The actress, who recently returned to DAYS for the series' 50th anniversary, announced on Twitter that she visited the ABC soap on October 15 to resume her directing work. "@GeneralHospital @valentinifrank thanks for having me direct today," she wrote (@valentinifrank being the show's executive producer, Frank Valentini). "I loved getting to play in Port Charles!"
This isn't Sweeney's first time directing GH. She first stepped into the role during the summer of 2014, shortly after walking away from her longtime DAYS role. Said Valentini at the time: "She's sort of paid her dues and spent some time learning the show. I asked her if she was available and she said yes."
While ABC isn't revealing yet what will take place in the Sweeney-directed scenes, soapcentral.com can report that Sweeney worked with Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall). Monaco had high praise for Sweeney, saying, "Your vision pulled it all together. #girlpower."
Watch for Sweeney's latest GH episode to air in November.
