Whitney Russell Harris-Crane, is that really you?
Brook Kerr, who played the aforementioned character on NBC’s old sudser Enthusiasms, is returning to daytime dramas in March, EW can exclusively reveal. She’ll join General Health Center as a new physician, and EW has the first appearance!
Not much else is learnt about Kerr’s character, who will appear in Port Charles on March 5. However daytime fans– specifically those who enjoyed Enthusiasms— need to remember Kerr’s representation as Whitney, the daughter of Eve and T.C. Russell. The Russells were one of the core households in the fictitious town of Harmony on Enthusiasms, which aired on NBC from 1999-2007 and after that on DirecTV from 2007-08 Kerr’s character was memorable since of her relationship with Chad (played by Donn Swaby and Charles Divins), whom everyone initially thought was her half-brother. Whitney even became a nun to absolve herself of the pity! But alas, she and Chad were not blood relatives so they ended up getting hitched.
Kerr left Passions in 2007 under the guise that her character relocated to New Orleans. Her latest functions include stints on Hawaii Five-0 and Westworld, along with The Grinder, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Real Blood
