Fans of General Hospital from all over the globe gathered together for the one thing that unites them as one, their passion and love for their favorite cast on daytime television! And whether they were there fearing this could be their last opportunity to get hugs, kisses, and a John Hancock from their favorite actors (who play the mobsters, doctor, nurses and fashionistas in Port Charles), or, if they were on hand to show their support and celebrate as the show begins to move into its 50th anniversary next year and its new time slot in September, there were plenty of smiles, laughs, and tears of joy on this day.
GH Fan Club President, Debbie Morris and her team, work tirelessly to put the weekend event together year after year, so that everyone has a good time and gets to meet their favorites up close and personal. And while many events surround the weekend with many of the cast having their own more intimate get-togethers with their legions of fans, there is still nothing like the Main Event on Saturday afternoon when most of the entire cast gives back to the fans who have helped the show stay on the air for 49 years.
This year and for the first time, General Hospital’s newest executive producer, Frank Valentini made a surprise and welcomed appearance and joined his cast on stage for the always entertaining Q&A session, which this year was emceed fabulously by the talented Bradford Anderson (Spinelli).
Before the Main Event, On-Air On-Soaps was in the Green Room welcoming the stars, getting some interviews, and snapping some candid shots, which you will see along with photos from the arrivals outside of the Sportsman’s Lodge in Studio City, which again played host to the annual event. All in all, we were so impressed by the friendships the fans have formed with each other though their mutual love of GH, and the respect shown to them by the cast.
