Legal maverick Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) has walked through the fire this year on General Hospital, and it's only April! Her crazed, presumed dead sister-in-law pretended to be her AA buddy and later kidnapped her pregnant daughter. The husband who tried to kill her is now presumed dead. What's next? Grahn spoke with Michael Fairman Soaps about what's going on with her alter ego.
When Alexis has looked at Julian during certain moments, it looks like she is still in love with him. Does she truly still love him? Is she in a conundrum, after all of the misery and pain this man has brought her?
Nancy Lee Grahn: I think she’s in a conundrum. That is a good word for her. She is in this conundrum, and there have been so many pieces, and it’s been so extreme, and so traumatic. There’s that letter he left her, and it explains stuff, but it doesn’t explain enough. There is no pat way to bring this together. I was curious, and I wanted to know from a large group of people, and not just the people on Twitter (whom I love their passion and so appreciate), “What do they want?” I am not sure people would buy Julian and Alexis being together.
What does this mean for Alexis in the near future? Grahn spoke about what she hopes will play out.
What are your hopes moving forward for Alexis?
NLG: I don’t want to go back to just being a caretaker, and being there for everyone. They now have dimensionalized Alexis, and they gave her an inner-life. It has been really fun and gratifying. These ladies, (GH head writers: Shelly Altman and Jean Passanante) appreciate women. Jean Passanante is as passionate about politics as I am. She is so on it, and we are simpatico in that way. Jean and Shelly are interesting women. They appreciate women who have a moral compass and a moral code, because they relate to it, and they get it. They think it’s interesting, and it is interesting. I have hope for Alexis’ future.
