Recently, General Hospital viewers learned the none other than Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner) and Heather Webber (Robin Mattson) are the biological parents of Franco (Roger Howarth)! And after Heather was believed-to-be knifed to death by her own son, she returned with vengeance with kidnapping Carly(Laura Wright) and hurting Franco!
TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan sat down for lunch with Kin Shriner and Heather Webber for a fabulous chit chat on all things past, present and future about the duos time on GH as themselves and their alter-egos, including the never-before-answered question, if the duo were involved romantically back in the day? Here though are a few excepts about what the pair thought of the plot twist that made Roger Howarth their on-screen son, and if somehow there might be a Heather/Scott redux on GH?
On if they were shocked to find out Franco was Heather and Scott’s bio-son … Robin: “When I found out Heather and Scotty had a baby my first thought was, ‘How the hell did that happen?’ But (head writer) Ron Carlivati brilliantly found a window of time in GH history when it was possible.” Kin: “And if you’re gonna give Franco some parents, why bring in two new people? Robin and I have a flare for comedy. So does Roger. It makes sense.”
On if Heather is a danger to Scott, and what will happen in the future with the on-screen duo … Robin: “Heather has dirt on Scott! Ron Carlivati always finds a way. It’s, hopefully, far from over. My return to GH was initially only supposed to be a couple of episodes. Ron continues to reinvent Heather and she continues to survive no matter how many times they throw her off a building or bury her alive. Maybe she can be redeemed if there’s a way of controlling the monster within.” Kin: “It would be great if Heather went away for a minute and came back reformed and rehabilitated as a hot, sexy woman who’s more grounded in reality. It would be great to turn her into a viable love interest. I can certainly see that love reigniting between Scott and Heather. (Laughs) With the right meds.”
What did you think of the plot twist that made Franco, Heather and Scott’s son? Do you want GH to pair Heather and Scott together in the future? Do you think Heather has caused enough damage to the citizens of Port Charles, and her reign of terror should cease for now? Or, do you want to see her continue her antics? Comment below!
