Scarlett Fernandez To Make Her GH Debut As Claudette's Daughter, Charlotte!

The little girl that all of a sudden General Hospital’s conniving Claudette (Bree Williamson) revealed she had to her former lovers, Nathan (Ryan Paevey) and Griffin (Matt Cohen), is about to debut on-screen this coming Thursday October 13th on the ABC soap opera.  That’s when Scarlett Fernandez begins her run as Charlotte!

Although this is the 7-year-old’a first daytime role, she isn’t a show biz newbie!  Fernandez recently shot a role in the ABC pilot Broken from executive producer and Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon.   In addition, Fernandez can also currently be seen in national commercial spots for Ross Stores.

With Nathan looking forward to meeting his “daughter” and Griffin not sure about Claudette’s story, and Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) supposedly jailed in Greece, and the man that Claudette is running from, just how will Charlotte’s arrival play into the entire story?

So, which man do you think will ultimately be the bady daddy to Charlotte? 

Is it Nathan as the DNA test proves?  Could Charlotte actually turn out to be Griffin’s or Valentin’s biological daughter?  Share your theories in the comment section below!

My dear, dear, Patrick, You have a good heart, my friend. But, what is actually ailing Griffin!?!? He is torment by those proverbial demons, eating at his insides. It is angels whom should be chasing him, not demons. He is sooo celestial looking, afterall. LOL. but, we see his turmoil–battling a war within himself. The Is he still in love with Claudette? Is she his demon or his angel who could abate those greedy demons, hungry for Griffin’s soul? Claudette is diluvial, in my opinion. In contrast, Griffin is the typical tortured, cliched hero looking for that mystical, non-existent, unattainable… Read more »

I gotta say this;
I am sick and tired of the overuse of ”who is the daddy” stories..
enough is too much of who’s your daddy, sigh ..

writers– use what little imagination you possess and come up with something new.

I agree. And once we have the children on the canvass, soaps often do not know what to do with them! GH has overused the “who’s your daddy?” and baby-switching tropes. I would love something new (and I do not mean more characters that have little relevance).

Celia
Guest
Celia

Oh, I sooo agree with you, SuzieQ.
But, look at that little face?!?! She’s too beautifully sweet!! And, Scarlett/Charlotte has an uncanny resemblance to Bree.
Yes, baby-daddy ‘mystery’ is sooo old, used and abused that we sort of flick it off, and move on.
As jaybird loves to say, on these boards, “NEXT”. LOL.

Patrick
Guest

would this ease Griffin transition’ing in Port Charles … ?

so he’s not … so conflicted… as a Priest / Dr. … ? that this will “help” him process “all the hurt” in his life … a beautiful daughter to move forward?

because YES… he’s sex’ual

time, right ?

I like the energy that Claudette and Griffin w/child could REEL

Patrick
Guest

which… always has me… wondering… @GH production why some couples can generate story for me… I’ve said this before… I like knowing that some couples are happy ever after… like.. Maxie / Nathan like ..Lulu / Dante NOT like… Felicia / Mac…. oy to the soap god ( s ) PLEASE… they’re the best thing about romance… on this show.. the upstanding guy…. bar owner / sometime police man… sexy the magnificent delight when Felicia shows up onscreen… there’s a glow about this WOMAN when they hug and kiss it out… OK GH!

Is there any point to trying to figure this out? After the writers admitted they didnt know who the GH hospital killer was going to be when the story began, there is no reason to bekieve her parents couldnt be absolutely anyone! She could be Lulu & Stavros daughhter, even though that makes no sense given her age! Who knows or cares…shes a plot point 🙁

Charlotte is Valentin’s but Claudette convinces Nathan he is the poppa…only Maxi is suspicious of Charlotte who acts like a mini Helene Cassidine and performs strange experiments on her Barbies and Beanie Babies…Princess Diana beanie now has Ken’s torso and Sunshine Barbie’s tan..Nathan is too dumb to believe Maxis warnings about strange little Charlotte-lol….seriously, Valetin escapes prison…Claudette flees to Canada with Charlotte but their plane crashes in a river…Claudette is missing and presumed drowned but Charlotte survives and is returned to Nathan to raise…alone together, little Charlotte terrorizes Maxi who miscarries hers and Nathan’s child…arriving home, Nathan discovers a note… Read more »

Oh, my gosh!!!! Oh, Jimmy. I can’t take it. I am having, real, honest-to-goodness belly laughs here. HaHaHaHaHa!!!!
I would like to be a fly living in your brain.
One thing, as I have already said when Claudette introduced Valentin’s name, Charlotte is his—-glad you agree. But, there’s always the chance we are wrong. ….never know which direction stories go. These writers never follow the standard. Themes are changed at the eleventh hour, where stories make no sense.
Example? Paul, as the hospital killer. That was a grasping-at-straws story, as I’ve ever seen.

@CeeCee….I’m still truly miffed that the sterling Richard Burgi was sacrificed upon the altar of GH’s ridiculous hospital killer storyline. It was a mess from start to finish….’twould have been far better to have had a loopy, med-induced Morgan go on a murder spree to get rid of all the annoying women in Port Charles…..Sabs, Nina, Alexis, Jordan, Val, Hayden, and yes, Claudette! Maybe even the evil Ava as his piece de resistance before offing himself!

Jimh…You have quite an imagination. But I really wouldn’t want to see another “bad seed” kinda child like Stitch’s boy on Y&R and the original actor who played Liz and Jake/Jason’s boy. On the other hand, never and not into Claudette storyline at all. And to think Burgi who could have been a GH flawed, leading man instead of a serial killer at the last minute, is gone to make room for newer cast like Claudette and Charlotte.

Hey, Jimmy,
Do you think there’s a possibility for an Anirbas showing up? I hope not……up to the rafters with twins—good twin, evil twin, dead twin etc.
Ironically enough, my own twin and I ( while in boarding school) would use pig-latin to communicate. We had our own little language going which only we two understood. Sometimes we still do it just to drive everyone in the family crazy. LOL.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Fabulous concepts there, jimh….but please NO Anirbas!!!!! I mean PLEEZE…it took four long, grueling years to get to the point of Sabs departure…can we just not enjoy it???? As for Charlotte, would she also not make a perfect “Lante” offspring ala that pesky travelling embryo???? I know her age is not exactly quite right to be so, but…hey, it wouldn’t be the first time GH has fudged a baby’s chronology for the purpose of a storyline.

Oh, no, jimh!!!! That is so NOT what GH needs! I’ve never been one for petition-backed campaigns….I’ve only ever “signed” one online, and that was for the return of Michael Easton to GH because I felt he was dealt with quite unfairly, and since I had been very vocal here about that, I felt it was only right to support him in that effort. However, I was quickly punished for my good deed….my inbox rapidly became laden with further “requests” from the crazy cat fan contingent imploring me to “save” their pet of choice. Despite directing their emails to my… Read more »

Why have they cast a 7-year old to play ‘Charlotte?’ I thought the child was almost 10.
This girl is adorable, but certainly doesn’t look 9-10 years old.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Ten? Wow! I didn’t realize Charlotte was supposed to have been 10, SZima. You are so right!! At this age, children need to be exactly the age they represent. The idea does not present a problem when talking about teens 14 to 18 ( and, that’s even a stretch)—-or 20 to 30, due to make-up, per se.
But, Scarlett looks her age: 7.

i don’t think its any coincidence that valentine is involve therefore theres more to this story then meets the eye, so if she’s got “nathan” dna and everyone still thinks he’s a cassadine, and valentine is involve, then she could be lulus and starvos embryo and charlotte was the sorrogate.

Who cares as long as it brings Valentin back. He was such a bastard the first time around that I can’t wait for more of his sinister doings. Loved the character the moment he was on screen.

Interesting enough I saw the actor in a light romantic TV movie…so funny to see him play a good guy, daddy, widowed fireman/restaurant owner/romantic interest. At first I couldn’t get past Valentin…and then…I saw all of the above. Acting…gotta love it. 🙂

Don’t care who she is, don’t care about this character or this story. Can’t tolerate Claudette and she can have Nathan as far as I’m concerned. He still looks at Spinelli like he wants to punch him again, same as he does with Griffin. Maxie should cut her losses and move on.

Soaphound…EXACTLY!!!!! I don’t see (or care about) the point where Claudette’s so-called daughter is concerned. And, besides, Claudette is ANNOYING ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!! As far as I’m concerned, bringing Claudette’s ‘daughter’ on to the show serves NO PURPOSE!!!!! AT ALL!!!!!

Have a good one, Soaphound.

Thank you. Like they say “speak the truth and shame the devil”. Claudette is irrelevant to the GH storytelling canvas. They could get rid of her character tomorrow and no one would miss her so why do they think we care about her child? This is the kind of nonsense that is destroying the soap industry, focusing on characters that no one cares about. I applaud CBS for listening to their viewers and getting rid of characters that viewers don’t like ( Sage, Dylan, etc). No wonder CBS daytime is number one. GH will never be number if they continue… Read more »

I agree with you LL2. But, some fans feel that Burton is leaving because Phelps left? I don’t know how much credence can be given to that, albeit I loved Sage. I think that she and Nick could have become super couple. But, in my heart of hearts, I always hoped, believe even, that Nick and Sharon always end up together. Much like Victor and Nikki. You are right, though……GH needs to start steering away from too many storylines and this influx of new characters. If said characters lasted, I would have a different point of view….but, this revolving door… Read more »

Okay isn’t Nathan supposed to be Valentin’s son with Dr. O? I know the father was supposed to be someone worse than who he thinks is his father. If that is true then the DNA test saying the little girl is Nathan’s could still be wrong since Nathan would have his father’s DNA– this little girl could still be his sister. If Ron C was writing this I would say the little girl was Lulu’s and they gave her some weird growth drug and that “little” Jake was somehow related to this little girl too- through some genetic tampering–but atlas… Read more »

We do not know if Nathan is Valentin’s son, Mary. This idea was thrown in there by Shay and me when Dr. O expressed the fact that Nathan was her son and not MadMaddie’s. I did not know the history, so I wondered who fould posdibly be more evil than Victor? Everyone was under the impression that Victor was the father….. But, Dr. O said that Nathan’s father was worse than all Cassadines combined ( I am paraphrasing) and had , thus, ‘given’ James (Nathan) to her sister to rear for his protection. I remember Shay having said that it… Read more »

I remember that, CeeCee, and I’m still sticking by that assertion. However, given GH’s propensity for producing storylines that come out of nowhere and often have no sense of historical proportion, another explanation as to Nathan’s paternity could be forthcoming…I must say that the actual character of Valentin has been a huge letdown for me…I truly expected an epic European supercriminal in the mold of a Bond-esque villain with a suave and charming exterior, yet an evil incarnate soul lurking beneath the polished facade. The fact that the Valentin we have thus far gotten “in the flesh” is such an… Read more »

I know, right, Shay?
James Stuart is so good-looking, but, not with a menacing face. He looks angelic to me. LOL.

PS. I love the mad scientists myself, Mary. I would gladly trade Faison’s bantering with Liesl, any day. And, yes, Aria’s idea that Claudette was the surrogate is brilliant, in my opinion. So, it would not be so far-fetched for Jakey to be enmeshed in this entire travesty. Great post, Mary. As I said on the Y&R site ( Steve Burton), there will be another Morgan emerging from the car explosion, after spending months in hospital. This new Morgan will miraculously be free of his bipolar disorder …….another distorted storyline on the horizon, where a Cassadine has a ‘hand’ stuck… Read more »

Wow! Whether it’s 7 or 10 years since this little girl was born, that is a long time that Nathan has been out of the mother’s life! That is a super long time to be pining for someone (even for me, LOL!). I assumed it was a couple of years at most.

I read some of the ABC soap digest today.. and it pretty much seemed to sum up “our” thoughts … frustrations… provocations… LOL…. dire needs

You know I have been critical of her over-the-top campy approach to acting, but today she brought it on. In fact, she out played Laura Wright’s Carly.

By the end of today’s episode, Harry, I, too, doubt that Sonny is the culprit. It would be sooo cruel, if he did.
The explosion is too obvious. This is an enemy of both Sonny and Julian…..killing two birds with one stone, as it were.
That is, kill Julian and the blame would naturally fall on Sonny. Great post, Harry.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
