Titanic meets Port Charles.

Gloria Stuart (Catherine, GH)Oscar-Nominated Gloria Stuart to Guest Star on GH
Includes Major Scoopage

Academy Award-nominated actress Gloria Stuart (Titanic) sets sail for a guest-starring role on ABC Daytime’s No.1 drama, General Hospital.  Stuart will play Catherine, the wife of a legendary Port Charles gangster, in the New Year’s episode set to air Tuesday, December 31, 2002.

Here’s the set up.  When Carly (Tamara Braun) and Ric (Rick Hearst) stumble upon a speakeasy, Catherine (Gloria Stuart) tells them a haunting tale of New Year’s Eve 1926 that resonates with Carly’s fears for her husband, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and his dangerous business.  The story unfolds as characters from present-day General Hospital portray their 1920’s counterparts in vintage black and white scenes, paying homage to the “Roaring 20’s.”  Does that mean bathtub gin, the Charleston, and tons of long beads?  You’ll have to tune into General Hospital this New Year’s Eve and see!

Stuart was most recently seen in the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Titanic, which earned her a nomination for Best Supporting Actress. 

General Hospital consistently ranks as the highest-rated Daytime drama among key demographic of Women, 18-49.  In May of 2000, General Hospital made Daytime Emmy history as the only Daytime drama ever to receive the prestigious Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series a record seven times.  Created by Frank and Doris Hursley, Jill Farren Phelps is the executive producer. Charles Pratt, Jr. and Robert Guza, Jr. are head writers.

Freddie Smith Puts Mark On Character

As an openly gay character, Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) of Days of our Lives loves the challenge of "capturing the character."

"I do! It's exciting to be able to play this role. This is a big hot topic (being gay) in today's society,"  Smith said. "By portraying this character, I feel like I am making an impact on society, and be able to shed light on something that many people have a fear of."

This week Smith along with Chandler Massey (Will) have shared their first on air kiss. "This role gives me the opportunity to share the variety of experiences of what it is like to be gay," Smith said. "It's like do I come out? Do I stay in? This is about showing two sides."
