GH spoilers the week of May 8: Key Role Recast
This week fans will see Real Andrews as Marcus Taggert. The audience has been wondering where this hyperreactive parent has been while his daughter Trina Robinson (Tabyana Ali) is missing and in grave danger.
Look for him to share scenes with Trina’s mom Portia Robinson (Brook Kerr).
General Hospital spoilers the week of May 8: Where Was Taggert?
It may be splitting hairs, but hot under the collar fans wanted Marcus to be there when his daughter was rescued from the clutches of evildoer Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaugnessy). Or at the very least, be onscreen and present wringing his hands and tearing up the PCPD.
Instead it was her presumed other father, Curtis Ashford (Donnell Turner) who went off to Greenland to rescue her. It makes sense that Curtis be involved and he will probably now learn that he is indeed her biological father. But, to ignore Marcus completely in all of the dramarama didn’t sit well with scores of GH fans. Duly noted.
