It was finally happening, General Hospital icon, Genie Francis (Laura Spencer) was finally getting a storyline that had viewers happy and ready for the future. But there has been an abrupt ending and change in story and according to Daytime Confidential, Francis, one of the greatest actresses to have ever been on the show was bumped to recurring. Of Course, being on recurring could mean we still see the actress on the show but most likely not as often as we would if she had a contract hence fans decision to fight back.
Fans considered it utter disrespect for 'GH' to bump such a talented, outstanding, legendary and respected lady in the business. Especially with Laura getting a healthy and happy marriage and a potential career going against Ned Ashton (Wally Kurth). Laura's fight for Charles Street and Mary Mae's legacy engaged viewers so much so that in return fans are now fighting back. According to fans, it's now time to fight for Laura and Genie. Fans went ahead to create a petition to the show in hopes that they will reconsider their decision to drop the actress. Will 'GH' listen? Of course, some wouldn't mind her going back to play Diana Colville on 'Days of Our Lives' or Genevieve Atkinson on 'The Young and the Restless'. But, for the many viewers from the Luke and Laura era, having Genie remain on 'GH' would mean everything. In so doing, you can help, sign the petition and send a message, #GenieIsGH!
