Chandra Wilson Returns To GH For The Nurses’ Ball

Photo Credit: Hutchins Photo

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!!!!

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… Read more »

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 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… Read more »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
