Producers from Huffington Post Live invited me to be a guest on their segment with Carolyn Hennesy. Ms. Hennesy is probably one of the hardest working actresses in the business. She juggles multiple television roles and television spots across various networks. You may recognize her from General Hospital, True Blood, Cougar Town, or countless other shows.
My personal favorite is that of Diane Miller, lawyer and fashionista on General Hospital. As you all know, I watch General Hospital everyday. As a soap opera fan, we feel as if the characters are members of our family. As the soap characters brand out and go on to do other things, we follow them closely and support them as they go on to do bigger and better things. One cool thing about Carolyn Hennesy is that as many cool things that she does away from General Hospital… she always returns back to Port Charles and her fan to reprise her roll.
