Since she’s no longer on GENERAL HOSPITAL, Chloe Lanier admitted to Soaps In Depth that she was surprised to be nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for her work as Nelle. But given her stellar performances as her GH alter ego went completely off the rails towards the end of her run, she probably shouldn’t have been! “I’m very honored to be nominated again,” Lanier admitted. “And especially to be nominated alongside Hayley [Erin, ex-Kiki], Eden [McCoy, Josslyn], Victoria [Konefal, Ciara, DAYS OF OUR LIVES], and Olivia [Rose Keegan, Claire, DAYS].”
But will the scenes that she submitted convince the Blue Ribbon Panel to award her with another trophy to pair with the Emmy she brought home in the same category last year? “I submitted a quick clip when Carly and Nelle were in the nursery and I’m revealing I’m the one who’s been gaslighting her this whole time,” Lanier revealed. “Then with Chase on the pier, when I was trying to convince him to kill Michael for me. Then a scene with Ava — because a reel is not complete without Maura West. Then the scene where I convinced Brad to take my baby, and then the last one was Chad Duell and I where I’m trying to win Michael back over in the hospital after he’s found out all the bad things I’ve done.”
Win or lose, Lanier is just looking forward to attending the big show and seeing some of her old friends again. “I’m going to be there and my boyfriend’s going to come with me, so it should be a fun night,” she predicted. “I’m more excited to see everyone from GH that I don’t get to see as much anymore. I haven’t been in the game long enough to know everybody on the other shows. I met Olivia briefly last year and she was super duper sweet, so I’d like to say ‘Hi’ to her again. And I was a huge SUMMERLAND fan, so I’m going to be stalking Shawn Christian at every party I go to!”
Make sure you watch the Daytime Emmys on Sunday, May 5, to see if Lanier brings home the gold, and for more on your favorite GH stars — past and present — keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
