Television actress Carolyn Hennesy had her career beginnings in the early ’90s. She made her debut with a minor role in the movie I Don’t Buy Kisses Anymore in 1992. She next starred in the movie Lightning in a Bottle. On television, she began with guest roles. Her first recurring part was as Chase Gardner in Jenny. In the 2000s, she was notable for playing Mrs. Valentine in Dawson’s Creek.
She also started playing the starring role of Diane Miller in the medical soap opera General Hospital. She still plays the said role up to now. At the same time, she played the recurring character of Barb in the series Cougar Town. In addition, she also played recurring role Mrs. Rhoda Chesterfield in the Disney series Jessie. As a film actress, she had acted in the features The Elite, Click, Cougar Club, and Necessary Evil.
She may be in her 50s but the television star manages to stay in shape by sticking to proper nutrition. She observes a healthy diet plan on a daily basis, which greatly helps her maintain a healthy weight. In an interview, she was asked what her particular diet is. She said: “I watch the carbs, but haven’t cut them entirely. I should be more conscientious about breakfast, but usually it’s tea and vitamins. Lunch is usually anything but a salad and dinner is (attempted to be) eaten before 7:00 pm. I’m not big on desserts, so that helps.”
On her go-to snacks, she said: “I’m a sucker for the crispy seaweed that’s all the rage right now.” Of course, while she tries to lead a healthy diet plan, she also has indulgences. When it comes to her cravings, she said: “Macadamia nuts. If I’ve gotten my hands on a jar of roasted, salted macadamias, don’t even try to talk to me…you’ll just get frustrated with my lack of response.”
