Happy for you.”

IT’S a FEAST for the eyes and senses’. Tyler Christopher is on daytime for that specific reason… PLUS he’s a solid actor you have no idea how much fun it was to see him win best lead actor over , so glad you retired, Tony Geary’ Luke. PLUS his time @DAYS of our Lives NETTED him another BEST LEAD ACTOR nomination. that’s no small feat… especially when it’s on two shows…. I have always loved sharing how much Tyler is daytime answer to Kevin Costner… just so dreamy , fills the romance department.. and ooh la la the masculinity just… Read more »

Well, I never understood what all the fuss was about Kevin Costner either. I just don’t care for the strong, silent types.

I’m all for giving people a second chance and more importantly, he’s a much better actor than the human mannequin that’s playing Nicholas now, so he should make a future for himself instead of throwing his life away.

I wish him all the best! However, the new Nicolas has really grown on me and I think he has great chemistry with Ava.

Patrick
Guest

the difference between the New Nicholas and Ava.. is so vast… it’s insurmountable…. she looks closer to being his grandmother. @GH is even trying to make Avery with Ava APPEAR like THAT CLOSE KNIT, familial? forget about the “blackmail” the sexuality between these two was what drove these two. to chastity themselves ? oy

Ava: hold ALL your martinis “girl” this twosome is doomed… this picture show isn’t drawing any one in

New Nicholas and Ava are Hot!!
luv the couple..
Ava doesn’t look closer to being Nikolas’s grandmother..
Now- Anna looks like Finn’s grandmother, for sure..
I hope Ava will get her dark side back, she was exciting!
hey! Franco and Ava both should go dark together- awesome!

Lin

Findlay Hughes looks fantastic, and NOT like Finn’s grandmother! She’s beautiful and still has that willowy dancer’s body she had in Stayin Alive 38 years ago.

Hey, Patrick. How are you? First…the actor playing Nic (Marcos Coloma) is younger than Maura West but not by much; they’re both in their 40s in real life. And, just like real life, one might look older than the other…but, so what? I think they are HOT together and I’ve been hoping from almost day one that GH doesn’t mess with them and have him going back to Liz. We shall see…

I like the new one he fits the part now. He looks to young for Ava. I like the the other one but don’t he would fit with Ava as this one. He’s more for Elizabeth

Rebecca1

Agree, Davy! I absolutely adore the Nu Nic and I think he and Ava are incredible together! Amazing chemistry! Would hate them to lose Marcus Coloma (Nicolas).

I would like him back as Nik on GH! Or switch with Brandon Barish. I’m torn love Tyler as Nik the most! He was also good as Stefan. Brandon Barish is good as both Stefan and Johnny Zacara.

If Tyler has gotten sober and cleaned up his act, I would love to see him back on General Hospital. I was so disappointed when he didn’t return as Nikolas, although I obviously certainly understood once news of his personal issues came out. I do think Marcus Coloma has gotten better in the role than when he first started, but Tyler is the only true Nikolas Cassadine. However, with GH’s recent budget cuts and trimming of the cast, I’m not sure that would be a good fit at the moment.

Remy

Nicholas Cassadine us PLEASE!

No Pun intended to Marcus, but we all know Tyler is REAL Cassadine!

Maura West never really got her opportunity to make the Ava/Nicholas storyline work with the original Nicholas

Every Nicholas Maura has been paired with has been with a recast of Nicholas.

Phil

I’m not really a fan of his. I have preferred his recasts on both Days (Brandon Barash) and GH (Marcus Colama). Hopefully he will join Y&R or B&B if he joins a soap again. I don’t watch either.

Charday

Wouldn’t it be awesome to see him back as Nikolas, and with Britt again? I admit that I like the new actor playing Nikolas, too. Wonder if Tyler still has his grey pants and burgundy shirt he used to wear constantly as Nikolas?

Rodd
Guest

I really liked him on GH and DAYS but also really like the actors who replaced him on those shows. So happy that he’s gotten himself together and wish him every happiness and success as he moves forward. That being said, I wouldn’t want to see the actors currently playing Nikolas or Jake (Stephan) be given the boot so he could return to one of those roles. Hope he finds something fresh for his fresh start.

I am wishing him nothing but the best in his return; I know he has battled his demons, and I am hoping he is on the right track right now, especially after a near-death experience. Perhaps a surprise return as Stefan on Days of Our Lives, or a brand-new character, again?

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

Tyler Christopher PROVED he could be a new character.. albeit a DiMera on @DAYS of OUR Lives… he stepped up to the plate… despite his “flaws” which is an addiction beyond.. yet he reigned them in, yes peeps with an emmy nomination in best lead actor.

his capabilities, his contribution, his wherewithal… do carry his REEL. he’s a proven co worker. he’s a proven attribute

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
