Please welcome Sydney Walsh to the cast of GENERAL HOSPITAL as Maggie, who will be making her debut on Tuesday, April 13, as first reported by Soap Opera Digest. She will be a prisoner in Pentonville who will encounter Alexis, who is about to begin her three-year sentence for assaulting Dante.
GH is not Walsh’s daytime debut, as the actress previously played Judge Delores Anderson on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS back in 2010 when Adam went on trial. She has also had an extensive career in primetime, appearing on TV series like T.J. HOOKER, MELROSE PLACE, SILK STALKINGS, THE PRACTICE, ER, NIP/TUCK, WITHOUT A TRACE, MEDIUM, and CASTLE. On the big screen, Walsh can be seen in films like A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, Point Break, Three Men and a Little Lady, and American Gun.
Alexis recently met with a consultant Diane hired to help her adjust to a life behind bars. Irene urged her to take some boxing and self-defense lessons so she can defend herself in prison and to watch the sense of humor because it could make her enemies. Reports are that Maggie will be a friend to Alexis at Pentonville, which is good, because she’ll need all the friends she can get while locked up.
However, this is a soap, and you can never take anything at face value, so Alexis might want to keep an eye on her new pal! Keep watching GH to see how Maggie helps or hurts Alexis during her time in prison!
