The Week Of January 7, 2019
Is Rebecca Budig returning to the soap as Hayden Barnes? Finn’s (Michael Easton) recent letter from his ex-fiance and, unbeknownst to him, baby mama, asking him to meet her in Rome, stirred things up with the GH fan base.
According to the actress, she hasn’t heard anything from the show’s brass. However, Budig is open to reappearing on the show. “I would always consider it,” she says.
Meanwhile, it looks like Chris Van Etten will be sticking around Port Charles as Chet Driscoll, now that the character was offered a job to manage Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) boxing gym.
The real-life vet was initially introduced as Amy’s (Risa Dorken) brother in November of 2017. Van Etten’s status with the show is recurring.
Cassandra James pops up as Elizabeth’s (Rebecca Herbst) old friend Dr. Terry Randolph on Monday, January 7. She’ll share scenes with Tamara Braun’s Kim.
