The week of May 13, 2019
Rebecca Budig is heading back to the fold as Finn’s (Michael Easton) former fiancé, Hayden Barnes. Budig was written off the soap in September of 2017 when her character left Finn at the altar and penned him a goodbye note claiming that she’d miscarried their child, although she clearly had not. Budig is slated to make her debut sometime this summer.
Chandra Wilson’s latest GH character has been given a name: Sydney Val Jean. She’ll be appearing at the soap’s annual Nurses’ Ball. The Grey’s Anatomy star has appeared on GH twice before. Last August, she played therapist Francine Massey. Back in 2014, she played a patient of Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom).
