A decade ago, Amanda Setton set One Life to Live on fire as gold digger-turned-Buchanan bride Kimberly Andrews. Now, the Mindy Project alum is returning to daytime as General Hospital's Brook Lynn Ashton, TVLine exclusively reported. Setton has also appeared on The Crazy Ones, Hawaii Five-0, and Gossip Girl.
Street-smart Brook Lynn is the daughter of fan favorites Ned Quartermaine (né Ashton) (Wally Kurth) and Lois Cerullo (Rena Sofer). In fact, Daytime Confidential's own Jamey Giddens wishfully cast Setton as in the role back in 2012! She was previously played by Adrianne Leon and Brooke Radding.
On her first adult visit to Port Charles, Brook Lynn mixed it up with Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) and her now-dead sister Georgie (Lindze Letherman), the Alcazars, and her uncle Dillon (Scott Clifton/Robert Palmer Watkins). Last time, Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) brought Brook Lynn to town to break up cousin Lulu (Julie Marie Berman/Marcy Rylan) and Brook's childhood pal, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) before ending up with Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher/Marcus Coloma).
Now, Dante's mama, Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero), is Brook Lynn's stepmother, cousin Michael (Chad Duell) is running ELQ, and she's gained and lost relatives both real - in Drew Cain (Billy Miller) - and faux - in Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth). Will Brook mix it up with former love Nikolas, work to regain ELQ by channeling her grandma Tracy (Jane Elliot), or go after Lulu again? Tune in to GH to find out...
