If you have seen today’s episode of General Hospital, there is a big reveal at the end of it! And for those that haven’t, the news has broken by now!
None other than Daytime Emmy winner Michelle Stafford (Ex-Phyllis, Y&R) has indeed joined the cast of the ABC soap opera as had been rumored for months. She is playing the role of Nina Clay, the “presumed” dead wife of Silas Clay (Michael Easton)!
Daytime Confidential spoke with GH head writer, Ron Carlivati about the secret scene that was filmed to usher in Stafford’s new role! “GH has been on hiatus for the past two weeks and Michelle doesn’t really start taping until we resume. But we realized that as soon as she did, the news would be out there long before her episodes began airing. It was actually Frank’s idea to try to slip her into an earlier show that had already been written and shot, so we could take everyone by surprise. So he snuck her into the studio recently, at the end of the day, to tape the one scene you just saw. That was inserted after the fact. We’ve been sweating it out ever since that it would stay under wraps!”
So, what do you think of Michelle Stafford finally coming to GH as Nina? Let us know your thoughts as this surely will cause trouble for the Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Silas relationship and more!
