“General Hospital” Star Found Dead in Field

Robyn Bernard, a renowned actress recognized for her role in the popular soap opera “General Hospital,” has passed away at the age of 64. Bernard’s body was discovered in an open field behind a business establishment in San Jacinto, California, on a Tuesday morning, as reported by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office.

Bernard, who portrayed the character Terry Brock in the long-standing soap opera, was pronounced dead at 4:08 a.m. The coroner’s office was able to identify Bernard through her fingerprints after receiving a call for a death investigation.

An autopsy was scheduled for the following Wednesday, but the toxicology results, which could provide more insight into the cause of death, may take several weeks to be finalized. At this time, authorities do not suspect any foul play in Bernard’s death.

Born on May 26, 1959, in Gladewater, Texas, Bernard embarked on her acting career with roles in several television shows, including “Diva,” “Simon & Simon,” and “Betty Blue.” In 1984, she landed the role of Terry Brock, also known as Terry O’Connor, on “General Hospital.” She remained in this role for 145 episodes before leaving the show in 1990.

Bernard’s acting career also included appearances on shows such as “Whiz Kids,” “The Facts of Life,” “Tour of Duty,” and “Kings for a Day.” Her final credited role was as a psychologist in “Voices from High School” in 2002. After this, Bernard largely stepped away from the Hollywood limelight.

Bernard is survived by her father, Jerry Wayne Bernard, and her two sisters, Crystal and Scarlett.
