General Hospital: How Old Is Vanessa Marcil?

Sometimes daytime television fans think they know everything about their favorite actors – both on screen and off – until they realize there’s so much more to learn about them! In fact, now that General Hospital alum Vanessa Marcil is making the news again, there are some people out there who can’t help but wonder how old she is. The actress, who was best known for her role as Brenda Barrett on the hit ABC soap, is always stirring something up on social media. Here’s what you need to know.

General Hospital: How Old Is Vanessa Marcil?

So, how old is Vanessa Marcil? As of press time, she is 55 years old. Her birthday is October 15, 1968. Her former General Hospital co-star Kelly Monaco is 47 while Laura Wright is 53. Kirsten Storms, meanwhile, is 39.

Why hasn’t Vanessa been asked back on General Hospital? That’s what fans want to know, too. As many General Hospital fans can recall, Brenda began her hot and steamy romance with mobster Sonny Corinthos during a time when crime was high on the streets of Port Charles. Brenda and Sonny’s hot and passionate chemistry was also one of  the reasons why General Hospital enjoyed some of its highest ratings in the early 90’s. 

General Hospital: What’s Next For Vanessa Marcil?

While everyone knows in the soap world that you are never really dead even when they hammer in that last nail in your coffin, there’s always a chance that Brenda might come back. And if she does come back, Brenda would certainly make the ground shake from beneath her in this fictional town of Port Charles. The one person who would feel it the most of course is her ex, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). 

Maurice once told Soaps in Depth in a new interview, “If I had my say, she would have been back about five years ago. She brings ratings and if you put two and two together, that’s four. So, if you bring her back, it’s a no brainer.”

It goes without saying that General Hospital fans will have to tune in each and every day to find out what will happen next! Watch this space as there is more to come.
