Walt Willey Makes A Return to General Hospital

Those who were hoping to see more of former All My Children favorite, Walt Willey on General Hospital will get their wish!

Now comes word from TV Line, that Willey will reprise his role for a second stint on the long-running ABC daytime drama series.  A rep for GH confirmed that Walt will be seen in a multi-episode encore that will begin to air in late August.

Willey, was seen in a three-episode arc back in July when, in story, Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Lucy (Lynn Herring) visited Jackson in Pine Valley to find out some dirt on Martin Grey (Willey’s ex AMC castmate, Michael E. Knight).

Previously, Walt played Jackson on All My Children till the series was canceled and last aired on the network version of the show in 2011.  Jack was one of the all-time loves of Erica Kane played by Susan Lucci.

Not only has the character of Jackson now crossed over to General Hospital for what will be a second time, but the character and Willey also took the guy to another former ABC daytime soap opera, The City, back in 1996.

So, excited to see Walt Willey back on GH to continue Jackson’s GH story? Comment below.

The more we get to see Jack the better! I love that he’s playing Jackson Montgomery from Pine Valley. Thank you for this pleasant surprise! Love it!

Get that man with Diane, ASAP!!

I thought the same thing.

This is FANTASTIC news! I knew he’d be back after how positive his first three-episode guest stint was. Am hoping he’s in Port Charles this go ’round, and that maybe ex-wife number three pops up, too! Honestly, Walt Willey fits in wonderfully into the General Hospital canvas, and I wouldn’t be upset with a permanent recurring gig.

Scott (ATWT fan), I always enjoy your posts but I have to disagree with you here. GH needs to bolster its teen/20s scene with meaningful and credible characters. (Where are Elizabeth’s sons?) not add yet another senior citizen to the mix. I will accept Walt Willey if we then get rid of Michael Knight and/or Tristan Rogers, lol.

Because he’s a very good actor for one reason, despite his” 0ld age”. My God, you are ridiculous, wanting to trade off a senior for a boring kid. Joss, Trina ,etc are the closest we have to teens and you are saying you want more of them? We’re lucky that most of the kids on GH are good little actors, smart and sassy, especially Leo, that kid is something else.

Get rid of Tristan, who plays a beloved character that’s been a part of the canvas for over 40 years?

I always wanted him to play Sharon’s long lost father on Y&R. Such a handsome man I always dreamed he could be a force to be reckoned with on that show they really need a new competitive face oh well

Jackson should give the update on his nephew Sean Montgomery his nieces Bianca and Molly as well as his daughter Greenlee I’m sure she reunited with the great love of her life Leo DuPres.

Yes yes yes!

Kelly Monaco Celebrates 20 Years on GH and Sam’s Evolution: “All the Pieces Don’t Fit Perfectly Yet, But It’s Certainly Not Broken Anymore!”

Sunday, October 1st will mark the 20th anniversary of Kelly Monaco’s debut on General Hospital as Sam McCall.  And as the story goes, when Kelly finished her run on Port Charles as Livvie Locke (2000-2003), and the show had been canceled, the three major networks were all interested in her to join their soaps.

In the end, GH won out and fans of the ABC daytime drama series have been the lucky ones to have Monaco join the A-list cast of the iconic soap. Throughout Sam’s journey in Port Charles, viewers have seen quite the character growth. Sam started on the show as a con and hustler, and bloomed into a bonafide heroine and a private investigator.

Kelly shared with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue, how she viewed the Sam of old, to the Sam of today: “Sam came on to the canvas only having herself and her brother, always taking care of someone, and never being taken care of.  I think the biggest evolution for her is starting from being a really lonely, scared woman and becoming a woman who is still really independent, but is protected by family and friends and love and relationships and loyalty, and she never had that before.”

In a very poetic way, Monaco added on her character’s development: “She came in bent and broken, and I feel like there’s a lot of her that’s still broken, but she’s constantly sort of putting the Rubik’s Cube together. All the pieces don’t fit perfectly, yet, but it’s certainly not broken anymore.”

Throughout Sam’s two decades in Port Charles she has been in love, suffered terrible lost, found family members, had children, and has been involved in some of the most dangerous and criminal cases involving many a villain as she tried to help bring them to justice.

Currently, Sam is involved in a romance with Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna).  Viewers wonder if Lulu ever wakes up out of her coma, would that spell trouble for their relationship, and in turn, give Kelly some great meaty story to work with?

Now, in the comment section below, share your congrats to Kelly for her 20-year-run on GH. Then let us know, what has been your favorite Sam story over the years?
