The one and only Nancy Lee Grahn gave an insightful interview with TV Guide Magazine about her character, Alexis Davis’s newest family dilemma with her children! You see, her daughter Kristina (fathered by mobster Sonny Corinthos) is being badly beaten by her abusive boyfriend, and blames another man for her plight in the process. Grahn weighed in on the parenting situation.  Here are a few excerpts!

Grahn on the message this storyline sends out to parents of teens: “I have talked to plenty of parents who have great parenting philosophies and are very communicative with their children, and still their kids are doing all kinds of bad things. Of course, it doesn’t help that Kristina is surrounded by violence. The bullets are always flying in Port Charles. We’ve got a lot of hit n’ runs. We’ve got kidnappings. Kristina’s father [Sonny, played by Maurice Benard] is a gangster who kills people for a living. Let’s face it, the odds of her turning out normal aren’t good. Clearly, the poor kid is headed for therapy.”

Grahn on why Alexis did not see the warning signs from Kristina: “You’d think that in real life it would hard to miss the signs, but it happens. And [head writer] Bob Guza was careful not to put Alexis in a situation where she had any overt clues. Listen, Alexis isn’t perfect. [Laughs] She has all kinds of flaws, some I don’t even know about. When they pass out the scripts, I only read my pages so I had no idea what the other people in Port Charles were saying about my character. Apparently everybody thinks she’s a control freak!”

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.
