Lindsay Hartley Returns to GH Temporarily Filling In for Kelly Monaco

Photo: IMDB

Beginning on tomorrow’s Thursday, February 3rd episode of General Hospital, look for a return from soap vet, Lindsay Hartley (Ex-Theresa, Passions and Ex-Arianna, DAYS) when she once again takes over the role of Sam on the ABC daytime drama series.

Hartley was back and temporarily replacing Kelly Monaco, when Monaco took a brief break from her role in January.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Monaco is already back at the studio filming all-new episodes as Sam.

Lindsay last filled in for Kelly back in August of 2020.

In a tweet to Michael Fairman TV on Wednesday, Hartley shared: “I am very thankful for this opportunity. I am grateful to General Hospital and Kelly Monaco for trusting me again with such a special character that Kelly has created for the soap community and for the genre that is forever dear to me.”

Look for Hartley to appear in a few upcoming episodes.

So, looking forward to seeing Lindsay again as General Hospital’s Sam? Comment below.

Well said, S. Who knew Sam could be even more boring and less consequential? But this temp-replacement guarantees it.

This must be temp hire week over at GH. We had Temp Marshall, Temp Leo, and now Temp Sam.

Love her in the Lifetime movies. Glad she can fill in from time to time. Now GH bring Vincent Irizzary on as another Cassadine or even AMC David.

HALLELUJAH!!
Sam is worn out uck; no longer what she was 100yrs ago–
Speaking for myself- Sam is very hard to tolerate.
Thanky god I’ll get a break from her.
I remember Lindsay as Sam and she was/is a keeper, for sure.
Looking forward to seeing her again.

If wishes came true then Lindsay would permanently replace kelly

Iam a long time fan of Lindsay from AMC. I would love any role she got her teeth into.

Just another thought from my previous post. Seeing her today acting kind of playful, too happy to play Sam who always seems like she has a stick planted too far to reach, What a difference!

I dont mind Kelly. BUT, Lindsay and Cameron Matheson would have a ton more chemistry together!

Agree, but afraid he might be getting too close to Carly. I was starting to like him and hate seeing him get tangled up with her.

She brings energy to all of her roles. Sam is unrecognizable as played by her…in a very good way.

Only three episodes and the amount of sheer emotion and attitude Lindsay Korman-Hartley has brought back into the role of Sam McCall is refreshing. I’ve never seen so much agreement for a temporary recast, and the desire to make her hiring permanent.

It is high-time TPTB bring on Cara Castillo. Ms. Korman-Hartley should not be off soaps.

Hartley makes Sam fun and rootable. Not sure they can bring on any AMC characters with the potential “Pine Valley” series still under consideration. Perhaps Sarah Webber or a recast Hayden Barnes (if TPTB don’t want to bring Budig back).

I could almost see her as a Sarah recast…. though Sarah was always a blonde so she might have to bleach her hair. But I’d really rather see her go back to Days, where she might be able to extract both of her siblings’ heads from their respective craniums.

I don’t see why they couldn’t bring on All My Children characters, which I would think would increase Disney-ABC’s chances of bringing Pine Valley to life in primetime.

And, in truth, I don’t se Korman-Hartley working in either the role of Sarah or Hayden. Truthfully, I’d rather see Rebecca Budig resume her role as Hayden, and I would love to see Bethany Joy Lenz cast as Sarah.

Finn Carr is General Hospital’s New Rocco Falconeri

Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu’s son, Rocco is getting a new look! Enter young actor, Finn Carr, who will take over the role on-air beginning this week.

Carr is very familiar to TV fans who have watched Hot in Cleveland, Fuller House, Criminal Minds and more.  He has also appeared in streaming series for Netflix including Alexa & Katie, and most recently in an episode of Paramount+’s, I Carly.

Now that Rocco is a bit older (with Carr taking over the role), will he figure more into the story of Dante/Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) relationship, and the arrival of Dante’s buddy, Cody (Josh Kelly) on to the Port Charles scene?

The role of Rocco was first played by twins through 2017. Since then, Mason Tannous, O’Neill Monahan, and Brady Bauer have all played the part at one time or another.  In story, it was actually Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) who carried baby Rocco when she was implanted with Dante and Lulu’s stolen embryo.

Soap Opera Digest first reported this latest ‘Rocco’ casting switch in their latest issue on newsstands now.

So, please welcome Finn to the cast of GH in the comment section below!
