General Hospital seems to be doing some restructuring of its large cast of characters. For a while now, there have been rumors that William deVry, who plays the role of Julian Jerome, is on his way out. Now another huge name has been added to the list of potential departures.
New rumors indicate that Emme Rylan is getting the boot as well. She slipped into the role of Lulu Spencer in 2013 and has become well-loved by viewers. Though the soap hasn’t yet confirmed the news, the actress appeared to give a major hint that this is true.
In an Instagram post made on Monday, Rylan revealed that she had a hard day. She indicated that a family hug was needed and that’s exactly what was shown in the sweet snapshot. The General Hospital star was surrounded by her loved ones. Her partner, Don Money, and their three kids — Jackson, Levi, and Dakota — were all seen embracing Rylan as she knelt in the middle and they surrounded her. Rylan appeared to have a sad look on her face as she was comforted by her family.
The unconfirmed rumors broke on Monday, as The Inquisitr previously detailed. It may not have been a big surprise for fans to see William deVry’s name come up once again, but they seemed shocked to learn that Rylan was supposedly getting the ax.
Her Instagram followers had a lot to say about her rumored departure from the ABC soap.
“I’m so sorry. GH is making a big mistake letting you go,” one fan remarked.
“This makes zero sense. Say it isn’t so,” another viewer wrote.
“We will fight for you Emme! We love you and will follow you no matter where you go next,” stated a third GH fan.
General Hospital fans are completely confused about what will happen since Rylan is currently embroiled in a major storyline. The love triangle with Lulu, her ex-husband — Dante Falconeri — and her current guy — Dustin Phillips — has just begun and viewers were looking forward to seeing what develops between them.
Genie Francis, Rylan’s TV mom, seemed to hint in a tweet earlier this month that she was heading back to the set to begin filming in L.A. Her longtime character, Laura Spencer Collins, has been out of town for weeks now, and it looks like her daughter may not be there when she gets back, or will leave shortly after.
November sweeps are coming up quickly on General Hospital and things may not be the same when all is said and done. Lulu’s departure from Port Charles will not be taken lightly by those who love her.
