General Hospital is full of youthful talent. Over the years, child actors have gotten their start at fame on ABC’s longest running television drama. The 61 year old Soap Opera showcases these children’s acting skills with the potential to grow along with the show, or build their skills and talents then move onto other projects. Either way, child actors can ultimately become major characters as they get older.

The Iconic SORAS

However, not all child soap stars are so lucky. In fact, it’s very common for a daytime drama to play around with the ages of these characters. The daytime community and its audience likes to call this action, SORAS. Which stands for Soap Opera Rapid Age Syndrome. Therefore, one day little Bobbie Sue could be a 2 year old, then before you know it the child is miraculously a 15 year old attending PC High. While no Bobbie Sue actually resides in Port Charles, you can get my drift.

As for Emma Drake, General Hospital has stayed relatively true to the character’s actual age until recently. Still, Emma has not been SORASed with a recast with Silzer in the role. GH recaps recall that Emma Drake was born on November 4th, 2008, which makes her 15. I remember this vividly as I was pregnant at the same time as Kimberly McCullough’s character, Robin Scorpio Drake. Coincidentally, my daughter was born on October 17th, 2008, just before Robin gave birth to Emma. Unlike Emma, my daughter Lola is 15. Although they were born in the same year, Emma is meant to be about 22 years old at this time.

According to General Hospital news, Emma’s original birthday was changed from 2008 to 2006. Then it was revised again to 2005 and finally settled at 2002. In real life, GH news reports confirm that Emma’s portrayer Brooklyn Silzer was born on April 27th, 2006. Evidently, Silzer is approaching her 18th birthday!

Almost 18- GH’s Brooklyn Silzer Crowned Prom Queen- Living The American Teen Dream

According to General Hospital news and spoilers, Brooklyn Silzer’s life seems as sweet as it gets for an American teen. The General Hospital star is just shy of her 18th birthday and has even more to celebrate. Silzer’s recent Instagram post reveals exciting news about her personal life. Reportedly, Brooklyn Rae Silzer shared photos with friends as she lives her day to day teenage life. She’s living the American teen dream after being crowned Prom Queen!

General Hospital News and Spoilers: Brooklyn Silzer On Emma Drake’s GH Return

What a surprise! Real ones know exactly how to bring a friend out of a funk, even if it’s temporary. Thanks to Robert, Anna was reminded of all that she’s thankful for. So, is Emma Drake back in Port Charles temporarily to brighten Anna’s Thanksgiving, or is she here to stay?

There’s no doubt that Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) is a true friend. Even more than that he is loyal and authentic. He’s there for Anna in good times and in bad, and he’d never betray her trust. On the other hand, Valentin Cassadine claims to love Anna but doesn’t think twice about compromising her well-being to suit his needs.

General Hospital recaps highlight the recent events that lead to Anna’s less-than holiday spirit. Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) has been down in the dumps after she accidentally shot Charlotte Cassadine (Scarlett Fernandez). Since Anna’s melancholia set in, she planned to spend Thanksgiving alone. Well, Robert couldn’t bear to see the mother of his child sulk in the dark, alone. So instead he took action and did what he could to cheer her up. Now that’s a friend.

General Hospital spoilers and rumors tease that Emma Drake and Cameron Webber (William Lipton) return and get swept away by romance. However, GH news has yet to confirm any rumors that claim Lipton’s returns GH. Additionally, Brooklyn Silzer is back, but the question is how long.

GH spoilers and news reports reveal Brooklyn Silzer’s statement regarding her GH status. Recently, Silzer spoke with Soap Opera Digest regarding her GH return. “My mom told me I was jumping for joy,” She admitted. GH spoilers reveal that Brooklyn Silzer also disclosed the duration of her time at the Daytime Emmy winning drama. “I was so excited to be back and see everyone! I was there for two days, and I was so glad I got to spend a little extra time with some of my favorite people, like [on-screen grandparents] Finola [Hughes, Anna] and Tristan [Rogers, Robert].”

Sadly, it looks like the all grown up Emma Drake was only here to brighten her grandparent’s holiday.

What Is Brooklyn Silzer Up To?

Reportedly, the 17 year old has been applying to nursing school. “I’m pretty busy with school,” Silzer explained. “I’ve been applying for nursing school. That takes up most of my time. I’m taking pretty hard classes this year, but I’m hoping to stay local for college,  maybe I can come visit General Hospital more often. That would be really cool.” It’s kind of an ironic career choice she and admits that her time on General Hospital “definitely inspired” her career path. She continued to divulge her reasoning, “ever since I started, I’ve known I wanted to be a nurse, I think since I was six years old. I always said, ‘I want to be a nurse when I grow up,’ and it just stayed with me, and I’ve become more inspired as I’ve been doing volunteer work throughout my high school years.”

General Hospital news and spoilers report that Silzer conformed that she’s all about visiting GH more often. It’s obvious that her experience as Robin and Patrick Scorpio-Drake’s daughter has been a positive light her life, along with her GH family.

General Hospital News And Spoilers: Kathleen Gati Celebrates GH Milestone!

Dr. Liesl Obrecht’s (Kathleen Gati) character has come a long way since she arrived on the scene as the most dreaded woman. What she had done to Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) as a way to get back at her mother, Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), was considerably unredeemable.

General Hospital recaps explain how Liesl had Robin captive while making it look as though she had died in a lab fire at GH. Robin’s mother Anna, her husband, Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson), and daugter Emma Drake (Brooklyn Silzer), along with Mac Scorpio (John J. York) and many other loved ones mourned her alleged death for years.

It’s safe to say that Dr. Obrecht has turned a new leaf. Although far from squeaky clean, Obrecht is now a contributing citizen as she works as a Doctor at GH, and has a loving bond with her daughter, Dr. Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud), along with boyfriend Scotty Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms), and more.

General Hospital news and spoilers reveal Gati joined the cast of General Hospital on July 31, 2012. General Hospital spoilers reveal she has shared a photo and related caption to her Instagram account, announcing her 10 year anniversary with the almost 60 year old soap opera.

We are so happy Kathleen has been a part of General Hospital for a decade, making Port Charles a lot more colorful. She is an amazing woman on and off screen! We at General Hospital Blog are proud to say, meeting Kathleen Gati was our absolute pleasure!

Is Duke Lavery Alive?

DukediesLast May, just shortly after Anna (Finola Hughes) and Duke danced at The Nurses Ball, little did they know it would be their last. Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) was killed by Carlos River (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) by the order of Julian Jerome (William DeVry). In turn, Duke’s death has caused a striking series of events from Anna acting out of character and shooting Carlos to avenge Duke’s death. Which also lead to the current story line involving DA Paul Hornsby (Richard Burgi), and now that Carlos has been revealed to be alive, this opens up an entirely new avenue for Anna in regard to making sure Carlos pays for what he has done.

However, General Hospital rumors have been swirling that Duke Lavery is actually alive. Duke has been a hot topic lately in Port Charles as Anna and DA Hornsby are up to their necks in involvement with Carlos Rivera and everything that’s been going on since Anna discovered he was alive.

Follow us on Instagram!

Since it turns out that Anna didn’t kill Carlos after all, even though she intended to do so because he killed her love, Duke, fans are beginning to think it is also possible that Duke is still alive.

Anna is in a bad place right now. She is stuck in the middle of DA Hornsby’s botched operation, she is withholding information from Jordan and has asked Jordan to give her a few weeks to get things straight, she is missing Robin, Emma, and Patrick, as well as Duke. This just might be a good time to give Anna some unexpected happiness by having Duke stroll back into her life.

What do you think, could Duke actually turn up alive? Is Paul Hornsby behind it all? Let us know your thoughts and comments! Share with your fellow GH fan friends!
