Our Performers of the Week are General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst & William Lipton!
Becky & William delivered powerful, heart-breaking performances that were leaps and bounds above everything else we saw this week. Elizabeth was devastated when Franco died in her arms from his gunshot wound. Not only was she dealing with the emotional fallout of the death and thinking that Jason had been the one to kill Franco, but then she had the difficult task of telling her children. Cameron, who has really bonded with his stepfather, took the news especially hard. As longtime viewers of this soap, we are so grateful for the opportunity to see Rebecca Herbst shine again like we know she can. And William Lipton...wow! He is such a talented human being. GH is lucky to have him.
