Nothing more evil than a woman on crutches? You bet! Especially if that woman is General Hospital’s evil Dr. Britt! According to Soap Opera Digest, actress Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) will be on-screen with crutches for a while beginning on today’s episode after breaking her femur in real life!
But where there is an unexpected injury to a soap star, leave it to the creatives behind-the-scenes to come up with something that works in story! GH’s head writer Ron Carlivati revealed to SOD, “We had to write in the crutches and we said that she fell in the parking lot, but we sort of hinted that maybe Frisco may possibly have had something to do with it as a warning to leave his daughter. We had a little fun with that. She may be hobbling along there for a while. It sort of reminds me of Sigourney Weaver in Working Girl. It makes her all the more villainous to be on crutches!”
So GH fans, let us know when you watch upcoming episodes if Britch on crutches is more villainess than just everyday evil Britch?
