GH's Laura Wright Tweets Easton, Howarth & Alderson Will Be Back! Is The Character Stand-Off Over?

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

As fans know, today is for now the last tape date we know of at General Hospital for original One Life to Live crossovers, Michael Easton (John), Roger Howarth (Todd) and Kristen Alderson (Starr)!

Meanwhile, everyone is anxiously awaiting official news from Prospect Park, and ABC and General Hospital, just how the character dispute of who will have Starr, John, and Todd on their canvas, and who will be playing the parts will resolve itself.   Over the last several weeks, this has been a red hot button issue in the soap industry and for long time fans of both OLTL and GH!

However today, Daytime Emmy winner Laura Wright (Carly, GH) tweeted a few tweets that have many speculating that  now Roger, Kristen, and Michael will be back shortly to resume working on GH!  Wright tweeted, “We are not saying goodbye to Roger, Michael and @krisalderson – just see ya in a few :))))))  A few weeks!!! They’ll be back!!!! :)))))”

So what do you think of Laura’s statements? Do you think this might be resolved? Weigh-in!

I think they’ll tape for a few weeks at OLTL and then at GH while they sort out storylines. It doesn’t sound like OLTL’s schedule is going to be as grueling with 4 1/2 hour eps a week, so they might be able to do several weeks worth and then jet back to LA.

The big question is will Starr, John and Todd be back????

Blake

Oh that’s true Jamie, I forgot about that!!! I really hope it’s as the characters and not new ones, that would be weird and confuse fans that don’t read about these things online or in the magazines. Plus it would bite to have those characters recast on oltl

The actors may come back as different characters. Laura Wright said the actors would be back. She didn’t say anything about their characters. I bet that OLTL recasts all their characters.

KenJ: But as Carolyn Hinsey said in this week’s Soap Opera Digest, none of them have a signed contract!

Mark
Guest

The 3 actors, Kristen Alderson, Michael Easton and Roger Howarth are all under contract with ABC and none of them want to go back to the east coast. If OLTL uses their characters, Starr, John and Todd, then OLTL would have to recast and GH would bring the actors back as different characters.

Me too!!! Love Todd with Carly. They’ve shared chemistry from the very first scene they did together. Honestly, the characters of Todd and John have become an integral part of the GH canvas. Unfortunately for the character of Starr, she has been relegated to the role of Michael’s girlfriend and not much else.

It makes good sense for Roger, Kristen and Michael to be part of the nuOLTL to finish what story lines belong with Todd, Starr and McBain in Llanview and then return aa the same characters to GH and Port Charles. (We really need to know what Allison Perkins has done with Victor, but why put that story on GH? We want the John/Liam business settled.) So let’s patiently wait and see what happens. JMHO

Two of the three actors refused to sign with PP and chose to relocate to LA before GH. I don’t think they have changed their minds. The characters can return to OLTL or perhaps PP wants a large payoff to keep them on GH? Either way, I hope the actors do what they want and stay on GH. I’m a fan of both shows and have been for 35+ years. I want the actors to do what they want and work where they want.

I like Todd & Starr better on GH and McBain better on OLTL. So if anything OLTL could take John back but I want the other 2 to stay on GH. I know not everyone agrees so we will see what happens. I love both shows though so how ever it works out will be fine.

The characters might belong to OLTL, but not the actors. The only one who signed with PP last time was ME, but now he has a contract with ABC. It’s not ABC’s fault the actors chose to sign contracts with GH. OLTL might get the characters back, but different actors will be playing them.

The characters of Todd, John, & Starr belong to OLTL. The actors cant be forced to leave, but the can go back ad different people. If they don’t,OLTL will have to recast because these three character are pivotal to their canvas & interactions with the characters already signed on. Its simple, when you don’t make your car payments, your car is repossessed. Sorry, GH your car is being towed. Plus, you have many legacy veterans their that you can use. To bad that RC sucks & is all about gimmicks!!

Brian Tripp

I don’t want different actors playing these roles on OLT. These actors ARE these characters. I also do not want them playing different characters on GH. I think that ABC and Cartini just said that to make a point. The actors don’t want to move back to NYC fulltime but maybe they can make special trips and do both shows off and on.

OLTL is recasting other characters, so I don’t see why they couldn’t recast these. three…and I LOVE OLTL and want it back with all my heart. But I still don’t think it is fair to these 3 stars to be in the middle of this. I think PP letting them share is a good way to go.

Yea, it’s a damn shame GH’s ratings are higher than they have been in years. Those writers obviously have no idea what they are doing. It’s too fun to watch now that the cast has expanded beyond Sonny, Jason and Carly. Very hard to follow the story lines now that they involve more than 3 or 4 characters.

Christine
Guest
Christine

I love the name ‘Rachel,’ but I have to agree with ria.

I think it is wonderful that GH has an ensemble cast now. It is so refreshing to see Sonny being more human and having other things to do than being a mob boss … and on every day.

I think most of the newcomers have added to the show. I had my doubts about some, but they are fitting in. My ONLY complaint is that Elizabeth Herbst does not have much going on, but I have faith that will change.

Yeah, it has nothing to do with legacy actors such as Kevin, Lucy, Laura, Robert, Anna, coming back. Its just the three lone characters from cancelled OLTL that brought them in. vampires, & all. Please. These characters belong to OLTL not GH. Carvalanti should have brought them on the show as new characters. Oh wait, there isn’t a creative bone in his body to do that. Well, depending on what PP decides to do because afterall, those characters are theirs not GH’s. Sucks for the actors, but they also should have known that the possibility of PP getting the funding… Read more »

Casey I never said the OLTL characters were the reason GH is doing so good. My point was that FV and RC did not ruin the show, but that they probably saved it. The ratings have been going up steadily since they took over and most of the vets just started coming back recently and are only on for short stints. I love the 3 characters, and now I love them on 2 shows. It sucks that this is how things worked out, but those actors had to do what was best for them at the time. No one forced… Read more »

Just have to get them there and away from ron and franks horrible writting. i dont agree with todd and carly i dont believe todd is in love with her i dont care what anyone says. And todd and carly are SOOOO BORING together its painful to watch. I dont like john on gh i LOVED him on oltl. I dont see them as totally true GH never will these three have family and children and loved ones in llanview and thats where they belong in llanview.

Kim G

Yes, they can cross back. The three belong on OLTL, they are not true GH’ers to everyone. Todd doesn’t love Carly. Even Carly knows that one whiff of Blair and he’d be gone. RC has destroyed Todd. Get Todd out of his hands and back on OLTL. McBain basically acts the same so there is no problem with him being seen as John. They are OLTL characters and are needed on that show.

lilou

But Todd played by Roger Howarth wants to stay on GH !
Todd is great on GH anyway, he has lot’s of new stories and new characters to play off with and it works. Blair and co can have their own stories on OLTL reboot.
Maybe one day he could come back on OLTL but for now he is a great character for GH imho.

My problem with this is she only mentions the actor’s names…not the characters. We already knew that ABCD “owns” the actors while PP owns the characters. The only announcement I’m waiting for is that Roger Howarth’s Todd Manning ends up on my TV…don’t care if it’s from HuluPlus (OLTL-PP) or network television (GH-ABCD). Wish ABCD would play nice with PP and allow all the OLTL actors to cross over from time to time. The only thing that I’m absolutely sure of is that this is a complete mess and of course I will be watching AMC, OLTL and GH no… Read more »

As i said numerous times i see no reason why the two shows cant do crossovers. John, Todd, and Starr could return briefly to OLTL to wrap up old storylines and then return to new home GH. Both shows could swap a few characters in the beginning like Natalie visiting John in PC with Liam who might have a medical crises and are flown to General Hospital for special treatments. Then both shows can move on with new stories. GH could pair John with Sam, and OLTL could pair Natalie with Cutter who redeems himself in Clints eyes after rescuing… Read more »

Sometimes not everyone ends up with or stays with who the belong. I wouldnt mind M.E. playing another character on GH but that wouldnt work well with the other two actors who play Todd and Starr. While M.E. could easily fit in as Caleb it would be a little too crazy seeing Todd and Starr return as completely different characters with no connection to the show after Todd and Starr have already settled in and are part of Micheals and Carlys story. If they do return to gh as different characters theyd have to be in different plotline for me… Read more »

Michael Easton is such a great actor. His portrayal of Caleb was always mesmerizing. No matter how evil Caleb was, he was fun to watch because of ME. And Easton’s portrayal was so layered that the viewer was always torn. Caleb was evil yet you wanted him to be redeemed.

k/kay, I don’t hate the vampire story. I just hope they do it justice by playing it out, but not milking it dry. As I told you, I watched PC back in the day and I don’t want to see a mockery out of it. Taylor something, I think (Twilight). He is darker than the young man who plays Rafe. I enjoy Michael Easton as Caleb, as always, but what little I have seen, he seems MUCH more mean than Caleb of PC ever was. He has the sexiness down, but if what we are seeing is the real deal,… Read more »

I agree… I love, love, love the vampire story as I have said before. I watched Port Charles back in the day also. I loved Michael Easton then and I still do. He is an awesome actor. Boring? I don’t know what planet the person that said that fell off of. Also, Kelly Monaco was amazing back then as Livie and she still is as Sam. The deal is the actor has to have the right storyline wrote for them. I thought she did an excellent job when Jason “died”.

I have to say, if the characters of Todd, John and Starr are recast on the OLTL reboot, I am going to 100% hate ABC for screwing over what should be an awesome moment. Yes, the show can and WILL succeed regardless, but to a lot of people, myself included, you cannot replace the actors in these roles. Just the thought makes me sad. I pray that they’ve worked something out for both shows to continue and do well.

The characters belong first and foremost to OLTL. I do hope to see crossovers but am very unhappy with the farcical romance of Todd and Carly. Carly trumps Todd in testosterone every time. She completely unmans and out mans him in every scene. A formerly tormented and complex character, it was dismaying to see him reduced to being hauled around by his ear today. What’s next, a Todd clown car? SOS Todd back to OLTL as even the mighty Roger Howarth cant save this current incarnation of the character.

Very well said. Todd on GH has become a castrated buffoon with his manly parts lost in the bottom of Carly’s purse (like so many men before him). Please get him back to OLTL, but whatever happens, I just want this pale imitation of Todd Manning put out of his (and my) misery.

In the end just have the actors happy and a decision made!!

The character belong to PP not the actors, and the actors do not belong anywhere except where they want to be .. If they do not want to go on with OL/PP and want to stay with GH, good for them and the best decision they could make for themselves would be stay with GH for many reasons.. You could get the 3 characters back to OL but you may not the actors, that is their decision, and it is obvious they want to stay on GH, as they did not sign on with PP the first time around. (they… Read more »

I guess I understand why they must return, to OLTL. But it doesn’t seem fair. The show was cancelled. The actors moved on., Now they are being uprooted and made to return to a cancelled show. Leave them at GH and let OLTL, figure out a storyline….without those 3.

The actors are not being uprooted the characters are. PP will get the characters back and have to recast and GH will keep the actors and will have to create new roles. In ME case he can become a human version of Caleb Morley.

That would be hard GH is filmed in CA and OLTL will be filmed in Conn. The commute would be a nightmare in the winter. Conn is currently digging out of it’s latest snow storm. IF ME,RH amd KA were working on OLTL now they would be stranded. ME and RH have young kids at home that I am sure they want to spend their free time with . The commute for the actors would make sharing a bad idea. The shared story lines would be a turn off to RC and FV. OLTL will want John and Natalie and… Read more »

Just watched Friday’s episode and will gladly enjoy a break from the vampire character of Caleb…

If the character of John McBain is a no go on GH… let ME come back as somebody else and let this whole vampire arc be a dream of Lucy’s and we went along for the ride up until now.

I want them back as Carly and Todd are a good couple and two of the best actors on GH. Starr and Michael are also a good couple. They all add to GH which was down in the ratings a year ago. Also want John back as John and not in that silly vampire storyline.

I’m so glad to have found this site – thaks to the people on “Revive Port Charles” on Facebook. I’m loving the recent story lines and especially Michael Easton as Caleb Morley. He makes the best vampire ever!

Frankly I’m tired of all the bickering. They belong to us OLTL. But if they want to stay there, then I say good riddance.
I don’t think there should have been a fight about it to begin with, they should have just returned.

I like the other Todd better anyway now even though he’s not really Todd, so lets try and get him back on OLTL and leave Roger to his GH.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Port Charles Learns a Bomb Caused the Explosion as Lives are Forever Changed

This week’s General Hospital has reminded us all of why we love daytime drama and why GH possesses some of the finest performers in the genre.

Wednesday’s episode featured several emotionally-charged and gut-wrenching moments as loved ones find out the fate of several people in crisis, or have to deliver terrible news in the wake of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib, which already had taken the lives of Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Dustin (Mark Lawson).

Courtesy/ABC

As we begin, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) has a passed-out Lulu (Emme Rylan) in his arms and brings her to Portia (Brook Kerr), who sends her for tests.  And in true soap opera fashion, just as Lulu was presumably going to tell Dane she still loved him and wanted him back (following Dustin’s death) … he never heard what she had to say.

 

Laura (Genie Francis) fills in Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) that Dev did not make it, and then Liz decides to tell her son, Cameron (William Lipton) the heartbreaking news while he is recovering from his injuries.  When she does, Cam is overcome and devastated as his mother holds him in her arms.  Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) is filling-in Trina (Sydney Mikayla) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) about Dev’s untimely death.

Later, with Laura present, Portia tells Lulu’s loved ones that she has a cerebral contusion, and that there is a a traumatic brain injury which has caused swelling on the brain.  Laura and Dante look on devastated.  Portia then says they have already rushed Lulu to urgent surgery.

Julian (William deVry) is with Ava (Maura West) at Wyndemere.  She is attempting to hide him there, while he figures out his next step after planting the bomb.  However, Jason (Steve Burton) shows up looking for Julian now that Sonny found out that a bomb caused the explosion that ravaged the Floating Rib.  From that point on calls are made to ensure Sonny’s family is protected as a mob war is about to go down. Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Jason believe all roads lead back to Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober).

Jason leaves Wyndemere before spotting Julian; leaving a distraught Ava to come down hard on her brother … he has two choices…  leave Port Charles, which she will help him do, or stay, and if he stays, she will not help him or be a part of his life.  While they are discussing his next move, they learn Lulu is now in critical condition from the bomb.  Ava tells Julian in no uncertain terms that everything he has done has come with a cost.  Jason shows up at the Corinthos home where Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is not happy about any of this, finds out along with Carl,y that Jason believes he was the target at the Floating Rib.

As Liz is struggling to hold it together with Franco (Roger Howath) having brain surgery, she speaks with Scott (Kin Shriner), who did not know of his son’s tumor.  She shares with Franco’s dad that Franco is worried he will wake up a very different person.  Liz is told Franco is out of surgery, and is in tears over his hospital bed.  She prays he will be alright and Franco wakes up!

Portia tells Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Laura, and Dante that Lulu is out of surgery but in a coma, which Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) points out is normal in these situations. Dante goes to sit by Lulu’s bedside and begs her to wake up.

Courtesy/ABC

Then, in devastating news for Laura, Lucas (Matt Trudeau) gives her the real 411 on Lulu.  He tells Laura that Lulu’s brain started swelling the minute she hit her head at the Floating Rib, and that her injury got worse the longer she was not checked out.  Laura achingly realizes Lulu was so worried about Dustin that she never was immediately checked out for head trauma.  Lucas lets Laura know that Lulu’s recovery could take a very long time, if she recovers at all.

Heart-tugging performances throughout the stellar episode were given by: Dominic Zamprogna, Genie Francis, William Lipton, Rebecca Herbst, and Maura West in very intense and dramatic scenes.

So, what have you thought of this week’s episodes of GH? The fate of Lulu? The performances from yesterday’s airshow? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
