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.

Do we think he is going to be gay???

He’s a male nurse. Probably gay.

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

Is Lucas coming back?

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.

SUSAN

agree need to focus on budget and vets we love to see

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
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…)…

Is he an alien?

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.
………hmmmmm ?

Excellent possibility Lisa! He could be Justice’s son???

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
Cindy

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!

Need more One Lifers on the show…Not new people..

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?

Robert

Agreed, more OLTL charachter, no more newbies!

Cindy

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!!

Marisa

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 absolutely agree!

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 characters and/or acting with good story lines.

This makes no sense. What’s with all the new characters. GH is starting to get overcrowded.

I don’t know about another new character???????????? I rather see the charcters we know and loved , and haven’t seen for quite a while….Like Bobbie for example!

April Dawn

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!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely worthless. More worthless than Sabrina and Britt, and Trey.

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 possibly another person to represent the gay community. And hopefully give more opportunity for even more screen time from some of our favorites!

Mitchell1660

I agree.

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… Trey’s on his way out and they’ve got some new storyline coming up…. fine with me.

Robert

How about bring Natalie to deal with John McBain, only to have her fall for AJ!! Oh Niki Smith needs to come and help Sonny deal with Connie/Kate too!

Maggie

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 her name; don’t like her.

Mitchell1660

Oh, I’m sure Felix is definitely going to be gay…

i am getting to the point i dont want to watch they a bringing in to meany new characters. if i want to see Kelly Sullivan or anyone else i will just wait for spmepne to post them. i cant even keep track of what is going on with all the storylines and why are they fireing people who have been on fpr a while just to bring in a brand new character no one cares about. there are already way to meany story lines to keep track of and now they are adding yet another. this is way too much. the only story line that still makes sense to me is the Kate and Sonny one the rest are just plain all over the place if this keeps up i will walk away i have done it before and the only storyline i will be watching is Sonny/Kate. i like most of the chacters but this is just to much.

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.

Dave Blackstone

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…

Ingo Rademacher Back To General Hospital As Jax

What a fun reveal by General Hospital and Ingo Rademacher!  And with that, look who’s coming home to Port Charles?  Hot on the heels of his stop over at The Bold and the Beautiful where he took over the role of Thorne Forrester, the GH fan favorite is back at his old stomping grounds.

So, will Jax be back in Carly’s arms or someone else’s? What will happen when Josslyn (Eden McCoy) reunites with her father?  Will Jax be involved in a major mystery?

Dominic Zamprogna Making A Return To General Hospital

After posting a photo from an empty dressing room, Dominic Zamprogna certainly had General Hospital fans interest piqued!  Turns out, Zamprogna is back shooting at the ABC daytime drama series for what it appears to be a short appearance and reprising his role as Dante Falconeri.

As fans know, Dominic departed GH in 2018, after 9 years in the role.  In the photo he posted on social media, Zamprogna is in one of GH’s temporary dressing rooms for the day.  His original dressing room was re-assigned to Josh Swickard (Chase), when Dom exited the show.

The last time viewers saw Dante was in the Sonny-centric episode; where Dante is the mobster and Sonny is by the book.

In current GH story, the character of Dante has been recently mentioned following his wife, Lulu (Emme Rylan) being stabbed by serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom).  Dante’s parents, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) also discussed his whereabouts. Dante had gone undercover on a major case after leaving Port Charles.

From all reports, it seems that Dominic is making a short return, but it will be more than just a one-day stint.  So, stay tuned.

So, will Dante return to Lulu’s side? Do you hope Dominic’s return means more down the line? Comment below.

TONIGHT: GH’s Maurice Benard As John Gotti In Lifetime’s ‘Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter’

Fans and colleagues of Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) have been eagerly waiting to see the General Hospital star take on the role of famous mobster, John Gotti. Well, tonight (February 9th) is the night!  Make sure to watch the Daytime Emmy-winner in Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter on Lifetime at 8pmEST/7CST.

In the log lines for the movie. it relates: “Executive produced by Victoria Gotti herself, the movie takes us deep into the world of what it was really like to grow up as the daughter of mob boss John Gotti, revealing the glamour, glitz and unique hardships of her world.  Sharing never-before-revealed stories about her life, Victoria (Chelsea Frei) tells of a sensitive child growing up with a beloved father (Maurice Benard) she worried about constantly; the tragedy of her younger brother’s death; and her turbulent romance, forbidden by her father, with the man who later became her husband.  Victoria had a front-row seat to a life the world became fascinated with, all while trying to reconcile the loving father she adored with a man the outside world was determined to bring down. . The film is based on Gotti’s book This Family of Mine: What It Was Like Growing Up Gotti.  Victoria Gotti will appear on camera narrating.

Benard spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth about taking on the role and wanting to get the performance just right, where he expressed: “That’s up to the audience to decide.  I played him like a real-life guy who’s loyal to his people and loves his family — and that’s kind of what the story is about. It’s through Victoria’s eyes and told with complete compassion.”

Photo: Lifetime

As to how playing Gotti compared to his role as Port Charles’ loveable mobster, Sonny Corinthos, Maurice added: “When I was shooting the role, I didn’t really know how different it was from Sonny. But my last day, I wrapped at about 1 in the morning in Canada, flew back and went straight to work as Sonny. I remember shooting the scene and thinking, ‘Wow, Sonny’s in about second gear, Gotti’s in about fourth or fifth gear!’ It’s two different energies.”

Check out the promo for tonight’s Lifetime Movie starring Maurice as John Gotti below, and the let us know if you will be watching, and if you caught it, what you thought of Maurice’s performance, and the movie via the comment section below.
