General Hospital fans circle Monday, August 27th as a not-to-be missed episode of the ABC soap!  According to a very intriguing and exciting tweet this afternoon from series executive producer, Frank Valentini something big is happening on Monday’s air show!

Valentini tweeted, “The air show on Monday is not to be missed! We’ve been keeping a huge surprise under wraps.”

So what could the surprise be soapers?  What we do know is  Anna has been searching for Robin, could she stumble upon the mystery patient? And Jerry Jacks is about to reveal his deadly plot for Port Charles!

Whatever the surprise is , or who it is, we can’t wait to see how Valentini and Carlivati deliver it to GH fans everywhere! Weigh-in!

    I think it is Victor! I’m excited no matter what I is. Today’s episode was fantastic. I am loving that Olivia is a seer. I hope eventually she can accept it and use her powers for good… helping Dante solve crimes….find missing children…..etc.

      I don’t think it is Victor. It looked like a woman. TSJ is filming a movie in Germany now according to his web site.

    I hope it has something to do with TSJ!

    PLEASE tell me Victor is coming back!!!
    i miss him soo much <3

      August 24, 2012 at 10:21 pm

      i can’t think they’d bring Victor into all this… not now. This is going to be Jerry Jax, Jasper Jax, Ewen (probably a Jax too), and a frantic chase of who / what is happening to Port Charles peoples… and their water! And the Robin/Anna/Luke stuff…

      I think all the guys with their shirts off today was like – who was in the shower and getting any of the poisoned water on them?

      but someday, it would be nice to get Victor back.

        I think we will get Victor back. Just not now. I have a feeling its an old GH character. Em?? Bobbie??

      Please don’t let it be Rebecca B.

        Thats what people don’t realize. Its actually Rebecca who’s on Monday

        Please oh please oh please, I have nothing against the actress, but I cannot STAND Greenlee!!!

      August 25, 2012 at 6:36 am

      Oh gosh, I agree, please don’t let it be her!

      • MBmomof3

        August 25, 2012 at 1:52 pm

        I agree, but I saw a promo still and the person looked alot like Rebecca Budig. I hope it’s Georgie.

    • Gloria E

      August 25, 2012 at 4:36 pm

      How do u know it’s Rebecca Budig? Greedlee was my least favorite character on my once fav soap AMC…looks like I am not the only one from the other posts..GH has been sooo good under Frank & Ron’s direction please don’t mess up with her…

        That’s cause is not the big surprise is the orgianal Maxie is back as of September 5 or 6. So that is the huge surprise. Victor might be next year during May sweeps. But i blief is Maxie.

    It didn’t look like robin. But it was definitely a girl.

    wow can not wait sounds like exciting episode just wondering who is in that room

  8. Christine

    August 24, 2012 at 9:15 pm

    I think we will know the identity of the person who is pulling Jerry’s strings.

  9. Karen

    August 24, 2012 at 9:21 pm

    The only big news that would make me happy would be that OLTL is coming back. Otherwise…don’t care. I am glad for the GH fans….but us OLTL & AMC still suffer (:!!

    • Christy

      August 24, 2012 at 10:14 pm

      mmm… yes, I suffer every time I get to see Todd Manning on GH!


      you don’t what your missing girl! I’ll always miss OLTL (apparently) but I love that I can get a TM fix on GH now. Todd & Starr & John McBain are all GH stars now! And sometimes Blair or Tea comes for a visit. I’ll take what I can get!

      • susan M.

        August 25, 2012 at 2:03 pm

        I agree with Christy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still miss OLTL a lot also!!!!!

      • Karen

        August 25, 2012 at 2:48 pm

        I tried watching GH a few times…very hard when you don’t know any of the storylines. I would only be able to watch GH on soapnet…and we all know that is ending soon.I’m happy that all the former OLTL viewers are getting something from GH now.

    • Didjanoit

      August 25, 2012 at 9:17 am

      As a GH fan before the merger, the only big news that would make me happy is also that OLTL is coming back! I miss GH. I lost my favorite show and AMC too. The problem is, that even though I watched OLTL in the past, I would never watch it again if it came back on the air. There’s been too much animosity created for me by the merger attempt, and yes, even by some fans demanding more and more OLTL on General Hospital.

    • MiCHELE

      August 26, 2012 at 1:36 pm

      I miss my oltl too,,,,Melissa Archer please….

  10. Janet Orlando

    August 24, 2012 at 10:01 pm

    I can’t wait. I wonder if it’s Robin.

  11. Gamblerchick

    August 24, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    I think it’s all of them, the past characters . Are being captive when I think about, it if Jerry has something to do with it. HE HAS TO BE WORKING, FOR SOMEONE ELSE FROM THE PAST. IF YOU REALLY THINK, WHO WOULD YOU THINK? FASION . He’s the number 1, all time villain of the whole town. Of who knows everyone’s weakness, their kids. And he’s the most obvious choice. LUKE: LUCKY. For instance. JERRY AND FASION: they both could have , ROBIN, ALAN, HOPE, LISA, JUSTICE, EMILY ZANDER, and DUKE. I WOULD LOVE LOVE LOVE, TO WATCH THEM ALL AGAIN EXPECT LISA.

    • maddiehayes

      August 25, 2012 at 7:51 am

      I hope they are thinking along these lines, this is what would get us lapsed viewers to come back, great villains, great characters, great adventures! And please, some ROMANCE!!!

  12. Scott

    August 24, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Lucy cole as played by lynn herring. If u look at mon preview in slow motion u get a small glimpse of the woman with anna looks like lucy.

    • Scott

      August 24, 2012 at 10:54 pm

      Sorry meant lucy coe lol

      • BOnnie

        August 25, 2012 at 6:48 am

        But did’t we see dark hair?? Maybe it is Anna’s twin sister

      • Lucky

        August 25, 2012 at 6:43 pm

        I hope it’s not Brenda from the old GH days. Her role always was recycled every time she re-appeared on the show. We know Robin’s alive, so it’s got to be someone else. Dark hair – maybe Gigi from OLTL! If so, Rex will find her-

  13. Rose

    August 24, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    I’m really looking forward to it.

  14. Rose

    August 24, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    I really hope it is Robin that Anna will find in that room.

        Ethel. that was funny. Keep moving….

  15. Holly

    August 25, 2012 at 12:41 am

    I don’t think whoever the mystery patient is is the surprise. I paused the preview and I could see that it kinda does look like Lucy, but I don’t think it’s her. I think maybe it’s Anna’s twin sister Alex.

    • susan M.

      August 25, 2012 at 2:06 pm

      Good possibilty !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Jim

    I’m sorry, but Frank is the master of overpromising and underdelivering. I’ve heard the hype before. Not buying it.

    since a small group of us has been watching GH, with a very different view then others, I’m not surprised about any surprise.

  18. Chantal

    August 25, 2012 at 5:16 am

    I don’t think it has anything to do with the mystery patient; but more we will find out who is Jerry working for…

    Please Please Please be Robin,come back Robin we all need you .

    August 25, 2012 at 6:44 am

    Personally, it almost doesn’t matter what or who it will be! The show has been fantastic since Frank and Ron took over!!! I love the fact that I can’t wait for the next episode every day! It’s like the old soap promos where you just had to “tune in tomorrow”!!! Love my GH! Started watching when I was 8 years old, that was 35 yrs ago…….and will watch for another 35 if given the chance!!!

  21. BOnnie

    August 25, 2012 at 6:49 am

    oh mayba Robin clones

  22. steve

    August 25, 2012 at 6:51 am

    I believe Anna finds Robin as TSJ is doing other Projects (not Victor Jr.) !

  23. Emily

    August 25, 2012 at 7:00 am

    I hope that it’s Emily! I really miss her! Plus they’ve been mentioning Nicholas a lot lately. Fingers crossed!

    August 25, 2012 at 7:02 am

    Thanks Michael for all you do for the soaps. Can’t wait till Monday’s episode. Friday’s left my husband and I on the edge of our seats. That’s the way soap opera’s were meant to be.

  25. Ces

    August 25, 2012 at 7:18 am

    I hope it’s someone worth waiting for! Someone is talking to Jerry.

  26. Caroldee

    August 25, 2012 at 7:27 am

    RUMORS fly you all will have to wait..48 hours of hell until we know ROBIN IS ALIVE.

  27. Alley

    August 25, 2012 at 7:38 am

    I’ll play. The woman locked in the room is Brenda. Or maybe, Heather contacts Allison Perkins (OLTL) and its revealed that Victor and Robin are being held by the same person. Or, Anna comes face to face with Duke, or Faison. Or, the mastermind behind the water poisoning is Helena Cassidine.

    I think that covers all the rumors I’ve heard. Which one will it be? Or will it be something else…

  28. maddiehayes

    August 25, 2012 at 7:50 am

    Okay, GH has got me interested again, guess I’m gonna have to watch on Monday, LOL, it better not be Greenlee (barf), although I wouldn’t mind if it’s Dr. David Hayward from AMC! Really hoping for Robert, Robin, or Natalie.

    • MBmomof3

      August 25, 2012 at 10:39 pm

  29. Rachel Cole

    August 25, 2012 at 7:55 am

    PLEASE don’t let it be any “back from the dead” types. If we SAW them die or dead onscreen……leave em that way.

    • Robbyrob

      August 26, 2012 at 4:14 pm

      Sorry Rachel,

      When JFP and Guza killed off such legacy and loved characters such as Alan Q, Emily Q, Zander, Georgie, Rick Webber…I stopped watching GH. I would love for this surprise to be any character that ‘perished’ at the hands of the previous regime. I would also love it to be Lucy Coe…I almost choked when Kate mentioned Lucy and Erick Kane to Todd the other day! If you want realism with your soaps, you should move on. I want to escape from reality. If that means buying into some characters that were killed off on-screen returning…I’m all for it! If Valentini is able to pull off such a surprise with the internet so present with spoilers…he’s really good and cares about wanting those old soap surprises back. I love it that he and Ron are on Twitter. None of the other soap bosses are.

      • Robbyrob

        August 26, 2012 at 4:15 pm

        Oops…I mean’t Erica Kane 🙂

  30. Debi

    August 25, 2012 at 8:36 am

    I am thinking Bobbie or Emily. Most likely Emily since Bobbie hasn’t ‘officially’ been named as missing.

  31. Sharon B.

    August 25, 2012 at 8:57 am

    Can’t wait to see, should be great! Hope it is revealing where Victor is and the Allison Perkins will be there also!! She is good at playing a psycho person.
    Love GH now more than ever. Great work by everyone involved behind the scenes and also the actors in the scenes. If you have not been watching GH now would be a very good time to start watching.

  32. Jared

    August 25, 2012 at 9:38 am

    I am really hoping that little Hope will turn up alive somewhere.

  33. Danny Bender

    August 25, 2012 at 10:23 am

    PLEASE keep putting Sam and McBain together. I haven’t seen this much chemistry between 2 people since Luke and Laura. They make love to each other with their eyes! Can’t wait to see these 2 together. Ever since you took over as executive producer the show is GREAT! The only problem is the best actors and charactors I love the most are rats and end up being written out. Heather and Jerry Jaks are the best actors.You love to hate them. Please figure out a way to keep Jerry on and bring Heather back! Noone plays a nut better then her. Keep up the good work, and don’t forget to get SAM and MCBAIN TOGETHER!!!!!!!!

    • MBmomof3

      August 25, 2012 at 1:47 pm

      Sorry, but I couldn’t DISAGREE more. Can’t stand John with Sam. Makes me dislike both characters immensely. Used to like McBain and was neutral on Sam. Their constantly being in each other’s orbit is annoying and OTT. Enough of these two please.


        August 26, 2012 at 3:55 am

        I AGRRE WITH YOU….




      • TS

        August 26, 2012 at 8:00 am

        Nope they belong together.. I can’t agree more with Danny! Have not seen a couple with chemistry on soaps in a very long time… . Both good actors and doing a great job… Lets just keep it on screen though.. if either of the actors are in relationships.. lol

      • susan M.

        August 26, 2012 at 12:03 pm

        I don’t care for John with Sam……..I still prefer Natalie !!!!!! Hopefully they will resolve their problems…………I still like John but, not with Sam…….

    • Christine

      August 25, 2012 at 9:23 pm

      I actually AGREE with you, Danny, and I remember the IMMENSE chemistry that Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco had on PORT CHARLES – this after she was someone else’s girl (Jack).

      However, I heard rumblings that people do not like them together – they want her with Jason. I can see both sides, but with Sam sharing a baby with Jason, they really should be together. I am just not sold that they are some great love story. It is disheartening when I heard about how much Steve Burton and Rebecca Herbst wanted to be together on the show but the producers then would have none of it and kind of forced Sam back into Jason’s arms. This was after Sam watched Elizabeth’s son get kidnapped in the park and not say anything. I mean they really made Sam unlikeable, but something happened and they shifted gears and put her back with Jason. Probably has something to do with the “focus groups” they always talk about.

      I agree so much on Jerry and Heather. Two amazing actors you truly love to hate. Sebastian Roche has been such a great Jerry recast compared to the original and Robin Mattson is just pure gold – a real scene stealer.

      • MBmomof3

        August 26, 2012 at 8:35 pm

        Love Jerry & Heather also. Love to hate them and they are so fun to watch. Loving Todd too.

    • TS

      August 26, 2012 at 10:42 pm

      Natalie is gone and she is not coming back… everyone needs to just get on the Sam and McBain wagon!! They will make beautiful children… and Tea can keep Sam and Jason’s baby for a 10 years. She is a good mother and there is not a lot of drama going on in her life right now. The child will be more functional vs disfuctional for hiis early life!! Jason is leaving the show anyway….

  34. Erick

    August 25, 2012 at 11:46 am

    Surprised that only one other person suspected it, but the first brunette I thought of (besides Robin) was Brenda. It would make sense for Jerry to go after her, messing with Sonny and Jax again. GH has been getting everyone back, I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard to twist Vanessa Marcil’s arm to come back for a couple of months. (And Anna, since she and Brenda never had scenes together, even though Robin & Brenda were BFFs, wouldn’t recognize her!)

    • Christine

      August 25, 2012 at 9:25 pm

      Brenda was some international model so I would think Anna would recognize Brenda if she saw her. I don’t think it is her though. I really believe the “surprise” is the person pulling Jerry’s strings.

    • Holly

      August 25, 2012 at 9:31 pm

      I never liked Brenda, so I didn’t want to admit it, but I think it might be her as well. Vanessa Marcil also tweeted a pic of herself soon after Valentini’s tweet that said “Got Brenda?”

      But isn’t the actor that plays him (name escapes me right now) on DAYS or B&B or something? I don’t think it is him.

      • Robbyrob

        August 26, 2012 at 4:21 pm


        Ian Buchanan was let go from Days months ago. Days tapes 3 months in advance so it sooooooooooo could be Duke! If that’s true, what a great surprise. For Anna, especially in her relationship with Luke. For Robin, when she is found alive! Imagine Sonny meeting Duke Lavery! I hate the mob stuff but I so would love it if Duke was brought back. His character was written much more to be just any old mobster….even though that’s what got him ‘killed’ off when Ian left the show. When Jonathan Paget came on as Duke with plastic surgery, he was good and I was loving his chemistry with Anna…they killed him off again. Paget can be explained to be a phony. No loss there.

  37. Liz

    August 25, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    I can’t wait until Monday! Thank you FV for making GH appointment tv once again. I don’t even want to guess what the surprise is, I am glad not to know & love being surprised.

    • gloria

    August 25, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    I read on the soap digest book cover in target today that the character of Bobbie Spencer , well she was fired from GH & that it was a big secret… Hmmm!!! I don’t know about that ??????????? If it is true or not…..Did you catch Gh on Fri. Before Jerry Jaxs came on the t.v. The chew was on for a second…Why would they put that crap on….

    • Christine

      August 25, 2012 at 9:28 pm

      susan M., its ABC. They will do whatever they can to force feed that stupid show down our throats even though we keep saying how much we detest it. I’m surprised they haven’t decided to do some kind of subliminal messages during GH to make us watch that drivel … but maybe they are doing that for Katie. Ha! Ha! Won’t work on me.

      • susan M.

        August 27, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    August 25, 2012 at 7:09 pm

    Helena & Cesar Faison. The person is directly connected to either Anna or Luke. All of your guesses are off.

      Very good guesses !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. Holly

    August 25, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    No one ever said that the surprise was an arrival. The surprise could be storyline based, like someone’s related to someone else, or someone dies, or something everyone thought to be true isn’t. I’m not convinced that the surprise is that someone is returning.

      GH is still on the air. Sheesh…some people cannot just be happy about that. Complain, complain, complain. If the shoe was on the foot, and GH was canceled, I would have loved to have some GH people on the other ABC soap…be it OLTL or AMC. If you have that many complaints, please move on. Your getting yourself all worked up and its tiring for fans like me who have stuck by GH through the great times (Wendy Riche) to the dismal times (JFP). With budgets the way the are and soaps in peril, Ron and Frank are doing great.

        I agree with your comments on 8/27 at 6:44a.m. I wish Anna would find Robin already…………At the clinic where Anna was today(Mon.) it wasn’t Robin she found..Then you see the woman that is in charge of the clinic talking to someone and it is Duke Lavery….What has he to do w/everything????

    Love that Elizabeth switched the sound off when The Chew came on! Also did you catch that the gift box Tracy gave Joe was from Wyndham’s, the department store that Luke and Laura got locked in years ago. And the mention of Skye! Great writing happening for smart viewers.

      Also loved that Jerry asked the citizens of Port Charles if they were wondering what happened to their soap opera when he cut into the Chew.

        I noticed the gift box was from Wyndams too. I loved that. Also loved Jerry asking if he was interrupting their soaps. Loving GH, even if I’m not drinking the McBam Kool-aid. I can live through that until John comes to his senses and Sam finds her own man. John is a rebound.

        Also loved Kate’s references to Lucy Coe, Erica Kane and Blair Cramer. Would love to see Lucy or Blair, Erica – not so much. sorry.

        The Chew just seeing it for that short time made me annoyed to see it on Gh of all places….That cooking show belongs under a rock & never to be found again….I don’t like cooking shows & I never ever watched those kind of programs…

    I almost choked…in a good way…when Kate mentioned both Lucy Coe and Erica Kane to Todd the other day. Love the past being respected.

    Looks like Cloe… i hear she is coming back to Days.. why not have her show up on General Hospital for a couple of months til she is on air on Jan 4th in NBC. ABC sure could do that for NBC… That def would be a shocker!! 🙂

    I live in the West .. I may have to google and find out early who shows up in that Hospital room tomorrow..

    Thanks Frank (and Michael!) for working us up into a frenzy! We’ve got ABC on at work, so I’m going to have to saunter out to the other room and see if I can see what the surprise is cuz I can’t wait til I get home tonight! ha!

    hey on the abc general hospital website – look at the sneak peek photos for this week! Check out page 2 – it says ‘Ewen is unraveling faster than ever….’ Apparently the unraveling is starting on his trousers! someone really ought to hem them up! They’re all bunched up at the ankle like an old pair of leg warmers from the 80’s! bwahahahaha

    the last page of the sneak peek hints to our big surprise today… ‘One more HUGE thing – a game changer. Like, one for the books. ‘ so like what would be a game changer? hmmmm only thing that would be huge, is like the last 49 years has been the dreams of a coma patient in GH. bwahahahaha

    I hope the big surprise is that ABC has woke up a smelled the coffee and firing FV and RC. They have done nothing but tore GH to shreds. They came into a good soap(their was canceled because it sucked,nothing more, nothing less)and have completely did away with GH.The storylines makes no sense, and they totally believe in rape and body snatching. Its time to get writers who will write for GH and GH only, since its GH they are taking over.Also they came in and made hugh mistakes, and one is split a number one couple up, bring in other people from other shows(which they could have brought in people that was on GH).I just have one thing to say bring back Steve Burton and fire FV and RC, that have not one clue what GH is about!

      well said and I totally agree with you. Anyone that thinks they are doing a great job, can’t possibly be a fan from the day GH was put on air. And just remember I said it 1st GH will follow in the foot steps of AMC and OLTL unfortunately. Read between the lines, they didn’t change the time for nothing. GH up against Days and I just started watching Days since I can not stomach ABC anymore. RIP GH!

      Well said Solonge….hearing FV and RC were fired would be the only thing that would surprise me too! They have destroyed the show I watched since 1970, in less than 8 months. Although I actually knew that they would from the start, because they want OLTL back on the air. Stunt casting and corny, campy stories and directing are not General Hospital, those are OLTL’s forte’. IMO

    God bless you Ron and Frank! You have rejuvenated my General Hospital. I have one request – actually two. DO NOT LET STEVE BURTON LEAVE!!!!!!! Fans will NOT BE HAPPY IF WE LOSE HIM. He has our hearts as much as Bob Woods has our hearts on One Life. And speaking of One Life to Live, the other request goes with a thank you…… Thank you so much for keeping my One Life to Live alive on General Hospital. My request is that you guys don’t give up. We haven’t given up the fight for One Life to Live and All My Children. We fully intend to make life miserable for the rats from Disney until they release the rights to our beloved shows and let us find them a new home. Again, thanks for all you do!

    I was hoping it was going to be Evangeline Williamson but my 1st guess was Duke but how is that a big surprise FV? Really, who cares you and RC are destroying a legendary soap.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.
