38 December 8th, 2014 GH’s Parry Shen Shares Video Farewell Message To Kelly Thiebaud Containing BEST OF BRATT Moments!

Courtesy/ABC

What a testament to Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) that so many of her cast mates, the series head writer, and the fans, have been sending special messages via social media today to the talented actress who wrapped-up her on-screen run on today’s episode of General Hospital! 

But perhaps the most special bond the character of Britt Westbourne shared was with her bestie Brad Cooper played by Parry Shen.

In a very special video send-off and message to his co-star, Parry gives his reactions upon hearing gal pal Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) was going to exit GH, then shares a personal heartfelt message, and then launches into a video compilation of BRATT’s greatest moments!

Parry’s message to Kelly:  “Kel, I’m going to miss you.  These past 18 months have been fantastic. I don’t know if Britt and Brad were supposed to become friends, when she first roped him into doctoring the Hyperemesis gravidarum results, but I am glad it did. I have been doing this long enough to know when something works, it’s really cool and rare.  But I hope to work with you on maybe this show, or maybe on another show, but I am going to miss you. (blows kiss)  You will always be my hag … and here are some of Britt and Brad’s greatest hits!”

And next, Parry put together so many of the “Best Of” moments from the relationship of BRATT!  It’s sweet, funny, and dramatic, just like the relationship these two actors delivered to the GH audience for the last year and a half.

Watch the video from Parry below!  Then, let us know what you thought of it … and what was your favorite scene of Britt and Brad’s!

    Awwww. Loved Bratt. Their relationship made both characters loveable and rootable. Will miss Britt’s relationships with Brad, Spencer & her mother. She can do better than Nick and Patrick IMO.

    Can I just say, awww?!

    That was so sweet and, I appreciate the high definition. What a tribute!

    Can Parry release a single of that song, Brokenhearted, because he sings it so much better than the original (Karmin).

    Soaps need more of these naughty, but fun friendships. I guess the only thing we have left is Theresa and Anne on DAYS and maybe Kevin and Mariah on Y&R.

    I liked The Britch …
    Britt was rather bland..
    Britt and Nikolas were a snore..
    I wish they would have never put out the fire of The Britch ..
    but-
    Kelly is beautiful and a great actress..
    I am sure she will find her happiness and a great career outside of GH..
    We will be seeing Kelly :)

    ((I had a chuckle seeing Kelly signed her message
    ” I love you all – Britch!”

    I liked all the scenes they were in together. I truly felt that I watched two real friends and not two actors. They made everything real. She is such a beauty and I reacted like he did in the beginning of the tape. They should never let her go. She can really act.

    oh jeeez now I’m crying again! between this and Daniel’s demise on Revenge I’m a blubbering, bawlin’, bowl of tears. I LOVE Britt! (Why am I suddenly channeling Spencer?) Sigh..I really, really do like her. Hate that’s she’s leaving. Great, adorable, heartwarming video though. They really were great together! Perry’s got a lot of personality on and off camera!

    I wanted to be on that pier today…loved Brad and Britts friendship!!!

    rebecca1 replied

    First..Parry, not Perry. Argh!!!

    Didn’t you think it was a tad out-of-character for Helena to stand by during the teary farewell? And as if that wasn’t enough…she put her arm consolingly over Dr. O’s. (Maybe tomorrow shel’ll shove her off the pier! lol. At least I’d recognize THAT Helena!) She killed her own daughter…I doubt she’s got a tender spot in her body other than for Nicolas and Spencer! It was a nice touch…but all of a sudden we have a warm-hearted Faison too! Maybe they’re ALL under under some kind of mind control!

    But yeah, jimh…really is a pity to lose this wonderful actress and character…and unfortunately the friendship with Brad that goes along with it. As for Brad, I was if I recall one of the only ones of us “regulars” here that warmed to him rather quickly. I like him; funny how he went futher than Felix in terms of story. And…they ran parallel. Brad and Britt…Felix and Sabrina. I must admit, though I’ve always defended Sabrina…Britt snuck up on me and became one of my favorite characters. She plays sad and defeated, bitchy/bossy/condescending…and comedy. The scene with her dancing while Brad’s singing to Lucas is charmingly adorable…and let’s not forget when she threw Emma’s doll into the fire! LOL! Ahhhh…memories… ;)

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Yeah, both Helena and Faison were too warm hearted to be true…made me wonder whose behind those masks…lol

    What a great tribute to a “love to hate”, yet “you just gotta love” duo. Their friendship became genuine and sweet to watch. I will miss the team. How sweet of Parry to put this together, showing their friendship goes beyond the walls of GH ! I loved Britt and Brad’s friendship, as well as Britt and Nicolas’ romance (even though it was not based on honesty – they made a good couple). I wish Kelly the best of luck, and she will be missed by Parry, and sooooooo many of us I am sure.

    I shall sorely miss these “Wonder Twins” of witty and withering snark…..’Tis truly a special thing when one finds their “sarcastic soulmate!” Maybe for Christmas Dr. O. will take Brad under her wing! That would definitely help to fill the considerable void Britt left for both of these unique characters! I’ve become so accustomed to her playing off Mutta and the labmaster that I’m having a difficult time imagining either one of them without the presence of “The Britch!” (Brad more than Liesl….Obrecht can make talking to a wall amusing, but having said that, what a devastating mother-daughter duo KT and KG comprised!))

    Its not going to be the same without our favorite mutta and dutta duo BRIESL…sigh!!!

    Shay replied

    I hear you, jimh!!!! It simply will not be as much fun without Obrecht and her co-scheming offspring,”Schatzi,”although I am glad that Dr. O. still has Nathan to dote upon….wasn’t she awesome today in her “Mama Bear” mode when she stepped in to treat him? And her little wink at Maxie when she left the room to allow the forbidden couple a few moments of privacy was adorable!!!! That’s what I love about KG….she never ceases to surprise and delight, no matter what sort of material she is presented. By the way, I am highly desirous of a holiday treat in the form of a song from Liesl….about time she belted out another tune, don’t you think????? P.S. Hope you are feeling better after that double bout with the flu!!!!

    really great write-up of the MIA Dr. Leisl and Dr. Britta… and that stealth labMASTer

    Brad the Cad… who continually plants his presence and enervates the audience

    sigh

    at least one can commiserate with

    you know… I really was hoping for Michelle Stafford and Kelly Thiebaud to go rounds with their acting chops… : ala the superlative cousins… Connie/Olivia duo

    Hugs all around, Patrick…and thank you!!! Seems so many of us are left bereft by the bon voyage to our brilliant “Britta!” Her character had so much left to offer, it is a real shame that some accommodations to KT could not have been arranged to keep her on the GH canvas in some capacity with her beloved Mutta, BFF Brad, partner-in-cahoots Spencer, et al! While you are undoubtedly aware that I am no Nina devotee’, I will say that she was much more tolerable when dealing with her newly discovered relatives….who actually ended up being the saner branch of the brood! (Go figure…..) The brief interaction with cousin Britt was indeed priceless, as were those few memorable encounters with Auntie Liesl….it truly pains me to think that “die (vonderfully off-the-vall vacky) familie von Vestbourne” is being torn asunder….first we have “The Britch” departing for cover from Prince Nicky’s charges and now I also sadly suspect that Magda is gone for good, too. Whaaaat????? I really hate when that happens…… :`(

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Yes, lets hear Dr.O sing…maybe ‘ill Be Home For Christmas’ while thinking of Britt and Faison with a tear streaming down her face…Santa appears and makes her wish come true by bringing her to Britt and Santa rips off his mask(lol) and its Ceaser!!! I agree about Nina being more tolerable with her relatives…maybe in more scenes with them she may grow to be somewhat likeable…love Liesl in her ‘mama bear mode’…Helene was suprising, showing a softer side in those scenes with Spenser and co. at the piers…Spenser can get on my nerves but i do enjoy him with Britt…hope that new girl isnt a Britt recast…i want KT to make guest appearances like KM does…id settle for that…and thanks…i am feeling somewhat better…my 17year old im dealing with too…dozens of dr. visits plus 5 at the emergency room since Sept.,…currently shes slowly recovering from a bad viral illness…part of the reason i had left this site for two weeks…Happy Holidays Shay!!!

    I cannot disagree with any of your sentiments, jimh!!!! (Especially those regarding Britt and our dear Dr. O.!) I’m sorry to hear that these past few months have been so trying….hopefully all will be “calm and bright” by the time Christmas arrives! Best wishes to you (and yours) for a happy AND healthy holiday season and new year!

    what an emotional exit. She will truly be missed. I hope the door stays open for her. Some actors just make a difference and she is one. Another one was Connie/Kate. She was a big loss to the show. I wish Kelly luck and I do hope someday she will return.

    I so agree Shirley, she was a big part of the show for me. Loved the friendship with Brad and her romance with Nicholas [the dog]..

    She is so beautiful and talented she probably won’t be back, but we can hope. I still miss Connie too.

    I love Bratt! Parry is a sweetheart and a class act! I know Brad has Lucas, but I still hope they give him a new friend, preferably on the same snark/fun level as Bratt. :) Britt and Brad together were gold! They had the most realistic friendship compared to the other characters and were NEVER boring. I have so many favorite lines from them, but my favorite scene is definitely from the nurse’s ball when Brad was singing at Lucas’s table with Kelly and some random woman jumping up and down in the background. The contrast between the reactions of Lucas, Britt, Brad, and Felix were hysterical in that scene! I am sad to see Britt leave, but I wish Kelly the best of luck! You have to follow your dreams and I hope that she succeeds! At least we still have Brad! :D

    That was a very sweet tribute to Britt (Kelly) from Brad (Parry). Everyone can see why they had such great chemistry on screen…they have a great friendship off screen. Gonna miss Britt. Her last scenes with Spencer broke my heart! Great actress! As an avid GH fan, I wish her the best of luck in the future but would wholeheartedly welcome her back anytime!!!

    I am so impressed by Parry Shen, not only his acting, but now this sweet tribute to his acting partner.

    To me, the friendship between Britt and Brad has been one of the (few) bright spots at GH. I thoroughly enjoyed their interaction and their support of one another. Such friendships are hard to cultivate in real life (in my opinion). These actors made it look so easy, so natural. I was half-expecting a storyline at some point in which Brad was questioning his feelings for Britt and wondering whether he might be bisexual or even straight.

    Hang in there, Parry! I am pulling for you!

    I also liked these two. Wish Kelly all the best, and Parry a few more lines to say. Nice to see they actually enjoyed working with each other. They both are talented actors and they each went from trouble makers to likable characters.
