General Hospital News: Tracy Melchior Throws Her Hat In The Ring For Nina Reeves Role

General Hospital News: Tracy MelchiorTracy Melchior is said to have what it takes to be the new Nina Reeves on “General Hospital.” The soap veteran would like to replace Michelle Stafford, who played the role of Nina since 2014.

Reports said that Stafford and the GH management had a hard time making a deal. The two parties’ negotiations on her new contract reached an impasse and they weren’t able to agree.

Despite her short-lived role as Nina, Stafford is still very grateful for her five-year journey in GH.

“The amazing writers at GH write something and I play it. It’s my job. It’s all to entertain you folks and make you think, sometimes it incites debate. I truly love all of you passionate folks,” Stafford’s Twitter post reads.

The producers of “The Young and the Restless” took a chance and are taking her Stafford back. She will return to Y&R as Phyllis Summers again.

Stafford’s sudden change of circumstances paved the way for the former Veronica Landers of Y&R to vie for the Nina Reeves character.

In an interview with Soap Opera News, Melchior said she was the one who contacted Mark Teschner, the casting director of GH.

“I reached out to Mark Teschner and told him: ‘This role just came to my attention that I might be a good fit for and I wanted to throw my hat in the ring. So, this is me throwing my hat in the ring.’ I asked him to keep me in mind. He said ‘you got it’,” Melchior revealed.

Before speaking to the director, Melchior said that it was Kelly Larson of “Soaps in Depth” who gave her the idea to consider the role for herself.

“Once she planted that seed in my mind, I started thinking. I would love to dig into the character and into some in-depth storylines,” Melchior added.
