A longtime fan favorite is returning to GH to help them celebrate their 56th year on the air.  According to EW.com, look for Denise Alexander (Lesley Webber) to be back in action and in scenes with her on-screen daughter, Laura (Genie Francis).   Alexander returns on-air on Tuesday, April 2nd.

In story, Leslie returns to Port Charles to honor the late Dr. Gail Adams Baldwin (the late Susan Brown) when Gail’s final wish was to have all her friends gathered together.  Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), who is Gail’s lawyer sets up the event.

In a sneak peek video, Lesley and Laura realize how Gail’s passing has brought up memories from their past at that time they were both working at General Hospital.  Gail was also a doctor.

Laura says to her mother: “I remember when I was a candy striper. And I was so proud that my mother was a doctor in the hospital. I was really fortunate to have a role model like you.”

Alexander first played the role of Lesley in 1973.  Her initial run on GH was from 1973 to 1984 ,and again from 1996 to 2009. Denise then made guest appearances on the ABC daytime drama series in 2013 and 2017.

So, what do you think of Denise Alexander returning for a memorable occasion on GH? Comment below!

SHOOT ! I – get it – have been IMPRESSED with Genie Francis… PLUS whatever the hair and makeup w/dress. has been doing – KEEP IT UP. this “beloved” character is that strong a hold, for; Shelly AND Chris… that to not just bring Denise Alexander for the 55th Anniversary… but to build and solidify around Laura.. will only strengthen her. PLUS she’s just one of the LATE GREATS . Recurring role .. if she’s up to.. is tantamount to , at the very least bringing us a core veteran family. Lesley / Laura / Kevin / Spencer …. could… Read more »

Always impressed with Genie–and I agree re hair and makeup and dress. Love Genie’s longer hair (reminds me of her in earlier years) and her natural makeup.
So good–she has that glow! Go, Genie! I would love to she her also dressed down in a pair of jeans and a casual shirt. Delicious!

Love that they are bringing back Denise Alexander. She has always been my favorite. Wish they would keep her around and find Lesley and Monica a man to fight over.

She’s always welcome. I was just speaking of her the other day, when she (and I) was very young. Speaking of men, I wonder if she’ll have her good looking Italian gentleman with her. I may be old, but not dead yet!

Can’t wait. By the time this is over, it could be anyone’s guess. Maybe it depends on who he’s done the most harm to. We know Krissi will be devastated when she sees him for what he really is.

It will be Willow who kills him. After she finds out that the baby she had with Cult Boy (more than likely the product of a rape) and gave up for adoption is actually dead, she will have a complete meltdown, and as a result, will not go to prison for killing Hank or Shiloh or Jim Jones or whatever the Hell his name is.

Then she and Mikey can raise his kid together sappily ever after….

Willow is also Nina’s daughter

That seems likely…. since her hatred of Nina is practically a carbon copy of the hate Sam had for Alexis before she knew she was her mom. Or Billie & Kate on Days of Our Lives, for that matter.

Another one of those well worn soap cliches that you can usually see coming from 666 miles away.

Wonderful! Can’t wait to see her and Genie together again. They’ll bring some much-needed warmth to what has become a very harsh GH.

This is a momentous occasion in daytime TV, as true soap royalty makes a return to a soap! It was newsworthy back in 1973, when Denise Alexander joined GH after a stint as a popular character on DOOL. Her GH tenure and subsequent returns have been exquisite gifts for the viewer. This is one episode I won’t miss!

General Hospital is making a big mistake by not having these Legends are still in good health like Chris Robinson and Leslie Charleston Denise Alexander carat diamond people would love to see these people back on the show and wouldn’t have more viewers and it has now but they just can’t seem to figure that out

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
