Selina Wu[1] is a fictional character from the ABC daytime drama General Hospital. According to IMDB, her original name was Nina Wu, but she was primarily referred to as "Ms. Wu" or "Madame Wu" presumably to avoid confusion with Nina Reeves.[2]

She was played by Lydia Look on August 5, 2015, September 25 & 28, 2015, then again on August 29, 2017, then again on May 4 & 5, 2021, and most recently on August 18, 2021. Look returned again on September 10, 2021. She was next seen on November 8, 2021.[3]

On January 14, 2022, Soaps In Depth revealed that Look will be taking a break from GH.[4] She was last seen on December 15, 2021. Look returned as Selina on March 14, 2022.


Ms. Wu is the leader of the Triad for the Wu family which means she is a relation of Mr. Wu, Kim Wu, Jade Soong Chung, and Brad Cooper.

In August, at a Five Families meeting Sonny Corinthos says there is a traitor in the group. Ms. Wu asks him who he is referring to. Sonny reveals that this happened in Serge’s territory. Serge claimed he got an offer from someone. Sonny wanted to know who this person was. Serge eventually admits they are in the Jerome family. Sonny’s enforcer Jason Morgan is dead, Shawn Butler is in prison, and Duke Lavery is dead. He has no one to protect him. Sonny suddenly shoots Serge. Ms. Wu tells everyone to put their guns down. She explains that Serge violated his alliance and Sonny was within his rights to exact justice as he saw fit. She asks if he has someone else that he wants to call out. He says not now but let this be a warning.

In September, Michael Corinthos took Sonny’s place at a Five Families meeting. Ava shows up for the Jerome family. Michael wants to know who shot Sonny. Ava claims she recently became the head of the Jeromes and had nothing to do with previous attacks. Ms. Wu tells Ava that she is making a serious claim and an attack on one of them is an attack on them all. Ava says it was a well-connected man that they all know. Michael gets tired of Ava’s vague answers and prepares to leave. Ms. Wu asks if Ava is intending to make enemies because that is what she is doing. Ava clarifies that it was Carlos Rivera who shot Sonny while she knows it was really Paul Hornsby.

Michael, Ava, and Ms. Wu

Ms. Wu asks Ava if she is saying that Carlos killed Duke and went after Sonny with no authorization from Julian Jerome. Ava says that is correct. Michael wants Ava to produce Carlos and she said he disappeared when she became head of the Jeromes. Michael wonders why he wouldn’t stick around to be number two. Ava suggests that he is only interested in being number one. Michael asks why Carlos is suddenly interested in being the leader since he has been a low-level gangster so far. Ava says that people change and Michael retorts that people lie. Ms. Wu asks Michael what he is implying. He says it is convenient that Carlos isn’t here.

Ms. Wu and fellow mobster Petrov

Ms. Wu points out that the fight between Sonny and the Jeromes has had a damaging repercussion on all of the group. She seconds a call for an immediate ceasefire. Michael and Ava agree to peace unless there is an attack. Then Michael will assume the Jeromes are behind it.

In August 2017, Sonny calls a Five Families meeting to announce his retirement. Ms. Wu tells him they have heard the rumors and says it is unlikely that a man in his position would step down. Sonny explains that Drew Cain (as “Jason”) has already retired and he would be splitting up the rest of his territories between the remaining families except for except for his legit businesses like Corinthos Coffee.

On May 4, 2021, when another meeting with the Five Families is arranged. Cyrus Renault attends and everyone there, including Selina, refers to him as "Mr. Renault." The meeting is about to begin until Carly Corinthos arrives, presumably in Jason's place (Jason had been shot), saying "not so fast." She takes her seat at the opposite end of the table, across from where Selina is seated THEN gives her permission for the meeting to commence.

On August 17, 2021, Jason arrives at a Five Families meeting. Carly has to pick up Josslyn at Wyndemere so she can’t attend the meeting. Selina was unhappy with Carly's absence and called this unacceptable. Selina also tells Jason she considers Carly a liability and thinks she should be eliminated. Jason views this as a threat and lets her know he will not allow that, that he and Carly are getting married and that they are co-running the organization. Just as Carly arrived at the meeting, it'd already ended as everyone -- except Jason -- were up out of their seats and exiting the room where the meeting was being held, with Vincent telling Carly he'll be looking for his invitation to their wedding in the mail.

On September 17, Ms. Wu warns Jason after the wedding that Mr. Novak and Mr. Buscema are planning something. Jason says he is aware and arranges for Novak and Buscema to be killed by the bomb they planted under Jason and Carly's limo.

On November 8, Sonny meets with Ms. Wu. He offers to give her half of Joey Novak's holdings as thanks for saving Jason and Carly. She asks for him to help her nephew Brad Cooper who has parole soon. Sonny reluctantly agrees to not interfere if Brad gets parole and says he will not retaliate against Brad as long as Brad stays away from Michael and Wiley. Ms. Wu agrees to the terms and says they are now even.

On December 14, Brad is paroled after his hearing despite Michael speaking against him. Ms. Wu (now referred to as Selina) takes Brad to breakfast at the Metro Court with Brad. Selina got Brad a job and has him living with her. He says he has never even met her. Selina says she was respecting his adoptive parents wishes but she has been keeping tabs on him. Michael is mad to see Brad at Carly's restaurant. He threatens Brad and Selina who threatens Michael back.

On April 4, 2022, Selina revealed to Britt Westbourne that she knew her father, Cesar Faison and that he and Britt had committed a crime in 2016 while in Lisbon. Selina blackmailed Britt into letting her manipulate Brad into working for her. Selina wants Brad to manage poker games at The Savoy instead of his preferred job, being an orderly at the hospital. Curtis had turned down Selina's offer and she sent him a money tree.

On April 5, with Deception going public, Selina buys stock to become a major investor. She surprises everyone by showing up at The Savoy celebration, where she continues to attempt to persuade Curtis Ashford to allow poker games for her select friends, to help keep the peace around town.
