Today's GH: Florencia Lozano Delivers Another Heartbreaking Performance!

Fans of both One Life to Live and General Hospital were in for an emotionally draining and riveting episode on today’s GH involving Florencia Lozano!  The powerhouse actress who has been known to deliver some heart-tugging performance during her time on OLTL as Tea Delgado, such as when she survived her cancer and the loss of her husband, Victor Jr., now in Port Charles had to endure the loss of her thought-to-be baby boy, Victor.  In key scenes, Tea is informed by Todd and John McBain that her baby died and the baby she had come to love was Sam’s!

Throughout the episode, Lozano’s Tea struggled to cope, grasp, and was taken to the depths of despair, until she has no choice but to say goodbye to the little boy she thought was hers one last time!  Kudos also belonged to Steve Burton (Jason) and Kelly Monaco (Sam) for some very tender moments reuniting with their son!

And if that was enough, GH managed to touch us even further when it was revealed that today’s was Robin’s birthday, in a bittersweet and emotional scene between Jason Thompson and Finola Hughes as Patrick and Anna.

But at the end of the day, it was Lozano who broke our hearts. And even though we have all seen the baby-switch storyline played out before, where a mother says goodbye to her child and then has to hand a baby over to the bio-mom, and even though some of the dialog we have heard before in prior versions of this tried and true soap opera storyline vehicle, it certainly was a showcase for Lozano’s acting chops!

So soapers, what did you think of the performance on today’s GH?  Let us know!

So true! Get Florencia Lozano a contract immediately GH! She could want to stay in Port Charles to be near the baby she’s grown to love. And she could have visitation rights.

i thought her performance was over the top, she seemed so loud in everything she did, it was finally at the end, when she’s saying goodbye to victor jr, that she toned it down, but overall i felt she came across overly dramatic and very loud.

If that were You in real life wouldn’t you be loud? She is losing the baby she loves and she thinks she has lost Victor, Jr. which we know she hasn’t. If it were your baby you would be very loud and emotional also. She is having human feelings!

Human feelings or not, Tea WAS way over the top in her acting. Subtlety does have it’s merits! (It also saves the ear drums.)

Well I’m not saying or arguing about her reaction but the performance was over the top regardless, there’s no one right way to react to a situation like that. Many actress have done so I just felt she overkilled.

I felt the same way about her aria, she was just way too loud and overly dramatic for my taste, too.

Ces

I have to agree wiht Aria. I preferred her more subtle performance when she said goodbye to Victor, but her performance in John McBain’s face seemed a bit much. I was a little embarrassed to watch it and her tears didn’t seem very real quite honestly.

If her performance was any less it would have been Unbelieveable…This is what I meant to say in my first comment!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think a person in that situation would react in that way..It would get really emotionally…Having a child taken away from them & finding out it wasn’t theirs in the first place….Yes, it would get pretty tense to say the least….Her performance
was right on the mark…Any less it wouldn’t have been believeable….Yes it would be loud & VERY UPSETTING!!!! I think she did a acting performance!!!!!!!

I don’t care how loud she gets when she speaks her Spanish she has me sold a very pretty woman. I guess we are suppose to go ho hum another day huh I just lost a baby I have loved for months. The way she found out totally stupid and yes heartless.

I love this woman… Florencia Lozano.

I think she played it…. shocked, to the system- horrified, with disbelief – her life was crashing… and she was looking to McBain and Todd… for any semblence of hanging on to Victor…. and Victor JR…. with hysteria.

i’d be in a catatonic state…. de-void.

I sobbed.

Christy

I thought she played “hysterical” very well… but was oddly calm/angry when visiting Todd in police station. I’d still be lost… heartbroken… and weepy… not sure how many days later that was supposed to be, but I thought she was too precise on that visit to Todd. That kind of hurt would take a very long time to come to terms with.

Over the top? Are you serious? This is not a type of storyline or reaction that you can be “subtle” with. Florenica played it BEAUTIFULLY and completely broke my heart. If you are so offended by the “loudness”, turn down your television volume and quit being so overcritical to a terrific actress.

Aria
Guest
Aria

Yeah, like I said over the top just like you. Hey if you loved her performance then good for you. Different strokes for different folks. In my opinion it was overkill, in yours it wasn’t . It’s that simple so chill and don’t “over react” .

They all did an amazing job as usual for them. It was very sad.Florencia Lozano is a fantastic actress especially in the tearjerking scenes! It was a nice quick end to a sad, emotionally don storyline,

sorry I am not a fan of hers. Except for yesterday, every scene she was in she was always shrieking and yelling and always cutting people off when they tried to explain things to her. This past week when she was yelling her head off non-stop, I kept feeling the urge to smack her and to tell her to STFU so that someone could talk to her and make her understand what had happened. So I do I want more of her annoying, over the top yelling acting methods? Hell no! Not unless I want to go deaf or have… Read more »

As you say mute the scenes of Florencia if she’s to loud for you or you think she is over acting. I think there is more to your feeling about her than her acting. L

Nikki
Guest
Nikki

Wow. Your comments are incredibly childish. You are mad because she was “cutting people off”, did you ever stop to think it was scripted that way? Also she was yelling and upset because 1.) the child she thought to be hers was KIDNAPPED and almost KILLED, 2.) she discovered that the baby was indeed NOT her own. I’d like to see how your superior acting skills would hold up with material such as that- probably not a great performance. If you think she was “too loud” turn down your volume.

Florenzia was superb as the grieving mother. Love her character and would like to see more when we learn Victor is really alive. They can’t really have her around the baby anymore so it would seem she needs to go back to Llanview or stay for a bit longer to see that Todd gets what he deserves. The other thing about Monday and Tuesday’s episodes that affected me was the thought of losing Steve Burton when the baby is back and he is his real father. I soooooo wish that Steve were not leaving or that we knew he was… Read more »

The whole thing was a mess and complete failure on GH’s part. I adore Florencia. She is a wonderful actress but you’d never know it thanks to the terrible scripts she’s been handed. Over the top doesn’t even begin to describe. I’ve never been a fan of Sam but as of this week her character was completely assassinated by the writers as far as I’m concerned. To refuse Tea even the slightest moment to hold the child she’s been nurturing for months is selfish at best, criminal even. I am so disappointed in the lousy direction this show has taken.… Read more »

Guest

that struck me, as well. it was out of character for Sam….

Sam and Jason both acknowledged how loved and cared for “their” son was…. ie: they were looking at pictures of son and Tea on their cell phone…

you know… course they don’t know… that Tea was holding on to Victor past and memories… and Victor JR. was “all” she had left… it was heartbreaking for Tea.

hopefully, wishful thinking… Tea continues to visit port charles…

all things considered, with Heather… down to the wire… she was grilling… Anna… about Robin… thereby, giving us more Heather… down the road.

“To refuse Tea even the slightest moment to hold the child she’s been nurturing for months is selfish at best, criminal even.”

Gentlemen, I understand your side, but I also think it was Sam’s emotions being allover the place. She was desperate to have him one minute, scared to hold him the next. I can understand how she would feel with Tea wanting the baby back. Sam did do right by Tea in the end, but I understand her not wanting to let the baby go to anyone.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

it was in the next day’s episode…that Tea had the chance to say goodbye…

she asked Sam… if she could hold “victor, jr.” one, last time….

heartbreaking… gut-wrenching…

now, it’s, Sam’s time…

how will the “show” end, with Sam and Jason… its all been a tearjearker… ALL good.

It was gut-wrenching. I felt the same way when the characters gave birth and the babies were switched. I can understand how Aria might feel that Florencia was a bit over the top, but like Sharon B wrote, if you consider how you might react if it were your child, you might be loud, too. I had to rationalize how some of the scenes played out because they didn’t make sense to me from a staging standpoint. If it had been me, I think Todd and John would have been thrown into the walls for standing in my way and… Read more »

I do not care for baby-switch storylines, and would have preferred for Tea to have her baby and live happily ever after. how wonderful for the day when Victor Jr. is resurrected (I don’t like those plotlines either) that he would be reuinted wit his wife and suprrised by a son.

But the actress rocks her scenes all the time,. This was no exception.

I have seen baby switch stories before, but never as a MOTHER myself. I felt so bad for Sam when she was given the dead baby, but I did not cry until she was reunited with her baby, and not to forget to mention when she was told her son did not die. I have 1 and 3-year-old boys myself. I could not imagine going through what either of these characters has. I was crying tears of joy, tears of sadness. It made me very grateful for the lengths that my hospital went through to make sure my boys did… Read more »

I thought she was really very good as well but I also thought she was given the best dialogue and the most time to convey her POV of anyone in that while story and in that whole episode. The real parents stood around spinning the same dialogue over and over in their super short scenes while she ranted and raved- and rightly so- begging for an explanation that should have come one episode earlier. In that episode FL chewed up every last bit of scenery in her long scenes, while the babies parents stood around wondering, like me, why someone… Read more »

FL knocked it out of the park. She is a strong actress. Her acting was not over the top it was real. My partner and I were sobbing by the time the show ended. Get this woman on contract. GH needs someone to contrast the whispering talented types like KellyM.

Jim
Guest
Jim

Some people scream and some don’t. She’s had plenty to scream about, and I’d watch her sitting on a stool, screaming names out of the the phone book. People around here need to cut her some slack. You act like she’s a leper or something. That’s how she chooses to portray Tea’s emotions. Delgado has always been emotional and hot blooded. She’s a terrific, engaging actress who goes big with her work and there’s nothing wrong with that.

So, Flo, you, a chair, and a phone book. I’d watch you any day.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
