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’.

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!!!

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?

Nina Clay!

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!

Patty

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.

Short Film ‘She & Her’ Starring GH’s Carolyn Hennesy Has Premiere Screening With Support Of Daytime Community

A very topical short film in the post-Harvey Weinstein scandal and the #MeToo movement made its debut recently.  The film, She & Her directed by General Hospital production associate Nate Hapke, and written and co-produced by Y&R script and story coordinator, Rosie Grace, explores the complicated friendship between three women as they attempt to find their voice and tell their own stories in Hollywood.

The short stars the one and only Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller, GH) in the role of Poppy Sinclaire, a jaded ex-actress whose past comes back to haunt her when a young up and comer encourages her to publicly share her story of Hollywood abuse.

Hennesy’s co-stars include: Gwen Hillier who now is in front of the camera after working as a casting associate at GH.  Gwen has appeared on Transparent and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and the other part of this trio is Mackenzie Breeden.

During its world premiere of She & Her (March 30th at the Harmony Gold Theatre in Hollywood) The Young and the Restless’ Brytni Sarpy (Elena) and Kate Linder (Esther) were on hand to lend their support; as was former GH star, Chloe Lanier (Ex-Nelle).  (Hapke is pictured below flanked by Lanier and Sarpy).

Following the film’s screening, the cast and crew took to the stage for a Q&A.  The cast was engaged through a lively discussion about the making of  the film, and the ways in which the filmmakers tackled topics such as  sexual assault, without exploiting the sensitive issue..

Following this LA premiere, She & Her will be embarking on its festival run, screening at venues all over the world.

Screenings will be announced on the official She & Her Facebook and  Twitter pages.

The film is the work of P 1 2 3 Productions and Soza Productions.
