Genie Francis (as Laura, GH)What is now General Hospital's loss has become the Young and the Restless' gain.

Genie Francis, one half of the iconic soap opera couple, General Hospital's Luke & Laura, is on her way to Genoa City to take on the role of Cane Ashby's mother. Francis was last seen on General Hospital when she returned in 2006 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Luke and Laura's wedding thanks to a miracle drug that awoke Laura from her catatonic state for a short time.  She was nominated, and won, a Daytime Emmy Award for that brief, month-long apperance.

This breaking news comes on the heels of Young and the Restless fans mounting a campaign to get Daniel Goddard, who plays Cane Ashby, back on their favorite soap after he was killed off last February. They went so far as to hire a plane with a banner that said "Y&R Fans Want Daniel Goddard as Cane Ashby," to fly over CBS Televison City in Los Angeles where the Young and the Restless is taped.

Y&R assures Soapdom that Goddard will indeed be back, as he is a contract player. And to boot, Daytime Emmy winner, Genie Francis, debuts on the country's No.1 soap as Cane's mother.

Watch for Francis to begin airing in late May. Will Goddard return as Cane before or after Francis appears? Stay tuned to the Young and the Restless to find out.

As the World Stops Turning: Thoughts on the Cancellation of As the World Turns

With candid comments from Helen Wagner (Nancy), Eileen Fulton (Lisa), Yvonne Perry (ex Rosanna) and Jeanne Cooper (Kay, Young and the Restless)

When I heard (on Soapdom) that As the World Turns is being cancelled, all I can say is that my afternoons will never be the same. I come before you to reveal that when I heard the news, it was like my world suddenly stopped turning. In fact, you can say, it crashed.

Not only as a writer/reporter have I done stories on the show and its stars, but I also have been an avid watcher and fan for more years than I care to admit. I've visited the set, met and interviewed many of the stars, and can truly say that
