Looks like General Hospital had made a casting move, and had replaced young actress Scarlett Fernandez in the role of Valentin’s daughter, Charlotte Cassadine.

In a post on her Instagram account, Fernandez shared: “Im super grateful for the opportunity that Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner gave me in 2016. 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.

John J. York Shares His Emotional Journey from Cancer Back to ‘General Hospital’ with ‘Good Morning America’

General Hospital fans are counting the hours till tomorrow, and the June 19th episode of the ABC daytime drama series, where they will see the highly-anticipated return of longtime veteran, John J. York (Mac Scorpio).

York has been through a physical and emotional rollercoaster fighting two blood cancers, myelodysplastic syndromes and multiple smoldering myeloma, and receiving a lifesaving blood stem cell transplant after months of trying to locate a match donor.

Now, on the other side of it, York sat down with Good Morning America this week ahead of his first episode back on GH, where not only do we see the moment he steps through the door at Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) and is welcomed by her, Georgie, Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and he will also meet the new young children playing the role of Bailey James, twins Riley and Miley Polonki.


Speaking with tears in his eye on coming back to work at the set of GH, York expressed, “Everybody has been very welcoming. Very welcoming, and here I go right off the bat (begins to tear up). I can’t tell you how nice it’s been to get the support that I have gotten.”

When asked by GMA’s Zohreen Shah, what he missed the most about being away from GH, while undergoing treatment, York shared, “I just felt so attached that I didn’t feel I missed anything. I just took a little break and a little vacation, I guess, and had to go through something, and now we’re here kind of on the other side of it.”

The story for Mac heats up on today’s June 18th episode of GH, when in a preview for the show, Cody (Josh Kelly) talks to Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) and finally admits he is having regrets about the time he wasted with Mac, after seeing how Chase (Josh Swickard) has been grieving the loss of his father, Gregory.  Will he fess up when Mac steps back into action and tell him that he is his biological son? Stay tuned.

Check out John’s emotional appearance on Good Morning America below. Are you looking forward to seeing Mac back in action on GH starting tomorrow? Comment below.

John J. York Returns as General Hospital’s Mac Scorpio and Shares, “Expect The You-Know-What to Hit the Fan”

General Hospital fans were overjoyed when John J. York (Mac Scorpio) revealed he was back on set and taping all-new episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

The beloved GH star was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders, back in 2022.  Later, he underwent treatment for the cancer in September of 2023, which took him off the show while he went through a blood stem cell transplant and the recovery.

Now, those who have waited for Mac to finally get to the truth – that Cody Bell (Josh Kelly) is his biological son – may finally get their wish!  Speaking with TV Insider on his imminent return (he is back on-screen this coming Wednesday, June 19th), York shared on what’s about to go down, “Expect the you-know-what to hit the fan and let the dust come down and settle where it will, so get ready.”

York also prepped viewers that he will look a little different when he first seen back in Port Charles, due to his cancer treatments, “My hair grew back nice. I was not sure how my hair would look because I was bald. Now it’s short, like a military cut.”

Speaking on his own health and life, John shared, “With the MDS, if everything goes well with the bone marrow transplant, that should be handled. With the multiple smoldering myeloma, smoldering being the key word, it just kind of stays there in my system. There is a small chance that it could turn into full-blown leukemia at some point, but the goal is for me to die of old age before I die of any kind of blood cancer. I feel fantastic and all the blood tests that I take once a month have all pointed in the direction that things are all going in the right direction, which is really good.”

Are you looking forward to the moment that Mac realizes Cody is his son? What do you think his reaction will be as he has been duped all this time? Happy, as we are, that John is back on-screen on GH? Comment below.
