In the latest episode of her podcast,IN with Linda Dano (ex-Felicia AW, et al), the Daytime Emmy-winning fan favorite welcomes her former on-screen daughter, Alicia Coppola (ex-Lorna) for a heart-to-heart conversation.

As Another World viewers know, Linda and Alicia delivered some of the most compelling moments in soap history as Felicia Gallant and Lorna Devon. In story, Lorna was the ‘bad girl’, until it was revealed that she turned out to be Felicia’s biological daughter who had been stolen from her decades earlier.  Over time, the mother/daughter duo found peace and acceptance with one another.

In real-life, Coppola viewed Dano, and still does, as her “mom.” During her guest appearance on Linda’s podcast, Coppola talks about her beginnings on Another World, and how she came in with an ‘edge’, and why.  The two also discuss how their personal relationship blossomed and how they have stayed so close all these years later.

Alicia has gone to success in television series and motion pictures, and married Anthony Michael Jones back in 1999. General Hospital fans will recognize Jones from his recurring role as Father Coates from 2002-2012. The couple have three daughters together. Anthony makes a surprise visit to the podcast, and shares more about his relationship with Alicia.

Meanwhile, the topic of the current actors and writers strikes in Hollywood was an important part of the discussion. Most notably, how challenging it is for actors and writers to know what the future of the industry is at this time, and the impact it can have on their livelihoods; which also calls for industry talent to find other ways to be creative.

In case you need a refresher, check out this scene below of Felicia telling Lorna that she is her biological mother from Another World!

Now let us know, do you think Linda and Alicia were one of the best mother/daughter combos of all-time on the soaps? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

2 of my all time favorites the clip below was pure gold as Lorna learns that she’s Felicia’s daughter another world was one of the best love Linda Dano and love Alicia who was from my home town Golden

We only got bits & pieces of Another World down here in Hell, so I really don’t remember the storyline, but I hope they had more evidence of her being the mother than a dime on a necklace. That’s almost as weak as that half-hearted WalMart necklace that Nina thought was proof she was Nelle’s mother on GH.

When Alicia, Chris Bruno, Ricky Paul Goldin and Alla Korot were on AW the show was so good I just loved it. Also Matt Crane.

Would love if she spoke with Victoria Wyndham and Matt Crane as they have seemed to vanish from the public eye

I would love that too. She had Anna Stuart on recently so check that out if you haven’t. I love Linda interviewing people she should have another talk show.

General Hospital’s John J. York Reveals Potential Transplant Donor: “I Believe They Found a Match”

Promising news for General Hospital’s John J. York (Mac Scorpio). The actor who went public with his health battle shared Friday on Good Morning America that a life-saving blood stem cell transplant donor may have been located.

An emotional York told GMA, “I believe they found a match, perfect match, which will make me cry.  So we’re going to start our testing and do all that kind of stuff coming up here in about a week, and then I believe the transplant will happen, fingers crossed, in November.”

Through his association with the Be The Match organization, York located the now potential donor to help in his fight against myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders. “

York went on to explain the difficulties he faced in trying to find a match: “Many of my family members were tested and most of them were 6 out of 12; apparently there’s markers that have to be reached. So they were on standby.”

When asked just what the GH fan favorite would want to say if given the opportunity to speak to the donor that appears to be a match, in tears, John expressed: “Thank you for saving my life. For letting me spend more time with my wife and my daughter and my son-in-law and my grandchildren and seeing this beautiful blue sky.”

John has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years and until recently had kept his battle with these two blood cancers private, but came forward to clarify why he is taking time away from GH, and how he is been trying to find a life-saving donor match.

Watch York’s segment from GMA below.

Now, share your thoughts and well-wishes as John awaits the test results from his potential donor, to hopefully undergo this life-saving transplant in November via the comment section.

Never count out Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton)! After her termination at Deception, and following her grandmother Tracy Quartermaine’s (Jane Elliot) blackmailing scheme, BLQ is set to bounce back.

How will she do it? Now comes word from Soap Opera Digest that Brook Lynn will once again go back into the music business when Blaze hires her to be her manager.  This will bring actress and singer, Jacqueline Grace Lopez back to General Hospital to reprise her role as Blaze.

The last time viewers saw Blaze was back on the April 17th episode of GH, when Blaze surprised Chase (Josh Swickard) by turning up to speak on his behalf in front of the PCPD review committee.  Throughout her initial run as the character, Blaze was tormented by that creep of a manager, Linc.  She also became good friends with Chase when they sang together on multiple occasions, and revealed her real name was actually, Allison.
