Very nice retrospective from Ms Cooper, such a wonderful actor she is.
I was hoping to see some really early clips of Katherine & Jill with the original Jill, Brenda Dickson. But I don’t imagine that will ever come from CBS or Y&R considering all the issues concerning Ms Dickson.
I loved the Foster and Brooks families and the early days of Y&R. What is being presented as Y& R now is a shadow of what it has been over the last 40 years. This new team of writers and producers are turning out a really boring, unexciting and dreadful show. I can’t make it thru an episode without turning it off. It lacks any of the style and flare that Y&R became known for. To bad they are bringing all those wonderful actors down with them. Just my opinion!

That has to be one of their best spotlights so far!!! Jeanne is an icon and a very talented lady! She is so fabulous and I hope she can stay on for many more years!!! Love her!

I wish there was some way they could bring back Katherines late husband Philip whom Jill had an affair with, and see how this would be played out between the two women. Also i wanted Esther to turn out to be Katherines daughter…neither one knew this, and were under each others noses all this time. Wonder what Jill would think?

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.
