Robyn Bernard, the American actor who played aspiring singer Terry Brock on the soap General Hospital for six years, has died aged 64.

Bernard, who was born in Texas in 1959, had her big break in Jean-Jacques Beneix’s 1981 French thriller Diva.

Bernard went on to enjoy roles in Whiz KidsThe Facts of Life, and Simon and Simon.

But now, it’s been tragically announced that Bernard has died aged 64.

Bernard is most famous for her time on the ABC soap General Hospital.

She played Terry Brock, an aspiring singer who struggled with alcoholism.

Bernard starred in 145 episodes before leaving the soap in 1990 when Brock secured a record deal and moved away.

But sadly, following this role, Bernard’s career never reached such successful heights again.

Her infrequent ’90s roles include the French miniseries Maigret and the 1997 movie Kings for a Day.

Bernard’s final role was as a psychologist in the 2002 film adaptation of the play Voices from High School.
