The week of May 2, 2022
Nancy Lee Grahn, who recently underwent back surgery, has already returned to the set and begun taping scenes as Alexis Davis. Her first day on the job was April 27, so fans shouldn’t expect to see her on-air for a few weeks.
Meanwhile, Jackie Zeman reported she’ll soon be back in Port Charles as Bobbie Spencer via a social media post. Expect to see the character this month.
Evan Hofer debuts as Dex this week when his character approaches Sonny (Maurice Benard) for a job. Hofer is best known for his role as Chlodwig on the BYUtv series, Dwight in Shining Armor.
Michael E. Knight pops back in as attorney Martin Grey. And Chris Van Etten makes another appearance as Chet Driscoll, as he explores his connection to Terry Randolph (Cassandra James).
Also, Brian Norris is been playing Felty. The character is the photographer who has been harassing Sasha (Sofia Matson).
General Hospital History
GH made its debut in 1963 and is the second longest-running daytime soap opera in American history. The longest-running soap is Guiding Light. While it’s not the longest-running serial, General Hospital is the longest-running soap opera currently on air.
The daytime drama outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households! From legendary Laura’s (Genie Francis) four decades on and off and back on as the show’s leading heroine, to Anna Devane’s (Finola Hughes) exploits, to Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and his mobster activities, GH certainly knows how to please their viewers.
GH: Bringing the Drama
More than five decades of gripping drama as well as love in the afternoon have kept this ABC daytime soap on the air and winning Daytime Emmys. It is one of four soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).
