Though the network has officially declined comment, soapcentral.com has learned that Angel Boris (Angel Ellis) has now taped her final scenes with General Hospital. Those scenes will air later this month.
Internet reports started surfacing in mid-September stating that the actress had been given a pink slip. Boris, a former Playboy model, joined the cast of General Hospital in June as a mysterious woman with an unusual penchant for white clothing. Perhaps more than anything else, it was this lack of wardrobe variety that led to fans' displeasure with the character. Some fans began to speculate that the writers wanted to give the impression that Angel's name and garb implied something more heavenly - and that Angel was actually an angel. General Hospital's head writer Megan McTavish insisted that the clothing didn't imply anything heavenly, but still fans appeared irked.
Another factor that played against Angel was her infusion into a storyline involving the show's super-couple Sonny and Carly. Fans were outraged by rumors that Sonny and Angel might become an item. In a remarkable and immediate turn, fans unhappy that the role of Carly Corinthos had been recast out aside their longing to see Emmy winner Sarah Brown back in the role - at least temporarily.
Boris' final on-air appearance is October 26th.
