Nazanin Boniadi (ABC)

The rest of the country watched the news in horror last week while it looked as it much of California was going up in smoke. As each day passed, I was going more and more concerned about our friends at General Hospital so I fired off a few quick emails. I heard back from several of our favorite actors and am happy to report that all seems well with them given the frightening circumstances.

Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller) assured me that she is fine, but “five miles in any direction” could make a big difference. Jackie Zeman (Bobbie Spencer) told me that firemen circled her house for over two days and that in her book, they are all heroes.

GH newcomer Nazanin Boniadi (Leyla Mir) expressed the following to Soaps.com:

“My heart goes out to all those families affected by the fires. Although the fumes and smoke has polluted the air where we live causing us to have to stay indoors and leave the windows closed, we were fortunate enough not to lose our home in the fire. All those affected by the tragic events are in my prayers.”
