Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) who recently wrapped up the film, The New Wife is getting ready to shoot another.  Now comes word that the actor will star in the indie feature film project, Pretty Broken.  In it, Tyler will portray Jerry Carlyle, a former kids cable access TV show star, now a self-proclaimed role model for his used car sales team, who uses his southern charm and one-liners to win over the ladies.

The film is directed by Brett Eichenberger, from an award winning script penned by Jill Remensynder and is produced by Leonian Pictures and Resonance Productions.

The story follows Lindsey Lou (Jillian Clare), an unemployed, college drop-out on the verge of divorce who finds herself couch surfing at her childhood home while her family grieves the death of her father. As the family tries to put the past behind them, Lindsey fights to keep his memory alive before her mother (Paula Trickey) replaces him with a younger man (Christopher). The film which is 2/3 of the way done is going back into production on September 8th in Portland, Oregon.

AS GH fans know, Tyler has been gone from General Hospital since May of this year.  His likeness was removed from the opening credits of GH this week as well as mentions in the the closing credits.  In story, Nikolas  then played by Nick Stabile) was shot and fell to his “death” on Cassadine Island.  But fans are hoping for an upcoming return of Christopher to reprise the role he originated. 

So, what do you think of Tyler’s new film gig?  Comment below!

When Nik does come back? I hope he and Miss Lizzie pay for their crimes.
Why is Elizabeth the victim?

How sweet! Sorry, you have do much venom for someone you do not know. It must be so hard for you to carry all this rage around; seeing red over a fictional character. You do realize Liz is not real, right?
But, if I were any thinner, I’d disappear. I love Elizabeth. Everyone on these sites knows that. Plus, I also love the actress who plays Liz.
Oh, I am a vegetarian. Well, except for salmon….I loooove salmon, and sushi. No meat!!

Well, what can I say, Jay? We must take some things in stride, especially from someone who means nothing in our lives.
I feel sorry for this person.
But, I admire the moderators for removing that comment. I am sure it was a slip, and not meant to be posted.

Thank you, Celia! My mom also watches and always feels sorry for the ‘eternal victim’ Miss Elizabeth.. but anytime she does something underhanded, I always say, “That’s the Elizabeth I KNOW!” The stunt she pulled with Jake Doe/Jason was the last straw for me.

Celia
Guest
Celia

That was my point exactly, Soaphound. And, Liz got away with it. Why?
Will the truth about her keeping Nik’s secret ever come out? This secret ‘ghost’ will end up in the cavernous catacombs with the rest of the Cassadine ‘bones’.
I wonder if Liz will think twice about ‘socking’ it to Hayden when she discovers they’re sisters; OR will this truth make her despise Hayden even more!!??

Yeah, she does, Rebecca. But, it’s the first thing she noticed when she ‘walked into the party’. Oh, that Carly!! LOL. There’s a drink; and then, there’s a succession of drinks.

HaHa….It’s a catch 22, Timmmy. Is Alexis turning to alcohol to STOP imagining seeing Julian, or is she hallucinating BECAUSE of the alcohol? What a plight!! Wow!!!! I did not expect for TPTB to do this to Alexis. I hope her daughters are there to pick her up when she falls. However, Timmmy ( and you may or may not perceive this, as a man….but, I hope you are THAT sensitive to a woman’s feelings), I do not like the direction Alexis is taking.

Dear, dear, oh dear…CeeCee. LOL. First, just imagine me being pissed at the “sext up mid life” to “middle-aged drunk” comment! Yes…I know that wasn’t you who said that. But still, once again these references to age on EVERY freaking topic is beyond annoying. I could care less if Alexis or Alex, Barbara or Bob, Sally or Sal…had SEX at any age or started drinking at any age or had a breakdown at any age…because the AGE isn’t what matters. It’s the human experience…the joys…that would be sex…and the sorrows…that would be when the person you love and are having… Read more »

Hey, Rebecca, You’re right, it’s the character being discussed. We do not really want to go backwards, do we? I love Michelle/Nine to no end. Now, she has been hanged from the mightiest oak, pushed, shoved, disgraced, defamed and called a sl*t by different posters, making me reel with annoyance. I answer in a ‘jovial’ manner, always keeping in mind that it IS, indeed, A SOAP. In my Timmmy’s defense….he’s a kidder and soooo very lovable. If I knew him, personally; I’d want to be his friend….as so many others on these boards, as I have indicated to Claudio. There… Read more »

Oh, I forgot, LOL. RE: Franco. Something about him is gnawing at me. I don’t know why. I think you know how I feel about Roger. Love him to pieces. But, I see a change in him. My imagination? Maybe. I think his mother’s influence will be his undoing. As far as Elizabeth, whom I also love , needs to come clean, in order to cleanse herself and not start a relationship with a very dubious character, such as Franco. Yes, he’s enormously caring. When he loves, he loves all the way—-no in-between. Admirable. But, if these two are starting… Read more »

Excellent post, Bec. My favorite line is,” …”without conflict, there would be no story.”
I could see Alexis developing a drinking problem after what she has endured. This happens.
And it’s never too late to become an alcoholic–some are born and some are made. So if they address the issue of alcoholism reasonably and realistically, I am all for it. This is a life destroying disease which afflicts many people.

Ceecee…you and I are not going backwards…however…because you find a poster “lovable” doesn’t mean I do. Matter of fact, I don’t. For the very reason you have taken to this person is the very reason I haven’t. He has antagonized many a time when not one comment was directed at him ant took sides as you know. He’s been your cheerleader. Thus, your online friendship and loyalty. I know you well enough and witnessed your reactions to people who haven’t been a fan of yours; you’re rightly angered.

Hi Harry…can I call you Har just without the ry? Hahah..ahem. Thanks for your response to my post. As I said to CeeCee, I’m not sure if Alexis will have a drinking problem but she seems to be spiraling. Sigh…she’s paid a mighty price when Carly, Ava, Sonny, Julian, Olivia, Sam, Liz, Jadon…need I go on? All these characters are either criminals or in love with criminals yet Alexis???? Alexis FINALLY gets a personal life again and she’s the one out of all them that takes the hit? Something’s rotten in Denmark! …..

Hi, Rebecca. ( I am out the door, but, it is uppermost in my head to say this)….. Firstly, I agree with every, wise word you have said. I will take your well-phrased; well-rounded comment as a lesson learned. I think you have witnessed my ‘growing up’ as it were, in these couple of years. And, I do respect your opinions, believe it or not. I do think that Harry is right. We are mire slike than we think. Yes, I am RCatholic, with a caravan of priests and nuns in the family.

Hi CeeCee, yes I agree about our being “more alike.” And yes, as you mention I definitely notice your “growing up” or let’s say being more open to seeing beyond your experience…you’re listening to my messages, hearing them and considering them. I’m glad you do now. We’ve both gotten past that “time” which lasted way too long in our MF roller coaster “relationship” and I think we both deserve credit for our new one. Yes, friends. 🙂

Happy Labor Day! And speaking of labor, you asked me if I am sensitive to women’s feelings? There is No human I respect more than a women who becomes a mother! Women are the driving force behind the success of ANY family! Dad’s are relevant but to have a strong women back a family, from birth on, a child should NEVER forget what a women did to become a mother!

I agree, Sandy. Maura Wells and Nick Stabile worked….but, I can’t say the same about Tyler and Maura.
I can see Nik and Liz. I am having some doubts about Franco and Liz, now. I feel that little evil imp raising its ugly head within Franco.

Really CeeCee. How so? Franco’s devoted to Liz. He’s still quirky but he when it comes to people he loves…Nina, Kiki, Carly (when they were engaged), Scotty, Liz and her boys…he has a heart of gold.

@Timmm. Well, Timmmy. I do not want Roger to go. Franco just needs to steer clear of Heather, that’s all. Ironically, I love Heather, as well. She slays me. Her twisted way of thinking is infectious. I am starting to see things her way…LOL. ( Nah). I don’t like the way Franco is insinuating himself in Liz’s life and has this unreasonable dislike for Hayden. I did say that Liz would blame Hayden for her tumble down the stairs, before we saw Hayden on the landing. Now, what’s puzzling to me is the fact that Liz doesn’t seem to have… Read more »

I have a feeling Tyler is not coming back to GH, if this is true bring back Nick Stabile.

Celia

Now, you’re talking, Ricardo. However, I want a different kind of Nik. The one I met two and a half years ago, when I started watching the show.
That role fits Nick Stabile like a glove. In that case, as I said, Nik and Ava should connect.
But, there’s always the chance he will hook up with Liz. We shall see what TPTB have in mind for both Nik and Liz. Nik is a criminal; and, Franco an ex-criminal who is starting to show signs of instability.
At this point in her life, Liz deserves better.

What i would really like to know is what the hell happened between him and the show? He had just won an Emmy that would have gotten him more story for him to carry. Something serious had to have gone down for him to break like this. Sure sucks to not see him or the character.

Good Luck to Tyler. Always liked Nick until this group of idiots turned him bad. That was not Nick.I have shut the show off so best to Tyler, I hope he gets lots of work. GH has returned to the Sonny show, that turns my stomach. I will NEVER watch Scott, Monica , and now every other character kiss sonnys arse and spout how he loves his children ?

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
