Nancy Lee Grahn's Major Milestone
On this day in 1996, Alexis Davis entered our lives and changed them for the better. Please help us congratulate @NancyLeeGrahn on her 25th Anniversary in Port Charles! #GHpic.twitter.com/FcRV8F2Urf— General Hospital (@General Hospital) 1632664801
Nancy Lee Grahn is reaching a major milestone for General Hospital. She's officially marking her 25th year playing Alexis Davis and she is sharing memories of her Port Charles experience. Sloane tells us all about her recent conversation with the star:
"She says what makes Alexis fun to play is that she's different, vibrant and unpredictable. Nancy's favorite story was the Sunny and Alexis trajectory, which she says was well done and satisfied. Her least favorite when Alexis has no purpose other than to butt into other characters' lives."
Grahn shared that there are still many stories to tell with her alter ego and looks forward to seeing what the writers have in store for her character.
