General Hospital's Rebecca Herbst Takes Ill. Martha Madison to Pinch Hit

User Rating: / 1

Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth, GH)General Hospital fans, get your thoughts and prayers in gear. Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth) has come down with an illness. We are not sure what, but we do know that whatever it is, it is putting her out of commission acting-wise for a little bit.

Due to her illness, the role of Elizabeth Webber will be temporarily recast by Martha Madison with a first air date of June 8th.

Soap fans will remember Madison from her role as Belle Brady on Days of our Lives, a role originally played by Kristen Storms (Maxie, GH). What's of interest here is that Madison was the replacement for Charity Rahmer, the actress who first won the role after Kristen Storms left. Rahmer's stay in Salem was short lived, however, when producers and fans alike did not take to her interpretation of the character. Madison, who had originally read for the role, but lost out to Rahmer, was immediately called in to read for the role again. The producers loved what they saw this time, and she was put straight to work.

Martha MadisonMadison can currently be seen as Marly Nelson-Foster in the web series, The Bay.

The cast and crew of General Hospital, along with all of us at Soapdom.com, wish Becky Herbst a speedy recovery. Our contacts at GH expect her to be back at work soon. Get well quickly, Becky!

Past Blast

Days of our Lives Molly Burnett had no doubts on returning

Her beauty, her charm, and her bubbly personality, not to mention how she lights up a room, Molly Burnett (Melanie, Days of our Lives) is back and she says the best is yet to come.

"Yes! The best is definitely yet to come. Keep watching," she jokingly said. "I really love what I do, and I do it for the fans. After all they are the people that are watching."

Fans of the show will remember Burnett from her four-year stint on the show, but now, after a two year absence, she is ready to take on Salem once again and is thrilled about being back.
