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!

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
