Kelsey Wang exits General Hospital
gh

Updated July 11: Kelsey Wang will be making her way back to General Hospital as Daisy during the week of July 15. As detailed in Soaps.com’s General Hospital recap, Daisy was stunned to learn Kristina left Dawn of Day and was last seen on April 16.

On March 1 we reported Kelsey Wang returns to General Hospital as Daisy the week of March 4, after Shiloh sent her away for disappointing him. Back on February 1 Soaps.com reported that Daisy’s portrayer Kelsey Wang will not be seen in Port Charles any time soon. Daisy’s confession that she sent the taunting emails to Sam about her con-artist past resulted in Shiloh demoting her at Dawn of Day, thus sending the actress offscreen. As previously reported, Wang first appeared as Daisy on General Hospital on September 26, with some fans assuming she would be Kristina’s next love interest. Though she’s off canvas for now, there’s always a possibility she will return, as Kristina and the Davis clan become more immersed in the self-help guru’s community of do-gooders. Or is it really a cult?
