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.

I for one, am glad it was done the way it was. I was not looking for the long goodbye from her illness. And all the naysayers………………this way, the body in the shape that it was in, Robin CAN return later. THE DOOR WAS LEFT OPEN…….

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

Anna to the Rescue As Finola Hughes Returns To General Hospital

If you caught the end of Monday’s episode of General Hospital, just as Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck) was ramping up her efforts to threaten Charlotte (Scarlett Fernandez) on the pier, she is stopped in her tracks by none other than Anna Devane!  And with that, it signals the return of all-time GH favorite and powerhouse actress, Finola Hughes, who has been off the ABC daytime drama series for an extended period of time.

With the return of the mighty Hughes comes some intriguing romantic storypoints in that: the man who proposed to Anna before she left Port Charles, Hamilton Finn (Michael Easton), has found out that he is a father to Hayden’s (Rebecca Budig) child.  Previously, he thought the child had died, but Hayden lied and thus the two have moved from icy towards each other, to growing closer.

What will happen when Anna finds out what has gone in Port Charles while she was away?

ABC and GH released this week’s promo which teases a moment where Anna announces she has returned while Finn and Hayden are together.  You can check that out below.

Now that Finola is back, what are your hopes for Anna in story? Finding the bad guys and finding love with Finn, or will her story take another twist and turn that no one saw coming? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

General Hospital Receives Honor From Ruderman Family Foundation

General Hospital was one of five television shows that has been named and honored by the Ruderman Family Foundation for their accurate depictions of people with disabilities.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the soap received the recognition for the casting of Maysoon Zayid who portrayed Shilohs’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) lawyer, Zahra Amir.

Zayid is an actress and disabilities advocate living with cerebral palsy. In addition, Maysoon is also one of America’s first Muslim women comedians.  Zayid said landing on GH was a “lifelong dream,” after finding it difficult to land roles due to her disability.

Along with GH, the foundation’s seal of authentic representation went to: Netflix’s Tales of the City and Raising Dion, and BBC/HBO’s Years and Years and Audience’s Loudermilk, great company for the ABC daytime drama series to be included with.

Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation expressed in a statement. “By giving credit where credit is due in Hollywood, we hope to inspire a broader, longer-term, industry-wide sea change when it comes to authentically casting actors of all abilities.”

In addition, Frank Valentini, executive producer of General Hospital stated: “Our goal has always been to provide stories that are authentic and relatable for our viewers. Having the opportunity to welcome Maysoon Zayid onto the show was exciting for us. She is an incredible talent and was a perfect fit to guest-star as Zahra Amir. It takes all kinds of people to tell a story; especially those that are rich and entertaining enough to resonate with our audience.”
