GH casts Northern Exposure star Diane Delano in new role

General Hospital has yet another new face heading to Port Charles: Diane Delano, who'll be playing the role of Margarethe.

As the World Turns alum Trent Dawson (ex-Henry Coleman) is heading to General Hospital's Port Charles later this month, and he'll be bringing a familiar face with him.

Northern Exposure and Popular star Diane Delano (ex-Agent Hilda, Days of our Lives) has been cast as Huxley's assistant, Margarethe, reports Soap Opera Digest.

"I actually reached out to [co-head writer] Jean Passanante on Facebook to find out how the name is pronounced," Dawson told the publication of her GH role. "She said, ‘You know the song, How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria? [from The Sound of Music] -- Sister Margaretta, that's what I want it to sound like.' So, right before I had to say the line, I was hurrying to find the song on YouTube!"

Delano also appeared in "Fumbling thru the Pieces," a web series starring One Life to Live's Hillary B. Smith (ex-Nora Buchanan).

At this time, there's no word on exactly when Delano first airs, but Dawson's Huxley debuts Monday, June 13, meaning she won't be too far behind.
