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.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.
