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!

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

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

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.

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.

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

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?

Hes out of witness protection.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

Courtesy/ABC

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

 

Courtesy: ABC

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.

James Patrick Stuart Finally Gets His Photo In The Hallways at General Hospital: Watch What Happens!

Where has James Patrick Stuart’s (Valentin Cassadine) photo been all this time from the dressing room area at General Hospital?  Well, looks like we may have the answer to that question!

In a brand new video ditty posted by the folks at GH, Stuart is seen combing the hallways looking for his portrait along with the other major stars of the ABC daytime drama series .. problem is … it’s MIA! Something James takes notice off.

Then, in a time-jump (LOL), Stuart finally gets his big moment when he officially joins the ranks of the cast with his photo being unveiled right next to Maurice Benard’s (Sonny) picture.

The tweet accompanying the video relates: “Contrary to Valentin’s opinion… @japastu is having the best week ever.”   Of course, the tweet refers to Stuart’s character who has just had a disaster-filled wedding to Nina (Cynthia Watros)

Watch what happens below.

Then let us know what you thought of the clip and how much you enjoy the talents of JPS in Port Charles via the comment section below.
