GH Fan Club Weekend ~ August 2015
Embassy Suites LA, Glendale, CA
By Nikky

Main Cast Event ~ Saturday, August 8, 9 a.m.

         

Ryan Carnes (Lucas Jones), Parry Shen (Brad Cooper), Dominic Zamprogna (Dante Falconeri), Emme Rylan (Lulu Falconeri), Robert Palmer Watkins (Dillon Quartermaine), Jeffrey Vincent Parise (ex-Carlos Rivera), & Nikky.

Saturday was the main cast event being held at the Embassy.  Buying my ticket late, I knew I would not be close to the front.  However, it was very difficult to see and hear.  The stage was not very high.  I purchased 8 raffle tickets and won 3 things.  Before the actors came out, they auctioned off some costumes.  They were Brooklyn (Emma's) 2014 Nurses' Ball dress; the newspaper from Faison's death & a script; TJ's Nurses' Ball hoodie; Duke's kilt (I must admit I had a thought to try to get this but did not); something of Luke's (couldn't hear or see what it was); Maxie's purse; either a shirt or jacket of Madeline; Sonny's shirt; 5 briefs used in the Magic Milo Nurses' Ball number; Dr. Wolfgang Von Schuler's tie and glasses; Dante's jacket;  and Fluke's shirt.  After the first actor was introduced, they actually introduced each other.  There was no real ‘MC' which was different from last year.  It was unique and kind of cool.  The actors came out in the following order: Robert Palmer Watkins (Dillon), Brytni Sarpy (Valerie), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma), Nicolas Bechtel (Spencer), Sonya Eddy (Epiphany), Rebecca Budig (Hayden), who did not stay for autographs, Haley Pullos (Molly), Tequan Richmond (TJ), Vinessa Antoine (Jordan), Rick Hearst (Ric) , Kathleen Gati (Dr. Obrecht), Ryan Carnes (Lucas), Parry Shen (Brad), Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix), Jeffery Vincent Parise (ex-Carlos), Elena Tovar (Rosalie), Chad Duell (Michael), Teresa Castillo (Sabrina), Bryan Craig (Morgan), Hayley Erin (Kiki), Michelle Stafford (Nina), Ryan Pavey (Nathan), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Emme Rylan (Lulu), Maura West (Ava), Maurice Benard (Sonny), Laura Wright (Carly), Jason Thompson (Patrick), Wil deVry (Julian), Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) who had to leave to feed her baby, Kin Shriner (Scott), Finola Hughes (Anna), and Executive Producer Frank Valentini. Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) and Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny) were there for autographs only.  

Hayley Erin (Kiki Jerome), Tequan Richmond (TJ Ashford), Haley Pullos (Molly Lansing), Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma Scorpio-Drake), Sonya Eddy (Epiphany Johnson), Brytni Sarpy (Valerie Spencer), Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny Zacchara), & Nikky.

Frank thanked everyone for coming and the cast.  He spoke about the new writing team.  Marc and Ryan were out in the crowd taking questions.  Some questions were if Frank paid attention to things like favorite couples' polls.  He said some of those decisions are not his.  Q:  Will Liz and Nikolas have consequences for lying about Jake/Jason?  A: Yes.  Q: Are you brining Robin back?  A: She is busy directing.  Lots of love for Ava.  Question about Ric's mom as she had just had surgery. He said she was doing ok.  Q: Will they do more live shows?  Everyone enjoyed them.  A: They would like to, but it costs a lot of money.  Frank gave away some Corinthos Coffee shirts, and it was finally time for autographs!  My first stop was Parry as I had never met him before.  Next to him was Sonya.  I told her that I loved her singing and besides having her sing more, she needs to be on GH more.  I also told her I thought she was funny on "Girl Meets World." She said I was very sweet.  Ryan (Carnes) was close by and had a very short line, so I went to get a quick pic with him again. Next on my stop was Jason and Brooklyn.  Brooklyn (Emma) seemed so happy that I wanted her to sign my book and be in the picture. I told Jason (Patrick) I'd see him in New Jersey. (Jason, Dom, and Emme also have an event in New Jersey in September.)  I went to see Tequan and Haley next (TJ & Molly).  I saw a new picture I loved of Haley so I purchased it before the event and had her sign it.  I told Tequan I met him two years ago, but I did not bring that Shutterfly book with me.  However, when I was at GHFCW two years ago I had not brought along my GH "People" magazine, so this was a great chance to get Tequan to sign it.  Since Jeffrey (Carlos) had come to the event, I went to get another picture with him.  At his event on Friday, one of the art pieces he was selling was a lion that he actually based off his husky.  I had forgotten to tell him about my dogs on Friday, so we discussed them.  He said his dog didn't actually die, he's just now living with his ex which is worse.  I went to see Hayley next and she yelled "Kiki" when she saw me.  I got another pic with her. Since my time was cut short with Brytni on Thursday, I went in her line.  She remembered me from the kick-off event.  She was very nice, and I'm glad I had a few minutes to chat with her.  We chatted about hair!  Robert (Dillon) was next to her, so I went to see him again.  He also remembered me from Thursday.  We talked about living on the East Coast.  I told him to come to New Jersey.  He told me to come to Boston and to come back next year.  Dom and Emme (Dante & Lulu) were my next stop.  I told Emme that I had met them last year, and I was from PA.  I told them I would see them at the event in New Jersey.  I had a few minutes left, so I made my last stop Brandon (ex-Johnny).


Michael Easton Event ~ Sunday, August 9, 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Michael Easton (ex-Silas Clay) & Nikky.

Sunday started with Michael Easton's (ex-Silas) event at the Embassy.  He said it was like an Irish wake and he had Guinness and Irish whiskey for everyone.  Keep in mind his event started at 10:30 a.m.  Yes, I drank some whiskey at 10:30 a.m.!  It was a bittersweet event.  It seemed like at points Michael had to fight back tears.  It was very clear it was not his choice to leave.  He said that he doesn't know who killed Silas.  He normally doesn't care about what his character wears, but he asked for the last shirt he was wearing to be changed.  They said no because they purchased a lot of them as there were many different people who came in and stabbed Silas.  He said Silas is dead dead.  He talked about working on "Days of Our Lives" and "One Life to Live."  He talked about how there were two bars the cast of "One Life to Live" would frequent.  When the show was no longer at that studio, both bars closed.  Someone asked how he got into acting.  He had written a play while living in New York.  They didn't have money to pay actors, so he acted in it.  Someone from NBC saw him.  She said it was the worst play she'd ever seen, and yes, she knew he wrote it.  However, she said he should come to the studio, because he was a good actor.  He didn't call her at first, but a few weeks later he did and ended up on Days because of it.  He said he's been lucky with all the ladies he's worked with.  He wants to write a follow-up to 18 Whiskeys.  He also wants to write a children's book.  He said he doesn't know what will happen next in his personal life, but he does not want people to stop watching General Hospital.  He did not feel comfortable going to the main cast event -- he went to the beach and built sand castles.  Michael said John McBain only ever had one pair of shoes.  The costume department kept resoling the shoes.  He was even wearing them at the event.  I purchased one raffle ticket and won.  It was time for the individual meet and greet with Michael.  He remembered meeting me before although he didn't remember my name.  For the fact that I only met him once, that was extremely heartwarming.  Michael always gives you his full attention when he talks to you.  I wished him luck and told him things would work out.  I think both of us at that point were fighting back tears.  He gave me a hug. I got him to sign a few things and got a great picture of us together.


Kelly Monaco Event ~ Sunday, August 9, 3 - 6 p.m.

        

Kelly Monaco (Sam Morgan) & Nikky.

 

A few hours later was Kelly Monaco's (Sam) event at the Embassy.  A fan asked how stars were called to the set.  Kelly said it's actually by item number, and you are responsible to know what numbers you are.  Fans asked Kelly lots of questions on Sam and Jake/Jason.  How will she react?  How doesn't she know?  Kelly kept saying that Sam doesn't know that Jake is really Jason.  Kelly joked that she liked to frolic on the beach with friends (recently photos emerged of her and Billy Miller (Jason/Jake) on the beach). Kelly said she liked playing Calivia better than Siam.  She was upset over Michael Easton leaving.  She discussed Dancing with the Stars.  She said she doesn't like to watch herself.  She's not on social media a lot, because she's afraid she'll give something away.  I was one of the last people to meet Kelly, so I didn't have much time to talk to her.  I purchased one raffle ticket and won.


Karaoke Event ~ Sunday, August 9, 9 - 12 a.m.

             

Ryan Carnes (Lucas Jones), Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr/Kiki Jerome), Parry Shen (Brad Cooper), Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix DuBois), & Nikky

The final event of not only the night but of GHFCW for me was Karaoke at the Embassy.  Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix), Parry Shen (Brad), Ryan Carnes (Lucas), & Kristen Alderson (ex-Starr/Kiki) were there.  The event started with them singing "My Girl." They joked that was all they had planned and were going home for the night.  After another karaoke song, tables were brought up one by one to sing with the actors.  After a few tables, the lip syncing competition began.  Parry went first with "The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)" by Ylvis. He came with props and all! Ryan was up next with "Since You've Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson.  When the song started, there were no words (for Ryan to lip sync to).  When Ryan got words, there were no lyrics.  At some point, the entire audience just started singing.  Kristen was next with "Uptown Funk" by Bruno Mars. Last, but not least, was Marc with "Good Vibrations" by Marky Mark – including taking off his shirt!!  There were more tables doing karaoke.  My table agreed upon "Shake it Off" by Taylor Swift.  When it was our turn to sing, we found out they didn't have it!  So we got stuck with "U Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer.  If you think you know the words to this song, you are wrong!  The rest of the event was whoever wanted to get up and dance/sing, you could.  This was not an event for a meet and greet.  At points people would kind of just grab stars or start lines.  I went over to Kristen, since I hadn't been able to see her all weekend.  I told her I was the other Kiki from last year, and she remembered me.  I got a pic with her and got her to sign my Shutterfly book from last year.  It was getting late, and I knew I had an early non-GH morning, so I went to see Ryan one last time.  I made him take a selfie with my phone; he took two.  I got a hug and told him I'd see him in New Jersey.  (Obviously not knowing the event would be canceled a week before it was supposed to take place.)

I'm one of those people who doesn't do well with change, but I didn't mind the venue change for this year's GHFCW.   It was another fun year catching up with friends and stars and meeting new ones!
