Kelly Thiebaud
Kelly Thiebaud has kept General Hospital fans wondering what she'll do next as the prickly Dr. Britt Westbourne. As GH celebrates its 50th anniversary this season, BFTV took the opportunity to get to know the actress behind the blackmailing doctor, and unsurprisingly, she's much more amenable than her alter ego.

"Playing Britt has just been a good time. Something you can't do as an actor is judge your character, but it's very easy to do that. At times I'd catch myself [saying] 'I can't understand why Patrick would want to be with me! I'm a horrible person!' But she's so fun," Kelly said wi...

'Supernatural' (7.16) Recap: Bad Moon Arising Indeed

3/17/2012 8:30am EDT
padalecki, ackles
I can count the unwatchable episodes of “Supernatural” on one hand—“Bugs,” “Ghostfacers,” and “Red Sky At Morning” immediately come to mind. I will have to add this week’s installment, “Out With the Old,” to that extremely short list. To be fair, it has distinct displeasure of being the first episode after a three-week long hellatus, it also followed the stellar, instant classic of “Repo Man,” so I admit the expectations were great, but sadly, the episode failed more than succeeded.

There has been a lot of press about this upcoming episode, because it was begins the culmination of cruci...

Wishes Of A Television-aholic: 'Glee'

8/12/2011 9:58am EDT
glee cast
Believe it or not, this television-aholic actually scoffed at the early promos of what would come to be FOX’s mega-hit, “Glee.” The show looked silly and childish, and I thought it would be cancelled before the fourth episode. My initial assumptions were glaringly and wonderfully wrong. “Glee” is the television equivalent of cotton candy—brightly colored, lighthearted and achingly sweet. It makes me feel inspired and happy while most of my favorite shows make me want to curl up in the fetal position and ugly-cry.

Unfortunately, the last season was a little more sour than sweet thanks t...

Her arc piqued so much interest it helped the storyline to be named Soap Opera Digest’s best of 2010.

In a phone interview, the witty Brown fondly describes Lisa as “just really manipulative.” It’s a departure from her earlier roles...
