GH's Jason Thompson talks, "Is there hope for Scrubs?"

On-Air On-Soaps caught up with General Hospital’s, Jason Thompson (Patrick) at yesterday’s GH Fan Club Weekend Main Event 2010, to ask him, what he feels about his alter-ego’s slip up by hitting the sheets with ex-gal pal Lisa (Brianna Brown) while his wife, the loyal Robin, (Kimberly McCullough) was out of town.  And, what could be the possible fallout from long time Scrubs fans, and where the story is heading.  Here is what Jason had to say!

Is there plenty to be worried about here for Patrick and Robin?   This does not bode well that Patrick strayed from his devoted wife!

JASON: “I think there is enough to be worried about.  You know what?  I think, and I have said it before, it’s a lot if you are a scrubs fan, and it’s a little difficult, but at the end of the day, its story. We have not done much in this last little bit besides the postpartum depression material, and it’s a big change and a good change. I think its going to make them, Robin and Patrick, stronger in the end.”

How is working with Brianna Brown (Lisa)?

JASON: “She is great, and she works really hard. It’s the first time she has done the soaps, and we all are kind of working together on a story that is difficult to tell.”

Are you worried it’s going to be a difficult story for Scrubs fans to swallow, and of the pushback?

JASON: “I hope it’s difficult for them and there is some pushback.  We have our fan event Sunday, and I don’t look at anything on the internet, so I am kind of excited to see how people are responding…negatively or positively, or right down the middle.  If I get heckled I am ready for it, and I am good with it! “(Laughs) 

Is Kimberly McCullough OK with the story?

JASON: “Yeah I think she feels the same kind of thing. It’s story and it’s something to play. You know we were both saying that we can only go so long doing what we were doing for awhile, and that is there is nothing behind what we were portraying on screen for a good amount of time.  Now there is something behind every single scene we have, and it does not matter what we are taking about… there is something underneath it.”

You’re really involved in what looks to be a quadrangle with Steven, Lisa, you, Robin , and I am wondering where Olivia is going to fit into this? (A romance with Steven?)  There is going to be more fallout.

JASON: “Yeah, there is a lot more to every single scene now and a lot of people involved. Robin does not know, but Carly knows. Laura Wright (Carly) is so great to work with, and I love being on screen with her, and the process of working with her.  I am glad she knows, and the way she feels about Robin, and their history, it certainly adds another wrinkle to the story.”

Will Patrick sleep with Lisa again? What if she psychotically blackmails him to do so, or something like that?

JASON: “No. I don’t think so.  Even if she were to somehow try to blackmail Patrick, he would basically do anything to NOT sleep with her again.  I think the word “mistake” is maybe not the right word for it, but it’s the worst mistake he has ever made. I truly think he is sorry for it.”

Cool interview. I am interested in how this storyline will play out. As long as the usually male slanted writing doesn’t have Patrick blaming Robin for his cheating (her being in Africa, her issues, competing with her old and dead loves,etc) and Robin apologizing then I’ll remain a Scrubs fan.

Good interview! My favorite part the picture of Jason and Kimberly! As for the article itself my favorite parts are him saying Robin and Patrick will be stronger in the end (heck yeah they will be) and “No. I don’t think so. Even if she were to somehow try to blackmail Patrick, he would basically do anything to NOT sleep with her again.” I also agree with him about finally getting a story. I may not like how this all started but I am interested to see the fall out and the ultimate rebuild/reunion!

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”
