The news (hold back those tears!) comes nearly two weeks after it was announced that Genie Francis would be reprising her role as Laura Spencer for a couple of episodes. Francis, of course, played Geary’s TV wife for several years on the show. The pair were part of the biggest supercouple on GH, with their characters tying the knot in 1981. The wedding episode was watched by over 30 million viewers.
