Not one I would’ve expected, but I’m not mad at it.
In an interview with Glamour, Ken Corday confirms that Leann Hunley (who played Anna DiMera from 1982-1986 and 2007-2010) will be back on our screens in a few months.
There are more surprise returns from the past to come. Leann Hunley (Anna) will be back in Salem [as well]. … You know, they come in for two or three months and then they go away and then they come back, and there’s a little mystery cloaked in it.
I’ve always enjoyed Hunley and Anna, so I’ll be happy to see her again, though I’ll be damned if I could guess what they’re going to do with her. Her last stint was all over the place. Are they going to pair her with Andre? Roman? A resurrected Tony? Will she turn out to have Tate as randomly as she had Sydney? Will they bring in Christie Clark (Carrie) for a day so they can finally be on the show at the same time? Nevertheless, her reintroduction and the explanation of where she’s been will at least keep me awake for an episode or two.
The interview linked above is worth a read for those who are interested in spoiler-ish material. It’s typical Ken Corday teasing, but he offers some glimpses into what’s to come that kind of intrigued me: an actual story for JJ and Gabi? A big return that plays into Nicole’s story? We shall see…
