ASHLEY JONES ON GH GIG: "I'VE BEEN SCARED TO TELL ANYONE!"

Now it can be told: Ashley Jones (Bridget, B&B) has joined the GH ranks as Parker Forsyth, the professor with whom Kristina has an inappropriate relationship. "They were so secretive about it that I've been scared to tell anyone," grins the actress. "They made it very clear that [Parker's gender] was a reveal and they didn't want me to give it away." Jones has shot two episodes so far, and is thrilled to be part of the show. "I've watched GENERAL HOSPITAL over the years, so it's just a pleasure to see all these people on set and in and out of the makeup room." Her first day, she even ran into her B&B uncle, William deVry (ex-Storm), who plays GH's Julian. "It made me chuckle to myself about how small the soap world is! I still think of him as my uncle." For his part, deVry says, "GH is very lucky to have her. She's such a professional and a lovely person."
