Fan favorite Tristan Rogers, who goes from playing Robert Scorpio on General Hospital on occasion, and now once again more often as Colin Atkinson  on The Young and the Restless, updated his followers via social media on when we can expect a “Tristan-sighting” in Genoa City, and back in action on the number one soap opera.

Tristan tweeted, “Back in Dec on Y&R for 4 shows. Loving it. Jan for longer.”

With newly-planted head writer Sally Sussman planning more story for Y&R’s iconic Jess Walton (Jill), what machinations might Colin be up to this time?  Most recently, he was trying to blackmail Jack (Peter Bergman) with the dirt on Phyllis’ (Gina Tognoni) affair with Billy (Jason Thompson)

Rogers has also been busy taping new episode of digital drama series, The Bay.  Tristan is currently in Australia visiting his mother before returning to the states to continue on as Y&R’s Colin.

So, what kind of story do you think Y&R should write or involve Tristan’s Genoa City soap alter-ego, Colin Atkinson? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

I love Tristan Rogers, so whatever show he’s on I’ll be turning in.

im glad he is back

Let’s have some drama for Colin—I vote for a cancer story or something in the lines of a medical crisis. Of course, I would want to see him come out alive but I do think Tristan and Jess could pull the strings of our hearts as we watch them both suffer with what ails him.

Tristan did cancer on “Night Shift.”

I only saw the first episode of that series—anyway, it can be anything just as long as it’s some sort of medical drama. I just want to see Colin in a new direction just so Tristan and Jess have some killer scenes to pull off.

He belongs on GH. Colin sucks!

He does but the GH ptb don’t bring him back for nothing but something lame like passing messages for Luke which was ridiculous and lame. Anna is back with the WSB, you would think that’s a great reason to bring Robert Scorpio back….But I look forward top seeing Tristan on Y&R under new writer. Maybe they’d know what to do with Jill/Colin.

Mysty, thats my one hope because you are right about the knuckleheads at GH, I hope the the new writers will use Tristan correctly as Colin! I would like to see him try and match wits with Victor!

Right, Mysty. GH’s writing team is so bad right now that they cannot do right by Tristan.

Maybe tptb at Y&R can solve that lame music box mystery.

Amen Timmm! They can call him Colin or whatever they want, he’s always gonna be Robert Scorpio first and foremost. Wish they’d have him back on GH for something a little more substantial than talking about embryos with Lulu and running errands for an off screen Luke, especially with Valentin Cassadine running amok all over Port Charles.

Dan…So agree with you. And not a token appearance once in a while. Would love to see Robert and Anna combine their investigating /WSB contacts to go after the more international stuff like he Cassadines (may they also live on forever to be a thorn in Port Charles side). And if they need help, bring Mac and Felicia out of mothballs, especially for the more local “mysteries.”

YAY!!!!

Ok….this is good, very good. I am so happy for Tristans’s return.
Is Travis his illegitimate child? This guy ( Travis) has to take root, somehow, if he is to remain. Perhaps he has inherited Colin’s penchant for the miscreant behavior.
And, speaking of Travis; I do believe TPTB plan to break him and Victoria up. Why else the running to bed with his ex? Why do people do that? Including women. Couples have disagreement and bicker all the time….’tis the nature of the beast!!!! So, they have affairs?
Anyway, the plan is to get Victoria and Billy together. So transparent. That’s ok, but with Jason Thompson? Nah!!!!! I realize the soap gods are trying so hard to throw these two together. I cannot get into them. Just my opinion.

Oh, Celia, you’re reading my mind again. These people behave like petulant, spoiled children who, if ANYTHING goes wrong, jump into a new bed for solace. Grow up, already! I’m not a fan of Travis bit I admit this shocked me a little. I thought he’d learned a lesson from his past. Guess not. And you’re so right about the chemistry-free Jason Thompson’s Billy. No way should he and Victoria connect. Oh, if only my dreamboat Billy Miller could do two shows!

Well, Soaphound; Fanny has a great idea……return Steve to GH; accommodate his needs and return Billy M to Y & R. Too easy? Yeah!!!! One can only dream.

Celia I was thinking the same thing. The GH fans want Steve Burton back because they don’t think Billy Miller is cutting it as Jason. So we can do an even trade, our Billy for their Steve. But where would that leave Jason Thompson. Him and his wife have a baby, I would hate to seechim jobless

Good call Cee, Travis could be Colin’s boy BUT I vote to phase out the light weight. We are seeing less of Stitch, Dylan is leaving soon, I want Travis out to. Lets build the show old school with strength! Cane and Devon are useless to!

Can you believe we dont like Jason Thompson on this show? Wow, I thought it would work, he is a bust!

I feel that Can’s leg injury is going to lead to something more serious? Cancer?

Bye love!

Hi Timmm I agree with everything you said with the exception of Travis. I think he is sooo hot with Victoria and that Billy I just don’t like with Victoria. The two of them just don’t mix.They can get rid of Chloe any day too. First when Patty was making all the phone calls to Sharon & Kevin told Chloe she thought it might be Adam then with the new writers Victor says Adam is dead and Chloe killed him. As if old Vic would just sit on that news about his family and do nothing right?Now the only way the truth may come out is if the Christian has his dad’s eye problem. OMG What a mess. So happy today to see Tracy Abbott back!

Hi, Timmmy,
Long time no talk. LOL.
Yes, everyone you mentioned should leave. I never liked Cane……the rantings about his good looks are exaggerated ( I do not see it). And, his acting leaves much to be desired. Too bad Lily is with him because I do like her, albeit many do not.
She was at her best with Daniel. But, that could be due to the fact that it was young love back then, and she and I are around the same age. We had a lot in common. I identified with her and those feelings stuck, I guess.
Stitch and Devon are in a league of their own. These guys do not inspire confidence or attraction. Stitch’s demeanor never changes. He is one-sided.
Devon? I still maintain he is twelve. Boring as heck with no personality. I do not get his coupling with Hilary. She is such a vibrant character, sexy, a go-getter….I don’t know, Timmmy. Maybe Devon has a ‘hidden’ talent? Ha!!
Travis?. Well, now…..I fell for him at first sight. Now? He is too weasel- like. I still think he has an agenda. However, be that as it may, I like him with Victoria better than with Billy ( Jason T).
As far as I am concerned, Thompson has yet to capture Billy A’s persona; his core. I doubt he ever will. ….too bland.
Luv-ya!! Later.

Cain’s injury will lead to an addiction to pain killers– unless new writers change the direction I can see that coming when on today’s show they kept mentioning have to give him more pain medicine–

Hey CeeCeeGirl!!!! Wishing you and yours a most Happy Thanksgiving….we’ve been so blessed this year, I’m feeling particularly grateful and festive. Hope your family’s celebration will be just as joyous as ours!

although not a huge fan of colin, it will be nice to see the chancellor set back in action.
Now with a real experienced headwriter at the helm maybe the Chancellors and Winters family can get some attention and the Abbotts and Newmans can get a temporary break
my suggestions would be to bring Nina and Chance back to mix it up with Jill , Billy and Chloe. Chloe s hopefully carrying billys baby, maybe she can get his brother chance to help raise her much against nina and jills protest. Have colin meddle with lily and cane who have nothing real to do. maybe lily can also mix it up with chance. So much potential outside the newmans and abbotts. Would be nice to add paul and christine with nina too like the old days

He needs to get back to GH A nna is going to need his help when she finds out that Valetine Cassidine is really Stavors Cassidine

With the return of some really terrific head writers, not to mention the new EP, I think the writing will improve for Tristan.
He certainly deserves better than what he was handed by JFP and Fronz. Give him his dignity back (although some might argue he never had it) and let him go toe to toe with Victor Newman.
I harbor some degree of hope that the new Y&R regime will recognize what they have in Tristan and do right by him.

What I dislike is Colin was originally written as this ruthless crime lord from Australia whose son Cain had to pretend to be someone else and go into hiding for protection when he turned Daddy dearest in– and when they hooked Colin up with Jill they suddenly turned him into a two bit con artist and not a very good one at that— like Jeff ( chelsea’s father) —- When Colin had this darker side he was interesting– trying to kidnap the twins, the whole mystery around the death of Cain’s sister that was never solved etc– so if they cannot make Colin back the way he was intended to be then I think they should cut the character loose–and his whiny son Cain can go with him–both have out lived their usefulness in GC.

I agree with this!! Send both of them back to Australia. Rogers may have his fans from GH (which I’ve never watched) but I do not like what he has done on Y&R.

Cane is even worse. How has this character stayed on Y&R for almost a decade??

@Barbara idiot fans and yes I call you idiots hired a plane to fly over CBS studios to save DG/Canes job amazing that it worked MAB another idiot producer ! Totally agree with Mary /Colin could have been so ruthless then MAB decides let’s give Genie Francis a job and yes I adore Genie but we create a worhless character Canes mom and the rest goes to hell. If this show survives the crapfest that we have been fed for almost 10 years it will be a bloody miracle

Love it, love it, love it, Mary!!!! Enlightening words you speak. Agreed.
At this point in the realm of Y&R, the best performer iiis..ta-da: Alyvia. ‘Faith’ is the adult among the adults. She is so good…this kid will take the big screen by storm.
I am done with all the characters Timmm mentioned, and then some. He also has a point about Cane and his ‘lame’ leg…LOL. good. I cannot stomach him any more.
As far as Travis? What a jerk. Fess up!! Coward. What will he do when his ex ( Michelle? Not sure….she annoys me already) announces she’s pregnant?

Good answers Celia. Faith can teach her whole clan how to grow up. She is such a terrific actress. She played Dolly Parton as a child a year or two ago in the movie A Coat of Many Colors and was excellent. There is a sequel coming out the end of the month. I’m not certain of the exact date, but it is on CBS, so I am sure they will run promos during. Y&R You alreadyk new when Travis and the ex were going at it, that it was a pregnancy waiting to happen, which of course Victoria will find out about as she is dressing for the wedding. That is if Billy doesn’t break up the engagement before it happens. Cane and his all American male attitude is starting to annoy me too. I think Lily should work at Brash and Sassy and let her hook up with Billy. That will really make Jill’s head spin.As for the ex of Travis, Iam still feeling her out as well. Her attitude is to snooty for my taste. I just hope they don’t shove the Travis ex with Billy and we spent the six to eight months of musical chairs. Time will tell I guesse

@soapqueenforever.
Hi, soapqueen,
What a great idea!!!! Billy and Cane. I would like that premise to be explored……anything to enhance Jason T’s performance. He is not working for me; neither with Phyllis nor with Victoria.
He is a good actor, but I see not the ‘grab me’ factor. Actually, neither does Tognoni. Her rendition of Phyllis is not the femme fatale I was expecting.

Yes, I have seen COATS OF MANY COLORS, last year. It was actually shown again, not too long ago. My little nieces love the movie, so it was dvr-ed . They watch it over and over. LOL.

Travis’ ex is a very hard-looking woman. No softness to her body language or, looks or demeanor. She’s focused on what she wants. I suppose she regards Travis as a business deal. Cut and dry. She wants him and that’s that. I am surprised Ashley had even struck a friendship with her, as she is the complete opposite.
Nonetheless, as I have said earlier, TPTB purposely brought this woman in for the sole purpose of putting a wedge between Travis and Victoria. They want Victoria with Billy. What a horrible prospect!!
Later, soapqueen.

Like Damien, I’m not a fan of the Colin Atkinson character, but with Sally & Kay back at the writers’ desk, I’m hoping for some good story for him and Jill (the wonderful Jess Walton).

Hooray. Love my Tristan Rogers. I always loved him with Jill. They can have him scrubbing floors at the coffee house for all I care, as long as I get to heat that delicious accent. I love when he has scenes with Colin, to Aussie accents for the price of one. Maybe he can team up with Jeffrey and
start some kind of business together. And along the way, Jill and Gloria can throw their snarky comments back and forth. Anything would be better than Hillary and the GC Buzz. She is l8ving herself way to much over that. I still hoping to see more of Lauren. She is long overdue to be on screen. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see…

Colin and Jill should team up to take on Victor. Coli. Would look good running things there, along with Jill. Let them do some serious take over business, but let Colin make us smile. It’s a highlight of the day when Colin smirks and makes you laugh.

Ok last post for a while the good lord has it covered,

I love Tristan Rogers, and Colin is an interesting character, but I feel like he would be much better suited at GH as Robert. GH needs him more right now, especially with Anna rejoining the WSB. And how great would it have been to see Robert and Robin share a scene together during Kimberly McCullough’s recent return?

General Hospital

General Hospital Co-Stars Share Their Grief and Mourn the Loss of Johnny Wactor

There has been an outpouring of grief, sadness and remembrances for former General Hospital actor, Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin 2020-2022), who the world learned was shot and killed on Saturday in a senseless theft and act of gun violence.

As previously reported, Wactor was only 37-years-old. The incident, as told by Wactor’s mother to TMZ, which ultimately took his life, occurred when three individuals attempted to steal the catalytic converter from Johnny’s car. Once alerted to the situation. Wactor did not try to stop or interfere in the theft but the unidentified suspects shot him anyway and then got a way.

Wactor’s talent agent, David Shaul, made this statement on his passing to Variety, “Johnny Wactor was a spectacular human being. Not just a talented actor who was committed to his craft but a real moral example to everyone who knew him. Standing for hard work, tenacity and a never give up attitude. In the highs and lows of a challenging profession he always kept his chin up and kept striving for the best he could be. Our time with Johnny was a privilege we would wish on everyone. He would literally give you the shirt off his back. After over a decade together, he will leave a hole in our hearts forever.”

Many of Johnny’s former GH castmates took to social media in the last several hours with heartbreaking and touching words on the loss of Wactor. Here are just some below, and Michael Fairman TV will continue to update these remembrances as they are posted.

Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) – My heart is so utterly broken… Johnny was the absolute best. So genuine. So caring. Incredibly hard working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy. He always made sure everyone around him felt seen, heard and loved. I admire the man he was so much and I’m a better person for having known him. We shared so many special moments, both on and off screen, and I will forever cherish them deeply in my heart. You will be so incredibly missed Johnny… I’m sure you’re already busy taking care of everyone up there.”

Chad Duell (Michael): “Some POS scum taking the life of someone who’s making something of themselves, and an amazing person. So disgusting and infuriating. Don’t know what else to say.. just so wrong.”

Jon Lindstrom (Kevin): “When the tears slow down, I am literally sick to my stomach at this news. Johnny was one of those rare young men in this business who was kind, unassuming, humble, and always thought about other people. A talented young guy who just wanted to share that talent with the world. I wish I had enough love to fill the hole that his loved ones must feel right now, but I know that’s impossible. Johnny will be missed on this plane. For a long time to come. R.I.P.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis): “An absolutely inconceivable, enraging & senseless tragedy. Johnny was a lovely man. Condolences to his family & friends. May they find eventual peace & may his memory be a blessing.”

Finola Hughes (Anna): “Gutted…. 🕊️ sending my deepest condolences to his family 🤍 I feel I must add to this post. The shock is so terrible, for such a genuine young man to be taken so violently. I am incredibly sad for his family. He was a very hardworking person, kind and extremely respectful to his fellow cast members. I am so sorry for his loss 🤍 Johnny Wactor xxx”

Kirsten Storms (Maxie): “I’m in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don’t typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there. To Johnny’s mother and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Johnny was one of those rare “real individuals” that you almost never come across. I was fortunate enough to have some really good conversations with him where we discussed things I don’t typically open up about. For some reason, we talked about the deep stuff. He was a safe space for those conversations and, in turn, he would talk about his life. He genuinely cared about people and their journeys in life. During his time on GH I witnessed him work hard and truly have respect for every single person in our building. I just cannot believe that his life was stolen from him the way it was. My heart hurts. RIP Johnny”

Bonnie Burroughs (ex-Gladys): “I am heartbroken and sickened by this terrible loss. Johnny I love you. My heart breaks for your real mom and your whole family. The world is darker now.”

Ashton Arbab (ex-Dev): “Absolutely heartbroken while typing this. Johnny Wactor was not only my tv dad for more than 25 episodes on General Hospital but he was a great human, a kind soul, an inspiration and a one of a kind actor. May your soul rest in peace. Heaven gained an Angel.”

Perry Chen (Brad): Johnny Wactor was a beautiful, beautiful soul. So talented. As you can see from the promo clip, always up for anything. Funny as all heck. Fit as all hell but also loved ice cream and ate all the junk I did as well. We all were cheated of many years with him.

Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt):  “Johnny Wactor, you were one of the good ones. I’m so sorry this happened to you. RIP”

Photo: ABC

William deVry (ex-Julian): “Honestly, words can’t begin 2 express the sadness with which 2 convey my feelings towards losing another GH Alum. The senselessness of this lose is beyond description. Johnny was such a good guy. Really horrible. RIP Johnny Wactor & much love & comfort to those who loved him.”

Briana Lane (ex-Brook Lynn): “The world lost a wonderful person yesterday and a true gentleman to everyone he met. I feel lucky to have known him and to have experienced the warmth he exuded so effortlessly. RIP Johnny Wactor”

Lydia Look (Selina): “Johnny, I’m crying and will be for a bit. I knew you were talented when you simply just took your shirt off when the rest of us were trying to outdo each other with our skits. I also knew there & then that you were fine as wine 😻 I also saw how you’d let others take the spotlight whilst confident & loving in your own space. Most of all, I learnt what a magnificent human you were in our long car rides between fan events. I will cherish our chats. Thank you.”

The official General Hospital social media accounts on X and Instagram shared: “The entire General Hospital family is heartbroken to hear of Johnny Wactor’s untimely passing. He was truly one of a kind and a pleasure to work with each and every day. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones during this difficult time.”

General Hospital’s Michael Easton Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Last week over several episodes, General Hospital, handed the ball to one of their longstanding MVP’s Michael Easton (Finn), and he took it all the way in for a touchdown. The backdrop was the lead up to, and then the heartbreaking death of Finn’s father, Gregory Chase (played by Gregory Harrison), and its aftermath.

Through it all, Easton gave every scene its weight, made every scene compelling, and brought us, and we are certain many viewers, to tears throughout it. There is no question come Emmy-time 2025, this is one of the performances that must be remembered, and Michael has the scenes for his reel to back that up.

The set-up was coming off of Finn’s brother, Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding to Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton). Gregory asked the nuptials be a bit fast-tracked to ensure he could be present for it, for he was suffering from the illness for which there is no cure, ALS.  At the wedding reception, Finn slipped and took a sip of a glass of champagne, which began to break his seven years of sobriety.

Once back from the reception, Finn and his dad, have the ultimate father/son talk, knowing they are on borrowed time. Finn and Gregory have also had a very strained relationship at one point; due to both’s involvement with Jackie Templeton. But with all that behind them, and in the present, Gregory was able to tell Finn how proud he was of him, and Finn said the same to his dad. There were tears, we all bawled, and then it was time to get Gregory ready for bed. Due to his symptoms from ALS, Gregory needs help getting undressed. Finn helps out his dad, before telling him goodnight. Gregory flashes back to his life and seemingly falls asleep, but he never wakes up.

The next morning, Finn finds him cold and dead in his bed and sits on the floor at his dad’s bedside and weeps. Overwhelmed and alone, Finn pours himself a drink from the bottle left as a gift by the Cerullos. He has now lost his sobriety, completely. Things get even tougher for Finn when his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love) comes home from school and he has to tell her that her grandfather died. He also had to call his brother, who was about to leave on his honeymoon, and tell him the bad news.

Courtesy/ABC

After having a bit more to drink, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) stops by and they have an argument over his drinking and his unwillingness to let her take Violet with her for the night, which puts a strain in their relationship. Later, when Chase and Brook Lynn show up they can both see that Finn hit the bottle. When Chase finally gets some one-on-one time with his brother, he is able to get through to him.

While mourning the loss of his father, Finn realizes he needs to get cleaned up and get to a meeting. For Finn, as he recounted, having to witness the paramedics taking Gregory’s lifeless body with them was something no son wants to see and was more they could bear.

It was all heart-wrenching, beat by beat. Easton gave us all the layers and complexities and took us inside what Finn was feeling and how he was trying to cope with this terrible loss and tragedy. For all of these reasons, and those cited above, Michael Fairman TV names Michael Easton’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, do you agree with our pick of Michael Easton for his work on GH for ‘Power Performance’ honors? And what moment from the episodes discussed above really brought you to tears the most? Comment below.
