Jessica Tuck Joins General Hospital!

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

One Life to Live fan favorite, Jessica Tuck, who played Megan Gordon Harrison from 1988-1993, and then again during multiple heavenly visits after that in 1994, 2004, 2012, is headed back home to the day-part, but this time on General Hospital!

The actress who was part of the cast of HBO’s True Blood, and also had a stint on Days of our Lives as Madeline back in 2010, will first be seen on GH on tomorrow’s September 20th episode.

The casting news first came to a light with a special message from Tuck herself on the GH social media accounts saying that everyone should tune-in tomorrow! Check that out after the jump.

As to who Jessica will play, well, according to TooFab, the Daytime-Emmy nominated actress is taking on the role of Cassandra, the much talked about mystery woman from Valentin Cassadine’s (James Patrick Stuart) past that Anna (Finola Hughes) is looking for! Seems Tuck’s debut also corresponds with Steve Burton’s return as well.

So, what do you think of Jessica Tuck joining the cast of GH? Comment below!

Not sure what to think…not sure i care…big publicity build up over casting but when the person shows up it often goes downhill from there like Bassey, Depaiva and Buding t to name a few!!!

Valentin will probably have her hidden somewhere in the mansion…his insane ex…Nina will see a ghostly vision of a woman in white…then there will be mysterious attacks on Nina’s life ect

i don’t think it will play out that way since anna devane and finn are leaving the country to go where she is staying because she is involved with the jewelry thief story line…………………….ijs

The “lady in white” storyline was probably the worst of Wolf’s short reign as head writer. When Carlivati took over, he scuttled it with making her Helena’s daughter (was she 60 when she had her?) and having her mother murder her. Equally, non fulfilling.

Come to think of it wasn’t her name revealed to be Cassandra before she died? Heck, maybe you’re on to something.

Ahhhh, Jimmy….you may be describing any scene from Bronte’s “Jane Eyre”.
Rochester gets the girl, LOL.

@jimh…Well, if this ghostly “apparition” were to kill off Nina once and for all, then her presence–real or otherwise–would actually be greatly appreciated!

Shay
Guest

Well, well, well….yet another of Frank’s recycled OLTL-ers (and former ABC soapsters…) crashing Port Charles! Quelle surprise…NOT!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Ha!! Quelle coincidence, ma chere.
I say, when there are too many cooks in the kitchen, the minestrone is spoiled? Ok, so I just made that up. LOL.
But, Shay, that’s how I feel. I find this tasteless—too many new characters to handle. Simplicity works for me.
I assume this is temporary lunacy—-they will leave with the next new moon, in its first phase?
They will all end up in a Russian Mental Institution, run by Dr Bronsky’s brother, Ivan, next door to the “Reconstruction” Center.

Can’t keep track. While I do welcome characters from my other beloved, defunct soaps,…..hmmmm….I don’t know. As I said; too much, too soon. Whaaaz-up??

Soaphound

Celia, my head is spinning. Why more new characters who so many are underused, misused, not used at all, or unceremoniously dismissed? I would think the return of Mr. Burton would be enough for months of the bosses patting themselves on the back. The pain hits me a little lower.

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL, Soaphound. You said it……this is a whirlwind of a storyline. As long as it doesn’t turn into a vortex….the payoff better be a good one.
I can say with certainty that Maura/Ava is superb….as always!!!! What a woman…what a thespian!!!!

Oh, what happened to Bronsky’s accent? Didn’t he have one?

I’m with you Celia, it’s always good to see our former favorites and I appreciate the loyalty of casting those that have done great work in daytime before. Always a bonus/treat and not “stunt casting”—why not put someone we already know in these roles? Although, I just got through watching daytime newbie Daya Vaidya’s (Martina Morales) turn as Carly’s divorce attorney and that totally worked. Also, totally agree with Soaphound and Timmm in working with what we’ve got (a terrific cast) and not neglecting our core (Quartermaines).

Celia
Guest
Celia

Agreed, Reed. I love seeing all my favorites—I wish—-, but not to an overwhelming point….”stunt-casting” works for me, as well.
Yes, Soaphound and Timmm know what they’re talking about—admire them both.

Did she sign on or a guest?? how long?? I hope she kills Anna .. Anna has become unbearable FF.. (what a shame) If she kills Anna she will be my hero and that would be a good thing. And to say.. Jason looks like a take off of Hannibal Lecter or Darth Vader, and that is just more lame,, furthermore; if he were that extremely dangerous he would not be sedated sitting in a common area he would be sedated and locked in a room with a window LOL Shelly and Frank can not stop writing stupid lame drama… Read more »

Oh, su000, how sadly correct you are. Anna’s character is a mess (blackmail? Really?) And that “dangerous man” in the clinic looks like a Ninja reject and about as deadly as the Flying Nun. Either of which I’d prefer.

Oh, I loved The Flying Nun (reruns) when I was little, haha!

Timmm

I know, if 6 was so dangerous why isnt he locked away or have a caretaker with him at all times! LAME!

Celia
Guest
Celia

LAME, indeed, T. Not only that, but if there’s a risk of over-medicating him to death; why do it?
He should be in restraints, as you said…..I just wonder if this is a put-on for Ava’s benefit or if there’s a much more sinister reason behind the idiotic scenes.
I think Burton is acting the part very well….credible.
Yet, I am not happy….when faced with a challenge, I like to have some kind of purchase/grip on the situation….but, I am lost.
We are all making assumptions….hope one of us gets a clue.
Ahhh, well….still think it’s Nicholas with Jason 1’s face. But how?? Why??

Steve
Guest

Bite your tongue, lol. Thanks to poor writing, Anna may be in a dry spell. Frank needs to make good with Tristan Rogers and have him return for a bit to play off Finola.

Waiting to see if a spark ignites between FH and ME.

Oh, I love Tristan Rogers-great comedic actor.

Boy would it be great if Anna was finally taken out, she has become so annoying! Her bullying Finn just does not even add up. I have watched GH since the 80’s and been faithful to the show, but I am just about to turn it off for good. The story lines are not going anywhere and so many of the best characters are being let go. If you want to really let those go that serve no real purpose, I would suggest getting rid of whiny Sam, she to is one that has become annoying.

su, su, su! O, O, O,
Anytime you get Jessica Tuck–rejoice–she’s a class act–and she can act ( :))

But, “kill Anna”? What you been drinking, girl? Or smoking? LOL
Bless your heart!! 🙂

nancy dillingham

btw,, su, how do we know the current “Anna” is the real Anna (that we know and love! LOL)? Where’s that lowdown sister of hers? Might she have escaped again? Happens all the time on GH, doesn’t it? Just a little “bite” to chew on, perhaps?
H.m-m-m-m. Just saying, as they say. Think about it.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, my gosh….su, I just had the best laugh!!!! Kill Anna?? HaHaHa….still laughing.
I do think this Anna/Finn thing is silly. I forgot….what are they trying to find out? With all the goings-on in PC and St. Petersburgh, I can’t keep a straight thought in my head.
I wish you could hear me…I am really laughing with tears here….at one in the morning—Hannibal Lecter and Darth Vader sinched it for me…..
Between you and Jimh, I don’t know what to do….
Who do you dislike more, Sharon or Anna?

It really was pure coincidence that we both used “Quelle surprise, not!” I was first at this thread when I utilized that phrase here, then I went to the Burton one and read your post which incorporated the exact same words!…I almost fell off my chair! LOL…I even replied to those comments saying so, amongst other things, but my response seemed not to land there…don’t know if you personally received it , but having said that, I also echo your sentiments about “keeping it simple.” The convoluted, nonsensical dead-end storylines are reaching the point of critical mass on GH….it’s time… Read more »

I’m very confused because I just read a spoiler site that said this Cassandra is that Woman in White, that daughter of Helena’s that Helena killed. Jessica Tuck is charitably about 20 years older than that. Not to mention it wasn’t ridiculous that Helena had a 20 something daughter! Lol. What she got pregnant at 65?? So I don’t know what’s going on. I loved Jessica as Megan because she was part of so many iconic stories in her brief tenure at OLTL. Her week long death stands as one of the hallmarks of the entire soap genre.

Steve

Tuck would be age appropriate for Helena’s daughter, unlike the previous actress. If she is the same Cassandra, who is the daddy? Probably not Mikkos.

Shay

God help us all if it’s “Clusterfluke!” Hey, stranger things have happened! (And with the writers’ love of historical revisionism, Luke’s evil alter-ego could have existed way back into the ’80’s for all we know!)

I thought Helena’s dead daughter’s name was Irina? – something like that..

Celia

Lol, Jovin…too funny.
Perhaps, Helena became enceinte at 65 by divine intervention?

PS.
Now, isn’t that an oxymoron!!! Divine and Helena just do not go together…..How about Satanic intervention?

Jessica Tuck was terrific as Megan on One Life to Live. I really missed her when she moved on and was so happy each time she made a heavenly appearance. I wish her the very best at GH.

I would love to see Todd Manning and Blair back on screen, really miss that beautiful long hair of Todd’s. Todd was always interesting and so much more there than lately in the realm of Franco. I love the Bad Boy that Roger plays so much more than this weird twin story line. I have come very close to ending my 30 year run with GH, it is just pretty boring!!!

Wouldn’t worry, Timmm-we’ll see her one day, and then won’t see her for a few weeks, at which point we will have forgotten all about her. Another dropped character and storyline.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
