General Hospital (GH) spoilers for the week of May 15, 2023 reveal that Charles Shaughnessy is off the canvas as the imminently bad Victor Cassadine. We hesitate to say the character is dead, and prefer to say he is simply gone due to soapy shenanigans in which every character has at least nine lives.
Victor did look dead when last seen in a body bag, being scolded by his son Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart). But the Cassadines especially have a wonderous way of cheating death.
The role of bad guy Victor was originally played by Thaao Penghlis (Tony DiMera, Days of our Lives) and Shaughnessy took over in 2021. Both men have starred on Peacock’s DOOL.

Last week Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) was basically bullied by Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) into reliving one of the greatest traumas of her life. As such Sasha will promote the latest Deception product on a home shopping channel where she had an on-air meltdown. Because this is what friends are for?
Sasha will interact again with Flora Gardens (Susan Batten ex-Luna, One Life to Live) and Haven de Havilland (Morgan Fairchild, ex-Sydney, The City). The duo were last seen in these roles in 2022.
General Hospital spoilers: The week of May 15, 2023 Brings Recast News
Holiday Mia Kriegel will begin airing as Molly Lansing Davis later this month. The recast is temporary and necessitated by Haley Pullos being in an auto accident. The lovely and talented actress is taking time off to recover and Kriegel has been tapped to fill in.
Kriegel’s credits include primetime series Animal Kingdom and Bull.
News of Pullos’ recast comes on the heels of bombshell info that the role of Kristina Corinthos Davis has been exited by Lexi Ainsworth. The role will now be played by Kate Mansi (ex-Abigail DiMera, Days of our Lives).
That’s a lot of change coming to the trio of daughters of Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn). It’s been speculated that Kristina will be a surrogate for Molly, so tell us what you think of this storyline and casting changes GH fans!
