Trevor St. John speaks on Victor Jr.'s shocking return on the OLTL finale & if GH is in his future!



In one of the most shocking soap opera finale’s ever, One Life to Live pleased its millions of fans with the long-hoped return of Trevor St. John as Victor Jr.!  For months fans were reeling from the departure of St. John after Victor was shot in cold blood, by all accounts by his brother, Todd.  But, as was revealed at the end of last Friday’s final One Life cliffhanger, Victor Jr. was alive and being bound and gagged by wacko Allison Perkins!

In the latest edition of Soap Opera Uncensored, Nelson Branco spoke for a bit with St. John about how he managed to keep the secret of his return from all the soap press and all his fans for so long as well as a few other interesting tidbits.

Here are a few excerpts below!

Trevor on keeping his return in the finale a secret:  “It was easy. I just had to give non-denial denials. Nothing was pre-designed. They just said, ‘don’t tell anybody.’ That was as covert as it got.”

Trevor on Victor Jr. being bound and gagged by a another female character as his last moments on One Life:  “Well, he’s no stranger to that. He must enjoy it. He allowed himself to be raped by Margaret Cochran, if you want to call it rape. I guess he’s into bondage.”

Trevor if he would consider going over to General Hospital:   “Yes. I’d give it consideration.”

What do you think about Trevor’s comments?  Let us know!

I am stunned to hear this news from Trevor. The question is; does GH need another actor on the scene. This is all getting too murky for me. I think GH would have to completely change their direction. Right now, this soap is boring and the same old-same old……

Maybe bringing in a half dozen OLTL Characters is GH trying to change direction. I have heard so much complaining about this but,people are forgetting the real key here: we get to see a few of our beloved OLTL Characters again when we didn’t think it was possible. I’m hoping something good comes out of all this so,let’s not give up hope!

I am a GH fan I have to agree with your comment. They are doing a good thing I believe by changing it up. I personally want to see some of the cast change but it is the core families I do not want to see gone Quatermaines specifically keeping the Webbers is also keeping the Hardy’s alive and the spencers have become a core family and the cassidines are a part of that I think giving viewers of OLTL this chance is also great way to wrap things up there and also breathe life in GH yes I have been a fan of all of the ABC soaps for 30 years plus

And it is about saving GH and if that means bringing some OLTL people in to help that’s great. We want rating to go up. I would even think it would be OK to bring some form AMC. Maybe alot of the fans from all of the soaps would start to watch. I started to watch GH again. Years ago I watch but it got a little crazy but I am hoping this will help. It is all about saving the one ABC soap

I can not wait for the the OLTL crew to go to GH . I used I used to watch GH all the time for years. 15 to be exact and it got boring. Got tired of the same old Mafia storyline. Loved the Webers, Quartermaines, Castalines, Spencers. We’ve seen families come and go. Even on OLTL. It was once the Cortantlands, and Wallingfords. Now it became the Buchananans. Spice up any soap to keep them alive. Anyone on GH who wants to be selfish and to not want another story line intertwine is just that, “Selfish” .They should be so grateful and on their hands and knees that Katie Curik’s show hasn’t caused GH to close its doors yet. Because that is the word. SO if we want to band together. We have to watch together. The TODD, Victor, Blair, storyline is great and would love to see how Alison got mixed in there. Who knows maybe Sonny had something to do with it. That would be a great mix. Welcome OLTL to GH and maybe you can spice it up a bit. Even if for just a while.:)

Thats exactly what I’m thinking! Yes I’m very sad I don’t have OLTL but, only having GH left and the fact they are experimenting by bringIng some OLTL to GH is a very good thing. Please non-gh’ers look at this situation for what it is,”a last effort” so to speak…just sayin’…

Would love to see Trevor St. John in General Hospital. I mean how many mob stories can you have. How many folks can threaten Sonny’s kids. People are forgetting OLTL ended because ABC was being greedy and not because these folks were terrible actors. I think fresh blood in GH will be a good thing. I am also hearing that GH might go primetime…OMG

CONFIRMED: GH Rep Details Florencia Lozano’s First may 7th

As a devoted fan to TSJ,I waited for it during the last four weeks leading up to the finale and,I jumped in the air at one of the best finale moments I can ever remember! OLTL was my all time favorite soap and Abc made a really big mistake nuking the show! Give Agnes Nixon the Rights and make this RIGHT! Trevor I so adore you so,msg me on fb @shana madel ;D

Shana I agree with everything you said… OLTL is my favorite too. I miss them all so much

Me too! OLTL was the best soap! They ruined my afternoons by cancelling it & now they want to throw us a bone by moving a few characters to GH! Why is John going without Natalie? They are just doing this to finish the Victor/ Todd storyline before GH gets cancelled too. That ‘s why they’re bringing back such old characters from the past. They did the same thing on AMC & OLTL before they went off.

I was raised with the OLTL casting for37 years .I miss them all so I say alittle bit of OLTL is better then none.

ok I saw that Trevor was listed as an actor on GH. then when I went back to look at what site I was it on, POOF, it was gone. I want Trevor St John on GH. What the heck was the point of showing us fans he was in fact ALIVE, if they were not going to have him return. I mean, it is pointless to have Todd go to Port Charles is he is going to be arrested to Victors murder. PLEASE ABC/GH cast TSJ. I miss him desperatly…

You aint the ONLY one!

Trevor St. John. EMMY!
Roger Howarth who?
Trevor ORIGINATED the role of Todd. Roger Howarth is the GOOD replacement! LOL

I like both of these guys so im stuck in the middle.and would love TO SEE THEM BOTH IN PORT CHARLES.Im glad they tuned out to be two different people instead of ,will the real todd please stand up.I loved the story of 2 todds,and would love for it to continue on general hospital with both actors.I hear alot of bitching going on that the general hospital fans dont want any characters coming over from one life to life,well Im a fan of both soaps ,and to the ones complaining, soaps bring in new families all the time,so the mannings are just a new story to be told in port charles.I hope it does work out.all I want is a little piece of a couple of my favorites people from one life to live ,Its not going to hurt the other cast members in port charles,there are several newbies that are out ,so there is room for blair ,todd ,starr and victor.I want the story of 2 todds to continue,I thought it is one of the best stories on daytime television.what a perfect ending for one life to live,to see that victor is very much alive.

I would live to see them both on GH there both outstanding. And lets not forget there sexy also. please ABC dont tease bring them to GH

Bravo! The finale’s ending was something I never expected. I will be honest, at first I thought Allison was talking to herself then I thought that dastardly Mitch had found yet another way to cheat death and perhaps he was lying there in a coma or something.
But when the camera panned over to the bed revealing that is was Victor, I have to say that I jumped up out of my seat and was literally applauding and cheering in my living room!
I have always said that the idea of two Lord brothers was too delicious and would bring near endless storyline possibilities. I hope to see Victor(Trevor St. John) on the GH canvas soon.


I agree. I think maybe it’s time for GH to make a change as well. It would really create a lot of excitement. I think it could certainly use Victor’s dry witt and sarcasim.

I agree ,I would love for the story of two todds to continue,bring it on.

lets bring it .hey maybe Tai will find out some how that victor is still alive and come back with baby victor? hey lets hold on to that thought

He ALLOWED himself to be raped? Oh dear. Not a nice quote.

Agreed! Poor choice of words!

Agreed! That really rubbed me the wrong way. Especially given the history of the Todd Manning character, given that the majority of the time TSJ was on screen, that was the character he was supposed to have been playing. I would hope that that’s not how TSJ himself views rape (as a choice), and that this was merely a poor choice of words pertaining to the specific storyline, but even if it was, sex forced by threats of violence is still rape. And tossing in bondage jokes just makes it all the worse. Disappointing, considering the original Marty rape storyline was not portrayed as a joke. Why should male rape be viewed any less seriously? That comment really turned me off. He needs to think a bit more in the future before making such statements.

This from the man who also said his character could be sexually attracted to his own daughter/kill Viki, and who could forget “I’m all for gang rape.” I have nothing against Trevor St. John, but his perspective on Todd Manning and irreverence regarding the rape storylines are all kinds of messed up. 🙁

Yep it is kind of can be raped also Trevor !
Anyway i guess he doesn’t take all these wacky, warped soap storylines seriously and imo he is right, soaps are fantasy when people can come back from the dead, hook up with their siblings could you take some social issues seriously come on with stories like that, it is escape not moral compass.
And to see that some soap fans remain outraged by some of these stories and not others always amaze me..
As for the interesting stuff : seems Trevor will go to GH..ha ha Trevor i have a better advise for you : try prime time, it is where the good stuff are.

Yes agree with the last few comments. Trever you are a GREAT actor!! Don’t cloud it with ignorant comments about rape! Men can be raped. There was nothing sexy about the “bondage” scene between Margret and “todd/victor jr” It was a seriouse story line showing that rape happens to both men and women.

As for Trever going to GH it could be very interesting and can’t wait to see what OLTL will bring to GH!!!

actually the way to save GH is to fire the current cast, hire stars from AMC and OLTL reprising their roles, and change the setting from Port Charles to Llanview and Pine Valley. That would get me to watch every day!! there is one exception. Michael Easton should play Caleb Morley and not John McBain because he was better as a vampire.


I think you really need to ask yourself whether you actually want to watch GH or not at all. Let’s face it, he two soaps that have done poorly over the last ten years in terms of ratings are the ones you want to turn GH into. One good year hardly negates all the bad ones.

Personally, although I love Trevor and actually think Victor is a much better match for Port Charles than Todd, I don’t want OLTLers on GH. I like that GH is “realistic” and there’s a minimum of convoluted “Irene” plotlines and cartoon (think Mitch) villians.

I definitely don’t want to see characters like Patrick or Jason ending up in places like Eterna or the old wild west. If you do, may want to ask yourself is DAYS might not be more your style. GH should not be ruined to accomodate you.

Eterna and Buchanan City were the best storylines OLTL ever did! stories like that would actually make me want to watch GH as it is. The way it is now its as boring as the chew. Bring on the convoluted Irene Manning plotlines!!!!

Umm with all due respect saying GH is the only “realistic” soap is far from accurate. Remember this is the show that gave us “Casey the Alien” and a story line about Luke saving Port Charles from being frozen from a freezing machine the Cassidines came up with. Yes granted that was a long time ago, but then so was Eterna and the old wild west.

How can you say GH is “realistic”? When have you EVER seen the mob get away with shooting up the WHOLE town & get always away with it? Even Gotti got busted! NEVER would a SON of a mobster be able to work his DADS CASE, NEVER EVER!! When have you EVER saw a person like Helana?? How many hotels or some other part of town get blown up once a year? How many people loose children once a year? GH kills kids left & right.. I don’t know ANYONE that lost a child. I do know there are people that do & have lost a child but almost everyone on GH lost a child or TWO! Come on Alan, realistic??? What town do you live in?? I love GH but OLTL will bring ratings up & keep GH on air so be happy their on or we’d have no ABC soaps left..

General Hospital will never become Pine Valley or Lllanview.They may incorportate some OLTL actors on a temporary or permanent basis. But there is no way it will ever become Llanview nor should it be.

Remember that GH was always ahead of OLTL in the ratings. OLTL only started to do better than GH in the ratings after the cancellation notice because of OLTL fans tuning back to the show to try to make ABC change its mind about the whole cancellation thing.

I use to watch Gh right after OLTL. It when the alien story began that I lost interest. Then they had the man who played the alien come back as a regular charcter who looked just ike the alien. Ugh… then I just stopped warching. At least when the Cassadines were on there was suspense. The alien story line was just boring. I know Robin has been on the show for a long time but her character is also boring. The Sopranos tyoe of theme that GH has had over the years is what has kept it more interesting to viewers… but I still have not gone back to being a fan. Unfortunately now I have been recording it and trying to get back into it since OLTL characters will be making a debut. Hopefully it is permanent. If not I will most likely tune out. It is very difficult to begin watching a soap without knowing the history and no one there to tell you. My daughter starting watching OLTL with me and I was able to ans any questions about the past and how it tied in or related to what the present story was. I also did not care for the gig rex back in time crap.

Was pleasantly surprised at the ending of OLTL. I cried, scream and jumped for joy when I saw that it was Vic JR. Read the piece he did for Soap Digest and thought he is good at keeping secrets…..guess that is one thing he has in common with his character and twin (Todd) on OLTL lol. He did such a good job at keeping his return to OLTL a secret. I wouldn’t put it pass him to be going to GH and THAT WOULD BE A GREAT THING!!!!

I would love to see him on GH for the Todd storyline! I would love to see the brothers reunite, so it can be proven Todd didn’t kill him (which we all knew that anyways based on his 1-sided flashbacks), and to see them interact more where THEIR family is concerned. Plus I think they should bring Tea on for a little bit, just so she can see Victor and then have the baby! I think she’d be grateful and completely change her mind about Todd if HE were the one to find Victor and bring him to her. And should the baby be a boy, they should name it Todd Victor Lord, in honor of both brothers!

Love it !! Love that idea!! I always loved Todd aka Victor Trevor St. John and Blair together!!

Shouldn’t the baby be named after his father? I don’t think people tend to name their sons after their brothers, so why would it be done in this case? Especially since the brothers aren’t close. I wouldn’t mind if the brothers were close, but they are not, so this suggestion does not make sense. Soaps should have some kind of logic to them.

I would love to see him go to GH.


Ugh. Leave it to Trevor to once again discuss rape as a joke.

Agreed. He needs to work on the way he says things. He seems very lackadaisical or even bothered during interviews.

Oh please soaps stories are not serious so Trevor doesn’t take it seriously, his right of course you also have the right to disagree, it is a matter of opinion about FICTIONAL and over-the-top soap opera stories, nothing more nothing less.



I doubt it.

Todd;s voice was never on the recording from his flashback.

he did not shoot Victor. If you paid close enough attention to the episode where he was shot, you will know that Blair came to warn Victor that Todd might show up and that he probably has the gun that disappeared out of Dorians Safe…so he would have expected Todd to show up, however, he was completely surprised by whoever it was that did show up with a gun at his house.If it would have been Todd, he would have had no reason to be surprised.

Please bring on Trevor to GH!!!!!

Does this guy think before he talks? No, I do not want him on GH…

Carly grew up in Florida didn’t Blair? Or I guess Starr will be Maxie’s new Roommate

Oh please, PLEASE bring him back. At this point, I would do just about anything to get Victor on my screen and Tea too!

Not for anything but I’m so tired of the Vampire story lines already….YAWN! I like Michael Easton playing John and I’m glad GH has him portraying him, as for firing all the castmembers on GH WOW! really? there are some actors on AMC and OLTL that can not act their way out of a plastic bag and if anybody should be fired from GH are the writers, they are the ones to blam for the horrible story lines

Aside from the fact that no one I talked to was surprised that Victor was alive, it was the most surprising soap finale ever.

I would love to see Trevor on GH! AMC, OLTL, & GH were always “Connected.” Some fear that GH will turn into OLTL. Don’t see it that way at all. It would be awesome if they actually combined characters from all 3 soaps on GH. GH would really be improved in my opinion.

I knew he wasn`t dead but I miss my soap! like screw the chew&revolt the revolution, daytime fans unite

I would of love to see Tea`s face to see that Todd was innocent because she over played it sometimes she knew that todd always loved Blair

Yeah, Todd/Victor allowed the rape to save Blair’s life.

I LOVE Trevor St. John! I was estatic that he was still alive at the end of OLTL! Trevor/Victor would be an asset to GH and they would be foolish not to take! I started watching GH in the early 70’s – most recently took some time away from GH as we had adopted a baby. I gave up AMC and GH, however, periodically check in on them but was an avid viewer of OLTL! I could not let go of my OLTL as it has been ON FIRE for some time now! The best Soap I have ever watched in my life! I would even take my phone off the hook at 2 pm till 3 pm as I did not want anyone interupting that hour! Any Actors or Actresses from OLTL will/would benefit GH immensely! Kind of a no brainer there. Don’t get me wrong, I still love GH but I am very hopeful that somehow Llanview and Port Charles come together here! I miss all of Llanview! I believe that GH can and will be saved and probably a thousand jobs at least if OLTL cast can make a transition to GH although nothing would make me happier than OLTL come back to life before all the actors/actresses are locked into long term contracts with other networks on other soaps! COME ON ABC/DISNEY – GIVE US BACK OUR SOAPS! IF YOU CANCEL GH YOU ARE GOING TO FIND YOU WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS THE MOST PATHETIC NETWORK ON THE EARTH – GIVE US BACK OUR SOAPS! ITS A WIN WIN FOR EVERYONE HERE! GIVE AGNES BACK HER LEGACY!

A Loving Fan, Diana M. Hege
well they all cheated us as far as I am concerned. All of the fans love him so much, and I don’t see how he could have done this to his fans, it was intentional with out a doubt, but for us Fans, that’s why we Love him,,,,YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT TREVOR IS GOING TO DO….i would love to be there with him when he debutes…and also of course invite someone else…I’m so glad that you will be on GH…now that you have denied deniability, we will know what to expect….Thanks you all, especially the writers, whom without you, none of this would be possible….

i love trevor BUT i am less than thrilled with his reponses…………….maybe he is still angry with what went on behind the scenes at oltl

Don’t think so he just doesn’t take all these unbelievable stories seriously and love to act in ‘risque’ outrageous twisted storylines, so much more interesting for an actor..believe me.


I would love it if Trevor went to GH! I would love to see several of the story lines moved to GH. It would really help save GH too. All of the Manning’s with their significant others should go as well as Natalie and John and if they could bring Ford back would I love to see Ford and Jessica.

I was ecstatic to see TSJ in the final scenes!!!! I had hoped and prayed he was somehow still alive … that he’d taped one last scene that we hadn’t seen yet. OLTL just wasn’t the same without him. Actually … TSJ is the reason I began watching the show. Since I didn’t watch when RH was Todd, it was upsetting to me to have him return and take the role back. Best case scenario would’ve been to have both Todd and Victor Jr on the show … so I TRULY hope TSJ will agree to play Victor on GH … at least until the story of 2 Todds is played out and we learn just how Victor was kept alive.

I was so happy to see that Trevor St. John made an appearance
in finale of OLTL !! He is such an exceptional actor of are time. I’m
looking forward to see him on GH !! I l knew all along that Victor lord Jr.
was still alive!!! Thank God!! But the shocker was Allison crazy quack
had him gagged!! How!! What a cliffhanger. So happy to see him
In the New Year !!

I think it would be phenomenal for Trevor St John to go to General Hospital!!! He is such an amazing actor and as much as I loved/hated his character, he made it so real and it was hard to watch him die off the show. I’m sure I was only one of the millions of viewers that was screaming “YES!!!!” when we saw him in the last seconds of One Life to Live.

I was screaming in Sarasota Florida !!!! I literally jumped out of my seat. To see T.S.J in the final scene!!!! I love T.S.J , he will always be My Todd. How fast everyone called him Victor. Not me !!! My Todd 🙂
I hope he does go to G.H. I watch G.H anyway, but it would be great to see our O.L.T.L. cast members there.

Would LOVE to have TSJ on GH!!! Loved the finale and loved that he kept the secret so well! I love GH and I am so happy that the writing will change and hopefully we can utilize that cast better and only make it better by adding other great actors!

I would love to see him go to GH.Hope he goes.

I would love to see him there but as a different character. I love Gh and do not want to see it turn into OLTL. The crossover is a cool idea to get some new viewers, but the Mannings are enough. I would much better see Roxy! She would be a great host for the Nurses Ball!

This has been the most boring week ever. Ron and Frank had better do something fast with GH. It is not that good and please, please bring back OLTL. I know that the Revulsion is not going to make it.

I watched GH years & years ago when the focus was on the hospital & great characters like Steve Hardy, Jessie Brewer, Heather Weber, Audrey March/Hardy, her sister, Lucille (who was fabulous),Peter & Diana Taylor, the introduction of the Spencers and the Quartermaines. Once they brought in Sonny and refocused the entire show around him I lost interest in daily viewing…though, I would skim the synopsis in the soap publications.

Bringing over some characters from OLTL, even if briefly, may help to refocus and re-energize the show. If Ron Carlivati & Frank Valentini can turn the show around and bring in more than just “who shot Sonny” stories they have a good chance of keeping the show going for a while. Though, I truly believe that ABC/Disney have no real interest in soaps as programming and will eventually cancel GH as well. But, there is always hope…..

I’m with You Chaz…….
I too watched GH Long ago ,for many years..from the beginning….And all during Luke and laura, And for a few years of Sonny as well…I loved The Orig Carly SARAH Brown, She was great in that role…I liked Tamara braun very much in that role…and stopped watching when the last Carly took over that role…..Too much Sonny..24/7 anfd it’s all about them…..Not good……
I would Love for all of The entire Cast to come to GH…LOVE IT…i do hope that happens.
I loved hearing from Trevor St John…I hope he gets to come to Gh ..I really do…I also want to See the fims he has made..I’m trying to find a copy…
The Ending finale of OLTL was BRILLIANT !! I LOVED IT.
I Love Roger, Trevor and the entire cast of OLTL…Best Show EVER on Television..Love it. Roxy (Ilene) and Tuc Watkins?? GREAT FUNNY STUFF!!
How can Anyone get through life knowing NO MORE of those two??LOL! I mIss them!

Even though Roger will always be MY Todd, I really like Trevor too. I would love for Victor to follow his ex-wife & bro to PC. Oh what fun that would be! Can you imagine poor Blair attempting to juggle Todd & Victor @ the sametime? LMAO YIKES!

I am happy that they showed Victor is still alive. I like RH & TSJ both & think there is a lot of story that can be explored between the two brothers & would love to see them both on GH…. at least until somebody wises up & brings OLTL back.
I am refusing to watch The Spew or The Revulsion & I am boycotting ABC’s sponsers.
The only thing I am watching on ABC is GH & Castle because of Nathan Fillion, and I am done w!ith Disney too. They are NOT nice people over at Disney!

I would love to see Trevor back on the air on a daily basis. He doesn’t have to play Victor, even though it would be nice to have that story resolved. As to him keeping his appearance a secret, face it if he had said he was returning it would have totally ruined the surprise factor of the final moments. He is an immensely talented actor and an asset to any program.

Trevor’s words on his character are appalling. Or they would be were he talking about Todd Manning. Obviously, he doesn’t get Todd and never has. It reminds me of the time he said “I’m all for gang rape.” Of course he isn’t all for gang rape, but it’s more evidence that he never took Todd’s history or the rape storyline seriously.

I agree. I don’t his appeal at all. Sure he is attractive but not anymore so than the typical soap star. The only similarity that I see between him and Todd Manning is when he has the sense of humor of a dumb frat boy. I wish the soap universe would quit indulging him. I do not want him on GH!!!!!

and you think he cares what you think ? bouahahahahhhhhhhh it is a freaking soap for pete’s sake nothing on it is realistic at least for the most part. And tortured, flawed characters are more interesting to portray, simple as that.

Would so love to see Trevor come to GH with the others. In fact, I would like all of Llanview to come over to GH.

Would love to see Trevor St. John on General Hospital. The networks have been too quick to destroy the soap operas, the shows that they have tried to
replace, I do not watch.

Well, that would seal it for me – if TSJ goes to GH! I’m not a fan of that show & have never really watched much, except for the Quartermaine’s off & on – but for this guy- I would watch!

I was totally blown away at the end..The end, why does it have to be that way? Give us our soaps back.

I am a long time ABC Soap Fan, and am happy at the thought of bringing some of the characters of Llanview into Port Charles. I have no doubt that Ron and Frank will make sure they keep the integrity of General Hospital and their core characters, while bringing in some of the Llanview flair. I liked TSJ and also think he would be a welcome addition to PC. BTW, I always adored OLTL, but found the last week to be so incredibily brilliant, although the minute we saw Allison speaking to someone, I immediately said it was Victor Jr., as I never believed he was dead, and thought that would be the best “Oh Wow” moment”! Kudos on a job so very, very well done to all those involved, and I Iook forward to the migration of some from Llanview to Port Charles!!!!!

Trevor was my favorite on OLTL. I’m not a GH viewer but I would become one if Trevor is hired. He’s a fabulous actor…..the very best the show had. By the way, I prefer when Todd/Victor was shown to be basically good but with an edge. I don’t want him to be the total creep that Roger portrays as Todd. Just sayin’.

Euh but Trevor prefers to play a ‘creep’ just read his entire interview you will see..ha.
And in a way i get him, it is much more fascinating, challenging and interesting for an actor, of course the character has to have flaws and qualities otherwise one-note villians are boring like are goodie two shoes characters..

I’ve been saying for months and months, since OLTL first let him go, that Days of Our Lives should cast him as Peter Blake! He’d be perfect! I’d love to see him sharing the screen with Joseph Mascolo and James Scott – it’d be soap dynamite!

Great idea! I loveTSJ

i have better : how transfer Mascolo and Scott on GH ? They are great actors but Days now is a dreadful BORE, Ej is now a boring one-note villian and Stefano a useless boring ‘nice’ grandpa, awful and so much waste..maybe the ex- OLTL writers who are taking charge of GH can use them better…who knows.

I love Trevor St John! I live to write for him. ( He is fascinating to watch. There is a one-two punch in daytime enraptured villany: TSJ and Michael Muhney (Y&R). Love to watch both actors. The cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers! That was OLTL! When my sister called me to tell me TSJ was there at the end, I whooped at work! Couldn’t wait to get home–I had virtually stopped watching OLTL but I’d taped the finale! I was thrilled to meet and talk with TSJ at his last FAN EVENT in August. He advised us to “keep watching”. Was the finale what he meant or the loyalty to OLTL in general? I do not like GH, but if TSJ is there, I’ll view faithfully. My sister would like that. She’s a devout GH fan!

Ah to watch Michael Muhney with Trevor St John on a prime time show would be awesome, i would even say terrific..hope one day it happens..

I would LOVE to see Blair and Todd end up in Port Charles, and get wise to the fact that Victor IS still alive. This would be a GREAT reason for bringing John McBain and possibly even Bo Buchanan to Port Charles to dig in to the mystery surrounding Victor, Jr. John and Bo could quickly discover the truth about Victor, Jr., and free him. Then Tomas Delgado would have ample reason for bringing Te’a to Port Charles to reunite with Victor. This would leave Todd and Blair free to go somewhere far, far away to enjoy THEIR happily ever after. And it would ALSO leave Victor and Te’a free to go somewhere far, far away to enoy THEIR happily ever after. I believe that OLTL fans MIGHT feel encouraged to follow their favorites to General Hospital IF those fans believed they would finally be able to see their favorites enjoy the Happily Ever After endings which the fans were denied by the cobbled-up finale which the Prospect Park mess saddled One Life to Live with! Then John, Bo and Tomas could remain in Port Charles to help the bumbling Port Charles Police Department end mob rule in Port Charles for good and always. For good measure, they could also invite Robert and Anna Scorpio to turn up in Port Charles to help the PCPD put some WSB gusto into the PCPD’s renewed interest in ending mob rule in Port Charles for good. Since the OLTL writers never seemed to have much of a problem with allowing their police officers to act like they still had their brains intact, the General Hospital ratings would probably shoot up over night – just because the action between the police and the mobsters would suddenly become more interesting than it has been for more than a decade now!

‘happily ever after’ with only ‘good’ guys is boring, maybe you will like it but be sure many other viewers will not and the ratings will drop again and goodbye your soap..mark my words.

I think that it is pretty obvious that General Hospital’s days are ALREADY numbered. Bringing enough OLTL viewers over to GH to give the show a modest ratings boost MIGHT buy the show a few more months on the air – but probably not many more. IF OLTL fans believe that the MIGHT be able to see the happy endings which they were cheated out of by the Prospect Park mess, that MIGHT give GH enough of a ratings boost to buy a little more time on the air. But I doubt it would be much more than a few months. It seems to me that the head honchos at the network have ALREADY decided that they want to be OUT of the soap business – entirely – and sooner, rather than later. The question is not IF General Hospital will end up being cancelled – but, rather, the major question is WHEN General Hospital will end up being cancelled. It would be great if the OLTL writers could make General Hospital at least watchable during its death throes, but they are facing a Herculean task and I am not all that convinced that they will be able to pull it off. The CBS soaps are featuring romance for Valentine’s Day. General Hospital appears to STILL be stuck in the same old rut – sending viewers a “Bloody Valentine” – and wondering WHY General Hospital keeps on losing viewers hand over fist!

I’m going to say something that some may not like. I didn’t really care for this interview and thought TSJ was kind of stand-offish. I accepted him as Todd has I didn’t have a choice, but I still think Roger Howarth was and will always be Todd.

Apparently, this is not an “indepth” interview. Sounds “on the fly to me”. Two questions answered rather quickly? I don’t think TSJ should be raked over the coals for that!

First the full interview is a bit more ‘indepth’ and long than that and secondly he is ‘raked over the coals’ only by some soaps fans who take all these stories too seriously.

You guys do realize that the reason that AMC & OLTL where canceled was cause no one watched right? They had low ratings… then they announce they will be canceled and everyone says no… and starts watching it to raise ratings. But if you had loved the show THAT much why did it take them being canceled for you to watch? I don’t think GH needs the storylines or the characters from OLTL they need NEW WRITERS.. and THEIR OWN storylines.

OH my god have heart…
Last I heard THAT IS WHY they’re bring in OLTL to save your show now.
You dont think They’re NOT looking to cancel GH next????

Actually if you paid attention you would know that Kassie DePaiva said ABC’s promotions of the crossover were overstated because she’s only going to be on a couple of episodes. Doesn’t sound like they are bringing them on to save anything.

‘Santa Barbara’ Episodes May See Light of Day Yet; Will the Beloved Soap Opera Come to Streaming?

For decades, soap opera fans around the world have wanted a chance to see Santa Barbara episodes again. The soap, which first aired on NBC back on July 30, 1984 aired for only 9 seasons until the network pulled the plug after diminishing ratings and multiple changes in writing and producing regimes. The show last aired on January 15th, 1993.

Santa Barbara was co-created and initially produced and co-written by the legendary team of Bridget and Jerome Dobson. At the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmys, Jerome was honored with the Gold Circle medal for his over 50 years of work and accomplishments within the medium. Sadly his wife, Bridget passed away earlier this year in January at the age of 85.

The show featured an all-star soap cast throughout its run which included, at times: Marcy Walker, A Martinez, Dame Judith Anderson, Robin Wright, Justin Deas, Eileen Davidson, Lane Davies, Nancy Lee Grahn, Kim Zimmer, Jack Wagner, Jed Allan, Louise Sorel. Judith McConnell, Roscoe Born, Sydney Penny, Todd McKee, Terry Lester, Justin Gocke, Nicolas Coster and many more.

During a livestream conversation on Friday, June 21st, Jerome Dobson and A Martinez visited the Michael Fairman Channel to reminisce about the success and ups and downs of Santa Barbara and much more.

Many people in the live chat and many around the world (Santa Barbara was very popular internationally) have wanted to know with the legal issues it appears had plagued the show for years, if there would be a chance that fans could ever see Santa Barbara episodes again, and if they could become available or streamed?

Dobson shared exclusively, “Well, there’s some legal footwork being done right now about that kind of possibility. There’s been so much demand to see Santa Barbara, and so it’s not totally out of the question.” Martinez (ex-Cruz Castillo) reaction to that possibility was that of “Wow!” That was also the same reaction by several viewers watching the live conversation in the chat, because that would be a soap dream come true for many.

So, do you hope that the legalities can finally be worked out and you could relive the seasons of ‘Santa Barbara’ all over again? Let us know in the comment section below. You can check out the live chat with A and Jerome below, the moment happens around the 56:18 mark.

Ryan Paevey Makes Statement on Why He is Stepping Back from Acting While Being ‘Grateful to General Hospital for Giving a Green Actor a Chance’ and ‘Hallmark for Changing My Life’

GH and Hallmark fan favorite, Ryan Paevey (ex-Nathan West) wanted to clear the air after numerous reports and rumors had him quitting acting altogether and what that meant for any future projects in Hollywood he may have had planned.

Paevey released an exclusive statement to where he shared what is going on in his life. Back on June 19th, Ryan deactivated his Twitter and Facebook accounts and he may have deactivated his Instagram account on Friday as well, or as of this writing.

For Ryan, the decision to change his current life’s trajectory came after a series of events; chief among them moving closer to home to take care of his ailing mother who is battling lung cancer and social media scammers.

Here is what Ryan shared: “Hey everyone…so first and foremost, I am a bit apprehensive that I even have to make a statement like this. I am certainly accustomed to a certain degree of gossip, but the past few weeks in particular have gotten out of control with speculation from third parties that have taken my words and expanded upon them to meet their narrative, or flat out misrepresented my words or misconstrued their meaning. I have always been an open book, and one who speaks his mind truthfully and directly, and it is unfortunate that we live in a world where social media makes it very easy to twist one’s words; I am often unaware it is even happening until someone from my team messages me in a panic, and so I feel it best to make a formal statement through HEAVY.”
