Thanks for the wonderful interview with Hillary B Smith. So enjoyed her on OLTL over the years !! Had the pleasure of seeing her in NYC play last fall. Fumbling Thru the Pieces is a funny webseries & I’m enjoying seeing HBS in this role.

What a pleasant interview, Michael. Have always loved Hillary. She is so natural. Just like Bob Woods. They were a perfect match on OLTL which I sorely miss. I am glad she is happy and continuing the work that she loves and does so well.

What a wonderful interview…thanks Michael. It’s great seeing Hillary and I am happy to know that she is doing well and enjoying herself! I love Venice and am anxiously awaiting the next season and I still need to catch up on Fumbling. I do miss seeing Bob and Hillary together on screen as Bo and Nora. They truly are the best soap couple! I heard that Bob is going to be on The Grove…..Hillary producing…perhaps she will show up as a character that is involved with him!!

Great interview. HBS is awesome and right – we fans just love to be able to see her in any role. she can play them all if give the chance. FTTP second season was truly worth the wait! HBS did an great job in Any Given Monday! Miss her as Nora, but look forward to seeing her in other roles as well. B&B should consider expanding her character! Guya is a very interesting, deep character! Keep doing what you do! and thanks for being so AWESOME and CARING to us FANS! Best to you always! Take Care HBS!! Thank you… Read more »

I saw on amazon.com yesterday a Vhs tape about OLTL. It’s some of the popular weddings from OLTL soap & its about 45minutes………………It cost $2 & change but there are only 3 left..I would like it better if it were on dvd instead ..Vhs tape doesn’t last as long as a dvd…..Maybe they will put it on dvd sometime…

PLEASE ask her if my all time favorite sitcom SOMETHING WILDER going to be on DVD or be available on the internet like youtube or Hulu. (Or send me a copy:) I have a few episodes on tape and would love to have all of them including the three which never aired.

When you live in Stockbridge and Alice Cooper is your neighbor life can’t get any better. 😉

General Hospital

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
