Where is Leslie Charleson?

Actress Leslie Charleson celebrates 45 years of portraying Monica Quartermaine on General Hospital in August. The soap vet has not been on screen since February and the show did not acknowledge her milestone. Rebecca Herbst who portrays Liz Weber hit the 25-year milestone during the same month with much fanfare and an increased amount of screentime.

Several articles were published that implied Charleson had given recent interviews but when you read them you realize they have been recycled and stamped with a new date. The rumor mill suggested the actress as going to retire after her anniversary date but no one has heard a word from the soap vet. Monica has only been mentioned once or twice during this past year and it's as if she does not exist.

Maurice Benard interviews Leslie Charleson

If Charleson is unable to continue in the role why don't they use a recast as they have in the past? Patty McCormick and Holly Kaplan both did great in the role so if Charleson was unable to return to General Hospital why was not one of these actresses given the role. Frank Valentini the executive producer has not addressed this issue and none of the General Hospital cast has even mentioned Charleson and fans want to know what is going on.

Leslie Charleson looked great in her interview with Maurice Benard in March on his Vlog State of Mind. This is the last time the actress has been seen and General Hospital fans desire to know what s going on with the popular actress.
