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.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?
