Jen Ray On Making Her GH Debut As Chelsea: “I Can’t Thank Everyone In Port Charles For Helping A Little Girl Dreaming Of Being On Her ‘Story’ Actually Come True!”

There are more psychic powers heading into Port Charles, and this psychic could be carrying an important message for Franco (Roger Howarth).

General Hospital viewers will soon see former sitcom star, Jen Ray (she played neighbor Nancy Donahue most recently on The Middle) in her first daytime drama role as Chelsea Lambas.

On recent episodes of GH, viewers also saw another psychic hit town, Sibley Gamble (Veronica Cartwright), who Ava (Maura West) enlisted so that she could reconnect her with her deceased daughter, Kiki, and we all saw how Gamble’s skill rated.

Ray was originally slated to first appear on the Friday, July 26th episode of the ABC soap, prior to yesterday’s national preemption of the series for the Muller testimony.  ABC executive Nathan Varni, took to Twitter to welcome Jen to GH and to tease: “What does Chelsea see in Franc0’s future?”

But no one was more excited about Jen joining the cast of General Hospital, then Ray herself, when she posted on her Instagram her true love for this iconic soap!  The actress enthused: “I cannot thank everyone in Port Charles for helping a little girl dreaming of being on her ‘story’ actually come true! And a special thank you to Nathan Varni, Frank Valentini, and Mark Teschner! Aw… so fun!”

Jen had also appeared on numerous primetime series including: Big Love, True Blood, The New Normal, Gilmore Girls, and more.

What message do you think Chelsea will bring to Franco, that could kick-off a new story for him?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I’m so happy for her, as a gh fan I know I would loose my mind if I got a chance to visit Port Charles.

Getting bored with GH…once the Nell/Micheal baby story wraps i mightbe done…the show feels like the writers just write as they go along with nothing really plan ahead…still watching Days for now…Nell will most likely escapes and kills Shiloh with someone else blamed for the crime!

I like the Scorpios working together. Like Lulu’s new BF. Didnt care for DULLte! If Heather can come and go, so can Nell. I like your theory that she will kill Shiloh and pin it on someone else.

Hi, Jimmy…
Long time, my friend. I’m with you—boring with a big, fat B. Plus, this flirtation with the netherworld is so passe’ and stale….as much as baby switching.
I think the Wiley/Jonah story is climaxing. Now that Nell knows what’s going down with Shiloh, she will try her mightiest to protect her baby. Will she tell Michael? Will he believe her? Here we go again with DNA tests up and down the East coast—more switcheroos?
PS….Big OOPS —especially; not expecially—shiver-me-timbers—stupid typos….Stay well, Jimmy.❤️

Never heard of her. Never watched “The Middle”. Of all the topics in the world a writer can introduce, we are dealt the psychic card? No, thank you. I hope these Lalaland penners are responsible enough to show the lighter side of the supernatural. Some people believe in this stuff—-we would not want to see someone mimicking Sibley in reality…..expecially those who are not all ‘there’—- Getting a bit ridiculously mundane—locks on fake bridges–Sonny, the powerful, helpless in finishing Shiloh off–Dante overpowering a guard—etc. Oh, wait….is Scorpio a lawyer? And, how is a lawman soooo chummy with a lawless mafioso?… Read more »

Robert Scorpio having a law degree and being suddenly able to become the DA of Port Charles is a recent rewrite which has absolutely no connection to any of the character’s established history going back to the Ice Princess days.

His ability to work with Sonny is well within character though. Not that Robert is a big fan of the mob obviously, but Robert & Sonny have several people in common (Robin, Luke, and Dante, for example) and they both have a long standing hatred of the Jerome family. So that’s enough to bond over, right?

My dear Celia. I miss you! Jen Ray had a bit part on “The Middle.” She was good. I see her playing the same character. Kind of quirky and overwhelming but means well. TV Psychics were real popular in the 80’s. I think this new character will be in PC just to introduce a new story for Franco. I hope its tongue in cheek like these psychics and palm readers should be taken. As far as Robert being a lawyer, yeah, it came out of nowhere BUT he has been off screen, on and off for years, so I could… Read more »

@Timmm….When you consider how much wacky revisionist history about our beloved GH characters has already been conjured out of thin air by recent regimes, giving Robert a JD is hardly earth shattering! It’s certainly not unheard of for cops/government agents to go on to law school, especially after their “action days” have been exhausted! Quite frankly, having DA Scorpio at the helm in Port Charles can only enhance the law profession’s sorry local reputation with legal hacks like Scottie and Alexis operating in their courtrooms. Plus, it’s sooo nice to have Robert back in town for more than five minutes… Read more »

Shay, nice to hear from you! Yes, Robert is in a position now to be relevant and have some type of grip on the wacky hooligans in PC! Dont you love the way he says Dante’s name? On Thursdays episode Sonny ask about his son and Robert called him DANte using his everlasting, delicious Australian accent!

It’s so nice to be heard by you and be the recipient of your lovely reply, too, Timmm! I’ve missed our “conversations,” my friend! And I LOVE the way Scorpio says everything in that sexy Aussie accent of his! (Not to mention his deliciously sarcastic manner of expressing his opinion, always with a naughty glint in those sparkling blue eyes! Lol…) No matter in what future situations GH places the man, I am looking forward to more of his inimitable charm and cheek to save the day! By the way, here’s a possible scenario with highly comedic overtones: I know… Read more »

Shayster, I did enjoy Lisel’s dip in the PC harbor. I can take her in small doses. My problem with her and Robert is that she held his daughter captive and NOTHING could change how I feel about someone who would do that. But its a soap, we love drama! Robert and Lisel would have some amazing scenes together. Robert needs a new love. Who would you suggest? Olivia? I know her and Ned are together but he is not on much. Liv is a pain in the A.. BUT I can see her street wise wit and Robert’s mega… Read more »

And Dr. O. also put Robert in a coma for over a year! Can’t forget that nagging little detail, Timmm! What I was suggesting was a psychotically one-sided attraction for Liesl to develop for Scorpio, sort of like the one she long harbored toward Faison, but with a total lack of reciprocal action from Robert…in no way, shape or form would it be a mutual thing! Scorpio ain’t insane!…LOL. Perhaps he could also be initially oblivious to her deeply-concealed affections….as she makes her amorous moves in the form of a “secret admirer???” Given we’re talking about Obrecht here, possibilities for… Read more »

Hey, Shaybelle,
I’m glad to see that the moniker, Timmmbo, with which I baptized Timmm, is still in use after five years.

Keep on writing, guys….truly enjoying your exchanges!!

Oh, yes, you did coin that affectionate nickname, CeeCeeGirl! (Credit given where credit is due!) I also added the title “Sir” to your fond moniker for special occasions, since Timmm is such a gallant gentleman to the ladies! By the way, speaking of that all-too-rare form of male species, I’m glad that you have finally experienced the pleasure of the real Robert Scorpio…those of us who knew him from the very beginning were always susceptible to his obvious myriad charms!

I am not familiar with Robert’s and Anna’s interaction as lovers—just as friends now– however, I do sense that tacit, under the surface tension. I would welcome a lovers’ reunion and its exploration between the two. I thought, from the very beginning, that Kevin and Laura did not mesh for me. Don’t get me wrong—-Genie/ Laura is one of my faves—love her—I wish she would come back to Y&R as Genevieve, where she had, indeed, been married to Colin ( Tristan), the scalawag. Not a good match. Kevin is soooo sexy!! As beautiful as Laura is; she does not have… Read more »

@CeeCee….To the best of my recollection, there is a magnificently romantic beach scene with Anna and Robert to the strains of “All In Love Is Fair.” It happened a long time ago, but was one of those all-time great moments from GH past. If you can locate it online, do take a gander….it’s memorable, to say the least! As for Laura??? No matter how much trauma and tribulation she has suffered, she remains Port Charles’ sweetheart, their Doris Day, so to speak….forever wholesome with a smile that lights up a room…which makes her eminently appealing, but in no way overtly… Read more »

Hi, Timmmy, WOW!! Soooo good to “see” you here…yeah—I miss you, too….oh, them good ole days!!

HaHa… So, as you can imagine, my brothers never miss an opportunity to spook me—to this day… I think you’re right—I suppose the PTB have exhausted A to Z explaining Franco’s presence at this point.

I agree, T–Dev is a heartbreaker; and, only sixteen.
I like that idea—Dev’s parentage…..would make for a surprisingly searing plot—great irony, if that should happen to be the case!! Kisses❤️

Shay
Guest
Shay

Easy peasy, CeeCeeGirl! Dev is the WSB’s latest asset protege’ via Dante…either that, or he’s yet another Cassadine plant…remember, Helena had her own “nursery school” on the island. That woman gave a whole new meaning to the term “education!!!” Okay, just kidding…well, maybe! He could also have a link to Jax (and of course, brother Jerry!!!) That would seem more plausible given that Dev’s presence is currently Sonny-centric.

Celia

Sounds good, Shaybelle—as usual, your ideas, amongst many others ( our fellow posters, thst is), are en pointe. ….But, but….I hope not!! I want Dev to be one of the good guys. I like him!! He looks so much like Jude’s nephew–uncanny!!
I like Timmm’s proposition–Sonny’s and Brenda’s ( looked her up) son—-however, without a criminally charged brain. We shall see—I welcome any relevant, intriguing and INTELLIGENT plot.

But do we REALLY need yet another Sonny-spawned addition to Port Charles, CeeCeeGirl??? (Rhetorical question….) I’m still waiting for the lady lawyer from Dimples’ one-night stand on “The Bad Ship LuLuPop” to show up with his umpteenth illegitimate issue in tow….

Here’s my theory on Dev…. Obviously he’s related to somebody in Port Charles. Because when was the last time a newbie showed up who wasn’t related to somebody?? (Yeah Sasha’s relation to Nina was fake, but that don’t mean her real family ties won’t be revealed eventually) Turkey is more or less in the same region of the planet as Afghanistan. A few countries in between, but it’s entirely possible that a Navy SEAL like Drew or a mercenary dirtbag like Hank “Shiloh” Archer might have spent some recreational time in Turkey. Dev is the appropriate age to have been… Read more »

Sonny is very potent! lol he is the seeding dude..

Dev, hmm, don’t think he’s Sonny’s-
Sometime a cigar is just a cigar.

Sonny needs to have a son(s)and Dev seems more like Sonny than Michael..
aha Sonny got himself a little me.

Shay

Absolutely, Su! Sonny is indeed GH’s resident Energizer Bunny of Procreation! I cannot imagine he will ever run out of “seeds” to repopulate the soap …he’s the Port Charles version of Victor Newman, who himself just keeps “going and going” much to the delight(?)—or is it chagrin?-of many a Y&R femme. I guess every soap needs one….Lol.

Hmmmm….Lost seed–blown in the wind? Amazingly, Sonny’s miniature “anatomy” still holds life—-pardon the pun. We, younger women, should all be that lucky in thirty years!!

Afghanistan is a Eurasian country….not in the same region as Turkey which is closer to Greece and Italy than it is to Afghanistan.
There is the possibility that Oscar and Dev are half brothers.
The flash-drive holds the secret.
Yet, I have a case of ennui when it comes to Shiloh—-stupid cat-and-mouse game without substance. He should be castrated and then pulverized, with your blessings, of course…..or should I say, curses?

Shay
Guest
Shay

I still have my doubts that Oscar was Kim’s real son, CeeCee….she’s shown herself to be a total nutter with her latest Drew stunt, so who knows how she came to be in possession of his baby??? Of course, this is another nagging little detail that will probably never be properly examined…particularly if Dr. Zero gets her walking papers any time in the near future following Billy Miller’s exit from the GH canvas…

Hey, again, Shay. I am all alone today–relaxing in my T and Nike-shorties–What freedom!! The clan is off to Yankee Stadium!! Anyway….I remember discussing this very topic with Violet, Shay—-we had both read somewhere that Oscar was not Kim’s child. Then, nothing… She could have tampered with his DNA sample.kit, which soaps are wont to do. I do believe Tamara is departing. How did you guys endure her as Carly? At least Laura Wright is plausibe as Carly, if not endearing. Julian? Methinks , ’tis time for him to go, as well……he is also a filler. But, Shay, I’m sorry… Read more »

#TeamRattlesnake…Good one, DMRR! If anyone could rid Port Charles of Pete, it should be Liesl!!! As the so-called product of her former, unrequited love obsession’s loins and his (purported babymama and Obrecht arch-enemy) Anna’s womb, that guy shouldn’t have lasted two minutes in Dr. O’s presence….it makes no sense that she continues to takes his very existence in stride.

I think he will die. Maybe by Lisel. But when Anna goes after Lisel to kill her and finally get revenge, Alex will appear and admit that Peter was HER son!

Shay

If only, Timmm! It’s time for Liesl to again rev up her longstanding need for revengeance over Faison, Anna and Pete! Whilst I certainly don’t wish for the Divine Devane to come to any harm, it would create great drama if Alex were to make a well-timed appearance in order to save her sister’s life by finally revealing the truth that she is the real mother of Faison’s b@$+ard son! When Liesl then redirects her rage towards Alex, she instead kills Peter in the process!!! Alrighty then…works for me!

I am fond of neither Finn nor Nikolas, yet H and N breathed life into soap-lovemaking. I truly believe that the main reason she is back is to find the right time to introduce Finn to his child.

Then, there’s Lulu—She should have divorced him at time he strayed with Valerie–is it just moi? I feel nothing!! Not connecting eith her, Shaybelle. Evoking no pathos.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.

GH’s Kin Shriner Talks on Franco’s Demise, Scott’s Budding Romance with Obrecht, and His Enduring On-Screen Partnership with Genie Francis

One of the most beloved actors in the history of General Hospital, Kin Shriner, currently finds his alter-ego, Scott Baldwin, in a new budding on-screen romance with none other than Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati).

This comes on the heels of Scott learning the devastating news that his son, Franco Baldwin was shot and killed, thus writing-off the ABC daytime drama series, for now, popular actor, Roger Howarth.

Photo: JPI

Throughout his now almost 44-year-run on the ABC daytime drama series, Kin Shriner has brought his unique acting chops that helped mold the character of legal eagle Scott Baldwin into the humorous, at times cutthroat, endearing and many times heartbreaking character we have all come to love.’

 

In a brand new exclusive virtual sit-down interview with Michael Fairman on You Tube’s The Michael Fairman Channel, Shriner opens up about his history with GH and the times he stepped away to take on roles on Texas and As the World Turns, and then back again to the town of Port Charles and GH.

Photo: ABC

As well, Kin reveals his reaction to learning the news that Roger Howarth would be exiting the show as his TV son and how he shot the key emotional scene where Laura (Genie Francis) tells Scott that Franco had died.  Shriner shares that he does not see how when Howarth returns to the show in as a yet-to-be-revealed character, that it would be a stretch if the two were some how related, but that he will miss working with the talented Howarth as a scene-partner.

Photo: JPI

As to the women in Scott’s life, Kin addresses each of them from: Lucy (Lynn Herring), Bobbie (Jackie Zeman), Dominque (Shell Danielson), Laura (Francis), Ava (Maura West) – to which the character could never get that close to – and now Liesl (Gati), and working opposite all the powerhouse actresses who portray them.

Photo: ABC

For fans of General Hospital who have watched the series for decades, Kin also shares memories of working with his late TV parents, Peter Hansen (Lee), Susan Brown (Gail) and his friend and former GH castmate John Reilly (Sean), plus backstage stories with his longtime scene partner, Genie Francis.

Watch the entire conversation with Kin below.

Now let us know, are you all for the Scott and Liesl romance? Will you miss scenes between Scott and Franco?  Would you ever want to see Scott and Laura reunite romantically? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
