Grey’s Anatomy favorite, Chandra Wilson is checking back in for a guest appearance on General Hospital, but with a twist.  She won’t be reprising either of the roles she played before on the ABC daytime drama series.

Look for Wilson, who plays Dr. Miranda Bailey on ‘Grey’s’, to arrive for the annual GH Nurses’ Ball when she appears on the upcoming May 17th episode.

In it, she will take on the role of  Sydney Val Jean, the east coast fashion editor at Crimson magazine who will appear alongside editor-in-chief Nina Clay-Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) on the Nurses’ Ball red carpet.  Look for those two to go at in their commentary!

Previously, Wilson’s Port Charles stints have included roles as s one of Kevin’s patients, then as a marriage and family therapist.

PEOPLE.com first reported the news.   ‘Grey’s’ literally films next door to GH on the production lot in Los Angeles.

So what do you think of Wilson playing character number 3 on GH? Comment below.

I think she’s great and its now her “thing” to appear on GH as different characters, maybe one year all her characters can appear in one episode.

I dont really look forward to The Nurses Balls anymore..there are a few rare good moments but most in recent years seem more like Wrecking Balls to me…and doesnt Oscar die after he performs at the ball???

Amen, Jimh! “Wrecking Ball” is a very apt description of this over-hyped non-event which hasn’t been worth watching since the 50th anniversary celebration. Even that one was nothing to write home about—-storyline-wise—but at least it featured many of GH’s best characters from the past, which made it memorable. Since then, this yearly debacle has been nothing but a highly-amateurish mess that has failed to utilize the show’s most talented performer, bar none….Kathleen Gati’s hilarious Dr. O.! Put that spectacular crazy lady back in the NB spotlight where she belongs!!!!

Yes…KG needs to be a regular…

She certainly does, Jimh! Dr. O. remains the most creative and memorable character to come out of GH’s last five or six years, and as such, should be treated as the true treasure that she is in the uber-capable hands of Kathleen Gati! Liesl’s NB appearances are still some of the most unforgettable moments that perennial event has ever seen, and why she has not been afforded the opportunity to “crash” the stage each and every year in her own inimitable fashion is beyond me! Her cool and cunning machinations in order to always end up in the spotlight should have become one of the show’s “traditions!” I honestly cannot understand why providing this colorful character her well-deserved 15 or so minutes of fame once a year is such a difficult proposition! Instead, it seems that “stunt casting” always wins the day! Thanks, but no thanks!!!! Bring back that magnificent showstopper Obrecht for an encore NB performance!

I love Chandra and appreciate that she loves the soaps! I also think it’s kind of funny that she’s been on GH three times as three different characters. Will there be a fourth? And will she set some sort of record in due course? Stay tuned.

Jimh,and suOOO too,
Have been watching Grey’s Anatomy for years now. Thurs.nights. Try it, you’ll like it. I have to turn away during the O.R scenes though. I don’t like all the blood and guts. The personal SLs are really good, ongoing like a Soap.

I dont watch shows with blood and guts…the only things i watch at night are repeats of Everybody Loves Raymond and King Of Queens and very few other shows

I watch those too. Never get tired of them, no matter how many times I’ve seen them.

I wish the powers that be would spend the money they spend on stunt casting to make the Nurses Ball look like there are more than 12 people in attendance. Also…now is it mandatory that every action packed climax takes place on the same bridge with the same lower level for a pregnant damsel in distress? I am loving the writing on GH right now though! I don’t like all of the stories…but these writers are masters at layering stories and characters in slowly…and then weaving them into umbrella stories. I like the cult story! Its dark and disturbing…but its bracing and different and has real suspense and that What Next quality? I love when stories zag when you’re only expecting a zig. The actor playing Shiloh is just fearless and plays it so harmless and yet SO creepy too!! When he took his shirt off so randomly the other day…I laughed out loud at his brazen audacity and his bold arrogance! I know he is not really a long term viable character…and I think a Who Killed Shiloh story would I want to see her vent her rage on him…and lay some smackdown…but if she murders him then all her growth h would have been for nothing. awesome because pretty much the whole cast has motive!! Shiloh is not a murderer…but I think it would be twisted coolness if Shiloh and Ryan hooked up during the Nurses Ball or during May Sweeps. What if Shiloh hid or housed Ryan for some nefarious reason? We know Ryan will be back for one last hurrah…but I hope they don’t make it as predictable as having Ava kill him. I want to see Ava torture him!_ I want to see her vent her rage and unleash some smackdown on him! But to have her murder him just negates all the growth and progress she has made as a character. And I love Ava having friends! Laura and Ava should definitely become besties! Ava needs that anchor of good friendships. Its cool that Laura and Scotty are in this story!

I love the “Chief” at Grey Sloan Memorial . She can play any part she wants to.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”

According to the scribes: “There are a number of people in Port Charles who are in trouble and his character will have an impact on how their stories are solved or further complicated.”

Both Van Etten and O’Connor shared: “As we were writing his character, we found out that oh, we have even more use for him! It’s helpful to know who the actors are in this situation. We have lots of ideas on how we can expand his character and cross-pollinate his character.”

As to how long Knight will be sticking around Port Charles, that was not offered-up, but what was is that Michael’s new character will mix it up with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) with whom Knight worked with on All My Children when James played Will Cortlandt.
