So many fans have been commented that they have been very upset by the lack of story given to fan favorite Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber). After Becky was fired and then brought back by the last regime, and then nominated for a Daytime Emmy, she has been back-burnered for some time now. Meanwhile Elizabeth has had one failed attempt after another with relationships with Lucky and Jason, both characters are now off the canvas.
General Hospital’s executive producer, Frank Valentini spoke to Deep Soap’s Sara Bibel about what fans can expect for Liz in the coming months. and especially in the romance department!
Valentini revealed, “I love Liz. I love Becky. She’s fantastic. But something needs to be built. I think that character’s been bounced around. She’s got three different children from three different men. If she’s going to say, “I love you” to somebody, it’s got to be real and it’s got to mean something. She’s not going to jump right into it. That’s not who she is. I think everyone’s forgotten a little bit what makes Liz the character you most identify with and most want to be. Becky’s got the acting chops to pull it off if you go through every step of the relationship.”
The showrunner went on to say that Liz will not be involved with Patrick or A.J. citing: “Liz and Patrick are like brother and sister. It would be creepy if they were together. Liz has a new love interest on the horizon.” When prompted if the new love interests initials were A. J., Valentini said a resounding, “No.”
