Adrienne Barbeau Gets Ready to Soap Up on General Hospital


Yo, Adrienne! She's famous for playing kickass broads - from Broadway's original Rizzo in Grease to divorcee Carol Traynor in the landmark sitcom Maude to the snake charmer Ruthie in HBO's Carnivale - and now Adrienne Barbeau is doing it again on General Hospital. She joins the ABC soap August 12 as Suzanne Stanwyck, a Christiane Amanpour-type foreign correspondent who runs an organization that helps exploited children. And she doesn't need Angelina Jolie. Suzanne's goodwill ambassador is international mega-model Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo)! Barbeau is a pro at conquering new genres and winning new fan bases. After Maude, she turned horror-flick scream queen (The Fog, Creepshow, Swamp Thing). Later, she became a big hit on the 'toon circuit as the voice of Catwoman on Batman: The Animated Series and the follow-ups The Adventures of Batman & Robin, The New Batman Adventures and Gotham Girls. And now, in addition to her acting career, she's a novelist. Her second vampire tome, Love Bites: Vampyres of Hollywood II (St. Martin's Press), hits the market on Labor Day. The bodacious Barbeau spoke with TV Guide Magazine about her visit to Port Chuck - and we found out she knows that town pretty damn well!
