Fans of General Hospital's Rebecca Budig are over the moon to know that she'll soon be back in Port Charles as Hayden Barnes, and the actress is equally thrilled that she's reprising the character she played from 2015 to 2017.
"It was a very nice feeling and very flattering to know that they could see the potential story for Hayden and Finn (Michael Easton)," Budig tells Soap Opera Digest of receiving the summons from GH earlier this year. "I think there is a lot left untold there."
As Soap Central previously reported, Budig will be back on-screen this summer, and Hayden is ready to reveal that she secretly had Finn's baby. However, the rest of the details remain a mystery -- to both viewers and Budig.
"I am curious about how they are going to bring Hayden back and who I'll be working with," the actress shares. "It should be fun!"
One of those people is likely to be Finola Hughes, who played her GH character Anna on All My Children at the same time Budig played AMC's Greenlee Smythe. Finn has moved on romantically with Anna, and Hayden's return just may spell the beginning of a love triangle between the three powerhouse actors.
