Video Interviews: Kathleen Gati, Gordon Thomson & Michael Caruso Preview WINTERTHORNE!

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Carly Admits To Sonny She Was Falling Back In Love with Jason

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, Carly (Laura Wright) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) finally had the “talk”.  You know, the one about what Sonny really walked in on the night he “returned from the dead” on Carly and Jason’s (Steve Burton) wedding night?  Yeah, that one.

Sonny has already had a conversation with Jason, where Jason admitted he was starting to fall again for Carly, even though they were originally getting married to show a united front for the five families.

Now coming to confront Carly, Sonny is at first greeted by her with “Mike’s” cowboy hat, where she says the man he was in Nixon Falls is a mystery to her. Sonny tells her he spoke with Jason and so Carly is compelled to admit that she and Jason would have slept together on their wedding night, if Sonny hadn’t shown up alive and in the bedroom!

Sonny’s clearly upset about his best friend and his wife getting so close and rekindling their old feelings. Carly tells Sonny that, at first, Jason and she were just going through with the wedding for show, but later, they decided to make it a real marriage, and were falling in love.

When Sonny poses the question to Carly, if she has any residual feelings for Jason, she says they have gone back to being best friends, and how much she loves Sonny.  Carly points out that Nina (Cynthia Watros) did this to them – she kept them apart for nine months – and so much has happened that it’s been difficult for them to be together as it was in the past because of it.

In the end, despite what Nina had perpetrated on them, Carly and Sonny come to an agreement that they need to rebuild their relationship.  But the cowboy hat looms as we fade to black.

Clearly, the Jason and Carly relationship and almost consummating it on their wedding night, is not sitting well with Sonny; plus Sonny seems to continue to not really tear into Nina for her deception as much as someone would if he didn’t also have feelings for her.

So, what do you hope happens next? Do you want Sonny and Carly to work things out? Do you hope Sonny sleeps with Nina? If he does, and Jason goes back to Britt (now that they are going on another adventure together to locate Liesl) is Carly ultimately the odd woman out?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
