A familiar face is headed back to Port Charles! Chandra Wilson is returning to GENERAL HOSPITAL for another appearance, this time for the return of the annual Nurses Ball! The actress is best known for her role as Dr. Miranda Bailey on the primetime drama GREY’S ANATOMY, which, like GH, shoots at Prospect Studios.
This will mark Wilson’s fourth appearance on the ABC soap. Her first was back in 2014 when she played Tina Estrada, a patient of Dr. Kevin Collins. The second was in 2018 when she portrayed family counselor Dr. Francine Massey who offered some help to Jordan, Curtis, and Stella. Then in 2019, Wilson returned to play Sydney Val Jean, a fashion editor who helped work the Nurses Ball red carpet with Nina. And TV Line is reporting that this is the role that she’ll be reprising this time around when the Nurses Ball returns!
Bringing back the Nurses Ball is just part of GH’s plans for celebrating the soap’s 60th anniversary on Saturday, April 1. Things will actually kick off on Wednesday, March 29, with the special episode honoring the late Sonya Eddy (Epiphany). Then, starting on Monday, April 3, the Nurses Ball will be back with all the fabulous fashions, exciting musical performances, and incredible drama you expect.
The GH Nurses Ball began back in 1994 and the charity event raising money and awareness for HIV/AIDS was held every year until 2001. After a too-long break, the ball was revived in 2013 and again continued to be held annually until 2020 when, due to the COVID pandemic, it was done as a telethon to support front-line workers. There was no Nurses Ball in either 2021 or 2022, so fans have really been looking forward to its return this year.
So make sure you mark your calendars and dress up in your finest to attend this year’s Nurses Ball!
