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….)

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…

This week General Hospital viewers should be on the lookout for a heavenly visit, or vision of Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin), as her mother, Ava (Maura West) looks to finally make contact with the daughter she so desperately wants to make peace with from the great beyond!

And with that, Daytime Emmy-winner Hayley Erin will reprise her role and share scenes with her former on-screen mom, Maura West.

Erin exited GH in early 2019, when she joined the cast of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists on Freeform in which she currently plays the role of Taylor Hotchkiss.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Are you glad to know that there will be some heavy emotional payoff and scenes between GH’s Ava and her late daughter Kiki? Comment below.

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
