GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sam's Tumble Down The Stairs & Parker Arrives!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

At the very end of last Friday’s cliffhanger for General Hospital, two major plot developments occurred.  First, as Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) is about to go back to school she is greeted at the door by Parker (Ashley Jones), who turns out as many fans suspected is a woman.

This sent GH fans on social media, and on messages board to ask, and some to hope, that GH is about to reveal that Kristina is a lesbian.  This would be an interesting twist, especially to see how Kristina’s parents: Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Alexis  (Nancy Lee Grahn) would ultimately handle the news.  Will GH embark on some type of coming out story utliziing the talents of Lexi Ainsworth?  That remains to be seen.  Clearly, when Kristina had a chance to come clean to her mother that she failed her last semester, and then having some kind of apparent liaison with Professor Parker, Kristina dodged any confrontation or admission, and said she would be back for Alexis’ wedding to Julian (William deVry).  This happened prior to being stopped on her way out by Parker herself.

Courtesy/ABC

Elsewhere, Jason (Billy Miler), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), and Franco (Roger Howarth) are now all on to the disturbing drawings of Jake (James Nigbor).  For Jason, the one that was most concerning was Jake’s drawing of Sam (Kelly Monaco).   While the three of them are meeting at GH to discuss Jake’s mental state, Sam has headed over to Elizabeth’s to talk to her about her conversation with Franco. But when she gets there, she finds the window shattered, Jake’s finger bleeding, and starts to put two and two together that he is the one that broke the window.  Jake runs away and downstairs, where Sam follows.  Next, Sam tumbles from the top of the staircase to the ground.  We fade to black.

So, will Sam’s fall bring Jason and her closer together?  Will Jake try to somehow kill Sam?  Did Helena (Constance Towers) do something to alter his mind while in captivativity, or is she pulling the strings from “beyond the grave”?

As for Kristina and Parker:  Do you hope it turns out that Kristina is a lesbian? Are you interested to see how the relationship plays out between the two women?  How do you think Sonny and Alexis would react to the news of Kristina being with another woman?  Does GH need to pick up the pace of their scenes and or storytelling, when often times it feels like the show is slowed way down, just before it picks back up?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Helen has mind control on Jake but thats not the real Jake- he is a clone and Helene is using him partly in her curse against Sam…maybe this is what FV plans to reveal…Jake is an evil clone of the deceased Jake and Helene is ALIVE!!!!…lol

hey Jimh..
Helena would not mess with own, she would never mess with her child grandson.
I can see Helena coming back and dealing with Sam, if J&S have the talent to write for the great CT and give Helena her true Cassidine self back..
I would love for Guza jump in and do GH right 🙂

@CeeCee, Sweetie… Helena, will rise from the ashes like the Phoenix.
She has to be alive, Helena is the only person who can follow through with
that evil curse she placed on Sam’s head. Which means EVERYONE
closest to Sam will be blanketed by the same darkness… Kristina has
started to experience it, Alexis & Julian are next… Jake, Elizabeth, Jason
are all pawns on Helena’s chessboard of destruction & revenge.
Let’s not forget, Jason was there to prevent Sam from falling on two
other occasions… Third time UR out.

Yes, but the whole Jason reveal storyline was dragged on well before J & S arrived. I do admit feeling disappointed that they do not expedite the story and continued with the one step forward, two steps back pattern. Jason has a small memory flash and then nothing. They have put a capital A on anticlimatic and sorry, I do not find Jake acting like a psycho to be that interesting. It just seems to be another way of making Franco redeemable and relevant. Jason has visited with Monica maybe once since realizing he is her son? And where are… Read more »

I think in your first two sentences, you’ve encapsulated my disappointment with Passanante/Altman, Harry. They did inherit some problems, but I haven’t seen much real repair going on. (The Elizabeth-Jason story, as a very good example, was ill conceived, but so far they haven’t done anything to make it any better.) And they’ve introduced some problems of their own too. I’m willing to give it another six months or so, but their work so far has not been encouraging.

I find the show utterly boring. One thing Ron did was bring back some of the action and the crazy stuff from the 80s. Actors should be able to play all kinds of stories.

Hi Allen..
The soaps need younger writers to pull the soaps out of deep sleep..

Didja you know; RC was 41, the youngest writer of them all, some by decades..
He was the master of twist and turns, surprises, and high drama, GH was the most modern soap under RC and- GH had humor!!
GH was fun to watch..

RC should have had a co-writer, someone brought in to write with him, but not let go.

Michael (not Fairman)
Guest
Michael (not Fairman)

Though I like Ron C.’s writing pretty well, su—certainly among any of the recent crop of soap writers, he’s the one whose work I find most engaging—I’m not sure it’s because he’s younger. Nor am I sure that simply hiring younger writers will shake soaps out of their doldrums. What really needs to change is the mindset among TPTB at the network and sponsor level, who seem to micromanage and stifle creativity because they can’t get out of the way of people who actually do have some creative talent. I like the idea of Carlivati with a cowriter who can… Read more »

(continued) to provide the elements he’s not good at. The most successful writing partnerships on the soaps through the years played to the various team members’ strengths—but to make something like that work, each members has to acknowledge that he has both strengths and weaknesses, and some of RC’s behavior in public and on Twitter seems to indicate he’s unaware that his writing can ever go awry.

Sam falling down the stairs was not a cliffhanger lol We all know she isn’t deads, she’s not leaving GH.. Jake is messed up in the, he will be falsely blamed, and eventually Jason will blame Jake which will cause Jason to be highly guilt ridden when he learns it was not Jake, it was Sam and her stilt boots of 7” heels at fault.

I think we will find out that Kristina is bisexual. Love all things Sam and Jason. I don’t think nor do I want Jake to be a clone or under mind control. I would rather they deal with a mental health issue that in some ways is passed down from Elizabeth and in other ways stems from his being held captive for many years. All that coupled with a typical desire for your parents to be together.

Kristina’s story with the female professor could be interesting – depending on whether they use her history. Her abuse by Kiefer and her crushes on both Johnny and Nathan need to be addressed. I found it surprising that Sam didn’t show more concern @ her sister, who was nearly beaten to death, was offering sex to anyone. So far, there’s been no mention of her relationships, the fact that she’s a widow or her abuser

su0000
Guest
su0000

Kristina- she offered to sleep with the husband of the professor for better grades and has been found out for doing that, and offering sex for a good grade is bad, very bad..
His Professor wife is confronting Kristina or something as that..
another triangle of sorts coming up..
Kristina is not a lesbian..
imo..

Thinking Kristina is not gay but her failing grades gave the professor the opportunity to bribe her into something uncomfortable to pass the semester. Otherwise history has been rewritten again. Don’t like that so much. Bring back Brad and Lucas/Felix/Rosalie. Leave Kristina be for now. I know there aren’t any available men right now but how about the doctor headed in?

Well personally, I am back to LOVING every single episode of “GH” again, and those atleast two cliffhangers, to get Us to tune in Monday were magnificent!!! I am loving the new Writing Team, and they are doing a fantastic job, given all the danglers, dropped, and ridiculous storylines that Ron C. wanted to write ONLY… NOW WE must have Laura in her OWN frontburner storyline… Anyday with Genie is a great day, but now that She is back on long term contract, She is in some way connected to most everyone in town, as well as those living out… Read more »

Couldn’t agree more, Buddy! It’s nice to see some positivity about GH on this comment forum. I just binge watched this past week’s GH as I usually do every weekend, and I usually judge what kind of week it was by how many times I hit the fast forward button, lol. There were times in the past where I would sometimes literally fast forward through almost an entire episode. I think I did it twice for the whole week this time. That tells me it was a good week. No major earth shattering happenings, just some good old fashioned believable… Read more »

GH is on fire right now. I haven’t been so excited for GH Monday in a long time. The final two episodes of last week were just great and left us with some solid cliffhangers. I am most excited about Kristen/Parker and Sam/Jake but the interaction with Jason/Liz/Franco was also so very good. The fact that Nina is back in play with Crimson will make me care about Olivia’s situation. I can’t wait for the followup with Robert/Anna searching for Carlos/Sabrina and also taking down Paul. The little cat and mouse game with Hayden/Nikolas and Hayden/Tracy is also good soapy… Read more »

why didn’t sam go find the babysitter rather than running behind jake into the cellar – how dumb is that – she should have let the babysitter know that jake had cut his finger…………the babysitter was in charge not sam!!

Yeah but Sam is lead character and not the babysitter plus its a soap!

Hey, Timmm,
Jake told Sam the babysitter was upstairs or something. I just assumed Jakey clocked her. I doubt, with all that commotion would she just let him run free. She must have heard Sam, no?

Lucy D.
Guest
Lucy D.

I don’t think Jake hurt the sitter. She was in the shower–right before Sam showed up the sitter called down to Jake saying it was taking longer to get the stuff out of her hair. Then Sam showed up–and all hell broke loose–courtesy of Sam.

I could be wrong but I think Jake is innocent in this case. He’s likely the culprit who broke the family photo.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

She went upstairs to wash her hands in a “Bigger” sink! I would think most kitchen sinks are bigger than bathroom sinks but whatever! Maybe the water was running and she didnt hear? I hope Jake isnt a killer! Children kill in movies and its wrong but on or beloved soap GH, horrible!

CeeCee

Hi, Lucy.
Thanks for telling me that. I missed that entire exchange between the sitter and Jake. I must have been distracted by my kids. You are probably right and I assume too much, blaming Jake.

I agree Mari…love Sam. People point out the most ridiculous things…yeah, she’s on a soap today because she was a hot model years ago. Ummmm. No. She’s on a soap because yes, she initially had a look they wanted, like every other actor on TV, film or theatre, and then got the role.

Some of us, like Mari and I and others, love this down-to-earth street smart chick. Her personality is one of the most grounded on the show. Until her character says or does something for me to feel otherwise…she’s one of my favorites.

she’s told Jason several times… how she’s tripped…. ie: at Sams Place when she slipped… and Jason righted her

You are so right, Michele. This breastfeeding ‘excuse’ is a ploy, contrived to give Alexis something to do other than get in a teen-aged tizzy over her ‘religious’ wedding ceremony.

is kristina a lesbian? who cares? she’s young and in college nothing is written in stone. she could be experimenting, curious, or bi or bored, regardless, it doesn’t really matter, i can’t picture anyone really making a big deal about it. As for Sam, goodness grief what can i say, she continues to prove she’s not the brightest girl on the block, wearing those high heel boots she was basically a walking accident ready to happen. I mean didn’t she already twist her foot by trying to cross nickels balcony the last time?

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

That’s what I said, aria. If Kristina is a lesbian or gay, what’s the big deal? There must be a deeper ‘something’ going on …..
And, yes, Sam loves her boots/booties. She actually just tripped again going up the stairs of her apartment/house when she was there with Jason a couple of weeks ago; and, he caught her. You really have a way of describing her to the letter. We short girls always try to look taller, I guess. Lol.

Michael, I’m a big fan, but why would your write: Will Jake try to finish off what he started and kill Sam? He didn’t start anything. He ran into the basement because the supposed grownup in the room was accusing him of lying and essentially harassing him. He didn’t grab her, touch the stairs or anything else. He is 100% blameless, though he will feel guilty cause he’s a kid. This is all Sam’s fault, but she won’t take responsibility. She never does.

Really–you think it’s ok for someone who the child has shown he dislikes to accuse the kid of wrongdoing and then grab his arm? You’d let that happen to your kid?

Sam wasn’t trying to help Jake–she wanted to get there so Jason wouldn’t get mad at her talking to Franco.

Sams’ supposed to be a grownup and all she did was confront & harass a kid

Rebecca1
Guest
Rebecca1

Once again I agree with you Mari. Sam was trying to help Jake. Her first inclination was to speak to Liz and Jason after thinking about what Franco told her. She then checked the window to make sure there wasn’t anyone still lurking about. When she realized Jake’s hand was cut and there was no evidence of outside danger, she reached to comfort him and told him she needed to call his parents. He ran…she went to find him…obviously out of concern…

LOL…the anti Sam group really see things through suspicious minds…

CeeCee
Guest

Sam knows she cannot go behind Liz’s back and ask Jake questions. However, when she is found, I trust her enough to tell the truth. I doubt she would blame Jake trying to hurt her, unless she really believes it. I do not think Sam would lie about something so big. So far, I have not seen any deception from Sam. She seems honest to me, albeit a bit full of herself.

CeeCee
Guest

I agree with you, Lucy. Sam has no business talking to Jake, questioning Jake, accusing Jake or even looking at Jake. As dispicable as Liz’s past actions were ( and I do not condone that), the ‘saintly’ Sam is doing exactly the same thing as Liz, in a more up-front way…..grab Jason for herself. She should just have stuck to let things develop as they will. She kept running to Jason for every little thing, trying to turn him against Liz. Jason is now aware of all the transgressions Liz has committed….. But, she’s Sam; the princess. I hope she… Read more »

LOL I just about had another conniption…. rolling here Sam is again… blaming Franco for causing the disturbances at Liz house… how it was Liz who told Franco to do these things !!!!! why is Franco even talking to Sam in the first place ? I’ve already posted how Sam told Liz she was once again lying to Jason about these staged accidents… blaming… Read more »

@Patrick. Rot in the cellar? That is so funny, Patrick….still laughing. When you’re right, you’re right. Sam is using every available ploy to get Jason to distance himself from both Liz and Jake. I can understand how a child would feel threatened by another woman/man in his parents’s life. He’s a child, as disturbed as he may be. But, she’s an adult and should have known better than trying to get ingormation from him. Oh, yeah, great sleuth. Even coppers can’t question minors without the presence of a parent or guardian. She has no jurisdiction over Jake, especially after Liz… Read more »

Patrick…Sam is technically Jake’s step mom AND she was warned by Franco…who was rigjt in his assessment that Jake is troubled. Dhe was also asked by Jadon to imvestigate the breakins. She wasnt harsh or threatening to.Jake, was concsrned he was bleeding and was about to call jSon and Liz when Jake ran. Given the severity of the moment zi think she wad in her petfect right.

I think Liz keeping Sam’s son Danny from knowing his dad, Jason, is alive was a lot more selfish, cruel and manipulative.

Parker is Kristina’s former teacher. Any relationship would in real life get Parker into trouble, as it should. For that reason I hope they do not follow that plot line. I expect parker reported her because otherwise if it came out that anything happened between them Parker would lose her job and if she has one at the college level or K-12, her teaching certificate/ license. I don’t know how old Parker is. Kristina is either a bisexual or she is willing to have sex with anyone to get out of trouble. I would not like her to get in… Read more »

I am getting more confused by the minute. When GB first mentioned that Parker was female, I ran with my imagination. I proposed that Kristina was either a lesbian or bi. Failing school, she resorted to propositioning her professor for a passing grade, after she found out the teacher was gay. Now, this was all in my head; an assumption/supposition. I also commented, on the same post, that Kristina was expelled because of cheating on an exam or for plagiarism. It is very common in both High a School and University. Since then, after I calmed down ( as Shay… Read more »

Does this mean I will not have to hear Sam’s monotone and repetitive dialogue each and every episode-going forward? Don’t even get me started on her lackluster “P.I” skills. Thank goodness! As much as I like nu-Jason, Sam makes him boring, too. And Lulu, seriously…the day that I would re-enter the loft that my husband cheated on me, not once, but twice, with my cousin, IN MY BED, with candles, music, etc., and beg HIM to take ME back is the day that will never happen. Pathetic. This “woman” seriously needs a life, and of course, we have to roll… Read more »

Hey CeeCee,
Nice to hear from you. Hope you are doing well.
I do not DVR the show anymore. I catch-up on it over the weekend while cleaning (ha-ha) or while in bed reading the recaps. It’s just too over the top or boring and repetitive, IMO. I find myself rolling my eyes when most characters come on the screen…

PS. Here they are….Dante and Lulu, toasting, kissing, ladidaing it all over the place. No matter how many times that bed has bee stripped clean, it will always carry the scent of another woman. Lulu, how low can you go? I would never take ‘something’ in that has been somewhere else. Also, I would never drink beer, especially from the bottle. I know it’s the thing now, for men and women alike to drink beer; be chummy….I just can’t get used to that! A woman holding a beer is soooo…..well, not so for me. Does that make me a priss?… Read more »

@Shay. Are you surprised Lulu and Dante are headed for splitsville? Although I did not want them to get back together, I thought that’s the direction TPTB were taking. I was actually surprised they are no more. So, does this leave the door open for Val? Is that also over? I don’t know, ShayGirl….Dante always seems in a daze to me. Maybe he’ll bump into someone while somnambulating. But who?? Another sleepy-head? Dante even looks like he just got out of bed, no? It’s not that I don’t like him, he’s just not interesting to me. I am thoroughly enjoying… Read more »

Hey CeeCeeGirl, you and me both. I did send a sizable response to your Nina/Franco remarks. Basically, I told you the part I found funny was the “melting away” imagery…..then explained my thoughts on the characters. Oh well, another one bites the dust! LOL. As for Lulu, I thought her entire approach to a reunion with Dante was pathetic….his infidelity led to the disintegration of their marriage, and whilst I can see why he was upset about Lulu enlisting Johnny for revenge, the point is it would never have been necessary if he had kept his zipper up. Why Lulu… Read more »

Totally agree, dmr.

Once a cheater, always a cheater. Don’t care if Dante got the wrong idea about Lulu and Dillon — if cheating is a man’s first response to a problem then he isn’t worth the time or trouble.

Ain’t that the truth, dmr. I love my soaps so much that I wonder if I watch out of loyalty, routine or nostalgia; because some of these storylines and characters are painful to even contemplate.
Regardless, i missed you and I am happy you’re in there somewhere. Lol. Night.

Thanks, CeeCee! I could not believe when Dante and Lulu were on the bed. Unbelievable! Was it even mentioned, the cheating-in the bed, that he shared with his wife? Ugh. I’ve never cared for Dante, useless keystone cop, IMO. I can’t stand Lulu now, since Emme has taken over. She’s no longer strong, fearless, or fierce, IMO. I miss Claire Labine and Wendy Riche, the 90’s era-Sonny, Brenda, Lois, Ned, the Q’s, L & B Records, etc., etc.

Aren’t we all grateful that Jason was spared another head injury? Sam could wake up with her brains scrambled and no one would be the wiser.

Maybe she and Sonny can swap tips on operating a wheelchair?

As per usual, I am alone I my opinion. I was surprised and a little tingly inside to see that Parker turned out to be a woman. Also, I think the two actresses have a ton of chemistry between them! It has kind of a “Carol” feel to it. Others may not like the pairing, and that’s fine, but I am sooooooo very over Brad and Lucas. They are not an attractive couple and I throw up just a little bit in my mouth anytime they kiss or have sex. I think Lucas should’ve wound up with Felix and I… Read more »

Don’t know if anyone posted this idea — but does anyone else think that Kristina being a lesbian/bi may be the source which brings a truce between Sonny and Julian? With both having gay/lesbian children, maybe the two will find some common ground — with Alexis in the middle. Maybe the writers can bring some peace to all this silly mob feuding, and little by little write the mob bs out of GH altogether!

How ridiculous is this storyline of Sam falling down the stairs.
1) Where is Sam’s car ? Or does she walk all around Port Charles .
2) Jake is missing. No one thinks to check the basement of his own home !!!!
Wake up writers. We are not ignorant viewers, so stop writings as though we are !!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Does Franco Have Planned For Peter … The Ultimate Revenge?

This week on General Hospital, the story picks back up on the night of the double-wedding debacle for Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton).

Last week’s Friday cliffhanger saw Franco (Roger Howarth) taking a crowbar to Peter’s head and knocking him out after realizing the voice in his head was that of Peter’s.

Meanwhile, Maxie who is in the hospital trying to ensure the safety of her unborn baby with Peter, is getting an earful on how far his deception has gone, and from all the people she knows and trusts.  Now, Anna (Finola Hughes) comes to see her God-daughter in the latest promo from ABC.

But the twist that many may, or may not, have seen coming is that Franco has taken Peter and tied him up which looks eerily familiar from when Franco’s mind-mapping took place and he was turned into Drew.

With Franco’s growing brain tumor, what is he capable of doing to Peter? Will he exact the perfect revenge on the guy?

Watch the latest teaser below.

Now weigh-in: what do you think Franco will do next? Share your theories in the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
