"One actor who never underestimated the rapport he shares with his
co-star is Ian Buchanan, GH's natty Duke Lavery. He was stuck in a story and a set
he didn't like and was relieved he could at least play it with Finola Hughes, who plays
his television wife, Anna. 'There I was with all my hair cut off and no nice
clothes to wear,' remembers the Scotsman. 'I really felt like I'd been sent to the
back and beyond. I was so pleased that I had someone I was close to work with and
not someone I hated.' Buchanan says he and Hughes became instant fiends at his
screen test. They goofed around, talking, he says, 'in funny English accents, like
Monty Python. And we used to go out a lot dancing. She's a very
let's-go-out-to-the-movies person. I'm not.' Still, they remain close, largely
through work. 'We're so close, there's no need to go out together,' Ian
remarks. 'It's like working with your best friend. You can only take so much
of your best friend.'"
"I wanted very much to give a past to Tristan Roger's Scorpio. I had brought both Robert and Anna in. I always felt that they were so right for each other. [Bringing them back together] has gone over enormously. They are the new couple. Also, Mac (John J. York) has been a great success. I had wanted to create a new, younger hero." -Gloria Monty, on what's working on the show, Soap Opera Weekly 7/2/91

"Buying her share of The Outback. She put the entire down payment on her credit card and they've never brought it up since. This girl should be in some serious financial trouble." -Kristina Wagner in response to "What's the most foolish thing your character's ever done?" (SOD 4/1/97)
