Casting news today has that none other than former Passions star, Brooke Kerr (Ex-Whitney Russell-Harris Crane) is set to debut in a new role on General Hospital.

According to EW.com, look for Kerr to make her first Port Charles appearance on the upcoming Thursday, March 5th installment.

Kerr will be playing a doctor, not much else is being shared as to what kind and who she may be involved with on the ABC daytime drama series.

Passions fans remember that in story, Kerr’s character Whitney was in a relationship with the character of Chad (Donn Swaby and later, Charles Divins).  Chad was believed to be Whitney’s half-brother, but later it was revealed to not be the case, and the duo ended up tying the knot.

Since Passions, Kerr has been seen on Hawaii Five-0, Westworld, and True Blood to name just a few TV appearances.

So excited to hear that Brook is coming to GH? Who do you think she will play and be involved with in story on the soap? Comment below.

Trina. She’s a cute kid, but, man, am I sick of the teen scene.

I can understand your forgetting Trina’s name, Jimh, since we didn’t know we were watching a teen soap. They should rename the show with the Port Charles zipcode, like 90210. I like Cameron & Trina but Joss is turning into a “Carlette” and Dev is just a kid with pretty hair. And I’m on overload with new, unpleasant characters!

Agreed, Jimmy…I proposed the same thing, among other suggestions.
Also, DMRR is on the mark—-I love seeing kids and teens on soaps; but this ‘crowd’ is sort of annoying—Tnina is a talented, little actress. But the plots are oh-so-not-appealing—–she represents wisdom? The know-it-all sophist. I don’t buy it, writers!!

I cannot believe that teens are watching ANY soaps.

Just what the show needs, another new character. We’ll be introduced to the character, then, won’t see her for weeks.

DMRR, WHY does this keep happening? It seems every week there’s some newbie plopping in on Port Charles. They seem to have already abandoned Brando and Gladys (10 hallelujahs there), and now the odious Brook Lynn has the drop on Julian already? I’d love for Ava to make mince meat of her! And this Jordan-driven drivel? What a bore.

Trina’s mom & Taggart’s ex-wife would be the most logical guess. Not that the GH cast really needs to be any bigger.

Here’s to you Mrs. Robinson. Trina turns her lonely eyes to you.

Could she be Stella’s DNA match?

My guess is that she’ll be Trina’s mom, Taggert’s ex.

I think she`s too young for Taggert and Trina, but maybe being a Dr., she will get involved with T.J, since he and Molly might start having problems now.

Oh, that would makes sense.

Hey, Ms Vi….
I don’t consider age a ‘contender’ any longer, on soaps. I used to. —-Look at Julian and ‘daughter’ Sam. In reality, they are only nine years apart—Brook is forty-six—-old enough to be Trina’s mom.
I like your idea—spice it up—romance has been shot through the heart —so dormant. GH does seem to adhere to the much older woman/young stud syndrome. LOL—better than Sonny/Jason/gun-toting enthusiasts’ storylines.

Amen, Celia. And when a performer is talented enough (and not driven by excess vanity), they can play multiple ages. After all, the great Anne Bancroft was only 35 when she filmed THE GRADUATE, while her character Mrs. Robinson could have been 10 years older. Not to mention SORASing. It’s part of the fun!

yes excited! GH is great right now, and love the current teen scene. GH , when good, has always a solid lead teen scene story that especially builds before summer. This is how me and many others have gotten hooked on GH, and right now it hasn’t been this solid since days of robin, stone, Elizabeth, lucky, nickolas , days, before that Jagger karen brenda Jason held the torch, but since then the closest to thier popularity we had gotten was lulu maxie spinelli dillion. Not much since, so it’s a great sign. Also the balance of romance, hospital, humor,… Read more »

Sorry I yelled at everybody but just sick of the old news MB and his crew are not the answer I want to see new stories new people that’s how a soap progresses I feel that Brad and Lucas were sidelined in a story that should have been about them but no here comes the foursome who we make it about them ugh! It is a ensemble cast and I like stories being about other people then MB the cue card reader

I also see your frustration, Kay. It seems to me the Unholy Trinity of Sonny, Carly, and Jason taking over has gotten exponentially worse the past two years. And Sam? I just disregard her because I can’t decipher anything she says without putting on Closed Captioning.

Ahhhh—-Kay—I can understand your frustration. But, this is an opinion site. And, while some of us may not like or agree with other posters’ argument, we must remember that each of us is entitled to her/his opinion. I respect that—imagine how dull and ‘imbalanced’ the comments would be if we all said the same thing. Thank goodness for diversity.
Peace-out, as my Gran would say!!❤️

I was a true Passions’ fan throughout High School and College —to its end!!
So happy to see Brook after all this time. Hmmmm—what character?!?!?! How about Tanner’s ex? Jordan’s sister? Trina’s mother?
Perhaps she’s Curtis’ ex—-stirring trouble?

C, you know I love you but I have to be honest with you, the other day when I saw that slime ball Link who is blackmailing Brook Lynne, he could pass for NuNick’s brother!

This woman is absolutely beautiful! Why have I not seen her before? As Trinna’s mom, she sure put Ava in her place, and Franco running after her was disgusting! I’d like to also say that Jordan has got to be popping stupid pills. After what just happened with the two kids and Taggert getting killed, why didn’t her mind jump instantly to the possibility that her own son was kidnapped as well? OMG, she is something else, and I think she’s been sharing those pills with Anna. That woman is getting on my last nerve as well. Naivety does not… Read more »

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
