“I will share more later,” Smith added. “I wanted to [sic] thank you to everyone for their love and efforts and ask you to respect the privacy of her family at this time.”
GH viewers will remember Pearlman as Margaret “Maggie” McMorris, who tended a bar in Brooklyn, NY. She shared scenes with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard), Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) and Mike Corbin (Max Gail) during a storyline in January 2020.
While the role was a recurring one, GH executive producer Frank Valentini remembers the actress fondly.
“Lindsey Pearlman was terrific on General Hospital and we are saddened to hear of this tragedy,” Valentini tweeted. “Our hearts go out to her family and friends.”
Pearlman’s credits include appearances on American Housewife, Chicago Justice, Empire and Selena: The Series.
