Jane Elliot

Tony Geary, Jane Elliot and Kin Shriner Give the #GH50 Interview to End ALL #GH50 Interviews!

I don't even know where to begin. Do I pull a quote of Jane Elliot reacting to Kin Shriner spitting fish tacos on her? What about those women Shriner had coming out of his dressing room—zipping up—during the 80's glory days? Did the late, great Gloria Monty really like Tony Geary best because he was drunker than the rest of the cast?

TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan gathered the General Hospital superstars who made Tracy Quartermaine, Scotty Baldwin and Luke Spencer three of daytime television's most iconic characters for lunch recently. What transpired might be the funniest soap-themed interview I've ever read. Here are a few snippets:

Elliot on why she quit GH when Monty was showrunner:

"I quit because Gloria insulted me. I was making, like, a dollar and a quarter a week — horrible money, so little money that I asked for a $50 raise and Gloria told my agent I was unprofessional. Now, you can call me a lot of things but you cannot call me unprofessional. I was so insulted she applied that word to me that I said, "I'm not working for her anymore!" I finished out my contract and left. I went to Knots Landing for a bit, then Guiding Light. I didn't return until after Gloria was gone."

General Hospital Ball Buster Jane Elliot Talks 50th Anniversary!




What's going to happen at this year's Nurses Ball on General Hospital? Don't ask Jane Elliot. The scene stealer spoke with AccessHollywood.com to discuss ABC's lone soap's 50th anniversary and what fans can expect. Warning, La Elliot seriously doesn't have much spoiler tea, because Frank Valentini has scoopage on LOCK!

Access: How exciting is the birthday stuff, the storylines and the Nurses’ Ball? What can you tease about that?

Jane: I can’t because it’s so hush-hush. I mean, I know that there [are] probably a dozen surprises of people coming back and I don’t know what they are because Frank [Valentini, ‘GH’s’ executive producer] has coded everybody’s name… If you call the call line, it’s the code name that’s getting called, so you literally don’t know who that person is until you’re standing on stage acting with them. One of the things that I like most about [Frank] is he believes in surprising the audience, he believes in not tipping your hand beforehand because it doesn’t give you a reason to tune back in… Frank does not want people to know what’s going to happen. He wants people to be surprised and there are some fabulous surprises coming. READ MORE

DC's Top 10 Female Entertainers of 2012

No. 10: Erika Slezak, One Life to Live


She only had a few precious weeks to entertain us in 2012, as One Life to Live ended its network television run early last January. Erika Slezak definitely made the most of her time. As Viki Lord dealt with the return of one of her deadliest foes, Alison Perkins (Barbara Garrick), and admitted that she still loved ex-husband Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn), Slezak displayed the same above reproach acting chops that made her a Daytime Emmy darling.

The woman who gave us Niki Smith also proved she could still be quite hilarious, portraying a highly-reactionary foreign maid during the Fraternity Row soap-within-a-soap arc. With OLTL possibly returning, we just might be putting Slezak on our "Best" lists for years to come.

Who Should Run ELQ on General Hospital?




Beloved patriarch Edward Quartermaine (the late John Ingle) has joined Lila (the late Anna Lee) in Soap Heaven on General Hospital. Now the question remains, who will lead the Quartermaine family into the next generation?

Daughter Tracy (Jane Elliot) seems a likely choice. She's certainly as ruthless as her late father. For years, Tracy's son Ned (Wally Kurth) served as the gatekeeper for both the Q family, and their Fortune 100 corporation ELQ. Perhaps ol' Eddie Maine will give up his Rock & Roll ways to stick around and head ELQ yet again?

Back from the dead grandson AJ (Sean Kanan) may not have as successful a business track record as Tracy or Ned, but he's just as ambitious. Plus, we're sure Monica (Leslie Charleson) would vote her shares in favor of her son.

Edward always had an affinity for scheming, self-preserving Skye (Robin Christopher). Might he put everything in the hands of his adopted granddaughter?

Although he only learned Baby Danny was his biological great-grandson on his deathbed, would Edward have provided provisions for Jason's (Steve Burton) heir in this will? Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) ending up with control of a block of ELQ stock would likely cause her in-laws more than enough reason to bicker in Monica's living room!

Then there's Michael (Chad Duell), AJ's son, who is gingerly making steps back into the Q fold, after growing up a Corinthos. Maybe Grandfather wanted to infuse ELQ with some younger blood?

Considering Edward's potential last requests for his empire might prove for naught, as unhinged ex-wife Heather Webber (Robin Mattson) tampered with his will. Could cuckoo Heather walk away with control of the family business? You tell us:

Who Should Run ELQ?
