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!

Love your comment rachis I agree with you 100 percent! Julexis makes my day, I miss them so much and can’t wait to see them reunited, can’t be soon enough for me!!!

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.

jimh(leave it beaver)

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.

WATCH: The Cast of ‘Studio City’ Talk On the Latest Five Episodes & The Making of the Critically-Acclaimed Digital Drama

It’s one of the most talked about digital dramas out there, with a look and feel all its own, containing smart, witty, and dramatic plots and dialogue, and stellar performances abound.

In Amazon Prime’s Studio City, the story about life on a soap in front of the camera juxtaposed with the often harsh reality of life behind the scenes, will have any fan of the genre getting a kick out of some of the very familiar soap tropes contained within balanced with the five-hankie moments throughout  And now, Studio City has dropped their latest five episodes picking the story back up from where it left off.

Michael Fairman chatted with the cast of Studio City in his latest interview for The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube. Those taking part in this virtual conversation included: Sean Kanan (Sam), Sarah Joy Brown (Laurie), Tristan Rogers (Doc), Carolyn Hennesy (Gloria), Scott Turner Schofield (Max), Anna Maria Horsford (Jolene), and Justin Torkildesn (Jacob).  Ronn Moss, who also appears in the series playing a version of himself, was filming a movie during the scheduling of this chat, but his presence is felt when some hilarious moments featuring him and Sean Kanan were discussed.

Soap fans know these actors very well.  Kanan, Brown, Hennesy and Rogers have all, or are presently appearing, on General Hospital.  B&B fans recognize Torkilden, Horsford, Moss, and Schofield along with Kanan from their work on the CBS Daytime drama.

Getting a show up and running and then taped during the Covid-19 pandemic is no easy task as Kanan shared in the group interview.  As well, Anna Maria Horsford and Sarah Joy Brown share how they came to their parts and the rapid-fire pace in which their scenes were shot.  Tristan Rogers, who won a Daytime Emmy last year for his performance as Doc, gives another heartbreaking turn, and reveals his thoughts on the work he did, plus shares his remembrances of his late friend and GH co-star, John Reilly.

Scott Turner Schofield talks about how Sean and his wife Michele Kanan, two of the creators of the show, have given him and the transgender community a space with Max’s storyline in Studio City.  GH favorite, Carolyn Hennesy shares how she crafted her role of Gloria, the executive producer, after Jill Farren Phelps, and Daytime Emmy winner Justin Torkildsen shares how he wound up with a part in the digital drama and the scenes he shares with Hennesy.

You can check out the full Studio City cast interview below.  Then let us know, have you checked out the series? What have been your favorite moments and performances in it? Let us know in the comment section.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

Courtesy/ABC

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
