Soaps In Depth has learned exclusively that GREY'S ANATOMY's Chandra Wilson will be doing a guest spot on GENERAL HOSPITAL set to air on Wednesday, January 29!
"I've watched GH for 35 years," Wilson reveals. "I grew up with it. It holds such a place in my heart. Even though we've shared the same lot for 10 years I can't talk to anybody on the lot... it's weird to see them because they're supposed to be in Port Charles! I have that kind of fan disconnect."
As for how the GREY'S/GH crossover came to be, the actress is completely in the dark. "I've been talking about this for years!" she confesses. "Roger [Howarth, Franco] was visiting the GREY'S set and we talked about it. Then, the following Friday, I got the call. I asked Frank [Valentini, GH's executive producer] if this was because of Roger and he said, 'No. This has been in the works before.' So I don't know! But I'm glad it's happening!"
Is Wilson going to be playing her GREY'S alter ego, Bailey, visiting Port Charles? Our lips are sealed, but we can reveal that she'll be a patient of Kevin's. And let's just say that Wilson's GH character has plenty in common with the no-nonsense Grey Sloan Memorial surgeon! Just be sure to tune in on Tuesday, January 28!
