There are always General Hospital characters that fans either love or hate, or maybe they just love to hate them! These are usually mixed characters, characters that have good parts and bad parts, although they can be totally evil. Yet, they often bring excitement and drama to storylines and keep viewers “tuning in tomorrow” to see what crazy thing they do next! We would like to know who you, General Hospital fans love, hate, or love to hate and why!
Franco Baldwin (originally James Franco, now Roger Howarth) is one character that fans seem to be divided on, and for totally different reasons. Some fans don’t like Franco now because they feel he’s not dark and evil enough, some don’t like him because they still don’t trust him and view the redemption via brain tumor removal story as being bogus. Some fans like Franco since Roger Howarth took over the role and feel he’s been redeemed, and some liked Franco being dark and evil in the James Franco version. Others like Franco now because they’re Roger’s fans, and yet others liked him before because they’re James Franco’s fans.

Nelle Benson (Chloe Lanier) is another character fans seem to have strong opinions about. Many fans think she’s the “New Heather Webber” (Robin Mattson) because of all the similar things she’s done—especially since the baby swap storyline came up. Those who liked Heather seem to like Nelle as well, in a love to hate way. Some who don’t like Carly Corinthos (most recently Laura Wright) like Nelle in that she has brought karma back to bite Carly! Other fans hate her with a passion, some because they like Carly and others because of the harm she’s brought to Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell), Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes) and Brad Cooper (Parry Shen). Others think she brings a little excitement to the show when she’s on!
Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom) is another character that fans seem to be divided on. Some just don’t like that yet another dead character has been brought to life because they think the dead should remain that way. Longtime GH viewers don’t like him because they remember when he first came to the Port Charles canvas many years ago and tried to kill the good characters they loved! Later his twin Kevin Collins showed up, trying to cure Ryan even then! Others like the character because they like villains and dark and evil characters, others hate him for being a dark and evil villain. Jon Lindstrom himself has been quoted that he likes playing Ryan better than Kevin because Ryan is more interesting!

The last controversial character in this poll is Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart). He seems to be a character that means well but goes about things the wrong way! There’s no doubt that the quest to find his now ex-wife Nina Reeves’ (Michelle Stafford) long-lost daughter was a noble and kind gesture, but “conjuring one up” as Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) put it, to achieve that goal, not so much! Yet Valentin, as Franco, does appear to have a conscience and displays remorse and regret, as opposed to Nelle and Ryan.
Let us know what you think…cast your votes in our poll for whether you love, hate, or love to hate Franco, Nelle, Ryan, and Valentin!
