Fantastic news General Hospital fans! Daytime Emmy winner and longtime fan favorite, Jane Elliot is reprising her signature soap role as Tracy Quartermaine just in time for the holidays.

According to EW.com who broke the news, Eliot will make her appearances beginning in December, when Tracy comes home to Port Charles, and is embroiled in the ELQ family business.

Elliot’s last episode on GH aired May 4, 2017 when Jane made the decision to  to exit.

Her character left Port Charles by telling her family she was ready to have her own life, away from the shadow of her father. A later episode revealed that Tracy settled in Amsterdam after meeting up with Luke (Tony Geary).

Jane began playing the role of Tracy back in 1978.

So excited to hear Tracy Q will be home for a visit and to stir up some trouble? Comment below.

Great news of her return! I missed her tough character and snarky remarks with occasional vulnerability to be compassionate. Welcome back Tracy.

It’s a Christmas miracle!

Should be some great banter between Tracy and Brook Lynn. Love that they still have Setton referring to her as “granny”.

It’ll be a great time in Monica’s house, which Alan gave to her (because he was an idiot).

Merry Christmas! I dont see her being on too long, after all, she is retired. I just hope she stirs up some trouble and rectifies some weak cracks in the great Quartermaine legacy! Her and Ned are always great. She will chew Brooklyn a new you know what! Tracy never liked Louis. Oh, and send Mikey to the coffee house! He is no ELQ executive! Leave that to Ned! PS: Maybe Jane can comeback part time and be more of a Lila type of fixture?

I hope she brings jars of Pickled Lila and Artisan crackers. LOL. That was the most stomach turning story line watching the actors scarf down relish on crackers. For months.

Love Tracy, love Jane Elliot. So glad she’s dropping in Port Charles for however long her visit lasts. GH has missed her trademark wit and sarcasm. She looks fantastic with her grey hair in the current pic of her in the EW article. It’s refreshing to see an actress of a certain vintage that isn’t concerned with trying to look younger than she is. Welcome back, Jane!

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
