Yup -- General Hospital Keeps Rebecca Herbst

User Rating: / 7

Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth, GH)Several weeks ago, word came down from General Hospital that long time, fan favorite, Rebecca Herbst, would be leaving Port Charles when her character, Elizabeth Webber, left the show due to storyline reasons. The official word was:

"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."

It didn't take long for the fans to become extremely vocal about their displeasure at this news. Apparently, the promise of 'not to miss' story for the character was not enough to placate a fan base that has loved the character of Elizabeth for years.

Although the show is not coming straight out and admitting that fan pressure is what's made the difference, Rebecca Herbst fans can now rejoice. Soapdom can confirm that yes, Herbst and her alter ego, Webber, are staying put in Port Charles.

The new official word from the show is:

"Rebecca Herbst will continue on General Hospital as Elizabeth Webber. The show is thrilled she will remain on the canvas to portray the beloved character in many more poignant and emotional stories. Fans will be pleased to see Rebecca continue the role she created."

I am beyond thrill that Rebecca Herbst is staying because she is a very talented and beautiful actress. I am finally glad that ABC decided to listen to the fans. I am looking forward to Elizabeth reuniting with her love Jason Morgan. I want to see Jason and Elizabeth's love story finally told on GH that has been 11 years in the making. VIVA LIASON VIVA BECKYNATION.
