Previously Reported on September 23:

After months of speculation, and with the recent end of Guiding Light, and her role as Dinah Marler, Gina Tognoni is heading back to Llanview as Kelly Cramer in 2010!

Gina created the role back in 1995 and stayed with the show until 2001, with a brief return in 2002 before the character was recast with Tracy Melchior (The Bold and the Beautiful’s ex-Kristen Forrester Dominguez) then Heather Tom (The Bold and the Beautiful’s Katie Logan).

With news of Dan Gauthier’s brief return fans have been hoping that Kelly would come back home with Kevin – but their returns will not be related!

Soaps.com wants to congratulate Gina on her return to her Daytime roots! The actress will begin taping in January 2010.
