Genie Francis back on GH? BEST soap news in a loooooooong time. I trust there will be a compelling story and Laura will finally take her place as a permanent presence in Port Charles. She is among the most important legacy characters and the restoration of the Spencer family (an dso many others) is so important to the renewed success of this venerable serial.

My mistake. It was Christopher Cross who sang ‘Think Of Laura’.

Wonderful idea–re playing “Think of Laura.” The song is so evocative of her character.
Hope they will use it again. How many memories that song brings back. I’m so eager to see Genie–and to see her slip right into the role of Laura. I hope TPTB and the writers do not disappoint all of us–nor Genie–who have waited so very long for Laura’s return.

Glad Genie is returning! Brings back the ‘golden’ days of GH from my youth. Very heart warming and nostalgic. Who did not know about Luke and Laura whether you watched GH or not. Something comforting and familiar about her return. Yes, you can go home again.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”

According to the scribes: “There are a number of people in Port Charles who are in trouble and his character will have an impact on how their stories are solved or further complicated.”

Both Van Etten and O’Connor shared: “As we were writing his character, we found out that oh, we have even more use for him! It’s helpful to know who the actors are in this situation. We have lots of ideas on how we can expand his character and cross-pollinate his character.”

As to how long Knight will be sticking around Port Charles, that was not offered-up, but what was is that Michael’s new character will mix it up with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) with whom Knight worked with on All My Children when James played Will Cortlandt.
