Y&R’s Trevor St. John Talks Why He’s Reluctant to Do Interviews, His Sister’s Passing and Latest Film with Maurice Benard on ‘State of Mind’

It’s rare, very rare, that Trevor St. John (Tucker, Y&R ex-Todd/Victor Jr.) sits down for an interview.  So, what a fantastic surprise it was to see that St. John agreed to appear as a guest on Maurice Benard’s mental health series, State of Mind.

During his visit, of course, St. John chatted about the art of acting with Benard, but there was also so much more. Right off the bat, Trevor addressed his discomfort with most interview formats, and sitting down with Benard for this one.

St. John revealed, “To be honest with you, I’m really frightened.  I have a fear of public speaking. Normally, I avoid these things, even print. I kind of avoid it, because of this fear. I’m sure you can understand that the command you give yourself to be, ‘interesting …I’m being interviewed, be interesting’, and so what happens is my mind rejects any direct command I give it. So, I always feel I’m monosyllabic, and ineloquent, can’t formulate my thoughts.”  However, Trevor certainly got over this hurdle and opened up to Maurice about a myriad of subjects.

When Benard asked how his run ended on One Life to Live, while St. John wouldn’t address that directly, he did share, “I really appreciated what I gained, which is some friends that I have today: Michael Easton (ex-John, OLTL, now Finn, GH), Dan Gauthier (ex-Kevin, OLTL), Kamar de Los Reyes (ex-Antonio, OLTL). I still keep in touch with Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr, OLTL).”

Trevor added about his time as Llanview’s Todd Manning/Victor Lord Jr: “I was always appreciative, and always felt fortunate that I had that gig. There were hundreds of guys that would have taken it up just like that.”

Now, coming to The Young and the Restless as Tucker McCall, St. John shared: “It’s been a terrific job,” plus he shared how he heard that it was a great set to work at it, and that it did not disappoint when he actually arrived in Genoa City.

When the talk turned to Trevor’s 2022 film, A Good Enough Day, Benard shared how he was blown away by the film while holding back tears. Not only did St. John star in it, but he also wrote and directed it.  The story centers around a man’s battle with grief, something St. John knows all too well. On State of Mind, Trevor shared how he tragically lost his sister, Laura when she was just 15-years-old in a car accident. It is his sister who Trevor views as his ‘guardian angel.”

Check out Maurice and Trevor’s intriguing chat below.

It was an interesting interview.

Thank you both for doing it.

I love Trevor St John!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is such a genuine human being and a superb actor. Thank you for this wonderful interview. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for “A Good Enough Day.”

He’s funny, he’s sexy, he’s versatile… and he is a great remedy to Diane the Downer and the permanently perplexed Jack. I actually prefer him to the two previousTuckers, though they were good, too.

Love Trevor St. John! Loved him on One Life to Live and had the pleasure of meeting him at a meet and greet after the show was tragically cancelled- I was mesmerized! Loved the interview and can’t wait to see his new film.

How are you still upright after meeting him, LOL ?

Loved the interview but Trevor is so good Im so glad he’s on y and r he makes me laugh even without saying anything. He is such a good actor. I wish I had watched him on oltl.

I love this man & the brilliant job on Y&R. He brings something refreshing that this show has been needing. On a personal note I understand all to well about the journey of sorrow. I have lost everyone including my husband & my only sister. Sorrow is a personal journey that is often our greatest teacher. We learn from the dance but the step is never the same. We move forward bc life tells us too & so we do. I wish him many blessings along the way & balance.

Well said ….

I was thoroughly enthralled with this interview with TSJ. The privacy of his life and family is one of the things I like about him. He’s a true good man, and his family comes first.

Maurice was able to show every emotion from TSJ and his vulnerability came through very believable.

Extremely talented in many areas, genres, and it’s refreshing as hell to watch him !

Keep up the great work and enjoy your life Trevor !

General Hospital’s John J. York Reveals Potential Transplant Donor: “I Believe They Found a Match”

Promising news for General Hospital’s John J. York (Mac Scorpio). The actor who went public with his health battle shared Friday on Good Morning America that a life-saving blood stem cell transplant donor may have been located.

An emotional York told GMA, “I believe they found a match, perfect match, which will make me cry.  So we’re going to start our testing and do all that kind of stuff coming up here in about a week, and then I believe the transplant will happen, fingers crossed, in November.”

Through his association with the Be The Match organization, York located the now potential donor to help in his fight against myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders. “

York went on to explain the difficulties he faced in trying to find a match: “Many of my family members were tested and most of them were 6 out of 12; apparently there’s markers that have to be reached. So they were on standby.”

When asked just what the GH fan favorite would want to say if given the opportunity to speak to the donor that appears to be a match, in tears, John expressed: “Thank you for saving my life. For letting me spend more time with my wife and my daughter and my son-in-law and my grandchildren and seeing this beautiful blue sky.”

John has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years and until recently had kept his battle with these two blood cancers private, but came forward to clarify why he is taking time away from GH, and how he is been trying to find a life-saving donor match.

Watch York’s segment from GMA below.

Now, share your thoughts and well-wishes as John awaits the test results from his potential donor, to hopefully undergo this life-saving transplant in November via the comment section.

Jacqueline Grace Lopez Returns to General Hospital

Never count out Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton)! After her termination at Deception, and following her grandmother Tracy Quartermaine’s (Jane Elliot) blackmailing scheme, BLQ is set to bounce back.

How will she do it? Now comes word from Soap Opera Digest that Brook Lynn will once again go back into the music business when Blaze hires her to be her manager.  This will bring actress and singer, Jacqueline Grace Lopez back to General Hospital to reprise her role as Blaze.

The last time viewers saw Blaze was back on the April 17th episode of GH, when Blaze surprised Chase (Josh Swickard) by turning up to speak on his behalf in front of the PCPD review committee.  Throughout her initial run as the character, Blaze was tormented by that creep of a manager, Linc.  She also became good friends with Chase when they sang together on multiple occasions, and revealed her real name was actually, Allison.

This will mark Lopez’s third time on GH, the first in a brief role as a babysitter in 2015/2016, her last run as Blaze, and now her return.

Lopez shared her excitement on her return with SOD, and that her first scenes back are with Kate Mansi (Kristina) and Amanda Setton Lopez expressed, “I’m really looking forward to working with them more and getting to learn more about Blaze.”

Just how long Jacqueline’s stay on GH will be this time remains to be seen, but the show is looking at exploring more about the character of Blaze.

General Hospital Alum Vinessa Antoine to Lead CBC Series ‘Plan B’

Former General Hospital star, Vinessa Antoine (ex-Jordan Ashford) has been making a name for herself in her native Canada starring now in not one, but two CBC dramas. Previously, Vinessa starred in the legal drama, Diggstown from 2019-2022.

Now comes word that Antoine will lead the second season of the CBC series, Plan B and a whole new story. The second season of the time-bending original drama series is an adaptation of the popular French-language drama series of the same name (now in its fourth season for Radio-Canada).

On her Instagram account, Vinessa expressed on her casting news, “Plan B- second season! Giving my all leading another show. This one. Wow. Great writing. Talented cast. Special story. What a treat ❤️”

In story, Plan B will follow the life of Mia Coleman (Antoine), a Montreal police officer. In story, Mia is approaching her fortieth birthday and grieving the end of her relationship with her ex, and her ex’s son, whom she embraced as her own. At work, the constant injustice she faces gnaws at her own sense of purpose. Mia’s already tumultuous life is turned upside-down when a seemingly routine intervention in a family crisis involving Paul (Vincent Leclerc) and Keri Whitman (Sarah Booth) results in the worst imaginable outcome.

The show asks the question, “What if Mia and her partner Tyler had the evidence that would have prevented this life-altering event?” Through Plan B, a strange agency that can take her back in time, Mia will stop at nothing to prevent a family tragedy, and will embark on a journey during which she’ll delve deep into her own psyche, confronting buried emotions and an unresolved past.

Vinessa originated the role of GH’s Jordan Ashford in 2014 and played the part till 2018.

So, excited for Vinessa as she leads another primetime drama? Was she one of your favorite Jordan Ashford’s on GH? Comment below,
