Alley Mills Dishes the Heather/Esme Twist on GENERAL HOSPITAL


When Heather unmasked herself as The Hook who had attacked Josslyn and Britt on GENERAL HOSPITAL, it was quite a shock for viewers who were still reeling from the recent revelation that she is Esme’s mother!

“The stuff with Ryan is very dark,” Alley Mills (Heather) told Soap Opera Digest. “They had a really weird relationship years ago and what resulted from that is Esme. It’s clear that there was pain involved in their weird relationship. But what I imagine is that with all their sort of dark wounds, they were very attracted to each other.”

The actress has also filled in some blanks for herself regarding her character’s background and how it influences her current actions in Port Charles. “I’ve made up stuff in my mind about her relationship with her father that was not good,” she explained, “and that sort of justifies her vengeance track, that she just wants to get even with everybody that’s mean. And she thinks she should!”

Still, some GH fans aren’t entirely convinced that Heather has been The Hook all along and suspect that she may, in fact, be helping continue Esme’s initial attacks after they were interrupted. Of course, Heather has no idea that Esme is pregnant, given that the two have not yet come face-to-face, but that day shouldn’t be too far off now!

“I just met Avery [Kristen Pohl, Esme], finally, at the studio, and I’m in love with her,” Mills confided. “She is just an amazing child. She is so talented. I’ve been watching her on screen, oh, my goodness, she is so good. And she’s a great little seductress, too! The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!”

What will happen if Esme and Heather join forces? The mind boggles! Stay tuned to GH to see how this twisted storyline continues to unfold!
