Rebecca Budig Returns To General Hospital

Phoo:A BC

Look who’s headed back to Port Charles?  And, as your favorite daytime dramas have announced already this month major returns, here comes a major one for GH fans.

Fan favorite Rebecca Budig will be returning this summer to General Hospital when she reprises her role as  Hayden,

According to EW.com, who broke the news as to what brings Hayden back to the canvas they could only say, “The brass is staying mum about Hayden’s much-anticipated return, though it seems kind of obvious that she’s ready to introduce her baby to its father!”

As GH viewers know, we last saw Hayden back in September 2017, when she was writing an apology letter to Finn for leaving him at the altar. At the time, Hayden was pregnant, but let Finn (Michael Easton) believe the baby had been lost.

Budig became soap-famous for her role as Greenlee on the defunct All My Children before coming to GH in 2015.  Rebecca is also set to appear in the Bad Boys spin-off, L.A. Finest on Spectrum’s On-Demand platform beginning on May 13th.

So, excited to know Rebecca is reprising her role as Hayden? What will it mean for the love story of Finn and Anna (Finola Hughes)? Comment below

hi Jeffrie..
I can only hope she will bring Finns baby with her, but not going to happen..

I like Finn with Hayden, they are age appropriate and good together..
Anna and Finn; Anna is a Grandma of a teenager and way too old for Finn..

Hey there, Su! I agree with you (again!). I’m betting that you agree with me that Robert Scorpio’s scenes with Anna are dynamic and charged with energy–sexual and otherwise. The writers should pair them up again! And Tristan Rogers (Robert) is filled with humor and just plain entertaining. He’s a great actor, and he knows his character and Anna’s inside out. The TPTB should give him a CONTRACT already! (And did you see how Genie Francis sparkled in the scene where he asked he to go with him to the Nurses’ Ball?) Scintillating! (Genie and Tristan worked together years ago.… Read more »

Hi Nancy… yeah, gotta love it ^^^ “…Can’t beat those pros–and can’t help but enjoy immensely their improvisational style ” I was so taken with this meet up @ Kelly. especially just seeing them both smile and LIGHT UP . I was like WOAH … she should show up … keeping it wink wink innocent. as an escort.. while the game on plan w/Kevin AND Ava is in “full swing”. I am going along with this story.. BECAUSE it’s “ALL” their is : AND it’s pretty much all the rest of the cast outside of the dullard troupe. God –… Read more »

O. My. God!!! YES YES YES!!! This is awesome news!!! She never should have been off the show and i was not too happy when she was written off. She still had lots of story to be told and I am so happy someone realized that. The soap gods have made this viewer very happy today!!!

I’m glad Hayden is coming back…hopefully for Finn. Much as I like Anna, she and Finn just don’t click!

But Anna and Robert Scorpio DO–and they did years ago; chemistry is still there in their easy bantering and humor. Now that’s a dynamic duo! Could watch them the whole hour!

omg I’ve been waiting for this one forever, I’m so glad she’s coming back, especially since she’s liz sister, I simply love Rebecca Budig, Hayden has so much storyline potential all over the canvas, not just w/ Finn, as for her character putting a dent into Anna and Finn, well I don’t know love Anna a bunch so I’m not rutting for Hayden here, but its going to be fun seeing this play out for sure.

It’s about time!!!!! My thoughts, too! ha ha ha. She’s brilliant. Finn worked better with Hayden. Time to also let go of some characters that aren’t serving the show: Dawn of Day peeps, and couldn’t Lulu have been gone to Paris longer…? Wish they would have recasted her years ago. Anyhow, I think Lulu has lost so much story without Dante and either they recast her (which TPTB won’t do)…or just put her in a coma until Dante comes back – for a few years. She has no purpose and Laura could co-raise Charlotte with Valentine (drama!!!) – and bring… Read more »

Oh good! Wish they’d send Anna on a long trip. I will scream if I hear her mention that Dr. Cabot, or whatever his name is one more time.I never thought I would find Anna so boring, and poor Finn having to put up with her craziness.

I hope this creates some real story for Anna and Finn. This stupid twin induced memory story is so poorly written that I no longer care what was or was not implanted. We know all of Jason’s memories were implanted in Drew, one un-known memory is repeatedly presented for Anna and Alex, but nothing for Kevin and Ryan. Anna’s the only one who cares. And Fiona is worthy of something so much more substantial. Let’s have the twins converge on this subject as soon as Oscar is buried and have Dr. Maddox help them sort through this once and for… Read more »

“thank you” all I want to hear… watching him “banter” w/Robert is ad nauseum… which just proves Micheal Easton is so out of his league with these two. Robert and Anna. Finola prefers her character single… so after ALL these years… after the best their was : Duke AND Robert… to see her falling all over herself…. mind numbing jiggle jiggle Britney Spears part 2. what is it about Michael Easton that he cannot make inroads with any one of the cast ???? same can be said for Roger Howarth… Peter does no better… Michael is dead on arrival. this… Read more »

so you don’t like roger, whom i love watching, or michael easton, whom i also love watching. both were on on life to live, but michael was also on gh spinoff Port Charles. whats your feeling for Jackie Zeman and Lisa Locicero? they were both on one life to live before GH. many actors have been on different soaps. frankly im glad we still have soaps where they can be on and welcome any of them, no matter what they were on before.

thank you. Robert can only be on and off due to Tristan ‘s two soaps he’s on. They killed off Duke (more than once). Valentin isnt a good match… i like her with the good doctor and considering she has her ailment, nice to have another doctor in the family. i think finn and robin working together would be good if they could get Kimberly back

Maybe they are bringing her back to take half the cast and FV out and off the show! ABC really working hard to get this show off the air I saw thirty minutes of it yesterday and could not understand what anyone was doing ? CBS let MY almost destroy Y&R before they stepped in but how much better it is going to get will see but the working so hard to make characters work on this show that have no history is killing it . I just found out they did kill that kid off Oscar but who cares?… Read more »

Hi Kay : this is neither here nor their I appreciate candor honesty and celebration of this site AND the 4 remaining soaps. after all… the 4 soaps have shared for decade , how, had it not been for the fan… this genre would not be ??? it’s funny to me because I see this “blog” as giving “FAN” a voice a mindset of our own to enliven this industry.

There are three baby reveals to come… Wiley not Willow’s child, Finn’s child – not dead, and Peter, whom I’d swear is ROBERT and Anna’s child. Alex played both of them by robbing them both of their son by planting her horrid memory of sex with Faison and probably took delight in knowing Anna gave the child away. Alex is a rat of a sister, and human being for that matter.

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

correct me: what is up w/Robert AND the ring ? on one hand he seems very supporting – OF – Finn AND Anna belong. Yet I think there is something going on? that has yet to be revealed? I was “livid” at Finn for barking out @ROBERT and Anna… “alright, THAT’s enough” when Robert came visiting “excited” that he thinks he has way of tracking down Alex.. ie: her ex-husband Dimitri. AND Anna shut him down… etc… etc… AND I am “livid” that , what? if Anna is so accepting that she know that Peter IS NOT HER SON… and… Read more »

Christy
Guest

its just that soaps usually make a character really hate something they end up with. robert protests soooooo much about Peter (“Henrich” as he continually calls him), making remarks about Peters terrible father… so in soap fashion im guessing Robert is Peter’s father. i love michael easton and finola so i welcome their pairing… gives robert something to cause trouble with too. but i also like robert and finn scenes too. there had been speculation that because nina gives willow so much trouble that she’s probably willows mom… then they revealed that the dod gal was her mom… but the… Read more »

Absolutely—I nevere bought Hayden’s dead baby story….the door for her return was left open at the mention of a baby. It’s typical fare for soaps. I like the way you think–Faison may have been well-aware Peter was not his son—–another wicked game. I just don’t remember Alex being a villainess on AMC. I guess I was too young? As far as Wiley—trepidation!! I fear that if Shiloh gets wind of the fact that the baby is his, all hell will break loose. I hope the truth comes out soon ( that Wiley is Michael’s). I am never comfortable when the… Read more »

If you look up Anna Devane on Wikipedia look for the 2001-2003 storyline for her time in Pine Valley and Alex is in there too.. Interesting that William DeVry was on AMC then too. Also mentioned some guy with an amnesia drug and that Anna woke up in the hospital with no memory of her life in Port Charles… Hmmm that could be when GH could say her memory was tampered with.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Thank you, Christy,
I remember when Anna was in PV….loved her…I remember Alex and her son Aiden—I wish the PTB would bring him to PC.
I must have been fourteen /fifteen at the time. Now I’m getting nostalgic—-youth is becoming more and more elusive…sigh!!

Violet Lemm

I have read somewhere that Peter will turn out to be Robert’s son, which ie ironic, since Robert can’t stand him. Maybe he can compare notes with Nina when she finds out that Willow whom she doesn’t like, turns out to be her real daughter.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Thank you, soap-gods!! Fingers crossed…..here’s hoping Hayden’s sojourn lasts forever…..
And, end this farce between Anna and Finn—-most mismatched/boring couple on TV. Anna has lost her charm.

Marianne

So very true. I have never seen a more forced pairing!

Celia
Guest

Right, Marianne?…..I groan each time I see them together. Anna has fallen from grace for me since TPTB decided to stick her with Finn. ….Her schoolgirl chatter and jejune behavior drag her down to the level of an airhead.

KatherineBennett

Not a fan of Hayden hope they keep Anna and Finn together. They are good together . Hope the story stays that way.

Christy
Guest

My thoughts too. Hayden isn’t trustworthy, not to Finn, nor Nicholas, nor Drew for that matter.

Violet Lemm
Guest
Violet Lemm

She may not be trustworthy, but at least she and Finn have some chemistry together. I like Anna and Finn separately, but not together. They only bring out the worst in each other, which is not what their pairing is meant to do. Anyone who thinks they are good together has got to be watching a different show.

Hayden’s back and the cast of GH just keeps getting better. Maybe next year GH will sweep ALL of the Best Actress nominations.
