GH’s Cynthia Watros Talks On Taking Over The Role Of Nina & Ingo Rademacher Dishes Jax’s New Love Interest

Today on June 3rd, Daytime Emmy winner, Cynthia Watros is set to begin taping all-new episodes of General Hospital as she steps into the role of Nina Cassadine, last played by Michelle Stafford, who has left the ABC daytime drama series and headed back to The Young and the Restless to reprise her signature role of Phyllis Summers.

Watros, best-known for her delicious portrayal of Annie Dutton on Guiding Light, and who was last seen on daytime on Y&R, is back to the grind of the soaps taking on the complex Nina.  Add to that, it is clear that GH is setting up a potential love triangle, or new love interest for her, now that Jasper Jacks is back in Port Charles with GH fan favorite Ingo Rademacher returning to the show.

Last month on the recent GH Nurses’ Ball episodes, we saw Nina (then Stafford) lock eyes with Jax, and the two demonstrated an instant attraction to each other.  Add to that in story; Jax was revealed to be the new 50 percent owner of Aurora Media, which Nina’s Crimson Magazine falls under, putting them in each other’s path in more ways than one.

Michael Fairman TV chatted with Cynthia and Ingo along with other members of the media at last week’s ABC Summer Press Roundtable junket, and here were some intriguing and insightful moments from the conversations below.

When we asked if Cynthia had a conversation with Michelle Stafford on taking over the role of Nina, Watros responded: “I did.  We had lunch together, and I have to say, Michelle is an amazing, lovely, giving woman.  Just to be able to sit across from her and talk about Nina and to talk about the show, I was just in awe of her generosity.  I will always be a fan of Michelle’s.  She actually reached out to me and said, ‘If you ever want to call or text…’ and I said, ‘Let’s have lunch!’  So, we found and afternoon and spent like three hours just talking about it.”

Since Watros has brought the cray-cray to her best known role of Annie on GL and is so adept as an actress to go from that to playing grave reality, Cynthia weighed in on how she sees Nina and the challenges of being a recast in a soap role: “Nina has all of this stuff that I can’t wait to play.  She’s got stuff that she hasn’t explored for a long time because her life is going pretty well right now.  What happens though when your life doesn’t go really well?  You start exploring those things that you thought were sleeping a little bit, you know, that weren’t necessarily bubbling up to the surface.  So, I like it all: when a character’s life is going well and when a character’s life is not going well. Because I’m playing Nina now, it’s going to be different.  It’s going to be challenging.  It’s the first time I’ve ever taken over a role that someone else has played.  I don’t want to totally go off, so people go, “Wow.  Nina’s totally different,” but of course, I want to make it my own.  Again, I’m an actor who likes to use all of the tools.  I like it all … the funny, the not so funny, the playful, and the crazy.”

As to the timing of Watros returning to the soaps at this time in her life … and how it went down that she landed her new gig at GH, she revealed: “It sounds not very dramatic, but I got a phone call.  Just a phone call asking, ‘Would you be interested?’  Guiding Light will always be in my heart because I had such a good time doing Annie, and I was on Young and the Restless and Another World for half of a second.  So, daytime has always been in my life and in my world.  My last show was in Atlanta, and my daughters were in high school in LA, and it’s hard to go back and forth for them, for me, and for my life as a mom.  So, I kind of took my acting and said, ‘Well, I’m going to slow it all down until they graduate high school.’  They graduate high school June 2nd and I start GH June 3rd.  So, it just seemed like it just made sense.”

As to what the future holds for Nina as she takes over the role, Watros shared: “I can tease that I get to play with this guy (Ingo) a lot, and Nina is trying to find a stronger role in the magazine where she is really going to step up in making that a success and her love for the magazine , and trying to navigate her relationship with Jax.”

Cynthia will also get to work with Nina’s present love interest, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), which the actress is also excited about:“I have to say, I have not met him, but I have been watching the show, and he is just phenomenal.  I love his character.  I love how he is this sort of like bad guy, but it seems like the women really dig him.”

Watros says she is excited to work with Maura West (Ava), Laura Wright (Carly), and Billy Miller (Drew) from the cast.  She has previously worked with Laura and Billy in her soap career. As to her nerves for her first week at the ABC studios where GH is taped, Cynthia shared that she is: “Less nervous, more excited. I feel like a 20-year-old back in soaps.  I remember Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light) back in the rehearsal room, and I was off script, and she was on the show for a long time before me, and I was new. I was yelling my lines, and she goes, ‘Excuse me! Can you tell this actress not to act so early in the morning?’ (Laughs) I feel like I’m going to do that again.  So, I’ve got to tone it all down.” (Laughs)

For Ingo, he certainly has a view as to how Jax fits into the canvas of Port Charles: “Jax is to me, and I’ve only just been able to put it into words now that Captain America came out, but he’s ‘Captain America’.  He’s all about fairness.  If he sees a bully, he will stand up for the person who is being bullied.  So, that’s who he is.  He’s the white knight.  He’s the person who will always do the right thing.”

Now that Jax has big time ownership in Aurora Media and thus Crimson, does he see the sparks flying with Nina? Ingo reveals: “Yeah, basically he walks in, and she goes, ‘What are you doing in my office?’ and he goes, ‘Actually, it’s my office.’  When I heard about him doing that magazine, I was a little surprised because that’s usually much too small for Jax.  He’s more of a Richard Gere in Pretty Woman character, corporate leader, takes corporations apart, sells pieces … this is, I think really for his daughter, Josslyn (Eden McCoy).  He’s thinking about the future.  Also, to keep him busy in an actual job that he might be good at.   I think it’s a big change in lifestyle for him where before it was about businesses which were much more global.”

As to what is behind Jax’s attraction to Nina, Ingo summed it up by sharing: I think Jax is attracted to Nina the first time he sees her.  I have a feeling he already knew who she was the first time he sees her at the Nurses’ Ball, because he’s been studying Aurora Media before purchasing it.  He’s done his background work, and to piss off a Cassadine is just a bonus.  Also, I think what is interesting for Nina’s character is the two different guys.  She’s engaged to this more mysterious character, and then, you’ve got this jolly, upfront one going, ‘Hey!  How’s it going?  Everybody having a good day?’ (Laughs)  He’s very confident as well, but in a different way.  I think it’s nice for the story for Nina to be tugged between two completely different men.”

So, excited to see the debut of Cynthia in the role of Nina? Are you up for a triangle between Jax/Nina/Valentin? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.  But first, watch Cynthia’s Emmy-winning moment as Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her work on Guiding Light.

I cannot wait to see her in this role

I can not wait for Cynthia to become Nina, and that’s due to the fact I don’t care for M.S. I don’t welcome her return to Y&R .but we can’t have everything, right? Also, being shown in her worst drunken Phyllis charactor, will not be easy to watch. You’re just waiting to see whose life she’ll wreck next.
I agree with what C.W says about playing opposite Jax and Valentin. I’m hoping Valentin will be out of the picture soon, when she finally finds out what he’s done TO her and not for her. They say Sasha is really Liesel’s daughter, making them cousins and not mother and daughter. What on earth did he get out of that? To me, he’s a pitiful little man, especially standing next to that tall, blond, blue eyed Australian hunk.
Just a note here on how much Iam enjoying Roger/Franco’s “cleaner” shaven look . I don’t mind beards (real ones) but these half-ass, scroungy, almost vagrant looking facial things a lot of men are sporting these days is a real turn off for this old timer. Sorry, I know it’s the thing now, but please be honest gals, how many of you really find it sexy or attractive, and do you really enjoy the rug burn? Old minds really want to know, and guys, how much attention does it take keeping it that way, or can you just let it run wild?

Oh, my dear Violet! You are preaching to the choir here on the “pro-clean shaven look” for men! I am totally turned off to the hirsute facial trend that seems to be everywhere these days! On most, it simply looks sloppy and grubby….like these guys are just too lazy to be bothered to groom themselves!!! Ugh! Don’t stand so close to me! Hah! I am especially against it when a man is otherwise very handsome…I cannot understand why they would want to cover up the full glory of their beautiful facades with face fur! Of course, there are exceptions to this rule…some males look quite distinguished and attractive with a well-kept beard, mustache or what-not, but they are in the minority and pretty much had their own individual, well-maintained signature styles established long before this scuzzy stuff became the current rage…think Tom Selleck’s indispensable facial trademark, Don Johnson’s sexy stubble ala Miami Vice or Mr. Fairman’s always impeccably-groomed appearance as evidenced by the photos on his websites! However, that which truly works for the few aforementioned certainly does not apply to the masses! As for the hazards of “rug burn?” Yuck! Even a nubby one-day growth is more than my delicate complexion can bear! “Shave or stay away” is my motto!!! It’s served me well….LOL!

I do not like beards!
They are dirty– have snot, bad-breath, food crumbs, and critters in them YCK..

Imagine all the crud a beard collects, especially on a hot sweaty day or after eating sloppy Joes AHAA.
beards are dirty!.. They might even stink!

And those guys with the half-butt mohawk hairstyles are NASTY UGLY they look like a drunk shaved half their head..

Just wanted to jump in with my opinion BWAAHA!

Violet Lemm

SuOOO
Feel free to jump in any time, especially when we agree, ha! Funny, you bringing up the beards. I don’t really mind a full on beard if it is taken care of and litter free. Yesterday, watching Curtis, I was thinking how attractive it looks on him, but that grungy facial stuff like Shiloh and some others sport these days are disgusting. Oh yes, those haircuts you mentioned are the worst, aren’t they? First of all, they look like convicts or a military recruit, I don’t know, but I hate the style too.

Hey, Violet! How are you? 😉 Funny you mentioned “Shiloh.” I just posted a comment and I included him in my looks good with a beard list. I think he’s very sexy…twinkling eyes and all for a predator.

Violet Lemm

Hi Rebecca
Nice to hear from you even if we dont agree. Sorry, he’s just got the kind of face I’d like to run over with a lawn mower. Where you see twinkling eyes, I see pure evil. He’s done such an amazing job of playing Shiloh, I don’t think I could ever like him in anything ever again. I just hope he doesn’t turn up on another show too soon, after he leaves GH.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Thanks, Shay. Am glad to hear that someone loathes this unshaven look as much as I do. This grizley Shiloh has got to be the worst. It’s like these men do not use mirrors anymore. I love Eric’s looks on Days, but lately, when I watch him, it’s like OMG, do you really not know what you look like?
Hopefully Shiloh will soon be seeing his last dawn of days. His minions, followers or whatever we call them are leaving, one by one.
Margaux and Nina headed back to Y&R, and am not looking forward to Nelle’s return, but I guess that’s the only way to assure Michael gets his son back. Hopefully, some good viewing ahead.

Harry

I don’t like beards either but having said that, I detest the hairless, waxen chest look on men too. I say take the hair off their faces and implant it into their chests.

Violet Lemm

Harry, I like certain beards as on Curtis, and I like mustaches that are trimmed properly,i.e Tom Sellleck, and I do love chest hair, as long as it doesn’t cover the shoulders and back as was Robin Williams, RIP.

Shay, Violet, Su…I also can’t stand beards from stubbly to long, or bushy. Disliked it when it spread to baseball players. And David Letterman. Ugh! I will say there are two exceptions who do wear them well…Gandalf in Lord Of the Rings, and Dumbledore in Harry Potter. But they were appropriate for the roles they played. And British actors of course. Can’t wait for season two of Discovery Of Witches. Found some really good DOW videos on YouTube to try to get me by.

AHAA! the youtube– 0ohhh my gawd!!
the women of that era of soaps look/acted like out of control crazy wacko women lol
Whoa the women were portrayed as raging crazy.. ahaa!

Ashely acted as if she escaped from a mental ward ..
(they all did, actually)
What an Insult to women !!

* Old-time wako Soap Divas as portrayed in comedy skits in SNL and other in-kind soap skits is that youtube for sure —

You’re definitely onto something, su000! I personally don’t care for overacting, never have. It’s almost as though some actors — and it’s not just the actresses — feel that they can grab Emmy gold by screaming longer and louder, or by crying at the drop of a hat and carrying on incessantly, sobbing, sniffing, slobbering… I must wonder whether directors are still on set.

I like believability: in plotlines and in acting. You don’t have to knock me over the head with either. Just tell the story. Just convey characterization. Be real.

And this comes from a clean-shaven, clean-cut, generally clean-living guy… I’ve thoroughly enjoyed your comments, su000, as well as those by Violet and Shay on the topic of beards. I certainly wouldn’t argue with any of you ladies on this issue, not by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin!

I can’t wait to see her debut as Nina, I’m really bummed about Michelle leaving but I think Cinthia will be great recast for sure. as for the triangle, I’m really hoping they do ingo right. I think he’s been giving the short stick in the past when it came to Sonny and company, I really hope they let Jax be more assertive and not this guy that can be made to look like a fool just to make Sonny and Jason look like they always have to be right or win with any one who doesn’t belong to their inner circle.

I know there are a lot of diverse opinions on Michelle Stafford as Nina, but I personally loved her in the role, and I’m gonna miss her. I wish ABC/GH had done more to keep her, rather than letting Y&R swoop in and pull the rug out from everybody. But that’s water under the bridge at this point.

I’m excited to see what Cynthia Watros does with Nina. She was fantastic as Annie Dutton on Guiding Light. She more than has the acting chops to come in and not only fill Michelle’s shoes, but make the role her own. Like the potential pairing of Jax and Nina, and what Valentin will do to prevent it from happening. He’s never faced an adversary quite like Jax before. Tons of storyline potential there.

I saw a video interview – not sure if these interviews were one and the same, but Ingo seemed to indicate he’s on contract. Can anyone confirm that?

Its a blessing. Staff was horrible as Nina and Michelle is a good actress. She will be a sight for sore eyes on Y&R. Gina is a mean, unlikable version of Phyllis. Staff will be much better with the new Adam. As far as Cynthia, she will make Nina her own and is capable of shinning with Jax.

Rodd

Of course I’ll miss Michelle, but I was a big fan of Cynthia’s when she played Annie on GL. She’s a proven talent, so I can’t wait to see her take on this character. Best Wishes to her.

Cynthia is a wonderful actress, I agree with you Rodd. I loved her as Annie Dutton on Guiding Light. She was cray cray lol Cynthia will do a good job on GH as the new Nina.

Patrick

HOW … Nina managed to be right up their @GH as one of – MY – favorite pairing… w/Shelly AND Chris helming any thing… I don’t know

if you look @the whole canvas… I truly think… @Shelly AND Chris , may have found a beading on what makes Nina and Valentin Kick… moreso w/Valentin , than Nina. Meaning, Give Nina MORE backbone… let Nina help, stand alongside, solve, play parenting, passion ensue… etc etc etc

for instance … currently, Nina shouldn’t be so “coy” nervous stammer w/the likes of Jax AND Valentin… well not so much w/Valentin.. altho she sure needs to put him in his place.

you know.. when you see ALL the comings and goings; you wonder about the writing !!! or lack

oy does the audience even stand a chance. KNOWING @Frank Shelly AND Chris LONG LONG LONG dismal tenure.

Nina and VAlentin from the get go have always managed to weather the storm or deserted blanks.

Up to this point.. Jax stature PLUS eye to eye are still stirring. so here’s hoping that Shelly AND Chris manage to eck out any thing. they certainly can’t undo all the damage Frank Valentini manages with his dullard troupe. ???? Kelly MOnaco’ Sam did what ? with the day of dawn ? NOTHING.. Jason double snore WITH ? threw a couple of jabs beat the shit out of Shiloh. wam bam thank you mam… im outa here. altho.. Sam has kept us all “ABREAST” or two on her new acting SKILL (s)… NICE HIP SURGERY Sam. she’s on top of her game… double uno dose

AT LAST : Shiloh is within reach ! captivating stuff as Sam reads him the riot act. @hospital… as Shiloh LOOKS >>>>>>> !!!!!! ???? within REACH argh! WOWSAH TIME TO SHOW Shiloh

I welcome you , MS. Watros’ to the fold… you are in the best company w/Valentin AND CHarlotte. GAME ON high brow yield folks cause this scintillating titillation is

Patrick
Patrick

^^^^ THIS THIS THIS !!! Valentin HOT ME OUT

per Cynthia ! “…Nina’s present love interest, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin), which the actress is also excited about:“I have to say, I have not met him, but I have been watching the show, and he is just phenomenal. ”

Oh Cynthia ; are you in for it

James Patrick Stuart is – beyond – phenomenal !!!

pulse quicken
mind stir
caught

this is thee dance of the show

not one man compares – dullard troupe

think Sonny / Jason /Michael / Peter / Finn/ Franco

you have Billy Miller’ who’s climbing Kilimanjaro ??? Hello ? Find you
Dr. Neil – who’s intrigue may be wasted temporarily on Alexis… get on with it
Shiloh – who’s finally showing humane and physical treat @hospital bed. Yep
always missing Ned
Julian…. he’s due for a real story about him… flesh out this wonderment
Brad and Lucas – absolutely they draw

so you can see people… who needs Frank Valentini and his dullard troupe… I care not ONE IOTA that Carly is pregnant… all her empathy compassion endearment is stuck in her big feet. she has no root value.. never did.

a lot of weight and carry is happening with Valentin and Nina… I’m certain if Shelly and chris focus.. hang your hat on something… otherwise… your stench reeks

Patrick

TOP DOG – Jon Lindstrom’ Kevin – no –

that’s shared w/JPS’ Valentin

always Big Mac
W/Scotty just chompin @the bit

Patrick
Patrick

thee – one – thing i’d advice Ms. Watros’

let’s not take on the addled vice of Nina childlike coquettish manner

OKAY

we get that Nina spent a good 20 plus years in a coma…. all this meaning her womanhood was coma. hence , all Nina had to draw on was her years , presumably under 21 years of age.

no hesitancy no tilt of the head no coil inward … FULL ON STATURE

we are talking FULL ON WOMAN charged to the gills because you come from high brow command intellect

Passion because the world is yours
what do they know? that you don’t have – them – wrapped around “your” lil’ finger and/or wherewithal. just top shelf

the first family of Port Charles , once again, reign supreme

Nina / Valentin / Charlotte

@GH let’s lose Sasha… perhaps beside catching a cold w/Michael.. or an STD… they drive off the cliff

I love watching her acceptance speech for the Guiding Light Emmy! Guiding Light was the best and the acting was always phenomenal. General Hospital makes another great casting move. Welcome Cynthia! And welcome back to Rebecca Budig, another GL star! Daytime viewers are missing out as GH should be pulling in more than 3 million viewers. Get rid of that awful lead-in show GMA Day. Bring back One Life! Or put one of those prime-time game shows before GH. And why hasn’t GH been renewed yet? Get with it ABC!

I’m not familiar with Cynthia as an actress, but she’s getting some good reviews here. What I do hope is they change her from a more scatter brained role. I did like her when she originally bought Crimson and took it over. It looked good on her. But she seems to have slipped since then. Don’t like what she’s done to Willow who I really like, and her dress at the Nurses Ball. And for the life of me I can’t see why Valentin is so obsessed with Nina. So I hope Jax isn’t either. Haven’t seen a good mate for him since Alexis or Lois. Never a Brenda fan. And speaking of Valentin, wish the writers would have turned him into more of a Helena clone with Cassadine plots afoot. I think they have underused James Patrick, like they do other really good actors like Margaux and Rebecca,

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Rose, I agree with all you just said, and today watching Nina trying to persuade Ava to do her article for Crimson, I thought she’d make a good contortionist, and was thinking how glad that she’s leaving soon, but then remembered that she’s going to Y&R, and what a bitch she was as Phyllis. Boy, can’t win for losing, huh? At the end, when Nina told Jax about Ava, he did not look happy. Maybe I misread him. Something else bothering me lately. Not to be unkind, but does Maxie/Kirsten not look too good these days, or is it my imagination?

Patrick
Patrick

Kirsten has certainly gone from painfully thin to , what now appears to be “bloated” . seriously folks this is with respect. I thought perhaps an overweight gain. there may be underlying issues as well ? no? what really triggered this was when she was working the Nurses’ Ball. hated the extensions.

Cid Weinberg

I am looking forward to Cynthia bringing her energy, verbal tennis & lobbing the ball with her fellow actors. I’m home on sabbatical making time when I can to watch the fantastic 4 soaps through October. Wish all would edit, edit, edit their terribly large casts. Streamline the storytelling & distribute the wealth. Give you a shot GH…you have the goods, need to balance the Sonny/Carly airtime with rest of the town. I know mobsters have been apart of the serial storyline since it’s inception. Watching old clip of many soaps on YouTube, lately. Where is the heart? Who are you? Make me feel, make me cry, make me care. I will tune in. I’ll be watching. I’ve loved LW since GL, she makes you feel. MW has always taken me there since ATWT. Nancy Lee from SB days commanded your attention. JZ, Bobbie’s rich history is soo underused on GH.

I’ll write about Days, Bold, Young as other articles come up.
It’s been fun getting back in touch with my soap opera roots.

It’s on the page. Actors, script, camera. We do not need convoluted plots, far far fetched absurdity or boring.
Escapism, romance, humor. And heart.

Come on daytime…you are not gone, yet, bring it! And challenge yourself.

Is Jax the owner of Aurora Media or not? Where does Nina get the right to tell him what or what not to do? I loved every minute of him telling Ava exactly what he thought of her murdering Connie and switching out Morgan’s meds. I also enjoyed Nina’s obvious discomfort watching him do it.
I also liked Jordan using her detective skills to figure out how she actually got Ryan’s kidney. I just knew last week, that it must have been an awfully large canary, for those five to all have feathers hanging out of their mouths. I wonder how Stella will feel, when she figures out that she was left out of the conspiracy.

That means that T. K. Weaver, who has played the character from 2016-2019 has been replaced.  Weaver responded to inquiries from fans on Twitter by stating.  “I was recast” and added, “I found out a couple weeks ago but I was asked not to tell anyone.  Broke my heart.
