Happy Birthday Genie Francis 'Laura Spencer'
Genie was born on May 26, 1962 in Englewood, New Jersey to actors Ivor Francis and Rosemary Daley. She grew up in Long Island, New York and California. She has an older brother, Ivor Francis, and a younger brother, Kenneth Francis, and a half-sister, Shelley Francis.
Genie got her start in television on General Hospital, as a teenager (following a guest appearance on ABC's prime-time series, Family) and literally grew up in the enormously popular role of "Laura".
Genie's extensive television work also included recurring appearances on Murder, She Wrote. She starred in the prime-time series, "Bare Essence," and the television miniseries, "North and South," both with actor Jonathan Frakes, who went on to become her husband.
In 1988, Genie married Jonathan Frakes, who starred in the popular syndicated television series, Star Trek: The Next Generation. They maintain residences in both Los Angeles and Manhattan. Their first child, Jameson Ivor Frakes, was born on August 20, 1994. Their second child, Elizabeth Francis, was born on May 30, 1997.
Genie has been with "General Hospital" on-and-off over the years, winning the much-coveted Emmy award as Best Supporting Actress for her role as "Laura" in 2007.
