Chandra Wilson, remembered as Dr. Miranda Bailey on the primetime hit Grey’s Anatomy, is reportedly heading back to General Hospital for her third guest spot – and third role. This time around, Wilson has been tapped to play Sydney Val Jean, an editor at Crimson magazine, and will appear during the show’s annual Nurses’ Ball.
Wilson first appeared on General Hospital back in 2014 as a patient of Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom). In 2018, she returned as Dr. Francine Massey, a therapist who tried to broker peace between Jordan (then played by Vinessa Antoine) and Aunt Stella (Vernee Watson).
Ingo Rademacher’s return as Jasper “Jax” Jacks is fast approaching. Word is Josslyn’s (Eden McCoy) dad will finally surface, next week. Stay tuned for more details.
