Jackie Zeman Set To Return To General Hospital! Why Do You Think Bobbie Will Be Back in Port Charles?

Fantastic news this past week for long time General Hospital fans.  ABC confirmed that fan favorite Jacklyn Zeman is on her way back to GH to reprise the role of Bobbie Spencer.  Viewers last saw Bobbie when she appeared on episodes surrounding the Nurses Ball in April of this year.

On Friday, Zeman tweeted: “Just received my scripts 4 Bobbie’s return to #GH. Riveting!!! @valentinifrank @carlivatiron Thank you, Thank you. Am excited, very happy.”

So what could be bringing Bobbie back into the fold in Port Charles?  For starters, we think it has to be to do with the fact that the Julian Jerome (William deVry) story is about to explode.  And remember, Bobbie is the adopted mother of Lucas Jones who is the bio-son of Julian Jerome and Cheryl Stansbury!   Is Lucas not far behind?  Lucas was recently contacted by Carly on behalf of Alexis Davis to get DNA evidence that he and Sam Morgan share the same biological father!

Fans have also been hoping another gay character might be on the canvas soon, and after all, Lucas is a doctor!  Or, are we completely off base …  and there is another reason Bobbie is back?  What are your thoughts on it? Whatever the case, its always great to welcome back Zeman!  Comment below!

What’s wrong with Luke? I still like him on Gh. And after all Luke and Bobbie are brother and sister and will want to see it other..

No, Luke is a very important character on GH, Barbara Jean isn’t ushering him off anywhere, he stays in PORT CHARLES.

Luke Spencer is an iconic soap opera character, and Tony Geary isn’t going anywhere.

great to see Jacke Zieman back, just sad to see that actors need to go the rought of plastic surgery, to the point that they don’t look authentic or real, I’m not opposed to tweeking things, but when too much is done….sorry you just look like your trying to recapture something that no one can, without looking like I don’t know what, but just not natural…..cuz the aging process is a natural thing, unfortunutly not in hollywood…. to bad for them, like I said i’m not a prude when it comes to making ones self look better, ie;refressed, but sadly… Read more »

Jackie. zeman is back baby. i hope they sign her to a contract. I missed bobbie spencer so much. now get rid of franco. and aj. we don’t need them. they put me to sleep.

I agree. Keep Jackie zeman around at least on a recurring basis. Gh as too many characters. But Ron n frank know how to integrate storyline n characters like no other.

I agree they need to get rid of Franco and aj!!!

totally disagree Lorenzo. Love Roger…and his take on Franco…while in my opinion written like Todd (OLTL) with just a name change works for me. As for Sean Kanan’s AJ…love him! Waited a long “soap” time for AJ to get some respect and love. So glad they’ve developed a relationship between him and Michael and I’m hoping they aren’t firing Kanan or discontinuing the AJ storyline. I’ve missed him!

SZima
Guest
SZima

I agree that Franco can go, and the sooner the better!
However, I really want AJ, who is a long-time legacy character, to stick around. I’m kinda worried though since it’s been weeks since AJ’s story has been dropped.

Engrady Pind
Guest
Engrady Pind

Same here. Franco is not needed at all one the show, even if he were totally redeemed and found to be Heather’s son. AJ on the other hand is a legacy character and welcome on the show. I just wish AJ’s reappearance didn’t usher in the same ole crap with Sonny and everyone treating AJ as though he were incapable of growth and change.

I don’t understand the Tony Geary bashing lately? The man has won 7 EMMYS and can act his way around anyone on the show!! Besides he has great chemistry with Jane Elliot. They should get a romance storyline; not Genie Francis and him! That ship has sailed folks, get over it!!

Becky
Guest

Couldn’t agree more Jeff. Love Luke, especially whenever he’s with Tracy. The return of Laura was a real snooze; hoping they’ll find something that works for her if/when she returns. Luke and Tracy forever! Wish that had found a different way to bring back Roger Howarth.

Tony has no romantic chemistry with Jane no matter how much he enjoys working with her. Yes they are funny in their little pranks, but no more so than Tony has been many, many times in scenes with Genie. Luke and Tracy haven’t done one thing that wasn’t done earlier by Luke and Laura, and as well if not better. They need to get both Genie and Tony back. Not saying they need to be reunited but they both need to be on this show. They’re the reason the show has even made it this long.

I love Luke, please leave him alone. As for Bobbie, glad she’s back but she does seem to over act sometimes and that plastic surgery she had , well not so good. Loved our old Bobbie.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Well, Pat, we certainly agree on JZ’s shortcomings….I find her very hard to watch for the reasons you listed!!! She falls into the category of those who belong in one-and-done episodes, in that would be more than enough to satisfy me….of course, Scotty, Lucy, and Doc are also in that group, and yet they remain lurking about! Then again, I was never an original Bobbie fan, and do not miss her presence. She is one of those “oldies” whose occasional visits definitely do not gladden my heart….there are still so many other vets who have yet to make a “50th… Read more »

Same with Monica… Leslie Charleson went to the plastic surgery well with her face maybe three too many times….

So glad Bobbie is back! Just hope she actually sticks around. Id love to see her be there for Morgan. I wish they would bring Grandpa Mike back for Morgan as well. I also wish people would leave AG alone. Just cause Gossip sites are saying he makes so much money & does not want a pay cut, does NOT make it true. Just look at all the vet actors leaving GH lately, that speaks volumes.

Agree about “Grandpa Mike,” unfortunately they’d have to recast since Ron Hale retired….

The rumor was just that a rumor TG will leave when he wants to as far as he and Genie my only problem with him has been disrespect in interviews I agree that the chemistry is gone and maybe Genie’s time has come and gone she has been off the canvas for a long time. Concerning he and Jane Elliott when you want to address the elephant in the room then go for it personally I could care less about either character I think the show does fine without either of them. They have simply been fillers or as I… Read more »

A possible Bobbie and Scott pairing, a return of Lucas Jones who will be in a love triangle with Felix and Brad, and involvement with the Jeromes, especially Julian, Lucas’s daddy…

Tori
Guest

I am glad to see Bobbie is back and everyone knows Carly need some serious guidance considering she is still attracted to dangerous men. I also think she will be there to protect Lucas from the Jerome family because enough people know who they are now so the secret is coming out soon. I heard a rumour that they have an actor whose name would be familiar to daytime audience. If the rumour is true there is no one I can think of that fit the role, people on other forums are hoping it’s Van but I do not think… Read more »

I hope tony geary gets fired on general hospital. he is getting old and looks old now. bring back alan quartermaine from the dead. that would be wonderful. tony geary had his spotlight. now we need more lucy coe robert scorpio anna devane and monica.

Guest

You don’t fire people because they’re getting old or “look old.” Jeez! First off…it’s just an insensitive, shallow thing to say. But on another note, some of the older actors are the ones who have been on our shows forever and sadly pass are much admired like the actors who played Edward and Lila Quatermaine. And fyi, “Alan Quatermaine” is almost ten years older than Luke/Tony Geary. And he looks it too…but still love him!

Love me some Bobbie Spencer! Would love to see her on canvas full time… with son Lucas. So sure it will happen. Makes sense if we are reviving Jeromes and giving them a prominent place on the storyboard. (Even though I am no fan of mob plots!)

And everyone stop the Luke Spencer bashing. GH needs that core actor and character.

Why is everyone downing Luke????? He is a very important part of GH, and how many Emmys has he won, NO LUKE has to stay, I for one will miss him terribly if he goes on one of his adventures and doesn’t come back.

I love Luke most when he is sharing scenes with Tracy, not when he is drunk or sick from poisoning. I love Luke as a legacy, comedic character. Tony Geary is amazing.

i’ll billboard once again. bringing back Bobbi…. will lighten the load… uplifting our hearts of ole. she would steer with ‘so’ many on the canvas… with luke with carly with Scotty with all the talent mac/felicia/anna/robert/duke/lucy/kevin WITH General Hospital AND, if her son comes back…. YAY! MORE Brad… and why not Felix as for Jackie Zeaman… The world who knows her… has neve abandoned her… and she owns a part of our Serial Writers…. give her witty snappy dialogue… upfront no holds barred script for the other cast to support… and not give her those long camera shots… her voice… Read more »

Am I the only one that remembers that Julian Jerome was really not supposed to be Lucas’s father – that it was originally supposed to be Robert Scorpio? TPTB at the time were building up to a big reveal, and then completely dropped the story, saying instead that it was Julian. This would have been fine, except that Cheryl was not involved with Julian at all at the time.

Tori
Guest
Tori

I do not remember but if it comes up most likely they will say Cheryl may been with Julian once in secret because that is all it would take. I am guessing they will stick to Lucas being part of the Jerome bloodline because there is more drama from that story for the audience.

WHY, He has a major role in GH, Whether you like him or not he has a family in Port Charles and that is what is important family, Barbara Jean is coming back, He has LULU and LUCKY and ETHAN , And I like him with Tracy they are cute together the way they go back and forth with insults, NO Unless the rumors are true and he is pissed off about a pay cut, money changes everything, Luke has to STAY RIGHT WHERE HE IS .

Great to have Bobbie back. She always brings heart to the show. Lucas should have been robert’s all along. But now I don’t care. When they made the character gay it kind of ruined things. No offense meant and no need for gays to get all agitated and attack me. I don’t like many types of stories…I don’t like mob stories, I am not insulting mobsters. I don’t like rape stories. I don’t like gay stories. Just my preference. I am not intolerant or close minded lol I just don’t like gay stories on soaps, that’s all. Welcome back Jackie… Read more »

Of course they are gay! That’s why it is so easy for them to bring true accurate portrayals of gay men like Brad and Felix.

I just hope that we don’t see her as randomly as we do our other veterans: We see Scotty maybe once every couple of weeks, along with Lucy, Laura is off canvas, etc. As much as I love having the vets return, it’s sad when I forget that they have returned. Then all of the sudden they are on-screen as fillers on a Wednesday episode. (This past week with Scotty outside of Kelly’s, running into Heather. I loved their scenes; but, I forgot all about Scotty returning to Port Charles)! On another note, I would have loved to have seen… Read more »

I watched Bobbi Spencer for years and found her entertaining. Then, once Carly came and destroyed the Jones’ marriage I have found Zeeman’s delivery of lines to be patronizing to the point of grating on the ears. Bobbi talks to other characters as though they were 2 year olds.

Johnny
Guest
Johnny

Probably because most of the people in her immediate orbit act like it. How would you talk to a daughter like Carly?? “Sweetie,..see…this is why we don’t sleep around…bad things happen when we are promiscuous…do you undersgabd?”. Lol. It is partially the writing and partially the poor woman’s face has been pulled and stretched tighter than a bongo drum. Her lips don’t even touch anymore…so delivery of lines can come off as over enunciation or over acting but its actually just her being valiant at being able to say the lines.

I’m not picking on her, but I saw her recently on an interview and she was almost unrecognizable ~ if she’s returning to General Hospital, I hope it’s not to have
any cosmetic procedures done. I am not faulting an actress (or anyone) for holding
onto youth as long as possible, but some of them start to get that real paralized frozen face look, as if they were stuck in a freezer for a month.

I was just watching Some Stefan and Bobbie scenes on YouTube last night. Boy I have to say that the chemistry was through the roof between them! Shame they broke them up just because they wanted to pair Stefan with Katherine. Best wishes Jackie. 🙂

I would say no time soon! I would have liked a storyline for her but I guess we have decided to do the Scotty is Franco’ father bit. I am not shocked however poor Genie can’t catch a break when you have actors on the set that do not want her back. I think Bobbie’s whole reason for being back is to prop up the character of Carly who I am sooooo over!

Bring her back and give her something to work with–like dialogue that is not contrary to her well-established character.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.
