Valentini to Access Hollywood on Genie Francis' GH Return: "It’s Not a Guest Appearance"


What exactly has General Hospital's Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) been up to in Europe for the past five years? Showrunner Frank Valentini spoke with Access Hollywood at ABC’s TCA after party, where he offered up the skinny. Valentini stated:


“She’s coming back because Port Charles is her home and there were reasons why she was away,” he told at ABC’s bash last Thursday, following the Television Critics Association Winter Session 2013. “I think it’ll be exciting for the audience to discover what those reasons are and to sort of stay with a little bit of the mystery of Laura’s return.”

Will Francis' stint at GH be a short one? Not according to one half of Cartini: 

'No, it’s not a guest appearance. We’ve hired her, we’ve absolutely hired her."
