'Lady Jane' passes away ~

Post by FLPeaches on Fri Dec 30, 2016 9:47 pm



Soap opera veteran Barbara Tarbuck, known for her role as General Hospital's Lady Jane Jacks has passed away.
 


Barbara Tarbuck, a veteran actress mostly known for her performances on General Hospital and American Horror Story: Asylum, died Monday at age 74, the Associated Press reports.

Tarbuck’s daughter, producer Jennifer Lane Connolly, confirmed her death to the AP Thursday. Connolly said her mother died at her Los Angeles home and suffered from Creutzfeldt-Jakob disorder, a rare, degenerative brain disease.



Kicking off her career at age 9, the Detroit native acted on Storyland, a children’s series on AM radio station WWJ. She went on to score TV roles in Charlie’s Angels, Dallas, Cagney & Lacey, The Golden Girls, Mad Men, Dexter, and General Hospital, where she portrayed Jane Jacks over the span of 14 years. In addition to playing Mother Superior Claudia on AHS, Tarbuck performed in two other Ryan Murphy hits, Nip/Tuck and Glee.

Tarbuck also pursued a career on stage in regional and New York theater productions, work her daughter told the AP made her especially proud. Her projects included a Broadway production of Neil Simon’s Brighton Beach Memoirs in the 1980s and Harold Pinter’s Landscape and Silence.

Tarbuck’s film highlights include performances in Big Trouble (1986), Short Circuit (1986), Curly Sue (1991), The Tie That Binds (1995) and Walking Tall (2004).

The actress’ education included studies at Wayne State University, the University of Michigan, and the London Academy of Music on a Fulbright Scholarship.

yes, they really should...

and remember, the last time we saw Jax,
he said he had to leave Port Charles early because Lady Jane wasn't feeling well.

Very sad news indeed. We will miss you, Lady Jane.
From Ingo:
So shocked to hear about my TV moms passing on the 26th of December. I first met Barbara in 1996 and she played Lady Jane jacks for 20 years. She was the kindest warmest person and it was always a joy to be around her. Was hoping we would have many more years of great scenes with her. My thoughts go out to her family, her daughter who she talked about often. I will miss you Mom. #barbaratarbuck @generalhospitalabc @realsebroche

Poor Ingo had a very hard year. Let's hope that 2017 is better for him and all of us.
