Nelle is missing and presumed dead on GENERAL HOSPITAL but portrayer Chloe Lanier is guest-starring as a woman who is missing and definitely not dead in an upcoming episode of NCIS: HAWAI’I! If you’re missing seeing the actress in Port Charles, you can check out her newest role in the episode premiering on Monday, Nov. 1, at 10 p.m. ET on CBS!
In the episode titled “The Tourist,” Lanier plays Kayla Barlow, a globe-trotting social media influencer who disappears and is thought to be kidnapped. However, as Vanessa Lachey’s Agent Jane Tennant and the rest of the NCIS team investigate, they quickly discover that the missing woman is not who her husband or internet followers think she is!
Lanier made quite the impression on GH fans when she debuted as a young Pat Spencer in a special flashback anniversary episode of the soap that aired on April 1, 2015. So much so that the talented young actress was brought back in August 2016 to play the scheming Nelle Hayes… whose last name was eventually revealed to be Benson as she was Carly’s long-lost sister!
Over the years, Lanier’s performances earned her three nominations for Outstanding Younger Actress and she took home the trophy in 2018. But sadly, Nelle’s scheming caught up to her and she fell from a cliff to her (presumed) death in 2021.
Fans of the actress are still hoping that reports of Nelle’s death have been greatly exaggerated and Lanier will once again return to daytime to reprise her role. But until then, they’ll just have to enjoy watching her deliver amazing performances elsewhere. Check out a preview for Lanier’s episode of NCIS: HAWAI’I below and be sure to tune in!
