General Hospital comings and goings welcome back Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna) while Brook Lynn Ashton (now Briana Lane) sports a new face these days. Plus, there’s another swap for a power-player and a long-time soap vet takes on a new role on GH. Now, take a look at who’s in and who’s out on the ABC sudsfest.
General Hospital Comings & Goings: Dante Falconeri Back for Hot Plot
Casting news for GH confirms Dante Falconeri is officially back – as viewers saw in the first new episode since the lockdown. Now, viewers get more insight into Dante’s PTSD ordeal and treatment at the WSB facility. Clearly, Dante still struggles a great deal and fears he’s a danger to his family. Remember, Dante’s mother Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero) desperately wants him home on GH.
Also, a General Hospital cast addition is Dante’s doctor, soap veteran Christopher Cousins. Longtime soap watchers may remember him as Cain Rogan on One Life to Live. He played the role for nearly 20 years and appeared on other sudsers as well. Hopefully, he can get through to Dante Falconeri. That way Dante can go home to those that need him. Plus, General Hospital didn’t bring Dom back just to sit in a WSB room. Watch for a hot storyline for Dante Falconeri.
Brook Lynn Ashton Recast on GH
General Hospital spoilers report firecracker Brook Lynn Ashton looks a bit different right now. Currently, Amanda Setton is on pregnancy leave as she awaits her third bundle of joy. So, actress Briana Lane took over temporarily until Amanda returns to GH as Brook Lynn. If she looks a bit familiar, she’s from The Real Housewives of Horror and other shows before her Brook Lynn stint.
No doubt, she seems perfectly comfortable jumping into the role of Brook Lynn Ashton on General Hospital. And, Brook Lynn gives Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms) a run for her money at Deception. And, as always, Brook Lynn’s ready to make life difficult for Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan). Wait to see if Amanda returns. For now, it’s Briana as Brook Lynn deepens her ties to Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) on General Hospital.
General Hospital: Sam McCall Swap
Recently on GH, there’s another swap. Now, the role of Sam McCall’s temporary recast. Currently, Lindsay Hartley took over for Kelly Monaco. So, Kelly’s mom said she had a hard time adjusting to COVID safety demands. No doubt, fans are eager for her return. However, Lindsay looks like she’s doing the role justice. Also, we can confirm that Kelly’s already back on set now.
Now, most General Hospital viewers accept the recast actress. Sadly, it’s not a good time for Sam right now. Recall, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) crashed his motorcycle and needs brain surgery. No doubt, there are shockers to come. So, continue to watch GH every day to see Dante Falconeri back in action and the new Brook Lynn Ashton on ABC daytime.
