On her Instagram account on Sunday, Thiebaud not only shared her parting thoughts and ‘thank you’s’ to the cast, creatives and the fans, but posted along with it a beautiful look-back at her time on the show.

From Britt’s beginnings were she was a thorn in Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina’s (Teresa Castillo) side, to her relationships with a young Spencer Cassadine (Nicolas Bechtel) and Emma Scorpio Drake (Brooklyn Rae Silzer), to her one-of-a-kind friendship with her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen), to her burgeoning relationship with Jason (Steve Burton) before he died, to her work as a doctor and her relationship with her mutter, Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati), it’s all contained along with behind-the-scenes moments in Thiebaud’s farewell video.

In her parting thoughts, Kelly expressed: “A tribute to all the years I’ve been lucky enough to entertain you as Dr.Britt Westbourne and lucky enough to work with such wonderful and kind people. Being on this show, being in your living rooms everyday, is an experience I will cherish for the rest of my life. Thank you for all of the amazing support over the years. There are so many people not in this video only because I didn’t get a picture with you but I truly miss seeing all of your faces at work. One day I hope to share all of my stories about being on General Hospital with my kids and what a fun time I had. I love you all. ❤️ p.s. sorry this video is so long 😬 #brittwestbourne”

Transinvisibility: She shared a role with Terry Randolph. It has been a week and no scene with Terry finding out, grieving, etc. Did this relationship not merit a mention when relationships that were quite old with people dead got mentioned?

Donald???

Politics isn’t everything in life. It may be the reason Cassandra James has a job, but in a production like GH, there’s so much to consider…

Like the truth, that since the character of Terry was introduced, there’s been not one single line of dialogue from her mouth that’s not been whiny, monochrome, and just flat. If Terry’s portrayer could act, they probably would have been front and center.

Does ‘transvisibility’ mean we have to settle on mediocrity, and watch someone read through their lines rather than act them?

I think GH made the right choice…
Just sayin’

Terry Randolph also appears in a show called “Sort Of” so perhaps she was busy with other filming and other projects.

By the way… do check out “Sort Of” it is hilarious and quite a smart show.

my apologies, I meant Cassandra James, the actress who plays Terry Randolph, is on “Sort Of”

You are truly one classy lady Kelly. Thank you for all you gave to bringing Britt Westbourne to life and such a pleasure to watch. I will be watching Station 19 now just to see your acting talents.

Me too but I have one question why wasn’t anything said about epiphany on gh something should of been done or said she was one hell of lady I loved her dairly.

If a Devil remembers correctly, GH is currently taping about 2 months ahead of time, so that being the case they haven’t caught up to Epiphany’s passing yet.

Yes, either Kelly or Parry posted something indicating they filmed the karaoke scene on November 17.

The writers need to think of a way to explain Epiphany’s departure. Normally, they would write the character dying. However, they just killed off the (co) Chief of Staff. To have the head of nursing die right after (despite real life events) might be too much too soon. Assuming they’ll add Britt’s photo to the memorial wall (with Steve, Jessie, Alan et al).

They’ll probably do a tribute episode to Sonya sometime in the Spring. Maybe a title card “In Loving Memory” later this month.

Hate to see her go

I loved watching you on General Hospital. I will miss Britt.

True heart.

I like Kelly and I liked the character of Britt. I miss Britt, but I’m glad we didn’t have to see her suffer further with Huntington’s. I hope one day they can bring Kelly back as a different character, if she wants to.

I was beginning to enjoy Brit’s performance more& more every day. Losing Jason & Britt were 2 of the biggest mistakes ever. Their chemistry was like no other. Best wishes to u!❤️

Kelly you did quite a show, I admired you everyday, every minute and I will miss you.

New Details Emerge in Fatal Shooting of General Hospital’s Johnny Wactor; Was Protecting Female Co-Worker From Armed Car Thieves

The brother of Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) has come forward with some new information on the act of violence that took the life of the General Hospital favorite on Saturday May 25th in the wee hours of the morning in downtown Los Angeles.

As valiant as man as Johnny was to all those who know and loved him, he was through and through that man till the very end. According to Grant Wactor, Johnny actually shielded a female co-worker at the time of the crime before he was fatally shot.  Three men were trying to steal Wactor’s catalytic converter from his vehicle, one of which fired the shot that killed the former GH star.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Wactor was leaving his side job as a bartender at a downtown LA rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25am when he saw the three men near his vehicle at West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street.

Believing he was being towed, he approached the men to try to discuss it. One of the men then looked up and pointed a gun at Wactor, who put his body in front of his female co-worker as he was shot. Police say, the three men were all wearing masks, and then fled the scene in another car.  The suspects currently remain at-large.

Grant commented on his brother’s last act of bravery, “We’re Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.” He added that Johnny, “Thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’ And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.

Sadly, Grant revealed, Johnny was shot in the chest, and that Johnny and his co-worker had to park about two blocks from the restaurant, so they were walking to their cars after they finished their shift when the incident unfolded.

Grant shared that he hopes justice will be served and the men are caught, “I hope they are able to track the people who did this. I am glad in a way that this is getting the publicity so that it could shed some light that things need to change, or find ways so that no one else has to experience this – whether it be a murder or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

In what has already been horrific that we lost Johnny to a senseless act of gun violence over an attempted theft, learning that the actor died right after protecting somebody else, only reinforces the kind of man Wactor was to all those who knew and loved him.
