Reconciling Rebecca: GH

General Hospital Fan Club Luncheon
I know I have made this statement before, but after watching Thursday's General Hospital I think it bears repeating. It is simply a shame that Natalia Livingston is leaving the show just when the Rebecca character is becoming interesting. Not only has she made the Lucky/Liz/Nikolas triangle more intriguing, I am beginning to notice the potential impact she could have on the overall show. For instance, until now I never realized just how compatible she and Lucky actually are. Rebecca arrived in Port Charles as a con artist, which is something Lucky can obviously relate to because of his upbringing. In talking about this upbringing with Rebecca, Lucky revealed his inherent fondness for Luke for perhaps the first time in months. And these days any person that can make Lucky feel anything for his father other than resentment or embarrassment could have a positive effect on this volatile father/son relationship. One also cannot ignore the fact that if Rebecca helped Lucky reconnect with his past and find common ground with Luke, that could affect Lucky's chosen career path as a police officer. Furthermore, any relationship between Lucky and Rebecca would undoubtedly mean a more formal relationship for Liz and Nikolas. And since Liz seems to be on the verge of losing her mind, the timing has never been more perfect for her to become a Cassadine.

  1. Paula,

    I found that Rebecca's attitude must have been a result of her accident, but you're right - it's too bad she's leaving because even Lucky looked happier with her until she started up on her "I made the wrong choice" stuff. I can't think of anyone else there to pair Lucky up with except the recasting of Dr. Niles.

  2. Hi Peggy!

    I know, I really don't think I have seen Lucky smile like that in a while. He certainly doesn't smile around Liz that much these days. And you are right, there really isn't anyone to pair Lucky up with now, unless they try to revisit his relationship with Maxie now that she and Spinelli are having trouble.

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.

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.
