Recently, general hospital say goodbye to Inga Cadranel like Harmony. The actress left the ABC soap after three years in the role, but her character’s death, caused by Sasha (Sofia Matsson), created a lot of drama in Port Charles. Cadranel looked at her GH tenure in an interview with Soap Opera Digest.
Right before kicking the bucket, Harmony swore Carly (Laura Wright) secretly on Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) being at Nina (Cynthia Watros) the girl. Of this plot twist, Cadranel revealed:
I did not find this information until I had been there for a little while. We tried to do this scenario a year ago during [the height of] Covid but I was shooting two shows in Toronto and going back and forth wasn’t an option. So when I came back to LA, I was very surprised and grateful to Franc [Valentini, executive producer] for not recasting Harmony when I refused, and I was willing to come back to do this story when I got back.

She ended up being quite surprised by how Harmony came off the canvas saying:
Frank let me know in advance that this would be a final and meaningful death. I knew my contract was coming to an end and that was good because I have other projects I’m working on, but I thought maybe this was the type of scenario that would make Harmony disappear or leave [town] so that this door is always open to the road. I was really surprised when he told me that he and the writers had decided that Harmony was going to die.
The actress was thrilled with the excitement of her latest storylines, reflecting:
It was super fun to play something other than a warm and calm harmony reassuring Alexis [Nancy Lee Grahn]. I have to get out of the controlled energy I had for her. She was a spiritual hippie type, so when things started to unravel, it was great to let go. The workload was intense, to say the least. My last month has been a whirlwind. The constant emotions and dialogue I had was unlike anything I had experienced on a show, even as a lead. It really felt like they were working me to death [laughs]!
