Wally Kurth Back To Work On General Hospital!

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

Looks like the return of Ned Ashton went very well during the death of Edward Quartermaine episodes …  so much so that actor Wally Kurth is back at General Hospital today taping new episodes as Tracy Q’s son.  Will Ned try to take total control of ELQ?

As soapers know, Kurth is also currently seen on Days of our Lives playing Sonny’s (Freddie Smith) dad, Justin Kiriakis, so it will be interesting to see how things pan out.

The news was first reported today by Soap Opera Uncensored and then, according to Soap Opera Digest, later confirmed by ABC that Kurth is indeed back in Port Charles right now!

So would you like to see Wally back full-time on GH? Or, do you want him in Salem on DAYS? Or both shows,  if things could be worked out? Weigh-in!

I want him on both shows I mean we hardly see him on #Days but I like him better as Justin BUT I was also hoping to see him be there to defend Tracy because everyone doesn’t like her but I do:(

I like him on Days, but if they don’t give him a storyline, then he should definitely jump to GH.

If he can get good work at GH, more power to him. BUT … I don’t want him to leave as Justin! Hope he can pull off both. I mean it’s not like he’s got an actual SL on Days, but I don’t want to see his character go, either. He should be able to do both, I’d think.

Ned needs to come back to GH. There’s a reason I stopped watching Days all those years ago. Days of our Lives is a boring soap, and to tell ya the truth, I’m actually surprised it’s still on the air.

Great news that they are giving us more Wally on GH. He definitely should be back on GH. COnsidering Days has him on screen like once every few months, I would much prefer him back on GH full time

Too many actors on the show with too little to do.

I agree with you. GH can’t just bring every available soap star onto the canvas; too many actors, no stories for them.

i think he can do both (recurring) , unless someone offers him a contract! DAYS is taped so many months ahead and if Wally is available. I like that GH is an Option. Pretty cool, on duelling networks and shows that air at the same time in some markets.

Days is the worst soap (not sure how i still watch) they don’t utilize him. He needs to back on GH!!

Patrick
Guest

Oye! I’d be happy for him, doing both… he’s that ,,, likeable… ! my first thought, was to my DAYS allegiance…. he has to stay on DAYS…

but, i enjoyed his scenes with Tracy… this will establish the quartermaines…. I too, thought, that with AJ… we’d have more scenes with Monica and Tracy… but, not so much? so, hopefully, Ned and Tracy and Monica and AJ can having mother/son and family scenes….

It’s always to see Wally and Jane Elliott together since they have great chemistry.

Always a fan of Wally Kurth. DOOL doesn’t use him enough and I LOVED seeing him back as Ned on GH. Maybe for the fans sake he can be recurring on both shows. GO WALLY!

So thrilled to hear that Wally is back at GH taping. Considering Days isn’t using him that much I am thrilled GH was able to use him.. More Ned and Justin for that matter.

Not upset by this; GH seems to give Wally material to work with. However, I hope he’s able to continue doing both GH and DAYS. He’s recurring on DAYS so I don’t see why he can’t be recurring on GH and they can share the actor.

I would definetely like to see him in Port Charles! I remember him from years ago on Gh. In those leather pants(Eddie Maine) the rock singer.

It would be good in this day and age for soaps to be less proprietary about their recurring characters/actors. We’re all in this together! So if they don’t have the money or storyline to put Justin OR Ned front and center full time on either show, then let’s continue using Kurth on both. It may even cause fans of one show to check out the other and they are not timeslot competitors. We’re all for one and one for all right now. This is about survival, so make the best show possible!

No reason why he couldn’t do both (if Sony & ABC allow it). As long as he isn’t on contract with either show I see nothing wrong with it. Wally was my first guy crush when he joined Days as Justin. Interestingly he was having an affair with Anjelica Deveraux who was played by Jane Elliot who is now he mama Tracy on GH. Wally is also very nice and I met him and Judi Evans in LA at a Days event.

Finally! We need him at GH. The Quartermaines need a comeback and Ned is the man for the job.

Ces

I think if he jumps between the two it’s oK, but GH has way too many actors that don’t have storyines so we can’t just keep filling up the canvas because so & so is available. As much as we love all these actors – GH can’t support them all.

Days has no clue what to do with the actors they DO have so he’s definitely wasting his time over there.

Christy

glad to see him return for hopefully a longer run…. he’s much better at battling AJ than Tracy, which would bring more of the Q’s storyline back to play… and he had interactions with Sonny and of course Alexis and Monica

I’d like to see him work both shows if he can work it out. DAYS tape 3 months ahead. So, it would be possible to see on both shows the same day.

I love the idea of Wally coming back to GH! The Quartermaines need Ned, and DOOL doesn’t seem to give Justin much to do.

I think Wally Kurth, is better of having a contract, to both shows. And when one of those shows, lets him go then he can jump to the, other show. If he’s contract on Days of our lives, is up then he can jump to General Hospital.

I never really cared for the Justin character on Days Of Our Lives. W.K. can go back to General Hospital for all I care.

Days Of Our Lives

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?
