Port Charles’ new district attorney, Margaux Dawson [pronounced Margo], might be a new face to some GENERAL HOSPITAL fans, but viewers of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and ALL MY CHILDREN will definitely recognize Daytime Emmy Award nominee Elizabeth Hendrickson in the newly-created role!
D.A. Dawson is going to be the one trying to put Carly in prison for pushing a pregnant Nelle down the stairs and Diane is worried that she’s going to be going after Carly hard because it’s a way to get back at Sonny, who is called the “Teflon Don” for a reason. He’s pretty much untouchable where the law is concerned, but Carly is a much easier target. Especially since Nelle’s gaslighting scheme basically served Carly to Margaux on a silver platter!
While Hendrickson is a new face on the GH set, she will be familiar to some ABC Daytime fans for her roles as the ill-fated Frankie Stone on ALL MY CHILDREN as well as her twin sister, Maggie. She made her AMC debut in 2001, stepping in as Maggie in 2002 after Frankie’s murder. After leaving in 2005, Hendrickson returned to Pine Valley for a brief stint in 2007.

The actress then made guest-starring roles on primetime series like MEDIUM, COLD CASE, and CSI: MIAMI before returning to daytime with the role of Chloe Mitchell on Y&R in 2008. She exited in 2015, but returned in 2016 for another run.
Now that she’s joined the cast of GH, it will reunite Hendrickson with some old friends like Billy Miller (Drew), who played Billy to her Chloe on Y&R as well as William deVry (Julian), who was on AMC as Michael Cambias during her run as Maggie.
As the district attorney in Port Charles, she’ll have no end of criminals to prosecute, but will Margaux share the screen with Drew or Julian? You’ll have to stay tuned to find out! And for more GH news, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine!
