The HIV-positive character Robin Scorpio will return to Port Charles after a lengthy stint in Paris. Kimberly McCullough, who first joined General Hospital's cast when she was just seven years old, will once more portray the beloved Robin.
"I am filled with eager anticipation to return to the role of Robin Scorpio," said McCullough. "It is so flattering to know that, after all these years, GH fans are still excited about Robin coming back to Port Charles. I can't wait to be back with my family again."
The actress's "family" is just as eager to work with her again. ABC Daytime president Brian Frons stated, "Robin Scorpio is a character that the fans have never forgotten and has ties to so many of the current stories that are playing. I am delighted that Kimberly will be reprising this role, and we can all look forward to an emotionally compelling story that will draw Robin back into the fold."
McCullough first entered the acting world at the age of seven months, when she appeared in a diaper commercial. She went on to become an accomplished dancer, lending her skills to TV's Fame and Solid Gold as well as the movie Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. McCullough honed her acting chops in Bugsy and Consenting Adults, and nabbed a Daytime Emmy for her General Hospital role when she was 11 years old. She has also appeared in TV shows such as Once & Again, The Shield, and Joan of Arcadia.
General Hospital has aired since 1963 and launched the careers of many a star, including the likes of Demi Moore, Elizabeth Taylor, Rick Springfield, John Stamos, and more. Tune in for McCullough's first day back home on Wednesday, October 12.
