Every year, fans root for their favorites at the Daytime Emmy Awards, and are disappointed if they don’t win. This can get even trickier when there are multiple stars from the same soap nominated in the same category. But while fans may be heavily invested in the competition, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin) took to social media to reveal that the actors don’t feel the same way. “In response to those who tend to think there’a a rivalry or competitiveness within our cast, I offer you this,” he tweeted with a pic of himself and Lead Actor winner Maurice Benard (Sonny) smiling alongside Lead Actress nominees Maura West (Ava) and Laura Wright (Carly).
Although Lindstrom identified this as “a typical day at work,” it looks as though the actors are all dressed up for the annual Nurses Ball, so that probably wouldn’t be as average a day as most. “Happy to be there,” he continued. “Happy to be with each other and making TV for those who want it. We couldn’t be happier for Maurice and Hayley Erin (ex-Kiki) and Max Gail (Mike) and Patricia Bethune (ex-Mary Pat). Oh, and the extraordinary Vernee Watson (Stella), who shows us all how to do humor and dignity at the same time.”
So despite losing to Benard in the Lead actor category, Lindstrom assures viewers there are no hard feelings. “We’re honored to make the trip to the big show together,” he declared. “Congrats my friends. You are the bar we aspire to.”
Erin, who took home the trophy for Outstanding Younger Actress a this year’s ceremony, agreed with Lindstrom’s sentiment. “I think you’re the bees knees and you murdered me,” she joked. “Nothing but good vibes with this crowd.” And Gail, who won Outstanding Supporting Actor, also offered support to his castmate. “So you to say what’s true so well,” he posted.
You can definitely feel the love in the photo Lindstrom shared, and that chemistry comes through in every single episode. For more on your favorite GH stars, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
