Kimberly McCullough gets real and vulnerable as she opens up about returning to General Hospital as the role she originated back in 1985, little Robin Scorpio. McCullough made her debut on the Daytime Drama when she was just 7 years old. She played alongside the names in Daytime, such as, Finola Hughes who plays her mother, Anna Devane, Tristan Rogers who plays her father, Robert Scorpio, and John J, York, aka Uncle Mac, who raised Robin, just to name a few.
In recent years, McCullough has been on and off the set GH after her character Robin, husband Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson), and their daughter Emma Drake (Brooklyn Silzer), moved to California. Robin and Emma have been back to visit Anna a few times here and there, but McCullough has not played a large role on GH since her character moved away for work. Kimberly has been working on Directing, pulling most of her focus on being a Director rather thank actor. McCullough has directed many productions, some including, Pretty Little Liars, K.C. Undercover, Shake It Up, and more.
In previous General Hospital news and spoilers, McCullough had posted on Instagram, mentioning she had retired as an actor. Currently, McCullough tells Soaps In Depth she is open to bringing Robin back to Port Charles. She went on about how hectic her current work schedule is, and with having an almost 2 year old son, she really wants to spend her time off from directing at home. However, she does proceed to say, “No, I don’t think it;s the last you’ll see if me, but you know, I also don’t look like an actor anymore. I’ve gained weight and I’m fine with that. For me to maintain that level of fitness, it’s like being an athlete. You have to maintain it. It takes money, time, effort, and focus- and I’m focused on other things. I’m focused on my brain. I’m focused on being a mother, and on growing in other ways. And honestly, I just don’t have the time to do that right now.”
General Hospital spoilers reveal McCullough is working on her next project, Directing for the Disney Channel Original, High School Musical: The Series.
