Teresa Castillo Chats On Her Return To GH & If There Is Any Future For Patrick and Sabrina!

On today’s episode of General Hospital, Sabrina Santiago came back to Port Charles and so too did her portrayer, Teresa Castillo (Sabrina).  As GH fans know, Teresa had been on maternity leave, and getting to know her new little bundle of joy, daughter Victoria.

When viewers last saw Sabrina, she was having some sort of a psychotic break over the death of her baby son Gabriel. She even thought she was getting married to Patrick (Jason Thompson) and put on the wedding dress she wore on that fateful day for her … when Robin (Kimberly McCullough) walked back into Patrick’s life at their wedding.  While Sabrina was getting some r and r in Puerto Rico with her family, Patrick and Sam (Kelly Monaco) discovered Rafe (Jimmy Deshler) ran the car Patrick was driving with Sabrina and Emma (Brooklyn) off the road that ultimately led to the death of their premature born son.  On today’s GH, Patrick finally had the chance to tell Sabrina what he knew thus far.  But as we know there is more to the story … Victor Cassadine (Thaao Penghlis)!

On-Air On-Soaps caught up with Teresa Castillo at the recent GHFCW 2014 where we asked her; what the mindset of Sabrina is coming back to Port Charles, does she see any future for Patrick and Sabrina in the romance department, what does she know about the rumors that Sabrina will be paired with another man on the canvas, and how has it been getting back into the swing of things with the demands of an actress on a soap and being a new mom. Here’s what Teresa shared with us.

So when you went back to begin taping new episodes of GH, after your maternity leave, was it hard for you?  Were you like, “What am I doing here?  I need to be home with my newborn daughter!” (Laughs)

TERESA:  No, no, no. (Laughs)  I was able to bring Victoria with me to the studio.  My husband Shane took some days off from work. He was able to come with me and so she was in my dressing room while I was upstairs working.  It’s been interesting trying to juggle it all!

When Sabrina returns; is her psychotic break going to rear its head again?

TERESA:  She has recovered and that psychotic break is gone now.  I think Sabrina needed that time to go home to Puerto Rico, and be with her family, and all of that.  So now she’s “mentally stable”, but still recovering from the death of her son.  You can expect some scenes where she gets filled in on what transpired while she was gone, and you see some stuff with Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel).  You see that their friendship is still there.

Courtesy/ABC

The rumors out there are that there will be a new man for Sabrina.  But, could it actually be her former, currently imprisoned flame, Carrrrlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise)? (Laughs)

TERESA: Honestly, I don’t know.  There are some things happening where I go, “Whoa” that’s kind of cool!  But the show has not told me what is going to happen.  So far, I have not seen her being with a new man.

You took a lot of hits and a ton of fan bashing for being the love interest for Patrick (Jason Thompson), and it still goes on.  Do you think Sabrina would entertain the notion of wanting to get back together with Patrick, after everything that has happened between them?

Courtesy/ABC

TERESA:  I think so much has happened that it isn’t even on her radar.  I think there is a bond between Patrick and Sabrina that will always be there, because they shared a son, and they shared this traumatizing experience of losing him. I think her guard would be up if they started to get back together.  I don’t think that could be easy anymore.  Her relationship with Patrick is not a blank canvas anymore.  There is a lot of baggage.  I mean, Patrick chose Robin (Kimberly McCullough).  So how can you just walk back into that and go, “OK, let’s try this again.”   Sabrina knew that Patrick choosing Robin was the right thing to do, no matter how much he loved her while they were together.  So, I don’t know.  I don’t know if there is ever any coming back from that.

What does Sabrina see is there for her in Port Charles after all that transpired?  Why does she come back at all?

Courtesy/ABC

TERESA: She sees Port Charles as her home, and where she has chosen to be and live. She wants to go back to work and that’s huge for her, and to get back to normal …kind of like me in real life. (Laughs)

Watch the scene from today’s GH when Patrick tells Sabrina about finding out who the driver was that ran them off the road and eventually led to the death of baby Gabriel below.  Then weigh-in: do you see a future for Patrick and Sabrina down the road?  Who do you think Sabrina should be paired with romantically?  Do you think we will see a stronger and more determined Sabrina who will seek more answers until she uncovers the whole truth about what happened that caused the death of her son?

I’m sorry just UGHH…UGHHH…and she came back with a bit of an attitude…the character has run her course…she should have rebuilt her life somewhere else.

Sabrina is back for a reason, I am sure of it. There is most likely an affinity; an affiliation, if you will, with one of the main characters. From what I understand, Sonny has a history with Sabrina’s mother? Am I wrong? I did not watch at that time. But, as with all the other soaps, I have familiarized myself with most storylines, either by reading up on them or through family members who have been watching for years and years. So, my theory is that there is a definite link between Sonny and Sabrina. His daughter? Maybe? I hope… Read more »

If Sabrina is Sonny’s daughter, and having lost her baby, i hope she turns into a cold hearted blood thirsty female dog(sorry, im trying to give up cussing including the ‘B’ word…lol)…and becomes ‘Serial Killer Nurse’ with a bad donkey(sorry again im trying not to use the dirty ‘A’ word too…lol) vengful attitude and goes on a murdering spree killing half the cast who first become ill from a virus called ‘FrankenRon Fever’ that the evil Victor Cassidine unleasehed unto an unsuspecting Port Charles…everytime one of his victims with ‘FrankenRon Fever’ shows up at GH, Killer Nurse Santiago finishes them… Read more »

CeeCee….Shay here. I hope you received my lengthy reply to this post. I had a fine rebuttal outlining why I’m so vehemently opposed to your blood-tie proposition.

Oh, CeeCee….I truly hope that you are incorrect, even though you are certainly not the first to suggest such possible lineage for this non-entity, problem child of a character….(As if Sonny hasn’t already sired enough darn offspring!) The very notion that after nearly two (long) years on the canvas there is still clamoring and speculation to create an identity for this lame, lackluster lass reveals exactly why she is completely unnecessary to the fabric of GH. The showrunners have yet to make a case for her existence, despite bending over backward to champion her with an almost constant presence leading… Read more »

Bravo, davlestev1!!!!! You are a man after my own heart (well, at least on this matter!) The only thing I can possibly imagine as being worse than the “sugary sweet, cavity-inducing “Sappy” is the new, not-improved “Sabzilla” with an attitude. Oh, spare me!!!!!

rebecca1….You state in another post that “everyone loved Emily”……WRONG! I couldn’t stand that one either! Up until the time Sappy was introduced, I thought Ems was the most grating, atrociously saccharin, one-dimensional character I had ever witnessed on GH, and I was delighted when she was finally killed off during that serial killer storyline. Of course, my joy was short-lived when her doppelganger was brought on, and once again, we were subjected to Natalia Livingston’s sub-par portrayal. But the fact that you mentioned her simply reminded me of how much the two of those insufferable ladies have in common. Neither… Read more »

Actually, I did say “everyone” but, LOL, “I” didn’t like Emily. Correction: I didn’t like Natalia Livingston’s version. Something about the way she spoke just grated on my nerves. I liked Amber Tamblyn…but they took her from tomboy to tiara. Just a whole different persona. I also resented how they had her favor Jason over AJ. Ugg! Even back then I was ballistic at how the entire Q clan, with the exception of Skye, berated and belittled AJ. Even Emily, lil, sweet, sugary, saccharine Emily always took Jason’s side over AJ’s. So, no, couldn’t stand her. But my point is… Read more »

i’m glad to see sabrina back, love the character, and yes, love Robin too, its possible to love two characters even when those two are “rivals” for the love of one guy, but i guess now neither will be with patrick so no reason for the haters to hate on sabrina, i don’t know who i want to see he paired with, just glad she’s back.

Shay
Guest
Shay

Guess again, aria…..as a proud member of the anti-Sappy faction, I have often tried to explain that the antipathy felt for this character has very little, if nothing, to do with Robin, or even by extension, the ill-advised pairing with Patrick. It’s simply a real dislike for the whole persona…changing partners or other various aspects pertaining to the “Sobby One” won’t make a whit of difference. I just cannot abide HER…..period!!!!

CeeCee

That is exactly how I feel about Sam and Sonny, Shay. So, inasmuch as I disagree with you about Sabrina, I get it. You express your antipathy toward the character well and I am grateful for that…you did not use the word “hate”.

Thank you, CeeCee!…I firmly believe that good people can disagree without being disagreeable and that there are far more preferable ways to express disapproval than with the deployment of the hackneyed terms of “hate”/”haters.” They are so completely over-utilized these days that they have lost their punch anyway and are now simply empty words for those who cannot defend their views with more intelligent vocabulary choices. Incidentally, I can truly appreciate your point of view regarding Sonny….I’ve never been one to fancy the greasy wiseguy either, although we part company on Sam.

I just think he looks a little too old for her…they don’t look good together… I always thought there was a special bond with Felix… yes they are platonic friends but THEY LOVE EACH OTHER VERY MUCH…. love is complicated so maybe there could be a chance….and yes I know he is gay, but life sometimes is complicated and you never know where you find true love! Keeping an open mind…

rebecca1
Guest
rebecca1

Elite? Just as you said…Felix is gay. They’ve never portrayed him as bi. Not going to happen. As for Carlos if they do decide to pair these two together I don’t see age as an issue. Teresa is in her 30s in reality…not sure how old she’s supposed to be as Sabrina but it’s not like Fluke chasing Kiki! LOL Now THAT was an age difference. Aside from that, even if there was a discernible one (which I don’t see)…soaps have been pairing all ages together for a long time…

You’re right…Carlos and Sabrina? Noooo!!! Felix and Sabrina? Not sure. I am no expert, but I doubt homosexuality is a state of mind. One cannot switch a button on and off saying, ” I think I’ll be straight today and gay tomorrow”. But, I like that idea. I absolutely love Felix…one never knows what could happen on a soap.

Glad to see Theresa back. She looks as pretty as ever. I’m looking forward for Sabrina to be given a storyline which will do her acting skills justice…..only not with Patrick. She needs to stand on her own two feet without having Patrick or Felix as a crutch. And, Sabrina needs a guy all her own who will complement her, not drag her down. Billy Miller as Jason Quartermaine is just the right age for her….I’d love to stick it to Sam. I know, I know…wishful thinking. Those posters who dislike Sabrina?

Yes – bring on the new Jason with plastic surgery, resuming his life now as a Cassadine-brainwashed doctor at GH. He falls for Sabrina, while Patrick falls for Sam. Then the big revelation & watch the chips fall where they may.

I believe there is a way back between Patrick & Sabrina but it going to be a lot of hard work plus Sabrina is going to have her guard up with Patrick because all of there baggage they have and it not going to be easy as it was the first time they was to together And of course Sabrina is going to have her guard up if she get with Patrick she will be worry that if she love Patrick and Emma that Robin will come back and Sabrina will get her heartbreaking a again

CeeCee

So, after all that, Jennifer, you think Sabrina and Patrick belong together? Nah, I think not, albeit Patrick feels comfortable enough with Sabrina to confide in her. Sabrina has shed her girlish fantasies…I hope…and, I doubt she is a masochist . I’ve been wrong many times before with my predictions …so… Uhmm.

Apologies. Not a fan of the actress nor the character, which I find superfluous and on the order of excess baggage. While I’m glad that TeCa had a safe delivery resulting in a lovely little girl, I’m one of those in the camp that have not missed her since she went on maternity leave.

Same here. Sabrina was a nice enough person. But, I haven’t missed the character’s presence AT ALL. There is plenty going on without her. I don’t see what Sabrina brings to any of the current “A” storylines rotating right now. She’s not a factor in Fluke’s plans, in the Sonny/Carly/Franco triangle, in Maxi & Lulu’s kidnapping, in the Cassadine resurrection, in the Jerome’s travails, or with any of the Q’s. Sam & Patrick do fine investigating the crash without her. Over in B-storyland, there is the Britt/Nikolas/Liz triangle, Jordan exposing Fluke, Nina plotting to win back Silas – how does… Read more »

I like that idea, Lori (my sister’s name). Anyone is better on screen than Sonny, who called Franco scum or derelict, or some gross name along those lines. That’s a hoot coming from him whose conscience doesn’t even bother him. Sonny has no qualms whatsoever having someone else rot in jail in his stead. Yeah, really cool guy!!

Cee,Cee, I agree..I thought I was going to spit my lunch out when Sonny started going off about Franco! Pot, meet Kettle…Wow! Plus, Sonny didn’t even look for Carly when she was missing..not one bit. Franco did. Sonny all but raped Carly in the office the other day. Very aggressive, like back in the Karen days. Anyway, Sabrina is a bit boring and she forgets her lines often. Still I like her better than Robin, but Patrick needs someone with moxie. There’s just so many people on the show right now, so it seems if she was going to make… Read more »

Haven…I thought the same thing! Sonny, for all his love, history and co-parenting with Carly, barely looked anxious when she was missing. (I refuse to say “went missing.” the most overused jump-on-the-bandwagon “cool” expression. is it even English? ugh! but I digress…) I could not believe that the writers didn’t have him in a frenzy…calling in all his men, calling up his contacts…etc. The only thing we saw was when Morgan or Michael came to him concerned…’don’t worry about your mother. I’m sure she’ll be okay” or some such bull shite. Let’s not forget he also threatened to kill Carly… Read more »

Exactly, rebecca. Carly is no better than Sonny, tiny little reptile that he is. She is his co-conspirator in AJ’s murder, and convinced Franco to keep silent, dragging him down with her. As misconceptual as the reason for keeping quiet may be, at least he is doing it for Her and Michael. But I question Carly’s motive. ….her son, or her lover, Sonny. I guess a lot of people without a conscience live a happy-go-lucky-life in Port Charles without thinking twice about their misdeeds, to put it mildly. This thing with Sonny will happen again. What a balancing act! Sigh.… Read more »

I don’t dislike Kimberly as an actress but she has made it clear that she is NOT interested in returning to GH full time. Since the storyline actively involves her daughter, they need a death or a great recast (Elizabeth Hendrickson, anyone?) I think Sabrina/Teresa is a decent actress who has been unfairly maligned by rabid SCRUBS fans. Face it, folks, Kim is NOT returning and GH needs to Keep Calm and Carry On. We already know we’re getting a nuJason- why not introduce a nuRobin as well?

Quite frankly, I have never understood the fuss over this extremely ordinary girl, particularly with all that “fairytale farce” tossed in, when GH already had two porcelain doll princesses in the forms of Liz and NuLuLu. (Both with flawless complexions, beautiful, expressive eyes, fabulous heads of hair and perfect petite frames….plus, for variety’s sake, there was a blonde and a brunette…take your pick!) Either one would have been far more worthy of and preferable for the “royal” treatment than the oh-so-average nurse.

Sabrina was first portrayed as a mousy, and in your words, ordinary girl…..perhaps that is the reason I was so drawn to the character. I always had a weakness for the underdog.

I don’t think Sabrina faced “fan bashing” because she was paired with Patrick. I think many viewers felt that she was front-burnered immediately with zero character development. Sabrina has been nothing more than a collection of character traits and no character. I think Teresa Castillo is an average actress but it’s been impossible to overcome the terrible writing of the character. Sabrina has been propped by virtually every other character on the GH canvas and made out to be completely good, saintly really, and lacks any substance or textures. She has constituted a massive waste of space and I resent… Read more »

Correct…but, I think she has proven herself. I am confident she will be coming into her own and won’t need any “propping”. …she has already shown her growing maturity and independence even within those few scenes with Patrick. I simply like her a lot. I suppose, because we were pregnant at the same time, I identified with her.

Exactly! Since when do you need every story to have a pairing. How about a smart Patrick unlike now after a forced ex pairing and a forced friendship. Sorry RC is dumb. Many want Sam away from Silas and Sabrina away from Patrick. How stupid is Patrick to not see what is in front of him. Forget that he did the same thing ignoring phone calls from Robin. Now he is ok with Sam who is technically a mob person but not with Jason who gave his wife her life back. Patrick is written like an idiot since he can’t… Read more »

I actually don’t mind the character of Sabrina. I wasn’t a big fan of the character when Theresa first joined the cast; but, I think she does a good job at portraying Sabrina-who is very different from Robin-not righteous or sanctimonious. It’s a nice change because Sabrina is not vicious or vindinctive (at this time) like Ava, Carly, even Nina. I also like Britt and Sabrina scenes, as well as, Felix and Sabrina scenes. But, I get why people would think the character is boring and lackluster. I think that will change over time.

Cathy
Guest

Sabrina is Miss Perfect and self righteous is Carly not Robin. Carly is and has slept with a man who was involved in her sons rape and never admits her mistakes. Robin admits her mistakes and apologizes.

Sabrina was being made into Robin but viewers saw it and didn’t accept it. So saying she is a nice
character is wrong, we don’t know a thing about her character.

I totally agree with you dmr, 100%..Teresa is a solid and good actress and she plays this character very well..I hope she gets a good storyline, that has nothing to do with Patrick..I am very happy she is back on the show..I been saying this for the longest, I hope she is Tracy’s long lost daughter..Over a year ago, it was mention that there was a another Quatermaine out there..So if the powers that be fallow their protocol like they did in OLTL (Latina and young Adrianna is Dorian Lord’s daughter from an old fling with a Mob boss), why… Read more »

lovegh, you obviously don’t know the Robin character. She is trying to protect her husband, daughter, Sam and others and that is NOT selfish but selfless. And the Disney Princess was to replace Robin since they made Britt so evil you had to like the nurse. They handed her EVERYTHING of Robin’s including her daughter, husband, friends and family. RC used Robin and the NB to make the Disney Princess makeover while trying to say it was about Robin. RC propped her from day one and I am so glad many didn’t buy into it.

Ya know…Emily…played by Natalia Livingston, was waaaaaaaay more a “saint” than they’ve made Sabrina, yet everyone loved Emily.

GH has always had a few “angelical” characters on to balance the manipulative narcissists…and Sabrina, up to this point, is one of the aforementioned.

I remain in Sabrina’s camp. I’m rooitng for the character; she’s one of the lights in the dark…. She’s grounded. I think we’d all be lucky to know someone like Sabrina (and Felix) in real life.

Well, if Robin’s man did not want to be messed with, then it would not have happened. Takes two to tango, as the saying goes. Also, Patrick’s manhood went a few rounds in the rink and has been knocked down more than once. So, unless he picks himself up and stops whining like a schoolgirl, he will never recapture it. Move on, Patrick.!!

If the mag polls meant anything, Scrubs would be together now. Scrub fans won many polls and RC didn’t care. Scrub fans stopped voting on them a long time ago. There are only four soaps. They mean nothing,

Soap opera publications do not present an accurate barometer of public opinion. Fan clubs buy up the newsstand copies and send in votes en masse….that used to be why DOOL constantly swept the viewer awards, as they had the best organized fan support….PR companies also have a huge hand in these efforts. There is nothing grassroots about the feedback you see in those magazines!

Cathy…would you and other diehard fans be happy with a reunited Scrubs if there was a new actress playing Robin? Because as you know….KM is not coming back full time. So, regardless of who’s doing what polls where with how many votes there would not have been a Scrubs “back together now.” Not as along as they’re keeping RM on a recurring (when she can find the time) basis. As for popularity, Teresa has 30-something thousand followers on her Twitter account. That’s not bad for a relatively new character who took months off to boot. I think the naysayers are… Read more »

There’s not a lot to choose from…. Carly is now with Sonny, Julian with Alexis, Fluke / Tracy, Michael and yucky kiki, Franco possibly Nina as they have fun chemistry…, silas with Sam, Patrick with ???, Elizabeth with Nickolas? Britt with ? Guess Monica gets nothing, Maxie with sexy pants, lLulu with dante, Shawn with Jordan, then of course the kids of the show. Ava is loveless at the moment and now so is Sabrina.

Would still like to know why ONLY Scrub fans get called out for supposedly giving this actress Teresa a hard time? It isn’t, and wasn’t in past, just Scrub fans who didn’t like Sanrina. GH would know that if they read the boards and knew how to read them without falling for the agendas. Yet these same people who blame Scrub fans don’t call out Patrina fans for what they do to Kimberly not just as a character but as an actress. What about calling out other fan bases who do the same thing? .Seem unfair to me. And for… Read more »

Amen to you, Cathy. For a considerable duration of the Scorpio/Drake romance, I was most definitely not a self-described “Scrubs” aficionado….I was rather a “take them or leave them” sort of viewer, actually pretty neutral. I became much more of a champion for the couple after the commencing of the Robin kidnapping storyline, and most especially, due to the imposing interjection of that grating, gimmick-laden girl nurse onto the GH canvas. Her constant presence and propping by long-time and far more talented cast members was beyond exasperating and annoying. Even after suffering nearly two years of her nauseating nonsense, so… Read more »

I can’t understand why the character of Sabrina is needed unless it is to bounce off the character of Felix (I love Felix). She is boring and little-girl like. The only persons she has any chemistry with are Felix, Emma and Carlos. Felix is gay, Emma is a child and Carlos is in jail…what possible storyline can she possibly have unless it is to double up on who caused the car accident and Sam and Patrick are already doing that. I get really restless any more when I am watching GH because they start a storyline and then leave the… Read more »

Dawnhaze, you must have missed that episode last week when Alice had the transplant. She’s okay now. I get annoyed too, when we have to wait a week to see what happens in another story line. But it’s because there are WAY too many characters on GH right now, they should trim the cast down a bit. I think that the Luke story will be over by October. Isn’t Tony Geary is supposed to be retiring, before the end of the year?

I think the reason there are so many characters is that they’re experimenting with the “mega” soap. It’s an interesting concept to me…and I like it. With the loss of so many shows…and so many soap actors who were left unemployed, I think it’s fun to see familiar faces (and new ones) popping up. It’s a gradual shift from a core smaller cast, but I think they’ve been juggling things rather well. The only time I noticed a real incredibly infuriating lag was when they had AJ languish in jail…with nary a mention of his name. Michael barely mentioned his… Read more »

Hi Rebecca1:…. I respect your fondness for the Sam character. Perhaps I employed poor word choice. I did not mean to sound so vicious and vindictive. What upsets me about Sam is the fact that she calls the kettle black. She is on this mission to prove that Nina is a barracuda. Agreed, Nina is not mentally stable, but she is still Silas’s wife, and this couple should be given the chance to see if this marriage could still be viable, even after all this time.

General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn Chats On Her Daytime Emmy-Nominated Performance and Its Significance

When the nominations were revealed for the 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, General Hospital mainstay, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis), was recognized for her stunning work in the Alexis-centric standalone episode which honored her 25th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series.

Grahn, is already a two-time Daytime Emmy winner.  She won back in 1989 in a tie for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her work as Julia Wainwright on Santa Barbara along with All My Children’s Debbi Morgan, and again received the honors in that category in 2012 for her work on General Hospital.

Now. she is vying for the gold in 2022 in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category against other formidable actresses including: B&B’s Kimberlin Brown, DAYS Stacy Haiduk, Y&R’s Melissa Ordway, and her GH castmate, Kelly Thiebaud.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Nancy to talk about her decision to enter the Emmy race this year, her powerful and moving scenes, why this nomination is significant and important to her, and her take on some very important social issues of our time.

Always candid, insightful, combined with great humor and wit, here’s what Nancy had to share below, and make sure to check out GH this week when sparks fly between Alexis and Gregory (Gregory Harrison). Will he turn out to be the new beau in Alexis’ life? Stay tuned.

Congratulations on the Emmy nomination.  How do you feel about being in the running again, especially with the material from your 25th anniversary episode?

NANCY:  You know, I don’t submit myself if I don’t think I have something, and I didn’t last year.  This year, I had the one show, and the first reason I submitted myself was I had the episode that was worthy of the competition. These judges have to sit, and watch this stuff, and very often, it’s hard to watch soap opera scenes.  It really is, unless you’re in it.  It’s a different kind of material that most primetime people aren’t used to watching.  So, it’s tricky business.  I don’t want to put them through anything too awful. I don’t want to torture them and I’ve judged before. It can be a bit tedious. So, for me to submit myself, I thought, it has to be something that isn’t going to torture another human being. The second thing is, older women get marginalized the older they get, and they get diminished very often, and every time we get nominated, it means something different to me.  This time, to me, I want it to somehow be symbolic, or a shoutout to women who are still producing, who have been doing their job for a long time and are still doing it good enough, and that it’s still worthy of respect and recognition.

When we were at the GH Convention back in March, I played the scene on-stage for the fans in attendance of when Alexis goes over to the corner of Kevin’s office and heals her younger self.  You saw the reaction just from the fans.  It’s such a beautiful moment within the story.  What did you think about how the standalone episode was crafted?

NANCY:  It was a different experience for me because GH co-head writers Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor, and script writer, Scott Sickles gave it the attention, but even more to that, they allowed me to participate in the creation of it.  They allowed the director, Phideaux Xavier, to participate.  We all sat in a room.  They said, “You know what?  Make it how you’re comfortable with it.”  There were so many people who gave it time and effort, and Phideaux gets a lot of credit because he came up with a lot of ideas.  So, the little girl in the therapy room wasn’t initially a part of it.  That was Phideaux’s idea, and they let us alter things, and they allowed me to write some words that meant something to me with the character.  Our producers, Michelle Henry and M.K Weir, who I both adore, were also a part of this.

Courtesy/ABC

That is great to hear that you were involved in the collaborative process of the creation of the episode.

NANCY:  We read through the whole script, and we worked it like you would on primetime. We went through it like, “Does this moment work?  Does that moment work?  Does this make sense?  Does that make sense?”  We never do that in soaps.  We don’t get to that.  So, it was a gift to me.  It really was. Chris and Dan, and Scott and Phideaux, and the two producers, generosity in gifting me that experience and making sure that it was to everybody’s liking, was really very special to me, and it meant a lot.

Did you come up with the key lines which summarized Alexis as a person and her journey: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a fighter, and an idealist and an advocate?”

NANCY:  No. They designed it, but we were allowed to enhance and contribute creatively to it, and, we don’t normally have the time to do that.  They don’t have the time to – and you can’t allow people to do that with every episode, to be creatively participating, because it would turn into madness with everybody.

Then, when it came down to choosing the scenes from your anniversary episode to include for your Emmy submission, was that a challenging process of which moments to go with?

NANCY:  I just told a little story with it with the time that I had, and so, I edited it with a friend of mine.  I did a sort of pre-edit on it, I’m good at that, and handed the timeline to our editor, who nicely put it together. It took very little effort.

In my humble opinion, I think that episode featured one of your all-time best performances.

NANCY: Thank you. There was a nice effort from everybody, from the lighting to everybody else, and all the effort Phideaux put into it.  He worked so hard on that!  It was fun for us.  It was like the old days where you really got to work something out.

Photo: ABC

It truly harkened back to everything we knew up to that point about Alexis and her past as well, and included a montage of scenes over the years.

NANCY:  I think it was M.K. who put that together, but when you’re working at the pace we’re working now, to have to sit and put together a montage of twenty-five years, that’s not an easy feat.  Nobody has time for that anymore, but they did it, and like I said, it was really, really appreciated.  My only thought with it is that I wanted it to be relatable to other people.  I didn’t want it to just be some, you know, self-indulgent Alexis episode. I knew that by bringing in the little girl and talking about people being hurt in their childhood and how that makes somebody feel that it was probably relatable to many people, and so it became meaningful to other people and not just me.

Do you think you’ll attend the Daytime Emmys? I know the last time you won you were not present.

NANCY:  Yeah, I’m planning on it.  I mean, barring anything happening! (Laughs)

Does it feel nice to be recognized by your peers?

NANCY:  Of course, it does.  It always does, and way too often, women who are still producing well in their jobs, don’t get the respect and the acknowledgment for it.  So, that’s why I’m saying, this is no small thing, and that I want other women to know that I know that, and that I wish for them the same thing.

What was the reaction of your daughter, Kate and your fiancé, Richard, when you told them you were Emmy-nominated?

NANCY:  Richie goes, “What is this?  Your 18th nomination?” (Laughs). You know what I mean?  It was just kind of like, “Yeah, sure, why wouldn’t you be?” It wasn’t like, “Oh, my God!”  It was like they kind of expected that.  That was nice!  I’m glad they feel that way.  I’m glad they weren’t surprised.  They were like, “Sure!  Of course, you would be.  Why wouldn’t you be?”  I said, “You know, it doesn’t always work like that!”

Photo: JPI

Now comes the part of having to find a dress and all that goes with it for the red carpet.  Do you enjoy that part?

NANCY:  No, I hate that part.  That is my… oh ‘boohoo’, you know?  I mean, I have to find something to wear.  Also, the older you get, that becomes so much less important, and the more makeup, and the more hair, and the more foofy, the more ridiculous I look. I start looking like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.  You’ve just got to keep it simple.

You were talking about women and ageism.  Do you not feel that also exists for men?

NANCY:  It exists for men, but it’s not at all on the same par as women.  I mean, men still get paid more than women, and men still are valued more than women.  I mean, there are exceptions, but if you look in any place of employment, even the soaps, you will typically find the men making more money than the women, and the older the women get, the less they get.  Life’s not fair right now.  It’s fairer than it was, but still the equality game is not won yet.

Photo: JPI

I know how much all of this means to you in terms of equality for women, and people being run out of their jobs because of their age.

NANCY:  It’s just a reality.  It’s not something that I’m hopeless about, but I have a story to tell.  I’ll tell it when the time is right.  It’s life!  It happens in every field everywhere.  When my mom was 70, she was still producing the exact same way she was producing when she was 30, and she got run out, and was replaced by a man who was 40 or something, and there was no particular reason for it.  It was just, “You’re done.  We decided you’re done,” but like I said, it happens everywhere, in every line of work, and that’s why I just wanted to give a shout-out, when you still, after 36 years, can be recognized or shown respect or acknowledgment for what your do.  It’s a very big deal that I am appreciative of and grateful for.

So, rooting for Nancy to win the Outstanding Supporting Actress prize? Happy she was nominated for her work in the the milestone episode devoted to Alexis? Share your thoughts in the comment section below, and to tune-in to the 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards on CBS and streaming on Paramount+ on Friday night, June 24th.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: What’s Up With Elizabeth?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital, finally moved the story of the haunting of Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) along a bit, after it has been a very slow build for the audience. As it turns out, and with the new developments, it appears that Liz has been going in and out of a catatonic state, while sleeping walking.

With a tip from Violet (Jophielle Love), Finn (Michael Easton), who is chatting with Gregory (Gregory Harrison), recalls Liz was having trouble sleeping and was that she given a sleeping aid. He thinks he may be on to something so he decides to go to Liz’s house to talk to her.

Meanwhile, Liz comes to her house and tears Finn and Violet out of the picture that Violet drew, and then gets a scissors and starts cutting pieces off of the drawing, bit by bit.

Cameron (William Lipton) comes home and see his mother.  She does not respond to him and appears in a trance-like state. He is getting more upset by the moment, and then Finn arrives on the scene.

Finn is able to get the scissors from Liz, and also get her to snap out of her trance.  Liz talks with Finn and wonders what is happening? She doesn’t even remember how she got home.  When Cameron fills Liz in on what she was doing … cutting up the drawing and all … Finn tells Liz he believes she is the one who is haunting herself.

In tears, if what Finn is claiming is true, then it is she who is responsible for slashing her dress, setting fire to Franco’s studio, and hitting Chase over the head.  In that moment, a teary-eyed Liz recognizes that something is terribly wrong, saying, “What’s happening to me?”

Finn promises Liz they will get to the bottom of this as Cameron looks on.

So, what is happening to Liz and why? Is this just a case of another sleeping pill storyline on soaps, where someone does not recall their actions or where they are going in the middle of the night a la Nighttime Hope on DAYS? Is someone controlling Liz to make her do these things?  Is something else physically wrong with Liz causing her behavior? Share your thoughts on this storyline … and where you think this is all heading via the comment section below.
