Bergen Williams, General Hospital’s Ned Quartermaine’s wife, dies at 62

Bergen Williams, known for her role as Ned Quartermaine’s wife, Lynn, on General Hospital, has died, according to a statement released by the show’s publicist on Monday. Williams died on Sunday at the age of 62, a tragic event that has left the veteran of daytime television grieving with her family. It is still unclear what caused her death.

“We have lost a beloved member of our family,” said General Hospital Executive Producer Frank Valentini. “Bergen Williams was a cherished member of the General Hospital family for more than five decades. Her portrayal of Lynn Quartermaine will be remembered as one of the great soap opera marriages of all time.”

During her career, Williams won multiple Daytime Emmy Awards for her work as Ned’s wife, and was responsible for the flamboyant Madeline Reeves character, which became synonymous with the famed General Hospital mansion. “I felt the light I had meant the world to the person that they were, but my heart also went out to my character, to me,” she told TV Guide in a 2017 interview. “I felt so much joy bringing that woman to life and bringing her to life through what was done in her voice, her eyes. And then to see people involved in General Hospital feel that affection. It was very healing for me, and I feel very honored.”

Williams was born in Louisiana, and began her acting career after winning an acting competition at the age of 10. She appeared in a number of film roles and TV shows, and briefly appeared on daytime television as a character who appeared in a play. She is survived by her husband, Romane Lenox, and six children.
