“General Hospital” needs more new characters.

Robert

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.

jimh(leave it beaver)

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

su0000
su0000

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.

Never mind. Brook Kerr played Whitney on Passions.

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.

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

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

Beth

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)

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!!!

Beautiful woman!

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

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.

Jules

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

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.

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

su0000

Vinessa might be Sean’s sister ..

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!!!

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.

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

Xander
Xander

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?

Aria

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

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)

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

Shay

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.

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.

janet
janet

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
the brother

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
janet

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, .

harry

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

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

Ditto! No more newbie please.

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
Shay

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.

Ghlover

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)
jimh(leave to beaver)

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)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

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)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

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!!!

boes

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

Ang

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
Xander

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.

Tim

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.

Thank you.

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

David Evan Smith

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

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

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.

the brother
the brother

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?

thanks,

NOT Mr Spencer.

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

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 .

Karen

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

Kevin Steele

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.

Shay
Shay

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

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

We are waiting for Nina to show up…lol

Shay
Shay

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
Shay

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)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

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
Shay

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)

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.

General Hospital

The Triumphant Return of Kelly Thiebaud As GH’s Dr. Britt Westbourne

When a shocked Nurse Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) exclaimed “Dear lord, the Britch is back,” after seeing none other than Dr. Britt Westbourne with her lab coat hovering around the nurses station at “General Hospital”, you knew things were about to go down on the ABC daytime drama series.

Over the past few weeks, Kelly Thiebaud has been in action on-screen on General Hospital as the the trouble-making, complicated, Britt.   Since returning to the canvas, viewers learned that: Britt has been paroled from her previous crimes, seems to say she believes and actually likes her half-brother, Peter August (Wes Ramsey), has confronted her mutter in jail (Liesl Obrecht played by Kathleen Gati), whom Peter framed, and showed up at Brad’s (Parry Shen) hearing to be there for her bestie, who has been in hot water for the baby switch of Wiley.

But, there have been a lot more intriguing things than even that! Britt is now hitting the sheets with none-other than Julian (William deVry), and also let him know in no uncertain terms she knows his part in the whole Brad cover-up.   But what is her true motive?  We also learned in a run-in at GH, that Neil (Joe Flanigan) and Britt know each other from somewhere.  He is trying to put his finger on just where, but does Britt know? Probably!

However, the best  and most entertaining moment on soaps last week was when Britt arrived in her lab coat to GH and revealed to both Felix and Liz (Rebecca Herbst) that she had worked hard enough to be able to get her medical license restored … and that Monica (Leslie Charleson) brought her on with a provisional acceptance as a temporary replacement for Dr. Kim Nero as an OBGYN for the hospital. Felix says give it two weeks and she will do something to mess things up.

Just then, in our favorite scene of the week, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West) happen by, and when Britt, who is Nik’s ex, sees him she saunters over to him and slaps him hard across the face and spits out, “That’s for Spencer.”  She goes on to berate him for how he hurt his son; by letting him believe that his father was dead for three years!  Britt tells Nikolas it would serve him right if Spencer knew spoke to him again.

Next, Elizabeth chimes in and tells Britt to stop acting all high and mighty.  Britt fires back that she is not surprised that Liz, another one of Nik’s ex’s, would defend him.  Britt says, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Scene after scene, Kelly Thiebaud has lit up the screen and put the “feisty” back onto the ABC soap opera.  As an actress, Kelly can go from the heavy drama, to the comedic, to the sexy, all with ease.

In the March 30th issue of Soap Opera Digest, Thiebaud said of her return:  “Frank Valentini reached out to me the beginning of the year and mentioned that the writers wanted to bring me back for a bit.  I said,’Of course, I will,  I would love nothing more than that!”‘ I just really connect with Britt and have a blast playing her.”

So let us know, have you been enjoying the return of Kelly as Dr. Britt Westbourne, thus far? What do you think Britt is up to? Comment below.

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alexis Breaks Three Years of Sobriety, Carly Locks Up Nelle, Nikolas & Liz Continue to Reconnect

On Friday’s episode of General Hospital, after downing a drink at a bar, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) held off on a second one, but unfortunately and sadly lost her sobriety of three years.  When she called people in her life to come get her out of the bar and home,  no one was available, so she called none other than her ex Julian (William deVry).

And it was Julian to the rescue, who also took the legal eagle to an AA meeting. The car ride between them was not all pleasant, especially when Alexis went down memory lane for a moment and recalled when Julian held a knife at her throat.  After the fallout with Neil (Joe Flanagan), she wondered why she ruins all her relationships … consistently.

CourtesyABC

Elsewhere. Michael (Chad Duell) is trying to get Nelle (Chloe Lanier) to sign and authorize the heart defect surgery on Wiley.  Michael said they  need both parents signature on the consent forms and Nelle is refusing to sign.  When Carly (Laura Wright) finds out she is ready to handle Nelle and goes up on the hospital rooftop to confront her.   Once there, she tells Nelle this is her chance to get people over to her side by signing the consent to let her son have the surgery he needs.  Carly also tells her that Wiley is her leverage.  If she lets her son die, she has nothing to hold over everybody.  And still, after all of that, Nelle refuses to sign.  So, resourceful Carly locks Nelle in and up on the roof so she can’t leave!  Will Nelle come to her senses for a few seconds and sign the papers?  Previously, Nelle told Michael her kidney surgery basically ruined her life, so she does not want to do the same thing to their son.

Courtesy/ABC

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) is worried about Cameron (William Lipton) and so she sets him up with a therapy session with Neil.  Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) happens by the hospital after getting Ava (Maura West) squared away with Franco (Roger Howarth) for his portrait painting of her in the art room.  He runs into Liz and she shares her concerns for Cameron, and how familiar it is to he,r and how traumatized he must be – having two incidents where he was basically kidnapped within a years time.  She bring up how when she was raped when she was younger that Emily, Lucky and Nikolas were there for her.  Are Nikolas and Liz growing closer again?  Are Ava and Franco?

And … leave it to Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) to get what she wants …. and what she wants is to hit the hay with Julian, after Julian hit her up late after dropping off Alexis.  Is he on the rebound from his car talk with Alexis? Or, is she just so into Britt for some fun?

So, were you upset that Alexis drank? Do you like Britt and Julian hooking-up? Will Carly get Nelle to sign the consent forms  for Wiley’s surgery? And, are you intrigued by a redux of a Liz and Nikolas romance? Comment below.
