The new online series Winterthorne, continues to intrigue soap fans with the announcement of another casting addition this afternoon!

None other than General Hospital’s Kathleen Gati (Liesl Obrecht) is set to play the role of Valentina Winterthorne, the power hungry sister of Joanna Winterthorne, to be played by Dallas alum Linda Gray (Sue Ellen).  Watching Linda Gray and Kathleen Gati in scenes together ought to be a hoot!

According to the series creator Michael Caruso on Gati’s role, “Joanna will stop at nothing to unearth the big family secret Miranda is hiding. The character is a strict follower of the old ways of the Winterthorne family which caused a major rift between her and her sister, Joanna.”

In addition, Caruso made these comments on the casting news: “Kathleen Gati is a powerhouse actress who brings a richness and depth to every role she tackles. She is so much more than a traditional ‘villain.’ She really embodies all the layers required for a role like this. She is really going to turn up the heat in this role. All of us are dying to work with her.”

The announcement of Gati to the cast of Winterthorne was broadcast first on today’s episode of Soap Box on TradioV by the Internet radio series co-host Martha Madison, who also plays the lead in Winterthorne!

So, what do you think of Kathleen being part of the cast of Winterthorne?  Excited to see how this series shakes out? Comment below!

Yeah, makes no sense she got no Emmy nom, but it’s rigged anyway. Love that Dr. O! I miss Britt, too.

I believe they need to enter themselves, some actors don’t want to bother doing that/ they don’t see the importance of the emmy game ..t..

jimh, I agree with you and those who also responded. But don’t get me started on the Emmys. Okay, well, I’ll just start… Daytime and nighttime Emmys have both been seriously flawed for decades because popularity, politics, and preposterousness are the norm.

Kathleen Gati is absolutely a terrific actress who steals (even without intending to do so) every scene she’s in.

I will definitely check out this WinterThorne web series. I hop Kathleen’s character is as evil as Dr. Obrecht.

I hope she will be able to drop into Port Charles occasionally to play her own brand of “villain.” She has been such a great addition to the GH family. I will really miss her, but am happy she landed another good role.

Kathleen Gati is not leaving GH ..
GH allows its actors to do other projects while with GH
that is one reason GH has a blocker powerhouse of stars, they are not limited to only GH..

As long as the awesome Ms. Gati continues as the beloved Dr. O., I say the more roles for this talented lady, the merrier! Congratulations!

Shay, just so it doesn’t look like I always have to agree with you, I am going to have to disagree with you on this.
I cannot stand this character.
I fully expect horses to neigh whenever someone calls her name just as they did for the Cloris Leachman character from Young Frankenstein.

Good, I hope that means she is gone for good. Too cartoonish and unbelievable in her role as Nathan’s mom. Speaking of my buddy Nathan, can she get him a job over at WinterThorne as well?

Timm, so you are sitting out on that branch alone, I agree. I do think she overacts, over-mugs and is wayyyy too cartoonish. I know so many viewers, whom I respect a great deal, disagree with me on this but I really have no use for Dr. O. I suppose the actress is good but it’s the writing which has been afforded to this character which is horrible. It is as if the writers cannot make up their minds whether she is this evil and demented villain one would expect to see as Dr Evil’s right hand woman or this… Read more »

Your right Harry, writing has a lot to do with Kathleen’s character. Now no picking on Michele! I lover her and she is being wasted on GH but like you said with Kathleen you cannot directly point the finger at the actress. I hear what your saying about internet soaps BUT it is where everything is ending up. I like my network soaps and will not conform to the internet right now but some day that will be our only choice. Speaking of the internet, you should check out Michele Stafford’s semi bio series from 2013. There are ten episodes… Read more »

Ms. Gati has what I guess you would call “star quality” or ” stage presence” . It’s rare and maybe a little old Hollywood but non the less true. She is so talented! I’m still thinking about the day she told the scary story at. Xmas.

She actually dethroned Dr. Steve Hardy and Dr. Alen Quartermane s long tradition of telling the Christmas story! Not an easy task!

She DID NOT dethrone Dr Hardy and Dr Quartermaine. Clearly, you are not a GH fan or you would not make such a blasphemous statement.
Considering you spelled Alan Quartermaine’s name wrong, I would wager a bet you only recently started watching GH.
It was Christmas, it was not Halloween. That storytelling incident serves as yet another example of how the writers continue to pay infidelity to GH’s history.
The actress is fine–it’s not her fault.

With all respect to a fellow GH superfan I will withdraw my comment about dethroning Dr h and Dr. q.

In fact I have been a pretty big fan sine before Luke and Laura. Really since the early 70s as a teen. Audrey, Jessie, Steve.

These writers still bring back Lesley and Audry and Heather which is a bow to our history.

Harry..
The Krampus is a big part of the celebrations..
here were have a Krampus society, they are/the Krampus, in the prades and many people tell the Krampus story, it is culture.. and there are Krampus parties, it’s quite a celebration tradition..
RC hit it right on 🙂
acknowledging the Krampus was a very righteous thing to do ..

Breaking News

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

Ingo Rademacher Wraps His Run as General Hospital’s Jax

During today’s Monday, November 22nd episode of General Hospital, Ingo Rademacher made his exit as Jasper Jacks.

The actor who is out at the ABC daytime drama series for not adhering and disagreeing to the GH and ABC Covid-19 vaccination mandate, saw his character written-out when Jax shared his final scenes with Laura Wright’s Carly and Cynthia Watros’ Nina.

In story, Jax ran into his ex-wife Carly and informed her he was leaving Port Charles immediately to deal with business in Sydney, Australia.  He adds, he is not planning on coming back to town with this sentiment.“I’m kind of on the outs with everyone in Port Charles right now.”

Things are not be left on good terms with the exes, when Carly spouts, “You know, Jax, I thought I made it clear … my life is none of your business.” After some back and forth about their daughter Josslyn (Eden McCoy), Jax says that he is, “Happy to stay out of your life.”

Later, Jax visits Nina at Charlie’s Pub, and warns her to be careful about getting even more deeply involved with Sonny (Maurice Benard), and she deflects that there is anything going on between them, and telling Jax that her and Sonny don’t have a future together.

Rademacher’s Jax is now off the canvas of the series.

So, what did you think of how GH wrote out Jax and Ingo’s exit from the show? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

He made sacrifices for us, and his family, and I want people to know that not only was he an amazing actor, he was just an amazing man and an amazing father that I look up to.”
