Jessica Tuck Returns This Week To General Hospital

There will be a Cassandra Pierce sighting in Port Charles, which means one of the best actresses we know, Jessica Tuck, will be back on your screens this week on ABC’s General Hospital.

Tuck, who became soap-famous for her role as Megan on One Life to Live from 1988-1992 and then went on to primetime television roles returns to the canvas as the evil Cassandra, a role she debuted on GH back in 2017.  Viewers last saw her pop during Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha’s (Sofia Matteson)vacation.

But this time look for Tuck to mix-it up with GH icon Genie Francis (Laura) in some major showdown scenes, when she holds the mayor and Curtis (Donnell Turner) at gunpoint on the Haunted Star.  Will these two be able to get the on-the-run villainess locked up for good? Don’t necessarily count on it.

Of course, a man who both Cassandra and Laura have an interest in bringing down, Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) plays heavy into the story. But will Cassandra do a double-cross of a double-cross? Who else may get a dose of something potentially lethal that she has been concocting?

Jessica told Soap Opera Digest that when she found out she would be working with Genie Francis; “I was like Woo-hoo! Hot diggity!  I mean, like many people, I have been a fan of hers forever and ever and ever.  It was fun to meet the person behind the character I’ve gotten to know.”

Judith expressed to all that helped her have a successful career: “The fact is, if you were not in my life, the dream of this little girl sitting alone in her room in Trenton, N.J., reading plays and acting out Shakespeare passages, would never have come to pass. All of you have made and are continuing to make the powerful difference in my life and the lives of so many others  So, I say to all of you with deep and profound gratitude, thank you.  You remind me of who we all really and truly are. We are each other’s star.”
