Digest has learned that soap vet Robin Mattson (ex-Janet, AMC et al) is heading back to Port Charles. The actress, who played the memorable role of Heather Webber from 1980-82 will return in late March/early April. Look for her arrival to impact Steven (Scott Reeves): After all, she's his mom who sold him on the black market as a baby.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

According to www.tvguide.com, Joanna Johnson is returning to B&B on March 27 as Karen — and this time, she has a surprise: a young daughter! The teen is played by Linsey Godfrey, who has guest-starred on many prime-time series, including NCIS, ONE TREE HILL and WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE. Johnson was last seen in July, 2011 for Katie and Bill's vow renewal.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The cuts continue at B&B, with Jack Wagner (Nick), who began on the show in 2003, joining the recently bumped Lesley-Anne Down (Jackie), Brandon Beemer (Owen) and Zack Conroy (Oliver). On www.wagnerworld.com the moderators posted, "We have just learned that Jack Wagner's option on his two year contract has not been picked up with The Bold and the Beautiful. We do not know if he will be leaving the show or staying on recurring basis, but with his lack of storyline in recent years, we highly doubt we will be seeing much more of Nick Marone. With Leslie-Anne Down's contract also not renewed and Brandon Beemer's move to recurring, it looks like the ship has sailed on the Morone clan." Could Wagner, who played GH's Frisco on and off from 1983-91, and again in 1995, return to his old stomping grounds now that Finola Hughes and Tristan Rogers (Anna and Robert) are back? This news comes hot on the heels of Wagner's very public and nasty split with Heather Locklear (ex-Amanda, MELROSE PLACE).

Here's an idea.... if Jack Wagner needs something to do, why not go back to GH and bring back Frisco?
