Brad Maule Making a Comeback to GH?
Leslie Charleson, aka Monica Quartermaine, created quite the stir when she shared (and deleted) a picture with her former costar and GH alum, Brad Maule. Longtime fans might recall, Maule played Tony Jones from 1984 to 2006, until his character was killed off on-screen.
Apparently, Maule paid a visit to the GH set recently and Charleson couldn’t resist tweeting about it. It resulted in a flurry of speculation that Tony could be returning, possibly in flashbacks. Charleson may have thought she either spoiled the surprise or gave viewers false hope, as she deleted the post soon after.
A Mystery Woman Arrives in Port Charles
Nawal Bengholam, who has previously appeared on both Y&R and B&B, made her GH debut on October 14. She plays Roz, a woman of unknown background whom Peter assigns a task. We’ll have to wait and see what Peter has told Roz to do.
Judi Evans Returns to DOOL
The one and only Adrienne Kiriakis, played by Judi Evans, is making her return to DOOL. After having been missing on-screen since April, Evans was last seen on DOOL in an episode in August. But it’s reported that she will be a frequent presence now, starting on October 23.
DOOL Recast Arianna
Twin girls Harper and Sydnee Udell have played Will and Gabi’s daughter, Arianna Horton, on DOOL since the character debuted in 2013. However, the show will now recast Arianna with new actors.
The Udell twins shared the news on their Instagram page with a message of thanks to the show and the fans. The new actors who will play Arianna have yet to be announced.
