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!

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

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.

I read all the comments below but I believe she’s there for Sonny she fits his type before Carly dark hair and petite in height. Remember Brenda, Lily and Sam

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!

You think he is wasting Michelle?!! I’ve never been much of a Phyllis fan, but I think Nina is fire!

Dancing with the Stars Juniors

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!
