186 January 6th, 2018 Jessica Tuck On Wrapping Up Her Run As GH’s Cassandra: “I Think I’m Going Down!”

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

This week, General Hospital and longtime One Life to Live fans saw one of the finest actresses to grace daytime screens, Jessica Tuck, make a soapy exit.

Tuck, who came to GH to play drug-trafficking Cassandra who had ties to Valentin (James Patrick Stuat), and was the target of Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn’s (Michael Easton) plans to bring her to justice, wound up in serious coma after her nefarious activities.   Those included at the end of her reign of terror: holding Anna and Valentin hostage, and drugging poor recovery drug addict, Finn.

One Life to Live fans recall Jessica as Megan Gordon Harrison, whose love story with Jake (Joe Lando), and the character’s eventual death was one of the most heartbreaking in daytime soap history.

On her exit from GH, Tuck told Soap Opera Digest (in the latest issue on newsstands now) about the longevity of playing Cassandra: “I never really knew what her deal was going to be or how long I might be there.”  She went on to say, “I was on borrowed time.  There was a flurry at the end of the scripts and I said to my family, ‘I think I’m going down.  I’m getting really evil and awful.”‘

Jessica expressed to SOD how much she appreciated the opportunity to work on GH, and again with her longtime friend and GH EP, Frank Valentini.

In story: After Finn explains to Anna that while he was drugged, he jumped Cassandra, but had no memory of stabbing her with the needle which rendered her unconscious with a drug overdose, Anna revealed to Finn that he didn’t kill Cassandra, because she was found in an alley and was in critical condition in the ICU at GH.  Later, an upset Anna visits Cassandra in the ICU, where it looks like she may do her in herself.  However, we are later told the WSB moved Cassandra to a facility and into custody, where she may never recover.

So, what did you think of the ending of Cassandra’s story? Were you hoping GH would keep Jessica Tuck on the canvas longer?  Comment below!

    There is new evil in town and it was Cassandra….she could easily take over for Helene Cassidine!!!!….So who is Faison’s other son…if older than Nathan i hope its Finn…can you imagine Anna’s reaction that she is falling in love with Faison’s SON!!!!

    I think Faison’s other son is Peter Wells. The new COO of Aurora Media. He pushed Lulu hard to get her to do a story in Faison, why?????

    Celia replied

    I’ll buy that,Kgs….except that Finn is too old to be Faison’s son….
    …oh, golly gee…what am I saying!!….Sam is Julian’s daughter, looks more like should be his wife…..it’s a soap….a world without physical dimension…
    …the universe does have, at least, ten dimensions. Perhaps GH and all of soapdom have not been accounted into the physical field yet……a place where we defy age.LOL.

    Shay replied

    More like a place that totally defies logic, CeeCee!! Realistically speaking, Julian would have been all of about six when he fathered Sam….I know Alexis covets men who are younger and full of sexual stamina, but that’s just ridiculous!!!!

    I agree, get rid of Nelle asap. She is a total drain on the show.

    PLEASE GET RID OF THIS CHARACTER…..WASTE OF TIME….

    Patrick replied

    why oh why, do fans give a hoot about Michael Corinthos’ … you would think from his lineage… Quartermaine, corinthos’ and Carly herself… Michael would be ALL that and a bag of chips

    he’s so flatline… and Nelle is truly a waste of time

    IT”s TIME for Michael and Nelle to head of in to the sunset – never to return

    Shay replied

    Exactly, Jimh! Cassandra perfectly fulfilled the role of icy “b*+@# goddess” that Port Charles has so sorely needed since Helena’s hasty departure. I really adored her cool and classy demeanor and thought that her arrival brought with it such a panoply of prospective plot possibilities, including the tantalizing notion that this lethal lady was, in fact, a bonafide Cassadine! In the near future, I truly hope that Cassandra indeed emerges from her supposedly hopeless coma and returns with a vengeance, ready and refreshed for a new nefarious caper, perhaps one that doesn’t include the scourge of drugs attached to it! Just as I have oft repeated in reference to Britt, my sentiments regarding the crafty Cassandra can be summed up with the singular request of “Bring her back!”

    Jimh….I think Faison’s son is Peter August (Wes Ramsey) &Laura Wright’s (Carly) real life bf.i think he is setting up for confrontation w/Faison through Lulu.Maybe it’s all tied into the “supposedly killing of Nathan….Faison’s other son.
    Just my suspicion. …ps…alway enjoy your comments and your love for “soap”…especially soap opera sl’s from long ago.

    Sounds soooo good, vinman….most plausible assumption yet. He does seem to be very vested in this. Do you think Faison has any inkling Nathan is his son? Look out Dr. O if he does!!

    Celia replied

    No really…..there is supposedly a second son.

    Steve replied

    Faison’s other son is obviously Peter. The last name of August is a clue. In the manuscript, the son is listed as Octavius, which was another name for the Roman emperor Augustus.

    Now, as for who Peter’s mother is… since he is a publisher, let’s assume that runs in the family, and mom is actually Quinn (Jennifer Bassey’s character).

    super impressed with your deductive skills. never dawned on me about the name august. well done.

    Same story over ar DOOL. I said exactly the same thing about Stefan O, just a few days ago. These storylines are so parallel, one wonders, “What the heck is going on?”
    Octavian ( or Octavius–Latin, Augustus)

    GH should really find a way to keep Ms. Tuck, she was truly entertaining to watch. I agree that the show is lacking a Helena type, Jessica can surely fill that role.

    Reply

    Linda Podell replied

    Absolutely!! Keep her!!! Let’s find out that she, too, is a Cassadine. CASSANDRA CASSADINE!

    Reply

    Steve replied

    She would need to be Helena’s daughter (not by Mikkos as that would make her previous affair with Valentin incestuous). Thus, not a Cassadine

    Shay replied

    Perhaps Petros Cassadine is Cassandra’s father! Remember him? He was Mikkos’ meek lookalike cousin who turned up in Port Chuck after the Ice Princess debacle. That would make Valentin and Ms. Pearce more distantly related.. albeit still incestuously joined in the biblical sense, but, hey, given this crazy clan, anything is possible!

    Linda Podell replied

    She would still be a Cassadine heir, which Helena would have made sure of. Too young to be a re-cast. But very convincing bloodline. Probably grew up with Helena in some fashion. Ergo, the personality. We need Jessica!!

    Skeptic replied

    She looks like the actress that plays Helena, Constance Towers. I’m sure they thought of recasting Helena, but since Constance recently appeared in flashbacks, they didn’t want to disrespect her. I think they have too many older actress villains on the show. Why not have more nice older ladies, or at least give Monica more screen time?

    Reply

    Steve replied

    Recast Helena? Constance happily shows up whenever the show asks. She can still appear in flashbacks.

    Monica is now on more than many contract players, so that’s a good start. They should keep Lesley in PC, too.

    Dory replied

    Agree there. Jessica Tuck, when in OLTL, I see remember her dying days. I cried so much. I will never forget that day when she passed with Jake by her side. I wish she would have continued at GH for a longer time.

    That would have been great! But they made her too evil. Her run was too short–and, unfortunately, the character was not fleshed out nor given shades of gray. Too bad!

    They can still do that. Especially since she in a coma. So much material there! I’ve always been suspicious of Dr. Beck.

    Debbie replied

    It would have been great to see her paired with James’ character, specifically since they both play on OLTL (along with Roger Howarth – Franco).

    Soaphound replied

    I’m with you, Nancy. Such a powerful actress could have been given a character with more shading, not just an uncomfortable mix of horny and evil. At least Liesl has had the chance to grow beyond just gorgon status.

    Patrick replied

    OMG – what happened… did Anna and Finn.. RUN in to each other arms ? love fest … have the best sex?

    ewwww !

    I SO HOPED that Cassandra would have taken Finn down. god of god… let Finn do something REAL and meaty.. like truly show us what drug addiction is like, and wallah he’s ambulanced to Ferncliff sanitarium… he’s such a stand alone character.. as in has no development with any one… and that INCLUDES ANNA. just no meld with any on @GH. what’s the point of him on the show.

    She is awesome and the best villainess that GH has had since Helena, we can’t lose Cassandra she was the Only excitement GH has had in a year or more.

    Agree! I like the idea of her perhaps being related to Helena and continuing and her reign of terror for a long time to come! She really is too good an actress to lose and her character presents a myriad of possible storylines.

    Shay replied

    I share your enthusiasm for GH’s best villainess since Helena supposedly slipped off this mortal coil!!!! Hopefully, both shall soon make a triumphant return to Port Charles and be revealed as mother and daughter! Until then, Dr. O. will simply have to assume the heavy-lifting in the “evil-doing femme” category! I trust she is the right lady for the job and will do so with her usual unapologetic aplomb!!!!!

    Okay, so, Cassandra will wake up from her coma a different person. Perhaps she had a tumor, LOL, and whatever trauma she experienced, dissolved it? Hey, it’s a soap; where black is white and vice versa.
    ….That way, we will have a brand new, revised edition of the character.
    Seriously, I, too, would have liked to have had a salvageable Cassandra; somehow, someway.

    THIS IS IT ; why else are their 168 HITS… Jessica Tuck is a shoe in

    “…I really enjoyed the anticipation she brought to General Hospital. Excitement from day one. ”

    she was poorly conceived.. she had us all wondering what was going to become of Finn and Valentin

    argh! the opiod crisis … ruined her right their… from the start. did they just decide to quash this… ??? and thereby ENDING this fan favorite ?

    of course.. the fallout and/or bloom if you will… OY

    Anna and Finn ? GET REAL….. year 2018 is when Anna and Finn make out?

    she looks too old for him… and when she has to reign in her personality chutzpa intelligence… to fit FINN who’s Shelley and Franks pet. FINN from the time of his debut… has done not a damned thing to elevate his belong. what for ?

    Role from: March 13, 2012 to March 20, 2013 – McBain
    Role from: May 13, 2013 to August 5, 2015 – Dr. Silas Clay
    Role from March 21, 2016 to present – Dr. Finn

    he’s been on this show 5 years… and has had minimal impact. NADA

    THIS IS NOT a good time at all for Anna Devane.

    got sidetracked… Jessica Tuck energized GH.

    WOW did GH drop the ball on this one… perhaps they dropped this story until they could get a better grasp at all the talent they have w/ Jessica

    it certainly wasn’t that much fun watching her fawn all over Finn. now we are being treated to this BS in the new year 2018.

    Finola Hughes is not generating any heat. NOT – HER – FAULT

    I am glad she is gone. I have watched general hospital for 38 yrs. This show is not one life to live. It was canceked for reasons. General hospital needs to work on bringing back the original roots. Cassadines, Quartermaines, Spencers, Corrinthos, and the mob. Bring back Nickolas. Tyler Christopher.

    Shay replied

    @Sara….I absolutely share your disdain for the overabundance of OLTL alumni who have materialized in Port Charles through the years….most of their introductions have been stunt castings or downright unnecessary characters that added little to the GH canvas. However, I do feel that Cassandra was a truly different creature….she could have been a superb long-term evillainess in the mold of Helena, and given Jessica Tuck’s uncanny physical likeness to the incomparable Constance Towers, would have made a most convincing offspring of the Ice Queen herself! Oh, what I wouldn’t give to see those two return to town as the mother-daughter duo from H#!!.

    VIRGIE replied

    Yes, she was playing a good role in being the bad guy. Trying to mess with Nina husband and daughter. Somehow someway they should of drag it out a little more and I would of like it if she would.of got caught at the plant where she was making the drugs. She had the upper hand with Finn cause his vision was bluer. She did a excellent job in her role. nice

    Reply

    Shay replied

    I was really hoping Cassandra would go full-tilt psycho and bump off the useless Nina in an attempt to recapture Valentin for herself! Now THAT would have been fun! She also would’ve made a great bedmate for Julian…especially when the green-eyed monster that is Alexis reactively emerged! And if Cassandra did indeed prove to be Helena’s daughter— as many of us have surmised—how utterly moreish it would have been for her own offspring to kill the spawn of the woman Helena herself murdered…and with the same dagger??? Oh, that would have been toooo poetic!

    I love Jessica Tuck (Megan Gordon) I just struggled with the story line.
    Having loved ones struggling with addiction is heart breaking, I guess watching the real villains of drugs (the sellers) profit from what they take from families, just hurts so much!
    Do what soaps do best, find a way to bring this superb actress back to the canvas, but perhaps not as Cassandra, or… a Cassandra that has seen the light!

    I’ve always enjoyed Ms Tuck when she plays the ‘baddie’ on any soap. She does it with such an innocent look when she is playing the role until she is found out and then she can switch instantly into the most ‘evil Queen’ persona right before everyone’s eyes! Always such a pleasure to watch her! I’m so sorry she will be exiting the GH canvas! I was hoping the show and the writers would be using her as the ‘new’ evil troublemaker — like the former matriarch of the Cassidine family. GH needs to have that recurring ‘evil’ character to add tension to my favorite soap. And Ms Tuck plays that role with such grace until she reveals her evil heart when she really shines in this role! Surely GH writers can pull one of their famous ‘not really dead’ storylines and keep her on the canvas to continually be stirring up trouble for all the ‘saints’ on GH! Maybe she could cause trouble for Elizabeth and her children (especially Jake), or Lulu and her children. Please GH! Keep Ms Tuck on as the new evil matriarch on GH!

We dont need new faces GH fans want to see more of our old crew, Spin, Epiphany,Max, Milo, Mac, TJ, Molly, not to mention we never see the kids.

    Absolutely non-redeemable character. She sold poison & threatened children. Even Val the Bastard couldn’t stand her.

    That pretty much guarantees a lack of longevity for such a character. Jessica did a good job portraying her, but that doesn’t mean she should stick around.

    Of course this is Port Charles, so she could always have a NOT evil twin pop up, right?

    Well, a depraved serial killer being the son of a treasonous psycho terrorist like Faison would certainly make more sense than him being the son of Scott Baldwin – a somewhat sleazy lawyer (who will feel right at home here in Hell) but hardly one to pass on a lunatic gene.

    But the last thing they need to do is put Frodd at the center of yet another storyline. He was the stinking pile of dragonshit that messed up the otherwise well done return of Jason.

    And I’m not sure that even Faison would have put up with Heather.

    IS IT OVER ? already ?

    I’ve seen two good scenes that make me want her more

    1. that metro court scene with Jessica Tuck and Michelle Stafford… hair pull and which woman on top. that was full on REEL. that was just the tip of the iceberg .

    are we going to say coulda woulda shoulda … is she going to relapse and coma out?

    2. that scene with HER @ Michael Easton. when she read him the riot act.. about him and Anna going down. just prior to her blowing all that fairy dust in his face and he was rendered motionless and should have been given MORE DRUGS … because we dont’ need him. he’s uninteresting… always has been .

    is this the case of coulda woulda shoulda ? I am just getting intrigued and , wallah, the writers quashed this way too soon

    ALL FOR THE heroics and bash in the head each audience member.. that they simply must fall in love with the forced pairing of Anna and Finn.

Jessica Tuck was great, and i thinks theres more for her to do in the future, all shows need a good villain, and she fills that role way up. now w/ her supposedly “brain damage” she can convincing fake being unaware of her crimes and do alot of damage behind the scenes, plus we gotta figure out who did drag her out across town and left her for dead.

    No, you ain’t first with that one. I’ve seen it written at least 666 times already. Though all 667 of you are probably correct, as there’s not anybody else in town who is new enough to the canvas, in the appropriate age range to be Faison’s kid, and somebody who has clearly positioned himself in a place to interact with “interested parties”, in the case of Faison’s dealings with the citizens of old Port Chuckles.

Sonny shat AJ in cold-blood and everyone seems to have forgotten about that. This is just my tirade for today.

    Reply

    Satan replied

    What has actually been forgotten about AJ’s shooting is that it was Ava’s $1.98 Wal Mart special gun that killed him.

    She tried to shoot him herself before Sonny was even in the room, but the gun jammed up. That means there was a bullet in the chamber and the trigger already pulled by the time Sonny picked the gun up.

    Granted, Sonny isn’t exactly sad about AJ’s 666th death (aside from breaking the promise he made to Mikey) but would AJ have actually been shot that day, if Sonny had been holding his own, much better designed handgun?

    I don’t think so, and for the record AJ doesn’t either.

    What? Don’t tell me you thought he went to Heaven!!

    I hate when soaps attempt to tackle a complicated real life issue like the opioid problem and then write a “story” like this where the bad guy is foiled a few months in and the issue is just dropped as if it has been solved. Where were the scenes of how Cassandra’s operation was affecting the residents of Port Charles? Where were the scenes of doctors dealing with the fallout from overdoses? Basically this was a “story” that had no impact on the characters we care about and was nothing more than a way to pair up Anna and Finn. GH hasn’t told a “real-life” story in a believable manner since Monica’s breast cancer and Stone’s AIDS diagnosis.

    Agnes Nixon was a genius at taking the bigger issue and presenting it to the viewer on a personal level that both educated and entertained and had repurcussions even after the arc was over (a great example being Cindy having AIDS on ALL MY CHILDREN and how it not only affected her, her relationship with Stuart, and her son’s future, but also the community’s reaction to a person afflicted with the disease).

    I , quite frankly , thought Jessica Tuck was a snooze fest. I wish they had ended her a LONG time ago like when they first brought her on. Never have I wanted a character to meet a mob like ending more than her. The most overrated actress since Steve Burton (pun semi intended). Now that this half baked character is gone, can we please get on with it?? If you want to have a good villain, give Liesl more to do. She makes me happy every time she is on screen because she is a streudel like trouble maker and those are the ones who do the best evil. They feed you poison and sing you a song at the same time. Love me some Liesl !!! Goodbye Cassandra may you ride the halls of the One Life To Live cemetary with vim and vigor. Even being in the minority here doesn’t dissuade me from saying she was a waste of script writing. The story was dumb. She is overrated. I think my issue with Ms. Tuck is she tries too hard to be hard and intimidating. She is just not believable. For those who said she was a great Helena like character, umm all i can say is a big NOOOO. Constance Towers had Helena down to perfection. And she didn’t have to try that hard. Even her last appearance as a “ghost” was worth it. I would pay money to have her come back and take out Burton. Please soap gods…grant me my wish. Finn is growing on me but I really don’t see the spark with him and Anna. He belonged with Hayden. And can he learn to enunciate trippingly on the tongue? I mean it is not sexy to mutter. It’s just not. GH is running along but you can see the struggle to make stories work. They laid all their eggs in one basket – tale of two Jasons – and now they are paying for it with lack luster stories for every one else. Right now the only people I am enjoying are Sam Ava Griffin and on some occasions Carly and Nelle together. The last scene with Carly and Nelle was perfection. This is when GH shines. Nina needs some scenes with Ava to bring up that old crazy she seems to have lost when she married Valentin. I hope that GH doesn’t go through the DAYS disaster of bad stories for a year. Cause in this day and age, a strong daytime show can’t afford to be lack luster.

    The love story between she and Jake in the days of OLTL was truly incredible. That show is still very much missed.

    Since Cassandra did not formally die, she may be back someday as the writers seem to have left the door open.

    I’m really upset on what the writers did to Jessica Tuck/Cassandra. I was looking forward to her possibly being the next incarnation of Helena Cassadine, possibly her daughter, to carry on the family legacy. But what they turned her into even rivals the original Franco and other evil doers…I have absolutely no patience for the black drug market that’s destroying lives, no exceptions, period. I can’t see how writers could ever redeem her character, or Jessica, to appear on GH ever again.
