HomeTVABCKristen Alderson “Praying For Positive Answers” RE: General Hospital Exit Jillian Bowe February 1, 2013 ABC, Comings & Goings, General Hospital, News, One Life to Live, Prospect Park, Soap Opera, TV 13 Comments On the heels of Michael Easton's announcement that he will no longer be on General Hospital starting Feb. 8, co-star Kristen Alderson has given an update about her departure. As Daytime Confidential previously reported, Alderson, along with Easton and Roger Howarth will leaving GH due to the dispute between Disney-ABC and Prospect Park regarding the One Life to Live characters. Alderson said on Twitter: 13 Responses bishbay February 1, 2013 Later, Starfish. (That Connie moment had me laughing.) Hope your “positive answers” lead you to stay away for good. Todd and McBain, however, will always be welcome back. Log in to Reply Yoryla February 1, 2013 ^^ I laughed at that Connie moment aswell, lol. I truly feel bad for all the actors involved. They shouldn’t be blindsided like this. As for Starr, I’m pretty indifferent to her. I don’t dislike her but I won’t shed tears if she goes either. The truth is that none of these characters are vital to GH. The show will survive without any of them. Log in to Reply TV Gord February 1, 2013 Thanks for posting this. I follow her on Twitter, but I hate Twitter, so I’m hardly ever there. I love Starr and Kristen and I hope things can be worked out to keep her, Todd and John on GH. If they go, so do I. Sadly, this iffy attempt to relaunch the cancelled soaps will almost certainly put an end to any future visits from Blair or any of the others, but my feeling is that it’s only temporary (until PP inevitably runs out of money and doesn’t recoup enough of their initial investment). Log in to Reply The_Moustache February 1, 2013 she was easily the worst character/OLTL transplant in all the history of General Hospital. i’m sure she was a “okay” at OLTL but General Hospital is a different ballgame. She never brought it and always lacked everything. Log in to Reply appleridge February 1, 2013 I doubt the actors were blindsided. ABC knew when they asked PP to use the characters that PP could take them back if OLTL got underway Log in to Reply TV Gord February 1, 2013 [quote=appleridge]I doubt the actors were blindsided.

Are the actors supposed to wait around when they are offered roles on GH? Log in to Reply appleridge February 1, 2013 They have known this was possible since November. Possibly even longer. PP’s plan to revive AMC & OLTL began in August 2012 Log in to Reply TV Gord February 1, 2013 Okay, whatever. So they were supposed to turn down an offer to join GH in January because there was a chance this sketchy organization MIGHT get their act together in August? Really? Log in to Reply thecourt99 February 1, 2013 Maybe not turn down the offer, but definitely plan for contingencies. They were aware. That awareness shouldn’t stop them from what they were doing, but it should cause them to plan in advance. Log in to Reply Yoryla February 1, 2013 Gord, I totally agree^^ No reason whatsoever to trust PP after the first fiasco. Them now delivering was just a pleasant surprise. Log in to Reply nysam February 2, 2013 @TV Gord…..”Sketchy Organization”??? Ummmm….the company produces the hit, ROYAL PAINS on USA, WILFRED on FX as well as numerous feature films. They are a legit company and not “sketchy”. Log in to Reply TV Gord February 2, 2013 Sketchy. Log in to Reply CarlyCfan February 4, 2013 I’m praying too, hoping she never comes back.
