    Temporarily due to health reasons. She’s apparently been *in and out of hospitals.* The old gal is 83 so I hope she’s okay. SInce Katherine is right in the middle of a storyline they have to bring in a faux Katherine. It will be Michael Learned (Ma/Olivia Walton on *The Waltons). She starts taping as Kay Chancellor next week. I think she’s about a DECADE younger than Jeanne Cooper.

    There’s a story about this on the Entertainment Weekly website. I wasn’t sure if posting a link to it was allowed here, so I won’t.

    I hope that Jeanne get’s well soon! It will be interesting to see Michael playing the role. I have never seen her play a wealthy matriarch before! Her usual stuff is lower to middle class but she has alot of grace about her so I think she can pull it off.

    She played one on Law & Order: SVU one episode, and I thought she was believable in the role. This is about as good of a recast as was possible.

    Hope Jeanne gets well soon!

    No one should be taking her place, they should have her go out of town with Murphy for a rest. Get well soon Jeanne!!

    Katherine is being temporarily recast. Gonna be tough to find someone even close, but I hope Jeanne Cooper gets well soon. Hope its’nothing serious. She is so good and fiery on the show, sometimes I forget she is actually up there in age!

    Michael Learned was fabulous as cancer patient Shirley on GH. I’m sure she’ll do fine keeping Ms Cooper’s role warm!
