Our Performer of the Week is General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn!
Nancy Lee Grahn is such a powerhouse actress! Her performance throughout Alexis’ latest downfall has been incredible...and heartbreaking. It’s hard to watch someone you care about struggle and you just want to reach out to help. So, when Julian tried to offer his support we hoped that it would work but as the pair’s dark past came back to the surface we realized that wasn’t going to happen. Alexis took her anger centering around Neil’s death out on Julian, blaming him for the stepping stones that led to his demise...and her own addiction. Nancy has played Alexis’ raw pain in such a believable way that it makes us truly ache for her.
Our Honorable Mention goes to The Bold and the Beautiful’s Matthew Atkinson!
Oh, boy! The Bold and the Beautiful’s choice in storyline for Thomas certainly has fans talking. Lol. While the plot may not be our thing, there is no denying that Matthew Atkinson is doing a phenomenal job at portraying Thomas’ descent into madness! The actor has the rare ability to fall into the darkness of his character with ease and poise that has only been done by few others in the world of soaps.
