Hayley Erin will take a detour from Port Charles on The Love Boat soon. No, not that Love Boat cruise we’re all used to, but the General Hospital star will appear on an episode of NCIS titled “Love Boat.”
According to Soaps.com, Erin will play a civilian passenger on a Naval carrier while the NCIS team investigates a body that falls overboard. Expect to see her on October 11.
Erin is not the only GH performer to land a role on the hit primetime series. Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny) had a pivotal role on an NCIS episode, along with the legendary Hal Holbrook, back in 2006. In 2008, Kathleen Gati (Dr. Obrecht) played a character who ordered the hit that murdered Lauren Holly’s (ex-Julie, All My Children) character, Director Jenny Shepard. In 2010, Rena Sofer (ex-Lois, now Quinn on B&B) played a recurring character on the show, Attorney Margaret Allison Hart.
Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix) booked a gig on sister show NCIS: Los Angeles. Last year, Parry Shen (Brad) also appeared on NCIS: Los Angeles. There must be something about that CBS crime drama franchise that attracts your Port Charles pals.
We don’t expect Erin’s role to take her away from playing Kiki for long. Currently, the character is embroiled in a love triangle with Morgan and Dillon, but that triangle has cooled off over the last few months as Kiki has tried making things work with Morgan. However, expect things to heat up with Dillon once again as Morgan becomes more erratic and dangerous the longer he’s unwittingly off his bipolar meds.
