I'm hoping that Julie would at least be there for GH's 50th anniversary- which is coinciding with the Nurses' Ball. But I'm not too sure about that because from other actors' tweets, there's been lots of fittings in gowns, costumes, etc. so I'm doubting it now. Her contract was up in November but stayed an extra 3 months. Why not stay for another extra month to be part of the anniversary special? (That could be said for Steve Burton, who was on the show for 22 years but left last October) I really thought that Julie was a perfect fit as Luke and Laura's kid- she looked like Laura but had Luke's spunk. It'll be tough for a recast to fill those shoes that Julie molded as it usually is, especially with a legacy character.
Of course I wish Julie luck but I just feel it's bad timing. Her TV mother (Genie Francis- Laura Spencer) just came back, as well as her TV aunt (Jackie Zeman- Bobbie Spencer) and the 50th anniversary. Again, couldn't she hold it for an extra month? Guess not.
This is why I don't like putting actor's names on Labels/tags on the bottom of this post-entry! Actors leave but characters stay (or they leave with them) so it's hardly good use!
