General Hospital Co-Stars to Pay Tribute to Jackie Zeman in Livestream Event

The soap world was devastated back on May 9th of this year, when we learned of the passing of Jackie Zeman who played Bobbie Spencer on General Hospital for 45 years.  Jackie was 70-years-old at the time of her death.

Zeman became part of pop culture as Nurse Bobbie Spencer on the ABC daytime drama series, and was front and center in some of the series most iconic storylines (B.J.’s heart transplant story). She was also one-half of the most memorable brother/sister duo on the soaps, as Luke (Tony Geary) and Bobbie from the wrong side of the tracks, trying to change their lot and luck in life. Throughout her career, Jackie gave us moments that made her unforgettable.

Several of Jackie’s former GH co-stars are coming together for a special livestream event this Thursday, August 31st beginning 8 pm ET/5pm PT on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, where they will share stories and their remembrances of working with Jackie, and getting to know her as a friend.

Joining Michael Fairman will be: Kin Shriner (Scott), Rick Springfield (ex-Noah), Brad Maule (ex-Tony), Tamara Braun (ex-Carly, GH, now Ava, Days, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio), and Sam Behrens (ex-Jake).  With many of the men in Nurse Bobbie’s life participating, and one of the actresses who played Bobbie’s daughter, Carly, this is a not-to-be-missed celebration for Jackie.

This is a not to be missed event. I’ll be there. Thank you Michael.

Will I be able to watch this later that night or the next day? I will be at Maurice Bernard’s live show then.

Oi do not have live stream this not fair will it be on tv

You just need to go to the link above that will take you to the Michael Fairman channel on YouTube

Will there be an on screen celebration coming up. And did Tony Geary ever release any statement after his “sister” died?

Geary actually did release a touching statement. Google Geary Zeman to find it.

Thank you for doing this. I’m looking forward to it. She is missed on GH and by the fans. Wondering when GH will be acknowledging her passing in an episode?

Thank you Michael! I am so looking forward to hearing their memories of Jackie and the better GH days.

Love and miss Jackie, so much. Rest well. ❤️

I read this too late, at 10 p.m. I hope you’ll upload it on a website so we can watch it. Also, when will GH do the memorial episode? Carly still talks about Bobbie as if she’s still alive. It’s about time they did an episode remembering Bobbie’s 45 years on GH!

KIn is gold. Tamara always the best Carly. Wish they would recast. Glad they did that

Donna Mills, Linda Gray, Nicollette Sheridan, Morgan Fairchild, Loni Anderson to Appear in Lifetime’s 80s and Soap-Themed Holiday Movie

Wowza! Now here’s a line-up of soap opera and primetime favorites all in one movie! Coming up for the holidays, Lifetime has revealed they have an 80s and soap-themed film starring: Donna Mills (ex-Knots Landing, General Hospital), Linda Gray (ex-Dallas), Nicollette Sheridan (ex-Knots Landing and Dynasty), Morgan Fairchild (ex-Falcon Crest, SFT, DAYS et al) and Loni Anderson (ex-WKRP in Cincinnati).

Filmed earlier in 2023, Ladies of the 80’s is said to follow five soap opera divas (how fun and perfect!), as they reunite to shoot the final Christmas episode of their long-running soap opera!

In story, the producer, Alex (Travis Burns) and director Nell (Taylor Ann Thompson), who happen to be old college friends, do their best to keep things on the rails but as the ladies come together, old rivalries resurface that threaten to tear the production apart. With the show nearly canceled before it even begins due to the ladies’ famous diva behavior, they reluctantly agree to set aside their differences and past secrets to “act” as if they all still love each other.  When old sparks reignite between Alex and Nell, the ladies become eager to play cupid and conspire to bring the couple together.  

But wait, there’s more! In addition to the five leading ladies, the cast also includes: Days of our Lives favorite Patrika Darbo (ex-Nancy), Alec Mapa, and Donna Mills’ real-life daughter, Chloe Mills, plus 80s heartthrob, Christopher Atkins.

There is even a Ladies of the 80’s theme song, performed by none other than 80’s pop star, Tiffany!

In a statement on the project, the movie’s EP Larry A. Thompson shared: “The opportunity to bring together Donna, Morgan, Loni, Linda and Nicollette, five powerhouse women into one holiday movie, has been like finding the perfect gift under the Christmas tree.”

The official airdate of the holiday movie will be revealed shortly in the networks’s A Wonderful Lifetime Holiday movie schedule. Deadline first shared the news.

Gregory Harrison Talks His General Hospital ALS Storyline, Battling Addiction, ‘Falcon Crest’ on Maurice Benard’s ‘State of Mind’

Film and TV star,  Gregory Harrison is currently appearing on ABC’s General Hospital in the role of Gregory Chase.  In story, Gregory is trying to come to the terms with the fact he has ALS and is now displaying symptoms of the disease that will ultimately claim his life.

On the latest episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny, General Hospital) You Tube series State of Mind, the actor opens up about the challenges of playing a character with ALS, how he has battled addiction, his prime role on Trapper John M.D and Falcon Crest and much more.

In fact, it’s actually the the 40th anniversary of Harrison’s solo TV Guide cover as Dr. George Alonzo “Gonzo” Gates on Trapper John, M.D.

Speaking on his General Hospital storyline, and Gregory Chase’s battle with ALS, Harrison detailed: “He’s a complicated character any way, but we’ve added now ALS into the equation and that’s a really fun technical calibration for me. It’s a relatively quick demise – three to five years, generally for ALS, and it moves along pretty quickly. The body deteriorates pretty quickly and things happen, and there is an emotional kind of reaction to those that my character has. My character reacts to the loss of things and that’s what I am starting to be able to play.”

Harrison added, on how he is playing the nuances of ALS in the scripts he is given, “Where am I going to put in that slip and fall? Where am I going to put in that tremor in my hand? Where I am going to put in  the stumble, or the slur of this word or that word? That’s real technical stuff, but I have to layer that on top of emotional honesty of what’s going on. So, for me, it’s a buffet and I love that.”

Benard and Harrison also delved into the fact that Gregory he has been sober for 36 years. Harrison opened about how addiction changed his personality at a time when his career was riding high: “If I was the kind of person who would be regretful, then I would say that during my prime, I was busy using all my acting skills to disguise my addiction instead of building my career. ”

As his fame rose, Harrison also started his own production company. He admitted to Benard, that at the time, he was barely getting through jobs and projects: “I could act, but I wasn’t doing as good as I should have been doing. I was just persevering … pouring massive amounts of energy into enduring my addiction … not into the creative artist that I was inspired to be. And then I found my way back.” At one point, Harrison sought help at the renowned Betty Ford Center. Gregory shared that he had to hit rock bottom, in order to build himself back up again.

At the conclusion of the episode, Maurice asked Gregory how he enjoyed being part of the cast of the defunct CBS primetime soap, Falcon Crest, to which Harrison said he loved playing the role of Michael Sharp back in 1990. He compared that character to the likes of Port Charles’ Sonny Corinthos.

Check out Maurice and Gregory’s conversation below.
