Well, that is nasty;

No kidding. Why didn’t they include ME, KA and RH. I mean come on…they all were on GH were one full year before all the PP/ABC/Disney got all complicated. Can’t believe that they weren’t apart of the 50th anniversary photo shoot even though they were asked to leave back in February. Go figure!!

Probably because Roger Howarth is in Connecticut shooting One Life To Live.


The 3 are still with GH with contracts..
It was nasty not to include Todd, John and Starr ..

BOOOO BOOOOO/throw tomato !

Because they are not part of GH’s 50th history – they have only been on GH for a short period of time and have no reason to be included. Stop acting like a two year old because you can’t have your own way. How pathetic.

They are a part of OLTL and that is how it will remain – get over it

Can you believe these idiots expecting Todd, Starr and McBain to be in the pivotal cast photo? These 3 actor’s and character’s had nothing to do with the ratings bonanza of General Hospital over the years. I can’t believe the nerve of some people.

Those character’s are the face of OneLife. Pivotal player’s on that show! They DONOT belong in the cast photo of GH.

OMG! Really??? John/Todd/Starr have been on OLTL over 10yrs those are OL characters and NOT Gh characters errrrr they have been on verily a year and not even that if you include all the months john did even appear on GH no they are not part of GH esp the 50th!!!!!!

I agree — kept looking for them! They were definitely pivota in storyline to get them to 50!

I they didn’t include Todd,John,or Starr that is strange to me. They have been on
for a while and should have been in this cast picture.

That’s wonderful. They DONOT belong in the 50th anniversary of GH. They had nothing to do with the ratings bonanza of GH over the 50 years!!!!!

Hurray! I don’t have to see their face in the cast photo.

They probably were not around. Nothing to do with time there – the actor who plays Rafe is in the picture. You people need help – there’s no conspiracy!

Ha! that is the first thing I looked for as well!

well since the stars are still GH actors, they should have been there… doesn’t matter what name they’ll go by when they return, they are still part of GH now!

what is up with that, ABC?

the photo was taken about 2-3 weeks ago-well after the last day of filming for the OLTLer’s for now. Quit looking for things that aren’t there

Forget Todd, Starr, and John. How about Dante, Lulu, Jax, Brenda … all important characters who have been on the show for a long timE!

love it! Is it available for purchase?

Maybe they could make lamented copies of the photo to sell to fans as part of a fundraiser effort for amfar?

By the way Kim M.(ROBIN! ROBIN! ROBIN!) is in the photo!!! Doubt that was taken b4 she left, and i doubt ABC deliberately stuck in a cardboard figure of her. Would she do it if she had any sort of problem with the current regime? And i also doubt shes only back for just a photo shoot. Even if she isnt seen as much i feel she is still very much part of the show, and will return…full time or recuring. This is a soap, and not a show where everything is done in an hour. Soap viewing requires people with patients! Besides i see Sabrina more with someone like Milo or maybe Micheal now that the character of Starr will no longer be shining in PC. Meanwhile, i wonder if Rafe will turn out being related to Sabrina…Sabrinas cousin Juan Santiago did have an affair with Rafes mom Alison years ago, so there is always the possibility Juan could later turn out to be his daddy and not Caleb. Then Sabrina could be Rafes guardian.

Where is Jax, Brenda, Lulu, Dante, and Kevin?

Ys there should be another photo taken

I was looking for little Emma :(.

I agree no Emma be found

I wonder the same thing. This is just sooo wrong. Julie was there almost eight years and is excluded. Not good at all!!!!!!!!!Jax was there for years as well. All of these who are mentioned should have been included.

A lot were excluded from this cast picture!

they left out quite a few faces!

Why are some dressed up and some not? Y&R had a beautiful 40th cast photo.

this is the cast photo? how dissappointing, i thought they would all be dressed up for the photo? this looks like a picture of everyone put together after work. not a photo shoot of the stars together celebrating the 50th anniversary of a show.

agreed, and everyone currently on cast should be in it. Julie Berman is gone so I understand why she’d not in there. I really think they should have one in Nurses Ball garb.

Julie (Lulu) should have returned for the photo, just as Robin did. Jax, Brenda, Lucky, Dante, Keven and Steve burton should be in the cast photo as well.


These people should understand that WE are invested in these people and their character’s. If nothing else, we are looking forward to that cast picture wth ALL our favorites. I don’t care if they HAVE TO PHOTO SHOP ALL OF THEM IN.

I agree! I mean no art director! It looks like some were working in the yard and others wear a tuxedo! It’s ridiculous!

Lynn Herring dressed up on the left side actually makes her look OUT of place!

I agree….think it would have been a more glamorous shot befitting the 50th anniversary!! It looks like they took it between taping or before they left for the day…..kind of disappointing!!

you can tell it was taken during taping for the nurse’s ball…..some and gowns and tux’s….some not!! not a very classy pic for the 50th!!:(

I agree. The Y&R 40th cast photo looks like they are going to dinner at the White House with most in suits and gowns. Don’t they have a wardrobe dept. that could have found something more appropriate for the 50th anniversary photo.

Is that Kimberly McCoullough I see standing by IB?

It looks like her, but I find the photo to be poor quality. Don’t know why it’s so hard to see.

Its kim…and she is listed.

Its her, and her name is mentioned!

Great shot glad that Kimberly is included missing is actress who plays kristina n Dominic

No Kelly Thiebaud? What’s up with that?

there’s many people who I feel should be in this but since they are just temporarily back I’ll excuse their absence (Jax, Brenda,Robert, Kevin the OLTL characters) but Where’s Dante, Lulu, Kristina??? They are all regular characters on the show 🙁

“Lulu,” Julie Berman is gone. She quit and will not be back on. But don’t understand about Dante and Kristina. 🙁

I wish they had been dressed up too like the Y&R pic. As for the absences, Julie and the OLTL folks had already taped their last scenes. I saw Dominic at an event the weekend after the photo was taken and he said he forgot about it since he wasn’t taping that day.

I was expecting a Bigger and classier photo that Y and R. I am more disappointed that Rachel was not included, it shows that Luke is still the front and center of the show. Audrey should have been honored, she was there for 45 yrs.

I have a feeling Lindsay Morgan is out…

Yeah major player lulu or dante..what?? NO..Audrey Hardy..really bad ABC!!

Zowie!!!!! I love this picture right into my yearbook.. Thank u so much.. I’m real life journalis to kept track or keep it updates on GH!!!! this is incredible picture

No DZ or Kelly Monaco. JMB left but so did BB . I think all of them should of been in the picture

BB left but he is in the pic. hmmmm

It’s not fair that Kristen, Roger and Michael got excluded because of the stupid disput between ABC (All aBout Commission) got greedy and cancelled two soaps they KNOW they should NEVER have cancelled and now the common actor paid the price! It’s a small honor but sad at the same time that corporate greed made what is suppose to be a special occassion suck!!

Oh, ABC take a note from the #1 Daytime Soap network CBS when it comes to putting an anniversary together! The week leading up to Y&R 40th was absolutely wonderful. ABC and GH you are hitting it with the stories, but MISSING it with the history and characters!! Take a note from you competitors!!!!!!!! Oh also ABC, you don’t deserve to profit from Prospect Park!!!!!!!!

My god, people will complain about anything. Wonderful photo. They probably took it while as many cast members as possible were on set taping the Nurses Ball. Unfortunately, not everyone is going to be there at the same time. That’s why a few people are missing, and some are dressed up and some aren’t.

I agree Dan…no one seems pleased about anything GH does, and it makes me wonder why so many complainers even watch. Sometimes i think most of them would be happier if the show was cancelled.
My only complaints are usually with the conplainers, and if there is something i dont like i usually make harmless suggestions and dont say hardly anything negative because there is much more positive things happening on GH to keep me happy and satisfied, so on with the show!!!

Thank you!!! Let’s just be thankful that GH IS celebrating its 50th. As for those not in the picture? It is just a picture!!!!! Wouldn’t it be worse if all those mentioned weren’t even being invited back (like Rachel Ames)? The OLTL Three were probably legally enjoined from being so photographed, since at the time of the picture their status had not yet been legally determined. As for Kelly Thibaud? Probably taken while she was out with her broken leg. Everyone seems to be looking for political motivations to various appearances (or not) in the picture. They clearly took the picture with whomever was on the set that day.

Really…sometimes a picture is just a picture, and not a conspiracy.

I also do not get the CONSTANT complaining about GH. It is the best it has been in years, AND, it is still on the air. Can’t we be grateful for that, and for ALL THE LOVE Frank and Ron are putting into the 50th???? The previous regime would have ignored the 50th, and would have kept on pumping out shows about Sonny, Jason, and the Mob, and ONLY Sonny, Jason, and the Mob. We have Frank and Ron to THANK for the returns of Frisco, Laura, Scotty, Lucy, Kevin, Heather, Nicholas, Brenda, Jax, Noah Drake, Bobbi, Audrey, Rick, Alan, A.J., Faison, Robert, Duke, Helena and a few surprises not yet revealed (Robin? Lucky? Blackie? Leslie? Jeff?). We have much to celebrate and we owe Frank and Ron our gratitude for what they ARE giving us. One year ago this was even TOO MUCH to hope for.

As for myself, I CANNOT imagine a more lovely, faithful tribute to GH’s 50th. THANK YOU FRANK AND RON!!!!!!!!!

We are are talking about ABC, soaps… we should be happy that they are celebrating!

totally right dan, jim and tristan,enough with the complaining GH is great, i ‘m loving it everyday, and i’m so grateful its on and Celebrating this milestone. thank the universe for the team of FV and RC if not for them, GH would not be this good.

What about Tristan Rogers aka “Robert Scorpio”? I love what the “new” writing team and EP are doing with the show but why is Robert Scorpio always left out?

JEEZ! Some ppl commenting r just ridiculous..Y’all want some cheese w/ ur whine??? Quit complaining so freaking much and just enjoy.
Great pic (^_^)

I agree that Robert Scorpio was the best character he is so good now he is in a dumb coma, Maybe they will surprise us since Robin is in the photo.

I think this has been semi photo shopped. Front row: Marc Anthony Samuel and Tequan Richmond look like the same person…….

Where’s Rachel Ames?

That is a wonderful picture,where can I get this picture,please let me know

please send me a copy of my favorite show on tv for the last 35 years

i dont know what that means

Great photo!!!

Best Cast!!!

I see Robin, Please make her stay, Love love love Kimberly McCullough please bring back our scrubs.

The photo’s are always taken on a work day and everyone is invited to take part in the photo but if an actor doesn’t want to show up on his/her own time them that’s that. the actors who are dressed in street close are the ones that came on there own time so hats off to them for showing up. as for the OLTL people I’m sure it had to do with the lawsuit pending. It would had been nice if everyone was all dressed up but most likely they didn’t put that in the memo

No OneLifer’s in the photo.

Definately need a redo here. Too many left out! 🙁

*pivotal* sheesh

Where was Rachel Ames? She was brought back for the 50th?

I agree, there is missing characters, however, we have to realize that this is ABC they aren’t serious about Soaps.. I suppose it was asking too much to get Jason, Jacks, & Lucky to travel.

Whats abc got to do with or who isnt there…if they werent serious about GH they wouldnt hired FV or RC to save it after realizing how foolish they were to allow Brian Frons to convince them to cancel the other two. And i doubt we’d be seeing the nurses ball if they werent serious. Lucky is doing Nashville and Jax is in Hawaii with his family…these two might not have the time to fly in on what looks like a photo done in a moments notice. And it might have been too much work, lol, for Jason(steve burton) to do the photo shoot. Now im just pointing out all this in a friendly way as much as possible so i hope you dont take my reply the wrong way like some others might.

Dzz Dee – Steve Burton no longer qorks for GH. In fact, he works for Y&R now. GH isn’t going to promote his new soap. Ingo is doing DWTS and recently said in an interview that he can’t juggle both DWTS & GH the way Kelly did. It is too hard, he said. As for Jonathan, he said he couldn’t fit GH into his Nashville schedule. The actor himself said it. Please stop blaming the show until you have your facts straight. Ron and Frank are trying to give fans a 50th anniversary to remember. Let’s try to enjoybit without being critical of things out of GH’s control.

Exactly, You said , What I meant about those long ago key characters..another life & they moved on. ABC is still lacking in common sense! They could of easily back slide there decision to keep OLTL on ABC. As I am a fan of GH & OLTL.. But……… ABC has one soap.. I don’t think they are that serious!

People, get over it. ive been to parties and reunions where everyone didnt show up! There are dozens of reasons why? One reunion i attended we did a group photo: some dressed like they were from Dynasty and others dressed like they were from The Waltons. It was no big fuss…everyone was just grateful who were able to attend and it didnt stop the party because of some who couldnt commit: other committments, on vaction, illness or just didnt feel like it. Geez, sure a lot of unhappy people when there neednt be.

It’s just a photo, no big deal. Lots of the ‘regulars’ are missing. The fact that GH is still on the air is the important part. I’m just glad none of the oltl crowd is in the photo. My critique is the poor photo backdrop. Sean and Sonya appear to be beheaded bodies.

Thrilled to see Robin in the picture, there is still hope for her yet.

There’s a lot missing from this photograph and that’s the main reason I don’t watch this one-sided show anymore.

Why dont they bring Tristan Rogers back for the 50th and his daughter Robin get him out of the comma they can figue it out. All his fans want him back more then once every 4-5years it is ridiclous. Even if he is on another soap he could do it for the anniversary show.

waiting for my copy of this cast picture

Why wasn’t Tristan Rogers in this photo?. He was and is still an important character at GH.!!. Not the same without him, I can’t believe they put him in a coma and left it like that!!!! , Tristan Rogers made GH and I don’;t know why he isn’t: back on the set celebrating their 50th!!! He alway’s gets shafted, so not right!!! You need to bring him back or you will loose ratings again !!!!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: ‘Sprina’ in New York Part One

Thursday’s episode of General Hospital kicked-off with Trina (Tabyana Ali) and Spencer’s (Nicholas Chavez) adventures in New York City, where finally the fan favorite couple are getting some much needed, and waaaayyyyy overdue, alone time.

In story, Sprina arrive to their hotel room which has, thank God, one bed! Spencer heads out to get some theater tickets, leaving Trina enough time to video call her bff, Josslyn (Eden McCoy), and fill her in on how her first time alone with Spencer is going.

Trina, now in her nightgown, awaits Spencer’s return. When he does, Spencer tells Trina that everything is running on schedule. He won’t divulge what he has planned, but he has a surprise for her.  When Spencer asks what Trina wants to see on their trip, she lists all the museums she wants to go to.

Photo: ABC

After a knock on the door, champagne arrive. Getting flirty and romantic with one another, Spencer calls for a toast to the woman he loves, and Trina toasts to the both of them together.

Spencer realizes he needs to take a quick shower and heads to the bathroom, so they won’t be late for their dinner.  Later, we see Spencer in his fine blue suit while Trina is a vision in her fuscia-colored dress.

Photo: ABC

Overcome, Spencer tells Trina just how beautiful she is, and gifts her with a necklace so she remembers this weekend between them forever.  After they kiss again, it’s time for them to head out to dinner.  That’s the end of part one of Sprina’s trip to the Big Apple.

So, what did you think about the highly-anticipated Spencer and Trina scenes in New York City thus far? Were you all smiles? Are you looking forward to Friday, where many are hoping it’s the episode in which the lovebirds finally hit the sheets? Weigh-in via the comment section below.

Rena Sofer on Her General Hospital Comeback as Lois Cerullo: “She’s Still Loud and She’s Still Mouthy”

When Rena Sofer burst on to the soap scene 27 years ago as General Hospital’s Lois Cerullo, viewers knew out of the gate that this actress was something special, especially how she inhabited the one-of-a-kind outspoken and lovable woman from Brooklyn.

Now as previously announced Sofer is back on the ABC daytime drama series beginning on the October 10th episode. Rena last appeared on the show from 1993-1996, and again in 1997. She won a Daytime Emmy for her portrayal as Lois back in 1995 as the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Since Sofer’s original exit on General Hospital, she later returned to the soaps as Quinn Fuller on The Bold and the Beautiful from 2013-2022. However, the fan favorite actually started her daytime career on Loving as Amelia “Rocky” McKenzie, a role she played from 1988-1991.

With the current story about Ned Quartermaine’s (Wally Kurth) amnesia and believing he is former rock star, Eddie Maine, it’s the perfect timing for Lois to enter back into the picture to help her former husband and their daughter, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton).

Rena spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue about her highly-anticipated comeback, and how she stepped back into Lois’ skin: “It’s interesting to play her at this age. She’s still loud and she’s still mouthy. She was still a lot like me, except with a Brooklyn accent and nails.”

Photo: ABC

As to what fans can expect, Sofer shared: “This story isn’t about me.  The story is about Brook Lynn. The story is about Eddie Maine and Ned, so I need to respect that. This is not about me coming back and telling my story; this is about me coming back and supporting the stories that are there with me trying to create the knowledge of who Lois is now, 27 years later. So that is challenging, but also, part of the fun.”

The talented actress is also keenly aware of how GH fans have wanted her to return to GH for decades: “If they hadn’t spent the last 27 years constantly making little buzzing noises about Lois coming back, or me coming back as Lois, I wouldn’t be in this position. It’s inspiring, and I am forever grateful.”

Looking forward to seeing Rena reprising her signature soap role as Lois Cerullo? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
