Miniseries role.

“General Hospital” alum Cynthia Preston (Port Charles’ ex-Faith Roscoe) will appear in Syfy’s six-part miniseries “Ascension.” “Ascension” will air two hourlong back-to-back episodes December 15, 16 and 17 starting at 9:00 PM ET/PT on the Syfy channel. The miniseries is an original drama following a covert U.S. space mission launched in the 1960s that sent hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Half way into their journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.

“Ascension” stars Brandon P. Bell (“Hollywood Heights”), Brian Van Holt (“Cougar Town”) and Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Galactica”). Preston plays Laura Enzmann and is expected to appear on the December 15 and 16 episodes at 9:00 PM.
