Suffering a Loss: GH

GH's Claudia is unquestionably one of the most complex soap characters. She can make you hate her one minute and feel sorry for her the next. For instance, I hated that she requested Jerry's help in tracking down Michael when she thought he ran her off the road. In fact, I am still having difficulty comprehending what possessed her to do that, but that is a topic for another day.

Despite of all her shortcomings it was impossible not to sympathize with her when she lost her baby, especially since she had to watch the fetal monitor as the baby's heart got weaker. Regardless of Claudia's reasons for getting pregnant in the first place, it is obvious that she grew to love her child like a real mother. So it is understandable that she would need time to grieve following her miscarriage, a concept that seems to have escaped everyone around her.

On Friday's GH, both Sonny and Johnny were quite cold in telling her she needed to just move on. I know in their world human life is expendable, but this was Sonny's child so one would think he would be at least a little sad about the loss. I will say this for Sonny, once he got out of his own head and finally started listening to Claudia about how she felt he was much more sensitive to her suffering. He even arranged it so that he and Claudia could help pay for another child's education, an indication that he no longer wished to get out of the marriage.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.

GL Alum Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Music Video!

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at https://youtu.be/5Dyq4Tc7H-Y

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
