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.

So NOT excited!

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!

Celia

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?

Rodd

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.

Rodd

Oh, that would makes sense.

Celia

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

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.

GH…PLEASE no more new characters!!!!! Your canvas is overcrowded enough already!!!!! BEYOND YUCK!!!!!

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

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
Celia

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
Timmm

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!

We lose Taggert and gain this? No thanks!

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.

General Hospital

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

The Britch is Back! Kelly Thiebaud Makes a Return to General Hospital

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?

And … leave it to Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) to get what she wants …. and what she wants is to hit the hay with Julian, after Julian hit her up late after dropping off Alexis.  Is he on the rebound from his car talk with Alexis? Or, is she just so into Britt for some fun?

So, were you upset that Alexis drank? Do you like Britt and Julian hooking-up? Will Carly get Nelle to sign the consent forms  for Wiley’s surgery? And, are you intrigued by a redux of a Liz and Nikolas romance? Comment below.
