that if general hospital gets canceled It will be because of the 4 oltl stars there wrong ,It wont be because of starr, blair, todd and john ,the real reason will be the way the writing that has been done over the many years with mob story after another mob story and the continuing story of sonny and jason there always is a mob connection and the franco story,I am not even going to go there,hopefully thats over with.So if the fans are leaving ,because of 4 people from One life to live ,that makes no sense ,Because they are not taking over the comings and goings of port charles These fans are leaving because they are choosing to do so,General hospital is interesting again and I like it .Everyone should stop complaining and support the 4 soaps that we have left in the daytime once there gone ,there gone .

Susan M.
Susan M.

I disagree with comment on 3/25 at 7:43pm.. I watched GH since Dr. Hardy, Luiclle, Audry,Luke& Laura…..I see nothing wrong with OLTL crossing over on to GH…At least some of them…………….Makes me happy to see them……….

Tina Gray
Tina Gray

If GH gets canceled, it won’t be because of the fans or the OLTL actors or the storylines or anything like that. It’ll be because of the pieces of garbage at ABC/Disney further decimating our soaps and their daytime lineup. They still don’t get it………….. But. I digress. I am soooooo happy to see Michael Easton. My heart is breaking for “Starr”. I’m wondering how they’re gonna bring Roger Howarth on if they think that he murdered Victor. Unless Bo and his people are going to find Victor they’ll mention it when “Todd” comes to Port Charles. That will break my heart because I want to see it all play out. I will always watch and have always watched GH, no matter how trying the storylines got, because I always want to support the actors and my beloved daytime genre. We should all do the same!

Lucy Coe (sp)…or maybe Bobbie? Just bring them back and be careful of bringing on the OLTL characters…do it slowly and make it make sense. I love some of them, but it has to make sense in the writing, otherwise you lose audience and the show will go the way of others in the past few years. Slow and easy and good creative writing is the key. If it ain’t on the page…it ain’t on the stage! Take it easy and don’t kill this one. Now we only have 4 SOAPS TO LIVE… I MEAN LOVE!!

Breaking News

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  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 as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

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..

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.

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.
