Another new character is coming to Port Charles very soon!  According to Soap Opera Digest, General Hospital is casting a contract role for a young female.

The casting call that has gone out relates that the ABC soap opera is looking for a gal described as “complex late teens Caucasian female who is beautiful and dynamic.”

The role is to start to shoot brand new episodes of GH two months from now.  Thinking late teens or early twenties, who do you think the character will be brought in for? 

Let us know your thoughts … and who would you like to see on GH from daytime or primetime to fill this part?  Comment below!

Yes GH needs to increase 18-49 demo. Someone for Morgan. Loved the actress who played Langston on OLTL.

You don’t think a woman blackmailing a 70 year old man for sex is going to increase the 18-49 demo? 🙂

I don’t think you need to add more young characters to attract that demo. And 18-49 year old viewers aren’t necessarily looking to watch teenagers or characters in their early twenties. GH has young characters already on canvas who they don’t write for and give real story to.

TJ’s recent story was a plot point so Jordan can owe Sonny. He’ll get involved with Sonny now but will be MIA soon enough. Molly is non-existent. Morgan and Kiki are useless fools. They just keep adding cast, piling on, underutilizing the cast they have and are incapable of telling engaging stories.

They have enough younger characters already if they would write properly for all of them and integrate them properly. As mentioned TJ and Molly who are very young. Morgan and Kiki (although she’s totally useless and I’d be for a new character if she replaces her).

Then you have Maxie, a little older, who is reduced to hanging out in bed with Nathan (also replaceable) and being the character who catches viewers up on what everyone else on the show is doing. Michael and Sabrina are young and have good chemistry, they actually are getting a story now.

Then you have Liz, Jake, Sam, Patrick, Nik. All attractive, all mid to late thirties. Young enough to engage the 18-49 demo; they are in the 18-49 demo. GH doesn’t need new characters to attract viewers. GH needs better writing and storytelling to do that. And casting more actors from other soaps has not been an answer either.

Also, there’s another casting call out for a late 20’s male as well. TPTB just seem to be spinning in it with no real direction.

You nailed it Matilda! You’re exactly right.

I believe there is a Tony Geary interview somewhere (can’t remember how old it is) and he was explaining writers get residuals with every/any new characters they bring to the canvas. I got the impression “character creation” was a competitive thing among the writers. Heaven forbid they focus their time on and receive residuals for “character development” and good story telling among the existing characters. It sounded like the staff writers turnover in droves and don’t stay longer than a few years. I read something where Tristan Rogers explained soaps today are owned by such huge corporations now but in the 80’s and 90’s and earlier, soaps had more freedom and better budgets. Not in so many words, Tristan was saying there have been too many cooks in the kitchen for a while now. “Art by committee” never works well. Tristan also explained social media has taken the place of tv ratings. He explained a crappy show can stay on forever as long as people are commenting about it on social media. Whether the comments are good or bad doesn’t matter to them. Pre social media, bad comments forced tptb to take a hard look at their show before it got cancelled. Now all they care about is if people comment at all.

Hey, can anyone out there tell me who the actress is that is playing Jennifer Smith? She seems familiar, but I can not place her.

smoochie

In the mid 80s Holly played the roll of Ivy (recurring stat) on DOOL and then moved on to play Cassie in OLTL(she took over the roll) for a few years. I believe she was on Baywatch for a year and has appeared on many other television shows throughout her pretty extensive career, which also includes work on the big screen in the 90’s.

Claire

I’m surprised RC hasn’t written Valerie and Dillon hooking up, yet. But clearly they want to create a new character or bring in Serena finally. So, the girl who played Langston would be a good choice.

But they really need to bring back Kristen Alderson because this new Kiki still isn’t any good. And the bad writing isn’t helping any.

As a writer, it’s frustrating to see so many formerly intelligent characters turned into instant idiots. Prime example is Silas Clay. A Doctor who managed to have Sam investigated and proven unfit to raise his nephew then has a slimy affair with the scam artist herself.

Why? What was the point of putting those two characters together when it was a bad joke the first time around when they both appeared on Port Charles? Michael Easton is a fantastic actor but looks decidedly out of place with KM who obviously needs cue cards and a teleprompter to recite her own lines.

The writing is just as bad no matter who he gets paired with lately. I was surprised he decided to re-sign with the show. It’s been going downhill and is only a matter of time before it gets canned with FV and RC in charge.

Yes, Claire! Yes, Denisefan! The writing is very bad. I watched GH regularly. I stopped – there is not even one storyline that interests me. I wish that Jean Passanante, the writer that moved from YR to GH, will make a difference.

The writing is not bad!! I love Ron and we should be gratefull to him because if i remember correctly not that many fans were happy with Guza or JFP and under them GH had less than a year… So I say Thank you Ron and Frank for the return of vets, of the nurses ball, the Jeromes and thank you for Lucas and Brad.

I love gh
I love gh

KM is not a bad actress – I love her! She was great with Easton on PC, though I didn’t enjoy her character with Silas as much as John. She can act am with pretty much anybody, including Tracy – really enjoyed those scenes.

I hope it’s one of Lucy’s daughters.

CeeCee

I had no idea Lucy had more than one daughter.
You may have something there, C. It could be that due to this Nikolas/Quartermaines/Lucy imbroglio regarding ELQ, there is a good chance Lucy’s daughter also comes into the picture. Perhaps Lucy ceded some control (share) to her daughters? Ergo, the need for a new actress.
On the other hand, it could be Tracy’s granddaughter.

Laurie
Laurie

CeeCee, wasn’t it you that was such a big fan of young Patricia on the anniversary show, Chloe Lanier? I was too and would love for her to be a regular cast member. GH needs this demo bad!!

Rose
Rose

To the best of my knowledge Lucy had two miscarriages, and became the surrogate Mom to Dominique and Scotty’s baby…who became known as Serena. Since Dominique died, I think Lucy considered Serena as her own.

Lucy has had so many sides to her personality on GH. She started out as a understated librarian, and “oh” the places she’s been and trouble she’s caused. She’s a real survivor and far more interesting, funny and “clever” than just the over enthusiastic organizer of the Nurses Ball or Ms. Van Helsing with the vampire story. So looking forward to a good Lucy/Nik/ELQ story. Just hope writers keep her in the loop after she voted for Nik.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Laurie.
Yes, Laurie, I was one, among others, who loved young Patricia. She moved me. I had forgotten about that. And, yes, I agree….she would add ‘heart’ to the show…..something that is become rarer and rarer….

davidevansmith
davidevansmith

Rose, and others….

Lucy was Serena’s surrogate mom, and I believe adopted her, but I’d need to research that, cause Serena’s custody was tossed around in 1997/1998 when Rex Stanton used Serena to try to get Dominique’s estate.

But Lucy DID also adopt Christina Devlin, the biological daughter of Julie Devlin and Frank Scanlon (on Port Charles). Christina was born to Julie while she was convicted of the General Homicide murders (in partnership with crazy Dr. Greg Cooper, based on the murder mystery penned by Kevin Collins). Julie broke out of Ferncliff and Chris Ramsey delivered the baby, who Julie named Christina after Chris. I believe the baby was originally abandoned, found by Lucy and adopted and raised by her and Scott while they were married around 1998/1999. Julie eventually left the show and kidnapped Christina when leaving Port Charles. Lucy was devastated. During the Miracles Happen story arc, Julie returned to reveal to Chris that she was terminally ill, and she returned Christina to Lucy’s custody, with Christina reappearing for Lucy’s wedding to Kevin at Christmastime. Since then, Christina was little-seen, and eventually faded away, said often to be off-screen with Scott, but never appearing with Scott while he was appearing on GH. Christina MIGHT have appeared in a holiday episode of GH at the Brownstone while Scott was on GH either dating Laura during her divorce from Luke, or dating Bobbie, I can’t recall. But on Scott’s frequent trips in and out of GH, Christina never appeared again, but by then Lucy was off-canvas because PC was canceled and she didn’t return to GH. It’s been unclear ever since what happened to Christina.

I also don’t know whether they would introduce Lucy & Scott’s Christina Baldwin to the canvas, when Alexis and Sonny also have a daughter Kristina off canvas, but more recent and fresh in the audience’s minds. I hate when soaps (ANY two soaps) reuse character names because conflicts like this come up. LOL.

Thanks, David. Your synopsis certainly helps. If truth be known, I could never keep those details straight in, my head. LOL.

Love it! Carlos was another interesting character totally wasted. Why do the writers insist on writing all characters into a corner, hooking up EVERYONE, IMMEDIATELY, and making all women stupid and helpless/hopeless. If they do that with the new contract player, what do they have? Another dead-end storyline.

Harry

Nancy, yes couples hook up immediately and yet, they’re isolated from Port Charles society.
No one’s stories link up to one another anymore.

Hopefully related to someone on canvas…Nik will probably have a long lost daughter or God help us if its Franco…best if she is Scotts daughter!!!

Patrick

“i” hope it’s Serena Baldwin

Scotty Baldwin has been so funny lately… this would only add to his layer

Laurie
Laurie

I wouldn’t mind Serena. The actress who played her is just as beautiful still & I don’t know why they wouldn’t just cast her if available, but if they couldn’t get her I’d have to vote for the actress who played young Patricia Spencer on the April 1 Fluke/Luke reveal show. She was soooooooo good.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I love Scotty. He is comical, you’re right….sardonically so!

I think it will be Lila Rae Q? If its Brooklyn I would hire Victoria Justice. Maybe look at a former young soap star who is out of work? No Kardashians PLEASE!

I don’t being rude to ask u.. Who is the heck is that? I watched Gh when the evil girl named Jennifer snow, enemy of spencer ..who played the part for her? I never seen her in the past, I just came back to 2005 when Jason Thompson was introduced debut being dr. Patrick drake

CeeCee

If you are asking who Victoria Justice is? She is a remarkable young actress with a “superlicious ” voice…LOL. that is what my nine-year old niece call it. She is/was on Nickelodeon’ ZOEY101 and VICTORIOUS.

Harry
Harry

Good Lord, they need to reduce the inventory of actors, not increase it.
Please, there is already an over saturation of characters whom I do not care about.
Get rid of Kiki, Morgan, Nina and Valerie. And while Maura West is a good actress, the writing for Ava and Denise has been deplorable and I wish they’d get rid of her too because I don’t see how they can fix that character.
GH has become the hoarder of all soaps. Someone call in 1 800-Got-Junk?

Patty

Could not have said it better myself especially the part not to increase because all the good actors have less storyline! 🙂

Patty..
GH has a revolving cast..
It does not use the same 11 characters year round, as Y&R ..
GH rotates its’ characters.. many have other projects they need to tend to and ABC/GH allows them to have other projects..
The GH rotates stories/screen time..
If GH had a smaller cast there would be no stories because most would be busy LOL
GH needs a larger cast because of their formatting..
Also– Not having most on contract then they can be called when a story for them..
GH is not like the other soaps.. It does not run as the other soaps..
Y&R has the same characters on screen 24/7, not a lot variety there.

su0000
su0000

ohh my!
Harry, are you having a bad hair day?

I think they should have never brought Laura back and she should be let go, she no longer fits into GH.. and she’s just not all that good..
I’m not having a bad hair day, just telling it like it is 🙂

ok-
there was an actress with the online AMC, she was Todd’s daughter?
She was very good!
I’d like to have her with GH.. yuppers she she was/is powerful ..

CeeCee
CeeCee

SU, are you talking about Dani Manning (Kelley Missal)? I love her. Yes, good idea. Also, Brittany Underwood who played Starr’s best friend, Langston, as Thomas suggested, would be perfect.

Rose

Su…On reading your “revolving cast” comment it reminded me of how I see a lot of jobs.
I’m at a stage where opportunities in my major professional life aren’t available anymore. So I’m lucky to have part-time job in a bookstore which keeps the doer in me active, and the social and intellectual stimulated.

As with most other retail jobs, it’s very rare to see full time jobs…just part time. Won’t get into the bottom line reasons. Part of the brave new, bottom-line world…insert alarm bells here.

But getting back to the rotating GH cast comparison with retail, when you have a larger turnover because of part time only, and no guarantee of a “contract” depending on the ratings/economy, you lose a sense of continuity and familiarity between store staff and customers. And there is also a lose of staff commitment to the show, and vice-versa. Maybe that’s part of what some of us are sensing in in our moments of discontent with GH.

O let’s give Sabrina a sister then she can hang out in the apartment with Felix’s sister who went to her room one day and just disappeared—LOL.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

There are several characters i wish would enter that same room and disappear: Nina, Franco, Sabrina, Jordan, Nathan, Maxie, Rosalee, TJ and Alexis…hell, dump half the cast!!!…lol

Bingo, Jimh! And don’t forget Val-Chops! Ric and Molly, as well! (Although I can tolerate Maxie and even Nathan….he is after all, Dr. O’s son!!!! LOL….)

Rose

I’m hoping when Tony/Luke leaves there will be some sanity about who and how many come and go. But GH definitely doesn’t need to add ANY newbies right now. First they had some great actors come on for whom they are writing lame stories. Franco/Roger and Nina/ Michelle come to mind. Then they bring on others with great fanfare, and just as quickly they are gone…Rebecca/Hayden. And then there are the cameo appearances. Fun once in a while, but they don’t add long term…just gimmicks. And as far as the teen+ actors they already have, wouldn’t it be great if they wrote story lines for them where they did more than nothing. They might even surprise some critics if they had something to work with.

Patty

Thank you for your great comment, I could not agree more! Looking forward to reading more of your opinions. I am a big fan of GH and I will be watching no matter how the stories are played out 🙂

Patty…Oops! I sent my reply to Laurie that was intended for you. I wanted to thank you back. Also wanted to add Michael Easton/Silas to list of actors who have been under used since coming onto GH from OLTL.

Chloe Lanier-the actress who played young Pat Spencer on the 52nd Anniversary show, April 1st. She was fantastic!

Thanks Laurie. Add Micael Easton/Silas to the list of under utilized actors since coming over from OLTL. And like you, I’m a big GH fan and will keep watching.

I’m leaning at this casting call could be for aging Joss(Jax & Carly’s daughter)!

I imagine that the new young female is being cast as a possible love interest for the character of Dylan. Chrishell Stauss might be a good fit, and certainly would be a good addition to Port Charles.

If you caught the end of Monday’s episode of General Hospital, just as Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck) was ramping up her efforts to threaten Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) on the pier, she is stopped in her tracks by none other than Anna Devane!  And with that, it signals the return of all-time GH favorite and powerhouse actress, Finola Hughes, who has been off the ABC daytime drama series for an extended period of time.

With the return of the mighty Hughes comes some intriguing romantic storypoints in that: the man who proposed to Anna before she left Port Charles, Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton), has found out that he is a father to Hayden’s (Rebecca Budig) child.  Previously, he thought the child had died, but Hayden lied and thus the two have moved from icy towards each other, to growing closer.

What will happen when Anna finds out what has gone in Port Charles while she was away?

ABC and GH released this week’s promo which teases a moment where Anna announces she has returned while Finn and Hayden are together.  You can check that out below.

Now that Finola is back, what are your hopes for Anna in story? Finding the bad guys and finding love with Finn, or will her story take another twist and turn that no one saw coming? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
