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 her.

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

Alyvia!!!

Reign or Alyvia

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.

After watching them all i say it must go to Chole from GH.

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)

The most talented and rising star= Chloe Lanier (Nelle)

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 did watch all the clips. I liked Reign Edwards from B&B and Alyvia Alyn Lind from Y&R as well.

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

I’m voting for Alyvia.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Drew and Nina Get Physical; Were You Surprised or Did You Expect it to Happen?

On the Tuesday, April 9th episode of General Hospital, Drew (Cameron Mathison) and Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) explosive relationship just turned up the heat another notch.

In story, Nina who was responsible (although she doesn’t see it that way) for Drew being sent to prison for insider trading when she tipped off the SEC, let out her feelings to him about how to get back in the good graces of her daughter, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) and Michael (Chad Duell). In doing so, she asks him for his help with it.

For months, the two have had nothing short of contentious moments, where Drew has not let Nina off the hook for what he did to him, or to his ex Carly (Laura Wright). Fast-forward and when alone in the Crimson office, Nina brings up wanting to stick it to Carly again.

As they banter back and forth, Drew can’t figure out why he should help Nina at all with any of her manipulations. Suddenly, as he tried to exit, his shirt rips and exposes his bare chest and abs, and Nina get quite an eyeful. From there, things become physical and before you know it, Drew and Nina are making out and having their version of hate-sex.

Cameron Mathison spoke to Soap Opera Digest on the shocking turn events, sharing, “I didn’t see it coming at all. I really didn’t. I think the audience did. Cynthia did some appearances and I guess the audience was ‘You and Drew, there’s some sexy chemistry there.’ I was like, ‘Wait, what? Really?’ I didn’t even get it. So I love it that it was very unexpected. The writers saw it, too. And, I love that it’s not a typical way for two people to be … physical. I was gonna say intimate, but there’s not a lot of intimacy there. And then as soon as it’s over, it’s back to arguing and giving each other crap again. It was really cute and really well done.”

As the fallout for their office room romp will air on the Wednesday April 10th episode, just how will the two deal with the fact that they had this fiery passionate moment in the weeks and months ahead? Will this be Nina’s new plot to get at Carly to be seen with her ex? Will Drew and Nina never speak of this again? (Well, this is a soap opera, after all, that’s pretty doubtful), or is this part of a major reset for some of the characters on the canvas now that Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte are co-head writing the show?

Speaking on the aftermath of the tryst, Mathison added, “The two of them are both like, all right, let’s forget about that and move on. It’s like a weird kind of aggression attraction. There’s obviously attraction there, but I don’t think either of them expected it, and I think they’re both totally shocked and surprised by it. I think Drew gets a kick out of it whereas Nina is a little embarrassed by it.”

Now let us know, did you see this coming? Did you think Drew and Nina would have sex? What do you think of the story turn? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Asher Antonyzyn Shares, “I Think That If Jason Doesn’t Get Sent Away Again, He and Danny Will Have a Really Great Connection”

It is clear that Danny Morgan (Asher Antonyzyn), as of right now, has the most character traits of his father, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). When Jason returned to Port Charles and was hiding out at the Quartermaine boat house, viewers saw that Danny wanted to help out his dad as much as he could.

When the two shared a heart-to-heart about Danny’s passions and Jason learned he is turning out to be a sort of adrenaline junkie like himself, the father and son shared a bonding moment.

‘Asher Antonyzyn spoke to Soap Opera Digest about Danny having a lot more to do in story now that Jason is back, and how it has been working with Steve Burton and where he thinks the on-screen relationship can go.

When speaking of how Danny is drawn to adrenaline and danger like his father, Asher expressed: “I can’t keep count of all the times that people say, ‘Danny, he’s just like his dad!’ I think that if Jason doesn’t get sent away again, he and Danny will have a really great connection.”

On his screen-time with Steve Burton, Antonyzyn added,  “When Steve Burton was coming back as Jason, I was like, ‘Since Danny never really had storyline with him, maybe I’ll come back out here a lot more and be able to do that with him.’ And then it happened! So that was pretty cool.”

So, do you hope that Danny and Jason’s connection is explored further? Do you think we will watch Asher grow up and become Jason Morgan 2.0? Comment below.
