Sean Blakemore makes a one-day return to GH today, reprising the role of Shawn Butler, which has earned him a second nomination for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor. Making sporadic GH appearances "is better for me," says the actor, who will next be seen on the upcoming season of DEVIOUS MAIDS. He enjoys visiting his old stomping grounds, noting, "It's been really fun to go, 'Hey, how are you guys doing? Okay, see you later!' " Particularly meaningful to Blakemore was viewer excitement over his comeback. "It really touches me in a positive way," he says of the response he got on social media. "It just makes me smile and all I can say is, 'Thank you so much.' The fans remain in my corner and it was just so overwhelming. I've been gone almost a year!
