General Hospital news and spoilers have reported the 59 year old daytime drama has filmed it’s 15,000 episode. Previously the tribute episode was set to air on June 17th, it was then pushed back to June 20th, and now, due to news coverage in GH’s time slot, the celebratory episode will air on June 21st.

When General Hospital fans reflect on their favorite soap opera, they can’t help to think of some key players such as Luke (Tony Geary) and Laura Spencer (Genie Francis), Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright), along with Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco), The Quartermaine and Cassadine families, and so many more.

General Hospital news reveals discussions from a recent interview with Daytime Emmy winner and 7 time nominee, Laura Wright as General Hospital’s leading lady, Carly Corinthos.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Cleveland.com has acquired some inside information in Laura Wright’s take on the longevity and legacy of this iconic American soap opera. When asked to explain her take on GH’s impressive longevity, Wright explained, “It’s the fans and their love for the show. We’re really here because of them and their love for the characters, the stories and, gosh, the history.”

As a proud fan myself since the mid 1990’s, I feel honored and appreciated at the credit Laura has bestowed upon the fans.

When it comes to taking the risk, and “going there” regarding bold, realistic, raw, and controversial story lines, Laura feels the risk isn’t a threat [because], “those are stories that should be told. So, I don’t find it risky. I find it current and true to humanity. We’re just telling people’s stories. I don’t know if it’s risky to tell the Alzheimer’s story or the transgender story because we are reflecting people in the world today and I think that’s important.”

Are the days of soap operas numbered?

It’s true that General Hospital is one of only 4 remaining soaps on television, and the only daytime drama left on ABC after the cancellation of All My Children and One Life To Live back in the earlier 2000s. However, Laura has a bright outlook when faced with the question of whether or not she finds the days are numbered for the soap genre. Wright explains, “I think the future of daytime is strong with all the different platforms you can watch the show on. The fans love that they can get us anytime, whether it be on ABC or Hulu.” Thank God for all of that!

Carly Corinthos: Wife, Mother, Strong, Capable, and a true force to be reckoned with, all while loving to her fullest ability!

Laura Wright touches on her feelings for her character Carly, and what it’s like playing this passionate, strong, intense, and loving woman. When named a “force of nature,” Laura agreed. She went on to describe Carly. She said, “First of all, thank you. I agree, she is a force of nature. It’s amazing and exhausting to be Carly depending on the day because I’m also Laura and she has her life. It’s really interesting, the difference between playing in Carly’s world and being in Laura’s world. But it’s super fun and I love doing it. One of our writers explained Carly as the woman that everybody wants to be friends with and I was like, oh my God, I love that. It’s so true.”

General Hospital spoilers and reveal Laura has spilled the tea on what is ahead for Carly this Summer. She admits that many changes are in store for her character, and her developing relationship with Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) is just the beginning.

Ultimately, Laura tells die hard fans exactly what they want to hear when asked about diving into another 15,000 episodes. She declared, “Hell yeah. Bring it on.”

General Hospital Spoilers: Alexis Plans To Prove Valentin Isn’t A Cassadine, Valentin Loses It, Shots Are Fired

A couple months back when Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma) came back to Port Charles, the idea that Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) was not actually a Cassadine.

General Hospital spoilers reveal that Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is planning to find out if Valentin is match. In the latest General Hospital promo, Alexis tells Nikolas, “If I am not a match to Valentin, he is not a Cassadine. Odds are that Alexis managed to get a hold of something that would have Valentin’s DNA on is having it tested at the lab. She wants to know once and for all if this problem will just go away, or if he is a Cassadine and here to stay.

General Hospital spoilers reveal Valentin loses it and goes crazy with a gun, shots are fired, and chaos ensues. Could this be the result of finding out his true biology? Will Valentin live in denial and continue on as a Cassadine?

Detective Nathan West’s Father… A Cassadine?

Ryan Paevey has been such a delightful newcomer to the GH cast. He has amazing chemistry with co-star Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), he’s easy on the eyes, and his role as Detective West is nothing short of sweet, sexy, compassionate, and much more. He is quite a catch and right now Maxie is blind as a bat!

Nathan’s first few months in Port Charles have been quite eventful. His recently found out that his mother, Madeline Reeves (Donna Mills) is actually his Aunt. His Mother is none other than Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) who is actually Madeline’s sister. He just met his sister, Dr. Britt Westbourne… and who he thought was his sister, Nina Clay, is actually his cousin. Britt and Nathan share a mother, and with all these women in his life, they have yet to touch base on who his Father is. In a recent interview with Soaps.com, actor Ryan Paevey was asked about his GH family connections. In response Paevey replied, “I think we’ll meet him. If I had to venture a guess, I would probably have to say that he’s going to be a Cassadine.”

If ever General Hospital touches on Nathan’s paternal family background, which Cassadine are you rooting for to be his father?
