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-

((much better than the half-crap mohawk look–

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?

That’s why I don’t fit in.

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

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!!!!

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
