    I didn’t catch much of OLTL, but Tea was also a character that stood out! Even though, I don’t know if Frank and Ron playing this right with bringing in yet another OLTL character. They have to make Starr and Todd a part of Port Chuck first … and this hasn’t been quite accomplished yet.

    I think it’ll be great to have Tea in Port Charles I just hop it’s for a long period of time. I can just see scenes with her vs Alexis in the court room it’ll be amazing Flo going up against Nancy. I would love to see Blair back full-time though as to have her with Tea and Todd on the canvas would be amazing seeing as they were the money ticket for OLTL.

    This is good news imo Florencia is an awesome actress and can ya’ll imagine Tea going up against Alexis in the courtroom?

    I actually hope its long term, not like when Blair came over and then left after just a few episodes….I wonder if her staying is because she’s going after Todd/Roger H.

    this is the reason I could never get into GH they keep changing the cast. every time I turn GH it’s a new cast member. im a Y&R fan and at least it’s mostly the same main characters/family’s.

    Get rid of Starr and bring on Tea. Florencia could work WONDERS for this show. Tea could be one of the few women to actually put Sonny Corinthos in his place…….and she’d have far more chemistry with Maurice than Kelly Sullivan. And she’d also have great chemistry with Laura Wright and Lisa LoCicero. In fact, I don’t think there’s a person in daytime that Florencia wouldn’t have chemistry with.

    Well, I am not going to let a “good grief” end the mostly positive posts I have see on her. Téa was a wonderful character; she was dramatized through the capabilities of an underated strong actress in daytime. Florencia could bring something to the Sonny character if paired that would be redolant of the Tony Soprano/Jennifer Melfi union. And Téa is not afraid to slap up a guy if he pushes it.

    While, this is a good casting move. Some one needs to have a talk with Frank and Ron the way they did on Days several years ago about all the Passions actors coming over. Cool it. No more after this. Because they are walking a thin line between love and hate.

    I’m echoing David46208 on this one. What I’ve seen of FL (and I admit it
    hasn’t been much), has been quality. Put her with or up against NLG’s Alexis and/or share scenes also with CH’s Diane and you’ve got the makings of a fabulous law firm. If she’s blended into the cast, please have her put the bully behind bars, don’t pair her up with him. Please!… 0:)

    Heck no! Do Not pair the fabulous Tea with slimy Sonny. Yuck. I want my Tea and Victor. TSJ and FL have chemistry to spare!

    On a serious note, I love my OLTL peeps, but a short term stint like Blair had is all that is needed if it generates story for the current GH characters.

    Unfortunately, Micheal does not have a love interest if Starr is sent packing. The next generation of teens/twenty somethings is missing on the show which means Starr is here to stay!

    alstonboy I would have to agree with what you said about FL having chemistry with everyone….but please don’t even think of wasting my wonderful Tea on that horrible Sonny Corinthos…..Besides I want her to bring TSJ with her …I think it would be epic to have him on GH….while I like RH and his Todd…I LOVE TSJ..regardless whether he is Todd OR Victor….TSJ is one of my favs….I am praying TSJ will be the next announcement coming…anyone as long as it is not Natalie…still hoping for some McBam…and I am not partial to Natalie at all.

    I loved Victor and Tea… so I’ll be more than happy to see FL pop up on GH…. as long as TSJ pops up too, I don’t care if it’s a short stint or a long one… I prefer Victor/Tea over Todd/Blair.

    I can just see Tea throwing shade at Alexis, Carly, Heather, and Olivia, and maybe being friends with Anna and Diane, heck she could probably be friends with Alexis, but I think their chemistry might be better as enemies. I don’t want her anywhere near Sonny unless she gets to yell at him about something.

    GH is going to introduce new characters, some will work, some wont and that includes the gang from OneLife. Of course, I dont like recasts as a rule so maybe I should be more understanding of all the negativity towards the OneLifers…but I am not.

    FL is a very good actress and while I didnt like Tea 2.0(for nonOneLifers, FL left then returned) I’d love to see her on GH…without TSJ’s Todd/Victor(Tictor?). I thought that what she put up with from Tictor diminished the strength that made me love her during her first stint. So I’d like to see her in lawyer mode rather than couple mode and I’d prefer recurring to contract.

    To be honest, Tea should been brought on first as Sonny’s new lawyer; it only makes sense, John’s a cop, so he can come, Tea’s a lawyer, so she can come, I hope this is true!!!

    bring Tea, Blair, Natalie, Jessica, Viki, Victor, Brody, David and Rex to General Hospital!

    Fire Carly, Sonny, Jason, Kate, Olivia, Jonny, Elizabeth, Patrick, Steve, and Luke. they’re not needed anymore.

    Yes, excited about this. Fab actress.
    And as I’ve said before, I would prefer they bring on characters (that we know & love) played by actors that can actually ACT (esp. on a soap), than the LIW’s, Maggies, &/or Lawyer No-name #3 that TPTB will hire REGARDLESS to move the story along. I mean, these new characters WILL show up, at least 5-6 do every year, so why not some that already have a built-in fan base?? The Tale of Two Todds with RH, TSJ, KD, & FL basically gave OLTL a 3.0 on the days when it was at it’s peak/the hottest. Ppl would be fools to not at least *try* to get their fan-base( s ) on over to GH. And if it doesn’t work, oh well, their bad, they can just as easily drop them & send them on back to “Llanview”. Not a big deal to at least give it a try, b/c there really isn’t too much more to lose at this point.

    @Nk3play2: Tea LOVES Starr, she helped raise her as a baby, so there is NO WAY that she would defend ANYBODY that was accused of killing Starr’s daughter (& Cole). The only way I could see her defending Sonny would be if she were to deliberately throw the case so that Sonny would lose (which would be AWESOME!!**) or if Sonny could somehow get Victor back for her (but I still think that somehow she would double cross him, b/c as I said, she loves Starr like a daughter).

    **Side note: Wouldn’t it be awesome if Sonny actually went down for this??? I mean, if he had to like actually go to prison & face his demons (claustrophobia)… even if it was only for a little while? I know that he didn’t do it, but it was just be sweet, SWEET poetic justice for Sonny to go to jail for the one crime he didn’t actually commit. Hahaha, that would be brilliant. Even if it was only for like a month or 2 (I’d prefer 6), during which time John finds out that he didn’t really do it & then Sonny would be released a changed man (b/c he doesn’t want to be locked up in a cage again) and not the selfish, smug bastard that you’d think he would be (though I am pretty sure he would sue the state for false imprisonment).

    Yes, she is good character/actor. I noticed they are bringing the best actors.

    Is Diane still on the show? I thought she was gone or on way out. Seems like Alexis is representing her clients now. Just sayin….

    They will difinitely have to pear down a bit to meet budget. Isn’t that the name of the game.

    I would love to see more Blair. However, I don’t see what all the OLTL fans see in Starr. I remember her as a kid and she was ok but as an actress she doesn’t hold a candle to Lexie(?) who played Sonny’s oldest daughter. I really really miss her. I want to like Starr but so far no way. John is growing on me and if he takes Sam away from Jason I will love him forever! The writers have ruined her in my eyes and the new ones aren’t doing her any favours. Even at her best I never ever found that Jasam has any chemistry. Not like with Liz… whooooo they used to burn up the screen.
    I never thought I would see the day when I couldn’t stand Sonny but it sure has arrived… I cringe every time I see him on screen and it’s the writers that have done that too. He has to face consequences now and the character can’t be redeemed (imo) until he does. There is no chemistry with Luke and Anna… while he and Tracey are always on fire.
    I love the Connie/Kate storyline but I can’t stand Ewen!!! He might be less expensive than Ingo but doesn’t hold a candle to him. However, if he is Jerry’s son and that brings back Sebastian he will be worth it.

    Great another reject from the CANCELED OLTL.Why are TIIC wasting money on characters the we REAL GH fans do not care about when they can spend that money on actors/characters that we REAL GH fans DO care about and want to watch like Jackie Zeman,Ken Shriner,IR (Jax) or TC (Nick)?That would be better then forcing another newbie down our throats.

    I like Tea, and I think she would fit in at GH, but I would only like to see her on a recurring basis. I must admit that I feel like Llanview is taking over Port Charles. First Starr, which I can only take in small doses. Then Todd, which I am not really a fan of Roger Howerths portrayal, but anyway I can take him or leave him. I liked Blairs interaction with Carly, so I wouldn’t mind her coming in on a recurring basis either. The real keeper from Llanview is John McBain. Just the fact that he gets under Sonnys’ skin, and has flaming hot chemistry with Kelly Monico is enough to like him.

    If you are reading this Carlivati/Valentini, overall I think you are doing a great job, but slowdown with the OLTL cast.

    There is much story there, especially if Todd and Tea are going to be in PC for the forseeable future.

    I think FL is a fine actress, but the character of Tea is just gonna always get on this TnB fan’s nerves – because if you are a TnB shipper she is SUPPOSED to get on your nerves LOL. The only time I literally have to press “mute” is when she is cooing over Starr – I can forgive Tea many things but NEVER will forgive her for trying, with no good reason, to co-opt Starr from her real mother Blair back in the day. It still pushes my buttons as if it were yesterday. Since I assume she is coming to PC to help Starr I guess I’m gonna be in big trouble!! When Tea calls Starr “Estrella” the heebie-jeebies always take over big time LOL.

    It is also hard to see Tea be in PC while the FABULOUS KDP’s Blair, for some inexplicable and uncharacteristic reason, is not glued to her grieving daughter and creating all kinds of chaos trying to help Starr get justice and yet not go completely over to the dark side.

    The above is also confounding because, to MY mind at least, Todd and Blair being in one another’s orbit is cash money. They don’t even have to be romantically united – hell, there is nothing new there LOL – but that kind of insanely potent chemistry cannot be bought sold or predicted. It blows my mind that of all the things that could be borrowed from OLTL to bring the ratings, this guaranteed golden ticket is not being utilized.

    Perhaps I just need to be patient, but with the likelihood of cancellation looming, it is much more difficult than it normally would be.

    I just noticed that all the above makes me sound like a totes OLTLer and not a GHer – but I have been both for nearly 20 years. I took a vaca from GH for the past year for reasons I don’t think I need to press LOL, but am back to plug in and show support. I am not the only one waiting to see what Ron and Frank can pull together – and I am trying really REALLY HARD to be patient LOL!! It is clearly already much much improved – but nothing has me truly hooked yet.

    The only OLTL’ers on the show are Starr & John. They are the only 2 that have been on for about a month now, and apparently Todd won’t be coming until May (which is a month away), so why exactly are ppl complaining about there being too many OLTL ppl on GH when there are exactly only 2?? LoL. Ppl just want something to complain about. Todd & Blair were on for like 5 days a month ago, why would you still complain about that? When they come back & eat the show, then yes, by all means complain then, but as is we must be talking about GH a month ago b/c right now, Starr & John make 2. (And really, if it wasn’t Starr it would be another Abbey b/c Micheal is apparently a core part of this show & he will need a love interest… and I for one am grateful its Starr, at least she is the right age– I just wish they hadn’t killed off her baby, Carly would have died!).

    Miry, you are so much more eloquent than me. If I may, I cosign your entire post.

    I really dont understand the rational behind killing Hope, a child whose existence I never wanted or enjoyed, but like Starr she was a Cramer, Lord, Manning plus she was the grandchild of one of my faves, Marty Saybrooke. I reiterate the point that Starr is rich as in born into tons of cash but also in familial support, Hope should never have been in that car in the 1st place.

    Starr may have the financial means to hire a baby sitter for Hope while in PC, but I guess Ron decided it was too much of a burden while she and Michael eventually make goo goo eyes at each other. It would have been just as easy for us to have seen Cole/Hope escape the car right before it went over the ledge with Starr inside. We still could have had the AZ scene but with Cole/Hope. Cole disappears with Hope because he’s afraid of going back to prison, but not before notifying Blair about the car accident that took Starr’s life. The whole vengeance stuff with Sonny and Todd could still play out while an alive Starr is rescued without any memories by “fill in the blank” as a means to get rid of Sonny once and for all. Starr could be kept against her will and ends up accidentally being rescued during May sweeps by Michael.

    Sonny would have spent weeks in prison for Starr’s death while the rest of us GH fans celebrated. :party:

    My guess is that she is just going to PC for a day or two to explain to Starr how her father was exonerated in his trial, ushering in RH’s return to the show on a more permanent basis.

    I could see Ron and Frank bringing a series of OLTL characters over to GH for a couple of days at a time to see who meshes and who doesn’t. I love both Blair and Téa, but if I had to choose one of them to be offered a contract, my vote is for Kassie DePaiva. Besides, it would give GH a little more diversity, since Blair is Asian. ;-)

    @otalia4ever: What baby? If you mean Jasam’s I say let her keep the baby & bring Jake back, and let there be a dynamic there to play out. Jason being torn between both women– hey, the fanbases have spoken & they want them some Liason!, so even though I prefer JJ’s Lucky to be with Liz, mamma didn’t raise no fool, I’d give the fans what they’ve wanted for years, while STILL playing up the other side (the Jasam side). I would have Sam & Liz interact and try to figure out if they want their kids to actually be siblings (oh the drama there!). And if GH lasts for longer than a year, there could even be a dynamic to play out between the kids themselves (ala Jason & AJ— I personally cannot wait for Morgan to come back, hating both Sonny AND Michael). If you mean Starr’s baby, see below.

    @maxsmom: Aww, of course you may (& thank you!), but I say rubbish, you are more than eloquent enough! And I totally co-sign your post! They should have had it to where Michael was able to only save Hope (that would have still left plenty of guilt for him to wallow in, lol), and then they could have a connection over that… Michael would feel a connection to Hope b/c he saved her he would want to be a part of her life & protect her (so no more mob for him! he would actually give it up for her, something that Sonny would never do) and Starr could be drawn to him b/c he saved her daughter & b/c of his love for Hope (he would want to spend time with her, etc.), and that growing attraction would of course be marred (for the both of them) by Cole’s death. THAT would be an epic, young adult love story. Tie in the fact that Todd hates Sonny (as does Starr) b/c they blame him, Starr has a baby & Carly’s head would explode b/c she’d think Starr was trying to be a young her (the difference of course being that Starr actually has money & comes from TWO wealthy families so she doesn’t NEED anything from Michael, & Carly came from the trailer park) and she would enlist Jason to stop their union, not realizing of course the parallels with Jason/Carly & how Jason came to be soo attached to Michael in the first place. Oh, and not to mention that Todd is a one-time rapist, and Michael having been the victim of rape would obviously have a hard time (of course some of these things will still play out on screen, but I think it would have been better had they left Hope in the equation).
    And other thing that bothers me: NO ONE really mentions how this is now the SECOND time that Starr has lost Hope. I mean, Starr should be snorting crack right now due to her desperation over losing Hope AGAIN (Starr thought Hope had died after she was born, and she & Cole thought that & grieved for almost a year until the truth was finally revealed and she got her baby back).
    @liason4real: I could have totally been on board with that storyline as well! Esp. with Sonny in prison! ;)
    They just really shouldn’t have killed off legacy characters Hope AND Cole (even in my above scenario, Cole isn’t really dead, his father & mother found him & took him to nurse him back to health, & b/c if ppl found out he was alive he would be sent back to prison. I would have him come back 2-3 years with a new face or something to reclaim his family, a family that has already moved on! dun, dun, dunnnn).

    Then do we get Daniella, too? Whatever her name was. Or is she just going to college in Barcelona. Or Amarillo–for P&G people.
    GH isn’t managing the actors they have on the canvas now, I fail to see how all these additions, and duplications, help. Alexis is already “the lawyer”, goofy as she may be.
    John McBain, yeah, I’m good with that.
    I have a hard time justifying the others.
    But then I’m not writing the show so what’s it to me. I just don’t watch anymore.

    TvGord, KDP can be the first hire for the revived Asian Quarter.
    Miry, how soon can you get an interview with FV, your story is miles and away better than what’s happening. I am waiting for the summer before getting too critical but in addition to a bad start for Starr/Michael, Sam’s pregnancy is a chance for fans like me who just havent ever warmed to Sam to connect via pregnancy, hell I can talk to a stranger for an hour about pregnancy but this: is it Franco’s and was she raped is the continuation of the worst of Wolf and now lying to Jason about the information she found while bonding with John. I dont think Sam and Jason are a good match but I would want them to come to that conclusion without a 3rd party. I do think it’s interesting that I find McBam more interesting that I have ever found either McBain or Sam individually but I’d like an interesting pregnancy story which doesnt mean a crisis of the week pregnancy just a realistic one.

    @maxsmom: Hahaha, thanks!! …We’ll I’m on my Spring Break now, so I am available! ..Or he could just jump on here & use my ideas, I am TOTALLY cool with that & give my full permission. ;)
    And I agree with you about the prego storyline. It is the perfect way for ppl who don’t like Sam to warm up to her. I felt for Sam when she lost Baby Girl McCall, so I would like to see her be happy about this baby & start planning for it, going to the sonogram/hearing its heartbeat, etc. I mean, a few scenes of that SURE wouldn’t hurt her character (I am STILL trying to get over how she treated Patrick a few weeks ago… let me just tell you that McBam! is definitely helping). I mean, as it is I can’t really tell if SHE even wants this baby!? It’s all about Jason, and that he is finally going to get to be a father, & blah, blah… I mean, she joked that it would be better if she ran her car into a tree. That stuff ain’t endearing her to me, lol. I want her to show some joy over this miracle that she got (& yes, I understand that it might be a rapebaby, but at the same time it might not be & she is not even showing that side). Even if it’s just a little bit (I am talking just ONE scene where she talks to the baby or dreams about her or hears the heartbeat or something).
