Do you want Alicia Leigh Willis to join Guiding Light?
I do not know the actress well, but I can see her as Marah. Now can this young lady act? How did she do on GH?
I just hope she is not Michelle Bauer I can not see her as Michelle
No no no! She cannot be Michelle! I loved Michelle! And well, ALW's character was and still is my most hated character on GH. Personally, I don't want her anywhere near Springfield.
Damn that baad huh? I looked at some scenes from her on youtube on GH she was ok, she looks really young, but I guess she is ok. I just found out she was on the LWORD I need to look those clips up.
i liked her as courtney on GH....i guess alot of others didn't b/c they paired her with jason and many ppl were hoping for a liason pairing then and the fact that they used her to come between Nem, which upset that fanbase...to me it just seemed like the writers didn't know what to do with her after the jason pairing, so they just threw her with random ppl in random s/l's. I was a huge jason/courtney fan when they were together lol
Poor Alicia was pretty battered during her GH days, lol. But that had more to do with her character than her, imo. I never thought she was a bad actress
I hated her when she played Courtney on GH. I don't she would fit in on GL. Nothing against her but she seems more like B&B material or DAYS even. Do not let this girl near GL!
I wonder if GL is recasting Marah and if that is the part she auditioned for?
she could of auditioned for the role of Cassie as a recast or a recast for Harley
She was more natural on The L Word than she was on GH. So maybe it was the show. There were a few acting and delivery tics of hers I didn't enjoy on GH. I felt she had anti-chemistry with pretty much everybody on GH.
Just as long as she stays away from GH I'm fine
I was ok with her on GH but wasn't really drawn to the character. I could see her more as Marah than Michelle but I don't think that's a good idea either. They should make Marah more fiery than they have in the past. She should be more her mothers daughter. Lauren Woodland (ex Brittany Hodges Y&R) is my 1st choice.
For Michelle I think ALW could do an ok job but IMO her portrayal probably wouldn't be worth bringing back the character. She'd probably be an improvement over NSA's Michelle who always bored me to tears and sent me running for Port Charles. I'd like to see Sabine Singh (though I think that's highly unlikely) or Beth Ann Bonner as Michelle.
ALW could come on as Lara's ghost or flashbacks. that would be fine.
I think right now gl is the place to be for actors.If Alicia is castas marah might she set her sights on her former flame her moms husband jeffrey o'neil
I really don't see her as Marah.
I love Alicia! She was what got me to start watching GH. Don't judge. I was 20 and she was a hot little blond on the tv in the middle of the night (ah, the joys of youth and soapnet).
That being said, I don't love her enough to watch a show I have no interest in. Even as my interest in the show she got me hooked on is at an all time low. And they're on at the same time. Huh.
I'm having a hard time picturing Kung-Fu Barbie in Peapack.
I didn't like Courtney, but Alicia is solid. She is miles ahead of Caitlin or Bonnie in that she can actually carry a storyline. She's a vet. She was also on Another World as Ally Fowler and made Courtney one of GH's most popular characters. I don't want her for Michelle, but I could see her as a decent Marah. She would be that last "dead behind the eyes" girl. Did I mention I love Ashley and Jordan from Pine Valley Podcast?
Ok I went on youtube and saw the scenes with Courtney and AJ and it was good I liked her falling for A.J., Sonny trying to convince her to stop stripping, and Courtney pulling a gun on A.J. also her finding out her father was alive. good scenes?
I do not watch GH but are those the stories they still tell on that show? If so I may need to check it out.
After seeing her from start to finish on youtube and a brief scene of her work on L word, i think she is better suited for Marah than Michelle. Marah needs to be a Bitch and while i did not see that in any of the stuff I saw from her on youtube, Jeff Branson was a welcome surprise. So maybe she can play the roles.
Anything would be better than Catlin and Bonnie.
I agree with Jamey. Absolutely couldn't stand Courtney but Alicia is a decent actress. I guess the question is Marah or Michelle?
Marah I suppose would be ok but I just don't see her as Reva and Josh's daughter but you never know - so between the two roles that is likely the better fit.
If they cast her as Michelle on the other hand - I will not be happy. I want Danny and Michelle back in Springfield badly cause I really love them but I don't want Alicia playing Michelle.
Alicia is decent. She shouldn't be doing soaps any more. She should be focusing on prime time. She has a future there. Times must be hard for actors also.
I could get jiggy with her as Marah, but not my Michelle Bauer Santos! The show needs to wait for Nancy St. Alban to drop that bun in the oven and get her back...
Courtney was one of those characters that came on and was everywhere from day one. I hate it when they do that. Why can't they figure out that it turns fans against the character. Let us warm up to them. Leave us wanting a bit more and not wanting to kill the newbie. I was so happy when they killed Courtney and it had nothing to do with her being paired with Jason and everything to do with her swallowing up the entire show.
I can't see her as Cassie because she seems too young. I can see her as Marah. I just stopped taping GL yesterday. I spent too much time fast forwarding to waste the time. I may have to check it out if she joins the show just to see if she would be less annoying in a new role.

I think she'd be best as nuMarah, or if they wanted to bring back Lara from the dead.
She's a little young to be Harley or Cassie (though that doesn't stop casting directors these days, remember nuAlan Michael).
And egads NO, I hope they don't bring back Nancy St. Alban as Michelle. We already had to live through that once. Please don't make me relive the horror!
Alicia's alright but I don't really see her as Michelle so I hope she's not reading for her. If they want an ex-ABC soaper to be a recast Michelle why don't they give Erin Hershey Presley a call - that girl would rock that part and somebody really needs to hire her ASAP!
SusieQ - I love Erin Hershey Presley. She made Port Charles bearable for awhile.
I'm with you on that one. I'd rather Chewy Judy Chapman take over the role of Michelle.
Apparently Michelle will be back with an edge so maybe she could fit.
I am glad we won't have to re-live Michelle Bauer, professional soccer mom anymore, the horror!
I didn't really care for her, until the end when she was Courtney on GH and there's other ppl I would rather see in the roles of Marah and Michelle, but Alicia is a decent actress. So whatever.
Voted I can take or leave her.
No! GL is getting better, they don't need her to bring it back down.
ALW is my girl!!! I love her. Shes a great actress. Hate Courtney all you want but ppl need to separate their hate from a character from an actor paid to play them.
She's all wrong for Michelle. Michelle was already ruined when they cast a very cold actress in the part.
She's better suited for Marah. Marah is supposed to have a hard edge.
I liked her on AW. GH, no.
ALW is a fine actress. I haven't watched GL in over 20 years, so I can't comment on if she'd be a good fit for a character recast.
YES!!! I'd love for Alicia to come back to daytime. Loved her on GH but GH is so tired now so I'm all for her staying away from that show.
I'd start watching Guiding Light if she was on.
Loved her on General Hospital!!
I don't really watch GL frequently so I would prefer her to go on a different show. Better yet Alicia should keep trying to land primetime gigs since Soaps are really suffereing from budget cuts these days.
I wasn't a fan of Courtney during the breif time I watche GH, but I did like her as "Lover Cindy" on the L Word so I'm all for it.
