Michael E. Knight Makes His General Hospital Debut In Scenes Opposite Chloe Lanier

When we heard the one and only Michael E. Knight was coming to General Hospital, not only did we jump for joy, but we, like many others, were wondering just what kind of new character would “Martin Grey” be, especially with that first name nod of Knight’s time as the iconic Tad Martin on All My Children.

Viewers got a glimpse of Knight as lawyer Martin Grey on Monday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, when he first appears visiting his prospective new client in prison, none other than Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier).

When Nelle meets Martin she informs him she needs him to help her get granted parole in her upcoming hearing.  He says he had not decided if he would take her case, especially when the two go over her list of crimes and how things look quite bleak for her.

Nelle tells the attorney that she feels like she’s paid enough and she’s been a model prisoner. She lays it on a bit thick with how it makes her sick to think of the pain she has caused everyone.  Of course, Nelle swears she can make amends with everyone she has wronged,  but she has to get out of the slammer first to do it.

And  …what do you know? By the end of their conversation, Martin agrees to represent Nelle.  And … the day gets better for Nelle when she learns that Shiloh died, too!

So, do you think Martin is on the up and up?  Will he be some shady lawyer?  Will he eventually blackmail or scheme with Nelle? So many questions! But first, were you thrilled to see Knight on GH? Comment below.

    I watched and couldn’t help noticing how powerful Michael and Chloe are opposite each other. I thought the scenes they did were great and looking forward to more. And especially watching how Michael is with other GH cast members. This may have been a great move for the show!!!

    He had just a crazy look in his eyes and I loved his subtle expressions. Who knows what’s up his sleeve. I do hope he screws over Nelle and we get to see her go wild before she’s carted off again.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
