Elegant actress Anne Jeffreys, who starred on "General Hospital" for 20 years, has died. She was 94.
KABC's George Pennacchio confirmed the news Wednesday on Twitter.
Jeffreys had a long career, one that started when she came to New York in the '40s as a soprano who sang at Carnegie Hall.
After several movie roles, including in "Step Lively" (1944) opposite Frank Sinatra and in several Dick Tracy serials as Tess Trueheart, Jeffreys replaced leading lady Patricia Morison in the original Broadway production of "Kiss Me, Kate" in 1949.
Alongside her husband, Robert Sterling (who died in 2006), she starred in the early-TV sitcom "Topper" (1953-1955), playing a mischievous "ghostess with the mostess" who could only be seen by one flustered banker.
Jeffreys made many TV guest-starring roles, and was a series regular on "The Bob Cummings Show" (1959), "Falcon Crest" (1982-1983), "Finder of Lost Loves" (1984-1985), "Baywatch" (1993-1998) and "Port Charles" (1999-2003), along with her long-running association with "General Hospital" (1984-2004).
Her final appearance was on HBO's "Getting On" in 2013.
