(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Elmarie Wendel joins the cast of “General Hospital” in the recurring role of Peg.
While Jax (Ingo Rademacher) puts private investigators on the search for Michael (Dylan Cash) in order to ease Carly’s (Laura Wright) pain over the disappearance of her son, Michael finds himself taking refuge in a cabin, where he encounters a craggy old woman [Peg] beginning Thursday, February 28.
Peg meets Michael as a result of his shooting Kate Howard (Megan Ward) with an illegal weapon on the February 18 episode of the ABC drama series. The soap aired a public service announcement about the dangers of gun violence at the conclusion of said episode.
Wendel is best known to viewers as Mrs. Mamie Dubcek on NBC’s “3rd Rock From the Sun” from 1996-2001. She has also appeared on NBC’s “Seinfeld,” ABC’s “NYPD Blue” and “George Lopez.”
