General Hospital Reveal: William deVry's "Derek Wells" is Actually Julian Jerome! What Are Your Thoughts On The Twist?

Courtesy/ABC

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the background and the truth came to light of just who is this mysterious guy, “Derek Wells”, who showed up in Port Charles this week and took over Connie Falconeri’s Crimson!

It all happened when soap favorite and heartthrob, William deVry in key scenes with two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maura West (Ava) was revealed to be none other than Julian Jerome, brother of Ava, and son of Victor Jerome, the crime boss who spread terror though Port Charles in the 80’s and early 90’s!

As many know and was reiterated in the episode, the Jerome clan caused terrible trouble and heartache for Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan)!  Anna even lost her and Duke’s child at their hands!

Fans also learn the gambling connection with the Jerome family and Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig), and that Ava and Julian have a master plan to bring down Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and take back the territory that once belonged to the powerful Jerome family!

Elsewhere, Alexis ((Nancy Lee Grahn) gets hypnotized by Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) to try to recall who Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) father is, so she can help save little Danny! And as she recalls the night she met this handsome stranger, we come to learn that the man she is making out with in a car was named “Julian”!

Quite the story entrance for Mr. deVry!  He is Julian Jerome with a whole agenda to take down the Corinthos Clan and he has no idea he has a daughter, who just happens by the Crimson office at the end of Friday’s episode and comes face-to-face with dad! 

So what do you think of all the groundwork that has been laid to make William deVry’s emergence on General Hospital have plenty of impact? Do you like the idea “Derek Wells” is really Julian Jerome?  Do you see the long term story potential for Anna, Duke,  Sonny, Ava, The Q’s, Alexis, Sam, and more with deVry’s Julian on the canvas? And one more thing, Julian has another child out there!  Do you remember that Lucas Jones  (Bobbie’s adopted son with Tony)  is really the bio-child of Julian too?  Could that come into play here at some point in the future? Let us know your thoughts on the reveal!

I like William Devry But am on the fence about Derek/Julian. I didnt like my intro to the man when he grabbed pregnant Maxi by the arm roughly. I love Maxi she is my favorite GH female character and that move left a bad taste in my mouth. We have to see where this goes but it does look like we have a new bad guy in Port charles who WILL have a big impact on lots of lives.

well it was obvious he was some sort of criminal element as soon as he grabbed Maxie. he’s not supposed to be all warm and fuzzy…and we’re not supposed to, at least at this point, like him or “his intro.”

you should read about the Jeromes and Julian… they’re nasty mobsters. Julian and his sister Olivia kept trying to kill each other… and others! 🙂

Julian was presumed dead. He was in a firefight with “Duke Lavery”. He was actually in the gun fight with Jonathan Paget who was posing as Duke Lavery.

The Jeromes were battling with the McKays, which was Duke Lavery and Duke’s father Angus.
Olivia St. John, Julian’s sister, had a thing for Luke and well, let’s just say she wanted to get rid of Anna so she could have Luke.

The other baddies –
Victor Jerome (deceased) – the original founder of the family
Julian Jerome – Victor’s surviving son and presumably the current mob boss
Olivia Jerome (St. John) (presumably deceased) – Victor’s daughter
Evan Jerome, Sr. (died 1983) – Victor’s son
Dino Antoinelli – Victor’s son with Dimitra Antoinelli, half-brother to Julian, Olivia, Evan Sr., and Ava.
Evan Jerome, Jr. (deceased) – Evan Sr’s son with his wife Veronica.
* Ava Jerome – Victor’s daughter. She may be co-mob boss with Julian. She may or may not be the same person as Olivia.
Jonathan – cousin to the Jeromes

other children of theirs – Lucas Jones – Julian’s son with Cheryl Stansbury; adopted by Tony Jones and Bobbie Spencer.
Sam Morgan – Julian’s daughter.

my bad! that should read that Olivia had a thing for DUKE, not Luke. silly fingers! 🙂

This is an incredible twist and umbrella story that will affect nearly every character on the canvas. The writers are doing a fantastic job of using the entire cast in important and significant ways. Between this story and the inevitable baby-drama that will ensue between Ellie/Spinelli/Maxie/Dante/Lulu/Patrick/Brit, I am hooked on GH like I’ve never been before!

I do have a few questions, though:
1. I remember reading that Julian’s sister was named Olivia. I wonder if Olivia is “Ava” or if “Ava” is simply a newly created sister and character since Olivia is “dead” and since we already have an Olivia on canvas who is of no relation.

2. I would love to learn more of the backstory on Lucas. Who is his birthmother and how did Bobbie come to adopt him. Does Lucas know that he is adopted and does he know that his father is Julian Jerome? The possibilities of Lucas, who came out several years ago, and the current openness toward strong gay male characters on the show has me very excited as well!

I didnt watch during the Jerome era so i liked reading your comments…it helped me know a little more about the Jerome family. Reading Bobbis connection hopefully means she could possibly return for a brief story arc.

Most of your questions are answered on the Lucas Jones Wikipedia page. Just Google “Lucas Jones” and it will come right up. I would copy and paste, but credit where credit is due, and I am not sure if a link would be flagged as spam.

holy crap sam is relatied to lucas, he would be her younger brother!, damn sam hit the family lotto, she’s almost related to the entire cast. oh and to answer one or two of your question, Ava is a younger sister, and cheryl is lucas mother, she was tiffany hill sister, and at some point they thought Robert Scorpio was lucas father. i think lucas does know he’s adopted but i don’t know if he’s aware he’s a jerome. that story never played out.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe Lucas or one of the Jeromes can save Sams baby if not Franco…

Madelaine

From what Tonja Walker (who played Olivia Jerome) was saying on Twitter, she talked to the writers and Olivia is dead dead. So looks like Ava is another sister.

I don’t remember if Lucas knows he’s adopted. I remember when he was a teenager both Maxie and Georgie were drooling over him and each wanted a kiss from him (what is it with this show and kissing cousins?).

Personally I love this story-it’s a great way to tie in the old and the new. And I’m still crossing my fingers that somehow the Jeromes are tied to Faison/Robin/Olbrecht/Jerry Jacks. Any of the Jeromes medical whizzes?

donna

maxie and georgie were not cousins with lucas

Christy
Christy

actually… there are no kissing cousins at all, as Kiki and Michael aren’t related… and Maxie and Georgia just kinda grew up with Lucas around. Maxie had Lucas’ sister’s heart. (Actually, BJ was Tony’s child from a previous marriage and Lucas was adopted.) so as Lucas and the girls got older, well, he was getting kinda cute to them.

Mary

Lucas’ mother was Cheryl Stansbury, Tiffany Hilk’s sister, Cheryl died when Lucas was a baby,.

she left baby lucas for tony and bobbie to raise in her will.she was killed in a car accident. yes he knew he as adopted

Toooooo “Six Degrees of Separation” ( make that one or two…) for my taste!!!! I love the current trend of connecting the present to the best of the past of GH, but I don’t know that this plot fills that bill……the Jerome storyline was not one of the most interesting or intriguing chapters of the show’s history.

Erick

Awesome! My first answer about Olivia/Ava would be “No, Olivia died on screen.” But now we have A.J., Duke, and Julian on the canvas, so that answer doesn’t work. I guess I’d say she isn’t, if for no other reason than there already is another Olivia on the show. 🙂
As I recall, the Lucas’s dad story was dropped pretty quickly when Gloria Monty returned in late 1990. Cheryl was obsessed with Robert and claimed the child was his, and that was the big secret at the time, when will Robert find out that Bobbie’s son is his. Then when Monty took over, she cleaned house, killed off Cheryl, and ended the story by saying Lucas wasn’t Robert’s. The only other option was Julian, but he was dead, Cheryl was dead, and Bobbie kept custody, so the story died.
Pretty sure Lucas knew he was adopted, because Bobbie couldn’t have kids anymore at the time, wasn’t that the deal?
Anyway, really stoked about the return of the Jeromes. I’m gonna conveniently forget that (both Duke and) Julian died on-screen, just because I was so mad that the story ended because they (again) changed producers/writers. Why kill people on-screen all the time? That’s why people make fun of soap operas, convoluted and often stupid story explanations when the actors choose to come back….

I am loving it!!! I have to say I knew most of it was coming… sort of predictable… but still loving it!!! He is a baddie… but maybe he will be a bit reformed before it is over. Loved Thursday and Friday’s show especially because of who was on our screen. I like RH but how nice was it not to have to watch more of him as Franco. We got Anna, Duke, Lucy, Luke, Holly Carly, Sonny, Tracy, Alexis, Sam, Kevin, Ava and Julian… what a great few episodes!!! I may watch them again!!! Love to see Ava and Carly and Tracy do battle. Love that Luke is back! Love Anna and Duke going to Sonny… loved it!!!

Love Devry, he’s quite the talent but he is a only a few years older than Kelly Monaco. He is 45 while she is 38. If we apply reality’s hand here and subtract the nine months of Alexis’s gestation period (who was sixteen at the time of conception) then Julian was about 7 when he impregnated Alexis. That is rather creepy to think about. I realize that time is irrelevant in soap land, however, when age conflicts with a characters’ timeline, there is a problem, and Houston, we have one. But don’t tell Ron this–he can’t handle even the gentlest, most constructive criticism.

aria
aria

um actors don’t play their real age, duhhhhhhhh, everyone knows this!

Mary SF
Mary SF

I think you must know actors do not have to play their own age, but the character age, which on soaps is usually a range rather than a set date. KM is 38, but her character Sam was born in 1980, which would make Sam 33. Alexis had Sam at 16. The man she had the one night stand had to be at least legal drinking age, so lets say he was 21. 21 add 33 years would make Sam’s father 54. If Julien was her father, then back in 88 when Julien first came on the scene he would have been early 30’s, which seems to fit the right age range for the character then and to be Sam’s father. So even if Devry is 45, he is obviously playing a man who is in his early fifties, which isn’t that big of a stretch in the looks department for him to pull it off— I find him playing over fifty more believable than the some of the cast of Glee who were in late twenties playing high school students. But it is call acting for a reason– and if they are good at it, they will convince us they are the character’s age not their own.

Erick

Well Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) and Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) are nine years apart, and DAYS’s Alison Sweeney (Sami) and Chandler Massey (Will) are fourteen years apart, and I’ve never heard people complaining about them….

And John McCook is only 8 years older then Ronn Moss and he played his father for 25 years on Bold & The Beautiful. JM use to joke about it and say from the get go he was told to put grey in his hair.

It is time for Lucas to come back and be in a triangle with Brad and Felix

Shay

For the life of me, I cannot understand the breathless anticipation voiced here for the character of “Lucas.” He was at best, a “back-bencher” role (no pun intended….) in his previous incarnations, and this endless desire to match him up with those two pathetic, stereotypical characters before he even arrives is just beyond irritating! Such constant badgering only serves to give me the fervent desire that when “Lucas” finally does appear he is a conservative, “Log Cabin Republican” type who cannot abide such flamboyance…and that he will be far more invested in his career and family as opposed to all the gossipy, petty and underhanded behavior displayed by Brad and Felix!!!!! Not to worry though…Richard Simmons is on the way…perhaps he can do a “threesome” with the boys!!!!!!!!

Patrick

“breathless anticipation”

Amy

Not interested in the Jerome’s.Ava is boring & so is kiki.

Shay

Absolutely agree with you….Ava the Android has gotten old real fast, and “Kiki” is so not an enduring or endearing character, which is sad for KA….my only hope for her is that once she discovers her true parentage she becomes “Lauren Clay,” has a tasteful makeover and rises above her tawdry family background. Just the current name alone conjures such a tacky, disgraceful image….makes me think of a stripper or hooker!!!! (I realize there are actual socialites with that moniker, but it simply doesn’t apply here…) And being forced to hear Morgan’s constant utterances of it makes it even worse…time for another big change for KA.

I like them and the story is getting very interesting with Julian & being Sam’s dad who could be a life saver for the baby! Ava’s secret will come out that Silas is kiki’s real dad and so on…

Well I don’t know the history since I only began watching last year, but years of soap watching has given me enough experience to know– this is good twist– it brings in some new, with some history– it seems to affect a number of characters– and has long term potential. Also there will be a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing happening with Micheal and Kiki when the truth comes out that she is part of one crime family and Micheal is part of the other. I like the possibilities — can’t wait to see it all unfold in the days to come.

Patrick
Patrick

what really makes this interesting…

if you watched him on AMC… and yes… writing has so much to do with delivery.

but… intelligent actors who have meaty material…makes this all the more intriguing.

plus… he has that it sexual factor, in spades… and we’ve got alluring story… to tell.

jeez… going by posts…. and I do like Ava… she’s captivating… was stunning on ATWT. so.. throw in her brother, Jerome… and… all the historical connections.

finally… this will be good for Alexis… as I always thought she was intelligent…. ie: remember her from Santa Barbara… ? Yikes… she was so good.

alot of good actors to play this stuff out… and I hope this is the resurgeance for GH.

Shay

NLG was so good on “Santa Barbara” because she had “Lane Davies” as her leading man…she has never recaptured the magic that was” Julia and Mason” since…

Wow, the character of Julian Jerome is certainly going to impact just about everyone in Port Charles! Even though I’m not usually big on the mob stories, I like the fact that Julian is not a one-note cartoon kind of bad guy, and that the writers are mining GH’s rich history. So poor Sam is half Cassadine and half Jerome? That’s quite a pedigree! Lol!

ummmm
GH no longer has a mob.. The mobs are long gone.
Sonny and his sidekick are nowhere near being a mob, nor are 2 Jerome’s..

Sonny use to be head of mob that no longer exists.
Now he is simply a tuff guy who holds on to his old ways, and a loner.

Ava and Julian are not a mob either..
This story is about revenge, money, power.

((have people not noticed the mobs are no longer, they are gone?
I have not seen a mob in Port charles for a very long time..
Sonny is not a mob he’s just a use to be mobster without a mob to lead.. LOL ..

Amazing job that Ron has done to create a storyline with so much rich potential. It has deep ties to the past while incorporatung the new characters even deeper into the whole show. It is going to be an incredible fall watching this story develop. I think we are finally getting to see the talent and vision that Frank & Ron have for GH now that the pomp & circumstance of the nurses ball/50th anniversary is over and the push/pull with Prospect Park and the OLTL characters is done. Loving my soap!

Jeff

I haven’t seen any of William deVry’s previous work, although I do remember hearing his name a lot when he was on AMC. I like what I saw from him this past week. Looks like this Julian Jerome/Derek Wells character is gonna be a real bastard, and I love that.

It’s nice to see a new villain on the show. I love all the GH villains from the past, Helena, Faison, Jerry Jacks, and so on, but it’s good to see someone new and fresh. Sure, most of us could see this storyline coming as soon as the Jerome name was re-introduced on the show, but just cause you know something is coming, doesn’t mean that you still can’t enjoy it.

I’m definitely very intrigued to see where things go After a lackluster few months following the Nurses Ball, GH has really been picking it up again over the past few weeks. Which I knew it would, cause every show goes through their slow periods.

Leave it to Cartini to introduce a new character. This freak roughed up a pregnant woman his second day on the air. The misogyynistic violence against women on this show amazaes me!

The show on Friday was excellent. I am so excited for this story to unfold. Maura and William are excellent actors and I am sure with Ron’s excellent writing we are in for quite a ride. This storyline gives so many cast members storyline potential. So who do you think Derek/Julian will romance…Carly…Olivia…or someone else.

su0000
su0000

..
We know it won’t be Connie/Kate..
I think Julian will be a loner/no woman for a long while then sometime down the road he and Alexis will hook-up..
It would not be in Julian’s character, at this point in time, to have a woman in his life..

Shay
Shay

Hate it…..absolutely despise it!!!! Probably mostly due to the “whom” as opposed to the “what.” You have two really unlikeable, despicable and morally-reprehensible usurpers stepping into the major fray of GH: the oft-aforementioned artificial and affected Ava who annoys to no end, and a creep-inducing Julian who totally lacks the leading-man looks and sex-appeal required for such a powerful role…. he is sleaze personified….yuck!!!! I am beyond sick that he is going to be Sam’s Daddy…all the luscious possibilities out there, and we end up with this mess???? The ludicrous storyline is just plain wrong on so many levels….and it looks to be the dominant theme for many, many months to come. I only hope that all the legacy characters will come front and center to save us from this obnoxious duo’s bidding to take over not only PC, but the show, as well….there is only so much of Ava’s scene-stealing strutting and smirking and Julian’s dark demeanor and (foreshadowed) dastardly deeds that one can tolerate. Makes me wish for “RoHo’s” coma to be very short-lived…we are going to need his comic relief pronto!!!!

What a mature suggestion…(I read plenty, thank you very much!) I don’t recall feeling the need to make likewise remarks to those who have been endlessly complaining about Franco and Silas for the past few months, but whatever…..all I was indicating was a real displeasure with the casting choices for these new characters….I don’t find them appealing AT ALL, and that serves to ruin the whole plot. Furthermore, using a moldy old storyline-family that was actually pretty mediocre the first time around simply dampens my enthusiasm for what I had hoped would be a very exciting late summer and autumn of GH drama…and there seems to be enough other people who agree with me, not only here, but on other websites, as well. Just saying…..

Christy

Shay

I go back as far as the early/mid ’80’s heydays….Frank Smith, the Cassadines, etc. Loved those storylines….and my most favorite time was with Frisco Jones. He should definitely be in on the current Luke and Holly caper….his skill set would fit right in!!!! ( Especially since they are rolling out Sean Donely….was never a fan of his!!!!) Loved the heart to heart Luke had with his “English”…we need more moments like that!!!! So much better than the silly, tacky stuff with Lucy and Scotty….Sam was really good today, but I still hate the thought that she was talking with her “father.” Just had much higher hopes for the guy they chose to be her daddy….and as usual, Ava was a sheer nuisance….I just don’t understand why she is so highly valued. Another more talented actress could have made that role interesting and intriguing, instead of just annoying. Oh, and glad to see “FranQ” was conscious…I thought they were going to keep him in a coma for awhile!

TheHugoBoss
TheHugoBoss

Am I the only one who thinks that the reveal was just a little too quick and easy? I don’t think Derek/Julian IS Sam’s father. There must be some other twist to it.
And did I miss something? Did one of the characters mention Lucas? Cause I don’t get why everyone is so concerned with that character when technically Sam stull doesnt even know who her father is…Alexis still doesn’t know who her baby’s father is…No one knows the Jeromes are even for sure back……ect…just seems tobne there’s a bunch of stories currently going on to be worrying about characters and stories that havent been mentioned yet. lol

Lucas is the son of Julian Jerome and Cheryl Stansbury (Tiffany’s sister). He was adopted by Tony & Bobbi.

Been there, done that…..gave up on the hackneyed Bell shows more than a decade ago. GH has remained the only go-to guilty daytime pleasure (on and off) since then….too busy for anything more. Usually I’m drawn back when there is a streak of legacy role appearances, since there are so many great characters from the past…meaning the REAL thing, not the reconstituted ones, like these Jeromes!!!! That’s why I’m so passionate about the storylines and casting choices….I have such fond memories of GH’s grand history.

Li

I thought it was a bit predictable when Alexis mentions the name “Juiian” while hypnotized just as Ava says my brother Juilan and Sam strolls into Crimson…Come on.
I hope that he actually is not Sam’s dad. I am ready for a mob to come back and I wonder how Sonny will deal without Jason (who I still miss terribly!!) The Jeromes will be bringing some interesting stuff for sure! Maybe the Zaccharas will return (Johnny can get out of jail) and it will be a wild ride in PC.
I am ready for Jerry Jacks to come back- he always adds delight and disgust!
I am tired of Danny being sick- poor kid has had a horrible life and he not even 2 years old. I hope GH gets better, I have not been into Morgan, Kiki, Michael, SIlas, Franco, etc. I do like Ava- she is one creepy lady!

I loved Friday’s episode, so many great scenes. Anna and Duke with Sonny, don’t recall if Maurice Benard has ever worked with Ian Buchanan before, but it felt like something special. It’s always a hoot when Tony Geary plays Dr. von Scheemerman, and it was nice to see Emma Samms again. Same for Jon Lindstrom back as Kevin, Scotty and Lucy, and Ava and Julian giving some background on the Jerome family and where they’ve been, and foreshadowing their plans to take down Sonny’s empire.

Great work from all the actors, and a lot of well written scenes. It’s good to see GH starting to pick up again.

Let’s see – Sam is part Cassadine, part Jerome and her son is a Quartermaine who was like a brother to a Corinthos! Sam is now connected to every powerful family in town!

Love WDV as Julian! So looking forward to how this plays out across all families and how this obviously interacts with the Luke / Jerry Jax storyline which brings us back to Robin and Dr. O (who clearly is trying for retribution against Anna for having Faisons heart STILL after all these years)! (side note – loving watching Britt be redeemed!)

Did anyone catch Julian’s chemistry with Connie? Seriously. They should keep her character! It would be a great twist to have nuConnie fall for Sonny’s enemy while Sonny’s with her cousin.

Sigh.

More like “killer chemistry,” make that rage…can just imagine the explosion when she saunters into that office with Kiki’s birth certificate in her hands…..

Kelly Sullivan is uber talent… I definitely caught this.

I thought… how lucky that, Julian’ intro to Port Charles is with Connie. I especially… loved Connie’ scenes with Tracy… when Connie told Tracy about Kiki not being a ‘Q’.

Kelly Sullivan is an amazing actor…. and it’s GH’ downfall to let her go.

She’s mesmerizing… made for Serial.

So far I am loving Derek/Julian. Something about him is fascinating. I love that they are bringing the Jerome’s back and I love how they are doing it. The Jerome’s are connected to multiple story lines right now, it’s so intriguing. I am looking forward to watching it all unfold. The Jerome family has so much history and connections in Port Charles, just imagine all the potential story lines that could come out of this. (Sam is a Cassidine AND a Jerome, can you imagine what they could do with that!)

I am loving this s/l and the fact Derek/Julian is Sam’s father. Those two played off of each other so well today, I just absolutely loved their scenes. I am loving the fact we are going to see some more mob stories also and Julian going up against Sonny which will cause conflict for both Sam/Alexis.

Shocker today on GH!!!!! Luke and Holly looking up who took the money out of Jerry Jaxs account and guess who’s picture comes up Sean Donelly. He’s a blast from the past! Last time I saw Sean Doneely , Tiffany was taking him out of the country to a hospital! Shocker to see his face on the computer! Haven’t seen him in such a long time…WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holly mentioned she visits Robert everyday!

Am loving Will deVry’s portrayal of Derek/Julian. And am enjoying the story and how all the pieces of the puzzle are being put together

Hells to the yes. Laverys v. Jeromes was one of the best stories in GH history. So much emotion there without even adding any new conflict. I actually am quite impressed how the Qs and Sonny & Co. have been woven in as well. But, truthfully, ANYTHING to get more air time for Finola Hughes and Ian Buchanan. They need to be front and center… William deVry and especially Maura West have been great additions. But, this story’s heart is Duke and Anna. That’s why the story took off on Thur & Fri’s episodes. Because the Laverys were involved as well.

William DeVry is the perfect person to play Julian and Sam’s father. Kelly Monaco and William even look alike. I am loving every minute of this story line. I want more of this story line ASAP 🙂

Love the reincarnated Jerome family saga. About time another family rattled the Corinthos clan. What if “Kiki” is really Duke and Anna’s presumed dead child? Wouldn’t that be a twist? Just think of the emerging storyline, in time for Robin’s return.

I love Gh….the storylines are spellbinding.Julian jerome is hot,he feels connected and attracted to Alexis.He figured out he is Sam’s dad,and he is quite emotional about it.Ava scares me more than Julian…Julian was alexis first love,can’t wait to see her reaction,when his identity will be revealed.

General Hospital

GH’s James Patrick Stuart Talks on Valentin’s Downfall and Potential Rise to Power

After all his bravado, machinations and lies to keep the woman he loves, and believing he was the rightful heir to the Cassadine fortune, suddenly it all came crashing down for Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) on recent episodes of General Hospital.

Payback can be a bitch, but for Valentin; who’s past has been fraught with numerous physical and emotional tribulations since his childhood, he now finds himself at the lowest point in his life; losing Nina (Cynthia Watros) who’s now taken up with Jax (Ingo Rademacher), realizing he is the biological son of the evil Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers), and not Mikkos, and having all his best laid plans and misdeeds backfire.  (Remember, he shot and “killed” Nikolas, and set up the ruse that led Sasha to pretend she was Nina’s bio-daughter.)  Now, enter Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), who could very well hold the ticket, to Valentin’s rise to wealth and power all over again.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with James Patrick Stuart to get the lowdown on: those heavy and emotional scenes opposite Constance Towers, working with Cynthia Watros as his newest Nina, if Valentin might really kill Jax the next time he thinks about it, and what about a potential relationship between Anna (Finola Hughes) and Valentin?

Not many can play bad as good as James in this industry.  He does it so effortlessly and still brings out the humanity in the guy that has t-r-o-u-b-l-e written all over him.  Here’s what James had to share about all of Valentin’s recent dramatic moments, a tease of what’s to come, and much more.

Photo: JPI

Valentin’s world has imploded at the moment.  When did you initially find out that he was going to turn out to not be a true Cassadine heir?

JAMES:  Well, there were some clues dropped by Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) back when we did the gallery auction where Helena’s portrait went up in flames.  Frank looked at me and goes, “Hey, Jack Nicholson it up.  Have some fun!  You’re not going to be feeling pretty good for a while.”  (Laughs)  I’m like, “Oh … what are the plans?”  He pulled me aside and goes, “Yeah, you’re going to lose Nina, but you’re going to try to take over ELQ.  That’s when I started to go, “Wait a minute!  That sounds to me like Valentin’s losing his money.”  (Laughs)  With the character of Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) coming back; it’s pretty great.  I think the writing was on the wall there.  I put it out on twitter the other day.  I said, “Look what they’ve done to my boy.”  Somebody chimed in, “They gave him a storyline!” (Laughs)

Who doesn’t love to see you, James Patrick Stuart, play tortured soul?  They audience loves to see you get the opportunity to go to those depths in your performances.

JAMES:  It’s been really interesting for me.  I’ve had a lifetime of playing bad guys because the line was always shorter. (Laughs)  Everybody wants to be Tom Cruise, but the Alan Rickman’s of it all, to me, were what was so interesting.  Early on, you play one dimensional kind of twisting of the mustache, tying a woman to the train tracks.  After a while, you start to watch the truly great actors.  They start to take you on a ride.  If you’re paying attention, you start to feel what it would be like to be that damaged, and that’s why you do it.  Then you start to see the vulnerability. To me, I thought, “This is a great time in my life because I’m ready to do that.” A lot of people say, “I don’t understand.  I feel like that makes no sense. because why would I root for a person who behaves like this?” and that to me, I feel is the greatest compliment of all.

So much happened recently to Valentin in one fell swoop; he overhears Nina telling Ava (Maura West) she kissed Jax, then he envisions shooting Jax and then he is drinking himself into oblivion and he gets a “visit” from Helena!  But … the scenes between Valentin and Helena really summed up the bitter truth for him, wouldn’t you say?

JAMES:  Yes.  In the “Helena” scenes, it all basically is revealed.  It all comes down in a moment where he “sees” her.  I think he realizes with the DNA test; he’s not the person he thought he was, but he certainly had no idea that he had her blood in his veins.  The truly tragic moment of the evening is when it dawns on him that he has a daughter with Helena’s blood in her veins.  Now, he would kill her a thousand times over in that moment.  He can’t do it.  He’s fighting phantoms.  That’s the bottom below the bottom, and things got worse than he ever thought they would get.

Does Valentin have any idea then, who his biological father could be?

JAMES:  I don’t think so.  I don’t believe so.  I know I don’t.  I think once he realizes that Helena is in fact the mother, I think he’d rather just go into oblivion.  I think at that point, he’s out of answers.  Enter Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) …which is wonderful because I think the world of Nancy, and she saves the day.   Alexis basically talks him out of hurting himself, telling him to count his blessings that he is not a Cassadine, etc, which was a really sweet moment.

I assume, when you have this kind of material to play, it must be exhausting, but exhilarating at the same time?

JAMES:  I think that’s exactly right.  As an actor, I think you want to do this stuff.  Maura West and I compare notes all the time.  I think it can be kind of emotionally draining.  You do feel it, and I felt it when I had spent a lot of time with Nina and Valentin, and when the actresses changed, and we brought Cynthia Watros in.  I worked twice as hard to make sure that Cynthia’s landing was as easy as possible, and I really grew attached to the Nina and Valentin connection.  So, when Jax steps in, Cynthia’s love life means nothing to me, I don’t care about that, but Nina’s love life means a lot to me!  And it bums me out, and I don’t know that I’ll actually be watching any future love scenes between them as much as I love them both!  I have a deep attachment to the Valentin connection to Nina.  So, the lines get burred because we just play these characters so long.

What was it like sharing those tough scenes with Constance? No one can play icy, evil villainess like her … and yet in real life, she is such a gracious and kind-hearted woman.

JAMES:  In real life, Constance is such a sweetheart, and she’s so grateful to be there.  She was so ready to work, and rehearse, and play, and find the stuff, and she was great.  I’d been in scenes with her before.  Last time, we didn’t really talk to each other.  I was with the hump.  I was being Valentin pre-surgery.  It was some sort of moment in a graveyard, but this time we actually got to interact with each other.

You look at Valentin, and he’s not had the greatest life.  Do you bring his entire back-story into your performance; such as when he was deformed with the hump and how he had to literally reconstruct his life both in the physical and in emotional ways for many years?

JAMES:  Absolutely.  It’s the brokenness that he’s making choices from.  He was never truly and authentic person to begin with which is why his love fell apart.  He’s always been faking.  He’s always been putting on a show.  That’s not sustainable in matters of the heart.  It was unbelievably easy for Jax to swoop in, because it was inevitable that things were going to fall apart.  Of course, that anger and that brokenness were what lead him to want to kill Jax.  There’s no question.  He was prepared to do that.  If you look in the eyes in the fantasy sequence in the shooting, he just wanted to watch him die.  He wanted to watch the light go out in Jax’s eyes.  He was so furious … and even more tragic is … that was all he could think of, and somehow, he realized in that moment that wouldn’t work, because he’d lose his daughter.

Anna and Finn (Michael Easton) just kind of busted up.  Do you think Anna and Valentin will hookup? There is a connection and a history between the two of them whenever they seem to be in proximity of one another.

JAMES:  Personally, I’m waiting for that.  I hope so!  There is a finesse and elegance to that woman, and not only that, there is an effortless to the connection between Valentin and Anna, if one can say that about one’s own coupling.  I love to look at it!  I think we go together like a wink and a smile.  I just find that chemistry really great.  I think that’s mostly Finola, though.  She can probably have chemistry with most anything.

Valentin was going to leave Port Charles with Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez), after Nikolas revealed all and the fallout began.  Interestingly enough, it was Anna who came to Valentin’s side and tried to talk him down from fleeing with his daughter and showed such compassion for him!

JAMES:  Wasn’t that great?  She was the one who got him.  She was the one who was able to calm the beast.  There was no one else he would have listened to.  In the moment in the police station, after Charlotte had been kidnapped, and there is that moment where Anna has that bruise, I thought it was such a tender moment.  I just said, “If I kiss my finger and touch your wound?” and she’s like, “Do it.”  It was just this moment where we had been bitter rivals and enemies for so long, but he just adores her so much it’s undeniable that he sees her wounded and wants to make it better.  It’s floating out there waiting to be done.  I know that everybody knows it.  It’s just a matter of what the right away to go about in the writing would be.

So, you’ve worked opposite two acting dynamos in the role of Nina – Michelle Stafford and now, Cynthia Watros.  Was the transition difficult for you when Cynthia came to GH?

JAMES:  It wasn’t.  It was scary because Michelle Stafford wasn’t just one in a million, I mean, she is one of a kind.  The last thing in the world that I would ever want to consider doing myself was recast that actress.  So, my deal was (and I’ve said this to Cynthia) I said, “I have no control over this.  All I can do is make the landing as easy as possible for Cynthia.”  We did a lot of photoshoots together, and I had flowers waiting for her, and I did everything possible to make sure that she knew that she had a friend and that she had somebody that was going to make it as easy as possible.  It was rough because a lot of the trolls on social media were just awful to her… just brutal, and she goes, “I have thick skin.  I can take it,” and then a week later, she goes, “I’ve closed all my social media accounts!”  (Laughs)  It’s been fun to watch those guys turn around and go, “You have a really special person.”  That wedding stuff was just incredible!  She came so prepared and she knocked it out of the park.  Cynthia has been wonderful.  I love them both.  I love her the reddest, and I love Michelle the bluest, and together I love them the purplest.  (Laughs)

It’s interesting that all the women in his life such as Anna and Nina, all have a soft-spot for Valentin; even though they don’t necessarily want to be with him.  These ladies are just drawn to this dysfunctional guy.

JAMES:  Don’t you think?  Is it that you want to help him, you want to fix him, you see the potential, you want to help him despite himself?  I think that’s what it is.

Courtesy/ABC

Do you think Valentin’s still going to try to win Nina back, or is that done? 

JAMES:  I don’t know.  I do know that the Valentin I know will never shake Nina, and when he loves, he loves forever.  He can be simultaneously in love with Anna whenever she’s near.  I don’t believe he ever truly got over Nina hearing his story and his brokenness and still loving him twice as hard.  Years ago, there was a moment where he said to her the stuff that he’s never said, and Michelle beautifully kissed my tears away and said, “You’re beautiful” to me.   I think in that moment his fate was sealed.  I think he knew that this was his woman forever.  So, I just don’t think that that goes away.  I think he will always carry a torch for Nina, for sure.

Do you see Valentin becoming darker and darker now that he had found out he is Helena’s offspring?

JAMES:  Well, yes and no.  I remember watching these scenes and we’ve done a lot of this stuff, and you know how easy it is to sort of go, “Let’s go dark, let’s go dark, let’s go more dark,” and after a while, I go, “You know, maybe he does learn something.  Maybe there’s hope for this guy after all.”  Of course, more bad stuff will happen to him, and he will do more bad stuff, because that’s just who he is.  A leopard can’t change his spots, and those are his survival instincts, but there are some new colors, and it’s all a direct result of all of just these horrible things that have happened to him… mostly learning that he is part Helena and he can’t undo that.

We saw that Nelle (Chloe Lanier) called and then goes to see Valentin, because she wants to sell her shares of ELQ.  So, obviously he has the potential to become really rich here which is what would give him his power back.  How do you think that will go over with the rest of the Quartermaines? (Laughs)

JAMES:  (Laughs) A lot of the Quartermaine actors have been asking me that in the hallways of General Hospital!  Isn’t that interesting how he’ll just sort of switch families? (Laughs)

Of all the people, just as Valentin’s life is in the gutter and he is at his lowest, who should show up with a sort of lifeline, Nelle! How will he go about attempting to gain control of ELQ?

JAMES:  Valentin knows he has to get the majority shares to gain a control of the company, and he has to do it fast before people see that he’s doing it.  So, that’s where Michael E. Knight (Martin Gray) has been.  He’s gallivanting the states rapidly accumulating shares.  (Laughs)

It’s been so fun seeing you and Michael Knight on-screen and on a daytime soap together again, as so many remember you as Tad Martin and Will Cortlandt on All My Children.  How has it been getting the chance to work with Michael?

JAMES:  My God, are you kidding me?  He taught me!  He’s the guy who taught me.  I didn’t know how to do this.  Nobody instinctively knows… this is a very unique art form.  It’s more Jazz than anything else, and he showed me how to do it!  Walt Willey (Ex-Jack, AMC) showed me how to do my hair, and Michael Knight taught me how to break down a script!  And, what’s so funny is he is still doing it.  In a scene on GH, when he threw in that line, “From now on, you pay in advance,” I just about fell on the floor!  I thought, “There he is!  That’s the Michael I’ve always known and loved.”

Photo: JPI

Who would have thought that you guys would get to share scenes like that again on soaps?  You just never know in this life who may be wind up back in your orbit.

JAMES:  It’s incredible.  That’s what we say all of the time… “Who would have thought?”  You could never plan something like this and that we’d still be doing it at this point.

Now with Lulu (Emme Rylan) learning that Valentin is not a Cassadine, and Nina apparently moving on to a relationship with Jax, what do you think it will mean for their relationship in raising their daughter, Charlotte?

JAMES:  I think in the short-term, Valentin’s shelved any ideas of getting her out of Charlotte’s life.  He’s sort of putting out the fires in his own personal life.  Charlotte needs a mother in her life, and he’s quite willing to share custody as they always have been.  She seems to be looking at this as an opportunity to paint him as an unfit father, and she wants full-time custody.  So, we’re back to that again.  It looks to me like Lulu is kicking Valentin while he’s down.

It was so nice to see you, and some of your GH co-stars such as: Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny) show up for Y&R’s Eric Braeden’s (Victor Newman) 40th anniversary on set celebration at CBS.  It was quite the event; speakers galore, and so many from our industry and beyond in attendance.

JAMES:  It was pretty profound.  Eric has always been kind to me.  I only worked with him on one movie, a western, called The Man Who Came Back, and that was probably 12 years ago.  He has been so complimentary of me in interviews and in his book.  So, if he does that with me, I can only imagine how many dear, dear friendships he has.  So, the fact that everybody showed up like that from the president of CBS Entertainment to local councilmen, and that they were willing to do be there for 2 hours was really proof of how much they love him.  Peter Bergman (Jack, Y&R), who I don’t even think was working that day, came in for it and spoke at the event. There was so much respect shown for Eric and what he has meant to this medium.

Your album The Apple Tree was so well-received, and everyone always loves seeing you get the opportunity to sing on General Hospital as well.  Will you continue to put out more music in 2020?

JAMES:  Yeah, that’s the plan.  I have another one that I’m working on.  I have a bunch of songs.  I’m in no rush to get it out.  Unfortunately, I lost Glen Roven, who wrote the cello part for Book of Love, passed away right after the Nurses’ Ball where I played Book of Love, which is really heartbreaking, and then, Michael Sherwood, who helped me with a number of songs on the record passed away right after The Apple Tree came out.  So, I’m a little gun-shy.  But, I’m planning on having something out by December for Christmas.

In closing, what would you say the fans should look forward to in the weeks ahead from Valentin?

JAMES: Look forward to that moment where Valentin is so low that there’s nowhere to go but up!  The comeback is going to be one for the books.

So, what do you think of how Valentin’s life hit rock bottom?  Do you think he will ever win Nina back? Do you think he will takeover ELQ? Share your thoughts on James’ recent performances and his thoughts contained in this interview via the comment section below.

General Hospital Delivers Super-Sized Promo: The Truth About Wiley To Be Revealed

This week, General Hospital is going full-tilt set to deliver the moment that fans of the show have been waiting for since back in September 2018, when on one fateful night  …

(Cliff Notes version here) Brad and Lucas’s adopted child dies, Nelle gives birth in the woods with an assist from Liesl. Brad and Nelle comes face to face on the road; the two switch babies and keep the long-held secret that Brad and Lucas are actually raising Nelle and Michael’s bio-son. Meanwhile, Willow thinks she is Wiley’s birth mother, having no idea, that her baby died with Brad.

Julian has been in on the secret, and when Brad finally revealed to Lucas the truth about Wiley, it caused their car to crash (Remember: Kendra who in the other car, who was trying to kill Alexis) which has left Lucas with only fragmented memories of that night.

Realizing everything is getting too close for comfort for the truth to come out; Brad accepts a job in Portland and is moving with Lucas and Wiley, while Nelle is selling her shares of ELQ to Valentin to get out of dodge too, so she can follow them, we think.

But in one of the best promo’s we have ever seen for a daytime drama series, as you see below; will Lucas remember and reveal the truth to Michael?

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Valentin’s World Crumbles; Anna & Finn Put On The Brakes

Yesterday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital featured emotional performances by James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) as it looks like a significant shift may be coming for their characters on the Port Charles canvas, or is it?

Valentin has overheard Nina (Cynthia Watros) telling Ava (Maura West) that she kissed Jax (Ingo Rademacher), which further sends him into a tailspin.  He is still reeling from the fact that the DNA results, that he had run, proved that he is not a Cassadine, as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) had claimed and revealed.

When Valentin enters Ava’s art gallery, he gets a moment alone with Nina where he tells her he doesn’t know who he is anymore.  Nina tells him he is free now to start over and concentrate on his daughter, Scarlett, but that she will no longer be a part of his life.

You can tell Nina still has feelings for Valentin and cares about him, but is it more? Or, is she now going to move on with Jax? Well, after a pep talk, of sorts, from Ava, looks like she may just go after Jax and see where things may lead with him.

Later, Valentin is drinking and gets his gun and is ready to kill Jax, or so it seems.  He heads out to go confront Jax in his office.  Next, we see Valentin shoot Jax with Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Dustin (Mark Lawson) looking on.  However, we soon learn that this scenario was all in Valentin’s mind, as we come back to present time and Jax, Dustin, and Josslyn are all talking and wondering what Valentin wants.  He covers and tells Jax he just came to tell him he wasn’t a Cassadine.  Still later, Lulu is filled in about Valentin.

Wally Kurth Talks DAYS Dramatic Twists That Gave Justin a Heartbreaking Story, a New Romance, and Unforgettable Moments

Meanwhile, Brad (Parry Shen) meets up with Nelle (Chloe Lanier) and tells her that he and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are moving away from Port Charles.  He admits to her that he told Lucas before the accident, about baby Wiley being Michael and Nelle’s bio-son.  She is pissed.  Nelle realizes he wants to move Lucas and Wiley away to keep from triggering Lucas’ memory of the car crash.  Later, that prompts Nelle to leave Valentin a message that she is ready to sell her ELQ shares to him as she needs to leave town ASAP.

However, when Nelle places her call, Vakentin does not pick up; instead he is on the floor drunk, and opens a box with the Cassadine ring in it, and lo and behold, we see a woman appear, who by all accounts will be Helena (Constance Towers) since we know Towers is making a visit during February sweeps.  Will Valentin be talking to a dead Helena about the lies perpetrated on him … or is something else going on? Stay tuned for today’s episode.

Elsewhere, Anna is angry that Finn betrayed her with confirming information to Jason (Steve Burton) and his stance on her son Peter’s dirty deeds.. Finn says she’s just so blind to the truth about Peter and he is a dangerous man; after all, Peter kept Jason locked up for years.  Anna says Jason will now retaliate and try to kill Peter.  She is overcome with terror and upset that no one will give Peter the benefit of a doubt.
