Longtime fans of General Hospital were over the moon when it was revealed that Denise Alexander was on her way back to the ABC daytime drama series to reprise her role of Dr. Lesley Webber, mother of Laura, played by Genie Francis.

With Laura’s story with her new found half-brothers central to the current storyline, it’s a perfect time for Alexander to be back in Port Charles.

Tricia Sheldon, a fan of General Hospital who loves the vintage years of the show and more as she notes on her Twitter account, was able to reach Alexander, who is not on social media.  Sheldon showed her the outpouring of love the actress received, and the excitement on her on-screen imminent return.

In turn, Denise wrote a message to Sheldon to share publicly.  Part of which read   “Wow! I am breathless! What a wonderful surprise!  I am beyond grateful for all the kind and amazing and funny and sweet and caring and supportive and truly delicious messages. I have never felt so appreciated  and it brought tears and laughter reading each one.”

Alexander added, “I do not have a clue as to how to communicate on the Internet on Twitter.”  She then noted, “I would love to reach each and every person who wrote about that first day back. But I don’t even know what the rules are.  I’ve a vague sense that there is a limit to how long a message can be,but do not know how to reach anyone. Is there any way you could forward at least my thanks to everyone?”

Denise closed with,  “I love each and every message, and am full of gratitude.”

You can view the communication and Denise’s heartfelt message below.

Now let us know what you thought of Denise reaching out to all of the fans, and how grateful she is that viewers are excited to see her back on-screen via the comment section,

Agree on hoping to see Dr. Webber in new scenes with Dr. Monica Quartermaine and others like Bobbie and Scott. In her initial return scene on GH at the hospital, why didn’t the hair folks at GH do her hair better?

Denise Alexander deserves all the accolades and appreciation! She is truly soap royalty, an icon! Having first appeared on GH in 1973, she was one of the lead actresses of the show during the 1970s, along with Valerie Starrett, Rachel Ames, and Emily McLaughlin. She continued on into the 1980s, then became a recurring character, on and off, from that point forward. Younger (or newer) viewers who don’t have a familiarity must be impressed by Alexander’s acting skills and penchant for humor — glad they kept that part of her character. Focusing on Laura (including her mother) is the right… Read more »

It was wonderful seeing Denise back on screen as Lesley. Her scenes going toe to toe with Jeff Kober as Cyrus were tremendous fun, reminding him “That’s Dr. Lesley Webber to you!” I love when GH honors the history of the show by featuring the beloved veteran characters, which overall I think they do a pretty good job with. God bless Denise, she looks fantastic for 81! Hope we see more of her going forward.

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
