The new year will bring two new characters to GENERAL HOSPITAL. Khary Payton will make his debut as Terrell, a new pediatrician at the hospital, the week of January 3, while Suzanne Whang, will first air as Carol, a significant figure stepping into Brenda’s life, the week of January 10. Both roles are recurring.
While GH marks the daytime debut for both actors, Whang already knows one of her soap co-stars: She played spa manager Polly on LAS VEGAS opposite Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda), who starred as Sam on the NBC drama. Also a stand-up comedienne, Whang hosted HGTV’s HOUSE HUNTERS for nearly 10 years and appeared as Alice’s mom, Fern, on ABC Family’s THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER earlier this year.
Payton has previous GH connection as well: he voiced a character on TNT’s animated action series GENERATOR REX, which also stars Wally Kurth (ex-Ned). He’s also lent his vocal talents to animated shows like TEEN TITANS, BEN 10: ALIEN FORCE and a slew of video games, including the upcoming celebrity-filled DC Universe Online, where he’ll voice Cyborg and GH’s Adrienne Barbeau (Suzanne) can be heard as Catwoman!
