Sydney Walsh has landed a role on General Hospital as a prisoner named Maggie and will appear in scenes with Alexis beginning on Tuesday April 13, as first reported by Soap Opera Digest. Daytime fans may recognize the actress from playing Judge Delores Anderson on The Young and the Restless.

Alexis looks ahead on GH

As we all know, even though Dante testified that Alexis wasn’t in her right mind when she attacked him, she pleaded guilty and is on her way to Pentonville to do a three-year sentence. Just yesterday, Alexis met with a consultant named Irene, who Diane arranged to help her friend prepare for prison. Though Alexis tried to keep the conversation light, Irene warned for her to keep the humor at home because it could make her enemies on the inside.

Upcoming spoilers reveal that Alexis and Maggie will cross paths in Pentonville, but their meeting appears to be beneficial to the former Port Charles lawyer, as Alexis will open up to the other inmate.

Jason swears he is innocent GH

In other jailhouse news… last week we reported that Sean Blakemore would be returning to the ABC soap opera as Shawn Butler, who is currently sitting in Pentonville himself. Not to mention, Jason is also being housed there since the judge denied his bail for the murder of Franco. Even though the men and women are separated in the penitentiary, you never know who Alexis will cross paths with next…

However, fans will get a clearer picture this week when the storyline is heavily played out as Alexis is forced to answer some hard questions as to how her life ended up where it did. Get details about the special Alexis-centric episode here, then check out the photo gallery that follows the tell-all — a celebration of Nancy Lee Grahn’s 25 years in the role.
