Two powerhouse talents synomymous with General Hospital are staying put in Port Charles for some time to come, according to the series executive producer, Frank Valentini.
In a post at ABC.com on Monday, both Genie Francis (Laura) and Finola Hughes (Anna) will continue to call ABC’s General Hospital home, with both actresses extending their time on the daytime drama.
Frank Valentini who made the announcement in a statement related on keeping these two Daytime Emmy winners on the canvas: “We are thrilled that Genie and Finola will continue to make General Hospital their home for years to come. These enormously talented actresses have created timeless characters that resonate with our fans.”
Currently on-screen, Anna is having a very difficult time emotionally with getting over the murder of her beloved Duke (Ian Buchanan), and her shooting in cold blood of his killer, Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise). That one act is causing havoc for the rest of Port Charles and most of all, Anna! And as for Laura, she knows the secret that could blow sky high Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) and Elizabeth’s (Rebecca Herbst) plans to keep “Jake” in the dark from knowing his true identify. Will she keep quiet even at the wedding of Liz and Jake? What story might Laura find herself in next? Who might she have a romantic love life with?
So, excited to hear more Finola and more Genie on GH? What storyline do you hope these fan favorites get a chance to act and tell on the ABC soap? Let us know in the comment section below!
