General Hospital's Nancy Lee Grahn & William deVry Video Interview: Julexis, Sex Scenes, and GH Now!

Photo Credit: MF Soaps Inc.

That lusty Port Charles duo, Julian Jerome and Alexis Davis, just can’t seem to fight the attraction they have for each other no matter how hard one of them may try …  especially the legal eagle!

Now, with Julian in Pentonville along with his arch nemesis Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), the Fluke (Tony Geary)  story unraveling, and Alexis caught between the man she has the “hots” for and the law, it was the perfect time to sit down for a chitchat with the actors who bring the couple known as “Julexis” to life!

On-Air On-Soaps sat down this past week with Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) and William deVry (Julian) at the ABC TCA Winter Press Tour to get the low down on those now infamous sex scenes, where they see their on-screen love story going from here, how they shed a tear in emotional scenes and prepare for them, and what if  … Alexis and Julian were to go on the run!  And, we discuss with Nancy her new digital series on ABC.com, GH Now! which just had its online premiere one week ago with the posting of its first three episodes.  We discuss the vignettes involving Nancy and the GH cast, the creation of it, Nancy’s hopes for it, and have some inside fun with it!

Later in the video when discussing how Alexis feels towards Julian, Nancy responded; “He’s got Alexis all sexed-up now!”  When discussing kissing William as Julian, Nancy called it, “Smoldering!”

In terms of what is on the horizon for Julexis, William revealed, “I think there is some good stuff coming up, and some some curve balls coming our way, but I think Julexis fans will have some things to chew off the bone … let’s put it that way.”   In terms of how other story can impact the duo, deVry commented, “We have an interesting thing with Sonny in state prison right now …. and there is something that comes up with Sonny that I think is ingenious,  and so we need something ingenious to allow us to come back to Port Charles.”

Watch Nancy and Will chat with Michael Fairman after the jump! Then let us know what was your favorite part of the conversation? And, what do you think should happen next in the love story of Julexis? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

What works…Julian and Olivia…that pairing made me actually like them as i was getting bored with each character…let Alexis take a cold shower…or give her to Scotty…same thing either way(but i did notice that Alexis and Scotty do have some on screen chemistry)…lol

lol
think big jimh !
Julian and Alexis are not married, engaged, or even going steady..
Julian can be with both Olivia and Alexes.. He is a bachelor, afteral..
Gotta let some of the soap men be casanovias or some such thing..

Now that he is prison it looks like he’s also falling for Sonny…lol

I, actually liked the Julian and Olivia pairing, too. I was surprised, I saw something magical between the two actors during that new year’s romp.

Shay
Shay

I’m with you, Jeremy….”Julivia” is a fun, fresh and fabulous coupling…an unexpected delight! I’m still hoping for a baby to result from their New Year’s canoodle session …that would just be the icing on the cake!!!! (Plus what a laugh riot for Julian to explain that one to his new “bestie,” Sonny…..Come to think of it, there could be an entire episode built around the “locker room talk” of those two mafiosos discussing their conquests….especially the ones that they’ve shared! Oh, and how about Sonny impregnating Jerome’s daughter, Sam? LOL…. )

Jeremy
Jeremy

hey Shay, I like it. “Julivia”…sounds so much hotter than Julexias (spelling?). Hopefully we’ll see more between Olivia and Julian before Lisa goes off to have her baby. The hookup between them, helped me want to see more of Olivia. What else?…

Shay
Shay

Thanks, Jeremy!!!! I like the “Julivia” tag, too….it’s zingy and cool, which perfectly fits this exciting couple. I really hope there is a further exploration of those two together…..it’s time for Julian to be with a more youthful and appealing, less tortured type…Olivia definitely fills that bill! Furthermore, I’m ready for some mixing-up of other status quo couples…. the usual pairings on GH have become so banal….Patrick and Sam are a good start, although it seems they may be short-lived. I liked Jake and Liz, as well, as her thing with Rick really never worked for me. As for Carly, who in Port Charles has the right stuff to handle her? How about Shawn? If he’s tough enough to be Sonny’s enforcer, he should be able to take on Ms. Jacks! And he’s had combat experience, so that’s a plus for anyone when it comes to dealing with Carly! (I also could have seen her with Julian awhile back….quite frankly, when it comes to Mr. Jerome, I would consider “ABA”….anybody but Alexis…to be preferable!)

Jeremy
Jeremy

hey again, Shay-man, I too, like Jason with Liz, though, I’m torn because for chemistry sake… I’ve always favored the Liz and Rick pairing. For me, Sam and Patrick, I’m still not feeling it…Patrick should play the field. Right now, I think Carly needs to focus on her relationships with her children, Michael and Morgan and the bratty, Josslyn. Besides, Carly had a brief thing with Shawn a few years back. More importantly, I’m intrigued who Ava may be paired up upon her release from prison. Silas, Morgan, again… 🙂
or…the new Sloane?

Shay
Shay

Jeremy….You say you’re not feeling Sam and Patrick…not even today???? I find their pairing to be very easy and natural….although I also liked Ms. Morgan with Silas, too. (KM seems to work well with all of her leading men!)….As for Patrick, as long as they keep him as far away from Sappy as possible, then I’m happy….they were an absolute disaster!!! He was good with Britt—I so miss that girl!—-and initially I was rooting for him to be with Liz after he thought Robin had died. However, I don’t know that he should ever return to his “player” days….still, it will be interesting to see what becomes of him after the expected fallout with Sam and the soon-to-be-revealed Jason. You are so right when you say that Carly should be concentrating on her children, especially since she always acts as though she is “Mother of the Year,” but I simply cannot fathom that woman without a man for very long….perhaps she will rekindle things with Shawn once they kill off Jordan???? Carly needs someone physically imposing enough to keep her in line, instead of the diminutive don or another quirky choice like Franco. To my way of thinking, Shawn could do that in a manner that no one has since Jax. To be candid, I’ve never been a Rick fan, so no matter who he is coupled with I’m not on board….guy just creeps me out!!!! (Sorry about that…LOL)…..And what to do with Silas???? (Perhaps pair him with Anna? They both have a cool, contemporary vibe….) I feel bad that he has lost Sam…they clicked pretty well….yet I’ve never been able to envision him with Ava…even back in the day! (Nor Nina either, for that matter….) And poor Morgan…..if Kiki is indeed leaving town—with KA’s departure—-then I suppose he shall one day reunite with Ava. Since news of the Sloane recast, I don’t know what to think about that character’s romantic possibilities…I like the current “Sloane Ranger,” so I’m not at all enthused about the replacement.

Jeremy
Jeremy

Shay-man, you always give me a lot of good things to think about!
For me, I felt more connection & chemistry with Sam (KM) & Silas (ME). I did watch today’s episode… and, even though Sam & Patrick made love, I’m not sold yet…on this pairing. As a couple, I feel like they are too safe. Yeah, I miss firecracker, Britt, too. As for Carly, I did like her with Shawn years ago during their brief romance, however, gosh…not sure how and what new Sloane will be about, perhaps if new Sloane isn’t into Anna, maybe he can be matched up with Carly?

I love Olivia with Julian! I’m so tired of Alexis giving him the run around! She knows what he does for a living! Give Olivia a chance! She deserves it! Not that it matters Ron Carlivaiti always ruins the great couples! Just look at Robin and Patrick! He’s turned the character into someone the fans don’t know or even like anymore!!!

Molly Ryan
Molly Ryan

I think Ron has ruined GH! He’s changed the history of the characters and the show! His s/l are long and drawn out! Oh and so boring! I’d rather GH be canceled then continue going on the way it is! I’ve watched since 7th grade and I don’t care to watch it anymore!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Molly, here is some friendly advice…if you dont like GH and dont want to watch anymore, simply turn it off but dont wish for its cancellation…it would put hundreds out of work…plus there are others who enjoy it still…it may be cancelled one day but let some of us be able to watch while we can still can…i know it can be a better show but right now moments still are enjoyable and ill continue to support it and the genre until they are all gone or i croak…ribbit…lol…i can wait for the latter…lol

Molly Ryan
Molly Ryan

Your right although I’m unhappy with GH and the writer’s I shouldn’t wish for its cancellation and I don’t want it cancelled! I just want quality writing again and character’s not to have such drastic changes! Btw I don’t watch GH anymore! I stopped watching in November! I hope it improves so I can enjoy it again!

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I want the quality writing again too…i see sprinkles of it here and there…the show lacks a good hero and herione team…a team we can cheer for and thats whats missing here…GH is overrun by too many villians!!!

Molly Ryan
Molly Ryan

I agree! Anna and the PC Police Dept have been made to look incompetent! Another problem I have! The drastic change in Anna! She’s always been a smart brave intelligent woman! She hasn’t a clue that Robin’s in trouble! The real Anna would’ve known something was up immediately! Also the way Dr O speaks to her! Anna would never let anyone push her around like that! Another complete character change! The writer’s R rewriting the history and the character portrayals! I think they need to go back and watch tapes of the old GH when it was at its best!!!

su0000
su0000

wow!
Julian and Alexs are electrifying!
after their hot moments I’d think they both would need a cold shower!
As said;
”’there is something that comes up with Sonny that I think is ingenious, and so we need something ingenious to allow us to come back to Port Charles.””
//
RC, FV and team are indeed ingenious..
they do keep us wondering and trying to solve the puzzles.. and always the shocker..
I am excited to see how RC and team will bring ‘all’ out of prison..
that will be a good one!!!

Looking forward to more heat from from the burning couple- Julian and Alexes..
I really like the way the couples are written on GH.. they are hot and always intriguing and never boring, and that is a good thing to be out of the traditional soap couple bore me to death with their love problems junko.
GH writes its’ couples captivating to entertain me, I like that..

I also like Alexis and Julian, but their love is new and they expect each other. to be loyal to the other. I think at times they are frightened of commitment. I believe that Alexis has been hurt and if Julian was in her life long ago, that the hurt they went through is not the hurt they want to live with again. Olivia is in love with Sonny, Ned and Julian ,give me a break. I like Olivia, but with someone else that loves her and is not using her.

I watch the entire show, but find when Julexis is not on for a long time, it is hard for me to watch. Let us hope that this couple will be the supercouple for General hospital. They sizzle and have so much chemistry I also like Bobby,
Dante and Lulu, Luke is getting to me either way. I was hoping for big things with this General Hospital 2015 and will not give up quite yet. I suppose if Nancy is always on it, they will not lose me as a viewer. Nancy has grown as an actress and I do really like William Avey Shirley

I love Julexis. What I saw that was “magical” was that hot fantasy sequence on Jan. 5! Wow! I really look forward to where their story takes them next! Alexis doesn’t need a cold shower, she’s getting her freak on more than the rest of the town combined b/c it leads to great ratings! Looking forward to that great February Sweeps month!

Love Will DeVry (Julian) and Nancy Lee Grahn(Alexis) together, they are the most captivating, hottest, soap couple on any soap. Something I forget am watching a soap when watching these two. Chemistry oh boy do they have it. Great interview, love their bantering back and forward. Love how Will complements his acting partner (Nancy Lee Grahn)

What you have here are two actors who truly enjoy working together and it translates onscreen. The chemistry between these two is organic and electrifying. The fantasy scenes on the 1/5 were smokin hot and I feel like I’m watching a real life couple. Nothing seems forced when it comes to their scenes. This couple brought me back to GH. I’m looking forward to thier reunion. I hope to see them
On my screen for many years to come. So much storyline potential. I hope to see it play out, they will rock any story they are given.

Anna

Thank you! It was a delighful interview I liked it a lot. It was really amuzing! Both Will and Nancy are charming, adorable and fun! Great to hear that interesting things are coming for Alexis and Julian! They have a messy, complicated, layred relationship and magnetic chemistry!!!! There is something so very special about this pair. They are hot and tender, stubborn and loving and never dissappoint viewers with boring! NLG and WDV deliver great perfomances on screen.
Way to go Julexis! Looking forward to February!

Of course living in Canada, I cannot see the whole video, but, I do love Nancy and Will
playing Julian and Alexis. They are a mature couple, but at times his bad side comes out when she hurts him. He is a maverick and a great actor. I also think and have always thought Nancy is a great actress. She has grown so much as an actress to me. Juliexis are well liked in this area of Canada. I just want to be able to get General Hospital/Now. I try and read all of the shows that are put in text online. I just hope I live long enough to see these couple get together. Shirley

Loved the interview! Wil and Nancy are so cute together and clearly enjoy their partnership. I’m very excited for what’s to come for Julexis! Looking forward to a reunion for the hottest duo in daytime! Julexis have been apart far too long now. Whatever curves are coming their way in the future, I hope they face them together as a couple. Thanks for a great interview! Wil and Nancy are the best and always so good to their fans. Can’t wait for more amazing Julexis scenes to hit the screen! They keep me tuning in to GH.

Julian and Alexis are lightning in a bottle – captured it electrifies. Nancy and Will have amazing chemistry as actors but you can see from this interview there is a great friendship that underscores it. I love Julexis because they are compelling, messy, sexy, hot and every scene feels like I’m watching a real couple tackle their life together – only with odd story obstacles. You don’t see that very often any longer on soaps. Thank you for the interview!

Jenn

Great interview! It’s nice to see Wil and Nancy’s playful side. They clearly like working together. As a fan, I enjoy how much they seem to appreciate each other.

These two are great both on screen and off. They smolder and shine! I can’t wait to see what happens next for Julian and Alexis on GH. They have a fun “love conquers all” kind of feel to their relationship. I am excited for their journey.

Thank you Michael for this fabulous interview! I love Julexis like I’ve never loved a soap couple before. Julian & Alexis may have chemistry with others but together that chemistry trancends into something magical! They’re passionate, sexy, intense, playful! ? There’s tons of story to be told! The Jan 5th fantasy scene blew everyone else out of the water! Will & Nancy are pure GOLD together.

Awesome interview Michael! We haven’t seen a couple like this since Luke and Laura! Nancy Lee and William are fun, sweet, exciting, unpredictable, sexy and gorgeous on the eyes as #Julexis. Your eyes are glued to the tv screen when they are on and wanting more when they are off! I’m so excited to see what’s in store for our super soap couple. Hope there’s a lot of meat on that bone that Will was talking about for Julexis fans!

Beth

I came back to GH for Julexis. I’ve loved Nancy Lee Grahn in other pairings but this one is my favorite because there is a maturity to them, and I’m not just talking about age. These characters have lived and lost and weren’t looking for love, but here they are. I also like when a couple comes together and works which TPTB weren’t counting on or pushing for us to like. This is a couple the fans wanted, which is more proof that sometimes the audience really does know best. No doubt, NLG and WdV are great friends and enjoy working together and that’s another thing we see when they’re together on screen. As for when they get together, I can wait. The best is worth waiting for.

I loved this video julexis is thee best soap pairing in a long time I’m excited what’s in store for them.On another note if you don’t like julexis why watch this video or even comment don’t tell me you can’t read. So if you think julian should be paired with Olivia get that outta here if you like them which yes people can like what you like but go post that stuff else where NOT ON a julexis interview peace.

I hadn’t watched soaps in years, then I saw a Julian and Alexis scene last year and I’ve been hooked ever since. Only wish they were on more. And, I’m perplexed that they’re basically ignored by soap mags. Seems strange considering how popular they are. I’m extra grateful to see people like Michael Fairman and Michael Logan showing them a little love. Nancy Lee Grahn and William deVry give great interviews and their onscreen chemistry in undeniable. General Hospital went outside of the box with these two and it paid off. “Julexis” are smart, intense, sexy, and complicated. What’s not to love?

Thank you, Michael, Nancy, and William for the awesome interview!

Nathalie
Nathalie

First of all, I love this interview! Nancy and Wil are just so laid back and comfortable with each that it is easily transferred onscreen. Their chemistry on and off screen is out of this world. There has never been any daytime couple that excites me the way they do! They make me feel like I’m watching a real life couple who is going through real life issues. Julexis may be a complicated hot mess but they are a gorgeous complicated hot mess that always brings their “A” game to every scene. They don’t have to be doing anything in a scene to bring the heat. Julexis is “It” for each other!
Should Julian and Alexis go on the run? I say HELL to the YES! Matter of fact, give these two their own sitcom. Julexis equals ratings GOLD! Hell, they’re better than gold. They’re PLATINUM! Julexis is the reason why I started back watching and I give credit to Nancy and Wil for that. They are truly awesome and most amazing actors in Daytime. There’s really no other couple that’s better. I really can’t wait for sweeps. I know it will be awesome.

Thanks so much for this interview. Wil and Nancy are wonderful actors and wonderful people. You can see how much they love working together and their onscreen chemistry is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I look forward to their reunion, it has been far too long!! I can handle angst with this couple as long as they are together during the angst. I hope Julexis are together for many years to come. They are the reason I came back to GH after almost 10 years away. Julexis forever!!

Liyah

This was lovely! I started watching General Hospital again because I had been hearing so much about Julian and Alexis from my college friends who watch GH in between classes. NLG and WDV have fantastic chem onscreen and seem like the perfect screen partners offscreen.

I can’t wait to see what happens next with Julian and Alexis, these months that they have been broken up has been TORTURE. I CAN NOT WAIT to see them back together!

Dee

Thank you for this amazing interview with Will and Nancy. They are hilarious and you can see how much they love working with each other. I’m so excited on the upcoming reunion of JULEXIS. These two belong together and I want them together for a very long time. They are hot, and their connection is explosive. They are the super couple of GH and I would love to see Julexis go on the run too. I want an adventure for them. They deeply love each and I want them to work things out.

What makes Julian and Alexis so captivating is;
… lust
besides the love they lust ..
they explode when they touch.. Julian doesn’t hesitate to just do it!
He grabs her and pull her against her and then TNT!
They are a soap couple dream = lust and love ..

That was fun!! Thanks for doing an interview with GH’s most dynamic duo. Julian and Alexis are everything I love about soap couples. A brilliant pairing brought to life by the amazingly talented Nancy Lee Grahn and William deVry. I can’t wait for Julian and Alexis to reunite. They’re sexy as hell, and I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that they’re not 20-somethings. Young love is sweet, but this is so much sexier!!!

Pam

Thank you so much for this interview Michael. It was wonderful.!! Nancy and Wil are the best couple to hit soaps in years and it was great to see them interact together off screen as well.

I have been a long time GH viewer but was getting a little bored with the show and decided to stop watching back in early 2013. However Nancy and Wil together as Julexis brought me back to GH. They are now the main resaon I watch the show. I am captivated when they are on my screen. They are must see TV for me. They really do remind me of the old soap super couple days. They have incredible chemistry and are not only super hot and sexy but smart, witty, adorable, sweet and romantic. They appeal to all ages which is a rare thing today. The viewers saw something in them and made them into the popular couple they are today. Nancy and Wil always bring their A game. I can’t wait to see what is in store for them in 2015. Along with the angst I want some romance and some fun. I will be watching no matter what they do as long as they are on my screen. I look forward to many years of storyline for my favorite couple..

Thanks again Michael, Nancy and Wil for the great interview!

Wonderful interview! Wil and Nancy clearly enjoy each other and are pulling for Julexis. I’m pulling for them, too. No NYE one night stand can compare to the intense connection, passion, sexiness and storyline potential that Julexis has. They have tapped into something unique and much needed on daytime. Thank you for the interview, Michael!

Thank you for the interview! It seems that you all had fun! Will and Nancy are so captivating and entertaining. They are compliment each other in personalities. They work together very well.

Absolutely love them!!!

Thank you for this wonderful interview! Julian and Alexis are my favorite couple right now and are single-handedly responsible for bringing me back to GH after over a decade of not watching. NLG and WDV have wonderful chemistry, both on and off-screen, and seem to compliment one another perfectly. As Julian and Alexis, they are captivating, passionate, romantic, and intense. I LOVE watching them together and can’t wait to see where their story goes next.

I LOVED this interview! We got lots of information and insight into them as a pairing, as well as Nancy being able to promote GHNow, which is the most hilarious show concept I’ve seen in a while!

I absolutely adore Julian and Alexis as a couple, and it’s great to hear that they will be reconnecting soon. They always leave me wanting more and captivate my senses. It’s great to see the fun teasing relationship Wil and Nancy have.

Probably my favorite part was when Nancy said, “Mostly, I think about dead puppies.” Everyone started laughing. Loved the banter between the 3 of you, the interview was wonderful, and I hope you get to interview them again in the future Michael! Thank you again for this, looked like a lot of fun, great chemistry!

Julexis is such an original and smokin’ hot pairing! They appeal to all age groups and can’t wait to see what is in store for them.

Thank you, Kathie Simmons….and Timmm, too! You tell it like it is….I will never understand the so-called appeal of Alexis, particularly with Julian. He has it going on enough all by his lonesome, he certainly does not need to be paired up with this tiresome, overbearing woman. In fact, he’s far preferable coupled with Olivia!

General Hospital

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

Courtesy/ABC

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Courtesy/ABC

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.
