I so cannot wait!!!

Can’t wait either. I would so much rather see this 80’s soap icon on GH then Genie Francis, a soap icon who helped build GH. So many new characters, so little time. Who would want a show that honored its history and didn’t need stunt castings to get attention?

Let’s just hope this doesn’t turn out the same way Joan Collins and Joan Van Ark did.

Love Genie Francis too.. Wish she was coming back as well. I never mind great talent coming to my soaps. Here’s hoping we get to see Donna and Genie too!

I think she is going to be Julian’s mother

Most likely Nina’s mother, and Julian’s backer, Silas’s mother-in-law. As far as we know, Julian’s mom is dead.

I can’t wait!!! I love Donna Mills! I am thinking she may be Julia Barrett, Nina Clay, or Olivia Jerome. Either way, can’t wait!!! Imagine her and Maura West in a scene together?! Whoo Hoo!!!

I think she’s going to be Nina’s mother but obviously be connected to more people in PC.

Looking forward to seeing Donna Mills on GH. I hope she crosses paths with Leslie Charleson (Monica) as the played sisters on the 1960s soap ‘Love is a Many Splendored Thing’.

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Maybe she is the mother of both Julian and Silas’s comatose wife Nina(Julian maybe never knew his sister Olivia had a twin because his mother left his father and took only Nina with her)…and since Sam is Julians daughter that would also make Sam the niece of Silas’s wife…maybe the actress who played Olivia(4get her name) could return as her twin Nina? I didnt watch when the original Jeromes were on so i dont know if what im saying is possible…just wish Donnas former soap sister Monica from their ‘Love is a many Splendored Thing’ days was part of this!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Ava should trick Sonny into marrying her, saying as his wife she cant testify against him if Sonny is arrested for A.J.s shooting…then Sonny gets off when Sonny tells the court A.J. is blackmailing him for the shooting because A.J. hates him…then A.J. blurts out in court that Ava killed Connie but will anyone believe him? Maybe Sonny will?

she “must” realize how BIG she is….

I don’t know what the buzz is with other sites… but, on here.. she’s getting a lot of hits

I can’t help but stand ready to defend put upon Joan Van Ark’ Valene… LOL

she was tough…. power magnate… big sexy… and drove her way

“Welcome, Donna Mills”

WOW

She is great, so we can only hope the writing is worthy of her talent— one of reasons her character on Knots was so great is they had some of the best writers around for that show– fingers crossed that RC is up for the challenge.

Jeff

Yes, that is what makes me nervous! I really hope the writing is done well and they don’t give her some ridiculous lines. I can’t wait though, just started watching this show in February since I knew she was going to be on it and wanted to try and figure out who is who!

I absolutely LOVE IT… and can’t wait!!! Interesting that they used the stripped down set of Maxie’s apartment… could Nathan be related or a part of her entourage? I adore Donna and can’t wait… this looks like it is going to be… so good!!!

Mary SF

I was thinking that Nathan could be Nina’s brother and that why he is so determine on proving Silas tried to kill her.

I think Nathan is Silas and Nina’s son..
and Donna Mills is Nina’s mother ..

ohh no, he is too old ..

Robert

I have this weird theory that she is actually going to be Nina! Everyone assume Nina was the same age as Silas but what if the reason the family thought he was after her money was because she was in a May/December romance? I also believe if Avaliable and Julian is involved it’s because Nina found out Ava’s. identity. Donna Mills character looks to classy to have been married to Victor Jerome.

Donna Mills is old enough to play Julian’s mother.

I love donna Mills, she is a sexy lady and a wonderful actress. Wow Donna Mills is 73 years old, she is a very classy sassy woman. I think she might be Julians mom, or sister Olivia Jerome.

MARK THE WALL!!! THROW A PARADE!!!!!!!!! THIS DAY, March 10, 2014, will go down in history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CARLY BENSON CORINTHOS QUARTERMAINE CORINTHOS CORINTHOS JACKS whoever…actually uttered the words “Michael is AJ’s biological son!!!!!!!” I have been waiting for 16 years and three months for Snarly to say those words and she finally did! To Sonny no less…the man who kidnapped Michael as a child and has claimed to be his father ever since!!! this gives me hope for the character of Carly, and hope for the entire Cartini regime…that finally…FINALLY…they have allowed the character of Carly to utter ONE line of truth speak amidst all the craziness and stupidity!!!! Thank you…I trust the coherence and lucidity will not last, but THANK you for allowing the character of Carly to finally say the words that are TRUTH. Contrary to their fervent denials and claims to the contrary…Sonny is NOT Michael’s father. Kidnapping a child, and hanging the biological father on a meat hook until he signs away parental rights does NOT make a father. And exposing that child to constant violence that ends with said child being shot in the head, in a coma for a year, and being brutally raped in prison…yeah…those things dont qualify a greasy mobster for father of the year status either.

Most logical fit for Donna Mills would be Nina’s mother, powerful, manipulative, and controlling, as owner of the hospital where Nina was kept, along with Jason; and now maybe Robin, and who knows of whom else. The list could include Stavros, Helena, Jerry, Faison, Olivia or sister, Silas’s father, et al. But since the writers try to stay one step ahead of us it will probably be some new roll we haven’t thought of yet.

Happy to see Donna Mills!! The story line stays juicy…Go GH!

This whole Silas / Nina story line has so many wholes in it. First of all, did the writers forget that Silas’ brother Steven Clay looks identical to him. Let the pharmacists choose between Silas and a photo of Steven in a line up. No reason to kill him !! Ridiculous. Now, we all know that Nathan is Nina and Silas’ son—NOT Nina’s brother. Hopefully, this will end soon !!!!

Lana

I think Nathan is her grandson,not her son. Maybe Nina had him after she was over-dosed and in a coma. Silas said she never let him see her. Maybe Silas is even his father.

GH Cast Members Kick Off “25 Days Of Christmas” Toys For Tots Holiday Drive – Photo Gallery

Cast members from General Hospital celebrated “25 Days of Christmas” with a shopping spree at the Glendale Disney Store for Toys for Tots.

On hand were: Donnell Turner (Curtis), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), William deVry (Julian), Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina), Josh Swickard (Chase), Eden McCoy (Josslyn), Chris Van Etten (Chet) along with the series EP, Frank Valentini, and Bill Burton ( Sr. ABC VP Daytime, Sports and Syndication)

Disney store | shopDisney will donate $5 to Toys for Tots, up to $1 million.  The campaign runs through Saturday,  December 15, 2018.

Frank Valentini, “Donna Messina (Department Head, Makeup & Hair) joined the family on 8/26/1982. To say her presence will be missed is an understatement. She was an incredibly warm, witty and all around great gal. Our thoughts go out to her loved ones.”

Laura Wright: “We lost our GH mom ……. you will be deeply missed

Genie Francis: “God bless sweet Donna Messina. A great friend and mother hen of us all. We went to her with our feelings, we could speak freely & we knew we were safe..and when we needed it, she would give us a stern no bull talking to, to set us straight. There was no better friend. Godspeed.

Dominic Zamprogna: “Donna welcomed me and treated me like a long lost Italian family member from day 1. Always supportive always smiling. Heart. Broken. Rest easy beautiful Donna.”

Maurice Benard:  “Sometimes you meet someone in life you connect with and unfortunately life just takes that person away.  And no matter how much your heart breaks you want to remember the good times.  My best friend, my sister, Donna used to hate taking pictures.. I used to have to grab her and hold her. And we would laugh and laugh.  I will never forget this memory, and I will never forget what you meant in my life.”

Nancy Lee Grahn: “My longest & dearest friend at GH was deeply private. I hold that sacred as I do her life & afterlife. Still, TY for ur kind words of support. Love abounds here today.”

Kimberly McCullough: Sending my GH family so much love on this sad morning. We lost a good one.

Jean Passassante: “I’m devastated about Donna. I’ll always remember her kindness in trying to glitz me up for parties, and how she was everyone’s wise pal. Or Mom. Thinking of you, Mo, and the rest of the GH family.”
