According to Daytime Confidential, KM is leaving GH again! Read Below.
Since Kimberly McCullough returned to the iconic role of Robin Scorpio on General Hospital after making sporadic appearances for the past two years, fans have wondered whether she was truly back for the long haul. At the ABC TCA party, McCullough acknowledged she will soon be departing again to focus on her career as a director.
She warned fans may not be pleased with the way Robin exits the canvas, shared her thoughts on the much-debated Patrick-Sabrina wedding and revealed why her latest directing opportunity will keep her close to home.
Daytime Confidential: It’s no longer a secret. You are going to be departing General Hospital at least temporarily sometime soon. Was your return always scheduled to be short term?
Kimberly McCullough: Yeah. It was always supposed to be this amount of time.
DC: Should fans be concerned that they’ll never see Robin again, or will she always be a part of the show?
KM: I certainly hope so! I guess it just depends on how much[executive producer] Frank [Valentini] liked working with me.
DC: GH’s ratings have risen since your return. How does it feel knowing that you have energized the fanbase?
KM: I don’t give myself that credit. The only thing I can say is I’m happy for the show and if I was a part of that at all, I’m so grateful.
DC: Have you filmed your final episode for this go around?
KM: No. I’ve got a couple weeks left.
DC: Is it going to be tough saying goodbye again?
KM: Of course! It always is. But it’s not goodbye. It’s just see you later.
DC: Can you give us a hint about how Robin will be leaving?
KM: Robin’s leaving because of her love for another character that is not Patrick on the canvas.
DC: There were a lot of rumors that you were coming back to give Scrubs a happy ending, but you have just quashed them.
KM: They’re not ready to let Jason Thompson go. So the happy ending is that [fans] still get to see Jason Thompson.
DC: Will Scrubs fans feel a sense of closure when Robin leaves?
KM: I don’t even know if I can comment on that. They’re going to be pissed. Really. They’re going to be pissed. I’m sorry.
DC: No one’s going to be mad at you.
KM: Oh, yes they will.
Personally I don't care. I've never been a Robin fan and I think this return was boring! The most unfortunate aspect of this is the possibility of Sabrina and Patrick reuniting...ugh!
How do you feel?
