When she is not busy popping into General Hospital to reprise her role as the beloved Robin Scorpio Drake (look for her soon at the upcoming Nurses’ Ball episodes), Kimberly McCullough is busy pursuing her directing career behind the camera.

The expectant mom, just got received another feather in her cap, when she was among the inaugural directors picked to participate in the DGA (Director’s Guild of America) TV Director Mentorship Program.  As part of the mentorship experience, early-career directors (Protégés) are paired with veteran TV directors (Mentors) who will serve as their professional guides to the working world of episodic television throughout the 2017-18 season. Participants in the structured, intensive career development program are matched based on their work experience, interpersonal chemistry and mutual craft interests to ensure a fulfilling experience.

“With television directing jobs on the rise and more industry employers heeding the call for director diversity – our members have told us that they are seeking career development resources to help set them up for success,” said DGA president Paris Barclay. “And the DGA has the best resources in the world – a deep well of talent made up of seasoned TV directors who are dedicated and eager to give back to their Guild and share their years of expert experience with the next generation. That was the driving force behind this new mentorship program and initiatives which are designed to equip early-career directors and members transitioning to episodic television directing with the tools necessary to turn those first few jobs into lifelong careers.”

Congrats to Kimberly on being part of this excited new program! Share your thoughts on Kimberly’s selection into the program in the comment section below!

This young lady is gung-ho on being a director. I knew she did some kind of internship at “Grey’s Anatomy” and a few other things behind the camera. Still miss seeing her as Robin on a daily basis but glad to see that she has that determination to succeed in anything she does.

This is great news for Kim. What a winner! Now onto business, Robin must be recasted! Anna is front an center and the perfect recast is available. Elizabeth Hendrickson. AND, Jason Thompson is never leaving Y&R so you might as well recast Patrick and the perfect recast is available for him, as well. Greg Rikaart. MEGA CHEMISTRY between both actors!

Recasting Robin? No way! Kimberly has played Robin since she was 7 years old. Fans watched her grow up on the show. She is and always will be the only Robin, there is no one else the fans would accept in the role.

I love Kim and you are right, there is only one BUT I see how this hurts a show time and time again. Look at Jeanne Cooper, she died and they didnt recast and now the Chancelor name is buried with her. Lets say this, what if Kim gave ABC her blessing?

Oh thank GOD. I’ve been saying this for years.

Kimberly chose directing. I wish her GREAT success. But the character is needed, if only for the next head trauma Jason gets. (One every two years, right?)

It’s painful for fans… she’s had a truly inspired run and truly is a legacy character.

A recast for her and Patrick with Emma and a new kiddo in tow would make me happy.

Now, can Jason put away the black tees, guns, and all mob stuff and settle down as a Quatermain. Pretty please?

Jason Q, AMEN!

Great news! She was in an ABC/Disney program of some sort so this is another big step in the right direction. And of course, I’m glad to see her more regularly on GH. She’s probably one of the few former contract actors that can pop in so easily and blend into story/situations without much work required from other actors, directors, and writers at GH. So easy! And Brooklyn will be back soon too!

Katelyn MacMullen Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary On GH; Now, What Will Happen When Willow Finds Out The Truth About Wiley?

Since Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) first appeared on the General Hospital canvas as the school teacher who needed to let Charlotte’s (Scarlett Fernandez) parents (Valentin, Nina and Lulu) know of her bullying tactic sat school, the character has become quite intertwined to others in Port Charles.

We eventually learned that Willow shared a dark past with the late Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin), and even had his child, but never told him about it.  Later, Willow seem to get the attention of two young gentlemen; Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard).

As of now, Chase and Willow look to be quite the happy couple.  But, what will happen when Willow learns the devastating truth- that the little boy she gave up -that is being raised by Brad (Parry Shen) and Lucas (Ryan Carnes) isn’t really hers.  In fact, her son died when Brad took Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) baby to replace the baby that died.

In a post on her Instagram, Katelyn MacMullen shared that it’s hard to believe a year has past since her debut on the ABC soap opera expressing gratitude: “It’s been a year since I’ve joined this incredible cast! I love this show so much, and every single person involved. I’m so grateful 🖤 It’s been a pretty crazy ride for Willow so far, and I’ve enjoyed every second of it 🌚 Thank you @generalhospitalabc !! 🙏 #GH #oneyearanniversary”

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

Then, let us know if you are intrigued to see the short film when its out via the comment section below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
