Sam is down one nemisis! (Soaps.com)

Some days just start out good.

Coffee in hand, I log on to my computer and sort through a myriad of emails. One pops out at me as interesting even though the subject is the basic “Hey Julie.” But it’s not from my sister or a fellow Soap.com editor this time, it’s from Annie Wersching. General Hospital‘s Jekyll and Hydeish Amelia Joffe must have something to tell me, so I opened it right away. And I’m glad I did! She has news for us.

“I wanted to let you know that I am now going to be a series regular on 24 this
season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”,
she writes. (Can you just feel her excitement?) She writes that she just found out about the role and that the powers that be at GH know, but as a favor to me, she wanted Soaps.com to be the first soap site with the news.

Annie tells me, “Unfortunately that means no more Amelia, but I had such a wonderful time in the soap opera world.” And let me speak for all of us, soap opera world had a wonderful time with the lovely (and damaged!) Amelia, too! It will be so interesting to see how the show will do away with her, or will they dare to recast? In any case, it’s been a wild ride since Amelia rode her broom into Port Charles.
