Rebecca Herbst may be staying on in the role of Elizabeth Webber, but she will be temporarily recast. ABC tells Soaps.com that due to illness, Rebecca will not be seen for a short time in Port Charles, but Elizabeth will continue to air in the form of former “Days of our Lives” star Martha Madison (ex-Belle) beginning June 8. Soaps.com wishes Rebecca a quick and healthy recovery.
