In story, Alice was the Quartermaine maid and shared many a memorable scene with the likes of Jane Elliot (Tracy), Tony Geary (Ex-Luke), John Ingle (Ex-Edward), Lynn Herring (Lucy) and many more.

It was current Quartermaine cast member, Wally Kurth (Ned), who shared Wednesday “Sending heartfelt condolences to Bergen’s family. She was bright light in the Q house for many years. RIP,” after learning of Williams’ passing.

Williams played the recurring role of Alice Gunderson, who was then nicknamed “Big Alice” from 2001 to the end of 2014 on the ABC daytime drama series, and even though the character was a maid by day, Alice moonlighted as a professional wrestler known as “The Dominator”.

We will continue to update this post as remembrances from her GH co-stars are posted.

Bergen was a great example of an actress taking a small role and making it unforgettable.

Never afraid to back down from the forces that were Edward and Tracy, Alice tried to keep the family in line, yet always protecting the Qs. Her taking down Heather (and AJ’s reaction) from her last Thanksgiving episode is just one highlight.

Sadly, when Alice stopped appearing and then stopped being mentioned, we knew something more was going on.

Hopefully, Frank can work in an episode where Monica, Ned and Michael learn of Alice’s passing.

Condolences to her sister and friends.

I am very shocked and saddened by this news. Bergen was great as Alice taking on the Q family. She created such a beloved character. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.

She made a lasting impression in a supporting role. Whether she was keeping the Q’s in order or wrapped up in a caper with “Mr. Luke” she was fabulous. Rest Bergen.

My deepest sympathy to her family and friends. There were two great maids on TV named Alice and she was one of them. Big Alice was one of a kind keeping the Q’s in line.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
