One of the most exciting returns on General Hospital is when Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) stops by Port Charles. Her latest visit began on Thursday, Oct. 27, with a short arc revolving around the funeral for Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig).
Whenever McCullough makes a cameo on GH, fans welcome her back with open arms. It always begs the question: Would McCullough ever return to the ABC soap full-time?
SoapHub.com recently conducted a poll about her character, and GH fans want more McCullough on their TV screens. But since her departure from a full-time role on the show in 2012, McCullough has been successfully pursuing a career behind the camera.
Besides attending New York University’s film program, she was also a part of ABC and the Director’s Guild of America’s Creative Talent Program, which is an organization that is “instrumental in identifying and developing creative talent with multicultural voices and perspectives.”
She’s been a huge part of the ABC fold, directing episodes of Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars and Disney Channel’s Shake It Up! and K.C. Undercover. Why doesn’t ABC Daytime give her an opportunity to direct episodes of GH?
If McCullough took on a role like this on GH, it could be huge. She has the experience with the cast and crew, she understands her role as a legacy character on GH and she has perspective on what the daytime audience is looking for in a soap.
In addition to her directing skills, McCullough is also a talented writer. We think her multifaceted career makes her a perfect fit to join the GH team in a larger capacity.
It makes you wonder if ABC Daytime has looked at the talent that’s right under their nose. Have they even given it a thought?
