Photo Credit: JPI Studios GH: Will Drew Discover His True Past?

Coming up on General Hospital, Drew (Billy Miller) searches for his memories and decides that he wants Andre (Anthony Montgomery) to prepare to move ahead with the high-risk request to strip him of Jason’s (Steve Burton) memories so that he can retrieve his own.  Will Drew be able to get his life back?

Then, though Carly (Laura Wright) did not intentionally push Nelle (Chloe Lanier) down the stairs, Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) convinces her that her best chance at freedom is to enter a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.  As a result, Carly expects to be sent to a mental institution rather than prison, but what will happen? Here are more teasers for next week’s General Hospital.

You can’t put Carly away it’s time to take Nelle and Ava down

Oh It’s way past time for Carly to be put away. Can’t wait!

Nelle, ehh- I’ve seen much better villainess characters Nel is a weak one..hoohummm

Ava is finally becoming interesting, again..
Ava is never ever to be a saint, she is nasty and I love her nastiness!
good to have the real Ava back.

No worries- Carly will regain he badazz crown and take Nel down, but not Ava it will be a draw.
umm Ava holds Carly’s freedom, the blanket ..

Yes I want Drew to get his memories back and start a new life without Sam…Sam and Jason are soul mates!! GH needs to reunite JaSam and give JaSam back the life that was taken from them 5 yrs ago! #JaSamReunion2018

Drew will discover Kim isnt Oliver’s mom…his mom is Kim’s sister-a plot they done with Nathan, Lisel and Maddie!…also, Kiki’s affair with her mother Ava’s boyfriend Griffen is just a reversal of Ava’s affair with Kiki’s boyfriend Morgan…why redo plots just done a short time ago???-and ReRon isnt event the writer!!!!…this is why i rarely watch anymore and GH has slumped to fourth place!!!

Also…Anna’s story is plot driven…when Faison was on long before there was no hints whatsoever they had slept together and had a child…im sure he would had given a slight hint to that…sorry but this plot sinks the ship along with Genie’s departure and the other two redone plots i mentioned above!!!

Faison never knew they slept together and had no idea Anna was his mother.

Edit button?????? Correction: never knew Anna was Henrik’s mother.

i no longer watch everyday so i missed that part but still there was no clue a relationship ever happened…i e the show stays on the air but i just cant watch everyday!!!

Please give Drew his memories back . Can’t wait for Nelle to be caught in her web of deceit. I think Michael is suspicious and that’s why he is working from home.

I am – so over – Michael… simply the dullest of them all. don’t you just hate it.. when… the beacon of morality.. always has to chime in to either of his parents… “can I just have a moment alone” let’s all upchuck .. when Carly… says to Michael for the millionth time.. you are the fairest person I know

Nelle needs to go. I think Michael believes Carly and he will try to set up Nelle. The easiest way is for her to die in childbirth

Of course, Drew will regain his memories, the whole of the story is to give Drew his old life back.
And-
Valentin is the most feared of all the Cassidines, the devil in disguise!
The writers have turned Valentin into a whimp, a beggar grovelling for love, a weakling..
Shape it up writers– he/Valentin is the badass of the badest of them all.
Shame on the – insert your favorite swear word- writers!!
Valentin is a CASSIDINE! not a sniveler .

Carly/Lauren most likely will be on vacation during her lock-up??
No matter the game Carly will indeed win the battle..

Unfortunately

I love Drew/Billy Miller and cannot wait to see his upcoming story involving getting his memories back! i hope it opens up a whole new world for him with different people and different stories. I like GH but Billy is definitely my favorite. Can’t wait! 🙂

Have you youngsters ever heard of the album Frampton Comes Alive? Because I say, Billy Miller Comes Alive as Drew after discarding the heavy Jason hair coat and after discarding ole mumbling and depressing Sam. Really, his twinkle, his sparkle seems to be coming back. And here’s a thing I noticed last Friday–Drew and Maxie. Why aren’t they a thing? These two are just bubbling over with charismatic effervescence and when they are in scenes together, the glare of that effervescence is indisputable. Honestly, forget Henny Penny! Henrik is a boring loser and with him, the sky really is falling. Do something unpredictable and winning–pair Drew up with Maxie and the good writing and ratings will follow. I mean, come on, really.

Oh, Harry, FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE was THE album of my senior year on high school and I’m thrilled with a “sans Sam” future for Drew…and us. The Great Billy Miller is back with a vengeance while Sam & Jason continue drowning in Sonny/Carly and mob/other crap. Drew is making friends, bonding with his son (how cute are they?) and facing a life without the mob or other albatrosses (Sam). Billy’s back and I couldn’t be happier!

Diane is not a good attorney or she would check to see if any surveillance cameras in the house

I – hope & Pray – that w/Billy Miller… this resurge, uptick, pointing in the right direction… LEADS to effort… connect.. and common sense

WHO NEEDS SONNY – AND – CARLY

piss off Frank Valentini… if you continue your path of destruct

ps: I truly do admire one post.. that said.. this is not the Peter / Nelle / Franco show

I have NEVER been this irate. – two things –

1. Wes Ramsey’ Peter/Heinrick making deals… with both Drew and Sam. tit for tat… he has the flashdrive… from the ornament that Andre gave to Anna.. and she gave to charity. ??? how Heinrick tracked it down.. and again has in his clutches. it was disgust to watch. get him out of jail and Drew has his memories back. as Drew tells him he’s known since January. could have just given it to him. no dice. as Drew walks out. GOOD MAN. same w/Sam. the only reason he’s alive… blah blah blah…. both her men are with. oh she’s still blah.. next to Michael , they are on par equally dullard. suck up to Wes Ramsey’ acting ? he’s just all wrong for the part. not one nuance or expression of his delivery means zilch.

2. barf. Anna kissing Finn. looking all googly eye , doe eyed , eyes brimming with giddy. has at last crashed. no comment. Michael Easton .. his scripture is laugh out loud. his boy wonder facial expression w/pursed lips… is not masculine .

3. COULDN’T Diane have at least thrown in … to HELP along Carly @ her hearing.. that along with Morgan death… Mike having Alzheimers; she recently lost full custody of her step-child Avery. AND she’s a loud overbearing dullard ? help any ? oy! as she was being led out of the courtroom in handcuffs.. she john deeres it as usual.. and plods out of their in her heels. LAURA : LEARN TO WALK.. It’s feminine.. it’s sexy… it’ll help your character . you need this… this emmy consideration REEL has not started.. by all accounts immature and all the “pleading” looks back and forth with her and Sonny. at least give us a grave look. WISHFUL THINKING

4. Ava. groveling trampy… lusty thoughts FOR GRIFFIN. at this point he’s a plot point to feature other characters. what if Kiki gets preggers with ? what will our man of the cloth who’s naked more than all the rest of the cast… save for Roger Howarth WAY TO MUCH touchy feely with Liz… which is starting to creep me out… with his enamored needy eyes. I don’t trust that the writers will take the time to give her a position of POWER – AND – a man whom she’s equally fit and responsive

5. ANOTHER Roger Howarth PROP. coming up.. feature this… which is supposed to be Liz story. Franco asks Liz… he’d like to meet her family… Liz tells him they don’t speak and don’t get along. GOD you can even smell it. ANOTHER lost end for Franco. leave well enough alone !!! drink some paint.

6. I was sick with disgust as Alexis and Finn are @an AA meeting or whathaveyou. as Finn mans up .. and dishes how even when he was cured he continued to use drugs.. for self loathing… ha ha ha ha.. the jokes on us… I laugh at his character… his acting is so bad and does not jive any where near what makes Anna tick. not one bead of emotion plays out here that’s real.

7. it’s a shame what James DePaiva character is being relegated to doing.. it’s topical but the writing stinks. you can tell… the writers faltered on this… the one lone OLTL character that Frank Valentini brought in.. yet stumbled and couldn’t give life to what could have been a doozy. I sure love him.

I love MIKE
I love Julian and Kim
I love Oscar
I love Chase

dag.. I swear it’s so much fun and always feast for the eyes AND these two ACT !!!! Brad and Lucas full steam ahead

what to say to Frank Valentini… you are in a losing battle ? if things do not start adding up

for three years you chose this path. with Shelley / Jean / Chris.

I’m just so irate over Wes Ramsey/Parking Lot Pete and the overtaking of our beloved show. I can’t watch the show. Wes Ramsey cannot act and he is creepy (lack of a better term). He makes me uncomfortable and it’s not the character that he is playing. It’s his Shakespearean fake acting and leering. He’s just dreadful. He’s on every day and is involved with every character. So many long-time viewers are tuning out because of him (and other reasons). Many twitter followers agree with my opinion, and yours, above.

GH’s Mark Teschner Tells Casting Stories of Johnny Wactor, Giovanni Mazza, Rebecca Herbst & Nicholas Chavez

This week during a very informative and insightful conversation, General Hospital’s 11-time Emmy-winning casting director and now a Daytime Emmy Silver Circle honoree, Mark Teschner spoke on finding the talent for specific roles on the ABC daytime drama series throughout his near three and half decades with the show.

During a livestream chat on the Michael Fairman Channel, Teschner recalled some of the behind the scenes casting stories that brought many beloved favorites to the GH family including the late Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando), the newly-arrived, Giovanni Mazza (Gio), longtime fan favorite, Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), and rising star, Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer) to name but a few.

When speaking with sadness over the loss of Wactor, who was shot and killed back on May 25th, and what he brought to the character of Brando, Teschner recalled, “With Johnny, what you see is what you get. You see the most kind decent, standup guy, and that’s innately who he is. So, that quality comes through in his work and with the character.”

Mark explained, “Brando was a raw kind of hothead, troubled kind of character, and Johnny was able to go there. He had a real intensity that he was able to bring to the role, but at the same time, the character of Brando had to have this depth and this giant heart that he doesn’t necessarily reveal when you first see him. Well, Johnny had the biggest heart of anyone you’ll ever meet. So that essence was already there, and then his acting and his skill played the character. Johnny brought so much of who he was to the character, and there was something so authentic about him.”

Giovanni Mazza recently debuted on GH as “Gio”, so what was his road to landing in Port Charles? Teschner shared, “I was casting a recurring role for a 15-year-old on the show, but when I’m doing the audition, sometimes I’ll open it up because we try to cast true to age, really within a year or so.  If you think about it, all the kids in our show are the exact age of the characters that they’re playing. Because if you have somebody that’s older playing younger, it sticks out because they’re not going to blend age-wise. But I did read a number of actors that were older just because they looked interesting. Gio’s audition came in. I was viewing this through self tapes, and there was just something about him. It wasn’t just that he was a great-looking kid, it was just there’s something very soulful about him and something very compelling, and he draws you in. ”

Mark continued, “So with the group of the 15-year-olds that I sent to Frank Valeintini (EP, GH), I said, ‘Hey, I’m including this kid, Giovanni Mazza. I’m well aware he’s too old, but I just want you to see him.’

After having him come into audition, two weeks later, Frank called Mark and told him they were putting Gio under contract. Teschner added, “So, that was an example where it was his first week in LA, it was his first and ever audition. So we got  before anybody else.  I think he’s really gonna develop into, you know, quite a young actor.”

Becky Herbst has been beloved as Elizabeth for decades, and Teschner recounted her audition process and how she came to the role of Elizabeth. “She (originally) auditioned for the role of Sarah Webber. But the role of Elizabeth was created for Becky. While the character of Sarah did not last long, here we are with Becky 30 years later.”

Teschner cited Becky’s casting as a great example. “I always tell actors when they come into audition, you lay it out, you put it all out there, you bring everything you have to that role. You may not get the role, but if you do good work, you get remembered. And it’s so true.”

Nicholas Chavez popped in the role of Spencer Cassadine before exiting the series. Teschner tells how Chavez came onto the GH casting radar. “Nicholas sent his self tape in from Florida and the rest is history. He had a meteoric impact on the show.” Mark added, “You always have an expectation and the hope that they’re (the actor) going to nail it and run with it. But sure, there are actors, you think, ‘They’re gonna be awesome,’ and then all of a sudden it goes to another level. With Nicholas Chavez, we knew he’d be amazing, but you know, who knew? Well, we did.”

Watch the full conversation with Mark Teschner below where he talks about even more of the casting stories behind some of your GH favorites, then and now.

Bryan Craig Teases ‘Who Could It Be’ in Response to General Hospital’s Returning Mystery Man

Since General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini dropped a major bombshell of what’s to come on the long-running daytime drama at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards, the guessing games have begun of just what former GH actor is returning to the cast this summer.

Speaking with ABC’s On The Red Carpet, as previously reported, Valentini shared, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.”

That has led to major online speculation that it could be anyone from: Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky), Greg Vaughn (ex-Lucky), Ted King (ex-Lorenzo Alcazar), Nicholas Chavez (ex-Spencer), and Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan) among others, that might be the gentlemen being referenced.

On Wednesday, responding to a post on the subject from Soap Opera Digest, Bryan Craig commented, “Who could it be ….”  Now, clearly he can just be having some fun with the situation to throw fans off-track, or he might be giving us a tease of what’s to come.

Before exiting GH, the actor won two Daytime Emmys for his performances as Morgan Corinthos in 2016 and 2017.  Craig appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared most recently in Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel, plus several independent films.

The character of Morgan was killed-off the show when Olivia Jerome set a bomb that exploded in the car that Morgan got into, but was meant to kill Olivia’s brother Julian Jerome. Morgan’s death caused a huge split in the relationship of Carly and Sonny.

So, do you think Bryan Craig is just having fun with the audience, or do you think it’s possible he is the big return Frank Valentini is talking about? Comment below.
