We said it back when General Hospital first aired it’s 52nd anniversary, which eventually became mostly responsible for the ABC daytime drama series winning the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series this year, that the young actors playing a Young Patricia (Chloe Lanier) and a Young Luke (Joey Luthman), were stellar, and we hoped GH would find roles for them down the line!
Well, today a big part of that came true when ABC Soaps In Depth broke the casting news that actress Chloe Lanier is on her way back to GH in the new contract role of Nelle! Look for Chloe to first appear on-screen on the August 5th episode.
SID also relates that that the soap is being very tight-lipped as to details of the character of Nelle, and what brings her to Port Charles, and who she is connected to.
One thing is for certain, Chloe Lanier blew us all away with her performance as the younger version of Dee Wallace’s Patricia Spencer in her scenes with Tony Geary (Tim Spencer), Laura Wright (Lena Spencer) and Luthman, and if this new part is well-written, Lanier should definitely excel in the role.
Lanier can currently be seen on DirecTV’s series, Kingdom.
So, what do you think about the casting news of Chloe returning to GH? Who do you think Nelle will be related to, or brought on to the canvas for? What storyline could she be involved in? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
