Dear Soaps,
What ever happened to Jessie Brewer on General Hospital? — Westva47

Dear Westva47,
Actress Emily McLaughlin died in 1991 after being on GH since it began in 1963. By the time she died, Jessie hadn't been on the show for a while, so GH never dealt with the character's disappearance. There was a brief mention after an episode, when the now deceased John Beradino (ex-Steve Hardy) talked about the actress's passing. It wasn't until many years later, when GH aired its 30th anniversary show, that anyone on-screen mentioned Jessie. Steve mentioned that she had died a few years before. (DD)
