Amanda Setton Cast as General Hospital’s New Brook Lynn Ashton

General Hospital is bringing back another legacy character! TVLine reports Amanda Setton (Gossip Girl, Hawaii-Five-0) will assume the role of Ned Quartermaine (Wally Kurth) and Lois Cerullo’s daughter Brook Lynn Ashton Quartermaine!

Setton will make her debut Monday, November 18. Brook Lynn is the second legacy character to return since new head writers Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor took over creative. Last month, Marcus Coloma debuted as a recast for Nikolas Cassadine.

Previously played by Adrienne Leon (2004-2006; 2010-2011), the last time Brook Lynn was in Port Charles she had taken a bit of a heel turn. With her music career stalled, she was hired by Carly (Laura Wright) to break up childhood friend Dante (then-Dominic Zamprogna) and Lulu (then-Julie Berman). When that goes terribly wrong, Brook Lynn found a job and later short-lived romance with Nikolas (then-Tyler Christopher).

This isn’t Setton’s first venture into daytime. Setton had a two-year stint on ABC’s defunct soap One Life to Live as vixen-socialite Kimberly Andrews-Buchanan. Her additional credits include recurring roles on Gossip Girl, Hawaii Five-0 and series regular roles on The Mindy Project, The Crazy Ones.

So why is Lois and Ned’s baby girl in town? Does this have anything to do with our newly resurrected Nikolas? Will she have problems with her step-mommy Olivia (Lisa LoCicero)? Is she still trying for a singing career? We will just have to wait and find out.

General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC. Episodes are available on ABC.com and Hulu.
