    Besides Abby and Diana (and some would say Val), were there any other characters that left and came back after a while AND portrayed by the same original actor?

    If you're counting ghosts, you could also count flashback versions of Mack and Greg.

    When did Paula go and come back ?
    I'm talking characters that were gone for a while then came back, like at least a season

    Paula first appeared in one episode early in season 10 and her storyline appeared to have concluded. The character then came back towards the end of that season after being off screen for about 10 episodes.
    That's not what you originally asked though, you just said "came back after a while" and I considered a 10 episode absence to be "a while".

    Ok gotcha!
    Yeah my thought was about actors whose contracts ended but still came back. To see how many actors were willing to actually come back and reprise their roles so to say.

    There were a lot of characters that should have returned like Annie (at least for her dad's funeral) but didn't
