The internet has been abuzz today with rumors, speculation and conjecture regarding the reported departure of General Hospital's Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth).
Soapdom can now confirm that yes, Herbst, who has starred on General Hospital since 1997, is indeed heading tonew and different pastures.
According to our sources at the show, it's due to lack of story for the character.
Let's face it. Since Elizabeth and Lucky parted ways, and the affair with Nikolas dwindled to nothingness, there really hasn't been all that much for Elizabeth to do, but as she exits, we are guaranteed a sendoff fitting the character's longevity and popularity.
The official word on her departure is as follows:
“Storyline dictates the exit of Elizabeth Webber this spring. The next few months promise to be a 'not to miss' story for the character. We at ABC and GENERAL HOSPITAL wish Rebecca Herbst nothing but the best in all of her future endeavors.”
Soapdom is certainly sad to see her go, and likewise wishes her the best of everything.
But she's not gone yet. So let's all sit back and enjoy the time we have left with the character. I sure will.
