Alison Sweeney, who played Sami Brady on NBC’s Days of our Lives and left the show back in May will ow be directing a GH episode. Being a motherhood, hosting the Biggest Loser, and being an author will not stop her from putting on another hat.
Frank Valentini GH's EP told Soap Opera Digest that after Sweeney had observed his directing team he asked her to join them! “She’s sort of paid her dues and spent some time learning the show,” so when an opening presented itself, “I asked her if she was available and she said yes.” Sweeney will direct her first episode this month!
Alison had previously directed some episodes at Days of our Lives and so will be directing episodes for GH in the future. She tweeted her response , when asked if she was going to direct for GH, Ali tweeted: “Super psyched. Working on the scripts right no
Could Sweeney be tempted to step in front of the camera at GH? How would Ali fit in, in Port Charles? Can you imagine a cast of super women like Laura Wright (Carly), Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis), Jane Elliot (Tracy)and Michelle Stafford (Nina), Maura West (Ava), Alison Sweeney. Who would take the prime spot do you think. What a catfight that could produce.
General Hospital can be seen on ABC at 2 p.m. weekdays.
