No, she wasn’t there. Don’t recall an explanation, but that escaped my attention!

Love her as Diane…great character! But I think she’s a bit typecast…she’s always “upper crust”…even in True Blood she was an elite vampire with a haughty air.LOL. Still, always welcome on my screen! Love Gilmore Girls!

I love her, too, Rebecca. And, I have watched every single episode of GILMORE GIRLS. Plus reruns!!
I thought some segments of the original episodes ( at the time) were actually filmed in Hartford, Ct, as I am very familiar with the area. It looked like the business center of that city.

Hey CeeCee…Sunday morning…drinking tea and replying to you. But it’s 7am…my precious cat woke me up so here I am! LOL…of course now that she’s had her little breakfast she’s snoring away…and I can’t fall back to sleep!

From what I read the pilot (of the original series) was shot in Ontario…the rest in the Burbank Ca studio. But!…it was based off a picturesque, idyllic town of Washington, Connecticut (so it was based on a town in Conn similar to what you indicated) where the writer visited and stayed in a beautiful inn. She said she was so taken by small town life and the way the people all knew each other…that the inspiration for the Gilmore Girls was born.

I just found a show, of all places on the Hallmark Channel…never really watched that channel…but it’s a beautifully shot show in Maryland. It’s called “Chesapeake Shores” and stars Diane Ladd, Treat Williams (don’t know if you are familiars with either of these actors..they’re fantastic and both very acclaimed…she’s 72, plays the grandmother and Treat’s in his 50s as the father.) Also stars Jesse Metcalfe and Meghan Ory…beautiful actress who plays Little Red Riding Hood in “Once a upon A Time” (another show I love). Anyway, Chesapeake shores is stunning visually and white it has more serious drama than “Gilmore Girls”…they’re similar in a quaint town, picturesque, family oriented vibe.

Happy Sunday!

Hey, Rebecca.
Yes, most towns north of Bridgeport– west of the river, ( Avon, West Hartford, Simsbury, Canton, Farmington; to name a few) in Ct are quaint. Some ‘cuter’ and more affluent than others. Hartford is the capital and a very urban city…..sort of lacks the special ‘serenity’ one assumes all towns and cities in Ct possess.
But, overall, Ct is one of the wondrous states, for sure.
Oh, I knew GILMORE GIRLS filmed mainly in California, and I am also very familiar with Markham, Ontario.
Nonetheless, I was impressed how well Hartford was depicted—-when the residents of Stars Hollow ‘visited’ downtown. The buildings actually looked authentic.
Another show that actually filmed in CT was JUDGING AMY, starring Amy Brenneman, whose parents actually graduated from Harvard Law school…..but, the family is from Ct and Amy was born in Glastonbury. Do you remember that show? I absolutely loved it….I used to watch with my mother until I went off to school and beyond….but, I continued watching.
I love Connecticut…mostly all New England States……but, CT is my favorite.
I think Carolyn will fit in perfectly with the ‘uppity’ crowd, LOL. Superlative addition. Later.

To smug for me, I hope this means she stays off GH!

This is great news! I’ve watched every episode of GILMORE GIRLS (like many others, I’m sure) and Carolyn will be a perfect addition. I can imagine the barbs flying between she and Kelly Bishop, who was criminally robbed of Emmy nominations year after year so that the SAME PEOPLE could win. Emily Gilmore was/is one of my favorite TV characters, so I can’t wait to revisit her and this wonderful show.

I just love her!! She is perfect as Diane Miller and wish that she was on more often.

Diane should have been at Julians trial then he would be behind bars

Diane is a defense attorney; not a prosecutor. She’s always on the side of the criminals.

Love Carolyn having the different opportunities to spread her wings just as long as she is still a part of GH.

Amen to that, Rose! Have you ever noticed that the good ones like Carolyn too often get away from Port Charles and we’re left with the same old characters played by those less in demand elsewhere????

She’s great!!! I love seeing her on various things, but my favorite role is as Diane on GH. She should be on there more!! She was hilarious on Jessie, too! Just a great all around actress and a pleasure to watch on anything.

If she had been at the trial for Julian on GH.. She would have stopped Alexis from testifying. That is why she was not written into that episode. I love her work on the show whenever she is on.. YES I agree.. she would be WONDERFUL on Kiefer Sutherland’s show.. Designated Survivor.

Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”
