That’s actress Juliette Jeffers playing nurse Phyllis Caulfield on GENERAL HOSPITAL, making her debut in the Nov. 12, 2020, episode of the soap. Viewers might recognize the actress from her many guest-starring roles in primetime on series like CHICAGO MED, ALL RISE, MODERN FAMILY, and CRIMINAL MINDS. GH isn’t technically her daytime debut, as her IMDb page lists a 1992 episode of CBS sudser THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as her very first acting credit.
When Valentin Cassadine was trying to help Nina Reeves locate her long-lost child, he went to get information out of her mother, Madeline Reeves. When Nina had gotten pregnant, Madeline had drugged her in an attempt to kill the baby, but instead, Nina went into a coma and the baby survived. Nina confessed she’d removed Nina from Chrichton-Clark Clinic and hired a private nurse to care for her until she delivered and she could put the baby up for adoption.
After receiving a locket from her childhood, Nina learned from a jeweler that half of it was missing and she suspected her long-lost daughter (or son!) might have the other piece. With the help of Jasper “Jax” Jacks, Nina located the man who made the necklace in New York City, who remembered making the piece of jewelry. He found a receipt with the name Phyllis Caulfield and Nina remembered her as the nurse who took care of her when she came out of her coma.
Curtis Ashford did some detective work for Nina and narrowed down the search for Phyllis to a handful of nurses and eventually found the right nurse. When Nina saw her in the Metro Court, she recognized Phyllis immediately and hoped she would be able to tell her what happened to her child.
