Rebecca Herbst Celebrates 10 Years on General Hospital

at . Comments

Rebecca Herbst recently celebrated a decade-long run on General Hospital.

And the actress sound as satisfied and excited as ever about her work:

"It's been a really good run. I was very excited to meet that 10-year mark. [On my anniversary date] I came home to a living room full of balloons and flowers, and my children had written me cards. My husband made sure that it was celebrated," she said.

So, when the actress originated the role of Elizabeth so many years ago, did she ever foresee all the drama and turmoil that her character would go through during the years?

"I never really envisioned it because I had never watched soap operas, so I wasn't really privy to what characters go through and what they're all about," Herbst said. "My sister and I were not allowed to watch them growing up, so the drama was ... well, I knew they were dramatic, but not this dramatic."

Fans of General Hospital have been lucky to watch such a talented performer add to that drama for over a decade now.
