Hot Rumor: Was Tyler Christopher let-go at GH?

Looks like more heads are rolling over at General Hospital.  This time it is being reported by Soap Opera Digest’s twitter page that on Friday, GH’s Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine) was given his pink slip by the series.

The tweet stated, “An insider reports that GH’s Tyler Christopher was let go on Friday.” If this statement does prove to be true it wouldn’t come as much of a surprise, since Tyler is set to be one of the stars in the new Chuck Pratt ABC Family primetime series, The Lying Game.

So does this mean Tyler will remain on-air while the true parentage of baby Aiden comes to light, and all the twists and turns play out?

Stay tuned on Monday for more on this developing story!

GH is my favorite show but I feel the writing lately “could” have such potential..good ideas but no follow through or remembering how smart the fans are. We watch these shows every day. They keep getting rid of or using less of the characters we love while bringing in characters we dont care about . Go back to the years where GH won emmy after emmy..those stories worked. The Jake storyline is a redo..but Joss was not sick for a while she “suddenly” is ill..where are the grandparents?The shows timeline made no sense. Tyler could be used for this story… Read more »

I agree absolutely. Why let Tyler Christopher go when Nikolas is a strong character, and keep Lisa, Terrell, and similar extraneous characters, when the vets are being seen maybe once a week at best. If the characters are mob, or mob-related we see them daily. If not, some of our most loved and favorites like Nikolas, Jax, get a few minutes here and there once or, if we’re lucky, twice a week. Wake Up ABC/Disney, give us some BALANCED writing and stop letting veteran GHers go.

Why aren’t other actors on GH speaking on Tyler’s behalf like they did for Becky. It’s very disappointing

After being on GH for so long, I would hope the other actors would speak out for Tyler. I don’t understand ABC’ s reasoning for letting go essential charactersl like Nikolas and keeping less important ones.

I heard Kelly Monaco tweeted asking fans to write in and help save Tyler Christopher’s job.. Thanks Kelly, we are. GH needs Tyler Christopher/Nikolas Cassadine. He’s a talented actor and given the right story, or just a story for heaven’s sake, he works his magic. What the heck is ABC thinking? Budget cuts, do weeding elsewhere in the cast, keep our vets like Tyler.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. 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. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.
