ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting Natalia Livingston will be saying goodbye to the citizens the fictional town of Port Charles, as she is leaving General Hospital. No word on when the actress will depart her role as Rebecca.
Poor Natalia. This return was completely botched.
I'm glad that Rebecca is leaving the canvas. The character was just stupid from the start. They should've never killed Emily and left it open for her too return. Why did they even bring NL back if they were going to scrap the character? But w/e. I should not be surprised and I definitely wouldn't be surprised if I came back on here later on to see something like Amber Tamblyn is returning to the role of Emily. I am just not shocked when it comes to GH anymore.
Is any one really surprise ??
The all comeback was stupid!
They should have made her Emily have Diego and Helena made a deal that he will "kill her" and than Helena will taker her and brian wash her ....
But they went with Rebecca , her twin sister that Page didn't tell Monica before she died , after the strong bond between them .................
She was annoying , she didn't click with anyone not even TC ........
that was written the day JJ was back and my guess is that NF Ethan will be next, even though I like him more today after the episode but he will go ......
Please keep Jason cock !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm happy that the character of Rebecca will be no more, but I feel sorry for Natalia. Those idiots could have easily salvaged things by making her Emily. I see Natalia as the new Mac on Y&R or Steffy on B&B...
Jamey, we need a Wishful Casting, STAT!
I'm not sad to see her go and I'm really not that sad that she wasn't Emily either. Her version of Emily was boring. I just think it's a shame they had to trash Emily's birth mom.
so annoyed as this only means more liz...blech
so many possibilities, but obviously if they can't figure out what to do with sjb...
i agree season, essentially the only thing this story did was destroy paige. and now there will be even less opportunity to see the q's
I have an even better idea...
I would bring Emily back from the dead in the form of Amber Tablyn. If they could get Johnathan Jackson back, I'm pretty sure Amber wouldn't be hard.
Blackjack as usual you are right on all counts :
But where one doppleganger exits, Emily Peterson, played by Stacy Haiduk enters...
Oh and in other news, Sarah Brown is out as Claudia...
And if you missed it, Jerry Douglas is out as Alistar Wallingford....
HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO SAY IT?!
Blackjack you are right she did bring the Q's more
I wonder what will be about the Q'S
yes The Spencers are good and they are a core family but also the Q's
Fans love them also if they want to bring the old fans bring Q;s more .........
They can do that with Michael and also Jason he is a Q and I want to see him more with Monica and Edward and Tracy ...........
I remember after the Carnival and Edward was very ill Jason did talk about him and he did visit him I wish they will have Jason talking with edward , I want to see them getting closer ..
Amber Tamblyn just had two primetime shows, yes the last one failed, but she won a golden globe for Joan of Arcadia. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was a HUGELY popular movie as was the sequel and she had a hit with Grunge 2 as well, not Sisterhood big, but still bigger I think than Tuck Everlasting. I think she is currently in the latest Michael Douglas film and she has a film coming up with Amy Poehler if I am not mistaken. THe only way she comes back to GH would be super short term - think 3 day JF not six month JJ. JMHO
LOL Discodan -- what sucks more dopplingers, characters that return from the dead multiple times, or returning characters lurking for months and the camera just showing us the hand or the back of the head or the foot and then suddenly SURPRISE (or in most cases no surprise)
I just hope she's revealed to be Emily before she leaves. At least it'll leave the door open for her (or anyone) to come back as Emily later on. She can tell off Nik, slap Liz, have a happy reunion with the Qs and then go off and finish medical school or whatever.
thanks all. check back later.
have fun discussing...
i'd totally go for that daisy!
Not a moment too soon...hip hip hooray!
I wish they had turned her back to Emily. Would have meant more Monica and Edward, and I always loved the way Jason was so fond of her. She was the only family he really associated with, except for Michael.
I would rather see the phoenix rise til the cows come home, than watch Nikolas romance his ex-wife's sister. Speaking of which, would someone punch JR Chandler in the ovary for marrying the walking dead...
Too bad, I really like NL; she should've returned as Emily, this farcical Rebecca mess has been so ill-conceived and poorly executed. Also too bad because the amazing Claire Coffee/Nadine Crowell was axed to facilitate NL's return.
Like Natalia but Rebecca was such a dud from the start. I wonder if she'll "disappear" like Nadine.......OR she'll take Ethan with her!!!
I think it was stupid casting without thinking
They never meant her to be Emily ......
If they would haver her has Emily it would have been so good ..
She was like the only family member form the Q's that Jason was close to more than Monica , Michael is from Sonny and Carly side more ....
ANd Jason and Emily had such a wonderful brother sister connection that I miss
Thank God Useless character That trashed a good charcter, Page Bowen
Good riddance! The only benefit to having "Rebecca" onscreen was that I got to keep my FF'ing finger in shape.
I've never been a fan of hers, so the sooner she leaves the better. She wasn't a good actress when she played Emily and she obviously didn't take any acting classes before she came back as Rebecca. Basically, she's a terrible actress. And the fact that the character of Rebecca was poorly conceived from beginning to end didn't help.
the only thing worse than a guza mess is a guza cleanup; killing emily was a mistake, bringing NL back as Rebecca was a disaster-as for the hope that her departure will make sense, i present exhibit a-sjb's departure-on a positive note was everyone in or near tears for JJ's convo with Laura today? How great would have been to hear Laura's side, they could have brought Genie in for one day.
So, meh! I agree with all of you about Rebecca and about how she should have been or should be made Emily. But since I'm not excited by NL in any way I don't really feel like I have a pony in this show.
BUT, (and please forgive me for not waiting to post this in the appropriate thread), HOW AWESOME WAS JONATHAN JACKSON TODAY?? I had only seen him on youtube clips that many of you kindly pointed me to, but is acting prowess and his freaking HOT chemistry with Liz are undeniable!! I can see what many of you are saying now about JJ and why you were so happy to have him return! I just laughed when Liz had to act like she cared about Nik after watching her with new-old-Lucky. There's no way that's believable now.
BTW, I don't think NL was terrible as Emily, in retrospect Emily may have been closer to who she is but she was natural and right as Emily, not great but certainly solid.
Maybe she wasn't well liked online, but Natalia was and is one of the sweetest actors I ever had the privlege to meet, and once again this show did a terrible job trying to salvage something that never needed salvaging in the first place. As far as I'm concerned, I'm done with GH. Wanting Emily back and wanting a happy ending for Nikolas and Emily was the only reason I was hanging on, and since once again my viewership has been screwed, GH can no longer count on my loyalty. I realize it doesn't make a big difference in the grand scheme of things, but I've had enough with this show. Only OLTL has my viewership now.
Beth I didnt get a chance to meet her at GHFCW, but that was in part due to the long line. I did get to witness her interactions with the fans and she did seem very gracious.
I would also agree that they did a terrible job salvaging what didnt need to be salvaged from jump. They should have brought her back as Emily or even as Emily brainwashed to believe she was Rebecca (with the real Rebecca switched in by Helena the night of the Black and White Ball, only to have her plan inadvertently thwarted by Diego.)
