General Hospital' Star Found Dead in 'Open Field'

Robyn Bernard, known for her role in the long-running soap opera "General Hospital" in the late 1980s, has passed away.

A news release from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office in California revealed that the actress's body was discovered on Tuesday in an "Open field behind business 1800 block of S. San Jacinto Ave., San Jacinto 92583."

According to the release, the 64-year-old actress, who resided in San Jacinto, was pronounced dead at 4:08 a.m.

TMZ reported that Bernard’s body was identified through her fingerprints, and law enforcement responded to a call regarding her whereabouts.

The cause of her death remains undetermined. Although an autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday, results from toxicology tests are expected to take weeks.

No foul play is suspected in her passing, as per the New York Post.

Bernard, originally from Gladewater, Texas, began her entertainment career as a singer alongside her younger sister Crystal, who later starred in the 1990 sitcom “Wings,” according to Variety.

In 1981, Bernard appeared in Jean-Jacques Beneix’s acclaimed film “Diva.”

She made her debut on “General Hospital” in 1984, portraying the character Terry Brock — later known as Terry O’Connor — for 145 episodes, as reported by TMZ.

Brock’s storyline on the show involved struggles with alcohol that affected her music career. Bernard's character was written off the show in March 1990 when she signed a recording deal and departed from the fictional town of Port Charles, New York, as noted by Variety.

In 1986, Bernard appeared in the French film “Betty Blue,” which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film.

Following her departure from “General Hospital,” she had roles in the 1992 French miniseries “Maigret” and the 1997 movie “Kings for a Day.”

Bernard’s last credited role was in the 2002 film “Voices from High School,” where she portrayed a psychologist.

She is survived by her father, Jerry Wayne Bernard, and her sisters Crystal and Scarlett, according to the Post.
