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!

I’ll take already bloated casts for $1000.

Kristina…Alexis daughter?

Bring Kelly T back….I want Britt! Nathan looked sad to lose his sis:(

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.

Jeremy

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?

Jenny Brooks

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!!!

Tim

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

Patty

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, then maybe Kim Matula, Brooke Newton or even Farah Fath.

Kelley Missal! Extremely talented girl who definitely be an asset to the show. Any show, for that matter.

Very sweet girl as well!

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
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.

Jeremy

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.

Timmm

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

jimh(leave it to beaver)

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
Timmm

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
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
Patrick

I dare say … Michael and Kiki

are worse than Daniel and Jenn

both pairs sink below interest

Timmm
Timmm

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
CeeCee

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.

Anita

How about Broolyn Ned’s daughter..

Jimmy
Jimmy

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.

I love gh

I’m hoping it’s Kristina. I like Tim’s idea of Brittany Underwood.

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.

Mary SF

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

I like Mariah and she and Kevin have good chemistry…Justin H. and Gina T. are also good and Kelly S. too…im watching YandR more because of them!!!

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!!

Laurie
Laurie

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 act like Robb Derringer as Agent Sloane, who had mad chemistry w/Finola Hughes. However seems he’s not unpacking his bags in PC, as he has tweeted he just shot his last scenes last week. As long as GH continues casting on that level I can roll with it.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
