    Probably Serena…and she’ll be in a triangle with Micheal and Kiki or tempt Morgan away from Ava! But there are too many characters as it is which would be okay if ABC was going to do a spinoff soap but we know that is highly unlikely!!!

    General hospital did have a spin off, called port charles. It was a 30 minute soap, it only lasted for 6 years. It ran from 1997 until 2003. It got cancelled, do to low ratings.

    Since the cast of “General Hospital” is in such need of new characters.

    I know about Port Charles and Nightshift but that doesnt mean there couldnt be another but i doubt it!!!

    Probably Serena!

    I like Gina but a little too old to play this 20something?

    Good idea!

    Since Gina is 40, I do think she’s a bit over-the-hill to play early 20′s.

    Just what GH needs, another contract role. NOT!

    Please use the stellar cast you currently have before adding anymore players.

    Maybe they’re planning to have some kind of virus released that will take many lives.

    I agree. Let’s write-off all of the recurring cast members. Way too many characters. Storylines get lost in the shuffle. Characters are not seen for a good week + !

    Bad characters are always needed they keep things interesting and emotional.. I like the bad guys!! They rule the stories.. :)
    I guess I am not one of your ”we” and there are many others not of the ”we” .. lol :)
    I also like new characters they bring new stories and keep things from getting stagnate, some stay on some are shorter term but all are part of a story, a new story..

    Why on Earth are they bringing on yet another new character?!? They already have an inflated cast and they don’t utilize the veteran actors as much as they should. This casting is unncessary.

    I looove a gh and I love Ron and frank, but please-please- please,
    Stop casting new people and streamline the stories for the ones u have- I beg of
    Them- there is so much talent on the show that is unused or
    Pop up every 3 weeks- they have magic right there on set, right now-
    Also- finola Hughes needs to be on every tricking day.

    su0000 replied

    Perhaps the the actors want that time off..
    Many are involved in other projects..some just want to work 3 days a week, some are recurring..
    FV knows what he is doing with the cast. most likely to accommodate .
    There are reasons for everything…

    Finola might not want to ”be on everyday” she has others things to do and all are guaranteed so many work days in their contracts usually agreed on and accommodating them (when they have clout.. :)

  11. Scott (ATWT Fan) says:

    I suggest stop over-loading an already stuffy cast with more players. Use the cast you have and utilize its history. Ron’s addiction to creating new characters is getting tired and old. Just bring back past characters or use the supremely talented cast you have currently.

    DMR replied

    I agree! We hardly see AJ, and he is from a core, veteran family. Tracy, just saw her after a week +. Love Lucy, Kevin, and Scott; but, I forget about them and their storyline since they are on-air so randomnly.

    su0000 replied

    Past characters need the time and the want to come back.. Many do not want to come back and their is a budget to adhere to ..

    The cast do not all want to work 24/7 and the amount of days and open time for other projects are in their contracts..
    It is not all FV or RC fault..
    the starring cast have contracts of pay and number of days working and time for off for other projects etc, so you might want to look in that direction.. start with TG :)

    Sue, I don’t understand your constant defense of GH. You defend to the point of irrationality. Are you Ron’s mother?
    You could not be more wrong when you constantly happily chirp that actors like the time off and are grateful to be back burned. Please stop speaking erroroneously on behalf of these actors.

    Trisha replied

    Ron has hyjacked GH. He wanted from the start to keep OLTL going, so he brought the OLTL actors on, but he’s only gotten worse with his constant flooding of new characters and his treatment of those GH characters it’s obvious he has no interest in. Carly, for ex..is almost non existent..left out of stories that SHE should be a part of . The writing is horrendous and abc/Disney should really take another look at the damage he has done to a show that lasted for 50 years BECAUSE families and their connections were the heart and soul. Now GH is just another soap, without any depth or true feeling…only shallowness .

    su0000 replied

    umm the the character coming is not new but from a GH/Port Charles family..

    The writing/stories has doubled the numbers of viewers ,,
    FV and RC saved GH that was about be canceled and doubled the viewership..
    I and millions of others are loving GH !!

    If GH does not please you, tune out :) why punish yourself by watching it.. lol

    I would like to see Bree Williamson or Melissa Archer as the bad girl as they both did an outstanding job on OLTL in their bag girl roles.

    Just a little too old(they are in their 30s and this calls for early to mid 20s )

    Yes, Bree Williamson would be great… she did a great job of being a good/bad girl on Haven recently…plus I miss see her in a show.

    I am hoping it will be someone new, not a known soap actor..
    I wonder just how much trouble she will bring with her– I hope lots of it :)

    SZima replied

    Both of those ladies, at 34, are a little too old for this role. And I wouldn’t think they’d want to play someone so young.

    I honestly think this will be the Stefan/Katherine daughter that was rumored. Sometimes it is important for story to bring in new characters. I do think they should get rid of a few of the ones that they don’t need though. Most of the cast is recurring though.
    If this isn’t the Stefan Cassadine daughter then I hope it is Serena Baldwin.

    A lot of the of the actresses being suggested are way too old for the part as described. Rebecca Budig and Gina Togoni are in their mid 40s! Bree Williamson, Melissa Archer and Lindsay Hartley are all mid 30s.

    The best suggestions IMO are Brooke Newton and Kelly Missal but even BN is pushing the outer mid 20s limit of the part. KM would probably be great but I don’t know if they want to add yet another OLTL actress, especially one a little too close to the Todd, Starr, Dani dynamic.

    And I agree with others. I don’t know that GH needs another new character at all right now.

    I am confused on what they are doing over there they go weeks without picking up the plot they were writing on very hard to get interested in any of the stories. Could they possibly be recasting Lulu?

    Reply

    SZima replied

    Now this is a speculation that makes sense! I don’t think many people are happy with ER as Lulu, and if they are planning on replacing her, this is the kind of red herring they would use.
    **I don’t have anything against ER as a person, I just think she’s all wrong as Lulu.

    Why are they casting? They need to be getting rid of some of this cast! lol. But if any character is coming on, let her take Sabrina with her when she leaves. I hope they are not getting rid of Maxie! I will stop watching completely…as far now I watch it on Youtube.

    Exactly my thought. If this is Serena, she hardly qualifies as a new character. And I like “my soaps” with a BIG cast. I’m fine with not seeing characters for a week or two, too–they all get on my nerves after a point anyway, so it gives me a break/recovery period LOL.
