Lynn Herring/"Lucy Coe" (ABC)

As much as General Hospital fans look forward to what’s to come, we also love to look back. Here’s a look at some of the actors lives who have departed from the sets of Port Charles:

*With so much talk in 2007 about the father of Elizabeth Spencer’s offspring, let’s take a peek at what’s going on in the life of Chad Brannon, the actor who played the late great Zander Smith (Cameron’s biological father). He’s been a very busy guy; for starters, he and his wife Carly had a baby boy named Hudson on December 18. A hearty congratulations from your friends at Soaps.com! On the work front, Chad’s vocal chords have served him well in that he’s been doing a lot of voice-over work and is up for a pretty interesting gig, the voice of SOAPnet! He also recently signed with a new agent and has high hopes for on-camera work as well.

*Ever since whack job Colleen McHenry (Spencer’s nanny) left Port Charles, her portrayer, Amanda Tepe, has been a very busy lady. She was recently spotted on two episodes of The Disney Channel’s “Cory in the House” as a White House tour guide. Since leaving GH earlier this year, she’s also been on acclaimed prime time shows such as “Dexter”, “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” and “Entourage”. What’s next for her? A feature film called “Jelly”.

*Remember Allegra Montenegro? Now think back…a couple years ago Sam (Kelly Monaco) had a look-alike named Alicia. Allegra was the girl’s mother who made Sam learn how to ballroom dance. Got it now? Anyway, the actor’s name is Meg Bennett (but some may refer to her these days as MRS. Robert Guza Jr.!). In addition to marrying the Exec. Producer and Head Writer of our beloved GH, Meg recently served as co-writer of Night Shift! Now that the show has completed it’s first season, she is working on a humorous memoir titled “You Used To Be Wonderful”, which refers to the comments she gets when fans recognize her from her various characters on Search for Tomorrow, Santa Barbara and The Young and the Restless (where she played Victor Newman’s first wife Julia).
