One of the most exciting happenings in daytime, and for fans of the sad and powerful love story of  GH’s Robin and Stone, is that the ABC sudser is bringing back Michael Sutton to reprise his role of Stone Cates, the week of September 28th.  That is when we see our Robin in a perilous situation where she needs Stone the most.   

As many know, Stone died of AIDS and his story has resonated for years. TV Guide caught up with Sutton for a short take on playing a ghost again, when he has done it previously on the series.   Here is an excerpt below:

Sutton on Stone hanging around as a spirit after he originally died on-air back in the mid-nineties: “At that point I was so emotionally drained and exhausted that I begged them to end it. I had just come off nine straight months on the show dealing with disease, drugs, life, death, time. It was really heavy. I remember having to sit down with the producers and say, “You’ve got to let Stone die! Really die!” I just couldn’t continue as an apparition. On some level, I was worried about the psychosomatic effect on my mind and body. In order to act something like that, you have to live it, and that required putting myself through a long, long period of trauma. And don’t forget that back in the mid-’90s we were all dealing with AIDS and HIV in real-life, too. Stone got it because he had a girlfriend who was an intravenous drug user and we were doing the story at a time when there was a lot of casualness about sex and drugs. At that time, every one of us in our late teens and twenties could relate in some way — we all had friends who had a drug problem and friends who were having unprotected sex because they were straight and didn’t think of themselves as susceptible. It wasn’t just a soap story. It was a story that could easily happen to anyone. ”

Make sure to come back to On-Air On-Soaps next week for our feature interview with Michael Sutton!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Marcus Learns He’s Not Trina’s Biological Father

On Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, Trina (Tabyana Ali) opened the DNA test results that would conclude who is her actual bio-dad. Would it be the man who raised her, Taggert (Réal Andrews) or, the man she more recently has come to know, Curtis (Donnell Turner)?

At GH, Marcus, Curtis and Portia (Brook Kerr) gather to learn the results.  It turns out that Curtis is Trina’s biological father, not Marcus.

However, are these results, correct? Are DNA results ever correct on soaps? Did Selina Wu (Lydia Look) have something to do with switching these in favor of Curtis? Are we digging into this too much?

After the revelation, Trina tells Curtis. they will need to take some time need to figure out their relationship.  Trina makes it clear she’s not looking for a replacement father, and hopes he can understand and accept that.  Curtis promises he will let Trina take the lead on things.

Meanwhile, Taggert, who promised Trina no matter what happens that nothing will change between them, decides to take off and breaks down in the elevator.  Marcus is devastated and in tears, and is left using the elevator as a punching bag for his fists.

You can watch the final moments of the scene, featuring a heart-tugging performance by Réal Andrews below.

Now let us know, are you glad Trina’s bio-dad turned out to be Curtis and not Marcus … or were you hoping it would turn out the other way around? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

DAYS and GH Alum Tyler Christopher Arrested for Public Intoxication

Daytime Emmy-winner, Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas, GH; ex-Stefan, DAYS) was arrested for public intoxication at the Burbank, California airport, this past Friday, on May 26th.

According to the Burbank PD and reports obtained by TMZ, Tyler was arrested after they found him asleep and on the ground at the American Airlines terminal.  The officers noted that Tyler displayed clear and objective signs of drinking.  They also reveal he was unable to care of himself.

Christopher, who remains a fan favorite as the former Nikolas Cassadine on GH and Stefan DiMera on DAYS has opened up and discussed his battle with alcoholism in the past.  Last year, he appeared on former GH co-star Maurice Benard’s You Tube series, State of Mind.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Who Will Turn Out to be Trina’s Biological Father … Curtis or Taggert?

This week’s episodes of General Hospital are set to deliver some needed results and some bombshells.  First, Victor’s will is read, but, in true GH fashion, the evil Cassadine delivers his reading via a videotaped message of himself in a return appearance by Charles Shaughnessy,

Meanwhile, Trina (Tabyana Ali), Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Portia (Brook Kerr) have all been awaiting the DNA tests results to prove that Trina is the biological daughter of Curtis, not Marcus Taggert (Réal Andrews) .

At the same time, Curtis is moving back in with Portia, after his lip lock with his ex-wife, Jordan (Tanisha Harper).

Spencer (Nicholas Chavez) and Trina are at the center of both storylines, because Uncle Victor probably left something behind for Spencer, while Trina will be dealing with the fallout from the DNA results.
