Vanessa Marcil Returns, Brenda Barrett Headed to Port Charles

Vanessa Marcil has played the unforgettable role of Brenda Barrett on and off on General Hospital for many years. Vanessa originated the role in 1992, and later left the role for 4 years, to return again in short term appearances.

Brenda Barrett and mobster Sonny Corinthos had an epic love affair that fans still swoon over to this day. Brenda has also been in love with another high powered Port Charles businessman, Jasper Jacks. Sonny and Jacks have been at odds for years as they were both in love with the beautiful Brenda.

Recently, Vanessa spoke with Soaps in Depth regarding the possible return of her character, Brenda. General Hospital spoilers reveal that the actress has been talking to sources at SID about a possible return to GH. Marcil said, “There’s always conversations. I’m a big fan of surprises, there won’t be an announcement before you see me on air. Like how they brought me back during the 2013 Nurses Ball, I was on set before people found out.”

Vanessa may be returning to the canvas, but it is uncertain whether she would be a long term player. She is currently working on other projects, including opening a restaurant.

No confirmations of her return have been made, and Executive Producer, Frank Valentini has not commented on either side of this news.

Now that Carly and Sonny seem to be in a happy place together once again, do you think it’s time for Brenda to waltz in and make a mess of things for Carly? Let us know what you think? Are you excited at the possibility of having Brenda Barrett back in Port Charles?
