Kelly Thiebaud Coming Back to General Hospital

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.

Hopefully muttah will not be far behind. Looking forward to seeing Liesl find out Maxie’s pregnant with the demon spawn.

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.

There’s always room for The Britch on GH as far as I’m concerned!!!

I like her and Julian together and Brook Lynn and Valentin as a couple.

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!

Perry Botkin Jr., Composer of The Young and the Restless’ ‘Nadia’s Theme’, Has Died At 87

When you think of the all-time best theme songs for your favorite television shows and one that stands the test of time, to many, there is none greater than “Nadia’s Theme” which became the theme song for The Young and the Restless.

The beautiful arrangement has become signature to the world of daytime drama and the opening credits of the CBS Daytime drama from its beginning in 1973.

On Saturday, news spread that “Nadia’s Theme” composer, Perry Botkin Jr, had passed away.  Botkin’s friend, TV writer John Scheinfeld, announced his death on Facebook, noting that Botkin died this past Monday at the age of 87,

Scheinfeld shared: “Perry was a magnificently talented composer, arranger, producer and story-teller, perhaps best known for composing the Grammy-winning Nadia’s Theme for the CBS soap The Young and the Restless.”

Perry was Oscar nominated and a Grammy-winner in his lifetime.  Among the most notable titles featuring Botkin’s work include: Happy Days, Mork and Mindy, Laverne and Shirley, Adam’s Rib and The Smothers Brothers Show. However, Botkin is most known for Nadia’s Theme which he composed along with Barry De Vorzon.

After the theme became the beloved opening of Y&R, it gained more fame when it was used in a montage for Romanian gymnast Nadia Comāneci’s routines in the 1976 Olympic games on ABC’s Wide World of Sports.  Decades later, Mary J. Blige used the sample of the song and made it relevant again for her hit, “No More Drama”

Another song by Botkin Jr. and DeVorzon, “Bless the Beasts & Children” was Oscar nominated, sung by The Carpenters, and also sung at various times on Y&R.

To honor Perry Botkin Jr., check out this compilation of the opening title sequence from Y&R over the years featuring “Nadia’s Theme” below

Share your thoughts on the passing of Perry Botkin Jr., in the comment section, and if you think Y&R has the greatest soap theme song of all-time, or do you think that honor goes to another theme?
