GH’s Maurice Benard (Sonny) loses another one of his on-screen lady loves. Just how the on-screen exit will come about we will have to wait and see, since Kelly Sullivan announced she is taping till August, but has been written-out of the ABC soap. Then, sadly for viewers who have been fans of the talented Sullivan’s work, some time after that, they will see just how Kelly and her on-screen character, Connie Falconeri will exit the Port Charles canvas.
Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard took to Twitter over the weekend to share his thoughts on Sullvan being writen-off and leaving the series. Maurice tweeted, @KellySullivan_NY “This is all I’m gonna say, when an actress with that kind of ability & talent leaves the show it hurts.”
General Hospital’s head scribe, Ron Carlivati also took to Twitter to send words of gratitude to Kelly for her performances as Kate/Connie, relating, @KellySullivan_NY “Thank you for your unforgettable portrayal of Kate/Connie on
#GH. Can’t wait 2 c what u do next xoxo Ron”
So GH fans, what do you think of Maurice and Ron’s tweets to Kelly? Do you think it’s a mistake letting her go from the ABC soap? Or, do you feel their is nothing more that can be done with the character at this point, so it makes sense to write Sullivan out? Weigh-in!
