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.

    Probably will be the mom of Josslyn’s friend(4get her name at moment)

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

        i know..they are boring me lately…

      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.

  3. DMRR

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

    • Soaphound

      February 26, 2020 at 8:01 pm

      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.

  5. Steve

    February 26, 2020 at 12:48 pm

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

    Could she be Stella’s DNA match?

  6. Rodd

    February 26, 2020 at 1:30 pm

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

    • Violet Lemm2

      February 29, 2020 at 2:23 am

      Rodd
      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.

      • Rodd

        February 29, 2020 at 7:32 am

        Oh, that would makes sense.

      • Celia

        February 29, 2020 at 8:00 am

        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.

        • Soaphound

          March 1, 2020 at 12:45 pm

          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, and little bit mob adventure thrown in is GREAT. Van Etten and Conners GH is awesome and there is actual dialoge to the show which puts it head and shoulders of some other “writer”who had written FH into a mockery of itself, thank god that “writer” is having his way somewhere else.

    What the heck is going on with you people?? You have lost your bloody minds! First we don’t show enough gay people then we don’t show enough people of color then when they cast a gorgeous woman of color hell now that’s racist! What in the hell is going on with you knock it off ! You are indeed out of your minds ! She is a actress she got cast for a role in the show please leave her alone go with the story hopefully it will be good ! I think gh has a great team of young actors ! Deal with it or quit watching

      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

      • Soaphound

        March 1, 2020 at 12:48 pm

        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.

    • Celia

      February 29, 2020 at 8:09 am

      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?

    • Timmm

      March 4, 2020 at 10:41 am

      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!

  11. Timmm

    We lose Taggert and gain this? No thanks!

  12. Violet Lemm

    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 look good on Anna , and thinking that Peter is the child she gave up, is destroying her better judgement. I also want to wipe that silly smile off of her, when talking to Finn about the jerk Peter, seemingly thinking she’s got everything all figured out.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.
