General Hospital spoilers: Carolyn Hennesy Is Nominated for An Emmy Award
Hennesy says that she was actually shocked she was nominated despite submitting a reel of her scenes to the Academy. “You could have knocked me over with a feather,” she said.
Every actor who wishes to be nominated must submit a reel of scenes that showcase their best work. Carolyn submitted scenes in which she acted opposite Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn).
Specifically, the reel focused on the, “intervention scenes in Sam’s (Kelly Monaco) apartment. Alexis knows she’s been ambushed and she is not there willingly. Diane asks to go first. She cannot speak extemporaneously as she could in court because her best friend’s life is on the line.”

Hennesy went on to say of her character: “She actually has to unfold this paper and look down and she still gets verklempt. Diane became incredibly emotional. She realizes that Alexis could be gone the next time she gets into a car drunk. She has this problem and she’s not looking at it. Diane is fighting for Alexis’s life more than Alexis is.”
Alexis did wind up going to jail this year, but not because of the incident in which she was framed for drunk driving. Alexis is currently in jail for almost killing Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna)—she has a busy life!

Hennesy went on to say of her character, “Diane doesn’t have a tremendous number of close friends. So, when her best friend is committing slow suicide, there’s a ferocity that Diane wants to bring out but she knows it will absolutely backfire. I have friends in life going through situations. Some are similar to Alexis’s situation and some are not similar. I’ve actually orchestrated interventions. The odds are that they will go well are very slim.”
