The residents of Port Charles came together this past weekend with their adoring and passionate fans from all over the world to celebrate the 50th anniversary of General Hospital, with a stellar line-up  of separate cast member events, the Kickoff reception on Thursday, the Main Cast Luncheon on Saturday, and the blast from the past, Past Cast Stars reunion event on Sunday.

Many of your favorites showed up for the main event on Saturday including: Jason Thompson, Blake Gibbons, Bradford Anderson, Brandon Barash, Kirsten Storms, Teresa Castillo, Kelly Thiebaud, Parry Shen, Bryan Craig, Chad Duell, Kristen Alderson, Drew Cheetwood, Emma Samms, Kathleen Gati, Jimmy Deshler, Haley Pullos, John J. York, Lynn Herring, Michael Easton, Rebecca Herbst, Robin Mattson, Samantha Logan, Kin Shriner, Lisa LoCicero, Tequan Richmond, Laura Wright and more!

After the arrivals of the cast, General Hospital fans were delighted to see the  contingent from the ABC soap as they were announced one by one to their screaming fans, and then took part in a fun Q&A hosted once again this year by John. J. York with an assist by Bradford Anderson. Anderson roamed around the room to get fans to chime in on their thoughts and ask questions of their favorite stars.

A late, yet great, arrival to the proceedings was General Hospital executive producer, Frank Valentini who joined the cast on stage and made a very special ‘thank you’ on behalf of everyone for the audiences continued support of GH, and to relay that there is some exciting moments ahead in the months to come on upcoming episodes.   Following the ending of the Q&A, the stars manned their stations as they took time to sign autographs to an excited line-up of fans.  Upon inspection, we actually think Michael Easton (Silas Clay, pictured here) wins the award for longest line!

Now after the jump, view just some of the images from the GH Main Event arrivals.  Remember to view the gallery you can either view as a slideshow, or to go to the next group of images hit the NEXT GROUP icon to the left of the + sign! Let us know what you favorite part of GHFCW 2013 was if you attended? And if you were not able to attend,  who would you most want to meet in person  up close and personal?

I’d never been to a fan event before and was blown away by my first GHFCW. I met so many of the actors, Frank Valentini, and some amazing fellow fans. When lines were short, I got to have actual conversations with some of them, Parry Shen you rock!! The actors could not have been nicer, even at the events that went into the wee hours (Jason Thompson and Dominic Zamprogna stayed until almost 2am to make sure the last of us in line at their individual event got to meet them and still were smiling and thanked us for coming;… Read more »

That’s interesting…I was continually reading on twitter that John Reilly (aka Sean Donely) had the longest line!

I think I read that John Reilly may have had the longest line at the past cast fan event.

That you for posting the pictures and confirming the longest line issue. It really doesn’t matter to me because I would still like Michael Easton if he had the shortest line but some hateful fans are always tweeting the same nonsense that no one wants Michael Easton on the show simply because they don’t like him. Glad to know that alot of the fans were happy he was there. Granted they don’t represent all of GH fans but they do represent a sampling. If a large percentage of all of the GH fans at the fan club weekend are his… Read more »

I am in love with Michael Easton and have been for years. I know what you mean about what the horrible things people are saying. I also love GH no matter what. Frank and Ron are it for me and no I am not related. I have enjoyed watching their talent for many years. Really horrible some of the things that people are saying. I am enjoying the heck out of myself just watching.

Miss seeing one of the best actresses Kimberly McCullough. Patrick needs Robin and JT and Kimberly are amazing together . You cannot manufacture their chemistry. FCW not the same anymore and I want the real GH back not FV cheap version. Everything is so cheap and horrible writers from all soaps that went off the air is not a good thing.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?

Let us know your theories about Elizabeth’s mother upcoming return to Port Charles in the comment section below.
