Martha Byrne as Lily (As the World Turns)According to our sources at SOAPNet, Jason Thompson (Patrick, General Hospital), confirmed that Martha Byrne (ex Lily, As the World Turns, script writer, Bold & the Beautiful) is definitely heading to Port Charles.

Thompson spilled the beans at last week's StageCoach music festival at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, CA.  Although he did not get all that specific, he did say that some pretty fun stuff was coming up involving Byrne and a few choice denizens of Port Charles.

Fans of As the World Turns will remember that Byrne left the soap after a career there that spanned decades. She and the producers could not reach contract terms.

Byrne will play the character of Andrea, Mayor Floyd's wife. We've learned that her storyline not only introduces her character, but will tie together many of your favorite Port Charles residents. Byrne's first airdate is June 17.
