General Hospital fans know that some characters have been around for a long time. Take a look at the lovely Elizabeth. She showed up in Port Charles sometime back in the late 1990s (1997 to be precise) and she’s been in the role ever since. She’s done her job to keep the people in this city safe and alive as a nurse, and we love her. She’s an original character, and we love to get to know more about the lovely Rebecca Herbst, who plays Liz.
She’s A California Girl
She was born and raised in California. She was born in 1977 in Encino. She was raised by her mother and father, and she also has a sister. She is the youngest child in the family, but she’s not the one who had to learn everything the hard way. That job always belongs to the oldest siblings.
She’s A Figure Skater
As a child, she was a wonderful competitive figure skater. She did the job until she was around 16. She liked to skate, but it appears that it was not her true passion. She wanted to pursue acting more than going to the Olympics or any other skating competition in the world. She might miss it, but she’s found her calling.
She’s Always Wanted to Act
She’s not someone who fell into the role or decided to do it on a whim. She decided at a very young age she was ready to be a star, and she began acting when she was only 6. She was just a child, but she was a child who knew she was ready to be a television star. We’d like to think she was clearly a wise child to know that this was her calling and to actually go for it at such a young age.
She’s A Guest Star Professional
She spent her childhood guest-starring on shows that will blow your mind. She also spent her teen years and more doing the same. She’s been on shows like 90210, Boy Meets World, Sister Sister, Step by Step, and more. She was a huge fan of television growing up, so it makes sense.
She’s A Music Video Star
Do you remember the Goo Goo Dolls? You do, and you know it. She was part of their success when she starred in the video for “Naked,” which we know you remember. They were huge in the 90s, and we know you’re flashing back right now to some of the best times of your life.
She Dated A CoStar
Not only did she date a costar, she dated a famous costar. You know him now from his role on The Bold and the Beautiful as the new Thorne, but Ingo Rademacher was once Jax, and they dated for a while back when she first started playing the role of Liz in the late 90s. It clearly didn’t work out for them, thought.
She’s Married to A Former CoStar
She likes the men she works with. She married actor Michael Saucedo back in 2001. He was her costar when he played Juan Santiago. They were together and married in less than a year-and-a-half since she was engaged to another man on December 30, 1999 and somehow ended that, met her husband, got engaged, and married in under 18 months.
She’s A Mother of Three
She has two sons and a daughter, all with her husband. Her sons are Ethan and Emerson, and her daughter is Ella. She likes the E names, and she should considering she has one herself. It’s popular in many households, and even the stars are not immune to it.
She’s A Designer
Did you know she not only designs clothes herself, she actually designs most of her Emmy gowns? That’s right. She’s not one to wear someone else to major events. She wears her own designs, and we are so beyond impressed by her and her ability to do that.
She’s part of many foundations and charitable causes, and we appreciate that about her. She’s a woman who knows what she wants, and she goes after that. She’s impressive, and we like her for that stuff. It makes us happy.
