Rachel Ames (born November 2, 1929 in Portland, Oregon) is an American actress. She was the longest-running performer on American Broadcasting Company's longest-running daytime serial, General Hospital, playing Audrey March Hardy from 1964 to 2007. She also played Audrey Hardy on the General Hospital spin-off series Port Charles. Her contract was not renewed for General Hospital in 2003, but she still appeared as a recurring character from 2003 until 2007.

Ames has been nominated three times for a Daytime Emmy Award as "Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama" for her role on General Hospital, and in 2004, was given a "Lifetime Achievement Award" Emmy.

In 1997 she appeared on ABC's special two-hour primetime preview of new daytime series Port Charles, a spin-off of the long-running Emmy winning hit General Hospital. Ames played her signature role of Audrey Hardy and needed extensive surgery.

She has also had dozens of TV guest-starring appearances (almost all before General Hospital) on series such as The Virginian, Ironside, Wagon Train, Ben Casey, Perry Mason, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and six different appearances on Science Fiction Theater.

She and her husband, Canadian actor Barry Cahill , have two daughters and two grandchildren. She is the daughter of actress Dorothy Adams and actor Byron Foulger.

In 2007, Rachel retired from GH after 43 years. However, it was announced on October 1, 2009, that Ames would reappear as Audrey in mid-October after a two year absence from the show.[1][2]
