Genie Francis Joins 'Y&R

The most famous female star of 'General Hospital,' Emmy-winnerGenie Francis, is coming back to the soaps -- but on 'The Young and the Restless' this time. So forget about Laura returning to Port Charles to save Luke from his alcoholic haze on 'GH.' Genie will be heading to Genoa City to play Cane Ashby's mother.

Since Cane's just a ghost now, you can expect Mama Ashby to be flying to Wisconsin to meet her daughter-in-law Lily, and Cane's children, twins Matilda and Charlie.

What's intriguing is that Francis will likely be working with Tristan Rogers as Colin, Cane's Aussie mob boss father. Like Francis, Rogers is best known from his tenure on 'GH,' where he played super-spy Robert Scorpio. Francis's first appearance on-camera will be in May.
