    I am glad that they are bringing back Kate but would prefer that Megan Ward return in the role.

    Does this mean we're in for a Coleman/Kate/Sonny triangle? Poor Coleman doesn't stand a chance.

    I am glad Kate is comming back but why did they have to change the actress?! Megan Ward was GREAT, I loved her in the role, and was looking forward to her hopefully getting more air time again sometime. Now Kate is back but not the right one. Must admit I'm dissapointed, and as happy as I am to be getting Kate back it remains to been seen if I still feel this way after the new actress starts.

    While MW looked at least 5 years younger than her supposed schoolmate, Sonny, I thought she played the role perfectly and enjoyed them together onscreen.

    Now this recast is 15 years younger than MB and looks totally unbelievable as the same age. Don't understand why they could not find an actress much closer in age.

    I wish they would concentrate on the characters they already have and bringing back the old cast members.....especialy if GH is on borrowed time. The 'Kate Howard' character never added much to the story, especially after the Sonny breakup.

    Not sure how I feel about this. I have to say Kelly Sullivan is beautiful.

    I don't like the recast. I think this new girl looks like a young carly. I was hoping they would pick someone that looked more like Olivia since they are cousins
