General Hospital

GH's Dominic Zamprogna's Power Performance of the Week!

© JPI Studios

On yesterday’s fantastic episode of General Hospital, where parents and their children are reunited after the tragic and serious General Hospital Ski Trip bus accident, it was Dominic Zamprogna as Dante Falconeri who delivered another nuanced and stirring performance with his mix of trying to hold himself together while being fearful of the loss of his mother, Olivia, who is still in critical condition following surgery from her internal injuries suffered in the bus accident.

The episode was also filled with little nuggets especially from Steve Burton (Jason) getting to spend a few moments with his son, Jake ( thanks to Liz), Chad Duell (Michael) for playing the understated hero, and Jonathan Jackson (Lucky) for his monlogue about fatherhood to Siobhan.

But in the end, it was Zamprogna’s scene while at Olivia’s bedside that made many reach for the hankies!  And so,  On-Air On-Soaps names Dominic this week’s Power Performance of the Week. You can watch the entire episode at ABC.com or view our Video of the Day on the MF Soaps Homepage of Dominic’s scenes.

The Jan 5, 2011 episode is one of the best episodes in a long time! While Dante’s scenes were wonderful as were others, the scenes with Jason and Jake and Sam and Elizabeth were the best! Dante’s performance was emotionally powerful but so was Jason’s. The emotion in Jason’s face, eyes and finally smiles was so very powerful and more subtle and deeper. They all did an amazing job with this episode! Want more!

I really could not agree more. The actor, Dominic Zamprogna, is amazing. I literally cryed along with him. The pain and fear he showed for his mother was so heartwarming and, for me, it stole the whole show. There is nothing more beautiful than the relationship between mother and child and Dominic (Dante) and Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) show it perfectly on screen, perfection. He’s one amazing actor and General Hospital is lucky to have him on board.

I think DZ is the only actor on the show that will be nominated for a EMMY because he is that good but also because he is the only actor that the writers care about and really write for.

I just love Dominic, and I started even crying the thought that Olivia could die. I can almost relate to Dante’s worry, because one time I was worried about my mother when she had to go to work and the roads were horrible. After an hour my mother still had not gotten to work yet, and I was scared that something bad happened to her. In my relief my mother finally made it. I think that Dominic deserves an emmy because of his good acting. I started crying when Dominic did at his mother’s bedside. I’m glad though that Olivia… Read more »

I love Dominic and he makes Dante so real. I don’t understand whey he did not get an emmy nomination, but he should of. Dominic plays his part so well, and I cried as well when he was crying at his mother’s bedside. The fact that Dante was so heartbroken at the thought his mother could die made me sad. Dominic is the best actor in ABC Daytime and I simply love him.

I do like Dominic’s acting as well. I don’t know if he is my favorite actor though, because I still like Steve Burton. I did feel for Dante when the thought of his mother could die. It broke my heart. I think that my two favorite actors in daytime are Steve Burton and Dominic Zamprogna. It is hard to tell though, if I think that Dominic deserved an emmy. It depends on the votes, and he may deserve one. Maybe he will get one next year.

I like Dominic too, and I think that he is the best actor on the show. I do not usually like short guys, but he is something else. I love him with Lulu and I hope that they stick together. Lante is my favorite couple on the show. I loved it when Dante stuck by his mother, knowing that she could die. The tears he showed touched my heart, and he is the best guy on the show.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
