As previously reported, Ilene Kristen is returning to daytime television courtesy of ABC’s “General Hospital” – the actress debuts today. While ABC wouldn’t necessarily confirm which character Kristen would be playing – Delia Reid from “Ryan’s Hope” or even Roxy Balsom on “One Life to Live” – when pressed for comment by Soap Opera Network on Friday, “GH” head writer, Ron Carlivati, spilled the beans over the weekend via Twitter.

Carlivati tweeted, “Don’t miss @ilenekristen reprise her role as the one and only Delia Reid Ryan this Monday & Tuesday on @GeneralHospital! #GH #RyansHope.” He added to his tweet a short time ago when he said, “Today on @GeneralHospital, Delia Reid Ryan returns to ABC Daytime! #GH @ilenekristen pic.twitter.com/gkpW9PWGRY.” He linked to a cover from defunct magazine Afternoon TV, which had Kristen on the cover as her character from “Hope.”
