Never say never.
Constance Towers, who is 89 years young, is returning to ABC’s General Hospital after several years away.
Towers, who had an impressive movie and Broadway career long before the soap, plays Helena Cassadine. Her character died on screen of a heart attack years ago but that doesn’t mean anything on a daytime drama.
According to her Facebook account, Towers’ airdates are May 5th and May 8th. It’s unclear if Helena is alive, a ghost, or something else. And remember– Towers isn’t the oldest actor on a soap. Bill Hayes, 97, appears regularly on “Days of our Lives.”
