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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

Agree!

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.

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.

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
Guest

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.… Read more »

@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….

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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.

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.. 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… Read more »

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 🙂

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 ..

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.

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… Read more »

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.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

Photo:ABC

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Photo: JPI

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
