General Hospital's Robin Riker gives a few details about her "multifaceted character," Naomi Dreyfus, and opens up about working with Rebecca Budig (Hayden).

Father's Day may be one of the next major holidays on the calendar, but this Friday will be all about a mom on General Hospital. As previously reported, soap opera veteran Robin Riker (ex-Elizabeth Logan, The Bold and the Beautiful; ex-Maureen Lockhart, Days of our Lives) is headed to Port Charles as the mother of Hayden (Rebecca Budig), and the actress teases that her new alter ego is one for the books.

"She was a wife of a Bernie Madoff-type character and was strong and could stand up for herself, but she did love her daughter," Riker says in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest. "She was a multifaceted character, which is the thing that interested me the most."

As for working with Budig, whom she'd never met before landing in Port Charles, the actress says it's a dream come true. "We're having a little lovefest," she says of their connection and on-screen chemistry as mother and daughter. "She's a doll! She's gorgeous and smart and sweet, so it's lovely to work with an actor like her."

If Naomi's name sounds oddly familiar, there's probably a good reason for it. In ABC's recent mini-series about the real Bernie Madoff, the role of Madoff was played by Richard Dreyfus. Coincidence? We don't think so.

To find out how Naomi will fit onto the canvas, be sure to tune in for Riker's GH debut on Friday, June 3.

What kind of shenanigans are you expecting from Hayden's mom? How do you think the character will shake up the canvas? We want to hear from you -- and there are many ways you can share your thoughts.
