86 September 6th, 2013 General Hospital Recasts Taylor Dubois With Actress Pepi Sonuga!

Courtesy/IMDB

There is a new Taylor Dubois at General Hospital!  Apparently, Samantha Logan is out in the role as Felix’s (Marc Anthony Samuel) sister!

Actress Pepi Sonuga has taken over the role. The Nigerian-born actress will make her debut later this month.

And according to Soap Opera Digest, “Logan is currently shooting Disney’s big-screen adaptation of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, which co-stars Steve Carrell and Jennifer Garner!”

The character of Taylor arrived on the scene in Port Charles back in June.  The character quickly became friends with Britt,  and had sex with TJ, who still was drawn to Molly.

So what do you think of the Taylor recast?  Good idea?  Do you like the character on the canvas, and that Felix has a sister? Comment below!

    GH does not need this character. There are so many good characters already that are not being used, why add this person who will be forgotten in a year?

    They are shamefully trying to add black characters to GH. They have plenty of characters they should use that they don’t!

    Pepi is gorgeous, and looks like she’s been much more enjoyable in the role of Taylor. However, this character is completely pointless. She should hook up with TJ, and take him and the worthlessness of Shawn off of the canvas immediately. All three can be a happy family off-screen!

    Jesus, cut down on the goddamn cap-lock and stick to one damn name. As so what if I am a ATWT fan, at least the show kept to its history and didn’t recycle storylines from other shows the headwriter used to write for. And I didn’t say you were the only one, I said you were ONE of the only ones. And judging from the other caplock addicts, you’re just the same person posting under different names. Get a life, please.

    IT IS NICE TO SEE YOU HAVE SOME MUCH TIME ON YOUR HANDS TO POST AND YOU CAN GO BACK IN FORTH WITH A WOMEN I AM REALLY IMPRESSED. YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO POST YOUR OPINION AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU POST. TRY GETTING A JOB AND DO SOMETHING THAT MAKES SENSE INSTEAD OF LOOKING LIKE A COMPLETE FOOL. TRY WATCHING SOME RERUNS OF ATWT SHOWS TO FILL UP YOUR TIME.

    Wow. You really must be a lonely, depressed and self-indulged human being. Take your own advice sweetheart, and it’s called Caps Lock, take it off. I’m not the one yelling at someone over the internet over a sub-par actress that was only booked for a summer gig. My time is well spent in this world, it’s yours that is not. Have a whatever kind of life you live, make something of yourself other than what you are right now. =)

    Logan was terrific as Taylor, and I really enjoyed her interactions with Britt and TJ. Yet they didn’t develop the character or give her much airtime, so not surprised at all that she left. It was a waste of talent IMO. Not sure about the recast, as she does not have acting experience.

    I’M GLAD THAT YOU HAVE RECASTED A NEW TAYLOR. SHE’S A LOVELY YOUNG LADY, BUT, JUST DIDN’T FIT THE PART. HOPEFULLY THE NEW YOUNG LADY WILL FALL RIGHT INTO IT. TIME WILL TELL, EVERYONE NEEDS A CHANCE WITH A NEW CHARACTER OR ONE THAT YOU HAVE TO COMPETE WITH. GIVE THE LADY A CHANCE TO SHOW WHAT SHE’S GOT. IT’S NOT FAIR TO KNOCK HER DOWN BEFORE SHE EVEN STARTS. GOOD LUCK HONEY, WILL BE WATCHING.

    Black characters are needed on gh. I would watch more

    There is room for all, new and old..
    Different stories need different people..
    If GH just used the stars the ones that have been with GH for umpteen years the stories would be so stale that there would be mold.

    I’m sure Tyler will be trouble for Felix and Britt’s only friend and her partner in crime and not used often..

    So true. Way too many characters and not enough time for the good ones. We need more Anna, Laura, Tracy, Robert. Aren’t they bringing in Sean and his daughter? Where are they?

  13. JustSaying says:

    I thought she was great. Seriously. I know I’m in the minority opinion here, but I thought she would be a good match for Morgan. Moreso of a match than with TJ. And I honestly thought she was a sincere friend to Brittany. I hope her character remains friends with Britt and she continues to put Felix in his place.

    Seriously.

    I thought she (Logan) was great too. And I’m a big fan of the vets, but agree they need to keep bringing new blood in. That said however, they DO have too many new characters at this point.

    I would have been happy if Logan just did the Disney thing then came back to GH after the cast had been culled a bit.

    Whatever happened to bringing in Christina (Lucy and Kevin’s daughter)? Also loved the progress they were making with fleshing out Milo… what happened to that? Seems as though too much has been dropped lately. I agree – too much emphasis on the old vets will put a choke hold on the show .. but wish it wasn’t either/or… either we get continuations of stories from 20 years ago or new stories completely siloed in their own universe away from everything else. Combining vets and newbies is the only way to keep the show healthy AND keep the show moving forward.

    Reply

    JustSaying replied

    I think they are going to return back to Milo when Lucy’s spa takes off. And notice how I say Lucy and not Laura. I don’t foresee any more development for her character.

    But pleeeeeeeease let me be wrong.

    IF there was ever a more pointless, useless, grating, annoying character in the history of daytime, I would be hard pressed to name one. This character serves NO purpose…adds nothing of value to the show, and exists solely to waste screen time that could be better spent on some of the hardly seen vets.

    Nothing against either actress to play this role, but why do they think we need to see this annoying character? Summer is over. Isn’t it time for her to go home to Mommy and Dadums? PLEASE??? Having not seen her or the other teens on screen for the past few weeks, I was hoping they dropped that storyline. Ugh!

    I haven’t missed Taylor ,Rafe, Molly or TJ on GH. I don’t think she needed recast I think they need a new story and new young characters. There are others that could go to like Brad, Felix , Kiki, Ava, Olivia, ,Sabrina and a couple others. The cast is to big and the storylines are bad.

    Shay replied

    Megadittos to that thought!!!! There is waaaay toooo much deadweight attached to GH right now, and those characters that you mentioned would be a very good place to begin winnowing down the cast. I have nothing against “newbies” if they bring something unique and of import to a plotline, but it seems as if all these random people are just taking up space (Ava, excepted, although I have never taken a shine to her!)… Taylor was such an obnoxious and unnecessary addition, she should have just been sent back to the” rents,” end of story…no one would have much noticed/cared about her absence!!!!

    Why the recast? The other actress was adorable and great in the role.

    By the way, where’s Duke? They have so dropped the balll with all the old/new couples. Duke and Anna, Luke and Laura, Mac and Felicia…Lucy and Kevin…we barely see any of them. it’s like a tease…they bring you back to the origins of GH and then whisk them away…

    I’m not happy to see her go, but I’m glad she moved on to something better. The writers spend their time writing stupid storylines for michael, morgan and kiki (ugh!) I don’t see any chemistry anywhere in that trio. The only enjoyable moments for me are scenes with Felix, Brad, Taylor, Britt, Diane and AJ.

    Okay…seriously…what was up with Nikolas? He walks into a room where a pregnant woman is lying on the floor…breathing in agony…with a nurse hovering over her prepared to deliver a baby…and he is all befuddled and confused and says “What’s going on?”. Sabrina’s hilarious retort “We are baking a cake” just made him look even stupider…and even then he didn’t seem to clue in. Were the showrunners trying to make this the stupidest moment EVER in soaps? Because it really is!

    Taylor, Felix's sister is no threat to anyone and she will not be a main character nor be taking the spotlight away from anyone..
    She is Simply Felix's sister and she won't interfere in your lives lol
    It is small but needed roll for Felix's life/stories, Felix needs connection to someone in his life.

    Not a fan of the recast. She has no connection, no spark with TJ, and seems very flat. Logan had it all and I couldn’t wait to see what she was gonna do next. She knows how to be a diva and manipulate, it was in her eyes. She should not be recast, she would be worth waiting for when she is done with Disney.

    Same way I felt about the new Lulu. Give her a chance. New actress – new beginning for Felix and his sister to come together. Family need one another. If they don’t do something with these two, then kick her off and move on with Felix.

    I think it’s great that Felix has a sister. Though at this point she is spoiled and obnoxious, maybe she can be redeemed. Dive into these characters history and really give them a great story. She is holding something over Felix’s head and they need to discuss it and deal with it. Let her be a support to her brother. There doesn’t always have to be negative drama. Let there be some real love shown between the siblings.

    Not a fan of the character so far but if she sticks around they’ll tone her down. Does anybody remember the hot mess that Elizabeth Webber was when she hit town lol? Nobody’s been in the role long enough to make the switch matter to me, so no problem for me there.

    I’ve watched Gh for over 20 years. I’m not black and I still thank it’s shameful that GH lacks substatianal black cast members. After the days of Simone Hardy and Justus Ward we haven’t really seen any. I enjoyed Ms. Logan, it’s ashame GH couldn’t give her a better storyline. The recast of Taylor is too old and not appealing to the masses. I think GH recast Taylot, again with a younger person and then have her a Rafe start a relationship.. I do hope GH keeps, Shawn, TJ, and Felix around. They are doing a great job. I do agree GH should be giving veteran cast more and better storylines. I’m Luke (Anthony Geary) coming and going. He should just go. So should Laura and the daughter Lulu. I fast forward whenever they are on-screen. I would like to see more Monica, and give her a ove interest. Bring back Bobbie (Jackie Zeman). I love AJ, but he needs a love interest his age, not Elizabeth. I also love Rebecca Herbst. I think Liz and Nik should be paired ans Brit and AJ should be paired. Brit is young but loos old enough and mature enough to pair well with AJ. Stop bringing Heather Weber on-screen. The storyline is horrible. I really like Maxie and I hope the Dante and Lulu raise her baby storyline ends soon. Maybe, Maxie and Dante can fall for each other or Maie and Micheal. Just get rid of Lulu. Since Spinelli is not a contract character anymore then get rid of Ellie Trout. I like Sabrina but she is too young for Patrick. I was hoping she was going to be like a Lucy Coe of the 80′s. Please give her some spicy storylines. I just wish GH would go back to the great storylines and amazing casting of the mid to late 1990′s. The teen stories were great with Nik, lucky, Liz, Emily etc. Bobbie and Monica had great stories and Carly came on the scene. Lois, Brenda, AJ, Jason and all the people in and out of Monica,s mansion were awesome. I wish Carly would go back to her roots. Can we bring back some Hardy’s? Or some Wards? I’m glad Lucy is ack but give her some story that shows her acting chops. I’m disappointed with brining the Jermone family in when you have other families that could be developed like the Cassadines and Quartermans. GH, please step it up or you are going to lose another watcher to CBS soaps.This is my first time posting. Thanks for letting me rant.

    Not a good move on GH’s part.They could have looked alot harder for someone better to play her part.She is terrible and boring. They need someone that has a spark like Logan had she played the part perfect. Hopefully they will recast this new actor soon.

    Really not liking the new Taylor at all. She seems to be trying way too hard to be like Logan. The new Taylor is flat and dull and doesn’t have the look. GH has made a few bad choices this year and I am disappointed. The new replacement for Taylor is one of them. Killing off Connie is another (especially since it wasn’t the actress’s choice). The new Morgan is another mistake. What a needy, insecure, pathetic character. Give the kid some chapstick already and tell him to stop whining. He’s a Corinthos for crying out loud. I just hope that they keep Nicholas and Elizabeth away from each other. That story line is so old and worn out, not to mention the fact that we love her with Lucky and it’s not cool to keep the tensions going between these awesome brothers. Also, there’s no chemistry between T.J. and Molly. Although there’s no chemistry between T.J. and Taylor either. Find new mates for these characters and put Molly and Rafe together already. At least their chemistry is smoldering.

    I also forgot to mention that the LuLu recast is terrible too! She’s not believable. I fast forward when she is on. I love Sabrina and Patrick and I love Patrick and Robin, so I am torn as to who I want him to end up with when Robin comes back. Sabrina’s ex-boyfriend Carlos is hot but looks too old to be her former counter part.
