Gladys Corbin is the type of character that makes a significant impact on the audience. Typically, the audience has a love-hate relationship with a particular character because we simply love to hate them. A great performer makes you feel something for their character. So, if you’re left with hate and animosity toward a fictional person, that means they’ve done their job!
As for myself, many times the love to hate vibe turns straight into love for the character. It’s like I don’t even care that someone came to port Charles to torture the family whose daughter needed a kidney. Or, a boarding school brat who was actually a deranged con artist. Thankfully, soap operas love redemption for their characters. Moreover, how about a ruthless, business woman who didn’t hesitate to blackmail and manipulate her own granddaughter.
Gladys Corbin (Bonnie Burroughs) falls into the same category as many of the greats. Nelle (Chloe Lanier), Esme (Avery Kristen Pohl), and even Tracy Quartermaine (Jane Elliot). As most great tv villains, at some point it comes to an end. And General Hospital news and spoilers reveal that the time is now for Gladys. Yes, her reign as Greedy Gladys is over.
Gladys Says Goodbye To Port Charles
Reportedly, General Hospital news confirms that Bonnie Burroughs leaves General Hospital as Gladys is punished by Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard). According to GH spoilers, Gladys isn’t getting away with what she did to Sasha (Sofia Mattsson). In a recent interview with Soap Opera Digest, Burroughs opened up about the news, confirming that Gladys was written out of the script. She reflects on how she learned Gladys’s fate, and admits that she’s grateful.
Moreover, Burroughs admitted that Executive Producer Frank Valentini gave her an heads up. He informed her that the end was near prior to receiving the scripts. She admits, “I’m glad I did get that heads-up,” because if I hadn’t, when I got the script for the last episode, it would have hit me harder.”
Sadly, her time as Gladys is over, but that doesn’t mean that the goodbye has to beforever. Gladys should count her lucky stars for getting the royalty treatment from Sonny. Some say he’s gone soft, while others say he did what he could considering that she’s family.
Accordingly to the latest GH casting news, Bonnie Burroughs officially filmed her lays episode as Gladys Corbin. Luckily, the door is left open for Greedy Gladys, Monster-in-law, to someday return.
