Regular folks and celebs alike came out of the woodwork this weekend to offer their opinions on whether Tracy Quartermaine should be recast when Jane Elliot exits the role later this year. Soap icons Colleen Zenk and Robin Strasser are the latest to weigh in.
First the Poll
Last week Soap Cities wrote an article with an accompanying poll asking readers if they thought the role of Tracy Quartermaine on General Hospital should be recast when Jane Elliot leaves the show later this year.
We offered some soap alum names as possible choices should show runners choose to recast the role, including Collen Zenk (Barbara Ryan, As the World Turns) , Robin Strasser (Dorian Lord, One Life to Live), and Susan Flannery (Stephanie Forrester, The Bold and the Beautiful).
GH fans were in an uproar on Twitter, Tweeting, “Heck, no,” in any way possible to get their point home: there is only one Tracy Quartermaine, and that’s Jane Elliot. Their Twitter responses even included profanity, humorous GIFs, and a suggestion to assemble with pitchforks and torches!
I’m Fabulous, You’re Fabulous
This weekend, the great Robin Strasser herself chimed in, saying what she thought of Zenk stepping into Elliot’s shoes. The luminous Zenk, in turn, voiced an opinion as well. Scroll down to see their input!
