Lindsay Hartley On Temporarily Replacing GH’s Kelly Monaco: “Some Big Shoes To Fill … Precious Too.”

When General Hospital returned to shooting new episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sam McCall looked a bit different temporarily and that’s because the role was played for a bit by soap veteran Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Passions, All My Children, and Days of our Lives).

Hartley has been subbing for series star, Kelly Monaco (Sam) and according to Daytime Confidential is filling in only for a few weeks in the role,

Lindsay tweeted when the news broke: “Some big shoes to fill…precious too. I hope you enjoy watching Sam as much as I have enjoyed playing her, temporarily.”

In addition on Friday, Monaco’s mom, took to Twitter and informed a fan of Kelly’s the status of her daughter’s health which was good news that she will be back (as it looks as of now) on Monday to tape new episodes of GH,

Carmina Monaco shared:”Kelly is great and should be back on set Monday. 14 day quarantine after a breathing problem with mask 1st day back. 3 negative Covid test, I’d say she is better than great. Thank you for all of the love,”

GH fans are eagerly awaiting new episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama series to begin airing, and they won’t have to wait much longer as this coming Monday, August 3rd, the story picks back up.

We look forward to Kelly’s return to the series in the role she made soap-famous, while Lindsay takes over to keep the character present in the storylines.

So, what do you think of Lindsay being the temp recast for Kelly? Glad to know Kelly is doing OK? Share your thoughts below.

I love Kelly Monaco, she is a great actress and some of us enjoy Jason and Sam and Carly and Sonny. If you don’t enjoy these legacy characters then don’t watch. I would not complain because there are so few soaps left abc few shows with new original content!

I honestly think they should have given the character a break. She’s kinda all over the place!

Hi Phil ..
I wish Lindsay would be a permanent replacement.
A couple of weeks isn’t enough..
The Sam character needs to be retired.
What once was no longer is..Sam is no longer relevant.
Sam and Jason are a huge bore empty couple.
Well, at the least I’ll have a couple of weeks without Sam.
I will enjoy !!!! 🙂

I disagree! There are characters that should never be recasted. Jane Elliot IS Tracy Quartermain, Genie Francis IS Laura Spencer but Sam is not one of those characters. If Carly could be recasted not once but three times so could Sam. This is only temporary though. I still maintain that Sam needs a break.

It’s a software bug of some sort. I’m getting 666 of these notices a week myself. On your typical message board software there would be a user settings panel where you could opt out of getting these sort of e mails. This board has no such user options, so best we can hope for is that Michael and/or his board moderators read this and switch that option off, on a global level (can’t imagine anybody would actually want to get those emails). My guess is that this was a default setting that reset itself after a software update, and there… Read more »

I liked Lindsay on Days back when she played the oldest of the Hernandez kids. Can’t really see her as Sam, but it’s just a temp gig so I’m not going to think too much about it.

This is more of an addition to my most recent comment. While liking Lindsay Hartley, I agree with most others that K.M IS Sam. We can not always see what others see, as in Sam and Jason, kind of like P.B and J, just goes together.
