Holy cow! We did not see this one coming, but soapers, Y&R has just announced exclusively at EW.com that soap legend and Daytime Emmy winner, Genie Francis (Ex-Laura, GH) is coming on to the number one soap! Genie is set to play the mother of Cane Ashby and joining the soap as a series regular in May! Holy May Sweeps!
According to the post, “Francis will play the mother of Ethan Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard), who was declared dead outside his dad’s wedding last month and is now appearing as a ghost on the show. His sudden “passing” lathered up the fans, so the addition of Francis should reignite speculation that Cane will remain an integral part of Genoa City. (His ghost is expected to continue appearing throughout the spring). Francis will begin taping at the end of the month.”
And wait for it! Doesn’t this mean that Francis would reunite with her former Port Chuck co-star Tristan Rogers (Colin, and former, Robert Scorpio of GH) as the parents of Cane?
So, what do you think? Excited by the news? The future of Francis? Goddard? Rogers? Let us know.
