Rebecca Budig is officially back at GH (and on contract) as Hayden and the character will emerge from the coma she's been languishing in since May, when she was shot in the head on orders from lover/blackmailing target Nikolas. When Executive Producer Frank Valentini called to invite her back, "I was surprised!" she reports. "I thought I came in and I did my job, and that was all that I was meant to do — come in, cause some trouble and leave." She's thrilled to have been wrong, saying, "I love being there and I am working with a great bunch of people." For more with Budig, check out the issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale today.
