Catching Up With Constance
TVGuide's Michael Logan caught up with Constance Towers on her return to General Hospital as Helena Cassadine. In true Helena form, she returns to screw with the peeps of Port Chuck.
Ultraglam superbaddie Helena Cassadine returns to General Hospital April 13 just in time to screw with the hospital’s computer system and ruin the grand opening of the new nurse’s station. The killer granny – played by Constance Towers – will plunge the ceremony into darkness, then appear on the monitors to announce she’s back to raise hell and wreak vengeance on her grandson Nikolas (Tyler Christopher). Chaos ensues.
It looks like we have a date for the new hospital debut! Towers' return to General Hospital is only one of things happening for the actress with a guest role on the March 29th episode of Cold Case. Constance will also appear alongside John Aniston (Days of Our Lives) and former As the World Turns star Jesse Lee Soffer in The Awakening of Spring.
Next up for Towers is The Awakening of Spring, airing July 31 on the gay-themed on demand channel here! It’s an adaption of the 1891 teens ’n’ sex German play “Spring Awakening” (the basis for the hit Broadway musical) that’s set in the American Midwest at the turn of the 20th century. Towers and fellow suds villain John Aniston (Days of Our Lives’ Victor) are seen as the freaked-out parents of the lead kid, Michael, played by former soap fave Jesse Lee Soffer (As the World Turns’ Will). This being here!, expect ample nudity from the young ones.
