Rebecca Budig Leaves General Hospital
Rebecca Budig joined General Hospital in February as Hayden Barnes and has wrapped up her role on the show. She last aired on May 19 when her character seized after being shot and was rushed to surgery, leaving her in a coma.
Budig’s character was brought on by Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst) to pretend to be Jake Doe’s (Billy Miller) wife in an attempt to lure him away from Port Charles. Her character got mixed up with Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher), which led to her unfortunate end as she knew too much about Jake’s identity. He hired a hit man to take her out, though the hit man failed.
Budig is best known for playing Greenlee Smythe Lavery on “All My Children” from 1999 until 2011. She recently appeared on Hallmark’s Home & Family discussing her return to daytime.
