Kelly Thiebaud is confirmed to be joining Station 19

Soap Hub has reported that Kelly Thiebaud who portrays Dr. Britt Westborne on General Hospital is returning to her role as Eva Vasquez on Station 19. The spoiler reveals there are "printed reports" that the Daytime Emmy-winner will be exiting the ABC sudser in November to go back to the primetime drama.

Britt was diagnosed with Huntington's disease for which there is no cure and right now she is not displaying any symptoms. If the character dies it will mean that Liesel Obrecht (Kathlene Gati) will have lost both of her children. Her son and Britt's half-brother Nathan West (Ryan Peavy) was shot and killed by Ceasar Faison (Anders Hovas) on February 9, 2018.

Britt Westbourne might succumb to Huntington's disease or Selina Wu

When Britt found out she had the Huntington's marker some General Hospital fans suspected that her days were numbered but after her love interest Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) died the disease was placed in the background. Britt currently is in the middle of a tug of war between Cody Bell (Josh Kelly)and Damian Spinelli ( Bradford Anderson) and fans are not certain what is really going on.

There is also the possibility that mob boss Selina Wu ( Lydia Look) might have Britt disappear because she keeps interfering in the plans Wu has for her nephew Brad Cooper (Parry Shen). Selina is blackmailing Britt into silence by holding over her head some actions she took in 2016 while on the rn with Faison but things could always change.

Dr. Westborne and Kelly Thiebaud have had challenges

Thiebaud has had a difficult time with irate General Hospital fans who have bullied her online. She was criticized for wearing her hair in bangs during COVID and negatively compared to Kelly Monaco whose character Sam McCall was her onscreen rival for Jason's affections. The actress clapped back by saying she was only doing her job and told the haters to stop. The actress also dealt with a false COVID test that kept her off GH for 10 days but she later actually did have the coronavirus.

Britt came to Port Charles in 2012 and the character has come a long way from breaking up relationships, switching hospital records, stealing fertilized eggs, and having herself implanted with someone else's baby. Dr. Wesboourne is now the co-CEO of General Hospital along with Dr. Terry Randolph (Cassandra James) and she has gained respect from some of those who previously disliked her.

Eva will return with a bang to Station 19

On Station 19, Eva is the widow of Rigo Vasquez (Rigo Sanchez) who was in season 3. Eva began an affair with her husband's best friend Jack Gibson ( Greg Damon) so things will be interesting upon her return. ABC has confirmed Thiebaud's return to primetime with a teaser about her character. "Misery loves company and Eva finds solace with someone from her past".

Congrats to Kelly Thiebaud on a stellar performance on General Hospital as Britt and best of luck on her return to Station 19 as Eva. Fans should be on the lookout for updates related to how Britt will depart Port Charles and what the widow Vasquez will be up to on the prime-time drama.
