AMC Legend Passes Away


The daytime world has lost one of its true legends. David Canary (Adam/Stuart, ALL MY CHILDREN) passed away of natural causes at the age of 77 on November 16 at The Greens at Cannondale in Wilton, Connecticut.

Canary had a career that spanned stage and screen, but daytime audiences remember him best as Pine Valley twins Adam and Stuart Chandler, roles he played for over a quarter of a century. Over those years, the actor earned 16 Daytime Emmy nominations and took home five for Outstanding Actor.

A private funeral service is being held for immediate family, but a memorial tribute is planned for a date yet to be determined. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the David Canary Memorial Fund at the Alzheimer's Association. You can find that link by clicking here.

Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time.

GH Star's New Movie!


Ryan Paevey (Nathan) is doing a little moonlighting from GENERAL HOSPITAL in the upcoming Hallmark Channel movie Unleashing Mr. Darcy! Naturally the actor will be playing another dashing romantic lead, but this time instead of a cop, Paevey will be portraying a billionaire dog breeder!

Based on the book by Teri Wilson, Unleashing Mr. Darcy is the story of a young woman who thinks the only companion she needs is her dog, but then she meets the charming dog breeder Donovan Darcy. Will he be the man to change her mind?

Actress Frances Fisher (Suzette, GUIDING LIGHT) posted a photo of herself and on-screen "nephew" Paevey on Twitter, and the author herself has taken to social media herself to sing the actor's praises. "Wait until you see Mr. Darcy in his tuxedo!" Wilson tweeted. "Oh my gosh, melt."

The film was shooting in Canada last week, and seems likely to air around Valentine's Day, which would be appropriate. And if you need any more incentive to check it out, author Wilson also tweeted: "I'm watching them shoot the wet Mr. Darcy scene, in which he climbs out of the pool. (Just about every woman on set has thanked me for writing it.) So things are going pretty great here..."

Thompson Says Good-Bye To GH


While we still don't know the airdate for the episode in which Jason will bid farewell to Port Charles, portrayer Jason Thompson has revealed that last Friday, November 20, was his last day on the GENERAL HOSPITAL set.

"Yesterday morning. Nov 20th. 5:55 am," he posted on Instagram alongside a video of a peaceful sunrise. "It was my birthday and also my last day of playing Patrick Drake on GH after 10 years. It was a long, emotional, exhausting, thrilling at time overwhelming day, and I am so grateful for every one of those moments.

"Change can be exciting and scary all at once," he continued. "Shake it up... see what comes out. Thank you for the birthday wishes. Thank you for the well wishes. See you soon."

Whether we'll see him soon on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS if the rumor he's the new Billy Abbott pans out, or if we'll see him on another soap or primetime series, only time will tell. One thing's for sure, we'll let you know what's next for the actor as soon as we know!

Cassadine Island Chaos!


You have to give it to Helena Cassadine: The woman knows how to entertain guests. Sure, she could have provided some snacks and beverages for Jason, Nikolas, Sam and Elizabeth, given how far they'd come to see her. But she was dressed for the occasion in those cute pajamas, and she certainly put on quite a show.

Pressed for answers, Helena warned Jason that he might not like everything he was about to hear, but he was determined to have answers. And with each word Helena spoke, you could see Liz and Nikolas cringing in fear that his not-so-beloved granny might reveal their complicity in keeping Jason in the dark about his identity!

Helena took great pleasure in taunting her guests. And of course, this being Helena, she got in more catty remarks than the BIG BROTHER Zingbot. "If your taste runs to the insipid," she quipped to Jason, "it's easy to see how you could fall for Elizabeth all over again." And lest you think Sam got off easy, Helena cursed her! That's right, the old broad broke out the word-for-word curse she'd placed on Luke and Laura back in the day!

By hour's end, Helena's guests had become bored with her party tricks and demanded that she cough up answers. Elizabeth reminded everyone that Helena had done the whole mind-wipe thing before with Lucky. And so, as the episode closed, we were left with one big question hanging in the air: Did Helena know how to restore Jason's memory? Actually make that two questions, because we were also left wondering if, even if she could, she actually would!

In other news, Morgan took Kiki to a remote (read: cellphone unfriendly) cabin where he worked hard to prevent her from finding out what was going on with Franco back in Port Charles. What Morgan didn't know was that Nina had convinced her brother to check into the facts surrounding Carly's accident. Armed with proof that Kiki, not Franco, had caused the accident, the hunt was on for her and Morgan. And as Morgan's behavior became increasingly erratic -- he even suggested they might spend the winter there -- Kiki began to suspect all might not be right in their world. That was definitely confirmed when a sound outside prompted the tempermental hunk to grab a gun and vow to protect Kiki! Epiphany took Sonny to the gym for a therapy session and some tough love.

So as we head into the weekend, let's do some wild speculation, shall we? Do you think Helena might be able to restore Jason's memory? Do you think she will? Sound off below with your comments about this week's episodes and remember to join us at @soapsindepthabc at 3 p.m. EST as we live-tweet each episode!

The Evolution Of Dillon


In his desperation to win Lulu away from Dante, Dillon blew up his entire life. Now he's lost the girl, the movie and his mojo. In the new issue of Soaps In Depth, portrayer Robert Palmer Watkins considers where his character can go from here.

"Dillon's very up in the air," Watkins teases. "He's just not inspired to do the movie anymore, because it was basically about Lulu and now that's all in shambles. We finally had a love scene and Lulu cut it off. If that story is over, I hope they let Dillon be single for a while. If he was that in love with Lulu, he needs some time to get over her... But at the same time, love stories are interesting!"

While Dillon "definitely feels guilty" about playing the sizzle reel that exposed Valerie and Dante's affair, Watkins isn't complaining. "It's been a shift in his character," he explains. "He's no longer just the good guy, which I'm enjoying. You don't just want to play the good guy, all the time. That gets boring, so I'm glad he was the one who did it. We'll see what happens..."

Return To THE BAY


THE BAY, the wickedly entertaining Web series that took home this year's Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding New Approaches -- Drama Series, is returning with eight new episodes for what's sure to become a December to remember.

Picking up where the story left off nearly a year ago, Bay City socialite Sara Garrett (Mary Beth Evans, Kayla, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Katherine, GENERAL HOSPITAL) remains behind bars and facing murder charges while her son, Peter, is rebounding from his emotional break-up with his Mrs. Robinson (aka Janice; played by Lilly Melgar, ex-Lily, GH) by getting all hot and bothered with his other super hot ex, Vivian. What he doesn't know is that Janice has just been brutally raped and is now being verbally assaulted by Lianna (Jade Harlow; ex-Sheryl, DAYS), who found out about their affair. Making matters worse, Sara's conniving husband, Steve Jensen (Matthew Ashford, ex-Jack, DAYS; ex-Tom, GH) is scheming to get his hands on her money while a volatile John Blackwell (Ronn Moss, ex-Ridge, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) is plotting to take down the Garretts in an even darker way.

Can Sara get released in time to save her family AND her fortune? The answers are coming beginning with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, December 1, and another on Thursday, December 3. The rest of the season will be unveiled every Tuesday and Thursday through December 22. For a sneak peak, check out the promo here.

Nathaniel Marston Passes Away


Nathaniel Marston (Al, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) has passed away at the age of 40 from injuries suffered during an automobile accident. His mother, Elizabeth Jackson, broke the news on Facebook.

"Dear family and friends," she wrote, "it is with a heavy heart that I share this devastating news. My beloved and cherished son, Nathaniel Marston, who was putting up the good fight until last night, was not able to continue due to the traumatic and devastating nature of his injuries. Nathaniel passed away peacefully as I held him in my arms."

If Marston had survived the surgeries, his quality of life would have drastically changed. "He would have required a ventilator and would never have been able to utter one more word and would have been sentenced to life as a quadriplegic," Jackson wrote. "A condition that Nate would never have been able to tolerate. By God's love and mercy, Nathaniel was spared this living hell and has traveled on to be with God, his cherished grandmother Mary Jackson, grandfather John Jackson and my sister, his Aunt Nora."

Memorial services are planned for New York City, Kauai, Hawaii, and Gerlach, Nevada. Our thoughts are with his loved ones as this difficult time.

Marston Scheduled For Another Surgery Today


According to his mother, Elizabeth Jackson, Nathaniel Marston (Al/Michael, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) is scheduled for another surgery later today, pending the results of a brain scan. There is a fluid build-up in his skull due to the brain shearing injury, and his doctors want to alleviate the pressure by drilling two small holes in his skull. Yet because Marston has been much more alert the past few days than he had been, "[the doctors] will perform a brain scan on Wednesday prior to surgery to see if the fluid has begun to dissipate on its own," wrote Jackson. "If, in fact, the fluid is dissipating on its own, surgery will be cancelled... So let's continue to pray that this surgery will not be necessary."

Jackson went on to detail several other "miracles" that the family has been given in the days since her son's accident, starting with how having been thrown from the cab of his pickup truck actually saved Marston's life. "Had he stayed inside, he would have been taken out in a million pieces," she explained. "The truck looks like it went through a crusher. This did not happen, and Nathaniel does not have a visible cut or bruise on his face, hands or feet. He has a few minor abrasions on his legs. How does this happen to a man who went through a windshield? God's will and love, that's how."

Marston's Mother Hoping For A Miracle


As Nathaniel Marston (Al/Michael, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) continues to fight for his life following the October 30 car accident near Reno, NV, that almost killed him, his mother, Elizabeth Jackson, continues to ask her son's family, friends and fans to keep sending their prayers, love and support.

In a Facebook update posted last Thursday, Jackson wrote that Marston's heart had stopped twice and that his doctors were planning to install a pacemaker "to help regulate his heartbeat so it is more consistent. For now, an external pacemaker has been placed on his chest, and it is helping."

Even more devastating, Jackson added that her son's doctor "shared with me that the most likely prognosis is that Nathaniel will live out his life as a quadriplegic."

Gaskill Is CASTLE Bound!


In "Cool Boys," the Monday, November 9, episode of ABC's CASTLE, Brian Gaskill has traded in the wings he was awarded as angel Rafe on PORT CHARLES for a very different kind of role. He's appearing as a dangerous man who heads up a heist crew. "He has a big scene with both Nathan Fillion [Joey, ONE LIFE TO LIVE] and Adam Baldwin [THE LAST SHIP], who is returning as Detective Ethan Slaughter [from season four], that you do not want to miss," previews showrunner Terence Paul Winter.

For Gaskill, reuniting with Fillion, whom he'd met while they were both soap stars, was an intriguing prospect. "I'd done stuff back with him in the 90s for ABC Daytime," Gaskill reveals. "He was Joey [on ONE LIFE TO LIVE] when I was Bobby [on ALL MY CHILDREN]."

However, Winter says their interaction on CASTLE might leave an even bigger impression. "I think it's something that people will be YouTubing and watching over and over and over again," he suggests. "I don't want to risk spoiling it by saying more, but it's wonderful!"

During the week leading up to shooting, Gaskill enjoyed spending time on set. "You know, when you're on the air eight seasons, you're not just successful, you're probably good people," he surmises of the CASTLE crew. "Not only were the costume people great, but also, they immediately sent me down to production where they were shooting and brought me to set to meet with the hair and makeup people. I don't think I've ever been on the primetime show where they took that kind of time with a guest star. It was great."

Tune in to catch him at 10:00 p.m. EST. For more about the episode, don't miss the CASTLE Primetime Preview feature in next week's ABC issue of Soaps In Depth.

New Details About Marston's Accident


Details have now emerged about the car crash that critically injured Nathaniel Marston (Al/Michael, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) over the weekend. According to a press release issued via the actor's Web site, a preliminary investigation has led police to believe that a fatigued Marston fell asleep while driving. Authorities say that neither drugs nor alcohol were a factor. "The vehicle drifted into the opposite lane, and it is believed that when Marston awoke, he over-corrected, causing his pickup truck to flip over several times," reads the statement. Because Marston was not wearing a seatbelt, "he was ejected through the windshield and, upon landing, crushed several vertebrae in his neck and back. Remarkably, he suffered no head trauma."

Initially, doctors believed that if Marston survived, he would be paralyzed from the neck down and not be able to breathe on his own. But after a successful first surgery, his prognosis has "brightened considerably. Marston regained consciousness for a short while, understood the situation and was clear-headed enough to make medical decisions for himself. There will be more surgeries in the near future, but it is now believed that with significant physical therapy, the actor should be able to regain function of his upper body." However, it is too soon to tell if or when he will ever be able to walk again.

In her latest Facebook update, Marston's mother, Elizabeth Jackson, revealed that he was scheduled for another surgery this afternoon. "His last surgery, to alleviate pressure on the spine, went very well, and Nate is taking some breaths on his own," she wrote. "Today, doctors will do their best to repair breaks in his neck and stabilize his neck. Thank you again for your love, prayers and support. I will update everyone as soon as I have more news. Warm wishes from me, my family and Nathaniel."

If fans would like to send Marston cards and messages of support, they can do so at: Nathaniel Marston, c/o Elizabeth Jackson, PO Box 175, Gerlach, NV 89412.

Marston Recovering From Surgery


UPDATE: Marston's mother recently posted another update on Facebook, writing: "Good news! Nathaniel opened his eyes and was responsive for the first time since yesterday's surgery. Your prayers, love and positive thoughts are working. God is good and he has a big mission for Nathaniel. He is scheduled for another surgery on Wednesday, November 4. Please continue to cover him with prayers, love and light. Thank you! Your love and support is much appreciated by me, our family and Nathaniel. Sending all of you love and light."

According to the latest Facebook update from his mother, Elizabeth Jackson, daytime grad Nathaniel Marston (Al/Michael, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Eddie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) underwent a successful surgery yesterday afternoon and is recovering in a Reno, NV, hospital.

"Dear friends and family of Nathaniel Marston," she wrote. "My beloved son, Nathaniel, made it through today's surgery and his doctors are pleased with the result. He is still in critical condition but now we have hope. Please continue to keep Nathaniel in your thoughts and prayers, asking God for Nathaniel's complete and full recovery. I will continue to post as I have news. Thank you again for your positive thoughts and prayers which have, and are, making a difference. Sending peace, love and light out to all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."

As previously reported, Marston was involved in a car accident on October 30 that left him in critical condition and on life support.

Soap Alum Fights For His Life


UPDATE: In a post made earlier today, Jackson wrote that, "Nate was able to decide and express very clearly this morning that he is not going to give up without a fight. He is going into surgery at 3:00 this afternoon. The goal is to get him breathing on his own. The doctor said that there is a good chance that he will recover the use of upper body movement and a slim chance that he will walk again. Recovery will take 2 or more years, but where there is life there is hope. Nate has never walked away from a fight and he is determined to win this one. Please pray for Nate's full and complete recovery. Both Nate and I appreciate your love prayers and support."

On Friday, October 30, ONE LIFE TO LIVE alum Nathaniel Marston (Al/Michael) was involved in a horrific car accident near Reno, NV, and the actor is now on life support in the intensive care unit. According to several Facebook posts made by his mother, Elizabeth Jackson, over the weekend, Marston's neck and back were broken, as were all of his ribs and a shoulder. He suffered several internal injuries as well, including a collapsed lung. "In all likelihood, if he lives, he will be paralyzed from the neck down and will not breathe without a ventilator machine," she wrote. "Oh my God, please give me strength."

Although Marston has had problems with drugs in the past, Jackson noted that her son wasn't under the influence at the time of the accident. "In case the rumor mill gets going, Nate was sober, according to cops," she wrote.

Our thoughts are with Marston's family, and we hope the actor makes a full recovery.

Thompson Confirms GH Exit!


After weeks of speculation, Jason Thompson (Patrick) took to Instagram Friday to finally confirm his exit from GENERAL HOSPITAL.

"I have made the difficult decision to bid farewell to a character I love playing for over 10 years," Thompson posted late Friday afternoon. "It was not an easy decision but I felt like it's time to hang up Doctor Drake's white coat and scrubs.

"I want to thank [executive producer] Frank Valentini, [ABC executive vice-president] Vicki Dummer and [ABC president] Paul Lee for their support and appreciate their understanding," he continued. "To everyone at ABC, the GH crew, producers, writers, directors, my beloved classmates and those in my home away from home, the makeup room, I can't possibly begin to tell you what you mean to me.

"Most importantly I would like to thank the fans," he concluded. "GH changed my life and I have you to thank for that. I am forever grateful for your love and support and for embracing me and this character all these years. I mean these words from the bottom of my heart: GH is family to me, and I'll miss all of you dearly."

Speculation was already flying fast and furious when news broke that Kimberly McCullough (Robin) was returning to GH, leading fans to suspect she was being used to usher Thompson's character off the canvas. And now, the actor has made it official.

"So grateful for all your love," Thompson added via twitter. "It's a crazy thing, believe me. But truly... Thank you! And we still have great story to tell...hold on!"

"It was difficult for me when I read that [Anna was going to kill Carlos], because I've always felt like Anna is someone who does the right thing," Finola Hughes says of her alter ego's decision. "I think Anna stands for the good, and she stands for the Every Man. But suddenly, here she was making what was probably not the best judgment call."

More Kevin, Please!


Dr. Kevin Collins, you're a sight for sore eyes, and it's so very nice to see you! GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers may have been wondering were the heck Kevin has been, because if there's one place in the good old U.S. of A. that needs a qualified psychiatrist, it's Port Charles, NY! Anna's session with him today was a good start, but fans are dying to know: Is Kevin here to stay?

"There is a second meeting that we have scheduled, where Anna shows up and I throw her a curve ball, which is pretty significant, I have to say," Jon Lindstrom teases. "I catch her at a moment when she can't help but go along with it. I believe that she's really too far gone to deal with this with a simple conversation."

Lindstrom is well aware of the fans' support and would like to continue to make them happy by popping in and out GH more often. "To be honest, I have no idea [if that's the plan]," he confesses. "We'll just have to see."

Meet GH's New Josslyn!


Carly's daughter, Josslyn, returns to GENERAL HOSPITAL today after an extended vacation visiting her father Jax -- with daytime newcomer Eden McCoy taking over the role from Hannah Nordberg.

"I still can't believe it but please watch me as Josslyn Jacks in my first episode of General Hospital on ABC Wednesday," the teenager announced in a Facebook post on Monday night. "Very grateful to be a part of this amazing cast and show. Much more to come -- I love my GH family already."

Although there's been no comment from GH regarding the recast, Nordberg has been quite busy in the months that she's been absent from the soap. She'll be playing Dolly Parton's best friend in the upcoming NBC movie Coat Of Many Colors (airing in early December) and has a meaty role in the HBO Salem witch trial pilot, THE DEVIL YOU MAY KNOW, where she plays Betty Parris, one of the young girls who accused other villagers of witchcraft.

As for McCoy, she began her career as a model in national commercials and print campaign -- she can currently be seen in the back-to-school campaign for STAPLES -- and has performed in two productions with the Los Angeles Opera. This summer, the 12-year-old appeared in a print ad celebrating Disneyland's 60th anniversary. Welcome to the GH family, Eden!

GH Friday Recap: Trapped At Wyndemere!


Hayden recalled overhearing Nikolas say that he tried to have her killed. The odd thing was, it didn't evoke a worried frown on her pretty little face; she smirked! When Nikolas asked what was up, she answered, "I've got big plans for you." Uh, huh. Hey, Nik, if you know what's good for you, call your guards!

Jake and Sam spent time hanging out at Kelly's, talking about his desire to find out his true identity as a wedding gift for Liz. They concluded that their best leads were Nikolas and Hayden, who, as luck would have it, walked into the diner carrying numerous bags after an apparent shopping spree. Sam pointed out to Jake that since Hayden and Nikolas were at Kelly's, that meant they weren't at Wyndemere. Now was the perfect time to for them to snoop through the gothic castle for clues, Scooby and Shaggy-like!

After Jake and Sam left, Hayden revealed to Nik that she couldn't resist wearing a sexy teddy out of the store. After one quick flash of Hayden's cleavage and her signature "if you want this, come and get it" look, Nik paid the check, and they were out the door faster than you can say, "What's for dessert?"

Like the two super sleuths they are, Sam and Jake dodged the Wyndemere security system, guards and house staff to sneak into the main house. They were successfully downloading the contents of Nikolas' computer onto a flash drive when they heard commotion outside in the corridor. It was Nikolas and Hayden, who were feeling frisky. Scrambling for a place to hide, Jake and Sam, climbed out the window and onto a second floor balcony. While Nikolas and Hayden shared a hot kiss and prepared to do the deed on a vacant desktop, Jake and Sam were trapped outside!

Liz was counting the days till she was a bride. As she slipped on a wedding veil, she looked in the mirror and said in disbelief, "This is really happening. Jason and I are getting married." That peaceful smile was about to be wiped off her face because there was a knock at the door. It was Laura. "As somebody who cares about you, I think you're making a terrible mistake," she told her former daughter-in-law. Laura urged Liz to come clean about the secret of Jake's identity, but Liz had her own logic that also had some validity. Laura suggested a psychiatrist for Little Jake, who must be traumatized after being held captive for four years. "Jake is Little Jake's father, and I am his mother, and we are giving our son everything he needs," Liz said firmly... unaware that her young son heard every word!

Assuming that the pregnancy test Nathan found was Valerie's, Dante came down hard on her. She, like the Spencer she is, fought back, blasting him for the accusation. It shouldn't come as a surprise that Dillon heard the conversation. Meanwhile on the Haunted Star, Maxie told Lulu that Dillon was in love with her. Just then, Dillon arrived, armed with what he believed to be the possibility that Valerie was pregnant with Dante's child. He planned on making Lulu aware of her husband's infidelity but, before he could say anything, Lulu told him that she knew he was in love with her. He wanted to prove to her that he -- not Dante -- was the man she deserved. To do so, he pulled her into a passionate kiss!

Monday on GH, Lulu reacts to Dillon's pass, Nina shows Franco a side of her he's never seen, and Jake and Sam attempt an escape from Wyndemere? ! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!
