General Hospital's Nancy Lee Grahn and William deVry Talk JULEXIS!

The General Hospital Julexis Army has been an amazing phenomenon on social media! And for the first time in years Daytime Emmy winner Nancy Lee Grahn has a love interest for Alexis that just may stick and have some longevity thanks to the sexy and talented William deVry who has made mobster Julian Jerome the complex love interest for the oh-so-smart Ms. Davis!

TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan sat won with Nancy and William to get their thoughts on all things Julexis and the making of this coupling.

From Alexis choice in bad boys, to if they would want their characters to ever get married, to prepping for those sex scenes, the actors offer their thoughts as you might expect with their witty and oh-so-cute banter.  Here are a few excerpts below!

William and Nancy on becoming a true GH supercouple, something that has not happened for Nancy since her time on Santa Barbara, and never for William in his daytime career:   deVry: I didn’t get an opportunity to do much of anything as Storm on The Bold and the Beautiful.  A couple of good stories, but no love interest. And my only love interest on All My Children, before the big regime change, was Kendall. She and Michael Cambias were on their way to becoming a really strong couple but that literally changed inside of three days. Megan McTavish took over as head writer and splintered them as a couple. Suddenly, I was out of there. Cambias was made irredeemable which, back then, was death. It’s not that way on soaps anymore — certainly not on GH.   Grahn: I haven’t had this happen to me in years…the last time that was even close was when Alexis was with Sonny. Sexis! And also there was Rexis. Thank God, [executive producer] Frank Valentini stopped my menopause story. Before this regime came along, there was no effort being made to write Alexis as a sexual being. She was swimming in some very frigid waters.

Nancy on the subject of how for years the soaps seem to want to sent the message that love on the air is only for the young, while the veteran characters rarely hit the sack:  “It’s never been true! Brian Frons and the previous regime at ABC Daytime only wanted youth, youth, youth. And our show was going down the toilet. But now we have Vicki Dummer and Nathan Varni at the network, and Frank and Ron at the show, and they don’t judge that way. Now there’s much more even representation. I’ve never worked on any show with so many women in my age range. It’s incredible. Back when Frons was running things, it was only Jane Elliot and me and they were ignoring us. We were the original walking dead,”

Are Julexis the sexiest couple on daytime?  What do you hope happens next to Alexis and Julian?  If they don’t get married, and if he truly gets out of the mob, what complications do you anticipate along the way?  And, do soaps send the wrong message that hot sex is only for the young?  Weigh-in!

I love this couple. Nancy and Will have a chemistry that I haven’t seen in a long time. And yes, soaps telling people over the age of 40 that they aren’t sexy is not only wrong, it’s stupid. YAY for GH finally getting it right.

I love this couple too and they better not screw it up by splitting them its one of the strong points of gh right now.they are both super hot and great on screen.as far as only being sexy when youre young soo not true I think people have true sexiness at an older age we are more experienced and it comes more naturally than when your young and insecure. so go GH remind the entertainment world that that some people age like fine wine!

Yeah, they’re very cute together. What adds to the fun is that they both get on social media all the time and chat with the fans. I’ve kinda gotten to know who they are as real people. BUT he’s gonna break her heart … darn bad boys!

Most exciting, sexy 😉 and downright soapy couple in a long time! As for the youth obsession I think the ratings bore out the fallacy in that thinking. To ignore the power of Julexis would be lunacy – this fell into your laps GH – don’t blow it.

Hey, I am all for fifty somethings (albeit dVry is a good decade younger than NLG) having a passionate romance but there is a huge ick factor for me with this couple. Alexis keeps playing the same role over and over–the buttoned up Harvard Law School girl finally gives into the bad boy. I hear Madonna singing “Like Virgin” over and over and watching Alexis act like this is her very first time is Ground Hog Day for me. Hey, I knew Alexis before she was a virgin. And what I really hate to see is Alexis allowing her hormones… Read more »

Thank you, Harry….glad to know that I’m not the only one to find this mismatched couple off-putting or Alexis’s seemingly constant compulsion to display her middle-aged mammaries to be distasteful and unnecessary! Additionally, I detect no heat between “Julexis”….as a matter of fact, Julian has far more chemistry with his sister and daughter!!! He just seems to be there in quiet detachment, simply along for the “ride” while Ms. Davis salivates and leaves her considerable gob hanging agape in awe for the man. It’s all rather pathetic and embarrassing!

I still watch GH but its just not too interesting at the moment…its nice to see couples over 40 but i know Alexis and Julian will break up…hopefully Alexis and Kevin will briefly date so Lucy will realize how foolish she was to cheat on doc for the pillsbury doughboy who kind of reminds me more of Heat Meiser from that old christmas movie(4get name)…lol

Pillsbury Doughboy? HA! I tuned in a month ago and said, ‘When did Ned Beatty join the cast?’
I am all for couples over fifty having a torrid affair, but can they please act like grown up?
The tiny tot romantic triangle with Spencer, Emma and Cameron involves characters who act like they’re adults while adults act like children. Ron’s universe is an inverted universe of madness.

The kiddie triangle is so lame…the children on GH are fine little actors and i wish their talents were put to better use by having them act like real children…im so spoiled by Britians Coronation Street with their character driven plots and close to real life drama where adults act like adults and children act like children that i almost feel like im watching real people that i know and i so much wish our soaps would take lessons from the British and produce and write our shows the way they do theirs!!!

I hope Ron doesn’t turn them..
I can’t stomach lovey dovey phony couples .

I hope Julian nevers gets all phony mushy and that they just remain to be hot sexy and bringing it on..

@Harry….Again, you have nailed it!!!! I read yesterday’s recaps as including a foreshadowed coupling between Bobbie and Scotty…..another over-the-hill pair I have no interest in viewing in flagrante delicto….just the thought of those two together makes me lose my lunch! (Ditto for Lucy and her extramarital shenanigans!) I applaud the notion of adult love stories, but they should be dignified and sophisticated….and with appealing parties!!!! At the moment, Anna is the only one who can pull it off convincingly…just wish Robert were there as the other half of the equation! Or Rick Springfield/ Jack Wagner…..(Although I was initially gratified to… Read more »

Being just a little over 40 myself it is sooo great to see a hot couple not in their teens or 20 somethings…..I love Julexis..If the writers keep this couple in somewhat good standing with each other I think it could be a winner…two good actors who are actually grown ups that still have some issues though..if TV guide is interviewing William & Nancy there has definitely been some impact on the audience…keep up the good work..sorry people I am not a hater!!

WHY do people use the unwieldy moniker Julexis? My name for them is wittier…fun nier and much more clever. Lets make it catch on and ditch the Julexis. My name for them is Alian. (Alexis +Julian). Its pronounced like alien. Isn’t that better?? Thank you.

I agree – I think that started with Brad and Jennifer – anyhow years ago – its old – use peoples real names. By the way – love the couple and want them to stay together. Have always liked Alexis’ character and Julian is quite H-O-T if I might say.

We all know that Alexis is incapable of a lasting relationship no matter who she is paired with. That is her major character flaw. I would imagine it had something to do with seeing her own mother have her throat slit by the vindictive Helena Cassadine. Being raised after that with Stefan and Mama Cassadine’s favorite son Stavros who later kidnapped, married and impregnated Laura, had to have had some major and lasting negative effects on Alexis. I just don’t think Alexis will ever find any permanent happiness with anyone. I think Alexis and Julian make a lovely pair, but… Read more »

well sad to say, but-
Nobody will ever find permanent happiness .. not in a soap, it is not allowed and would be a very rare happening..
Couples are doomed from their first kiss to break up, it is the way of the soaps lol ..

It’s best to skip the all romance and boring stuff and just get to the sex being it is all going to circle the drain anyways, no need to get all involved…

The reason I love this couple Alexis & Julian..
They are not sappy, cuddly wuddly, gooey, mushy, they are HOT and get to it ..
They have the magic chem and use it..
they get it going hot sexy and sexy ..

I love these two together. GH FINALLY looked at what Y&R does and tells stories for people who are not in high school or college! People over the age of forty do fall in love, you know! Secondly, one of the best things GH ever did was make Alexis Sam’s mother. Now with Julian they make a nice family together with good story line possibilities.

Absolutely !!!!!! A mom & dad (grandma & grandpa) and kids – how unique! Hope it sticks – Let them be the super couple!!! Sonny can’t seem to stick with anyone – Luke is WHO KNOWS???? We need at least one stable couple.

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
