I came back as a ghost a few years ago and it’s always so surreal to be back. This was my family for four years so it’s always emotional to see everyone. It was definitely different this time. Everyone has to wear masks, and I couldn’t hug anyone. That was hard!!

In particular, she was thrilled to see some former scene partners. She explained:

I was super excited I got to see Steve [Burton; Jason] and Maurice [Benard; Sonny]. I can’t believe how long it’s been. It’s so nice to be able to catch up after all these years.

However, by starring on The Bay, Willis remained in touch with her soap roots. She added:

Being in The Bay has allowed me to reconnect with a lot of people I worked with in the past. Not only from General Hospital but from Another World [ex-Alli Fowler] as well. So amazing to take a trip down memory lane with my costars.
