More Proof Tonja Walker Will Play Olivia Jerome on GH


Ever since ABC officially announced Tonja Walker’s return to “General Hospital,” fans and industry observers have been wondering who she’ll portray. GH has been tight-lipped, but two more pieces of evidence have come to light Some Backstage Proof A photograph of a GH script lists the characters appearing in the episode, and one is “Olivia J,” reported reliable source Soap Opera News. GH fans know that the other Jerome sister is one of the few people psychotic enough to stay in hiding at a pawn shop while attempting to assassinate her own brother. Though the script’s lists air dates of Friday, February 10th and Monday February 11th, recent Tweets by Walker provide some more titillating information on her role. She’s as Excited as We Are!
