General Hospital Casts Actor For Key Role!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

Looks like another hottie is on his way to Port Charles.  According to Soap Opera Digest, their sources have informed them that an African-American actor has landed a role on General Hospital.

They also added: “There is considerable buzz about the chemistry he generated during his screen test with a popular leading lady.”

So, who do you think this character is being brought in for?  What actor to you hope won the role?  What popular leading lady could they been talking about?

Will we see a wave  of new additions to the series, under new co-head writers Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante?  In their recent interview with SOD, it appeared they would be limiting that, but time will tell what and who is needed to service the new stories they are about to tell!  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Valeries father…he dates Olivia making things complicated for Valerie, Dante, and Lulu???

CeeCee

Good one, Jimh. But, is Olivia a leading dame? I think su may be on the right track. Perhaps a hunk is being brought in as a competitor/contender for Anna’s affection.Sloane’s adversary?

I wish they were recasting Judge Walters as a show of renewed interest in Leslie Charleson’s Monica.

su0000
Guest
su0000

ok-
”” a popular leading lady.”””
that ^^ leaves Valerie out.

Jordan is not yet a ‘leading lady’

considering it’s by Jean and Shelly they already have have the poor guy hooked up, so-

It’s not Carly
It’s not Tracy
It’s not Ava
It’s not Lulu
It’s not Sam It’s not Liz
Perhaps Anna I would love to have Anna in mixed affaire ..

then again- we have no age of the new guy, so a bit hard to call it ..

Alison
Guest
Alison

I’m all for more Anna period. If she happens to have great chemistry with the new guy sign me up. But can we please have a slow build. Regardless of what some writers have done, Anna doesn’t just hop into bed and fall in love or vice versa!!

Wish we knew the age of the man, that would help as to whom he may be with.

Right!! RC put Judge Walters with Monica out the clear blue simply because he didn’t want to write for Leslie Charleson…and sent A.J. up the steps into the light to try and make sure he could never return to the canvas..we know that ain’t true…GOODBYE SOOOO LONGGGG RC…BYE RC…KICK ROCKS…

Hoping they add a NEW Dr. to the mix..it is called General Hospital after all,
Patrick & Dr.O cannot be the only ones on staff..

CeeCee

Yes, Fanny. Patrick is the doctor of all trades…just like Dr. Daniel on Days. Genoa City Hospital seems to be the only one with a variety of doctors.LOL.

Guest

Yes, Fanny, especially since they saw fit to unnecessarily sacrifice Michael Easton’s Dr. Clay for God only knows what useful purpose???? Oh, right…to hire yet more newbies! Forget them…either Dr. Noah Drake or Dr. Jeff Webber should return to add some gravitas to the hospital staff !

@Shay…Hi Shay, hope all is well….
You’re absolutely right about Silas, his character was never given
enough attention or care, he was always outside looking in…
RC never did him justice, like I wrote below since he didn’t know
what to do with him, he did him in. Thought of U when I saw the
Revamped opening credits…Our “girl” Val-chops is in the lineup…
Meaning she’s staying put for the time being, since she’s about
to inform Dante she expecting…. His world is about t implode ❗️

Hello, Fanny! Sorry it took so long to respond! I’m quite well, thank you very much….just busy! (Fall is one of my favorite seasons, along with winter, so I am finally arriving at my time of the year!) Hope you are also feeling fine! As for Val-Chops, yep, looks like we’re stuck with her! They are using the same playbook as they did with the Sapster…..ignore her lack of appeal and unpopular storyline, keep on pushing her to the forefront and then double-down.—Too bad if we don’t like it!—I swear can barely stand to look at this show as it… Read more »

Sorry but I’m tired of the Suppression Narrative in this Country. It’s a bunch of crap kept alive by the White Liberal and you all keep eating it up!

Why shouldnt there be more characters of color,this isnt the 50’s anymore,The world will be better when people like you are no longer here .Let’s see more Asians and Hispanics too.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

…….Because there is no black and white. Characters come in ever shape, size and color. The color of a new character’s skin, black, white, red, yellow, brown, or purple should not impede hiring an actor, if he/she fits the bill.

Hi, Timmm. You had asked me if I like Sam and Jake as a couple. I am still on the fence. I certainly do not want him with Lizzie. I don’t know what Sam was like before, but, presently she is the better person. Sam is , at least, honest. That is a complete 180 for me. Nonetheless, Timmm, Sam has done nothing to wow me. She has never really stood out, to pique my interest. I would just like to see a personality….come out of her shell. Now, that is a dumb statement I just made. Well, considering she… Read more »

Co sign Belle.

If day time wants viewers they need to look to their audiences.

Salem looks like it’s segregated with a lone Asian character and two black actors who are lucky to get five minutes of air time combined in a two week span.

Btw, not to pick on Salem. GH has one Asian. YR has Jack’s never discussed Miss Saigon son. BB has zero.

Time to get over this weird fear of a community of people that includes folks of color instead of marginalizing them with nominally having one and declaring Mission Accomplished.

I always wonder where Kemo is, and why he never joins any family festivities…such as THANKSGIVING and CHRISTMAS. He’s probably in some third-world country as a missionary or in a dungeon somewhere. LOL.
I agree, Torkumada. I’m sure it isn’t from lack of actors. I would hope there is no racial profiling.

The other missing Abbott is Tracy. I suppose some folks like segregated world of blue eyed blondes in a size two dress at the expense of a collage of what this world looks like. Marcy on OLTL was brought on to pour tea for a skinny white girl. But she was a terrific actress and her character became a featured character and bland non dimensional skinny chick was gone. Nice to see that some on this board aren’t threatened by having more than one, token actor of color. Btw, no one ever paid the rent by sitting on a panel.… Read more »

Yes, but it reads”popular leading actress” which negates the idea of Valerie because she is neither popular or a leading actress.
I think Timm might be on to something when he says he will be paired up with Olivia and he might be Valerie’s father.

Maybe it’s Keith Hamilton Cobb, who used to play Noah Keefer on AMC?
He’s now in his early fifties. Yes, it would help if we knew his age.

Hi, Harry.
Yes, that makes sense. But, I thought that one of our fellow-posters said he was in his twenties. If that’s the case, I had mentioned that he could be Valerie’s half brother; Justus Ward as both their father.

LoL Valerie doesn’t need a man…….. Depending on where this story goes, she’s got either Dante or Dillon. I’d prefer her with Dante though…… LoL This guy might be her dad.

@CeeCee… Bonjour Sweets….
I believe Carlos is alive and well…looking for revenge, what if he’s

As for Silas… I gather RC couldn’t write for his character so he
simply wrote him off…Done in poor taste.

@Fanny. Bon après-midi, Fanny. I have learned to trust all of you, that is, the longtime fans who know GH and its characters inside out. I also believe, the shooter could be Carlos, as I intimated earlier. I am not familiar with the Wu’s, but you know better than I. As MadMaddie, the shooter is probably a character that is on his/her way out. As far as Silas? Are we sure Michael was let go? Is it possible that because of his multiple projects, he decided to leave? I find it so droll and annoying for Sonny to, again, have… Read more »

CeeCee, thanks for your kind words — I just noticed them. I also appreciate your reflections on 9/11 and its impact on you and your family.

And speaking of terrorists… It’s admirable to keep up the fight about GH’s Sonny. There is indeed a “mob” of GH fans who feel the same way and are passionate about having such a character who routinely and literally gets away with murder.

Finally, from what I infer, you and your husband seem like terrific people! Take care.

Probably a TJ recast. If not, it is a sin to bring someone new in when Sean Blakemore filled that role and was a good actor. Lets just hope the casting director is involved and not Jean and Shelly. They tried to increase the afro american population on Y&R and the one black actor who played Tyler was one of the worst actors EVER!

Victoria
Guest
Victoria

OK. As we have no age limit… yet, could this possibly be a replacement for TJ as an interest for Molly? It’s a possibility. But I would like to see Sean Butler back and running Kelly’s instead of trying to be a “hitman” for Sonny. He couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn even if it was right in front of him! Neither could Carlos for that fact. But… for me, there’s only going to be DUKE for ANNA. Sloane’s a “sluff” who’s only interested in looking out for himself and screwing everyone else over.

Jordan needs a man since Sean is gone. She is so pretty that I cant see her not attracting a man for very long. Valerie needs to go as she is a real PITB and will keep trying to break up Lulu and Dante.

Why does the actor being hired have to be announced as an “African American”. I don’t understand why such a description is needed. Just ‘actor hired’ tested well, etc is sufficient as is. They could drop other hints beside his race if they want speculation on what kind of role, who he may be paired with,etc. Same with when a Hispanic actor/actress is announced as a possible cast member.

Couldn’t it be young Tommy Hardy (Audrey’s grandson)?

At this point I don’t care who they cast as long as he isn’t given the role of yet another mobster/bad guy/criminal/bully. The show could do with a character who is actually a good guy who is not associated with the mob or the lunatic fringe. The PCPD is riddled with officers whose loyalties lead to chewing up the scenes: Jordan, Dante, and Nathan each has questionable associations. Jeez, I am bored silly with all the angst. Jordan chose the law over her son long, long ago. Her anguish is understandable but does not make for exciting drama. Dante, didn’t… Read more »

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.
