The residents of Port Charles came together this past weekend with their adoring and passionate fans from all over the world to celebrate the 50th anniversary of General Hospital, with a stellar line-up of separate cast member events, the Kickoff reception on Thursday, the Main Cast Luncheon on Saturday, and the blast from the past, Past Cast Stars reunion event on Sunday.
Many of your favorites showed up for the main event on Saturday including: Jason Thompson, Blake Gibbons, Bradford Anderson, Brandon Barash, Kirsten Storms, Teresa Castillo, Kelly Thiebaud, Parry Shen, Bryan Craig, Chad Duell, Kristen Alderson, Drew Cheetwood, Emma Samms, Kathleen Gati, Jimmy Deshler, Haley Pullos, John J. York, Lynn Herring, Michael Easton, Rebecca Herbst, Robin Mattson, Samantha Logan, Kin Shriner, Lisa LoCicero, Tequan Richmond, Laura Wright and more!
After the arrivals of the cast, General Hospital fans were delighted to see the contingent from the ABC soap as they were announced one by one to their screaming fans, and then took part in a fun Q&A hosted once again this year by John. J. York with an assist by Bradford Anderson. Anderson roamed around the room to get fans to chime in on their thoughts and ask questions of their favorite stars.
A late, yet great, arrival to the proceedings was General Hospital executive producer, Frank Valentini who joined the cast on stage and made a very special ‘thank you’ on behalf of everyone for the audiences continued support of GH, and to relay that there is some exciting moments ahead in the months to come on upcoming episodes. Following the ending of the Q&A, the stars manned their stations as they took time to sign autographs to an excited line-up of fans. Upon inspection, we actually think Michael Easton (Silas Clay, pictured here) wins the award for longest line!
