Hot on the heels of the new of the dismissal of Rebecca Herbst as Elizabeth Webber on General Hospital, comes official word today out of ABC Soaps In Depth that actress, Erin Chambers who plays Siobhan has been put on contract by the series.

The actress tweeted last week that “I’ve been dying to tell everyone and today it is official. I was offered a contract on General Hospital and I couldn’t be more excited!!!” 

So does this mean it’s going to be a definite Siobhan/Lucky pairing in the offing?

GH fires Rebecca Herbst because they say her character has no storyline, and then announce that Erin has been put on contract. The character of Elizabeth has so much more connection and story possibilities (Jason and Elizabeth, Lucky and Elizabeth, Nikolas and Elizabeth, The Webbers) then Siobhan. Maybe if GH stop bring on new character that nobody cares about and focused more on the character they have Elizabeth could have a storyline. I honestly don’t care for the character of Siobhan and am so angry at the powers that be over at GH for firing Rebecca. As a long time… Read more »

I’m SO tired of Siobhan already! And they’re getting rid of Elizabeth Webber? She has 3 children, and 2 boys’ fathers very much around. (And one who thinks he IS a father)

This is ridiculous. I’m tired of Lucky running after Siobhan, send her home on the next boat to Dublin.
Jonathan Jackson is my favorite, dear boy. I always hoped Lucky and Elizabeth might find their way back. At the very least, he’s ‘daddy’ to two of the boys. He can’t lose them. It will break his heart.

While it is sad that Becky Herbst has lost her job, I’m a one viewer who will take Siobhan McKenna over Liz Webber any day of the week. I am a huge fan of Jonathan Jackson, on General Hospital and beyond the show, and the chemistry he has with Erin Chambers is phenomenal. TPTB struck paydirt when they put those two together and I’m not surprised that Erin was given contract. She’s talented. She’s beautiful and she has the soulful gravitas to go toe to toe with one of the best actors in the soap industry. Those two sizzle and… Read more »

Thanks for the comments, but it’s obvious you’re on staff! (And if not, you should get a PR job for GH!) LOL

BH leaving bites! Much GOOD story potential gone. But given the financial crisis, I suppose GH going for the low brow stuff is what they have to do. 🙁

Nope. I’m not on staff. I’m simply a fan who has never been wowed by the character Liz Webber. She’s boring, two-dimensional and, did I mention mindnumbingly boring??? I don’t feel that Liz has contributed very much to the canvas in the last six years and, as Becky’s maternity leave demonstrated, her absence won’t be that big of a loss…not to me anyway.

Hopefully we will get rid of the fake accent and the story to come out so that we can maybe like her a bit more. I like her actually, just dont like the accent and I think once the whole Liz being gone and the story of her helping the balkin because they have her sister comes out, it will be ok.

I was interested to see what GH would do with Siobhan but not at the expense of Elizabeth. As pissed off as I’ve been at Elizabeith I never once wished her off the show.

I am as mad as I have ever been! Why did “GH” dump a long time character like Elizabeth for a short term one like SIobhan? Elizabeth is much better than Siobhan, I don’t see the point there.

Liz wasn’t “dumped” for Siobhan. Liz was “dumped” because the writers had nowhere to go with her. If they had, Siobhan would have never been conceived as a character in the first place.

I’d just like to reiterate…congratulations, Erin, and welcome to General Hospital!

Kristina Wagner Shares She’s Back On Contract at General Hospital

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

So what storyline do you think Felicia will get thrown into? Will she return to Port Charles to help Maxie (Kirsten Storms)?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
