In honor of another milestone for the 50 year old soap opera, the series has posted a video which contains new interview soundbytes with current GH cast members: Ryan Paevey, Maurice Benard, Rebecca Herbst and Tyler Christopher, Kathleen Gati and Emme Rylan, Sean Blakemore, plus executive producer Frank Valentini.

In addition, during the video celebration about how GH has rolled on to its 13,000 episode, retrospective clips are shown including those from last year’s revival of the Nurses Ball, and notable on-screen couples including: Luke and Laura, Steve and Audrey, Frisco and Felicia, and Bobbie and Tony.  Plus, there are several clips from current day episodes of the ABC soap opera.

Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) says in the piece: “When I first started on GH,  I was going to leave when I get bored. Well, it’s 21 years later and I haven’t been bored yet!”

    Great, now “all I need”, is for GH to fix the character of Frisco, have Victor be the one who has kept him away brainwashed or something, because what they did to his character last time wasn’t right…

    Although I totally agree with your assertions, Tony, the true culprits that assassinated the character of Frisco Jones were the dynamic duo better known as “Cartini.” They OWN it! Even Victor Cassadine could not have done such a despicable hatchet job on Jack Wagner’s legendary role…

    No Robert Scorpio? No original Edward? Epic fail.

    my family has watched GH since the first show. My grandma taped every episode after vcr’s came out she had the whole collection when she passed a few years ago and it was pretty amazing to see how dedicated of a fan she was. I have watched for 37yrs that i remember and have had points where I get irritated and dont watch but my family fills me in. Lately its been really good and really stupid at times so I’ve mixed emotions on the new team. I hope they work out the stupidity and get the show back to be number one cause I would hate to see it go. I wish the writers lots of luck! Please drop the heather nonsense and the baby swapping its went way beyond ridiculous! Also do not recast Jason if we cant have the real one leave him gone there are certain characters that cant be replaced by new actors sonny,jason,monica,anna,lucy ect. they have been the same for so long noone would work in those roles. Back when they replaced tyler as nicolos everyone hated it and he hadnt even been on the show that long. Still trying to get used to the lulu switch it doesnt matter if its a good actor its really hard to watch someone for years then all of a sudden a new face. I waiting to see if they listen to the fans and make the show amazing the writers have the potential but sometimes i wonder if they moonlight writing comic books and mix the to up. At least they have enough good to keep you coming back and hopefully for a long time we dont need any more food shows or talk shows we want afternoon entertainment.
