Luke and Laura, together again

Actress returns to `General Hospital' for limited run at time when soaps are losing steam

October 26, 2006|By Kate Aurthur | Kate Aurthur,Los Angeles Times

HOLLYWOOD -- Laura Spencer -- who in 30 discontinuous years as a lead character on ABC's General Hospital, has gone from an ingenue to a catatonic mental patient -- is about to wake up.

In grandiose soap-opera style, Laura, famously played by Genie Francis, will come out of her state of "psychomotor disassociation," to use the show's diagnosis. Laura's revival on today's episode -- and Francis' return to the show after a four-year absence -- will no doubt have repercussions for her three troubled children: Lucky is recovering from a nasty pill addiction, Lulu feels guilty about her recent abortion and Nikolas' life is being undermined by his son's psychotic nanny.

General Hospital airs at 3 p.m. weekdays on ABC.
