General Hospital (GH) has recast legacy character Brook Lynn Ashton with actress Amanda Setton. Brook will be back on the GH canvas on November 18, as reported by TVLine.
The website also published an exclusive photo showing Brook’s homecoming. The photo featured her father Ned Quartermaine (Wally Kurth) and his wife Olivia Quartermaine (Lisa LoCiecero) greeting her as she returned to Port Charles.
Brook was born in 1996 to Ned and his ex-wife Lois Cerullo (Rena Sofer). The character was SORASed in 2004 and was last seen on the soap in 2011, when she moved away to pursue a music career.
Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) once bribed Brook to seduce Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna), in order to break up his relationship with Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan). But Carly’s plan didn’t work.
Brook also agreed to be Nikolas Cassadine’s (Marcus Coloma) date for business parties. She moved into his home and the two began to develop romantic feelings for each other. Even though they’d made love, the pair couldn’t make their relationship work and parted ways as friends.
Setton is the third actress to portray Brook. The character was previously played by Adrianne León and Brooke Radding. She’s no stranger to soaps, as she played troublemaker Kimberly Andrews on One Life To Live from 2009 to 2011. Setton has also appeared in several primetime shows including The Crazy Ones, Gossip Girl, The Mindy Project, Blue Bloods and Hawaii Five-O.
How will Brook’s return affect the residents of Port Charles? And will she force Nikolas out of hiding? Stay tuned to GH to find out!
