Carolyn Hennesy Returning to General Hospital



General Hospital fan favorite Carolyn Hennesy will be reprising her role as the delicious, scene-stealing Diane Miller. Hennesy tweeted the news to fans.  While I’m ecstatic Hennesy is returning as Diane, I’m still upset that her fantastic True Blood vampire Rosalyn Harris was killed off this summer.

Hennesy also shared her thoughts on the passing of her co-star John Ingle.  Read it after the jump!

I hope she's on contract, but even if she's recurring, I'll take what I can get... Innocent

Carolyn Hennesy was terribly missed. I was starting to think that Frank Valentini maybe done with the character and that Diane wouldn't be appearing on the show anymore. It's great to have her back. I'm always excited to see Diane in Port Charles.

Hennesy on contract!? Would be awesome but I doubt that it would ever happen. She has way too much to do outside GH to sign a contract with the show. I just hope that we are going to see her more often. Especially after her time on "True Blood" came to an end.

She is one of those great character actresses that dominates the screen when she is only supposed to be supporting. From her spot on character on COUGARTOWN that made me want her on MORE OFTEN than not to her role as DIANE on General Hospital, she was a scene stealer.

On TRUE BLOOD, she was a mix of so many great personalities that I wish she moved into the position that was left vacant by JESSICA TUCK on that show and entered into episodes strong and left each STRONGER!

With her return to GH, let's hope it's not as a supporting character. Let's hope that Cartini has opted to make her front and center! What a great tryst it would be for Alexis and Diane to have a lesbian affair! HOT!!

Carolyn has incredible chemistry with EVERYONE.

Plus, you just know Ron knows to write for her, too.

P.S. - Has Diane met Todd, yet?? That should be FUN.

Todd fired Diane over the telephone, so I am looking forward to a little face time between the two!

I was thinking, it may be great for GH fans to have her back, but hopefully she won't come back wearing that sweater. LOL Just because you can wear certain items of clothing doesn't mean you should.

The first time I saw Diane I was watching the clip where she breaks up the Sam/Carly catfight by pounding the binder and announcing in her inimitable way, "The POLICE are ON their WAY!" The girls straightened up faster than you could snap your fingers and I was instantly fascinated. Really happy she's coming back.

HERE IS THE THREE STRONG CHARACTERS THAT AMAZED AND EMPOWERED WOMEN. KATE, ALEXIS, AND DIANE. NONE OF YOU CAN NOT SAY THAT THIS RIGHT HERE WAS NOT GOOD TIMES. THEY HAD MEGAN PORTRAYING KATE AS A STRONG BUSINESS MINDED WOMAN, ALEXIS AND DIANE AS WELL TWO EDUCATED STRONG WOMEN. THIS IS WHAT I WANT BACK. THE LAST TIME KELLY SULLIVAN SHARED THE SCREEN WITH ALEXIS IT WAS AS THOUGH THEY SHARED NO HISTORY? AND I FIND IT ODD THAT DIANE WAS TREATED AS A NUSANCE TO KELLY SULLIVAN. I HOPE THAT BITCH KEEPS PLAYING CONNIE, SHE IS NOT FASHIONISTA. TO HELL WITH ALL YOU MEGAN WARD KATE HOWARD HATERS.

I like the character of Diane and her friendship with Alexis, but I really don't care much for the actress after seeing her be so rude to people on twitter.

gross on those boobs and the multi colored chest!!! like alexis/nancy she's in need of someone to tell her the honest truth that those things need to be covered up especially and always in public. it is so unneeded to get attention. i'm volunteering.

YAAAAAAY! I am SO happy to hear Diane will be seen in Port Charles again. Carolyn is fabulous and General Hospital will be brighter having her around. Looking forward to that first face to face meeting with Todd also! And I agree with Gord...can she wear more clothes like this on the show??? Laughing out loud

She has what us Farmers call a Farmers TAN. Farmers wear a cap that shade their foreheads and so have a white forehead and rest of face is tanned, kind of like BOOBS LARUE.

I'm obviously in the minority here, but I am not thrilled about this return. My first thought was that we'll start seeing more Sonny and more courtroom scenes ... blah!

Bring back characters who have a connection to core characters ... like where the hell have Liz's parents been all these freaking years while their daughter is going through a living hell??? That's who I would like to see.

Yuck why she isn't needed nor was she missed.

Why do people like this woman? She bullies fans on twitter. It'd be nice if someone called her out on that instead propping her up
