Soap opera icon Genie Francis is sharing more details about her latest General Hospital contract. In an interview with TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan, she talks about her contract and Laura's involvement in the Jake is really Jason storyline.

It’s about time! How are we feeling about this contract?The visits have been nice but this gives me a really warm, cozy feeling—a feeling like I’ve come home. A three-year deal is a very big commitment from ABC these days. It’s too soon to know what stories they have planned for Laura—the who-what-where—but I know they really want to write for me and that’s exciting. [Laughs] They finally took me back!

Laura really has a problem with her son, Nikolas, and his part in the cover-up. Will she get over that?[Laughs] I don’t know! This could get worse before it gets better. This is not how Laura raised her children! But, then, Nikolas is the one kid she didn’t raise. Way back, it was so touching that Nikolas, even though he grew up with the evil, crazy Cassadine family, was very sweet, tender, kind. He had Laura’s heart. But in the back of Laura’s mind there’s always been this fear of, “God, I hope he never acts like a Cassadine!” And when he does, it really terrifies her.
