GENERAL HOSPITAL: Michelle Stafford Delivers Riveting Performance As Nina Confronts A Captive Henrik!

Courtesy/ABC

On Monday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers learned that it was Nina (Michelle Stafford) who gave an assist to none other than Liesl (Kathleen Gati), who are the responsible parties for kidnapping Peter aka Henrik (Wes Ramsey).

It all happens in a cabin in the woods when Peter wakes up screaming, strapped to a bed.  When Nina comes through the door, he is shocked. Nina launches into an emotional tirade of a grieving sister who lost the brother who meant the world to her, and who she always looked up to, and saw as her protector.  She rails on Peter that she wants her brother, Nathan back, and accuses Peter of using her beloved sibling as a human shield. A desperate Peter tries to tell her, that he is nothing like his nefarious father, Cesar Faison, and he really fought hard against that.  Nina doesn’t believe him for a second, and doesn’t like how he tried to insinuate himself into Maxie’s life when she was most vulnerable … pregnant, and grieving the loss of her husband. After not really wanting to hear another word out of Peter’s mouth, Nina reveals that it’s actually someone else that is keeping him hostage there.

In wanders Dr. Obrecht with a hatchet.  (Memories of Misery?)  Now, it looks like Dr. O is going to smash the hatchet into Peter’s head, but she smashes it into the wall behind him instead.  Nina tells her aunt that while Liesl has kidnapped Peter and taking matters into her own hands, it’s only a matter of time before the WSB tracks Peter down.  Nina vows she wants payback as well, but thinks the police should handle it. However, Obrecht disagrees, and decides she should keep Peter locked up, until he confesses to whatever will put him away permanently.  They shake on it. Next, Peter begs Nina not to leave him alone with the “maniac.” However, Nina leaves anyway, as Obrecht gags him.

What touched us most in these scenes, was Michelle Stafford’s portrayal of Nina’s pain, betrayal, and need for retribution for the death of her brother.  Stafford illustrated why she continues to be one of the most noted actresses on the soap with her ability to weave levels and depth of emotion into a performance.

What did you think of Michelle Stafford’s performance?  What did you think of Obrecht and Nina being the people that are holding Peter captive?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Love Michelle – as usual delivers a fantastic performance.
I was a little surprised to see her at the cabin – at least so soon,I figured it would be Liesl and she would bring Nina into the fold eventually.

Michelle Stafford is a very powerful actress.
She doesn’t often get the credit she deserves.
Michelle is indeed one of the best of the best actors and she never fails to bring it home.
When she is given good material she is outstanding.

Michelle has been continuing to turn out powerful performances. First, with James Patrick Stuart and now Wes Ramsey? They’re clearly trying to use her for her strengths, which is nice to finally see happen!

Michelle has been, finally, given the chance to exhibit the talent few can claim.
The lioness is out….a’roar; claws sharpened in the name of her family/brother/cousin.
I hope she runs him though a skewer.

Seems only the praiseworthy posts made it on this thread! With all the serious scenery-chomping that went on by this character, Peter is lucky to still have a roof over his head! #NotImpressed….

Adore Michelle. I know that Michelle/Nina do not have a very popular fan base with the viewers; but, I think she is great. Michelle steals scenes. As much as I hate this storyline and I can’t stand the parking lot hire, I loved Michelle in these scenes.

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

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!
