Well, doesn't look like GH will give Becky her own stand alone show which is tradition so Twitter is going to try to get #Becky25 trending. I'd like to do a little blog for her as well. I'm at a meeting today from 2-4 so this will be your space!
This blog is in no way comprehensive in it's history of Elizabeth Imogene Webber or of Becky Herbst. These are just the parts that are special to me!
*Note: Becky does NOT age. Period.
August 1, 1997: Elizabeth arrived on Grandma Audrey's doorstep smoking a cigg and being mouthy to her older sister, Sarah. Yes, back in the day, you COULD smoke on soaps!! Loved her from the start. She was no where the goodie-two shoes she morphed into. Sarah was the 'golden child" and Liz the "black sheep".
Yes, I'm an OG L&L 2 fan!! . Loved JJ and Becky in the roles. They just seemed to have 'it'. Of course, GH "killed" Lucky in great dramatic fashion only to bring him back as
Helena's Robot (played by Jacob Young 2000-2003 ) not my fave time for these two!! I missed JJ and the sparks that flew.
Greg Vaughn took over the role in 2003 all the way to 2009. I didn't mind this reincarnation but I still did miss the JJ BH magic.
Of course, you can't really talk about Elizabeth without mentioning Jason...because Liason was a huge force on the show for many years. They share a son Jake and have been through it all.
One also can't talk about Elizabeth without mentioning her rape in 1998. Poignant and shattering, it was an excellent storyline that was eventually the catalyst for Luke confessing the rape of Lucky's mother so long ago.
She painted the box car when Lucky was living in it (don't ask LOL)
She painted the wind when Jason took her on a motorcycle ride
Slept with Zander Smith and had his baby, Cameron
Had a baby with Jason, Jake
Had a baby with Lucky, Aiden
Miscarried Ric's baby
DID YOU KNOW? Becky was let go From GH in 2011 and a huge backlash/fan outcry had her reinstated to the show.
Becky appeared in a Goo-Goo dolls video "Naked" in 1995
She won "Best Younger Actress" in 1998 for Soap Opera Digest
Was nominated for a Daytime Emmy as Best Younger actor in 2000
Lucky and Liz's catch phrase was: Permanent Lock
Material object: Subway Token
Becky Fans First referred to themselves as "The Pearls" for years
Liz is one of the very few ladies that was never seduced by Sonny Corinthos. Super plus in my book!
Becky is married in real life to Michael Saucedo who played Juan Santiago on GH From 1999-2001 /various cameos. Together, they have four children (!!!)
Much has been written about and discussed regarding Becky's lack of airtime over the years. She was featured heavily when "Jason" returned (Billy Warlock) but after that, really hasn't had the airtime she deserves. Recently she was involved in the Peter murder storyline but that was directed to other characters. We thought she was going to have DID when it was found out that it was her that kept doing damage to herself. That took a left turn and Elizabeth ended up in Shadybrook for (mostly) a nervous-breakdown and sleeping pill misuse. The only story on the horizon may be one involving her parents (Jeff/Caroline Webber) but I'm not getting my hopes up.
The OG Fab Four with Tyler Christopher, Amber Tamlyn, Becky and Jonathan Jackson. Hang out ?? Kelly's .
AGAIN, CONGRATS To Becky for 25 great years on GH and thank you for the entertainment !
