Kimberly McCullough has played the character of Robin Scorpio on General Hospital on and off for nearly 30 years now and it seems that she never intends to stay gone for very long. As the actress wraps up her recent stint she recently said that coming and going is actually very easy for her to do. She feels sorry for the shows fabulous writers that have to figure out how to make it happen in a logical way. Bringing Robin back to Port Charles is easy but figuring out her exits are pretty tricky.
According to an interview in the March 3rd print edition of Soap Opera Digest, Kimberly always wants to be working on GH. The problem is that she has other commitments to attend to that make staying full time nearly impossible. She knows full well that Robin could always be recast the minute she is off the set but for some reason the powers-that-be never do it. Although there was that one time when she was a teenager that it was actually contemplated because they didn’t think that Kimberly was sexy enough for the role!
When it comes to recasts Kimberly seems to agree with many soap fans. Any role can be recast, but some characters simply shouldn’t be and now after all of these years it seems that Robin falls into that character. As far as returning to GH again in the future, the door is obviously open. Kimberly’s requirement is always the same. Robin has to be strong. Even if held captive she has to at least fight back verbally, she cant be completely victimized and that is something that Frank Valenti has completely agreed with.
Fans are watching as Robin prepares to leave, likely to rescue her frozen friend, Jason Morgan. GH has insinuated that they will be bringing him back to Port Charles soon. Do you think that he will return with Robin or will she likely get tied up along the way? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
