Kelly Sullivan is Out at 'General Hospital'

By June 27, 2013

Follow me on:


Kelly Sullivan, Kate/Connie, has been let go from General Hospital.

No word on whether the role will be recast, or Sullivan's last air date.

Sullivan joined the cast in 2011, replacing Megan Ward in the role.

We wish her nothing but success.

Can’t say I’m sorry; I never warmed up to her as Kate.

(2) Annette says:

Such a shame.

Ever since they merged the alters Kelly has been underused.

I wish they would crack her back up again as she puts more passion and angst into a scene than anyone!

I haven’t watched in a week as I have company… Are Sonny and Olivia getting together? That would certainly be impetus for her to sever the alter ties. Nice opportunity there. She could crack into three. Oh, how I miss Todd Manning who could wax poetic on the trials and tribulations of ‘alterdom’.


I really WILL miss Connie AND Kate and KONNIE (as I call her now).

I think she’s a great actress and showed her talent with the whole Kate/Connie storyline. I wish her the best in her next endeavors.

ANNETTE: Who knows what the writer’s are up to with this. How about they need to get rid of some of the people that need to go such as Britch and Taylor. I am so disappointed that we are still doing the cat and mouse thing with her baby being Patrick’s and we ALL know it’s not. Really getting old fast……….

Agreed! I have a long list of people that need to take a short walk off of Pier 52 and it starts with the Britch!

The ONLY thing I’ve heard Taylor say that didn’t sound like nails on a chalkboard was when she asked/accused the Britch of ‘trying to get between me and my brother’ and that was really just an aside – barely noticeable.

I’m still hoping that after Silas saves Danny (medically) he will turn (back) into Caleb and take out a few of the nasties.

I am so glad to hear this news. She could never pull off the split personality thing like jessica did. I would like to see more of felicia, mac, anna, duke, monica ,lucy, laura, scotty, luke and tracy than just one day a week. Bring back Bobbie also. We are seeing too much of sonny’s family and women again. they should also get rid of sabrina, patrick has turned her into a tramp.

Glad Connie going…………………..
To much always on Sunny and tired of him!
Do not like Todd as Franco.
Never like the OLTL stars coming to G.H.
Tired of Brit and her baby to be.
We are not stupid another DNA can be taken
when baby is born. Always at G.H. someone
is fooling around in the lab!
Like Nicholas back ………..but for how long?
Robin needs to come back wiht her Dad Robert,
have feeling Luke will find him, but he going on
leave again, anyway looks that way……………….
Almost getting tired of G.H. too, and been watching since the
early 1980s Bad writing………………….Inamaria

I am VERY sorry to see Connie go. I loved her playing Kate. She showed such passion and feelings. I liked her better than Olivia (whom I also like) and can’t believe they let one go and kept the other. It just saddens me how they “run the show”. I am very sad that Kate is going.

The producers are terrible they are changing character all the time don’t get know them!! it sucks now the story are never ending QUE PASA??

(11) Tammy says:

Another good one is let go…I liked Kate/Connie..They should’ve got rid of Olivia,she’s a useless character.So now her and Sonny will hook up again..this show is so predictable.If they push a storyline for Kiki and Michael that just shows you how pathetic this show is getting. Morgan really needs to go,his ego is sickening. Franco never should’ve been brought back. In fact all the OLTL characters never should’ve came back as these new characters Such stupid story lines with them. Maybe ABC should bring back OLTL and can GH once and for all.

I always try not to be a catalyst in someone potentially losing their job, but the characters of Brit and Taylor could take a long walk off the pier and I wouldn’t shed a tear…nor would anyone in PC, I think. I’m just not sure why they keep those characters. I understand characters you love to hate. I don’t love to hate them–they’re completely irredeemable and I just hate them. The actresses are perfectly lovely, but those characters need to go–the sooner the better.

I’m not sure if they will recast Connie/Kate, but I’m it saddens me that they would let HER go and keep crappy characters.

(13) Angela says:

I think I like the idea of Sonny and Olivia – she’s one of the only ladies on the show that can handle his lifestyle and they have always had a connection. I REALLY like Sonny. Not really warming up to Morgan and the Michael and KiKi thing, really. I agree with everyone, Britch and Taylor need to go – Please keep Nikolas, OMG, preferably without a shirt at all times!!! LOL. Like the storyline with Ava and the Jerome’s and looking forward to seeing how it shakes out. Absolutely do not like AJ with Liz – no chemistry.

(14) Reta says:

A few things……..

KATE/CONNIE: She could go or stay. If she stays she was better suited to GH when she was CEO of Crimson.

SONNY: In my opinion, Sonny and Carly are a match made in heaven. They can pair him with anyone they want but they will not have the chemistry he and Carly have. As with Luke and Laura–just sayin’

PATRICK/SABRINA: I am excited that they have not allowed Britch’s antics to interfere as much. HOWEVER, when the baby comes that will be a problem UNLESS they decide to kill off Britch which I am totally ok with. Would love for Robin to come back but KM is on to other things. As a result, we are stuck with whatever this mess is with Patrick. I don’t know anyone (especially a medical professional) who would go to this level of stupid for a man. Ridiculous really.

Love the new AJ but forget about a relationship with your brother’s ex–eeewww

(15) Judy in South Carolina says:

I am not sorry to see the character of Kate/Connie go but I think Kelly is a fine actress. As some others have posted, I never warmed up to her in the role of Kate.

I HATE, hate, HATE that the writers married Scott and Laura — how BORING! Everyone knows Luke and Laura belong together. Including Luke and Laura LOL! But as long as Genie stays I guess there is always hope.

I liked Sabrina better before her “makeover”. I mean those glasses had to go but her personality now is so different that she no longer seems like someone Patrick would be attracted to. And of course I am also on the get rid of Britt bandwagon but I DO sort of like Taylor. Port Chuck needs a character you love to hate. LOL I just don’t think that T.J. is worth fighting over, Molly!

I would like to see Nicholas with Liz — she has NO chemistry with AJ. And DEFINITELY agree with the character of Morgan — do not like him at ALL!!!!

(16) Sisjoann says:

Of course they would let her go but keep Tood/Franco and no that Eva that I did not like in any of her other soaps. Come on get on the wagon guys and leave her alone. I also do not like that Morgan, he is like a little baby. And what Mom would let her son stay in psycho house with his girl friend. Be real!

July 2, 2013 at 11:22 am
(17) Sisjoann says:

The baby that Britt is carrying is Dante and Lulu’s which will make everything all good for Maxie. That storyline was so dumb. You cannot have a miscarriage and in a minute get pregnant. Come on! I cannot believe all those who watch all the time would not figure that out.
These lab results being switched is so old. Get a new idea. Send Felix’s sister for a hike and take TJ with her. Molly is way too smart for him. Oh well.

(18) Carolyn says:

I wanted to reply to Julie’s comment and say I completely agree. I don’t understand how they could get rid of an actress the caliber of Kelly Sullivan and keep Britt. She isn’t even convincing as a doctor and that entire story is stupid. I never liked Britt from the first day she was on the show. As for Taylor, they always seem to have a snarky juvenile in these summer story lines but Britt bonding with her is bizarre. Like you, Julie, I wish they would get rid of both Britt and Taylor and keep Kelly Sullivan. I would be thrilled if that happened.

Very sorry to hear that Kelly Sullivan is leaving GH. I think she is a terrific actress. She was powerful with her split personalities. The writers could think of some new story line for her. I wish her the best, but wish she was staying.

(21) Carolyn says:

I wanted to add to my previous comment. Not only is it a bad decision to let Kelly Sullivan go but it also indicates the show is going down hill. When quality actors are gone and substandard performers like Britt and Taylor are kept, it’s very sad and could mean that GH is on borrowed time. The current ratings are down and this is why.

July 2, 2013 at 2:29 pm
(22) Marilyn says:

I just had a thought. I think the baby is Patricks and Robins. Britch got a text from her mother saying “didn’t I tell you it would be OK?” Robin is still being held captive by Brit”s mother, so she could easily be implanted with an egg from Robin. But, how would they get Patrick’s sperm? Haven’t figured that out.

(23) Barb says:

I have to admit… I love the Patrick/Robin theory, but I do doubt it. Love it, though!

(24) Phyllis says:

WHY????? She is a great actress in the show!!!

July 2, 2013 at 8:25 pm
(25) Becki says:

I’m sorry to hear Kelly is leaving. Like many, I didn’t enjoy her as Kate, but loved me some Connie. I even like the merged “Konnie” as Annette calls her. But I think what I like best of all is when Konnie and Olivia go all Bensonhurst, like they did on the gambling guys and a bit with Franco. I think the two of them are a force to be reckoned with, and I would have liked to see more of that.

(26) Marian says:

Amazing, she is first class Actress
She can be mad, afraid, happy,cry anything why is she leaving only to be replaced.
They seem to get rid of many good Actors.
The new Lulu well, we’ll see, ordinary so far.

I think she did a wonderful job as Kate/Connie. GH is getting too unreal these days anyway…they have put 3 of the one life to live characters in there again, as other people???
