In one of our favorites episodes of General Hospital’s Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) mental health and awareness series, State of Mind, he welcomes his former co-star, Kimberly McCullough (Ex-Robin Scorpio Drake) for a candid and insightful interview touching upon a myriad of subjects.

Released on Sunday on Maurice’s State of Mind You Tube Channel, the two longtime friends and castmates catch up and revisit the past on General Hospital and more.

Kimberly talks about being a child actress, and the demands that fell upon her, including the the audition process for the role of Robin, and having some great co-stars to look after her in those early years which included: Finola Hughes (Anna) and Tristan Rogers (Robert), who play Robin’s parents.

In addition, Maurice and Kimberly talked about the 80’s hey day on GH and what went on behind-the-scenes, the all-time classic storyline of Robin and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) love story in the HIV/AIDS storyline which ultimately led to Stone’s death.  McCullough talks with Maurice about taping those final moments.

Maurice also recalls how Steve Burton’s (Jason) Emmy-award winning reel featured scenes with Kimberly and talks about how the two worked so well together, and Kimberly weighs-in.

As many know, Kimberly has been a TV and film director for over 10 years, and she speaks on how proud she is to live out her dream.   Later, she admits she had some personal struggles during her teenage years at GH, and how that she has dealt with that throughout her life.  In one of the most heart-warming and emotional moments, Kimberly shares how she was able to make it to see her father shortly before he passed.

You can watch the full conversation with Maurice and Kimberly below.

GH’s Kristina Wagner On Felicia’s Concern Over Maxie’s Emotional State

While Maxie (Kirsten Storms) knows exactly where baby Louise is, not many other people know, especially her mother, Felicia (Kristina Wagner).

Now, with Kristina Wagner back on-contract at General Hospital, it opens up more angles to play in the ongoing saga of “What happened to Maxie and Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) Baby?”

GH viewers know that Louise is “Bailey” and being taken of by Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton).  However, according to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, look for Felicia to be very worried over Maxie’s attitude toward finding her baby.

Wagner shared to SOD on Felicia: “She is absolutely concerned about Maxie. Why is she behaving this way? Is she traumatized to a point where she is not frantically looking for her baby?”

The actress goes on to say about her alter-ego: “Felicia thinks ‘What is wrong with you?  Your baby’s missing. Why are you not (falling apart)?’ And Maxie says, ‘I have to stay calm for my other children.’  She has a way of justifying it, but Felicia is questioning Maxie’s behavior.”

Look for Felicia to be more determined than ever to help find Maxie’s baby, which we know could spell trouble for everyone!

So, do you hope Felicia learns the truth about Louise, and helps Maxie with her cover-up? Or do you hope Felicia helps get the little one back in Maxie’s arms sooner than later? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
