Fans of General Hospital from all over the globe gathered together for the one thing that unites them as one, their passion and love for their favorite cast on daytime television!  And whether they were there fearing this could be their last opportunity to get hugs, kisses, and a John Hancock from their favorite actors (who play the mobsters, doctor, nurses and fashionistas in Port Charles), or, if they were on hand to show their support and celebrate as the show begins to move into its 50th anniversary next year and its new time slot in September, there were plenty of smiles, laughs, and tears of joy on this day.

GH Fan Club President, Debbie Morris and her team, work tirelessly to put the weekend event together year after year, so that everyone has a good time and gets to meet their favorites up close and personal.  And while many events surround the weekend with many of the cast having their own more intimate get-togethers with their legions of fans, there is still nothing like the Main Event on Saturday afternoon when most of the entire cast gives back to the fans who have helped the show stay on the air for 49 years.

This year and for the first time, General Hospital’s newest executive producer, Frank Valentini made a surprise and welcomed appearance and joined his cast on stage for the always entertaining Q&A session, which this year was emceed fabulously by the talented Bradford Anderson (Spinelli).

Before the Main Event, On-Air On-Soaps was in the Green Room welcoming the stars, getting some interviews, and snapping some candid shots, which you will see along with photos from the arrivals outside of the Sportsman’s Lodge in Studio City, which again played host to the annual event.   All in all, we were so impressed by the friendships the fans have formed with each other though their mutual love of GH, and the respect shown to them by the cast.

After the jump, check out the 2012 images featuring: Jason Thompson, Dominic Zamprogna, Julie Berman, Kelly Sullivan, Steve Burton, Michael Easton, Maurice Benard,  Chad Duell, Erik Valdez, Haley Pullos, Laura Wright, Jen Lilley, Brandon Barash, Robin Mattson, Rebecca Herbst and many others.  Of note:  Kelly Monaco and Roger Howarth were no-shows at the Main Saturday event, thus why there are no images of them included here.

Now take a look at our gallery below with our very special captions. Then let us know your impressions of GHFCW 2012 if you were in attendance, and if not, what images you enjoyed the most!

Glad everyone had a good time. I have some friends that attended that I met through AMC events. It sure makes me miss the All My Children events, what is great about them you do make life long friends, never in a million years would I have thought I would meet the cast of All My Children the soap that I grew up with. I want to thank Bobbie Eakes for letting me know about my first soap opera event. Rock The Soap Cruise, All the actors are just wonderful and so happy they still they put on events so we can still see them. I hope General Hospital has another one next year to celebrate 50 years!!

Michael thank you so much for sharing the wonderful pic’s. These actors look so much better when they don’t have all makeup on and dressed casual. I have been a fan of soaps since the later 1960’s when I was in highschool. ABC line up was what I started with then watched Y&R when it started and many other soaps long gone. So thank you for all your work with the soap community!!

Yes, Kirsten is finally well enough to return, so Jen Lilley will no longer be needed to fill in. Apparently she has already taped her last show and posted a thank you and goodbye video on youtube and her FB page…

Seem to miss these events..They are always too far for me to go or I find out when it is too late..I wish they would come to FL……………The northern part of fl.. I would really like to see the cast & talk to them face to face on GH…..But I never seem to get the chance..Like I said it’s far for me to travel by myself. Plus I would need my husband to drive me ..Forget about flying…My husband isn’t a soap fan & wouldn’t want to drive too far and me too……………Come to daytona fl. or St. Augustine,Jacksonville,Palm Coast , all these would be good for me……………Not that far to travel..Give these Fl. locations a chance….Come to the SUNSHINE STATE!!!!!!!!!! Again come to the NORTHERN PART OF FL…………………………………………………………………………………………..

Thanks for sharing the pics. Damn, Michael Easton looked GORGEOUS! He had the loudest applause too, and the longest line. I’m so proud to hear that he was accepted so enthusiastically by the GH fans. I love his character John McBain and hope he stays on for as long as GH does. I wish he had showed up at Kelly Monaco’s event, it would have been a treat. 😀

Ingo Rademacher Back To General Hospital As Jax

What a fun reveal by General Hospital and Ingo Rademacher!  And with that, look who’s coming home to Port Charles?  Hot on the heels of his stop over at The Bold and the Beautiful where he took over the role of Thorne Forrester, the GH fan favorite is back at his old stomping grounds.

In the video teaser, Jax and Carly’s (Laura Wright) last goodbye scene plays, which aired the last time Ingo was on GH, and then the camera pans to the back of a man’s head watching the TV

“Oh, come on!  Well, that can’t be the end. Cause it’s not,” says the guy.  In true soap opera fashion, the camera reveals it’s Rademacher who states: “I’m coming back to General Hospital and Jax’s legacy is going to continue in a big way. See you soon.”

So, will Jax be back in Carly’s arms or someone else’s? What will happen when Josslyn (Eden McCoy) reunites with her father?  Will Jax be involved in a major mystery? Share your thoughts on Ingo’s return to GH via the comment section below.  But first, check out the teaser video that contained this exciting cast addition announcement.
