GH’s Kathleen Gati on Liesl Learning Britt is Sick: “This Was the Most Painful and Profound Episode I Have Filmed in 10 Years”

This week in a preview of a heartbreaking episode of General Hospital, Liesl (Kathleen Gati) will learn her daughter, Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), now has developed symptoms of Huntington’s Disease and its progression is making Dr. Westbourne very sick.

In story, look for Britt to confide in her mother, noting that that the disease is beginning to overtake her body.

Liesl’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati shared with Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstand now), just how mutter will react to the news.

Gati expressed: “I have to say this is the most painful and profound episode I have filmed in 10 years.”  Kathleen has played the role of Dr, Liesl Obrecht since 2012.

She goes on to say, “Liesl puts her doctors hat on to give hope to herself and to Britta, encouraging her that they are both well-trained doctors and can find a way to help Britta.”

However, that’s not what Britt wants to hear.  She needs her mother, and the support and comfort from her, at this devastating time in her life.

Kathleen shares it’s at that point that Liesl realizes she needs to stop all the medical talk and just be there for her daughter.

So, are you looking forward to the scenes between Britt and Liesl?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Robin Mattson Shares Why She Didn’t Return as GH’s Heather Webber

In late October, General Hospital fans were in for a shock when the character of Heather Webber returned to the canvas, in the form of ex-B&B star, Alley Mills.  Many viewers wondered why the previous Heather, soap vet Robin Mattson, did not return to tape new episodes.

Late last week, Mattson shared via her Facebook page an explantation as to why she was unable and unavailable to reprise her signature role on the ABC daytime drama series.  Robin revealed she is recovering from knee surgery and will soon undergo hip replacement surgery.

Mattson’s full post expressed: “As nice as is to be missed and so many of you have wondered what happened to me, I just want to let you know that I’ve been recovering from my knee surgery and today I’m going to have hip replacement surgery. Thank you all for your love and support! Looking forward to a fast recovery! Love Robin ❤”

Robin is the third actress to play the role of Heather.  She came on to GH back in 1980.  Later, she exited to play Gina on Santa Barbara and Janet on All My Children, and also had stints as B&B’s Sugar, ATWT’s Cheri, DAYS Lee Michaels, and even Delia on Ryan’s Hope.  The actress also continued to play GH’s Heather on and off through 2016.
