Nope its out this week. Then the battle over Ben begins

Maybe its Victor Cassidine funding the Jeromes…not Madelyn or we’ll have two cops, Dante and Nathan, with a parent who is head of the mob! Im still hoping the twist is Maxi is really Bens mother…there could have been an egg switch and Britt has carried Maxis son and Dante is still the father…crazy maybe but dont forget Ron C. is writing this show…LOL!!!

Well I lost faith in RC’s ability to surprise us when he wrote the lame ending to the who killed Connie story— that was such a let down that I no longer believe any wild crazy scenarios are forthcoming with this one; Ben is Lulu’s and Dante’s end of story- everyone guess it months ago when Britt showed up pregnant, just like everyone knew AJ stood for Ava Jermone when Connie died—it was only us with some imagination that held hope for a real shocker than never came. In my book RC is becoming predictable as every other soap writer out there.

I so agree with you…instead of giving us something totally unexpected to make the show fun and exciting he takes the predictable easy way out…no real shockers!!!

Well, his shockers end up being ludicrously absurd so its hard to say whether that is preferable to lamely predictable. I am so annoyed at the way he has ruined GH. I personally wish ABC would go back twenty, twenty-five or thirty years and just show reruns from that time forward. I bet they would get more viewers that way.

I think it could be Silas’s mother-in-law back rolling JEROME’S . That’s why they aren’t looking at Ava as he person of interest !

I kind of like Britt now…
Can’t wait to see this unravel!
Who is Julian working with? I wonder if it’s Jerry… Again… At this point maybe it’s too obvious to be Rick.

Shay

While the indications may seem to point to Jerry, it sounds as though this person is going to be more of a surprise….don’t forget Mr. Jacks already shared a brief scene with Ava and Julian last year when he fell from the roof of the MetroCourt and they rescued him and aided in his escape. If Jerry were bankrolling the Jeromes as partners in crime, wouldn’t it have been more obvious then? Their relationship was not clarified, but they definitely knew each other. Ava was there and seemed in on whatever link they had…..the other day, Julian appeared intent on keeping his benefactor a secret from his sister…..which leads me to suspect it’s someone else. Not buying that it’s Rick either. Maybe “Bill Eckert?”

I am so sick and tired of Brit getting away with her deceitful ways and her continued lies. It is time for her to pay a price for all she’s done. and it is time for Nikolas to get a grip and walk away from this lying Britch!! Can we wrap up this story line like NOW !!!

This story could have been much more interesting if it hadn’t been so obvious from the onset. Another wasted story opportunity while the audience has figured out the truth for a year or so! Ho Hum!

This is the most ridiculous storyline, that has gone on for far too long. I actually like “The Britch.” Great actress. Love her scenes with “Muttah.” Dante and Lulu bore me to tears now, now that Julie Marie Berman is gone. Was never a huge Lante fan; Dante is written as a keystone cop with an ego. Not sure he’s ever solved a case. Anyhoo, Lante was bearable with Julie Marie Berman. Not so much now. Love seeing Nik more. Tyler Christopher is so handsome. Great actor, too! Love having the Cassadines back!

I agree with this post…ridic storyline…yes…Dante and Lulu should have had an investigation into why their embryos were destroyed. I love Britt and Dr O. Dante and Lulu WERE my favs when JMB was there…loved them so much and I still miss them. I would rather see Dante move on without this version of Lulu. I love Nik too….he is great with so many including Britt and Liz.

I think the big twist is that Luke is going to rape Kiki.

Just like he did Laura at the disco…hope she doesnt get preggers…ugh!!!

The story has been spun out for so long that viewers really don’t care any more. Let Lulu and Dante have their child so they can fade into the background. There are other stories to be told.
Maxie is coming back — will she have her daughter with her?

Sonny is going to go through meltdown number 153, or something close to that. If he were to land in Miscavige and forgotten by all concerned, it wouldn’t bother me one little bit. Maybe Carly and Franco can share a padded cell with him.

What is up with Luke? Good story potential there.

Obrect’s sudden concern for her daughter is out of character. What is she up to?

I’d love to see Drake Hogestyn come to GH as a vigilante friend of Monica’s who dismantles both the Corinthos’ and the Jeromes’ power base — and does it with extreme prejudice. Monica has suffered greatly at the hands of Sonny and the Jeromes. It’s about time she got some payback.

When is Patrick going to grow up?

Where is Jerry Jax? He can’t be finished?

What is Scot Baldwin up to, besides being incompetent as a prosecutor? Where is his daughter(s)? Kevin needs more story. Get him away from Lucy. She is just too zany these days.

Where are Tracy’s sons?

Is Lucas going to remain in Port Charles? Give him a story more impressive than being a gay third wheel.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I think Jerry is wearing a Luke mask…Tracys son Ned is returning…where is Bobbi? If Drake was on the show(he is back on Days) id like him to play Jeff Webber…

I hope the truth comes out …………. this storyline as been dragging on way to long. I can’t stay Britt! As for the surprise I have no clue! Cheers!

Christy

can’t wait for the stuff to hit the fan… the fur to fly… and is Britt really the bio daughter of Fiason and Obrecht? Always wondered if Leisel (?) did the same thing trying to keep Faison.

Shay
Shay

Me too! Liesl’s reaction to Victor Cassadine’s initial appearance seemed suspiciously tense, like she had something to hide, perhaps her daughter’s true paternity? Normally, this lady is usually so cool, calm and collected, yet she was truly unhinged when she encountered him that first day at Wyndemere. But then again, if Britt is actually related to Nik, wouldn’t Dr. O. have been opposed to her upcoming marriage? Hmmmm…..

Christy
Christy

she seemed scared of him, to me. Which is odd, since he seemed like a nice Cassadine, not obviously evil like Helena I mean. So wonder if he’ll be around any more? I figure the egg he gave to Spencer was a bug for Robin’s house. Was hoping Patrick would have found it when he broke the other day…. otherwise the bug is now hiding in Kelly’s diner! ha!

Shay
Shay

Don’t let Victor fool you because he is so charming and debonair….he is still a bad one, just not quite as evil as his brothers, Helena and crazy nephew(s.) But he has always been my favorite Cassadine, and from what I have read, there is a good possibility that he will return….I certainly hope so! I think he has a lot more going on in Port Charles than meets the eye! Never considered a bugged Faberge’ egg angle, but that would have been a clever idea!

Veronica

If they bring back those stupid masks, then the nickname ReRon for the head writer really is appropriate.

Carly

I can’t wait!!

I don’t want Britt to have the baby either!

David

I want them to give us a scene with Leslie Charleson and Donna Mills. Something like
MONICA: You remind me of my sister. She was bich just like YOU are!
I actually watched an old LOVE IS A MANY SPLENDORED THING scee on You Tube. Amazing to see the both so young!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I posted that a few times about Donna and Leslie but i want them to play estranged sisters on the show who havent talked to each other in years because Maddie stole Ninas father from Monica which couldve happened before Monica was involved with the Webber brothers and before she moved to Port Charles. It would be sort of a nod to their old soap where they played sisters in love with the same man played by David Bernie…Leslie and David use to date in real life!!!

Lia
Lia

That’s too bad, because I love Nik and Britta, but I can see now that they’re going to destroy them to reunite him with Liz. Well, sorry but I will never like the two people who broke Lucky’s heart in such a cruel manner.

As for Lulu, I’ve never liked her, hated the way she treated Maxie over baby Georgie, and do not want her to have a baby. Ben belongs with Britt, but having him be Lulu is all a part of destroying Nikitta I suppose.

Everyone wants Britt to pay for what she has done, well tell me who on this show ever pays for what they have done. Sonny shoots people in cold blood all the time. he is standing right in front of them and they live Dante, AJ . No wonder he thinks Shawn is a great killer for hire. Two peas in a pod. I have changed my mind and I like Britt. I also like Lulu, Dante the perjurer not so much. . I won’t bother to watch this .I don’t care . Will Scummy shoot Britt? Maybe Faison can return and show scummy how its done. he can kill Sonny. The surprise party crasher is either Ned or Sonny .sonny is the only one who would show up where he is not wanted. Look what he did at Robin’s funeral !I will read about it after it happens.maybe.

I am trying to find out where I can get the dress that Lulu was wearing at the engagement party. The black and white.

General Hospital

GH’s Coby Ryan McLaughlin Talks: Shiloh’s ‘Dawn Of Day’ Followers, Playing A Cult Leader, And His Co-Stars

Ever since the arrival in Port Charles of the mysterious “David Henry Archer” (Hank) now better known now as “Shiloh” (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), the minds of several members of the community have been revealed to, or have fallen under his spell.

For Shiloh is the cult leader of the group “Dawn of Day”.  He wields his manipulative skills to entrap unsuspecting people in his quest for power and control.   And make no mistake about it … he certainly has a target for Sam (Kelly Monaco), and an ax to grind with her.   For in her past, “the con-artist” Sam apparently swindled Shiloh’s father leaving him with next to nothing.  In addition to that, it has been noted, that Shiloh shared combat time in Afghanistan with Drew Cain (Billy Miller), before changing his name and coming to the town, where says he owes Drew for saving his life.

In story, one of his most loyal followers, Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) was to be initiated in the inner-circle of the cult, and after drinking from the cup as part of the ritual which drugged her, she was saved by Jason (Steve Burton ) who got her out of the “Dawn of Day” house and to a secret location, leaving Shiloh infuriated and needing to cover his tracks.  As the story has played out, we learn that Brad (Parry Shen) has also been bitten by the “Dawn of Day” bug and believes in Shiloh’s musing.  So much so that he wiped the evidence from the cup Krisina drank out of that Jason provided to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) for testing in the hospital.  The GH audience has also learned that Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) was one of Shiloh’s favorite former members of the cult.  She has revealed she had a child with the guy (the baby she thinks is being raised by Brad) and needs to make sure he never finds out.  But, does Shiloh secretly know?

When we last saw Shiloh on Thursday’s episode of GH, he went into the files of the “Dawn of Day” followers and found Kristina’s.  He opened it, and we finally learn her “pledge” – a deep rooted secret from her past that one must share as part of the journey with the cult.  It revealed, that Shiloh knows that Kristina was abused by her former boyfriend Kiefer and that her mother, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) ran him down and killed him with her car.  Kristina knows about it first-hand, because she saw it happen as she was in the car with Alexis.  What will Shiloh eventually do with this Intel?

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Coby Ryan McLaughlin, who has been the catalyst for much of the latest trouble brewing on-screen on GH about: the complexities of playing such a dynamic, and yet terrifying character, what has it been like mixing it up with the stellar cast of the ABC daytime drama series, and what he thinks Shiloh’s next move might be.  Here’s what Coby had to say about all and more!

What do you think about the reaction of the GH audience to Shiloh?  Is it what you expected?

COBY:  I’ve never really played a bad guy like this.  It’s interesting playing a villain because they love to hate you.  I’ll go on Instagram every now and then and throw elbows at the fans.  It’s really a trip.  The thing I like about this guy is that he’s not completely diabolical.  There are other things going on with this guy; he has other agendas as well.  It’s interesting seeing people react to what it is that I am doing while I have a storyline that is playing out.

Courtesy/ABC

It’s is a bit of a trip as you say; because you have to, in many ways, be subtle in the manipulation as a cult leader would do.  Did you do any research on cult leaders before stepping into Shiloh’s shoes?

COBY:  I didn’t do much when I initially got the part, because I actually know some people like this.  I think as actors, one of the most interesting parts of our jobs is that we just get to sit back and observe things about people’s behaviors.  There are certain people who I have come across where my “Spidey senses” start tingling, and you think, “Well, I’m not going to get involved with this person, but what a fascinating individual.  This behavior is so fascinating.”  However, once I started this gig, yes, I did do research.   I’ll tell you, the one thing that a lot of these guys have in common is that they are extraordinarily exuberant.  They have just this energy about them, and they are seemingly humble.  They have these grandiose visions and these delusions of grandeur, but they do it in a way where you’re like, “Huh.  That almost seems kind of normal.”  In order to get a large number of people to follow you, you’ve got to be charismatic, you’ve got to be saying something that people really tap into and want to hear.  The behavior and psychology behind it are really interesting.  I watched this one documentary and these people literally had no idea … until they did.  They literally had no idea that they were in a cult until they woke up, and they were like, “Holy s**t.  This isn’t right.  This doesn’t feel right.”   Shiloh is an interesting role to play, and it’s written so straight down the line that I really don’t have to push anything, because the guy is written as what he is.   It’s really cool to be able to find all of the little things in that character, so I try to make him a whole bunch of different things to different people.

Did you know from the beginning that Shiloh would turn out to be this cult leader in the “Dawn of Day” storyline?  Who did you screen-test with that landed you the part?

COBY:  No, I didn’t know what he was going to be in the beginning.  I knew that he had an agenda, and when Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) told me that he was going to be a cult leader, I was like, “Oh, okay.  I know what I want to do.”   I have always had the opinion that cult leaders don’t come off bad… they’ve got to be likable.  You have to be able to relate to them in a way.  You have to be able to look at them and be like, “Ah well, maybe in certain circumstances what this guy is doing is okay.”  You have to be able to almost justify some of the behavior until you can’t anymore.  I screen tested with Laura Wright (Carly), and she is really fantastic.  We sit in the makeup chair and shoot the breeze all the time.

Courtesy/ABC

So, is Shiloh infatuated with Sam?   What does he ultimately want from her?

COBY:  Yes, but he wants a lot. (Laughs) There’s a lot of backstory to him and what really brought him to Port Charles.  Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) and I have conversations all of the time about what this guy really is, and what his ultimate goals are, and that may change.  I think that Shiloh is a guy who has come to find his power, and the more powerful he gets, the more he wants.   You know, I’ve become a fan of General Hospital now.  I never watched the show before I got this gig.  I was a Days of our Lives guy years ago.  Don’t tell anybody. (Laughs).

Okay… we will not tell. (Laughs) Ah, sorry!  That’s got to be in the interview! (Laughs)

COBY:  All of  sudden, I will get a message from HR saying, “You’ve been great, but…” (Laughs)   But as to what Shiloh wants with Sam, you know I will read the scripts in advance, and I’ll start creating certain these things for myself in my own mind, such as: “What if he wanted to screw over Sam because of what she did to his father?”  What if it started like that, but all of the sudden he’s coming into some prominence and he wants to go after Sonny’s empire, and what if he wants to run the whole town and screw everybody…?”  I go through this whole thing.  It could literally go anywhere at any time, which is so cool about the soap world.

Without revealing what it is, do you have an idea of what the endgame is for Shiloh, or do you not?

COBY:  No, I don’t.  I think that it changes.  This is a really malleable medium, I’m coming to discover.  I think that nothing is set in stone.  I ultimately know what I want… just because I ultimately think that the foundation of the whole thing is rooted deep within this individual’s character: his emotional makeup, and how he was treated.  There is a lot of revenge going on with this guy, but there is a lot more than that.  He’s not just motivated by revenge.

Courtesy/ABC

Something had to have happened to him, of course, because you know how it works in soap operas!?  If you’re completely evil or bad, and even if you do horrendous things, and they want to keep you on the show, they have to find a way to humanize the character.  Otherwise, you’re there to cause trouble for a time, and you’re killed-off.  Shiloh’s tentacles seem more far-reaching then viewers first suspected.  He has this thing for Willow, who used to be in the cult, and now he’s got Brad under this thumb. What did you think about how much Shiloh is intertwined with and affecting the Port Charles canvas right now?

COBY:  I think that he is an apex predator.  I think that he sees certain people, and he knows how to utilize them for what he wants.  It’s kind of like a chess game.  He knows where Brad is.  He’s always wanted Willow, because it’s the one that got away, so there are certain things he uses as a means to an end, and there are certain things that I think he wants just for himself.  I think the relationships that he creates with this “higher-ups” in the town are because he knows he can utilize them, and there are some personal relationships that he keeps personal.  Shiloh has his own reasons for doing what he does, especially with Willow.  I think he was grooming her to be something.  Just the fact that she left him … really bothers him.

Photo: ABC

He doesn’t know that Willow had his child, or does he … hmmm? 

COBY:  No, not as far as we know.

If he was to know, what do you think he would do?

COBY:  Well …  you’re just going to have to watch and find out.

So, when you found out that there was this major initiation going on which included: the drugging of Kristina, the huge payment she made to be in Shiloh’s inner-circle, and how he was preying on her vulnerability, were you like, “Oh my, God! They’re really going all the way with this cult thing?”

COBY:  No.  We kind of alluded to it, and it has to go all the way.   I wasn’t surprised when I read that in the script.  This is this guy’s MO.  He gets what he wants.

Courtesy/ABC

Shiloh’s s really upset that Kristina is missing and has figured that Jason kidnapped her.  He wants her back in the fold, correct?

COBY:  He does want her back, but he wants her back for a variety of reasons … and not just the fact that she reminds him of Willow.  That’s part of it, but I personally believe that he wants her back, because as I mentioned earlier it’s all about chess pieces for him.  He sets up the prominent people in his organization, so he can set them up to expand his means and to expand his agenda … to motivate his agenda, because there is a bigger picture to all of this.  Kristina is a Corinthos and she is part of the most powerful family in Port Charles, so there is that as well.  He wants to be able to have that power hold over that towns that he is in.

Many in the audience are wondering if Shiloh having sex with Kristina was a key part of his plan.  Is that part of his ritual?  Having sex with women upon initiation into his “inner circle”… or is that a grey area?

COBY:  Here is the thing, everything is consensual with him … that’s where his charm comes into play, that’s where sense of power comes into play.  So, with these women, nothing is forced.  There is not coercion …  at all!   So, yes, its alluded that he sleeps with them, but we don’t necessarily know if that is true for all of them … or…. if it is just for the ones that he takes a liking to.   The other thing we know; is that this guy is also a megalomaniac, so it’s also an exertion of power as well.  What I tried to do with it was not make it so completely overt.   He is a bit of a jerk, but I don’t want it to overstep that boundary of being tasteless.  I think you can go too far with it, so that is one of the reasons that we alluded to the fact that it was always consensual, and people what to be with him for one reason, or another.

Courtesy/ABC

That’s why there was an important conversation written into the script with Jason, Sam, and Michael (Chad Duell) about how there is no way to nail Shiloh for a crime because he is so cagey with every move he makes.

COBY:  Yeah, you could say cagey, I say smart.

Now, Jason is his target.  Would you say there are even more underlying reasons that the obvious of why he dislikes Jason so much? Does he really have an axe to grind with him?

COBY:  I think he likes messing with people, and I think if he is unable to exert his power, or his will, or his control, over somebody, it really annoys him.  The stuff with Steve Burton is rather fun!  Shiloh can’t manipulate Jason like he can manipulate these girls, or the way he manipulates Brad, because Jason just operates on a whole different level.  I think that Shiloh finds it fascinating that he can’t get to him.   Shiloh also wants to get him out of the way, because he can’t out-muscle him.  Even if I could, the writers wouldn’t allow it. (Laughs) So, that’s never going to happen.  As Shiloh, I have to out-think him, because I want him out of the picture.   Shiloh sees Jason as an obstacle and he wants him out of the way, and he will do it by any means necessary, via him or with his kids… anyway that he can, because he can’t get at him on his level, because the playing field isn’t equal.

Courtesy/ABC

What about Shiloh’s relationship with Drew (Billy Miller)?  What does he truly feel about him? 

COBY:  I have this conversation with Frank Valentini all the time.  I think the relationship I have with Drew might be the only true relationship I have with anybody.  I think that Drew really did what Shiloh said that he did.  I think Drew really saved his life, and he does really want to pay that debt back.  I think therein really lies the contradiction with this guy.  It makes it difficult for him to operate.  I think he is conflicted on some levels because he is one guy to Drew, and he is a different guy to everybody else.  I think the way Shiloh is with Drew is real.  In his past, I think that Shiloh was completely fatalistic and reckless and didn’t care if he lived or died, and Drew did save his life, and he gave him a purpose.  However, I also think that he is such a damaged individual.  He needs that feeling of safety by exuding his power and control over others.  The writers have alluded to the fact that he has this other life, and that he was a broken individual, and turned his life around and came back from the brink of dying, of killing myself, of not caring.  So, with Drew, I don’t want to manipulate him.  I don’t want to use him.  I am truly just grateful for the fact that he allowed me another chance at life.  I love working with Billy, because that’s when I get to be human.  I’m not trying to gaslight him.  I’m not trying to get something from him – well, I’ll take that back, because I am trying to get something from him.  I’m just not trying to do it in a way that I go about it with the other characters.  There is a huge amount of respect between the two of us.

Unfortunately, Drew doesn’t remember anything about their past, which puts “pause” in believing Shiloh’s war stories.

COBY:  Yet.  (Laughs). Well, we’ve been alluding to the fact of, “What if he did this? What if he went back into his memories?  What if he were able to remember?  There are a lot of “What if’s …”  So, they keep a lot of balls in the air with this relationship.

What has it been like working with Lexi Ainsworth in this story, because she has been the main character so far drawn into the cult? 

COBY:  She’s great.  I love Lexi.  She is so easy, fun, and safe, and just a really nice person.  We sit and chat all of the time and talk about what it is that we want from each other in the scene and how it’s going to work.   Everyone is great.   Kaetlyn MacMullan is so much fun as well as Willow.  As an actor, it’s really fun when you get people who really want to play and want to go.

And, what are your thoughts on working with GH favorite, Kelly Monaco, who is key in your storyline?

COBY:  Kelly is rad.  We talk about being able to “play jazz” all of the time, which means being able to go into a scene and just riff and have a good time, because there is so much dialog that you have to learn.  I mean, that dialogue is nuts, and sometimes you forget halfway through a page-long monologue when you are at 27 pages in.  That’s when it’s wonderful to have a really good dance partner who can pick you up.  There are times where I get so off script, and I’m like, “Holy s**t!  Where am I going with this?” (Laughs) I have got really good people like Lexi, Katelyn, or Kelly who have my back and that just makes it fun.

Courtesy/ABC

Some actors like to watch back their work, while others don’t.  Do you check out your performances on GH?

COBY:  Yeah.  Somebody on Instagram, this wonderful fan, will take all of the Shiloh’s scenes and post them!  Shockingly, I don’t own a television, so I don’t watch the show that way.

Do you make changes or adjustments once you see your work?

COBY:  Not really.  I made a decision to keep it real low-key with this, and just try to play everything real.   The other thing is I had never done anything like this before in my career.  I was so intimated by this whole thing, that it was like, “Alright man.  Just get in and listen.  Listen to what your scene partners are saying to you.”  In my approach, I am trying to be as still as I can possibly be and let whatever that person is saying motivate my responses and my actions.  If I watch my work, I’m like, “Yeah, that makes sense to me; I like that.  That’s something that this individual would do.”  Shiloh controls every situation that he is in, and even when he is introduced to new characters, he doesn’t wait to be introduced, he’ll just walk up and say, “Hi, I’m Shiloh!  What’s new with you?  How’s it going?” (Laughs) He kind of disarms them in every scene he is in.

Soap fans first saw you on The Young and the Restless in your stint as Andrew working alongside Eileen Davidson (Ashley).  How was that experience for you?

COBY:  Eileen was unreal.  She was really cool, because none of this phased her.  She had been doing daytime so long that it was just a thing to her.  I’d sit there and read my scripts over and over and over again, but she just knew how to do it.  It was so easy for her, that it made it easy for me.

In a broad stroke, what would you tells the fans to look forward to with Shiloh?

COBY:  Well, Shiloh is going to continue his agenda.  He is going to have to go about it in a different way.  There are things going down right now (and I won’t spoil it) that are going to change the way he operates, and he is going to have to get what he wants in a different way.  Some of the people who you would have thought that he trusted, have turned against him.  It just all makes it more fun for him because this is a huge game.  Even the stuff with Sam, you may think that you know where it is going, but it may not be.  So, as much as he is enamored by Sam, he has an agenda with her.

So, what do you think will be Shiloh’s next move?  Will he blackmail Alexis to get Kristina back at “Dawn of Day”? What is his plan for Sam? Is Shiloh connected to a key family in Port Charles, but it has yet to be revealed? Who else do you think might wind up in the cult? Finally, are you enjoying Coby’s performance on GH?

The short stars the one and only Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller, GH) in the role of Poppy Sinclaire, a jaded ex-actress whose past comes back to haunt her when a young up and comer encourages her to publicly share her story of Hollywood abuse.

Hennesy’s co-stars include: Gwen Hillier who now is in front of the camera after working as a casting associate at GH.  Gwen has appeared on Transparent and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and the other part of this trio is Mackenzie Breeden.

During its world premiere of She & Her (March 30th at the Harmony Gold Theatre in Hollywood) The Young and the Restless’ Brytni Sarpy (Elena) and Kate Linder (Esther) were on hand to lend their support; as was former GH star, Chloe Lanier (Ex-Nelle).  (Hapke is pictured below flanked by Lanier and Sarpy).
