The actress posted a behind-the-scenes photo from the set and stated, “Excited to be appearing as Ms. Madigan on @generalhospitalabc October 13 and October 14 (tomorrow & Wednesday)! Thank you Frank Valentini (”

Though she is new to daytime, Parikh’s turned up in numerous primetime series such as The West Wing, Rizzoli & Isles and Grey’s Anatomy and has voiced various characters in such films as Madagascar and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and can be heard as the radio announcer in the The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners video game. Look for her to also appear in the Wednesday October 14 episode.
