General Hospital Stars Participate in GLSEN’s ‘Day of Silence’, Asking You To Do The Same

Courtesy/ABC

General Hospital’s Sofia Mattsson, Cynthia Watros, Kathleen Gati, Brook Kerr and Johnny Wactor appear in a video released this morning, where the actors look to camera and remain silent.

It’s all a part of the ongoing initiative from GLSEN and their “Day of Silence” campaign which is  a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ students and allies all around the country—and the world—take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools.  Every April, students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with Breaking the Silence rallies and events to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive.

This year the day is this coming Friday April 23rd.  General Hospital is showing their support of LGBTQ+students and their right to be safe at school and free of verbal harassment, as well.  The video released today supports the organizations action.

 

Now they ask you to support it as well and make your own, ‘Day of Silence’ video and share it on social media.  Watch General Hospital’s below.

Then let us know, if you stand with GH and their support of GLSEN’s Day of Silence via the comment section.

I don’t disagree; but please stick with daytime drama stories, please. There are too many stories going in different directions; too many preemtions with the Chauvin trial. I love GH but when they go off on these pop culture issues, it’s annoying.

GLSEN’S Day of Silence is not a “pop culture issue,” Shelly.

Is GH actually planning to address this in an episode?

Obviously they can’t have everybody being silent for an entire episode (though it might help if Whiny Heiny was).

Actually, since they seemed to have dropped the story of little Aiden and their speculation over what his orientation might be (based on the fact that he baked cookies??). If he got bullied at school, that might be a way to work it into the storyline.

And then his idiot brother Cameron would find a way to blame it on Jason, like he does everything else.

Poor Aiden, that cute kid WAS bullied in school, by his own cousin, that viper Charlotte.

Violet, I’m glad we’re on the same page about that “little darling” Charlotte. If you ask me, that character got off way too easy, even causing Willow to lose her job thanks to Nina’s manic interference. I hate picking on a child but, let’s face it, the term ‘bad seed’ was coined for a reason.

Thanks, I just can’t stand that kid.Just wait until Papa has a new baby, courtesy of Maxi, which Iam pretty sure Brook Lynn will get her hands on, one way or another.

You have gay characters on this show and a transgender actress but none of them were used?

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
