    Daytime Emmy winner Chloe Lanier is exiting her role as bad girl Nelle Benson on General Hospital; not surprising – she has been wonderful in the role. This is the latest in a long line of actors from daytime who have left their roles lately. I enjoyed Nelle and found her to be a fun villainess and will miss her. Here’s hoping she moves to prime-time success!

    I think Lanier is very talented but it didn’t seem like the audience enjoyed Nelle all that much. I wish her good luck!

    With the quick succession of Lanier and Eileen Davidson leaving their shows, and Rome Flynn having already been gone from B&B even before the Emmys, half of this year’s big six acting Emmy winners will soon be off their shows.

    Thank God! Good actress but AWFUL character. The writers just didn’t know what to do with her. A bad girl character should be fun. Nothing about Nelle or her ridiculous schemes has ever been fun.

    Lanier is an excellent actress. Her talents were wasted on the role of Nelle, who was poorly-written. Remember how much we loved her on the anniversary episode of GH? Too bad they couldn’t have written her character more like that. But then GH doesn’t seem to grasp the concept of rooting value.

    I wish her the best of luck. I’ve been hearing great things about her, but I’ve only ever seen her Emmy reels for “GH” and frankly I didn’t think they were good at all. Was she better than that the rest of the time?

    I think the reason I enjoyed Nelle more than others is my total dislike for Laura Wright’s Carly (I loved Sarah Joy Brown, Tamara Braun and Jessica Botsford’s Carly’s – it’s only LW’s I can’t stand as I find her too shrill and shouts all of her lines) – I actually enjoyed her (CL) and had that strange thing that happens when you like an actor or an actress and start rooting for them even though they aren’t a ‘good’ character. (I always always always rooted for Dorian on OLTL, for example). I also thought her Emmy reel was amazing for 2017 and thoroughly deserved her Emmy win, but that’s jmho. I hope she goes on to other things or gets another soap role down the road….
