It’s been almost a year since the character of Valerie Spencer made her first appearance on ABC’s General Hospital.
Actress Brytni Sarpy debuted in March, 2015 as the long-lost niece of Luke Spencer, daughter of his never before mentioned older sister, Patricia played by veteran television and film actress Dee Wallace.
Almost overnight, the character of Valerie became an immediate fan favorite. There were viewers supporting a pairing of Valerie and cousin Lulu’s estranged husband Dante.
Brytni Sarpy has proven she has the acting chops to play in scenes against powerhouse pros like Geary.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Sarpy last August. I found her to be thoughtful, charming and with a clear direction on her character. She was honest in her view that Valerie was a young woman who was getting her bearings in a new town and with a new family. It had always been just she and her mother but now her life had changed. Valerie had made mistakes but she was still a person with values.
With Sarpy’s year anniversary fast approaching, the character of Valerie’s storyline has expanded with her now as a Port Charles Police Cadet and making new connections.
I look forward to the new and exciting stage of this character’s life.
