Since joining the cast of ABC's "General Hospital" in the recurring role of Spencer Cassadine last year, 8-year-old Nicolas Bechtel has literally stolen the spotlight from some of the veteran cast with his one liners and spot on delivery. Will he do the same when he appears on FOX's newest comedy "Red Band Society" this fall? Earlier this week Bechtel tweeted, "Atlanta has been great. Working on @RedBandSociety was awesome. Almost time to head back to LA." Since then fans have wondered what role he'll end up playing on the Steven Spielberg executive produced series and Soap Opera Network has the scoop!
Last week "General Hospital" executive producer Frank Valentini revealed that there will be plenty of villains hanging around the denizens of Port Charles this fall and he wasn't kidding. While a show rep issued a "no comment" when contacted by Soap Opera Network, actress Robin Mattson announced on her Facebook page yesterday that she is returning to the daytime soap as Heather Webber in the near future. "Heather is returning to GH soon!" read Mattson's Facebook posting. Fans last saw Heather in February, when she was carted off to jail.

As they celebrated their first anniversary as hosts of "Soap Box with Lilly & Martha" on Thursday, August 21, former daytime soap stars Lilly Melgar ("General Hospital") and Martha Madison ("Days of our Lives") had soap journalist Michael Maloney, talent manager Michael Bruno and online soap reporter Michael Fairman on as guests as they discussed the week's biggest soap opera news. No story was bigger this past week than the news of Justin Hartley ("Passions," "Revenge," "Mistresses") returning to daytime television to portray a recast Adam Newman on CBS' "The Young and the Restless." According to Bruno, however, there was a chance that the role could have gone to Hartley's former "Smallville" co-star Tom Welling, "Sex and the City's" Jason Lewis or "Queer as Folk's'" Gale Harold.
On Sundays all-new edition of "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, the show provides an update on the status of former "General Hospital" and "The Bold and the Beautiful" star Jack Wagner.

On the Thursday, August 21 episode of ABC's "General Hospital," Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo) returned from her long trip away from Port Charles after looking to clear her head following the death of her son, Gabriel, with Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson). Upon her return, Sabrina is shocked to learn that for much of the time she had been gone Patrick knew who ran them off the road and caused their son's death. She also learns that her best friend Felix Dubois (Marc Anthony Samuel) knew as well. Neither Patrick or Felix opted to call her to tell her because they feared what it would do to her mental state, as noted by Castillo in Soap Opera Network's recent interview with the actress.
