Carly – best female character in daytime?! No way in hell!!! She’s white trash. Anna Devane is the best character in soap!

They are all mentioning Jason more on GH and I am sensing a recast… unfortunately… I am not excited about ME as Jason. If I had to recast and I love SB and would rather not… I would choose… only if he comes back as Jason Quartermaine and not Morgan… Roger Howarth or Trevor St. John! Please not ME.

thank you, Michael, for doing and posting this interview. I love LW’s chemistry with RoHo. I hope they’re paired up again when he returns. I hope LW wins the Emmy again.

nice interview…Laura seems down-to-earth. I always find it interesting how the viewer can “suspend their disbelief”…meaning we’re able to get engrossed in a story and a fictional character…even after seeing/hearing/meeting/reading about the actors who portray them. Of course not just in soaps, in all fictional works. I also breathe a sigh of relief…LOL…when I actually like the way an actor comes off in real life.. When I don’t…it ruins whatever story they’re in for me. Thanks Michael!

If you check out Soaptown’s Loose Lips column it speculates that RH will be coming back as Alexander Quartermaine who is the son of Alexandria (Alex) Quartermaine and Anthony (Tony) Cassadine. That would be a delicious character that RH would be phenomenal at playing and he could easily get into Carly’s orbit and she could be a Q again down the road. There are other great speculations in this column that are really fun to speculate about. Soon to be five Q’s coming to the Q mansion and two are already in town… I speculate Ellie is a Q and… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
