Sabrina Being Recast?

TeresaCastillo.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL has released a casting notice looking for a female character "originally from Mexico" who has "come to Port Charles to pursue a career in medicine." The character is labeled as a major recurring role with the possibility to become contract.

While this does immediately appear to be a dead ringer for Sabrina — and the character is said to begin shooting in late May around the time that Teresa Castillo (Sabrina) goes on maternity leave — a source tells Soaps In Depth that this casting notice is not for Sabrina, but for a new role.

Who do you think it could be?

AMC Hunk Takes Over At DAYS!

WilsonGaston.jpg

Just three months into playing DAYS OF OUR LIVES' Ben, Justin Gaston has been replaced by former ALL MY CHILDREN hottie Robert Scott Wilson (Pete) on the NBC soap. Due to the accelerated taping schedule on DAYS, Wilson was actually on-set doing scenes before Gaston had even made his late-February debut as Jordan's brother.

After Prospect Park shuttered the AMC reboot, Wilson returned to his gig as a male model on THE PRICE IS RIGHT, but today marked his final appearance on the CBS game show, as acknowledged by host Drew Carey. "Thank you ALL for your love and support! @PriceIsRight will always have a place in my heart and my journey," Wilson tweeted after the news broke. "Many new things on the horizon!"

Look for Wilson to make his DAYS debut --- opposite fellow AMC alumna Chrishell Stause (Amanda), who plays his alter ego's sister, Jordan -- in late May.

The "Other" Falconeri Baby?

DanteLuluBaby.jpg

"By the time I'm through, I won't be the villain of this story; I'll be the hero." Oh, that Liesl Obrecht knows how to connive her way out of corners with style, doesn't she? The GENERAL HOSPITAL baddie had a master plan to evade prison and it was a whopper! Late, late into the night, Dante and Lulu were bringing baby Ben home for the first time to his new home. When they opened the door, Olivia jumped up with gigantic "welcome home" sign and more energy than the average person has at three in the morning. Rather than put the cutie patootie right to bed, they sat up with him, for a spell and grappled with the issue of whether or not to rename him. Finally, the verdict came in. "Rocco Falconeri," it is.

Just as they were calling it night, Dante's phone rang. It was Obrecht calling from behind bars, saying she had a statement for him and only him. Against his better judgment, he complied. When he arrived, she instructed him to drop the charges against her because she had something he and his wife desperately wanted. Dante and Lulu had their son back and, as he saw it, they didn't need anything else. Obrecht smiled confidently and said cryptically, "How about your OTHER child?"

Since learning that Det. Sexypants was the son she gave birth to but gave to her sister, Madeline, when he was an infant, Obrecht was champing at the bit to tell Nathan that she was his mother. Madeline argued that nothing good could come from it, but Obrecht thought of a few practical reasons who he should know the truth. Like, what if Nathan and Britt met, hit it off and then slept together, not knowing they were siblings?

It was almost as if Obrecht had a hidden camera in Nathan's apartment because that's pretty much what was playing out at that exact moment! Oh, minus the slept together part. Not that it wasn't heading in that direction, because it was! They were both drunk and hurting and about to lock lips when Maxie appeared in her jammies. Britt caught her up on the events surrounding Dante and Lulu's biological son, which made her giddy with happiness. With "the mood" broken, they went to sleep, with Nathan in the bed and Britt on the sofa.

Although it was pushing three a.m., Luke was chatting it up with Sonny, weaving a white lie to cover his tush about a conversation with Ric. Little did he know that the doodie was about to hit the fan because Spencer was telling his father, Nikolas, that he heard his Uncle Luke telling some man (Julian) that "they had to get Uncle Sonny." How far would Luke go to insure Spencer keeps his mouth shut? We'll find out soon enough!

Next week on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Dante shares Obrecht's news with Lulu, Nikolas makes Liz an offer she can't refuse, and Ned returns to Port Charles. Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Gaskill Takes On The Bard!

Gaskill.jpg

From the "Just when I thought I'd heard everything" files has come STRIPPING SHAKESPEARE, a provocative new Web series from the We Make Movies filmmakers collective in Los Angeles. In each episode, famous scenes from The Bard's works are set in a scintillating new context, replete with professional pole dancers and burlesque performers. Who knew Shakespeare could be so sexy? Daytime TV veteran Brian Gaskill (Bobby, ALL MY CHIlDREN; Rafe, PORT CHARLES; Dylan, GUIDING LIGHT; ex-Ozzie, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), who is a member of the collective, appears in the episode airing this Sunday, April 13.

"My friend, Nicol Razon, produced it," Gaskill shares. "The series is about her taking her love of Shakespeare and putting it into a format that is maybe gonna raise some eyebrows, but it's also gonna promote conversation and get people to pay attention to what the filmmaker is doing to be creative."

This Sunday's episode is based on The Taming Of The Shrew with Gaskill reciting the lines of Petruchio opposite Razon as Kate. But don't look for the traditional, 16th century costuming and staging. Rather, it plays out in a much more imaginative way. "It's more like artistic music videos of Shakespeare," offers Gaskill, who first began performing the great poet's work back in high school. To experience it for yourself, visit Strippingshakespeare.com or the We Make Movies YouTube channel here.

GH Star Joins DAYS

Alicia_Leigh_Willis_487.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Alicia Leigh Willis (ex-Courtney) has landed herself a stint over on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. Look for the actress to first appear as Debra on Tuesday, April 22, tying into the storyline with the increasingly disturbed Liam. The casting information for the role described the character as "married to a man she thought was her perfect guy only to have the illusion shattered by his lies, manipulation, threats and dangerous actions." Sure sounds like Liam to us!

Madeline Caught Red-Handed!

NathanMadline.jpg

Silas, Sam and Nathan had it all planned out on Friday's GENERAL HOSPITAL. The idea was to plant a story in the newspaper that would lure Ava to the Metro Court Hotel to "finish off" Nakamura, the man who was the only witness to what really happened to Nina. But their trap snared an all-together different rat they never expected to catch!

The scene at Metro Court was set with Sam hiding under the bed covers posing as Nakamura and Nathan waiting in the other room for Ava to sneak in and make the kill. When the hotel door opened into the darkened room, a manicured hand pulled out a gigantic syringe and tiptoed to the bed to slay "Nakamura." Nathan quickly flipped on the lights and, with gun drawn, shouted, "Freeze! PCPD!" His mouth dropped open when he realized the would-be assassin wasn't Ava at all, but rather his mother, Madeline!

Meanwhile at GH, a warn out Britt took a call at the nurses' desk and was shocked to hear her mother on the other end. Obrecht was mighty proud of herself for not only getting her daughter released from police custody, but also for absconding with baby Ben! She wanted Britt to be happy and she knew that running away with "her son" would do it. Obrecht had worked out all the details of Britt's future, including a new home in a new country with a new identity for both Britt and Ben. Finally, Britt folded, pulled out a pen and paper and asked her mother where she was. Although Britt knew that what Obrecht had suggested was wrong, there was something that sounded heavenly about running off with Ben and starting a new life. "God help me," she told Brad. "I want my son."

Dante and Lulu wanted him, too. While he was working diligently trying to get a warrant to put Britt under surveillance, Lulu told Nikolas how her talk with Liz really buoyed her spirits. Nik mentioned his own visit with Liz and how discouraged he was that Ric spent the night with her. Lulu put that myth to rest, assuring him otherwise. But then, who was it that he heard in Liz's house if it wasn't Ric? He showed up at Liz's door and asked the same question, but Liz didn't need to answer. Obrecht stepped in behind her with a gun in her hand and said, "That would be me."

Next week Britt has a surprise for Dante and Lulu, Nathan has some explaining to do and Sonny confronts Luke about his crazy behavior! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

New Digital Soap Venture Ahead!

NetSoapsLogo.jpg

Corday Productions -- the team behind NBC's DAYS OF OUR LIVES -- is teaming up with digital media firm All Screens Media to launch Net Soaps/Net Novelas, a project aimed at creating and distributing original "interactive" soap operas on-line, but with a twist: Fans, actors and advertisers will all be able to participate in the development of the shows.

Net Soaps/Net Novelas plans to launch in the last quarter of 2014 through its own Web sites and distribution partners. While Net Soaps is the English-language version targeted at American audiences, Net Novelas will provide in-language programming for Latin America and Brazil. Web soap pioneer and daytime veteran Crystal Chappell (Dani, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTUIFUL; ex-Carly, DAYS; Olivia, GUIDING LIGHT; Maggie, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) has joined the venture to produce, direct and mentor new talent.

Who Is Annie Logan?

SusanPratt.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL gave a fun shout-out on its 51st anniversary episode — which aired on Tuesday, April 1 — to a fan-favorite character when Bobbie tearfully informed Scotty that Noah had dumped her for an old flame — Annie Logan. Just who is the third in Noah and Bobbie's off-screen triangle?

Annie, played by Susan Pratt, is Audrey Hardy's niece, an R.N. who made the Port Charles scene in 1978 and quickly became a fixture at the 7th floor nurses station. It was Annie who deduced that orphan Jeremy Hewitt (who she later adopted) was the carrier of the Lassa fever outbreak, which temporarily quarantined the hospital. During her five-year stay, she was paired with hunks Jeff, Joe, and Noah, but despite these romances, Annie left town with her much-discussed virginity still intact!

JeffAnnie.jpg

"I got a call from a girlfriend who told me, 'Susie, you were mentioned on the show today,'" Pratt tells Soaps In Depth. "I watched it on-line and thought it was great! It was exciting to hear 'Annie Logan' talked about on GH after all these years. It was funny to hear Scotty say, 'the virgin?' It was like an inside joke. I think it is just great that GH gives shout-outs to their fans like this. It was an honor to have Annie be referred to, especially on the 51st anniversary show."

Is Pratt, now a realtor in New York, open to reprising Annie if the show were to extend an invitation? "Absolutely," she says. "I still get out on auditions and I'm thinking about taking a trip to L.A. I have some wonderful friends out there including Carmen Thomas (Hillary, ALL MY CHILDREN) and Jamie Lee Curtis. You never know!"

Benard Dishes On Today's Carlypalooza!

SonnyAndCarlys.jpg

Today is a do-not-miss-it day for GENERAL HOSPITAL fans! Are you ready for the craziest treat ever, as served up by executive producer Frank Valentini and headwriter Ron Carlivati? In honor of the show's 51st anniversary, they have gathered the "three Carlys" for one-off-the-charts surprising scene with superstar Maurice Benard (Sonny)!

"It was like Disneyland to have all three of them on one show!" Benard says of the original Carly, Sarah Joy Brown, her super-popular recast, Tamara Braun, and the current blonde spitfire, Laura Wright. "I got to work with three actresses that I respect. Each one brought something different to the character. I had to be cautious of the fact that it was still Carly. I had to play three different energies but be aware that it was still Carly. It was very tricky. Each woman has a different energy, so if I just played the reality of what the circumstance was, it wouldn't work. It's a fine line, but it felt right. I felt really good about it."

If the cast and crew's reaction to what they shot is any indication, the fans are in for a treat! "I heard that people really loved it," Benard says. "It felt really honest but you also have to wink a tiny bit. This kind of thing has never been done. I haven't seen it yet but, as a fan myself, I can't wait!"

So don't forget to tune in today, Tuesday, April 1, at 2 p.m. EST and 1 p.m. PST/CST on ABC!

"Sonny Shot Me Because Of Ava"

CarlyAJHospital.jpg

Gun shot to the chest and brain aneurism aside, GENERAL HOSPITAL's A.J. wasn't too wounded to drop a huge bombshell right in Carly's lap! He had been in a coma fighting for his life for days, but it wasn't until Carly walked into his room and began to confess how much she wanted to shoot him that he began to show signs of life. "I think Sonny might have had that honor, but I can't be sure because Sonny's not talking... and neither are you," she said. That's all his subconscious needed to hear for his eyes to start blinking the way Frankenstein's did when those neck bolts got zapped with electricity! "Sonny shot me because of Ava," he moaned... then his eyes rolled back into his head and he crashed!

Sonny, meanwhile, was getting chewed out by Monica. (You go, girl!) She said that if she didn't know better that she'd think he was the one that shot A.J. Oh, if only she had Olivia's talents. You know, the predictions thing and not the "other" stuff that we can't speak of in our family magazine. Any way, Monica's ire most definitely hit Sonny right where it hurt, like in his conscience, because her words cued the dramatic music and a close up of Sonny's dark, guilty eyes!

Obrecht returned Britt's call, which was on speakerphone in the PCPD interrogation room. The plan was to get Dr. O to reveal where she was so the police could get her and rescue Ben in the process. But thanks to Lulu, that plan was shot in the foot. For a little lady, she sure has a big mouth! She burst into the interrogation room while the call was live, signaling to Obrecht that they were trying to trap her in a confession. After Obrecht hung up, she pulled a gun on someone in the room with her -- Liz! Yes, the evil doc was holding Liz and Ben hostage in Liz's house! O might have thought that was a good idea... until Nikolas showed up!

MONDAY: Nikolas senses something is off with Elizabeth. Sam enlists an unlikely person for help. Julian concocts a new plan to bring down Sonny. Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Springfield Drops In!

RickSpringfieldDiva.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL's Rick Springfield (ex-Noah) will soon turn up on Lifetime's DROP DEAD DIVA playing — you guessed it! — a bad boy rocker with some big-time problems. In the episode, titled "First Date," front man Liam Summers has legal drama stemming from his habit of trashing hotel rooms and comes to the firm for help. Might Jane and new hire Belinda prevent his irresponsible behavior from putting the band's next big tour at risk? "There's all sorts of reasons why Liam thinks he's getting kicked out of the band," Springfield previews. "You'll find out later on why that actually is."

"Brooke Elliott (Jane) is a doll," Springfield says of working with the series' star. "She did some really funny takes." But for the performer, in addition to getting some "meaty scenes," the best part of doing the appearance was getting to work with fellow guest star Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts, who plays the band's manager. When part of the shoot was postponed due to snow, the two had to make fast travel plans. "We both had to go to Nashville, and all the flights were canceled, so he gave me a ride back on his tour bus," the Grammy winner reveals, grinning. "We wrote a song — musicians don't like to waste time! I'm gonna see him next month... I want to write more with him."

Tune in to catch Springfield's episode on Sunday, March 30, at 9 p.m. EST. For more on what the multi-talented man is up to — including details on his soon-to-be released novel — catch his upcoming Keeping Track feature in Soaps In Depth.

GH's Wagner CALLS THE HEART

JackWagnerHeart.jpg

There's new romance brewing on Hallmark Channel's period drama WHEN CALLS THE HEART: Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, GENERAL HOSPITAL) has joined the cast as Mountie Forensic Investigator Bill Avery, and he's bringing the heat! First introduced in last week's episode, Avery arrived on horseback to find out the truth about the deadly explosion in Coal Valley that killed many of the locals, including the husband and son of Abigail Stanton (played by EDGE OF NIGHT's Lori Loughlin, Jody). Might Wagner's character help the shaky widow find her footing? Behind the scenes, it was the other way around. "Lori's an old friend, and a terrific actress," Wagner confides of his scene partner and pal on the Vancouver set. "I play golf with her husband and we've run in the same circles for years."

In "Prelude To A Kiss," the season finale airing Saturday, March 29, at 9:00 p.m. EST, Wagner's character will be back to further pursue Abigail while at the same time, delving deeper into the dangerous mystery. "My character gets beat up while he's at the crime scene by some masked men," Wagner reveals. "So it unfolds to be a real good versus evil situation."

With the fate of the town, as well as Abigail's family name, on the line, the evidence that Avery has collected becomes all-important. Who will triumph? Abigail pins her hope on the visiting Circuit Judge Jedidiah Black (James Brolin), but will she be able to continue living in the small town — let alone find love again — in the aftermath? "They leave the show with cliffhangers," Wagner says of the possibility of his return. "So hopefully Hallmark will pick it up for a second season!"

AMC Star Gets Gone!

JeffBransonZoeGone.jpg

While awaiting the birth of his first child this year, Jeff Branson (Jonathan, ALL MY CHILDREN) has been keeping himself plenty busy! This weekend, he'll turn up on Lifetime in the thriller, Zoe Gone. "It's about Jennifer, a 16-year-old girl who has a baby (Zoe) with the support of her boyfriend, but the pressure is too much for him and he runs away," Branson offers. "Her mother is a divorcée who's got a boyfriend, which is where I come in. He's the guy who wanted the woman, but not necessarily the child, but took on the role of helping to raise her anyway. But when his gal becomes a grandmother, that wasn't in his plan. There are some moments of him not understanding and lashing out a bit."

The teenager's struggle to acclimate to motherhood and the drama that entails is further complicated by an unexpected twist: Baby Zoe goes missing! "That kicks in the young lady's maternal instincts," Branson relates. "Then the storyline becomes about finding the baby and [Jennifer] proving to herself the mother that she can be."

While Branson is reluctant to give away much more, he did want to praise the film's young star, Sammi Hanratty. "She knew exactly what she wanted to do with the role, and she ran with it right from the beginning!" he enthuses. "I think [the problem of] high school girls having babies and not knowing what to do or not having the support that they thought they would is a relevant topic. The soap fans will relate to it."

Zoe Gone premieres on Saturday, March 29, at 8 p.m. EST on Lifetime. Then you can keep an eye out for Branson's upcoming guest appearances on TNT's PERCEPTION and CBS' NCIS.

Uh Oh! Liz Finds Britt's Confession!

LizReadsBrittsLetter.jpg

When will those Cassadines on GENERAL HOSPITAL learn that their dark, dank, gothic Wyndemere mansion and cheery celebrations just do not mix? Everyone who is anyone in Port Charles showed up at the island estate to pay homage to the bride and groom to-be, Britt and Nikolas. But just as the ghost of wives past (aka Emily) predicted, it ended in tragedy!

The evening began on a very strange note, with Luke gawking at Britt's fine form and complimenting Nik on his fiancé's "hot piece of ass." Nik was just a mouthful of martini away from a spit take after hearing that one and promptly kicked Luke out! Unaware that her future hubby was put out with the trash, Tracy went looking for him but instead found Lulu fussing over baby Ben. The resemblance between Lulu and the little tyke had not gone unnoticed, which was making it even harder for her to detach. Lulu was starting to wonder if her inability to have a child of her own was karmic payback for having an abortion when she was a teenager.

Brad, meanwhile, was being consumed by guilt for his part in Britt's "stolen embryo" saga. He so wanted to confess to Lucas but Obrecht was hovering like a vulture ready for the kill if he made that unwise choice. "One word out of you and you're finished," she warned. She meant it and he knew it! But Brad was the least of Obrecht and Britt's worries. Little did they know that an innocent expression of prepubescent love would be their downfall!

Earlier in the week, Britt had taken Brad's advice and wrote a letter of apology to Lulu, confessing the entire scheme that lead to Britt giving birth to Lulu and Dante's child! Although it was a good idea to get it off her chest, leaving the confession unattended in her office so Cameron could pick it up and make it into an origami heart for Emma wasn't the brightest move she's ever made!

Cameron gave Emma the heart at the party and Spencer, in a jealous rage, threw it on the floor and smashed it to smithereens. Then, of course, Elizabeth found it and realized it was Britt's handwritten confession that Ben was Lulu's son! She was just about to rush out and blab to Nikolas when Ric stopped her. He told her to tell Lulu and let her decide what she wanted to do about it! Whoever finds out first was beside the point. Any way you slice it, Britt's life is about to make an about-face!

And that's not ALL that happened Friday! Julian got a text from his financier, saying to meet him in the stables. Both Sonny and Alexis naturally assumed it was Ric. Well, they were wrong. It was Luke!

Next week, Alexis confronts Ric about his connection to Julian, Lulu stuns party guests with a wild assertion and Nikolas has some choice words for Britt! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Bruno Goes Bad!

ChrisBrunoSororitySurrogate.jpg

Chris Bruno, who played gay teacher Michael Delaney on ALL MY CHILDREN and the grown-up, arrogant version of Dennis Carrington Wheeler on ANOTHER WORLD, is returning to television this weekend in the world premiere of Lifetime's Sorority Surrogate. In the soapy tale, a broke college co-ed (THE L.A. COMPLEX's Cassie Steele) agrees to carry a couple's baby for money. But when the parents-to-be are in a fatal accent prior to the birth, a battle for the unborn child ensues between the surviving family members, including the would-be grandparents: A congresswoman (Mimi Kuzyk) and her dangerous second husband (Bruno).

"It was super fun torturing Cassie since she's pretty tough and has a good sense of humor about it," Bruno recalls, adding, "[And it's] really fun playing a bad guy because you have to apply psychology to justify actions, and I was a psych major in college."

Bruno's character will to stop at nothing to get what he wants, including getting physical. "I got to do a number of stunts," Bruno reveals, grinning. "Matthew Bennett (BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) and I had fun fighting each other and hanging out after work."

Will the pregnant sorority girl be ale to protect herself and the child that she's carrying? Tune in to the premiere of Sorority Surrogate on Saturday, March 22, at 8:00 p.m. EST on Lifetime to find out!

Larson Talks Y&R And First Kiss!

JillLarsonGal.jpg

Jill Larson (Opal, ALL MY CHILDREN) is returning to soaps for a two-day stint on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS beginning Monday, April 14. The actress will play Connie, a stage manager who'll try to keep things running smoothly during Chelsea's fashion show. The gig reunites her with Pine Valley pals Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea, Y&R; Annie, AMC) and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe, Y&R; Frankie, AMC).

"Connie's in the middle of all the action," Larson tells Soaps In Depth. "It's a real fun role and when it came along, I said, 'Oh, yeah!' I'm in touch with [Y&R headwriter] Jean Passanante via E-mail, so maybe that's what triggered the idea."

Larson's getting buzz not only for her upcoming Y&R gig, but also for her appearance in the short film First Kiss, which was directed by Tatia Pilieva. Larson was one of 20 artists cast in the indie project, which captures a series of first kisses among strangers.

"I met a man who was working for the clothing company [providing outfits for the film]," Larson recalls. "We got to talking, and I kept looking around wondering who did they call in for me to kiss? Then, I realized it was him! It was very sweet."

First Kiss has gone viral on the Web. Why? Larson believes it's because the film touches on the universal themes, fears and joys that are related to locking lips. "Sometimes when you kiss someone for the first time, you think, 'Do I like this person?' 'Should I get out now?' 'Are we going upstairs?''Do I like him?' 'Does he like me?' 'What are our children going to look like?'" she muses. "The film resonates with people because of its tenderness. It expresses things that we all feel, but don't have the courage to say anymore."

GH's Newest Hunk!

ZacharyGarred.jpg

GENERAL HOSPITAL has confirmed the casting of Australian actor Zachary Garred as Levi, and the actor himself has tweeted that he will first air on Thursday, April 3. Garred has soap experience, having appeared in the Aussie sudser HOME AND AWAY. GH is keeping mum on details regarding the character, but seeing as how the casting description for Levi described him as a New Age hippie type, and Maxie has been away on a spiritual retreat, it seems likely she picked herself up a guru of some sort!

The role of Levi is recurring, but Garred has tweeted that "so long as Port Charles will have me I will be happy to hang around!"

Nikolas and Emily's Unforgettable Romance!

EmilyNikolasGal.jpg

Nikolas and Emily's fairy tale love has long been labeled as one of GENERAL HOSPITAL's most romantic couples ever... and we're here to explain why!

As teenagers, they along with Lucky and Elizabeth called themselves the Four Musketeers. They were an inseparable foursome, coming to each other's rescue in times of need and diving head first into adventure when it arose. Through the years, those bonds only grew. Although Lucky and Liz became a couple when they were still kids, it wasn't until Emily learned that she had cancer that her relationship with Nikolas made a shift. At the time, she was with Zander. But wanting to spare him the heartbreak if she died, Emily asked Nikolas to pretend to be in a relationship with her. Nikolas agreed to the ruse. As he pushed her to fight more aggressively for her life, they began to fall for each other. Afraid of her feelings for him, she pushed him away, devastating him in the process.

The Cassadine empire was in trouble and the only way to restore the family fortune was for Nikolas marry a woman named Lydia. At the same time, Emily's health was on a rapid decline, and she decided to marry Zander from her hospital bed. Nik and Em's feelings continued to grow even though they were betrothed to others. One Halloween night, she finally confessed her love to Nik. Zander was devastated and tried to break them up a number of times, but his efforts failed. Fate wanted Emily with Nikolas.

When a fire broke out at the Port Charles Hotel, Zander was assumed dead. He later turned up alive, and Emily rushed into his arms. He begged her to run away with him. When she refused, he took her hostage. Nikolas rushed to her rescue, but his car swerved off the road and he was presumed dead. In reality, he had amnesia and was living with a woman named Mary who made him believe he was her husband. When a chance meeting brought Nikolas and Emily face to face, she vowed to help him recover his memory of the love they shared.

Furious that everyone kept the truth of his identity from him for so long, Nikolas turned his back on Emily and Lucky. Helena shipped him off to Shadybrook, where he was being heavily drugged. To be at his side, Emily had herself committed! Nikolas' memories came flooding back and they escaped

Emily's health took a turn for the worse and Nikolas looked desperately for a cure. After Nikolas was arrested for Helena's "murder," he and Emily married. But Emily knew deep down inside that Helena was still alive. To lure her out of hiding, she enlisted Mary's husband, Connor, to impersonate Nikolas. But in the process, Connor became obsessed with Emily and raped her. Afterwards, she found it impossible to get close to Nik, who was a dead ringer for her rapist. She found comfort with Sonny, while Nikolas turned to Courtney.

SeanKananGal.jpg

Port Charles won't have A.J. Quartermaine to kick around anymore! TV Guide is reporting that Sean Kanan has reached a mutual agreement with GENERAL HOSPITAL executive producer Frank Valentini to step down as A.J., and should last air in April. The actor admits that the lack of a romantic storyline for his character made him feel like A.J. didn't have much of a future on the soap.

Instead, Kanan is going to be returning to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL to reprise the role of Deacon, the schemer he also brought to sister soap THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS for a time. He will reportedly first air on the CBS sudser on Friday, June 13.

ABC Files Suit Against Prospect Park

ABCLogo.jpg

And the ABC/Prospect Park drama continues! Deadline reports that on March 7, ABC filed a countersuit against Prospect Park Networks (PPN) for failure to pay the licensing fees owed for the rights to ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE. "ABC sues to recover all unpaid Series Fees owned up to and through the date of the trial of this action as a result of Prospect Park's failure to pay in breach of the License Agreement," reads the filing.

In their Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing earlier this week, PPN claimed that they owed ABC $1.7 million, but the network says that the fees arrangement for multi-seasons series entitles them to more than $145 million, and that they were only paid a portion of the $4.5 million Season 1 fee owed for AMC, and the $4 million owed for OLTL.

Prospect Park Files For Bankruptcy

ProspectParkLogo.jpg

In a move that should come as no surprise, Prospect Park Networks has announced that it is filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. After ceasing production on the on-line versions of ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE last summer, PPN entered into a lawsuit with ABC regarding the rights to the soaps, but in a statement they declared "The Chapter 11 filing in no way impacts PPN's litigation against the American Broadcasting Companies, Inc." So it would seem this continuing drama isn't quite over yet.

Sonny's On The Hot Seat!

SonnyAvaDocks.jpg

Have you ever seen GENERAL HOSPITAL's Sonny nervous to the point of getting "the shakes"? Well, he was!

Sonny wasn't nervous about shooting and potentially killing A.J., a man he had been known publically to despise. And he wasn't nervous about there being a witness to the crime who also happened to be one of his greatest enemies. No. The only thing he was nervous about was losing Michael once he found out that he put a bullet in his bio dad's chest!

Means, motive and opportunity. Sonny had them all. Shawn worked diligently to secure him an alibi so, at least, "opportunity" could be taken off the table. There was always Duke to fall back on for that. Or maybe not! That would mean lying to Anna yet again. But there was also that not-so small problem that A.J. could ID Sonny as the shooter and A.J. was hanging on. Therefore, Shawn would have to "take care" of A.J. if he recovered. At least they had a little time to pull together a plan, what with Julian being in police custody, a factoid that made Sonny a tad giddy.

Meanwhile, there wasn't much anyone could do for an unconscious A.J. other than talk to him and hope that he could somehow hear them. Michael, Carly and Elizabeth all gave that a try but with no luck. When Sonny later showed up to check on Michael, Carly didn't mix words. She cut right to the chase, asking him, "You shot A.J., didn't you?"

Julian was locked up behind bars, just as Ava predicted he would be. But at least he had Carlos on "the outside" acting as his eyes and ears. He knew she was somehow behind the shooting and ordered Carlos to dig for the truth. Julian pled with Alexis to take on his case but, because she was also Sonny's attorney, there was the question of conflict of interest. That said, she assured him she'd get him another attorney. A good one. Namely, Ric!

Over at the Q mansion, Monica had called every dive and strip club in Port Charles looking for A.J., who had been missing since the break-in that left him certain someone was trying to kill him. Luke tried to divert the subject, callously saying he wanted to lighten the mood and announced he and Tracy were engaged. Monica's reaction was bewilderment, prompting her to ask Tracy, "Why? He's still after your money!" Luke went ballistic, calling her a serial cheater with a revolving bedroom door. "You may be Tracy's sister-in-law but you're a legendary slut!" he shouted. Tracy told him to back off, that he was being mean. "What on earth did they do to you at Miscavige?" she asked. That, Tracy, most certainly is the question!

Next week, Obrecht learns that Britt and Nikolas are getting married, Ric has something major to share with Liz, hand danger hovers in A.J.'s hospital room! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

Daytime Emmy Pre-Noms Announced!

EmmyTrophies.jpg

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, have announced the pre-nominees in the acting categories for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. Due to a rule change, the on-line versions of ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE were able to join GENERAL HOSPITAL, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and DAYS OF OUR LIVES in the broadcast categories; However, they only scored pre-nominations in the younger performer slots.

An on-line ballot featuring all entrants in each of the six categories were sent to judges who viewed clips of their work before selecting their top ten performers in each category. However, due to ties, Outstanding Lead Actress contains 12 performers and Supporting Actor has 13. The candidates who received the highest number of votes will now advance to the blue ribbon screening round set to begin on Wednesday, March 26. This will determine the final nominees and ultimate winner.

The final list on nominees will be announced on Thursday, May 1, but you can find the full list of all the pre-nominations after the break. Did your favorites make the cut? Who would you vote for?

A.J. Realizes "Ava Killed Connie!"

AJAva.jpg

If Ava and A.J. would just take a time-out, they'd realize they have more in common than their initials. We're talking, of course, about their love of vodka. When he's stressed, he downs it straight; she likes it shaken with an olive or two. Friday they were both swimming in it! Hearing from Carlos that he botched the "hit" on A.J. rattled her chain and, let's just say, she wasn't doing a happy dance. And when he said he accidentally left his gun behind at the Quartermaine mansion, she freaked. "Tell me again how you can yourself a professional!" she barked. He apologized, like that would calm her down. Although she put the operation on hold until she figured out what to do next, there was one thing she knew for sure... A.J. had to go!

Meanwhile, A.J. was filing a statement with Anna and Dante about the masked intruder who tried to kill him. He didn't know who it was but he was "damn sure Sonny sent him!" He was wrong. After taking another guzzle or two of vodka, he flashed back to the night Connie was killed and realized that she was alive when he left... and when Ava arrived. "It was her! Ava killed Connie!" he concluded. At least he was right about that!

Robin broke the news to Liz and Anna that she was leaving Port Charles. Neither of them understood how she could just up and leave her family again. "If you knew why I was going, not only would you support me, but you would be thrilled," she told Liz. Anna was a little harder to convince. Actually, she was rather miffed. Robin appealed to her maternal instinct, saying she was raised to do the right thing, even when it was something difficult. Anna was a puddle. And when Anna cries, we cry.

Next week, A.J. lets Ava know he's on to her, Robin says her goodbyes to Patrick and Emma, and Ric has a rather surprising disclosure for Liz! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

A Who's Who Guide For BEACON HILL!

BeaconHillCast.jpg

Next Wednesday, March 5, marks the launch of an exciting new Web soap, BEACON HILL! New media pioneer Crystal Chappell (Dani, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL; Olivia, GUIDING LIGHT, etc.) is part of the team behind the drama, which centers on two Boston families at opposite ends of the political spectrum.

With political rivalries, romances gone bad, blackmail and family dysfunction, BEACON HILL has all the makings of a must-see series! In anticipation of the show's premiere, Soaps In Depth chatted up some of the top players in the drama for the scoop!

Alicia Minshew (Sara Preston)
"Sara left the love of her life, Kate, for this reporting job, and the break-up was painful. She's now come back to Beacon Hill for a job and bumps into Kate, so it's reigniting feelings. There are issues with Sara and her grandfather, whom Kate is now working with, and she has a tumultuous relationship with her mother, who is a drinker. She's trying to be a good reporter but stay true to her family. Everything kind of gets mixed up and muddled!"

Sarah Brown (Katherine "Kate" Wesley)
"When Crystal sent me the script, I read all 12 episodes and called her immediately. I originally wanted to play the character of Sara -- I understood where she's coming from. But Katherine ended up being much more of a challenge. I love every bit of this."

Who Is Ric Lansing?

hearst pic.jpg

If Tuesday's GENERAL HOSPITAL gave you the impression that Ric Lansing is capable of doing a whole lot o' "no good," you'd be correct. Here's a refresher course in the man who will undoubtedly be stirring up some major trouble while in town.

From the moment Ric arrived in Port Charles, he had a strange obsession with Sonny. Although he offered Sonny his legal services time and time again, he was continually turned down. That rejection only served as fuel for the fire. One night, Ric found Carly drowning her sorrows at Jake's and saved her from downing a drink drugged by one of Faith Rosco's goons. Ric took Carly to a hotel that night and the following morning she woke up naked in bed with him! He used the moment to his advantage by blackmailing her into talking him up to Sonny.

A couple of months later, Carly discovered she was pregnant and, much to her relief, Ric was not the father. She told Sonny about being drugged and presumably raped by Ric. Sonny was furious and wanted to kill him. After being kidnapped and escaping, Ric told Sonny to meet him at Sonny's childhood vacation home in Martha's Vineyard. There, Ric revealed he was Sonny's half-brother and he blamed him for their mother choosing a life with Sonny over a life with Ric. Oh, and he did NOT have sex with Carly.

Determined to destroy Sonny one way or the other, Ric then plotted to blackmail Sonny's sister, Courtney, into marrying him even though he and Elizabeth had fallen in love. Jason got Courtney out of that mess but Ric's feelings for Liz had Faith seeing the green-eyed monster. Jealous that Liz was pregnant with Ric's baby, Faith pushed her down a flight of stairs, causing her to miscarry.

Ric erroneously blamed Sonny for the fall and plotted to take his and a pregnant Carly's baby to replace the one that Liz lost. To that end, he kidnapped Carly and chained her to a wall in a secret panic room in his and Liz's new house. To insure that Liz wouldn't get pregnant in the meantime, he put crushed birth control in Liz's food. One day Liz found that panic room but passed out before she could do anything about it. When she woke up, she alerted the police.

Alcazar's men kidnapped Carly and, to redeem himself in Liz's eyes, he helped find her. However, Liz served him with divorce papers anyway. Hoping to win her back, he convinced Scotty to make him the assistant D.A. She slowly warmed up to him again, and they remarried. Pregnant with Zander's child, they got Zander to sign away the rights. After Zander's death, Ric admitted to Liz that he could never give up on his vendetta against Sonny and they split.

After Alexis realized she had to tell Sonny that Kristina was his daughter, Ric proposed. Meanwhile Alexis became pregnant with Ric's child and, following a train wreck, Molly was born. To push Alexis' buttons, Sam seduced her mother's husband. Unaware that Alexis knew of his infidelity, he tried to make their marriage work when she was diagnosed with lung cancer. In the end, he cited her cancer as the reason she was unable to care for Molly and he was awarded custody.

Storms Heading Back To Work At GH!

KirstenStorms.jpg

Have you been wondering what GENERAL HOSPITAL's Maxie has been doing during her time away from Port Charles? Well, we're about to find out! Portrayer Kirsten Storms has been enjoying her maternity leave bonding with newborn daughter Harper Rose, but now it's time for the actress to get back to work. Storms recently posted to Twitter: "Just spoke with [executive producer] Frank Valentini. Very exited to return to work next week. I wonder what Maxie has been up to on her vacation... "

If Storms is reporting back to set next week, she should probably begin airing again in April. But as soon as we have a firm air date, we'll be sure to let you know!

Kristen's Back Today!

Ilene_Kristen3255.jpg

Today marks the GENERAL HOSPITAL return of Ilene Kristen as Ava's mother, Delia. The actress will be playing her iconic RYAN'S HOPE character in scenes airing for the rest of the week. "Tune in... my General Hospital shows will air Feb 25, 26, 27, 28," Kristen announced on Facebook.

During the actress' last visit to GH, Delia only got to interact with Sam and Silas -- but a long-awaited reunion with daughter Ava (played by Maura West) is ahead this time around! "It was fantastic," Kristen says of working alongside West. "Maura is fantastic. They were fun scenes. It was like playing tennis with somebody. I think both of us are pretty good tennis players!"

Kristen, who'd most recently played ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Roxy, adds that she "kind of knew" following her October appearance that Delia would be back again. "It wasn't a total surprise to me because of the way they wrote it the first time," she shares. "It led me to believe that they would be having me back. I didn't know when.

"It was just fabulous seeing [executive producer] Frank Valentini," she continues. "He's doing great. And Ron [Carlivati, headwriter] is doing great. I'm really happy for them."

After this week, is the door still open for a third return? "I would think so," says Kristen. "I would like it to be a little more than 'just hop over.' I think I could add something to the show."

Plus, Kristen would get to give Delia back to the fans who still approach her to this very day about their love for the character. "It's a tremendous compliment to me, because it was so long ago, for people to very specifically know a lot about Delia. People were fanatical about RYAN'S HOPE and Delia is such a part of their vocabulary. So it's great that I'm playing Delia on GENERAL HOSPITAL. It's odd and very ironic, yet it works."

Robin Breaks The Bad News!

PatrickRobinTouch.jpg

"How could she?!" you ask. "She," of course, is GENERAL HOSPITAL's Robin and yep, she's choosing to leave her husband and daughter for an undetermined length of time to bring Jason back to life. Patrick and Emma aren't too happy about it either! Can you blame them?

Jason's life was at stake and if it meant he would die without her help, then when that plane headed out of town the next day for unknown parts, Robin would be on it! She had to go, angry Patrick or not. Voices raised, faces became flushed, and tears poured. Emma didn't like what she saw and heard and wanted to know why Mommy and Daddy were fighting. Mac escorted the little lady to the kitchen for cocoa while Patrick told his wife that if she was serious about leaving, then she'd have to be the one to break the news to their daughter. Aware that she was about to break her little girl's heart, Robin fibbed right through her story, saying she was going to Africa to help sick people. Emma understandably didn't react well and ran out of the room crying. Mac, on the other hand, read between the lines. He thought there was more to the story... and he was right.

While Emma was crying her eyes out and Patrick was gritting his teeth, across town at the Metro Court, T.J. was planning on an evening of romance (and sex!) with Molly. They both wanted her first time to be special, but maybe he should have thought of hooking up with her somewhere other than the busiest place in town where everyone knows them! He tried to be discreet, but the MC lobby had foot traffic like it was Grand Central Station. Olivia got him to admit what he was up to and she had one of "those" talks with him. When Molly showed up shortly thereafter, they pushed the elevator button to go up to their room and shared a steamy kiss... unaware that Rafe was watching and figured out what was going on!

Father's Day came four months early in Port Charles. Michael and Kiki turned to their Dads for relationship advice, and both Sonny and Silas sort of said the same thing -- suck it up and apologize! Even Sam had a tender Daddy moment with Julian. Hoping that she'd give him a chance and let him into her life at least a little, he made a donation in her brother Danny's name to the foundation researching the disorder he had. Sam was stunned speechless and when she showed her appreciation for his thoughtfulness with a big hug, you could almost see the "Grinch's small heart grow three sizes!"

Next week, an unexpected twist in Robin and Patrick's life, Molly and T.J. find themselves in uncharted waters, and a masked assailant attacks A.J.! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

AMC Star Pens Emotional Memoir

Cady_McClain34126.jpg

Cady McClain (Dixie, ALL MY CHILDREN; Rosanna, AS THE WORLD TURNS) is self-publishing her memoir, titled Murdering My Youth. And the actress is having a contest in which fans can vote on what the final cover will be! Click here to pick your favorite!

"The book is a series of my memories about growing up in an alcoholic environment," McClain shares with Soaps In Depth. "It is also a raw, brutally honest look at what being in 'show business' can entail for a young girl and the extremely close relationship I had with my mother."

The two-time Emmy winner says that she's been told that the book should come with a warning. "There's a lot of violence in it," she allows.

What led McClain to join the list of soap stars who've chronicled their life stories? "I was inspired by a woman who asked me to be the keynote speaker at her writers' conference in Kansas City called Write The Dream," she says. "She had followed my blogs throughout the years and offered to help me self-publish this book. Her encouragement was a huge part of me letting this story out into the world. I hope it inspires others to tell their story or at least to not feel so alone with their experiences."

McClain will be signing copies of Murdering My Youth at the Write The Dream Conference in Kansas City, MO, on Friday, March 7. Click this link for more information. And as the keynote speaker, she will be encouraging her audience to find their voice via a method she calls "dreaming your way to a great, personal story. It's basically like taking a person's psyche and putting it in the structure of a fairy tale or myth."

McClain say that she loves to teach and interact with other creative minds. Curious what else has been going on in her head? Then check out Flip Fantasia, her trippy short film about four young urban men coping with the tragic after-effects of a wild night out in New York City, when it screens as at the Macon Film Festival. Catch it at the Cox Capital Theatre in Macon, GA, on Friday, February 28 a 4:14 p.m. or you can watch it on YouTube by clicking this link!

The Truth About Britt's Baby!

BrittBen.jpg

Some newer viewers — and even a few longtime ones — have been asking questions regarding the paternity of GENERAL HOSPITAL's Ben, so we figured we'd help folks remember how this all went down!

First, the facts: Ben is not the son of Dante and Britt, no matter what the devious doc is telling people! The baby is actually Dante and Lulu's child. As of now, the only people who actually know that are Britt, Obrecht and Brad.

It just so happened that when Britt needed a baby in order to land Patrick, Dante and Lulu were attempting to have one via their surrogate, Maxie. That, you may recall, didn't end particularly well, as Maxie miscarried their child and then got pregnant with Spinelli's baby!

Britt, however, had better luck. She got a baby and — at least briefly — the guy. But from the beginning, smart viewers suspected that she'd stolen one of Dante and Lulu's fertilized embryos... and they were right!

With a little help from Brad, Britt managed to impregnate herself with Dante and Lulu's baby. But as of right now, what everyone believes is that Britt only used Dante's sperm sample. After all, you'll recall that Dante and his wife are under the mistaken impression that their remaining embryos were destroyed.

So while Dante now knows that he's Ben's father, there's still a major bombshell waiting to explode. How will Nikolas react when he finds out that Britt's "confession" was really just another in a string of deceptions?

Valentine's Day In Port Charles!

DukeAnnahug.jpg

Nothing says Happy Valentine's Day like a lively volley of back and forth bitch slapping! That's right, love was in the air for almost everyone in Port Charles. While GENERAL HOSPITAL's Duke was trying desperately to make up with Anna, Sonny was charming Olivia with a diamond necklace, Ava was seducing Morgan, Nikolas was preparing to propose marriage and Molly and T.J. agreed that they were ready for "that," Britt and Elizabeth were exchanging threats and handprints on the other's cheek!

The day began with Duke showing up at Anna's office with a gentle smile and huge red roses. But to his surprise he was greeted not with a "thank you" but with a look of absolute annoyance that he was to make amends. Anna had it locked in her head that as long as he worked for Sonny, their relationship was at an impasse. As she saw it, she couldn't be with a man who was a criminal by choice. He'd be happy to walk away from Sonny once he knew they were safe from Julian's threat, but not until.

"The Jeromes have to be vanquished and then we can go back to our regular lives where you risks life and limb and I wanders aimlessly around the streets looking for employment," Duke snapped. It wasn't until he asked if she was willing to lose what they had that she began to soften. He didn't let go of her during the 20 years he was captive in a Turkish prison and he wasn't going to let her go now. Tears rolled down Anna's face and she kissed him. She couldn't turn him away either.

Liz arrived at Wyndemere to talk to Britt, who knew something ugly was about to happen. Through a fake smile and condescending tone, Liz returned Ben's hairbrush, saying it must have accidently fallen in her purse. With a triumphant grin plastered on her porcelain face, Liz said, "Just like, accidentally, the other day, I picked up Dante's water bottle and then I accidentally took a hair from Ben's hairbrush and took it to the lab. And then I accidentally had it tested against Dante's DNA. And then... I accidentally read the test results." But Britt could dish it out as good as she was forced to take it, even calling Liz a lying, cheating whore! With that, Liz slapped her. Then Britt tested her by daring her to do it again. So Liz did! And Britt slapped her back!

Nikolas and Spencer brought V Day gifts to Dante and Lulu. Thanks to Spencer's overactive mouth, he let it slip that Nikolas bought Britt a ring. At first Lulu was surprised that he was going to propose to Britt, but then Nik not only assured her that he loved Britt, he even told her why. Lulu approved. When the two Cassadine men returned home, Britt was still rattled by her encounter with Liz and was prepared to tell him the truth about little Ben.

While, Molly and T.J. were profess sing their love and agreeing their first time had to be safe and special, Ava was handing over a flash drive to Sonny that had all of Julian's secrets. Morgan was impressed, Sonny not so much. He wanted to wait until the info checked out before passing judgment on Ava. But until that was done, he insisted Morgan treat Ava "like the enemy she is." Morgan agreed to that for all of two and a half minutes!

Next week, Franco fights for his life, Patrick learns the truth from Robin and Liz makes a move! Don't forget: 2:00 ET and 1:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!

After all, she's playing that vivacious, popular girl that everyone wanted to be — with one unique exception: She's sharing the hallways with aliens! "It's raw, edgy and dark." Hall previews.

Emily's Coming Back!

Natalia.jpg
