Is Lulu leaving 'General Hospital'?

While it has been reported that Sonny will ultimately survive the fall, one character who is leaving the soap drama is Lulu (played by Emme Rylan). Earlier this month, rumors surfaced that the longtime character would be exiting the show.  

The actress sparked rumors that she was exiting the long-running series after posting on Instagram: “Some days are hard and you just need your whole family to give you a hug.”

While that heartfelt comment didn't raise major red flags, fellow cast members left supportive comments and sent her well wishes. As fans began to question the actress' fate on the series, she responded via her Instagram Story: “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer." 

She continued, "People are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time off, so the only thing I can say is, ‘No, I did not choose this.’ I can’t say anything else. There you go. That’s all I am allowed to say.”   

Soapdirt previously reported that characters would be killed off of General Hospital due to budget cuts because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic (also known as COVID-19). 

Fingers crossed more fan-favorite characters will not be leaving the series...
