THIS WEEK: Elizabeth Hendrickson To Make GH Debut As Margaux

Watch for your first look of Elizabeth Hendrickson in her new role as Margaux on all new episodes of General Hospital.

The former Y&R Alum, who has been previously Daytime Emmy-nominated, will begin her GH run as a prosecutor in Carly’s (Laura Wright) case.  Fans have been very excited about the addition of Hendrickson to the ABC daytime drama series, because she will be reunited with many of her former castmates from All My Children and Y&R, including Billy Miller (Drew), Will deVry (Julian), and more.

Margaux is introduced when Carly’s arraignment arrives, in which she is dealing with the fallout from Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) tumble down the stairs, and for which she is being accused.  Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) will face-off against tough new adversary, Margaux.

Shelly Altman, co-head writer of General Hospital, told Soap Opera Digest, “Margaux doesn’t believe that Carly was insane, and of course, she’s right. She doesn’t like anyone using the court to their advantage in this way.”

So, are you excited for the debut of Elizabeth Hendrickson as Margaux?  Do you think she will be a tough-as-nails prosecutor? Do you think she might have a heart of gold underneath, or do you think she’ll be out for blood?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I am SO excited she is joining GH. I loved her as Chloe on YR until the show wrote her completely off the rails and continually destroyed the romantic pairings she had chemistry with (Billy, Ronan in particular). It will be fun to watch EH play a lawyer and I hope she has scenes with Billy Miller’s Drew. Hendrickson and Miller’s chemistry was FIRE back in the day on YR.

Can’t wait for Elizabeth to begin. Love the Margaux moniker as well. ANYTHING to relieve us from Sonny/Carly oblivion and that Griffin/Kiki debacle. Her first scene with Billy/Drew should be electric..may their paths cross soon!

Welcome Margaux!! ( Does mine eyes well to see you, Elizabeth).
I hope she will be tough enough to show her womanly ‘true grit’, albeit no one should be locked up for a crime one has not committed.
However, it’s fulfilling ( to the rafters) to watch, with glee, Carly go through a grueling time of it. Shoe-on-the-other-foot scenario. Kismet? Divine intervention? How Madame Defarge of me!!

Oh Celia, you had to mention Carly’s shoes. Now I’m gonna be wondering what size clodhoppers Pentonville will issue her!

Celia

Ha! Soaphound….I knew you’d get my shoe hint. I could have used another expression, but, I thought of you and wanted to gift you with my nonsense.
Thanks for replying.
I do believe Pentonville only has laces-free boat shoes. Very large.
You are hilarious.

She is Kim’s sister and Oliver’s birth mother…this plot was used a few years ago when Nathan found out Aunt Lisel was his mom and not her sister…and Kiki sleeping with Griffen, her mom’s boyfriend is just a reversal of Ava sleeping with Kiki’s boyfriend Griffen…and ReRon isnt even the writer here!!!!

Celia
Celia

You are most likely right, Jimmy….as usual.
As I mentioned on the other site, Kiki will be pregnant with Grif’s baby. That’ll stop the shenanigans between Ava and him.
His head is so full of sanctimonious and hypocritical drivel, it’ll be hard to accept his descent to the world of ‘sinners’. That’ll bring him down a peg or two.
However, Jimmy—there’s always an ‘however’…. I like the idea of him and Kiki.
I will always love Ava, but I do not stomach the relationship as strongly as I don’t like Anna’s and Finn’s.
The question is….will Griffin be man enough to tell Ava.
I think he’s inherently a stand-up guy, caught up in mixed ideals and emotions.
This is true soap opera fare. I love it !!!!
Get some apple pie and ice cream ….enjoy watching—great roller-coaster ride, this one.

Yes!!!!! I knew….I’ve been a fan since her stint at AMC, su…..love her in any role. Imagine Chloe as a lawyer?? Blows the mind. LOL.
Versus Carly, no less. Can’t get creamier than that.

I love Liz and excited to see her work. I have given up on Frank and his lack of love for GH history and writing for current “Non-Valentini” characters. I just hope he doesnt waste Liz like he has wasted Michelle! Plus, other than the hate filled yenta fest known as the “View”, daytime on ABC is becoming extinct!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.
