I can’t tell you how excited I am to see Genie Francis return to “General Hospital.” The actress — better known to her fans as Laura Spencer — is returning to Port Charles on June 5. Now that Brette Sember has been recapping and reviewing “General Hospital” every week with her “Dear GH: We Need to Talk” columns, it’s renewed my lifelong love of the show.
The photo above, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, is a first look at Laura with her son, Nikolas Cassadine, played by Tyler Christopher.
I first started watching “General Hospital” back in the 1980s, during the days of Luke and Laura. My, how time flies! Luke has gotten extended time off from the show every year for many years, but he recently announced that he’s retiring for good. Sniff… we’ll miss you, buddy.
And we hope you’ll handle it in the best way possible, GH. We’re counting on you.
Here’s a little flashback.
