She won a Daytime Emmy® nomination for her role as “Diane Miller” on General Hospital, a part she still enjoys. Kids across America also know her as the hilariously haughty Mrs. Chesterfield on Disney Channel’s Jessie. They also know her as the author of the bestselling Pandora book series.
Hennesy’s other memorable roles include “Rosalyn Harris,” the ageless vamp with a Texas twang on HBO’s True Blood and as “Barb”, who tossed one-liners like firecrackers on ABC’s Cougar Town.
On the big screen, Hennesy’s credits include Click starring Adam Sandler, Legally Blonde 2with Reese Witherspoon, and Terminator 3 starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Next up, she’ll appear in Mostly Ghostly 2 opposite Bella Thorne and Ryan Ochoa.
