Get a first look at Caitlin Reilly paying tribute to her late father John on General Hospital
John Reilly, a veteran of the ABC daytime drama, died earlier this year at 84.
This one's for you, Dad.
Reilly will take over the role of Annie, the daughter of Sean Donely, who was played by her father from 1984 to 2013. Here's the logline for the tribute episode: "While mourning the death of W.S.B. (World Security Bureau) agent Sean Donely, fan-favorites Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner), Malcolm "Mac" Scorpio (John J. York), Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and Laura Collins (Genie Francis) are pulled into a mystery involving Sean's daughter, Annie (Caitlin Reilly)."
"John Reilly was an incredible actor and a large part of the 58-plus-year legacy that is GH," executive producer Frank Valentini previously said in a statement. "This episode is meant to honor him and his contribution to the show's rich history. With so many fan favorites returning, new and longtime viewers will enjoy it. We had a lot of fun filming and I am grateful that we were also able to include his daughter. Viewers will hopefully also enjoy one more surprise return — it is just too amazing to spoil."
John Reilly died in January, at 84.
Caitlin Reilly is an actress, writer, and TikTok personality whose credits include Die! Sitter! Die! Rupert and Downstairs. Her father costarred on As the World Turns and Passions before joining General Hospital.
