"I made up a little backstory for myself that a lot of her dreams had not come true, that she was working over at Ryan’s and had to go back to a place that maybe she didn't want to go back to," Kristen revealed to Soap Opera Digest. "The most important thing that I believe that I did when I did GENERAL HOSPITAL was show her vulnerability, because that is what Delia always had, a tremendous amount of vulnerability."
