Needless to say, fans are devastated by Williams’ death, and have taken to social media to mourn. “I’m so sorry. I loved her as Alice on #GH She was a standout in all her scenes!” wrote Twitter user @Louisa_May_ in response to the post from Williams’ sister.
These sentiments were echoed by Williams’ costars on social media, as well. Nancy Lee Grahn, who played the character Alexis Davis alongside Williams’ Gunderson, posted a clip on Instagram of the former’s character sharing a disguised kiss with Gunderson with the caption “Best kiss evah! RIP dear Bergen.”
Similarly, “General Hospital” star Kimberly McCullogh, who played Dr. Scorpio Drake, mourned Williams through her Twitter. “Bergen was an incredible force to be reckoned with and I’m sorry to hear of her passing. Blessings to Bergen’s family and close friends.”
Williams is not the first “General Hospital” star to die this year. On June 29, it was announced that Stuart Damon — who played Dr. Alan Quartermaine — also died at the age of 84 due to renal failure.
