Constance Towers

Catching Up With Constance

TVGuide's Michael Logan caught up with Constance Towers on her return to General Hospital as Helena Cassadine. In true Helena form, she returns to screw with the peeps of Port Chuck.

Ultraglam superbaddie Helena Cassadine returns to General Hospital April 13 just in time to screw with the hospital’s computer system and ruin the grand opening of the new nurse’s station. The killer granny – played by Constance Towers – will plunge the ceremony into darkness, then appear on the monitors to announce she’s back to raise hell and wreak vengeance on her grandson Nikolas (Tyler Christopher). Chaos ensues.

It looks like we have a date for the new hospital debut! Towers' return to General Hospital is only one of things happening for the actress with a guest role on the March 29th episode of Cold Case. Constance will also appear alongside John Aniston (Days of Our Lives) and former As the World Turns star Jesse Lee Soffer in The Awakening of Spring. READ MORE

General Hospital Spoilers!

Here’s the Scoop! 03.05.09

We’re going to make today a Q & A day. Tomorrow will be an off day unless my new internet is hooked up early enough to blog. Ask away and I’ll answer what I can.

So Luke loves the Cassadines and he always calls for a resurgence of all things Cassadine and to most that means their evil ways. Nikolas is always seen as the good Cassadine and I’m still trying to figure out what kind of Cassadine Alexis is supposed to be. They seem to forget that Sam is a Cassadine which sucks for the Sam fans but is ok by me. Apparently a RUMOR is out there that the ultimate Cassadine is returning. Helena! This RUMOR say Constance Towers MAY be returning in April. Why the return? I’m not sure but ever since Natalia Livingston returned as Rebecca and not as fan favorite Emily Quartermaine fans have been clamoring for Rebecca Shaw to really be Emily and have said Helena should be involved in the fake death. Word of Caution… the Helena RUMORS supposedly are coming from SID and while it’s a great mag sometimes their RUMORS are more miscommunication than actual facts. READ MORE

Constance Towers: Stepping Out

September 22, 2008, Burbank, CA – The Falcon Theatre presents Richard Alfieri’s Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks, the second production in its 2008-2009 “Bringin’ the FUNNY" All-Comedy subscription season. Constance Towers, star of Broadway and the popular soap opera General Hospital, and Jason Graae, award-winning musical theater and TV actor, star in this revival of the Broadway and international hit play, directed again by Arthur Allan Seidelman and choreographed by Kay Cole.

It’s hate at first sight when Lily (Constance Towers), a formidable retired woman, hires Michael (Jason Graae), an acerbic ex-Broadway chorus boy, to give her private dance lessons in her Florida condo. As Michael teaches Lily to dance, they both learn some unexpected lessons in life. Part comedy, part drama, part cha-cha-cha.
