While Alexis Davis and Robert Scorpio have barely interacted on General Hospital, their portrayers, Nancy Lee Grahn and Tristan Rogers, appeared together in an episode of a famous sci-fi series — and the actress shared some fun images from her days as a big-headed alien.
Nancy Lee Grahn Throws It Way Back
That episode, The War Prayer, of Babylon 5 in question, first aired on March 9, 1994. Grahn was playing Shaal Mayan while Rogers played Malcolm Biggs — a character probably named as a nod to regular cast member Richard Biggs, who played Dr. Stephen Franklin and is also known to fans of Days of our Lives as Marcus Hunter — father to Jada Hunter played by newcomer Elia Cantu.
Daytime Emmy winner Grahn shared posted a picture of herself with Rogers on Instagram, writing, “Back in the day when [Tristan Rogers] and I were dating. I was going through my alien phase & he was into that so it worked for awhile. But eventually my head just got too big for him and he dumped me.” Her tongue-in-cheek post confused many of those commenting.
The reason for her look back in time was explained on her official Twitter account. “Since #Babylon5 is trending,” she said, “I thought I’d show you my very large bald head. That was considered super hot on the planet I came from. I’m sure the fact that my ears are attached to my neck is a sign of something awesome too… selnecktive hearing. (Comiconcomedy) enjoy the chk.”
It sure would be fun to see Alexis and Robert start a flirtation in Port Charles. Even with the alien makeup, it’s easy to see a spark could easily turn into a flame for these two seasoned pros. Enjoy the images from Nancy Lee Grahn on her sci-fi past with the posts below.
