    Both characters are fine, but they are such flat characters at this point. Sabrina is being painted as too goody goody. Give her some flaws to make her interesting.

    Even Liz has flaws and she is the original goody 2 shoes. (I love her though.)

    I am liking Carlos more, but I don't feel the heat between them yet.

    I don't have an issue with her non accent except for certain words, but I am around Hispanics all the time. (I live in Texas.) If you live in small town Nebraska and have never met a Hispanic person, they might see it as fake. Most Hispanics in movies/TV are sterotypes. I think it is refreshing that GH is NOT doing that.

    Quote buffsta: I absolutely CANNOT stand Sabrina! The total lack of chemistry between her and Patrick, her fake accent that only comes out when she says "Carlos", just HER as a character in general... Please stop...
    I cannot WAIT for Robin to come back and stake her claim.
    Bye bye Santiago! (This will be the BEST day ever!)


    Funny when Patrick rolls his R's when saying Carlos' name too!
    Don't know if he's mocking Sabrina or not.

    I can't wait for Robin either. Can't come soon enough.

    Quote lvmyabcsoaps: The fact that it is the only time she throws on an accent is with his name, but then again I thought that I made my point when I referred to Gloria from Modern Family. My mother has an accent and it's with everything that she says not just a name. So should everyone speak like that when saying a certain name from another country?


    When it is how the name is supposed to be pronounced the answer is yes. Many people who are of ethnic backgrounds use the correct pronunciation for names and...well nouns! Others pepper their speech with a word or two from the language they grew up speaking or heard spoken in their family homes. This is actually very common of many people of many different ethnicities.

    I agree with the overdone and Sabrina adds some passion with that Carrrrrrrrrrlos. Haha. Thank goodness Robin is coming back and not soon enough. Hopefully this reunion doesn't drag out for more than a few weeks.

    If you moved to a country (or in Sabrina's case within her country)where they did not speak English, people would probably pronounce your name their way but your spouse and/or family would continue to pronounce your name the way they had all your life. It would be unusual if they did not.

    Some know the truth but continue with it because they just want to complain about certain characters. No sense beating your head off the wall anyway, so to speak.

    Fake accent at pronouncing "Carlos" the EXACT WAY it's supposed to be pronounced? Yeah ok.


    I just posted this in another thread, but I don't understand why she uses a Puerto Rican accent on just the name Carlos either. Myself growing up in the US would pronounce the name Car (as in my auto)- los with a long O sound. Everything else she says sounds like she's lived in the US for years or all of her life, yet when she says Carlos... it sounds like she's lived in Puerto Rico all of her life. It does sound a little odd IMO.... like she only says that ONE name with an accent. Maybe that's just the way it is and I have no personal experience as I know no one from Puerto Rico.


    No, I have a co-worker who is from Puerto Rico. He's lived here in the Southeast for at minimum 25 years because that's how long he's been with the company (and he's only probably 45-50). His accent is still very very heavy. We have to have him repeat himself sometimes as well as most languages translating to English cause the sentence structure to be funny. He'll say things like "Put to the floor this pallet"

    Also, like I said in that other thread, Carrrrrrrlos came on and his first say 5 scenes his accent was fairly thick and now he doesn't have the accent either except on rare occasions.
