General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that a new character is headed to town, but the details are being kept under wraps. EW reports that Veronica Cartwright has been cast in a top-secret GH role, which is sure to shake things up. Cartwright is a veteran actress who’s been featured in several great films and TV shows. You might recognize her from Alien, L.A. Law or The Witches of Eastwick.
Cartwright also recently appeared as a fortune teller in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Could her GH character have a bit of an eerie side, too? She definitely won’t be some soft and cuddly sweetheart, that’s for sure! General Hospital spoilers say Cartwright’s character will face off with Ava Jerome (Maura West) at some point during her five-episode arc.
It takes a certain kind of person to be able to go head to head with Ava, so that’s a good hint right there. Does this woman tie in with Ava’s past in some way? Could Cartwright portray Ava’s mother or perhaps someone Ava once wronged? Regardless, General Hospital viewers will be curious to see who Cartwright’s playing and why she’ll clash with Ava.
If you’re wondering when to expect Cartwright’s debut, you should tune in around early July. That’s when her mysterious stint should kick off. On Twitter, GH fans were divided on the topic of this character addition. Some were quite excited to welcome Cartwright to the cast, especially since she’s only sticking around for five episodes.
“Interesting,” one viewer said. “I’m game. Why not? Daytime is like nighttime…all series do stunt casting. Just write it well.. we know the actress has the talent & our attention. Cool.” Another fan insisted, “Kind of intrigued! She’s an amazing actress so hopefully whatever/whoever she’s there to shake up…it’s gonna be good!”
Of course, there were other General Hospital watchers who weren’t as thrilled. GH has a pretty big cast already, so some fans piped up that they wanted to see fan favorites and legacy characters used more instead. However, we mentioned this is a just a five-episode arc. That sounds like a fun summer surprise and really isn’t worth complaining about.
Cartwright won’t be stealing any spots or hogging much airtime. In fact, this character could end up giving Ava some great material to work with. There are only positives here if you’re a fan of Ava and hot drama!
