Great news today from Frank Valentini, the EP of General Hospital courtesy of Soap Opera Digest! Ilene Kristen, who reprised her role of Delia Ryan Coleridge from Ryan’s Hope on GH, is coming back to the show and it looks like she may even be in scenes with Delia’s daughter, Ava Jerome (Maura West)!
As GH fans know, the former OLTL favorite, where she played Roxy Balsom, did a short stint that aired in October of 2013. However, that appearance has proven to be an important part of the story that Frank Valentini and GH head writer, Ron Carlivati were laying out.
As to when Ilene will be back on the GH set, Valentini told SOD, ” She’s back very soon. Ilene did a fantastic job and Delia is an important character. I think her return will show viewers another side to Ava.” Maura West added to that comment stating, “Ilene is fantastic and I look forward to having scenes with her. That mother/daughter relationship is one I would love to see fleshed out.”
So, are you excited to know that Ilene is coming back to General Hospital! Who knows? Maybe Delia could end being a character that gets used alot on the canvas in Port Charles, because now she has ties to the Jerome Clan! Let us know your thoughts on the news!
