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.

Let us pray this is leading up to a return of ONE LIFE TO LIVE

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

Harry

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.

Hi Harry..
I love Franco’s doo !
He is rocking it with a new look. it gives him personality..
and-
that doo is returning.

((much better than the half-crap mohawk look–
not a fan of the half shaved head yuk!
Rogers doo much better..

hey! he needs dark-rimmed glasses to carry it further ahaa!

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
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.

Timmm

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!

Timmm

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

Shay
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
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!!!!

‘Edge of Night’ Mainstay Forrest Compton Dies Following Complications From COVID-19

Sad news to report this Monday.  The longtime star of CBS’ and then ABC’s The Edge of Night, Forrest Compton. has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Forrest died on Sunday at the age of 94.

His death was reported and confirmed by Compton’s friends and an article in the Shelter Island Reporter.

As Edge of Night and longtime daytime fans know, Forrest played Monticello’s district attorney, Mike Karr.  He played this key role from 1971 until the show’s cancellation in 1984.  The show was originally titled “The Edge of Night” and eventually just became “Edge of Night”.   The soap which was steeped in murder mysteries ran on CBS from 1956–1975 and on ABC from 1975–1984,   In addition, Forrest along with his on-screen wife, Ann Flood (Nancy Karr) were one of the most popular duos in daytime.

Not only did Compton appear on EON, but he also had soap roles on As the World Turns, One Life to Live and All My Children.   In primetime, Forrest was best known for his role on Gomer Pyle: USMC opposite  Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton as Lieutenant Colonel Edward Gray.

In a heartwarming story where fan meets actor and helps him out (according to the Shelter Island Reporter) Compton was only slated to appear in two episodes a week for the next 13 weeks on The Edge of Night, when he needed an apartment in New York City near the studio, so when he heard about a one-bedroom on East 72nd he went to see Al, the super.  Forrest later learned that Al was such a devotee of  The Edge of Night that he locked his office door every day at 2 p.m. to watch uninterrupted. When Forrest mentioned that he had just been hired to play Mike Karr, the super said, “You’re getting that apartment.”’

Sharon Gabet who starred as Raven on Edge of Night, posted on Facebook, a tribute and remembrance of her former co-star: “Woody, as he was affectionately known to all of us on The Edge of Night, was a master professional, hilarious, smart, kind and gentle. I spoke with him a couple years ago on his birthday and he was active and happy in his retirement. Rest in peace, Woody, and give hugs and kisses to Larkin, Lois, Dennis, Nick, Joel, Irving and all the other EDGE alumni up there.  THE story about Woody. He was on EON when they were LIVE. It was brutal, but Woody was one of the best “straight face” men in the business. So he is doing a scene with Nancy his wife (the glorious Ann Flood – another “straight face” master). He walks in the kitchen and sits down and his line was supposed to be “Gee, it’s hard to get up in the morning.” as Nancy gave him his coffee. Instead, Mike Karr says on national TV, “Gee it’s hard to get IT up in the morning, Nancy.” There was pandemonium among the crew during the commercial break as you can imagine.”

Now below, watch the opening title sequence fro the The Edge of Night over the years, many of which feature Forrest as Mike Karr at the very opening or at the end as one of the series most well-known and beloved characters.
