ABC Soaps in Depth is reporting today that General Hospital’s Leslie Charleson (Monica Quartermaine), who has been nominated for four Daytime Emmy Awards, but who has been relegated to back burner for the last several years has been taken off contract. This means, however, that Charleson has been bumped to recurring status by the series. An ABC rep could not comment on the contract status as that is their policy.
Charleson has been on the ABC sudser for over three decades. Monica’s on-screen husband, Alan Quartermaine, played by Stuart Damon, was killed off the series back in 2007, and since then her air time has dwindled.
