'General Hospital' keeping Knight's role secret for now

Rumors say that Knight's new role has not yet been revealed but that will come in time. It won't stop viewers from speculating about the character he will portray or if he will have scenes with James Patrick Stuart.

Vernee Watson who plays Stella Henry portrayed Will Smith's mother on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and Janet Huber was her sister Vi, AKA Will's aunt Vivian. Huber is currently on "General Hospital" in the role of Mike Corbin's new wife Yvonne but she and her former Fresh Prince do not interact. Keeping this in mind, Valentin might never cross paths with the new character in Port Charles.
