Laura is Coming Home to Port Charles
Genie Francis (ABC)
Once again, the beloved Genie Francis who has portrayed Laura Webber Spencer since 1976 is returning to GH. As we all remember the final heart wrenching scene in 2002, Laura was being wheeled away in the mental institution, not even recognizing her own children. Luke desperately trying to reach her, his final words ringing in the hall “good-bye my angel, good-bye”.
For those who are old enough to remember Luke and Laura’s wedding, which incidentally was seen by over 30 Million viewers, was a moment that has remained in many viewers hearts. That special day in daytime television history was 25 years ago, November 1981.
Genie has been one of the most endearing stars of daytime television for over 30 years. It's been confirmed her arrival will air sometime mid October and most certain there will be a dramatic reunion of some sort to celebrate Luke and Laura's 25th anniversary. While they're not married any longer, General Hospital writers will find an amazing way to recreate their love for one another.
So don't be sad for Laura, who's languished in the mental hospital for more than 4 years now - she's coming home to Port Charles, where she has always belonged.
