HomeTV24Rena Sofer Turns Down GH Offer Luke Kerr August 15, 2008 24, General Hospital, Heroes, One Life to Live, The Bold and the Beautiful 24 Comments Carolyn Hinsey has a new column at New York Daily News that is primarily about One Life to Live’s Gigi and Rex but the biggest tidbit of info was buried at the bottom. According to the column General Hospital approached Rena Sofer about returning to Port Charles as Lois, last portrayed by The Bold and the Beautiful’s Lesli Kay. Sofer, who has a recurring role on NBC’s Heroes and appeared in the last season of 24 will be next seen in Rock Slyde, a movie about "a down and out private detective engages in a turf war with a upstart quasi-religious cult."

If the writing was different it would be great to have her back and Wally Kurth, as well. Log in to Reply Trisha August 15, 2008 Well if they bring back Wally Kurth as Ned and Adrianne Leon or some other actress to play to part of BrookLynn, then it would be nice to have her back. It would even be great to see her with her one time BFF, Brenda (that is if they can figure out whether she’s coming back or not). The problem is without those 3 characters, the only other person she was connected to was Sonny, and well there are too many characters brought in just to be connected to Sonny. Log in to Reply Dr.House August 15, 2008 She was great in Heroes and I know she’s going to be on the 3rd season as well so I think it’s a good career move to keep doing what she’s doing. But it would be great to have her back on GH. Log in to Reply lizznJas4ever August 15, 2008 I bet they wanted her to come back as a friend of Connie Falconeri(kate). Still, would prefer Wally Kurth to be with her. Log in to Reply season1217 August 15, 2008 Oh yeah lizznJas4ever, I forgot about Kate, she would know her! It would be funny to see Kate’s reaction at seeing Lois and Lois accidentally spilling the beans about Kate’s true identity. Lois would definitely give this show the spice it needs. Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 August 15, 2008 Didn’t she have a romance w/ Jax at one point too? I’d like to see her give Carly a run for her money Log in to Reply season1217 August 15, 2008 Daisy, you are bringing back memories. I believe she’s the reason Jax was bought on the show in the first place. He was supposed to be involved in her and Ned’s story line. He was trying to get w/ Lois but when Rena decided to leave the show they had his character begin to fall for Brenda. Oh man, good times, good times! Log in to Reply ladyofthelake August 15, 2008 Well, who knows. I don’t mind either way. But Rena Sofer is a notorious show killer, lol. Like 2 out of her last 10 shows are still on the air (Heros and 24) Log in to Reply THEBEST August 15, 2008 Rena should realize that she’s not some big time actress. If GH came calling to help revamp the Qs by getting Lois back, then I say go for it. But Guza is still writing, so i don’t know… ***///Living In The World Of Soaps Since 1985\\\*** Log in to Reply Jenny August 15, 2008 I love Rena/Lois but she made the right decision. GH is a mess, right now. ————————————— Daisy, you are bringing back memories. I believe she’s the reason Jax was bought on the show in the first place.

Log in to Reply season1217 August 15, 2008 Imagine if Rena had been playing Lois when they hooked the character up w/ Lorenzo. I’m going to start praying. I want my old GH back, STAT! Log in to Reply cubsgirl August 16, 2008 While it was probably good that she said “no” because the writing of GH is horrible, the character of Lois when she played her was wonderful. She didn’t let the Quartermaines tell her what to do. I loved Ned and Lois. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 August 16, 2008 I don’t blame her for turning down the gig because Guza will only use Lois to pimp Skate and the writing on this show is horrible. I think she would have said yes if a good headwriter was on here. siomonstuart2003 Log in to Reply OldGHFan August 16, 2008 Stay far, far away, Rena! You can do so much better than General Mobspital. Vanessa Marcil needs to keep away too. Unless of course GH gets a new regime. Log in to Reply Jenny August 16, 2008 ^^Oh, if Guza&Co. come knocking at VM’s door, she needs to run the other way. Log in to Reply season1217 August 16, 2008 I agree OldGHFan and Jenny, that’s why I can’t celebrate Genie Francis’ return and I shutter at the thought of Jagger coming on the show. Log in to Reply Amy August 16, 2008 Ugh, that better not be Carolyn Hinsey’s new employer. Seriously, everyone connected to daytime just needs to stop paying attention to her. I think any vet considering returning to GH should be cautious. In my opinion, Guza doesn’t have time for anything beyond his mob storylines….and everything else suffers because of it. It’s like he’s trying to write an opus now that he has Vincent Pastore from the Sopranos…except who will care by that time…and will there be anyone left to watch it? Amy Log in to Reply timepass August 16, 2008 I completely agree with season1217. She is really wise NOT to go to a show who is tanking and written so poorly. I quit watching BUT will start again WHEN Guza is out. Then with a GOOD HW, people I love can come back. Log in to Reply terrifictam August 19, 2008 I would much rather have Ned and BrookLynn back. If the whole family could come back then sure but for now still waiting for Wally Kurth to rejoin the Qs. Log in to Reply aunti2egl August 15, 2008 I almost voted yes, but w/out Nedly there……it just wouldn’t be the same. I love Rena, Lois was awesome….but I had to vote no. If Ned were to come back then Hells YEH!! Log in to Reply aunti2egl August 15, 2008 Yeh I remember that……man when Jax first came on, he was so so so hot!!! BUT when he very first came on, I hated him, that lasted about 5 mins. LOL!! I am the hugest Ingo fan! Probably bigger than Steve…well, maybe it’s a tie. Loved Jax w/ Brender. Log in to Reply aunti2egl August 15, 2008 Good for Rena! I’m glad she said no. GH suxs! Back in the day it rocked, so I don’t blame Rena one dang bit……. Log in to Reply HNPMS October 13, 2008 Are you serious? I’m so happy to hear that! I hope that she returns to Nathan, obviously after some serious groveling on his part! I just can’t stand to see him with Tracy/Nikki or another one! Do you know which episode will mark her return? I promise that if he and Nathan really divorce/separate and he ends up in a ‘relationship’ with Tracy, I will quit watching the show!
