Michael Saucedo (pictured here with wife, Rebecca Herbst), who ABC confirmed is heading back to General Hospital has been overwhelmed by the response from fans on the return of his character of Juan Santiago who has been off the canvas for almost 13 years!

To acknowledge all of the love and show of support from GH fans, Saucedo took to his Twitter account where he related:  “WOW! Thank you, thank you for all of the wonderfully kind comments I have received about my return to General Hospital. It has been torture sitting on this secret for the last few weeks. To say I’m excited would be an understatement. @valentinifrank and @carlivatiron – it’s an honor to be a part of a show that means so much to so many. Thank you for thinking of me. #GH50 #Gratitude

Look for Saucedo show up on the canvas sometime in November!  We have an idea of what brings him back to the show, do you?  And, what about pairing Juan with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)?  Let us know your thoughts!

Maybe for Sabrina’s wedding? Which hopefully in true soap fashion will be interrupted by Robin!!

An interrupted wedding is too predictable…i want Robin to show up but before she can reveal herself she is captured by Faison and Dr.O and returned to Cassidine Island…I want Patrick and Sabrina to wed without any interuption…they go on a honeymoon…Patrick and Sabrina are on a boat that becomes shipwrecked and the newlyweds find they are on what they first believe is a deserted island but it turns out to be Cassidine Island where they then finally come face-to-face with Robin and Jerry Jaxs other hostages…this would be more exciting and suspenseful than another predictable wedding interuption…of course they’ll… Read more »

Juan with Elizabeth was my first thought! Will be so cool for their children to see them on screen together!

Other than a momentary “Hi” scene I’m sure we won’t see Becky. This writing regime has little use for the character of Liz and can’t stop talking about her “baggage” as an excuse. Liz has no more baggage than any other character on the screen and yet she is the only one they can’t seem to write a story for. I’m glad that Michael is back. But I am sure that since Juan is connected with Sabrina, I’m sure he will get way more airtime than his extremely popular, yet constantly undervalued wife.

Liz has become todays version of Jessie Brewer…stands behind a nurses counter with very little to do but listen to other peoples problems and give advice…i really liked her with A.J.

i agree with you about this regime, i’m so dissappointed that liz isn’t a major character, actress Rebeca Herbts is so beautifull, you would think all the men on the show would be falling for her or something yet, nothing. i’m hoping she get put with Nicolas, and i don’t mind her with a.j but this regime needs to stop with the lame excuses and put her front and center.

This 70 year old Grandma is thrilled to have Michael back on the show. Now is the time for the writers to get their act together and spin a compelling storyline for Elizabeth and Juan. Becky has many frustrated fans who are tired of her being put on the backburner, and what better way to correct this than to put her front and center with her handsome real life hubby!

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
