VIDEO: ATWT's Cady McClain Previews Rosanna's Oakdale Return

Cady McClain

As the World Turns' Rosanna will really make her presence known this week when she resurfaces in Oakdale, raising a few eyebrows and wrinkling a few people's plans along the way.

Daytime vet Cady McClain — who frankly has not aged a day since I first interviewed her [coughcough] years ago — came by the TVGuide.com offices to talk up her CBS soap heroine's can't-miss homecoming.

Among the topics covered in this video Q&A:

• Who in Oakdale will be most happy to see Rosanna? And who will be rather "irked" by her return?

• Why Rosanna's dynamic with a certain Oakdale hunk is "like wrestling a big, fat seal!"

• What is Ro's take on the Carly-Craig romance? "She's like, 'Oh, no, wrong guy! Been there, done that, don't do it!'"

• For McClain, what has been "the most interesting thing" about reprising the role of Rosanna?

Reconstructive Surgery: Inside General Hospital's Makeover

Surely Monica can tell Patrick what a vast improvement the new hub is, versus the olden days.

On April 14, not long before it becomes the first ABC sudser to  broadcast in high definition, General Hospital will unveil a new nurses' hub, that pivotal set's first freshening-up in many a year. And it's well-deserved, too, since the location was blown to bits last month as the casualty of a plot twist. GH production designer Chip Dox offered TVGuide.com an inside look at how and why the hospital's nerve center got a much-needed redo. Check out photos here.

TVGuide.com: Which came first — the decision to have an explosion in the hospital or the idea to update the nurses' hub?
