GH’s Genie Francis Talks Laura Then and Now on ‘A Spoonful Of Paolo’

Courtesy: ASpoonfulofPaolo

In an al- new episode of his web-based series, A Spoonful of Paolo, which is an interview show based on having your dreams come true, host Paolo Presta was beyond thrilled when he was able to visit the General Hospital studio and chat with GH icon, Genie Francis (Laura).

During their conversation, Francis talks about Laura’s strength of character and survival skills through the years, in that she is now the mayor of Port Charles, had survived being duped by Kevin’s evil twin, Ryan, and more throughout the years she has played the legendary character.

In a touching moment, Genie is shown a clip from 2015 when Presta interviewed her longtime co-star, Anthony Geary (Ex-Luke, where Geary reveals his thoughts on what made Francis so good and successful in the role of Laura, and why she was the perfect scene-partner opposite him for so many years, and how he was very protective of Genie in their early days in Port Charles.

Watch the full interview below.

Paolo always does such wonderful interviews and this was no exception. He’s a real fan and it shows in his knowledge and appreciation of General Hospital history. Genie has been one of my favorites for years. I was overjoyed when she returned after her last unceremonious departure, and I’m glad they’ve finally been giving her some story that is worthy of her talents.

There is a great interview with Maurice Benard from 2016 on Paolo’s channel as well that I came across in watching the Genie interview. Definitely worth checking out for MB fans.

Now before everyone jumps on me. I love Laura as much as anyone, but I would just love to see her dressed as befitting our Madam Mayor.I am so sick of that long striped duster/coat she usually wears and the big sweater/shawl cover-ups, etc. So what if she’s a little heavy. There are plenty of becomming, fashionable things for her to wear. Look how they dressed Tracy and Traci on Y&R. Laura is so attractive, so get the wardrobe dept. busy with some new clothes for Laura.

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
