      “General Hospital” needs more new characters.

      I am wondering the same thing because I do not understand why this is big news; granted I loved her on Being Erica I am little confuse as to how the bosses at G.H. decides what is consider big news.

      Thats what i asked under the ratings topic…T.J.’s mom would make sense!!!

    • su0000

      March 14, 2014 at 6:53 pm

      yes, very pretty..
      I’m with you thinking it’s TJ’s mom and a big change on the way for Shawn , it would seem..
      I like new characters they bring mystery and a new story and always play off the stars, so all have new stories and renewed screen time..

    I really like Sean and think he has much more depth as an actor than Jason did as Sonny’s henchman.

    There are too many characters on gh they need to trim that cast not add new ones

      A deadly virus will be released from the hospital, killing half the cast.

      • jimh(leave it to beaver)

        March 16, 2014 at 12:17 pm

        If they killed half the cast they’d just ask Super hero Doc…Robin Drake…to revive them…lol


    March 14, 2014 at 6:40 pm

    She is a pretty lady, I hope she stays long term on Gh.

  5. Beth

    March 14, 2014 at 6:41 pm

    And the big story will end up being that Shaun is the father, Old story told again and again. But must agree with aria,,,,,she is beautiful.

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 15, 2014 at 6:25 am

      Back on Dec.23 (?) i commented on how i thought Suan would turn out to be T.Js father…i thought T.J.was the one who would be shot during the warehouse shooting…and then it would be revealed Shaun was his father…also once thought he was the father of Felix as well but i doubt the Felix part will happen!!!

    hmmm I must have missed her… I don’t remember her and I watched the show today..

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 15, 2014 at 6:29 am

      She appeared near the end of the show at Kellys where Shaun works and he asked her ‘what she was doing there’ and thats all they really showed of her!!!

        Thanks for the update.. must have dvr’d thru that ..

    Im not familiar with the actress but I agree she is beautiful. I hope this means some fresh story lines because some of the writing lately should have been rethought. Im really conflicted about my feelings on GH lately part of it is going good and the rest is a joke. So Im glad to see a different role for shawn than who can I kill its getting out of control and he’s to good of an actor. They definitely would make a sexy couple.

  9. Jules

    March 14, 2014 at 8:51 pm

    How are fans of GH keeping up with all these characters? My goodness, every day a new cast member.

    If I was a fan, I’d be furious and fed up. But I’m just a fed up ex-fan.

    • clh

      March 15, 2014 at 4:39 am

      This fan loves it! Don’t want to see the same people day after day, it becomes boring, predictable, and monotonous. Love the many surprises. If I wanted boring I’d go back to Y&R under the JFP regime.

  10. BTripp

    March 14, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    She’s gotta be TJ’s mom. I hope Sean turns out to be his real dad too.

    • su0000

      March 14, 2014 at 10:28 pm

      Vinessa might be Sean’s sister ..

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 15, 2014 at 6:33 am

      Thats what i said too…and back in Dec. during the warehouse shooting i said something about Suan turning out to be T.J.s dad!!!

  11. boes

    March 15, 2014 at 6:26 am

    Maybe she’s Shawn’s brain, which has been missing a long, long time.
    If she’s TJ’s mom, hopefully she’s in PC just to take that kid away. And if she takes Shawn with her, then that is an extra added bonus.

    Though Sonny would be devastated losing his BFF Shawn, now that they’ve shared “feelings” on Friday’s show and have lined up a pedicure date for next week.

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 16, 2014 at 12:24 pm

      Nurse Sabrina can be Sonnys new “lets kill ’em” lovin’ sidekick and knock everyone off who comes into the hospital…lol

      • Xander

        March 17, 2014 at 8:56 am

        Sabrina should turn out to be Ric and Sonny’s little sister. She should be Ric’s sister and Sonny’s half sister from their mother. I have always stated that they should try and make this happen. It would be awesome to find out that Ric has known this all this time and hide it from Sonny. Courtney never worked out so why not try it with Sabrina. Plus with the whole Ric and Julian union, Sonny would definitely have issues with Sabrina being on Ric’s and Carols’ side. Sonny is all about family, how would he feel with Sabrina not wanting to be part of his world, but agrees to be in Ric’s life?

  12. Aria

    March 15, 2014 at 7:19 am

    Was anyone annoyed with today’s episode (friday) with Morgan ?? Or should I say RC ? Morgan barely knew that both Michael and his dumb ass are related to Luke !! Yet he acted like Luke is some distant relative. Did RC forget that Luke is Morgan & micaels mom’s uncle and their grandma Bobbie brother??? In conversation with Kiki he said if Luke married Tracy then he would be related by marriage to Luke (wtf) RC prides himself in knowing GH history yet this piece of info he had completely wrong. It was so annoying to see how that scene with Kiki played out.

    • Aria

      March 15, 2014 at 7:22 am

      Michael is already related to Luke both he Morgan n their mom are Spencer’s from their maternal side of the family !!!!

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 16, 2014 at 1:40 pm

      They hardly show Bobbie…i’d like to see her reaction to Luke’s odd behavior!!!

      • Shay

        March 22, 2014 at 8:58 am

        Some of us consider that a real blessing, jimh….besides given “Luke’s” pointed observations these days, it would be remiss if he didn’t (have a rude reaction of his own and) make a crack about “Barbara Jean’s” over-reliance on fillers and plastic surgery…….we both know that won’t be happening anytime soon!!!!!! Having said that, they could never get away with this “switcheroo?” caper if Laura, Ethan, Lucky, Holly or Scorpio were anywhere around now….while Tracy and the Ben-obsessed Lulu are blissfully ignorant to Spencer’s bizarre peculiarities and inconsistencies, these other characters would never be….even “Slim” should be having a “lightbulb” moment here soon…she definitely needs to cross paths with “Luke” again in the near future.

    March 15, 2014 at 8:45 am

    If the character she’s playing turns out to be TJ’s mom that could be a good story for the Shawn and TJ in a lot of ways.I could see Shawn been protective of TJ and not wanting him to be hurt by his mom.However if she’s not TJ’s mom then i think she’s someone from Shawn and/or TJ’s past.

  14. janet

    March 15, 2014 at 10:47 am

    She is beautiful. Maybe its me but if she turns out to be TJ’s mom, How old was she when she had him.5 ? I have comethisclose to not bothering to watch this mess lately TJ could certainly use his mom. Sean for a father turned into a joke. he is a mob hit man. can’t say killer for hire because he can’t seem to hit the barn never mind the broadside. Exciting for an actress I have never heard of or a character I probably won’t care about. bring back Tristan Rogers ,Genie Francis etc .that would be someone to get excited about.

    • the brother

      March 17, 2014 at 12:31 pm

      isn’t Sean Donnely a bit old to be TJ’s father? Does that make his and Tiffany’s red-headed daughter Anna Donnely the half sister of TJ and cousin of Lucas Jerome?

      • janet

        March 21, 2014 at 11:10 am

        not sean Donnally, sean Sonnys goon. He is TJ’s foster father. Of course this killer for hire has almost cost TJ his life..I shouldn’t be surprised Sonny has almost killed each of his kids, .

  15. harry

    March 15, 2014 at 11:13 am

    Well, Sean needs a girl friend, but he’s boring as dishwater.
    The cast is already bloated, so maybe they could get rid of Sabrina, Felix, Brad, Dr O and quit with the stunt casting

    • boes

      March 15, 2014 at 2:46 pm

      Everything YOU said! And dump Kiki, Silas and Franko too.

      • mbmomof3

        March 16, 2014 at 7:28 pm

        Ditto! No more newbie please.

    • Sharonda

      March 17, 2014 at 9:30 am

      IA. It’s not that we can’t use newbies, but believable and talented. Hint: I want Debbie Morgan on here to play Sean’s sister! We can do without Felix, Sabrina, Silas, Kiki, Michael, Carly, Morgan, Julian, Carlos, Ava, Sam -she has no purpose now. But we do need diversity with talent on here.

    • Shay

      March 22, 2014 at 8:46 am

      I’m with you, Harry…except for the part about “Dr. O.” She’s a real keeper! And hard as it is to believe, Brad doesn’t even bother me so much anymore….getting him away from Felix and into “Lucasland” has done wonders for the character! Still want to see his family brought on in the forms of “Yank and Jade” from Asian Quarter days.

  16. Ghlover

    March 15, 2014 at 12:25 pm

    Its great to see diversity on this show. Any thoughts on who should play Nina? My heart says Susan Haskell but i doubt it :(( My next choice would be Tamara Braun or Michelle Staford or Elizabeth H. ( soon to be ex-Chloe, Y&R)

    • jimh(leave to beaver)

      March 15, 2014 at 2:30 pm

      Gina Tognoni, Beth Chamberlain and Rebecca Buding are others id consider…Susan Haskel would be nice but i think Tamara Braun would be perfect!!!

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 16, 2014 at 12:13 pm

      Also, if Nina’s father is introduced: David Selby, George Hamilton, or William Devane; maybe Ron Raines or Jerry ver Dorn.

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 16, 2014 at 5:07 pm

      Also, i wonder if theyll somehow be related to the Cassidines…Madeline couldve been married or had an affair with Victor(making him Nina’s daddy)…then they wouldnt have to add someone else to play Nina’s father like the actors i suggested!!!

  17. boes

    March 15, 2014 at 2:49 pm

    I think we’ve already seen “Nina”. That’s who Shirley Jones is really playing.
    Being married to Silas can really age a girl!

  18. Ang

    March 15, 2014 at 6:18 pm

    Maybe she can become Patrick’s new love interest. Just because she’s African-American, doesn’t mean she has to be paired with Shawn.

    • Xander

      March 17, 2014 at 8:50 am

      sorry babe but did you forget what happened when they paired Alexis up with Shaun. Not going to happen. Molly and TJ work because they are still young. Older interracial relationships don’t bode well with older viewers.

  19. Tim

    March 16, 2014 at 5:05 pm

    No need for another NEW character. Focus on the ones we rarely see! Shawn is a cool dude but we dont care about his back story.

    • mbmomof3

      Same goes for Donna Mills??? Oh wait, she’s off limits.

  20. David Evan Smith

    March 16, 2014 at 10:17 pm

    In the closing credits, she was tagged as playing Jordan Ashford, so she’s most likely TJ’s mother.

  21. jess

    March 17, 2014 at 6:40 am

    Beautiful woman, let’s hope they give her a story line worth watching.

  22. dmr

    March 17, 2014 at 1:16 pm

    Another character who will take away from the core, legacy characters. Too many residents in Port Charles, as it is. A very pretty woman, though.

  23. the brother

    March 18, 2014 at 9:37 am

    hmmmm TJ is “Tommy Junior” but no relation to Tom and Simone Hardy?

    these writers really need to dig deeper when they name these new charatcters:

    – John Zachara vs John McBain
    – Olivia Falconeri vs Olivia Jerome
    – Shawn Bultler vs Sean Donnely
    – Tom Ashford Jr vs Tom Hardy
    – James (Jimmy) Reeves vs Jimmy Lee Holt

    I know it’s been 50 yrs or so but if the writing team is going to honor legacy characters, how about making references easier on the viewer?



    NOT Mr Spencer.

  24. Linda

    March 18, 2014 at 2:09 pm

    I think the actress used to play Whitney on the soap Passions.

  25. janet

    March 19, 2014 at 8:29 am

    Pretty soon Julian and AJ will be dead. There room for the newbies. Scummy wins again. My give a damns busted this show can not entice me to watch anymore .

  26. Karen

    March 20, 2014 at 9:37 am

    wow! a black family on GH!! Bout tine!!

  27. Kevin Steele

    March 21, 2014 at 11:17 pm

    Would it be fabulous if Jordan has another reason for staying in town and that is she is the so-called missing Quartermaine heir? I mean…they have been danging that tidbit for some time and what if…she’s one of the Ward’s?! That would make her and TJ a member of the clan! PLUS since they are either about to kill off AJ OR put him in a comatose situation that requires him to be airvac’d to Switzerland where all soap characters go in exile the Q clan could use more family members popping out of the woodwork! Plus she seems like she could hold her own against Tracy.

  28. Shay

    March 22, 2014 at 9:00 am

    TOTALLY unnecessary….next! (Since we know there is always another newbie waiting in the wings…….)

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 22, 2014 at 12:20 pm

      We are waiting for Nina to show up…lol

      • Shay

        March 22, 2014 at 3:31 pm

        At least she will have a purpose….we’re now so deep into the Silas backstory that Nina’s arrival will have a rhyme and reason, and I am expecting a seasoned soap professional to portray her. Although the word “newbie” is used as an umbrella term for any debuting actor or character, I rather reserve it as a dismissive/derisive label for the endless parade of useless, annoying characters/largely boring unknowns that “Cartini” keeps throwing our way, hoping against hope that they will stick by force-feeding them on us…you know, like Sobby, Felix, Taylor, Car-LOS!, Cardboard Cop, etc. I certainly don’t put veterans like Donna Mills, the Llanview Three, Ilene Kristen, or even any of the returning legacy GH-ers in that category, even if they all are not personal favorites of mine. It’s the unimaginative characters who are the true time and space wasters that earn my wrath as “newbies.” Most have been complete duds over the last year or so….with the grand exceptions of Britt and Dr. O.!!!!!!

      • Shay

        March 23, 2014 at 9:13 am

        By the way, does anyone else think that Nina actually died and is being kept on ice for Robin to revive??? Seems a very strange coincidence that she was supposedly in the same facility as Victor’s cryo-peeps, but was not actually seen alive, albeit in a vege-state. Perhaps she succumbed long ago and Madeline kept it a secret so Silas would not inherit his wife’s estate….and could Nina be a Cassadine, as well???? There has to be some link between Ms. Reeves and Victor given that the clinic seems to be groundzero for so much upcoming action.

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 22, 2014 at 4:29 pm

      We havent seen much of ‘Sobby’ as you call her most likely due to her real life pregnancy so your in luck…for now!!! And im certain Taylor is gone for good but i hope she gave T.J. an STD to pass to Molly(i dont mind teen storylines but those two bore me)…some of those other characters you mention the show really dont need!!!

      • Shay

        March 23, 2014 at 9:06 am

        Yes…it has been an ALMOST blessedly Sappy-free zone…wish it would be permanent!!! Also agree with you about the “consequences” of the Taylor/TJ hookup…LOL. (And about the boring coupling with Molly,,,,really don’t like her, period! She is just too chipper and whiny….) As for Britta and her Mutter, now THAT’S how one does new additions right! Particularly with Dr. O….we were introduced to her in dribs and drabs with small glimpses into her “world” until that magnificent “aha moment” when her place in the scheme of things all came together…of course the mega-talented Kathleen Gati’s superb command of her character certainly didn’t hurt either!!!! But that is an excellent example of launching a successful and beloved persona to an existing cast….by making people want more, not imposing unpolished, amateurish interlopers down the audiences’ throat via a daily barrage of scene-crashing.

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 22, 2014 at 4:31 pm

      But Britt and Mutter can stay for good!!! 4got to add that!!!

    Yes She is beautiful. I have to say that purple dress she wore on May 8th was amazing. I have been binge watching GH as I was gone all summer and I have about 80 episodes to watch. Anyway, my daughter was in the Miss California pageant and is in love with this dress. If Miss Vinessa Antoine would tell us where this dress is from it would be greatly appreciated. I’m sure it is way out our price range but it’s fun to dream with my daughter. Thank you for your time & attention.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
