Finola Hughes to Leave General Hospital... Return for a Night Shift?

Finola Hughes
This Friday on General Hospital marks a first: Rick Springfield will sing on screen, a Noah Drake tries to pass himself off as rocker Eli Love.

The concert caps a storyline in which Noah and former spy Anna Devane have grown rather tight, yet fans hungry for anything more will have to bide their time.

"I really enjoyed working with Rick. He's a lot of fun, a nice, relaxed chilled guy," Finola Hughes, whose latest run as Anna wraps with the concert. "But we still have a lot of episodes of How Do I Look? [the Style Network show Hughes hosts] to do before the end of the year, and I'm still making jewelry for QVC, which takes up a great deal of my time."

Interestingly, it was Hughes' and Springfield's respectively busy calendars that threw them together for this short-term tale.

"I feel that’s why it works so well with Rick and I, because he's flying around in and out of town," the British beauty told TV Guide.

Could Anna resurface on a possible second round of SOAPnet's General Hospital: Night Shift, which this week wraps production on its 13-episode freshman foray?

"That would be nice, sure!" she said, noting that she previously was approached about swinging by the spin-off. "We'll have to see if that works into the schedule. But I think it's an amazing show. I've been watching it, and it's great."
