General Hospital spoilers reveal that actress Angie Patterson was seen auditioning, and recently visited the GH set to read for a role on the soap. Although ABC network and the powers that be (TPTB) have remained tight-lipped on the unknown role, there has been a lot of speculation about who she might be portraying. It is entirely possible that she would be a whole new character – but it’s more likely she is returning with some ties to someone in Port Charles, possibly legacy character Liz.
Elizabeth Finally Gets More Family?
GH fans have heard the spoilers and rumors that Elizabeth “Liz” Webber (Rebecca Herbst) was soon getting more family, and truthfully, who doesn’t like having members of a legacy family return to town? It is very plausible that if Angie Patterson comes to Port Charles, she could portray Liz’s sister, Dr. Sarah Webber, last portrayed by Sarah Laine back in in 2002.
For long-time viewers of the ABC soap opera, you will remember that Sarah was involved with Nikolas Cassadine (then Tyler Christopher) and later Lucky Spencer (then Jacob Young). There is a strong resemblance in the photo between Patterson and Herbst. As fans, you cannot rule this rumor out just yet!
Did you hear that GH alum John Stamos just had a baby with his new wife?
Could Hayden Return?
General Hospital spoilers tease now that Dr. Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton) is finally opening his heart to another woman – Anna Devane (Finola Hughes), it would be the perfect time to bring back Hayden Barnes/Webber, no? It could not be a better time to bring Hayden back to town, and not just because Liz could use some sisterly love and support after everything she’s endured. How will Finn react to seeing the woman he so desperately loved and lost, back in town? If she is Hayden, will she return and will she have their baby with her?
Did you know these 5 things about Rebecca Herbst?
Rebecca Budig, the ex-Hayden, is moving on to other projects. Also, in an interview last year with Michael Fairman, showrunner Frank Valentini said that while Hayden’s story had “come to a natural end” he said “Hayden could return” but did not say that it would be Rebecca Budig in the role. He never said Budig would be back.
In terms of budget, it would be cheaper for General Hospital to cast a soap newcomer than to bring back veteran Rebecca Budig at a higher price. Either way, as you can see in the photo above, Angie Patterson has the right look to play a Webber sister, whether it’s Sarah or Hayden!
For GH fans who may not know a lot about Angela Jade Patterson (Angie), she was born in Los Angeles, California and is an actress/producer best known for American Crime Story (2016), The Mindy Project (2012), and Deadly Inn (2018). Keep an eye out for Angie Patterson!
