Birth Name: Rebecca Ann Liberty Herbst
Birth Place: Encino, California, United States
Rebecca Ann Liberty Herbst was born in Encino, California. By the age of five, “Becky”, as she is referred to by her family, knew that she wanted to be on television. She started with commercials. Herbst now has more than 60 under her belt.
Rebecca dabbled with the idea of becoming a professional skater, but nixed the idea at the age of 16, to concentrate on acting full time. Her first television appearances included L.A. Law, Highway to Heaven, McGee and Me!, Why Me?, Kaleidoscope, Beverly Hills 90210, Shrunken Heads, Step by Step, Boy Meets World, Donor Unknown, Sister Sister, The Lazarus Man and Hefner: Unauthorized.
In 1996, Herbst landed the recurring role of Suzee on Space Cases and added the role of Kristen on Brotherly Love in 1997. Later that year, Herbst auditioned for the role of Elizabeth Webber on General Hospital and won the role over the competition.

Originally, the contract was for three years and yet, 20 years later, Rebecca is still going strong. Herbst credits Jonathan Jackson (Lucky) for helping her early on, navigating the world of daytime and working opposite veterans like Maurice Benard, Genie Francis and Jacklyn Zeman. Added bonus– she met her future husband, Michael Saucedo (ex-Juan) on the set.
When she isn’t working, Rebecca loves spending time with her husband Michael and their three children, Ethan, Ella and Emerson. She also likes to nurture her other creative outlet– fashion design. Herbst has designed many of her own dresses for the Daytime Emmys and for her co-stars like Natalia Livingston and Kimberly McCullough.

When Elizabeth Webber first rolled into Port Charles, she was misguided and calculating, but under the interpretation of Rebecca Herbst, she became one General Hospital’s beloved characters.
Herbst has received 3 Emmy nods for the breakout role. She was a child actress with more than 60 commercials and roles on such shows as L.A. Law, Highway to Heaven, Beverly Hills 90210, Step by Step, Boy Meets World and Days of Our Lives.
Rebecca manages to balance her hectic Hollywood schedule with a normal home life and continues to do so for her children and husband, Michael Saucedo, ex-Juan on GH.
