GH’s Kirsten Storms, Michelle Stafford & Dominic Zamprogna Respond To Fans Heartfelt Kudos On Their Performances Following Nathan’s Death!

Courtesy/ABC

If you caught Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed another tearjerker as Nathan’s loved ones were sent reeling from his sudden death, thus ending the run of Ryan Paevey.

In emotionally riveting scenes, Kirsten Storms delivered one of the best performances of her career as the grieving wife with all the “Maxi-isms” and more that make us love Storms portrayal and care so deeply for the character of Maxie. Kirsten thanked her fans on Twitter for their support and for the accolades on her performance.

Storms related: THANK YOU so much for all the Twitter love @GeneralHospital fans! This is a sad (& amazingly written) story we are telling. I feel blessed to have been given the challenge to portray it. I appreciate all of your kind words on my work  You guys are why we do it! Xoxo

In another heartbreaking performance, Michelle Stafford reminded all of us of that unbreakable bond between siblings, and in this case a brother and a sister with her gut-wrenching work as the grieving sister.  Viewers were extremely moved by Stafford’s work, and she responded.

Michelle Stafford shared: Your love is overwhelming!! Thank you! When I hear things like “I had to call my brother and tell him I loved him after watching that” I am reminded of why I do this. I really love you guys #GH

Then, there was the heart-wrenching work of Dominic Zamprogna who as Dante lost his buddy, his brother, if you will, and who is rocked to the core by Nathan’s passing.  Dominic also sent love to the fans for their outpouring of support for his performances.

Zamprogna expressed: Want to thank u all for the love these past 2 days. Great to dig in, sorry it meant the end of Nathan and working w/ my pal @RyanPaevey.

What did you think of the performances by all-involved on yesterday’s GH, were Nathan’s loved ones tried to cope from the shock of his passing? Comment below.

Thank all of you, Maxie, Nina and Dom, for your reply. Yesterday I held it together quite well, but after reading your comments, the tears showed up. I can’t imagine how hard it was to wring those emotions out of yourselves. The show comes on in half an hour here, and I hope my hubby isn’t in the room, cause i might just bawl again. All of you are fantastic actors and actresses. We love you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

So what’s next? Kevin/Ryan twin swap? Is that’s why Laura was written off? Dr. Bench teaming up with Heinrik?

Who’s holding Nathan and Faison?

HINT : her first name is Lisel

NoraE
Guest

You beat me to it! Now who is Peter’s mama? Or better yet, who is Anna’s child with Faison? Think it’s Little Nelle, or maybe Kim, or heaven forbid, the radical priest. Nelle is pretty diabolical and Kim is pretty good at being covert and she and Oscar have dark hair like Anna . It can’t be Peter, because Faison knew about Peter and his horrible mother, this according to Leisel, but he was cruel and ignored him. Most of his life. Anna said ‘their child’ was a secret. She didn’t say son. Give us your best guess. I’m betting… Read more »

Should have said, Peter couldn’t be Anna’s son, if Peter and Heinrik are one and the same”.

Good writers earn their paychecks, don’t they? I think I’m better at imitating Carly and Jordan’s noisy stomp and drag walks than crystal ball gazing plot llines.

Storms and Zamprogna knocked it out of the park. Stafford was good in her subdued scenes, but a little too much while yelling outside of Faison’s room.

Kristina Wagner said so much with her facial expressions. The Scorpio family hug was touching.

The Dante/Liesl scene was really poignant. Didn’t notice anyone offering her any comfort.

Nina’s “release” made me wish that Valentin would have tossed her off the roof of GH and been done with her already! You just know this character will be milking this tragedy for as long as she possibly can…anything to have a chance to over-emote and steal the limelight!

Absolutely Patrick and Soaphound…all were magnificent; Michelle completely floored me (no pun intended) when Nina collapsed outside Faison’s room. Michelle as Nina has struck the perfect chord…the epitome of grief…the containment of shock/disbelief, inward pain and then bam! The crushing devastation that comes to the surface.

If anyone doubted this character’s sanity…losing her brother should prove just how far she’s come. Amazing portrayal of loss.

Outstanding performances by everyone. You could just feel Maxie’s pain. She is all alone and pregnant. It is a lesson to always tell the ones you love that you love them because you never know. Now, when will Dominic get a good story? The man always delivers. Tired of Lulu getting all the attention.

They truly were gut wrenching performances by all; even right down to the last shot of the day when Mac hugged Maxie and a tear rolled down his cheek.

All of the actors were great. I could feel the pain of Kristen & Michelle. But Dominic’s performance left me speechless. He lost his friend, work partner and it did seem like they were brothers. They all need to be nominated for their performances. This episode needs to be one of the ones submitted as a reel for next years Emmys. Ryan will be missed. GH delivered something special. This is what soaps are all about. Great acting and writing. Keep up the great work.

Kirsten’s performance–simply amazing. She hit all the high and low notes just right and true.

Watching the two shows of Nathan’ death, I wondered again why daytime drama has declined. Sure the storylines are over-the-top and cliched,, but the acting is superb. And the stories are about relationships, so essential, and life choices. This is especially hard to swallow when you see the cheap TV, cheap not just in production costs, that replaced so many soaps.

Bravo to all the actors who excelled in these episodes.

Both the acting and the writing were beyond brilliant. It still chokes me up when I see the pictures on instagram. And don’t forget Kathleen Gati who was heart wrenching also.

I am curious to see the interaction between Lulu and Maxie. I totally agree with Leisl that Lulu is the one who set the whole thing in motion and for selfish reasons to boot.

Every single actor in Nathan’s story gave incredible performances. I won’t single anyone out as each deserves her and his own accolades. But the actor whose character I’ve never liked (and likely wasn’t supposed to), Kathleen Gati, gave such a heartbreaking performance that it was the first time that Liesl Obrecht seemed human to me. I think where the show went a little sideways was not allowing the characters of Nina and Liesl to say their goodbyes to Nathan in his hospital room after Maxie left. But I’m guessing the actors will be given that opportunity during the funeral. Michael,… Read more »

Hi Sandy J.

I thought of that, too. Wondered why they didn’t have Dr. O and Nina go in to say goodbye…ugh. so completely sad. It really was so well done and too heartbreaking. So real…shedding tears as if Nathan were real. Have to shake off the loss.

Michelle Stafford‏/ Nina …BRAVA!

Kathleen Gati/Liesl …BRAVA!

Anders Hove/Cesar Faison …BRAVO!

Those 3 .. they were outstanding. None better than those 3.
The others were good but not great in comparison to 3 above.

I never want Anders/Faison to leave. He is spellbinding!

Nathans death was done well ((I was staring at his closed eyes waiting for movement, there was none/ hard to do)

Lulu, if I were writing, would be put her on death row..
I hope she greatly suffers.. but the writers won’t go there, sigh.

Now, I’m looking forward to Andrew and Heinrick ..

Lulu had the best of intentions whether being ambitious or not. Let us not forget Peter The one who pushed her to go big with the story becuae had his own agenda and a nefarious one at that.

Lulu is going to suffer unfortunately. She’ll live with that guilt probably the rest of her life…who knows how long it’ll take Maxi to forgive her, if at all, Dante, though loving and supportive warned her not to do the story… I think she was wrong to pursue it too. She knew how dangerous he was, she knew his history. Anna and Robert had been after him for years; he tortured and killed many. Yet she pushed to do the story as a “follow-up” piece because covering a cat show (I would have LOVED to cover a cat show! ;))… Read more »

Rebeeca, can you believe that I agree with your every word here. My GH world is turning upside down. Right now I cannot stand Lulu but kind of like Nina. I recall the first thing Lulu thought of upon hearing that Faison was Nathan’s father, was how to use this as a ground breaking news story which would propel her spanking new journalism career. Nary a thought of how this would impact her best friend and her family, she had self-serving stars flickering in her eyes. And Maxie called her on it right then and there. You can tell by… Read more »

I just got off the floor, Harry. I’m afraid I fainted when you said you agreed with EVERY WORD I SAID! LOL..hahahaha… I love Nina. Always have been a staunch supporter of hers…from her nervous breakdown days (she played cray-cray so well!) through her evolution to the sophisticated, fiercely loyal, loving wife, sister, step-mom she’s become. I thought all of her scenes through Nathan’s death were stupendous. Subdued to uncontrolled devastation. I do commend you, though on your ability to look beyond your first (okay 1000th) impression of Nina to admit you like her, you really, really like her. (okay,… Read more »

But she was good, I just have to hand it to her.

This was another day to get choked up. Dominic as Dante had me so close to tears with what he was saying to Nathan’s lifeless body. This was another episode that has much of the cast with some excellent material for an Emmy reel if the performances today are eligible. i know they wouldn’t be for this year but hopefully what these actors have done over the last 2 days will be. There was a ton of energy that came from everyone in this storyline.

The last few days on GH is what soap fans live for…real genuine connection and emotion surrounding the Nathan story, and superb acting my all that made it happen. Where do you start…of course Maxie…never seen her better. And then Nina and Liesl were incredibly heartfelt. Even Dante stepped up with a more subtle, effective performance than we are used to seeing from him. And Anna throughout, especially the scenes with Anna and Faison. As well as Heinrich’s final words to Faison. Wow! As for Lulu, I still don’t think she gets it. I can always do without Sonny being… Read more »

Refreshing and humble response by Zamprogna–he seems like a real standup fellow–not infected with a giant ego–just a hardworking actor. Bravo for THAT!

Harry
Guest

Thank you, Nancy. I actually found Dante’s reaction to be the saddest one. Humility and subtlety go a long way for me.
I think he’s another under utilized resource.
Seems they employ the same idea with Dante that they do with Kevin. The idea that one character cannot have their own story when their spouse has their own. Laura had to be shipped out so Kevin could have his story and right now, Lulu is the one having a big story as the investigative journalist from Munchkin City.

nancy dillingham
Guest

i also want to respond to the really ugly rumors about what TPTB are attempting or planning to do to Kevin’s character. Instead of sending him off to join Laura, rumor is that he may have the brain/memories of his unbalanced brother Ryan–another “swap” prior to Jason and his twin.
Ugly! Ugly, if true. Seems like yet another mean-spirited slap at Genie Francis. Haven’t they tormented poor Genie enough?

Steve
Guest
Steve

To finally give Kevin an independent storyline 2 weeks after Genie leaves? Seems strange unless Jon Lindstrom told them he wants out. Even if he did, Kevin could have just moved to Europe with Laura..

If Kevin does have Ryan’s memories, to be accurate he’ll have to be obsessed with Felicia.

Please don’t let this be yet another attempt to redeem Franco.

Laura and Kevin had the potential for great stories on GH. What do writers do? Send Laura away in more ways than one, much to the upset of fans. And now they are having Kevin resurrect his sicko brother? And what is it with GH and brothers as of late…Jason/Drew, Nathan/Heinrich, and now Kevin and his brother? And so many with some degree of unstable/mental problems on GH to drive a story, starting with Laura during Luke days. Others Heather, Franco, Kevin’s brother, Sonny, Morgan, Nina. And now “lovely” Carly is using mental as a weapon against Nelle. One would… Read more »

Nancy, hadn’t heard that one yet. Jon Lindstrom is such a fine actor, I look forward to seeing anything they give him. As sad as we all are to see Nathan’s character leave the canvas, nobody can dispute the superior story and performances we gained from it. Some have already suggested you’d have to go back to 1994 (with some of these same actors), the BJ heart donation story, for anything as powerful as what we were treated to this week. As long as the writing remains this good and they continue to make use of the show’s history, I’m… Read more »

If this is true, Nancy, then GH really is going off the deep end. Just seeing Kevin (or is it Ryan?) lovingly clutching Faison’s “brain in a jar” was too weird for words. I wasn’t even pleased with the notion of Dr. Collins studying Franco because I believed it was simply another lame attempt at legitimizing RoHo’s clown into what passes for a normal human being, but if we’re headed down this perverse path to where Laura was unknowingy married to some sort of secret monster, then that is an ultimate slam at Genie Francis!

Yes indeed, Kevin morphing into his dead brother should indeed involve Laura!!

Nancy, I actually love this rumor. What I don’t understand is why would they have to ship off Laura so Kevin can have a front burner storyline? Can’t Kevin play the supporting husband while presenting us with an intriguing story at the same time? Jon Lindstrom is damned talented, an under utilized resource and he can certainly multitask. Ryan was a fascinating psychological study and JL played him brilliantly. I think he is far more riveting of a psycho than Franco is (I am so tired of Franco right now). I remember back when Ryan was obsessed with Felicia and… Read more »

I thought all the actors were absolutely terrific. Definite Emmy material all the way around. I loved the performances as much as I hated that Nathan is gone. I think it will be very hard to fill the shoes of the character that was a wonderful brother,, sexy, and caring husband, loyal buddy, member of the police force, great friend, etc. The charactor had a warm relationship with most of the core characters and some characters such as Amy who is not a core character. I think the acting was great, but … besides being so sad the character is… Read more »

Kirsten Storms did an amazing job with this material. I enjoyed seeing her act in a different capacity, other than, well, “Maxie.” I think the sonogram photo with the blood smear was a tad too much, though. Given the nature of the material, the high emotional content, I think this was just…eh. Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford also gave amazing, heart felt performances this week-kudos. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of the storyline-it’s too far fetched for me (brain mapping/swapping, memories saved on a hard drive, etc).

Unfortunately, there’s really not many left in the Q family. Alan, Tracy, Lila, Emily, AJ, Alice!…they’re all gone. There isn’t any way to resurrect this family as it once was. And that’s sad but just like real life. People die (as some of these actors have…others alive but died in story) so… Though I’m still hoping there’ll be ANOTHER go at AJ turning up alive (though I doubt it), I love that we’re seeing Ned and Monica.

Not easy to lie still with all the drama going on around him, plus appearing in the extra dreams sequences of Maxie and Nina. Also am appreciating Pete/Heinrich. Like the Q’s and Spencers the writers are going to have to fill the family legacy coffers if they didn’t have enough kids, or life just passes them by.

Since the first day Griffin graced us with his beautiful presence, I thought there was something mystifying about his past…. I doubt his paternity….Anna’s son? Nathan’s brother? Peter may also be Anna’s…..Anna and her twin Alex have a devastating past….reared by their evil aunt Charlotte (AMC)…..

Didn’t Faison say something about the Cassadines holding the key to it all? The lock of hair will sort it all out. At last, a GH mystery with more twists and turns than the tunnels of Windemere.

Hi, Nora,
Thanks for the heads-up…..Valentin, as Charlotte’s son, is only a supposition, on my part. It is not known; only conjecture……it is just that when little Charlotte came to PC, and since Valentin and Anna knew each other in their past lives….and the fact that we don’t know who Valentin’s mother is??….I saw an ‘opening’…..LOL, this may all be in my head….fallacious.
Ok, I won’t eat my hat…..LOL…..I looove your enthusiasm, my friend.

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.
