Wishful Casting: Amanda Setton as General Hospital’s Brook Lynn Ashton


In keeping with my earlier post about how to rebuild the next generation of the Quartermaines, I got to thinking about Ned Ashton (Wally Kurth) and Lois Cerullo's (Rena Sofer) feisty, foxy daughter Brook Lynn, last played by Adrianne Leon. While I found Leon perfectly adequate in the role, I can't say she ever wowed me. I think the character of Brook could come on like gang busters with the right young actress in the role. In my opinion that thesp-in-bloom is frequent Gossip Girl guest star and One Life to Live alum Amanda Setton!
