Stuart has years of soap experience under his belt and you would think that there would be little left to awe him—not the case! He knows talent when he sees it and he sees talent and skill in Fernandez more and more every day.
In particular, these two had reached a gut-wrenching point in their storyline when Valentin thought it would be best to exit his daughter’s life for her own good.
It came after Charlotte decided to put a snake in Ava Jerome’s (Maura West) purse.

When Valentin asked Charlotte about it, she said she learned her revenge tactics from him! He was appalled. Then she reminded him how he had thrown Ava overboard in anger and he nearly lost it.
Working in soaps he said, “you find a lot that the scenes that you least think you’re able to do end up being the most satisfying.”
That was true for the scene in which he discovered the damaging effect he was having on his daughter and decided to give up his fight for custody.

He says that Scarlett was awesome in those emotionally wrenching scenes. “That moment where she put her hand on my cheek when Valentin was being arrested, that was her choice, and it just wrecked me.”
“It was just such a cool, grown-up choice that she made.”
Overall he said Scarlett is making more mature acting choices and he’s waiting for the day when she decides she wants to stay in the scene instead of being sent to her room or for ice cream while the grown up’s talk.
When the show returns after hiatus, will we see an even more polished and mature Charlotte in Port Charles? Be sure to tune in and find out!
