Tristan Rogers Teases His Return To General Hospital!

Courtesy/ABC

Great news for longtime General Hospital fans, Robert Scorpio is on the way and will be on the canvas in Port Charles soon!  His portrayer, Tristan Rogers teased his return to his popular role on the ABC daytime drama series tweeting:  “Alert: Robert Scorpio sighted in Port Charles.”

Now ABC Soaps In Depth also reports that Rogers will be back for a short story arc.  Tristan explained while he doesn’t want to say too much, he can reveal that: “There are three distinct stories I seem to be involved in. And that’s okay because that’s the way the character always was.”

Just because Rogers is doing a short GH stint, does not mean he won’t also be appearing on his role as Colin Atkinson on The Young and the Restless.   Depending on the timing of the airing episodes, Rogers just might be on two major network soaps at the same time.

So, excited to hear that Tristan is back to GH for a bit?  Will Scorpio be on the case and help resolve some of the major mysteries engulfing Port Charles right now? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

yes, I crazy excited about it. Finally, some soap news I’m actually really happy about.

Yes, yes, great news to me also–anytime when Scorpio is in the mix is a good time–that twinkle in the eye and the sarcastic barb is always welcoming. Come home, Tristan and Scorpio!

I think it has something to do with Laura???

Wouldn’t that be nice? Genie and Tristan had great chemistry when Scorpio “romanced” Laura on a date–and Luke got jealous!
And Genie can match Tristan with the improv/barbs!

Wanted to say also that I loved what Genie made of her scene with Jane today. Genie seems to be at peace with the debacle that Tony Geary made of the Luke and Laura iconic love story. She looked lovely and serene in the scene. She grounds GH and gives it a sensibility sorely needed. I look forward to her romantic story line with Jon Lindstom as Laura and Kevin find their way together.

Love Tristan coming back. But he belongs to Anna…”it’s always been Anna.” Love Genie with Kevin. They could have a great double date. But first let’s solve Laura/Helena will and the Cassadine/Nik mysteries together.

Nancy, that was when Robert Scorpio mysteriously erupted out of the fog on the docks wearing his London Fog.
Really, even back then I wanted Laura to forget the hysterical blond Afro and go on a plane with Robert leaving Luke alone with his ego.

It would be nice if he could share a scene or two with Laura for old times sake. I was hoping it would happen when he was on set last time, but it didn’t. Remember when Mack told Robert: “Did you know Laura was back in town?” I was hoping it was a tease that Robert and Laura would run into each other at the Metro Court or something. Didn’t happen. Sigh.

I wish he would come home for good. The temporary stints leave me deeply unsatisfied. I hate the Colin character on Y&R, but love Robert Scorpio, the super WSB Spymaster! Tristan come home!

I like him much better as Robert than I do as Colin.
Look forward to the storylines he will be involved in.

I thought Tristan was on contract at Y&R—doesn’t matter because I’ll take Robert Scorpio any way I can even if he is just on loan from Y&R. I like him as Colin but Scorpio will always be the guy I remember him for the most. I miss his adventures with Luke and Laura.

Nope recurring. Love both characters so as long as he is recurring on both, I can watch him on both. Win, win.

LOVE Robert Scorpio! So many of the legacy characters have great comedic skills (Kin Shriner, Lynn Herring, Jane Elliot, etc.) and they make the show enjoyable to watch (again)!

It’s because, back then, it was clear they were having fun together and were friends. Viewers can always sense it and it is so much fun to go along for the ride. And Gloria Monty welcomed and encouraged ad libbing. I think, out of respect, the veterans are still allowed to ad lib but the younger actors are expected to stay on script at all times. If what Tony Geary said in one of his interviews is true, the scripts today tell the actors when they are supposed to begin crying and when they are supposed to laugh, etc. He… Read more »

dmr: Your statement reminds me of something I was complaining to my husband about the other day. Soaps used to have A LOT of comedy in them back in the day, and it was great. Watching DOOL in 2016 feels like a descent into madness sometimes. Thank goodness GH has some comedy with Franco and Dr. Finn, respectively. Ava and Scottie make me laugh when they share scenes. Diane makes me laugh. I’m grateful there is some humor. I would love some more. Maybe viewership would go up if there were more laughs. There is never a shortage of tears… Read more »

And since DROOL doesn’t know what to do with Wally K, can we get another Quartermain for Momma Tracy?

I knew it would happen and I heard it would be in October? Glad to hear, they waste him over at Y&R and he is rarely on! Sign him to a full time contract ABC! I hope he either is involved in the Valentin story or the Hornsby story. Either way, Robert and Anna live happily ever after! PLEASE!

Yes, sign him pronto–and do let Robert and Anna have a story–and live happily ever after, of course. 🙂

Oh, su0000, I always enjoy your comments and you often make me laugh, but there was some great stuff between Jill and Colin at Y&R. Jean & Shelly gave us some great stuff, Mariah, Sage, Ian Ward and the very clever way they redeemed Sharon by having her ECT wipe her memory of changing Summer’s DNA results and Phyllis on the staircase. We really don’t know what happened during their time at Y&R and it’s possible the story pace and lack of follow through on stories during their time there was the Executive Producer’s influence or the network’s doing.

GH needs Tristan Rogers much more than Y&R does right now. Robert Scorpio is a staple character on the show, and they should consider putting him back on contract and pairing him with Anna when she returns. I’m not feeling Anna/Andre at all.

ill take Robert Scorpio any day back on GH. Collin on YR is boring and always causing trouble.Unlike Robert Scorpio who is exiting and always takes care of everything.

Weve all watch RobertScorpio team up with Luke and Laura,Holly Sutton,Anna Devane,and several countless stars on GH. When a character like Robert has as many years countless story lines. You never get board when Robert or Anna,Or Luke team up. Its one adventure after the other.Please bring him back full time Anna and Laura need him.

Does anyone have any idea what number FV is aiming for as far as cast expansion? I think he’s aiming for the thousands, lol!!!!
Seriously anyone have an educated, or otherwise guess as to why he keeps making the cast so large? I’m a Scorpio fan so that’s great, but why is the cast so big????? Anyone?

nancy dillingham
Guest
nancy dillingham

I believe that he thinks he is “pacifying” the longstanding, loyal fans by “dropping in” a character they love all the while going stubbornly forward with his own selfish agenda–to cast his “pets” and “favorites” and “slyly” (NOT!) cram them down our throats! You think???? 🙂 He and Tony Geary seem to have one thing in common: they don’t care about the fans at all. Ego for sale, anyone?

Rebecca1
Guest

Sorry but I think that’s a ridiculous statement. GH is a business. Frank’s not running community theatre. Whatever his reasons are and no matter how many individuals are annoyed, IF the goal is to keep the show going than he’s casting the way he believes will do so. If there!s some corporate plan to sabatage the show and justify it with low ratings than that’s the deal. I would think Frank wants GH to be a success; it’s the genre he knows and I doubt, unless ABC’s offered him a sweet deal when GH kicks the bucket, that he’d purposely… Read more »

This is great news! Tristan as Scorpio really adds that certain something to the GH canvas that is greatly needed. Too bad it is only a short story arc but maybe impactful enough to get TPTB into gear and making it more permanent. I would love to see him interact with Laura and of course Anna. And…I really hope the stories are strongly character driven. Too tall an order?

I wonder if Robert’s return has anything to do with the Luke new storyline. Maybe Luke is in Greece with Robert, tracking Valentin.
Wouldn’t it just be rich, if Robert and Luke saved Nik?

CeeCee…Back in the day Scorpio and Luke were practically best friends and had a lot of adventures together. So perhaps Anthony Geary is stepping out of retirement again??? Great GH days! I’m still a Luke fan (even with the Fluke fiasco…there were pieces of that story that were great soapy fun and Anthony Geary was phenomenal in his dual role…but I digress). Love Scorpio and am thrilled he’s back. Hoping he actually he gets to act, lol. His last visit they cast him as wallpaper..just hung at the back of the room at his daughter’s wedding and barely said a… Read more »

One of my favorite actors on G.H. The show always the best when he is on.
Saw him on very first show and followed all stories too. The show was it’s
best then! Ratings where high.
Welcome back! Wish he could stay longer.

I love Robert Scorpio. So glad he’s making an appearance. GH should give him a contract because Y&R does not use him. He’s only on once in a blue moon. And as much as Anna loved Duke, I always wanted her back with Robert. They are one of my favorite couples. And Tristin is much more interesting as Robert than he is as Colin.

He isn’t on contract with either show. He’s on recurring status with both shows, which is how he’s able to appear on Y&R and GH. If he was on contract with one show, he could not appear on the other. Same goes for Wally Kurth on DOOL and GH.

Maybe the skeleton was Ethan. Not surprising for a son to have a few pieces of Dad’s jewelry if that is the correct word for the stuff Luke wore. And if so, maybe the reason the DNA didn’t match is because he is really Robert’s son.

I cannot wait for Robert’s return. I just hope Holly is with him. They are the epitome of class, romance, and they sizzle. Robert and Anna only were together for Robin, and because Duke and Holly were supposedly dead. All Robert and Anna did was argue. Please let Robert and Holly have their HEA! This is what both actors want!

You cannot just bring someone back. Holly needs a purpose and that wouldnt entail a long stay for Tristan and it is only a drop by. Maybe next time?

Always nice to see Tristan back but since I’m sure it is only for a few episodes, it’s hard to get real into whatever story he’ll be involved in. GH should dump 20 characters and hite him bk permanently.

I would really like to know when Mayor Lomax is going to be found out about and the fact that the ballot box was tampered with so that Felicia can become Mayor and get a star role again and Robert Scorpio helping in making that happen.

They use to show kids playing at the house while the grown ups were having conversations. Monica has been on the show the longest, when are they… Read more »

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
