Holly Gagnier Takes Over The Role of Jennifer Smith On General Hospital!

Courtesy/GagnierFacebook

Those rumors proved once again true as over the weekend General Hospital fans were investigating former One Life to Live and Days of our Lives actress Holly Gagnier’s facebook page, and if you look closely it said on the May 27th post “Big announcement coming soon”.   Today, GH viewers learned that Holly is the next actress to play the role of Jennifer Smith!

Gagnier has even posted a picture with herself and GH icons Tony Geary (Luke) and Genie Francis  (Laura) whom she shares scenes with this week, as she takes over the role of crime boss Frank Smith’s daughter, Jennifer Smith on the ABC soap opera.  Gagnier plays the role once taken on by Lisa Marie, Roseanne Barr, and Sally Struthers … quite the predecessors!

Holly told Soap Opera Digest on her turn as Jennifer Smith: “I really had probably the most fun I’ve ever had on a soap!”

Daytime fans remember Gagnier as Cassie Callison on One Life to Live and Ivy Jannings on Days of our Lives!

What do you think about Holly as the new Jennifer Smith?  Were you surprised to see her on GH?  Comment below!

She is a good actress…far better than overrated Michelle Stafford…she maybe older but id love her to stay and get involved with Nik…what would Laura think?…I remember her on Days and she is hotter now than way back then…i no longer need my manhood pills…lol

Great choice. I like her and she looks awfully young for her age.

Ivy was the other woman. Pete and Melissa were the couple. Ivy was the sister of Speed. Speed was Pete’s best friend and fellow gang member. Ivy referred to Pete as P.J. When Melissa was hiding out for dealing (she was hired by Pete’s sister Tess’ ex convict husband to deliver flowers, which contained dope in the flower pots, unbeknownst to Melissa) she stayed with Ivy and Ivy would always talk about PJ!!!

It was indeed jolting to see the character of Jennifer Smith. However, we all know that Roseanne Barr and Sally Struthers were instances of stunt casting, and their appearances were brief. If the original Jennifer Smith (Lisa Marie) were available and interested, she should have been the first choice. Recasting the role for a another brief visit seems silly.

OK, I googled “Jonathan Penner” and “One Life to Live” and got no results. I DID however discover that JP is a cousin of Jason Alexander and played a part in a classic Seinfeld scene (Kramer is pulling a rickshaw containing Newman and Lets it go, it rolls downhill and hits a man crossing the street- JP). Totally off-topic but I just felt like sharing. So sue me.

I swore he was on the show….I was an extra on his movie Religion Inc. back in 1989. He was a jerk on the set as well. BUT, I was invited to the cast party and they were there together and I could have sworn he was somehow involved in the Fraternity Row storyline….I could be wrong 🙂

This was a great reveal! I already love Holly Gagnier in the role, and bringing Jennifer Smith into the fold of this story was a great use of history. GH seems to be using its history really well in story over the past few years. She actually reminded me a lot of Claudia between her appearance, the way she was talking and her manipulation. I’m really looking forward to seeing this story play out and the next twist coming! The next reveal I’m waiting for is that Nikolas’s true intentions for taking over ELQ is to hand over the company… Read more »

Roseanne Barr and Sally Struthers were used as stunt casting and really one has to dismiss their their cameo appearances which enjoyed a very fleeting duration.

I emphatically DO NOT LOVE RC and I care greatly about Genie Francis and the character and legacy of Laura. I loved Luke and the shades that Tony Geary gave the character in the heyday of the and Laura saga. I couldn’t wait to see what Genie Francis and Tony Geary were going to do next with the two characters–as well as the writers in those days. RC has systematically destroyed the characters of both Luke and Laura–with help from Guza.

Michael (not Fairman)

It’s been a while, Mark, but–when Luke met Laura (basically when he was first in town), he was involved with the mob, and he ended up engaged to the daughter (Jennifer Smith) of the mob boss (Frank Smith) even though he clearly was in love with Laura. Luke and Laura ended up on the run, in that original on-the-run storyline, partly because he couldn’t go through with his wedding to Jennifer. I don’t remember much more about her; she was always (to me, at least) rather a peripheral character, and I think she disappeared pretty quickly after she served her… Read more »

Yes, Holly G. is definitely more along the lines of the original Jennifer Smith. I believe she watched old footage of the original actress too. She is speaking in the same high pitch and has the ditzy airhead characteristic down. Roseanne was brought on in an ABC cross promotion in the early/mid 90’s. LnL appeared on Roseanne’s show and vice versa. Roseanne’s GH episodes includeded Tom Arnold as Jennifer’s sleazy husband and those episodes were campy. LnL got into Jennifer’s safe and obtained incriminating evidence against them to keep Frank off of their backs for a short while. I have… Read more »

Great casting choice, so far… though, she;s a bit younger than her predecessors, however, I enjoyed Holly as Jennifer Smith.
It would be great if she were offered the chance to return to Days Of Our Lives as a new character, she would make a great DiMera… Chad’s mom returns from the dead!!!

Beth
Guest
Beth

Actually she is 57 and perfect age for Jennifer Smith. The original Jennifer Smith was attractive. It was a big joke when the character returned in the 90s as Roseanne. During that particular storyline, Laura was feeling a little insecure about Luke being near Jennifer again because of how attractive she was in 1980…but then they learned she had let herself go and had ended up with a sleazy husband. It appears the character hadn’t changed too much by the time 2002 rolled around and they cast Sally Struthers. In 2015 they have brought the character full circle.

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE! I know Roseann is ill and probably wouldnt have accepted the role but why not Sally Struthers? I’m sure she was available OR why not cast someone like Catherine Zeta Jones who hasnt been in anything in a while and get some publicity for GH. Remember how cool it was to have Liz Taylor as Helena. This to me is lazy and cheap on GH’s part! Please, this is not a knock on this actress. She seems capable BUT I expected a big pop and all I saw was a big flop!

Harry
Guest

Timm, Sally Struthers and Roseanne Barr were puzzling cases of stunt casting and they bore no semblance to the original Jenifer Smith.
I like this actress–she works for me.
What I don’t like is the idea that she went to all this trouble for a role in the hay with Luke. I hope there is more to her motive than that.

Harry, I can’t help but think that Jennifer is married to some wheeler-dealer who can’t get her pregnant and she needs a baby to inherit big time from her husband’s family…or she lied to her husband and said she was pregnant to get him to merry her. If I’m right, this story will remind me of way back on ANOTHER WORLD when Cecile tired to get Cass to impregnate her so she could give her husband, the king, an heir to the throne. LOL!

Hi, Timmm. As I said above to su, …Roseanne Barr?? The comedic spin would have worked for me, also, especially when Jennifer made that not-so-suttle pass at Luke. It would have really thrown me over the edge if it had been Sally Struthers. The ridiculousness and humor of the situation was lost, not captured by Holly’s characterization of Ms Smith. She is just too perfect looking to have made the same comedic impact. The same would have applied to Catherine. I did appreciate the jocular looks Luke and Laura exchanged when Jennifer propositioned Luke. I did see a hint of… Read more »

If this character goes back to early Luke and Laura days and Frank Smith– shouldn’t she be older???? I mean Tony and Genie look ancient next to her— if Holly G is the same age as them- then damn she aged well, but if not, they should have cast an actress who would pass more as contemporary of Luke and Laura. I find so hard to believe this beautiful young looking woman is so hot for Luke she would have kidnapped his son so she could sleep with him? Frankly, she looks more Luke’s daughter than an old flame. Then… Read more »

Holly G. is actually three years older (56) than Genie Francis (53). Furthermore, Robin Christopher (Skye) is actually younger (50) and Luke was with her, same with Kristina Wagner (51) who plays Felicia.

Holly is a few years older than Genie, it’s just some plastic surgery and too much make-up. I think she looks awful, but I guess it fits the character since her last appearances were played by huge character actresses in total camp (although watching Holly chew the scenery in the same campy way is painful). I’m disappointed with this story twist. Had it not been done twice before already (and better), and the character was being written more like her original characterization (which I guess would have been impossible after Roseanne and Struthers), an appearance by Jennifer Smith would have… Read more »

Nothing against the actress–but a more believable story line would have been if Jennifer had requested one night with Laura! Sad, just sad what the writers are doing to the legacy of Luke and Laura–and Genie just standing there looking so beautiful and pained. And, I’m guessing, gritting her teeth. So Tony Geary is all right with TPTB suggesting a night with Jennifer Smith and not with Laura, the woman who, in Luke’s own words, kept him whole with her love for lo so many years? Where is his brain(don’t answer that!0–and, most importantly, where are the brains of TPTB?????… Read more »

I think you’re reading too much into this. She didn’t need his permission, she just wanted to know if he was interested in her returning for his exit. It’s HIS exit storyline, and she was willing to be a part of it if he wanted her to be, and not otherwise. And they are playing the storyline the way it is written for them. The characters aren’t in love anymore, and they are in a forced situation. There is nostalgia, but their focus is on Lucky.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
