“General Hospital’s” Emme Rylan (Lulu Spencer) is no stranger to heartbreaking baby loss storylines. As “Guiding Light’s” Lizzie Spaulding, she had to play out the emotional arc in which Lizzie believed her daughter, Sarah, had died in a car accident. And while Rylan is proud of the work she was able to bring as her Springfield alter ego, she’s of the opinion that now having two children of her own (Jackson, 4, and Levi, 2) is making her current baby-loss storyline much stronger.
Playboy may have found popularity by publishing risqué photos of women, but as the old excuse goes, some people actually read it “for the articles.” And those who picked up the March 2014 issue of the popular mag for reading purposes only were in for a lovely daytime related surprise: The publication stripped down popular primetime series made predominately for a male audience and declares they’re exactly like “The Bold and the Beautiful,” The Young and the Restless,” “General Hospital,” and “Days of our Lives” — with a manly twist.
Good news Kirsten Storms fans: The actress will be back filming as “General Hospital’s” Maxie Jones very soon!
Storms, who is currently on maternity leave enjoying the new daughter she shares with husband Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny Zacchara), took to Twitter to announce that she’ll be back to work next week!
“Just spoke with [executive producer] @valentinifrak,” she wrote. “Very excited to return to work next week. I wonder what Maxie has been up to on her vacation…”
Storms gave birth to baby Harper Rose on January 7 of this year. She is the couple’s first child together.
Former “The Young and the Restless” star Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Newman) repeatedly told reporters that she was walking away from her popular daytime role to pursue other projects, and rumors are swirling that her next gig might be over at “General Hospital!”
Long gone but never forgotten characters are popping up left and right on ABC’s “General Hospital,” leaving many fans wondering which fan favorite could be next. The recent reveal that Julian’s (William DeVry) henchmen, Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), is from Puerto Rico had many under the impression that he was related to Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) late wife, Lily Rivera (Lilly Melgar), which then lead fans to wonder if Melgar could be headed back to Port Charles!
Alas, the actress has gone on record saying the show has not contacted her to reprise the role — at least, not yet! But she’s very open to the possibility. “Never say never!” she tells Soap Opera Network with a sly smile about whether or not it would be feasible for Lily to have survived the infamous fiery car explosion of 1996.
Ever since it was announced that former “Knots Landing” actress Donna Mills is headed to “General Hospital,” tongues have been wagging regarding character details and a first airdate. And while the Illinois native has yet to reveal any details about her new alter ego, she has announced when fans can expect her to make her Port Charles debut!
