After GENERAL HOSPITAL executive producer Frank Valentini tweeted out that the daytime drama would be getting an exciting new addition to the cast, fans were eager to know who it could be. Well, the show has finally announced that Ashley Jones is coming back as Parker! “I’ve been wanting to let you all know for quite some time,” Jones wrote on her blog, “but had to keep quiet so not to spoil anything.”
“The story has been set up in a very interesting way,” Jones teased. “I love that this character is so layered and rich. I think the writers have just barely started to scratch below the surface.” Of course, she couldn’t say much more about her return to GH than a quick comment on her wardrobe from costume designer Shawn Reeves. “I appreciated that he wanted her to be bright and fresh. That’s probably all I can say for now without getting myself in trouble.”
The actress, who gave birth to her son, Hayden just over a year ago on May 24, has been very busy being a new mom, so she’s excited to get back to work again.
A first air date isn’t yet known but fans can look forward to Parker returning to complicate Kristina’s life once more sometime in the next month or so. The last we heard of Parker, she broke up with Kristina in a letter. “Stay tuned for the fun and the drama,” Jones teased.
