Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Janet Hubert is joining General Hospital as Yvonne, a love interest for Mike (Max Gail) at the nursing home. EW.com reports that Yvonne will end up having a connection to the folks of Port Charles.
This isn’t her appearance on a soap; Hubert also featured on “All My Children,” and she played Lisa, the mother of Evangeline Williamson, on “One Life to Live.”
A former Broadway star, Hubert played Vivian Banks on “Fresh Prince” from Seasons 1-3 (1990 -1993). She was replaced by Daphne Reid for the rest of the show’s run.
“General Hospital” airs weekdays on ABC. Hubert’s first episode airs Friday, Dec. 7.
