I know the news that four OLTL stars will be making their way to GH as their characters from the now cancelled soap has been out for days but I just have to talk about it. I was beyond thrilled when I learned that Kassie DePaiva, Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson will be reprising their OLTL roles on GH I literally jumped for joy. What a fabulous way to bring new viewers to the lone ABC Soap.
Back in the late 1990’s when Another World was cancelled a few of the characters from the show headed to As The World Turns, which is how I became a huge fan of ATWT. Before the AW characters that I loved so much joined that show I had never watched it. I was a loyal fan from that point on until it went dark in September 2010.
That is why I think Roger, Kassie, Michael and Kristen joining GH is freaking awesome. Despite the fact that all of these four people have amazing acting talent their characters are going to fit in with the rest of the GH crew beautifully. I don’t want to speculate about how this transition is going to happen I just want to cherish it. I will say this though, even though I do think this is a fabulous news that doesn’t mean I want General Hospital saturated with a bunch of One Life To Live characters, a few is great but let us remember the show is GH. Sorry a little side note there but just sayin.
The fate of General Hospital still hangs in the balance so here is hoping this move brings some One Life To Live fans so we don’t lose yet another great soap fade to black.
