GH Star Jane Elliot Incites Passionate Response on Twitter!

Jane Elliott, who plays Tracy Quartermaine on General Hospital.

Tell us how you really feel, Jane Elliot fans! We’re loving the response to our poll on the popular, soon-to-retire General Hospital star.

A Poll Ignites a Firestorm

Earlier this week Soap Cities posted an article with a poll asking readers if Jane Elliot’s Tracy Quartermaine should be recast when the daytime icon leaves the show later this year. As always, we Tweeted a link to the article. We also included the question, “Should Tracy Quartermaine be recast? If so, with what actress?”

Within minutes, Twitter followers were letting us know how they feel, and making it very, very clear: No one can play Tracy except the incomparable Jane Elliot! See our Tweet and some of the responses below! Be forewarned: some of the answers contain profanity.

Our favorite idea is not recasting the role, but having Jane Elliot come back to visit from time to time as Tracy, which Vicki Borken suggested.

    Hate to see you leave. Been watching the show since 1965. Won’t be the same. Enjoy retirement ,Do you think you’ll go to Amsterdam to see Tony Geary.
