General Hospital: Leslie Charleson

General Hospital (GH) spoilers and updates tease that Leslie Charleson had some exciting experience back when she was still new as Monica Quartermaine on the daytime drama. The actress opened up about it during the latest episode of Maurice Benard’s State of Mind.

Charleson will soon celebrate her 45th anniversary at General Hospital as Monica Quartermain. She’s become a staple on the soap. But believe it or not, she wasn’t always liked by many.

The actress’ first day on set was August 16, 1977. That was also the time Elvis Presley died, which Charleson remembers very clearly.

“I remember that more because Elvis Presley died. Man, you’re talking to the biggest fan. His serial number when he was in the army was US 53310761. Oh yeah. I grew up with him,” the actress said.
