General Hospital has expanded its cast -- just in time for Sweeps. Julie Mond has been cast as the former girlfriend of Patrick Drake. This is Mond's first soap opera role, but she has experience as a film and television actress.
There's a potential monkeywrench looming for Robin and Patrick's relationship -- and it, or rather she
, will arrive in Port Charles just in time for November Sweeps.
Newcomer Julie Mond has been cast in the contract role of Lisa Niles, the former girlfriend of Patrick Drake. A show spy tells soap
that Lisa is more than just a former fling for Patrick and her arrival could cause a lot of headaches for Patrick and Robin.
This will be Mond's first daytime role, but the actress will join the General Hospital cast with a handful of primetime credits and a respectable film career.
Mond has appeared in the shorts Ladies Room
and Ground Control
, as well as the feature films Something Ne
w and Hangman
. Her latest project, Fugu
e, is currently in post-production and is slated for a 2010 release. On the small screen, Mond has made the rounds to the well-known procedural dramas, including Cold Case
and CSI: NY
Mond first airs November 18.
