Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital has put out another casting call, and this time it’s for a female actress in a contract role. The part will begin taping new episodes of GH starting in February 2015.

According to the character breakdown via Soap Opera Digest it describes the character as: “Caucasian, early 20s, beautiful, dynamic, charismatic.”

So, just who could this gal be anchored to on the current canvas? Romantically linked?  Is this truly a new character as SOD lists, or could it be a recast?

Put on your casting director hats and let us know, who you think would fit the bill for the role? Anyone who had appeared on your favorite daytime or primetime soaps in the past? Someone new? Share your thoughts below!

how about Kelley Missal, Heidi Mueller, Brooke Newton, Brittany Underwood etc

I agree. Depending on who the character is I could see Brooke as Serena Baldwin. Kelly or Brittany as Christina Collins. If it’s for Krissy Davis “Corinthos” then I suggest Alexandra Chando. She’s 28 in real life but could pull off playing a little younger.

Kelley Missal as a Christina recast.

This. But would it be weird for Starr, I mean Kiki, to be younger than Danielle, I mean Kristina?

Kelley Missal is a great idea! Loved her on OLTL!

This is Serena Baldwin. I would suggest Kim Matula. My No.1 pick. If not, go with an unknown!!!

Unless she’s not interested,GH should bring back Carly Schroeder as Serena,otherwise Kim Matula would be a great choice.

I totally agree with Michael. Too many story lines and actors not used enough. 🙁

This should either be Kristina Davis or Serena Baldwin. If not, then I don’t think the role is needed. What GH needs to do when casting new roles is dig into its past and bring back roles instead of creating new characters that don’t have ties to the canvas. The cast is already bloated, so all new characters should have a purpose and connection. If it’s for Kristina, then I think Brittany Underwood or Kelley Missal would do well in the role. Honestly, anyone would be better than the last actress to play Kristina, Lindsey Morgan. If it’s for Serena,… Read more »

Yeah, I loved Robb Derringer as Agent Sloane. Good solid actor.
I too, loved Lacey as Kristina, however, I’m sure if the show brings the character back, the role be recasted. I’d love to see Kelley Missal go at it with Nancy and Maurice.

I think it may finally be Kristina… at least I hope… I noticed Alexas brought her name up with Julian yesterday, and even mentioned that they had never met..huge clue there…. I thought the prior actresses were perfect , in fact the first actress looks just like Molly!

Maybe it’s a GOOD love interest for Michael… that boy needs someone like Abby…Kiki is BORING… but I do like her better with “the captain”..though I like him anyway!

Jimmy

I thought Lindsey Morgan, the actress after Lexi Ainsworth, was awful! She whined and complained about everything and wasn’t convincing at all. Hopefully, if it is a Kristina recast, the find someone more suitable for the role.

I loved Michael with Abby. She was an interesting character. Kiki is…in Nina’s words, “coo-Kiki, she’s coo-coo”. I loved Nina’s rants about Kiki earlier in the summer.

Tim

GH seems to be staying away from former Prospect Park actors,so it’s unlikely that they’ll go with Kelley Missal before the lawsuit is settled,Brittany Underwood never worked for PP so they might choose her.

Please be a Kiki recast, please be a Kiki recast!

Me thinks she’ll be Nina’s thought dead child…at first i thought Kiki would be Nina’s but now me thinks the newbie might be her!!!

Timmm
Guest

I thought of that, as well. Her daughter showing up may just snap her out of her funk and bring her back to PC. Nina needs something to hold onto. [Besides Ava’s neck!]

CeeCee

As usual, jimh, that is a great thought. I lost faith in Kiki being Nina’s long, lost child as well. But you may have hit on something.
I also agree with Timmm. Good scenario that, Timmm. This newfound-lost daughter may be the cure for Nina. I would be so very happy if this became a reality.

Kristen Alderson has a 3 year contract.. Def not a Kiki recast..

Patrick

I dare say … Michael and Kiki

are worse than Daniel and Jenn

both pairs sink below interest

Timmm
Guest

Michael can act but he just bores me and is too young to be in the Q boardroom. Kiki, the actress is a nice girl but her character is ANNOYING!

CeeCee
Guest

So true, Patrick. I can’t think of any one thing that brings this couple to the fore as interesting. I loved the actress as Starr….but Kiki and Michael are as sparkling and interesting as pewter. Did they ever have any fun as young people are wont to do?……my grandparents have more fun than they.
I do not like Michael too much and his new persona fits him even less. His sudden callousness does not compute. He always has that hurt puppy-look about him….child-like. I simply cannot see him sitting in the executive chair of a big conglomerate.

How about Broolyn Ned’s daughter..

Jimmy
Guest

This is definitely possible, with Ned being back in town and Nikolas fresh out of a romantic partner with Britt’s departure. But if it is Brooklyn, they should bring back Adrienne Leon, I thought she was good in the role.

How about NO ONE! This show needs to weed out characters/actors, not add them! Get rid of the dead wood first, then think about bringing people back.

How about write for the bloated cast of characters you have now Ron… your addiction to new characters shows how bored you get writing for the show.

GH’s # of contract actors are in line with DAYS & Y&R. Yes, there are also many recurring characters on the show, but they are that – recurring. Britt, Mac & Felix are either gone or now recurring. Sabrina seems next to either go or go recurring. It’s the natural progression on soaps. Some leave. New ones replace them. As long as I’m entertained, that’s what matters. And lately I’ve been entertained. I do hope the character is someone connected to the show. I trust TPTB to create an entertaining show, whether the cast is 20 or 40.

If they want to do another raid on the Y&R cast they are more than welcome to snatch Hunter King–just keep your paws off Camryn Grimes—LOL

Oh Mary SF,

Don’t tease about such things!! Hunter King must never, ever darken GH’s door! No worries. She’d never get her whining, zzzzzzing foot in the door.

Im hoping it’s a Kristina recast with Jackie Woods!!!! Go GH steel ome daytime’s best younger lead actresses!! Brad bell certainly does not know how to use talent. Just imagine her against Maxie over Nathan!!!! Ummm What are you guys waiting for! She is willing to come back to daytime full time if the offer is right. oh and she and Nickolas would be steamy too!!

JW is lovely, but is going back to B&B for limited episodes so they say. She’s not but early 20’s as the casting call says is too young for Nikolas, but any age is wrong for him right now! The LAST thing Nik needs is a woman! He can’t even raise his son-LOL. I liked LA as Kristina. They could just bring her back. This is the age range that is sorely missing on the show so I’m fine with the casting call. Poor Michael & Morgan have slim pickins. I don’t mind new or returning characters if they can… Read more »

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
