Below are pics and
scoops from Kimberly's August 31, 2006 appearance on ABC Soap
Secrets Reveal. Also, Tristan's August 2006 Soapography
has been added to here.
Caught Finola's interview on E! News
yesterday (5/10/6). I think that
upcoming scene of Anna and Robin comparing Robert and Patrick's
similarities is going to be one of my all-time favorite GH scenes.
Anna: "So, uh, your Patrick is, um,
arrogant?" Robin: "Check." Anna (pointing at
Robert): "Domineering?" Robin: "Yeah,
totally." Anna (staring at Robert): "Yeah, he has the attention span of a
gnat?" Robin nods. Reuniting Scorpio style- freakin'
hilarious. Click on the image to see more pics from the
Daytime Emmys: Wow, the GH vets were just amazing at this
year's awards show. Rick Springfield brought the crowd to the
feet, and the applause for Tristan, Emma and Finola should give
the TIIC at GH a clue who really draws the viewers. The era of
the legendary Gloria Monty was referred to several times, and so
many of those GH vets were in attendance- Ian, Finola, Tristan,
Emma, Rick, Kimberly, Jack Wagner and Anthony Geary. And anyone
who visits this site knows that I am a HUGE Robert and Anna fan
[and a huge Luke and Holly fan], but I gotta say- Tristan and
Emma looked stunning together when they walked out on stage.
Whoever does the lighting on GH must suck cuz everyone looks so
much better everywhere else, like years younger. Anyway, click
on the image to view more pics from the show. Also put up pics
from Finola's short GMA
emmy recap the next day.
a Scorpio family reunion on Soap Talk when Tristan Rogers,
Finola Hughes and Kimberly McCullough stop by to chat with Lisa
and Ty. Tristan recently returned to GH as Robert Scorpio, and
now that Finola's back, Robert, Anna and Robin Scorpio are back
together for the first time in 14 years!
Lisa and Ty want to know what it's like
for the threesome to be working together again. Tristan, Finola
and Kimberly all agree that it feels strangely familiar, and
they all fell right back into it right away. Tristan adds that
he feels like he's never been away, and now that Finola's back,
the equation is complete.
Obviously, with such beloved characters
returning to the canvas, there's a lot of pressure and high
expectations for their return. Tristan admits that he was
worried how the audience would react, and how he would fit in.
The trio reminisces about Kimberly's
audition for the role of Robin. Both Tristan and Finola were
there; the producers knew that whoever they cast would have to
be prepared to deal with Tristan's ad-libbing, according to
Finola. Tristan tries to deny it, but Finola assures the
audience that Tristan never stayed on script.
After viewing a vintage clip, the
threesome is astounded by Finola's big hair, which she refers to
as a "fourth character." And of course, Tristan and
Finola comment how cute Kimberly was as a child.
Finola recalls her first impression of
Tristan. She describes Tristan as being in his "Steve
McQueen phase," and after the two finished their first
scene, Tristan pulled Finola aside and said, "We're gonna
have a lot of fun, kid!"
Ty asks Tristan how his kids feel about
him being back on General Hospital, and Tristan admits that
they're fairly indifferent. And then, Ty asks the question
that's on everyone's mind: is Tristan's stint going to be an
indefinite stay? Tristan wryly remarks that it depends on how
they define "indefinite," so he'll just go with
whatever they have planned since he's having such a great time.
Ty and Lisa pose the same question to
Finola, who admits she doesn't know how long they'll be sticking
around General Hospital. Lisa and Ty echo the audience's
sentiment when they say they hope they stick around for a while.
It's not every day that soap opera viewers get treated to the
history and chemistry that Tristan Rogers, Finola Hughes and
Kimberly McCullough have with each other. (text from SoapTalk's
