    Spencer will be 15 in Feb,,
    I can only hope he will act like his age on his return..
    Last time he came off like an 8 yr old..
    15 yr old boys are very savvy smart informed guys
    and rarely mamas boys..
    So, here hoping Spenser will act as a 15yr old.

    I hope Valentin clobbers Nikolas..
    I’m for Valentin, I luvs him !!

      Su…15 year old boys are also teens with tons of attitude. When you factor this in it’s shaping up to be quite a family reunion coming up.

      No, he came back as a teen for three days. He helped Joss and camryn deal with Oscar death.

    Spencer is a legacy character! He is aSpencer and a Cassadine and deserves to be on as much as the other teens!

      He’s not genetically a Spencer as Nikolas wasn’t Luke’s kid. But he is a Corinthos, via his birth mother, Courtney.

    I love Spencer, Nicolas Bechtel is a wonderful actor, and owns that character! I cannot wait to see when he sees his dad again!!!

    I heard Valentin gets shot and there are a number of suspects including Spenser…

      I’m one who won’t shed any tears over this, Jimh. I loathe Valentin and still remember how he used to bully Spencer when he couldn’t best him any other way. Typically coward-like behavior.

      • Debi Snyder

        Exactly! Valentin needs to go!

    Absolutely looking forward to seeing him back on the canvas and all the story points for Spencer to play. I hope TPTB don’t disappoint and show us all the feelings that these characters would deal with. The talented actors in these roles will knock it out of the park if given the chance.

    Good news that Spencer is back, but he’s gonna look completely out of place if he’s in scenes with Joss & Cameron who used to be the same age as him, but clearly aren’t anymore.

    First things first though, and he really needs to rip his dad a new orifice for faking his death and leaving him in the dark for three years. Spencer’s a smart kid with all the Cassadine & Corinthos genes which would have left him entirely capable of being in on the scam to take down Val the Bastard.

      I wonder if his voice is changed or changing. That will take a little getting use to!

    Yes, it’s about to go down. I love Spencer, bring him back and wreak havoc on Charlotte, Valatine and port Charles. Yes Spencer come back.

    No one can play Spencer but HIM!!!
    Love to watch and with that attitude!!!! Just Love it!!!! Keep up the good work!

    This is the greatest news, especially since shows are too anxious to age the young characters. I was afraid that Spencer would come back as a 20-something. There are some
    actors that are so terrific, and are happy to be on the show, that it’s a shame to even think of replacing them. I’m thinking of Robin Scorpio-Drake and Kimberly McCullough.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
