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 »

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… Read more »

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.
