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!

Finally give Patrick a story hope it doesn’t end with one episode

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 .. 🙁

jimh(leave it to beaver)

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!!!

The last thing GH needs is another character.

It is a cameo/walk-on appearance, not a new character ..

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

he’s only a temp plus its a great way to honor the creators of the show with a short appearance by their grandson!!!

That’s a great way to honor the Hursleys!

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.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
