“General Hospital” (GH) spoilers tease that Athena Cassadine has been cast and will be played by Jazmyn Skye Vale. Is this the daughter of Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) and Stavros Cassadine (Robert Kelker-Kelly)?
We know that Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) rescued the Stavros-Lulu embryo before it could be destroyed in the Crichton-Clark Clinic fire, but Lulu is clueless that her stolen fertilized egg survived the blaze.
This casting news is great timing because many events are unfolding that will lead a whopping ten Port Charles characters to Cassadine Island in coming days and weeks. Among the group will be Lulu and Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna).
Dante and Lulu will be following Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) and Kevin Collins (Jon Lindström) but it looks like someone from Port Charles already knows Athena Cassadine very well – Jake Webber (Hudson West)!
Jake will soon share with Franco (Roger Howarth) that he spent time with a woman and her daughter on Cassadine Island. Is that woman the surrogate that Helena hired to give birth to her grandchild? Does Lulu have a daughter she doesn’t know about?
GH spoilers tease that Franco will share what Jake told him with Liz Webber (Rebecca Herbst) and they will take off for Cassadine Island independent of the other Port Chuck parties heading that way. Liz wants to find out more about Jake’s captivity.
This woman seems to be the key for Liz but she will be stunned to find out that the kid Jake was playing with was Nikolas Cassadine’s (Tyler Christopher) much younger sister! In fact, Athena will be Nikolas’ sister-niece.
That’s a complicated family tree, but since she’s the daughter of Stavros (presumably) that makes her Nikolas’ sister. But as the daughter of Lulu, Nik’s sister, that also makes the girl his niece. There’s a Greek tragedy brewing there!
Plus, to Spencer Cassadine (Nicolas Bechtel), Athena will be an aunt/cousin. Wow. GH spoilers reveal that Nikolas is not dead and faked his accident to get out of his marriage to Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig) so we expect him to be on the Greek isle as well.
Lulu will be shocked to find out about this unknown daughter, particularly since she and Dante were just talking about expanding their family. The Cassadine Island adventure promises to reveal one explosive secret after another!
Congratulations to Jazmyn Skye Vale on her casting as Athena Cassadine. We can’t wait to see how her story unfolds. Looks like she could be a permanent addition to the GH character canvas because Lulu should bring her daughter home with her!
