The soap world was all abuzz this weekend after Entertainment Weekly broke the news that primetime soap star Donna Mills would be joining daytime legend GENERAL HOSPITAL! Mills, best known for playing Abby Ewing on the classic KNOTS LANDING, is set to join GH in a secret new role that was apparently created with her in mind.

Top brass at GH are being extra hush-hush about the part, and aren't spilling any details at this point, so we'll have to wait until she begins airing in late February. Could she be a previously-unseen Cassadine? Perhaps another branch of the Jerome family tree? Who would you like her to play?
