Photo: JPI

More ‘Britch’, please!  So many GH fans love the performances and antics of Dr. Britt Westbourne as played by Kelly Thiebaud whenever she pops back up on their screens.

The actress who was first seen on the ABC daytime drama series back in 2012 and who after departing the series in 2015, returned several times since then for some guest stints. The last time being earlier this year.

But now via Soap Opera Digest, it seems like Kelly will be back on GH for a longer arc this time around.

No word yet on when Kelly will first appear back on-screen.

So, excited to know there is more Britt on the way on GH? Comment below.

Yes, what’s happened to the Frau Doktor? Just realized she hasn’t been around causing trouble. Franco could use his old friend now.

I may be in the minority here, but I would have liked to see her come back to DAYS instead. That said I’m glad she will be back, but where is Hayden?

Her tenure at Days of Our Lives was definitely too short, however, the character assassination of Zoey Burge happened far too quickly for me to actually want the character back at this point. As for Hayden, I do wish Rebecca Budig would return, however, only if it is a long-term reprisal with story promise.

I wish anybody would return and split up this unholy pairing of Anna and Finn. How long are they going to torture us with this incredibly stupid union.

I’m with you!! She was a great refreshing new character on Days. That show needs freshness not continually recycling the past.

She’s a WOMAN unto herself. she knocks me out how much presence she brings. perhaps she can BFF w/Liz this time around. dag! i am so over Franco… how clingy, sloppy, jelous, he is with Liz. Rebecca Herbst is an ALL WOMAN passionista…. who should be partay’king ALL of Port Charles. that being said i’ll take it in this marvel … My Britta is back and makes Carly and Sam bearable…. Kelly Thiebaud, had better be contract… COME ON Frank Valentini!

Well thank the Soap Gods for this great news! She is always a breath of fresh air! So happy to have the Britch back. Now if they’d only let Brad out of Pentonville so they can scheme together that would be a hoot!

Britch is certainly far more entertaining than Ava or Nelle. I was just getting used to seeing her on Days when she abruptly disappeared. (Ironically they replaced her with the actress who played that weird half naked mute chick that Garin Wolf wrote into the Cassadine family for no good reason in 2011)

If they give her a decent storyline, this could be a good thing. Maybe she’ll be the one who kills off Whiny Heiny, but he’s her half brother, so that’s not very likely.

Awesome–one of my favorites. I’d like to see her team up with Nicholas (and Spencer) to take-down Ava.

Wonderful idea! I loved the three of them together, with the “old” Nickolas of course.

Oh, I am loving this and hope her mother comes back and end Peter’s lies.

That was the best when Liesel had Phillip tied up in that cabin of torture she kept him in. Too bad the Boy Scout had to save him.

One of the few GH modern-day characters that actually developed over time.

Brit’s last (but short) visit surely made an impact that had lasting effects!

Thrilled to have the actress and her tons of fun character back! Britt’s brief appearance earlier this year seemed forced, and God help us if it’s another baby plot device (still waiting for Dr. Kim Nero to return with Franco’s spawn). One minute she’s back on staff at GH on a provisional basis and the next, poof! The door didn’t even get a chance to hit her! The same can be said for Rebecca Budig’s Hayden–leasing the Nero apartment one minute and the next she’s gone in a slipshod plot exit rivaling only Dante’s. Soaps play the long game, by… Read more »

I would have loved to see her or her mother take out Nelle. She could have grabbed that long hair and swung her around like a rag doll! Now, that would be worth watching!

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?
