Next Friday, June 3rd GH fans should be on the lookout for soap veteran Robin Riker (Ex-Beth, B&B) when she makes her on-screen debut as Rebecca Budig’s (Hayden) on-screen mother, Naomi Dreyfus.
Riker is set to hit the canvas with a character she described to Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstands now) as: “She was a wife of a Bernie Madoff-type character and was strong and could stand up for herself, but she did love her daughter. She was a mutlifaceted character, which is the thing that interested me the most.” In addition, Riker, who had never met or worked with Budig previously, said it was not difficult at all connecting with her as her on-screen daughter: “We’re having a little lovefest. She’s a doll! She’s gorgeous and smart and sweet, so it’s lovely to work with an actor like her.”
As to just how Naomi gets into the mix is yet to be seen. Will she be involved in the Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) mystery, since Hayden is up to her neck as one of the prime suspects and mom comes to the rescue … or … is she just there to retrieve the diamonds? Could Naomi having anything to do with Nik’s body disappearing?
Will Naomi pique the interest of gentleman in Port Charle? If so, who do you think it will be? Share your thoughts on Riker’s upcoming emergence on to the GH canvas in the comment section below!
