Chloe Lanier’s General Hospital Castmates Post Heartfelt Messages As She Wraps Her Run

Courtesy/ABC

This week marked the final appearances of Daytime Emmy-winner, Chloe Lanier as Nelle Benson.  As viewers saw, Nelle is going to prison for a laundry list of crimes, but before she left she had a few choice parting words for Carly (Laura Wright), where she tells her nemesis, she hates her and that everything is Carly’s fault. I would watch your back, Carly! You never know if Nelle might break out of a prison and come looking for you!

But no matter what terrible things Nelle did on-screen, Chloe off-screen became such a respected actress and valuable friend, and castmate, to so many actors on the show that they took to their social media accounts to share their sentiments on her departure as she wrapped-up her wildly successful run.

Here is just a sampling below:

Laura Wright: “Ohhh Miss @chloelanier123 I am so honored to have spent the past 2 years playing with you !! You are beautiful- talented – brave – thoughtful-funny – kind ….. the list just goes on……enjoy every second of this crazy journey —absorb every lesson every win and disappointment…. they all have great things to teach you — Now go Kick Ass!!”

Chad Duell (Michael) “Been a great ride with you ! You brought a crazy good spark to the show, and I have really enjoyed working with you! You da best  ..thanks for not killing me.”

Josh Swickard (Chase): “Whether you loved her, or loved to hate her, everyone can agree on this lady’s talent. Thank you for helping me find my footing on this show. You’re a phenomenal person and actress. Sad day on set (except @duelly – what the heck haha). I am a fan of your work @chloelanier123, and I can’t wait to watch your career.”

James Patrick Stuart  (Valentin) “ It wont be the same around here… like, ever again. But how lucky the next place is.”

Steve Burton (Jason):  “We know now how well deserved your Emmy is from watching your performance through out this story. You are a rockstar. You will soar. Continue to work as hard as you do and nothing will stop you. All the best to you -sb”

In the end, Chloe thanked her GH fans: “Thank you to all of my passionate and lovely fans !!! I love you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for helping make the past two years some of the best of my life. Also…Nelle isn’t dead. She isn’t done.”

While I won’t miss all of Nelle’s evil deeds, I’ll sure miss watching a phenomenonal young actress make the most of a great role. Laura Wright is correct in praising Chloe’s bravery. It takes a real commitment to make such a hateful character that believable and pathetic. Hate to say it, but I hope we haven’t seen the very last of her!

Chloe Lanier’ is a treasure of Young talent..
She will go far and up..
We will be seeing her again, where? to be continued.

I liked Chloe Lanier from her very first appearance in Luke’s full-cuticle story, the black & white 50th ..
We all noticed her talent.
It was a very good move to keep her on.

Wish they had brought her in with a less awkward, unbelievable character. I wish her success in a better realized character elsewhere.

She would have been an absolute natural as Val…Given Chloe’s stunning debut as the sweet, beautiful Patricia, casting her as her mother’s lookalike daughter (and conniving homewrecker of a Spencer cousin) would have provided the great drama that this uber-talented actress always delivers! I consider this lack of foresight to be one of GH’s most missed opportunities for creating a successful, enduring and memorable character worthy of the legacy family from which she was conceived.

You bet, su….Chloe certainly has that very elusive IT factor which so many look for and strive to achieve. Wish her the best….

The character was written into a corner, and a lot of her backstory was off-air. I never understood her hatred towards Carly, they weren’t sisters. However, that is just bad story-telling. Although, the character was written into a corner, the actress did a phenomenol job portraying Nelle Benson. I think she will go far in the entertainment industry. Best of luck to her.

dmr,that has always bothered me. I would have loved for that loose end to be tied up. Why did she really hate Carly? With all the bad stuff in that girl’s life, how exactly did Carly figure into it?

Good actress. But happy this story is wrapped up for now.

Chloe really knocked it out of the park during her exit story. She acts with every part of her body and it’s fascinating to watch her body language and her subtle shifts of facial expression to convey what she is thinking and feeling. Some actors just recite the lines, but she inhabits the character and brings it to life. Kudos also to Laura Wright in their final scenes. It’s so satisfying and entertaining to watch great actors interact. Best of luck to Chloe. It’s been a great ride!

I think Chad Duell said it best; she “brought a crazy good spark” to GH. Best Wishes to Chole on her next adventure. She’ll be missed.

Hate what the writers did with the character during the second half of her run. Nell was a complex character in the begining, she had remorse for what she was doing. Later they wrote her as a murdering psycho looking for a big payday. Easy, lazy writing. But, through her whole run Chloe was compelling and always watchable, well deserving of her Emmy.

I enjoyed her storyline the last several months–after she really went crazy and turned on Carly. Before that, I had about zero interest in the character.
