Alexis Davis in the house! Two-time Daytime Emmy winner Nancy Lee Grahn is celebrating this Wednesday her 20th anniversary as part of the canvas and cast of ABC’s General Hospital!
Grahn who also appeared on One Life to Live and Santa Barbara has made Port Charles her home for two decades, and as viewers know is in the middle of front burner storyline right now.
Last week, Nancy chatted with On-Air On-Soaps about the latest plight of Alexis Davis, where her life is spiraling downward following her husband Julian Jerome (William deVry) being found, “not guilty” of all murder or attempted murder charges.
Nancy tweeted on her big day today: “20 yrs today on my beloved General Hospital & I still love my job. Imagine that? I’m one lucky Diva. “
And later Nancy posted a love letter to GH via her facebook that said: “Dear General Hospital, It was 20 years ago today that we fell in love. Our relationship has been nothing short of miraculous. To have found each other was hard enough, to have stayed together for 20 years in Hollywood is a rarity, but to still love each other after all this time, especially after I opened a Twitter account, is just beyond imagination. I am one lucky Diva. A happy home is a must to hold a relationship together. We’ve been so fortunate to rent our home at ABC (They’ve always been my favorite letters). Thank God we have a long lease because our child Kate has 4 more years at a very expensive college. Our home is in such a magical neighborhood, too. Who doesn’t want live in a Disney zip code? It’s always bustling with characters…and birds that dress me every morning. We are so blessed to reside in the happiest place on earth.However, like any marriage, it’s not always perfect. We’ve had our share of tough times. Sometimes I just didn’t have the words to express myself, but through it all, I never stopped loving you. I believe we’ve gotten through most things over the test of time by keeping it light. Really light. Like giant key-light light with pink tones that follow me wherever I go to keep things ‘fresh.’ May you always continue to light up my life….and my face.
All in all, we really are good together. So many wonderful things have come about because we found each other, and saw the value in each other. I’m so excited about this anniversary…and about my presents. I can’t wait to see the 40 X 80 photo of me hanging in the hallway outside of Frank’s office that you are giving me for an anniversary present, along with the life-size image of me that you had mosaic-ed into the brick underneath the General Hospital sign as you enter the studio. And thanks in advance for Maurice’s parking space. It won’t kill him to walk an extra 68 feet.
You know, I truly think our marriage has lasted this long because of all the wonderful people in our lives that have been there for us, and will never give up on us. In order to sustain a relationship like ours, it takes a village…or an ‘army’. I have so much appreciation for all of them. I hope they know how much. My beloved General Hospital, I couldn’t be more grateful for all that you’ve been to me and will continue to be. Did I mention that Kate has 4 more years at a very expensive college? I have loved every moment of our life together thus far. Here’s to us. Here’s to our family. Here’s to 20 years…….and 20 more.”
GH executive produer, Frank Valentini also shared the news of Nancy’s anniversary in Port Charles, tweeting: “Congratulations to Nancy Lee Grahn on her 20th General Hospital anniversary! It’s an honor to work with you!“
