OLTL's Crystal Hunt exit… is it bye-bye Stacy Morasco or not?

Crystal HuntTwo reports have surfaced and confirmed that indeed Crystal Hunt has been let-go by ABC and One Life to Live, in her much maligned role as Stacy Morasco.  The character and actress who was given so much air time and thrust into major story immediately upon arriving on the Llanview canvas, made soap fans and soap pundits quite infuriated.

However, more news today from Soap Opera Digest, who spoke with a OLTL spokesperson who had this to say about the Crystal/Stacy situation! “Crystal Hunt will be in major story in the coming months as the story of Stacy and her baby builds to a climax. As far as rumors that she is leaving the show, we do not comment on rumors.”

But perhaps that statement serves to say that the end of the line for Stacy is near?  Earlier This morning, Nelson Branco confirmed in his TV Guide Canada, Soapgeist column, what New York Daily News Carolyn Hinsey already leaked on her facebook page.   Hinsey stated,  “Hearing Crystal Hunt was fired from One Life.” Soapgeist confirmed Hunt was let go late last week!

Crystal Hunt was delicious as Stacy and a memorable character. OLTL producers are making a mistake letting her go; she was the only interesting character on the show and with her “passing”, I doubt that I will stay as in tune as I have.

Crystal Hunt was my most favorite actresses on daytime tv. Though I did not like her character, she played Stacy well as the epitome of selfishness. I just died laughing with most of her one liners, like when she said to Jessica, in contrast to the Maury Povich show “You are not my baby’s momma”

PLEASE BRING HER BACK ON THE SHOW!
THE SHOW IS REALLY BORING WITHOUT HER!

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.
