There have been rumors circulating the Internet, plus an item in the December 22nd issue of ABC Soaps in Depth on newsstands now, that actress Kelly Frye is joining the cast of General Hospital in the recurring role of Ivy, and will be on-air by the end of this month on the ABC soap opera.

SID related, ” GH confirms that actress Kelly Frye has been cast in the recurring role of Ivy. Although no other details were available at press time, Frye will make her Port Charles debut on Tuesday December 30.”

Some are speculating that since a casting call went out a few months ago for a new female doctor, that this could be the role.

Frye recently appeared on the CW series, The Flash in the role of “Plastique”.  She has also appeared on the CBS drama series, The Mentalist, and FX’s Anger Management.

So who do you think Kelly will play on GH? Comment below!

Would be interested to see Kelly paired with Ryan Paevey.

What did she ever do to you!

ELLIE TROUT, ELLIE TROUT, ELLIE TROUT

I feel REALLY SILLY for not guessing this already-long red hair, same age minus 7 months or so, a doctor or hospital employee. Emily Wilson has been doing an HBO Show called The Newsroom I think. Most importantly Spin will be back in town next week w/Georgie in tow, ALLEGEDLY. She would come to help w/Georgie. ?

But maybe she’s her evil twin Ivy who has come to PC to reek havoc on all those who have ever done her wrong, starting w/her newly found birth mother Nina Clay

I know it’s unclear if it’s supposed to be a recast, but I’m going to say Ellie, final answer Regis!

Ellie Trout is a good call. Another person I thought of is Christina. Wouldnt she want to see her dad since he is in Pentonville?

Timmm

On second thought, she looks to old to be Ellie. Could be Nina’s daughter?

Dr. Serena Baldwin…

This would be cool – I would love to see Serena Baldwin back on the canvas.

Laurie

Could be Kailey Cassadine, Brook Lynn Ashton, or Nina’s long lost not miscarried after all daughter, as the actress does have red hair. The actress is 29. Unless she’s playing younger that would be too old for Nina’s daughter.

Could be Serena. I see a lot of actress suggestions for Serena Baldwin but why wouldn’t they just bring back the original Serena Baldwin, Carly Schroeder, though? The actress is 24 and pretty.

This actress is 29 & though she doesn’t look it, she seems too old for a Morgan or Michael love interest. They clearly both like older women, though-lol.

Sarah Webber is older than Liz so she seems too young to be her, but that would be fine w/me.

A Robin recast would be great, but seems too young.

Even though I’ve listed 20 possibilities, I’m never right when it comes to this regime. They fool me every time. More than likely she’ll be Nathan’s ex who shows up to make trouble for Nathan and Maxie now that the obstacle of the crooked judge is about to be gone when Maxie gets her daughter back next week. Can’t go a week w/o an obstacle, right?

I don’t mind new characters, but I don’t like that current great ones like Maxie have been pushed aside for months at a time.

Hey Jim,

I think it’s may be Ellie Trout.

Maybe Ellie is Agent Sloane’s long lost daughter that he didn’t know existed, since she was conceived when he was a young, 18 yr old, punk, who her mother never told after he cheated on her w/an older Anna Devane..RME!! I gotta stop!!

All I know is that “Red” & “Agent Sexy Pants Sloane” may be arriving in PC on the same day, no idea if they are in the same sl. Could mean nothing. Could mean everything.

Not Britt…maybe a recast Robin???????????????

But you could be right

Timmm

Wow, she is beautiful! She could be a doctor, decorator, or connected to Nina? Anyway, possibly a new love interest for Prince Nicholas. A nanny for Spencer? With everyone getting arrested maybe an attorney. Could be Serena. Like I’ve said, Scott is not in the forefront right now and he needs to be a father Franco never had. Would there be room for a daughter? Maybe Ethan can come back and wink in her direction. The next generation of the Baldwins and the Spencers!

Laurie

Dear Lord, in the name of everything that is good and holy, please NO more love interests for Nik!! His bed’s still warm from Britt & his 8 year old son is skipping school, declaring his hate for him and yesterday was hanging at pier 4 w/2 murderers-Liesl & “snakes in her hair” grams! Dad, none the wiser, was too busy beelining it to Liz’s & scolding her about who does or doesn’t warm her couch! The absolute LAST thing he needs is a woman! He has plenty enough $ to pay for hookers if necessary while Spence is at school instead of dragging yet another woman into his young son’s life right now. I almost melted down when Brit told Spencer what a good dad he was yesterday. Okay, I’m done!

Timmm, you gotta stop picking on my Nathan-tee hee! He’s not that bad! I’d rather have a stiff Nathan than..(okay, Mr. Fairman’s going to snip that!)

Timmm

Okay Laurie, perhaps I’m a little jealous of “Magic Nathan!” I’ll leave him alone. [Today]

Ivy my foot I bet she’s the new Sarah Webber.

Lew S

Could be – Sarah has been mentioned a few times and Lizzie could use family.

Reagan

(Sarcastically) Yay, another new face in another new role. I might could get excited if this was a long lost Q– like Jimmy Lee Holt’s daughter, but doubtful. I will do my best to give her a shot as I know it has to be hard for new actors with brand new, unconnected roles. Just wish the powers at be would listen to our request to bring back missing characters than create new ones.

Jeremy

Maybe, a possible love interest for Morgan. Morgan & Ivy? Though, I’m hoping Morgan and Ava will find their way back to each other once the baby is returned and revealed as Morgan’s.
I’d like to see Ivy as a long-long daughter of Laura (Genie Francis), and maybe Helena has been hiding her all these years. GH, bring back Genie!

Jeremy

*long-lost daughter

I don’t know how Morgan and Ava are going to have anything other than conjugal visits…I don’t see how they’ll get her out of going to jail for Connie’s murder…though I’ve heard she’s not leaving the show. Should be interesting to see how they handle it.

Either a Brit recast or we are finally Lucy’s daughter Christina

I do not think Kelly is a recast..
Being she will be with the hospital, I think she is long lost offspring of …??

It could be just me but-
I see RC and FV trying to revive the Q’s..
Ned is being seen and Michael has now become a Q and I think Jake/Jason this time around, eventually, will return to his Q roots, also..
Perhaps Kelly will be of Q blood..

I wouldn’t be surprised if she were in fact a Brit recast, rumor had it the actress playing her now will be the new Stephie Forrester on B&B!

richard
richard

JMW is headed back to B&B for February sweeps, so that’s false!!

Aria

Doubt it she wants to try out for movies and prime time work not work on another soap.

Eileen Hargis

She isnt headed to B and B. Not enough talent there.

Phil

See, and I think B&B has the LEAST talented cast on daytime, except Hrather Tom and Rena Sofer who are amazing! The ex-Brit would be a huge improvement of talent.

Eileen Hargis
Eileen Hargis

I believe u misunderstood my comment. When I said not enough talent,,I was referring to Kelly T. BRITT as not having the talent to play a role like Hope. B and B has a lot more talent than Heather and Rena. Jacob, Don, Thorsten, KKL, John, Windsor, Jennifer

Dee Dee Richards

I hope Ivy is a new doctor . If the writers are not going to put Patrick back with Sabrina where her belongs than maybe Ivy can be a new love interest for him.

where he belongs not her belongs

maybe Sean Donnely’s daughter !!

Jimmy

Never heard of the actress before, and quite honestly, I don’t think we need another new character on GH right now. Hopefully she turns out to be Sarah Webber, but if not, maybe she’s Sean Donnely’s daughter.

I doubt she’s a Britt recast, though, because Britt just exited the canvas and she has no story at this point. Britt, (like Sabrina, Carlos, Brad, Felix) is an expendable character that serves no real purpose so I wasn’t sad to see her go and I don’t wish for her to return.

rebecca1

Characters don’t always need a “purpose.” They’re people we fall in love with and immerse ourselves in…just as many of us have with Britt, Brad, Dr. O, Nathan, etc. And, Britt did have a story. She was a doctor, she was a mom figure to Spencer, she was Brad’s best friend, Nina’s cousin, Dr. O’s daughter…and a complex, sympathetic character. Just being on the canvas, mingling in the town, interacting, being a part of this make-believe world, is sometimes satisfying in and of itself til the next adventure comes along into which tapestry they are woven.

Britt was a dropped stitch and hopefully will remain one!

Lol, Eileen.. I think Britt will be back in the tight KNIT community at some point… Hopefully sooner rather than later. To each his own…

This is SO Sarah Webber, Liz’s sister….i hope she comes on and catches Nikolas’ eye!!!!

Sarah is older then liz this actress is younger the Rebecca.

Aria

Change my mind she could be sarah the actress is 30 not 20s like I assume so sarah charater is possible

aria

i’m thinking she’s Annie Donnely, Anna’s goddaughter. She is a red head like the previous actress who played her briefly.

mfarris70

#gingerpower! I doubt that she’s a legacy character as the actress is on recurring. The story has a void with Britt leaving so they need another female doctor for some scenes. I imagine she’ll move around the cast a bit until they lock in the chemistry with a male co-star.

davidevansmith

I had seen a rumor that a female doctor last seen in 2002 was returning soon. The only character that fits that description is Sarah Webber who was last seen in 2002 played by Sarah Laine. Hope there’s a bigger plan in place now for the character. Liz could use the family, and Sarah’s oldest history is with Nikolas, so what better obstacle than Sarah now that Britt is off canvas and Jason is a lingering mystery. But what about Ric? Can’t he also come out of witness protection now?

Eileen Hargis

Hes out of witness protection.

General Hospital

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.
