Kassie DePaiva Returning to 'General Hospital'

Kassie DePaiva

Former One Life to Live star Kassie DePaiva is bringing Blair Cramer back to Port Charles! The actress recently announced her pending return to General Hospital on her official website.

“I received a call from GH’s executive producer Frank Valentini. My friend…And he said there is something coming up on the canvas for Blair,” the actress wrote in her blog. “I guess it must be true because Carolyn Hinsey tweeted that I would be coming back for a ‘nice stint’. I’m not sure what that means exactly… But maybe that’s a good sign. I’m always excited to put Blair’s hat back on and to walk in her shoes. GH is looking good these days.”

After OLTL ended its 44 year run on Jan. 12, 2012, DePaiva’s character crossed over to GH in March for a major storyline involving Blair’s daughter Starr (Kristen Alderson). She returned again in May and July.

No news on a first airdate or what her story will be, but with Todd’s (Roger Howarth) role in the baby switch being exposed, one can only assume Blair will return to blast her ex for his actions.

My POV: Can GH just put Kassie DePaiva on contract already? All of this coming and going is so unfair. I understand there may be some hesitation to bring Blair on permanently considering the backlash GH received from fans about the OLTL “invasion,” but there is just SO MUCH STORY with her character. I hope they’re able to work something out to bring her on full time. An actress of DePaiva’s caliber should be used.
