The last time McCullough visited GH was in December of 2017 when Robin paid a visit to Jason, who had recently returned from the dead. Since she was the one who had brought Drew back to life believing he was Jason, she found herself caught up in the tale of the two Jasons. Has she returned with more information for the brothers, or is she just here to support Anna and say goodbye to Nathan?
Before that, McCullough appeared in May of 2017 when Robin returned for the Nurses Ball and got herself kidnapped by Olivia Jerome. And she also revealed to Anna that she was pregnant, since the soap chose wrote in McCullough's real-life pregnancy!

Since 2014, McCullough has been returning to GH for appearances of varying lengths depending on the storyline and her schedule. In the past, she told Soaps In Depth that “it’s always great” to go back. “It feels like a nice little visit,” she confided. “I get excited, like I’m going on vacation sort of — a working vacation!”
In addition to her acting, McCullough has also stepped behind the camera, directing episodes of PRETTY LITTLE LIARS as well as her own project, HEY DAY, and more recently, the online series YOUTH & CONSEQUENCES and episodes of ONE DAY AT A TIME. McCullough admitted that when she returns to GH, she likes to make a point of hanging out behind the scenes as well. “I always try to pop into the booth with the director, assistant director, lighting coordinator and producers,” she reports. “That’s where I got the bug to be a director, so I usually grab one of the free chairs and sit for a while.”
