Updated August 3: Chloe Lanier exits General Hospital on August 8, though the door has been left open for her character Nelle Benson to return in the future.
As Soaps.com reported on June 28, Chloe Lanier has reportedly decided to leave General Hospital when her current contract ends. Lanier joined GH as Nelle Benson in July of 2016, as previously reported by Soaps.com. However she first appeared in 2015 as a young Patricia Spencer in flashbacks during a special episode dedicated to Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer), who retired from the show that year. The actress is said to be focusing on film and primetime, as reported by Daytime Confidential.
Lanier won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress at this year's 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. She is said to be taping her final scenes this week, which would put her on air until the end of July.
