Now it has been confirmed that one of her castmates is doing the same.

Seemingly out of nowhere, he fired Gina Tognoni and decided to replace her with the woman who had originated the role of Phyllis Summers. In a move designed to put the focus back on core characters, Adam, Kevin and, now, "Crazy Chloe" will be back in action. Elizabeth Hendrickson's character was put on the back burner on "General Hospital" and her full potential was never realized.

Billy Miller left "Y&R" to portray Jason but when Burton returned he became his twin, Drew. Tristian Rogers has the dual roles of Colin in Genoa City and Robert in Port Charles.

'GH' may possibly recast DA Dawson

"General Hospital" believed the role of Valerie would not be recast because she character was rarely seen, but they were wrong.. Once Britny Sarpy went to "The Young and the Restless" Paulina Bugembe stepped in as Carly's cousin. Even though Margaux is not a major player in Port Charles, the town still needs a District Attorney. For this reason, it is possible that Margaux Hendrickson's role could be recast.

"Y&R" fans will be delighted to have "Cray Chloe" back in Genoa City where she will be involved in a front burner storyline. Adam Newman has just come home and is about to be shot. Naturally, if Ms. Mitchell is in town she will be the number one suspect. In 2016 she caused an explosion in a cabin where she had drugged and tied up Victor Newman's son. She felt he deserved to die because he had killed her daughter Delia in a hit and run.
