Great news for Anna Devane fans! General Hospital showrunner Frank Valentini announced on Twitter today that Finola Hughes has been placed on contract. Valentini tweeted:
This is awesome news!!!! Finola Hughes is rocking very scene she's in these days. She deserves it! Good move, Frank. Wish he would have done the same with Tristan Rogers right from the beginning though.
This was a no-brainer. Welcome and wonderful news!...
So happy to hear we will be seeing more of Anna. We have to keep GH on the air!
Frank you did it! You saved Port Chuck!!! I'll be watching every day again with Finola Hughes on contract.
So happy to hear this news. I agree she's been great in every scene and with every person she's shared scenes with thus far.
@Soapjunkie88: Is that Ally Rescott Bowman as your avatar?
How much do I love the reference to "Loving"? Why can't that show be on DVD? Thanks david46208
Finola Hughes is just one of those actresses. The kind of actress who invests so much emotion and feeling into every line, every storyine she is given..similar to Kim Zimmer, Judi Evans, etc. I am thrilled she has inked a long term deal with the soap. Anna has woke Luke up. Tony Geary looks to be enjoying his work again, and frankly, it has been awhile since I have witnessed that in him.
David46208 yes also for the refence to Loving I didn't think anyone still remembered my belove soap loved her Aunt Ava Marie Rescott Alden played to perfection by not the original but the only Ava in my mind Lisa Peluso boy do I miss her on daytime soaps
I am so happy about this news. Anna Devane is one of my all time favorites on this show...She really classes GH up...She is a fantastic actress, that brings so much to each scene that she is in. I am thrilled they are keeping her around for Emma and Patrick...and I look forward to her working with my other new favorite on the show...John McBain.
My fave Cornith resident was Gwyneth Alden, played superbly by Christine Tudor. I enjoyed Lisa Peluso's Ava and Lauren Marie Taylor's Stacey. I loved Trucker and Trisha and the whole Cooper, Ally, Casey drama. Geesh. Now, I want "Loving" back!
Great news with Fiona staying put in Port Charles but my only gripe now will be you will have 4 major players as "SUPER COP HEROES" and not one of them will be able to get Sonny behind bars and let it stick.
That's my major fault with this show is that Sonny has yet to pay for a crime because the rationale that every plays to why he shouldn't, can't wont etc. are all sooo lame. "Poor Michael" seeing his father go to jail for seeing his father shot someone to death. he won't be able to deal with it"
But back to the topic, I hope they have something great in store for Anna. It's about time Port Chuck has some investigators with a brain around again.
i thought the HUGE news was that David Hayward & Orpheus labs were coming to General Hospital.
All hail, Finola!!! Best Performer in daytime right now!!!
The_Moustache, David IS Anna's ex-husband, so it's not out of the realm of possibility... I even joked a couple of weeks ago that he might have Robin.
Considering that GH writers don't even know Anna lost a child, I'd be surprised if they know about David being her ex.
I just hope they give her more to do than handholding McBain and Luke.
Awesome! I'm loving Anna back on the GH canvas. Now please kick Sonny and Luke to the curb, STAT!
on the other boards they're saying that FV/RC want Melissa Archer "Natalie" and Bree Williamson "Jessica" from OLTL to join GH as their characters.
Awesome news. Now lets get robert back
Great!!!!!! Finola has been wonderful to watch.
Anna is the shiz. She needs to teach these other pretenders what it is to be a strong female character. All hail Anna Devane!!!
Frank is one good looking man
Petitejolie - He is soooo handsome. Me bad. Still love looking at a good looking man.
OMG, I think what a good looking man everytime I see his picture, and I really believe it's part of why I shift most of my anger on Ron, I just cant get or stay mad at Frank. I am ashamed...but DAMN He's FOIN!
Anna rocks - but there is extra magic with Robert. I still don't understand why there wasn't any effort to keep Robert around. In the wise words of Adele, "We could have had it all!"
