If you haven’t already cried yourself a river over the demise of Dr. Britt Westbourne on last week’s episodes of General Hospital, we suggest you grab some Kleenex and then check out the heartfelt farewell video posted by Britt’s portrayer, Daytime Emmy-winning actress, Kelly Thiebaud.

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.

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… Read more »

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!❤️

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.

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.

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.
