When Trent Dawson debuts on GH later this month as Huxley, viewers will also meet his character’s assistant, Margarethe, played by NORTHERN EXPOSURE/POPULAR alum Diane Delano, who portrayed FBI Agent Hilda on DAYS. “I actually reached out to [Co-Head Writer] Jean Passanante on Facebook to find out how the name is pronounced,” Dawson tells Digest. “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!”
