Now, here is a blast from the past, and actually a fun gem of casting. Former TV sitcom sexy bomb, Adrienne Barbeau (Remember Maude?) is joining the cast of General Hospital later his summer as a confidante and friend to the returning Vanessa Marcil as Brenda.
Tvguide.com has the scoop that states, “Barbeau will play a tough-as-nails broad called Suzanne Stanwyck who runs a charity agency for children in Italy. GH head writer Bob Guza says we’ll first see the women working together in Rome — Marcil hits the air August 11; Barbeau on August 12 — and they will eventually make their way to Port Charles together.
Head writer, Guza told TV Guide.com “Despite her hard edge, Suzanne has a lot of love for others, including Brenda — she’s her confidante, so to speak. As we get to know Suzanne better, she’ll have a surprising feminine side.”
Barbeau will be around for several weeks at least, and maybe even longer according to the post.
