I SOOOOOOOOOOOO want to see this. I am a huge fan of Arrested Development AND of Jeffrey Tamber and Judith Light.
Being something of a Ludditte, I am having trouble figuring out how to stream it. The critics are all exultant over this new series. I can’t wait to see it.

With Judith Light and Jeffrey Tambor on board, it should be terrific. Both are truly gifted actors.

I finally was able to see the first three episodes. It does not disappoint. Jeffrey Tamber is the quintessential sad clown and Gabby Hoffman is both hilarious and very sad as his youngest daughter, who is brilliant but unable to find her place in this world. Judith Light is morphing into the next Helen Merren playing his world-weary, slightly eccentric ex wife. Did I laugh? Yes. But I cried a little too watching this dysfunctional family lead their quiet lives of desperation, full of secrets and hence, full of loneliness. It’s incredibly good–please try and watch if you can.

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

Congratulate Nancy and tell us your favorite Alexis Davis moments via the comment section.
