Look who’s coming back to Port Charles! Now that Laura (Genie Francis) is delving into her past after realizing she has two half-brothers (Cyrus and Martin) she never knew she had, look for her mother and longtime GH favorite, Denise Alexander to return to her signature role as Lesley Webber.

Denise last reprised her role of Lesley back in 2019 and had visited a few other times in 2017 and 2013.  Laura’s mom  was first on the daytime scene back in 1973 and Alexander played the role till 1984.  She was recurring from 1996-2009.

Will Lesley have ammo on Gordon Gray to help Laura bring down Cyrus?  Soap Opera Digest reported the nwws.

No word yet on Alexander’s first airdate, but stay tuned.

Excited that now Lesley will be back on GH and part of the story with Laura? Comment below.

Best casting news to start the new year!

While in town, Lesley needs to give a smack down to Nikolas for faking his death (they were always close). She also must have some witty repartee with Monica. Hopefully they give her some lines to indicate she’s been in frequent contact with Lucky since both are supposed to be in Europe.

Will they further dive into the David Hamilton murder, or is that subplot being dropped?

At 81, Denise deserves kudos for braving the Covid protocols to return right now.

Well of course she’s back. It would be impossible to tell this “ancient history” back story of Gordon Gray being Laura’s father without Lesley’s input. I don’t expect Cyrus the Virus to treat her very well, obviously. Probably will blame her for whatever his daddy did.

I’m SO glad! I’d stopped watching years ago but I was a devout GH fan as a kid and into the 90’s when Laura and Luke returned. I don’t know who these men are but it’s good to see Michael E. Knight. It’s difficult to understand where the characters I like are, but for Denise I’ll definitely tune back in!

This excites me. I hope they do it justice. Denise Alexander as Lesley has always been my favorite character on GH.

Great to see Dr. Lesley Webber returning to GH! Hope she makes it over to the Quartermaines for a run-in (or two) with Monica Q!

Ok everyone, I haven’t watched it in years, but have decided to join in again as I’m retired and have the time, but I haven’t been able to find it. I do not have cable. What station is it on?

Will look forward to her return. I’m going to guess that she’ll be in peril from Cyrus since he blames Laura for his own mother’s kidnapping.

It would be wonderful for Leslie, Monica and Audrey to have some scenes together!

Denise Alexander may have gained some years, now at 81 but she sure hasn’t lost any of her acting abilities. She’s still as sharp as ever. I don’t remember her having such a good sense of humour but she was incredible with Cyrus. That tiny woman going toe to toe with this big man was a treat for sure with Laura looking on so afraid for her mom.

She is as beautiful as ever, noticed her speech is giving her some issues. Is her disease progressing?

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.
