“General Hospital” has cast Dee Wallace as the missing Spencer sister Patricia according to Soap Opera Digest. Patricia, or Pat, has never been seen on screen as she left Port Charles when her siblings Luke (Anthony Geary) and Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) were children.

Wallace has an extensive film and television history, but is most recognized as the mother in Steven Spielberg’s “E.T.” as well as in Stephen King’s “Cujo.” Wallace’s late husband Christopher Stone, whom she appeared in many projects with, played Bill Horton on “Days of our Lives” in the late eighties and early nineties.

No first airdate for Wallace is known, but will keep you up to date.
