I Miss Him…

I’m so happy Nathan mentioned his start at One Life to Live. Nathan did a great job as Joey. He’s so right. Working with Erika Slezak and Robin Strasser, if you’ve got an ounce of smarts, how could you possibly fail? I loved the Joey and Dorian storyline. It was shocking when it started. My reaction was the same as Viki’s in the beginning. As the story evolved, Joe grew into adulthood and Dorian grew to genuinely care for Joe. There was mutual care and respect between them for the rest of the series.

Nathan Fillion is the only actor I have ever heard be so honestly appreciative of his soap background. I applaud his gratefulness and openness to talk freely of his OLTL experience.

Hey, maybe he’s talking now because he wants to come on another soap. BTW, what’s he doing now that his primetime show is gone–and gone, perhaps, if we are to believe ANY of the leaked gossip about the in-fighting of the two stars (one of them, notably, Fillion himself), because he was a prime reason why it is gone. Too bad that egos can destroy such a beloved show. Professionals should be able to work together for the success of the show and to reward the loyal fans of the show. Look out for what you wish for; it might… Read more »

Personally, I didn’t watch his prime time show “Castle” because I didn’t find his co-star likable. Nor did I see the chemistry between their characters. I’ve always thought maybe she was the problem star. I based my earlier comments on other interviews he has done in print and on TV. He got along with his previous co-stars. After all his “Firefly” and OLTL co-stars even appeared on “Castle.”

I have liked Nathan in everything he has been in starting with Joey on OLTL. I don’t even know if they were using the term cougar yet back then. But especially Firefly, Serenity and a really bad guy, Preacher, in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The there is Castle. One thing I really liked about Castle is that there were guest appearances of actors from his previous shows, including the soaps…with Susan Sullivan (Another World) playing his mother Martha Rogers. What a wise mom, diva flair she had. And as I mentioned under the Kassie return to Days story, maybe current… Read more »

I love Susan Sullivan–have since she was on the soaps. She, unlike others I could mention, seems the consummate professional. And now she no longer has a job on the primetime show we loved so much.

I loved this and Nathan has always shown his respect for OLTL and I love that.

Wish he had shown more respect for his own show. (Sigh!) Egos CAN and DO get out of hand, don’t they?

Does this ego thing seem like deja vu? Shall I again refer to ugly happenings by another “star,” namely one who left GH about a year or so ago–and who left other people’s egos on the floor–where he stomped on them with his petty tantrums. But Genie is thriving and looking more relaxed and radiant than ever with her fan base intact and her ego firmly in check. Brava, Genie!

He was awesome as Joey especially when his mom, Viki, was having one of her breakdowns. He was also very good in the movie, “Waitress”. He seems like such a nice guy.

What I remember most about that storyline is the way Dorian would lovingly (lustfully?) say, “Joe,” when everyone else was calling him “Joey.” I get it: she saw him as a man and wanted to use the more formal version of his name. But the relationship between Dorian and Joe brought out a tenderness in Dorian, giving her shades of grey — was it 50 shades of grey?!

YES! YES! YES! & she always somehow elongated “Joe…”

Love Nathan. He has always spoken so highly of his start in daytime. I remember when Dorian and Joey had their affair. WOW! That was before it was hot to be a “cougar.” Now, that was some great daytime, lunchtime television and storytelling. I miss those days, those stories. On another note, can’t stand Kelly Ripa. Sorry, just can’t. So fake.

I saw that episode and it was great that such a talented actor gave credit to his OLTL roots! He also had a small part in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN at that time also credited hid soap roots enabling him to cry on que!

Cameron Mathison Shares He Will Make Summer Debut On GH and Says: “Incredibly Grateful to Frank Valentini and the Writers at GH for Including Me on Such an Iconic Show”

Longtime All My Children favorite and current co-host of Hallmark’s Home & Family, Cameron Mathison, took to his Instagram account on Friday to share his enthusiasm and excitement for what’s to come this summer when he joins ABC’s General Hospital.

No word yet as to what role Mathison will play – and whether it will indeed be Pine Valley’s Ryan Lavery, a new character, or a recast character from the past such as how Kim Delaney took over the role of Jackie Templeton, who has not been seen on the canvas for decades since Demi Moore made that role soap-famous.

In his post today, Cameron expressed thanks to GH EP Frank Valentini and the writing team,  noting: “Almost 10 years after All My Children went off the air I am so excited to be joining General Hospital this summer! I was a member of the abc family for over 15 years and soon I’ll be back: Incredibly grateful to Frank Valentini and the writers at GH for including me on such an iconic show I feel like a kid on Christmas, as I’ll also continue making Hallmark movies and continue to be part of that family as well😀🙏🏼 So so excited… thank you!!!! (More details to come😉)”

So, who do you think Cameron will play once he hits Port Charles?  Let us know and make sure to take our poll below on how you want Mathison to be integrated into the story as Ryan, a new character or a recast character blast from the past? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
