General Hospital isn't finished bringing back the vets.
Thaao Penghlis, best known for his role as Andre and Tony DiMera on Days of Our Lives, will be returning as Victor Cassadine on General Hospital after over thirty years.
The last time we saw the handsome Victor was in 1981 when Robert Scorpio put him in prison. He was presumed dead at some point.
The other Cassadines, Mikkos, Anthony, as well as Alexandria Quartermaine, froze to death in Mikkos' ice chamber, but don't count on it. Stavros was frozen, too, though deliberately by Helena, and look how many times he's shown up.
The 67-year-old Penghlis (he turns 68 on December 15) went on to great success on Days of Our Lives, receiving an Emmy nomination for his work.
He was a costar of The New Mission Impossible from 1988-1990 and played Micah on Santa Barbara in 1992-1993. He has guest-starred on many prime time shows over the years, including Hart to Hart, Magnum P.I., Who's the Boss, and Moon Over Miami, as well as films and mini-series.
The Ice Princess storyline is one of the most famous in General Hospital history and started the war between Luke Spencer and the Cassadine family. The IP story was revisited briefly when Stavros kidnapped Lulu.
We'll be seeing Victor at the end of January.

The word is that GH is putting out fake spoilers because there are some major surprises coming.
I know what they are (sort of, and they could be fake as well) but I am not revealing anything. I believe in the element of surprise. In fact, one of the reasons soaps aren't as popular as they were is because of people on the Internet blabbing every plot point ahead of time.
I can't speak for the other soaps but General Hospital is very strict about what spoilers are released.
I was criticized once for not giving away anything, but the spoilers and future spoilers are not on the home page because not everyone wants to know what's happening ahead of time.
But don't believe everything you read.
Move over, Sound of Music.
Last week, General Hospital had its highest ratings in almost six years, with 3.3 viewers.

In a year over year comparison, General Hospital had a 20 percent increase in total viewers (3.3 million), a 21 percent increase in women 18-49, and a 25 percent in women 25-54.
This is the largest increase of any daytime drama.
