Popular Grey’s Anatomy star returns to General Hospital for a highly-anticipated episode
Chandra Wilson is taking a leave from Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital to turn up on an episode of General Hospital
Chandra Wilson, star of Grey’s Anatomy, will take a break from the long-running drama series to make a return appearance on the popular ABC soap opera General Hospital.
Wilson will briefly portray the character Sydney Val Jean, a fashion editor for Crimson magazine. The character will come to the General Hospital-created town of Port Charles in an upcoming episode to create havoc at the highly anticipated black-tie Nurses Ball.
According to Pop Culture, Bailey’s character will engage in a head-to-head battle with the Crimson editor-in-chief Nina Clay-Cassadine, portrayed by Michelle Stafford, on the event’s red carpet. It seems this heated rivalry will make the HIV/AIDS fundraising event on the show a must-see for devoted watchers.
PEOPLE magazine provided a teaser of Wilson’s upcoming role with a photo of her in a sparkling, black evening gown. Additional details of the appearance shared on PEOPLE were provided by Stafford, who raved on Twitter about working with Wilson on the upcoming episode.
“This was AMAZING for me!! To work with this shining STAR,” Stafford gushed.
