The Partridge Family mama, Shirley Jones has already taped her appearance on General Hospital, as had been previously announced. When news circulated that Jones was making a guest stop in Port Charles, fans began speculating that Shirley would play a character perhaps in the Silas mystery storyline!
But today, according to an item from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, some new scoop has emerged at what the legendary Jones is doing on the 50-year-old soap opera!
Shirley will play the role of Mrs. McClain, “a lonely widow who sees something strange and disconcerting while visiting her husband’s grave.” Mrs. McLain “comes across a suspicious gravedigger late one night at the cemetery and takes her suspicions to Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) at the PCPD, thinking this might have something to do with the fugitive the police are looking for.”
So this begs the question, will Mrs. Partridge err McClain be the key to solving where on earth is Carly (Laura Wright) thanks to loony tunes Heather Webber (Robin Mattson)? Jones appears on the February 5th episode of the ABC soap opera!
What do you think of the role Shirley is playing on GH? Last time Jones visited the world of daytime soaps, she played Collen Brady on Days of our Lives.
