Gina Wilhelm Actress – From Actress to Writer
When Carolyn Hennesy isn’t on the set of “General Hospital” playing mob lawyer Diane Miller, she still keeps busy. She writes young adult novels.
Hennesy is currently attending book signings and visiting with students in promotion of the 3rd book in her “Pandora” series, “Pandora Gets Lazy.”
Hennesy says readers relate to her protagonist, Pandora Atheneus Andromaeche, because “it’s all about girl power…You’re at that age when the weight of the world is on your shoulders and no one understands you.”
She says that while there are parts of her personality in her “General Hospital” character, Pandora is all her.
She says her husband would agree that at any given moment, she’s 13 years old, just like “Pandy.”
She’s thrilled to find that boys are also reading the book series.
Hennesy also talked about her role on “General Hospital,” which was originally only supposed to last 2 days.
She didn’t watch the show, which she says helped her. If she’d realized how popular costar Maurice Bernard, who plays mob boss Sonny Corinthos, was she would have been “too tongue-tied” to land the part.
