A familiar face is returning to Port Charles. After exiting ABC’s General Hospital 26 years ago, Rena Sofer will be returning to reprise her Daytime Emmy-winning role as Lois Cerullo, according to People.
Her return comes as her ex-husband Ned (played by her real-life ex-husband Wally Kurth) is suffering from amnesia and is convinced that he’s Eddie Maine, his rock-star alter ego from the ’90s.

Lois fell in love with Eddie and the two wed, but Lois later learned his true identity was the wealthy Ned Ashton. She also learned Eddie was a bigamist. He was forced to wed Katherine Bell (Mary Beth Evans), who was blackmailing Ned’s family, the Quartermaines. That temporarily ended the marriage between Lois and Ned/Eddie. They eventually remarried but divorced a second time when Ned chose his family and fortune over her.
In the current storyline, Ned is married to Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), but the union is strained because of Ned’s amnesia. Cue the return of Sofer’s Lois.
Sofer will appear in her first episodes next month, according to People.
Her last appearance in the daytime soap was September 1997, two years after winning a Daytime Emmy for the role. Sofer played Quinn Fuller on The Bold and the Beautiful from 2013-22.
