Another newbie is coming to the younger hospital cast of characters when Marc Anthony Samuel joins General Hospital in the the contract role of Felix, a nursing student friend of Sabrina (Teresa Castillo).  Look for Samuel to first air on the Tuesday, December 4th episode!

From what he hear, Felix will be integral role in helping return the annual Nurse’s Ball charity event to General Hospital.   And, we have also heard some speculation and some rumblings that this new character may be part of an under-represented segment of characters on daytime, in more ways than one!

Primetime drama series fans may have caught Samuel this past week on NCIS on CBS as he appeared in two-part guest appearance of the popular police procedural drama!

So are you looking forward to seeing to hopefully getting the Nurses Ball on track and up and running?  Do you like Sabrina?  Even though Robin has Patrick’s heart, do you think Sabrina should get her chance on a date with Dr. Drake (Jason Thompson)? Do you hope Felix is a good guy, who helps Sabrina pull of the Nurses Ball? Let us know!

I like Sabrina a heck of a lot better than I like Britt, but no go on Patrick. I will forever love Robin and Patrick and want them to be together.

Hopefully the new character is gay,something we haven’t seen on GH since Lucas left.

Would love Lucas and BOBBIE!!!!! to come back. Please… Give me some Bobbie Spencer!

Makes sense with Nurses Ball and its role as an AIDS charity that Port Charles would have some gay people in the hospital halls.

Ugh. More newbies. Like there isn’t enough good stories to tell with the vets. Sanrina gets on my last nerve and Brit is just a jump magnet.

This is what frustrates me with Frank Valentini, he loves hiring newbies, nothing wrong with new characters, but the set he gets always cannot act, even since OLTL. He is doing good so far, why screw it up? Relax the budget with the current cast and vets we have.

I wish shows would concentrate on the vets and quit bringing in random newbies. My god, GH brought in Britt, Sabrina AND Ellie all in the same frigging day and they equally all annoy me and I wish all three would leave. And no, they can’t act.

SUSAN

i agree they all 3 should leave asap

MOST newbies can’t act when they get a job on a soap. But, it’s great training ground for them. This is a job to them, usually their first. Give them a break (although Jack on OLTL’s acting WAS unbearable…)…

I’m wondering – with Edward’s passing ….if this young man Felix doesn’t turn out to be another Quartermaine relative via Edward’s relationship with Mary Mae Ward.

I happen to love Sabrina & her interaction with Britt who is so mean. I thought it was really funny when Emma told Sabrina she didn’t like Britt! And of course we want Robin home with Patrick I would much rather have Patrick with Sabrina after a long slow sweet courtship than jumping in bed with shallow awful Britt.

Cindy
Guest

I like Sabrina and Felix. Definitely can do without Brit! She is a two-faced witch! LOL I would rather see Patrick with Sabrina. We know Robin isn’t coming back anytime soon, because Kimberly is concentrating on her directing career. That’s why she left in the first place. So, as far as anyone currently on the canvas, I think Patrick and Sabrina, Liz and AJ… although they may hook up AJ with Sam… hmmmmm lots of possibilities!

would rather see more prominent OLTL characters than random newbies any day of the week — or hey, how about more airtime for vets we already care about?? It’s quite obvious the whole Christina/Trey thing didn’t work so why do they think we’ll care about another bad actor?

I agree, however, I can see them bringing in Sabrina and Felix to spearhead/launch the Nurses’ Ball storyline. And OLTL didn’t have any nurses. I would love to see Rex and Gigi back!!

I like Sabrina. She is real and down to earth. I like Brit. She adds some spice. I would love to see Sabrina stand up to aggressive Brit.

I am all for old, new, and OLTL characters! It make the show more interesting.

I am guessing that he might be gay, but we will see…I love Sabrina, she is the only new character that I actually enjoy. I have to say that I also love the OLTL characters considering that they are the ones who drew me to GH to begin with. As I have said, they can bring on new characters, bring back vets, bring on characters from OLTL, AMC, or even Loving as long as there is GOOD story I will be there!

I figure he is going to be gay. I wish he were actually a part of the Quartermaine/Ward clan. I love how they made Sabrina a relative of Juan’s (and how she said that to Liz – who happens to have married the actor who played Juan!) and wish she was tied to others. Sabrina is nice and sweet and deserves her own love story eventually – after her crush with Patrick runs its course. We are supposed to dislike Britt, so good job – can’t stand her! Hopefully this new character comes with GOOD STORY. I can stomach crappy… Read more »

a) I like Sabrina, but would love to see what she looks like as a NON-nerd. b) Yes, would love to see her get a chance at Patrick,but only UNTIL Robin returns. c) Could care less about this new character!!!! Would love to see the return of Lucy Coe!!!!!!!!!!

Why is everyone complaining about another newbie??? The Quartermaines are back on the screen weekly. Heather was responsible for how much this past summer? Anna has not one, not two, but three former love interests on screen. Mac and Felicia will probably get more time with the Maxie-Lulu pregnancy. Like why, is it never good enough? Why instead of being grateful, we have to find SOMETHING to complain about??? Sheesh. The ratings are up. The storylines are moving along. We’ve seen almost every contracted character on a pretty regular basis. I welcome another character. Especially a character of color and… Read more »

i like Sabrina. she’s cute – much cuter than she appears, perhaps for the ball she’ll get a makeover, do something with tht hair and put some contacts in and then maybe Patrick will take more notice…. and how long do we have to wait to have him find out that gal who has the hots for him is not as great a catch as SHE thinks she is? what’s her name… the gal who wanted him to go to the hotel date with her. whatever. she’s not nice to Sabrina nor his daughter. I don’t mind another new guy…… Read more »

I’m assuming Felix is going to be gay…A storyline with Patrick/Sabrina would be them starting a relationship, and then Robin is found. But, unless Kimberley is going to be returning, they can’t put her and Patrick back together. But, there is no way she would be without Emma. I don’t know how that is going to get this worked out, unless Robin continues to be incarcerated indefinitely. I’m looking forward to the resurrection of the nurse’s ball. They were always fun episodes. Or maybe Felix is not gay? The he could hook up with Sabrina or that doctor; don’t know… Read more »

AHHH! This new Felix character makes me gag. Are there so few actors auditioning these days that you have to settle on those who cant act? Nothing that guy says is believable.

Felix is awesome and as the show goes along he’s just getting better. Made me laugh and seems less self-absorbed as the other characters, M. Samuel is one of the better actors – I want to see more of him with Sabrina and hopefully others.

Looking forward to seeing more scenes of Sabrina and Patrick together; especially watching the transformation of “the dull and boring Sabrina” to the gorgeous eye-popping, jaw-dropping Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), who will leave Patrick (Jason Thompson)speechless and completely awe-struck with her beauty. Going to be such fun to watch the magical love develop between Patrick and Sabrina and spill over onto the precious little girl, Emma!
Perhaps the “NURSES’ BALL” will get things rolling…

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Helps Sonny After Realizing He is Off His Meds

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital, will no doubt lead to Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Nina (Cynthia Watros) becoming closer, because she was witness, went through, and helped the mobster get help while he was having a manic episode after being off his meds for bipolar disorder.

A disheveled Sonny was outside insulating the kids’ treehouse, didn’t sleep all night, is not eating, and tells Nina – who stayed the night at the Corinthos’ home on the couch – that he feels great.  Then, he tells Nina to stop telling him what to do and to stay out of his way.

Nina panics and calls Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) at the hospital worried that Sonny is off his meds, and she needs medical advice on what to do about it.  Britt tells Nina it’s important to get Sonny to a doctor and not argue with him, but to get him to acknowledge he is having a manic episode.

After the call, Nina asks Sonny not to leave and to explain bipolar disorder to her. He replies it’s like a nightmare but that’s not what’s happening now. Then, he grabs her wrists hard as she stands at the door, as he wants to leave, and Nina tells him, she is hurting her.  Sonny has a moment of realization and insists he does not hurt women. Sonny asks Nina if she is now afraid of him?  She tells him she isn’t. All of a sudden, Sonny feels exhausted.  He sits with Nina and starts to cry and admits he has been off his meds.  She gets him to agree that he needs to see Dr. Sullivan and get a refill.

Sonny and Nina arrive at GH, and Britt shows them to an examining room. Nina wants to make sure he’s OK, before she exits, but Sonny wants to make sure he did not injure her wrists. Nina says she is OK, but you could tell she is emotional from the entire encounter she went through with Sonny.

Maurice Benard took to Twitter within the last 24 hours stating about the storyline which is throwing Sonny’s love life in turmoil and working opposite both Laura Wright (Carly) and Cynthia Watros: “I go where ever it is best for the show and fortunately right now this story is doing well, even better than well, now you may not want to hear that. You already know I love Laura and Cynthia. I keep saying this is between history and change, I think after 20 years change is good.”

So, what did you think of the scenes between Nina and Sonny? Do you agree with us that Nina seeing Sonny having a manic episode will draw them closer together? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

Photo: ABC

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

Courtesy/ABC

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Photo: ABC

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Courtesy/ABC

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

So, what did you think of Luke’s memorial episode? Favorite parts of it? Least favorite? Share your thoughts in the comment section. But first, check out Helena’s videotaped speech and Tracy’s eulogy to Luke below.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
