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.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
