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.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
