    Jen as Serena Baldwin??

    • AJ says:

      Jen is going to Days, not GH.

    • eye says:

      It says that she is going to Days

    • The taco formerly known as Chachi says:

      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.

      • Stacey says:

        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…

        • Taco mualagaco says:

          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.

  2. TT says:

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

  3. Kaycee says:
