Seems like the rumor mill was correct and now Soap Opera Digest is reporting on their official Facebook page that it is confirmed, that indeed, Daytime Emmy winner and long time fan favorite, Kimberly McCullough is leaving General Hospital as Dr. Robin Scorpio Drake.

According to the post, “Kimberly McCullough has decided to pursue her dream of directing full-time, so she has decided to leave General Hospital as storyline dictates,” says a show spokesperson. “Expect a poignant and must watch storyline for Robin and Patrick.”

In addition the news reports that Kimberly will air into the early months of 2012! This announcement comes on the heels of the news that Jonathan Jackson (Lucky) has also opted to leave the series, all of which does not bode well for a show that needs its strong performers in a fight to the finish to try and stay on the air as 2012 is the key turning point to whether it lives on or gets cancelled like the other ABC Daytime Dramas.

So what do you think of Kimberly’s decision? Let us know!

Good for her, to get out before the show gets cancelled. And once it does get cancelled, don’t look for Prospect Park to do anything, because they can’t even save themselves!

I’ve seen these comments on multiple sites about actors leaving a sinking ship. Yes, daytime is unfortunately a dying genre, but why would these actors decide to leave now? Why not just ride it out and collect a stable payday as long as they can? Let’s face it, many of the cast of GH will not be getting regular acting roles when the series comes to an end. It just doesn’t make financial sense, to me at least, for them to leave the show now. Kimberly wants to go into directing full-time, that’s fine, but it couldn’t wait 6 months… Read more »

Good for her although this is sad news I’m happy for Kimberly I didn’t no Kimberly wanted to direct full time. I like the idea that she wants to direct full time we need more women directors. Good luck to you Kimberly your number one fan.

I wish Kimberly the best of luck, and while I understand she is doing what is best for her (as it should be), as a long time fan of all three ABC Soaps, I am so very sad to see this wonderful genre disappearing, and would love to see everyone stay in place at GH, because if everyone starts jumping ship, they have no shot at survival on ABC. Again, I do not blame those that leave, as you must put your own career first, but I hope most decide to stick it out, and see if it can survive… Read more »

This is bittersweet news…Kimberly and Robin have grown up before our eyes on GH and she’s had some pretty terrific storylines over the years.
But it’s very exciting -the prospect of her directing full time.
Good for you Kimberly.

Best to jump off the sinking ship while you can, it must be bad behind the scenes for these veteran actors to bail.

kimberly and jason thompson message to scrubs fans From @whitewatercrew (about 20 mins ago): Thank you for your tweets. I have read ALL of them. I wish I had words for the type of gratitude I feel for all of your support……for so many years. Personally, I feel like it’s the right time for me to pursue my dream of directing episodic TV as well as writing…and directing feature films. I am heartbroken as well. To leave Robin, a character that is a huge part of myself and my life. GH is my family and you (the fans) are like… Read more »

I”m so sad about the news of Kimberly leaving GH, and acting as well, I wish her nothing but the best, however, i’m sad because this means the end for her wonderful character, and now theres no chance of Robert and Anna returning full time. I really feel like GH is dying out slowly, and will end with no chance of going out w/ a bang, especially if its stars start leaving before it ends.

Wouldn’t have been funny if she directed GH? Hell, she could have written for it as well.

Best regards Kim.

I will be sorry to see you leave the show as I have watched you since you were a little girl. If your story line is to die due to aids it will truly be sad but fitting. I am only guessing on this but wish you the best in your up coming adventures.

I seldom get to watch GH because I work full time, but this young lady was one of my favorite characters on the show. Her storyline through the years has been good and I’ve enjoyed the role she played in her marriage. I hope GH can survive with both Lucky and Robin leaving the show. It’s a good show and I enjoy the characters who have been with the show for many years.

I’ve been a fan more than 2 decades and have grown very close to most of the cast. I can almost assure you if Robin, Jason, Sonny, Carley, Dante’, Lulu and Michael leave GH will be history. Knowing Jason is gone I doubt if I watch it anymore!!

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
