    • Jen is going to Days, not GH.

    • It says that she is going to Days

    • That was the general consensus but now it seems like Kristen Alderson might be playing Serena Baldwin on GH.

      I think that Jen Lilley will be going to Days as the new Belle Brady.

      If that happens, it would be really ironic.

      • Except didn’t post say it’s NOT a recast? Kirsten Storms and Martha Madison held the role before. So taking on the role would be a recast…Of course it would be ironic…

        • To my recollection, Jen Lilley has never been on Days before.

          So this can go down one of 2 ways.

          Belle got a ton of plastic surgery and was severely DeSORASED.


          JL is playing an entirely new character.

          It’s probably going to be Jeannie Donovan or the baby that Kristen lost with John.

  • Perhaps she’ll be playing Kristen’s daughter via Stefano “She’s your sister!” “She’s your daughter!”
