GH’s Kelly Thiebaud Talks On Britt & Jason’s Potential Future, the Medical Diagnosis that Could Alter Britt’s life, and Working Alongside Her Co-Stars

Photo: Matt Kallish

Coming up on General Hospital, it’s a major week ahead in the life of Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud).  She is currently on the run with mob hit man Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) while trying to stay away from the evil Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), and about to find out if she has the marker for Huntington’s Disease, which she knows is in her family genetics because of her father, Cesar Faison (Anders Hove).

All of this is being played to the hilt by Kelly Thiebaud, who this year made another triumphant return to the ABC daytime drama series, when Britt was released from prison and all of a sudden was placed by Renault to be the Chief of Staff at General Hospital!

GH viewers who over the years have fondly dubbed Britt, the nickname of the “The Britch” (for some of the horrible misdeeds she has done and perpetrated on some of the good citizens of Port Charles) are now finding that in Britt’s on-screen story with Jason, that it has allowed the character to reveal more shades and depth, especially now that she is facing a horrific medical diagnosis that could change her life forever, and that she has developed romantic feelings toward Jason.

 

Kelly sat-down virtually for an all-new conversation with Michael Fairman exclusively for You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, where she weighed-in on: Britt’s latest dilemmas, budding romance, medical crisis, and what she thinks Britt might do if Jason and Sam (Kelly Monaco) were ultimately reunited.

During this interview, Kelly talks about working with more of her GH castmates including: Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Laura Wright (Carly), Finola Hughes (Anna), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Wes Ramsey (Peter) and of course, Parry Shen (Brad).  Who didn’t love when bestie’s Brad and Britt would watch on the television the Nurses’ Ball red carpet while eating ice cream and trashing the arrivals?

Watch the full interview with Kelly below.

Then let us know, are you hoping the Britt and Jason hit the sheets? What do you think will ultimately be Britt’s medical diagnosis? Will she have Huntington’s Disease or something else? Will she manipulate Jason away from Sam, or be on the up and up? Are you enjoying Kelly’s portrayal of Britt? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Her latest stint has been nothing short of pure enjoyment. I am loving the new dimensions Dan O’Conor and Chris Van Etten have given to Britt Westbourne. Not to mention, as much as I am not a fan of Steve Burton’s Jason, I am completely here for a Britt and Jason pairing!

THIS : ^^^^ beautifully stated

“… Not to mention, as much as I am not a fan of Steve Burton’s Jason, I am completely here for a Britt and Jason pairing! ”

i am gobsmacked… that Steve Burton ” WHOLE ” demeanor… has changed… it’s like i am mystified at his persona… what words will flow… aside from the physical want…. his first kiss . BRITTA is MY leading lady… now that tamara Braun is gone. this is beguiling enchanting… every thing @GH NEEDS.

magic ensue

I love my Britta !!!!

Oh definitely, these two go together. There were sparks from the very beginning. I just hope they don’t kill her off from the H.Desease. I don’t think she has to manipulate him away from Sam who has done that on her own.

Yeah,I understand Sam’s choice, but how long has she known Jason and if they put her with Dante, that won’t be any better, because he is a by the book guy and wouldn’t stand for her occasional walk on the dark side.

I just don’t want to go through anymore diseases for a long time on GH or anywhere else. Need my afternoon drop-out-of-real-life stories right now. Sadly too much of the other in real life right now. I’m glad the writers didn’t take us through a long drawn story on Sean Donnelly’s final condition but instead gave was an entertaining, memory tribute to him with his real daughter acting her part.

In Hollywood, they never bad mouth any of their coworkers because they “Love” everyone and everyone is “Amazing!” She seems to be really happy with everyone she works with. Maybe everyone on GH is amazing? Its daytime, that community and country music performers seem to be the most down to earth people. I like her. I liked her and Brad being friends. I liked her and Julian together. But, her and Jason, it could be gold! He and Sam needed to be split up. They are like zombies when the two of them are in scenes together.

So funny if they interviewed someone that said, ” oh, I can’t believe I have to work with that ass” or something of that nature. I love Britt and Jason together, but Dante and Sam are like two small book-ends, with certainly no chemistry.

Timmm
Guest

Dante is a scene killer! When he was with Lulu, the two of them were atrocious! He and Sam have no chemistry. Its Dante, he is the problem. He is a good actor and probably a good man BUT he just cannot find his groove. Maybe he goes dark and works for his dad?

Steve
Guest

The writers haven’t known what to do with Dante for years. DZ is a good actor, but they keep giving him little to work with. Dante and Lulu needed to be broken up for a while. Sam, however, is not the answer.

There was so much potential when he returned last August. Now that he’s back on the PCPD, he just fades into the background again.

You are right. He was more interesting when he only acted to the click of a pen.

LOVING, LOVING, LOVING every minute of Kelly’s return. What a much-needed shot of adrenaline that GH needs right now. I was getting so bored with Petie Puke’s constant triumphs over EVERYONE and the D.O.A. romance with mumbly Sam and dumber Dante. Britt and Jason are terrific together and I also find myself smiling every time Kelly is on. Now if they can bring back her pal, a redeemed Brad, my joy will be complete.

Why would the GH writers give Britt the marker for Huntington’s Disease, especially now that we finally have a new love interest for Jason instead of boring Sam?

gh#1
Guest

Because Jason can’t resist a girl in trouble. Give the girl a stalker (Courtney) or a baby by a mob daddy who didn’t want the mommy (Sam), or in this case a dreadful disease and he’s all in. Otherwise he might remember that Britt stole his bosses grandchild (Dante and Lulu’s embryo) along with all the other lies she’s told and keep his distance.

lol. Considering he still got with Sam when she hated his son and did all that crap not telling them where he was etc. (god she was awful that year), apparently, Jason’s standards are low on the moral side.

I LOVE BRITT! Ms. Thiebaud is doing a remarkable job with her, as are the writers. I hope she and Jason become a couple simply because they light up the screen together. I don’t see that with Jason and Sam. Sorry.

I’d love to see some more airtime between Britt and Brad when she gets back to PC.

My apologies to Miss Thiebaud, but I will never see Britt as a partner for Jason. I can hardly bear her constant mooning at him when he turns his back. The writers may have softened her since she discovered she had brothers and became friends with Maxie, but this does not erase the lies she has told nor the fact that she stole Lulu (Spinelli’s once beloved Blonde One) and Dante’s (son of Jason’s boss) embryo and passed their son off as her own while in a relationship with Lulu’s brother. Did Jason lose his memory again when he had… Read more »

Jason lost his memory re: Sam and all the crap she did immorally including hating his son and wanting him gone (she was never gonna tell the truth and watched while someone kidnapped him. she was horrible that year), so does he really care? He has forgiven the unforgivable several times before. Jason usually just takes whoever will have him. Jason started out smiling with Robin a lot. Life happened and he hardened and then he did soften with Liz. The Sam years he looked constipated most of the time and seem more annoyed. Honestly, for me, after what Sam… Read more »

After waiting with bated breath, we finally have Britt back, it would be a “shot to the heart” to have her exit ( and in such a painful way). Finally, she has been given a storyline with punch!! Please, let this last—-TPTB can work their magic and find a cure—better yet, get a second opinion where Britt is told she has been misdiagnosed. What a head-spinning change, for once. Britt and Jason—no more Sam. …..seems to me Jason’s persona has somewhat transformed since his association with Britt. He doesn’t appear to be so brooding. Considering he’s on the run, he… Read more »

hi Celia 🙂
ohh sheesh- please not have us watch Britt dying for the next year, sigh..
But- as usual, it will be a mixed-up mess of a misdiagnosed <– that soap writing rule 103 lol
I like Jason and Britt..
Sam and Jason are beyond played out.
That couple should have ended over a decade ago.
I can imagine Jason and Britt as an exciting couple, especially with mother Dr.O and in the mix..

And to the powers that be;
a horrible nightmare if Sam and Dante were to be paired=
a huge throw-up mistake if so.

Celia

Hey, SusieQ—-LOL. Sam and Dante…Hmmmm, you know that’s where this is headed. Two Italian actors locking heads—-should be something to see—except, Sam still gets on my nerves. Always has, always will—“new” face and all. And, yeah—-big mistake if these two get together. —-didn’t Sonny and Sam have an affair? Oh, yeah—Alexis and Sonny? And, the stomach heaves. EWWWW!!
I do hope Brill and Jason are here to stay—Huntington’s is a seriously virulent disease. So, TPTB must remefy this situation. Posthaste!!

hi Celia– When it comes to Sam it’s a huge ish! hard to tolerate her.
I can see Jason and Britt having a long time-
But there will be nasty shenanigans from mama O ..
I found this;
Currently, there isn’t a treatment that can slow or stop the progression of Huntington’s disease.
About 30,000 people in the United States have Huntington’s disease (that’s extremely low)
and another 200,000 are at risk of developing the condition.
Symptoms commonly develop between ages 30 and 50.
The disease progresses slowly and a person may live for another 15-20 years after the onset of symptoms.

Celia
Guest

Agreed, SusieQ—- As far as I’m concerned ( which means nothing), Sam is one of the most boring, overly-exposed, superfluous characters on GH. What exactly does she do? Rien, nada, niente, nicht. Now, the mighty PTB are re-propping and pre-propping her via Dante? Or is it vice versa?? Another mismatched pair. Anyway—Huntington’s is a death sentence ( according to medical professionals), albeit research on the disease is ongoing as we speak to isolate the gene in families passed down from generation to generation. It attacks the nerve cells in the brain, slowly but surely. Nonetheless, I am a positive person…..… Read more »

Celia, Su000, you’re all on target. Sam is never more laughable to me than when she “plays tough” with Dante, the WORST cop in the history of soaps. Britt has more life and fun in a sadly trembling hand than Sam has in her whole being.

GH has been having trouble with couplings for a long while, trying to force characters together who have NO chemistry (Anna and Finn being the worst). I am as surprised as anyone that Britt & Jason work, but they certainly do!

But PLEASE stop with Anna & Finn, Dante & Sam, Nina & “Mike”, and Michael & Willow. They are painful to watch together and they all deserve better pairings!

Remy
Guest
Remy

The Anna and Finn pairing will never work as the missing element is Hayden.

The Dante and Sam pairing is like oil and water. The missing elements here are John McBain and Julie’s portrayal Lulu.

Willow + Michael= Snoozefest

Adore Cynthia Watros as an actress but the difference between her and Michelle Stafford’s portrayal is that Michelle had chemistry with nearly every screen partner on the canvas, whic

The Jax and Nina pairing worked well with Michelle, not Cynthia.

This Mike and Nina pairing looked like a modern version of Jennifer Bransford short term run as Carly, great actress just wrong timing

Lew S

Oh, Remy—-I have been saying this since forever, but it serves no purpose. Michelle Stafford is outstanding in every role she assumes.
Yet, I could never picture her with Sonny—Actually, this thing ( whatever it is) between Nina and Sonny ( Mike) has gone way over the borderline. Pardon the pun.
Anna and Finn—as lame as can be. Finn and Elizabeth? We shall see.
Try as they might, Michael and Willow are blowing in the wind—-trying so hard to generate a spart—it ain’t there!!

Always enjoyed Kelly Thiebaud’s portrayal of Britt. She has made this character memorable, which is hard to accomplish in these modern times.

Ms. Thiebaud has taken a character that could’ve had a short life span and gave it leg. Along the way, Britt has developed historic connections to the canvas past and present.

Her latest stunt has been nothing but phenomenal with Britt continously delivering quiet surprises.

This is one character GH has developed carefully, with Britt becoming a strong contender of being a future legacy character for GH.

I wonder how Carly will take this new development. She sees Jason as her property, and most likely will throw a fit if she thinks their relationship is serious. I loved how Cyrus told me her off, she loves her new position as the mob’s boss lady. Speaking of Cyrus, Portia could really have the upper hand, the one that holds the injection needle, unless he has someone watching her, she could give him something lethal, oops!

Sorry JaSam forever!! I find them very boring. I know the saying copying is the best form of a compliment but in this case I find it confusing and a bit ridiculous. Besides JaSam didnt break up from not loving each other. So this pairing makes no sense. Not to mention how rushed it was. Dont get me started on Dante and Sam. That one is even worse. Sam and Jason are a team they would have worked great together. Sam and Jason should have handled Peter they were the ones affected not Britt. Of course that didnt happen.

I hate Jasam, but is Jason supposed to pine away from the person he thought wouldn’t leave him and basically lied about what she was willing to deal with after she almost got him killed and endangered her family re: Shiloh? Jason usually can turn off his feelings pretty well. He loves to rescue. I can’t stand Britt, but Jason and Britt have been around each other and bonding since last year. I don’t think it was rushed necessarily, just would have never thought he’d be interested in Britt. It was awkward, but you know what, at least he’s finally… Read more »

I was starting to be a fan of Britt until they did the pairing with Steve Burton. These two were better off friends. It’s sad that actors actresses can demand pairings to come to the show. Bringing Steve back only to destroy JaSam was ridiculous. Strictly Steve jealous of Billy’s portrayal and depth of the character he was simply jealous. KM and BM rocked it even when they deened BM as Drew. Steve couldnt handle the competition because Billy is an extremely talented actor. Sadly GH pushed BM to the back burner for what this mess with Kelly T. Yes… Read more »

Loved Brit and Jason’s meeting today but Carly looked like she swallowed a lemon. She also didn’t take too kindly to Jason’s reluctance in telling her everything that was going on mob-wise. I really don’t see her turning the reins back over to Sonny willingly when he returns. She loves the excitement and power too much.

You can bet your soul that Sonny will soon be returning to Port Charles – though most likely he’ll be doing so without his memory, searching for Nina, with no unholy idea what awaits him when he arrives. How do I know this is coming soon? Because within the last few weeks, we saw Whiny Heiny finally dispatched to Hell, Cyrus the Virus getting shipped off to a Federal “supermax” prison as of today, and his parting words to Finn FINALLY clued him into what was wrong with his “miracle cure” for Chase (the next batch, prepared with the proper… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
