When Lydia Look began truly fleshing out the character of Selina Wu on “General Hospital” in the latter half of 2021, she was thrilled that the soap was giving her so much new and meaty material. “I am so excited every time I open my script. I go, ‘They’ve given me these words to say? I am so blessed.’ I have not been disappointed once,” Look told Soap Opera Digest. “They have made me so intelligent, so well-spoken, so smart, so tough … I am so grateful to this writing team for representing me the way I’d like to be represented on-screen: as a smart, tough, Asian woman who holds her own against the men in our world.”
However, all that extra screen time had to be put on hold as 2022 began because Look wasn’t about to cancel a very important annual trip. “The end of the year is when I always go visit my mother in Singapore,” Look told Soap Opera Digest (via Soaps In Depth). So, she asked the powers that be at “GH” to “please wait for me” because, “December/January is always family time … and that comes first.”
When Selina does return to the Port Charles scene, will Brad Cooper finally stand up to his aunt or continue to do her bidding?
