Chloe Lanier (Nelle) is set to exit General Hospital, opting to not renew her contract. The actress first appeared on GH during the show’s special anniversary episode in 2015 as Patricia Spencer in flashbacks. In 2016, the debuted in the new role of Janelle “Nelle” Hayes, who turned out to be Carly’s secret stepsister. Lanier won the Outstanding Younger Actress Emmy this past year. The actress wrapped up filming on set this past week, so look for Nelle to make her Port Charles exit later this summer.
Now we know why KFC is live tweeting GH! Daytime Confidential confirmed that Disney-ABC have secured a branded content deal with the fast food chain where in addition to the brand live tweeting the soap, George Hamilton will appear as Col. Sanders in a new arc alongside Kirsten Storms’ Maxie and Emme Rylan’s Lulu… Because when you can’t write a decent story for women in their 30s whose male co-stars have recently quit, you have no choice but to write them into a branded content deal!
