They can log onto ABC.Com/GH and vote for one of four GH characters they would like to see return to the show for a special guest appearance. The character chosen by the fans will be featured during the Nurses Ball in May. The four characters fans can vote to bring back are: Courtney Matthews (last played by Alicia Leigh Willis), Stefan Cassadine (last played by Stephen Nichols), Mike Corbin (last played by Ron Hale), and Serena Baldwin (last played by Carly Schroeder) .
Additionally, fans will have a chance to see never before seen content such as show bloopers and behind the scenes footage, win giveaways, share their fan art using #GHFanFeb with the opportunity to see their creations featured on GH social media pages and get inside access to the stars with live tweeting and Q&As.
