General Hospital Spoilers – Hard To Say Goodbye
Before her exit, the actress admitted that it’ll be hard for her to leave the soap. “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,” she said.
“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,” Elliot continued.
Another Quartermaine, Brook Lynn Ashton (Amanda Setton), returned to the canvas this week and it seems like viewers will see more of her for quite a while. Having said that, Tracy’s return would make things in Port Charles more interesting. With Thanksgiving around the corner, will Tracy show up just in time for the party this year?
The actress or the show has not confirmed the news yet but Wally Kurth recently told Digest, “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have my mother back! It’s wonderful for the Quartermaines, wonderful for GENERAL HOSPITAL!”
