General Hospital’s Teresa Castillo (Sabrina Santiago) is back taping episodes at the ABC soap opera following her maternity leave and the birth of her daughter Victoria!  Now comes word that the actress will be seen on-air on the August 21st episode of GH when Sabrina returns to the canvas.

The new mom told Soap Opera Digest about her return to the daytime drama: “I’m excited to see what Ron (Carlivati, head writer), has planned for the next chapter in Sabrina’s journey.”

So what do you think will be the next story for Sabrina?  Rumors have been that she will become involved with a new man in Port Charles, other than Patrick (Jason Thompson).

If that rumor proves true, who do you think should be the next romantic interest for Sabrina?  Let us know!

Sabrina Maria Dominica Santiago needs a hot Puerto Rican or hot Cuban guy..
Patrick is too old and dry for her; Patrick is like a male old maid housewife..
Sabrina is good to be rid of Patrick.. (she is young and sizzling)
She needs to get herself some young hot! stuff !

I agree; why? HA! One newbie ousted, let’s start on the others-no explanation needed-Levi, Kiki, etc.

I agree about bring back Carlos for Sabrina, as Patrick has no chemistry with Sabrina.

I agree. I only liked her with Carlos. I wouldn’t mind seeing those two together if she must return. I know the cast is more bloated than I am after a night of Margaritas and Mexican food, but I actually liked them together, otherwise I have no use for Theresa. Haven’t missed her a bit.

Agreed. And where has poor Carlos been all these months anyway? Still languishing in jail?

While I am happy for Teresa, I am just not missing Sabrina or her neediness for having Patrick in her life. I hope that the Sabrina who returns is stronger, and less man hungry than she was prior. Dirty her up a bit, she’s too vanilla.

I agree with every word…im going to give…reluctantly… Sabrina another chance…to see if they will take the character in another direction and make her a bit stronger like you said…

The actress does a good job, I think. Hopefully, she will be a little stronger. She’s the opposite of Robin, which I thought was good for the Patrick Drake character. She’s not “in your face,” righteous, or sanctimonious. I like Sabrina’s friendship with Felix.

I don’t know why anyone thinks Sabrina is needy. She is genuine, loving and real. When Patrick dumped her…she wasn’t needy…she was rightfully heartbroken…gave him an ultimatum/choice…and she survived. When Britt tried to sabotage her nursing exams…she came back and fought. Laura was and still is “nice.” She’s a homebody…she was a victim…and came alive when she went along on Luke’s adventures. But she wasn’t a Carly, Ava, Connie, Brenda, Olivia…she was…nice. I think soaps need nice characters to contrast with the complex agenda-ridden ones. Lila Q was “nice.” And no, I’m not comparing Sabrina to Laura and Lila as… Read more »

@rebecca1…..Once again, I challenge the notion that Sappy’s “niceness” is what turns-offs so many viewers….there is a vast difference between “nice” and “bland” (or simply otherwise, “useless!”) And that is where the others you mention set themselves apart. Lila Q. was a beloved member of a core Port Charles family and was portrayed with warmth, charm and class by a truly venerable actress with an impressive list of big and small screen credits…Anna Lee was a consummate professional who contributed so much in terms of talent and stagecraft to the show, as well as personified the gracious, loving matriarch of… Read more »

Haha Shay. Remember “Field of Dreams”…call them and they will come? If I’m ever looking for you…all I have to do is mention Sabrina and I know you’ll come to the board… For all your lofty presentation/rebuttal you’ll never swing me over to the “Sappy” side. And I don’t hold either Lila or Laura…or the actresses who portrayed them…in any higher esteem than any other soap actor I like. Yeah, they were long-standing beloved characters. They were integral to the GH canvas. So??? Teresa Castillo is fine in the role. Sabrina was met with hostility from Patrick/Robin fans and didn’t… Read more »

I also wrote sometime ago that Sabrina and Nathan will be paired…Maxi marries Levi so im sure Nathan will drown his sorrows in liquor and meet Sabrina at some bar…hope he doesnt cry over Maxi…we dont want to warp wooden boy…lol

Sabrina and Nathan? They would cancel each other out. That would be like pairing up white out with white out.

Kim

Really? I think Sabrina and Nathan are a breath of fresh air in a very stagnant and predictable show full. I also think a hot triangle with the younger set is very needed right now!! Don’t think you have much to worry about since it seems RC has no interest in really writing for Sabrina anyway…

I think Ryan Paevy has turned into a very good actor. His speech went from clipped, monotone and calculated to extremely casual and authentic. From his expressive eyes to his likeable demeanor…he’s really come a long way in a very short time. Glad they kept him on.

I’ve never cared much for the Maxie character, so I don’t see the spark between Maxie and Nathan. I do like Nathan, though. I think Nathan would be great with a hot, sexy character who has a lot of spark. Who that would be, not sure…?

Shay
Guest
Shay

The words “fun” and “Sappy” are mutually exclusive! She is a completely charmless character with a total lack of charisma….other than Levi, I can think of no male on the show who would deserve the awful fate of being paired with her….the rest are all far too good for her! Particularly Nathan….if you thought there was a mutiny over shoving her together with Patrick, just wait and see what happens if they attempt to force a duo with the presumptive Cassadine heir. Yet another extremely gross mismatch just waiting to go down in flames…..

Teresa Castillo (Sabrina) is way different in her other works, she is even funny.. She was cast as an ugly duckling, bad move from the start.. She was tied to boring goody two shoes Patrick and that did her no good.. Patrick does nothing but be be good and even when he is on screen he is just there.. I hope when she returns that she will have a change.. I would like to see Teresa be given a lively adventurous role to play.. Sabrina needs a darker side that comes out every now and then..

She should not be with anyone. No chemistry with any of the characters while she was on the show for over 1.5 years. TPTB need to get rid of Sabrina already. She is not even related to any character on the show. I truly do not understand why they are wasting airtime on a useless character.

I am glad she is back, she is a very underrated actress..She got so much hate because of the whole “Scrubs” ending…In in my opinion, I never really care for Robin or the actress that played her..I could take her or leave her!

I am sure that Ron’s writing regime will give the character a new direction..Make her Tracy’s long lost daughter..Paired her with Sonny, to make her his jealous young girl toy while he yearns for Carly!

Jimmy

I really hope she and Patrick aren’t paired up again… To be honest, I don’t see a point for this character, I barely noticed she was gone because of how unimportant to story she is… Sabrina is just one more character to write for on a show with an already bloated cast. She is definitely not needed, and neither is Carlos.

Shay
Guest

Touche’, Jimmy!!!!! This she-me is one of the most pointless characters EVER to trod the Port Charles canvas….it was such sweet relief to see her go. Why there is this inexplicable obsession to bring her back, I’ll never comprehend. The only acceptable storyline for Sappy would be to disappear (permanently) over the Bermuda Triangle during her return flight on AirJuanOne! And speaking of, will the illustrious “Juan” be escorting his worthless cousin back( to where she is neither wanted nor needed) with his usual flourish and fanfare????? Just wondering……

Teresa Castillo (Sabrina) is ‘young’ beautiful, great body, good actress..
They need to sex her up, dirty her up a bit, and pair her with a hot Latino guy.. !!
Patrick was too old for her and came with a trunk of baggage..

I really like the actress. I think she was given a weak story line . Unfortunately, she was written to break up a beloved super couple. As much as I love Scrubs. I honestly would like their story to end since Kimberly wants to pursue other projects. Maybe, if the character of Sabrina is written with the life change of loosing a child, potential family and future husband . She will be more deep and interesting. Hopefully, whoever she is paired with will provide her with an interesting storyline. I don’t mind her character with Patrick, if they write it… Read more »

Sabrina was never written to break up Patrick and Robin..
She had very little to with their ending..
Robin came back to Patrick, Sabrina was not involved thereafter breaking them up….
Robin left to save Jason, that also had nothing to with Sabrina breaking them up, Robin broke them up 🙂

@su00000….I never presume to speak for anyone but myself…..actually, that has generally been your m.o., and I have taken you to task for it more than once. However, it is pretty obvious that my negative responses to the few Sappy sycophants that tend to prop her up on this website are certainly not the only ones, nor are those found by numerous others on many GH topic boards. Quite frankly, Sobby is not that beloved contrary to what you (and her handlers…) may opine, and furthermore, she really has not seemed to have been missed, as has often been stated… Read more »

Since you mentioned Levi, I have to ask if anyone has considered the possibility that he could be related to Ellie? They are both gingers, and yesterday it was touched upon that he seems hellbent on preventing Maxi from reuniting with her daughter. Could it be that a brother is helping his sister hang on to her man and his child???? That would actually make sense as a motive for Levi’s devious behavior….we all know he is up to something, but what? No other plausible explanation for his deception seems forthcoming….and we never did get a handle on Ms. Trout’s… Read more »

Jin….You say that you hope a future pairing will provide your girl with some depth and interest, and that is precisely the problem with this actress and her character….she has none of her own!!! Over the past few years, Sobby was completely dependent upon everyone else to support her with even the smallest scintilla of a storyline, purpose and personality….she demonstrated absolutely no ability to create any magic through her own accord. That does not make for a soap opera success and by now this should be highly apparent to the clueless showrunners who continue to insist upon imposing this… Read more »

there are 2.5 estimate viewers and you have no idea what they all like or not..

Teresa Castillo (Sabrina) is a good actress and many, yes many, are looking forward to her return ..
GH has become very successful and that is due to the ”showrunners” (and talented cast)

I would like to see Sabrina with somebody other than Patrick or Carlos. Patrick will always love Robin in my opinion and will never be happy with another woman. That Carlos is a real loser and a scroundrel. I am glad he is gone.

Other than the fact that Carlos was in the mob…”other than that ‘little’ fact”…he loves Sabrina with all his heart. He offered to raise his baby as his own…he went to jail rather than have Ava go after her…he broke MY heart with his love for her. I wouldn’t give up on him just yet. Other characters have been redeemed…or at least have some redeemable qualities. Might be a good pairing…

Never have understood all the Sabrina hate. Ron created a nice character to live a fairy tale storyline – the “ugly duckling” gets the handsome prince. We knew from the get go of that that Robin was alive so there wasn’t really any tension and Sabrina’s storyline was carefully paced so that Patrick would have something to do in Robin’s absence (I mean, other than be a junkie) and Robin’s return would result in a soapy moment (dead wife returns just in time to break up the wedding of her husband). I thought it was all done more or less… Read more »

GH’s Josh Swickard Stars in HBO Max Film ‘A Hollywood Christmas’

Circle Thursday, December 1st! That’s when you can see General Hospital’s Josh Swickard (Chase) in yet another holiday film.  This time, Swickard stars alongside Jessika Van in A H0llywood Christmas streaming on HBO Max.

In story, A Hollywood Christmas follows Jessica, a successful Christmas movie director, who begins living her own real-life Christmas movie when a handsome television executive named Christopher (played by Swickard), shows up on the set.

Sent by the network to decide if producing Christmas movies are worth the expense, Christopher’s presence threatens to halt production on Jessica’s latest film. With Christopher looking over her shoulder on behalf of the network, Jessica now has to juggle: actors on the set falling in and out of love, an elf dog, and her own romantic feelings for the network exec!

As many are aware, Josh stars in many holiday films, so it’s a bit of send-up about a guy who is in Christmas movies starring in a movie about the making of one.

Warner Brothers posted tune-in info on their official Instagram a few days ago, sharing, “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… #AHollywoodChristmas premieres in SIX Days! Spend the #HolidaysWithHBOMax.”

You can check out the trailer below.

Will you be checking out Josh in ‘A Hollywood Christmas’ starting this Thursday? Comment below.

GH’s Kelly Thiebaud Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

In heartbreaking scenes on last week’s episodes of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud) gets the news she has feared for quite some time – that her battle with Huntington’s disease has progressed even further than she imagined.

The moments were all played with devastating perfection by Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, who has GH fans know will be departing the ABC daytime drama series soon.

In story, Austin (Roger Howarth) set up a consultation with a Huntington’s Disease expert, Dr. Talone. When the three meet to discuss Britt’s case, she learns that symptoms she thought were stress from being on the run a few years ago, and when she was in prison, were the early manifestations of the disease.

After Dr. Talone examines Britt, she reveals that Britt now has the signs of stage three Huntington’s.  As for her prognosis, Britt will have ‘significant cognitive impairment’, and while she was anywhere between five to fifteen years in her lifespan, it could be as soon as eighteen months when Britt will need assisted living and full-time care.

When Dr. Talone exits, Austin offers to stay with Britt, but she asks for him to leave her office so she can be alone.  Once by herself and overcome with the news she received (and looking at her framed medical license and business card which says that Britt is Co-Chief of Staff of General Hospital), she finally loses it and tears up her office.  Cody (Josh Kelly) comes upon her, when she is left holding the necklace she found in Peter’s possessions which are the diamonds of the Ice Princess.

Britt is in tears and tells Cody that when she found out her father, Faison had died, she thought it was finally over. However, his reach extends far beyond the grave! Britt is in disbelief that she wasted so much time seeking his approval.  Cody tries to calm Britt down by telling her she is worth loving.  Britt remarks, “Even with what’s been passed down to me?”  Cody is confused and thinks she is talking about the necklace which now makes Britt believe that Cody was only into her for the diamonds.

Later, in the most gut-wrenching and emotional scenes, Britt confesses to her mother, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) that her disease has progressed. Obrecht wants to get her to a specialist in Toronto, but Britt says she just met with her and she informs her mother she has five to fifteen years to live – and a year and a half before she may require full-time care.  Obrecht promises they will fight this. An overcome Britt asks her to just stop because she doesn’t need a doctor … she needs a mom.  The two embrace, but Obrecht cries Britt deserved a better mother than her. Kathleen Gati and Kelly Thiebaud were extremely touching and effective in these scenes.

When looking at the totality of the arc of this story that played out last week, and the understated and beautiful work of Kelly Thiebaud, it is without question Michael Fairman TV gives our Power Performance of the Week honors to Kelly.

So, what did you think of Kelly’s performances as Britt learns what she will now be faced with in the years ahead and the aftermath? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
