Fans watching the Thursday, March 10, episode of General Hospital saw a different — but familiar — actress playing the role of Port Charles’ Harmony. Though there is no confirmation as to why Priscilla Garita had to temporarily step in for Inga Cadranel, the actress is no stranger to daytime — or the ABC soap.

Garita first appeared on General Hospital back in 2011. Fans may recall… Lucky headed to the Jacksonville brothel where Luke was raised and found his father with Lupe, his prostitute of choice. When Luke turned his back on Lucky, Lulu decided to seek out their father next but he was nowhere to be found upon her arrival.

Lupe and Javier, the brothel’s manger, told Lulu, who posed as one of Luke’s business associates, that he might return so Lulu took a job as a cocktail waitress. Dante had been the next to arrive and when Lupe learned he was a cop, Lulu pleaded with her not to rat them out. In the end, Javier thought Lupe had deceived him by giving Lulu and Dante information and killed her.

The actress also had roles on Passions as Theresa, as well as on Sunset Beach as Gabi, As the World Turns as Rita, All My Children as Anita and Another World as Kathy.

This isn’t the first time as of late that General Hospital has temporarily recast a role and there is no word on how long Garita will be filling in for Cadranel.

However, now is a good time to take a look back at a photo gallery of some of soaps’ all-time best and worst temporary recasts.
