Kim Delaney Joins the Cast of General Hospital

Photo: NBC

All My Children fan favorite, Kim Delaney is coming to Port Charles and ABC’s General Hospital!

News today from Deadline indicates the former soap star from her days as Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner will be arriving on the scene in a role being kept under wraps.  No word if Kim will be a new character or perhaps a very much alive, Jenny.

Delaney starts taping her role on GH tomorrow with her first episodes to air in late September or early October.

Previously, the actress nabbed three Emmy nominations and a supporting actress win in 1997 for NYPD Blue.  She most recently has been appearing on Chicago Fire and The Oath.   Soap fans also remember her from the series, Army Wives.

Kim’s upcoming arrival to GH reunites her with her former on-screen brother, Michael E. Knight (Martin) who played Tad Gardner on AMC.  Could they be related on GH as well?

So, what do you think of Kim joining GH? Who would you like to see her play? Comment below.

Cast list is totally full… but will she be Lois recast? Brooklyn’s mom.

Likely, she’ll play Chase’s mom. Long shot that she’s a recast Lois.

Whomever she plays, there’s bound to be a scene at the MetroCourt where her character runs into Martin. Some clever quip from MEK is in order.

Sounds great! I wish she was joining All My Children along with Michael Knight but I’m still thrilled and looking forward to it!

I love Kim–it’s about time!! There are so many possibilities—-Alex Devane with a new face? Holly? A completely new character? —how about Martin’s sister? LOL–his wife? Robert’s new love interest?
The best would be for her to snatch Finn from Anna—-such a mismatched couple—no sex appeal; no oomph; just a tiring woman.

Hi Celia- 🙂
ahha! she will be Scorpios supposedly dead love, alive.

A Holly recast would be an incredibly stupid thing to do. Especially with somebody who is not even British. They should probably hold off on any Holly storylines until Emma Samms is available & healthy to do the job. I’m going to pull an idea totally out of left field here and say that Kim Delaney might be Elizabeth Webber’s mother. Somebody who has never actually been seen. In fact, I don’t think she’s ever been given a name. Of course that also means that Jeff Webber might be coming back to Port Charles for the first time since 1981… Read more »

The role of Holly IS NOT the exclusive property of Emma Samms.

Satan
Guest

You keep repeating that same talking point, but the fact is that some roles simply cannot be recast, and in other cases, there would be no valid reason to even attempt such a thing.

The character of Holly isn’t really essential in any of the current storylines, so if they had something in mind for her, there’s no reason why it couldn’t wait until Emma is healthy enough to do it. I would certainly prefer Holly Sutton Scorpio over the likes of Ava, Nelle, or Frodd any day.

We good with the liz stuff.besides her parents are doctors.the cast is way to bloated.and has anyone realize that frank is turning GH into OLTL AMC cross over.

Celia
Guest

Yeah, right?? It could be Holly, after plastic surgery. I wasn’t even born when she left, but I am pretty acquainted with the character—-supposedly, Holly Scorpio died in a plane crash. What if she survived? Good plot!!

Satan
Guest
Satan

Wouldn’t be the first time. She supposedly died in a plane crash in 1987…. she was also pregnant with Robert’s child at the time. Which should logically have been Ethan. But instead we got this ridiculous rewrite as part of the “FLuke” storyline which made Luke his father (even though Luke was living in Canada with his family at the time, hiding from Frank Smith)

Violet Lemm
Guest

Evidently, Luke had a long reach so to speak. I thought that Anna was the love of Scorpion’s life, but he acts like it was Holly.I did not see them together,so can’t really have an opinion.

Patrick

I LOVE the idea of a LOVE Interest w/Robert. that way… NO ONE LOSES. and it’s a sizzling pair with excitement !!!! you just sit and anticipate. Drive Robert

it would ALL take care of itself. STEAM ROLL PLEASE

your last sentence. it’s a wonder how – VOID – just put a stamp on it. Anna and Finn. ???? People, really ? Frank VAlentini MUST NIX this tired Pairing

I hope Robert and Liv end up together. Therefore, I am hoping Kim with play Lois. That would give Ned the opportunity to rekindle his love for Lois.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hey, Timmmy—-how are you??
Funny thing—The thought of Robert and Liv together did cross my mind lately. There is a tangibly vivid connection there—I felt it; more so than with the other guy, her husband (in my head he’s Justin–HaHa)—- getting old, as his name constantly escaoes me.
I did familiarize myself with Lois—and, yes—-I would love to see the rekindled love. It must have been a great one!!
So, I agree with you, my friend—-

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

I am great C! And you are here so you must we well? I was all for Ned and Olivia but the magic has worn off. He and Kim Delaney would work well together. Robert has a light that hasnt been seen in his eyes for some time. Liv does that to him and it could be fun to see them mix with Anna and the “Insect!” [Finn] BTW, I like the replacement Brook Lynn but I hope the other actress is back soon! Luv ya!

Satan
Guest

The previous Lois recast was so horrible, I figured they probably gave up that idea. It’s hard to imagine anybody other than Rena Sofer pulling off that role, at least properly. The look, the attitude, the Bensonhurst accent, the ridiculous fingernails, all of it. Otherwise, it ain’t Lois. Hell, she even had me convinced she was Italian (even though she’s not)

rose
Guest

Satan…So agree about Rena as the original Lois. This was a great and fun time that included Jax and Alexis. Do I remember her popping up out of a big cake at some celebration? Don’t like her role on B&B but to give her credit she plays it well. Wish they would give her a timeout to come over to GH and reprise her role as Lois. Have been seeing her as a lawyer on reruns of NCIS. Again she’s great.

Satan
Guest
Satan

Yeah, she popped out of the cake at Katherine Bell’s birthday party. Both were married to Ned at the time, but Lois initially had no idea he had another wife, or even who his family was, as she only knew him by his rock star alias “Eddie Maine”.

Obviously the dragonshit hit the fan when this truth all came out.

Always happy to see Kim Delaney in any role but please do not bring her back as Jenny Gardner. That character was one of the most beloved heroines in AMC’s history and if the legendary Agnes Nixon chose not to bring her back before the series finale then there’s no way the GH scribes should.

M Knight was at Y&R as Simon, and they attempted to pair him with Ashley, but unfortunately that ended quickly, though it had major potential.

Only know Kim from primetime, so should be interesting. She could have been scooped up as a love interest for Jack on Y&R. What they are doing with Jack is beyond me…

” I do not know ” where’s the BUZZ on Micheal E. Knight… thankfully, he’s good in scenes w/Valentin. When JASON had that biking accident… FB was ALL Abuzz… it was the 2nd coming resurge of MONICA son… REAL’ly to no avail… as the majority of POSTS : WE HAVE NO FAITH in the writer(s) when IS Mike going to die ! ENOUGH ! Frank Valentini ! DAG ! the one true thing @GH rebound. BRINGING BACK BRITA ! w/BFF Brad… could their be a connection between Britta AND Kim Delaney? you have to surround her with all around presence…… Read more »

Patrick

WHY NOT pair her up as someone from Valentin past? Jason Patrick Stuart has that embodiment of refined, comedic, dramatic flair… he’d meld with Ms. Delaney… let’s see a new dance pair… along with Britta AND Julian. Neil has a twin !?!? you ruined a potential pairing… I don’t give a rats ass if NLG is the performer of the week… for who? Sam ? Christ

Celia
Guest

So glad you see the comedic side of Valentin, Patrick—-we are of like-mind in this—-to moi, Valentin always has this sort of subdued, little smirk on his face—-as if he knows something about everything and everyone which no one else does. I think he’s hilarious—as dastardly as he is; I enjoy all his scenes….. unlike his partner in crime, Peter—-most boring, unattractive, bland actor as I’ve ever seen—-right up there with Justin, Michael and Cyrus; just to name a couple….

new material

I’m all for new material/change. Let’s start with giving Peter the boot. Such a useless character. But, if Alex comes back claiming Peter as her son, his face will continue to mar my screen. By the same token, he will leave with his new Mommy, Alex.

Nathan Parsons is returning to General Hospital as Ethan Lovett.
(he’s Holly’s brother??)
So— Holly will be back played by Kim Delaney..
giving Robert/Scorpion a great drama story..
It’s ridiculously obvious.. lol

Satan
Guest
Satan

Ethan is Holly’s son. Luke was supposedly his father, though the timeline making that possible was a ridiculous distortion that even ReRon’s idiotic FLuke storyline didn’t make a likely story.

The more logical course of action would have been for Robert to be his father, as Holly was actually pregnant with Robert’s baby when she supposedly died in a plane crash somewhere in Australia in 1987 or so.

Nana0655

Nana0655

I’m having a little problem with everyone thinking that Ethan came around in the Fluke story…Ethan came on GH 2009. Luke nicknamed him Dodger..Ethan wasn’t around during the Fluke days. He came back after that to rescue both his sons from Frank Smith.. This was during the time they rescued Jake..The last we heard of Ethan was when Holly took Ethan to the hospital cause Frank’s men shot him..

Satan
Guest
Satan

Ethan was around before the Fluke story, but they never bothered to explain exactly HOW Luke could have been his father until then. And ReRon wrote it as some dumb scenario where Luke went into one of his Fluke episodes and abandoned Laura & Lucky from where ever they were hiding out from Frank Smith’s mob at the time, so he could hook up with Holly… even though everybody in Port Charles believed her to be dead at the time. Like most elements of the ClusterFluke story, it made zero sense. It would have fit the existing original storyline of… Read more »

Holly miscarried Luke’s baby while he was missing in the mountains. She married Robert prior to losing the baby.

A major part of that storyline was Holly being told she couldn’t bear children, as was thus not pregnant at the time of the plane crash (otherwise referred to as the Dynasty years).

Flash forward to the creation of the Ethan character. Tony Geary did not have the bond with Greg Vaughn that he did with Jonathan Jackson. JFP and Guza created Ethan and shoe-horned him into the Luke/Holly background.

I think you’re right, Su000. Given how much I do NOT want her to be playing Holly, that’s probably exactly what they’re going to do.

I will say this much: if they really feel they need Holly and Emma Samms can’t come back for health reasons, then I agree that they need an actress of Delaney’s caliber (and star power) to have a chance in hell of making it work.

(But it won’t, because they will screw it up.)

I think Valentin played out Julian has to tbh but they are comical I think they both could be good friends with Lucy she’s funny as well as Scott they can all just hang out and dwell on their no love life.if they’re not gonna get rid of them.& i never thought or wanted Britt with Julian imo that matchup was just as bad as Ava & nikolas Michael & Sasha Dustin & lulu Anna & Finn Hayden & Finn Olivia & Justin Nina & Jax,’I’m a diehard JaSam fan that’s it..but I do like Michael & willow sorry chase..

Well… word here in Hell is that Kim is going to be a recast of the long lost Jackie Templeton. Last seen around 1982 or so, if a Devil remembers correctly. For those of you who weren’t around in those days, the original actress in that role was none other than Demi Moore. Presumably she turned down any invitations to come back, even though she’s been doing various TV appearances in recent years. Not sure why this character’s coming out of the virtual storage locker after damn near 40 years, but apparently it’s going to have something to do with… Read more »

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Exit Days of our Lives

Coming up on Days of our Lives, both Lani and Eli Grant will be written off the canvas to facilitate the departures of Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani).

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Archey who stepped into the role in 2017, has made the decision to leave the long-running NBC soap opera, and will last air the week of July 4.

As for Stowers, she will last air on Friday, July 1st, and given her current storyline, it looks like Lani, who has confessed to murdering TJ (William Christian), will either be sent to prison, or will exit Salem with Eli.

This would not be the first-time that Stowers has departed DAYS.  After her debut in 2015, she was off the Salem canvas for a six-month break in 2016, before returning to the show through 2022.

We will share more information on Lamon and Sal’s exits as it comes to light.

It was about to come true, until I tested positive for Covid yesterday afternoon. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to celebrate with everyone on Friday. I’ve cried lots of tears.  Thankfully, I’m asymptomatic. I’m super grateful no one in our home is sick. What a blessing.  To my Daytime community, have the best time. Wish I could be there but I’ll be watching from home and cheering on all of the nominees! Y&R bring home the gold! Love you all! And to everyone at CBS and Sony thank you for everything.
