It looks like Laura’s mom, Dr. Lesley Webber, is headed back to General Hospital (GH) as actress Denise Alexander makes a return engagement to the show.
According to Soap Opera Digest, Lesley Webber will be around for the holiday season, her first appearance since 2013.
She’s certainly needed in Port Charles. After all, daughter Laura (Genie Francis) is planning to wed the new man in her life, Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom). Also, granddaughter Lulu (Emme Rylan) has a new daughter, Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez), whom she has yet to meet.

During Lesley’s time away, beloved grandson Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) was supposedly shot and killed, falling out of a window. It would be nice to see his family remember him and mourn their first holiday without him.
To that end, here’s hoping we get to see Lesley go toe-to-toe with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), the man everyone blames for Nikolas’s death. Lesley has always been a formidable opponent — just ask Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson)!
We also hope Alexander’s stay will be extended well into 2018. She created the role back in 1973, and was part of some of the greatest storylines GH has ever had.
Her generation needs more representation on the show and who would be better? Besides, Monica needs an adversary other than Olivia and we can’t think of anyone better.
