Kimberly McCullough is returning to “General Hospital” as Robin Scorpio-Drake. Her return won’t be temporary. According to Soap Opera Digest on August 21, GH Executive Producer confirms that the actress has signed a contract with the show.
The news spells drama for her onscreen husband Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) who has moved on with his current girlfriend Sabrina Santiago (Teresa Castillo), but it should be a tearful reunion once the popular couple are reunited and when Robin is reunited with their daughter Emma.
Robin, who is presumed dead, was last seen alive and taken hostage by Jerry Jacks. Her father, Robert Scorpio, knows she’s alive but has been in a coma in a Switzerland hospital ever since he saw her. Valentini is thrilled to have McCullough back on a permanent basis.
“Robin is such an important part of the history of General Hospital. It will be so wonderful to see her come back and what that effect will have on the canvas.”
The character of Robin will definitely shake things up as Kimberly McCullough returns this fall.
