This morning General Hospital’s departing Kimberly McCullough (Robin) and her on-screen husband Jason Thompson (Patrick) visited the set of Good Day LA to kick-off today’s 13,000 episode celebration of the ABC soap opera.
During their chat, Good Day LA host Steve Edwards recognized that some fans of GH are not happy that Kimberly is exiting the show and so too is her character of Robin. Edwards first addressed Kimberly by saying, “Every time I talk to you, you are either leaving or coming back that show. I am very confused!” To which Kimberly replied, “I like to keep people on their toes.”
Next, McCullough revealed to Edwards that she was indeed leaving GH to continue the directing program she is through ABC and that she will be shawdowing as a director on Grey’s Anatomy. Edwards also asked if Kimberly would return to the ‘well” (GH) again, to which she replied, “I hope so, yes. The ‘well” has been good to me.”
Jason Thompson chimed in by relating his support of his long time co-star and good friend: “I am always excited for Kimberly to follow her dreams. I believe in her, probably more than she believes in herself, sometimes. We’ve developed an amazing relationship over the time we have been working together. I am always a big fan of hers. I love when she comes back, selfishly, because we work well together, but I am always happy when she goes and does her thing.”
