Quote ChargerGirl: After reading here how some feel that Madeline is 74 because Donna Mills is, I decided to see if GH had an age for Madeline. While I didn't find how old Madeline is supposed to be I did find that a Donna Mills is NOT 74 . She is actually 3 months into her 73rd year since her birthday is December 1, 1940. Not that it's a huge deal but who wants it said they are older than they actually are? Also I found out the reason she is so hot for the money. Because her husband died and left zilch to Madeline and Nathan. They are dirt poor! Just for the record, there was no mention of Nathan being anyone other than her son.
Thanks for this... also wanted to add (although I KNOW it won't matter for some because they are blind to reason
), but JUST because and ACTRESS is a certain age does NOT mean her character is the same age
Madeline could be ANYWHERE from in her upper 50's to 70, it has not been said how old she is and the argument of her exact age is IRRELEVANT.
The actress who played Connie was quite a bit younger than Sonny.... yet we knew her character to be around
the same age as he since they dated when they were teenagers. You just had to assume she'd either had a lot of work done, or she simply aged well.
Her real life age was also IRRELEVANT.
. PS the actor who plays Brad is 40
IRL yet is playing a late 20 something on GH.
The actor who plays 16 year old TJ is actually 21 and is one of the reasons I'm not happy with him and 15 1/2 yo HP playing love scenes.
And while Lulu is younger than Maxie, ER is 4 years older than KS.
In soaps age is relevant to the character not the actor.
So until they show otherwise, Madeline is Nathan's mother.
This is just another nonsensical argument that will go round and round and round and round
. And really what does it matter mother, grandmother just get on with the storyline.
