GH Preview – Week of March 25, 2019

Photo Credit: ABC

All roads lead to Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and you can put Willow (Kaetlyn MacMullen) in the mix now that it has been revealed she used to be in Dawn of Day and as she confesses to Chase (Josh Swickard), that she had Shiloh’s baby.

That would mean that Willow believes the baby Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) are raising is hers with Shiloh! Willow finally admits the truth to Chase, but says that she must leave town as to not jeopardize the safety of her baby.  Chase tells her he will keep her safe and to stay in town.  Will she give their romance a fighting chance?

Meanwhile, all of Port Charles is reeling from the news that Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) knew that his serial killer twin brother, Ryan was alive and that he was treating him before his escape from Ferncliff and trading places with him.  Will Laura (Genie Francis) ever take Kevin back?  Will Ava (Maura West) continue to hope that she can end Ryan’s life herself, if he survived the fall from the bridge in Niagara Falls?

And ,something is not right with Dante’s (Dominic Zamprogna) homecoming.  We saw that he has scars and marks all over his back, which leads one to believe he was tortured while in captivity and on his mission.  Will anyone see that Dante needs help desperately?

Check out these teasers for this week’s GH’s and the latest promo for the soap below.  Then, let us know what storypoint you are looking forward to seeing the most via the comment section below.

I gotta say;
The Dawn of Day is a Fail..
It is boring and totally not interesting..
There is no deep sense to it, it’s weak very weak..

Here’s hoping April will actually have some drama.
And perhaps some gripping suspense.. bwahaa what am I thinkin yah sure! haaa!

Yes, SusieQ….Dawn of Day is missing the mark for me. However, I am beginning to like Willow….she isn’t so wishy-washy, afterall.
I think someone other than Coby Ryan should have been cast.
He has neither a magnetic personality, nor does he have the looks to match. He is ineffective, in my opinion.
Shiloh is shallow—-he needs a shower and a shave—I like short beards on a guy, but “Shilow’s” looks like an unkempt lawn with bald/dry spots.
Never have I wanted Jason to punch someone out as I do Shiloh.
Then, there’s Dante. “I must complete the mission.”…

SuOOO,
Actually Michelle Stafford leaving to go back to Y&R was drama and a shock to me. The suspense will be, whether they will re-cast, and who will it be.

Only thing I look forward to on this show are Franco/Elizabeth, Finn/Anna, Ava, Laura, Kevin/Ryan. The rest is garbage.

You hang in there Denise. It’s got to get better, as things progress , things will get worse at Drones Of Despair, until they bring down Shiloh. I just hope Jason doesn’t cut his own throat, by taking him down.The SL with Willow and Nina, should really be good, and the ones with the SL’s with the ones you mentioned, except for Anna who is getting on my very last nerve!

So, do you agree with me that Willow is really Nina’s daughter, Violet? What would truly give this story life would be if Sasha and Willow ere twins—-Nina’s babies!! I can’t wait for Dawn of Day never sees another dawn. When will Michael embrace the Big Reveal? That Wiley is Jonas? Or is it Jonah? Such repetitive storylines hold no interest–overly-used. No anticipation. Laura Wright is pregnant—according to scuttlebutt—as soon as Carly announced her pregnancy, I did say that Laura must be pregnant. No way would a Carly pregnancy be introduced at this stage. Oh, Lordy Lord, Miss Violet—-Anna? You… Read more »

H Ceia Let’s start from the bottom, OK? You said “stupid SL”. Well what’s even stupider, is Peter and Robin being twins, and Rbt. Scorpio being the father. We know he doesn’t like Peter, so it makes sense. I thought L.W might be pregnant, since she has been carrying something over her belly, for a while now. I really liked Anna, I just don’t know why the writers don’t. With M.S leaving, what will happen to Nina and Willow discovering each other? I would think they will re-cast, can’t just dump this SL which I am really getting into. Keep… Read more »

Hi, Violet, Getting ready for Sunday Mass…..always in a hurry… So, I apologize for typos in advance. I should get into the habit of looking below where autocorrect appears—-yet, even autocorrect gets it wrong, sometimes, LOL. I know all about cults—part of my studies in modern Humanities, as it were. However, most are impressionable kids—to target people in their forties, as Shiloh tried with Jason, Sam, Brad etc….is definitely off course….unless, said adults are of feeble mind…. Nonetheless, it is a soap, therefore, reality becomes part of the abstract. Peter and Robin being twins iwith different fathers is a soap-bubbles-fare…eg.… Read more »

Celia, Thanks for taking a little time for me before church. I know what you mean about twins with different fathers. You may be too young to have seen GL years ago, when Blake had the honor. Anyway, what I referred to in my previous comment was Anna supposedly gave birth to twins, both of them fathered by Scorpio, with Peter being given to Faison. I am not sure how reliable this info is, but if it’s true, we know how Robert feels about Peter.I know what you’re saying about Alex being Peter’s mother, but do we know this for… Read more »

OOOO, I love that idea, Violet!!…Gina playing Willow’s mom. …there could, potentially, be a lot of story there…. Scorpio is really Peter’s father? Oh, I missed that episode, I guess—I didn’t know. WOW!! I cannot remember the story too well of how Alex and Anna became estranged. I “knew” both from AMC; but it was Dr. Alexandra Devane Marick with whom I was most familiar. I am just speculating about Peter being Alex’s son….who knows? When the time is convenient for TPTB, they may take advantage of it—it would add shock, mystery and attraction to the plotless story– As it… Read more »

Celia Didn’t mean to mislead but the thing I said about Scorpio being father to Robin and Peter is still rumour. Yes Anna can cry, almost as good as Victor Newman. I am not M.S biggest fan, but her scenes with Jeff B.were hot! I’ve loved Josh Morrow, since he was a kid. Always thought he was cute and sexy, and he can do no wrong. He just gets mixed up with the wrong women. I think the only one I approved of was Sage. Spoken like a mom, or grandma. I’ll settle for any title, if he’d have me.… Read more »

Love what’s happening on the show now. I hope the actor that plays Dante sticks around for the full reveal of what happened to him. Excited to see Jason choke Shiloh. Want more screen time for Friz and their family drama. Hope Micheal gets his son back soon and names him something other than Wiley. Ecstatic over how the writers are finally waking up and having Kevin feel the full recompense of his decision. I can’t wait until the writers have Jason and his brother Drew get into some trouble together. The skill set these two have should be explored.… Read more »

The Dawn of Day storyline became a bore for me when Sam, Jason, and Sonny became involved.

Well it’s Wednesday. I knew Willow would stay. Jason has his work cut out for him. How to get rid of Shilo, without killing him. I wasn’t quite sure what Jordan’s little grin was about at the end today. Almost looked like she had that perverbial canary for lunch. I just have to say that when I saw Franco’s new doo, the words that came out of mouth were very unlady like. I wonder if it was by choice, or does someone hate him?

Wish Jason would pop Shiloh’s head like a giant zit! I know, yuk,eew, and all that, but that’s what that creep is. Can’t wait till they get him.

GH Alum Sydney Mikayla Talks On Her Daytime Emmy Nomination, Decision To Exit & Her Former Co-Stars

It’s been quite the banner year for Sydney Mikayla (Ex-Trina Robinson, GH) thus far, and she topped it off with her second Daytime Emmy nomination, when a few weeks ago she landed in the Younger Performer in a Drama Series category.  That means, Mikayla will be vying for the gold statuette, but also against some of her dear friends and former co-stars from General Hospital.

Back in March, Mikayla revealed she was leaving the ABC daytime drama series to focus on college full-time where she is a freshman at UCLA. With Sydney’s departure came recasting the role of Trina and the part went in to the capable hands of Tabyana Ali, who is currently appearing on the soap and carrying on the Trina Robinson torch.

As the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are just around the corner (they air live next month on June 24th on CBS), Michael Fairman TV caught up with the very busy Mikayla, to get her take on all things Emmy including: the scenes she chose for her nominated reel, working alongside with Nicholas Alexander Chavez and creating what would become the popular “Sprina”, the factors that led to her departure and more. Here’s what Sydney shared below.

 

Your former co-stars and fellow ‘Younger Actor’ nominees, William Lipton (Cameron) and Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer) appeared on my Daytime Emmy Nominations livestream special, and both share how thrilled they were that that you got nominated.  I know you’re friends with them, but they just could not have spoken more highly of you.

SYDNEY:  That’s so sweet!  I’ve loved working with them for so long.  It just feels so great to know that they said that.

Photo: ABC

What was on your Emmy reel submission that landed you the nomination?

SYDNEY:  I was a little bit nervous this year, more than last year, because last year was the first time that I ever had a storyline.  So, for this year, I was definitely like, “I’m not really sure how this is going to go,” because there’s just so many new elements that were happening with everything that was going on, for example: Trina getting a more acclimated relationship with her mom, and then we had Cyrus (Jeff Kober) come in for a little bit.  I chose the best moments that really showcased my acting, even though it wasn’t a cohesive storyline from start to finish on my reel.  I’m really glad it worked!  I was a little more on pins and needles for this one, and ultimately, it turned out great.

Photo: IG

Was Nicholas Alexander Chavez in any of the scenes you submitted?

SYDNEY:  He was! I got to show that soft side of Trina, which I really didn’t think we got to see, especially in my first Emmy reel, and her being vulnerable.  We never see Trina really make a mistake, so that was really fun.  Not that her relationship was a mistake, but more that we never get to see her slip up or say the wrong thing, or just put herself out there, and put her heart on the line. I enjoyed being able to play that and then being able to put it in my reel.  Nicholas just made it so easy … what an amazing co-star.  He just made me feel so comfortable.  It was just really fun to do and to include.  I also had scenes with the teen scene …there’s five of us! Of course, I had to include Trina’s standoff with Esme (Avery Pohl).  I think, it was actually the last clip I put in on my reel.

Which was a great scene!

SYDNEY:  Yes, and Avery is so sweet, but she plays evil so well.  So, that was also so incredible to do, just that standoff of: ‘Who’s going to win!?  Trina?  Esme?  What’s going to happen?  What’s going to go down?’  No one knew, so that was really fun, too.

Photo: JPI

Did you include scenes between you and Eden McCoy (Joss) as bff’s Trina and Joss on your Emmy reel?

SYDNEY:  Oh, of course, of course! It was some of those heartfelt bestie moments of her just kind of consoling me, and making sure everything was okay between Trina and Esme. I like those heartfelt moments that Trina had with one of her closest friends on the show, and a great friend in real life, as well.

When you found out you were nominated, who was the first person you called … or was your phone blowing up and you were receiving lots of congrats?

SYDNEY:  This year, with being on a college campus and being in person for the first time, it’s really easy to get sick.  So, I was not feeling too great. I was sleeping in my dorm when the nominations came out.  I still keep in contact with my makeup artist from the show, Ali, and she’s so sweet.  We were texting, and she was like, “By the way, congrats”, and kind of kept texting me, and I’m like, “Congrats for what?” I looked, and I was like, “Oh my gosh!  I got nominated!”  So that was pretty funny, and I screamed through my whole dorm!  I posted a video on Instagram because I wanted to keep everyone in the loop, and I really do feel so grateful.  I feel all of the support from my friends, and family, and the fans of the show. I always try to make a video every year to try to just be grateful, or say ‘thank you’ because I really want to key everyone into this journey.  It was a little bit of a shock, but definitely in the midst of not feeling too well, it was the highlight of my day, for sure!  Now, I am feeling that heat of finals at school, but I am so excited. The Emmy definitely breaks up the stress a little bit, so I’m very grateful.

Photo: ABC

Was there somebody you called to let them know you were nominated, though?

SYDNEY:  I actually called Nicholas and William, first, to say congratulations.  William had called me before I had woken up, and then I called him back, and then of course, I called my mom and dad.  It was also a surprise to them.  I think it was just because I had been so laser-focused on school that looking at the Emmy nominations really wasn’t the priority this year.

Could you believe how popular ‘Sprina’ became so quickly?  They weren’t even a bonafide duo yet!

SYDNEY:  I could not!  I was really shocked, but I was excited to see how much the fans loved it, and how much the fans kind of lived through it. That in turn, gave us more of that ammo to really build that story and build that tension, and to always kind of play those moments in between.  Nicholas did a really great job of that, and of challenging me to always have that subtext, under the lines.  I was really shocked to see how quickly the popularity of Sprina blew up, but I’m grateful that the fans loved it for as long as they.  I hope that they continue to love it with Tabyana Ali playing the part.  She is such an incredible actress and powerhouse.

Photo: ABC

You were so popular in the role of Trina, and now Tabyana is bringing her take on the role.  Do you check in on GH? 

SYDNEY:  Don’t cancel me, but no! (Laughs) I don’t have time to watch TV!  I’m very serious.  I’ve just had so much going on here.  I’m also part of clubs, and leadership is also something that’s very important to me.  I love planning things, and when you’re planning things, that also takes up your time.  So, doing that along with school and just trying to keep my GPA up, I just don’t have the time to check in on it.  I think that was kind of part of it for me too.  On a spiritual level, I always believe that you can’t receive other things in your life, great things, acting or otherwise, until you are able to let things go, and so for me, I knew when I was leaving, I really would have to leave mentally and physically. As much as I love General Hospital (and I really cannot wait to see everyone in person, I really can’t wait to have that big reunion!), I really don’t feel like any part of me is still clinging on to General Hospital. I’m so grateful that the audience has also received Tabyana so well, because that’s exactly what I’ve always wanted.  So, I’m really happy for her, and I’m really happy for both of us.  I think we are both in a great place.

Was making the decision to leave GH a difficult one for you?

SYDNEY:  Honestly, no.  I always kind of knew in the back of my mind that it would have to come at some point because as much as I love General Hospital, I’d really been working for college for all of my life.  I wish someone had told me that colleges really don’t look at anything past high school because I was working really hard in elementary and middle school too!  But that’s my point, I’ve always had this dream of, “I’m going to go to college.  I’m going to get that second education.  I’m going to do really well.  I need to get my degree, and possibly even get my doctorate.”  We’ll see if I even want to go that far, but I know for sure that going to college and getting that bachelor’s was really important for me.  So, I knew that took precedence over anything else in my life.

Photo: ABC

What are you studying?

SYDNEY:  Right now, I’m studying sociology.  That might change.  Honestly, as a freshman it’s just been really general classes, still kind of general science, general math.  We’ll see as time goes on if I still want to stick with sociology. So, that’s also been really fun, and just meeting people, and experiencing the college life.

You’re in a gender-neutral acting category at the Daytime Emmys …   Outstanding Younger Performer. How do you feel about that because you’re actually competing against your former castmates, Nicholas and William, in the same category?

SYDNEY:  Coming to college, you meet a lot of people who are non-binary. I’ve always wondered how that would work when we are going to have more actors who identify as non-binary as our generation starts to get older and as we start getting cast in these movies. I actually think we are kind of moving towards the future and in the future, it will all be smooshed together for all of the categories.  We are going to eventually do away with the Best Actor and Actress because a lot of people don’t identify as either.  I think either way, whoever wins is going to win.  I’m just really glad to be nominated, and it works for me!

Courtesy/ABC

If a role came up in a movie or project that interested you, would you do it, or are you just only concentrating on your studies?

SYDNEY:  We’ll see kind of where life takes me.  It would definitely depend on so many things, of course, but if an opportunity were to present itself, it would definitely just be by a case-by-case basis.  Of course, I’m definitely open to doing things in summer too. During the school year, like I mentioned, it’s really important for me to get this degree.

Photo: SMikaylaIG/ABC

Is there any favorite moment you had from your time on General Hospital as Trina that you wish you could have included in your Emmy reel, but didn’t?

SYDNEY:  There were so many good moments!  If I could include any moment, I would include one of the blood scenes.  I had never worked with fake blood, and it was sticky, but ultimately a good experience.  I was acting, but there wasn’t much of me talking.  It was more everyone being concerned for me, like, “Why is she covered in blood?  What’s going on?”  So, I don’t think I included that as much, but if they just wanted me to include amazing makeup, then I could have put it in there!  So, it’ll always be in my heart.  It’ll always be in my personal reel, and I hope that counts for something!

Photo: TimSchaeffer

I’m assuming you like picking out a dress, and then walking the red carpet?

SYDNEY:  I do!  It’s actually funny because I don’t usually enjoy hair and makeup on a day-to-day basis, but I do think I enjoy the creativity of doing my own look for the Emmys.  I get to be somewhat a little different, like a super awesome version of myself.  I wonder, for celebrities who have to go to red carpets every week if they really like it, but for me to do it a few times a year, I really love it.  I love choosing the aesthetic that I’m going for.  This year, I’m definitely trying to do something classy and stylish.  I’m super excited for you guys to see because I’m beaming even as I talk about it now!

The Daytime Emmys are back to being in-person, after two years of being virtual.  Didn’t you have to tape an acceptance speech last year when you were nominated, in case your name was called?

SYDNEY:  Yes!  It was so funny, one of our producers, Nneka Garland, called me, and she was like, “Oh, it’s going to be in person,” and it just like, snapped for me: “Oh, this is going to be live!” I’m looking forward to that this year.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone, giving everyone real, in-person hugs!  I can’t wait!

So, are you rooting for Sydney to take home the gold in the Outstanding Younger Performer category at this year’s Daytime Emmys? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

GH’s Michael E. Knight Chats On: Taking on the Role of Martin Grey, Friendship with James Patrick Stuart, and All My Children’s Tad

Last Thursday night during a livestream interview, General Hospital’s Michael E. Knight chatted with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel about returning to daytime in the role of legal eagle Martin Grey, and mixing it up with some of the most famous notables and actors that currently and historically have graced the screens on the ABC daytime drama series.

In case you missed it, the replay of the conversation with three-time Daytime Emmy winner is now available.  During the chat, Knight reveals what is has been like to play the on-screen half-brother of Genie Francis (Laura), if he enjoys the courtroom scenes in which Martin had to defend some of the most notorious in town including Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier), and more.

Courtesy/ABC

Fans of GH are also enjoying the romantic pairing of Lucy Coe and Martin, pairing Knight with another soap vet, Lynn Herring.  Michael shares that it’s nice to see, and appreciates, the writers creating a fun relationship for a couple that is middle-aged instead of always seeing the younger sets escapades all of the time on daytime TV.

All My Children fans, of course, recall Michael’s memorable performances through the years as Tad Martin, where he became synonymous with Pine Valley.  After AMC came to its conclusion in 2011 on ABC and 2013 with Prospect Park, Knight finally returned to soaps in 2015 in the recurring role of Dr. Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless before joining the cast of GH in 2019.

During the interview, Michael shares behind the scenes stories of working with his on-screen parents, Mary Fickett (Ruth) and Ray MacDonnell (Joe), his enduring on-screen love story with Dixie (Cady McClain), and the heyday of AMC in story, with his on-screen sister, Jenny played by Kim Delaney. When Michael came to GH, viewers recall he actually got to share an inside moment with Kim and the fans, when Martin met Jackie Templeton, then played by Delaney.

During the livestream, Michael recalled several of Tad’s wives, and when one fan asked if Cady McClain might come to GH as Dixie, and that maybe she could be a woman from Martin’s past, Knight shared that it could be interesting.

Photo: ABC

In a surprise appearance later in the livestream, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin, GH), who has an enduring friendship with Michael, and happened to be at Knight’s house, shared some memories of his time as Will Cortlandt on All My Children. Now decades later, things have come full-circle for the good friends as they share screen-time on General Hospital as Valentin and Martin.

Stuart is a Daytime Emmy nominee this year for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category at the upcoming 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and we took a moment to congratulate him on being acknowledged by his peers for the second year in a row.  Currently, James is pulling double duty shooting his Disney+ show, Villains of Valley View, while also taping GH.

Watch the replay of the livestream with Michael E. Knight below.

Then let us know, are you enjoying Martin and Lucy together? What do you think of the idea of Cady McClain coming to GH? Do you want to see more Valentin and Martin scenes? And, what are your favorite memories of Michael’s time as Tad on All My Children? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
