‘General Hospital’ (GH) Spoilers finds that Carolyn Hennessy is going to be starring in a brand new movie, set for online release on Vimeo called “She & Her” about a seasoned actress who gets invited by a young, up and coming counterpart to share her stories of being abused in Hollywood.
You also might recognize another face from GH in the movie, Mackenzie Breeden, who plays the young ingenue inviting Hennessy to share her experiences. Breeden moonlighted as a waitress on GH before this gig.
‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Caroline Hennessy to star in new movie!
Another GH Alum is Gwen Hillier, who worked as a casting associate on the sudser before she went back to acting on shows such as Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Transparent.
The film first premiered privately in April 2019 and was screened at nine different festivals. Hennessy herself likes to keep busy and keeps her dance card varied, she does a lot of cameos in movies and TV shows but I think this may be the first time we’ve seen her in a film premiering exclusively online.
The change of venue is a little odd, but not at all unwelcome. Times are changing and more and more services are streaming movies instead of just releasing them via traditional channels now. Now that the internet is everywhere, streaming a movie is no longer just reserved for nerds, now practically everyone is doing it.
And us Hennessy fans are receiving an extra treat because we get to watch her stretch her acting muscles and transform into yet another role. She gets to play a jaded actress against Breeden’s wide-eyed inexperience. It’ll certainly be interesting to watch, and perhaps compare and contract how the character differs from Diane.
It could be argued even without seeing the performance that the character differs greatly from Diane because poor Diane always seems to be fighting a losing battle when it comes to defending Sonny and Jason against various court cases and jail time they have against them.
I mean, she really, really goes out of her way to help these guys in a seemingly thankless job. Winning or not, can you imagine what kind of a retainer fee the Corinthos family pays? Whew! Either way, we look forward to seeing what she has to offer in this new movie. Stay tuned!!
