General Hospital (GH) fans were stunned by Michelle Stafford’s decision to leave the show, leaving Nina Reeves in limbo as ABC scrambled to find a replacement. Many dedicated fans thought that Cady McClain, who is Jon Lindstrom’s (Ryan Chamberlain/Kevin Collins), real-life wife. She is a soap opera legend and she would be great in the role. However, yesterday People reported that Cady was not selected as Cynthia Watros is the new face of Nina.
Even though Cady was not under consideration for the role, she took to Twitter to thank her fans for campaigning and hoping that she would be the new face of Nina.

GH Spoilers– Michelle Stafford Exits In June
Stafford’s contract does not expire until the end of May. She will likely appear as Nina until the very end of May, with Cynthia stepping into the role at the beginning of June. ABC has not revealed a timeline for the actor swap yet, but it’s kind of far out yet for the soap to starting talking about Michelle’s exit.
It would have been great if Cady could have taken over the role of Nina. Quite frankly, no one does crazy like the gorgeous Cady McClain. She played the broken and unbalanced Kelly Andrews so well on Y&R, which ironically, Cynthia also played the role just before Cady took over the role.
It’s great that Cady took time to thank her fans for the support and congratulated Cynthia Watros for her new gig. Don’t forget to come back later for more General Hospital (GH) spoilers, news, and casting updates!
As always, more detailed spoilers and a full collection of pictures for the week in question will appear on Soap Opera Spy, where there will be more clues and hints over exactly what’s going on.
