    Melissa Archer is not big enough or exciting enough for this announcement! It is probably a big return of a GH actor or actress. I would be surprised if it was someone else from OLTL.

    I hope it is Natalie and Liam …can”t you picture the fireworks in a scene where Natalie is protecting her man by verbally or physically going after Sonny…he wouldn’t know what hit him. If she was working at the PCPD she would drive Dante crazy. Laura would be great but I have almost given up hope of that happening. it would bew awesome to have Laura and Scotty back married to drive Luke crazy!!!Bring back Robert….Dani, Tea, Victor…

    Hi Ethel: What did U mean on Saturday when U said, ” Robin is already tapping” ? I was trying to read what U were replying to but I didn’t find anything consistent with your statement. I thought Robin was leaving the show, and U spoke in the present-tense, ” Robin is already tapping”. Then there was in (media print) stating, Robin had finished taping in early March.
    Please give me a heads up. Thank you!

    I think the whole Robin killing LET ALONE her funeral, is a HOAKS!!!! Who would take Robins body and have a convient….. BURNED UP BODY to store in her replacement? How would they get this burned up body in the hospital? And wasn’t that a LAB? Looks to me it had ‘one entrance’ and that was the entrance at the door in which Robin was speaking to Patrick, saying Good-bye. What back entrance is there to a Lab on (whatever floor) of the hospital this took place? Also, when did the people leave with Robin, because Patrick never left from in front of that door, and there is obviously ‘no back’ entrance to any lab, and how did they get Robin pass Patrick out the hospital (no back entrance) just as, how did they get a CONVIENT burnt up body into the hospital? I know its a soap, but it’s TOOOOOO far fletched for my taste…. I guess at some point “they” will ‘ fase out ‘ showing her and she will lay ‘ limbo ‘ in the kidnapped stage.
    I wrote you the best insight to your request and lost it somehow, while watching tv, and still have to redo it. Let me get off before I go to, ‘ Fade to Black ‘. lol Going to play the Mega Millions now.

    Bring them all back and more. Compromising a little on importing OLTL characters might mean higher ratings for GH and ensure its survival. Complaining about OLTL characters will be the least of our problems if GH is gone. At this point, there isn’t one whole couple from Llanview in Port Charles.

    Besides Jason and Sam (who seems depressed) or Dante and Lulu (when was the last time they were together?), what functioning couples are there in Port Charles (made worse by the loss of Robin)? Victor and Tea (Trevor St John and Florencia Lozano) ripping their clothes off each other would be an improvement. Almost everyone in Port Charles is either depressed, miserable, or a mental case.

    A good 1 David and so true. Had a good laugh too.

    Would’ve great if Alan was still alive and at Robin’s funeral. Not a dry eye in the house. Jason and Alan could’ve bonded over that too.

    gloria replied

    Agree. One of the best things about OLTL was the couples. GH is sleeping on the job in that department.

    Susan M. replied

    True!!!!!!!!

    Melanie replied

    David, Dante and Lulu are now married. However, you wouldn’t really know that because they have been on the backburner mostly in the last few months and that makes me mad. They had the hottest love story going on only to take a backseat all the gloom and depression and mob stuff. GH seriously need to bring some romance back!!

    david replied

    Melanie, who would have thought marriage would have killed Dante and Lulu’s romance? They got married and disappeared like some old, boring married couple. Hopefully, brighter days are ahead for them and GH.

    barbara t replied

    yeah, that would be nice ,bringing allen ,a j and emily back from the dead ,where they never should have gone ,big mistakes from the old writers .

    Dee replied

    I would love to see Bobbie too, but hope she hasn’t had any more facial work done. Do you realize how old Joe Kelly would be? Doubt we’ll see him. I don’t want Brnda back unless they do a much better job of writing for her this time. They didn’t do her justice last time. Don’t want them to bring back any more of those dead characters, just Robin. It would be ridiculous. But clearing the mystery of Victor’s ‘murder’ would be great, so Todd will be cleared & he will be free to stay in PC.

  26. Terri says:

    I would like to see Victor Jr come back so it would clear Todd of his murder. They worked good together the few scenes they had they clicked! Would love to see them work together to take Sonny down. However getting rid of the Revolution and bringing back OLTL to another network would also be awesome! I would like to see all of the cancelled soaps come back on one network so that we can all enjoy our favorite soaps on one channel! I would like to see the whole cast of OLTL and AMC back in production some day soon. GH has gotten so much better under the new direction of Frank and the writers from OLTL have taken over. Thank you!

    ann replied

    I’m with you Terri–bring the entire OLTL back to television, somewhere, i dont care where. If it has to be at GH get Dorian, David, VIki, Clint, Natalie, Blair for starters. But truly, truly Victor Jr along with Todd would be off the charts and boost their needed ratings. That Victor Todd story is a goldmine they need to mine.

    Reply

    Heather replied

    Are you kidding me. Many GH fans have defected because of the OLTL characters. Bringing more OLTL characters will only hurt the ratings of GH even further.

    GH should instead focus on bringing back its veterans such as Alan, Nurse Audrey, Robert, Laura, etc.

    Lisa replied

    Heather, if GH fans are defecting because of OLTL actors, they are putting the final nail in the coffin of GH. If it gets cancelled, don’t blame the talent that they brought over from OLTL.

    MiCHELE replied

    IT’S HASN’T HURT GH….HAVING THE OLTL PEEPS,IT’S ACTUALLY HELPED…IF YOU DRAW A LINE IN THE SAND OF HOW MANY CROSSOVER….THEN GOOD LUCK….IT WILL BE TAKEN OFF THE AIR AS ALL THE OTHERS…..WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER AND BE FOR EACH OTHER….IF THE SHOE WAS ON THE OTHER FOOT,YOU WOULD EMBRACE THE CROSSOVER…TRUST ME….WHEN YOUR STORIES ARE GONE,YOU WOULD DO ANYTHING TO SEE YOUR ACTORS FROM

WOW the LORDS and QUARTERMAINS, NICE!!

    Susan replied

    I would love for Erika Slezak to join the GH cast. I would definitely start watching that show again. She could look after Starr, when Todd finds his way back to Port Charles, he’s going to need Viki in the picture to help keep him centered. The role of Viki opens up many different directions for new storylines. I love her role on OLTL, she played a strong woman with morales, she had power and used it smartly. She’s a great actress. This casting news would be a dream come true!

    I for one would love it to be Blair. If Todd and Starr are now part of GH Todd whould have his one true babe at his side. The three against the clan Corinthos would be a sight to watch. So I hope they’re going to announce KDP.

  34. Shirley Miller says:

    I’m thinking it is Kassie, as Blair, returning to stay with Starr and Todd on GH. If not Kassie, maybe it is Lucky coming back to spend some time with Elizabeth and the children. Or it could be Vicki Lord from OLTL coming to make a visit to Port Charles and visit some of her friends. Or how about Melissa Archer as Natalie coming to give her boyfriend, John, a big hug and bringing their son to Port Charles so he can see his Dad. I gotta be right on one of the above – LOL!!!!! Can’t wait to find out – hope we hear on Monday!!!!!

    Viki and Clint would be the perfect buyers of the Port Charles Herald and then thy could be Diane’s bosses! Although a Kassie DePaiva long term contract would be phenomenal! I kinda like Carly having a girlfriend who gets what her life is! The same goes for Blair!

    Yes, Terri, I forgot all about that OLTL ending. Like I said, ALL of the OLTL cast members, including Trevor St. John, joining GH. If/when Victor is found to be alive (and that would mean that the woman holding him hostage (he sure doesn’t have luck in that department, does he), Allison Perkins, either lets him go, is captured, or he escapes.

    You got a point. They are already 4 OLTL actors. THAT’S MORE THAN ENOUGH.

    The more OLTL actors they are bringing to Port Charles, the more GH fans will defect. General Hospital needs to bring back veterans actors such as Alan, Frisco, Laura, Robert, AJ, Nurse Audrey, Felicia, Benda and Holly.

    GH doesn’t need OLTL actors. They are driving viewers away.

    Petra,I agree with you,I am a gh fan and a oltl fan and when you say they are not real fans ,you have a point for many years I stuck with the boring every day mob stories and I stayed with the general hospital bored or not I may have fell asleep a few times but gh was always on ,Soaps put on new characters all the time,If the mannings dont work out they will be written out .All the mannings are is another family that is moving to port charles,And john mcbain is a cop He is in landview to arrest todd,so what.They didnt take up any extra time and the fans who are saying that if general hospital gets canceled It will be because of the 4 oltl stars there wrong ,It wont be because of starr, blair, todd and john ,the real reason will be the way the writing that has been done over the many years with mob story after another mob story and the continuing story of sonny and jason there always is a mob connection and the franco story,I am not even going to go there,hopefully thats over with.So if the fans are leaving ,because of 4 people from One life to live ,that makes no sense ,Because they are not taking over the comings and goings of port charles These fans are leaving because they are choosing to do so,General hospital is interesting again and I like it .Everyone should stop complaining and support the 4 soaps that we have left in the daytime once there gone ,there gone .

    I disagree with comment on 3/25 at 7:43pm.. I watched GH since Dr. Hardy, Luiclle, Audry,Luke& Laura…..I see nothing wrong with OLTL crossing over on to GH…At least some of them…………….Makes me happy to see them……….

    Tina Gray replied

    If GH gets canceled, it won’t be because of the fans or the OLTL actors or the storylines or anything like that. It’ll be because of the pieces of garbage at ABC/Disney further decimating our soaps and their daytime lineup. They still don’t get it………….. But. I digress. I am soooooo happy to see Michael Easton. My heart is breaking for “Starr”. I’m wondering how they’re gonna bring Roger Howarth on if they think that he murdered Victor. Unless Bo and his people are going to find Victor they’ll mention it when “Todd” comes to Port Charles. That will break my heart because I want to see it all play out. I will always watch and have always watched GH, no matter how trying the storylines got, because I always want to support the actors and my beloved daytime genre. We should all do the same!

    Let’s pay homage to AMC. No one BETTER from that show (and I mean it) than David Haywood. Whoever it is, just get on with the show…. It’s not making me any money either way.

    What would help ratings would be to bring on a super, super star from OLTL. While each fan would have a different suggestion, the ones I see that would send ratings off the charts would be Robin Strasser and Tuk Watkins (Dorian and David). Can you imagine the millions of OLTL fans immediately tuning in? I can.
    The story line would be Dorian responding to Blair, a fellow “Cramer woman” who is in trouble. She is furious about what happened to Cole and the Hope and comes to GH to help see they find the killer. Naturally, David is with her. FINALLY some humor would come to GH, which I find to be a dark, downer soap, (YES I still record it to help get ratings up, but I don’t like it).

    What’s kind of funny about that is if all the GH viewers left and all the OLTL fans watched, GH would have more viewers than it does now.

    Dorian could take on anybody in Port Charles (and GH would be better for it). I would love to see her threatened Sonny, and David insulting Sonny for some silly superficiality would be hilarious.

    Yes Yes Susan. They know who the star’s are on the show. But granted, Maurice could use a little rest and relaxation of memorizing all those lines….. But he just has such star power. I would hope if its Venessa, she stays on and gives us a real storyline with Maurice as his wife, and return more as the Brenda we once idenified with. I love her either way, but there were some real concerns about her protrayal this time, and some were justified, but not all.

    She did appear on GH today at the very end as Robin in a hospital bed, implying Robin is not dead. Everyone will greet this as good news. Robin has the potential to return to GH at anytime, and we don’t have to think about her death anymore, for which I am grateful. GH has been very depressing since Robin’s supposed death, and I am happy to know it never happened. But is this the casting news? I wish someone would have clarified the situation today so we wouldn’t have to guess.

    When I saw Patrick with the ashes I had a feeling that we were going to see robin,At least now we know she is alive ,I knew they wouldnt kill her off ,it would have been so wrong ,Robin is a very loved character and I am like you grateful she is still with us and she can return,I would love to hear she is staying,but If not knowing she is alive is better then her dead.Now the big mystery is who has our Robin and what do they want with her and how did they get her out of that room whos body was it and Who is the bad guy?

Guess if GH folds she’ll def come back, regardless, the door is wide open:) Hope they show her captor at least and then leave it at that. Have a feeling they’re going to leave it at that.

    I loved OLTL also and don’t mind the characters that are on, but some of you guys need to remember, not every GH fan watched or even liked OLTL and you have to understand if some people are upset about them joining the show. There were already some characters on GH that needed fixing or were pushed to the side with no storylines, so now we have the head writer and ep from OLTL writing for GH and bringing some heavy faves for OLTL and many GH fans don’t want GH to become OLTL 2.0. GH already had its own problems that needed to be fixed before bringing any new characters around. Just think if the shoe was on the other foot, you had OLTL as the last soap and here comes GH mob stuff invading that show pushing some of your favorite characters to the side. I don’t think many of you from OLTL would be too happy with that either. So when you ask people to stop complaining and just support the last soap on ABC, well that may be wishful thinking. You can’t make other people be interested in watching just to save a show. And sorry, the ratings have not improved so all anyone can do at this point is just keep watching the show if you still enjoy it.
