I love new people, especially when they are involved with the star characters,, I like the mystery of new stories that come along with new people.
It gives the vets/stars new material/stories and it keeps everything fresh..
new characters keep the stars from becoming slate by bringing new stories!

I wonder if it is short term or contracted character, whichever it will bring a good story!!

I hope he’s part of the Jerome mob and gets Franco mixed in with it…also i hope Kiki really turns out to be Francos daughter or maybe Sabrina or Ellie…i dont mind newbies as long as they have vet connections…

I don’t mind “newbies” as long as they have the talent, charisma and proper character development to advance the show….think Britt, her mad “mutter,” etc…however, when they lack said criteria, they drag down the entire program. Need I mention the name of the foremost example from this past year? (Okay, you’ve talked me into it: SABRINA! Complete, utter failure!) Having said that, I always enjoy the addition of foreign actors….they bring such an international flair and sophistication to the canvas! This is one of GH’s trademark qualities dating back to their 80’s heyday……

Good comment, Shay! I am not sure Sabrina is an utter failure, but I do wonder what is left for her now that she had her “Ugly Betty” transformation and it looks as Patrick will eventually reunite with Robin. If Sabrina has a connection, we would enjoy scenes with those friends from former lives — was she a childhood friend of Elizabeth? a college pal of Lucas’s? heck, a former student of Tommy Baldwin’s — and it would give her a lifeline for future stories. Now, I read somewhere — here? — a character from her history is coming, but again, I like some connection to the core and legacy characters.

I think Sabrina wouldve worked better without the transformation, and attracted to Micheal instead of Patrick…but ill take Britt and her Mutter any way they write them!!!

You’d know Connery had the chops if they’d introduced him by some of his past acting/directing/theater experience instead of by — who cares? — his father. Here’s a fan who thinks he’s gonna be just what they need!

@jimh….I’m really hard pressed to think who would be a credible match for “Sowbrina”….she’s such a problem character, sticking out like a sore thumb!!! I think she was just so poorly defined from the get-go, and then the person they chose to play her was not up the acting task, either….the entire package was simply one big mess! Today demonstrated it again…the nursemaiden was absolutely dreadful with Patrick, the two of them together were like “cover your eyes YUCK!,” then she was playing “Mommy” with Emma, and finally that obnoxious child had a valid point….she told Sappy that she wanted her (real) mother, not this poor replacement for Robin. (Great foreshadowing on KM’s return….gave me chills!) Finally, “Back to (Ugly) Betty For A Day” met up with her “mystery man,” and by the looks of his greeting, he is NOT a bro or relative….must be Mr. “Lots and Lots of Sex” that the babysitter boasted about to Drake Jr…..although I have to say, on first impressions, this guy appears even older than the doctor, so the age inequality thing is still going to be an issue. Quite frankly, the entire deal has become such a huge trainwreck, they need to finally write off this useless, unimportant character and move on…she has surpassed her expiration date! Plus, she’s really not worth the bother, and never has been….it sort of beggars belief that the ptb’s have expended so much time and effort on her, and to what end???? The best of the show’s recent moments have not revolved around her, despite the producers’ overwhelming efforts to make it otherwise….Lastly, what did Michael do to make him deserve being saddled with Sappy???? LOL….I am not a big fan of CD, but give the poor guy a break! He’s so Kiki lovesick that his sad sack act is rapidly getting to the point of pathetic, hence they pulled Penny (The One-Night Stand) out of storage for him….another bad idea!!!!! (Yes, today’s episode had many lows, including the “brat pack” and their silly crush games, not to mention Ava making “Mrs. Robinson” eyes at Morgan…and saying “he owed her!!!” Hmmmm….)

jimh(leave it to beaver)

I wouldve paired Sab with Mike who always looked bored anyway…lol…i also noticed Sabrina had a backwards transformation in todays episode with her hair tied back and wearing glasses again…and maybe Sabrina has a much older man fetish and isnt the saint she is currently written to be…i kinda liked her in the beginning but now im completely bored with her…not the actress fault…she might be more interesting as another character on a different soap or series…

GH’s Maurice Benard Launches ‘State of Mind’ Website

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.  Watch it below.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.
