On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman sat down with two of General Hospital’s most popular stars, Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) and Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) for this video interview at the ABC Summer Press Tour event (premiering the fall season) for the Television Critics Association (TCA) just a few days ago.

During the conversation, Kirsten and Patrick discussed the topic that is one of the most forefront on GH fans minds … what is going to happen when Maxie has her baby and all the deceit surrounding it? And, what is going to happen when Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) has her baby, that is supposedly Patrick’s?  Here now are some excerpts from what the stars had to say about all the drama, followed by the video!

KIRSTEN:  “I think in my storyline, I don’t think there is one resolution that everybody is going to be happy with. The fans are pretty divided on what they want the outcome to be.  I think no matter what … things are not going to go well for Maxie.  She has lied to just about everybody in her life, and in the situation. Obviously, things are going to have to start coming out because a few people know the truth, and I don’t think they are going to be able to keep that in for very long.  But that is kind of what we do this for … the big explosion of the storyline, and just to see the fallout of everything. I am ready for it to happen though.”

JASON:  “I am ready for the next part of this story, for sure. I honestly don’t know how this all plays out. We are back to work not this week, but the week after, and so I think it will start to shift going into the next couple of weeks.  So, I am kind of excited to read how this all plays out. There are a lot of questions that Patrick has right now about the situation that he is in. There was a scare on the health of the baby, and so I think he is really trying to zero in on that, and to make sure that this child is born healthy. I am sure once we find out that is the case, or maybe even before, there will be some fallout. Whether everybody’s happy about it, I don’t know, but I am probably sure most people in my situation would probably be happy that the baby is not his. I personally, hope it’s mine… I just want another kid!  It would be fun, why not? (Laughs)”

Now watch the video interview below, and also find out what Kirsten and Jason had to say, when Michael asked what if the GH powers-that-be where to ever think of pairing Maxie and Patrick together romantically?  Then, let us know how you hope the baby dramas unfolds!

Maxie and Patrick would have been fun! It would have added to the drama if/when Robin comes back.

No way! Maxie and Patrick would be a shipwreck and an awful couple..

I keep thinking Maxi(with Spinnelis baby) and Britt(with Dante and Lulus baby) will go into labor the same day and someone, maybe Brad will switch them. That way when Maxi decides to keep the baby and insists its hers…but dna test will now show its Dantes and Lulus because of the switch and Britt will pass off Maxis/Spinnelis baby as Patricks.

Sounds logical, but I’m thinking there has to be another twist we don’t see coming here…exactly from where and whom Britt’s spawn originated is still anybody’s guess!!! Particularly with Dr. Strange O.’s fine hand in this mix!!!!!

Theres gotta be some kinda twist…i hope…it would make the story more interesting and exciting.

I have thought about the switch too and thought that would happen. However Dr O is involved and it’s very possible that Maxie’s baby is really not Spinelli’s and Brit’s baby is not who we think it is. There wil probably be a switch or a stealing of a baby to murk things up even more. I would love to see Maxie’s baby be Spinelli’s and wish that they could be a couple too! As for Patrick and Maxie… hmmm… no!

Patrick and Maxi wouldve made the story more interesting had they been paired instead of bringing on Sabrina. In wouldve been more suspenseful if Robin returned to find Patrick about to marry her good friend Maxi instead of Sabrina who she does not know. It wouldve made better drama.

that’s pretty good… JimH.

even with Maxie and Britt knowing she “lost” the baby… miscarried…

if she admits it’s hers…. the baby switch… and the dna results… will prove her wrong..

Maxie will come off as batty…. even if she does want the baby as her own.

this will give Britt more time… to?

Hey jimh… I wouldn’t say good friend… Maxie and Robin are family. They are a very unusual family situation but I believe we can say they are cousins and they were raised like sisters by Mac for many years. Family and holiday get togethers are with Robin and Maxie. I just got a chance to see the interview and I agree with Kirsten… they are related and it would be incestuous. Your ideas are great though and give us things to think about!

Thanks for the reply Heidi…are Maxi and Patrick related you say(is that why you said incestuous)…cause i didnt think they were related.

heidi

You are right… Jim! Patrick and Maxie are only related by marriage. Incestuous was the wrong word to use. It just would seem inappropriate to me and I Iike that they are family and are there for love and support… and they both are going to need a lot of that when these baby story lines break!

I won’t have liked Maxie & Patrick paired together…. I like Maxie with Spinelli…

I hope the baby Maxie is carrying is Spinelli’s and they get together. They are so good together because they work off each other. It is just a treat to watch them. Spinelli will be hurt because Maxie has withheld the fact that he is the father which causes them problems but they work it out. I hate to disappoint Patrick but I hope the baby Brit is carrying is LuLu and Dante’s. Maybe Brit will finally decide she doesn’t want to mess her relationship with Nicholas up so she comes up with a story that she knew about Maxie… Read more »

I don’t know about Maxie and Patrick. But Kristen and Jason seem like two people you would be happy to be friends with..Maxie use to be a ditz,so pairing her with a brain surgeon I don’t know. She loved Robin and she does love Emma so I guess it could work. They have had a lot worse couples on this show Sonny and anyone comes to mind. .We know the baby isn’t Patrick’s s its moot. Maxie’s is her own so I guess we have to wait and see what tiic of the show do. With them .It could be… Read more »

Speaking of paternity themes, does anyone else question whether Silas is Kiki’s real father??? There just seems to be something oddly suspicious about that whole scenario…Ava was so hell-bent and determined to hide the “truth” about her daughter and yet Julian was completely blase’ about revealing it. If DNA proves a match, there could still be the possibility that “Stephen Clay” is the daddy, and if not, dare I proffer the notion that it could also be Julian???? That whole relationship between Ava and her “brother” is strange…they simply don’t appear familial in the sibling sort-of-way, and also she has… Read more »

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!
