A familiar face is making her way back to Port Charles this summer!
It has been confirmed that actress Rebecca Budig, who fans will remember played Hayden Barnes, is returning to General Hospital in the coming months.
Budig was last seen on the popular soap opera in 2017 after her character ran out on Michael Easton’s Finn at the altar but was later seen writing an apology letter while clearly pregnant.
ABC executive Nathan Varni certainly teased the possibility of Budig’s return now that Finn has found happiness in a new relationship with Anna earlier this year on Blog Talk Radio’s Daytime After Dark.
“I think it’s definitely a possibility,” he said. “As you know, we left Hayden telling Finn she lost the baby, but the reality of the situation was that she did not lose the baby. So I think with that cliffhanger, there’s definitely room to perhaps one day play that again. Obviously no guarantees, but I think the writers did a good job of kind of tying that story up and leaving a lot to be desired, and that could be a potential obstacle down the road for Finn and kind of a big surprise. So we’ll have to see. But I think it’ll be a while, as we’re not quite yet to that point where we’re ready to return Hayden to the canvas.”
It is unclear how long Budig will be staying around Port Charles however as the actress also has a role in the upcoming Bad Boys television series spinoff L.A.’s Finest starring Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union.
