This week, Michelle Stafford will become more a part of the General Hospital canvas as Nina wakes up from her coma and then begins the road to reclaiming her life and reconnecting with those she loves and those who have wronged her!  Just how will it all play out?

Stafford spoke with noted soap journalist and columnist Carolyn Hinsey in a new interview out today about her arrival onto the Port Charles scene, where she talks about being the new kid on the block, working with Kelly Monaco (Sam) and Michael Easton (Silas) and working with head scribe Ron Carlivati and executive producer Frank Valentini to make Nina come to life!   Here are a few excerpts below!

Michelle on being a hit character on one soap (Y&R’s Phyllis) and then coming to another soap and creating a new character and the challenge of it: “Sometimes an actor makes a splash on one show and then comes onto a new show expecting they’re going to make another splash. But you have to start each new job anew. I’m the new kid on the block. I am at GH to aid story.”

Michelle on what are her thoughts on working with Michael Easton:  “Amazing. I took his parking place one day and I want to publicly apologize for that. They gave me his spot; I think they just saw the ‘M.’ He’s really smart. He’s a writer himself… God, there’s so much I want to say about our conversations but if I tell you it will give away the character. There’s so little I can say.”

Michelle on the story with Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Silas:  “It’s OUR story, not my story. It’s important that they kick ass and I kick ass. I already told you about Michael, and Kelly is amazing. I really like my scenes with her. I haven’t seen them yet. I hope they’re good.”

Are you looking forward to seeing Michael Easton, Kelly Monaco and Michelle Stafford in scenes together?   And what happens when the the character of Nina causes some major problems for her loved ones and family?  Weigh-in below!

Well I think Phyllis should not come back to Y&R at all . That part has been played out. Nick does not need that

The role of Phyllis was recast last week.

What we need is flashbacks to twenty years ago showing Silas and Ninas relationship from its beginning, their marriage and when she fell into coma…cant feel for her good or bad unless i know more about their relationship and why Silas cheated on her…flashbacks would help immensely. But im ok with this storyline…we know Silas and Sam…we just dont know Nina!!!

I would think as this mystery unravels, we will see some staged flashbacks, but for now, they are leaving us guessing. For a major plot devised outside the core GH world, it is really working.

I also hope GH does flashbacks of Silas and Nina’s relationship.That way we can see how they were back then instead of just hearing them talk about it.Plus it could be interesting if Silas and Nina remember things differently.

Is this really Nina or Natalie Buchanan in a rubber mask…kidding aside how long has she been out of a coma…did she just wake up and know everything…could she even function normally: walk and drive a car after being in a coma for so long…or has she been out of coma for some time now…just curious!!!

She woke up for the I Phone 6.

@ jmh not real impressed with the entrance of the character I have a feeling she is going to turn out to be a little bit on the creepy side! I am going to reserve judgement to be fair but right now not sure MS is going to have the chemistry with ME that KM does.

I can’t wait to see Michelle Stafford full-time on GH.Plus as much as Michelle knows she was great on Y&R she knows been on GH is a whole new ball game so to speak.Plus it sounds like she wants to be a team player on GH and not be the star or try to take it over.

More Michele less Rafe, TJ, Jordan, and that annoying Zen dude that hangs with Maxi!

I love your idea of flashbacks to twenty years ago,so that we can feel invested in their relationship. I would go even further and suggest flashbacks to when they met in College but then they may have to hire actors in their late teens early twenties to portray them, I hate when they use the same actors but they film it hazy so you are supposed to believe you are seeing the younger versions of the characters.

Well in the case of GH, for flashbacks they can always use Spenser as Silas, Emma as Nina and the new Jocelyn as Ava…i just had to say it before someone else does…lol…but seriously i wouldnt mind whoever would play them in flashback…i would love it if D.M. came back as Madeline as well to do the flasback…i think flashbacks to tell the story of their relationship would make for some high entertaining drama as well help us invest in their relationship…just a thought!

At least flash them back twenty years. Both actors look good for their age. They could pull it off. What I would do is go back twenty years and rehire a former actor that was on GH and have him or her have history with these two characters and then bring that old GH character back to Port Charles in 2014. No one comes to mind but you can look up what happened on GH in those days and write someone back into the show that was a fan favorite.

Now, Sam’s husband Jason needs to come back and be played by Michael Muhney. Talk about a four way love triangle. HOT, HOT, HOT

THAT would put the kibosh on so many things, perhaps

and solidify a quantum leap… for GH

doesn’t it seem… it needs to be a part of the conversation…. that RC/FV are trying to encompass long time fans and newbie… with surcharged euphemism… that change is imminent in this genre of 2014. this crap shoot.. juggling of demographics

I don’t know… imagine

Michelle Stafford
Michael Muhney.. YES.. in any platform… he’d culls his all and be
Michael Easton
Kelly Monaco

this is right up there with superlative

as reiterated…

if Carly and Franco left the canvas…

would they be missed?

for all the bait and hook/switch… and on going derision of cast miss

I don’t think so…

heck i’ve even thought… would Roger Howarth and Laura Wright
not… be a good EJ and Sami for Days of OUR Lives

even tho.. i’d love Trevor St. John… Michael Muhney… Brandon Barash… even Josh Kelly.. as the new EJ

and Kelly Sullivan as the nuSami

all being temporary recasts.. should James Scott and Alison Sweeney want to be home.

it’s a wrench to be sure

TPTB has us in a headlock

LOL… yet I’ll soapbox… with

MM in a black leather jacket. Cool.

No offense but SB is Jason leave the character dead unless SB wants to come back. Just like Phyllis on Y&R should have stayed in the coma we have now deaged her character almost a decade. You hear me RC leave Jason dead.

I’m looking forward to Siam overcoming the obstacles and hard times Nina will bring them. I truly believe Silas and Sam’s love will overcome NIna. Silas loved Nina 20 years ago. He’s a changed man now and in love with someone new. For myself, I am invested fully in Silas and Sam not a couple that happened offscreen 20 years ago, flashbacks or not. I do believe Nina will try to wreck as much havoc on their lives as possible though.

I’m also looking forward to seeing how Sam and Silas deal with Nina’s arrival.Plus as you point out the Silas Nina knew 20 years no longer exists.Silas moved on with his life and fell in love with someone else.What happened to Nina was not her fault and she was robbed of 20 years of her life but she’ll have to accept that she can’t go back and recapture what she lost.I do think Nina will be a villain but she might also have parts that could get sympathy from the fans.

Guess I’m weird. Not familiar w/the actress that plays Nina ~ but not liking the Nina character at all. It’s way too crazy and silly ~ the writing, the plot line, think they should have left Nina dead !!!!

I knew GH would cast Michelle Stafford as Nina Reeves-Clay, she is one of my favorite soap actresses.

I wish her luck on GH. Loved her on Y&R. I just hope the show doesn’t cram her down our throats now. That never goes over well with long-time fans.

Michelle is a very smart lady I think she knows bringing on a new character is a tough sell I am for one curious to see how all this plays out and I hope RC writes a good story for all three of them. She is right just because you are a hit on one show does not mean you will be on another I think we are seeing that with SB on Y&R!

I didn’t care for MS on Y&R, and I’m not looking forward to her on GH. There are enough actresses on the show now. What they need are a few more single men.


that’s why I already posted…

what if… : Carly and Franco leave Port Charles and go to Holllywood
Yeah, right?


and this salary cap… is left to Brandon Barash.. and Ingo Rademacher… ex’s Johnny and Jax.. return to mix, fire, whet, and drive it ALL home

I’d rest and go with

I really just don’t care. Ugh-more montone Sam and Silas time. The only part of the storyline that I like is Madeline and Dr. Obrecht’s scenes as sisters, making digs at each other. They are a great comedic team!

you have a lot of point.

please do NOT show ME Silas in a tank top any more
try to reinvigorate Kelly Monaco’ Sam… with energy surplus

in a lot of ways… this does not bode well… for a powerhouse.. to mow shovel… and push aside… a big part of RC/FV trying to forge new ground

I am certain… MS’ Nina… will not break any new ground… and crack Silas and Sam… she should just gun for… any one else.. to whet her stimuli… and Franco isan easy but HOT target.. thereby giving LW’ Carly some unnerving drive… she could lose all her vigor

Donna Mills has never looked good… till .. Kathleen Gati happened on the scene… if she rocks it… and pulls… Madeleine and Nina.. then.. it’s a whew… OK…

it really amazes me… that the GH production.. hasn’t offered Kathleen Gati.. a contract… she’s expressed her wish

it’s with reservation… as I don’t think they have the cast pull off to begin… Michelle Stafford…

she’s magnanimous… delivers… rocks… salivates… satiates… ON FIRE : PULLS

I hope

Amen to that, dmr. I am actually dreading the entrance of Nina….I don’t care a whit about her character and having MS portraying her makes that disinterest ten-fold. I do not like her style of acting and I truly hope she doesn’t end up detracting from the already established dynamics of Dr. O. and Britt, plus Madeleine and Nathan. Just exploring that newly discovered family unit was more than enough to provide new blood and angles to an already existing drama, plus, I am totally in for Sam and Silas….which means not only do I express a distaste for Nina’s return, but Jason’s, as well.

I am so happy Phyllis, er, I mean Nina, is awaking from her coma and coming back to reclaim her family. I have missed Phyllis so MUCH! I mean, I have missed NINA so much!

I’m a bit late in this discussion but I agree with you Shay. I like Sam and Silas together and prefer that neither Nina nor Jason come between them. Obviously we all have history with Jason…Jason and Sam…so I think depending on the recast the fans will be split as to whether they’re on team Silas or Jason.

As for Nina, I found her a bit more interesting the second episode and a bit more sympathetic…but I’m sure she’ll be trouble moving forward. Her mom responsible for her coma…supposedly killing her baby (which I think will turn out to be Rafe), her husband having a child with Ava and in love with Sam. Yep…she’s gonna be one vengeful chick as the days go by…

Love love love Stafford! I hope this is the kind of soap triangle where I can’t decide who Silas should be with!

I do not like Nina – wasted space IMO – I FF all of her scenes – she is a crazy person and knows everything that has gone on in Port Chuck – total deceitful person – get her gone quick please

Sam and Silas definitely need something to liven them up IMO.

I do have some problems though with how Silas first cheated on the wife he claims to have loved and then just left her comatose self to rot in a nursing home for the next 20 years.

I know the backstory is that it was all the mother Madeline’s doing but it doesn’t seem like Silas did much to enforce his own rights to act on her behalf as her husband. That could make it a little hard to find Silas rootable in a triangle or quad.

Donna Mills/Madeline will be involved in the story..
this story holds some really powerful actors!
Looking forward to this story!!!

GOOD points

did Silas medical field “expertise” lend itself credibility..

and he left home… after being supported.. by… and paid for.. his doctorate

altho… the banger… up… is he didn’t know he was a father…

I hope ME and MS chemistry “together” is a must

if not… they have to bring back ex’s… Johnny and Jax.. to bring so much energies to : Nina… Carly… especially LW.. as it seems i’ve given her the let go… but… Olivia needs change… even AVA… with that lustful…. charged amped up … Johnny (with any one).. just to be near…

I still believe… that the writers need to delve in to a potential Sam and Patrick pairing… the missing in action… supposed better half… they have so much in common.. it’d tear up and guard this paring

Fans have so much enervating ideals

I stand by… that we are to be acknowledged

Sam and Patrick are great together…but she’s in love with Silas who’s on cavnas…Jason will be coming back…I think she’s got enough love for now. LOL. And, I think no matter how she tries to understand, she’ll be pissed at Patrick for not telling her Jason is alive.

welcome to GH Michelle, looking foward to seeing this story unfold,and looking forward to you interacting with other cast members. let the fun begin.

And did you catch that picture of Silas and The Nina? (At another board they are refusing to treat Nina as anything other than a plot point so are calling her “The Nina” which I like).
The Nina is supposed to have been in a coma for 20 years, right? They might have filmed Michelle Stafford through three closed doors but she STILL looked at least 40ish in that picture. And Silas looked like his own grampa. So did The Nina suffer from rapid aging syndrome, and did Silas catch it from her, or did Silas sneak into her room over the years, tape her eyes open, put clown makeup on her and pose for pictures?
No matter what, she looks a lot more like Alexis’ older sister than the resurrected wife of Silas McBain whateverthehellhisnameis.

“… And Silas looked like his own grampa. ”

I never laughed so fast and readily…. LOL… I so agree

that’s why I emphatically state…

Nina… with : ex-johnny
Nina… with : ex-Jax

perhaps… with Patrick
perhaps… with Franco

I just don’t see it yet… on the canvas

why not… Kevin… tnis is my best bet

I was thinking the same thing! A twenty+ year old picture? C’mon, use a little PhotoShop or something. Geesh! Next thing you know she’ll awake from her 20 year coma, grab her smartphone and check Silas’ Facebook status. Puhleeese.

Love Michelle Stafford so excited for her joining GH wishing her the best of luck❤

I really liked Michelle Stafford on Y&R. I hope she can bring some interest to this incredibly boring storyline. I’ve been FF through the Sam & Silas scenes since they came back from Ryan’s in NYC. ZZZZZZZZZZ.

Maybe she’ll liven up the rather wooden Nathan West too. He’s grown on me since his scenes with Maxie and Britt. (Not to mention he’s very easy on the eyes.) I’d like to keep him around to see his relationships develop with Maxie and his family.

My only hope is that the launching of “The (Good Ship)”Nina” is not as overdone as the previous ones featuring “The Ava” and “The Santa Sabrina.”

I watched Thursdays episode best part Liz & Patrick!

I have to say, that I liked the end of Tuesday’s episode where Sam and Silas walk back to Danny’s party and see Nina playing with Danny. I like how this was not drawn out, having Nina alive, following Sam and Silas around town or in hiding. I like how they wrote her to be out in public at a public outing. Obviously, Nina has been doing her homework behind the scenes. I think she will be an interesting character, looking for the life she lost with a lot of resentment for those that left her behind. As much as I don’t care for Sam or Silas, Nina could be what makes them interesting to watch.

Michelle Stafford is LOADED with EVERYthing

her embodiment – her being… is FULL of EVERYthing

I thought, like you… that it was a good entrance…

there was no acting… over acting… or downplaying… just there….

her presence

you could here her voice… as Silas walks towards the “party” and she turns

scene end

it’s not like it was “ITS Phyllis”

it was… there SHE is

Michelle Stafford

Nina’ ON

I feel a riveting… a bubbling… an ease… of FUN… dare… play with… play out… there she goes

an anticipation

I’m glad Michelle Stafford is back

ps: WITH Kevin!

till johnny or jax return

I have to say.. she was good today.. did not watch her on previous soaps… There is something about her that is keeping me intrigued…….Time will tell…though I was suprised how she was brought into GH storyline … thought it would have been different… .. I was thinking it was a dream for the for 15 mins.. then realized.. she really is at the Birthday party..

So sorry but Sam/Silas and/or Nina/Slias not working for me. Every time, I see Michael Easton. I only see John McBain. Silas Clay doesn’t hold a candle to John McBain. It’s painful to watch. ABC settle the lawsuit and get the rights back to OLTL.

As for Kelly and Michelle, both are lovely ladies; however, no one has better on screen chemistry with Michael Easton than Melissa Archer. Watch online videos of them. I haven’t ever seen a better soap couple, including Luke and Laura.

For Jolie fans, some great fan fiction out there to resolve the mess that GH and Prospect Park made of John and Natalie’s love story. Frank and Ron, perhaps you should take a read. Ratings gold.

If a viewer can’t get over an actor playing a different part, that’s on them. It’s not the writers’ responsibility to cast parts, or create characters, because one fan can’t suspend their disbelief. Even if the lawsuit was settled, you still wouldn’t be satisfied until your favorite couple was replaying their old storylines ad nauseum. Did you ever think maybe these actors are glad to be using their talent to create different characters? That is the definition of acting, after all.

I’ve only seen Ms, Stafford act occasionally because my Mom, (who got me hooked on all the ABC soaps back in ’69), had switched from ABC to Y&R ,B&B and all the other network soaps on TV; I became familiar with the actors and storylines but not on a regular basis.
I cannot say MS would have been my choice as Nina and I don’t know really know enough about her acting chops except for watching her portrayal of Phyllis from time to time on Y&R where I thought she was good to better on a sliding scale.
I was not impressed with her first real appearance ( Danny’s birthday party)because she didn’t act as someone who just came out of a 20 year coma (had I not known I never would have imagined that )and frustrated at the less than tepid acting job done by all in the scene but especially ME and KM, after realizing it was Nina sitting there. (and I am a huge fan of ME and KM but especially ME). Here was an opportunity to really use their acting skills -not over the top, but captivatingly. The same lackluster, forced conversations between ME and MS continued at Sila’s apartment. MS seems to be forcing her words and her smile is as well; regardless of whether she may have something up her sleeve, she is annoying. Me is completely flat. I understand he is shocked and not in touch with his feelings, but he needs to modulate. I hope this gets better .
It also strikes me that I don’t know why soap actresses who are in their late 40’s early 50’s think that it is ok to act as if they are in their 20-30s and that it is flattering to themselves- do they actually think they look that young enough to pull it off? I don’t, no matter how much botox, fillers or plastic they get. I couldn’t stand it with Susan Lucci and feel that way about quite a few actresses on GH including Maura West, Jackie Zeman, and Kristina Wagner and now Michelle Stafford. Yes I know Nina went into a coma 20 years before, but that still would have made her 29 and not 19 or 20. jmo

Just a thought here MS is trying to come off as someone that mentally is still in their 20’s remember she was in a coma for 20 years and yet her body looks like she has been working out at the gym every day for the last 20 years. Lol! I watched for three days now I am done nothing left to see. Amazing that I read the daily updates on the soaps see I am missing nothing so my DVR is still not recording. I feel like my Dad who use to tell me they don’t make cars like they use to they don’t make soaps like they use to either.

I agree with you that soaps (particularly ABCs ) aren’t written or produced as they were back in the early days. They all became practically unrecognizable after a head write named Megan McTavish systematically destroyed AMC ( breakdown writer 87-92, Head-writer ’92-95, 1997 – early 1999, 2003- 2007, OLTL ( Head-writer 1999 – January 2001 and finally GH (Head-writer April 2001 – June 12, 2002) I mentioned that I’ve been watching all ABC sudsers since ’69 so I recollect and compare as you do. The reason I originally loved the ABC shows so much was that individually they were trendsetters, edgy, pioneers and models in story treatment and production for other soaps (i.e super-couples, location shots, controversial topics of the day, great writers created character driven stories whose histories and integrities were kept in tact no matter what .until Mctavish changed that with a vengeance. My mother switched to all the other soaps particularly to Y&R, B&B and DOOL while I kept/keep hoping things will get better on GH. Wasn’t surprised that AMC and OLTL were canceled but GH is the last hurrah and I would be sad to see it go down the drain- I do think we need a miracle.

I can’t wait for Nina to leave GH

I agree. I don’t like this character at all, and since the storyline is so sudden, I don’t know her or feel connected to her. I don’t care about her. Besides, instead of helpless and “fragile,” she seems manipulative and sneaky. Like her mother.

I think the writers are insulting our intelligence to expect us to believe their version of someone who just came out of a 20 year coma. That being said, in a comment I made earlier I wasn’t positive about MS or Nina. I still don’t like Nina, but I softend my opinion MS after watching her scenes on the second day.

Michelle Stafford adult (female) at one point in her life, lived and functioned as a (male). John aka Michael Easton shared kisses with Nina aka Michelle Stafford…Is Michael Easton Bi-Sexual or was he even aware that she once was A man??? Many of us want to know?


I will never watch grneral hosp I cant stand michelle staffords acting now or when she was on yand r

I love MS, but don’t they have psychiatric therapists at GH,
for people who have been in long-term comas? You know,
to help Nina adjust to her new surroundings & all the years
she lost.

Really, shouldn’t Nina be in professional counseling rather than
running wild all over PC, thinking she’s still an ingenue ?? lol

There is absolutely no one who can play RED but Phyllis I’m so sorry for the lost of Y&R!!!

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.


The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.

Giovanni Mazza On Contract at General Hospital: What Are Your First Impressions?

This week, General Hospital introduced newcomer Giovanni Mazza in the role of Giovanni Palmieri, who apparently is Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) second cousin, one removed or so the story goes.

The character of Gio showed up at Brook Lynn’s wedding to Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and played the violin at the ceremony. As has been previously reported, Mazza in real-life is a professional violinist and actor.

Upon making his first appearance on the ABC daytime drama series back on May 15th, fans wondered if Gio will be sticking around and that was confirmed by the closing credits of the May 17th episode where Mazza’s name is included along with other contract players.

Photo: ABC

When the news of Mazza’s casting was announced, the talent young man took to his Instagram and shared the good news, expressing, “I am so honored, grateful, and ecstatic to announce the big news! The biggest thank you to General Hospital for bringing me.” He closed his sentiments with “So much love and joy to my new fam! YAY!!! ”

Commenting on his post included new castmates Evan Hofer (Dex) saying, “Happy to have you brother,” plus Tabyana Ali (Trina), Eden McCoy (Joss) and ABC executive Nathan Varni who said, “Congratulations! Welcome to GH!

Photo: ABC

During the May 17th episode, Gio had an exchange with Dex, where he mentioned that his father was in the military back in early 2000’s.  Previously, Gio revealed to Chase that his father died in the military when he was young. So this begs the question, who is Gio’s dad?

What were you first impressions of Giovanni Mazza in the role of Gio? Who do you think he might be romantically involved with and might be also related to other than the Cerullos? Comment below.

Michael Easton Shares on the Loss of Kamar de los Reyes, “I Was Holding His Hand When He Passed”

For the first time publicly, General Hospital’s Michael Easton (Finn) opened up about losing his best friend, the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, OLTL) to cancer.

The former One Life to Live and All American star lost his battle to cancer back on December 24, 2023 at the age of 56. De los Reyes leaves behind his wife, actress Sherri Saum (ex-Sunset Beach, OLTL) and their twin boys, Michael and John, and his eldest son, Caylen from a previous relationship.

Easton along with Y&R’s Trevor St. John (Tucker) were both castmates with Kamar during their time on One Life to Live. The two shared their remembrances this past Thursday night during’s live virtual event, Daytime Stands Up – A Benefit for Stand Up To Cancer … We All Have a Story.

In tribute, Michael expressed, “It was a 30-year friendship with Kamar. We did our first movie together in 1990. I was scared and I was quiet and I was instantly drawn to his bravado and his sense of himself. Kamar was larger than life. He was the best man at my wedding, and I am the godfather to his son, Michael. His loss was profound on all of us.”

He added, “There hasn’t been a day gone by that I haven’t thought of him, and his family and what he brought to this world, and the contributions he made, not only to this acting community. He loved being an actor and he was a great actor. I always like to say Kamar was such a good actor that they cast him as a priest, not just once, not twice, like seven times. I mean, he was often shirtless. But, if you needed a shirtless priest, Kamar was your guy.”

Photo: Facebook

When discussion turned to the end of Kamar’s life, Michael shared, “I was holding his hand when he passed, and he was surrounded by family and, and friends. There was so much love around him. I mean, he touched so many lives. I mean, Trevor knows that at his memorial, it was the biggest, at Forrest Lawn. They couldn’t even fit everybody in. There was people stretched out all the way to outside. People showed that hadn’t seen him in 20 years. That was the effect. So many of the One Life cast members came and cast from All American.”

Michael also spoke to Kamar’s determination till the end and his incredible work ethic, “Extraordinarily enough, he went to work two weeks before he passed at All American.  He was fierce to the end. He never talked about being sick. Even though the odds were stacked from the very beginning, and it’s still really hard for me to talk about, but I was in awe of his strength and his resolve. I would’ve shut down long before he did.”

If you haven’t done so watch below 46:47 mark for Michael and Trevor’s emotional appearances on Daytime Stands Up as they share their memories on Kamar.

Then let us know, what you thought of Michael’s candid tribute to his best friend via the comment section below.
