General Hospital's Jason Thompson Chats On Patrick's Paternity Pickle With Britt And More!

Oh what a tangled web we have weaved …. Britt (Kelly Thiebaud)!  On today’s General Hospital, events go down that seemingly bring Britt and Patrick closer.  What’s a good man and good father like Dr. Drake supposed to do when faced with the prospect that he is a “father” once again?  That is the subject of part of our chat with the popular Emmy-nominated actor, Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) who has had quite the plethora of young ladies to work with during his recent times on General Hospital!

Following the departure of fan favorite, Kimberly McCullough (Robin) Patrick hooked up with Britt, and then ended up falling for Nurse Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo).  After an emotional and heart-tugging 2012, when Thompson was carrying the story of Patrick’s grief over “losing” Robin, now GH had to open up Patrick’s life somewhat to allow the character to move on without Robin.  In the process, we have Sabrina, and bestie Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) digging up proof that Britt is lying about the paternity of her baby, and evil Dr Obrecht (Britt’s mom) lurking around Port Charles, too … and who has been integral to Robin’s captivity and inability to return to Patrick and their daughter, Emma!

So how does Jason feel about Dr. Drake’s latest plight?  How does he make the scenes believable where the audience knows what’s going on, but his character, Patrick, is in the dark?  Read on for some insight from Mr. Thompson!

Does Patrick still truly believe that Britt is carrying his child?  Do you at all think he is being a complete doofus? (Laughs)

JASON:  The only way I can justify it is … Patrick doesn’t see all the other stuff.  So, he sees her being pretty cordial with him, and he sees her being compassionate with him.  And, I think Britt really felt bad when that whole baby barbecue thing happened.  I think the way that I have to connect with it is that I am more worried about the baby than anything.  If I take the test that says it is my baby, then that’s enough information for me to make sure that everything calms down.  Personally, I feel very frustrated with Felix and Sabrina running around trying to do all this stuff to prove he is not the father, and at the end of the day, it’s none of their business.  I bite my tongue every time these scenes happen.  Inside I feel like, “Leave it alone.  It’s none of your business.”   It personally makes me want to believe it, and prove them wrong.  (Laughs)   I know that might not make sense for some people, but I can only go off of what my gut feels.  I try not to bring myself into it, but in my world, if I can kind of connect to the material and what Patrick is going through, then I would tell them to butt out … and in less words than that!  (Laughs)

Patrick seems to warm up to Britt at moments, much to the chagrin of many fans!  (Laughs)

JASON:  Well, Patrick is not aware of all the shenanigans going on behind the scenes.  I still believe Patrick and Britt had a couple of nice moments.  But he is not sure she is the beast that everyone says she is.  We will see!  I am sure I will be proven wrong.  I always am! (Laughs)

Recently, Patrick operated on Franco’s (Roger Howarth) brain tumor, and we got to see Dr. Drake spring into action!  Do you like playing the doctor material when it gets to happen? You are quite convincing as a neurosurgeon, I have to say.

Courtesy/ABC

JASON:  I love the doctor stuff, and I love that kind of character.  I can have all the other things running underneath, but I still have to be professional and a doctor, and it is the same in real life. You can have all these crazy things going on in your life, good or bad, but you still have to do your job, and be professional about it.  I love it, because I could have one scene where Felix might be in the room. I might not have one line, and I might not say anything to Felix, but I will look at him knowing that he is doing something behind Patrick’s back.  So they can write whatever they want, but I don’t have to feel what is being written.  I try to bring that sometimes to the character, because it’s fun for me to play something else. For me, I can get frustrated when I play exactly what is on the page, and I know it.  I can get caught up in that.  So, I have to say to myself, “I have to find something else to play,” or I can get frustrated as an actor.

You had such massive story in 2012, up till the spring of 2013 with the Nurses Ball.  Is it hard going from Robin’s death, and the fallout with his drug problems, and falling for Sabrina, to not having as many emotional stakes to play currently?

JASON:  I just feel there was so much depth for a year, like we talked about previously.  I absolutely trust that we will get to those moments, and there are always those middle areas where you ask yourself, “What is going on?”  And it takes awhile to build, and so it’s hard.  I was so there, and in-tune with what I was doing at work.  So to go home and have so much work to do and to learn, and then to go back and perform it, you kind of let it all purge. When there was all that heavy material, it still feels wonderful, as an actor, to go there, and to those places.  It is a really great release.  For me, of course, you always want to do that caliber of work.  I always have to try and find something interesting to do when it might not be quite as heavy, or I am not doing my job.

Courtesy/ABC

Do you think Sabrina and Patrick are working as a couple?  I know you have faced a lot of pushback, as has Teresa Castillo (Teresa) because many GH fans long for Patrick and Robin, and knowing all the while, that for all intent and purposes, Robin is alive somewhere out there!

JASON: I have not watched air shows of GH in a while.  I just don’t want to watch, because then I see the other stuff that is going on in the storylines and then it colors something different for me, and then I will look at a character differently.  Realistically, Patrick wouldn’t know that.  Most of the time as actors, we want all the information we can get about the story, and when it pertains to us.  Like if our executive producer, Frank Valentini says, “This is happening, and this happening…”  I want to know that because I like to gauge where I would like to be in a scene.  So, if I have to fall head over heels over somebody, and then have to marry them in a week, I have to be able to make that decisive choice of where it happens.  It might be the smallest choice; whether it’s Sabrina walking through the pub, or helping an old lady walk into the elevator, if that’s a moment that I can find that I can fall in love with her right there … then I need that information so I can make my character fall in love, so in a week from now that changes the characters’ life.

You just know Robin will come back into this.   Patrick, by then, might be a polygamist with the way things are going with Sabrina and Britt! (Laughs)

JASON: (Laughs) He will be married to one, and one is living in the basement.  But the door is open.  She can come up whenever she wants, but no creepy shit!

So what do you think of Patrick’s reaction to Britt’s pregnancy?  Do you want him to wake up and smell the roses and get a clue? If you watched today’s episode of General Hospital you will see some news about the sex of Britt’s unborn child.  Do you think Sabrina and Felix have meddled to far into the baby business trying to catch Britt? Do you want all the lies to come out?  Do you think Britt is carrying Dante and Lulu’s child?  Share your thoughts on our interview with Jason below!

I think that Britt is carrying Dante and Lulu’s child. I wish that Dr. Drake would get a clue. I am tired of all this manipulation that Britt and her evil mother are doing to him. I really want Sabrina and Patrick together. I think though that there will be heartache for Sabrina when and if Robin comes back to Patrick and Emma. What will probably happen is that Sabrina and Patrick will marry and she could end up pregnant when Robin returns from the dead. I have seen a storyline similar to this one on OLTL back in the… Read more »

I dont like Britt but i am learning the girl does have a consciene. especially when she told her evil mother that she was not going to kill Sabrina, she is starting to feel bad that she lied to Patrick and I think she will tell he truth or something will be wrong with the baby that it has to have blood and the truth will come out

Their entire coupling has been a complete disaster since day one, and for some reason, the ptb’s simply will not admit to this epic fail and cut their losses to correct this mess. The brightest moment of this week’s episodes (thus far….) was when Dr. Strangebourne proposed the elimination of “Nurse Santiago”…..yes, pleeeeze put us all out of this misery!!!! Every show that she appears in is ruined by her presence, and the addition of her nosy little buddy Felix makes the intrusion even more excruciating. Their constant surveillance of Patrick and his business is so childish, it is beyond… Read more »

Yep, yep and yep. Sabrina keeps getting voted least favorite character of all time. She is an interesting as bowl of Cheerios and she has no chemistry with Patrick what so ever. Making her so one dimensional and perfect has made her boring as hell. She’s like a Disney cartoon blowing fairy dust out of her butt. Clearly, Jason doesn’t see Patrick with Sabrina either and that is self evident in their scenes. Patrick just doesn’t seem to be that into Sabrina.

Hey, at least Cheerios have a purpose in life….I am at a complete loss to explain what Sabrina’s is, except to unite most loyal GH fans in complete, utter hatred for her character and storyline!!!!!

I don’t know Why Jason thinks its none of Sabrina and Felix business, I mean Briitle is living under their roof. Come on his ex or whatever you want to call her is no living under your current girlfriend roof, that’s pretty much her business.

In a way it is ber business because she did everything to make it her business like proposing for Britt to live with her and Felix (ridiculous plot point by the way..) but in another way it is FAR MORE Patrick’s business and HE should be the one sleuthing/investigating Britt’s schemes, shenanigans..not Sabrina and her sidekick.while Patrick is the passive one. JT seems above all frustrated to be so passive in this story whereas he is in the center of it, he would like to have the proactive role..On soaps it is like for the ‘damsel in distress’ roles or… Read more »

I want TPTB to see that Patrick and Sabrina just aren’t working already! They’ve tried, but they just don’t have chemistry and look awkward together, they were much better as just friends!! Can we see more of Sam and Patrick, they look great together~ now that would be HOT!

OMG – when asked at a recent fan event, Kelly Monaco said the person she crushes on the most is JT! But, she wouldn’t want to be paired with him on GH, because then she “couldn’t tongue kiss him”- and she REALLY wants to “tongue kiss” him (but then said that it would never happen because he is all “girlfriended up”). So there is REAL chemistry on Kelly’s end!

oh good lord….

thank you…. i’ve been relishing these thoughts… for so long now.

they both have so much in common…

both… soul mates…. MIA and/or dead. Jason/Robin.

both single parents.

both… languishing without their respective mates….

they are kindred spirits… that it would be heartwrenching to see these two meet in the middle and see two actors playing the heck out of their parts…

Patrick needs to get a clue and find Robin and get away from BOTH losers. Robin belongs with her husband and child. Not interested in the forced propped immature nurse Sabrina. I don’t anything about her no matter what RC does to force her on viewers. That is ROBINs HUSBAND AND CHILD not anyone else. I don’t want Robin coming back and getting screwed by these writers again. Reunite Scrubs and Emma. Work with Kimberly’s schedule like they were supposed to do from day one. Robin doesn’t need to be on all the time even part time would work. I… Read more »

The problem..the REAL problem is not Robin’s absence..imho.. it is just that this Patrick/Sabrina pairing doesn’t work and this story is totally a boring, contrived plot point and cliche mess.. If they find the right gal (and actress..chemistry need to be here) and a good story for Pat everything would be fine..from this interview..i am pretty sure JT would agree with me…

they are working with kimberly.you dont see her there,do you? they are giving her what she asked for.sabrina is far from an immature ,child nurse and fits well with patrick.

Jill
Guest

Judith is absolutely right while Donna is absolutely wrong–Sabrina is a little immature busy body who is devoid of conflict–I have had paper dolls with more life in them. Since Sabrina is one of the most hated GH characters of all time, I don’t see her with Patrick in the long run and I doubt they are going to renew her contract either. Sabrina and Patrick are a bust.

Finally! Someone who likes Patrick with Sabrina! I think the months of him being clueless to her crushing hard on him. We waited so long for the makeover. She and Emma are so sweet! For Patrick this relationship is not just about Patrick, but it is about the three of them. I hope they will stay together and get stronger.

Jennifer

Patrick needs to wake up and see that Britt is lying about the unborn baby I believe that Britt is carrying Dante and Lulu Baby it would be a great storyline to have Robin come back and Patrick have marry Sabrina and she was having his child and to watch Patrick be in love with both ladies to see what he would about both ladies. Can’t wait till Patrick find out the truth That the baby not his.

Wendy
Guest
Wendy

JT looks miserable on screen. Patrick and Sabrina are a major fail. So, even taking into account Britt is lying, at least Patrick seems awake with her. And really, this is what the story should have been: Patrick having fallen for Britt, unaware of her parentage.

Then Robin returns only to find her husband is with the daughter of her parents’ arch enemy.

Sabrina is a waste and is pointless, and was never needed here.

Emma
Guest
Emma

I agree Jason does look miserable onscreen. He has no fire with the Sabrina actress. It’s sad that he never gets any material beyond that bland & boring Sabrina. I remember when he came on, he was great from day one. That actor no longer exists on GH. He’s sleeping through his scenes.

judith
Guest
judith

Yep this idea would have been more interesting..still the Patrick/Britt option is not much more interesting as we saw at the beginning of the story.. i don’t know.. another female character would have just been better (Sam, Lulu, Maxie, Liz, another gal..take your pick all just better than these two Sab/Brit ladies) although i agree the idea of him falling for the daughter of his love’s parents worst enemy is really soapy.

ROBIN is who Patrick should be with. There is not one woman on GH I would want to see him with. NONE of them can compare to Robin.

It is a soap, Patrick can’t stay a monk all his life because Robin disappeared and the actress playing her left ! Get real..even in real life people don’t stop living (well the majority) when their significant others are gone. Patrick should just be with an interesting character in an interesting and exiting story, that is all.

I want all the lies to come out. I love Sabrina and Felix,but Patrick should be the one figuring all this out. He is a smart man and he sure hasn’t acted smart where Brit is concerned. I’m glad someone is investigating it because he isn’t doing anything. I hope Sabrina/Teresa gets to stay on the show even after Kimberly finally decides to return. She and Felix have a great relationship and I am sure the writers can give them another story. I am tired of waiting for Robin, however. I’m glad Patrick still has a story.

I agree with you. I’m getting sick of the whole thing, it has been going on for so long, that it is time it stopped. I feel the same way with the Maxie story too. Maxie should tell the truth and be able to keep her baby, that you can tell she wants to keep. Then they should figure out that Brit is carrying lulu and Dante’s baby, and they get to keep that baby. Also do not take three weeks to have it all happen. Then PPPlease move on to another story line. When things are dragged out for… Read more »

If someone writes some condescending reply with this gist I won’t hesitate to respond back in kind, only not-so. I would love to watch GH again. I think I’d even teeter on being ok with being a fan again. But I simply will not turn back on until I know that Patrick will lay eyes on Robin and they can be a family.

I’m not advocating for anyone to stop watching. I said nothing of the sort. After I was burned so badly time after time in the Guza/Phelps era, my last remaining thread holding me to GH was Scrubs, and they held onto me good. Yes now there are more likeable reasons to watch again, but that’s what the power of the couple did to me. I was more a fan of the couple by 2005-2012 than the show itself, so there’s no part of me that feels compelled to tune back in again. I will not even toy with the idea… Read more »

I don’t understand how a whole show can depend on one couple. I like Patrick and Robin, too but it isn’t the Robin show. The show must go on. Thank God it is… Read more »

No. I DO know I am NOT a fan of the show. I turned in that card YEARS ago and have never asked for it back. Good for you. You still enjoy and watch. I’m not asking you or anyone else to stop. Please read my posts. Your arguments in response to me are incongruent with what I’m actually saying. The only reason they had my viewership at all during the last Guza years/short Wolfe era was because of the couple. So yes, MY show depended on ONE couple. Like it or not, understand it or not.

Not that I owe you an explanation, but knowing what’s happening because I come across articles, headlines, reviews, comments by fans and youtubing clips knowing they will involve Robin/Patrick/Emma is NOT the same thing as committing one hour of my life every day at the same hour to watch firsthand. Coming across information ≠ watching the show. I’m more or less abreast of what’s happening with those 3 whether I watch or not because I have some interest still, but I haven’t followed Patrick’s debacle with Sabrina or Britt, or know what’s happening with the OLTL 3, or any other… Read more »

Jules, totally get your point–I feel exactly the same way. And I too get tired of the plaintiff wail,”If you no longer watch the show, how do you know it’s horrible?” The answer is as you said, you read GH fan’s complaints, articles and maybe you tune in from time to time just to reaffirm that it’s still awful. That’s what I do, anyway.

Thanks Sarah! I hear it all the time! I may have never in my life watched an episode of the Real Housewives of Whatever, but if I go on entertainment or gossip sites (which I have been known to do), I will learn about their shenanigans through osmosis whether I intended to learn about them or not. The same goes for soaps, where I visit multiple sites to get information, read interviews etc and just naturally pick things up. Is that really difficult to understand, or is just much easier for people to think “we’re lying” about not watching when… Read more »

I think he’s reaction to her pregnancy has been non-existent . Only in the last few episodes has he shown any kind of feelings towards this baby. He has been sleep walking through this storyline so far. I certainly see why he would think/want Patrick to let Sabrina/Felix know to mind their own business. He has accepted this baby as his own and other than Sabrina assuming Britt is up to mischief, there is really nothing showing their motivation for trying to catch Britt in a lie. But on the other side of the coin, Patrick has asked Sabrina to… Read more »

His thoughts are pretty clear, he has no interest in Purina or Patrick being turned into a shell of his former self for a newbie he has zero chemistry with. You couldn’t get the man to shut up about his love for Scrubs & KMc. Read between the lines, it ain’t that hard. LOL!

I think Jason fully understands the scope of the fans reaction regarding Sabrina or as I like to call her the #DisneyPrincess but chooses to be diplomatic which speaks volumes to me where his opinion lies. He understands that his character is being under utilized and being thrust into a storyline which makes no sense what so ever.

Jason never seems to want to talk about his Purina pairing. He goes out of his way to avoid answering or even talking about them.

Great interview Michael! I thought one of the more interesting answers was about why he doesn’t watch the show. I actually never thought about it that way. He can’t really answer all the questions about his castmates/characters. I thought he did the best he could. Yes… agree the baby thing needs to end soon. Of course I would rather have Patrick with Robin… but Sabrina is doing a fine job in the mean time and yes she will be the casualty.

Kimberly has said time and time again that she’s ready to come back. Look at her Twitter and video posts on Instagram. You can even see a video that MF posted from the Paley Center event.

Sabrina is such a boring chemless drag of a character. Even Jason can see that. It’s why he talks so much about Britt and the baby.

I wouldn’t be to confident in that when it comes to Ron. If Robin was here she would be in a triangle with Sabrina just like all the other couples on this show, Luke/Laura/Scotty, Laura/Luke/Tracy, Anna/Duke/Dr. O, Patrick/Brina/Britt, Sam/Silas/Ava, Connie/Sonny/Olivia, Michael/Kiki/Morgan, Ellie/Spinelli/Maxie, Molly/TJ/Taylor/Rafe, Nick/Liz/AJ, AJ/Carly/Liz…………., so far the only couple who is not tangled in a web is Lante thanks to the removal of Milo/Stavros…..RC doesn’t do romance,he like them messy….

Either way, if she were there, we would have a totally different story and I doubt there would be a love triangle, but maybe so. There has to be some drama. One good thing is that Brit and her mom were introduced.

Interesting it’s like Jason doesn’t really care for the Sabrina/Patrick pairing or having Sabrina and Felix all up in Patrick’s business, seems like he really would love for Kimberly to return

Thank God JT realizes that his character has been a non-presence in this Disney fairy tale since day one.

I’m glad he also realizes that Felix and Sabrina are completely out of line. Those two losers should be hanging out with Morgan and Kiki in the wading pool, because they are two of the most immature, tedious characters I’ve seen in a very long time.

Soooo true!!! Whenever one of those annoying characters is on, I pray that they will soon be written out….particularly Sabrina and Felix. They have been useless since their debut, and really are a waste of space. Ditto for Taylor, TJ and Shawn. It’s time for all of them to go….would like to see Morgan leave as well, but alas, we are probably stuck with his whiny, pathetic, self-centered personality for quite awhile. Kiki honestly has yet to make her mark…..thus far she has only served as an object of desire for the Corinthos Bros and a cashcow for her mother…..she… Read more »

OMG – you just described KA’s former character on OLTL, Starr Manning! High maintenance, well-dressed and blond. There are a lot of OLTL fans who wish she would go back to Llanview and resume her role as Todd and Blair Manning’s daughter.

I like that Jason Thompson said in defense of his character…. “at the end of the day”…. Patrick cares about the baby… and that it’s really none of Sabrina and Felix business. you know… if I had that busybody mixing in with my relationship… ie: felix… i’d bop him some and tell him … i’ve had it… would never have that in my relationship… it must boggle JT’ some.. that his character has to act this…. i laughed at your comment… ie: sabrina and felix belong in the kiddie pool…. with the most boring story of the summer…. kiki, michael,… Read more »

@kat….Close but not EXACTLY. Maybe a hybrid, a happy medium between the charmless, unkempt Kiki and the blander but much superior Starr???? I feel sorry for KA being burdened with her current GH character, she’s just not likeable, attractive or well-developed. It’s really not the actress’s fault, as I don’t see her as having been handed much to work with. The fact that Cartini is already changing the nature of her biological makeup indicates that another direction may be in the works for “Kiki,” perhaps that was the intention all along, just enough of a departure from Starr to permanently… Read more »

Britt is definitely carrying Dante and Lulu’s baby. (A boy for the Falconieri’s!)

I really liked the beginning of the Patrick & Sabrina story – but once they actually ‘got together’ they fizzled. I like their friendship better. And the baby really is none of Sabrina or Felix’s business – but I am SO glad they’re sticking their noses there anyway!

And Jason…you are an actor – so even if you don’t like where the story is going, you still have to play it as well as you can.

I don’t want Patrick to be a waste of a man, I want all the lies to come out, I want Patrick to get ENGAGED to Classy Lady Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), and BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR FOR 2014 Daytime Emmys: Felix DuBois (Marc Samuel) but, at the end of the day RATING MAKES THE DECISION.

Classy Lady Sabrina? Ba ha ha!
It’s clear the Patrick/Sabrina storyine is not working but it’s not working because their love story was badly told and the two actors have no chemistry. Sabrina was thrown at the viewers with no introduction, not character build up and we were expected to deeply care about her. Most viewers did not care about this Disney cartoon come to life.

OH! TPTB…. this is the time for Jason Thompson’ to redeem his character, for HIS Fans… and believe me… he has so many. course, it may be too late… but… knowing that GH films only 6 weeks…. him… getting back with Britt… would give Patrick back…. somewhat… at least showing the Patrick of old. back to his single wanton lustful, partyboy, i’m single… and down for my own needs…. you know… he just gets tired… of the safe Sabrina…. and Britt offers some sexual distraction… and reminds him… ie: the child…. the son… he thinks is his… of his former… Read more »

Euh No, Patrick being totally gullible and falling even more he already does for all Britt’s schemes and lies would not be great either for the character, as for the ‘lust’ ‘sexual’ factor sorry but although Britt is the vixen, schemer in this story the chemistry between Patrick and Britt is flat..almost in the same level as with safe and nice princess Sabrina..so NO THANK YOU for your scenario.

I love this interview and I love Jason Thompson’s replies, even if some didn’t appreciate them. The truth is his storyline SUCKS and he’s being honest (in a diplomatic way) about it. Sabrina is a flat character. I’m sure the actress is nice, but she’s one of the more boring characters to ever be on screen. I love Patrick and was deeply invested in his story, even after Robin’s “death”. But his scenes with Sabrina and Felix and even sometimes Britt make me wanna tune out. His scenes with Robin, of course, were great. But to stay int he present,… Read more »

When it comes to knowing what’s going on around him, Patrick has all the sense and awareness of a drugged up mannequinn. An 8 year old could pull the wool over his eyes quite easily. He just doesn’t see the whole picture which makes this story and other GH plots very frustrating to watch. Patrick is a very likeable character, but his stupidity really ruins him.

As far as his chemestry with Sabrina goes, I feel there is none. However, in my opinion, Sabrina is a very likeable character!

I believe that Britt is carrying LuLu and Dante baby not Patrick – this way Patrick can have a life with Sabrina – they are great together.

Gregory Harrison Is The New Gregory Chase On General Hospital

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”

TV fans remember Gregory from the hit series Trapper John M.D., then later on Falcon Crest, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill and more.  He also has frequently appeared in Lifetime and Hallmark Channel movies most recently.

So, what do you think about the Gregory Chase recast with Gregory Harrison? Intrigued? Comment below.
