Last month we reported that Kimberly McCullough had teased a General Hospital return and now we can confirm that the actress will in fact be back on Friday, May 21, as officially announced by Soap Opera Digest.

In a few cryptic Twitter posts the actress revealed, “I did something really cool today that involved wearing make-up and heels all day, which I clearly wasn’t prepared for,” then went on to ask fans, “Can anyone guess what this cool thing was?”

Her followers were quick to guess that she had spent the day on the set of General Hospital, with one fan, Sal Anthony Corrente, simply assuming it was so by replying, “Glad to hear that you are making a General Hospital appearance. I wish you would stay.” And we wish that too!

McCullough continued to fuel the fun with a clue and shared, “Saw some old friends and reminisced about an absent dear one.”

For those who haven’t heard, as discussed in our General Hospital spoilers, next Friday the ABC soap opera will air a special tribute episode to honor the late John Reilly (Sean Donely), who passed away in January, with a special appearance by his daughter Caitlin Reilly and a return of fan favorite Kristina Wagner (Felicia). Along with other Port Charles residents, fans can expect to be pulled into a mystery surrounding one woman from Sean’s life.

It’ll be neat to watch Reilly’s daughter take on this role during the touching tribute. We invite readers to take this time to look at other father/daughter duos in our gallery filled with photos of soap stars and their real-life dads.
