Grey’s Anatomy Chandra Wilson Checks Into General Hospital!

Look who’s dropping into Port Charles next month! Grey’s Anatomy scene stealer and soap fan Chandra Wilson has nabbed a guest starring role on General Hospital. Per ABC Soaps In Depth, Wilson’s top secret character will be a patient of Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom). Just how in the world did this role come about?

Wilson told the magazine:

Roger [Howarth, Franco] was visiting the GREY'S set and we talked about it. Then, the following Friday, I got the call. I asked Frank [Valentini, GH's executive producer] if this was because of Roger and he said, 'No. This has been in the works before.' So I don't know! But I'm glad it's happening.

Wilson makes her GH debut on Jan. 28.

    I’m very excited that Chandra Wilson is coming onto GH even if it is probably only a short term role.However i’m wondering who she’ll be playing because i don’t think GH would cast her as an insignificant character who won’t make some impact on a story.

    Best News Ever… What took you so long FV/RC? Next, Castle should drop by to help Anna solve the case of Connie’s death. Come on boys, use your marbles. Ya got them.

    Unless she’s coming on as TJ’s mother, I honestly don’t care.

    I will be thrilled to see Kevin more but I can just tell as soon as I seen that Roger was involved she will come on to prop that annoying Franco character. I bet her character will start talking about that precious sweet nurse who walked her to Kevin’s office, Sabrina, smh

    Roger went to Grey’s to try to get a role and instead we get Bailey. I love her (IRL she got some gorgeous kids!) I just hope she isn’t being used to just prop

    She’s a true soap fan. I think it would be very interesting to see her as a different character because Chandra Wilson has always been “Bailey” to me. Maybe she’s the missing Quartermaine! LOL

    I love how Roger is ABC’s golden boy who’s welcome to just pop in on the set of Grey’s like that. Quite a contrast from a couple years ago when soaps were the ugly stepchild!

    Dollars to doughnuts this is TJ-related. Cartini doesn’t just throw characters in there willy-nilly, plus Chan seems pretty excited about the role.

    Well, Chandra’s a great actress. Have to wonder a little bit why, though. Aren’t there too many characters on the show already…

    I think she is going to play Felix and Taylor’s mother.

    Not really sure why Roger Howarth was mentioned by her. IMO she didn’t need to say the part where he visited her on set, it makes it seem as if Roger has power over casting decisions on that show, and that’s just ridiculous.

    It should be easy for Chandra or anyone else from Grey’s to guest star on GH and vice-versa, since they film the shows in the same building. When Robin went to Seattle a couple years ago, she was seen walking into Seattle Grace/Mercy West. Would be great if there was a crossover even with Bailey seeking Kevin’s help with her OCD problem. And if Bobbie would be seen working at Grey Sloan Memorial now, it would tie it right in. Hmmm…
