Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo is returning to her old role of Brenda Barrett on General Hospital on August 11th. Vanessa won a Daytime Emmy for the role in 2003, and since then she’s been seen on primetime shows including Beverly Hills 90210, and Las Vegas.
In addition to her career, Vanessa is also a mom to son, Kassius, now 8, whose father is actor Brian-Austin Green.
The actress is looking forward to going back to daytime television and taking on the personna of Brenda Barrett once again.
Of her return to the hit soap, Vanessa said that “it’s always kind of been in the works” for her to come back. General Hospital was her first acting gig, and she’s remained friends with the cast members over the years, even attending the high school prom with one of the guys.
She adds that, “It really was the most lovely cast I ever worked with, and I always said I could spend the rest of my life on this show and be content. The people there work really hard and take acting really seriously, in a genre not necessarily known for that.”
There is no doubt that Vanessa will be welcomed with open arms back onto the General Hospital set!
