Mother's Day may be over, but it's just about to begin for General Hospital's Hayden (Rebecca Budig), because her mom is on the way to Port Charles.
Serial Scoop reports that the ABC soap has cast daytime alum Robin Riker (ex-Beth Logan, The Bold and the Beautiful; ex-Maureen Lockhart, Days of our Lives) as Naomi Dreyfus, the woman who gave birth to Port Charles' latest troublemaking character.
As fans may recall, the original casting call released last month described the character as a "Caucasian, 60-65. Strong, dynamic presence," and asked for well-known, name actresses only. And Riker fits the bill, having appeared on shows like DeVanity, Last Man Standing, Bones, Big Love, Boston Legal, Reba, and Six Feet Under -- to name a few.
Watch for Riker's GH debut on Friday, June 3.
