Wally Kurth Returning To GH As Ned, While Also Staying Recurring at DAYS!

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

Tracy (Jane Elliot) is having a health crisis and so it would seem a perfect time for her son Ned Ashton (Wally Kurth) to come back into the picture to help take care of his mom, and to help figure out exactly what is going on with ELQ, Hayden (Rebecca Budig), and who may be trying to hurt Tracy!

Enter, Wally Kurth! The fan favorite who was recently taken off contract by DAYS, but remains recurring with the NBC soap opera as Justin Kiriakis, can now also be recurring with General Hospital, and so that allows Wally to venture back to GH from time to time.

Kurth told Soap Opera Digest of his impending return to Port Charles which begins on March 28th; “I am ecstatic to return to Port Charles… I’ve really missed being there and look forward to seeing all my friends.”

So glad to hear Ned is coming back to GH? Do you think he will help Tracy, and figure out what is happening to her, and why?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Sounds good to me, though I would have preferred DAYS to have kept Wally on contract, to really explore the Justin & Adrienne situation, with Eve (Kassie DePaiva), but that ship has unfortunately sailed. Hopefully, adding Ned back into the Quarermaine mix will help, and a reunion with Olivia, will hopefully be in the works, I want to see more movie and popcorn nights with Ned & Liv.

Great news, always good to see Wally back home on GH where he belongs. There’s plenty for Ned to get involved in, with whatever is going on with Tracy and the whole ELQ story. Not to mention the budding romance with Olivia that was just starting to gain a little steam on his last visit. I thought they had the makings of a good couple. This is the best of both worlds for him. He gets to appear on both shows, and the fans of GH and DOOL are the ones that benefit the most.

Good news…i watch both shows…perhaps Ned will learn Rachel is his half sister…thought Paul was her daddy but i guess Aston will be the lucky(sarcasm) pappa instead.

They should KEEP him and have him get back and run ELQ!

Yes! I’ve always enjoyed WK on GH. With Ned helming ELQ, a business story-line can be front burner and would make sense. Some intrigue, some romance, some competition, some dirty-dealing, some humor…lots of Quartermaine’s. Much more interesting than stupid arms dealing. Ugh.

Love Wally 🙂

Yea!!! If recurring is all we can get in the brave new world of soaps I’ll take it. It’s also given us Scorpio, and maybe Jax in the future. And who knows maybe Lois to rein in Brooklyn, her daughter with Ned, when Quinn needs a place to run and hide from B&B. I still wish they would do more fun, non-hospital stories with some other favs…Monica, Felicia, Mac, Frisco, Lucy…

Good! Wally/Ned will be back!
I’m sure he will put some omph into the ELQ takeover !

I’m enjoying Tracy..
my take;
Tracy got brain parasites in Mexico..
Some type of parasites in her .
(it is not rare, it happens and would mess her up like she is)

Love DAYs, but their loss could be GH’s gain…sign him to contrace GH!

I do have to agree with you, Phil—while I do like him as Justin on DAYS, I do prefer him as Ned on GH and his scenes with Jane Elliot as Tracy are always outstanding. Maybe GH will get the hint and sign him.

Oh, I NEVER said that I liked him better as Ned, in fact I don’t! I prefer him as Justin. DAYS just screwed up by ditching him and Judi Evans and then firing Kassie DePaiva…. I was suggesting GH cash in on DAYS stupidity!

is this permanent? I keep thinking of how they did Robert. He kind of just disppeared. love ned so I hope so, but have to admit. never could stand olivia. but then again there aren’t many on GH now that I care for ..was the 80’s 90’s fan and to me, Sonny and Alexis who also I don’t care for are new. like to see more of laura, thought she was supposed to have s real Story, not just a filler role. Big Frisco fan, would love him back even part time. Maybe he and laura could hook up. sorry… Read more »

I love the Ned character. He really is the “glue” that pulls a lot of storylines together.

I felt so bad for Wally when DOOL took him off contract; felt like it was such a slap in his face. However, as soon as I heard the news, I began hoping it would mean he could and would come back to GH. This is such great news for all his fans and for the show. Welcome home, Wally!

If you felt like DAYS slapped Wally in the face, DW, does that mean GH continues to slap Wally in the face? GH doesn’t have Wally on contract either. He’s free to go back and forth until he’s offered something better. Some people may argue that his contract with DAYS caused him to lose work where he would have been used more at GH, but there was no guarantee. Plus, little work at DAYS under contract meant he was still being payed for a certain amount of episodes even if he didn’t appear. GH has their chance to sign him… Read more »

I was happy for Wally when he was offered a contract at DOOL. I wished GH would have done it first, but he deserved to have a contract somewhere and DOOL got there first. I felt it was a slap in the face to offer him a contract, giving the impression he would be working steadily for a long period of time (granted, no one knows what the length of the contract was) and then just a few months later, he was dropped to recurring again. Selfishly, I am happy as a fan of GH that he’ll be able to… Read more »

EP Frank at GH has a lot to do with who comes and who goes but he listens to his HW to and Ron didnt care for the vets. The lady writers do and they will sink their teeth into the character of Ned and the viewers will be the ones who reap the benefits!

Would be more excited with different writers. Wally is an asset to this show but since his character has no mob ties I doubt he will get much in the way of story.

AMEN! Wally is one of my all time favorite GH characters and he is a Q! What I like most is he is back on GH now and he should be. Too many times we’ve seen characters deal with major issues and GH wont or cannot bring someone back. We’ve seen this a lot in the past with Laura when Luke needed her or her kids needed their mom. Tracy is ill, Ned should be by her side and he will be! Whomever is responsible for this, god bless you! I cannot wait for Ned and Hayden to nip at… Read more »

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
