I’m from Canada so I’ve already watched Monday’s episode of Y&R and Michelle has slipped back into the role of Phyllis seamlessly. It’s almost as if she never left the show, and she’s captivating as ever. Mark is doing a great job as Adam despite being younger than previous actors who played him, and the age difference is quite apparent when he’s paired with Michelle Stafford, since she’s twenty years older than he is. It’s hard not to miss Michael Muhney’s portrayal because he’s a fantastic actor, but Mark checks all the boxes as the black sheep of the Newman… Read more »

Re: your remark about Coby Ryan McLaughlin playing Adam. I never thought in my wildest dream I could agree on that, but I certainly do.

Oh my YES, Coby Ryan McLaughlin would have been a wonderful Adam…I think Coby is an excellent actor and doing a fantastic job as Shiloh…I am actually enjoying GH more that Y&R at the time…

Absolutely, Jimmy—-TPTB missed the mark ( no pun intended) as far as Adam is concerned. Coby is definitely the reincarnation of Adam—to the letter!! A perfect fit.
I am not feeling nuAdam yet—-mismatched with everyone–women and men alike. He still has milk-breath……the age is perfect, but Adam was aged….
Reverting to the character’s real age does no one any favors as he looks young enough to be Sharon’s son—-biologically, he can be!! I’ve always had a hard time with that “imbalance”.

I had a feeling Nina’ son Chance was the mystery-Chancellor link—but, Chance is a good guy!! Why is he messing with Adam?
As far as Phyllis? This is the persona who first came to GC. Is Phyllis up to her old tricks? I can’t way for the butterfly to let loose!!

PS….I hope Chelsea’s visit is just that—-a very short sojourn!!

Well get ready they are bringing back Avery /Betty Crocker ! Ugh he has turned back the clock I hated Mal Young but JG I never cared for his boring version either so I guess it’s back to Netflix I go lol!

Hey, Kay,
If truth be told, I don’t mind Avery as much as I do Chelsea—-the redeemed chameleon that is Chelsea gets zero tolerance from me. The interchangeable color of her coat(s) is/are just below the surface. Never liked her; never will. ❤️

always excited for more stafford nu adam is a good actor but he has no chemistry with sharon and as a matter of fact very little chemistry with most people he has interacted with and the chelsea return is whatever the bottom line is the show is very very boring and it feels more of a move backward instead of forward the show and its current writing can cure your insomnia and send all of devons new friends packing talk about no chemistry added with generic songs that are horrible beyond belief my dvr may say goodbye to a long… Read more »

I wish someone would explain to me what the reason was to have Adam back at all. What has he added so far? Also, that generic music you spoke of? I thought it was me. Being older than most of the others here, thought it maybe wasn’t as boring and bad as I thought it was.
Kind of like elevator music with lyrics.

Hi Richard,
Signorelli–the diminuative title of ” Young Lords”( masculine plural)—-your name is an old, noble Italian surname–be proud…
Anyway….I share your feelings for nuAdam—everything is happening too fast without rhyme or reason—-a mish-mash of blending old characters with the new —–by throwing old characters’ names hither and yon, does not pique interest nor arouse curiosity. I am assuming that’s the purpose?
I do have insomnia—–we’ll see if it works. Stay tuned, LOL.

I always enjoy seeing cast members outside of the show. I especially enjoyed seeing Mark Grossman since so far he hasn’t smiled much on the show and I wanted to see him outside of the character. I am a huge Muhney fan but I have to say I’m enjoying Mark G. as Adam – a good casting decision. So glad to see MCE return. Michelle Stafford looked absolutely gorgeous; and am glad she gave a shout-out to Gina Tognoni, as it must be an awkward situation for her at times. I was a fan of hers when she played Phyllis… Read more »

Hi, Jennifer,
That’s exactly the point…..Phyllis was not Gina’s to change. One cannot make a character, who stormed into GC; into a situation; into people’s lives like Michelle’s Phyllis did, for years and have another actress come in and change a character’s “ingredients”; her “facade”…..never took to Gina’s version. Tigress versus pussy cat!! Peace !!

Hey Celia, you may have mis-read my post LOL – I much prefer Gina; and hate the way they did this.

Celia
Guest

Hi, Jennifer, I know you prefer Gina—I really do love Gina ( back from OLTL) —But, I have always felt that Michelle is Phyllis. It’s amazing how some of us feel that Gina took Phyllis by the horns and liked the change in the character; while some of us feel Michelle’s Phyllis is incomparable. These sites would be very boring if we all felt the same way, LOL. And, yes—letting Gina go without explanation does feel like a betrayal…..you’re right. I wonder if MS decided to come back or if she was asked–does she have that kind of power, do… Read more »

Celia,
In one of the usual interviews we get when there is a new head writer, I read that either Tony Morina or Josh Griffith reached out to MS about returning. Hate the way this went down.

Hi Celia
Getting caught up on some of these older posts. I have never cared for M.S, but today’s show with Summer being cared for by her old/new mom, was so sweet and touching, I have to admit to liking her better as Phyllis again than I liked her as Nina. She seems more in her element, back in GC than she did in PC. She is different somehow, but can’t put my finger on it, help me out!

Hi, Violet, It’s 3:42 in the morning, and my eyes are wide open–tired, but can’t fall asleep….one of those white nights for me– I was about twelve when I was old enough to grasp what was going on with the stories. Before that, it’s mostly sort of a blur. But, I remember Michelle well—I was fascinated by her willowy figure and aura. I truly was completely captivated; mouth agape!! My grandmother sat for me and my siblings ( all six of us, LOL) while my mother was in law school. She watched many a soap—So, I became a soap-opera addict.… Read more »

Celia Thanks for your insightful explanations. You never fail! I have never cared for M.S but since she’s been back in GC, I am having second thoughts. She has become softer and more vulnerable somehow, which I think Jack may be picking up on. I also think her portrayal of Nina, compounded my dislike of her. I agree with your assessment of Ms. Watros as Nina. While I did like her in other roles, she’s not doing it this time. I actually think Gina would have worked out better. I am anxious to see how mama Celeste and Jack get… Read more »

I so agree! Mark Grossman is an incredible actor. He is so believable that he has made me cry twice, and, for the first time in my 71 years, I am routing for the “bad guy”.

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.
