GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

Photo: ABC

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Love Becky, she’s always so appreciative of the fans and never fails to thank us. I’m glad she loved the flowers and Smile Train donation, she deserves to be celebrated, every year. I’m still very hopeful for Friz, I think Roger and Becky have the most electric onscreen chemistry I’ve ever seen, and I can’t see at this point how Roger can come back as anyone but Franco, given where we are in his murder story and the timeframe… BUT I’m a BeckyFF and always will be, so I’m just hopeful for some good story to come Elizabeth’s way, no… Read more »

She’s a warm and generous woman and deserves accolades all on her own but honestly I’ve have never been so enamoured with a pairing on a show, prime time or daytime Friz captured my heart with heir playful and romantic stories as well as the mysteries they had the opportunity to share. I’m hoping the writers are exercising their creative imagination and return hm as Franco

I love Rebecca, wish she had more air time, I cringe every time I see Carly inserted in every storyline, while Rebecca’s Elizabeth gets less airtime then non contract players, its really messed up. Still, when she’s on she’s magical, Happy Birthday Rebecca.

She is a living person I do not think it ever enters her mind I be jealous or vindictive like I said she is a good soul so take the scenes you get with her abs appreciate it why do you think RH wanted to work with her? They all love her so she is the winner no matter if she has story or not

Becky is the very definition of love and grace. She deserves every bit of any accolades coming her way. As a LizFF, I’ve loved almost all her pairings at one time or another. I would probably be up for a Liz/Rogers nu character pairing because they really did generate the best chemistry, but otherwise, new character for me. Finn is her sisters baby daddy, Finn is still clearly in love with Anna, I dont want Liz to be second choice. Mostly I just want Liz to have a story about HER, not her love interest, not her kid, not nurse… Read more »

Under this new writing regime this past year or so, Elizabeth has continously served as a plot point for other people’s stories. From her rekindled friendship/”flirtation” with Nikolas as means of building story for Nava to worrying about and wrongfully accusing Jason of having killed her husband. By the way, on what planet would Franco and Elizabeth be okay with their spouses kissing others or that Elizabeth wouldn’t visit Jason in prison to clarify her doubts? These past few years, Elizabeth has become increasingly isolated as a character. People in her life have either died, left town, or are hardly… Read more »

You are beautiful, Rebecca–inside and out. Happy, Happy Birthday and a million more!!
Rebecca shines as Liz, as well–if only she were given the chance to recapture her life, instead of so much drama and trauma thrown her way.
I appreciate her steadfast love for Franco. If his return is definite; I so hope he will reappear as Franco again by some kind of Divine Providence.
Perhaps Elizabeth will be the heroine and connect all the dots leading to Cyrus’ and Peter’s dastardly deeds. Will she uncover Elijah as a part of Cyrus’ corrupt circle?

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
