‘General Hospital’ Cast News: Former 'The Young and the Restless' Star Michelle Stafford Gets Next Air Date for ‘GH’

Ex-"The Young and the Restless" actress Michelle Stafford joined "General Hospital" this month and appeared at the end of the episode that aired on May 1. Michelle was introduced as Nina Clay, Silas Clay's wife. In the episode, she awakened from her coma.
According to ABC, Michelle's next air date falls in June. She will appear again as Nina on June 3, 2014. The future episodes will reveal the reason behind Nina's condition.
Michelle Stafford was sneaked into the studio in order to shoot her debut episode for "General Hospital."
"GH has been on hiatus for the past two weeks and Michelle doesn't really start taping until we resume. But we realized that as soon as she did, the news would be out there long before her episodes began airing. It was actually Frank's idea to try to slip her into an earlier show that had already been written and shot, so we could take everyone by surprise. So he snuck her into the studio recently, at the end of the day, to tape the one scene you just saw. That was inserted after the fact. We've been sweating it out ever since that it would stay under wraps!" revealed head writer Ron Carlivati to Daytime Confidential.
Michelle wanted to do more comedy after quitting "The Young and the Restless." When Daytime asked if Nina will crack some witty ones in the upcoming episodes, Ron mentioned that they want to make full use of Michelle's talent.
"I've watched all the episodes and agree; The Stafford Project is hilarious. And you're right that we love to write comedy at GH. But Nina may not be in the jokiest mood after awakening from a decades-long coma. That said, we plan to take full advantage of all of Michelle's strengths and talents. Just give us time!"
"General Hospital" episodes air weekdays on ABC.
