As much as I don’t care for the character of Nelle, I do think that Chloe Lanier is a good actress and tried to do a good job with the lackluster storyline that she was given. I’ve never cared for the character of Kristina Davis-too selfish and spoiled in my opinion and I like the character better when she is off-air. Summer King, I think had a terrible storyline with Luca-boring, and I really haven’t missed the character. Alyvia Alyn Lind, as Faith, is a cute child actress and has done well with the material that has been given to… Read more »

No contest, its Alyvia Alyn Lind. She is a bright light who will someday be a Hollywood superstar!

All of these are impressive performances, though I’m not a fan of Ms. Ainsworth. My choice would be Chloe Lanier, who took a typical revenge storyline and sent it off into the stratosphere. At times cunning, seductive, pathetic, angry, damaged…she did it all beautifully. It takes a lot for an actor to make you dislike the character and yet want to see more of them. Chloe Lanier is an actress to watch.

Yes, I totally agree with you. Chloe Lanier delivered a very good scene.

While I enjoyed all the reels I felt L.A.’s was the best. I had wanted her to win for her previous nomination in her teen abuse storyline but I feel she has matured as an actress over the years and deserves this win even more.

Lexi Ainsworth! She has had my vote since I heard she was nominated! Love Chloe, Lexie is phenomenal! Now if only GH would use her more!

Hands down–Chloe Lainer as Nelle. She’s an amazingly gifted actress and I truly think she is going to hit the big time one day.
I am not sure why Hunter King was even nominated as she had almost no scenes this whole year.

WHOOSH! What’s that sound? The idea that Camryn Grimes wasn’t nominated for her role as Mariah. She’s a real natural, so good at acting you do not even see her trying
I wish they would not put children in the same category as “younger actor or actress.” Somehow, it seems wrong to see a seven year old competing with a twenty nine year old.

Camryn does a good job.

Yes, they could have the even younger set compete together (boys and girls) like they do with the guest actor category.

It’s either Hunter King or Reign Edwards. Both had superb reels. I didn’t like Chloe lainers. Maybe next year, but not this year. I liked Lexi ainsworths but it wasn’t enough to keep me entertained. Alycia Linda was great but they rarely give it anybody that young. The last two people to get it at that age range was Camryn Grimes (2000) and Kimberly McCullough (1989)

I’d give it to Lexi Ainsworth. The scenes with her and Maurice Benard where Kristina comes out to Sonny were fantastic, as well as her monologue where she admitting to lying about school. It’s also very telling once again, both Lexi and Chloe Lanier’s reels feature a number of scenes shared with Maurice, that in some cases showcase his talent more than theirs. In fact, Lanier’s reel could have just as easily been a Maurce Benard Emmy reel. Just a further reminder of what a travesty it is that he didn’t get nominated. I don’t watch the other shows, but… Read more »

Chloe Lanier is good–deserved a better story–one that had the quality of plausibility.

If its done properly there is really only two choices #1 Alyvia Lyn Lind as Faith Newman or #2 Lexi Ainsworth as Kristina Corinthos.

I agree Nikki. Maybe Alyvia has to wait another year or two? Because of her young age maybe Lexi gets the nod? I wish she would be signed to a contract. She would be good to have in a good story. Her and Sonny are good together and I’d like to see her lay into Nelle! Kristini has more balls than Michael could ever dream of! They dropped Parker like a hot potato!

They are all meh, but Lexi deserves it. Jelly gave her a tough storyline to sell and she made it compelling.

Lexi Ainsworth gives a stellar performance over and over again… Really wish GH would use this great young actress more! She has taken difficult storylines and given compelling performances.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
