General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

Photo: ABC

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I loved Susan Brown as Gail. I even have vague memories of her in The Young Marrieds. It’s great that GH is paying tribute to her. May she rest in peace.

I looked her up– Susan Brown (May 4, 1932 – August 31, 2018) was an American television and film actress and interior designer. She was best known for her roles on daytime soap operas, particularly General Hospital; in 1979, she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for her role on the show. Brown’s first soap role was on From These Roots in 1959, taking over temporarily from leading actress Ann Flood.[2] Afterwards, she also subbed for Flood on numerous occasions in the role of Nancy Karr on The Edge of Night.[4] She later had regular roles on the short-lived… Read more »

I have been waiting for this. And yes, I expect some powerful scenes with Monica since I’ve made it clear many times that she is my favorite character on the show. I am hoping for some flashbacks too.

absolutely, I hope they show old clips and let the audience know that Gail will now be w/ Lee in heaven.

So glad they’re addressing Susan’s passing, and thus, Gail’s. She was a great actress and part of GH’s history. It’s certainly fitting.

Hope they do this right…not with Scott talking to Ava about her…Scott, Laura and Monica should be featured!!!

She was a great actress–so believable in character. Loved all her scenes with Monica Quartermaine. RIP.

It’s rare that I offer kudos to GH, but I applaud them for giving a tribute (no matter how short, as the one for Lee) to the character of Gail. Yes, Monica, Scotty, and even Laura should be included. That being said, no need for Sonny…

Very well put, Gentleman James! I couldn’t agree with you more…especially for that last sentiment! (I would also add the barmy, annoying Lucy as another unnecessary addition to this well-deserved salute to the lovely Miss Brown! The three who best knew and adored Gail are the terrific trio you mentioned..) Having said that, here’s hoping that this treasured GH character receives a tribute imbued with the abundance of class and dignity which was the standard for her portrayer….they certainly don’t make actresses of her kind these days!

Hello Shay:

Expanding on my previous reply to you about the Gail tribute, what particularly resounds with me is your comment: “here’s hoping that this treasured GH character receives a tribute imbued with the abundance of class and dignity which was the standard for her portrayer.” Susan Brown deserves that, indeed.

As for your thoughtful holiday greetings to me, I am most appreciative. Thank you for making me feel welcome. I also wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas and the best in the New Year!

And thank you once again, James! I have always revered the ladies—-both onscreen and in real life!—of Miss Brown’s particular generation…They had such a grace and elegance to their presence that is, by and large, sadly missing in today’s society! Seeing them leave us never fails to make me very sad indeed! I was blessed to have many of her kind in my personal life to serve as fine examples of womanhood during my formative years, so I definitely have a more, dare I say, “traditional” ideal of females, in general…I just love dressing to the nines and observing what… Read more »

Shay, it’s great to hear about the your “fine examples of womanhood during my formative years.” I think it’s refreshing when we can pinpoint the people and events in our lives that made us who we are and honor such people. It’s a very sweet lesson you’ve shared with us today, Shay.

Thank you also for your kind words, Shay. You’ve made my day again! 🙂

Hopefully Monica, Scotty, and Laura will be front and center but part of me thinks that the show will use Gail’s passing as an excuse for Carly and Sonny to remember Morgan and reflect on their own loss…you know, ‘cause everything is about the Corinthos family.

I hope it’s a better tribute than what they did for the passing of Peter Hansen (Lee Baldwin). That episode really fell short, hardly any flashback scenes and not even a proper memorial service. So sad.

always nice to see the flashbacks of GH when you’ve been a fan for 45 years
