Villains turning into heroes? Girl next door transforms into manipulative seductress? How about a person simply snapping at the drop of hat? Anything and everything is possible when it comes to the world of soap operas. General Hospital (GH) and its characters are no exception to this rule. During its over 50-year tenure, GH has seen residents come and go from Port Charles, and there have been many surprising twists and turns that have come from the show’s characters. Alas, below are GH’s seven most shocking character transformations.
7. Alexis Davis
As a successful attorney, Alexis Davis has always been a positive and powerful female role model within the soaps. She is smart, strong, doesn’t back down, and as a mother of three daughters, she always seems to have her act together. Sadly, GH viewers have seen a drastic and shocking transformation in Alexis as of late. Sure, she’s had a difficult year. The love of her life Julian Jerome has not only lied to her (ruining their marriage and vows), but also almost tried to kill her. Her career has crumbled dramatically as well. Unfortunately, she’s been on a downward spiral turning to alcohol and away from her family and career. A character that was once a fighter is now a victim. Here’s to hoping Alexis can snap out of this slump.
