Carly’s care at Ferncliff has been transferred to a new physician, Doctor Lazarus, and he has terrible things planned for her on GENERAL HOSPITAL! Of course, he spells his name Dr. Lasiris, but it still sounds the same and gives him a very sinister air. And in this case, it doesn’t seem like he’s going to be bringing anyone back to life. The man playing the good — well, not-so-good — doctor may look familiar to viewers as well. Actor Casey Biggs has appeared in numerous roles in film and television.
Biggs’ biggest role was playing the role of Damar on STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE in the late '90s, however as a member of the Cardassian alien race, he’s not particularly recognizable under all those layers of special effects makeup! Dr. Lasiris isn’t his first foray into daytime, either. Biggs played Fenno Moore on RYAN’S HOPE back in 1989, and even appeared on GH previously as Chad Wainwright in 1990. He has also worked on primetime series like ER, THE X-FILES, and CROSSING JORDAN. His most recent role was playing the district attorney on the ABC series FOR THE PEOPLE in May.
On the big screen, Biggs can be seen in films like The Pelican Brief, Broken Arrow, Dragonfly, and the STAR TREK documentary Trekkies 2. His other Trek connection is that in the mid-‘80s he was married to Roxann Dawson, who played B’Elanna Torres on STAR TREK: VOYAGER. However, they split long before either of them were cast on their respective STAR TREK series.
At this time, there’s no word on how many episodes of GH Biggs will be appearing in, but given Dr. Lasiris’ sinister reputation, his stint will likely be relatively brief. Unless, of course, someone else lands themselves in Ferncliff after Carly and he has a new patient to torture! You’ll just have to stay tuned to find out, and for more GH news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
