Terry’s blind date on Valentine’s Day didn’t go quite as planned on GENERAL HOSPITAL, but at least it ended well! “The start of something romantic for Terry on GH has been something I’ve been looking forward to since I joined the show,” declared portrayer Cassandra James on Instagram. “Trans people are worthy of love in all its forms and to get to show that to a daytime audience is a great honor.”
At the cliffhanger of Friday’s episode, Terry saw Chet wearing a teal shirt and thought she was the guy she’d been chatting with on the app that she’d arranged to meet. And during the Feb. 14 episode when Terry discovered her mistake, James was live-tweeting along with the show and answering fan questions about her character and future storylines. “I’m a very patient woman as are the GH fans,” the actress said of a potential romantic storyline. “I’m in no rush but I hope Terry finds a love that beats the odds. ‘Us against the world’ kind of love!”
Naturally, one fan asked about the stunning blue dress that Terry wore for her blind date at Charlie’s Pub and wondered if the actress had any input in choosing it. “I am so happy to say that so many departments at GH are open to input and collaboration,” James revealed. “The wardrobe department knew how excited I was about this date for Terry and everyone made sure I looked and felt my best.”
Although James has enjoyed playing scenes like inspiring Liz to scream cathartically in her car and the powerful emotions surrounding the death of her patient, Oscar Nero, the actress has been really looking forward to getting Terry some love in the afternoon. “Shooting this Valentine’s Day two-parter has been some of the most rewarding and significant work for me on the show,” she confessed.
When Terry’s real blind date went horribly awry, Chet stepped in to get rid of the jerk by pretending to be her jealous boyfriend. And after Tanner beat a hasty retreat, Terry and Chet sat down to enjoy a drink together and get to know each other a little better. “Who knows what’s next for Terry and Chet?” James mused. “I can’t wait to find out!”
Stay tuned to GH to see what happens!
