Burgess Jenkins (Billy) / a huge fail, to me..

Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) so far so good.. (still not thee Red, but OK..

su0000 doesn’t it just tear at the very fabric of all that is true and good to have to relinquish any lingering negative thoughts of GT as Phyllis. Now people will clamor for either GT or MS whenever the character goes off on extended leave and returns. That didn’t even happen for the Jill Abbot recasts…we wanted Brenda Dickson back in all her glory and she will always be the definitive Jill but we love JessWalton…this time…altogether different. Why Burgess Jenkins continues to appear is a mystery. He has the Abbot look so that’s all I can figure. Never has… Read more »

Dave, you forgot the quintessential smiley face. I honestly cannot understand anyone declaring that a recast will be dead in the water before they’ve even been given a chance? Maybe, just maybe, the new Adam will be a hit. As I recall when the first Adam vacated the role and Michael Muhney was cast, a collective roar of outrage could be heard coming from the bleachers. ‘No, no one can else can play Adam!” And then Michael happened. SU000, I will give you an A + for inconsistency. You claimed Phyllis could not be recast but now you admit (without… Read more »

Oh, Su…you just like Joe !!!! How dare you just like?????….LOL.

I think Gina is doing a great job with Phyllis so far. As for Justin, I’m really hopeful that he’ll do well in the role of Adam. After all, I don’t think they would have hired him if he wasn’t up to par for the role. I really like Scott and I’m looking forward to seeing where Joe’s story goes from here – I think he’ll be Matt Clark’s brother and it will somehow tie into the return of Amy Wilson… As for Burgess… words can’t describe how disappointed I am in his casting. He sounds like he’s reading the… Read more »

I too once said Justin shouldve played Billy with Burgess as Joe and the actor playing Joe shouldve been Adam…

Gotta agree about the Billy recast. It’s been disappointing and I have a hard time buying him as a romantic lead. He just seems flat and awkward to me but MCE saves the whole thing. She’s really working overtime to sell it. AH doesn’t seem even bother putting much into it in the Villy scenes. I’m really excited about JH though. He’s always been great at interviews so it should be good. I’ve also enjoyed Gina’s performance and Scott Elrod is ok so far. His delivery is a little bit dull but he is very good looking and his character… Read more »

So very excited to see Justin Hartley in action as Adam.

I think Burgess Jenkins had a rough transition as Billy but he is growing on me. I really loved his scenes with little Sophie on Tuesday and he has incredible chemistry with Melissa Claire Egan.

I love Gina but she’s not Phyllis to me. I loved Phyllis because she was this fiery loose cannon who was her own worst enemy not a cold and calculating terminator.

Haven’t seen enough of Joe Clark to have an opinion.

Give Gina time, I’m sure she’ll become Phyllis for you. Trust me, I felt the same way because Michelle Stafford has always been Phyllis, but I think Gina is doing very well so far. She’s definitely one of the better recasts in Y&R’s recent history.

And the only reason Burgess has chemistry with Melissa Claire Egan is because it’s Melissa Claire Egan, she has chemistry with everyone they pair her in scenes with, both romantically and not. BJ does not add to the scenes at all. And he also has very little chemistry with anyone else.

Burgess and Gina are better than the previous actors. Since I only started watching this soap after AMC was canceled, I don’t have the connection that long time viewers have. I am really liking Gina and Burgess a lot. MM was really good as Adam. The new Adam has a lot of work to be as good as he was. I just wish the new Adam would hurry up and start appearing as more than just an arm! I think Y&R is just getting better and better. The sets are brighter, the hairstyles and makeup are better. And Victor and… Read more »

Burgess is better than Billy Miller? Hahahahaha. BM just won the Outstanding Lead Actor Emmy. Burgess won’t sniff one, EVER.

KateA may have been referring to David Tom since technically he was the last one before BJ. IMO BJ is the worst recast in the last 20 yrs! I think even DO was doing fine. I’m surprised he is still there, too. He maybe could have come on as another character.
I’m so irritated that ABC has dome nothing to promote Billy Miller at GH. Why not The View? Irks me.

Whaaaat???? Seriously? OMG. KateA, with all due respect, if by your own admission, you are not familiar with Miller and Stafford, how can you even begin to make a comparison? No way, no how . Gina is wonderful, but too soon to tell if she even comes close to what Michelle DID as Phyllis.
Burgess? No comment.

I am familiar with Stafford and Miller. Billy Miller was on AMC before he went to Y&R. When I started watching Y&R, they were both still on the show. I had to fast forward through Stafford. Gina keeps me watching, I don’t go anywhere. Billy Miller is fine but I really like Burgess better. This is my opinion and I said I don’t have the connection to the previous actors that long time viewers have.

I’m Loving GT as “Phyllis”. The verdict is way out on JH as Nu Adam. BG is a terrible “Billy”, I FF through his scenes. JFP has complety slaughtered this show, she is the worst hack. Her initial statement when taking over was “I’m coming in with a scalpel to make slight necessary changes”. This witch has butchered our show with no remorse, unbelievable arrogance. I despise her for this. Please FIRE this whack job!

Nancy Lee Grahn Debuted 25 Years Ago Today as General Hospital’s Alexis Davis

Back on September 26th, 1996, (25 years ago today!) the new character of Alexis Davis made her debut on ABC’s General Hospital, and brought to the iconic soap opera, the talents of Nancy Lee Grahn.

Grahn, had already made a name for herself with her captivating portrayal of lawyer Julia Wainwright Capwell on Santa Barbara for which she won a Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy in 1989, in a tie with AMC’s Debbi Morgan.

Back in April, General Hospital, marked this milestone with a special episode for Grahn, that could be remembered come next year’s Emmys.

Alexis, or shall we call her “Natasha”, was introduced on GH as the daughter of Mikkos Cassadine and his mistress, whose throat was slit by Helena Cassadine, which has played into Alexis’ story for many years to come.  At the time of her entrance to the show, Wendy Riche was GH’s executive producer.

Through the years, viewers have witnessed Grahn’s portrayal of: a tough legal eagle, an honest depiction of a woman battling the bottle, failed romances, while all the time being a loving and faithful mother to her three daughters, Sam, Molly, and Kristina.

Nancy won her second Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy, this time for her role as Alexis in 2012, and has been a multi-nominee in the Lead Actress category for her performances on the ABC daytime drama series.

Kate Grahn, Nancy’s daughter took to social media within the last few hours since we posted this story to share a video on how thankful she and her mom are to GH fans and Nancy’s time on the show which afforded her the ability to have and raise Kate.  Check that out below.

Here’s to Nancy for giving us 25 years of her on-screen work as Alexis!

Congratulate Nancy and tell us your favorite Alexis Davis moments via the comment section.

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”
