As first reported by Soap Opera Digest, (ex-Roxy Balsom, “One Life to Live”) will again be reprising her “Ryan’s Hope” role of Delia Ryan on ABC’s “.”

Kristen first re-appeared as the character on two episodes of “GH” back in October 2013. In those episodes, viewers learned that Delia is the mother of Ava Jerome () and grandmother of Kiki Jerome ().

“Ilene did a fantastic job and Delia is an important character. I think her return will show viewers another side to Ava,” said “GH” Executive Producer  to Digest.

But exactly when will viewers see Kristen’s episodes first air? “She’s back very soon,” assures Valentini.
