Y&R’s Genie Francis on “The Talk” chats Genevieve, Oprah & Tristan!
Genie Francis who is set to debut this Friday on The Young and the Restless, stopped by to chat with the ladies of The Talk on today’s episode. During the conversation, Francis revealed how it was Oprah who was the reason she landed the role of the sociopathic Genevieve Atkinson. As had been reported previously, Francis who appeared on Oprah’s soap legend show made it known she was not interested in going back to General Hospital to play Laura as a victim again. Enter, Y&R’s executive producer and head writer, Maria Arena Bell, who saw Francis on the show and nabbed her for a new role on the number one CBS soap, and the rest is as they say, Genoa City and soap history!
In addition, Francis discussed being teamed with her former GH castmate Tristan Rogers, (Colin, Y&R) as her new on-screen hubby, and the group chit-chatted on Genie’s long time marriage to Jonathan Frakes.
