Courtesy/IMDB

There is a new Taylor Dubois at General Hospital!  Apparently, Samantha Logan is out in the role as Felix’s (Marc Anthony Samuel) sister!

Actress Pepi Sonuga has taken over the role. The Nigerian-born actress will make her debut later this month.

And according to Soap Opera Digest, “Logan is currently shooting Disney’s big-screen adaptation of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, which co-stars Steve Carrell and Jennifer Garner!”

The character of Taylor arrived on the scene in Port Charles back in June.  The character quickly became friends with Britt,  and had sex with TJ, who still was drawn to Molly.

So what do you think of the Taylor recast?  Good idea?  Do you like the character on the canvas, and that Felix has a sister? Comment below!

GH does not need this character. There are so many good characters already that are not being used, why add this person who will be forgotten in a year?

Pepi is gorgeous, and looks like she’s been much more enjoyable in the role of Taylor. However, this character is completely pointless. She should hook up with TJ, and take him and the worthlessness of Shawn off of the canvas immediately. All three can be a happy family off-screen!

Jesus, cut down on the goddamn cap-lock and stick to one damn name. As so what if I am a ATWT fan, at least the show kept to its history and didn’t recycle storylines from other shows the headwriter used to write for. And I didn’t say you were the only one, I said you were ONE of the only ones. And judging from the other caplock addicts, you’re just the same person posting under different names. Get a life, please.

IT IS NICE TO SEE YOU HAVE SOME MUCH TIME ON YOUR HANDS TO POST AND YOU CAN GO BACK IN FORTH WITH A WOMEN I AM REALLY IMPRESSED. YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO POST YOUR OPINION AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU POST. TRY GETTING A JOB AND DO SOMETHING THAT MAKES SENSE INSTEAD OF LOOKING LIKE A COMPLETE FOOL. TRY WATCHING SOME RERUNS OF ATWT SHOWS TO FILL UP YOUR TIME.

Wow. You really must be a lonely, depressed and self-indulged human being. Take your own advice sweetheart, and it’s called Caps Lock, take it off. I’m not the one yelling at someone over the internet over a sub-par actress that was only booked for a summer gig. My time is well spent in this world, it’s yours that is not. Have a whatever kind of life you live, make something of yourself other than what you are right now. =)

A forgettable character the show doesnt need…why cant the show more Monica…why was A.J.s court scenes written so stupid: he was disrespectable to the judge by ignoring her to stare at Liz, Micheal talking during court,plus most courthouses dont allow cellphones…RH(Franco) hair color change now he looks so much better and Toddish!!!

Logan was terrific as Taylor, and I really enjoyed her interactions with Britt and TJ. Yet they didn’t develop the character or give her much airtime, so not surprised at all that she left. It was a waste of talent IMO. Not sure about the recast, as she does not have acting experience.

I’M GLAD THAT YOU HAVE RECASTED A NEW TAYLOR. SHE’S A LOVELY YOUNG LADY, BUT, JUST DIDN’T FIT THE PART. HOPEFULLY THE NEW YOUNG LADY WILL FALL RIGHT INTO IT. TIME WILL TELL, EVERYONE NEEDS A CHANCE WITH A NEW CHARACTER OR ONE THAT YOU HAVE TO COMPETE WITH. GIVE THE LADY A CHANCE TO SHOW WHAT SHE’S GOT. IT’S NOT FAIR TO KNOCK HER DOWN BEFORE SHE EVEN STARTS. GOOD LUCK HONEY, WILL BE WATCHING.

I think she is needed to explain the secret that Felix has and why she is able to hold it over his head. I would love if this mean they are building a family of color on the show considering they have not have one in many years.

There is room for all, new and old..
Different stories need different people..
If GH just used the stars the ones that have been with GH for umpteen years the stories would be so stale that there would be mold.

I’m sure Tyler will be trouble for Felix and Britt’s only friend and her partner in crime and not used often..

Anne

So true. Way too many characters and not enough time for the good ones. We need more Anna, Laura, Tracy, Robert. Aren’t they bringing in Sean and his daughter? Where are they?

I thought she was great. Seriously. I know I’m in the minority opinion here, but I thought she would be a good match for Morgan. Moreso of a match than with TJ. And I honestly thought she was a sincere friend to Brittany. I hope her character remains friends with Britt and she continues to put Felix in his place.

Seriously.

Elizabeth

I thought she (Logan) was great too. And I’m a big fan of the vets, but agree they need to keep bringing new blood in. That said however, they DO have too many new characters at this point.

I would have been happy if Logan just did the Disney thing then came back to GH after the cast had been culled a bit.

Whatever happened to bringing in Christina (Lucy and Kevin’s daughter)? Also loved the progress they were making with fleshing out Milo… what happened to that? Seems as though too much has been dropped lately. I agree – too much emphasis on the old vets will put a choke hold on the show .. but wish it wasn’t either/or… either we get continuations of stories from 20 years ago or new stories completely siloed in their own universe away from everything else. Combining vets and newbies is the only way to keep the show healthy AND keep the show moving forward.

JustSaying
Guest

I think they are going to return back to Milo when Lucy’s spa takes off. And notice how I say Lucy and not Laura. I don’t foresee any more development for her character.

But pleeeeeeeease let me be wrong.

IF there was ever a more pointless, useless, grating, annoying character in the history of daytime, I would be hard pressed to name one. This character serves NO purpose…adds nothing of value to the show, and exists solely to waste screen time that could be better spent on some of the hardly seen vets.

Nothing against either actress to play this role, but why do they think we need to see this annoying character? Summer is over. Isn’t it time for her to go home to Mommy and Dadums? PLEASE??? Having not seen her or the other teens on screen for the past few weeks, I was hoping they dropped that storyline. Ugh!

I haven’t missed Taylor ,Rafe, Molly or TJ on GH. I don’t think she needed recast I think they need a new story and new young characters. There are others that could go to like Brad, Felix , Kiki, Ava, Olivia, ,Sabrina and a couple others. The cast is to big and the storylines are bad.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Megadittos to that thought!!!! There is waaaay toooo much deadweight attached to GH right now, and those characters that you mentioned would be a very good place to begin winnowing down the cast. I have nothing against “newbies” if they bring something unique and of import to a plotline, but it seems as if all these random people are just taking up space (Ava, excepted, although I have never taken a shine to her!)… Taylor was such an obnoxious and unnecessary addition, she should have just been sent back to the” rents,” end of story…no one would have much noticed/cared… Read more »

Why the recast? The other actress was adorable and great in the role.

By the way, where’s Duke? They have so dropped the balll with all the old/new couples. Duke and Anna, Luke and Laura, Mac and Felicia…Lucy and Kevin…we barely see any of them. it’s like a tease…they bring you back to the origins of GH and then whisk them away…

I’m not happy to see her go, but I’m glad she moved on to something better. The writers spend their time writing stupid storylines for michael, morgan and kiki (ugh!) I don’t see any chemistry anywhere in that trio. The only enjoyable moments for me are scenes with Felix, Brad, Taylor, Britt, Diane and AJ.

Okay…seriously…what was up with Nikolas? He walks into a room where a pregnant woman is lying on the floor…breathing in agony…with a nurse hovering over her prepared to deliver a baby…and he is all befuddled and confused and says “What’s going on?”. Sabrina’s hilarious retort “We are baking a cake” just made him look even stupider…and even then he didn’t seem to clue in. Were the showrunners trying to make this the stupidest moment EVER in soaps? Because it really is!

It was a dumb scene…i expected Nik to ask’What kind of cake?’ It wouldve been funny had Brad walked in and said something naughty!

haa haa really folks?
How petty can yah get <- rhetorical.. the ''I dont want no one new, people'' goodgawd!
Taylor, Felix's sister is no threat to anyone and she will not be a main character nor be taking the spotlight away from anyone..
She is Simply Felix's sister and she won't interfere in your lives lol
It is small but needed roll for Felix's life/stories, Felix needs connection to someone in his life.

Not a fan of the recast. She has no connection, no spark with TJ, and seems very flat. Logan had it all and I couldn’t wait to see what she was gonna do next. She knows how to be a diva and manipulate, it was in her eyes. She should not be recast, she would be worth waiting for when she is done with Disney.

U have to give the new Taylor a chance yesterday was only the first time she was on there. I have said that a lot of times to. Bu t most of the time when I gave the recast person a chance I usually start to like the new person. But I’ll say not always.

I AGREE WITH YOU TOTALLY THIS GIRL JUST DOES NOT CUT IT AT ALL. LOGAN PLAYED THE PART PERFECT SHE WAS VERY TALENTED. SHE WAS A EXACT FIT FOR THIS CHARACTER.I WILL MISS HER NOT PLAYING THE PART ANYMORE. I WILL JUST FAST FORWARD MY TAPE WHEN SHE COMES ON.

Same way I felt about the new Lulu. Give her a chance. New actress – new beginning for Felix and his sister to come together. Family need one another. If they don’t do something with these two, then kick her off and move on with Felix.

I think it’s great that Felix has a sister. Though at this point she is spoiled and obnoxious, maybe she can be redeemed. Dive into these characters history and really give them a great story. She is holding something over Felix’s head and they need to discuss it and deal with it. Let her be a support to her brother. There doesn’t always have to be negative drama. Let there be some real love shown between the siblings.

Not a fan of the character so far but if she sticks around they’ll tone her down. Does anybody remember the hot mess that Elizabeth Webber was when she hit town lol? Nobody’s been in the role long enough to make the switch matter to me, so no problem for me there.

I’ve watched Gh for over 20 years. I’m not black and I still thank it’s shameful that GH lacks substatianal black cast members. After the days of Simone Hardy and Justus Ward we haven’t really seen any. I enjoyed Ms. Logan, it’s ashame GH couldn’t give her a better storyline. The recast of Taylor is too old and not appealing to the masses. I think GH recast Taylot, again with a younger person and then have her a Rafe start a relationship.. I do hope GH keeps, Shawn, TJ, and Felix around. They are doing a great job. I do… Read more »

Not a good move on GH’s part.They could have looked alot harder for someone better to play her part.She is terrible and boring. They need someone that has a spark like Logan had she played the part perfect. Hopefully they will recast this new actor soon.

Really not liking the new Taylor at all. She seems to be trying way too hard to be like Logan. The new Taylor is flat and dull and doesn’t have the look. GH has made a few bad choices this year and I am disappointed. The new replacement for Taylor is one of them. Killing off Connie is another (especially since it wasn’t the actress’s choice). The new Morgan is another mistake. What a needy, insecure, pathetic character. Give the kid some chapstick already and tell him to stop whining. He’s a Corinthos for crying out loud. I just hope… Read more »

I also forgot to mention that the LuLu recast is terrible too! She’s not believable. I fast forward when she is on. I love Sabrina and Patrick and I love Patrick and Robin, so I am torn as to who I want him to end up with when Robin comes back. Sabrina’s ex-boyfriend Carlos is hot but looks too old to be her former counter part.

Back in September of 2018, William Burton was given the position of SVP and Head Of Daytime, Sports and Syndicated Development/Production for ABC Entertainment.  He had been in charge of the the business operations for General Hospital at a network level, while Dummer continued to handle the creative.  However today, Burton was also let-go.

The exits come as ABC and Hulu have consolidated original content under Craig Erwich, and 20th Television and Touchstone TV under Karey Burke.

The layoffs are believed to have effected 12 staff members mostly at the executive level.

Deadline broke the news and then updated their story later today.

Just who and what department in the new structuring will take over General Hospital remains to be seen.  We will keep you posted once any additional news or announcements are made.

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
