finola hughes as alex and anna gh
gh

Finola Hughes has once again stepped into playing the dual role of Anna Devane and her twin Alex Marick. Back in the Wednesday September 2 General Hospital episode, Alex called Anna and we were able to hear her chilling greeting and ever since then, Anna has been eager to lure her sister out of hiding and find out once and for all if she or Alex is Peter’s mother. The Halloween promo showed Anna putting on a witch hat, but we suspected it wasn’t Anna at all… And we were right. By week’s end, Alex revealed herself to be in Port Charles, dressed in a black witch costume (Anna was in a white one) and on the hunt to cause some holiday tricks of her own.

Read what’s coming up next in our exclusive General Hospital November Sweeps, which includes a devastating twist.

emme rylan speaks out GH status
gh

On Tuesday November 28, as first reported by Daytime Confidential, rumors started swirling that Emme Rylan was leaving General Hospital as Lulu Spencer Falconeri. Later, the actress posted a photo on Instagram, wrapped in the arms of her partner and their three children with the caption, “Some days are hard and you just need your whole family to give you a hug.”

Last night, October 29, Rylan spoke out on her General Hospital status via video in an Instagram story… (You can read, in just about its entirety, what she had to say here.)

The actress has played the ABC soap role since 2013 and recently her character has found herself stuck between her ex-husband Dante, who she clearly still loves, and Dustin, the man who helped her move on from the past — a past that has resurfaced.

The daytime vet, a member of an elite group of soap-hoppers, is also known for her CBS roles, playing Abby Newman on The Young and the Restless and Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light. We will update readers on Rylan’s status when more details are released.

Adam Newman is out for revenge on his family and those who wronged him. Warning, spoiler ahead! Next week on The Young and the Restless, Melissa Claire Egan’s Chelsea finds herself in a jam when she’s abducted from the Chancellor Mansion. Filming the scene must have been a real treat since, as reported by Soap Opera Digest, the kidnapper will be played by the actress’ husband Matt Katrosar, even though we won’t see his face. It totally makes sense, given the current health crisis and the need for social distancing, plus the fact that the CBS soap actors’ real-life spouses have stepped in to film scenes. So, keep a close eye out or you might miss it! And while you’re here, check out a photo gallery of not only Egan and Katrosar but all of Young & Restless’ real-life couples.
