Is another Spencer about to fly the GH coop? Nathan Parsons uncertain of future!

Hot on the heels of Jonathan Jackson’s announcement that he is exiting GH as Lucky Spencer comes word today out of ABC Soaps In Depth that Nathan Parsons ( Ethan Lovett) another Spencer offspring may not stay with the series when his contract is up in 2012! This seems particularily disappointing as it seems that Nathan is finally being given his own storyline!

Nathan also informed TV Guide in their latest issue that he is not sure what his plans are! “The timing’s not the best, I guess we’ll have to sit down and talk,” said the talented young actor.

Will Ethan’s mysterious, new romance with Wyndemere’s woman in white be enough to convince him to stay?  Well, according to SID, “While a rep for the show had no comment, co-stars whisper that the actor hasn’t had a story since day one, and this could be a case of too little, too late.”

No Tyler, No JJ, and now maybe no Nathan? 2012 is certainly not looking good for the future of GH surviving 🙁

This is decidedly depressing news.
I love Nathan as Ethan.
I hate the fact that they bailed on a Nathan/Kristina pairing.
And now he may leave ??
This young man is a very good actor and deserving of a great storyline.

My last hope is that Lexi returns briefly as Kristina and finally gets paired up with Nathan’s Ethan in New Haven.

Again Nathan is a fine actor but I never cared for his character Ethan and that hasn’t changed. Whether Nathan leaves or not is his decision honestly I don’t care if he stays or goes. The show is being canceled next year some people still just don’t want to accept that but the writing is on the wall for GH and it has been for a long time .

sun 45 just shut up already w/ the cancellation thing, who are you any way? CNN? as for nathan leaving, i hope he stays, l really dig the actor and character. GH needs to get its act together really soon, this show has so much going for it, great actors, great history, all it needs is a real leader, like the legendary Gloria Monty. honestly i don’t think Jill farren Phelps has what it takes, and so far new headwriter Garin Wolf is not doing any better(maybe slightly) than Bob Guza. thats the sad part, because this show pretty much… Read more »

I’m still so irate about Kristina that I could spit – I thought maybe with Guza gone they’d be smarter……now they’re losing JJ, possibly Nathan now, the whole venue seems to be unraveling……very bad and sad……….and caused by the execs in charge and the network.

I have loved every minute of Nathan’s time on GH and would absolutely hate to see him leave. He is the light and life of the Spencer’s right now and they desperately need it – so does GH quite frankly.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
