Genie Francis will return to General Hospital in August for what is slated to be a short-term guest-starring stint.
Viewers will recall that the actress returned briefly in 2006; that return actually helped Francis win her first Daytime Emmy Award. Francis appears happy to be returning to her on-screen family.
"This is a short visit," Francis said in a statement. "It's a mother-daughter story. Years ago when I started playing the character as a 14-year-old girl, it was a mother-daughter story, only I was the daughter. So it's kinda cool this is full circle. It's nice to come back for visits. General Hospital is my home."
