I so remember Ann Jeffries from “Topper” when I was a kid. And was so happy to see her as Amanda Barrington on GH. She had that wonderful special quality of grace and sophistication that I’ve always admired. God speed Ms Jeffries.

Back in the day, I just loved her as Marion Kerby on Topper and was so excited when she came to GH.
Thank you Ms. Jeffreys for years of wonderful entertainment. RIP.

What a lovely lady and actress! Pure class and glamour until the very end! Even into her 90’s, Miss Jeffreys always left an impeccable and effortlessly stylish impression upon her public…her quite youthful beauty and ageless grace were utterly amazing! Professionally speaking, I never failed to enjoy her memorable appearances as Amanda Barrington on GH and elsewhere in primetime. To say her kind of soigne’, sophisticated soap star is a vanishing breed is a true understatement, and a very sad one at that. She will cetainly be missed, but surely never forgotten!

Classy lady! I recall her on GH as Amanda and the actor/character added a lot to the daily storytelling. Glamour, some class conflict, some humor. Applause applause!

I remember her distinctively on GH in the 80s rubbing shoulders with the Qs, in hospital board of directors’ meetings, and with son Derek. but didn’t realize she was on the show for twenty years. I miss the days when GH was able to get an actress of her experience as a supporting player on the show.

Amanda was the epitome of class, although she did dally with Leo at Lorena’s spa back in 80’s 🙂

Brooklyn Rae Silzer Making A Return To General Hospital

As General Hospital continues to surprise its viewers with some notables from the show’s history, look for another fan favorite, Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) to make her way back to Port Charles for an appearance coming up next month.

Excited to finally be able to announce she will reappear on GH, Silzer tweeted: “Dreams come true! Thank you so much @GeneralHospital @valentinifrank for having me back!”

Emma Scorpio Drake’s return is scheduled for Thursday, February 6th, but due to coverage of the President Donald Trump impeachment trial and current episodes being pushed back, this date may change.

The last time viewers saw Emma was back in 2018, when she came to town to visit her grandmother, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) for Christmas.

Would you like to see Emma stick around Port Charles? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nikolas & Spencer’s Reunion Leaves Ava Attempting To Bring Peace: What Did You Think Of The Key Scenes?

The long-awaited and highly-anticipated reunion of Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and his son, Spencer aired on Monday’s episode of General Hospital.  And it reminded us all how much we love Nicolas Bechtel as the young Cassadine.

While Ava (Maura West) first talks with Spencer in order to prepare him for his father’s appearance and that he is alive; when Nikolas shows up and receives a hug from Spencer, it appeared all might be OK between them, but how could it be? Nikolas let his son believe he was dead for over three years!

Next, Spencer lays into his father for choosing claiming the Cassadine fortune and keeping hidden over telling him that he was alive; leaving Spencer alone with two broken legs, in a boarding school in Europe, and grief-stricken.

The best scenes were actually shared by Maura West and Bechtel, when Ava tries to reason with the disappointed and disillusioned young man over his father’s return, which has a double meaning for her.  She says, “The person you love most in the world just came back to you. That makes you the luckiest boy on the planet. Can’t you see that?”  For Ava, she is obviously drawing a parallel to her losing her daughter, Kiki and wishing she was alive.

Meanwhile, just how will Nelle get away with insinuating herself in Wiley’s life by blackmailing Bead? How will she keep Willow away from the child she thinks is hers?

Then, it’s the return of Nicolas Bechtel as Spencer Cassadine as Nikolas with Ava in tow, finally tells his son that he is alive! Looks like Spencer will not be as forgiving as one thought. Will he seek revenge on his father?

And it looks like Jax and Nina may finally give int o temptation and their longstanding attraction to one another, as Valentin faces custody issues with Scarlett via Lulu.

The end of the teaser, reveals gun-fire and a shoot out that goes down on the pier that could change the course of lives forever, with it looking like Mayor Laura has bee shot.  How will this all turn out?
