Denise Alexander Making A Return To GH As Lesley Webber!

Photo Credit: Hutchins Photo

A longtime GH favorite, Denise Alexander (Lesley Webber) is making a return to the ABC daytime drama series, just in time for the holidays.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Lesley will be back in Port Charles in December.

The last time fans saw Laura’s (Genie Francis) mother was back in 2013.

We wonder what Lesley will think of the man in Laura’s life, Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom)? 

Glad to hear Denise is heading back to GH for a bit? Comment below!

Best news ever!!!!!

It’s about time! Lesley not being mentioned the past few years has been awkward, as she should have been there for her family when Nikolas died.

Wednesday’s show did a good job of foretelling upcoming storylines. Nathan’s father, Brit’s return, Lulu’s job are on the way. Even Sam’s one-liner about Danny’s obsession with Annabelle II set her family up to move into the Q mansion. Danny can play with his Uncle Leo?

Man Landers has pronounced officially over and Andre seems to be wrapping up. Onward and upward!

And with the end of “Man Landers,” can we now see Nurse Amy to the door, too??? Unless she is being set up as a loony tune with a “Fatal Atttraction” for expectant babydaddy Nathan, she basically has no purpose except to hound poor Chet for the rest of days. Dude deserves better than that!

It’s nice to see vets return…especially as some of the vets still on the show do not get any respect or can’t keep a relative— poor Liz Weber- 2 sisters, a brother, a father and mother, a grandmother and she’s on her own with three boys. No one visits, no one calls. I’m glad Laura is getting ANOTHER family member visiting.

You seem to forget, the boys are taken care of a lot by “Grams” Audrey.

Danny and Scout are taken care of by Chief of Staff and Heart Surgeon 70 year old Monica…but we see her on screen. Gram is only mentioned as a plot device to explain the boys off screen. That isn’t family. Even Ava mob princess has family. Even Nelle is distantly related to Carly! Poor Liz.

Rachel Ames who played Audrey is almost 90. Perhaps she’s retired? 😉

Yes, always! And she and Genie will have some heartwarming scenes. She’ll love Kevin with Laura. And will Jonathan Jackson (“Lucky”) be back now that Nashville is cancelled? We need some more family for Laura!

Can’t wait to see “Lester” back. Hope we see some more good Monica vs. Lesley scenes like this one from 2013: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qR6_DiNnAHk

This is WELCOME NEWS!!!

Whenever GH decides to honour its history, the show is on the right path. Sadly, these “episodes” are few and far between.

Anyone lucky enough to have seen Ms. Alexander as Lesley Williams Faulkner Webber at any time during her long and storied tenure was indeed lucky and had great viewing experience! I remember when Ms. Alexander was one of the first “soap hoppers,” as she left DOOL to create a new role on GH. She was front and center from day 1. She always entertained…

To have Ms. Alexander on screen again with Genie Francis — especially in 2017 — is as good as it gets!

I am so glad to hear this. I always wondered why Leslie wasn’t around when some of the older characters were brought back. I want to see some scenes between her and Monica and talk about some of the past they had when they weren’t quite so friendly with each other. Anything to bring Monica into story.

Harry

Me too, James. I propose that Leslie stays in the Quartermaine mansion as a house guest and we viewers will be privy to witnessing witty tet e tets transpire between Monica and Leslie.
Monica will always be that “tramp” who had a torrid affair with Leslie’s husband, Dr Rick Webber.

Yes!

Still wish she had return to Days 50th two years ago and revealed to be Ann’s mom,,,anyway, she will be back for Laura’s wedding?…will Scotty catch the flowers again like he did when Laura married Luke???

Those were the best episodes – when Genie took over the role. Their mother-daughter relationship is really one of the best in soap history!

Leslie is running the Russian clinic where Jason was held prisoner!!!

Yeah, there’s a snowball’s chance in my back yard that could happen… but if they really wanted a “shocking twist”, that would do it, wouldn’t it?

(now watch the fan fiction sites run with this rumor……)

IVE BEN WAITING FOR DENISE EVER SINCE GENIE RETURNED THIS LAST TIME..THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN THESE 2 ACTRESSES IS AMAZING ,IM GLUED TO MY TV WHEN THESE 2 SHARE SCENES,,,WHAT A GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFT TO THE G,H FANS,,
AN DRAMATIC STORYLINE FOR THESE 2 STELLAR PERFORMERS WOULD BE THE ANGEL ON TOP OF THE TREE BUT ILL SETTLE FOR A FEW SCENES,,WELCOME HOME DENISE

I’m hoping her return is more than just for a bit. Four of her veteran co-workers had 40 year anniversary’s this year (Leslie Charleson, on consistently even if recurring as of now; Genie Francis, Kin Shriner, Jackie Zeman), and if GH has gotten one thing right it’s little salutes to the show’s history here and there, some better than others. Monica and Lesley have patched things up and it would be nice for Lesley to see certain aspects of Monica that have made her more like Lila than the Monica of old. Denise’s daytime career goes back to the early 1960’s, so having her return is like catching up with a long-lost aunt you haven’t seen in years that reminds you about what life and family are all about.

Ann

It would be good to see her again……long overdue I think

She looks too young to be Laura’s mother.

Delighted! Hope she has scenes with Laura, Lulu, and Monica, too. And wouldn’t it be fantastic to see Audrey back for a few days?! Would LOVE it! And what about Gail? Leslie, Monica, Gail and Audrey playing bridge one night, discussing how their families have changed over the years….cue the flashbacks. Love it!

Jamesj75
Jamesj75

Rodd, awesome commentary! I totally agree with your suggestions. Having Audrey back, for whatever reason, would be wonderful. And we haven’t seen Gail in far too long. The bridge seen you promote would be gold! Akin to the Golden Girls…

Are you reading, GH producers and writers?

I am so happy to hear Denise is coming back. She was the reason I got hooked on GH. I so wish they would bring her back for good. She is Soap Royalty. I am so happy.

Really looking forward to Denise Alexander’s return – she has a great presence and warmth about her that she brings to her role, along with alot of conviction. Similar to Genie Francis in some ways.

I have never heard of or seen a Denise Alexander (Lesley Webber)..
She is just another Newbie to me..

cmp874

She should not be. She and Scotty Baldwin are the only two characters left on the show currently (that I know of) that were created by Frank and Doris Hursley, the duo responsible for creating GH in the 60s. However, while other actors have portrayed Scotty prior to Kin Shriner, I don’t think any other actress played Lesley.

Steve

She’s far from a newbie. Since Rachel Ames is retired, Denise is most senior cast member who can return a she debuted as Lesley in 1974. Laura’s mother, Lulu’s grandmother, great-grandma to Spencer, Aiden, Rocco and Charlotte. Former nemesis of Monica. Lots of connections to the current canvas.

Id like to see Laura reflect some on her her growth as a person and and as a romantic Partner by having a rewardingg couple of scenes with Leslie and or Bobbie reflecting on her History with Luke as a way to honor the Myth that is Luke and Laura’s past with respectfully

Denise Alexander has been woefully misused every since Lesley was brought back from the dead all those years ago. I grew up watching her powerful performances in the 80’s, and was underwhelmed by the way she has been written. A disgrace to Ms. Alexander and her talents.

Violet Lemm

She was a wonderful actress in her time as Lesley Webber, mother to Laura and grandmother to many. The last time she was on, she had trouble walking, but still lovely at her age. You can always check her out on Google or Utube, if you are interested. It’s always fun watching the old shows from way back, especially ones you missed. I was watching the one when Jason came back from college, and a lot of the old Luke & Laura ones. What fun!

Anna to the Rescue As Finola Hughes Returns To General Hospital

If you caught the end of Monday’s episode of General Hospital, just as Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck) was ramping up her efforts to threaten Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) on the pier, she is stopped in her tracks by none other than Anna Devane!  And with that, it signals the return of all-time GH favorite and powerhouse actress, Finola Hughes, who has been off the ABC daytime drama series for an extended period of time.

With the return of the mighty Hughes comes some intriguing romantic storypoints in that: the man who proposed to Anna before she left Port Charles, Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton), has found out that he is a father to Hayden’s (Rebecca Budig) child.  Previously, he thought the child had died, but Hayden lied and thus the two have moved from icy towards each other, to growing closer.

What will happen when Anna finds out what has gone in Port Charles while she was away?

ABC and GH released this week’s promo which teases a moment where Anna announces she has returned while Finn and Hayden are together.  You can check that out below.

Now that Finola is back, what are your hopes for Anna in story? Finding the bad guys and finding love with Finn, or will her story take another twist and turn that no one saw coming? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

General Hospital Receives Honor From Ruderman Family Foundation

General Hospital was one of five television shows that has been named and honored by the Ruderman Family Foundation for their accurate depictions of people with disabilities.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the soap received the recognition for the casting of Maysoon Zayid who portrayed Shilohs’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) lawyer, Zahra Amir.

Zayid is an actress and disabilities advocate living with cerebral palsy. In addition, Maysoon is also one of America’s first Muslim women comedians.  Zayid said landing on GH was a “lifelong dream,” after finding it difficult to land roles due to her disability.

Along with GH, the foundation’s seal of authentic representation went to: Netflix’s Tales of the City and Raising Dion, and BBC/HBO’s Years and Years and Audience’s Loudermilk, great company for the ABC daytime drama series to be included with.

Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation expressed in a statement. “By giving credit where credit is due in Hollywood, we hope to inspire a broader, longer-term, industry-wide sea change when it comes to authentically casting actors of all abilities.”

In addition, Frank Valentini, executive producer of General Hospital stated: “Our goal has always been to provide stories that are authentic and relatable for our viewers. Having the opportunity to welcome Maysoon Zayid onto the show was exciting for us. She is an incredible talent and was a perfect fit to guest-star as Zahra Amir. It takes all kinds of people to tell a story; especially those that are rich and entertaining enough to resonate with our audience.”
