Bergen Williams, Who Played Big Alice on 'General Hospital,' Dies at 62

She battled Wilson’s disease, her sister said


Bergen Williams, the actress who played Big Alice on ABC soap opera “General Hospital,” has died. She was 62.

Williams’ sister shared the news via the posting of a prayer card on Twitter. Captioned “Rest in Power Bergen Williams,” the card states that Williams died in July.

“Bergen Williams succumbed to the ravages of Wilson’s Disease surrounded by loving family,” the prayer card reads. “Bergen was a writer, inventor and actress who played Big Alice on the TV soap General Hospital.”

See the tweet at the bottom of this story.

Wilson’s disease is a rare disorder that causes copper to accumulate in one’s liver, brain and other vital organs. It is inherited.

A rep for Williams did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for confirmation on the actress’s passing, nor did a spokesperson for “General Hospital.”

Big Alice was a maid, but also secretly a professional wrestler on the side. Pretty perfect soap stuff.

Williams appeared on 155 “General Hospital” episodes from 2002 to 2015, according to IMDb. She wrote three “Power Rangers” episodes and had a laundry list of guest-acting roles, including on “Happy Endings,” “Nip/Tuck,” “Scrubs” and “7th Heaven.”
