GH’s Amanda Setton Talks Brook Lynn & Chase, Baby Bailey Louise, Being a Q and Her Emotional Scenes

Photo: ABC

Friday’s episode of General Hospital saw the return of Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton) to Port Charles after her brief departure to Bensonhurst.  After all, Brook Lynn has been through the emotional ringer of late.  After passing off Maxie Jones’ (Kirsten Storms) daughter as her own, to protect the little bundle of joy from her biological father, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), all that came to a halt, when Peter wound up dead and Maxie came to the Q’s to take home her daughter.

In emotional scenes played to perfection by Amanda Setton, Brook Lynn knew she had to do the right thing and give the child back to its rightful biological mother and in doing so, Maxie forever named the child “Bailey Louise” and the two women bonded as mommas to the little girl.

Now, in a new exclusive virtual interview that dropped today on The Michael Fairman Channel, Setton chats with Fairman about becoming Brook Lynn Quartermaine, and her thoughts on the emotional scenes between herself and Storms.

In addition, Amanda weighs-in on Brook Lynn’s burgeoning on-screen love story with Chase (Josh Swickard), and what it has been like to play the often-contentious father/daughter scenes between Ned and Brook Lynn with soap vet, Wally Kurth.

Daytime fans first met Amanda when she played gold-digging stripper, Kimberly Andrews, on One Life to Live, and the character fell in love with Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn), but before that Setton appeared in the primetime hit, Gossip Girl.  Amanda shares some moments from her time in Llanview, her appreciation of working on a daytime soap, and more.

Watch the full conversation with Amanda below, and make sure to ‘subscribe’ to the Michael Fairman Channel for more celebrity interviews and features.

Now let us know, are you hoping Brook Lynn and Chase go forward with a romance? What did you think of Amanda’s performance when she had to give Bailey Louise back to Maxie? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Amanda’s portrayal of Brook Lynn is one of the best parts of GH!

Amanda’s portrayal of Brook Lynn and the writers treatment of this legacy character have been spot-on since she was reintroduced a few years ago. She seamlessly fits with all her screen partners and the pairing with Josh Swickard is pure magic. Hopefully a best supporting actress nomination is in her near future.

And finally this week, the wardrobe department is stepping up and putting her in outfits that don’t include blazers.

You said it! Give her some attractive clothes. Are they trying to make her less attractive or what?

I love Brook Lynn’. One of my favorite characters. I cried with her when she gave Bailey to Maxie…

Yes, that was heart wrenching. I don’t know how Maxi can repay this debt, even if it was all out of love. Speaking of Maxi. I do not care for she and Austin as a couple. I would rather see him with Britt.

Agree with your assessment of Maxie and Austin, Violet. If they insist on pairing Roger with someone much younger, Britt (IRL only about 2 years older than Kirsten Storms) doesn’t have the ick factor.

Now, if they want to go in the other direction, a pairing of Austin and Alexis would put together two exceptionally strong actors who could play off each other’s quirks.

Maxie and Austin do NOT work. Maxie needs to find a “Chase” though that never was possible since Nathan. And I don’t think that Spinelli is wanting to return with a major storyline, though he and Ellie are no longer together. Time to SORAS Georgie and James a bit to catch up with Charlotte. I do see Austin with Britt, though the idea of Alexis is actually quite interesting. Everyone talks about Todd from OLTL, but I know Roger from ATWT as Paul Stenbeck and would love to have a bit more of that character show up. At this point,… Read more »

A huge fan ever since Gossip Girl days. Always wished for more. Enjoyed the OLTL days and so happy to see her now on GH.

Great interview too… thanks to her for sharing.

Amanda is a dream! She revitalized the Q’s! She is a Tracy in the making! Her and Jane are pure magic together! And like she said in the interview, her and Wally are believable as father and daughter. The best part about this interview, Amanda embraces daytime and she could stay on the show for years to come. Fingers crossed!

Love Brooklyn, beautiful woman and great actress too. Let her get together with Chase. Great chemistry. Britt should be with Austin it seems a better fit than Maxie! Maxie needs a new player in town instead.

Agree with all you say. Definitely no to Austin and Maxi especially with three ready-made kids. He and Britt are great together and maybe a child of their own.

Does anyone know the name of the song they played during the montage of Chase & Brook Lynn at the end of March 11th episode. Thanks

I think it was The Joker and The Queen. Check it out on Utube if you can.

Well, I guess we know who will be singing Brook Lynn’s music. Remember how well Chase sang at the Nurses Ball, sexy dancer too. They make a good couple.

Violet, pardon the pun but your words are music to my ears. Amanda/Brook Lynn and Chase/Josh are pure magic together. It wouldn’t surprise me if she miraculously regains her singing voice just to serenade the handsome, dashing detective. Finally, something to look forward to. Violet, is it just me or does another new couple, Maxie and Austin, give you the creeps? Something is waaaayyy off there. Not sure what.

Soaphound, First, I think the same thing about Brook Lynn getting her voice back, only because she just takes it for granted that she’ll never get it back and secondly because she doesn’t even try. I hate to admit that I’ve never been a big Maxi fan. I know everyone adores her but she rubs me the wrong way, and do not understand why men are so attracted to her. So, on that note I thoroughly agree that she and Austin do not belong together. I, on the other hand am crazy about Roger Howarth except during the pre tumor… Read more »

Maybe that’s my problem. I like them both but just not together. It’s like watching your real-life friends walk down the aisle when you just know it won’t last two years!

Yes I think her and Chase need to be together they make a perfect couple.

Finn Carr is General Hospital’s New Rocco Falconeri

Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu’s son, Rocco is getting a new look! Enter young actor, Finn Carr, who will take over the role on-air beginning this week.

Carr is very familiar to TV fans who have watched Hot in Cleveland, Fuller House, Criminal Minds and more.  He has also appeared in streaming series for Netflix including Alexa & Katie, and most recently in an episode of Paramount+’s, I Carly.

Now that Rocco is a bit older (with Carr taking over the role), will he figure more into the story of Dante/Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) relationship, and the arrival of Dante’s buddy, Cody (Josh Kelly) on to the Port Charles scene?

The role of Rocco was first played by twins through 2017. Since then, Mason Tannous, O’Neill Monahan, and Brady Bauer have all played the part at one time or another.  In story, it was actually Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) who carried baby Rocco when she was implanted with Dante and Lulu’s stolen embryo.

Soap Opera Digest first reported this latest ‘Rocco’ casting switch in their latest issue on newsstands now.

So, please welcome Finn to the cast of GH in the comment section below!
