One of General Hospital’s finest recent gems was snatched up from another network. Long time Y&R actress Michelle Stafford left the CBS network to join ABC’s General Hospital in 2013. Her iconic role as Phyllis Newman on Y&R was left for actress Gina Tognioni to fill Stafford’s shoes while Michelle became GH’s crazy Nina Clay.
In the most recent issue of Soaps in Depth, Michelle Stafford revealed that she has taken on a new role… but don’t fear, she will not be leaving General Hospital. She was working on a side project last month, filming for the independent feature, Durant’s Never Closes. Stafford already filed for this movie and she was able to work around her hectic GH schedule.
Michelle Stafford is also working on another side project that is being kept under wraps for now, she is in the director’s seat for that project.
