THIS WEEK: Elizabeth Hendrickson To Make GH Debut As Margaux

Photo credit: JPI Studios

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.

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 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!

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”

Both Van Etten and O’Connor shared: “As we were writing his character, we found out that oh, we have even more use for him! It’s helpful to know who the actors are in this situation. We have lots of ideas on how we can expand his character and cross-pollinate his character.”

As to how long Knight will be sticking around Port Charles, that was not offered-up, but what was is that Michael’s new character will mix it up with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) with whom Knight worked with on All My Children when James played Will Cortlandt.
