    Jon Lindstrom deserves an Emmy nomination

    I've been aware of the actor's continued excellence, but this week, he blew me away! Ryan's expressions of "love" while Ava had a gun on him, and then his pure joy about the "future" they had once he realized she had no more bullets. Switch now to Kevin, who after aiding in the delivery of Esme's son; then bravely faced the body of his dead brother.

    He's a great actor. His ability to play both the evil Ryan and doctor Kevin at the same time is phenomenal.

      He certainly does! It can't be easy portraying two so different personalities and making them both believable.

        I pray that he gets one on the next award show for his twin portrayal.

        With Ryan now dead - it will be his last chance.

        Although he SHOULD have got one long before now.

          Jon Lindstrom is great...it takes a lot of skill to be able to play 2 totally different characters...I take my hat off to his performance...it was a job well done

            soaps have a long history of great actors playing dual roles Anne Heche on AW, Erika Slezak on OLTL just to name a couple!

          I agree, OP. I actually had tears with Kevin seeing his dead brother’s body scene. Those of us that have been watching from the beginning and watched the whole Ryan Felicia Kevin Mac storyline, it was a powerful ending, and all the players were fantastic. Jon Lindstrom, as always, had to do double duty and was excellent. I wasn’t expecting to be moved by the scene between Kevin and Ryan, with Ryan dead in the body bag. Then the scene with Mac and Kevin, then Felicia and Kevin. Just excellent- and Ryan was right: it had to be Mac who killed him. Great choice writers.

            He should’ve won the Emmy years ago!!! Unfortunately the Emmy awards voting system is just as screwed up as the president voting system in the USA!!!

              The only thing wrong with the presidential election was that one candidate refuses to accept that he lost.

            He would get my vote! He is so good at portraying the two brothers that I don't even think about them both being played by the same guy. The contrast today of him being in a birth scene and a death scene was amazing. As were his scenes with Mac and Felicia afterwards.

                I remember when Jon Lindstrom first showed up on GH. My first impression was that he was playing a minor character who wouldn't be around long.

                Boy was I wrong! He is a fantastic actor.
