The first glimpse of Bree Williamson in her new daytime role on General Hospital is located inside the latest promo from ABC

Williamson who made her mark with soap fans when she played Jessica Buchanan and her alters on One Life to Live, is playing Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) ex-wife, Claudette West.

This summer look for Claudette to be heavy in story with the two men from her past, Nathan and Dr. Griffin Munro (Matt Cohen).

In On-Air On-Soaps latest interview with GH’s head writers Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante they revealed that Bree was their first choice for the role.  Altman related why: “Bree has a very intelligent, and sexy quality to her, and that is what we saw in this character.” Look for Bree’s first episode to air next week on July 5th.

Watch GH’s fourth of July promo after the jump featuring Bree’s debut and let us know if you are excited to see how her story plays out in the comment section below!

I wonder if she’ll have a French-Canadian accent?

Well a Canadian accent will be easy since that’s where Bree’s from, so I imagine so! I think she was trying to lose it on OLTL, as there was one time where she pronounced a Canadian ‘o’ and an American ‘o’ in the same sentence lol

Lol, too funny, Walter. It’s not the letter ‘o’ on itself….it’s the combination of ‘o’ and ‘u’ together….such as house, out, about etc.

If she does, Tim? It will be a fake one. The only citizens of Canada that have a French accent are the people of French descent who live in certain parts of the province of Quebec. The rest of the country speaks English. It is a fallacy to think otherwise. I visit family in Toronto on a regular basis, the only relatives that speak French are those who studied it in school. It is an ELECTIVE course; not mandatory. I also studied at U of T for a couple of semesters…..none had an accent and few spoke French. But, if… Read more »

@Christy.
Hi, Christy,
There’s a vast difference between an English accent and a Canadian accent. We, as Americans are very familiar with Canadian actors, comedians, singers…entertainers, in general. With the exception of Celine Dion, who is a true French Canadian, I could never really tell the difference.
I did not even know Jason Thompson was Canadian. Same goes for Jim Carrey, Drake, Ryan Gosling, and so many more.
Many of my husband’s relatives have been here over 40 years….they still speak with an Italian accent. As do my Grandparents who speak with a thick Scottish brogue.

She confirmed in SOD that she would be using her natural Canadian accent, and would not be using an American one.

Celia

Hey, Scott, You know that each country in the world has slang, dialect and an accent that may vary from state to state, town to town. As far as I am concerned there’s no true American accent. New Yorkers have different accents, depending on the borough in which one lives. New Englanders have accents that are so different from Connecticut to Maine. Just to name a few. As a matter of fact, there are some parts in Maine that people speak with a French Canadian accent. (Frenchville). So, the same goes for Canada. As I said, Torontonians do not have… Read more »

Me too! Wonder if she and Franco will pass by each other at the hospital, and give each other funny looks. 😀

I will wait and see…she will bring baby Nate?…she will be crazy and try to kill Maxie?…soap ex’s are like stalkers…they all end up in town and want their ex back doing whatever they can do get him or her back instead of moving on-sigh!!!

Sure she will be bringing (or hiding) a baby and there will be a “whose the daddy” storyline and as usual, there will be tampering at the hospital lab with the results.

You’re on a roll, Jimmy. Claudette will stalk both Griffin and Nathan…..with hook, line and sinker; the priest by his collar; the cop by his holster.

I liked Ms. Williamson on OLTL and am happy to see her on GH. Please allow us a compelling story line and make it longer term. That said, Port Charles is a very crowded place these days. I am not sure everyone is needed. And that is difficult to say as there is a lot of talent in the studio.

I hope they don’t just bring her in as a one note bad girl and waste the talents of yet another high profile soap star. A good cop and a good doctor (priest?) both loved this woman, so if she was just another garden variety bad girl, it would be lazy storytelling and a huge letdown, and would further undermine and weaken Nathan and Griffin’s status as leading men. They just CANNOT introduce her in any fashion similar to how they botched Michelle Stafford’s entry. They, the powers that be, were so excited and eager to get their new prize,… Read more »

Bree is amazing — she should’ve been a Lulu recast. Sadly, with the current head writers I don’t look for her character to have any longevity.

Bree Williamson was one of the actresses I thought of to take on the role of L after I’d gotten over the initial shock of Julie Berman taking leave of GH.

I really look forward to Bree’s debut. I was never a big fan of her Jessica on OLTL but just the other day watched her scenes where Nash died and she was amazing. She had me in tears, as embarrassing as it is to say. Hope her GH character is interesting.

Great, another new character to suck up airtime. Meanwhile, a story that started oh, 2 months ago Laura & Dr. Collins hasn’t even gotten off the ground. OH yes, I should be sooo excited, right? NOT.

I’m with ya. But, I predicted that Laura’s story would go nowhere. I know this crappy show too well.

I wish she were playing Jessica. This character does not sound like one that will be able to stay.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
