    GH...the actors

    In light of some of the comments I've seen lately on soaps.com about acting abilities, I recently asked admin if it was okay to comment on acting skills. They informed me that as long as it is not "cruel" or "harmful" it is okay.

    I think GH has been very entertaining lately. But as with any TV show, there have been some stellar performances and some real snoozes.

    So here goes. Which actors do you think are bringing it? Which actors are a snooze? Is it the storyline? Or are they able to take lemons and turn them into lemonade? What say you?

    And remember, nothing cruel or harmful.

    MB is bringing it! He's fabulous when given something strong and powerful to work with. I know playing bipolar is not easy for him considering he suffers from it IRL, but I applaud him for taking this on and showing us what he's really made of.

    Two actors that I think are good in their own way, but don't fit the roles are Morgan and NuLulu. Morgan is just so dense and angry all the time and I know people change as they grown... but this is no where near the old Morgan we once knew. I get young adult angst, but I think this actor is taking it too far. NuLulu is simply too perky and smiley for Lulu. Totally different from JMB's version and I'm just not feeling it.

    I was new to RoHo as Todd when he returned to OLTL the last year, but I liked him right away. He brought the same vulnerability and wittiness to GH in his role as Todd. Loved it.

    Now he is Franco and I know some are disappointed at this turn of events and cannot get into the character. But, honestly, for me, he is such a good actor that I really have no problem 'enjoying' him even as Frodd!

    In fact, I like RH more as Franco than I did Franco as Franco!

    I guess I don't see MB as a great actor like some do. I think he is an "ok actor" for a soap because after seeing him play Desi Arnaz...I think he is where he needs to be. He just needs to get it OUT! He CAN act out a scene ..like the ones today(Yes..he did them very well ..emmy worthy?)...but when he is having a conversation..it's like he has trouble remembering his lines.
    Is he bored? Maybe. I know I'm super bored with his character..so maybe he needs more scenes like today.

    Was this too mean? Anyone? Hello? too mean? NO?

    A lot of people complain about the actor who plays Morgan but I've thought that he was great from the beginning. Today he took it to a new level and to me, he owned that whole scene...nobody was touching him. I think at this point in Morgan's life, with how he feels about his family, he's going to be angsty and angry most of the time and I think the actor portrays it well.

    I agree with a previous poster about the actress who plays Lulu. I think she's okay but I don't believe she fits this role at all. She just does not seem to have that Lulu quality.

    The scenes where Spinelli learns the truth from Ellie are fantastic...all because of BA. He really showed his acting chops. He doesn't usually get a chance to do that.

    According to admin, the guideline is nothing "cruel" or "harmful." I am not a moderator, but I would say your post was neither.

    This was how I felt about Steve Burton before he left GH for Y&R. Looked like he was bored silly and was sleepwalking through the last couple of years he played Jason on GH.

    I thought the very same about SB too....then a friend who watches Y & R said the same thing..that he can really act. You know I despised Jason....but I love him now that he's gone LOL. I would though, like to see a recast and better dialogue.

    Chad Duell is an amazing young actor. I have always believed that of him and have to say that he proved that today. I had chills watching those scenes today! Great job today Chad!

    agreed CD is good he proved that with the rape s/l and I know some have issues with Morgan(BC) but IMO he held his own today you could really see the pain of betrayal in his face.
