Finally what many fans have waited for, a chance to hear directly from Rebecca Herbst on what went down behind-the-scenes a few months ago at General Hospital when the powers-that-be told the talented actress she had been let-go as Elizabeth Webber. Of course later what transpired was an amazing fan backlash which seemed to have saved Herbst’s job!
In the new issue of ABC Soaps In Depth, Herbst told the publication on the firing, “It was surreal,” she recalls of that fateful Friday meeting with the show’s executives in which she was told the news. “I didn’t see it coming.” Elizabeth was the odd woman out in three romantic triangles, and is in the middle of a paternity issue between two brothers which is why the firing was a shocker to her. ”That’s why it did take me by surprise,” she says with a sigh.
Well, Rebecca is front and center on GH starting today with the beginning of the Jake hit and run, and the aftermath! Stay tuned.
