Jason Thompson interviews Kimberly McCullough on her exit from GH! – Watch the Video!

Courtesy/ABC

Missing Kimberly McCullough on your screen as Robin as much as we are?  Well, today, Kimberly released a brand new video interview in her series of farewell features with the cast, but this time there was a twist!  Kimberly was the interviewee and her long time co-star, Jason Thompson (Patrick) was the interviewer!  Thompson asked the beloved actress a series of questions that fans have wanted to know from her, including how she felt about her last scene, meeting Jason Thompson for the first time, if she is still watching GH and the way Robin’s exit strategy was played out and much more!

Here are some of Kimberly’s comments on some subjects that many want to know!

Kimberly on how she felt her final scene turned-out:   “I felt it was really rushed.   I don’t feel like I did a good job and a lot of that is they literally broke for lunch right before our last scene, and it totally stopped the momentum of what was going on with us, and then we had to jump right back in and connect again.  And then we re-wrote it right before, and I was still trying to get a handle on what we were saying.  I felt really rushed and looking back maybe that is a good thing because that was what Robin was feeling ( speaking in regards to being trapped in the lab) , like I am trying to catch up, and I don’t know what is really going on.  But when it was over I was like, “Oh man, I wish I could do that again.”

Kimberly on if she is watching GH since she has been gone, and what she thinks of the show now: “I think everyone is doing an incredible job right now.  It’s obvious that Frank Valentini has lit a fire under everyone’s ass, and I really like that.  Sometimes I go, “Do I really want to watch it?” And, sometimes it makes me to sad to watch it.”

Kimberly on how she felt about Robin’s exit story: “I’m really proud of you, Jason, and how you handled it.  I feel like in a way that weight and burden of the story was put on you and Finola Hughes (Anna) because it happened so fast. I can’t really speak to why it happened the way it did.  I am not the writer and I am not the producer, but I am proud in the way it was handled and in a way, at this point it doesn’t matter how I feel about it, because it’s over.  All I can do now is be grateful for the time I had there and any other feelings …there is no point.”

Now after reading these comments after the jump make sure to watch this very honest and direct interview as Kimberly addresses your questions with an assist from her Port Charles leading man!

That was great:) Thank you MF for the video of KM and JT. THey’re one of the main reasons I’ve stayed loyal to GH, when it was all mob this and mob that. I love a great romance and glad to see it from the beginning. Have watched GH since the 80’s and was happy to see this wonderful romance unfold w/Patrick. Romance, marriage and baby Emma. It was nice that Robin’s life wasn’t over b/c of hiv–I had thought thats where that storyline would go when 1st introduced. Anyway, both Robin and KM continued to bloosom and fullfill most… Read more »

Kimberely will be missed. I wish her all the best in the directing career. Too bad that with her exit from the show we didnot had any good scenes with her family. Did her dad even see his sil or grandchild? Why did they have to drag this storyline down by making it about Jason? Why did they have to have Liz be the one to tell Emma about her mother. Anna,Mac an dPatrick could have done this, that is what family does for family. Liz and Jason inserted in this story was not necessary. It just took away from… Read more »

GH’s Kirsten Storms Shares More Details on Her Brain Surgery and Recovery

On Sunday, Kirsten Storms (Maxie, General Hospital) posted a follow-up message on her Instagram account to her friends and followers on how she is doing following her brain surgery, and to answer any questions that may be out on there; so she decided to share further details.

Storms expressed: “First, thank you for all of the well wishes I’ve received over the last few days. 🥰 Little bit of info for those who are wondering.. I spent the last few years having random health issues that I disregarded as side affects to my medications or just something I was experiencing due to age. When I went to get an MRI for some severe neck pain I have been experiencing for the last few months (I assumed this neck pain was also causing my frequent “migraines”) my amazingly thorough orthopedist ordered an MRI of my head just to be on the “safe side” – even though that isn’t his area of expertise.  Truly a great doctor.  That’s when we stumbled upon a rather large, very full of fluid, cyst that was attached to the lower portion of brain. I feel very fortunate that my situation wasn’t more serious and that I had a wonderful neurosurgeon who immediately knew how to fix it. I’m not gonna lie, brain surgery had me nervous, but I’m immensely thankful to my family, friends, and incredible “work family” who have been supportive, kind and loving during a time when I’ve been feeling a lot of emotions. Work is a great place to be everyday and for the 2 months leading up to my surgery I found a lot of comfort being around the people I’ve worked beside for so many years. I’m excited to get back to it after my recovery. (Yes, they shaved a portion of my head, so please no comments if you don’t like my hair. It’s temporary.). Again, thank you to everyone for sending positive vibes my way. It’s not gone unnoticed. ♥️

Fun fact: I now firmly believe the new plates in my brain will give me some sort of special ability. Fingers crossed I can suddenly knit a sweater in 1 day. Ooo maybe 1 hour. 😮”

Please continue to send well-wishes to Kirsten via the comment section below as she is on the mend, and we look forward to her return to GH when she is recovered.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Reveals She Is Recovering From Brain Surgery

On Friday afternoon, General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) took to her Instagram Story accompanied in the car by her best friend, Emme Rylan (Ex-Lulu, GH) that she just underwent brain surgery.  In the video, Storms was in a neck brace.

In her message to her fans and friends, Kirsten shared: “I’ve not really spoken about this much, or at all, actually.  But, less than 48 hours ago, I had brain surgery, hence the neck brace.  It was on the lower portion of my brain. Emme is taking care of me until I get to my at-home nurse. It has been an interesting last couple of days.”

Kirsten went to clarify what kind of surgery it was, revealing: “What they had to drain and remove was not cancer. I want to clarify that right now before the Internet, goes crazy wild with rumors about this. I had a very large cyst that had split into two and the doctor said it was so full, the pressure was very noticeable when they opened up my skull.”

Now that the pressure is relieved from her brain, Storms will be healing and taking time off from work at GH, expressing: “I will be on the mend for the next several weeks. I will be back at work when this is over with.”

Share your well-wishes for a safe and speedy recovery to Kirsten via the comment section below.
