General Hospital comings and goings hint that Brooklyn Rae Silzer might already have one foot out the door. The actress, who is best known for her role as Emma Scorpio-Drake on the hit ABC soap, hinted that she is thinking about a career that doesn’t involve a daytime television set and cameras. Here’s what she has to say.
General Hospital Spoilers: Brooklyn Rae Silzer Wants To Quit The Show?
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the talented young lady did admit that she does have other aspirations than acting right now. She told the publication, “I’ve been applying for nursing school. That takes up most of my time.”
So, does this mean she wants to leave General Hospital for good? Brooklyn didn’t say, but it’s pretty clear that she’s got other things on her mind these days. She continued, “Because ever since I started, I’ve known I wanted to be a nurse, I think since I was six years old. I always said, ‘I want to be a nurse when I grow up,’ and it just stayed with me and I’ve become more inspired as I’ve been doing volunteer work throughout my high school years.”

That said, Brooklyn added that she’s hoping to get into a good school in California so she can continue working at General Hospital throughout her college years. The actress also said that she’s getting some pretty cool on-screen experience for her off-screen future aspirations. She said, “It was cool to play a smarter character and to [find out] she’s working in a lab, since that’s something I obviously want to do in real life. She’s not that different, but she has evolved from when she was little.”
We wish Brooklyn the best luck but at the same time hope that she stays on the soap for as long as she can. Port Charles would definitely not be the same without her!
