666 Park Avenue’s Samantha Logan Cast as Felix’s Sis on General Hospital!





Looks like Molly (Haley Pullos) is about to get some competition for TJ (Tequan Richmond) and/or Rafe (Jimmy Deshler) on General Hospital! ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting the soap has cast 666 Park Avenue’s Samantha Logan as Taylor DuBois, Felix’s (Marc Samuel) younger sister. GH headwriter Ron Carlivati told the magazine,

Not everything can be a triangle, so there will be another girl thrown into the mix.


Logan's first episode is slated for June 4.

    Well with the news they pretty much announced that she’ll be thrown in the triangle between Rafe/Molly/TJ. I guess they’ll pair her with TJ.

    I think it’s great. Good casting. But I begin to question if GH doesn’t have enough actors on it’s payroll already. The last couple of weeks, the show seemed to be all over the place. Now they introduced Maura West’s Ava and have reintroduced the three OLTL actors with new roles. And yet another?

    GH needs to be careful. Especially with too many new characters.

    My first instict was to say “yet another newbie”, when the fact there really is no room for any additions on the cast. However, this particular character I am interested in. It’s nice to see them develop Felix and add to his family members. I hope this also means we get a more serious Felix down the line, one with viable characteristics.

    I have not seen the actress anywhere before, but if she is good, this could prove to be a good story, and even performing the miracle of making the TJ/Molly/Rafe triangle interesting. As it is now, it is not.

    Hey it is getting a little blacker in Port Charles. Now they should cast Victoria Rowell as the Matriarch Vivian DeBois to round it all out and create tension with Shawn. Because heck they rolling in the dough over there at GH. They got money out the azz.

    I think the reason you only see some of the vets once or twice a week is because of the contracts they have. New actors are cheaper. They’re juggling things so we get some Laura, some Scott, some Kevin. It’s better than nothing at all. Samantha Logan was good on 666, looking forward to seeing her on GH. And if Felix is getting a sister, I think he’s here to stay.

    Someone less lazy than I should count up all the new characters Cartini has created (including the three OLTL transplants) and then see if there is any truth to that old oft debated thing about writers getting extra pay for characters they create. I see Luke and Laura are on tomorrow. I assume that will be their once per week showing. I think Anna made hers already, right? Mac and Felecia seem to have gone on vacation and now that the Wicked Witch of the Westfall can’t doctor anymore, I assume we won’t see Maxie until the baby comes out and then Cartini can get another bonus.

    @Sweet_Thing: This is the set-back part of Ron Carlivati. This happened at One Life To Live in 2009 and was part of the reason why the ratings nosedived. He brought on a bunch of characters unrelated to the main cast or from the past, and then had everyone in the most absurd of turmoil on screen. You have got to have some balance here.

    I would say take a page out of AMC’s playbook. Agnes has the majority of the cast tied to the vets on the show. It is multi-layered and multi-generational. That is what GH needs.

    I would say Ron needs to brush up on his Soap Writing 101. Starting with Agnes Nixon, Douglas Marland and Bill Bell. He just seems to jump straight to the chapter on James E. Reilly without understanding the fundamentals.

    Hmmm…. Let’s see, the Quartermianes, the Cassadines, the Spencers, Jones, Corinthos, Scorpios/Devanes, Eckerts, etc, etc, etc… were all new characters at one point or another. I’m just saying.

    Though I could do without Felix and Sabrina, I always love his interactions with everyone else (Carly, Elizabeth, Patrick, Emma). He comes off like a big brother to TJ which is good because TJ doesn’t have much family left.

    [quote=Sweet_Thing]I’m a little confused though because I thought that Felix was gay so isn’t his sister going to be a gay too? I thought it would be good to pair her up with one of the other women on the show. I feel like AMC was the only one to address gay women and then Kendall didn’t turn out to be a gay because her and Bianca were only half sisters.[/quote]

    @everyone: GH has 30 contract players, 28 recurring and 3 new additions about to be added (this one included). That is too many people on one show if you just count the contract players. GH needs to be paired down to about 24 contract players 7 recurring. I mean the cast list is out of this world. That is just too much in today’s world too much.

    Oh lord I literally slapped my forehead! Having a gay sibling doesn’t mean that you will be gay. Seriously was this a real comment?

    Anywho I like the idea of expanding Felix’s family and diversifying the canvas more! Good point to the poster who mentioned Billie Dee Williams’ character it never occurred to me that he shared Felix’s last name!

    @yorla: I don’t know if Billy Dee Williams will return. Apparently he was not too fond of his pairing with Sonja Eddy for obvious reason. Billy Dee don’t like this… “Miss Billy” was not happy!

    Happy about this news! I’m liking the Rafe/Molly/TJ triangle. They’re all adorable! Maybe the writing doesn’t make the most sense at times (Why is TJ so unrelentingly illogical all of a sudden?), but they need it that way for now to make the story work. Anyway, if one of them’s going to get the shaft, I like that there’s *finally* another girl on the canvas, for them to pair with. I also really enjoy that RC brings diversity to his canvas. That’s real life. This girl’s pretty. I hope she can act!

    And, I’d rather them bring on more characters like a second teen girl finally, who are actually needed, if they’re expanding the cast anyway. There’s a lot of characters currently I could do without and I don’t think the show needs them, but I’m a firm believer that a soap needs a teen set, especially for the summer.

    Anyone remember Brian and Claudia? I would like it if Felix and his sister had a connection to them. I wonder if either of those actors is still acting.

    On one hand, I’m glad to see Felix get some family, and hopefully a little back story. On the other hand, I wish it didn’t sound like Felix is going to continue to just prop other people’s stories: first Sabrina’s, and now his sister’s–and in I might add, yet another young-adult story.

    Maybe at some point, GH does plan to give these younger DuBois a matriarch or a patriarch. If they did, then they’d really be cooking with gas. Felix needs a real dramatic love interest and the family struggles that go with it!

    If everything is not a triangle then why they just cast Christina Baldwin, Lucy and Scott’s daughter? She’s coming on as a teen. So it will be Molly/Rafe/Christina.

    Why does Ron C and Frank hate interracial couples so much? For them to be so gay tolerate they seem very racist. JMO

    So now TJ will be in backburner land where he occasionally pops up to speak some jive then disappear again.

    I’m going to cut Sweet_Thing a little slack, because unfortunately their are people in this world that still have no clue about being gay.

    I really liked the actress on 666 Park Avenue.

    Yes, RC/FV have way too many characters on the show.

    Well….I am happy because I want Molly and TJ to separate. I have minimal interest in these recent triangles. I hate that it seems that someone has to be “bad” for the other one to be “good”. Why can’t one be good and the other be better?

    I am on the fence because I was starting to like Molly and TJ, and it seems safe to have Molly with the troubled white kid, and TJ with the new black girl. Just…safe. And if they don’t have chemistry? then what? And so does that mean that Felix’s first story will involve his sister, who no one knows? Another story full of people that we don’t know?

    Since I haven’t seen a single episode of this air, nor do I have any idea who will be paired with whom or how it will eventually play out, I will reserve judgement and merely say that I found Ms. Logan quite enjoyable on the otherwise forgettable hot mess that was 666 Park Avenue.

    I had been hoping another teenage girl would be added to. The Rafe/Molly/TJ mix and I am even happier that sheis related to Felix. I don’t see the downside to creating a family for him since he is one of the best new characters on any of the soaps airing today.

    Ron was not writing when John and Evangline were a couple. Layla and Cristian were in the background and they are both minorities so maybe Ron was comfortable with that. But we barely saw them anyway. And was Destiny and Matthew a real couple??????

    As happy as I am about Samantha Logan coming on as Felix’s sister! I have to agree that most writers in Daytime seem to not like writing interracial couples. Hell, they barely like writing for African Americans in general.

    Case in point: Sean Blakemore on GH has never actually had a full length storyline that is about him!!!!

    Cristian and Layla were together on OLTL, but we very rarely saw them together a couple.

    Destiny and Matthew never actually got together on OLTL, they slept together once and were friends for majority of their time together. We got a glimpse at a potential romance in the finale, but when they brought OLTL back online, Matthew and Destiny are at each others throats and falling for people of the same race.

    Ugh to the nth degree.

    This teen scene needs to be ditched now. Molly & Rafe have all the makings of Starr & Cole II. And I just don’t wanna see that played out again.

    Anyway, Felix needs no family for he is a joke. A cardboard cutout stereotype whose sole function is to prop the godawful chemistry-free Patrick/Sabrina “romance”.

    @Nk3play2: You need an African American couple on a soap. You do have this large African American viewership of women who want to see black love on screen. Generally if you have at least one black couple you can do whatever you want with the rest. But it was the Angie/Jesse, Dru/Neil, Malcolm/Olivia Lexie/Abe, Whitney/Chad, Jessica/Marshall, Gilly/Hamp, Kat/David and Carla/Ed that were among popular pairings amongst African Americans and even non-blacks.

    @liason4real: Well middle America was not a big fan of Kish. I remember that time period along with a whole host of other stories. But I do believe that part of Kish’s problem was that they newbies eating up screentime from the vets. And that if one two had been Billy Douglas verses a newbie then it might have worked.

    OK, I’m not saying I don’t like AA couples, I love them, if they’re right. I mean Angie and Jesse were the only reason I started watching AMC.

    BTW, back to my initial point, have Jesse and Angie ever been involved with characters of another race. NO!!! Jesse had that white baby mama off screen, not onscreen. My complaint is that majority of the writers in the industry today tend to avoid writing GOOD stories for interracial couples like the plague; I don’t know if they still think it’s the 60s, or if the actors/actresses disapprove, but it kinda annoys me. It always happens where writers have a descent interracial pairing with loads of potential and then they suddenly change their minds and pair them with someone of the same race and it just doesn’t have the same affect.

    I live in middle America and just loved KISH, Marcy on the run with baby Sam and the drag Queens. Sigh. Fun times. I fell in love with Kyle wanting Fish to be honest about being gay. Throw in baby Sierra Mist, Roxy, Cristian, Layla and OLTL had their own version of Modern Family. What a waste of a good story. :((

    Oh for the days when Joseph Phillips’ Justus was romancing Cynthia Prestons’ Faith Roscoe. Yeah, it had my less than favorite mob element but he was still a Ward/Quartermaine which I loved. Didn’t hurt that they were attractive to look at and were fine actors to boot… 0:)

    Darling, fabulous clip. She is absolutely right. When I travel I wear three different attires in one day. You simply can not wear lunch attire to dinner, it is simply uncivilized. But I was born with the mind of someone of a different era.

    Now in regards to this Sweet_Thing comment, I beg your pardon? First thing darling, your name should be Stupid_Thing rather. How ignorant are you to write such a heinous thing. We may all have our moments, believe me but to make such a statement your either mad or just a fool. Darling please find somewhere else to spew your hate.

    I for one welcome this new colorful addition. I think Gh needs more diversity. The young man who is portraying TJ is a very well trained actor and he should have more things to do on the show. He was adorable with Felix. Too bad he did not take Felix’s advice. Those who are concerned over GH’s budget please keep in mind that GH is the only soap on ABC. Therefore the expense that was put into OLTL and AMC are being poured in GH. It may not be much but it is enough to cover the less expansive add ons. FV and RC did wonders for OLTL with what they had. FV is infamous for only shooting scenes once and occasionally twice. I have faith that these fellas know what they are doing budget wise so can we give the questioning of the GH budget a rest. Really darlings what business is it of ours?

    I’ll never not miss Cris/Lyla/Kyle/Fish. I wish Kyle & Oliver could have came to GH. A cop and a doc seemed like a natural fit.

    I loved Cris & Lyla too. I don’t think it was Ron not writing for them, as much as it ended up being Lyla/TS leaving. Their romance ultimately got short shafted. Matthew & Destiny had no chem on OLTL. I know I wouldn’t have wanted to see their romance. The recasts on the new OLTL do, and they’ll prob. get together eventually, but Ron doesn’t write that, so bringing it up here is moot.

    Molly and TJ were adorable, but no couple, on any soap can just be together forever happily. Then there’s no story. Molly and TJ break up now, they’ll probably date again eventually. Ron’s treating Molly and TJ like any other couple. Race isn’t a factor.

    Also, considering white characters outnumber minorities by A LOT, chances are TJ will be involved with another interracial romance at some point. One thing I really enjoy about Ron, is that he’s more inclusive of diversity than any of his ilk.
