In an item out today, Knoxville.com blogger/writer, Terry Morrow spoke with Kelly Monaco (Sam) of General Hospital last evening, who stated that there is a major shift and refocusing ahead for the characters and stories in the New Year in Port Charles.
According to the item, “Monaco said the stories will loosen its tight (almost obsessive) grip on Brenda and Sonny (Vanessa Marcil and Maurice Benard). “They’re going to start focusing on other characters, too,” she says, with an acknowledgement that such a move couldn’t come fast enough. Monaco declined to say which characters or exactly what will be happening. Monaco also said as soon as the cast and crew returned from Christmas break the new shift was evident and obvious in the scripts. The star did address rumors on if Marcil is leaving soon. She said the star who plays Brenda is sticking around for “a long time.”
