According to TVLINE and other sources, General Hospital has invited Jackie Zeman back to the show as Bobbie Spencer and she has agreed. No details are known if this is for a short-term arch or more long-term like Genie Francis, all I know is it’s really very good news.
It’s also long overdue. Bobbie was once the heart and soul of GH and the fact that she was just dismissed w/out merit was heartbreaking. As Carly’s mother and Luke’s sister she should have been around for years.February 6, 2013 at 3:33 pm #423602
First person I thought of was you. Wonder if there is going to be a casting call for a new Lucas too.February 6, 2013 at 3:37 pm #423603
Thanks tennisfreak! I am a MASSIVE Jackie Zeman fan, as evidant by my signature! I just hope this is for a long-term gig and not some short-arch that writes her out forever. They need to have Bobbie either move in with Carly and help with raising Carly’s kids (whatever is left of them) or have Bobbie buy the brownstone back and have that be the new gathering point for new characters to live.February 6, 2013 at 3:42 pm #423604
Hopefully she isn’t placed in the background with no real story the way Denise Alexander was for years when she came back.February 6, 2013 at 10:06 pm #423605
FINALLY!February 7, 2013 at 8:05 am #423606
YAY! Can I tell you guys, few things make me happier than when someone around here gets the thing they’ve been wishing for in their signature, so I’m thrilled for you, Boidiva! Hopefully this return is great and Bobbie continues to be a presence at GH for years to come.February 7, 2013 at 7:36 pm #423607
It just never made sense for Bobbie to be totally absent from “GH”. She had organic, true connections to the canvas and she just vanished.February 16, 2013 at 7:20 pm #423608
Unfortunately, you’re all going to be surprised when Bobbie shows up looking like a warped version of Melanie Griffith and Goldie Hawn. Zeman, no doubt a lovely and talented woman, has had way too much plastic surgery and it’s distracting. I’m not sure we are even going to recognize her. Additionally, I hate the way Leslie Charleson has let society ruin her face. I HOPE I AM WRONG. I love Bobbie Spencer Brock Meyer Jones Cassadine just as much as the rest of you. She epitomized the soap vixen turned tortured heroine during the 1980s and 1990s – – – and was unceremoniously backburnered in favor of her younger demographically appealing long-lost shrew of a daughter. It’s true and you know it.
