So, General Hospital has made a few surprising announcments this week:
They're revamping the opening credits. (About bloody time!)
Bradley Cole is doing a stint as Keifer's father (Oy. Jeffrey O'Neill, my least favourite GL character)
Lindze Letherman is coming back as Ghost!Georgie, to council Maxie in her hour of need. (Okay, they bring Natalia Livingston (!) back as an entirely new character, but not Lindze - who can actually, yanno, ACT?! The mind it boggles)
But this morning's bit of casting news is the really surprising one to me: as We Love Soaps reports (LINK) Annie Ilonzeh has been cast as Maya Ward, the great granddaughter of Edward Quartermaine. Apparently, the plot has Edward, who had an out-of-wedlock affair with Maya’s great grandmother, agreeing to pay for the young gal’s medical schooling. He persuades her to come to Port Charles and take an internship at General Hospital and move into the Quartermaine mansion. Look for Maya’s younger half-sister Zoe to also pop up further down the line. Word is, the beautiful Maya will be paired romantically with a Spencer.
So, let's break this down:
She's a Quatermaine
She's a medical student, so that means hospital scenes.
She's a Quartermaine
She's not connected to the mob in any way, shape or form.
She's going to be paired romantically with a Spencer. (Gotta be Lucky, yes?)
She's a Quartermaine.
Why do I feel like I should be hearing the hoofbeats of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?
