Very soon Alexis is going to look a bit different to viewers. With Nancy Lee Grahn recovering from surgery, General Hospital has temporarily recast the role of Alexis with Stephanie Erb, as reported by Soap Opera Digest. Fans can expect to see her first appear during the week of April 25.



This isn’t the actress’ first time on soaps. In 2000, she turned up as a patient named Camille Owens on Port Charles then went on to play Mona on Days of Our Lives in 2001. From there, she played the role of Dr. Janice Mead on The Young and the Restless in 2014 and has appeared in numerous primetime series including Grey’s Anatomy, 9-1-1 and NCIS: Los Angeles, to name a small few.

Back on March 17, Grahn alerted her followers that she was having a procedure and shared, “Heads up. Having a little back thingy surgery next week. I’ll be on Percocet and Oxycontin,” to which she admitted, “I had to look up spelling of both so good sign.” She then urged fans to “ignore anything I tweet from March 23, 2022 to March 27, 2022.”

This is just the latest in a series of General Hospital temporary recasts… For example, earlier this month, Priscilla Garita stepped in for Inga Cadranel as Harmony.

Speaking of Harmony… For those who watched today’s Tuesday, March 29, recap, it’s clear Alexis is going to flip her lid when she finds out that her new BFF Harmony was the one who injected Neil with the drugs, while in her bed, that ultimately killed him!

While we wait for Erb to step into the role, take a look at our scorecard of all of the General Hospital exits as of late.
