Jane Elliot Set to Leave General Hospital

This might be currently the worst kept secret in soaps. Veteran General Hospital actress Jane Elliot has informed her bosses at the ABC serial and multiple costars that she won't be re-signing when her contract expires this spring.

Elliot has played ruthless-yet-hilarious snob Tracy Quartermaine on GH on and off since 1978. She even briefly took the character to the short-lived Loving spinoff, The City. The prolific actress also played Linda Skerba on A Flame In The Wind (1965), adulterous Judy Trent on Knots Landing (1980-81), unstable Carrie Todd on Guiding Light (1981-82), money-grubbing Cynthia Chandler on All My Children (1984-86) and cougar Anjelica Deveraux on Days of Our Lives (1987-89).

Last April, entertainment journalist Michael Logan first broached the subject of retirement with Elliot in an interview for TV Insider. Here's an excerpt:

"Are you still threatening to retire?

I’m still anxiously awaiting it. It will be very hard to leave GH. There are people in that building who have been a part of my life for 38 years and I will miss them dearly. But I want to keep growing, learning new things, living in new places, in order to expand my mind. Thank God for soap operas, I have raised two kids who are now grown and on their own. This has been the best job possible for any actor who is a mom.

And you wouldn’t miss acting?

No. I do not have that hunger. I have logged enough man hours in front of the camera that I can actually retire with a pension from my union, something I am extremely proud of. But, as far as acting goes, I am full. I am satiated."

In recent months, Elliot has been heavy in story with Michael Easton and Rebecca Budig on GH. Proving the old trick of having a beloved character invest in newcomers —as a way to ingratiate them to the audience — still works, Tracy's affection for Dr. Hamilton Finn (Easton's umpteenth GH character) and Budig's reformed schemer Hayden Barnes helped the couple become popular with fans. Wouldn't it be incredible if GH executive producer Frank Valentini some how managed to change Elliot's mind?

Not surprised but I will miss her. I'm guessing since she is the only one that really interacts with Monica we wont be seeing Leslie Charleson much anymore either (not that we see her much now). I'm happy she seems ready to go and hopefully she will go do something fabulous with her free time.

I was surprised a little...She has the ultimate retirement job, not having to be on anymore than she is. I'm sure they would allow her to take off for half a year like they did Tony if she wanted to. But I totally get her wanting to have the freedom.

Jane E certainly deserves to retire after 38 years in front of the camera, although I know she will be missed. Wishing her much happiness and fulfillment in her retirement.

I'm not surprised about Jane retiring, but will miss her. She's been acting for 6 decades, which is an amazing run, for anyone in such an unstable career. At least she is going out on her own terms, (not due to a clueless TPTB, cancellation, or health problems.)

Kirsten Storms Leaving General Hospital–AGAIN!


Last year Kirsten Storms shocked the soap world when she left General Hospital soon after announcing her divorce.

She eventually revealed that she left due to stress-induced skin issues that were making it hard to work, even with heavy makeup. According to Soaps In Depth, Storms has chosen to leave the show again, although there’s no official change in her contract status.

A rep for the soap said that Storms has chosen to take more time off. This break seems to be coinciding with Ryan Paevey’s time off to shoot a movie, so we might not see Nathan and Maxie for a while as they enjoy marital bliss.

Last year, former Days of Our Lives actress Molly Burnett took over the role while Storms was away, and in 2011, another ex-DAYS actress, Jen Lilley, played Maxie when Storms left for health reasons.

I like Kirsten but I dont mind a break from Maxie and Nathan. Neither of them have had a real s/l in quite awhile. They can take a long extended honeymoon or something. The cast is so bloated at this point I dont think I'll even miss them. I do hope she is ok though, she seems to have had alot of health issues over the last several years.
