News that thrilled me broke while I was off for a few days, Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber, General Hospital) is staying in Port Chuck! Now, ABC has issued an official statement regarding the star's status.
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.
While the statement does not offer a reason, unlike her "storyline dictated" departure, I commend her fans who were large and loud. Love that Lizzie will continue to be a fixture in Port Charles and most importantly that Rebecca is staying home.
