General Hospital and Cougar Town’s, Carolyn Hennesy revealed while co-hosting the new On-Air On-Soaps Podcast that she has been approached by ABC Disney/Hyperion to write a book about all the characters of Port Charles from Spinelli’s point of view! Hennesy whose series of Tween Novels have been best-sellers is currently promoting, Pandora Gets Heart.
Also during the podcast, Hennesy gives insight to listeners on what went on behind the scenes of the Michael Corinthos switcheroo involving the exiting, Michael, Drew Garrett and the new Michael. Chad Duell. ”The only thing I can share is Drew’s reaction. For it to happen mid storyline this was a decision that was not made lightly. I do know that Drew came into the make-up and hair room and was obviously devastated, but an hour later he talked to his co-stars who said, ‘You are young, gorgeous and talented, and you will land on your feet ,’ and he managed to walk out with his head held high. I do know Chad is a lovely actor. What he has to do on the witness stand… now there is a performance! He had pages to do that particular day and it was unbelievable.”
Steve Burton also weighs in on the Michael Corinthos situation during our sit-down interview with the soap superstar during the podcast. Speaking on Duell, ”For this kid to come on the show and have a fourteen page scene, and do it in one take, and be really good, after two days of not knowing where you are going…he did a great job. It was probably the third or fourth time I heard the crew clap for anyone, ever!”
