One Life to Live fan favorite, Jessica Tuck, who played Megan Gordon Harrison from 1988-1993, and then again during multiple heavenly visits after that in 1994, 2004, 2012, is headed back home to the day-part, but this time on General Hospital!

The actress who was part of the cast of HBO’s True Blood, and also had a stint on Days of our Lives as Madeline back in 2010, will first be seen on GH on tomorrow’s September 20th episode.

The casting news first came to a light with a special message from Tuck herself on the GH social media accounts saying that everyone should tune-in tomorrow! Check that out after the jump.

As to who Jessica will play, well, according to TooFab, the Daytime-Emmy nominated actress is taking on the role of Cassandra, the much talked about mystery woman from Valentin Cassadine’s (James Patrick Stuart) past that Anna (Finola Hughes) is looking for! Seems Tuck’s debut also corresponds with Steve Burton’s return as well.

So, what do you think of Jessica Tuck joining the cast of GH? Comment below!

Cool I’m assuming it is a limit run s/l.

love it.i have always loved her in one life to live.

Not sure what to think…not sure i care…big publicity build up over casting but when the person shows up it often goes downhill from there like Bassey, Depaiva and Buding t to name a few!!!

Jimh
Jimh

Valentin will probably have her hidden somewhere in the mansion…his insane ex…Nina will see a ghostly vision of a woman in white…then there will be mysterious attacks on Nina’s life ect

i don’t think it will play out that way since anna devane and finn are leaving the country to go where she is staying because she is involved with the jewelry thief story line…………………….ijs

The “lady in white” storyline was probably the worst of Wolf’s short reign as head writer. When Carlivati took over, he scuttled it with making her Helena’s daughter (was she 60 when she had her?) and having her mother murder her. Equally, non fulfilling.

Come to think of it wasn’t her name revealed to be Cassandra before she died? Heck, maybe you’re on to something.

Celia
Celia

Ahhhh, Jimmy….you may be describing any scene from Bronte’s “Jane Eyre”.
Rochester gets the girl, LOL.

Shay

@jimh…Well, if this ghostly “apparition” were to kill off Nina once and for all, then her presence–real or otherwise–would actually be greatly appreciated!

Shay
Shay

Well, well, well….yet another of Frank’s recycled OLTL-ers (and former ABC soapsters…) crashing Port Charles! Quelle surprise…NOT!

Celia
Celia

Ha!! Quelle coincidence, ma chere.
I say, when there are too many cooks in the kitchen, the minestrone is spoiled? Ok, so I just made that up. LOL.
But, Shay, that’s how I feel. I find this tasteless—too many new characters to handle. Simplicity works for me.
I assume this is temporary lunacy—-they will leave with the next new moon, in its first phase?
They will all end up in a Russian Mental Institution, run by Dr Bronsky’s brother, Ivan, next door to the “Reconstruction” Center.

Celia
Celia

Can’t keep track. While I do welcome characters from my other beloved, defunct soaps,…..hmmmm….I don’t know. As I said; too much, too soon. Whaaaz-up??

Soaphound
Soaphound

Celia, my head is spinning. Why more new characters who so many are underused, misused, not used at all, or unceremoniously dismissed? I would think the return of Mr. Burton would be enough for months of the bosses patting themselves on the back. The pain hits me a little lower.

Celia
Celia

LOL, Soaphound. You said it……this is a whirlwind of a storyline. As long as it doesn’t turn into a vortex….the payoff better be a good one.
I can say with certainty that Maura/Ava is superb….as always!!!! What a woman…what a thespian!!!!

Oh, what happened to Bronsky’s accent? Didn’t he have one?

Reed

I’m with you Celia, it’s always good to see our former favorites and I appreciate the loyalty of casting those that have done great work in daytime before. Always a bonus/treat and not “stunt casting”—why not put someone we already know in these roles? Although, I just got through watching daytime newbie Daya Vaidya’s (Martina Morales) turn as Carly’s divorce attorney and that totally worked. Also, totally agree with Soaphound and Timmm in working with what we’ve got (a terrific cast) and not neglecting our core (Quartermaines).

Celia
Celia

Agreed, Reed. I love seeing all my favorites—I wish—-, but not to an overwhelming point….”stunt-casting” works for me, as well.
Yes, Soaphound and Timmm know what they’re talking about—admire them both.

Angel

Love her!!!!

I hope she’s a Cassadine

I always liked her! !!!

su0000

Did she sign on or a guest??
how long??

I hope she kills Anna ..
Anna has become unbearable FF.. (what a shame)
If she kills Anna she will be my hero and that would be a good thing.

And to say..
Jason looks like a take off of Hannibal Lecter or Darth Vader, and that is just more lame,,
furthermore; if he were that extremely dangerous he would not be sedated sitting in a common area he would be sedated and locked in a room with a window LOL

Shelly and Frank can not stop writing stupid lame drama free stuff..
So, this Cassandra hmm lame or stupid or a winner?
And she better be a killer !

Soaphound
Soaphound

Oh, su000, how sadly correct you are. Anna’s character is a mess (blackmail? Really?) And that “dangerous man” in the clinic looks like a Ninja reject and about as deadly as the Flying Nun. Either of which I’d prefer.

dmr
dmr

Oh, I loved The Flying Nun (reruns) when I was little, haha!

Timmm
Timmm

I know, if 6 was so dangerous why isnt he locked away or have a caretaker with him at all times! LAME!

Celia
Celia

LAME, indeed, T. Not only that, but if there’s a risk of over-medicating him to death; why do it?
He should be in restraints, as you said…..I just wonder if this is a put-on for Ava’s benefit or if there’s a much more sinister reason behind the idiotic scenes.
I think Burton is acting the part very well….credible.
Yet, I am not happy….when faced with a challenge, I like to have some kind of purchase/grip on the situation….but, I am lost.
We are all making assumptions….hope one of us gets a clue.
Ahhh, well….still think it’s Nicholas with Jason 1’s face. But how?? Why??

Steve
Steve

Bite your tongue, lol. Thanks to poor writing, Anna may be in a dry spell. Frank needs to make good with Tristan Rogers and have him return for a bit to play off Finola.

Waiting to see if a spark ignites between FH and ME.

Oh, I love Tristan Rogers-great comedic actor.

Boy would it be great if Anna was finally taken out, she has become so annoying! Her bullying Finn just does not even add up. I have watched GH since the 80’s and been faithful to the show, but I am just about to turn it off for good. The story lines are not going anywhere and so many of the best characters are being let go. If you want to really let those go that serve no real purpose, I would suggest getting rid of whiny Sam, she to is one that has become annoying.

su, su, su! O, O, O,
Anytime you get Jessica Tuck–rejoice–she’s a class act–and she can act ( :))

But, “kill Anna”? What you been drinking, girl? Or smoking? LOL
Bless your heart!! 🙂

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

btw,, su, how do we know the current “Anna” is the real Anna (that we know and love! LOL)? Where’s that lowdown sister of hers? Might she have escaped again? Happens all the time on GH, doesn’t it? Just a little “bite” to chew on, perhaps?
H.m-m-m-m. Just saying, as they say. Think about it.

Celia
Celia

Oh, my gosh….su, I just had the best laugh!!!! Kill Anna?? HaHaHa….still laughing.
I do think this Anna/Finn thing is silly. I forgot….what are they trying to find out? With all the goings-on in PC and St. Petersburgh, I can’t keep a straight thought in my head.
I wish you could hear me…I am really laughing with tears here….at one in the morning—Hannibal Lecter and Darth Vader sinched it for me…..
Between you and Jimh, I don’t know what to do….
Who do you dislike more, Sharon or Anna?

Shay
Shay

It really was pure coincidence that we both used “Quelle surprise, not!” I was first at this thread when I utilized that phrase here, then I went to the Burton one and read your post which incorporated the exact same words!…I almost fell off my chair! LOL…I even replied to those comments saying so, amongst other things, but my response seemed not to land there…don’t know if you personally received it , but having said that, I also echo your sentiments about “keeping it simple.” The convoluted, nonsensical dead-end storylines are reaching the point of critical mass on GH….it’s time to just “stick to the facts, mam” and give us some tales that actually make sense!

I’m very confused because I just read a spoiler site that said this Cassandra is that Woman in White, that daughter of Helena’s that Helena killed. Jessica Tuck is charitably about 20 years older than that. Not to mention it wasn’t ridiculous that Helena had a 20 something daughter! Lol. What she got pregnant at 65?? So I don’t know what’s going on. I loved Jessica as Megan because she was part of so many iconic stories in her brief tenure at OLTL. Her week long death stands as one of the hallmarks of the entire soap genre.

Steve
Steve

Tuck would be age appropriate for Helena’s daughter, unlike the previous actress. If she is the same Cassandra, who is the daddy? Probably not Mikkos.

Shay
Shay

God help us all if it’s “Clusterfluke!” Hey, stranger things have happened! (And with the writers’ love of historical revisionism, Luke’s evil alter-ego could have existed way back into the ’80’s for all we know!)

dmr

I thought Helena’s dead daughter’s name was Irina? – something like that..

Celia
Celia

Lol, Jovin…too funny.
Perhaps, Helena became enceinte at 65 by divine intervention?

Celia
Celia

PS.
Now, isn’t that an oxymoron!!! Divine and Helena just do not go together…..How about Satanic intervention?

Jessica Tuck was terrific as Megan on One Life to Live. I really missed her when she moved on and was so happy each time she made a heavenly appearance. I wish her the very best at GH.

I think you mean she was terrific in the sixth season of Seinfeld as Bonnie, roommate of Scott and interested threesome partner girlfriend of George’s.

I would love to see Todd Manning and Blair back on screen, really miss that beautiful long hair of Todd’s. Todd was always interesting and so much more there than lately in the realm of Franco. I love the Bad Boy that Roger plays so much more than this weird twin story line. I have come very close to ending my 30 year run with GH, it is just pretty boring!!!

Timmm
Timmm

Oh great, the OLTL love fest continues! How about focusing on the freakin Quartermaines! Enough of these EX people to pacify Frankie boy!

dmr

Wouldn’t worry, Timmm-we’ll see her one day, and then won’t see her for a few weeks, at which point we will have forgotten all about her. Another dropped character and storyline.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
