What are your First Impressions of Robert Kelker Kelly’s shocking return to General Hospital as Stavros Cassadine? I think the expression on Luke (Anthony Geary) and Laura’s (Genie Francis) faces said it all.
And he scared me right away today. When Stavros was shouting at Laura and she started screaming - wow, what an amazing emotional moment. Genie Francis and Robert Kelker-Kelly did a great job there because in those few seconds I saw Laura being held captive by Stavros against her will all those years ago.
I hope that the writers find a way to keep Robert Kelker-Kelly around. Stavros makes for a really good villain that I don't want to lose again soon.
Still can't believe RKK is back on my TV! Only FV could pull this off.
I so hope the powers that be have him back for an extended stay just so he can off Luke for good! Laura needs to be free to stand on her own without always having to play second fiddle to him and please make her blonde again,she's not ancient of days like Mr. Geary!)Ahh now back to Robert,he is a wonderful actor and I've enjoyed all his work ever since his days on "Another World" many years ago. Now all I dream for is the return of his brother the oh so fine Mr.Stephen Nichols/Stefan:)
It was HOT, hot, hot!
First of all, I was shocked! What a great surprise.
And RKK is like HE hs been kept on ice for the past 10 years, he is looking very good. And that SMILE! Swoon!
I'm loving it! RKK is so campy as Stavros but it's perfect for a man who has been on ice for a decade or so.
Man, his skin is amazing looking! I'm jealous!
I used to live for the episodes of Days when Robert Kelker Kelly was shirtless. What a fine piece of man meat. And I enjoy his acting, too.
he looks to be the same age as Nic ... the grey beard isnt making him look older ....
He seems to really be nailing the creepy/handsome thing that is central to being a Cassadine. I used to love him on DAYS and was disappointed that he fell down that hole and just haunted Nic a little last time. That island is fantastic! That's where evil-aristocrat supervillians ought to live. And did you notice that they finally provided a half decent reason for Helena switching the DNA tests? I love when they tie up loose ends. I'm almost surprised that Helena didn't have Jake too, maybe wanting to raise the Spencer grandchild as a Cassadine, and then, finding out he's not actually a Spencer, making him Cassadine island's stableboy or something.
Who played Starvos before RKK, didn't watch GH back then, but now for the last 2 years or so, I enjoy it very much.
Used to watch way, way back with Jessie, Steve, Audrey and of course Nurse Lucy...
So enjoying RKK. I want more Stavros. More Cassadine.
Please Ron C, can I have some more?
Robert KK is adorable and he's hamming it up in this story. After seeing his work on Days I know he can to better. I get why Cartini is revisiting the Cassadine popsicle days-because the Ice Princess story ratings were huge.
But seriously freezing the world and people in a freeze chamber was stupid then and its stupid now. In the Gloria hedays fans winked at a lot of weird stuff because we loved Tony and Genie.
He sat still for Laura's rape being re-spun into a seduction. We may have rolled our eyes but we loved the chem between these two. I loved the Ice Princess story because of the spy elements, the romance and the fabulous remote location shoots. But most everyone in my 10th grade class in highschool who watched GH with me thought GH crossed a line of credibility with this story. And we are all 15/16 at the time. That should tell the writers that adults now are not gonna all like the taste of Cassadine Frozen Custard, lol.
But I always say that Carlavati writes this stories on a very adolescent, immature, escapist level and most of his plots lack any credibility so what else is new? As for spoilers I didnt hear any about this story but its still no surprise because its how this regime thinks. Big whoop.
But really I think its sad because the Nurse's Ball rebounded the show back after the stupid Lucy the Vampire Slayer crap and now we have to contend with the Cassadine Frozen Custard with Lulu as the sprinkles, lol. Very very dumb. Back to the FF button. Sorry Tony and Genie I love you guys. When Cartini creates a good , believable story for you ( Hello, Luke, Scotty Laura triangle with Heather and Bobbie thrown in for good measure) I may watch. Until then I keep it on DVR but ff to the Carly/Brenda catfight. That was the only thing worth watching this week. Very sad.
PS...wouldnt it have been better to finally introduce Valentine Cassadine? We were waiting to see him since Helena gave that grave warning. He even had the old Dragon Lady shaking in her boots. Or if you want to go back to thawing Cassadines why not get the grand daddy of them all Mikkos? I mean if Stavros can survive being beaned upside his head with part of a bedpost and falling down the mayor's mansion stairs in the 80s, then thaw from a cryogenic freezer in the 2000s and then also survive falling into a supposed bottomless pit under GH, why couldnt Mikkos thaw out of the freeze chamber alive and kicking? Just saying. This is all ridiculous!
In high school my teacher called TV the idiot box and regimes like Cartini continue to see to it that stereotype will never die, lmao.
He is in the 40ish age range. No way RKK is old enough to be Nik's dad, lol. But the Genie is not old enough to be his mom. Genie is on almost 51. RKK turns 49 April 18th.
I must admit to a guilty pleasure.
Robert Kelker-Kelly a.k.a Stavros Cassidine is one fine looking man. His voice is just as sexy. Oh how I have missed him onscreen. So, however long he will be on GH, you better believe i'm not going to miss an episode. Perhaps when his stint at GH is over, he'll bring Bo Brady back to the canvas.
I found a lot of people on messageboards complaining about RKK's grey beard, but I think it makes him look even more distinguished! Also, they had to give him a little grey, because otherwise he would look the same age as Tyler Christopher's Nikolas...who is giving me Norm Macdonald sometimes.
Also slightly off topic - I was watching old episodes of GH and forgot how wacky it was in the 80's. All my complaining about it being too cartoonish are kind of unfounded when I see the scenes and stuff the show used to pull. I can admit to being wrong.
Brenda and Carly hate each other because they love all the same men and it started back in the Sonny/Carly/Jason days. Brenda had been the love of Sonny's life and Carly was obsessed with her best friend Jason when Jason first became Jason Morgan and was working for Sonny and sleeping with Carly on the side. Brenda and Jason never got along and Brenda used to give Jason mouth over his blind loyalty to and following of Sonny. Carly of course defended Jason. Then Brenda and Carly really started to hate each other over Sonny and eventually carried it to fighting over Jax. Carly has always been very territorial over Sonny and Jason and that is why she has no women friends in Port Charles. She hates Brenda for the same reason she hates Elizabeth, Robin, Sam and Alexis. because they have all loved and been loved by either Sonny or Jason. Carly doesn't get along with any women other than her family members. The one exception was Courtney (ah, to correct my other post COURTNEY is the soap character that I can't stand the most, and trumps my dislike of Lulu). Anyhow, Courtney was the exception to the Carly girl-hate. I'm assuming its because she was Sonny's sister so he couldn't sleep with her (one would hope) and I really have never understood why Carly was okay with Courtney/Jason but Courtney was the one woman that Carly approved of Jason being with and was really the only woman unrelated to Carly that she has befriended. I had hopes for a Carly/Olivia friendship but Carly eventually turned on her too.
OMG! If I'd have known RKK was on this show I'd have been watching all this time! Good Gawd he's HOT! If he's ever free again..B&B should snap him up. Lord knows that show need some men.
