The sequel to Genie Francis' Hallmark Channel movie The Note, The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love premieres on Saturday, January 31. With the success of The Note, a second installment turns this into a franchise for Genie and a way to move on from her iconic role as Laura Spencer on General Hospital. In a recent interview, Francis speaks about her time on General Hospital and the opening paragraph seems to insinuate that a return to Port Charles is not likely.
Genie Francis figures the time has come for everyone to leave Laura Spencer behind and face the fact that the little teenager who captured the heart of America in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s is gone and is never coming back – but that a 46-year-old actress named Genie Francis is ready for her close up, Mr. DeMille.
“I think enough time has passed to finally let go of that little ingénue Laura and look at who I am today,” Francis declares. “I’d say I’m just about ready to play Martha in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? I’m hoping America can rediscover me in a new way. And I’m honestly feeling like that can really happen now.”
