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!

heartbeat…. she needs to be Griffin’s

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 »

@Shay.
I know, right, Shay?
James Stuart is so good-looking, but, not with a menacing face. He looks angelic to me. LOL.
as yourself, I was expecting to see a Christopher Lee type. A’ la Dracula.
But, on the other hand, perhaps Stuart’s ‘soft’ looks is what TPTB wanted ……”catch more flies with honey’? 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.

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 James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

Photo:ABC

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Photo: JPI

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
