In a delightful interview with General Hospital favorite Kimberly McCullough (Robin), the actress-turned-director visited Good Day LA Monday morning.

During Kimberly’s segment, co-hosts Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone discussed her Pretty Little Liars directorial debut which airs Tuesday night at 8PMEST/PST on Freeform.  In addition, Steve and Maria asked Kimberly her thoughts on how Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Robin were recently written off of General Hospital.

Kimberly responded:  “I think this was good for the fans, because Robin and Patrick really deserved their happy ending, and they did literally ride off into the sunset arm and arm.  It felt like closure.  But I have to say, I’m really sad that I don’t get to see Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) on my television set anymore, because I am a pyschofan and I watch the show.  But I am very sad I won’t be able to see my little girl, but I’ll see her in real life!”

As for her experience working with the cast of Pretty Little Liars, McCullough expressed:  “I just love all of the actors so much.  All of the ladies, and the gentlemen, were just so professional and so lovely to work with that I felt really lucky to be apart of that show.”  When asked what people that she knew thought when they found out that Kimberly wanted to be a director, she added: “I had many people roll their eyes at me, now I’m showing them!”

During the conversation, the co-hosts also talked openly about Kimberly’s recent blog post where she detailed moments from her difficult and heartbreaking 2015, which included her miscarriage after 22 weeks, and her brain tumor scare. But Maria mentioned that she admired that through the heartbreak conveyed in her writing that Kimberly also did it with humor.

    She is such a doll! And speaking of dolls, I can see the seven year old in her as I watch the interview and think back to the Asian Quarter story where the black pearls were hidden in her doll as eyes. Crazy stuff! I wish her nothing but the best and hope she has a better 2016!

    I doubt I will watch as I have never seen the show and have no interest. I am happy for KM in her quest to be a director and wish her the best.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
