ok- When I look at Melody I see Nikki of Y&R who has a middle aged son Nick and a daughter Victoria, both have grown children and one married, and that makes Nikki a grandmother of adults.. And if either Noha or Summer have a baby, and both could, then Nikki will be a great grandmother.. As a matter of fact that could happen any day.. Now I see Nikki playing the role of a mother of a son the same age or younger than her married granddaughter Summer who could make her a ‘great grandmother, Y&R.. That is too… Read more »

Wasn’t Cassie a teenager when she died, around 14-15 yrs. old? How long has she been dead? She would be over 30 by now I believe. Summer was conceived as a result of Nick’s grief over losing Cassie but now we have Summer, Mariah & Noah as peers hanging out together. Summer should be much younger & Mariah much older. Nick is definitely middle aged. Think of Lauren who has a son Scotty who is a doctor! Lauren should be pushing 60 but she was wanting a baby. And Paul & Christine “starting a family” cracks me up. Gotta love… Read more »

I love Sharon and Adam together in the past and hope Sharon and Adam nu Adam get together because Chelsea needs to be with someone other then Adam

I hope this does not mean that she will be leaving Y&R? Y&R could not afford to lose her, that soap is clinging on the edge as it is, with viewers upset over the new writers, and the outrageous story lines.

You’re absolutely right. Even the new eye candy can distract ne from the awful dialogue, plodding and dangling storylines and the lack of continuity. Somebody needs to step in and do something about this. I could d wonders for this show.

I can’t believe Melody Thomas Scott would join an awful show like this. Profanity, gay sex and terrible acting. Couldn’t get through one episode. Makes me sick!

This show and everyone on it are hot messes. The producer has sued half the cast to recover salaries because these people supposedly didn’t support the show through social media. He is suing Bryan Craig for not doing enough work and hit on everybody on the set. He had closeted actor Reese Mishler “practice” giving oral sex with him in his apartment and hotel room. BAD SHOW, BAD PEOPLE.

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.
