Genie Francis appeared this morning on Good Day L.A., the popular Fox morning news program.  Previewing the moment Luke and Laura see each other for the first time in a long time on today’s episode, and hinting at the return of Kin Shriner as Scotty Baldwin, those were just a few of the topics discussed with the soap icon.

Returning to GH for it’s 50th anniversary, Genie revealed with all the classic favorites back from the GH’s heyday that it’s a lot of fun being back on set as it sort of the, “Who Carried The Show” Club – with everyone who carried GH from one decade to the other.

Genie also praised the tireless tenacity of GH executive producer, Frank Valentini and his efforts to keep General Hospital on the daytime landscape which has given the show its second life, the first being the Gloria Monty era, and now Valentini as Genie emphasized.

After Genie appeared on her Good Day L.A. segment she went online for the Fox 11 Google Hangout, where various fans of hers skyped in from around the world asking questions and getting to participate one on one with their favorite daytime actress.  Watch the two segment after the jump, and let us know if you are enjoying GH’s Genie’s return thus far?

    With Genie the only daytime actress doing talk shows, its proof GH is the hottest soap right now. FV and RC should open a school for how to do a soap opera. Y&R may be no. 1 but this is still the show to beat. Heres a few things id like to see happen on the show. Frisco returned to see Felicia and to catch up with Maxie because he’s dieing and in urgent need of a liver transplant. Will Mac be the doner and save his life? Ellie pretends not to regain full usage of her legs to hold on to Spinneli then dumps him after finding out he is the father of Spinnelis baby but finds out later she is also pregnant by him. Kristina and Johnny begin a prison romance and Kristina becomes pregnant which infuriates both Alexis and Sonny. Heather learns Steven Lars had a twin who was stolen from her at birth.(Karma). Blackie is the missing twin. Luke and Laura learn the real Rick Webber is still alive and being held by the Cassidines. Rick has been programmed to kill Luke and Laura if they ever came to his rescue. Bobbi and Noah rekindle their romance but he leaves her and she remains in PC with renewed fellings for Scotty. I know none will turn out this way, and are just suggestions for what i think should happen storywise.

    I also elimanted the part where i was going to add that Ellie and Kristina give birth the same day, and Sonny pays Dr. Brit to swicth the babys because he refuses to accept a grandchild fathered by Johnny but the baby switch is immediately revealed because Ellie had a boy and Kristina had a girl. lol.

    Genie has always been a class act. You’re right, Louisamay, the host is absolutely pathetic. Welcome back, Genie and Laura.

    I was SO thrilled to see Luke & Laura yesterday. That gleam in Luke’s eyes … Anna was right, Luke belongs with Laura, his greatest love!! I just wish Lulu & Dante didn’t come and spoil the moment. Sighhhhh…

    I’d also like to ad that I actually quite enjoyed Connie & Sonny too.

    Genie is such a class act!!! I just love watching her doing interviews and it’s awesome how ABC is finally promoting GH!! They should give Genie a long term contract because she is the “Heart of GH ” and brings class to the show!! She even looks more beautiful than when she started!

    Genie Francis is looking so good & I like her new hair color & hair-do! She is in great shape! Her husband in real life is: Jonathan Frakes from the t.v. series Star Trek: The
    Next Generation. Capt. Picard called him #1……I don’t think I like Laura to much with
    Scotty. She say’s she loves Scotty only because she saw Luke kissing Anna. After that
    she made a phone call to Scotty and said let’s do it .I don’t think Laura will go threw in
    marrying Scotty! Her & Luke had that great love in a lifetime that doesn’t go away! He was her soulmate! That’s what I think.

    That great love that only comes once in a lifetime! Laura won’t marry Scotty. That is
    what I think…..

    It’s so wonderful to see Genie Francis back on GH. My gratitude to the production and writing team is profound, and I trust their creative vision for Laura’s future storylines. I think Mr. Valentini & Mr. Carlivati understand that Laura is and has long been the emotional epicenter of Port Charles.
