Brenda Barrett has always been a fan-favorite character on “General Hospital.” Vanessa Marcil originated the role in 1992 and has been back to Port Charles since officially leaving in 1998. Last year Marcil brought Brenda Barrett back for a short stint at the Nurses Ball where her engagement to Jasper Jacks went sour. Since then, fans have been hoping for a return. According to a May 12 report from Soap Central, Vanessa Marcil may be headed back to “General Hospital” once again. Rumors like this are always running, but recent references to the character have given fans more hope.
When Julian Jerome came to town, Sonny looked into who was funding the organization. As it turns out, Shawn found information leading back to Barrett enterprises. Brenda's sister Julia runs the company now, and was linked to Bill Eckert in the 90s. All of this leads fans to believe the Barretts may be returning to Port Charles sooner rather than later.
Fans have been stalking Vanessa Marcil's Twitter page, but nothing of substance has come out. She often retweets stuff pertaining to “General Hospital,” but that is likely because she still has many friends on the show. Marcil has openly said she would love to return as Brenda Barrett as long as scheduling works. This is a huge relief to fans who are still hoping for a Sonny and Brenda reunion.
More than likely fans will be seeing Vanessa Marcil on “General Hospital” again. She has a role which is linked to a lot of the main characters, especially Sonny. If Jason returns, that may lead Brenda Barrett back to Port Charles. Rumors have been swirling about Jacks coming back as well, perhaps that will mean Brenda and Jacks will reconile? Whichever way the writers want to go, fans will happily get behind just to have Brenda back on the canvas.
