    This is awesome news!!!! Finola Hughes is rocking very scene she’s in these days. She deserves it! Good move, Frank. Wish he would have done the same with Tristan Rogers right from the beginning though.

    [quote=david46208]@Soapjunkie88: Is that Ally Rescott Bowman as your avatar?[/quote]
    No … that’s Tanja von Lahnstein, a murderous villainess from the German sudser “Verbotene Liebe”. Played to perfection by Miriam Lahnstein. ;)

    How much do I love the reference to “Loving”? Why can’t that show be on DVD? Thanks david46208

    Finola Hughes is just one of those actresses. The kind of actress who invests so much emotion and feeling into every line, every storyine she is given..similar to Kim Zimmer, Judi Evans, etc. I am thrilled she has inked a long term deal with the soap. Anna has woke Luke up. Tony Geary looks to be enjoying his work again, and frankly, it has been awhile since I have witnessed that in him.

    :party: :-) :party: I am so happy about this news. :-) Anna Devane is one of my all time favorites on this show…She really classes GH up…She is a fantastic actress, that brings so much to each scene that she is in. I am thrilled they are keeping her around for Emma and Patrick…and I look forward to her working with my other new favorite on the show…John McBain.

    My fave Cornith resident was Gwyneth Alden, played superbly by Christine Tudor. I enjoyed Lisa Peluso’s Ava and Lauren Marie Taylor’s Stacey. I loved Trucker and Trisha and the whole Cooper, Ally, Casey drama. Geesh. Now, I want “Loving” back!

I have a thing for devious blondes, hence why I am enjoying Connie/Kate (cartoonish as it may be). I need to catch up on VL. The last episode I saw was Christian being knocked out in a ring and having some kind of heart attack.

    Great news with Fiona staying put in Port Charles but my only gripe now will be you will have 4 major players as “SUPER COP HEROES” and not one of them will be able to get Sonny behind bars and let it stick.

    That’s my major fault with this show is that Sonny has yet to pay for a crime because the rationale that every plays to why he shouldn’t, can’t wont etc. are all sooo lame. “Poor Michael” seeing his father go to jail for seeing his father shot someone to death. he won’t be able to deal with it”

    Totally off-topic … but what the hell ;) … you have to catch up then! Really great stuff going down around the time of VL’s 4,000th episode that aired back in January. Didn’t like Jessica in the beginning but she did grow on me recently. :)

    But back to the topic, I hope they have something great in store for Anna. It’s about time Port Chuck has some investigators with a brain around again.

    The_Moustache, David IS Anna’s ex-husband, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility… ;-) I even joked a couple of weeks ago that he might have Robin.

    Considering that GH writers don’t even know Anna lost a child, I’d be surprised if they know about David being her ex.

    I just hope they give her more to do than handholding McBain and Luke.

    OMG, I think what a good looking man everytime I see his picture, and I really believe it’s part of why I shift most of my anger on Ron, I just cant get or stay mad at Frank. I am ashamed…but DAMN He’s FOIN!

    Anna rocks – but there is extra magic with Robert. I still don’t understand why there wasn’t any effort to keep Robert around. In the wise words of Adele, “We could have had it all!”
