There's a new woman (sort of) in Port Charles.

Cynthia Watros, who played Libby on Lost, will make her debut on General Hospital as Nina Reeves later this month, and only ET has the exclusive first look at Watros in character.

Watros, who replaces longtime soap vet Michelle Stafford in the role, will first appear in the June 17 episode.

In the first official photos, Nina, editor of Crimson magazine, offers to help cover the costs of Jordan’s (Briana Henry) mounting medical bills, but Curtis (Donnell Turner) politely declines her offer.

In early May, Stafford and Watros both posted a photo together on the General Hospital set.

"Just 2 actors talkin about acting today," Stafford wrote on Twitter, along with the hashtag "#Nina."

Stafford originated the role of Nina on General Hospital in 2014. News of Stafford's departure surfaced in April. She vacates the part to return to The Young and the Restless as Phyllis Sommers, the role she played for 16 years.

General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC (check your local listings).
