General Hospital will soon air its 13,000 episode on Monday, February 24th.
In honor of another milestone for the 50 year old soap opera, the series has posted a video which contains new interview soundbytes with current GH cast members: Ryan Paevey, Maurice Benard, Rebecca Herbst and Tyler Christopher, Kathleen Gati and Emme Rylan, Sean Blakemore, plus executive producer Frank Valentini.
In addition, during the video celebration about how GH has rolled on to its 13,000 episode, retrospective clips are shown including those from last year’s revival of the Nurses Ball, and notable on-screen couples including: Luke and Laura, Steve and Audrey, Frisco and Felicia, and Bobbie and Tony. Plus, there are several clips from current day episodes of the ABC soap opera.
Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) says in the piece: “When I first started on GH, I was going to leave when I get bored. Well, it’s 21 years later and I haven’t been bored yet!”
