General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that Sam (Kelly Monaco) will find herself feeling more and more overwhelmed by the situation she’s stuck in. Watching Jason (Billy Miller) suffer will only add to her difficulties. It seems Sam just can’t escape the drama, which is pretty typical on a soap!
Sam had to face her toxoplasmosis ordeal and then watched Jason slowly recover from a gunshot wound. Now all the twin mayhem’s happening and Sam can’t get a moment to catch her breath. Many GH fans have praised Kelly Monaco’s work over the last few months. It turns out there’s a surprising reason why Monaco is so good at her job.
Of course, Monaco is a great actress. That’s a given, but new fan event info offers more insight into how she tackles this role. Monaco shared some details about what helps her relate to Sam and draw out those emotions.
General Hospital viewers know Sam was in a frantic state for a while and it turns out that’s something Monaco struggles with as well. “I suffer from panic attacks and anxiety,” Monaco said. She added that she’s been fighting this battle for years and still deals with it “almost daily.”
Monaco talked about how her role as Sam forced her to tap into that personal struggle. She admitted that it was traumatic to connect what’s on screen with what she actually deals with. “It takes a bit to get over because you work yourself up so much,” Monaco said.
On the bright side, it allowed Monaco to give a very realistic portrayal. She’s lived it, so she knows exactly how Sam should think and feel. Monaco has really been able to get inside Sam’s head and that always leads to gripping scenes.
We could see Sam head into panicky territory again thanks to the push and pull of the two Jasons. Patient Six’s (Steve Burton) return hasn’t exactly made her life easy. However, Monaco hinted that she’d like to see some good come from Sam’s troubles. She suggested that maybe “sassy Sam” could finally come roaring back and show off her strength. What doesn’t kill Sam makes her stronger!
