Soap Opera Chaos as Scientologist Actress Michelle Stafford Exits "General Hospital" As Show Does Cult Storyline - 2019-03-31
Now "General Hospital" actress Michelle Stafford is leaving that show and returning to "The Young and the Restless" after a not so successful stint on the former show. She was on the latter for 16 years.
Stafford is an avowed member of the Cult of Scientology, which "General Hospital" knew when she joined them. (She isn't the only "Y&R" actress deep in Scientology. So is Sharon Case, who's been on the show for eons.)
But here's the soapy twist: a few months ago, "General Hospital" started a story about a cult called Dawn of Day. (Dawn of Day, not coincidentally, is a is an 1881 book by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche that would drive Scientology creator L. Ron Hubbard crazy.)
