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 of her dreams, til now (Robin that is).

Anyway, i really enjoy both actors, both good looking, thought they were a couple in real life w/all the chemistry and so comfortable w/each other. But I hear they’re best friends. They seem fun, caring and very sweet. W/each other and their fans. I enjoy both thoroughly as great actors and hope they con’t to shine. Love Finola too. Very talented group and have LOVED watching them over the yrs.

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 the real story. Too bad Rick is only staying a short time. But of course we have to have airtime for those OLTL characters who’s show was cancel. I wish the EP and writer would remenber this is GH. OLTL had their ending, now let GH have their”s

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
