General Hospital’s Rebecca Budig has returned to the show as Hayden Barnes, the contract role which she started playing on March 20th 2015. The actress had confirmed her return on her official Twitter account, typing the following message for her fans:- Finally! I can now say I’m so excited to be
@GeneralHospital !! Thank you all for your support!.” Her character was written out after she slipped into a coma, thanks to bad boy Nikolas Cassadine’s,(Tyler Christopher) orders. She has been in coma since May ever since she was shot in the head. Now that she’s all set to wake up from her two months coma, will she finally reveal the truth about Jake Doe’s identity, that he’s Jason Morgan (Billy Miller) and not Jake, and that her ex lover Nikolas has hired someone to kill her in order to keep her quiet from revealing the truth.
The General Hospital actress was asked to come back by the producer of the show, Mr Frank Valentini. She was surprised upon receiving his phone call, because she thought she was done with her job, and wasn’t expecting for her character to ever come out of coma, but thanks to the producer of the show for making that possible by inviting her back. She was happy that she turned out to be wrong, as is very thrilled for returning to the show, to work with her friends on set. Now that the actress is back on contract, a lot of things will change in Port Charles. Will Nikolas try to kill her again, or will he mend his ways and leave her alone?
The 42 year old has not been seen on the show ever since her character slipped into a coma, with Doctor Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) treating her and her being stable, it comes as no surprise that she will finally wake up. Budig is married to executive producer Michael Benson since 2012, and together they have one child, a daughter called, Charlotte Jo Benson who was born last year on September 8, 2014.
