The highly-anticipated online series Winterthorne is set to have its debut tomorrow (Aug 27th).  On-Air On-Soaps caught up with cast members: Kathleen Gati (Liesl, General Hospital), Gordon Thomson (Ex-Dynasty, Santa Barbara), and Winterthorne creator and actor, Michael Caruso for some quick red carpet interviews at the Winterthorne premiere held just over a week ago.

After attending the exclusive screening what we can tell you is – that if you are a fan of Kathleen Gati’s work on General Hospital – you must see her in this tour de force performance in Winterthorne! After the screening, those in attendance and her fellow cast members were a-buzz about her portrayal.  You will see how Gati figures into the equation as the story of Winterthorne begins to unravel.

On the red carpet, Kathleen did share this about her role: “I play Valentina Winterthorne, the aunt of Miranda.  It was a lovely project and I enjoyed working on it, and I am very excited to see the end result.  I worked a lot with Martha Madison (Miranda), and she is incredible and lovely to work with.”

Those expecting Gordon Thomson to play some backstabbing manipulative black sheep character, which has been a staple throughout his soap career, may be somewhat surprised by the role he plays in Winterthorne. Thomson revealed: “I play Max Winterthorne, and he does one bad thing for a very good reason in the show.  It’s actually a brilliant piece of plotting.  He’s actually very kind and a good man.”

Michael Caruso, who created Winterthorne and has a key role in the series, discussed with us how the entire project came to be: “I met Martha Madison at the Daytime Emmys two years ago and I thought she was absolutely incredible.  There was something about her that stuck with me.  I had kind of been thinking about this show for awhile and so my wife and I had a lunch meeting with Martha.  I pitched the idea to her.  Martha loved it, and so the rest is history, and we went from there.  Winterthorne is about a bunch of powerful women that happen to run a candy business, and it’s a little more complicated than that!

As to what Caruso hopes the audience will take away from the much-hyped series: “It’s not like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – it’s candy, but it’s really a female family-driven drama.  The show is a fantasy that I want people to just enjoy.   Don’t try to make sense of it.  Try to give yourself over to the characters.  Just follow this crazy family on their journey, and just enjoy all of the candy, all of the crazy, and all of the characters.  Just sit back, relax, and enjoy a little Winterthorne.”

After the jump check out our video chats with Kathleen, Gordon & Michael.  Will you be checking out Winterthorne ? Let us know!

Great advice from the creator Michael Caruso- The show is a fantasy that I want people to just enjoy. Don’t try to make sense of it. Try to give yourself over to the characters. Just follow this crazy family on their journey, and just enjoy all of the candy, all of the crazy, and all of the characters. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy —– .” That ^^^^^^ is how daytime soap watchers should watch the ”fantasy” and relax and enjoy the journey/stories.. As I always say (I’m with Michael) Don’t try to make sense of it. ”’ … lol… Read more »

I didn’t think that Gordon Thompson was acting any longer. I though he had retired.

GH’s Carolyn Hennesy Addresses Why She Was Not a Part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s ‘Alexis-Centric’ 25th Anniversary Episode

For the past several weeks, savvy General Hospital fans were wondering why on earth was Alexis’ best friend, Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy), was not a part of Nancy Lee Grahn’s (Alexis) 25th anniversary episode of the ABC daytime drama series, which centered around Alexis saying goodbye to those near and dear before she goes to Pentonville to serve a prison sentence.

After all, Diane and Alexis have been through so much together, that it seemed like a glaring omission. Was Hennesy not asked back for the episode?  The answer came in the form of Hennesy herself via in a response to a fan’s tweet on her being MIA from the episode.

As it turns out, the ever-busy Hennesy was shooting a film in Atlanta and was not available at the time of the tape date of Grahn’s special episode.

 

Carolyn tweeted: “Not their fault, my dear. I was off filming on Atlanta!!! Cuz you know Diane wouldn’t have missed it!”  That came in response to this: “Watched the big @NancyLeeGrahn ep of #GH and I’m perplexed that there was no Diane! @carolynhennesy One of the most fun TV female friendships and she wasn’t there to send her off? Come on you guys @GeneralHospital”

Mystery solved! Carolyn would have gladly been at the GH set that day in a heartbeat, if she could have.

So, happy to know that GH did not forget about Diane for the Alexis-Centric episode, but had to work around it? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

General Hospital Stars Participate in GLSEN’s ‘Day of Silence’, Asking You To Do The Same

General Hospital’s Sofia Mattsson, Cynthia Watros, Kathleen Gati, Brook Kerr and Johnny Wactor appear in a video released this morning, where the actors look to camera and remain silent.

It’s all a part of the ongoing initiative from GLSEN and their “Day of Silence” campaign which is  a national student-led demonstration where LGBTQ students and allies all around the country—and the world—take a vow of silence to protest the harmful effects of harassment and discrimination of LGBTQ people in schools.  Every April, students go through the school day without speaking, ending the day with Breaking the Silence rallies and events to share their experiences during the protest and bring attention to ways their schools and communities can become more inclusive.

This year the day is this coming Friday April 23rd.  General Hospital is showing their support of LGBTQ+students and their right to be safe at school and free of verbal harassment, as well.  The video released today supports the organizations action.

 

Now they ask you to support it as well and make your own, ‘Day of Silence’ video and share it on social media.  Watch General Hospital’s below.

Then let us know, if you stand with GH and their support of GLSEN’s Day of Silence via the comment section.

Kimberly McCullough Gives Clues That Have GH Fans Suspecting She Was Back for John Reilly’s Tribute Episode: “Saw Some Old Friends and Reminisced about an Absent Dear One…”

General Hospital fans began taking note of a couple of tweets sent out by beloved longtime cast member, Kimberly McCullough (Robin Scorpio), over the last 24 hours on the actress-director’s Twitter feed.

First, Kimberly shared: “I did something really cool today that involved wearing make-up and heels all day, which I clearly wasn’t prepared for.”

After that she followed it up with, “Here’s a clue – saw some old friends and reminisced about a dear absent one ….”

If you combine that with the fact that Jackie Zeman also tweeted: “Good day shooting @GeneralHospital I was invited back for a special episode today. As Y’all know I rarely post a selfie but it’s been awhile since I’ve had ‘Bobbie’ hair and makeup done. Thank you Karen, Carl, and Ari. Have a wonderful weekend, Everyone,” it would appear that both McCullough and Zeman were back for the upcoming tribute episode to the late John Reilly, who for many years played Sean Donely.

In story, Robin’s parents, Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Anna (Finola Hughes) were very close with Sean, as well.  So it all makes sense that Robin would be part of this as well.

So, if this is proven to be true, are you excited to see Kimberly back on a special episode of GH?  Comment below.
