||I totally love this. I hope it's true and that she's a new Q. MW vs Tracy Q. would be awesome. Hmmmm.....Maybe AJ is married??? LOL|

Basically a given unless they have AJ throw her out of an ambulance then back over her.
I'm happy about this news, she's such a good actress. I hope its true. I think she will be Lauren Frank's mother. I'm still hoping that Kristen Alderson isn't Lauren, but that would be pretty good casting if they did end up being mother and daughter. I think Roger Howarth and Maura West would be great playing off each other too if they go that route. I'm hoping they don't bring RH's character in and throw him with Carly instantly, but I think RC is too smart for that. Seems like GH is going to continue to be VERY interesting and I can't wait to see which direction they take things.

||Interesting. I know absolutely nothing about her but wonder if she could be Sarah Webber, Elizabeth's older sister? Sarah and Nikolas did have a fling back in the day. I read somewhere that Ron wants to fill up the Q mansion again so maybe a long-lost Quartermaine?|

||I'm in the minority - but I think the cast is too bloated. I want more airtime for vets rather than newbies. We already have air hogs like Sabrina, Britt, Connie/Kate. I don't mind Ellie - because even though she's new, she's in a supporting role - slowly allowing us to know her rather than have her pushed down our throats.|

||I don't care if the cast is bloated if you have a chance to land an actress like Maura West you take it. I myself would love to see her on GH. She was totally wasted and miscast in her role on Y&R.|

||I don't think KA will be Lauren Frank because she'd be related to Michael - and I son't see them getting over the Chad/Kristen pairing, if not right away then eventually.|

The cast is big, but don't really think its too bloated. I do agree if you can get Maura West, then you get Maura West. Also all of the people you named are hardly ever on GH anymore. Kate/Connie was specifically shipped away so Brenda (a vet) could get a storyline for the anniversary. I don't want Kate/Connie back, but she'll be back soon. Hopefully with reduced airtime. It seems like they realized something wasn't working with her considering she was shipped away.
Britt doesn't really get much airtime either. Not sure I would consider her an air hog at all. But I've become a huge fan of her mother, Dr. Obrecht. Britt and Sabrina work at the hospital, along with Ellie so if most of their scenes are there I'm not upset. The show has been lacking hospital drama for years and if they had to bring in new doctors and nurses to do it, then so be it.
I'll accept that Sabrina was an airhog, but even she has been reduced A LOT. The propping seems to have slowed down massively since her makeover, even though she was only on like twice after that happened. Now that she's kinda on a level playing field with everyone else instead of being treated like a teenager I'm hoping for improvement there.
The vets ARE the focus of this show right now and everyone else is in a supporting B or C storyline.

||I'm reading rumors that Maura West will play the wife of Micheal Easton's new character whatever that is, and the noobie Bryan Craig will play his son. Again all speculation, but if true at least they won't be throwing him at Sam right away.|

The Diane Jenkins murder mystery was horribly written, IMO.
MAB writing destroyed her on the Y&R.

||I hope her stint at GH is better than Y&R. That was a f*cking tragedy. AWFUL doesn't even describe it. Watching her seduce EB was cringe worthy. However, her stint on ATWT was wonderful. I'm keeping my fingers crossed she doesn't get miscast again.|
