General Hospital spoilers show fan favorite Leslie Charleson will be back on the scene reprising her role as Monica Quartermaine very soon. Leslie has been recovering from a fall she had in May.

Leslie Charleson returns to GH after injury

According to ABC Soaps In Depth, Leslie first began developing the character of Monica in 1977.  She was recast into the role originally played by Patsy Rahn from 1976-77. Since then she has lead the character through many ups and downs, including affairs, scandals, alcohol addition and more.

Her character has suffered the loss of almost all of her family and is now starting to rebuild. Leslie has filled the shoes of Monica for over forty years!

Patty McCormack leaves General Hospital

Some fans feel that temporary recast, Patty McCormack is doing a great job filling in during Leslie’s absence. She seems quite at home playing the character, but according to sources, she is excited to place the role back in the hands of its iconic portrayer. She told SID, “I hope Leslie has a speedy return because everyone loves her.”

Leslie is expecting to start taping towards the end of July. It will be interesting to see the ways that General Hospital will weave her back onto the canvas. We look forward to seeing her new scenes in the next few weeks. Hopefully, she will be able to whip the Quartermaines back into shape. At least the ones that are living in her house, the one that Alan gave her.

The “Real” Monica Quartermaine is back

Where will Monica go from here? Since the departure of her friend-enemy and sister-in-law, Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot), Monica has just been hanging around.

She will hopefully be returning in time to take part in the fall out from the sexual harassment suite of Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin) vs. the creepy Dr. David Bensch (James DePaiva). Many are hopeful that the Dr. Bensch will get his walking papers.
