I wanted to comment on Becky Herbst- I am very angry as a fan that they let her go, and I also tune in for her and probably won’t be tuning back in, as far as the other 40 actors, some I do like some I do not, for me it is the stories. I am just not interested anymore, Becky/ Liz was like the last thread holding me on. So in essence you are right something is wrong and it is with the writing and whoever is making these bad decisions. If they want this show to succeed, they… Read more »

I got to tell you…I love Melissa Archer! She is such a sweetheart and a wonderful actress. I know Susan Haskell is a great actress too but I really think that Melissa deserves to get an emmy consideration this year. She has done fabulous work this past year, especially in her scenes with Susan and Michael.

Another fun podcast! Thanks Michael, Carolyn and Dillion! Loved the interviews with Melissa and Chad the most. It is always great to hear about the news and from your perspectives. GH is my favorite soap and yes… I am terribly saddened about Becky Herbst leaving, and there are issues with them writing out the core characters and older characters. However there are so many talented people on that show whith some stellar performances that I agree with Carolyn’s perspective. Becky will get on another show and will make that show very successful. Chad’s performances this week have been so fabulous… Read more »

Hey, Michael. This was another fun pod cast. I can always count on Carolyn to drop her subtle remarks and she is so sharp, plus talented in so many ways…her writing,etc. a very creative person. I thought your guests this month were just perfect. It was especially great to hear from A.Martinez,and to hear he will be back on B&B and as a doctor. I’m thinking maybe the Nick and Stephanie lung cancer story. Whatever it is he is welcome addition. Melissa is such a pretty girl and a terrific actress and I hope she gets an Emmy one day,… Read more »

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
