The actress made her daytime debut on GH in 1997, and her winning portrayal quickly turned Liz into a fan favorite character. Her pairings with Jonathan Jackson’s Lucky made Liz and Lucky a major supercouple, and some GH fans still insist that Liz and Jason are meant for each other. Most recently, Liz has been paired with Franco, garnering their own group of devoted followers. Over the years, Herbst has received three Daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her work on the soap.
In real life, Herbst married former GH co-star Michael Saucedo (ex-Juan), and the pair have three children: Sons Ethan, 15, and Emerson, 6, and daughter Ella, 13.
