Is "The Britch" returning to Port Charles? Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt Westbourne) took to Twitter and posted a pair of cryptic photos of herself on the "General Hospital" set on Friday, January 28. In one shot she's standing on the docks. In another she's joking around in a in hospital bed -- and there's a script tucked beneath her.
As we get closer to daytime's biggest night, taking place on Sunday, May 1, the industry is abuzz today over which actors were submitted for a pre-nomination for the "The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards," presented by The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). With at least two actors per show for each category (exception being Supporting Actress) several of daytime television's biggest and brightest stars are looking to vie for the coveted trophy that celebrates their hard work during calendar year 2015.
Remember in 1998 when Carly (then played by Sarah Brown) stepped away from Michael's stroller for the tiniest of moments which led to his kidnapping by the hands of Tony Jones, who previously was led to believe Michael was his before Carly proclaimed the child to have been fathered by Jason? Fast forward to 2015, we find Sonny (Maurice Benard), seemingly in the Tony role, being kept away from his child by an all grown up Michael (Chad Duell), who tells his adopted father, "Step away from the stroller now" in this week's promo for ABC's "General Hospital."
As it gears up to broadcast its first major awards telecast with the "42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" on Sunday, April 26, Pop has released the Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. Competing this year for the coveted trophy is Freddie Smith as Sonny Kiriakis on "Days of our Lives," Bryan Craig as Morgan Corinthos and Tequan Richmond as TJ Ashford, respectively, on "General Hospital," and Max Ehrich as Fenmore Baldwin on "The Young and the Restless." Only Craig and Ehrich are repeat nominees this year.
ABC has confirmed that it will be recasting the contract role of Kiki Jerome on "General Hospital" with "The Young and the Restless" alum Hayley Erin (ex-Abby Newman). She is set to first air sometime in late February. Kristen Alderson, who originated the role, opted to leave when her contract was up earlier this month. She last airs in early February.
Fans of online series "Youthful Daze" will soon get a dose of "The Young and the Restless'" Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman), when she debuts in upcoming episodes as Nicole Wallace, the mother of resident bad boy Randy Milhouse (Reese Mishler). Scott's character is described as being "calculated and waspy."
It’s been said that the remaining four network television soaps are like all-star sports teams, consisting of the best of the best of actors in the daytime community. But the latest casting announcement for the online soap opera “Youthful Daze” shoots it right up into the Big Leagues: Trevor St. John (ex-Todd Manning/Victor Lord, “One Life to Live”), Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos, “General Hospital”), Chrishell Stuase (Jordan Ridgeway, “Days of our Lives;” ex-Amanda Dillon, “All My Children”) and Rick Hearst (Ric Lansing, “GH;” ex-Whip Jones, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) have joined the series, which already boasts a cast with a couple of recognizable names in the industry!
