Giddens is hearing that the actress is in talks with GH to return to the role she initially played from 1988-1990.
Olivia was obsessed with the late Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan), and caused problems galore for Duke and Anna (Finola Hughes).
When last seen, Olivia was shot dead by her brother Julian (then Jason Culp; now William DeVry).
Julian is currently being targeted by a mystery person named Oscar Jessups. Many believe that Oscar is in fact a very much alive Olivia.
Walker is best known for her popular role of Alex Olanov on One Life to Live
