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.

I guess you don’t know true talent when you see it . Kathleen is a fantastic actress, I absolutely adore obrect, she’s hysterical !!!!! Gh has missed her lately I hope she will continue to pop into port Charles as the MUTTER OF ALL MUTTERS!!

I love her and she is playing Linda Gray’s character sister they will set the screens on fire, I can’t wait!

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?

harry

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 female modern answer to Dr Hardy? Really, GH writers, pick a lane for this actress.
I do enjoy subtlety once in awhile but this actress chews up so much scenery she makes Michelle Stafford look like a little coquette.
Now as for yet another Internet series? No, I am not going to watch. There is an embarrassment of riches already available on HBO, Netflix, On Demand, Amazon and Netflex. The last thing we need is yet another Internet soap.
Please stop.

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 and most of them are around 10 minutes long. She really has an interesting life and some of her soap friends pop in and out. I hear she is shopping around a new season.

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!

harry
harry

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.

Patricio

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 ..

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
