General Hospital Spoilers: Fans Express Their Shock Over Kelly Monaco Recasting
On the plus side, at least we will be able to hear Sam now…I won’t need to turn on the captions like I have to with Kelly Monaco (who whispers),” along with, “What?? Was the character of Sam doing anything so monumental that we couldn’t have done without her at all for two weeks?
(Not that anyone would remember anyway.) I’d rather they give the air time to someone we haven’t seen enough of .. such as Lucas, whose entire life has been thrown into turmoil, mostly with him off-screen.”
Another fan said, “I really like LH, I hope Kelly is okay. It will be fun to see someone else in the role who will hopefully bring more energy and life to the part until Kelly’s return. Looking forward to seeing LH on my screen again and next to Burton.”
With that said, Kelly herself has not made any comments about the situation, however, her mother Carmina did clarify the casting rumors and said that this is only temporary and that her daughter will be back in no time. We will definitely update you with all of the latest details as they come in.
