I hope ABC is truly committed to GH, and not using its 50th anniversary hoopla just to generate publicity for its news and talk shows. Otherwise i wouldnt mind watching them. Meanwhile a columnist did a story in our local newspaper about watching GH when she was a kid and how her and her sister have tuned in for GHs 50th!

But I’m still loving my fave- faves including Carly, Sam, Liz, Maxie and Luke!!! And it’s awesome having AJ back plus his blossoming relationship w/Liz. THIS SHOW IS THE BEST!

Should have kept AMC and OLTL on the air. I have loved the 50th episodes. Watched the episode about BJ’s death and cried just like I did years ago. They should figure out a way to bring Tony and Alan back. I miss both characters.

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.
