ONE LIFE TO LIVE’s Sole fans will soon get to see their favorite pair — if only for a few episodes — on GENERAL HOSPITAL. Today is Kristen Alderson‘s first day on the GH set as Starr, and Van Hughes (Cole) will briefly be joining her. Soaps In Depth has learned that Broadway veteran Hughes — who is currently starring in the touring production of American Idiot — is also due on the GH set. Our theater spies report that Hughes will not actually miss any performances, since he is taping on a day off from the musical adapted from the Green Day album of the same name. A spokesperson for GH had no comment.
Meanwhile, Alderson announced last Friday that she’s inked a multi-year deal with the soap. “Just signed my General Hospital contract! 3 years!” she tweeted. “Here we go… You guys ready!? YAY” Earlier this morning, the actress was up bright and early for her first day on her new soap set. “5:40 am! Time to get ready for work! Ahhh new beginnings!”
