GH NightShifter gets daytime role


Nazanin Boniadi (Leyla, GH & NightShift)The staff at General Hospital is getting an extra helping hand now that Night Shift's Nurse Leyla has been promoted.  Nazanin Boniadi is the first -- and doubtfully the last! -- actress to cross over from the evening sudser and be awarded a contract with its daytime counterpart.  As such, Leyla will continue to immerse herself in hospital life as she desperately tries to find some kind of camaraderie among her colleagues, including Robin (Kimberly McCullough), Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Epiphany (Sonya Eddy).     

The raven-haired beauty has played a key role in Robin and Patrick's love affair; it's no secret that Leyla is willing to provide Patrick with extra TLC whenever she can much to Robin's chagrin.  It's also fair to note that Leyla is not as studious as the other student nurses.  However, this may change now that her role has been expanded.  The show may also decide to explore the guilt Boniadi's alter ego holds over a poor decision that ultimately ended in a patient's death.   

There is no doubt that the character will continue to swoon over Patrick, but could there also be a romance in the works for Leyla and Jason (Steve Burton)?  Remember, Jason would know Leyla from his community service work as a janitor at the hospital. An even sweeter arc would lead Leyla to slowly unravel the mystery surrounding a burned Ms. Barrett... like a first name!
