Sadly, Jane Elliot isn’t set to renew her contract as General Hospital’s Tracy Quartermaine when it expires later this year. We want to know what you think, GH fans, about whether Tracy should be recast, and if so, with what actress?
A Tough Decision
Elliot is so beloved by so many GH fans, it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing her. She’s been in the role since 1978, after all, with a few breaks here and there! Only Elliot can do justice to Tracy’s signature chunky pearls and her finger-pointing lectures to loved ones, you say.
Elliot is synonymous with Tracy and her loud, irascible, lovable, loving ways. So, many fans and Soap Cities readers may not want someone else stepping into this role. You may want Tracy to ride off into the soapy sunset along with Elliot?
Perhaps an Even Tougher Decision
Now, some of you may think Tracy is too important to the GH canvas to not be a part of the Port Charles drama. She is the only original Quartermaine from the generation that came on the show as adults left standing. Tracy is great in her own storylines and as a part of others, so you may just not think it’s a good time to write her off the show.
For you fans, we thought of some great actresses to fill the role of Tracy.
Do or Don’t
There may be others of you who don’t have an opinion either way. You may think Tracy has run her course and been through enough. To you, it’s time to retire the character when Elliot retires. You probably feel there are enough other characters on the canvas right now to fill the story needs of our dear GH.
Well, you can all have your say in the poll below!
