Then ‘General Hospital’ news broke that Genie Frances inked a three-year deal with the ABC soap and we here at Soap Opera Spy are excited. We love our legacy characters and Laura has been beloved by GH fans for more than 30 years.
Here’s 7 reasons we’re thrilled with Genie Francis’ lengthy contract:

#2 Laura can look for love
Luke always ruined any other chance Laura had at love including her past marriages with Scotty Baldwin [Kin Shriner] and Stefan Cassadine [Stephen Nichols].
