If you watched General Hospital in the 90s, then know where the nickname “Nedly” is derived from.
“Eddie Maine” was Ned Ashton’s (Wally Kurth) stage name when he pursued his music career and was performing for fans. His number one fan was his love, and mother of his daughter Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton), Lois Cerullo (Rena Sofer).
General Hospital spoilers reveal GH is heading down a familiar road, this time with a new generation. Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and Brook Lynn Quartermaine are heading for a similar path as that of her father and mother. Now that Brook Lynn is suggesting Chase develop his musical talents and pursue a career in the industry, Chase just might follow in her father Ned’s footsteps as she cheers him on just as Lois cheered on Ned.
General Hospital news and spoilers reveal in a recent interview, GH star, Wally Kurth opened up about his history as Ned and his professional alias, Eddie Maine, along with the love story his character had with Lois. He mentions the correlation between last and present, and how Chase and Brook Lynn’s upcoming story is sort of a reflection on his and Sofer’s storyline in the 90s. “I really like the idea that they’re doing something with Brook Lynn and Chase that’s [reminiscent of] the Eddie Maine/Lois Cerullo story,” Kurth continued, “where the gal has to talk the guy into being a singer and to go for it and to trust his ability, because that’s kind of what happened with Eddie and Lois. I told Josh [Swickard] and Amanda [Setton], ‘Have fun with it!’
GH news and spoilers reveal Kurth’s opinion on Josh Swickard and his role opposite his TV daughter. Wally expresses, “I love Josh,” adding, “He’s a good guy and I enjoy working with him. And he’s done such a great job in his Nurses Ball performances, so he’s obviously got the chops to do a musical storyline!”
Upcoming GH previews and rumors indicate Chase will hand over his badge for the spotlight as his number one fan encourages him to live out this dream. Do Chase and Brook Lynn have what it takes to live up to the legendary love of her parents, Ned and Lois?
