Quinne, who left the soap in 2004 and lived nearly 10 years in the United States, has recently returned to South Africa with her family, and that's official!
At the end of October, she'll be back on the show as Connie, the role she previously played for five years.
"Her first episode will be broadcast on October 31," confirmed Rosa Mari Erasmus, publicity officer of 7de Laan.
"I can not give away the plot, but what I can say is that no one in the Laan will know the real reason Connie is back in Hillside."
And it seems the viewers won;t be let in on the secret either!
"Viewers won't know why she is there, why she stayed away or what's going to happened to her now she's back."
"Viewers will see how the story unfolds, " said Rosa Mari.
Oh, we cannot wait to see what awaits Connie!
It's sure to be a great year for Quinne. not only is she back on SA TV screens, she'll also celebrate Christmas back on home soil this year with her American husband, Ryan Huffman and their two daughters, Charlotte (5) and Lara (2).
The family now lives in Johannesburg. Welcome back Quinne!
