Is Sabrina Leaving Port Charles?

Patrick Drake and Sabrina Santiago have had a difficult relationship from the beginning. The two have been through so much together. First they had to make it around a huge obstacle we like to call The Britch. Sabrina had eyes for Patrick they day they met and Dr. Westbourne made it very difficult for Sabrina to get to him. Eventually though, she succeeded and Patrick and Sabrina fell in love. Not long after that, Patrick’s presumed dead wife Robin returned on a day no other than what was supposed to be Patrick and Sabrina’s wedding day. Shortly after Patrick chose his wife Robin, Patrick learned that Sabrina was pregnant. After being told that baby was actually Carlos’, he was then told the truth that he was indeed the Father. Patrick immediately fell in love with his unborn child. After Robin left Port Charles to go try and save Jason’s life, Patrick and Sabrina had grown closer and were making plans for the new baby. Emma was excited to get a new little brother as well. Everything was finally going smoothly until the unthinkable happened. As Patrick, Sabrina, and Emma were driving home from Emma’s recital, they were run off the road causing injury to Sabrina. She went into preterm labor at just 26 weeks. Yesterday on General Hospital, baby Gabriel passed away.

This story leads up to the rumors that have been circulating regarding the exit of Sabrina Santiago. Actress Teresa Castillo was pregnant in real life at the time these last episodes were filmed. Since then she has given birth to her own baby girl. That being said, the actress will be departing to go on maternity leave. Fans have been speculating that the story will lead to Sabrina going off to Puerto Rico to be with family in her time of grief.

Castillo will be exiting the canvas quite soon but it is unknown whether or not there will be a temporary replacement for the character or if Port Charles will be missing Sabrina for a few months.

General Hospital Casting Call

The Executives over at GH have put out a casting call for a new female character. Although the description of the new role sounds a lot like Sabrina Santiago (actress, Teresa Castillo), we have been assured that this is not to replace the actress.

Teresa Castillo is out on maternity leave but they will not be replacing the actress, however there may be a temporary recast for Sabrina while Castillo is away on leave.

They are looking for an actress to play the role of a young woman who is from Mexico (Sabrina is from Puerto Rico), and wants to build a foundation in Port Charles with a medical career.

What ties will the new young lady have with the current residents of Port Charles? Will she butt heads with Sabrina or become her BFF?
