The whirlwind of events at the 2019 edition of the General Hospital Fan Club Weekend has come and gone, but with lasting memories for fans who traveled across the country and more to see their favorites from Port Charles up close and personal, through the main cast event, autograph signings, and more intimate events with popular cast members and duos.

Held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Glendale, California, and put together by fan club president, Debbie Morris and her team, as well as events surrounding the weekend from: Claire Mullan, Jim Warren, Debby O’Connor, and more, fans were kept busy bouncing from gathering to gathering.

Things got started last Thursday with the GH kick-off event attended by the likes of John J. York and Jon Lindstrom, as well as an event with Kin Shriner. That was followed by Friday with Mimosa’s with Lisa LoCicero, and a special event that reunited former on-screen loves, Tony Jones and Bobbie Spencer, played by Brad Maule and Jackie Zeman. The evening featured annual events from: Donnell Turner, Nancy Lee Grahn, and a Karoke event which featured some of the younger set in Port Charles.

When Saturday came, many of the stars came out in support of the fan club including: Rebecca Herbst, who made a very special appearance.  That was in addition to notables: Roger Howarth. Michael Easton, Josh Swickard, Maurice Benard, Max Gail, Bradford Anderson, Steve Burton, Carolyn Hennesy, William Lipton, Tristan Rogers, Kristina Wagner,Lisa LoCicero, Coby Ryan McLaughlin, William deVry, Tamara Braun, and others.  Prior to the autographs, Steve Burton hosted some short panels with groups from the cast chatting it up in front of the audience.  After a group photo, each actor took off to their respective autograph tables to meet the fans and sign their “John Hancock” and pose for some photos.

Following the main event, Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson held a special show which featured a version of their comedy show, ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal”. Needless to say any fan of GH, would appreciate the humor and stories within their show.  If that wasn’t enough, another great time was had by all at the annual event with best buds, Michael Easton and Roger Howarth.  After fielding questions from the audience and signing autographs, they were joined by a surprise special guest, Rebecca Budig!

Sunday started with a morning with Mutter, as Kathleen Gati hosted her event.  Then, real-life lovebirds Laura Wright and Wes Ramsey held a morning champagne get-together and talked about their roles on GH, their life together and more.  Maurice Benard also held his own event; which was loved by all who attended.  Later, Emme Rylan and Kirsten Storms held an intimate gathering in a hotel suite for their fans.

Later in the day, Tamara Braun dished about the latest on Dr. Kim Nero and fielded questions from those in attendance at her event.  And Sunday concluded with Wally Kurth hosting Bingo night with the Quartermaines with very special guests: Adrianne Leon and Lesli Kay, plus Leslie Charleson!   The five-day event-o-rama ended this Monday with a Brucas (Parry Shen and Ryan Carnes)’ get-together, and then the final even which featured Marc Anthony Samuel.

Check out some of the images with the cast from our GHFCW 2019 gallery below. and then let us know, who you were glad to see was there, and what was your favorite part of the weekend (if you were in Los Angeles for the fan gathering) via the comment section.

I flew in Friday to rest up for three Saturday events – the main cast event and two back to back events with Roger and Michael. It was fun that Rebecca surprised us with an appearance at the first R&M event, and briefly at the start of the second event, but I caught sight of a second surprise at their first event…. “Isn’t that Michael Fairman?” When you came back in the room I got my chance to ask for a photo with you! Saturdays events were so much fun. The panels were great fun and then what a surprise… Read more »

General Hospital Stars Participate in GLSEN’s ‘Day of Silence’, Asking You To Do The Same

General Hospital’s Sofia Mattsson, Cynthia Watros, Kathleen Gati, Brook Kerr and Johnny Wactor appear in a video released this morning, where the actors look to camera and remain silent.

It’s all a part of the ongoing initiative from GLSEN and their “Day of Silence” campaign which is  a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ students and allies all around the country—and the world—take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools.  Every April, students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with Breaking the Silence rallies and events to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive.

This year the day is this coming Friday April 23rd.  General Hospital is showing their support of LGBTQ+students and their right to be safe at school and free of verbal harassment, as well.  The video released today supports the organizations action.

 

Now they ask you to support it as well and make your own, ‘Day of Silence’ video and share it on social media.  Watch General Hospital’s below.

Then let us know, if you stand with GH and their support of GLSEN’s Day of Silence via the comment section.

Kimberly McCullough Gives Clues That Have GH Fans Suspecting She Was Back for John Reilly’s Tribute Episode: “Saw Some Old Friends and Reminisced about an Absent Dear One…”

General Hospital fans began taking note of a couple of tweets sent out by beloved longtime cast member, Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio), over the last 24 hours on the actress-director’s Twitter feed.

First, Kimberly shared: “I did something really cool today that involved wearing make-up and heels all day, which I clearly wasn’t prepared for.”

After that she followed it up with, “Here’s a clue – saw some old friends and reminisced about a dear absent one ….”

If you combine that with the fact that Jackie Zeman also tweeted: “Good day shooting @GeneralHospital I was invited back for a special episode today. As Y’all know I rarely post a selfie but it’s been awhile since I’ve had ‘Bobbie’ hair and makeup done. Thank you Karen, Carl, and Ari. Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone,” it would appear that both McCullough and Zeman were back for the upcoming tribute episode to the late John Reilly, who for many years played Sean Donely.

In story, Robin’s parents, Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Anna (Finola Hughes) were very close with Sean, as well.  So it all makes sense that Robin would be part of this as well.

So, if this is proven to be true, are you excited to see Kimberly back on a special episode of GH?  Comment below.

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
