ABC comedy sitcom star Cristela Alonzo from the series named after her, Cristela (Fridays at 8:30PMEST) will be seen on an upcoming very special Valentine’s Day episode of General Hospital, it was announced today by the network.
Alonzo is admittedly a long time fan of the daytime drama series, and so the producers and writers have worked her into the story where she will play Port Charles’ Assistant District Attorney Natalia Rodriguez, who works for District Attorney Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner). In story, while at the PCPD, she has some questions for Det. Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) regarding a recent break-in. Realizing it is Valentine’s Day, they later open up about their loved ones.
In addition as previously announced, Baby Daddy duo Derek Theler and Melissa Peterman will also guest star on the Valentine’s episode as well with Derek playing a colleague of Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson), and Melissa playing an old friend of Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCiero) from Bensonhurst.
