‘National Geographic’ Renowned Photographer, Joel Sartore, Visits General Hospital

Photo: ABC

This week, the citizens of Port Charles get to meet National Geographic’s one and only Joel Sartore, when the famous photographer has an exhibit of his work at Ava Jerome’s (Maura West) art gallery,

For more than 15 years, Sartore has traveled the world photographing wildlife in mesmerizing works, much of which can now be showcased through his Photo Ark project.

The project has been a 25-year labor of love from Sartore in his effort to photograph and document every species under human care around the world which includes: zoos, aquariums, wildlife sanctuaries, and more.

GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini ,is a huge fan of Sartore’s work, having purchased many of his signed prints for his own collection.

Hence, it was Valentini who reached out to National Geographic about a potential Sartore appearance on the ABC daytime drama series.  The set-up would be … the Jerome Gallery would host an exhibition featuring Sartore’s Photo Ark prints.

Once the timing was worked out in Sartore and the GH production schedule, Joel had to learn his lines.

According to the Lincoln Journal Star, Joel shared: “I had them memorized, and then the lights came up and I froze up. I’ll tell you, it wasn’t pretty. I’m going to get the Emmy for the most wooden performance.”

The photographer added how impressed he was at the quality of the work from everyone at GH, when having to deliver a product at such a fast pace: “I was amazed by how hard those people work … the cast and crew tore through 125 pages of script. A big-budget, prime-time TV show averages six or seven pages a day.”

Look for Sartore and the gallery exhibit at Ava’s, tomorrow on the Tuesday, November 16th episode of GH.

Below, check out a preview released by ABC.

It is a wonderful idea. Soaps should bring real world awareness.

Hmm I just stopped and thought about what I just typed…

Would give anything to see the original All MY CHILDREN episodes concerning Erica Kane’s start… her choice regarding her pregnancy and end results… would be a good refresh in today’s times.

Nicely done.

This is a logical extension of location (Jerome Gallery), business (ELQ) and storyline (Ned/Olivia reconciliation, Trina’s business acumen.) And, it’s not a blatant Disney plug.

Not only a great presentation but so many problems addressed and hopefully,solved. Of course only Esme, the bitch could have caused a real medical emergency. One surprise, Gladys acting almost human and like a concerned grandmother with Sasha.

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud Deliver One-Two Punch as Britt & Carly Grieve the Loss of Jason

When General Hospital goes for the emotional jugular, it is very often top-notch daytime drama, and that was on full display through Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series in key scenes as the news of Jason’s ‘death’ hit Port Charles.

In the wake of Steve Burton’s (Ex-Jason) dismissal from the show for not adhering to the vaccine mandate, it did open up the story and provide for a huge fallout for those who loved the mob hitman.

In the end, it was Carly (Laura Wright) and Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), who seemingly felt the loss the hardest.  Initially, upon learning how Jason ‘died’ helping Britt locate her mother, Liesl (Kathleen Gati), a defiant Carly blamed Britt for Jason never coming home.

In Wednesday’s episode, we saw how Carly and Britt tried to cope with the knowledge that Jason was buried under a rubble in a cave, with no sign of life, or his body found.

Overwhelmed with grief, Carly heads to the footbridge to be close to the spirit of Jason and to mourn him as tears flow.  She is stunned to see Britt show up there, too.  Carly is surprised that Britt even knew about the bridge that Jason had rebuilt thank to a generous donation from him.  Britt tells Carly that she and Jason had a lot of time to talk while they were on the run.  After Carly explains that Jason was her person and had been her other half, Britt offers to leave. S he expresses that she thought coming to the bridge would make her feel closer to Jason.

Then, in a heartbreaking moment, Britt assures Carly that she blames herself for what happened to Jason and hates herself.  Then, Carly has a moment of clarity that Jason would want her to forgive Britt.  Generous thoughts never come naturally to Carly, but Jason always set her straight on how to handle life’s most difficult situations.

In the final moments of the episode, with both women in tears, Britt moves to the center of the bridge with her arm around Carly, after Carly tells her she doesn’t want her to go.  The two stand together bonded over the man they both loved.

These scenes were masterfully played by Laura Wright and Kelly Thiebaud. They were gut-wrenching, powerful, and sad all at the same time.  We think many viewers needed several hankies during these scenes.

So, what did you think of the Carly and Britt bridge scenes …. and the work of Laura and Kelly? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
