ABC ‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers tease that star Rebecca Budig (ex-Hayden) is opening up about her nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards, which will be held virtually for the very first time. While Rebecca is very excited about the nomination, she says that she also can’t wait for all the online action, just like so many GH and daytime fans out there. Here’s what she has to say.
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Rebecca says that the moment she found out that she was nominated was one that she will never forget! The actress said, “My first call was rom Alicia Minshew who was like, screaming her head off, so excited. Then Frank Valentini called, which was very nice, and we ended up talking for about 40 minutes and catching up, since he hadn’t talked since I left the show. Michael Easton was the first one to text me. He was very happy for me.”
