One Life To Live Fave Hillary B. Smith Makes A Return To GH

Photo: ABC

Looks like legal eagle Nora Buchanan (Hillary B. Smith() is making another visit to Port Charles!  But who will she be representing this time in a court of law?

According to a post on the GH Twitter page Thursday morning, “Look who’s back in town! And who (aside from Valentin) might Nora be doing business with this time?”

One Life to Live Daytime Emmy-winner, Smith last appeared on the ABC daytime drama series in 2017, representing Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) and Olivia Jerome (Tonja Walker).

It certainly seems like Nora will have a new client!

So excited to know Hillary is coming back to General Hospital?  Do you think there will be a murder mystery, custody case, or something else that brings her into the storyline? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

Loved her on OLTL! Glad that she keeps popping up in PC. When she comes over or Ava’s mother, Deila, from RH, it makes me feel that the soap world in more connected and strong; like those characters in those town still live on while we watch GH.

Oh my goodness, I saw the headline that started with One Life To Live and got all excited. For a second I thought there was news about a comeback of the show in some form. A guy can hope for a OLTL return, can’t he?

I have an idea—how about Nora comes back to PC for all 3 reasons—she is caught up in a murder mystery AND she has to be present for a custody case AND she’s also in town for something else?—i miss my OLTL characters and iw ant her to stay for more than just a few episodes. I have hated that Todd Manning and John McBain haven’t been given back to us since ABC won their case against Prospect Park.

In the who killed Shiloh story???? and when will Todd Manning return…i like to see him run into Franco-lol

Did you see Franco’s new hair cut, Jim? Suddenly he looks like Herbie the Dentist from Rudolph the Red Nosed reindeer. Maybe they ought to send Franco/Todd off to the island of forgotten soap characters.

I love Franco’s doo !
He is rocking it with a new look. it gives him personality..

I made an insulting comment yesterday. I am sure I offended someone, but just could not help myself. All I could think of is waking up with that on the pillow next to me. Yikes!

Harry

Wait! You made an insulting comment and I missed it? Well, Violet, if you don’t have something nice to say about someone, sit next to me. PS. This needs to be said: I was wrong when I said that outing someone for alcoholism was okay because alcoholism is a disease and therefore, nothing to be ashamed of. You were right when you asserted that is up to the alcoholic to come clean about this disease. I owe you a belated apology, Violet. I’m sorry. This is a subject close to my heart as I suspect it is for you.

Hi Harry
I am a little mixed up here, which is nothing new, but in this case I am not sure what you are you referring to. I was making reference to Franco’s new haircut, which I think makes him look goofy, although Goofy looked better. Sorry, I must be really losing it, because I don’t remember any of the alcoholic dialogue you are referring to. So, please don’t apologize for a darn thing. I enjoy your comments. I guess I better watch what I say, or it will come back to bite me, huh?

I Luvs fFrano 🙂
An unusual character, however saying that I’d like to add-

I’d love it if his tumor came back and Franco would go crazy, again.
GH needs the original Franco (James Franco) back to give me some excitement !!

GH lost its core and has become too sweet & mushy (possibly to appease the Nursing Home TV time)

I want GH to pick it up and go back to what it once was..

I remember such great and sometimes funny and rollicking scenes with Nora and Bo on OLTL.
Makes me nostalgic for the good times.

For Hell’s sake Frank…. can you let OLTL go already. Or at least keep it off of GH??

Hmmm

If not Valentin, who would need defense that neither Alexis nor Scott would represent? Ryan or Kevin come to mind.

THIS is GH! Enough with these castoffs! No one misses her and any character who gives Valentin more screen time, UGGGG!

Shay

This is GH, Timmm? Not that one would notice, save for the occasional episode where former OLTL-ers and ex-players from other fictional soap towns aren’t hogging the limelight!

If I wanted to see a “New” lawyer, why the hell not Ric Lansing???”

Shay
Guest
Shay

Why does GH even need a new lawyer at all????? There’s already Scott and the seemingly omnipresent Alexis who never misses the chance to showboat in court, then there is also the fabulous Diane Miller! (I know you don’t like her. Timmm, but she’s always a welcome sight as far as I’m concerned!) The last thing this show needs is another attorney, especially one from Llanview!

Anyone else notice that Stafford is morphing back into the character she played on Y&R? Today, she was in full throttle bitch-PHyllis mode as she cattily complained about Lizzy and Willow.

Hi Harry..
I can only hope that Stafford is morphing back into her Awesome Phillis type character, she was at her best as Phillis..
The Nina character has not been good for Staffords skills/talents,, Ninna has not been a good fit for her as written..

So- here’s hoping for a change!!

Harry

This is true, SuOO. Stafford is at her best when playing the bitch goddess from hell.

If only she and her inner-Phyllis were to morph all the way back to Genoa City!

Either I’m clairvoyant or my daily prayers to the SoapGods from the moment Nina first darkened Port Charles’ doorstep have finally been heard! Perhaps both!!!!!

The soap opera, was very good till the television industry changed. Just because the production of the programs expensive, all is worth the quality. Only the television executive wanted to changed. That’s why the best shows got shot down!!!!

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

So, how do you feel about Steve being let go from GH? Do you hope Steve can return at some point? Share your thoughts via the comment section below,
