Grandson Of GH Creators, Duncan Hursley To Appear In Cameo With Kelly Monaco & Jason Thompson!

So here is an interesting scoop a la TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan today!  General Hospital recently cast the grandson of the series creators, Frank and Doris Hursley for a small but important role!  That’s right!

Duncan Hursley who has been an actor, and lives in Michigan where he is a true life product specialist for Mazda, will play an auto mechanic when Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Patrick (Jason Thompson) try to find Intel on who ran Patrick and Sabrina off the road that ultimately caused the chain of events that took the life of baby Gabriel!

The cameo will happen on-air on June 27th! According to Duncan, this is what to look for when Sam and Jason meet Mechanic Bill (Hursley) “Frank (Valentini) was very generous and put a lot of thought into the scene and the role. Of course, I can’t reveal much but there’s an element on the set that eagle-eyed viewers are going to love. It was so much fun. I’d go back in a heartbeat.”

Asked if he had been staying tuned to GH all these years, Duncan replied:  “I’d fallen way from watching GH for a number of years but all of a sudden I was hearing in the news about soaps being cancelled left and right. All My Children and One Life to Live were gone and there was concern that GH might not make it, either. I thought, ‘Jeez, it would be a crime if my grandparents’ show didn’t make it to the big 5oth anniversary.’  So I tuned in to check it out about a year and a half ago — just after (executive producer) Frank Valentini and (head writer) Ron Carlivati took over — and couldn’t believe it! With one episode I was hooked again and haven’t missed the show since. Frank and Ron have done a fantastic job.”

So what do you think about the stunt casting of Duncan Hursley! Check out his actor head shot from a few years back here in the post (Hursley is now 52)! Then weigh-in on what you think Mechanic Bill might provide in terms of vital information on the driver that caused the crash in Port Charles!

Interesting casting. I wonder how many ex-GHers from the golden days (other than Rachel Ames ) are still around. Would be cool to have some cameos.

Some are still around including the original Scott Baldwin played by Johnny Whitaker…i also seen Judith McConnel ex Augusta in a recent drug store commercial…there are several others but many are retired from show business…would like to see two former Heather Webbers before Robin M. make cameos with Robin in a scene at MisCaviage(spelling?) all claiming to be the real Heather Webber…that would be funny!!! i think…lol

Great idea! Delusional Heather could see all her former selves. Bring on Cher’s sister, the original!

Is Mechanic Bill another hint that Fluke is really Bill Eckart who could be responsible for the accident…wondering!!!

jimh, you really don’t now who it was?
RC told us, in his way, who it is..
… you’re suppose to know, RC wants you to now! 🙂

hint; it will greatly hurt Sam when she finds out what we know .. 🙁

Yes, its obvious Rafe was the driver in the other car but im thinking Fluke is responsible for Rafes drug problem and has gotten an unsuspecting Rafe to cause the accident…so this way Fluke is technically responsible for what happened and Rafe isnt!!!

It’s only for a cameo. They could have gotten a nobody extra but this is much cooler!

I think most all know who the hit and run drive was because RC wants us to know so we can watch Sam heading to whole lot of heartache..

it will be good to see Sam and Patrick together solving the mystery..
It is way more suspenseful when we know ‘who’ but the character doesn’t know 😉

I bet Sam will say “say hello to your parents Frank and Doris” or something like that. It was used once before for the 50th

Cool. Speaking of Patrick, I laughed my ass off last Thurs/Fri when he entered Sabrina’s apartment and she was wearing her wedding dress in her own little world. Poor Patrick had the most confused/puzzled look on his face—hilarious and vintage soap opera material.

GH’s Lisa LoCiero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  One thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
