Nick Stabile Wraps His Run As Temporary Nikolas On General Hospital!

Courtesy/ABC

Courtesy/ABC

How many times can Nikolas Cassadine fall off a balcony, or get shot and fall out of a window? Seems numerous times on ABC’s General Hospital.

On Tuesday’s episode, viewers of the ABC daytime drama series this time saw a heroic side of Nikolas, who prevented a bullet from hitting his new galpal Ava Jerome (Maura West).

Instead, the dark prince grabbed a gun from his new arch-nemesis Valentin Casssadine (James Patrick Stuart) and an all-out tussle began.  As the men struggled, it was Nik who got shot and then crashed through a window in what appears to be a long and fatal fall off a balcony on Cassadine Island.

According to Soap Opera Digest, (in their latest issues on newsstands this week) that fall signals the end of the short-term run for actor Nick Stabile, who did an excellent job at filling in for Daytime Emmy winner Tyler Christopher, while he was on personal leave from the show.  No official word yet as to when Tyler will be back on screen inhabiting the role he made soap famous for over 20 years.

So, share your thoughts in the comment section below on Nikolas’ latest fall, and give some props to Nick Stabile for keeping Nikolas’ storyline burning bright and moving forward during his stint on GH! But first, after the jump watch the final moment’s of yesterday’s GH where Nik crashes through a window to “his death”?

i have to say i’m not a fan of temp casting when the original actor is out, but i have to admit i’m glad the story kept playing out, and both actors who have filled in for the characters of nikolas and maxy have done a good job, so kudos to them but lets get the originals back.

Awwww, I feel sad. Even though I was a bit on the fence about his acting (some scenes better than others yet I still enjoyed him as Nic) there is just something about him I REALLY like! Charm…don’t know what it is but i felt myself looking forward to his scenes. Perhaps as some have suggested ( and yes I know the cast is, dare I say it, “bloated”) they could come up with another role for him; he’s just that likable!

Guest

Rebecca… As I mentioned to Su may be Tyler/Nik hired Nick S to throw off the scent of where Tyler/Nik was really hiding. He knew Jason would hunt him down …sorta a “proof of life” thing. That way we could have both Nicholas’s. Would have to be fake diamonds though.

Rebecca1
Guest

Good thinking Rose…but…if you are right it could explain how the real Nic is alive if this one died when he was shot and flew out the window. Lol, then we’d still be minus one Nick (Stabile)! 😉

Omar
Guest

Rebecca1, I so agree with you in everything you wrote..Something about this actor and his scenes with Maura’s “Ava” were really good..He was robotic at first but eventually he just took over the part.

Clearly Tyler is coming back and I am ok with Tyler but I am going to miss the job that Nick Stabile did..His acting was ok but his screen presence was even stronger than Tyler.

Cast him please in new role or a recast!!

rebecca1

Yes, thank you Omar. That’s exactly it…his screen presence…I said this on another post but sometimes he was like a nervous stage performer. And STILL his presence was warm and charming! Hopefully we’ll see him again.

I agree with both of you. Love Nick. He just does it for me. Not so Tyler.
I also love Molly. She killed the Melanie role.
But she is not the coquette that Maxie is supposed to be. Doesn’t the role call for a cheeky chick? That’s who Maxie is to me….petite and sassy.

I will miss him I wish he could remain being Nickolas 🙁

Rose
Guest

Su…I still like Tyler but I feel much the same way as you about Nick S. He is great with Ava. And he had a good a Cassadine look. It remained to be seen how he would be with Spencer. Wish there was some way he could still be worked into the story. Maybe it will come out that Nik/Tyler actually hired Nick S to he could throw everyone off the scent of where Tyler was really hiding.

Hi Rose..
I’m more attractive to Nick Stabile than to Tyler Christopher..
If I had a choice which one to take home it would be Nick..
And–
it was fun, entering to have something/someone different to watch and oogle lol.
Both the substitutes are now gone and I had a good time with Maxies more grownup more sophisticated Maxie, I will miss that/her, also

(( I like your idea to keep Nick))

He was good in the role. There are so many Cassidines coming out of the wood work, maybe he could come back as a cousin. I am glad to see Tyler coming back. I love his scenes with Spencer. They have wonderful chemistry together. But on a side note, Nicolas must be a cat with 9 lives. How many by times csn you fall from a window overlooking rocks and live through it. But after all, it is a soap opera

PS, SuzieQ.
I t would be wonderful if Nick could somehow stay….with Maura as his ‘bestie’. But, how?

More importantly; and on another vein…..do you remember when Elizabeth first met Hayden’s mother? Remember when both Lizzie and Hayden called “Mother”, at the same time? Remember when I said the woman was also Lizzie’s mother?
Well, I am more than sure now, Hayden and Lizzie are sisters.

@Rose. Yup. I said it from the moment Robin Riker walked in on Lizzie’s and Hayden’s ‘fistifight’. Hayden uttered, ” Mother!”. And, Lizzie intoned, “Mother?????!!!!”. It was just timed so well ( good job writers), it meant something. But, as I keep repeating, Rose: no one really pays attention to my ‘guesses’ since I still continue to insist Kiki is Nina’s. LOL. Hmmmm. I am a little confused about the ‘Webers”…..is Liz adopted? Oh, well, Rose….I am intrigued. I wonder if Hayden and Liz are full sisters? Fraternal twins?( fraternal is used for both male and female non-identical twins). Daughters… Read more »

I said the same exact thing to someone I was watching the show with, Jim! He would have made a good AJ Quartermaine. Not that Sean Kanan and Billy Warlock weren’t also good in the role. But that’s the kind of vibe I got from him, that type of character he’d be good playing. Great minds think alike Jim, lol!

Hey Jimh…I think kiki has chemistry with Morgan AND Dylan. Morgan us the sexy angst-ridden dude which can be alluring for a while, Dylan is the really cute, sexy, crestive , stable guy who brings out the lighthearted fun in kiki. They’re obviously keeping kiki and Dylan temporarily apart but have made it obvious they’re pining for each other. I agree with you on Parker and Chrissie. I literally cringed. Too mother/daughter to me. IF Alexis had been gay she and Parker would have made quite the power couple! I actually like Christina with Aaron (name?) She’s never had a… Read more »

The lack of information regarding Tyler’s return seems odd. When Kirsten Storms left temporarily, her return was quickly discussed. This quiet is concerning – even though Tyler seems to be Tweeting GH appearances. I just want to know that he IS returning. Don’t care when – let that be a surprise.

yeah, it’s disconcerting

I just love his presence…

it would seem to me… that in all his 20 year status with the show

he’d be more deserving of his goings on

I can’t lose another husband material

I just don’t get all the attention lauded the characters of Sonny and Jason

i’m really excited about Valentin…. bump them up… Cassadine herald

GH ! get Laura mixing

Tyler Christopher character is being built around…. one can hope

can’t imagine in the past 20 years he’s been another but a soldier on the show

the same happened for rebecca herbst when she was discusssing contract talks. we didn’t hear anything for weeks. she apologized and said that was the way it had to go. tyler christopher is in contract talks and would not be able to give out information until is over. i think that that is the reason and not unusual given his contract run.

Melissa

Guessing this is basically the leverage ABC is using against Tyler. Return or don’t. We’ll either kill your character off or find a way to resurrect you if you choose to come back under our terms. The cast is so bloated I’m beyond caring about who comes and goes anymore.

Nick Stabile gave a good effort, I give him props for that. I personally never bought him as Nikolas, cause Tyler is so ingrained in that role for me after 20 years. But he tried, that’s all you can ask. I look forward to hopefully seeing Tyler back soon, and this story continuing to play out, whether this was a fake Nikolas as others have mentioned, or whatever direction they’re going in. I love what they’ve done so far. James Patrick Stuart has been tremendous as Valentin thus far. Definitely wouldn’t mind seeing Nick on the show in the future… Read more »

Unlike Molly Burnett’s Maxie … Nick Stabile did a really good job as the Prince. He has enough screen presence and suave demeanor to watch and enjoy. It helps he had Maura to act off too! Good job !! I am anxious to have Tyler back …. And Kirsten!!! All I do is ffwd thru this Claudette/Nathan crap. Hopefully when Kirsten returns she’ll get something better to do & with a worthy acting partner!

I hate when a character is replaced with another actor. That being said, I was just getting used to the new Nicholas. His love scenes were more interesting than previous Nicholas. Just my opinion. Wasn’t sure I ever really liked the old Nicholas that much anyway. I’ve only been watching the show since last year. I started watching when I hear rumors of Sonny getting killed off. I used to watch him in another soap years ago with my grandmother. Anyway! Glad Sonny’s still around and looking better than ever… and yes, now I’m hooked 😉

He did a nice job filling in but was definitely NOT Nikolas to me, only Tyler is Nik for me and I hope he returns soon but GH did a good job with the temp recasts for Nik and Maxie. I could see him as AJ Quartermaine back from the dead, easily though if this cast wasn’t already overly bloated.

I must admit, I enjoyed Nick Stabile ten times more in the role of Nikolas Cassadine; he made him more likable in the role. Never really been a Tyler Christopher fan but, that is what comes when you temporarily recast a role.

If GH can bring back Easton for 4 or 5 different roles then I think they should bring back Nick Stabile as AJ. He would make a perfect AJ. They brought back Carlos as a way to get Anna off the hook from being a murderer so bringing back AJ would allow the show’s second coming of Christ, Sonny Corinthos, off the hook for murdering AJ. It would also lesson – to a VERY small degree – the hypocrisy this garbage of a show throws at us every single day simply to primp this one-note Sonny character. I readily admit… Read more »

Its funny because when Tyler fell out the window I thought that would have been a good place to have him off screen and have Valentin secretly kidnap him and when Tyler returned, reveal this. They went a different way and now it is Nick Stabile who fell out the window and I assume will live and Tyler will reprise the role. I am hoping Nick Stabile is rehired to pay someone else [Probably not on GH unless your name is Michael Easton!] or Y&R signs him on to play Luca’s brother who shows up in Genoa City to avenge… Read more »

Nicholas Sabile, has done a wonderful job, he has already got many of us calling the GH, hotline wanting more. Possibly another character. RH was cast twice, and ME, three times, why not make room for him. Get rid, of the old baggage like Amy, who adds nothing to the show. Never mind Valerie. He stepped in and did a great job, in the short while, he was our Nik.

Would you be allowed to do an interview with Stabile? I’d love to read one and have his thoughts playing Nik. Such as how long between being contacted and first tape day. How did he prepare? Who helped him around and helped him get used to things at the studio? Well, of course you know what to ask.

Thank you.

Denise Alexander Responds to Outpouring of Fan Support on Her Return to General Hospital

Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,
