Here’s the latest casting news from the ABC soap.
The week of March 5, 2018
Tristan Rogers is heading back to General Hospital as WSB sleuth Robert Scorpio. Look for the actor to be involved in a meaty new plot beginning in the spring. Rogers starts taping his first scenes on March 19. He last appeared on the soap in January 2017.
Meanwhile, Genie Francis, who was sent out of town as Laura in January after her contract with the show expired, could soon be returning to the fold.
In a recent podcast with Daytime After Dark, ABC executive Nathan Varni noted that the GH writers are working to create a new storyline for the veteran actress. Of course, it all hinges on Francis, who would have to agree tor return for it, since she’s now a recurring player.
Michael Leone has been getting some air time as Cameron, Elizabeth’s (Rebecca Herbst) son, courtesy of his TV mom’s almost-wedding to Franco (Roger Howarth).
