What were your First Impressions of the return of Laura's (Genie Francis) mama on General Hospital? Photo credit: ABC 18 Responses Sweet_Thing2 May 20, 2013 I’m so excited to see her! I am so glad to see Denise Alexander back on GH. It made the best week for the show since the nurses ball. I hope she stays around. I’ve loved Denise Alexander since Days of Our Lives!! Log in to Reply angrierblackerman May 20, 2013 Was great to see her again! She brought the same great energy she did in the 80’s. I laughed out loud when she was yelling at Scotty! Wish she could be more permanent! I would love to see her and Tracy sparring. The one liners would slay! Log in to Reply NathanHastingsSr. May 20, 2013 She was fantastic!

Log in to Reply mfarris70 May 20, 2013 Loved her snap at Scotty. “When you killed my husband!” Really hope they’re going to revisit that terrible story and right it. Log in to Reply cinicic May 20, 2013 I so miss my Mary Lasalle McKinnon and her boy, Scott and Vince and even mean old Reginald Love. Another World–now there is a show I would watch online faithfully and religiously. Though it would be difficult to recapture it after so many years. Got a bit off topic there. Was great seeing Mary pretend she is Laura’s mom. Love Denise Alexander any way I can get her. I must confess I had NO idea Lesley was a doctor, though. She is one of those magical actresses a person is just drawn to. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 May 20, 2013 It’s amazing to see Lesley again. She was such an important character in the show’s history. I hope Lesley stays in town and we see her interact with Monica. Log in to Reply Sweet_Thing2 May 20, 2013 I was also glad to see that her hair wasn’t so orange/reddish as it has been in the past. She looked great. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon May 20, 2013 I became her fan for life when she played Mary LaSalle/Mckinnon on Another World. One of the first times I ever cried watching a soap was watching Denise as Mary struggling to recapture the memories that Reginald had stolen from her when he faked her death, brainwashed her, and took her to Paraguay. Log in to Reply logan_echolls May 20, 2013 I loved her shock that Liz was dating Monica’s son. I love that she’s on Nik’s side. I just loved how she yelled at Scott though. Scott coming to her all warm and fuzzy and she’s like you killed my husband!! It’s like he totally forgot he killed Rick Log in to Reply curacaoman May 20, 2013 One fact everyone is forgetting: Rick had not been Lesley’s husband for quite a while when he was murdered. Ginny anyone? It would have been awesome if Roger Howarth had returned as Mike Webber, bent on avenging his father’s death Log in to Reply appleridge May 20, 2013 Deek Barrington is Mike Webber’s bio dad with Ginny Blake. Rick was his adoptive/step dad Log in to Reply Wings1295 May 20, 2013 I love having Lesley back! Wish her return could be a permanent one, or at least have Lesley stay in town and the actress pop in now and then. Log in to Reply Dinah May 20, 2013 Like always she is great Log in to Reply PennySoap May 20, 2013 LOVE HER! Log in to Reply iowaninmn May 20, 2013 The return of Lesley Webber made the week. I was always drawn to Lesley when I first started watching the show. Maybe because she was such a loving mother to her daugher (and I was just a boy at the time). I hated that wretched Monica for all the pain she caused Lesley!!! Log in to Reply Peterascal May 21, 2013 Great having her back! Hopefully it’s open-ended. As for her husband Rick, technically they might’ve still been married. Log in to Reply TheFloatingRib May 21, 2013 I wish Lesley could stay around forever. I still remember the 70’s and have always had a fascination with Lesley. Denise Alexander is a beautiful actress. Please keep her around.
