According to a tweet from his on-screen grandmother, Genie Francis (Laura), fan favorite scene-stealer Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer) is making a return to GH.  While we don’t know if its a short return, or an appearance. or a lengthier stay, it’s always great when Spencer Cassadine shakes up the canvas.

Francis went public with the intel with her tweet that said: “@NicolasJBechtel A little bird told me I might be seeing u soon, well actually a big bird, a really big bird…”

Bechtel had been busy appearingon the Disney Channel series, Stuck in the Middle playing the role of Lewie Diaz, while away from Port Charles.  When we last heard of Spencer, grandma Laura had him sent away to boarding school in Europe following the “death” of his father, Nikolas (Tyler Christopher and last played by Nick Stabile).

Excited to know a Nicolas Bechtel sighting is on its way to your TV screens? Comment below!

      Nicolas has been oustanding as “Lewie”. I’ve caught a few eps with the kids.
      His acting really stands out. Nicolas is a true performer.

        @CeeCee….Yes, Nicolas is undoubtedly a true performer, but I’m sorry, his Spencer is an insufferable little twerp!

    So happy to hear this! I miss this little big ball of fire. I hope this means the Nicolas isn’t far behind. Anyway, screen time with Spencer’s wise-cracking is always a delight.

    Happy to see Spencer back. If only Britt would come back with him.

      Personally, I’d love to see Britt come back all by her lonesome…or btter yet, with “Daddy Faison” in tow! Perhaps Liesl has a birthday coming up and could do with a special surprise visit???

      • Celia

        March 9, 2017 at 5:48 pm

        Oh, yes, Shay! That would be a dream come true….Britt and my hilarious Faison.

      • Shay

        March 10, 2017 at 7:49 am

        Tell me about it, CeeCeeGirl…Love that Britt, she has “true grit,” and Faison, well, is FAISON!!! Need I say more???? LOL…

        Faison as Nathan’s father!

    GOOD! He’s been missed. Now bring back his father, Nikolas Cassadine–he also has been missed.

      Hi Rhonda That’s my favorite sisters name . I call her Rhonda-RIFIC !

      Where is the actor who played Nicholas? And the great actor who portrayed him? I thought he was leaving for a short term ?

    Glad he’s returning. I like the little guy, he has spunk, is funny and can stir things up. Let’s hope he’s worked into a significant plot, not just in the background.

    March 8, 2017 at 6:04 pm

    Awesome! Now, please come back Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) and also Kelly Thiebaud (Britt).

      I read Tyler made a statement a few days ago that he’s definitely not coming back and is moving to Nashville.

    Bring back Tyler too!!!!!

    most likely-
    Spenser knows his dad Nikolas is alive and has been in contact or at times with Nikolas..

    Perfect timing….GH is very exciting right now….this news makes it even better.

    LOVE this kid! Adorable and talented; hope he returns as many times as his schedule allows.

    I want to see little Nick take Charlotte under his wing. She is such a cutey and really has done a good job. I thought I read somewhere that this was her first acting job? Those two would be adorable. Oh, and Spencer will match wits with Valentine, for sure!

    • Celia

      March 9, 2017 at 5:54 pm

      I like that, Timmmy. I can see Charlotte and Spencer forming a friendship.
      I just wonder where Spencer will be living and with whom? With Lulu?
      He is the rightful heir of Wyndemere, as far as I am concerned. Nina and Valentin just don’t belong there.

      • rebecca1

        March 10, 2017 at 4:27 am

        I don’t think he’s coming back full time, CeeCee. But, if he did, until and if a recast Nicolas comes back, he’d probably live with Lulu or Laura.

      • Timmm

        March 10, 2017 at 5:24 am

        Spencer will probably live in grandma Laura’s car with her!

      • Shay

        March 10, 2017 at 7:47 am

        Probably Laura….if she ever makes it out of that car trunk….perhaps Spencer could join here there!

    So happy to hear this….I know he will bring some life back to GH…the show NEEDS him!

    Laura needs a house so Spencer has a place to stay. No reason she needs to continue couch surfing

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.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International
