Casting News: GH Has A New Kate!


Maxie's MIA boss, Kate Howard, will soon be back to Port Charles, but she will be looking a bit different after all that time recently spent in Paris and Milan: GENERAL HOSPITAL has cast Kelly Sullivan to replace Megan Ward in the contract role of Olivia's cousin -- and Sonny's ex-fiancée. While Sullivan has had bit parts on ONE LIFE TO LIVE and AS THE WORLD TURNS, this marks her first major daytime role. She also guest-starred on LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT as a murdered astronaut, and will appear in several upcoming movies, including the thriller 333 with SUPERNATURAL's Corin Nemec and Camryn Grimes (ex-Cassie, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS). Sullivan will make her GH debut in the early fall.

In other GH casting news, the soap will be bringing two new characters into the fold this fall: Ewan Keenan, a hunky thirtysomething doctor, and Gina Soleita, the 19-year-old only daughter of a New York crime boss. Both are contract roles scheduled to start taping in September.
