Super popular soap princess Rebecca Budig was let go from General Hospital, after actually managing to make the problematic character of Hayden Barnes work. I think Budig would be a great addition to NBC's Days of Our Lives as a recast Princess Greta Von Amberg!
Virginal Greta, originally played by Julianne Morris, left Salem U.S.A without revealing the identity of her biological father. Both international man of mystery John Black (Drake Hogestyn) and his arch nemesis Stefano DiMera (the late Joe Mascolo) bedded Greta's bat poop crazy, Hope Brady-lookalike mama Princess Gina (Kristian Alfonso).
Sure, Greta said John wasn't the daddy, but what if she was lying to keep from complicating John's life? Or, maybe she could be Stefano's latest bastard child, hellbent on claiming her birthright from half-brothers Andre (Thaao Penghlis) and Chad (Billy Flynn)? I can't think of a better writer than Ron Carlivati to revisit Greta's twisted paternity puzzle!
I bet Budig would sizzle opposite Greta's old flame Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan). Or maybe toy boy cop JJ Deveraux (Casey Moss) is more to her liking? She did have an unrequited crush on JJ's Pops Jack Deveraux (Matthew Ashford)! Can't you just see Jennifer Rose (Melissa Reeves) clutching Grandma Horton's donut recipe to her pearl-adorned chest as she learns JJ is exploring Greta's crown jewels?
Would you like to see Budig's GPS take her straight to Salem U.S.A? Sound off in the comments!
