Robin Mattson returns to GENERAL HOSPITAL on Monday, April 2, as crazy Heather Webber when Sam tracks down Jason’s biological mother’s cousin in the loony bin, where she’s been ever since becoming obsessed with Luke and abducting Skye and Laura. “She was committed to Ferncliff, where she’s been for the past six years. She’s in there willingly,” Mattson tells Soaps In Depth.
While Heather’s reappearance on GH initially involves Jason, Sam and the Franco fiasco, they aren’t the only ones to get sucked into her crazy world! Luke, Tracy, Steve and Olivia best watch their backs as well! “In her mind, everything she does is justifiable, whether it’s out of her feelings for Luke or the motherly love she has for her son,” Mattson shares. “She’s just put them on such a pedestal that they can do no wrong. And there’s no wrong she wouldn’t do for them. That puts anybody close to them in a certain amount of danger.”
In other words, Olivia may not be so willing to share Sunday gravy with Steve’s Mommy Dearest anytime soon! “I’m sure I’m Olivia’s worst nightmare!” Mattson says in character with a chuckle.
