Lilly Melgar, best known to soap fans as Lily Corinthos on General Hospital and Claudia Cortéz on The Bold and the Beautiful, has gone through a heartbreaking loss. Condolences are going out to the actress at this difficult time.

Lilly Melgar Shares News Of Heartbreaking Loss

“Absolutely heartbroken … I LOVED my Karmen ….” Melgar posted on Instagram over the loss of her beloved chicken. “Those close to me knew how I adored her … as @jessica_jimenez_freer said to me when first meeting her ‘You mean to tell me this whole time we all thought you were a Ginger but in reality, you’re really a MaryAnn?!?!’ (In reference to Gilligan’s Island lol).”

Melgar added, “#RIP sweet girl …Thank you for opening up my heart and filling it with joy. She had the BEST personality .. I am sooo going to miss you.”

The actress’s pals reached out with words of support. “Our animals bring us such joy, lessons and unconditional love that it’s sad losing them,” posted @harley.rodriguez. “She knew and felt your love. I’m so sorry.”

The Famous Clink, Boom Moment

Veteran GH fans recall Melgar’s exit from the show as Lily, Sonny’s then-pregnant wife, as the ‘clink, boom!’ moment. While Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil) and Jax (Ingo Rademacher) were celebrating their marriage with a champagne toast (that was the ‘clink’), Lily got into Sonny’s car unaware that it was booby-trapped with a bomb (that was the boom!).

After exiting GH, Melgar had a run as Claudia Cortéz on The Bold and the Beautiful. Claudia was paired with Thorne during her time on B&B. Melgar’s also known for her role as Janice on the Amazon Prime series The Bay. Melgar has won two Daytime Emmys for her role as a producer on The Bay. Recently, the actress made her sitcom debut on the peacock’s Kenan, starring Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live). Soap Hub sends sincere condolences to Lilly Melgar at this difficult time.
