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

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!

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 truly think Ava has run its course… gallery schmallia…w/no Kiki, Julian gone… @gh has no cajones to write for Ava and Kevin ! this is the money maker… and/or … the fire, tantalize with Tyler Christopher with Maura West is what blew this all up. bringing back Tyler to dance with Britta, Ava, Liz ??? what fire… let this rage

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

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

The Daytime Emmy Awards have recognized outstanding achievement in daytime television programming since 1974.  The awards are presented to programs broadcast between 2:00 AM and 6:00PM, as well as all forms of children’s television programming and certain categories of streaming and syndicated content.

NATAS also revealed today that this year’s Daytime Emmys are the most competitive ever, with more than 3,100 submissions featuring content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

The 48th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be produced by NATAS and Associated Television International (ATI), which produced Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies on The CW in 2009 and on CBS in 2010, 2011 and 2020. Adam Sharp and Steve Ulrich are executive producers from NATAS, while David McKenzie is executive producer and director from ATI.

So excited about the Daytime Emmys will return to network TV for two more years guaranteed, and that we have a date for this year’s presentation this summer? Comment below.
