Of all the new characters introduced to GENERAL HOSPITAL recently, the mysterious Daisy is the one that has fans buzzing. Already suspicious of the young woman who shared a copy of the book Every Day Is a New Dawn with Kristina, the revelation that Daisy works at Turning Woods care facility has the theories flying fast and furious! “I read a lot of fan responses on Twitter, and there are tons of rumors,” Daisy’s portrayer, Kelsey Wang, confided to Soaps In Depth. “Am I Kristina’s new love interest? Oscar's new love interest? Am I in a cult? It’s just so much fun to keep people guessing!”
One thing the actress knows for sure about her daytime alter ego is that she’s not part of a coven. GH has done some pretty far-out plotlines over the years, but this isn’t one of them. “I don’t think Daisy has special powers,” Wang smiled. “I’m not playing a witch.” And despite her healing touch with Oscar’s headaches, Daisy isn’t some kind of miracle worker, either. “I don’t think Daisy’s healing Oscar’s brain tumor,” she added. “People get stress migraines all the time, and breathing and just calming down the body can really help. I think Daisy’s doing that, with a little bit of Reiki.”
However, while many viewers are convinced that Daisy and her friends are a suspicious group, Wang insisted that her character’s motivations are pure. “Daisy’s found her purpose in helping others and volunteering,” she explained, “and she kind of sees herself — or her past self — in Kristina, who is lost. She truly believes she can help Kristina find her way. She wants to hang out with this girl and just get to know her… and if she can help her, that would be even better. And in Oscar, again, Daisy saw someone who needed help and helped him. She and her friends all have the same mission and spirits, so they’re living together.”
But what about the fact that Daisy was spotted working at Turning Woods and seems to be somehow connected to the obituary that Sam received in the mail? Wang isn’t going to spoil the upcoming twists and turns, but promised “viewers will definitely be surprised” by what’s coming up next!
