Rena Sofer explains Lois’s GH return

It’s safe to say that GH fans can accredit General Hospital’s Executive Producer, Frank Valentini for the bit of 90s nostalgia going on in Port Charles. It’s always nice to see familiar faces return over the years, bringing a sense of tradition and history.

Recently, General Hospital’s latest casting news shakes things up around Port Charles, especially the Quartermaine family. Earlier this year, word of Sofer’s The Bold And The Beautiful departure, fans immediately began to speculate a GH return. Finally, Rena Sofer returned to General Hospital as Lois Cerullo after nearly three decades.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Sofer explains how Lois’s return came to be. The actress then detailed the events that lead to her GH return. Evidently, this has been in the works since 2021. Rena explained that she was still playing Quinn on The Bold And The Beautiful at the time the idea originated.

Upon her GH return, Sofer spilled the tea to Soaps In Depth. “Out of nowhere, Frank reached out to me by text asking if I’d be willing to talk to him,” she continued. “I said, ‘Of course.’ The last time I saw Frank was at Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra, The Young And The Restless) and Chad Duell’s (Michael Corinthos, GH) wedding October 2021); we sat with each other and it was really great to see him.

Is Lois Cerullo Here To Stay?

“He was like, ‘I would love to get you back to GH,’” she continued. “At that time, I was still on The Bold and the Beautiful and I wasn’t even discussing it with him. But with this Eddie Maine story happening, it just really seemed like an absolutely perfect time to have Lois come back for a short amount of time to try to get Eddie to remember that he’s Ned. So Frank reached out to me and asked me if I’d be willing to come back for a short amount of time and I said yes.”

“I’ve played a lot of characters in my career and Lois is probably one of the top three characters I’ve ever played in 37 years of being an actress,” Sofer admitted. “So to be able to go back and do it was unreal.

“It’s just interesting to play her at this age,” she added. “She’s still loud and she’s still mouthy. She was still a lot like me, except with a Brooklyn accent and nails. But also, the story isn’t about me. The story is about Brook Lynn. The story is about Eddie Maine and Ned, so I need to respect that. This is not about me coming back and telling my story; this is about me coming back and supporting the stories that are there with me trying to create the knowledge of who Lois is now, 27 years later. So that is challenging, but also, part of the fun.”

Port Charles feels a little more like when I began watching now that Ned, Eddie, and Lois are together again!

General Hospital News: Congratulations To GH’s Chad Duell On His Engagement

Now he is engaged to, The Bold and the Beautiful’s, Sally Spectra. The couple has been living together for a little over three years. Now they are about to make things official!

General Hospital news and spoilers reveal, GH’s, Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) popped the question to girlfriend, Courtney Hope, and she said YES!

General Hospital News: More a Covid Related Changes; Will Willow Tait (Katelyn MacMullen) To Be Replaced By Chad Duell’s (Michael) Real Life GF?

As the cast and crew of General Hospital prepare to head back into the studio and dive back into filming, many changes will be made to ensure the safety and health of the actors and crew on set. The latest General Hospital news reports changes that will be made on set regarding close and personal contact such as love scenes.

General Hospital news and spoilers reveal a very interesting tactic that will be used when filming love scenes. General Hospital rumors indicate when feasible, actors and actresses real life significant others could be cast as body doubles in love scenes. For instance, Chad Duell’s (Michael Corinthos) real life girlfriend, Courtney Hope from The Bold and the Beautiful, has been rumored to be replacing Katelyn MacMullen in scenes where Willow and Michael become intimate. If this is true, it’s highly likely this will be the case for other on screen couples when feasible.

General Hospital spoilers and rumors suggest the two will ultimately fall in love, despite their marriage that took place solely to get custody of Wiley. If these two characters fall in love, there will be a need to work love scenes into the story, which would then bring up the possibility of minimizing personal contact if real life significant others are used as opposed to the actual actors who play a specific character.

Although this essentially makes sense, it’s unclear how this will work realistically, especially when a real life significant other is either non existent or unavailable for the scenes. For now, this new precaution is just a GH rumor but Genera Hospital Blog will update fans with any new concrete information regarding the new normal for returning to film.

General Hospital Spoilers: Is Lois Cerullo Headed Back To Port Charles

Lois Marie Cerullo (Rena Sofer) from Bensonhurst came to Port Charles back in 1993. In that time she reunited with her old friend Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). The one who brought her to Port Charles would eventually become her husband. Lois spotted “Eddie Maine” aka Ned Ashton at a concert in New York. She and Ned had a daughter together, Brook Lynn Ashton Quartermaine. Rena Sofer left the role in 1997. The role was recast in 2004-2005 by actress Lesli Kay.

General Hospital spoilers hint that now that her daughter Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) is back in Port Charles, Lois may have a few reasons to come check up on her wild child. Although Brook Lynn is clearly an adult, she seems to make rash decisions, which end up getting her into trouble. Currently, Brook Lynn is mixed up in some business deal gone wrong with a record producer. Her father, Ned, has basically told her to figure this out on her own. He refused to help her by buying out the creep who is harassing Brook Lynn. This may be time for a mother’s love to step in!

Rena Sofer currently plays, Quinn Fuller on The Bold and the Beautiful and is seemingly unavailable to play the role as Lois Cerullo unless she makes special arrangements with the networks. Such arrangements are not unheard of, as Sofer’s ex-husband, Wally Kurth, plays on both ABC’s General Hospital and NBC’s Days of Our Lives. The recast for Lois, Lesli Kay, has also played on The Bold and the Beautiful along with Rena Sofer. Kay plays Felicia Forrester. Lesli Kay is not currently in a role on a Daytime Drama.

General Hospital rumors claim Lois will want to step in and help her daughter in her crisis. Does Lois need to make a comeback to Port Charles?

Should Lois Return to help her daughter, Brook Lynn?

General Hospital Spoilers: Lucky Spencer Returns From Ireland With Son Aiden, Who Will Reprise Their Role?

There are many reason why Lucky Spencer would want to return to Port Charles in the very near future. Recent General Hospital spoilers hint that Lucky could be returning to Port Charles very soon.

Between the holiday season and the resurfacing of Lucky’s brother Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma), the timing makes sense for Lucky to bring his son back to Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), and to see his brother who has been presumed dead. Currently, Lucky and Elizabeth’s son, Aiden (Jason David), is staying in Ireland with his father Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) for the holidays. The child has to return to Port Charles sooner than later, and what better way to bring him back than his own father paying a visit in Port Charles.

There have been 3 actors to play the iconic role of Lucky Spencer, starting with the most well known actor as Lucky, Jonathan Jackson. Jackson originated the role and has been on General Hospital working alongside Daytime TV legends such as Anthony Geary (Lucas Lorenzo Spencer) and Genie Francis (Laura Webber Spencer). Jonathan Jackson is currently heavily involved in his band Enation but is not currently acting on TV. Jackson had a leading role on ABC’s Nashville, but since the end of that series, Jackson has not been steadily in a role.

Jacob Young and Greg Vaughan both had their time on General Hospital as well playing Lucky Spencer when Jackson left the show. In a recent interview with Soaps In Depth, Jacob Young revealed he would love to return to GH as Lucky. Young is off contract with The Bold and the Beautiful and disclosed his feelings toward the idea of returning. “It’s always been on my radar. Lucky was a really special time, and of course, I won the Emmy for that role, so that’s always gonna stick out in my mind.” Jackson said when asked about a possible return to GH. Although he states that he doesn’t see himself going on contract with General Hospital, he admits that The Bold and the Beautiful doesn’t have any roles open for him at the moment, however, General Hospital does.

Greg Vaughan was also a component in the Lucky Spencer saga throughout the years. However Vaughan is currently playing Eric Brady on NBC’s Days Of Our Lives and would mostly likely not be available to return to GH even for a short stint.

Although GH news has not confirmed the return of Lucky Spencer, it would seem to be the most logical time for the character to make himself present in Port Charles during this important time with his family now that Nikolas is alive. If Lucky were to return to Port Charles, which actor would GH fans prefer most?

General Hospital Favorite On His Way Out

Lately is seems like characters come and go through Port Charles as quickly as the wind blows. Whether it’s a vet character that has come back from the dead or back from a long mysterious disappearance, or a fresh new face, we have been seeing a lot of comings in goings in the last 2 years. A few characters make small appearances here and there, and their story lines are left open ended, giving them the opportunity to return.

General Hospital rumors have been circulating around social media sites that long time General Hospital actor, Wally Kurth is leaving the show to return to NBC’s Days of Our Lives. Ned Ashton has come and gone throughout the years, and his current story line has been a promising one. Currently, he has reconnected with his best friend and romantic interest, Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn). He is involved in a complicated love triangle involving Alexis and Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero). Olivia has made it known that she wants to be more than friends with Ned, but he is in a relationship with Alexis, who is only with Ned because she can’t be with Julian Jerome (William DeVry).

If the General Hospital rumors become true, and Wally Kurth is leaving General Hospital, that will leave Olivia with no one once again. It would be nice to see him stick around, to play out the story and end up with Olivia. What do you think will happen with Ned and Olivia?

GH’s Kelly Thiebaud (Dr. Britt Westbourne) Jumping Ship! Find Out Where She is Headed

There have definitely been some major shake ups this year when it comes to General Hospital ins and outs. A few months back it seemed like the actors from General Hospital and the Young and the Restless were bouncing back and forth from each of those two daytime dramas. Y&R gained General Hospital’s Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) and Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio, Colin Atkinson), while General Hospital gained Y&R’s Billy Miller (Billy Abbott, Jason Morgan), Michelle Stafford (Phylllis Newman, Nina Clay), and Maura West (Diane Jenkins, Ava Jerome), and more.

In more recent casting news, it has been confirmed that General Hospital’s Kelly Thiebaud (Dr. Britt Westbourne, aka The Britch) has been bumped from her contract with General Hospital to a recurring status. The newest piece of information that has caught wind by the soap opera social media is that Kelly Thiebaud is on her way to The Bold and the Beautiful. In a report from Soaps in Depth, there has been a General Hospital rumor floating around that B&B has made Kelly Thiebaud an offer she just cannot turn down. It has been rumored that Kelly will be joining the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful as Steffy Forrester.

A source at CBS denies this claim, leaving this rumor just as it is, a rumor. However, looking back on Billy Miller and the Jason Morgan saga, there was a siginificant amount of back and forth, even to the point of denial that this character was joining GH.

What do you think about this rumor? Will Kelly Thiebaud land a spot on the CBS soap, The Bold and the Beautiful?
