Meet GH’s New Writer!
Following the retirement of Jean Passanante, GH announced that her co-headwriter slot would be filled by Chris Van Etten. “I adore Chris,” said his new writing partner, Shelly Altman. “He’s such a beautiful writer and filled with so many great ideas.” As it turns out, the pair have quite the history, with Van Etten having been an intern during Altman’s stint as headwriter at ONE LIFE TO LIVE. “He has so much heart, and I love his sensibilities,” she continued. “It’ll be fun having him on board!” Before the promotion, Van Etten, who has been working in daytime since 2001, had been serving as one of GH’s breakdown writers.
Van Etten helped craft story for OLTL’s Viki and Jessica.
