Kendrick Cross Debuts as GH’s Detective Bennett

If you caught yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, there was a new detective on the beat, when ‘The Hook’ tried to take out both Josslyn (Eden McCoy) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud).

Enter former Ambitions star, Kendrick Cross. The actor most-known to soap fans for his role as Titus Hughes on the OWN soap opera, took to his Instagram to announce his gig in Port Charles.

Kendrick shared the casting news, expressing: “Welp I guess the news is out!!! Might as well let ya know that ya boy is on General Hospital.  Been holding on to this secret for weeks lol huge huge shout out to @entlab.la they saw the vision and hopped right on board!!! It’s only going up from here… New episodes coming soon…!!! #LetsGo”

Look for Cross to be recurring on the ABC daytime drama series.   In addition to his role on GH, look for Kendrick to make a guest-star turn in the upcoming January 17th episode of the new ABC crime drama Will Trent.

Now the question is, will Detective Bennett fare better than the other cops and investigators at the PCPD, where somehow criminals slip through their fingers every single time? Time will tell.

So, what did you think of Kendrick’s debut on GH?  Comment below.

I wonder if he’ll be coupled with Jordan? I think they’d look good together. Maybe it would be a secret romance in jeopardy because of them working at the police station.

Why do we need another detective? Put Chase back on the beat.

I agree, Jacqueline. Traditionally the PCPD is just there to provide unintentional laughs, particularly the denser- than-dirt Dante. This guy seems like another waste of space. Let’s have Chase back..at least he’s a good person.

I think they only reason they keep Dante is that he’s Sonny’s son and the friction their relationship causes. I can’t stand him and Sam together. I thought they might grow on me with time but still don’t see anything there. Yes, put Chsse back where he belongs, which certainly isn’t with that controlling Brook Lyn.

while I will agree that Brooklyn is controlling, I do really love Amanda Sellton in the role. She was also wonderful in her Gossip Girl role, back in the original series. I would love to see her and Tracy ( Jane Elliott ) have a big storyline together. It is very humorous when she refers to her as “granny”

HaHaHa—-unintentional laughs!! Good one, Soaphound. I consider Dante a marionette (and,anyone who says “should have “went” instead of should have “gone” is a goner to me) —then coupled with Sam?—- my-oh-my!! The most boring couple on TV—and her voice!! I don’t know which is more irritating —hers or nuTrina’s.

I am bored near to death with the hook story..
It was stupid from the git-go..
Whoever came up with that waste of air-time story should
be sent to Siberia..

LOL. Su—-it’s sort of twisted/ironic poetic justice because to me the hook symbolizes Ryan’s missing hand.

Hi Celia –Loooong time, hope all is well and happy in your life 🙂
The hook sucks LOL it’s not exciting, not suspenseful, no drama,
it’s just showing us a hook=lame.
a total snooze..
-it’s merely a way to get rid of characters..-

The show had a perfectly good policeman in Rory and I wish he could come back.

Well if Rory gets to come back from being dead… then so does Britt ? Unless the entire hook storyline is nothing more than a bad dream sequence… Dallas got away with eliminating an entire season doing this…so perhaps GH can too.

On a semi-related note, did I miss something regarding the poison Selina gave Victor? Talk about a nothing-burger!

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.
