GH casts Kelly Sullivan as the new Kate Howard!

Well, GH finally did it. They replaced the talented Megan Ward who had been so badly back-burnered with a new Kate Howard 2.0!

This time around, the fashionista will be played by relative soap newcomer Kelly Sullivan. It has been confirmed by ABC Soaps In Depth that Sullivan has been put on contract, wheras the show bumped Ward to recurring.

A bit we know about Kelly Sullivan, is that she has had small parts on One Life to Live and As the World Turns and guest-starred in primetime police procedural dramas such as Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Sullivan is set to make her Port Charles debut in the fall.

The actress is in her early thirties. Are we supposed to believe that she is Sonny’s age or are they going to rewrite history again? Stupid move GH. Megan Ward was unique and fabulous and had great chemistry with Maurice Benard.

No way! Brenda was a B****. Sorry to say. I’m still waiting for Sonny and Carly to get back together. They are classic. I never saw Branda in the good old days but this time around I couldn’t understand why anyone would give her the time of day. And Megan Ward rocked out as Kate. So not impressed with this one – sorry chiquita!

Why are so many people under the impression the show’s head writer gets to decide if an actor/actress stays or goes? While it is *possible* — depending on how open the EP is to suggestion that a certain actor may or may not be able to play the role as it will soon be written — this is an EP / Corporate (Brian Frons, in this case) decision as often as not. Phelps and Frons clearly decided they didn’t like Megan Ward as Kate, as the part was reduced to nothing long ago–under the head writer who created her–and they… Read more »

Well, That is fine, but I refuse to watch the damn show for the lack of respect they have for fans. You have your opinion and I have mine.

Maybe Megan had some backstage shenanigans we simply are not privy too. Keep in mind we thought Drew Garrett’s Michael was irreplaceble also. GH has the best casting director out there, so we are o.k.

The actress is 33 years old Megan Ward is 41 now you are going to make this beleiveable when Sonny is 47 yrs old! I am sure Megan Ward got out of favor with Tony, Maurice & Steve ! You know those actors that overact or read cue cards or say nothing at all!!!!!

Maybe the actor’s can’t say anything now because of legalities?

There seems to be a lot of hush hush, how the owner’s will handle the details.

Maybe they have to wait until Sept. when AMC is completely gone?

I use to watch the damn show, but I gave up on it, because of the lack of respect. I was just making a statement. Get real!

Megan is Kate. I would like to know why Megan was not brought back. I think Kelly kind of resembles Megan, so this recast may work. I still hope they bring Megan back eventually if Kelly does not work out.

First of all when did the head writer change on GH? I loved Megan Ward and I hope this newby can fill her shoes. Let’s give her a chance.
I also hope that Carolyn Hennessey did not leave the show. I know she is supposed to be on a book tour and she will return to GH. She is not only beautiful, but very funny. Her facial expressions are hilarious.
Good bye to Brenda and Jax. Don’t miss them at all.

There is absolutely no chemistry with the new Kate. Megan Ward was great as Kate you really hated her being such a bitch but in th end you wish you could be her…..

Megan Ward is Kate, even Mr Benard wanted her back GH does not listen to it’s viewers, now if they said it was money reasons, I could understand why Megan wanted more, after the huge bomb of Brenda, and the stupid Olivia s/l, the only one that worked was Megan & Maurice, the ratings poved that. GH is on it’s way out UNLESS they LISTEN and start giving the fans what they want, get rid of the Zacara family, forget about Lisa coming back, and get back to basics, The Q,s , Skate, ect, Olivia, Dante, and the rest have… Read more »

Kelly Sullivan has proven to be an excellent actress and not just another pretty face. Did I say”pretty’? I meant absolutely gorgeous.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
