Finola Hughes and Rick Springfield by Adam Larkey/ABC
This Friday on General Hospital, Rick Springfield - for the first time in his two stints with the ABC sudser - will sing on screen, as doc Noah Drake tries to pass himself off as rocker doppelgänger Eli Love. The concert caps a storyline in which Noah and former superspy Anna Devane have grown rather... chummy, yet fans hungry for anything more will have to bide their time. "I really enjoyed working with Rick. He's a lot of fun, a nice, relaxed chilled guy," Finola Hughes, whose latest run as Anna wraps with the concert, tells "But we still have a lot of episodes of How Do I Look? [the Style Network show Hughes hosts] to do before the end of the year, and I'm still making jewelry for QVC, which takes up a great deal of my time."

Interestingly, it was Hughes' and Springfield's respectively busy calendars that threw them together for this short-term tale. "I feel that's why it works so well with Rick and I, because he's flying around in and out of town," says the Brit beauty.

Could Anna resurface on a possible second round of SOAPnet's GH: Night Shift, which this week wraps production on its 13-episode freshman foray? "That would be nice, sure!" says Hughes, noting that she previously was approached about swinging by the spin-off. "We'll have to see if that works into the schedule. But I think it's an amazing show. I've been watching it, and it's great."
