General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) will be heading for a guest-star turn on ABC’s hit primetime series, Castle starring Nathan Fillion!

TV Line learned first the exclusive today, that the two-time Daytime Emmy winner will play Samantha Voss, a wealthy, recently divorced woman, caught in a hilariously ill-willed War of the Roses struggle with her ex-husband (played by Weeds‘ Brendan Ford.)  The episode, titled “Significant Others,” is slated to air in early January.

Grahn isn’t the only soap veteran appearing in the episode. The actress’ former Santa Barbara co-star, and last seen on The Bold and the Beautiful, Jack Wagner, is confirmed to play a famous golfer whose wife turns up dead.

In addition to her upcoming appearance on Castle, Grahn will be making a stop at the daytime cooking/foodie show, The Chew on the November 8th episode!

Are you excited to see Nancy on Castle?  Let us know!

    Love that show! Will look forward to seeing her. Whenever one of “my” soap stars make a guest appearance on a primetime show, it’s like a little family reunion for me. :0)

    In a word, Yes. I’m hoping she has a larger part than so many other soap stars usually end up with on primetime. Often it’s just one short scene.

    I’m glad Nancy will be on an episode of Castle. The star, Nathen Fillion, played Joey Buchanon on OLTL and has always been loyal to that show and the daytime genre. They actually have cast many ex-soap stars on Castle. My problem is Nancy guesting on the Spew. I’m guessing she is being forced to do this by her bosses at ABC/D. I’m never happy when one of our soap actors is on that terrible show that took AMC’s place. We soap fans have long memories!

      Castle is a great show, and Nathan Fillion is wonderful in it (as are the other characters/actors), and like you Mary, I adore the fact that he never forgot his soap opera roots, always speaking highly of the genre in interviews, and often having soap stars on the show – thanks Nathan and kudos to you!!! I can certainly see Nancy playing the character of Samantha Voss, and I know she will do a wonderful job, and Jack Wagner playing a golfer is certainly him, so I am sure the show will be great, and I look forward to seeing it. While I loved and miss AMC and do not watch the Chew, I am in favor of any crossovers that GH characters can do, to possibly bring additional viewers to it. I also wish the View would have GH stars on their show, just like The Talk has CBS soap stars on their show all the time. I am sure someone at ABC Daytime had to have thought of that, so I wonder why they are not appearing on the View — come on Barbara Walters invite some GH soap stars onto your show, that can only help both shows!!!!!

    Yes, I am glad that Nancy will be on Castle, my favorite primetime show. I would also love to see Erika Slezak (Nathan’s mom Viki on OLTL). That would be so great to see them together again.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.
