Kin Shirner’s return to GH as Scotty Baldwin is yet another big treat for the 50th anniversary of General Hospital, April 1st, 2013. We are so excited for his return this February 19th. We are excited to see how his love triangle from many, many years ago with Laura and Luke will come in to play this time around. In a TV Guide Magazine interview with Shriner, it is revealed that we will first see Scotty appear at the Haunted Star where many of the residents of Port Charles will be for a Valentine’s Day party. The scoop is that Scotty and Luke encounter one another and things escalate pretty quickly.
Shriner also talks about the possibility of John Stamos returning to the canvas as well. He said in the interview, “I’m sure Stamos will come back because he knows GH started his career.” This to me sounds pretty promising for the return of Blackie Parrish.
On a more personal level, Kin Shriner spoke very highly of his life experiences from being part of GH. He mentions how many great friends he has made throughout the years including Genie Francis (Laura Spencer) and buddy Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe). It seems that he is very happy with the fact that Genie, Lynn, and himself were asked to rejoin General Hospital at this time. When asked about his time at General Hospital, he responding with the following, “Lynn Herring and I have had a thousand phone calls, we talk at least once a week- where we’re, like, “Wouldn’t it be great if our characters came back to Port Charles and did such-and-such.” And now it’s actually happening! (Laughs) We no longer have to imagine it with tweety birds over our heads!”
-Remember he prefers Scotty over Scott! 😉
With all this great news, I have a feeling that this will be one special year for General Hospital!
