I like MB’s more mature and measured portrayal of Maxie better. I hope KS adopts some of that into the Maxie character when she returns.

Good. Molly filled in well but Kristen IS Maxie. Now a suggestion. Nick Stabile has been on fire as Nick. We all assume TC is coming back? Thats fine, Tyler is great as the Prince. Could ABC PLEASE use Nick Stabile as a recasted Nathan West? The character is in a big story and he CANNOT handle working with all the talent around him! He is ruining important scenes! Nick Stabile will knock it out of the park!

Ahhh, my Timmmbo. Firstly, I’d be heartbroken. I say; Do you want that on your conscience?
Secondly, he is too old to be Nathan!!!!! But, I do want him with Maura…..in whatever capacity.

Be sure to circle KS’s return date for your little man, Nico! He’ll be over the moon that “RealMaxie” is back!

@Shay.
LOL. Done and done.
Nico whined a bit here and there because he didn’t see Maxie. He recovers quite nicely as soon as his cousins come around. Playtime is apparently more important.
At least, she’s coming back before the school year starts and before he goes to day-camp.
He asked me if Maxie could come to his birthday party…LOL. Out of the mouth of babes.
Wow, Shay!! You remembered my son Nicholas’ moniker. Sweet.

Great idea, Timmm! The current Nathan is a snooze.

I suppose Maxie will sleep with Griffen after Claudette drugs Nathan and gets him to sleep with her…Maxie has also slept with Nathan and Claudette has slept with Griffen…here is the shocker…both women get pregnant…Maxie doesnt know if her child is Nathan’s or Griffen’s…Claudette doesnt know which one is the father of her child…one is Griffen’s and one is Nathan’s but which lady has which father’s child…oh, no…there was a baby switch at the hospital…Maxie thinks she has Griffen’s and Claudette’s is Nathan’s or is it the other way around?…they could easily figure out the baby switch-Maxie had a boy… Read more »

I like Molly Burnett dahmit!
She is not juvenile and has grownup smarts about her ..
Molly Burnett as Maxie is more sophisticated in the role

Agree su0000!! Molly has brought this wonderful maturity to Maxie..Kirsten’s Maxie, has been getting on my nerves for a couple of years..Her acting has not evolve and nor has her character, still the ditzy and whinny inmature Maxie.

Oh well, welcome back Ms Storms!

I don’t understand, Michael. What do you mean? I do not think Kirsten had a controlled substance problem. She had an issue with her skin, at least, that’s what I believed.

I am kinda gonna miss Molly in the role ,but Kirsten IS Maxie. Hope I get to see Molly in another role soon on daytime ! She did very well subbing for Kirsten.

I can’t wait to have Kirsten back… she is Maxie and no one else has ever been able to do Maxie like she does. Jen came close, but Kirsten has something special that she brings to the role of Maxie!

Molly has not cut it at all in my opinion and I can’t wait to have the Maxie I love back!

I’m very happy Kirsten is soon back!
Molly did an OK job, but after seeing her in several different roles now, I still don’t care for her acting “style.” She does a couple weird things, with her mouth and body language, that bug me! LOL

Soaphound

Yes, Szima, I noticed that too. There are times she seems to be talking while trying to remove peanut butter from her teeth. Which, I believe, was how they got the horse in MR. ED to simulate talking. I actually didn’t mean that the way it sounded. I like Molly very much as Maxie and of the recent additions (the laughable Aaron –who probably couldn’t even SPELL chef– , Nurse Amy, Rachel’s mother, Andre, and especially Claudette) she is by far the best fit for GH. Maybe in a different role later on, or as a replacement for the hard-to-take… Read more »

Glad that Kirsten Storms is returning as Maxie. She’s just great. I did enjoy Molly Burnett’s temporary portrayal of Maxie, and I agree with Melissa that Molly Burnett played a more mature Maxie, and I’m hoping that Kirsten Storms will do the same, when she returns. Kudos to both Jen Lilley and Molly Burnett during their temporary time as Maxie. Claudette (Bree Williamson) is going to be a first-class b–ch-on-wheels! I just loved her as Jessica Buchanan on One Life to Live (ABC-TV, 1968-2012). You know, she’s reunited with Roger Howarth (Franco), who played her uncle, Todd Manning, on OLTL,… Read more »

One thing I forgot to mention about the two temporary Maxie’s, is that Jen Lilley, after her temporary time as Maxie on GH, went on to play Theresa on Days of Our Lives, and dyed her hair, from blonde to red, for that role. Molly Burnett came in the opposite direction. She first played Melanie on Days of Our Lives, and then came to GH, to play Maxie temporarily, and left her hair as it was on Days of Our Lives, a sort-of, reddish brown.

I also often wonder whatever happened to two other actresses who played Maxie on GH?! Robyn Richards, who played Maxie for quite a while, and Danica Stewart, who played Maxie for a little while?! They both seem to have disappeared, and we really don’t hear anything about the two of them at all. The only thing I know is that after Danica Stewart left GH, she went on to play the fourth, and final, Jessica Bennett on the long-defunct supernatural soap opera, Passions (NBC-TV, 1999-2007; DIRECTV, 2007-2008). Other than this, I have no idea where these two actresses are now,… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What Does Franco Have Planned For Peter … The Ultimate Revenge?

This week on General Hospital, the story picks back up on the night of the double-wedding debacle for Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton).

Last week’s Friday cliffhanger saw Franco (Roger Howarth) taking a crowbar to Peter’s head and knocking him out after realizing the voice in his head was that of Peter’s.

Meanwhile, Maxie who is in the hospital trying to ensure the safety of her unborn baby with Peter, is getting an earful on how far his deception has gone, and from all the people she knows and trusts.  Now, Anna (Finola Hughes) comes to see her God-daughter in the latest promo from ABC.

But the twist that many may, or may not, have seen coming is that Franco has taken Peter and tied him up which looks eerily familiar from when Franco’s mind-mapping took place and he was turned into Drew.

With Franco’s growing brain tumor, what is he capable of doing to Peter? Will he exact the perfect revenge on the guy?

Watch the latest teaser below.

Now weigh-in: what do you think Franco will do next? Share your theories in the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton and Finola Hughes Deliver the ‘Power Performances of the Week’

It was an emotional week of episodes on General Hospital as the double-wedding of Finn (Michael Easton) and Anna (Finola Hughes), and Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) took a double nose-dive.

Each installment left us wondering if either couple would actually get hitched, but when Finn and Anna were the first to combust and not Peter and Maxie, it set the stage for two beloved soap veterans to once again, remind us all, why they are always at the top of the game when required to play high drama that tugs at the heartstrings.

In story, Finn is gut-punched, (and no one can play that better than Michael Easton), when Anna reveals that she knew that Peter was not her biological son and had done all the horrific deeds he has been hiding, in an effort to stop Maxie from marrying Peter.  When Finn realizes Anna confided in Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), and they were working together to bring Peter down it was too much for him to take.

Finn walks out on their wedding.  Alone and with tears welling up in his eyes, Finn feels his chance at love is dashed again.  Add to the fact, he has DNA results to prove if he is Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father and not his brother, or not, and the guy has been through the wringer of late.

As for Anna, she has literally imploded her own life, while trying to save others, after realizing the error of her ways; constantly putting her faith in Peter.  When she comes to visit Finn, she knows no matter what she says to Finn it looks bad.  She sees how she has hurt him, and hopes they can still repair their now fractured relationship, but she has to stop Peter and help her God-daughter, Maxie from making the biggest mistake of her life, so she leaves him to go back to the scene of the double-wedding.

Later in the week, Anna shares a heartfelt scene with her ex Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers), whom she knows she can have an honest conversation knowing her life of espionage and their shared history.  Meanwhile, Jackie (Kim Delaney) and Finn’s pull is there as well, as it appears Jackie’s attraction to Finn still remains all these years later when he visits her shortly after being blindsided by Anna at the nuptials.

Throughout the week, Easton and Hughes played all the nuances of their character’s emotional life, as the audience witnessed which just might be the end of the line for Finn and Anna.

For all of these reasons and more, Michael Fairman TV names Michael and Finola’s work, The Power Performances of the Week.

So, let us know, what did you think of what happened to Finn and Anna? The double-wedding fiasco? Did you enjoy Michael and Finola’s scenes? Comment below.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
