General Hospital’s Tabyana Ali Weighs-In on the Slow Burn of ‘Sprina’

During this week’s ABC Winter Press Tour for the Television Critics Association (TCA), both Tabyana Ali (Trina) and Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer) took part in the GH panel.

Not only did the cast and creatives discuss plans for the daytime drama’s upcoming 60th anniversary, but they gave reporters a chance to ask questions related to current and past storylines, and more.

When the question was posed of just when will ‘Sprina’ finally share a kiss, and the slow burn between Trina and Spencer romantically, Tabyana Ali fielded it and responded.

Tabyana expressed: “I will say, as somebody who is a big romance fan, the slow burn, I think, is necessary.  There’s something about the tension that draws in the audience. I think that’s also a reason why we’re bringing in more audience, because of the tension and because of the pacing of it, especially in the day and age where relationships happen so quickly.”

She also added: “It’s really nice to see two people, two young people, two interracial people that love each other try to get closer with one another and also try to jump over the barriers that are created, not only just from them, but from their environment … and they learn how to work through it together.”

So, are you enjoying the slow burn of ‘Sprina’? Do you hope Spencer and Trina share their first kiss soon ? Share your thoughts on Tabyana’s comments below.

I like slow burns, but don’t make it too long like soaps are prone to do. It’s been interesting to watch their journey from first meeting…the spark started there…to now. And the trust they are building for each other has played a big factor.

I like slow burn, but honey at this point the meal is cooked and we ready to eat. Let’s get moving on their couple Era, including a lot of kissing and pannycake slapping.

Sorry, but there is nothing in their future to look forward to. They are boring and have no chemestry now, what makes some people think there will be some big romantic explosion?

Also have to consider the transition from Sydney Mikayla to Tabyana Ali as a factor because had the chemistry between Tabyana Ali and Nicholas Chavez not capture what Sydney and Nicholas created then Sprina would have been diverted a while ago.

They were diverted. Spencer’s been locked up and they threw Rory in the middle of it. And he conveniently got hooked right when Spencer was getting out of lockup. But that was still several months of “diversion”. Not even playing out in the typical “triangle” scenario, with Spencer behind bars & not able to see Trina at all.

Agreed ! no disrespect to Tabyana Ali, but the pairing with Nicholas Chavez does not capture anything that was present with Sydney Mikayla.

She make a good point would love to see them together they have the same personality and friendship that storyline is taking too long for them to get together

Sorry… but, I don’t see the hype behind this non-couple. I genuinely don’t. Trina would be better suited with Cameron, any way, and then Emma can come back and shake things up for everyone involved.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?
