General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Lindsay Hartley is speaking out about her upcoming GH debut. Most fans have heard by now that Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall) will be temporarily replaced by Hartley. Monaco had some mask issues when she first reported to set, which let to her going into a 14-day quarantine despite multiple negative tests – that’s according to her mother, Carmina Monaco.
Monaco is healthy and is set to work again next week, but Hartley’s had a blast filling in for her. On Twitter, Hartley acknowledged that she was facing quite a challenge.
Sam is a popular role, and Monaco is a beloved cast member. It’s no easy task for an actress to slide in a spot like this. Hartley seems honored to be serving as a temporary recast until Monaco’s back in action.
“Some big shoes to fill…precious too. I hope you enjoy watching Sam as much as I have enjoyed playing her, temporarily,” Hartley tweeted.
As an alum of Passions, All My Children and Days of Our Lives, Hartley certainly has plenty of fans cheering her on. She received tons of supportive messages from viewers who are eager to see Hartley’s version of Sam hit the screen.
Of course, there are always going to be a few complainers. Some people have chosen to be ridiculous and rude when Hartley’s just helping out! It’s great that Hartley was ready and willing to work on what we can assume was very short notice.
Hartley’s doing General Hospital fans a favor by making sure Sam’s scenes could still be filmed – and it’s just for two weeks anyway.
Fortunately, many viewers are being reasonable and are even willing to have some fun with this. It’s nice to see Hartley making a soapy comeback, even if it’s only a brief one.
“Thank you so much for stepping into her shoes to keep her story going,” one GH fan tweeted Hartley. “We appreciate you!” “Excited to see you back on daytime (even if it’s just temporarily),” said another. “You’ll do great!! Oh & welcome to General Hospital.”
We’ll offer more updates as other GH news pops up. General Hospital spoilers say Sam will bond with Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) during the week of August 3-7. Carly and Sam will find some common ground, so stay tuned to see how they come together.
