Kelly Sullivan Says Farewell To General Hospital and "RIP Connie!"

Courtesy/KellySullivan.com

Courtesy/KellySullivan.com

As General Hospital fans around the country today are watching the demise of Connie Falconeri, it marks the end of the line for Kelly Sullivan, who for two years impressed the television audience with her portrayal of Kate Howard/Connie Falconeri in the DID storyline and as a love interest for Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and much more!

As viewers on the west coast just watched Connie take her last breath, Sullivan took to Twitter to say: “RIP Connie. It was a great two years! Thank you for your love and support, it means so much. Long live GH!”

We expect today lots of people on Twitter to also share their sentiments to Kelly on a job well done.  So now the question is, who do you think shot and killed Connie? Are you looking forward to how the story will play out? Or, upset that Kelly has finished her run? Or, both?  Comment below!

Sonny killed her in my opinion. He waited way too long before calling 911 :p …We can always blame Sonny 😉

Hahaha, I kept thinking the same thing! I know it’s a soap, but come on, the girl is dying and you just hold her hand, talking to her and not calling 911 until 3/4 of the show is done? What is that, like 5 minutes of realtime before he actually tries to get help? They could’ve EASILY had the same lines, except he calls first, THEN he tries to keep her awake!

It was stupid on Sonny’s part, yes. But the show had their reasons for making it this way. For one, Kelly wanted to leave the show so they can’t make it where it looks like she should have survived. And second, They needed Sonny to leave and go after a.j. Directly after calling the cops before they got there, so they had him talk to her first because it would have been lame if they didn’t even say I love you one last time. And perhaps Sonny could tell it as too fatal a wound so he might as well… Read more »

It definitely took him a long time…..but why was he fumbling around with the phone ( didn’t know the number – 911) and couldn’t get out want he needed….I guess Sony is not use to calling 911…LOL… he handles and gets rid of his problems…

Usually I am cynical about deaths on soap operas, and even knowing Connie was going to die– the scene where she actually did, moved me to tears. Any actress who can get this harden soap watching vet to get mushy deserves a round of applause.
Thank you KS for the scene and for giving it your all even when you knew it meant you got fired. Kudos to GH for doing it so well– it is a shame we lost Connie– but at least she went out with with a bang– no pun intended.

Agree Ava did it especially because Connie figured out julienne ect and was going to tell him about. That’s why she was helping aj to drink. Not sure if I’m gonna like the story line for aj. He needs to have something good happen. Getting sick of watching all this you will never change bit when he has and why bring him back if he doesn’t change?

sad to see Kelly go, she will do well in other adventures, its just the nature of the business, and im not in show business but I have seen this so many times on many tv shows, as fan I do not like it but it is what it is!!! will miss Kelly she was a fantastic actor and made me laugh when she portrayed Connie when the character was in DID mode, thanks Kelly, and will look forward to seeing you in new advewntures!!

I totally agree — one of the best actresses I’ve seen in a long time. Didn’t care for her too much at the beginning but am really sorry she’s gone. They could have easily gotten rid of someone else instead. I will really miss both the actress and the Connie character.

su0000

I go with;
Ava as the killer..
Most likely a struggle, garbing the gun and the gun was fired..

AJ will be blamed and he will go through a change of character during it all..
I also believe that Franco will be involved as witnessing what actually happened ..

This is where Franco will be brought into a story..

Do you really think Ava– who is a member of a ruthless crime family would shoot someone point blank range and then leave without checking to see if her victim was actually dead and thereby unable to ID her? I don’t think Ava would be that sloppy, it isn’t her style. Her style is cunning and careful– goading a drunken AJ into killing Conne is what Ava would do and did– no don’t think the killer is Ava— if GH wants a good mystery it has to be someone not so obvious.

She wrote A.J. in her blood but that could easily stand for Ava Jerome. Kelly Sullivan would make a great Kristen Dimera on DOOL…please!!! loved her chemistry with Derek/Julian…they wouldve made a hot couple!!!

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

I still think Ava is way too obvious — if this is supposed to be a murder mystery it isn’t a very good one if Ava is the killer. I watched the character in her scenes after the murder and she didn’t strike me as a woman who just killed someone– she didn’t seem the least bit rattled. Are there any former characters that had the initials AJ, or maybe she was trying to write something else and it didn’t come out right? There has to more to this than Ava. If it wasn’t one of Connie’s alters in strange… Read more »

The more I think about it, the more I am convinced it was the maid. Her initials are AG, so Connie could have been trying to write out a G but it came out looking like a J. AJ had to get to the office somehow– he didn’t drive and wasn’t in any shape to call a cab or walk. So it was Alice who drove him to Crimson. She waited in the car and when AJ was taking so long she went up to office– she overhears all the horrible thing AJ suffered because of Connie, so when AJ… Read more »

There was a murder mystery on GH 30 years ago: Diana Taylor, who was killed by Alice Grant, Heathers mother. Annes name was written in blood…so maybe this time too an Alice committed the crime…RC is clever enough writer to include nods to the shows past so maybe he is doing it here as well…i agree its gotta be the maid who did it!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Alice couldve grabbed for the gun and it accidentally went off…she panicked and run off with A.J. leaving a dieing Connie on the floor!

If Alice wanted to kill anyone, she could do it with her bare hands….she’s not called “The Dominator” for nothing!!!!!! She “don’t need no freaking gun!” LOL….

I’m, going with Ava, too. It is AJQ who would be too obvious. Ava was upset that her secret about Kiki’s paternity had gotten out so she had reason to want Connie dead. AJ will be the prime suspect for a while and may even be convicted and sent to Pentonville but the truth will come out eventually and he will be freed.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

It seems to be Ava…however, i think RC will shock us, and itll either be Monica, Alice or Connie herself but as Kate…we got have a mystery whovdunnit, and it might not be Ava…but what if A.J. really did do it…that would be something none of us would expect.!!!

Maggie
Guest

I think it would be stupid to bring him back and have him do it. Forgot about Alice, but if Aj does get put away for it how could she keep quite when she did what she did for him. I thought potentially Franco too but I don’t understand why he would. I hope they get his story line going soon. I think he is a great actor

Mary SF

Ava is a member of a crime family— I think it would be sloppy and stupid of her to shoot someone point blank range and not check to see if Connie was dead before leaving the building– any mob daughter would know you don’t leave a witness alive to ID you later. No– don’t think it was Ava.

Shay
Guest

Ava also tends to be easily thrown and over-emotional….she is not the cool and collected cucumber she pretends to be….especially when she has already tossed back a few. The more I see of her, the less impressed I am with her abilities…she’s really just a “B-Movie Queen” in disguise. I can see her falling apart very easily….especially when “the plan” starts going awry…..

I think Ava did it or someone connected to her. The suspects I had in mind were Ava, Franco, even Morgan. May not be any of them. AJQ looks the most likely one but that would be too simple.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
Guest
jimh(leave it to beaver)

What if it was Monica, Alice or Connie herself but as Kate?

Helen
Guest
Helen

Hi, I didn’t think about them but it is not likely. Monica and Alice don’t use guns besides AJ was the one who had the gun. Monica and Alice wouldn’t do it knowing AJ would be a suspect. The way Connie was shot, I don’t think she could have done it to herself. Where would she have gotten the gun unless as someone mentioned that she and AJ were fighting and the gun went off. In that case AJ would be guilty because his intention was to kill her.

I will miss her vivacity and versatility in the dual role of Connie/Kate. This regime dropped the ball with the integrated personality when they failed to capitalize on the chemistry between her and Jane Elliot. They could easily have spun these two off to work together as powerhouse female business entrepeneurs that offered story balance for the hospital and re-emerging mob segments of the canvas.I treasure having had the opportunity to meet her in person and I look forward to whatever happens next for this lovely and very talented artist. GH is the poorer for absence.

I have to be honest, when KS first came to GH to play Kate Howard, I was not happy about the choice. However, within weeks of her coming on the show I was a fan. She truly made Kate/Connie her own and I enjoyed watching her over the past two years and I am very sad to see her go. I also agree with many of the peeps here that it was Ava who killed her and not AJ. Wishing Kelly the best of luck and I am looking forward to meeting her in FL this fall at the Fall… Read more »

Ava did it. She came to the office and saw AJ chicken out on shooting Connie, he drops the gun she picks it up and shots Connie. Something tells me Ava is the real seriel killer not Franco!

Mary SF
Guest

A daughter from a ruthless mob family would not leave the scene without making sure her victim was actually dead— first rule in a hit– don’t leave any witnesses alive who might have seen you do it. Don’t think it will be Ava— goading AJ into wanting to kill Connie was more her style, which is what she did. Usually the killer is someone you least suspect which is why I am going with Alice the Quartermaine’s maid. Her initials are AG, which Connie was trying to write by it came out AJ instead. She loves Mr. AJ and would… Read more »

But what if Monica shot Connie…Connie might have wanted to spell out A.J.s mother but died b4 she could finish…this way RC could fool us all…Monica wouldnt see A.J go to prison so she’ll blurt out the truth at his sentencing but she’ll go free because the gun went off when she took it from him so itll be ruled an accident!!!

Kelly is a great actress but I thought the scene was poorly written. I agree with the person above, Sonny killed her by not calling for help immediately. And really? he doesn’t immediately repeatedly yell, who did this? who did this to you? The actors did what they were told to do very well… I just think the writers missed in on this one. Much of it was done well, but then the obvious things ruined it for me. For one – after being shot in the abdomen, lifting up her head in that odd position she was in would… Read more »

Sorry to see Kelly Sullivan go, she did such a great job as Kate/Connie over the past two years, especially last year with the split personality storyline, and the fact that she didn’t get nominated for an Emmy was one of the biggest snubs in recent Emmy history. I’m sure she will have a lot of success in whatever else she does in the future. From a GH perspective, her death opens the door for what should be a compelling story in the weeks and months to come.

DAYS should scoop her up. Maybe as a cop – Hope’s partner. They could be a tough-ass crime fighting due and also buddies a la “The Heat” (KS is the gritty cop, Hope is the prim and propper Sandra Bulock character). KS even gets Hope to come to terms and admit Bo has abandoned her (like Sandra Bullock opening up avout being adopted). The subtext, however, is that Hope suspects that KS’ character is actually a dirty cop but she can never prove it. Meanwhile, KS meets Brady in their 12 step programs and right when she’s about to say… Read more »

Kelly Sullivan is an awesome actress..I bet she already has something going on!!! maybe that is why she was killed off…her last scene really got to me because I had a sibling that was shot & killed a few years ago & it was almost too much…I usually don’t get like that watching those types of scenes….a testament to her acting..I predict Kelly is gonna do great things..

I am not the only person who agreed that Sonny took long to call 911 and the ambulance took long to come. I didn’t think that AJ stood for Ava Jerome but I suspect Allan Jnr. didn’t shoot because it is too obvious. Kelly Sullivan did some great acting in the past two years. I wish her well.

Two former GH characters with the appropriate initials that may have come back from the dead. Aleksander Janáček Amelia Joffe Aleksander was in a crime family. Maybe he or someone like him was trying to kill Julian and Connie got in the way? Amelia was crazy, all kinds of possible scenarios there. I had no idea the Connie character was being killed off.

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.

Photo: Getty

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.
