News: OLTL Alum's Possible Move To GH?

It appears as if the first wave of OLTL stars may have found their way to GH under the new reign of executive producer Frank Valentini and headwriter Ron Carlivati. Soaps In Depth has learned that Ted King (Alcazar, GH; Tomas, OLTL) will possibly be returning to Port Charles in the new year, and he may be bringing Michael Easton (John) with him!

A spokesperson for the soap reminds that GH does not comment on rumors, but word is that both actors have a tentative start date set for late January. It's unclear whether King will return as an Alcazar brother, or his OLTL role. And while this would also be a return trip to Port Charles for Easton,

Spoilers: Dominic Zampragno and Julie Marie Berman discuss the wedding and their couple's future

Dominic: Dante takes her [to NYC] for a night out and it turns into something more. They go to Ground Zero and start talking about the future.

Julie: It brings up a lot of emotions, because Dante's character used to go there as a child and obviously, it rehashes the issue of losing a loved one to their work. It's good for them to have this conversation and it propels this spontaneous wedding. [The wedding is] perfect and sweet. I'm happy for the characters and I think fans will love the ceremony and all the sweet touches that make it personal to the characters.

News: Kimberley McCullough Speaks Out!

Kimberly McCullough doesn’t know how her beloved character will leave Port Charles or even her exact date of departure.

“I’m literally just with the audience playing along,” she said. “The really cool thing is that it’s been difficult for the producers and the writers to come up with a way for Robin to leave, which I think is very flattering to the legacy of the character. Everyone involved really wants her to leave in a heroic way, and, for lack of a better word, kind of classy way.”

Robin has been HIV-positive for many years, and some fans fear that producers will bring the story to a dark conclusion and kill her off.

“My counter answer to that is, ‘How do you do it without being dark?  It’s a soap opera, first of all, not a sitcom. Because of the nature of the relationship between Robin and (her husband) Patrick (Jason Thompson), you literally cannot have a happy breakup. It’s impossible.”

News: Is Anna Devane Coming Home?

According to TV Guide Magazine, Finola Hughes is returning to "General Hospital" as Anna Devane. Devane will begin taping in mid January; with her episodes airing in time for February sweeps. She will reportedly return on a recurring basis, and will be very involved in Robin and Patrick's (Jason Thompson) story.

With Kimberly McCullough exiting GH as Robin next year, one can only assume Anna is returning to be part of her daughter's departure, whatever that may be. With that in mind, how do you think Anna will affect Robin's exit? 

Will she be bringing Tristan Rogers with her? Expect good things to come with Frank and Ron!

News: Greg Vaughan to Return?

SOW and SID are hinting that Greg Vaughan could be coming back to take over as Lucky. When asked, Vaughan said, he's not heard anything about it. 

I personally would love for Greg to come back. Considering he never got a chance to do anything with his character, other than being Sam's rebound and the drug/Maxie storyline. I would love to see what FV would have planned to do with him.

His fans are all waiting with baited breath to see if he would come back as the offspring of the supernova couple. Keep thinking positive thoughts, it may happen.

News: Becky's Response to JJ's Departure

While Jonathan Jackson's (Lucky) resignation from GH came as a shock to many, one person who wasn't at all surprised was his longtime co-star Rebecca Herbt (Elizabeth). "I've known for such a long time," sighs the actress. "I knew before GH knew."

As Digest first reported in the 11/29 issue Jackson's decision to leave was, in part, due to the toll of playing constant heavy, emotional storylines since his return in late 2009.

Plus, when the stars of ABC Daytime to reveal their favorite moments from 2011, so many were received that they could not all fit into the magazine!

Here are the responses for GENERAL HOSPITAL!

What was the highlight of the year for you, storyline wise?
"For me, the dominating storyline was certainly the Jackal P.I. arc. It was definitely one of the more challenging things I've done since I joined the show. Some viewers might consider it a highlight, others a lowlight, but it certainly was what I'll remember from this year."
Other than your own, what do you think was your show's best storyline this year?
"Rather than pick one storyline, I just want to say how nice it is to have more  of the veterans around lately. Hooray!"

News: Dynamic Duo Headed to GH

The press release also announces the formation of Times Square Studios, which will encompass daytime and syndicated product for ABC. Frons will aid in transitioning ABC Daytime into Times Square Studios until his departure.

Here's some of what they had to say:

Seems like the Gina Solito s/l isn't being axed after all.
Recently RavenBeauty has a pic up of Bree Williamson from OLTL with this haircolor and hints at her coming to GH. Rumour has it that Bree is being cast none other than the mini mob princess, Gina Solito. At this point this is just a rumour.And with all the shake up going on, we're not sure it this s/l is still in the radar.

What do you guys think of Bree as Gina Solito?
