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!

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.

Mo

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.

Timmm

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.

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
