On February 9, Grant Aleksander returns to Guiding Light in the role of Phillip Spaulding.
As he told TV Guide, co-star Ron Raines - who plays Phillip's father - is excited to have his character's son (who supposedly died in November 2004) back.
"I am absolutely thrilled to have my friend Grant Aleksander back in Springfield," Raines said. "I think the story is going to be terrific and very exciting for the fans. There are a lot of surprises — even some that I don't know!"
But will Alan share the actor's enthusiasm? That's another story.
"He doesn't know if his son is going to be an ally... or an obstacle," Raines said, teasing what lies ahead on the show.
