General Hospital executive producer Frank Valentini teased fans on Twitter that big casting news was coming and boy was his right! A famous alum from a majorly popular 80s primetime soap is heading to Port Charles!
Entertainment Weekly reports Knots Landing alum Donna Mills, best known for her nine-year stint as villainess and temptress Abby Ewing, is joining the cast! Little is known about the role at the moment, but EW reports Mills is playing a new, major character and will first air in February.
This won’t be Donna Mills’ first foray into daytime. The actress previously starred in soap operas The Secret Storm and Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing before conquering primetime television. With a career spanning 48 years, she’s amassed a deep resume of starring and guest starring roles ranging from Gunsmoke to GCB.
We’ll try to get some dish from Valentini later tonight during Disney-ABC’s All-Star Cocktail Reception. Think he’ll spill?
