We’re about to see a new face in Port Charles beginning the week of May 10. Soap Opera Digest is reporting that Guiding Light alum Kimberly J. Brown (former fashion designer Marah Lewis) has been cast on General Hospital in a new, mysterious role.

This will be the second daytime role for Brown, who told the magazine, “I haven’t done a soap since Guiding Light, so I’m just thrilled to be doing something in daytime again.” The actress will be reunited with former Springfield castmates Laura Wright (Carly), who played Cassie, as well as Cynthia Watros (Nina), who appeared as Annie.

Our Hallmark fans might recognize Brown from her role as Angela in 2019 during the third installment of Hallmark Movies & Mysteries’ Crossword Mysteries series, starring All My Children alum Lacey Chabert (Bianca).

However, the question remains… What brings Brown’s character to Port Charles and who will she be involved with? Will she be wrapped up in a storyline surrounding former All My Children actor Cameron Mathison’s General Hospital debut? Or maybe she’ll turn up during one of the many May Sweeps plots?

Whatever the case, we’ll be eagerly awaiting her daytime return! For now, join us as we look back on various soap opera stars who went on to do movies and primetime then returned to their daytime roots in our photo gallery.
