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 🙂

Erin exited GH in early 2019, when she joined the cast of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists on Freeform in which she currently plays the role of Taylor Hotchkiss.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
