Playing Charlotte Cassadine was my favorite and I’m sad it’s come to an end.I will miss my castmates and the crew and I know the fans will support the new actor playing Charlotte. Thank you for all the support!”

Scarlett was fantastic as Charlotte. Guessing they’ll SORAS her and Jake to be a younger teen set.

That would be a weird pairing though…. Jake isn’t biologically a Spencer, but he was raised as Lucky’s son, so putting him with Lulu’s daughter would be kind of “icky”.

Is that your name for real or that you called yourself .

I have many names… Samael, Lucifer, Mephistopheles, Beelzebub, Old Scratch, The Devil, etc. But Satan seems to be the name most mortals are familiar with.

Let me guess…she’ll either be college age like Joss or…I guess that’s it. Never liked Charlotte anyway; she was a louse and a bully. I say don’t bother recasting and cut your losses. We have enough in the young set already.

Soaphound…oh, I agree. And…I never liked the character of Charlotte to begin with. Most of all, most soap kids annoy me. GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!!

What’s the point of SORASing Charlotte while her mother is a vegetable?

I think GH is going to rapidly age Charlotte. There is so much more writers can do with an older Charlotte. For one thing, an older actor can work longer hours.

I realize aging on soaps is nonsensical and illogical, but Rocco is older than Charlotte, so if they age her, they have to age him. And Georgie. I can’t see the show bringing a whole influx of tweens onto the canvas, because there are SO many…Elizabeth’s boys, Lulu’s kids, Avery, etc etc.

I guess all the wondering and suppositions are moot. Looks like she has been replaced already. Scarlet was too good in her tole, the way she treated the other kids and bullied her own cousin. Willow had her figured out when she was her teacher, and tried to tell her dad and Nina who would hear none of her faults.

Well… a few weeks back a story was posted about a ABC show that James Patrick Stuart is in was given a full season.. so sort of makes sense that Charlotte would exit too (?)

Oops.. i had seen the episode with new Charlotte..wasn’t expecting a recast same day as reading this… hmmm why ? I liked Charlotte being sassy.. total change in direction new charlotte..

A Devil doesn’t want to be too critical of child actors, but after seeing the recast…. I really think this was a mistake. Sure, it’s always possible that this poor new kid was nervous because it was her first day and all but…. my first impression is that Scarlett was better for the role.

I never liked the previous Charlotte character. So I really don’t care about the recast one way or another. Interesting how both Valentin and new Charlotte are currently playing nice. Could they revert to the their old ways?

they recast her w/ and actress that is the same age? why? scarlet was doing a great job, and seemed more experience then the actress who debuted as her replacement, smh completely baffled.

Two potential reasons are circling- 1. Her family moved away from CA. 2. Her parents are anti-vax and Scarlett could not then comply with the current protocols.

ESPN Sports Personality and ‘General Hospital’ Guest Star, Stephen A. Smith Reveals COVID-19 Nearly Took His Life

In a harrowing account of coming down with Covid-19, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who also has a recurring role on General Hospital as Brick, revealed his battle over the holidays that led to him being hospitalized because of the severity of his symptoms.

On Monday, Smith returned to his co-hosting gig on ESPN’s First Take and it was there he shared what happened during his breakthrough case of Covid.  Stephen had been fully vaccinated. Smith said that he had tested positive late in December and wound up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs over New Years.

Stephen A. discussed the details, expressing:  “I had 103 degree fever every night. Woke up with chills and a pool of sweat. Headaches were massive. Coughing profusely. And it got to a point where right before New Year’s Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year’s Day. That’s how I brought in the New Year.”

He went on to say about contracting Covid-19: “For me personally, it hit me differently. (Doctors) told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad I was. I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day … I’m still not 100% with my lungs, but I’m Covid negative … I’m on the road to recovery.”

On a happier note, Smith shared how glad he was to be back at work after testing negative: “I’m ecstatic to be back. I’ve missed being at work. I’ve used more sick days in the last month than I’ve used in my 28-year career in this business.  And I can’t tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it.”

So, glad to know Stephen A. is on the mend from a very scary bout with Covid? Share your thoughts in the comment section

GH’s Kristina Wagner On Felicia’s Concern Over Maxie’s Emotional State

While Maxie (Kirsten Storms) knows exactly where baby Louise is, not many other people know, especially her mother, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Now, with Kristina Wagner back on-contract at General Hospital, it opens up more angles to play in the ongoing saga of “What happened to Maxie and Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) Baby?”

GH viewers know that Louise is “Bailey” and being taken of by Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton).  However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, look for Felicia to be very worried over Maxie’s attitude toward finding her baby.

Wagner shared to SOD on Felicia: “She is absolutely concerned about Maxie. Why is she behaving this way? Is she traumatized to a point where she is not frantically looking for her baby?”

The actress goes on to say about her alter-ego: “Felicia thinks ‘What is wrong with you?  Your baby’s missing. Why are you not (falling apart)?’ And Maxie says, ‘I have to stay calm for my other children.’  She has a way of justifying it, but Felicia is questioning Maxie’s behavior.”

Look for Felicia to be more determined than ever to help find Maxie’s baby, which we know could spell trouble for everyone!

So, do you hope Felicia learns the truth about Louise, and helps Maxie with her cover-up? Or do you hope Felicia helps get the little one back in Maxie’s arms sooner than later? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
