Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

Photo: ABC

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

I love Nancy Lee and her stories are usually interesting and inspiring. More women should have her talent, intelligence and integrity especially the ones that are so critical of her.

Violet…I agree with you. I just wish she could have some happiness and fun like when she first came to Port Charles. Loved her stories back then with Ned and Jax. But it seems the writers and/or her unconscious demons from the past won’t leave her alone these last few years. And losing her ability to practice law was way too harsh.

I like Dante’s doctor better. Hope he comes back with him. I think he and Alexis could be a good match.

I guess Iam replying to my own comment concerning Dante’s Dr I could not believe what I was seeing and hearing the other day as he professed his undying love to Dr O. Then she calls him a pig after he leaves the room? What was that about? I was hoping he would be coming home with Dante, but did not have a real idea in what capacity. I hope he will go after Peter even if it is to please his Liesel.

I just don’t see how any one… who’s a parent… can stomach this – she kowtows wilts AND is the lamest at doling out advice… save for; be a woman’ advocate. FINE ALL GOOD and WELL w/Sam : how can she keep a straight face as Sam acts like the parent and not the other way around. I hate the way Sam treats Julian. perhaps it’s Alexis AWE how Sam wears skin tight form fitting leather spanks with stilleto. Sam is soooo driven, right? w/Kristina : oh god… what an insult the debacle Kristina went over the cliff over Shiloh.… Read more »

I do too, but Iam afraid they will make a drunken mistake that they will both regret. As we know Soaps keep nothing hidden.

No one dislikes the actress she is always on top of her game! I can’t watch her because she can’t stop with the politics day and night she is at it! For gosh sakes can we not live in peace do you have to bring politics in sports soaps movies ?? Can’t you give us one bloody moment that we can breathe and enjoy the moment ?? That is my only gripe leave me alone let me enjoy one minute!

You’re right, Kay—Nancy is one skilled thespian. I just wish TPTB would give Alexis the life she deserves with the right guy, and makebit last with or without flaws. Instead of putting the character on the right track, they consistently lead her to the top of the proverbial precipice to then have her fall, one way or another. Enough with the drinking already. We’ve visited this scene too many times.. .. It has lost its luster!!

PS—I have learned to separate the actresses/actors from the characters. And, I do not ever read or listen to anyone who is ill-informed or uneducated in politics, who act all knowing and pretentious. Most Americans don’t even know their own history, thus, how can we expect them to know global history? —-so, my dear Kay, what’s the point?
Nonetheless, I understand your position.

What a ride, indeed. Alexis is one of those characters who is stuck in a vicious circle—-neither here nor there—-keeps going—one mistake after another—changes men as often as changing her nether-garments and always ends up in the same rut ( pardon the pun), the bottle. No end and no beginning. As boring as watching Martha Stewart (for me, at least).

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
