Those rumors proved once again true as over the weekend General Hospital fans were investigating former One Life to Live and Days of our Lives actress Holly Gagnier’s facebook page, and if you look closely it said on the May 27th post “Big announcement coming soon”. Today, GH viewers learned that Holly is the next actress to play the role of Jennifer Smith!
Gagnier has even posted a picture with herself and GH icons Tony Geary (Luke) and Genie Francis (Laura) whom she shares scenes with this week, as she takes over the role of crime boss Frank Smith’s daughter, Jennifer Smith on the ABC soap opera. Gagnier plays the role once taken on by Lisa Marie, Roseanne Barr, and Sally Struthers … quite the predecessors!
Holly told Soap Opera Digest on her turn as Jennifer Smith: “I really had probably the most fun I’ve ever had on a soap!”
Daytime fans remember Gagnier as Cassie Callison on One Life to Live and Ivy Jannings on Days of our Lives!
