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 »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
