Soap operas are synonymous with giving characters a second chance at life. The producers and writers of General Hospital have resuscitated the jobs of Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson in real life by admitting the Manning family to Port Charles after One Life to Live was cancelled.
The on-screen mother-daughter duo is equally as affectionate when not playing their roles. Kassie stressed that the Manning's relocation is "a gift to the fans of One Life to Live." She added, "Not each fan watches both shows, so this way we can bring some of our OLTL fans over to GH."
