Though Rebecca Herbst is staying put as GH's Liz, the character will be taking a brief hiatus, she tells Digest. "Because this [contract] negotiation went right up to the last minute, they did have to stop writing for me for a little while. I might not even be back [taping] until the second week of April, so Elizabeth is going to disappear for a little bit on your screens. They are going to try to sprinkle me in, but outlines have already been written, so I don’t know how much they can actually put me in." She last taped on March 8, five days before her current contract expired.
